Flooding leads to budget worries Taxpayers could pay the price

By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — The town of Moriah is recovering from spring floods, but the most severe pain for most residents may be yet to come. “I have a lot of real, deep concern about this year ’s and next year ’s budgets due to the devastation caused by flooding,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “We spent thousands of dollars for emergency repairs. If we don’t get help from FEMA, we’ll have to make major cuts in this year ’s budget and raise taxes next year.” FEMA, the Federal Emergency

Holocaust survivor meets Ti students Harrowing tale of hope

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — A Holocaust survivor, Murray Jaros has seen the worst of humanity. He’s also seen the best. “My story is not really about the suffering, but of the people who helped us,” Jaros said. “It’s a story of hope. What’s remarkable is not my story of survival, but what’s remarkable is what others did so I could survive.” Jaros told his story to a group of Ticonderoga High School students June 2. He came at the invitation of his friend John LaPointe, Putnam supervisor. See TICONDEROGA, page 11

Graphic novels are typically bound in longer and more durable formats than familiar comic magazines, using the same materials and methods as printed books, and they are generally sold in bookstores and specialty comic book shops rather than at news-

TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga will present the fourth annual Scots Day on Saturday, June 11. The commemoration of Scottish heritage and their contributions to 18th-century North American history runs from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A memorial ceremony honoring the 42nd Highland Regiment will take place at the Scottish Cairn on the Carillon Battlefield located at Fort Ticonderoga at 11 a.m. as part of the day’s events. The Pipes and Drums of the Atlantic Watch and the Police Pipes and Drums of Plattsburgh will perform during the day on the parade ground at noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Atlantic Watch is based in Red Bank, N.J., and has performed throughout the mid-Atlantic region and has performed for Prince Charles during one of several trips to Edinburgh, Scotland. The Police Pipes and Drums of Plattsburgh, formed in 2005, perform at police and fire functions, as well as at events throughout the North Country. The history of the Black Watch Regiment will be present-

ed through interactive living history programs throughout the day by members of a Black Watch re-enactor unit from Montreal. Highlighted programs include a living history time-line of the regiment. The group depicts its history from the 18th century through the early 21st century, with various members representing different points in the unit’s history. The 42nd Highland Regiment, also known as the Black Watch, played a crucial role at Ticonderoga during the Battle of Carillon on July 8, 1758. The regiment suffered over 50 percent casualties during the failed British assault on the French Lines at Ticonderoga during the French & Indian War. Ticonderoga continued to be an important part of the regiment’s history. During its involvement in the Iraq War, the Black Watch Regiment’s base near Basra was called “Ticonderoga.” Members of various Scottish clans will have tents and members eager to assist visitors in learning how to commence researching their Scottish roots. Clans represented will include Buchanan, Campbell, Forbes, Johnston, MacIntyre, Mackintosh, MacPherson, Murray and Rose.

Ticonderoga woman pens book experiences growing up in the eastern Adirondacks, and on the coasts of Maine and Cape Cod, where I lived and vacationed as a teenager and young adult. I decided to write about those places.” According to the book, it is “a story of growing up in the 1980s and 90s in upstate New York. It’s a story about pets and vacations, and the roundabout ways that life can lead you home. It’s a celebration of the special places that make us who we are, and of the solitary journeys that strengthened the author ’s faith in God and sense of self.”

Much of the book deals with the author ’s childhood dream of living in the wilderness, which was fulfilled when she was 10 years old when her parents built a log home in Hadley. She writes about how those three years in the woods was a bittersweet time, when her parents divorced. Then, she found comfort in drawing, riding her horse and writing the drafts of what would become her first book, “Stormwind of the North Country,” published in 2009. During the summer that the house was under construction, the author lived at her grandparents’ home in Streetroad, which she describes in the book. Local readers will also recognize her descriptions of area places such as Putnam Pond Campground, where she vacationed every summer growing up, the old Storytown in Lake George, Treadway Mountain in the Pharaoh Wilderness, and the town of Lake Luzerne, where she lived during her high school years. The author has donated a copy of “The

Jodi Auborn Forests I Called Home” to Ticonderoga’s Black Watch Memorial Library. Signed copies may be purchased at Sugar and Spice Country Shoppe in Ticonderoga.

Unions should make concessions; gov’s should stop threatening layoffs


he ongoing power struggle between the New York state governor’s office and state workers’ unions must stop if we’re ever going to have a stable state workforce. In the past few years, the governors — David Paterson in 2009 and 2010 and now Andrew Cuomo — have threatened to lay off thousands of state workers in order to make up for multi-billion-dollar shortfalls in the state budgets. This year, with the budget actually passed on time, Gov. Cuomo has built a $450 million savings in the approved 2011-12 spending plan based on union concessions. It’s a brilliant move on his part and provides leverage with union contract negotiations. The governor will either get the concessions he wants or lay off about 9,800 state workers in order to achieve the self-imposed mandate to cut $450 million. Cuomo and Paterson have each met strong opposition by the powerful public employee unions, including Council 82, CSEA and PEF. Paterson and the unions came to an agreement in 2009, after several months of wrangling, in which the governor finally pledged not to lay off state workers. It was a welcome reprieve for employees. But it didn’t last long. Just before leaving office at the end of 2010, Paterson once again threatened layoffs. And now Cuomo has picked up that ball and is running with it, all the way to the end zone and $450 million in savings. But who is right? It’s a tough call. Overall, we’d rather see the unions make concessions and prevent layoffs. The sooner, the better. Unfortunately, members of Council 82 — a union representing SUNY police and uniformed DEC personnel — recently rejected a contract that called for a wage freeze and other givebacks. We hope other unions don’t follow suit. These unions traditionally act as though they can have their cake and eat it, too: keeping jobs while not making concessions. But we’re not sure Cuomo will capitulate as easily as Paterson did in 2009. The unions have run into a stone wall this time, and if they push the governor too hard, he’ll just start cutting jobs. “The clock is ticking” he recently told reporters. New York can’t afford to lose jobs. And our North Country communities — many of which rely on state employment — can’t afford more unemployment. The economy will suffer. More importantly, our family members and neighbors who work in these public positions will suffer.

It is often the low men on the totem pole that fall victim in these situations — with salaries that least impact tax dollars and a work ethic that surpasses their superiors. That just drives more of our young from the region. The bottom line is New York’s governors need to learn the consequences of their actions. They wield the layoff ax too easily during these contract negotiations, and they are causing more harm than is necessary. Who suffers? State workers, their families, and all citizens served by our state agencies. When the governor threatens layoffs, he puts in motion an agency-by-agency assessment of departments and divisions, listing them by priority. Sometimes, certain staff positions are targeted for potential layoffs. Yet nobody really knows who will be cut in the end, if anybody. So, logically, people get emotional. They start protecting themselves by seeking other employment “just in case.” Morale suffers tremendously through the entire state workforce. And, no matter how hard managers try to keep their employees on task, production suffers. It’s downright depressing. Sometimes people leave state jobs “just in case” and their positions are eliminated. And who wins? Certainly not taxpayers. As sure as tax time comes around every April, governors keep threatening layoffs. While the annual wave of job insecurity has undoubtedly weeded out some of the less productive state workers, it has also taken its toll on the majority of loyal, hardworking ones. We agree with Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury, that layoffs should be a last resort. Little’s spokesman, Dan MacEntee, recently spoke with this editorial board and told us that the senator hopes New York’s public unions can work successfully with the governor to help the state meet its budgetary goals during these tough economic times. We urge the union leaders and members to approve contracts that help save the state $450 million. And, we ask Gov. Cuomo, and all those who are elected governor in the future, to stop using the harmful negotiation tactic of threatening layoffs.

