Irene IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME wreaks havoc on area



American, British forces to again face off.

Roads closed, power outages reported


By Fred Herbst

SPORTS PREVIEW TICONDEROGA — By the time Hurricane Ir ene reached the T iconderoga area on Sunday, it had been officially downgraded to a tropic storm. Try telling that to r esidents who dealt with flooding and power outages. “It was literally within 6 inches of my house,” Ti resident Dawn Kelly said of flood waters on the V ineyard. “My daughter (McKenna) walked acr oss the yar d and the water was up to her chest. I couldn’t believe it.” To protect her home Kelly raced to a local stor e to buy sand bags. Finding none, she purchased bags of mulch and used them as a barrier to keep the water a bay. “I thought I would have to leave my house,” Kelly said Sunday evening, “but it’s starting to recede.” The remnants of the hurricane dumped heavy rain and CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Young firefighters learning the ropes Ti FD welcomes teens By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — A gr oup of T iconderoga teens ar e training to become firefighters.

The Ticonderoga Fir e Department has initiated a youth program designed to create interest among 14 and 15 year olds. “They’re our future,” Matt Watts, Ti first assistant chief, said. “Because of their age ther e ar e r estrictions, but they can learn the general operation of the department, the tools, the reasons we do things.As they get older they can become more and more involved.” The local department has had a junior firefighter program since 1984.

American, British to again battle Fort Ti to host events Sept. 10 and 11

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — British and American Armies will

once again fight for control of Fort Ticonderoga during the “Struggle for Liberty.” The re-enactment will take place Satur day and Sunday , Sept. 10 and 11, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the fort. “Experience a court martial proceeding, thrill at cannon demonstrations, and be part of the story as visitors are im-

mersed in a skirmish each day , following the commands of the Continental of ficers leading on horseback,” Beth Hill, Fort T i executive dir ector, said. “Visitors can pur chase wares from period merchants and worship in an 18th-century Divine Service Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m.” The “Str uggle for Liberty”

re-enactment focuses on the fall of 1776 at Fort Ticonderoga. Throughout the weekend, Fort Ticonderoga will have reenactors portraying the Continental Army in 1776 camped in and ar ound the fort walls. Visitors can experience the life of the soldiers and loyalists of the British advanced guard in their camp adjacent to the King’s Garden, the site of Fort Ticonderoga’s 18th-century Garrison Garden. “Visitors will be immersed along side the staff of the Continental Army as they send patrols of men to find the advancing British Army,” Hill said. “Continental of ficers will discuss the American strategy in 1776, as visitors explore the immense ef forts to rebuild the American Army.” The schedule each day includes: troop inspection at 10 a.m., deployment of American and British patrols at 10:30 a.m., an artillery demonstration at 1 1:30 a.m., a British court martial at noon, a skirmish at 1:30 p.m., a Northern Army program at 3 p.m. and a musket demonstration at 3:30

British and American Armies will onc e again fight f or control of F ort Ticonderoga during the “Struggle for Liber ty.” The re-enactment will take place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10 and 11, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the fort. p.m. Saturday’s events will also include a pr esentation by author James Nelson on “W ith Fire & Sword, Bunker Hill and the Beginning of theAmerican Revolution” as well as a pr ogram on sutlers at 4 p.m. Sunday’s events will also include the Divine Service at 9:30 a.m . on the for t p arade ground and a presentation by author, Williard Stearne Randall on “EthanAllen, a Life” at 11:30 a.m. “Fort T iconderoga’s story in 1776 is often overlooked,” Hill said. “While 1775 featured Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold’s captur e of this

fort, and 1777 saw General Burgoyne s eize Ticonderoga once more, 1776 was a major rebuilding year for the Continental Army at Fort T iconderoga. In or der to block the British advance down Lake Champlain towards Albany, the Continental Army posted as many as 15,000 soldiers at Fort Ticonderoga and Fort Independence acr oss the lake. This was the largest American garrison of the fort during the American Revolution.” The “Str uggle for Liberty” event is made possible by funding support fr om Glens Falls National Bank.

Stay out of the High Peaks


ne of the most photographed vistas in the Adirondack Park is the view of the High Peaks from Route 73 near Lake Placid. Please, enjoy the view; it’s the closest you’ll get to these mountains for a while. In the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has wisely closed the eastern section of the High Peaks Wilderness Area, the Giant Mountain Wilderness and the Dix Mountain Wilderness indefinitely. There is untold devastation in the backcountry here, untold because we still don’t know the extent of damage to the woods, waters, trails and infrastructure. Unfortunately, the DEC is faced with a daunting task — keeping people out of these wilderness areas during one of the busiest hiking weekends of the year, Labor Day weekend. Try telling hardcore backpackers, who have been planning their weekend trips for months, to stay out of the woods. It’s nearly impossible. But everyone who reads these words can help. Either postpone your High Peaks hike if you have one, or help suggest alternative hiking/camping destinations for tourists determined to hike the tallest mountain in the state — Mount Marcy — or others nearby. Luckily, most of the major trailheads are unreachable right now. We just hope hikers heed the “Road Closed” and “Trails Closed” signs. The biggest trailhead in the Adirondack Park, and the main access point for the Eastern High Peaks Wilderness, is the Adirondak Loj, operated by the Adirondack Mountain Club. It is currently isolated; the bridge crossing the West Branch of the AuSable River on Adirondack Loj Road is gone. Another popular access point to Mount Marcy and the High Peaks is The Garden trailhead near Keene Valley. It is unreachable. The Johns Brook bridge on the road to The Garden is gone. It’s a 3.5-mile hike to ADK’s Johns Brook Lodge, which is now cut off from the world. While the Upper Works trailhead — the southern terminus of the Eastern High Peaks and a popular way to the Flowed Lands and Indian Pass — near Newcomb is reachable, the DEC has also closed this access point to hikers and backpackers.

