There will never be a perfect roll, but that’s what we try for.” Laurie Harvey doesn’t believe it. “I won’t comment on the assessors as individuals, but their assessing is not fair,” said Harvey of the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point. “I don’t know how they arrive at their assessments, but it doesn’t appear to me that things are equitable.” The Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point, a recently

Times of Ti Editorial

The answer is not foreign workers


ews last week that Vermont has long had a standing policy of “looking the other way” when it comes to migrant workers residing in this country illegally has disturbed many around the region. The announcement was made Sept. 15 by Gov. Peter Shumlin after two Mexican laborers were pulled over by Vermont state troopers, detained and later turned over to U.S. Border Patrol Agents. The troopers were following the law, but Shumlin made it clear that he wants his state to be able to interpret the law as it sees fit — meaning not turn over undocumented workers to the federal government for deportation. “We have always had a policy in Vermont where we kind of look the other way as much as we can,” the governor told reporters. “I just want to make sure that’s what we’re doing.” “We know the federal government wants to send them home. And we don’t,” he said. Comments from readers have ranged from those sympathetic to the workers and the farmers who often have difficulty filling badly needed minimum wage positions, to utter outrage against a governor who would support jobs for illegals over jobs for his own state’s unemployed. There is certainly merit in both arguments, but from our perspective it appears Shumlin was simply being honest. Right or wrong, the fact is migrant workers do make up a significant number of employees in places where American citizens just don’t want to work for the paycheck offered — like dairy farms. Like meat processing plants. And, politicians have been turning their backs to it for decades. Shumlin was just manning up and telling it like it is: It’s going on all over the country. While Shumlin’s honesty is refreshing, however, his methodology is anything but. First, he is advocating for breaking the law, not changing it. Regardless of his personal beliefs, Shumlin can’t take an oath to uphold the laws of his state in one breath and then tell state troopers to look the other way in another. At the same time, workers in this country who are not citizens — who do no possess a valid social security card and identification — bring their own host of problems with them. From crushing impacts on our health care

system to the inability to hold them accountable for taxes to skewing our census, the fact is problems arise when we factor migrant workers into the population. That cannot be denied, wether you believe they belong here or not. Therefore, Shumlin should be working to change the system, not figuring out ways to circumvent it. Finally, there is the argument that migrant workers take jobs away from citizens of this country. If that is truly not the case, then we have a much deeper problem. With nearly one in 10 Americans without a job and workers needed in jobs being taken by those who do not reside here legally, than we have both a welfare system and work ethic that need changing. This country was built on hard work by the unentitled; it is time we go back to that way of thinking. There is something very wrong with a society that pays its people not to work. A solution to both our unemployment problem and our illegal immigrant problem would be to put our unemployed U.S. citizens in the jobs held by, as Shumlin put it, “guest workers” from outside the country. Make it a condition of collecting an unemployment check each week that a citizen spend a certain number of hours working at a farm or other industry in need. Potential employers could be added to a list which could be distributed to those collecting unemployment. Workers could then prove they’ve put their time in before the next check would be handed over. The system would save places like dairy farms in overhead — putting people to work that the government is already paying to be unemployed — while teaching life skills to those who would otherwise be sitting home collecting from the government. At last count, nearly 40,000 people in Vermont and 1.3 million in New York were out of work. If Gov. Shumlin’s solution to the unemployment problem is to give the jobs we do have to those illegally in our country, then his plan is seriously flawed.

Letters to the Editor

Fort changes are necessary To the Times of Ti: In response to your recent article “Re-enactors upset with Fort Ti” (a letter from Jeanette Siatkowski in the Times of Ti, Sept. 17) I would like to offer my perspective on the current direction of Fort Ticonderoga. The fort is nicknamed “America’s Fort.” I believe this is an appropriate branding given the rich heritage and importance of the Site over its military lifespan. Likewise I believe current operations require reaching-out to all stakeholders in this “America’s Fort,” including those from far away states. I happen to be one of those visitors and re-enactors from a far away state — Virginia. This weekend past during the “Struggle for Liberty” event I visited two restaurants with my friends. This weekend represented the first time many of us visited Ticonderoga. We thoroughly enjoyed the community and look forward to visiting it again for many years to come. Many of my friends and I are professionals in the museum, history, travel/tourism, intelligence and archaeology industries. We bring decades of educational and professional experience to our re-enacting. We offer the community and the fort a perspective many hobbyists do not have. For my part, I can attest to the fact that museums must rethink business-as-usual policies and begin the process of improving professionalism and site reputation as a peer-approved and subsidized facility worthy of international acclaim and local pride. Multi-use options must be explored so sites such as Fort Ti may be fully self-sufficient and utilized year-round. There is a reason why Ms. (beth) Hill is the executive director of Fort Ti. Perhaps concerned citizens should ask her superiors why she is there and what they hope to achieve during her tenure. With changes, particularly difficult changes, people are bound to become upset. I recommend people stay the course and support the current staff and perhaps even lend support. History has shown people either bend with changes and survive or remain rigid and become irrelevant like a military machine of ancient years — a fort. May the greater Ticonderoga community embrace change, bend, and not only survive this transition, but thrive in its and the fort’s future prosperity. Todd Ballance Smithfield, Va.