This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Lou V arricchio, Keith Lobdell, Jeremiah Papineau, Andy Flynn and John Gereau. Comments may be directed to

GUESTVIEWPOINT Tax cap doesn’t go far enough


n their desperate quest for something— anything—that might alleviate the property tax crisis, taxpayers are being led to believe Albany's proposed property tax cap is the answer to their prayers. Unfortunately, in a single-minded push for the cap, the current administration has discouraged debate and simply ignored many of the New Yorkers most overwhelmed by property taxes. They are the several hundred thousand residents already paying unsustainable, doubledigit percentages of their income in property tax. Those residents will get no relief from the cap. If you can’t afford your taxes today, you’re unlikely to find them more affordable when they keep rising each year, as the cap provides. Moreover, the cap’s proponents generally avoid explaining that the “tax cap” only caps the increase in tax levy -- not your tax bill. A two percent cap on the tax levy can translate into a double-digit increase in your individual bill in a given year, due to individual assessment changes, reapportionment of the tax levy, etc. Only the property tax relief measure known as a circuit breaker can help our most overburdened middle-class residents. Sometimes described as an “individual cap,” it effectively limits the net amount of household income most residents would have to pay in total property tax on their home by allowing a state income tax credit for part of the property tax paid over a designated percentage of income, usually in the six to nine percent range. Renters, who pay taxes indirectly through the landlord, may also qualify. Bipartisan legislation we support (S912,

We’re more than a newspaper, We’re a community service.

We value your comments and suggestions concerning all aspects of this publication.

A5542) would initially cover families with household incomes up to $100,000 ($250,000 when fully phased in) and is urgent to save homes and to help stem the middle-class flight from our state. Legislation just introduced (S4171, A7673) provides a responsible blueprint for state funding of the circuit breaker in our austere fiscal environment. While a circuit breaker does not reduce spending, it will not lead to higher local budgets as STAR is thought to have done. That’s because of the way the circuit breaker benefit is structured and because the credit would cover only 70 percent of the property tax paid above the income percentage. The beneficiary’s 30 percent “co-pay” would ensure continued vigilance against budget creep. Proponents of the tax cap argue that the cap will limit spending. That may happen, depending largely on local situations. The limit may end up as a help or a hindrance, depending on your point of view and the impact on services you may need or want. But whatever merit one perceives in a cap, it is misleading to portray it as “property tax relief” when it will only increase property taxes. More and more New Yorkers are expressing concern over the drawbacks and limitations of a cap, especially without mandate relief and a circuit breaker. Albany should broaden the dialogue in the remaining days of the legislative session and enact a more comprehensive solution to the property tax crisis.

Family thankful To the Times of Ti: On May 29 a fairly large group of people donated their time and money to help out a friend, Ed Jordan. Well to us he is more then a friend..he is a husband, a dad, a brother, a pa pa, and an uncle. We have recently found out that this wonderful man had been diagnosed with lung cancer and it has devastated not just our family but many others as well. We would just like to take the time to thank the family of Chet Frasier who was a very dear friend and sadly passed not more then a few years ago. Although tears were shed on the 29th there was also the sounds of laughter, and music..strangers who became lifelong friends and lifelong friends who became family. Words can never express what this day meant to us and what it will always mean. Again a big thank you to all who donated to this cause and, not only this particular cause, but also in memory of Chet Frasier and “Buzzy” Manning whom are greatly missed and were truly amazing men. It is nice to know that there are still people in this world who care about others as much or more then they do themselves. Thank you so very

much for all you have done and have continued to do. The amazing Frasier girls, Bobby, Brandie, Karen and Mimi, American Legion Post 224 and all its members, the Hague Fish and Game Club and many more. Our love goes to you along with many thanks. Edward and Nancy Jordan and family Hague

MINEVILLE—Another sad catastrophe occurred here on Tuesday of last week, which has cast gloom over the whole neighborhood and plunged two families into deep affliction. After the men had quit work at 6 o’clock, Thomas Waldruss, a put boss in one of the pits at New Bed mine, and a helper named George Gilfoy, as was their usual custom, remained in the pit to fire a number of holes that had been drilled during the afternoon. They had fired a hole twice and it had missed, or in mining phrase had blown out without getting any ore, and they had charged it the third time and had cut the fuse, when it exploded, killing Gilfoy instantly, and it is feared fatally injuring Waldruss. One of his eyes is totally destroyed and the other is so badly injured that he can scarcely discern a lighted lump when it is passed before his eyes. Both were men with families, dependent on their day’s labor for their support. SCHROON RIVER—Peter C. Welch was arrested last Monday by constable Duntley for crime of rape, brought before justice Wakefield-plead not guilty, and asked for time to get counsel, constable gave him twenty-four hours. Before the time expired he made his escape. While at Bloomingdale’s store he refused to go with the constable, and drew an axe and told him to stand off. The constable followed him to his house, shot at him once, and took dinner with him. After dinner Welch went out to grease his wagon, but instead of greasing the wagon he made for the woods. The constable shat at him again, and returned to Schroon River without the prisoner. Welch was rearrested last Thursday at North Creek. By John Conley, brought back to Root’s Hotel, and examined, found guilty, and taken to the county jail to await the action of the next court.

TICONDEROGA—The Essex county spelling Bee was held in Elizabethtown Saturday, June 4th. There were fifteen contestants, representing various sections of the County. Catherine Pezzula, 13 years old, of Ticonderoga won first place with a perfect score. Betty Clark, also of Ticonderoga, was second, and Evelyn DeZalia of North Hudson was third. The winner will attend the State Fair in Syracuse and compete in a State contest to be held August 30. WESTPORT-The Essex County Firemen’s Association are making plans for a monster Fourth of July celebration and Field Day to be held at the Westport Fair Grounds, on Monday, July 4th. A tentative program calls for an all day affair, including an amateur program in the evening. Baseball will be one feature. Harness races will be in charge of Sheriff Percy Egglefield, and he has been promised an excellent card. Something new will be competitive fire drills by different villages and towns. A boot, coat, and helmet race will provide many laughs. A model T Ford race, ladder climbing events, hose races, fire truck displays, etc. the American Legion Posts of the County are to be invited to participate in the parade. Also the various bands and the school drum and bugle corps in the county. An amateur search for talent will be an early evening feature and arrangements are being made with different radio celebrities for personal appearances. The day will be climaxed with a wonderful display of fireworks and the price of admission will be within the reach of everyone. It will be one of the biggest celebrations to be staged in Essex County in many years.