“The Flowed Lands is now the Flooded Lands,” said DEC spokesman David Winchell. While reports were still spilling in Tuesday, it appears the backcountry damage could be unprecedented. Foot bridges, trails, railings and dams were either seriously damaged by the flash flood waters or are gone altogether. Blowdown trees litter the forest, making the trails that remain unpassable. •The dam at the Duck Hole is gone, as is the water in the pond. It now appears to be only a few feet deep. •The bridge over Marcy Dam is gone, and the dam is leaking significantly. •The dam at Elk Lake in North Hudson was also partially breached, and the access road across the dam is gone. •There are numerous washouts on the Marcy Dam Truck Trail and Marcy Brook between Marcy Dam and Avalanche Camps jumped its banks, carving a new channel and wiping out much of the trail. •The Van Hoevenberg Trail above Marcy Dam is eroded 1-3 feet deep in many places. The handrails on the suspension bridge on the Calamity Pond trail are gone and the trail is not passable. •The first bridge on the Klondike Trail is also gone, and trails along the shore line at Lake Colden are under water. •And there are many new slides on peaks such as Wright, Colden-north, Trap Dike, Basin, Haystack, Wolfjaws, Dixes and Giant. Cascade Mountain also has a tremendous swath cut down its face. We urge people to stay out of these backcountry areas until the DEC deems them safe. Alternative hikes can be found on the DEC website ( A trip to these backcountry destinations at this time will put lives, and the lives of rescuers, in danger. Emergency personnel are busy enough dealing with public safety along the main roads damaged by Irene; they don’t need to be dragging someone out of the woods when it is completely avoidable and unnecessary.

Letters to the Editor

Learn from Lowe’s To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

What happened to Lowe’s in Ticonderoga is a case study in what not to do if you want to create jobs in the U.S. Instead of being welcomed with open arms and tax exemptions, Lowe’s was involved in years of time consuming and expensive litigations waged by state and federal agencies, private agencies and victims groups. When they finally resolved all the battles and had the go-ahead to open, they were hit with the double whammy of the economy tanking and the shut-down of the bridge connecting New York State to Vermont (due to mismanagement, negligence, and incompetence, on the part of the DOT.) Opening at the worst possible time was the final blow that no new business could possibly recover from. Americans have to make a decision — do we want to welcome businesses that will cr eate tax producing jobs or do we want to hold up businesses with unnecessary r ed tape and frivolous lawsuits and consign prospective employees to the welfare rolls and bread lines? I feel for the former employees of Lowe’s. Not only is Ticonderoga and the state of New York losing taxes from the retailer, but also losing taxes from the employees, both from their salaries and sales tax with the loss of their purchasing power. I sadly suspect that Ticonderoga and surr ounding towns will also loose property taxes from employees who might lose their homes as a result of their termination and lack of salary. My heart goes out to these employees. I’m calling on all our elected of ficials to come up with some novel solutions for job creation in our towns. Instead of punishing new businesses that create jobs, why don’t we r oll out the welcome mat? How about giving new businesses that cr eate jobs a 5 year moratorium on taxes? Why don’t our local leaders band together to petition the federal government to lower the corporate tax rates to make our country more attractive to companies outside the U.S.? The situation in our country is becoming desperate and calls for desperate action that goes way beyond political ideology . If our towns are to survive, if our state is to survive, if our country is to survive, if our people ar e to survive, we have to get beyond class warfar e and business bashing. As Lowe’s has shown, no business is obligated to keep its doors open if it’s not pr ofitable for them to do so. They can shut down, as is the case of Aubuchon in Port Henry , or like Lowe’s, just pick up their chips and leave. Instead of penalizing potential employers why not try to facilitate their success, because in the end, we all win when local businesses succeed. Mandy Fox Crown Point

Small business

Tournament a success

Small business is the engine of the country and represents over 80 percent of the nation’s businesses. They ar e r epeatedly overlooked when it comes to government stimulus plans. Small business has given birth to some of our nations lar gest and most successful companies today. Major firms and large businesses are large enough and sophisticated enough to fend for themselves in the world economy. It’s generally these big businesses that send jobs out of the country and focus on their profit first and foremost. County, community and employment tend to be far down on their priority list. We need to invest government money in small businesses, reaching middle America, providing them a safe harbor to take the risks associated with a small business, weather the economy and pr ovided our str uggling communities with a stable and diverse local economy. It’s estimated that approximately 13.9 million people are unemployed around the country today. There are over 6 million small businesses with more than one employee. If each small business was given a 150 per cent tax credit for the entire amount of the wages paid for hiring an unemployed person we could put a serious dent in reducing the unemployment rate while greatly stimulating our local economies. Any person launching a new small busi-