Fort Ti’s latest battle

Fort Ti staff superior To the Times of Ti:

Point proven To the Times of Ti: Thank you to the person/persons who put the piece in the paper about the “unfair” tax rates in Crown Point. Too bad you could not have been a little more accurate. But who needs accuracy when you have the power of three? You unknowingly proved our point, the one in which you have all along denied. It is personal. So because of your personal vendetta, we shall all suffer. Thank you again for proving our point from the beginning. We could not have possibly done a better job ourselves. Annette Macey Crown Point

To the Times of Ti:

I couldn't disagree more with the letter from Jeanette Siatkowski (Times of Ti, Sept. 17). I have visited Fort Ticonderoga for over 30 years and have attended the events at Ticonderoga consistently for 14 years...including the F&I (French & Indian War) event held this past June. If you were there, you would remember that the weather was pretty atrocious at times, so in citing the attendance, she may want to consider acts of nature. The quality of interpretive staff was far superior to the previous 13 years combined regardless of what she seem to be confabulating about. The economy is horrible all over, especially in the area, and it’s bad enough without having to add insult to injury by lambasting those individuals who are dedicated to the fort, the community and its history. I suggest she offer proactive solutions to improving the local economy rather than wasting her time and the subscribers time trying to undermine it further with libelous, uninformed banter.

Hague FD provides support To the Times of Ti: The deep water swim held from the Hague beach in late August was provided safety support by our own fire rescue boat, ambulances and EMS crew on stand by. There were no major incidents reported, but good for all that we were there. There were 24 ambulance calls and 12 fire calls for a total of 170 man hours for the month of August. Once again the Hague Volunteer Fire Department will be serving wonderful German dishes at the Octoberfest this year. Knockwurst, bratwurst, sauerkraut, red cabbage and a delicious new German potato salad will be offered for sale at our booth. Come on out to enjoy great food, good music and lots of fun. Leaf peepers will soon be out on our roads, so keep an eye out for them. Joe McCranels Information Officer Hague Volunteer Fire Department.

To the Times of Ti: There has been a conflict brewing for the last couple of years at Fort Ti. It is not a battle like the fort is used to. No cannon fire or volleys of muskets. This is a cultural conflict. On one side (group 1), we have re-enactors/living historians who strive to present an image to the public and to their fellow participants that is as close as possible to their chosen 18th century persona. These folks spend countless hours poring over journals, trade lists, woodcuts, etc to find all the available information on any given subject. Whether it be an $1,800 firearm or a $20 shoe buckle, they want it to be the right one. Their camps are usually pretty Spartan as this is what their research has shown the original camps were. On the other side (group 2), things are different. We have folks for whom “good enough” is the criteria. They use outdated information, or just outright hearsay to base their persona on. Their camps are usually set up like backyard barbecues with huge amounts of chairs, tables, cookware, etc. But the biggest difference shows in their attitudes towards the sites they frequent. Group #1 realizes that it is a privilege to walk onto private property, set up a tent or lean-to, make a fire to cook/heat with and run around with a flintlock. For group #2, it is there right to be at Fort Ti’s events. They “have been coming here since...” is usually their argument. They don’t care about the public getting a small glimpse of the period in question. They care about having fun. Their motivation is to have a costume party. Now that the focus is on getting people to take things more seriously, they have started a campaign of misinformation hoping to get “their fort” back. They figure if they spread enough rumors, falsehoods and outright lies, people will not show up and the fort will be forced to allow them back and go back to “the good old days.” One of them even went so far as to run a fake ad in a well-known Living History newspaper to try and sabotage the June F&I event. These are the people you will hear stating that the fort is being ruined. Group 1 has invited Group 2 along for the ride. It’s offered to help them along in doing a better public interpretation. Group 2 has generally declined harshly (a few have taken up the challenge). The times are changing. Things are improving. The fort is not dying. People need to learn to deal with it and hop on with the rest of the team. Mario Doreste Sharon Springs