NORTH ELBA—For the second successive week end, Henry J. Kaiser has visited Lake Placid to check on the progress of his two big speed boats. Guy Lombardo also appeared here Saturday to try out the massive 32-foot Aluminum first, with which he will try to break the world’s mile straightaway record in the time trials scheduled Saturday and Sunday. A mile course has been laid out on the lake by surveyors employed by the Chamber of Commerce. The engineers had to make many traverses by triangulation before they finally established an exact measured mile that could be certified to American power Boat Association, whose sanction is necessary for the trials. State Troopers will be in charge of the lake on the days of the speed trials, when Lombardo will shoot at the world’s mark of 141.75 m. p. h. established a decade ago by the late Sir Malcolm Campbell and his famed Bluebird. The smaller Kaiser craft, Hot Metal, being prepped for the Gold Cup races at Detroit on July 2, nearly came to grief last week when the engine blew a connecting rod through the crankcase during a trial spin. However, a new engine was rushed up from New York by special truck, and the speedster was back in the water for test runs again Monday. The Aluminum First is believed to have a potential speed of 160 m.p.h. with its 3,000 horsepower engine and twin propellers. Lombardo only had the throttle half open last Saturday, but even then the sleek craft seemed to be moving at incredible speed. During one test run the speed was estimated from 90 to 100 m.p.h. It is understood the trials will be carried on during most of Saturday and Sunday, with the best heat to count for the record.

Letters to the Editor

Oppose Ti school budget To the Times of Ti: The revised (Ticonderoga) school budget will be voted on June 21. The new budget has $88,000 of new additional cuts which are in areas of insignificance. I bet these new cuts didn’t take long to come up with: Retirement EMS, $39,000; FMLA HS, $18,000; Operations and Maintenance, $20,000; Transportation, $10,000; Central Office, $1,000; total $88,000. Vote no for this budget on June 21. The school has used scare tactics and misconceptions during the development of the 2011 budget. First they said that there would be a 23 percent tax increase if the budget was not trimmed, but they failed to add that this was calculated without the school revenue included in the budget. This is a misconception and scare tactic because, obviously, the revenue decreases the budget and the tax levy. Second, they said the elementary school principle would not be replaced, but I understand the school has formed a committee to recommend a new replacement. My sources also have informed me the summer program manager was told that her summer program people better vote yes to the budget or the summer program would be charged a significant amount of money for school support. Also, what do you want to bet the elementary school teacher that retired (above) will be replaced? If so would that be right after listing her salary as budget deduction? By the way the $39,000 salary listed seems low. Are they afraid to disclose the real salary or are they taking a partial deduction? Does anyone know what the school board’s “Mission statement” is? Aren’t they supposed to be representing the voters after all they are elected? Just wondering. Vote no again for the modified budget. The silent majority needs not to speak out. Get out and vote. Bring two friends with you. Get involved. June 7, revised budget available to public; June 14, public hearing in the elementary school auditorium 7; June 21, Revote, THS and Hague CC, 12-8; June 21, regular BOE meeting, accept results. Tom Allen Ticonderoga


Reflections Reflections

by Joan Daby, Historian

Letters give glimpse into Moriah’s past The 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. “The next pair were Adelaide (Betsy Ann) and Emily, two years apart. Adelaide was a blond and Emily a decided brunette and they were also perfect opposites in character. Addie was very persistent in whatever she undertook, which was usually something beyond her capacity and which she had been told she could not do, and if she failed, she was never troubled over it, and if her kind attentions were not appreciated, it amused her greatly; and if they were angry with her, as sometimes happened, she would hold her sides with laughter. But the work which she was expected to do was generally left till a more convenient season. She often planned great things but, after getting her materials around, would decide she did not feel like it and leave things as they were and feel sorry that someone had been to the trouble to put things to rights when she going to do it. She had golden, tightly curled hair, grey eyes and a pink complexion. She was amiable in disposition but would not be driven or imposed on.

Emily was very dark. I remember her when a few months old. Before the days of baby-jumpers, they used a sapling fastened to a ring in the ceiling at the large end and again at the middle. A harness was made and fastened to the small end and attached to a band with shoulder pieces, which were around the child and a strip brought up in front which without brings seat support to the child and giving a little kick with the foot, it would send her up, the sapling being very elastic. It was good exercise without bearing their weight on their feet. Her hair was dark and straight and Father, when she was older, would call her his little “Indian girl” much to her delight and would Whoop to her. She was quick-tempered like all her dark sisters. She was easily imposed upon as you will see. She would not stand up for herself — except in the chimney-corner, where she planned wonderful feats of valor but, when confronted with the enemy, had nothing to say. Em did not like to be outdone and would follow Addie to the tops of houses and sit on the ridgepole — Addie having distinguished herself by climbing to the top of a woodshed before she could walk. Addie, being older, thought herself competent to guide her younger sister and generally emphasized her remarks by saying, “You must mind me — mother said so,” which she had been told once to do. Sometimes, after getting Em so angry that she was obliged to resort to profanity, she would start downstairs to tell mother and Em would throw boots, shoes and whatever came to hand after her and was often punished before Mother knew of the provocation. Notwithstanding all this, she had great faith in her. Addie once told her if she would eat a raw potato, she would; which she did — but Addie ate a boiled one instead. Another time, Addie was invited to a party and Em cried to go. When Addie came home, she told her she had brought her a cookie because the woman was so kind to send it to her. This pacified her and she enjoyed the cookie because the woman was so kind to send it to her — but she was very angry when Addie informed her that it was a yeast cake which she got from the pantry.” Joan Daby is town of Moriah historian.

Area not as picturesque To the Times of Ti: When I first moved in to Keene Valley in the 1970s, both sides of Route 73, for the most part, were beautiful meadows allowing great views of the mountains and surrounding community. That is not the case today, and it makes me sad to lose that spectacular drive. A very big thank you to those who have continued to mow their fields and a plea to the rest to please do not let the forest close in on us. You might also write to the DEC or DOT about the field at the bottom of Spruce Hill which they are supposed to mow every other year and did not last year (third year) so have a big job to do this year and I think we should insist they do it and cut down the many little trees and other junk that is growing on the flats. One of the great glories of Keene Valley has long been the lovely views of field and forest in the distance, something that exists in abundance in Vermont. It was almost breathtaking when I drove to Fletcher-Allen via Spear Road last week with Spring popping out all over. Louise L. Gregg Keene Valley

TICONDEROGA — The second annual Ticonderoga street art project can be seen downtown. Two new chairs have been painted and are on display in the window of Rathbun’s Jewelers. Two other chairs are on the sidewalk in front of Burleigh’s Luncheonette. The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership invites people to “Relax in the Adirondacks.” “We encourage all our local merchants, past sponsors, artists and anyone else who is interested to participate in this exciting project in an effort to raise money for many worthwhile downtown improvements,” said Bob Dedrick, TMSP promotions committee chairman. “We are decorating the sidewalks and stores with hand-painted, hand-crafted Adirondack chairs in two sizes, according to the available display space. Sponsors may choose from an adult size chair by Don Farleigh or child’s size chair by Jim Hall. Strictly for this TMSP project, both crafters are offering a special reduced price of $65. “Last year’s ‘soldiers’ art project was very successful and we are looking forward to our second annual street art project being even bigger and better,” Dedrick said. “We already have over 30 sponsors signed up to participate. We will be auctioning the Adirondack chairs in the fall with all proceeds to help support TMSP projects.” People seeking more information or wishing to participate can contact Dedrick at 585-7408, Sue Rathbun at 585-9721 or Nancy Kelley at 585-7149. Information is also available online at A sponsor’s check should be made out to Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership and dropped off at Rathbun Jewelers.