I would like to thank everyone who golfed, donated baskets and/or gift certificates, made monetary donations, attended the dinner and helped in any way for the “Friends Helping Friends” Golf Tournament on Friday, Aug. 19. It is because of the kind support of all of you and the members of our community that the fundraiser was a gr eat success. We are keeping our friend in our thoughts and prayers and want her to know that “Every day may not be good….but….there is something good in every day.” Wendy Shaw Ticonderoga

Thanks for support To the Times of Ti: On Sunday, Aug. 21, Ted Zoli, designer of the new Cr own Point Bridge, spoke at a fundraising event for Literacy V olunteers. His presentation, along with his sense of humor and ability to articulate how he developed and designed the new bridge blew the audience away! W e were very fortunate to have him speak on this vital link; especially during this historical moment and on a topic that personally aff ects so many of us in the North Country. We would like to thank Mr. Zoli for sharing his expertise and experience with us. Literacy V olunteers would like to acknowledge Camp Dudley for their continued support and allowing us to use Witherbee Auditorium. Special thanks to Matt Storey and Kathy Sequin for their help and support in addition to David Nelson for controlling the lights and tech-support. This event would not have been successful without the following volunteers who helped cr eate, or ganize and pr omote this event: Jim Bullar d, Jim Davis, Chuck Gibson, Sam Huntington, Chris Lawrence, Carl & Shirley Resek, Chet & Sandy W oods and all who made delicious desserts and er freshments!

When you consider we spend nearly $5 billion every week on unemployment benefits with nothing in return, this plans attempt to use those funds to cr eate self sustaining employment. Obviously an employment base line and r ules would need to be established for such a tax credits to control any abuses but such a stimulus would inject a new found confidence in Main Str eet and raise the importance of American entr epreneurship, while not seeing any of the funds leave our shores or be gobbled up by excessive compensation bonus plans, as was the case with the Wall Street Bailout Plan. A r enewed inter est in Faith, Family and Small Business will impact every sector of our society. Much like Roosevelt opened the eyes of the country after the gr eat depression to the New Deal, this plan will putAmerica back on the path to common sense and work ethics rooted in family and faith values. But I wouldn’t hold out much hope that any version of it could be considered anytime soon. Main stream politics isn’t prepared to deal with any of these issues any time soon, but I thought drafting it was more productive than complaining about W ashington’s inactivity and who knows we use to joke about samesex marriage and look at what continued persistence on their part has accomplished. Who knows? There may be hope for my plan some day. Dan Alexander is publisher and owner of Denton Publications. He may be reached at

Readers should listen to local musician


eaders should check out these five songs by Lizzy Grant, a Lake Placid-raised musician who performs under the stage name Lana Del Rey. This reporter is slightly biased in his recommendation, having known Grant’s sister growing up. But the truth is, it just would be great to see a local person make it big, if only for indie standards. And Grant is genuinely talented. For years she’s seemed poised on the brink of success, boasting sometimes husky vocals and retro sound that will appeal to fans of Cat Power and the late Amy Winehouse. Jon Hochschartner A song of Grant’s was recently featured in the “Best New Staff Writer Tracks” section of Pitchfork Media, an influential music website, making one wonder whether she will soon have enough momentum to push herself over the edge, into wider acclaim. So in the hopes of introducing readers to a promising, up-and-coming artist, here are five of Grant’s most interesting tracks. One can find them all on “Kill Kill” — We listen to an internal monologue here, as Grant prepares to leave an intimate, having realized she can’t fix his problems. She sings, “I’m in love with a dying man. I’ve done everything I can.” “Kinda Outta Luck” — This is one of Grant’s livelier tracks, as she slips into the role of femme fatale, backed by a riff that vaguely recalls the soundtrack of Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction.” “Video Games” — This sounds like nostalgic recollections from a souring romance. The singer seems to realize the relationship won’t work, but needs to see it to the end. We hear the initial attraction, followed by the fleeting good times, but we sense the pending split in Grant’s bittersweet tone. “Yayo” — The song begins as a plea for rescue from dead-end existence, with Grant singing, “You have to take me right now from this dark trailer park life.” But perhaps not evoking the wanted assistance, the singer resorts to desperate seduction, offering, “Let me put on a show for you, Daddy.” “Diet Mtn Dew” — In this track, we overhear a woman entangled in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship. Grant sings, “Hit me my darling tonight. I don't know why but I like it.” Making it all the more heartrending, she repeatedly asks, with all sincerity, “Do you think we’ll be in love forever?” Jon Hochschartner is a reporter with Denton Publications.

By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava strongly supports the new 2 percent cap on local property taxes, but... “The cumulative impact of all taxes has gotten to the point taxpayers can’t af ford it anymore,” he said. “At the same time, constituents have to r ealize that along with a (tax) cap will be a re duction or complete loss of services. You can’t have it both ways.” Moriah currently has a $2.6 million budget with $1.57 million raised thr ough local raises. That means Moriah can only increase taxes by $31,400 next year to stay within the 2 percent tax cap. That’s a tough limit for Moriah of ficials, who note the town faces about $200,000 in flood damage from this past spring. “We h ope to g et t hat m oney b ack f rom FEMA (federal Emer gency Management Agency). but you can’t put that into the budget hoping it’ll come,” Scozzafava said. The supervisor also noted the town will face r educed r evenue fr om the Bulwagga Bay campsite, which was hit har d by flooding. The town will also face incr eased energy costs, higher employee salaries, increased health i nsurance pr emiums and a host of other price hikes. Those incr eases will certainly top the $31,400 limit. That means Moriah will have to make cuts in other areas. “To provide relief to the property tax some of the services that ar e nice will have to go away,” Scozzafava said. “We will encourage public participation in the budget pr ocess.