Voters have responsibilities

Fight same-sex marriage To the Times of Ti: A number of folks in the community shared their support of the editorial I recently wrote concerning the traditional definition of marriage being desecrated by our New York legislature and governor as they ramrodded through samesex marriage without the consent of the thinking public (and it appears one of the motivating factors was to help our failing economy by bringing in added revenue!). As I write to you, the National Organization for Marriage has completed four amazing rallies in New York, as nearly 10,000 took to the streets to claim their right to vote on the marriage issue! In NYC alone, approximately 6,000 demonstrators showed up in what the Wall Street Journal called “impressive” and “the biggest demonstration we can remember seeing in the neighborhood.” It’s obvious from demonstrations like this that voters still believe in marriage! There’s a reason why American voters have rejected samesex marriage at the ballot box 31 times in a row – even in blue states like California, Oregon and Maine! The 31st was North Carolina, who just this past week voted to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot in 2012 to put the future of marriage in the hands of the people (not just the lawmakers). Both the House and the Senate approved the measure with the constitutionally required 3/5ths majority, referring the marriage amendment to the voters of the state. Don’t believe all the slanted polls touting Americans as supportive of same-sex marriage. In both NOM polls and ABC News polls in New York and Minnesota, when pollsters were asked whether they supported a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, anywhere from 57 - 65 percent supported traditional marriage! For this reason, NOM has launched a “Let the People Vote” campaign in New York. This plan would culminate in a state-wide vote to repeal same-sex marriage in the next two to three years. It is a process and will take time – but it is achievable! NOM has helped voters in both California and Maine overturn same-sex marriage laws forced on their states by politicians and judges, and are well on the way to repealing the same in New Hampshire and Iowa. Several of you called or caught me somewhere and asked how we can overturn this travesty. Here is the address, phone number and website of this organization who are fighting for marriage: National Organization for Marriage, 2029 K Street NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20006 Phone: 888-894-2604 website: Betsi Calhoun Schroon Lake

We could let the (Crown Point) town board decide the issue of a single assessor or we could have put it to a public vote. The board acted within their right to go to a single assessor. The vote is a double edged sword used to make choices or can be used to cut our throats. Making the same choices in election after election is certainly the right of voters but there are consequences, not all of them good. The primary use of the vote should be to strengthen and not weaken democracy. If the issue had been put to a vote, likely nothing would have changed. I doubt that single assessor would have had a chance. More emotion than thought would have driven the vote. Thus, again, the continuous voting for the same assessors would have weakened the democratic process in Crown Point. This issue is now decided and is history. Now on to the November election. Edward Gibbon in his “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” frequently uses the term “insensibly” (syn: unaware, unconscious) to describe various aspects of the demise of that empire. He meant to convey that decisions were and were not made that had the slow effect of rotting the empire from within. We are inclined to believe that the Roman Empire was crushed by the barbarians and other enemies but that was after the rot had set in making for fairly easy pickings. I have increasingly felt that this same process has been afoot in the USA. Now, few of the Romans had any voting rights and there was no democracy, but we have a democracy and voting rights. Are we going to use that vote in November to strengthen democracy? Now Crown Point and it’s problems are tiny in comparison to the national problems of the USA or the Roman Empire. But, the rot that may take down the USA in the end starts at home. We need to use our voting power to promote change and fairness for all the citizens of this town and not to favor the few. Through our failure to use that vote responsibly or even to turn out in larger numbers to vote, our democracy loses strength slowly and insensibly thus ending up with the sword at our throats. By our failure to hold public officials (elected or appointed) to term limits by way of the vote, sooner or later you’ll end up with a board, council or other offices that become more interested in the status quo then caring about change. Favoritism, nepotism and corruption will ensue. It is, unfortunately, human nature and needs to be nipped long before the bud starts growing. Don’t end up with the sword at your throat by your own doing! As an outsider and independent I feel less likely to participate in town elections when I see the same people repeatedly getting re-elected. I’ve sat in on several board meetings and have often wondered why some of the members are there for decades. Why is it that in a town of nearly 2,000 people, the voters seem to think that only a handful should hold office? This serves the people of Crown Point poorly and gives undue advantage to the chosen few and their friends and families. Public service jobs or appointments should not be allowed to turn into careers. The people, by their vote, are ultimately responsible for how this nation and this little town fare. When we vote for the same people decade after decade (local, state or national) we are not voting responsibly nor is the democratic process well served (need I mention the U.S Congress as an example). Every elected or appointed official should have the intent, decency and courage to set their own term limits. And when they fail to do so after holding office for two or three terms at most by showing no desire or intent to leave office and not seek re-election then it is up to the voters to term limit them via the vote. Will this likely happen in November? As the incumbent assessors had given little evidence of thought as to when enough was enough I found myself in full agreement with the town board decision to spell out what enough meant. If the voters would come to their own understanding of enough it is possible that the vote would not be used as a rubber stamp. The voter turnout in Crown Point is weak, especially in off-year elections. This allows but a handful to control the town for many, many years. Is this likely to change? Once in a while it’s necessary for elected board officials to make the hard decisions that will benefit the town. If the electorate would do their job it would not be necessary for the board to do it. Crown Point is fortunate to have a Beth Kosmider as supervisor with Yvonne Dushane and Bob Patnode on the board. They have the ability to think in the best interests and future of the town and exercise their elected right to do so. Let’s stay with a great team! Dick Clark Crown Point