The Ticonderoga Teachers Association decided to assist the district by agreeing to forgo most of its contractual wage increases. Those concessions totalled $320,000. Teachers were to receive a 5.73 percent wage increase but agreed to waive 85 percent of their raises and skip step increases in their salaries. They also agreed to freeze extracurricular activity pay. Those concessions, though, weren’t enough to prevent job loses in the proposed budget. The elementary school principal position, an elementary reading teacher, a kindergarten teacher and a teaching assistant were to be eliminated through attrition. Two teachers and a teaching assistant were to be eliminated by lay off. Three other teachers and a teaching assistant were to become half-time positions. District administrators have agreed to a pay freeze. While cuts dominated the proposed budget, there were a few spending increases. Fuel costs for next year are anticipated to increase $25,000 and employee retirement costs are up 14 percent. If the budget is again rejected state law requires the district to adopt a contingency budget. The initial proposed $19 million spending plan was defeated, 499-443, in voting May 17. Ticonderoga has 904 students and employs about 200 people full- and part-time.

posed 2011-12 budget that was rejected by residents May 17. The new proposal totals $18,997,947 and calls for a 3.9 increase in the tax levy. The budget re-vote will be Tuesday, June 21, noon to 8 p.m. in the Ticonderoga High School lobby and at the Hague Community Center. A public hearing on the proposed spending plan will be held Tuesday, June 14, at 7 p.m. at the Ti Elementary-Middle School auditorium. Only registered voters can cast ballots. A voter registration day will be held Tuesday, June 14, 1 to 5 p.m. in the Ti High lobby and at the Hague Community Center. The revised budget proposal cuts $57,000 in teacher costs. The remainder of the $88,000 in additional cuts come in equipment purchases, snow removal, radios and a computer for the central office. “We received a retirement and a maternity leave after the vote, which created about $57,000 in breakage and staff re-organization,” Superintendent John McDonald said. “The remainder is in equipment that we desperately need, but probably would not meet the criteria for contingency.” Cuts in the initial proposal budget included reductions in textbooks, the district newsletter, library, internal auditing, computers, transportation, athletics, summer school, the annual Whale Watch trip and other items totalling $242,319.

Ticonderoga • Times of Ti - 11

Ticonderoga from page 1 “He has an amazing story,” LaPointe said. “I think everyone should hear it. I’m glad he was able to come to Ti.” A summer day in 1941 the 8-year-old Jaros was outside when he heard a noise in the sky. It was a plane, the first he had ever seen in rural Poland. Moments later, bombs began to fall. “We lived in a very rural, small town,” he said. “We didn’t have electricity or communication with other towns. I didn’t even know there was a war.” Soon the German army arrived, setting up camp near his home. The Nazi war machine was little more than a curiosity for Jaros. “They had tanks, trucks, machine guns,” he recalled. “I’d never seen any of those things. They never threatened us.” That changed that fall when German SS officers arrived. The SS, the Schutzstaffel, were a special unit assigned the task of identifying and eliminating threats to the Third Reich. It became infamous for its war crimes and for advocating the Final Solution — the execution of 6 million Jews. One night a few SS officers and a group of collaborators identified the Jaros family as Jewish and broke into their home. As Jaros and a young cousin watched, his grandmother was beaten. She eventually died of her injuries. His mother and father were stripped naked, beaten and tortured as the Nazis demanded gold and money — which the Jaros family didn’t have. When the pain became too much and the parents passed out, the intruders threw water on them and repeated the process. “I wanted to do something; I wanted to help my parents,” Jaros said. “But I couldn’t move. My feet were stuck to the floor. I’ll never forget the cries, the painful screams. They tore out my father ’s toe nails.” When the SS gave up their pursuit of gold, the Jaros family was placed in a truck and taken to the local school. There they found the town’s Jews, all locked in the building. They were held several days without food or water. During that time a local priest was allowed to visit. A friend of Jaros family, he

She was known for her “I whipped a Rosary out of my pocket and compassion and kindness, allowing people started saying the Rosary in Polish,” Jaros to buy on credit and giving a little extra said. “That was one of the scariest mowhen people made purchases. Realizing the plight of the Jaros family and others in the ghetto, the friendly priest visited area farmers asking them to provide food for the Jews. “Belka was good to you,” the priest would tell farmers. “Now, you must be good to Belka.” The plea worked and the priest was able to smuggle food and water into the ghetto for a year. One night in 1942 a few men snuck into the ghetto with alarming news. All the Jews in a nearby ghetto — hundreds — had been executed. The Germans were systematically working their way toward the Jaros family. “A plan was made to escape,” Jaros recalled. The priest who had smuggled in food, helped arrange an attack by partisans away from the ghetto as a diversion. When the German guards responded to the attack, about half the Jews escaped into the nearby woods. “There were people who decided to stay behind,” Jaros said. “Some had sick or elderly relatives and they stayed to care for them. If my grandmother had not died we would have stayed. Others were afraid and others didn’t believe the stories of the executions. All of those who stayed behind were executed.” Jaros’ parents decided to join with the partisans and fight the Nazis. To ensure the safety of their son and niece they asked a local farmer to take in the children and pretend they were their own. Jaros was forced (Exit 19 off I-87, Turn Right, to pose as a girl, wearing dresses. He tied a

They stayed there two years until the war ended, foraging for food and medicine while surviving harsh Polish winters. Jaros asked students if they had seen the movie “Defiance.” The 2008 movie tells the story of the Bielski brothers, who led a band of Jews into the Polish woods to avoid the Nazis. They are credited with saving thousands of Jewish lives. “That’s my story, our story,” Jaros said of the movie. “That’s the way we lived. It’s 98 percent true. It actually happened. When the Germans got near we would hide in the swamps. It was a difficult life, but we See TICONDEROGA, page 15

Ticonderoga from page 11 survived.” After the war Jaros and his family returned to their hometown. There they found a mass grave containing the bodies of those who had stayed behind in the ghetto. Jaros and others exhumed the bodies, giving each a proper burial. “It was unbelievable,” he said. “We would put a corpse on a blanket, and say, ‘Oh, that’s so and so.’” With their home destroyed the family worked their way to the United States-sector of Berlin. They lived in a camp for displaced people awaiting visas to come to North America. In 1948 Jaros received a visa to move to Canada. He was 15 and went alone to Toronto since his parents had not yet been approved for visas. In 1951 the rest of his family was allowed to move to the United States,

settling in Schenectady. He soon joined them. Jaros eventually became a lawyer. “After the way, while I was back in our town, a number of Nazi collaborators and Nazi soldiers were on trial for war crimes,” he said. “I and a few other kids were able to sneak into the court and watch the proceedings. Watching the attorneys make their case was like watching magic. I decided I wanted to be a lawyer.” He is a special counsel to the New York State Association of Towns. That’s where he met LaPointe, who is president of the organization. Jaros has been a member of the Holocaust Survivors Friends and Educational Center in Albany for years. The group provides speakers so people can learn the lessons of the Holocaust. Jaros is the last survivor giving the talks. “It’s good that students learn about the Holocaust in school,” he said. “I think it helps, though, when they can put a face on

it. I lived it. I can tell them what it was really like. It’s important for people to remember this happened so that it’ll never happen again. “I’ve seen the horrendous and terrible ways human beings treated and mistreated each other,” he said. “I’ve also seen amazing kindness in the face of extreme danger. I

know the goodness in people. These are important lessons.” Ti High English and history classes sat in stunned silence as Jaros related his story. “As teachers we can only tell our students about the events that happened,” Amy Crannell, Ti English teacher said. “Mr. Jaros can tell us so much more.” Jennell Coffin, a senior at Ticonderoga H igh S chool, stands with her w ork at a student ar t show being held in conjunction with Fort Ticonderoga’s newlyopened special exhibition, “The Art ofWar: Ticonderoga as Experienced thr ough the E yes of America’s Great Artists.”The student sho w will be on displa y during June. The fort exhibit will be on displa y through Oct. 20. Both are located in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center. Photo by Nancy Frasier

Police Report Schroon house burns An unoccupied house on Schroon Lake was destroyed in an early morning fire June 2. There were no injuries in the blaze at 35 Adirondack Road, a seasonal home belonging to Michael Carroll of Delmar. At 5:25 a.m., Schroon Lake Volunteer Fire Department firefighters received a report from an automatic alarm at the house. When they arrived, they found the two-story structure fully engulfed in flames. A garage that was not attached to the house was saved, although the home was lost. The cause of the fire was still under investigation. Firefighters from Horicon, Pottersville, North Hudson and Chilson were on the scene.