We need to hear from people what they value and what they don’t.” Moriah spends $30,000 a year to operate the health center in Mi neville, Scozzafava noted. Should the health center be closed, he wondered, or do people want cuts elsewhere. The town could eliminate it’s two-man police for ce, turn of f str eet lights, cut youth programs and slash senior citizen services, Scozzafava said. “What should be cut?” the supervisor asked. “And what about our highway department,” he said. “W e have 50 miles of r ural highways, some dirt with significant hills. The weather is unpr edictable. How do we budget for highway? Already we don’t take care of the roads the way we should.” The new state tax cap law allows a municipality to exceed the 2 per cent incr ease if four of five town boar d members appr ove. Scozzafava plans on preparing two budgets for 2012 — one with a 2 per cent or less tax increase and one exceeding the cap. He’ll then leave it up to the town boar d to pass one of the budget versions. “This will be my 23rd budget and will by far be my most difficult,” he said. While the job is dif ficult, Scozzafava stresses he supports ef forts to r educe taxes and balance budgets. He cr edits Gov. Andrew Cuomo with pushing the tax cap law through the state legislature. “The governor is doing a gr eat job,” the Republican Scozzafava said of Democrat Cuomo. “He’s trying to dig us out of a hole that took us 30 years to get into.”

The arch of the Lake Champlain Bridge was readied to be lifted into place Aug. 26. Crews worked into the evening hours to lift the arch into place. Flatiron Construction of Colorado is building the $69.6 million bridge. The original opening date of Oct. 9 has been delayed; spring flooding put the pro ject behind. Therefore, the bridge celebration originally slated for Oct. 15-16 has been postponed until May 19-20, 2012. The state has granted Flatiron a 65-day extension, giving the company until Dec. 13 to

finish the bridge. Incentives ar e in place for an early finish date, accor ding NYSDOT Executive Deputy Commissioner Stanley Gee, who gave an impromptu press conference Aug. 26 at the Cro wn Point State Historic Site. Flatiron will earn $30,000 for each day it completes the bridge before Dec. 13. Likewise, it will cost the company $30,000 for each day past Dec. 13, Gee said. The DOT will not give an opening date for the bridge, but Gee said the DOT hopes it will happen before 2012.

Lady Panthers seek to improve Crown Point girls learning to win By Fred Herbst

Hailey White, Crown Point’s most valuable pla yer the past t wo seasons, returns to the Panther line-up this fall.

CROWN POINT — The Crown Point girls soccer team is improving. Despite going winless in 2010, the Panthers proved to be competitive. “We had a couple of games go into overtime,” Coach Jayna Andersen said. “We lost a couple of more 32, 2-1. We were competitive. We just didn’t know how to win. That’s changing.” Learning to win is the emphasis this season for Cro wn Point. The Panthers have a veteran team, including a pair of Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference all stars from 2010 — forward Marissa Titus and midfielder Hailey White. Titus led the team in scoring, while White has been the team MVP the past two years. They’re joined by fullback Julianne Glebus, who anchors the defense.

Panthers set lofty goal Veteran squad eyes title

By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — Crown Point’s boys soccer team has a simple goal. “This year our goal is to win the Division III title,” Coach Don Bishop said. The Panthers just might do it. They eturn r 13 players, including nine starters. “We r eturn nine of 1 1 starters fr om last year’s team,” Bishop observed. “Our biggest hurdle is r eplacing our goalie, Max Mesones, who graduated. He had been our starter the past 2 1/2 years.” Jon Spaulding has the task of filling the nets. “Our new goal keeper will be key to anchoring our defense,” Bishop said. Tanner Macey , Mike Gould and Mike DuShane all return to play defense in fr ont of Spaulding. They’re joined by rookie Jaice Spring. Spring will step in for Caelin Titus, the other starter the Panthers have lost from 2010. Crown Point’s midfield will feature veterans Nathan Tabor, Caleb McGuinness, Gabe Macey, Duke Mildon, Jef f Clarke and Kyle Hunsdon. They’re joined by newcomers Nick Vezzi, Calvin Arno and Cole Brooks. Tabor was the team’s leading scorer last season with seven goals and four assists. Macey was the team’s second-leading scorer. “Our midfield should be str ong with our two leading scor ers, Nathan T abor and Gabe Macey, along with senior Caleb McGuinness and Duke Mildon,” Bishop said. Dan Groshans, Mike Enman and Bret Guidkunst r eturn at forwar d. Joe Foote, a r ookie,

joins them. Crown Point posted a 2-8 r ecord in the Mountain and V alley Athletic Confer ence a year ago, but this season moves to the new Section VII Conference. The Panthers will play in Division III with Indian Lake/Long Lake, Johnsburg, Keene, Minerva/Newcomb, Schroon Lake and Wells. “We have been very competitive with most of the Division III teams in the past and hope to be again this year,” Bishop said. “Last year we had a very young team and suf fered a number of key injuries. This year out goal is to win the Division III title.” Assisting Bishop on the sidelines this fall rae Dave Groshans and Brad Peters.