Schools need to do whatever works for their students and communities, White said. “That’s why I’m here to listen and learn,” White told Crown Point teachers. “I want to hear your ideas and figure out what works and why.” Why White believes local schools know best, he also believes schools need help. “Schools need partners,” the federal official said. “CFES is a partner here.

Ticonderoga faces expensive flood repairs TICONDEROGA — Flooding caused by the remnants of Hurricane Irene may have a lasting impact on Ticonderoga taxes. The storm caused seven roads and two bridges to be closed Aug. 28, leaving behind an estimated $1 million in damage to local thoroughfares. It also left the Ti town board trying to figure out a way to pay for repairs. Facing a 2 percent cap on local property taxes in 2012 and beyond, trustees were already considering cuts to services to reduce the town budget. Now, the town board must deal with the unexpected cost of the storm damage. Ticonderoga has applied to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for help. If FEMA agrees to help, it will pay 87.5 percent of the cost of repairs. There are problems, though. There is no assurance FEMA will fund the Ti repairs; if FEMA does grant Ti money the cash will come months from now, so the town still needs the upfront money to make repairs; and even with FEMA help the town faces a $125,000 bill for storm damage. “We can’t count on FEMA,” Ti Supervisor Deb Malaney said. “Hopefully they (FEMA) can help, but we don’t know if they will or how long it may take. Towns that got FEMA help in April (because of spring floods) are still waiting for their money.” Besides dealing with flood damage, Malaney

said, town officials have to be thinking about the upcoming winter. “We just can’t go out and spend all our highway (department) resources,” she said. “We still have winter to get through. We’re going to need the money we budgeted for snow removal.” The answer may be a bond. If Ticonderoga borrows the money for road work repayment will spread the cost of repairs out for years, easing the impact on the 2012 budget. “We’ll pay for what we can and we’ll probably have to bond for the rest of it,” Malaney said. Borrowing is not a happy thought for Ticonderoga officials, who realize the debt will impact future budgets as they try to stay within the state-imposed 2 percent tax cap. “That’s a problem,” Malaney acknowledged. “The tax cap sounded like a great idea, but I’m afraid it’s not sustainable. The 2 percent tax cap may work in a larger municipality with a larger budget and a surplus, but in a small town we have so little cushion to deal with these emergencies. “When we borrow money we’re just pushing the problem down the road,” she said. The 2011 Ticonderoga budget totals $5 million. The highway repairs alone could mean a 20 percent tax increase. Malaney will meet with state and FEMA officials to plead Ticonderoga’s case for assistance. One of the things she plans on asking is whether natural disasters and other emergencies may be exempt from the tax cap. “We really have tightened out (budget) belt,”