SCHROON LAKE — Curtis Lumber will host its second annual pet adoption day Saturday, June 18, across all 22 retail stores located throughout New York State and Vermont — including Schroon Lake. The event is called “Curtis Lumber PetA-Palooza.” Each store will host multiple pet adoptions/rescue groups. Many adoption rates will also be lowered for the day. Hundreds of animals from over 70 shelters and rescue groups will be available for adoption including cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, birds and horses. There will also be pet service providers in attendance such as local veterinarians, groomers, pet sitters and trainers. Free Price Chopper goodie bags with each adoption filled with food, toys, leashes, coupons and more will be given out by Curtis Lumber to all adopters that day. Last year’s event resulted in over 500 animals finding new forever homes. Curtis Lumber’s President and Owner Jay Curtis and wife Kendra, along with the

Library book store to open June 15 SCHROON LAKE — The used-book store sponsored by the Friends of the Schroon Lake Library will open for the season on Wednesday, June 15, at 10:00 am. As a special feature, all books will be half price for sale days in June. This season, the store, which is located in the basement of the Schroon Lake Health Center, will be open two days a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Additional hours are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, July 15 and 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the Schroon Lake Arts and Crafts Fair. The last day of the season will be Saturday, Sept. 3. The book store will also be open Saturday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of the Adirondack Marathon events for that weekend. During the summer there will be “author days” when the books of a specific author will be featured at bargain prices. Volunteers have been organizing the materials, donations from the public and library discards. There are over 10,000 items including paperback books, hard cover books, fiction, non-fiction, adult and children, and other media such as videotapes, DVDs, CDs, audio books and cassette tapes. All profits from the used book store benefit the programs and collection of the Schroon Lake Public Library.

Schroon Lake from page 1 portobello mushroom. Helen Wildman, SLA president, will accept the honor from Laura Donaldson, chamber president. It’s not the first time the chamber has decided to honor an entire organization. Last year the chamber cited the Schroon Lake Fish & Game Club. Several years ago the Schroon Lake Ambulance Service was honored. The Schroon Lake Association traces its roots to 1911. “One hundred years ago this year, the first president of the association, George Welwood Murray, expressed a concern of many; the lake was slipping through their fingers,” said Nancy Belluscio, SLA secretary. “Since its inception, this volunteer group of dedicated year-round and seasonal residents has focused on preserving our lake to the benefit of all. Lester Speiser, a former president and vice president, has illustrated this in his pamphlet, ‘The Rescue of a Lake called Schroon’.” The Schroon Lake Association was formed in 1911 by 36 people concerned about the life and purity of the lake. “For 100 years, volunteers have come together to preserve and protect Schroon Lake,” Belluscio said. In the past century the SLA campaigned for an East Shore Road; it was involved in the first massive campaign against acid rain; stopped the use of harmful pesticides near the shore; and has helped maintain the concept of sustainable and environmentally safe development. The association has also funded the testing of the lake and the harvesting of invasive plants like purple loosestrife and Eurasian Water Milfoil. The Schroon Lake Association will celebrate is centennial July 17, the day after the annual association craft fair, 1 to 5 p.m. in the town park near the boathouse and bandstand. Helen Wildman, SLA president, will open the event with a welcome to dignitaries and attendees. There will be ongoing displays featuring a time line of the association’s accomplishments, a video about the organization, information about the current ecological issues that threaten the lake, and the newly-adopted lake management plan. Music, a scavenger hunt, a performance by the SLA Aquanauts, food and beverage will also be part of the event. A time

Ti man charged The Warren County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a burglary in progress at the Budget Inn, State Route 9, in the Town of Queensbury June 3. Following an investigation, officers arrested Darrell W. LaFrance Jr., age 36, of 51 Park Avenue, Ticonderoga. LaFrance was charged with burglary in the second degree, a Class C felony, as well as criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a Class A misdemeanor. LaFrance was located on the property and was taken into custody without incident. He was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court and was remanded to the Warren County Correctional Facility for lack of $20,000 cash bail. He is to re-appear in Queensbury Town Court later this month.

The Schroon Lake Association is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and protecting the welfare of Schroon Lake, the Schroon River, and the watershed area. Since its founding in 1911, the association’s motto has been “The purity of the lake; the welfare of the town.”

Moriah • Times of Ti - 21

Landlords to be held responsible Trash concerns

By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — Landlords are now responsible for garbage at their apartment buildings in Moriah. Facing a growing cost to dispose of neglected trash, the town has turned to the New York State building codes for help. The state makes property owners, including landlords, responsible for garbage disposal. Moriah officials hope enforcement of the state code will alleviate a problem in the community. “People would call complaining about garbage piling up in their neighborhood,” Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “We would have our codes enforcement officer investigate, but people won’t do anything. It would become a public health issue, so the town would remove the garbage.” Scozzafava said the town has spent $8,000 since 2000 to remove trash from private residences and dispose of it. “When you get to the point where there are rats, its stinks and it keeps piling up you have to do something,” Scozzafava said. “You can’t stand by and let a health hazard develop. Besides, it’s not fair to the neighbors.” Most of the trash problems have been with apartments dwellers, he said. Initially Moriah officials decided to add the trash disposal costs on to property tax bills. They learned that couldn’t be done until legal remedies were exhausted. That meant hiring an attorney and going to court. “An attorney would cost us $150-175 an hour,” Scozzafava said. “It wouldn’t be long before we were spending more money than we hoped to recoup.” Further investigation led Moriah officials to the state building code that requires landlords to keep trash containers at apartments and makes them responsible for disposal. “Hopefully this will solve the problem,” Scozzafava said.