Sentinels hope for momentum Ticonderoga coach excited entering season By Fred Herbst T I C O N D E R O G A — T h e T i c o n d e ro g a High School football teams started last season in rather unimpr essive fashion. Struggling with injuries at quarterback, the Sentinels got off to a terrible start. That all changed, though, with the emergence of Miles Austin as the signal caller. When the sophomore came up from the junior varsity , he pr ovided a needed spark that pr opelled T i to a 6-4 season. The Sentinels r eached the Section VII Class D championship game before losing a hard-fought battle with archrival Moriah. The Sentinels hope to build on that momentum this fall. “We’re excited about a strong nucleus of returning players and are very excited about some of our rising juniors,” Coach Bob Sutphen said. “W e’re a bit worried about our size and hope some of our experience can even that deficit out.” Austin and Nate Lenhart r eturn at quarterback for T i. They’ll be joined in the backfield by R yan Bor ho, Anthony Costello, Jay Hebert, EJ Kearns and Tanner Wright. B o rh o b r i n g s e x p e r i e n c e t o t h e b a c k field and Hebert potential. Hebert, a ro o k i e o n t h e s q u a d , i s t h e S e c t i o n V I I 110-meter hur dle champion in track. He will be one of the fastest players in the

Northern Football Conference. The r eceivers include Joe Gonyeau, K a r s e n G r a n g e r, Tro y H o l m b e rg , Wi l l Lawrie, Sean Smith and Doug Wilson. The of fensive line will be under -sized, but is a veteran crew. The “big uglies” include Hayden Bazan, Steve Bussey, Jacob C ro w e , J a c o b D e m a r a i s , A d a m G e i s e r , Cody Henthorn, Cory King, Troy LaBounty, Daryl McKeown, Josh Ross and Dennis Towne. Ticonderoga has a tradition of playing rugged defense, particularly against the run. This season should be no different. The defensive front will line up Bazan, B u s s e y, D e M a r a i s , G e i s e r , H e n t h o r n , King, LaBounty, McKeown, Ross and Wilson. The linebacking corps consists of Borho, Costello, Cr owe, Hebert, Kearns, Towne and Wright. Manning the secondary will be Austin, Gonyeau, Granger , Holmber g, Lawrie, Lenhart and Smith. Assisting Sutphen on the sidelines will be coaches Scott Nephew, Jim Decker, Bill Barnhart, Todd Mitchell and Kyle Lang. Ticonderoga opens the season Sept. 2 with a home game against Saranac. It means archrival Moriah Sept. 9 at Linney Field in Mineville.

Long-time coach stepping down Brian Kiely to retire By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — The most senior cr oss country coach in the ar ea will end his car eer with one of his youngest teams ever. Ti c o n d e ro g a H i g h School Coach Brian Kiely is calling its quits. This, his 31st season, will be his last. And to make it interesting, the Sentinels r eturn just one senior to the roster. “My plan is to r e t i re from active coaching after the 201 1 season,” Kiely said. “This will be my 31st season with cr oss country and my 36th year of coaching school sports since 1976. I have gr eatly enjoyed it, but it’s time to let

the younger folks who have an inter est in coaching have their shot at it. I do anticipate staying on as Section 7 boys cr oss country coordinator for several more years.” The Sentinels wer e 1 1-7 in the Champlain V alley Athletic Confer ence last season, giving Kiely 368 career wins as coach.

Shawn Silliman and Milo Thurbon. “ We h a v e s t r e n g t h i n numbers this year ,” Kiely said. “W e have a number of former successful modified r unners moving up and a key component of our success will be how they adjust to racing at the longer varsity distance. We also have a number of talented r eturnees which should keep us competitive with most of the other CVAC teams. “ We l i k e wh a t we h a v e seen so far in our practices,” he added. “We hope to be competitive with most of the CV AC teams. Saranac should have a very g ood b oys t eam a nd Peru, Plattsburgh, and Seton should also be fairly s t ro n g . O u r o v e r a l l s u c cess will depend on some of our younger runners developing to give help to our mor e experienced ones.” Wi t h K i e l y a n n o u n c i n g his retirement, this will be a transition year for Ticonderoga cr oss country.

Depth will be key for Lady Sentinel harriers with just six returning in 2011 Ti lacks numbers By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga High School g irls c ross c ountry r eturns t hree s tate qualifiers this fall, but depth will be a problem for the Sentinels. Ti has just six girls on the roster. “We have a good cor e of r eturning r unners from last season,” Coach Brian Kiely said. “However, we will have to ermain healthy in order to impr ove on last year ’s r ecord. Our biggest concern is lack of numbers. W e are hoping to pick up some mor e girls as the season pr ogresses.” Ti posted a 5-12 mark in Champlain V alley Athletic Conference action in 2010. Returning to the Sentinel club are Becky Barber, Alaina Bevilacqua, Hannah Herbst, Tabitha Taylor and Markie teRiele. New to the team is Emilee Namer. Barber, Bevilacqua and Herbst all er ached the state championship race last fall. Taylor would have, but was felled by illness the night befor e the section qualifying race. “We have been pleased with the ef fort in practice so far ,” Kiely said. “In or der for our girls to be a factor in the CVAC we will have to run consistently and stay healthy . Ther e are a number of girls teams that should be str ong in

the conference.” This is a season of change for the Ticonderoga cross country program. Kiely has announced he will retire at the end of the season. Jay Wells, who has coaches the T i girls team the past several seasons, will coach the boys modified this fall in preparation for taking over the boys program in 2012. Brittany McCarthy is serving as an intern coach with the girls team this season with the aim of taking over the girls program in 2012.