Malaney said. “We can’t go much father.” Local municipalities can exceed the 2 percent cap, Malaney explained, with a two-third vote of the board. In Ticonderoga’s case, that means four of five town board members would have to agree to the increase. State law mandates the town provide for highways, sewer, water, courts, fire protection and other items. Items such as library support, youth programs, senior citizen programs, parks, police protection, economic development and others are not mandated. Mandated services can be trimmed, but not eliminated, Malaney explained. Non-mandated items can be eliminated. Town officials are also faced with increasing costs. Malaney pointed out town employee

health insurance costs are expected to increase 9 percent in 2012. Energy costs are also expected to be significantly higher. Complicating the 2012 budget process are employee salaries and benefits. Salaries and benefits account for nearly 80 percent of the Ti town budget, Malaney pointed out. Town employees, union and non-union, agreed to a wage freeze in 2011. Can the town board ask employees for another pay freeze in 2012? Malaney won’t address that issue yet, but stressed the town needs to find ways to become more efficient and cost effective. She said the board will investigate sharing personnel and equipment between the town highway, water and sewer departments.

assume his full-time duties Oct. 15. His office will be located in the Ticonderoga Community Building. The Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance was formed in 2010. It’s a group of private investors who are committed to economic development in the community. Since forming the TRA and its investors has purchased several downtown buildings. The renovation of one ground floor is complete and now houses the expanded Two Brothers Meat Market. The group has also purchased the former Cobbler ’s Bench building. Levitch said the TRA has also been successful in forming partnerships with local groups, such as the town of Ticonderoga, Fort Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce. It is also leading the formation of a Ticonderoga Arts Council. It’ll be up to Woods to continue that momentum, Levitch said, and to expand the TRA efforts to include more local businesses. “We want to reach out to the corporate community and bring them into the investment effort and the process of creating a new prosperity for Ti,” Levitch said. “Private funds can only go so far. The time has come for corporate citizens to step up.” Woods agrees. “I share the goals of the alliance,” Woods said. “My purpose as director is to provide strategic leadership in working with the alliance to meet its goals. I’ll be doing the dayto-day work needed to carry that vision into the future.” Deb Malaney, Ticonderoga supervisor and a member of TRA, believes Woods is the man for the job. “He’s very impressive,” Malaney said. “I think he can do a lot of positive things for the community. “The (national) economy is bad, but you can’t bury your head in the sand,” she added. “You have to find ways to move forward. With the help of the TRA, the chamber, the Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE and others I think we have the pieces in place to succeed. It’s very exciting.”

Woods is anxious to get started. “I will work to effectively support the retention and expansion of existing businesses and aggressively facilitate the establishment and implementation of community and economic revitalization programs that support the creation of new, private sector businesses in the greater Ticonderoga area,” he said. Besides his work in Ogdensburg, Woods has been a planning and management consultant assisting communities with strategic planning, housing, land use, environmental protection, community and economic development, zoning, permitting, code enforcement and municipal management issues. As director of planning and development for the city of Ogdensburg, Woods was the chief policy adviser to the city manager and city council on matters related to the physical and economic development of the city. Woods managed the city’s Planning, Capital Improvement, Housing, Community & Economic Development, Brownfield and Grant Programs, as well as the Strategic Management Program. While Woods was in Ogdensburg he helped the city secure and administer a grant portfolio of over $25 million. Woods also served as the administrative director of the Ogdensburg Growth Fund Development Corporation. The primary function of the growth fund is to administer the city’s economic development and revolving loan fund programs. Woods provided general supervision over the administration of the business affairs of the fund and was in charge of all fund projects. Woods graduated cum laude with a bachelor ’s degree in environmental science and public policy from Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vt., and studied at Cornell University’s City & Regional Planning Graduate Program. Woods is the Central New York Section Director of the Upstate New York Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) and is an affiliate member of the International City Manager ’s Association (ICMA).

formed group committed to addressing local issues, placed an ad in the Sept. 10 Times of Ti highlighting five instances of, what the group believes to be, unfair assessments in the town. Since then Harvey has provided eight other examples of unfair assessments, according to the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point. Crown Point assessors — Ross, Stephen Mackay and Glenn Porter — dispute the group’s claims. Ross, using the current assessment roll and tax maps, discussed each charge made by the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point and offered explanations. One example of unfair assessment cited by the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point is a .17-acre parcel owned by Ross on Main Street assessed at $110 and a .16-acre lot owned by Elizabeth Mason on Route 9N assessed for $8,100. Ross noted his property is a long, narrow driveway leading to his daughter’s home and two other lots owned by other people. Because of its configuration, it can be nothing but a driveway. The Mason property, Ross pointed out, is configured differently and is a building lot. “Assessments are based on actual value,” Ross said. “A building lot is more valuable than a driveway.” The Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point also point to a 2-acre lot owned by assessor Mackay with 120 feet of waterfront on Lake Champlain assessed at $50,800. The group compares it to a 1.8-acre lot owned by Vincent Reneau with 90 feet of waterfront on Lake Champlain assessed at $57,800. Ross said the Mackay lot has a sharp cliff as it meets the lake and has limited access to the water, while the Reneau lot has full access to the lake. That access makes the Reneau lot more valuable, Ross