Port Henry from page 1 Management Agency, has toured Moriah to inspect the flood damage. Local officials hope the agency will provide money to off-set the natural disaster ’s costs. Through May 17, Moriah had spent $40,000 in materials and another $10,000 in overtime pay to make emergency repairs to roads damaged by spring floods. The total cost of the emergency repairs is still being tabulated. “And these are only temporary repairs,” Scozzafava said. “We still have to make permanent repairs to roads, shoulders, culverts, etc. This is going to be very expensive.” Not only did the flooding force Moriah to spend money, it is preventing the town from making money at the town-owned Bulwagga Bay campground. The 2011 Moriah budget anticipates $280,000 in revenue from the campground to offset local taxes. “If that money doesn’t come in we have a huge gap in our budget,” Scozzafava said. “We’re looking at a huge economic loss at the campground. “We are so dependent on that campsite to balance our budget that a catastrophic event like this is a major problem,” he said. Record flooding in Lake Champlain kept the campground from opening as scheduled May 1 and to date only about 50 of 175 sites are open. Most of the campsites at Bulwagga Bay are rented seasonally. At this point

there are no plans to refund campers for the shortened season, which has angered some summer visitors. “We don’t have any control over the weather,” Scozzafava said. “For the most part the campers have been very understanding, although some are upset and I understand that.” A one-month refund to seasonal campers for May would cost Moriah about $30,000. Scozzafava has been in contact with the town insurance carrier to see if the community is covered for economic loss from flooding. If so, the town will consider a refund for campers unable to use the facility. In the meantime, the town

board has already decided to freeze rates at Bulwagga Bay for 2012 and 2013 as a way of making up the 2011 loss to seasonal campers. “That won’t make everyone happy, but it’s the best we can do right now,” Scozzafava said. There is also the possibility some campers may decide not to pay for this season. Deposits have been paid, but the remainder of the seasonal camping fees are still outstanding. There were some campers left at Bulwagga Bay during the winter that were damaged by the flooding this spring. The owners were no-

Crown Point photographer’s work to be given away George King family to distribute photos

By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — George King died last fall, but his family hopes his life-long passion lives on. The Crown Point man, who died at age 94 Oct. 5, 2010, was a photographer. He left behind hundreds — maybe thousands — of photos that tell the area’s history. His family will be giving those photos away 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at King’s home at 886 Bradford Hill Road. “I will be spending the week of June 1319 at George’s and I am planning on having the photo distribution on Saturday,” said Mary Lou Chotkowski, a relative. “I hope a lot of people come out and find pictures of loved ones.” King was born in Port Henry and moved to Crown Point, where he lived most of his life. He operated King Electric for many years until taking a job at Moses-Ludington Hospital. During the years he worked in many of the area’s landmark buildings. He wired the Cor- George King died last fall , leaving behind hundr eds — ner Market in Ticonderoga and the Ham- maybe thousands — of photos that tell the area’s histomond Library in Crown Point. ry. His family will be giving those photos away 9 a.m. to All the time he was doing electrical 3 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at King’s home at 886 Bradford work, he was also taking photos. Hill Road. “The pictures were just a hobby,” King said in a 2006 Times of Ti article. “People knew I liked to take pictures, so they’d ask me to take pictures of their children and family. Then their neighbors would come over and I’d take their pictures, too. I took a lot of pictures.” Besides photos of families from Mineville to Ticonderoga, King also took school pictures, prom photos and shots of local buildings and businesses. “I just thought those things were interesting,” he said. King meticulously saved each of his photos, each one marked with the name and date of the subject. All those photos will be available June 18. One of his prize collections was a series of photos from Moses-Ludington Hospital, where he worked from 1968 until he retired in 1979. He took a photo of every MLH employee during the period. “It was just an idea; I wanted to get a picture of everyone I worked with,” King said. “Most of them liked to have their picture taken. There were a few that were stubborn. “I really enjoyed working there and all the people I worked with,” he added. “Those pictures mean a lot.” There are photos of the Penfield Museum — before it was a museum. And there are photos of the Crown Point fish hatchery when it was a manufacturing plant.

Crown Point finishing website By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — The town of Crown Point has entered cyberspace. The official town website, its first ever, is online at — although it’s still under construction. A completed website is expected to be launched by June 1. The site has a calendar of events and listing of local attractions. It also contains local government information such as town board meeting minutes, the supervisor ’s newsletter and forms routinely used by residents. Still under construction are links to local businesses, accommodations and local information. A committee is now working to finish the site. “If anyone has a business in Crown Point that they would like listed on the website, they may send up to 10 lines of information to,” said Laurie Harvey, who is working on the web project. “They may add a link to their own website if they have one. “If someone does not have access to the internet, there is also a pre-addressed paper form that can be mailed in,” Harvey added. “These forms are available at Hap’s, Citgo, Frenchman’s and the town offices bulletin board. “This service is free and is not competition with the local chamber,” she said. “It is an additional way to get your business name out to everyone who will go on to the town of Crown Point website.” A town website and improved communication were key planks on the platform of Supervisor Bethany Kosmider when she sought office. Since being elected she has created a newsletter for residents, worked to establish a local cable television access channel to televise town board meetings and events, and sought the creation of a town website. “The site is up, just not finished,” Kosmider said. “It will have forms that can be downloaded, information about all town govern-

ment, contact information, newsletters and minutes of board meetings. It will have a listing of businesses and attractions, lodging, etc. We hope to have this done by the end of this month – June at the latest. I have some new volunteers that are helping to get this finished.”

Thrift shop opens for season CROWN POINT — Second Blessings Thrift Center has opened for the season. Operated by the First Congregational Church, the shop will be open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The schedule may expand as summer comes. Appointments will also be accommodated. Second Blessings, now in its fourth year, is housed in the Hammond Chapel of Crown Point. Located on the corner of Route 9N and Creek Road, the building was first build as a General Hammond’s home and later given to First Congregational Church. The building was the first home of the Hammond Library and has served as a Church School Annex as well as having accommodate many civic functions. Second Blessings Ministry opened to the public for the first time in 2008. Second Blessings has received many donations from local individuals of clothing, household goods and nick-knacks. Continued donations of clean, useful items will be accepted only when the store is open or by appointment. The ministry will continue to be run on a donations-only basis. “Wishing to maximize our ability to meet the needs of our customers, we believe that this will open the door to many who might not be able to shop with us,” Pastor David Hirtle said. “We invite the community to stop by, shop and chit-chat with the staff. , have fun and enjoy the second blessings that these items will bring.” Volunteers are needed at the shop. Interested people can call Hirtle at 597-3398.

Moriah gridder selected for upstate v. downstate all-star game By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — Nick Gilbo made history when he stepped on the field for the Empower Federal Credit Union Upstate vs. Downstate Football Classic June 5. The Moriah Central School senior was the first Section VII athlete to play in the game that pits the best gridders from around New York State. “It’s definitely exciting,” Gilbo said. “I get to play one last high school game. I never thought I’d get this chance.” The game was played at Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome, a place Gilbo has played before. A bruising fullback and linebacker, he led Moriah to two Class D state championship games at the dome. While the experience was fun for Gilbo, his team took its lumps. Downstate won the contest, 41-7. Football season ended last November for New York’s high school athletes, but Gilbo and others had been practicing in Syracuse this spring for the Upstate vs. Downstate Classic. He has spent the week before the game at SU practicing twice a day. “It’s like a training camp,” Gilbo said. “They (game officials) take care of everything — housing, food, practices. It’s really a neat experience.” Gilbo, who was named to the all-state team last fall, was nominated for the all star game by Larry Ewald, Section VII football coordinator. Gilbo then had to send game films to be evaluated before he was selected by coaches to participate. A fullback and linebacker by trade, Gilbo

Photo by Nancy Frasier was moved to tight end for the Upstate vs. Downstate Classic. He is 6-foot-2 and weighs 240 pounds. “It really doesn’t matter where I play,” Gilbo said. “I just love the game. A tight end blocks a lot, just like a fullback, and I’ll get a chance to run with the ball when they

throw it to me.” The game featured several Division I recruits, including eight players headed to Syracuse University this fall. That list includes Upstate QB Ashton Broyld and Downstate QB Terrel Hunt. Hunt was the game’s star. Hunt, out of

Christ the King High School, ran for one touchdown and passed for another. The 6foot-4, 190-pound Hunt completed 4 of 5 passes for 52 yards. He ran for 31 yards on 11 carries, totals that included a 19-yard scramble down to the Upstate 2-yard line and a subsequent 1-yard keeper that blew the game open 20-7 with 4:09 remaining in the third quarter. Gilbo, who plans on playing football at Hudson Valley Community College this fall, hoped to use the game to catch the eye of a Division I program. “There will be a lot of players going to Syracuse University and the University of Buffalo in the game,” Gilbo said. “This is a chance to see how I stack up against them.” Bill Larrow, Moriah Central School superintendent, is pleased Gilbo represented his school at the Upstate vs. Downstate Classic. “This is a great honor for Nick to be selected as only New York’s best football players are picked to attend this contest,” Larrow said. “Nick is a great role model for the youth in our town,” he added. “He is very supportive in all youth activities and values family as a major part in his life. Whether it be PAL football or youth basketball, Nick is always present supporting his family members or helping out as a volunteer. “As a student, Nick has been a pleasure to have as a member of our school community,” Larrow said. “He has always been very polite and respectful toward his teachers and fellow classmates. Nick has also demonstrated positive leadership skills that will help him be successful in what ever he decides to do in the future.”