Vikings eye continued success Moriah returns 16 players in attempt to win fourth Class D title By Fred Herbst P O RT H E N RY — M o r i a h h a s e s t a b lished itself as a state football powerhouse. The V ikings r eached the state Class D championship game in 2008 and 2009 before losing to the eventual champ in the state semifinals last season. There’s no r eason to expect things to change in 2011. Moriah returns 16 players from last season’s 10-2 squad. “We expect to be competitive and play for the Section VII Class D title with hopes of moving on to the state playof fs,” Coach Don T esar said. “It’ll be a tough challenge, but the talent is there.” As usual, the V ikings will be led by a stout offensive line that will pave the way for a strong running game. Ti m B r e e y e a r, R o n P e r r y , C o n n e r R o driguez, Justin Cutting, Craig MacDougal, Trevor Cheney, Carlo Calabrese, Jake Stevenson and Ethan Roberts all have experience on the offensive line. New to the pits are Cory Daly, Derek Brassard, Ben S c h a e f e r, D a k o t a h M a r c o t t e a n d J a r e d Feith. “Filling the O-line is a concern with only thr ee players seeing a considerable amount of action last season,” Tesar said. “But we have 14 linemen, nine returning, so we have plenty of depth.” Landon Cr oss r eturns at quarterback. He’s joined by rookie Cole Gaddor. Moriah is blessed with a deep and talented stable of running backs. Tom Ida, Jim Curran, Tom Slattery, Jeff Greenough and Dave Quinn return. New to the backfield ar e Skyler Graham, T aylor Whalen, Zack Beeman, Richie Stockwell, Jessup Calkins, Mike Mero and John Wallace. The wide receivers include Travis Newphew, Ian W illiams, Gr eenough, Calkins

and Mero. Mike Badger and Cheney r eturn as tight ends. They’re joined by Ryan Shpur, Jesse Lee, Dillon Adkins and T aylor Whalen. “There are 20 players competing for offensive back and ends spots,” T esar noted. “Only two of those players saw a lot of action last season.” M o r i a h i s k n o w n t h ro u g h o u t t h e Northern Football Confer ence for its bruising defense. The Vikings are annually among the league’s top teams at stopping the run. The defensive line this fall will feature P e r r y, R o b e r t s , S t e v e n s o n , M a c D o u g a l , B r a s s a rd , S c h a e f e r , M a r c o t t e , F e i t h , Breeyear, Badger, Shpur, Lee and Curran. The linebackers will be Rodriguez, Cala b re s e , C u t t i n g C h e n e y , Stockwell, Whalen, Beeman, Graham, Br eeyear and Ida. I n the s e co n d a ry M o ri a h wi l l f e a t u r e C ro s s , G r e e n o u g h , S l a t t e r y , S t o c k w e l l , Calkins, Quinn, Mer o, W allace, Nephew and Williams. “Size could be a problem, but hopefully we can make up for that with team quickness,” Tesar said. “W e expect to be competitive with teams in the league.” Moriah posted a 7-1 NFC mark in 2010. A key to success in 2011 will be finding someone to fill the shoes of Nick Gilbo, an all-state fullback and linebacker. Gilbo led the V ikings in r ushing, scoring and tackles the last two years. Assisting Tesar on the sideline will be To m A n d e r s o n , C h r i s L o b d e l l , C a s e y N e p h e w, P e t e G i l b o , J i m L a n g e y a n d Aaron Brassard.

September 3, 2011 Marie L. Snyder

April 28, 1922-Aug. 11, 2011 SCHROON LAKE — Marie L. Snyder 89, passed away Thursday , Aug.11, 2011, in Schroon Lake. Marie was born April 28, 1922, in Glens Falls, the daughter of the late Walter and Lucy Ide Lafayette. It is impossible to say anything about Marie Snyder that does not begin with “Bob and Marie…” They were a remarkable couple who chose to live acr oss a log bridge over a sparkling br ook, up a r ocky path, beside a still pond, in a house they build on a secluded plot of land off an unpaved r oad in Paradox. Though the outside world changed in dramatic ways, Bob and Marie stayed true to their vision, living peacefully amidst the beauty of nature for over fifty years. They published the “Backwoods Journal” filled with Bob’s stories, poems and drawings, inspired by their life in the woods. Bob and Marie were fondly referred to (and described themselves ) as “hermits,” yet they graciously welcomed visitors. They called the second house they built (while in their 60s — without power tools) “rustic,” but it was an artistic and engineering marvel. Marie was the mor e social of the two, looking after her neighbors, offering help to one and all. She loved nothing mor e than to be outside working — nothing except Bob. When he passed away on Nov . 29, 2000, she was bereft. She finished her days in Schroon Lake, helping out with lunches at the Senior Center. Marie leaves behind four of her seven siblings: Bill Lafayette, Ruth and Bob Keddell, Erma and Dean Nor dquist, Betty Avery and many nieces and nephews. Marie will also be remembered by a community of friends who loved and cherished her for the unique, intr epid soul she was. There will be a memorial service Sept. 10 at 11 a.m. in Paradox.