said. In another example of alleged unfair assessing cited by the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point, a 110.8-acre lot owned by Ross is valued at $42,200, while a 21.5-acre lot owned by Fred Kainer is assessed at $25,700. Ross pointed out his land is a wood lot, Signs across Crown Point are calling for the which is assessed at a “gang of thr ee” to be v oted out of offic e. different rate than resi- Yvonne DuShane , a thr ee-term incumdential property.

Ross pointed out Charles Harrington in the November genCrown Point assessors eral election. Bob Patnode is not up for rerecuse themselves when election this year. dealing with their own or family members’ property. Those values are assigned by the two remaining assessors. Harvey doesn’t believe the explanations and has relayed these, and other, examples of what she feels are unfair assessments to the state attorney general’s office in Plattsburgh. Glen Michaels of the attorney general’s office refused comment on any possible investigation. Harvey claims she has no interest in local assessments other than justice. She acknowledged she has challenged her Crown Point assessment three times and had it was reduced each time — once in court, once by the town board of assessment review and once by assessors themselves. “I don’t have anything against the assessors; everything has always worked out in my favor,” Harvey said. “My purpose in doing this is to get people interested. Most people don’t fully understand assessments and what they mean. We want people to get involved and ask questions.” Harvey pointed out all town assessment rolls are available on the Essex County website — The local roll is also available in the assessors’ office in the town hall. Ross said Crown Point assessors welcome the scrutiny. “There are no secrets here,” Ross said. “Any time people want to look at this (assessment) book they’re welcome to call and come down. We’ve never turned anyone down who wanted to see the book or ask questions.” Ross went on to review the land owned by each assessor. Ross owns five parcels with a total assessment of $280,110. Mackay owns eight parcels with a total assessment of $385,100. Porter has one parcel valued at $200,000. Crown Point has 1,700 parcels with a total assessed value of $147 million.

Assessors eliminated In July, the Crown Point town board voted 3-2 to eliminate the elected three-person board of assessors in favor of a sole, appointed assessor, effective Dec. 31. Supervisor Bethany Kosmider Signs in Crown Point call for the “gang of joined with trustees three” —Super visor Bethany Kosmider Yvonne DuShane and and trustees Yvonne DuShane and Bob Bob Patnode in voting Patnode — to resign following their vote for the change. Trustees to eliminate the elec ted board of assesCharles Mazurowski sors in fa vor of a sole , appointed assesand Tom Walters opsor. posed it. Supporters of a sole assessor claim the move will save the town about $18,000 a year, noting the change was recommended by the town budget reduction committee. Opponents feel the current assessors are doing a good job, that money can be saved in other areas of the budget and people have a right to elect assessors. Kosmider said the decision to change to a sole assessor was strictly a financial move and had nothing to do with questions about the ethics of local assessors. She declined to comment on the current assessors. Ross believes Crown Point assessors are now being questioned in an attempt to justify the earlier decision to eliminate them. “They are trying to make us look crooked and prove the town board was right to get rid of us,” Ross said of the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point. “They just keep nitpicking until they come up with something to make us look bad.” Kosmider said she is not a member of the Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point. In fact, she was unaware of the group until the Sept. 10 Times of Ti ad. Ross said someone has been in his office, apparently looking through files in an attempt to find embarrassing or incriminating information. He said some files are missing. Harvey stressed her information comes from the county website. She said she has never removed any material from the assessors’ office. Kosmider also said she has never removed anything from the assessors’ office. Ross believes the town board voted to eliminate the elected assessors because of an incident involving residents Don and Joan Miller. In 2009, the Millers challenged their assessment and won in court. The following year assessors raised the Millers’ assessment. They again challenged it, but this time the assessors won. This past spring, at a special town board meeting, the Millers,

* Normal - A “normal” site indicates an average commercial location. There is adequate vehicular traffic and parking. Site is fairly close to a major shopping district. Rental values of buildings will be average for their condition and there are likely to be few vacancies.