Roe Pond tourney attracts children to annual Witherbee fishing event WITHERBEE — The 21st Annual Roe Pond Fishing Classic for Kids was held on May 28. “Well over 100 young anglers competed,” said Brian Venne of the Moriah Youth Commission. “Perfect fishing weather. Fishing was intense, so were the black flies. Many fish were caught and lost. Some tear jerking moments were shared. Many fish stories will evolve from this!” All anglers received a packet of lures. Winners received fishing poles and were treated to a lunch of hot dogs provided by the local chapter of Whitetails Unlimited. Winners include: Age 6 and younger — 1, Jason Martinez, 1 pound, 14 ounces; 2, Braton Belden, 1-13. Ages 7-9 — 1, Nicholas Greene, 1-14; 2, Cole Glebus, 1-11; 3, Emma Bogart, 1-10. Ages 10-11 — 1,John Martinez, 1-11; 2, Derek Manfred, 1-9; 3, D. Chamberlain, 1-8.

Ages 12-13 — 1, Chase Dickerson, 1-10; 2, Kyle Wilson, 1-10; 3, Kyle Perry,1-9. Ages 14-15 — 1, Cole Gaddor, 2-2 (lunker of the day); 2, Alex Lashway2-0; 3, Gage Denton, 1-12. Roe Pond is a designated children’s fishing pond. No adult fishing of any kind is allowed. “Let’s teach sportsmanship to our young anglers by obeying the laws and keeping our pond clean and litter free,” Venne said. Venne thanked Steve Lamere and his staff at the Essex County Fish Hatchery along with the Essex County Board of Supervisors and Moriah town board for supporting the tournament and angling the area. “A very special thank you to Jamie Wilson and our dedicated highway crew for the hard work of getting Roe Pond in shape for our tournament,” Venne said. “In light of all the damage of our fine community has expe-

rienced over the past weeks you repaired Roe Pond two times. Your dedication has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. “To Whitetails Unlimited President Bill Carpenter and members of gourmet cooking crew Ron Sr. and Ron Jr. Nesbitt, and Cledas Nephew, your hot dogs were fantastic and your money donation truly proves you are sportsmen,” he added. “Our anglers can never thank you enough. A thank you to Whitetails member and keen photographer Rose French for taking so many fantastic pictures.” Venne also acknowledged Boyea’s Grocery & Deli/Lakeside Dining for its money donation. He also thanked the Town of Moriah Youth Sports Commission and Port Henry Pools for donation towards prizes and the Blue-Hill Club for a donation and continued support. “A special thank you to our driver Gary

Cutting on the day of stocking our lunkers,” Venne said. “A very special thank you to Sheriff Cutting for sending down a patrol for traffic control. A very special thank you to patrolman Arthur Brassard and our Superintendent of Building & Grounds Ed Roberts for traffic control and traffic cones, you go beyond the call of duty. “And to our tournament committee Joseph (Coonrod) Rodriguez, Mike Aitner, Chip Perry Sr., Tom Langey, Mike Vargo and Jason Vargo, it has been an honor to work with you gentlemen over these many many years,” Venne said. “Your dedication, hard work and love of the sport shows in the faces of our young anglers. Thank you for allowing me to share these memories with you.” Photos: The 21st Annual Roe Pond Fishing Classic for Kids was held in Witherbee recently, attracting more than 100 children.

Outdoor • Times of Ti - 27

The season begins on The Big Lake and the LCI is a go


ECO John Blades, looks over a dead moose which was illegally shot in Keene, NY by Burton Smith in October 2008.

The thin, green line, within the Blue Line “Perhaps most of all, the outdoor experience offers us a chance to explore and shape our values, attitudes, and behaviors towards the environment and ourselves. It instills a sense of ownership and personal responsibility.” The above statement, taken from the Seventh Annual Report of the NYS Forest, Fish and Game Commission is as applicable today, as it was when first published in 1906. At that time, New York’s forests and streams were just beginning to recover from an unrelenting onslaught of environmentally damaging practices, which ranged from illegal lumbering to deer poaching to squatters settling on state land. There was even an early environmental advocacy group formed to prevent the pilfering of spruce for ornamental use in camp construction. Appropriately known as the Society for the Preservation of Adirondack Spruce, the group claimed there was, ‘Barely a spruce tree to be found, larger around than the size of a man’s wrist; due to the demand for architectural ornamentation." There were similar efforts underway at the same time, which sought to protect black bears, to restore beavers and to put an end to the commercial harvest of fish and game. In 1880, Governor Alonzo B. Cornell appointed eight Game Protectors in New York state. They were the state’s first environment law enforcement force, dedicated to protecting the state’s woods and waters, and the fish and game. In 1899, Governor Theodore Roosevelt claimed, “I want as Game Protectors men of courage, who can handle the rifle, axe and paddle; who can camp out in the summer or winter; who can go on snowshoes, if necessary; who can go through the woods by day or by night without regard to trails.” In 1964, the NYS Conservation Department renamed the Game Protectors as Conservation Officers, and in 1970 the newly minted NYS Department of Environmental Conservation again updated the title to Environmental Conservation Officers, or ECO’s. In 1971, they were vested with police powers. Although the title's been changed several times, their duties remain essentially the same. The men in green Stetsons are entrusted with the responsibility, “To protect the environment, natural resources and people of the State of New York through law enforcement, education and public outreach.” In 1976, the department created a separate Division of Law Enforcement and in 1982, the Bureau of Environmental Crimes Investigation was formed to provide a special investigative unit within the Department of Law Enforcement. This unit, with 45 staffers statewide remains focused on large scale hazardous waste dumping, endangered species trafficking and undercover operations. Currently, there are over 320 ECO’s on duty, including the Marine Enforcement Unit and a K-9 Unit. They are responsible for everything from checking a fishing license to the transport of protected species, to the illegal dumping of hazardous waste along a quiet, back road. At first glance, being an ECO may seem like an ideal occupation. However, it is also considered