Florence Catherine Glebus

April 3, 1921-Aug. 25, 2011 WITHERBEE — Flor ence Catherine Glebus, 90, of Silver Hill Road in W itherbee joined her beloved husband Anthony on Aug. 25, 2011. She was born in Ticonderoga, daughter of Ella (Cr ossman) and Geor ge T rudeau on April 3, 1921. She was employed by the Ticonderoga International Paper Mill for over 25 years. In her younger days she enjoyed fishing and small game hunting with her husband and sons. She was a longtime member of St. Michael’s Church in Witherbee and the Catholic Daughters. She was also an active participant of women’s bowling teams in both Mineville and Vero Beach, Fla. She enjoyed painting water colors and crocheted many beautiful afghans and doilies throughout the years. She loved traveling to Florida with her husband, T ony, every winter upon her retirement. An avid baseball fan she rar ely missed a Dodgers or Mets televised game and she and T ony attended the Dodgers spring practice daily becoming well acquainted with many of the players during their stay in eVro Beach, Fla. Her gre atest pride were her grandsons and great grandchildren. Florence i s p redeceased b y h er h usband, Anthony a nd e ight s iblings, Minnie, Mabel, Dorothy, Beatrice, Georgia, Edward, James and Howard Trudeau. She is survived by two sons, Anthony and (late Patricia) Glebus of Lewis and Gary and Shelly Glebus of Schroon Lake, three grandsons and five great-grandchildren, Tim and Mary (Fountain) Glebus of Morrisonville, NY, Scott and Stephanie Glebus of Jacksonville, Fla., and their 2 sons Jake and Bro ck, Dr. Geoffrey and Rachel Glebus of SanAn-

Barbara A. Olcott

May 10, 1937-Aug. 26, 2011 TICONDEROGA — Barbara A. Olcott, 74, of Outlet Drive, T iconderoga, passed away peacefully on Friday, Aug. 26, 2011, at St. Peter's Hospital inAlbany, following a short illness. She was born in T upper Lake May 10, 1937, the daughter of Raymond and Dora (Oshier) LaBounty. While a young girl, the family moved to Ticonderoga, where she attended Ticonderoga Central School. Of Fr ench Canadian descent, Barbara would always tell it like it was. Her uncle affectionately nicknamed her “Barbed Wire” because of her grit. Over the years, she enjoyed a variety of pastimes. Many area people have either an afghan or sweater that she knitted or cr ocheted. Puzzles, games, cards and bowling kept her busy, but dancing was her passion. To see her and a partner do a jitterbug was like watching poetry in motion. On many occasions, she cleared the dance floor. In 1986, she suffered a stroke which was to be life altering. With great determination, she worked to overcome her disabilities to be selfsufficient and live alone. On any given day, she could be seen riding around town on her canopied scooter , stopping to visit people along her way. There ar e many facets to one’s personality and some ar e never shared. Quietly saying her rosary every night and donating personal possessions to the Mission in Rutland, Vt. These items are sold and money is used to feed and shelter the homeless and aid veterans. Her latest concern was for Calico, a twice abandoned cat that lives in the brush on nearby property. Each day she would set out on her scooter to put food out for the cat. Her family around and hours left to live, with great difficulty, she asked, “Are you feeding Calico for me?” She was pr e-deceased by her par ents and her br other, Thomas LaBounty. Barbara is survived by her four children, Donald J. Olcott of Ticonderoga, Gary L. Olcott and his wife Lori of T iconderoga, Debi Clegg and her husband Gary of Knoxville, Tenn., and Diane Devens of Putnam Valley; her sister , Betty Whitfor d of W estport and her br other,

Irene did not spare the backcountry

Duck Hole, Marcy dam gone; Adirondack Loj inaccessible


omewhat lost in the news of Tropical Storm Irene’s impact on manmade objects like buildings and roads throughout New York is the devastation the storm caused to the mountains and backcountry here. While reports are still spilling in, it appears the backcountry damage could be unprecedented. Foot bridges, trails, railings and dams were either seriously damaged by the flash flood waters or are gone altogether. Blowdown trees litter the forest, making the trails that remain unpassable. With one of the most popular hiking weekends looming, the DEC has officially closed all trails in the eastern section of the High Peaks Wilderness Area, Giant Mountain Wilderness and Dix Mountain Wilderness. Trails will remain closed through Labor Day weekend, according to DEC spokesman Dave Winchell, and hikers are urged to stay out of these areas.

Other damage Perhaps the most devastating news for ardent brook trout fisherman is that the dam at the Duck Hole is gone, as is the water in the pond. It now appears to be only a few feet deep. The bridge crossing the West Branch of the AuSable River on Adirondack Loj Road (the only access to the Adirondack Mountain Club’s Adirondak Loj) is also gone, as is the Johns Brook bridge on the road to The Garden trailhead in Keene Valley, the main access point for ADK’s Johns Brook Lodge (a 3.5-

mile hike in the wilderness). DEC Forester Kris Alberga flew over the High Peaks region Monday afternoon and reported that the bridge over Marcy Dam is gone, and the dam is leaking significantly. The dam at Elk Lake in North Hudson was also partially breached, and the access road across the dam is gone. Alberga also noted numerous washouts on the Marcy Dam Truck Trail and said Marcy Brook between Marcy Dam and Avalanche Camps jumped its banks, carving a new channel and wiping out much of the trail. Alberga said the Van Hoevenberg Trail above Marcy Dam is eroded 1-3 feet deep in many places. The handrails on the suspension bridge on the Calamity Pond trail are gone and the trail is not passable. The first bridge on the Klondike Trail is also gone, and trails along the shore line at Lake Colden are under water. At the same time, Alberga said he saw so many new slides carved into the sides of mountains that he “lost track after awhile.” He noted new slides at Wright, Colden-north, Trap Dike, Basin, Haystack, Wolfjaws, Dixes and Giant. Cascade Mountain also has a tremendous swath cut down its face.