** Excellent -An “excellent” site indicates that the site is in one of the best possible commercial locations. All buildings in area are occupied and generate

fairly high rents. Examples include a highly successful regional Shopping mall or best street(s) of a revitalized downtown area. Extensive vehicular and/or pedestrian traffic, and an abundance of parking. The rents paid for such a space will be the highest for their type in the municipality.

Cemetery group looks to future, plans annual meeting for Oct. 4 CROWN POINT — The Forest Dale Cemetery Association will hold its annual meeting Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 9 a.m. at the Crown Point fire house. “Friends and members of Forest Dale Cemetery Association will reflect on a busy year just past,” said the Rev. David Hirtle of the association. “In a year that saw torrents of water running through the park, during both the spring rains and run-off as well as the effects of Hurricane Irene, the schedules and maintenance have had to be adapted to and challenging.

Assessors From page 16 their attorney, the assessors, the town board and town attorney gathered to discuss the Millers’ assessment. The Millers presented an appraisal that showed their property was worth $190,000. In that meeting, Ross claims he was pressured to lower the Miller assessment. Noting the assessors are independently elected, he refused. “It got very heated,” Ross said. “I’ll admit, I was upset. The town board had no right to interfere with assessments.” Kosmider remembers the meeting differently. She said the Millers were threatening to sue the town and the town board was simply looking for a compromise. “We never told Carl (Ross) to lower the assessment,” Kosmider said. “We wouldn’t do that.” The Millers, who are assessed at $249,000, wanted their value reduced to $190,000. After the assessors refused their request, the Millers again went to court. The court upheld the assessors’ value. “It’s not fair,” Don Miller said of his assessment. “They (asses-

“The Memorial Day service, which annually highlights the many famous burial sites as well as providing a time for the community to come forward and decorate their loved ones memorials, was moved from the traditional area of the Hammond Circle to the front lawn,” he said. “This change of venue helped to avoid areas where the flow of water and mud was almost overwhelming.” Because of the rain, regular maintenance has been sporadic at best in the park. “The struggle to keep the access road in good re-

They enjoy having power over people.” Don Miller is a member of the town budget reduction committee. After assessors refused to lower his assessment, that committee recommended the elimination of the elected assessors to the town board. Miller said his personal situation had no impact on the committee’s recommendation. “We’ve certainly had our fights, but I have no animosity toward the assessors,” Miller said. “We looked a long list of suggestions to save money and going to a sole assessor was one of them. My situation played no role.” Ultimately, the town board accepted the recommendation of the budget reduction committee and voted to eliminate the elected three-person board of assessors in favor of a sole, appointed assessor.

pair as well as the keeping the lawn mowed and sites maintained and free of debris were difficult at best,” Hirtle said. “The association wishes to thank Robin Knapp and friends for their diligence in maintaining the access road during this difficult period. On several occasions, Robin has had to resurface sections of the road following heavy rain and run-off.” Hirtle also thanked Gary Comes and his family for maintaining the appearance of the park. The association will look to the future at the an-

Supervisor: Decision’s aftermath ‘horrifying’ The Crown Point town boardʼs decision to eliminate the elected assessors has divided the community. Some support the assessors, others support the decision and still others believe the issue should have gone to a public referendum. Signs have gone up criticizing the “gang of three” — Kosmider, DuShane and Patnode — who voted for the change. Town board meetings have become raucous. Letters to the editor have been published. Discussions — sometimes fights — have taken place on streets. “Itʼs been horrendous whatʼs happened since that vote,” Kosmider said. “Friends and neighbors are arguing. People have been intimidated and threatened. Itʼs terrible.” Kosmider noted she and Mackay are next door neighbors and longtime friends. That relationship has been strained, she said. Kosmider said she has been forced to call the state police on three occasions. Gunshots were fired near her home the night of the assessor vote; she was forced off the road by a friend of an assessor, whom she refused to identify; and after she became “concerned” with comments directed at her by Mackay. No arrests have been made. “I feel this wouldnʼt be happening to me if I was a man,” Kosmider said. “They think Iʼm vulnerable, but Iʼm not going to sit idly and be threatened. “The tactics theyʼre using arenʼt fair,” she said. “This has gone way beyond politics.” Ross said he supports people speaking their minds, but not threats. “People are upset,” he said. “Iʼm upset. I donʼt think itʼs right (the move to a sole assessor).”