one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Officers often deal with armed suspects, who may be addled by drugs or alcohol, in remote locations where there is illegal activity, and very few witnesses available. In January 1981, Idaho Game Wardens Wilson Elms and William Harlan Pogue were shot and killed while they attempted to arrest a poacher named Claude Dallas. They were ambushed at the poacher’s campsite. In November, 2010, Pennsylvania Wildlife Conservation Officer, David Grove was fatally shot near Gettysburg, after a shootout on a rural road with a deer jacker he was attempting to arrest. The incident in Pennsylvania occurred in the dark of night, as New York ECO’s were involved in Operation Dark Night, an effort to combat deer jacking in 57 of 62 counties. That deer jacking enforcement effort eventually resulted in 137 defendants charged with 274 misdemeanors. Fortunately, there were no injuries. ECO’s are also responsible for enforcing the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, (IWVC), a reciprocal agreement that establishes the revocation of hunting, fishing or trapping privileges for violations in member states. In 2010, DEC added the names of 144 New York residents to the IWVC list of revocations and a dozen additional names for violations that occurred in member states. These criminals were not simply stealing from the forest, field or stream; they were robbing fish and game from all legitimate sportsmen, and women. ECO’s can be reached by contacting the 24 hour dispatch to report poaching or environmental crimes. DEC encourages anyone with information on environmental crimes and violations to call its 24-hour hotline, 1-800-TIPP-DEC or 1-800-847-7332. Callers may request to file complaints anonymously. An online form is also available. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

here’s just something about whizzing by floating logs the size of a Toyota Tacoma at 40 mph that makes you feel alive — which is why I decided to venture out on Lake Champlain last weekend, despite the fact that it remained more than two feet above flood stage with debris bobbing everywhere you looked. Seriously, The Big Pond was littered with more land mines than my backyard dog run after the winter snow melt — the water clarity was about the same color too, making it feel like you were casting into one of those mud pits the Jay Fire Department builds for their summer oozeball tournaments. Funny thing was, the fish didn’t seem to care. Somehow they found our lures through the mucky haze — and we were rewarded with some dandy lakers and salmon. Surface temps ran very close to normal for this time of year — we marked a range of 4852, ideal for running planer boards and fishing shallow with downriggers. We caught fish consistently on both, and definitely ate well all weekend. The issues with launching and all the debris in the water, however, certainly emphasized the rationale behind the Coast Guard’s warning on recreational boating. Which is why the decision to call off the Rotary Fishing Derby for the first time in its 28 year history was understandable. Definitely sad, though — as if the region isn’t suffering enough economically without Mother Nature giving us yet another boot in the derriere. That also made me Above: Ed M ason of Willsboro shows off a dandy lake tr out he question wether the LCI caught on Lake Champlain May 28. Below: Tucker Burr, 15, of Connecticut shows off the landlocked Father ’s Day Derby — salmon and laker he landed the same day.

Photos by John Gereau be forced to reschedule, if not pull the plug altogether (pardon the pun). I spoke to LCI Executive Director James Ehlers about it, though, and he hesitated not at all saying the derby — scheduled for scheduled for June 1820 — is definitely a go. “Fish swim and boats float,” Ehlers said. “Unless they drain the lake there’s going to be a Father ’s Day derby.” Ehlers said there are more access points open than closed and said those who are hesitant to be on the water can still fish from shore. “We don’t require boats,” he said. This year ’s derby features more than $750,000 in cash and prizes, including the $300,000 “Mystery Fish” three Starcraft boats rigged with Yamaha outboards, and $3,000 guaranteed to each of the first-place finishers in the seven species categories. The basic registration fee is $40. This year ’s event kicks off June 18 at midnight and continues through 4 p.m. June 20, with a dozen weigh stations scattered throughout the lake. People can register at outlets around the Champlain basin right up until the start of the derby. Other prizes include GPS units from Lowrance, Gas Grills from Gander Mountain, gift certificates from Traxstech, Able, and Big Jon, as well as over $12,000 worth of lures from makers like Sebile, Eppinger, Challenger, Mooselook, Lhur Jensen and Grizz Baits.

Mary Jane (Mollie) Balmer Rushby June 20, 1915-June 3, 2011 PORT HENRY — Mary Jane (Mollie) Balmer Rushby died peacefully June 3, 2011 in the presence of her family in the home of her daughter at Coyote Ridge in Port Henry. She was 95 years old. Mollie was born June 20, 1915. She was the daughter of the late sea captain John "Jack" Balmer and Daisy Gregory Balmer Burgess. Mollie was predeceased by her husband of 44 years, Walter (Bip) Rushby, in 1981. She was also predeceased by a son, John Rushby, in 2005. She was also predeceased by two grandsons, Doug Osborn and David Rushby, and a niece, Bobbie Dragoon, and her siblings, Marjorie and John Balmer, Mrs.Elizabeth Wait, Mrs.Helen Bell, and Mrs.Ruth Belden. Survivors include the following: two sons and their wives, Walter and Dot Rushby and William and Darlene Rushby; a daughter-in-law, Pat Trow Rushby; two daughters, Ruth Rushby and Judy Mclaughlin and her husband, Dean. She is survived by a nephew, Skip, and his wife, Louise Belden, and two nieces, Kim Belden Titus and Rita Dragoon. She was Grandma to 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Grandma had a hard life at times, but made the best of circumstances. Her father died when she was young, but she had many fond memories of when

her family moved in with her grandmother. She lived through the Depression and married soon afterward. She and Dad were delighted when they were able to purchase their home in 1944 on Spring Street in Port Henry. That’s where they raised their children and gathered their grandchildren for many special occasions. Grandma enjoyed cooking for her family and has left many memories with her squash rolls, date filled cookies, blueberry dumplings, Christmas cookies, penuche fudge, cakes, pies and pickles! She enjoyed working outdoors in her vegetable and flower gardens and maintaining the yard. She enjoyed burning leaves from the many trees in Autumn. One time the fire department came and extinguished one of her leaf piles that was smoking a little too much! To us, the smell of burning leaves brings back many fond memories of Grandma. After Grandpa had two strokes and was bound to a wheelchair, she provided the best of care for him and made our home a loving haven of joy. Her three sons made sure that she and Grandpa were loved and provided for, and included them in their family activities, and made sure that holidays were celebrated together. Later in life, Grandma had her own trailer behind the family home and often had grandchildren in and out throughout the day and even helped with homeschooling. Often the children reminisce about Grandma giving them their spelling tests. She would say the spelling word and they would say “Grandma, how do you spell it?” Being caught off guard, she would spell it for them! A new stage of life when she moved to her daughter’s home on Coyote Ridge. While she spent her last years of life there, she was in the midst of many get-togethers, including skating parties and picnics with the younger generation of friends and family. Grandma enjoyed sitting on the porch, having campfires, and watching the horses from her chair at the window. She also enjoyed clearing the land and having burning piles. Again, the fire department paid her a visit while she was burning brush! As she sat in her folding chair tending a burn pile after dark, we heard one of the firemen call from his ascend up the hill from Rt. 9 (flashlight in hand), “Is that you, Mrs. Rushby?!!!” Sure enough, it was Grandma! She enjoyed shopping and often wore us out! Reading was a great past time for her and she was a wealth of history facts. She enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days and told about the hard times of the Great Depression. She and Grandpa helped care for many in their extended family throughout the years. Going camping and going to Maine were highlights for her most every year. She also enjoyed going to the county fairs. Her favorite passage from the Bible was the Twenty Third Psalm. There was a service for Mom Sunday, June 5, at Coyote Ridge Ranch, north of Port Henry on Coyote Ridge Way. The service was at two o'clock in the afternoon. Everyone was invited, and there was a fun time of volleyball and softball following, along with a picnic. That's how Grandma would have it - a get-together. There will be a burial at the convenience of the family.