State Campgrounds A number of campgrounds are also currently closed due to damage to roads, lack of electricity and numerous trees down. While DEC is working diligently to have these sites open for Labor Day weekend, the damage to some will undoubtedly keep them shuttered for one of the most popular camping weekends of the year. According to Winchell, as of Tuesday, Aug. 30, only 19 of 45 campgrounds in the Adirondacks remained open. The following were closed with repairs and cleanup under way: Ausable Point Campground, Buck Pond Campground, Eagle Point Campground, Hearthstone Point Campground, Lake Durant Campground, Lake George Battlefield Park, Lake George Battleground Campground, Lake George Beach, Lake George Islands Campground, Little Sand Point Campground, Luzerne Campground, Meacham Lake Campground, Moffit Beach Campground, Northampton Beach Campground, Paradox Lake Campground, Point Comfort Campground, Poplar Point Campground, Putnam Pond Campground, Rogers Rock Campground, Scaroon Manor Campground, Sharp Bridge Campground. Winchell said it is also suggested that campers phone either the campground or regional office to confirm that the facility is open. A list of phone numbers for all campgrounds and their associated regional offices can be found at: John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsmen.

Bad weather, good people A

few weeks back, I had the good fortune of joining a group of young men for a hike up Hurricane Mountain, near Elizabethtown. I’m almost ashamed to admit it, but my return to the local peak was long overdue. Although I had climbed it often, while working for a DEC Trail Crew in the 1970’s; it had been nearly thirty years since I feasted on the view from the summit. Hurricane, which is located miles to the east of the High Peaks, and miles to the west of Lake Champlain, offers one of the finest summit vistas available in the park. Enjoying a lunch on the summit, in the shadow of the remaining firetower, was like dining in the home of an old friend. It was a beautiful summer day, and the fluffy clouds and a brilliant sun masked any potential danger of foul weather. Despite the required preparations, and the leisure of our journey; nothing had prepared us for the short, silent, yet sharp weather that soon battered us that afternoon. In the distance, it appeared at first to be just a low, dark cloud, which was shadowed by the slight shimmer of a summer rain. However, as it blew over the summit, the cold driving rain was aided in it’s fury by pelting hail, and a cold hard wind. In an instant, our shorts and t-shirts were soaked, and the visibility was gone. We were being battered by the elements in a dark, cold cloud, under a previously sunny sky. The foul weather passed, as quickly as it had arrived. The sun returned, and with it, the vast view. The heat of the day quickly seared away the chill, but a lesson had been learned. There is no denying it, the Adirondacks are a land of extremes. Although the park encompasses rare natural beauty, rugged topography, unrivaled waters and a variety of unique natural, and manmade communities; it also features incredible extremes of weather, extremes of economy and extremes of patience. Fortunately, the region also happens to be inhabited by some extremely tough and hardy folks, whose character has been shaped by the lands that surround them. It is the environment that builds this character, and creates these unique characters. In this land of extremes, snow comes earlier, and remains far longer than in any other region of the state. Ice can be found hidden in caves, all year round, and some streams never warm up enough to beckon swimmers. It is a rough place, that breeds tough souls. It is a vast land, filled with soaring peaks, massive forests and impossible swamps. It is a place where a person can become undeniably lost, and yet they can discover an unrealized, inner strength in the process. Fortunately, it remains largely a kind and friendly place, where neighbors still know one another. And yet they also keep an eye out for strangers, especially in difficult times. Foul weather events always prove this, and the worst of weather will often bring out the best of people. It is during such events, that we have learned to trust in our communities. When the weather brings deep snow or bone chilling cold, slick ice or torrential rains, local communities and their citizens are always up to the task. Last weekend’s events proved this point, time and again! Whether it’s a bridge that has washed out, a road that hasn’t been plowed or a fallen tree that blocks the way, help is usually near at hand. It may arrive via four-wheel drive, toting a tow strap or a chain saw, or it may come floating down the stream, in a V-Bottom boat. Despite the method of delivery, when you’re in trouble ‘Up North,’ help is usually on the way. Help may arrive with something as simple as a set of jumper cables, or a bottle of dry gas; rather than via an awe inspiring rescue. However, come hell, high water or the worst that weather can bring, it is comforting to know, that help is most assuredly on the way. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Alumni Association has rescheduled its 1 1th annual golf tournament for Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Ticonderoga Country Club.

deroga Alumni Scholarship Fund.” The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The registration fee of $100 includes the gr eens fees for 18 holes of golf at the Ticonderoga Country Club course, cart and dinner. “This tournament is one of the most popular tournaments held at the club and will include special prizes and surprises,” Cooper said. “Golfers can win prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, best-dr essed team, and last year ’s fan favorite: deal or no deal.” For more tournament information and reservations, call Cooper at5852640 or George Mackey at the Ticonderoga Country Club 585-2801.