Kosmider said misinformation and outright lies are fueling the controversy. “Why go out and tell people things that arenʼt true?” she asked. “People have been told theyʼll lose their STAR, ag (agriculture) exemption, veterans exemption, senior exemption. Thatʼs not true. The state put these things into place and only the state can change them. “Misinformation and exaggeration are no substitute for facts,” she said. “Fear has no place in a democracy.” Kosmider declined to say who is spreading the misinformation. The issue is now political. Signs across town are calling for the “gang of three” to be voted out of office. DuShane, a three-term incumbent, was defeated in the Crown Point Republican primary Sept. 13. Kosmider a Democrat will face Republican Charles Harrington in the November general election. Patnode is not up for re-election this year. Ross said he will work to defeat those who voted to eliminate the elected assessors. “Iʼm going to support candidates I believe will do the best job for the town,” Ross said. “I want whatʼs best for the town.” Kosmider hopes to be re-elected in November. She remains convinced the move to a sole assessor is right for the community. “The calls, letters, people we meet on the street — they make me realize we did the right thing,” Kosmider said. “Weʼre trying to do whatʼs best for Crown Point. “We have an election coming up,” she said. “After that election, win or lose, the town will move on. I give the people of Crown Point a lot of credit. They fight for what they believe in, but in the end they always come together and move forward for the good of the town.”

Marnell wins Schroon GOP nod in primary Crown Point incumbent defeated

By Fred Herbst

SCHROON LAKE — Michael Marnell will be the Republican nominee for supervisor in the town of Schroon this November. Marnell claimed the nod in GOP primary voting Sept. 13. Marnell garnered 127 votes to edge Meg Woods, who had 121. Dennis Christian had 44 votes. Cathy Moses, Schroon’s incumbent supervisor, is not seeking re-election. No Democrat has filed to run in the November election, although Wood and Christian will be on the ballot as independents. Marnell served as Schroon’s highway superintendent 20 years before retiring. He also served 10 years on the town board and spent six years on the Schroon Lake school board. Wood is district director for Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward and a member of the Schroon town board. Christian is a local businessman. Clara Phibbs and Don Sage, both incumbents, won Republican nominations for two Schroon town board seats. Phibbs received 194 votes and Sage 169. Bruce Caza got 101 votes. All will be on the ballot in November — Phibbs and Sage as Republicans and Caza as an independent. Dana Shaughnessy, the incumbent, captured the GOP nomination for highway superintendent in Schroon with 197 votes. Dale Pecor had 97 votes. Both will be on the ballot in November ’s general election, Shaughnessy as a Republican and Pecor as an independent.

Crown Point The decision to eliminate the board of assessors in favor of a sole, appointed assessor may have cost a Crown Point trustee party support. Yvonne DuShane, a three-term incumbent, was defeated in the Crown Point Republican primary Sept. 13. Charles Mazurowski, an incumbent, received 213 votes and Tara Peters 211 to win GOP nominations for two seats on the town board. DuShane got 114 votes and Sherlene Simpson Barrows 108. DuShane and Simpson Barrows will appear on the November general election ballot as independents. DuShane joined with trustee Bob Patnode and Supervisor Bethany Kosmider in voting to eliminate Crown Point’s board of assessors in July. The move sparked furor in the community with supporters of the assessors promising to remove the “gang of three” from office. Patnode is not up for election this year. Kosmider, a Democrat, will face Republican Charles Harrington in the November general election. Mazurowski, who served 12 years as town supervisor and 19 on the town board, opposed the change in assessing. Peters works at Mountain Lake Services in Crown Point as an auditor and served in the past as manager and staff educator and trainer.

At age 71, Ticonderoga coach still winning gold medals Thorne shines at World Games By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Walter Thorne continues to be one of the top masters runners in the world. The Ticonderoga man claimed four gold medals and set two records while competing in the World Fire and Police Games in New York City last month. Thorne, age 71, won the 400-meter run with a record time of 1 minute, 11.19 seconds — making him one of a handful of athletes in the world capable of running 400 meters to match their age of better (age 71, time 71.19 seconds). “My goal every year is to run the 400 meters lower than my age of 71,” Thorne said. “This year was extremely difficult. I had surgery in March and was not able to start training until July. Then I suffered an ankle injury two weeks before the competition was to start on Aug. 27. I had to take 10 days off prior to competition.” He also won the 200-meter sprint in 31.07 seconds, a record time, and ran legs on the winning 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams. The World Fire and Police Games are an Olympic-style competition held in odd years in different countries. This year ’s games had over 15,000 athletes take part.

The 2011 event was held in New York City to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Thorne, the Ticonderoga High School track and field coach, nearly missed the World Fire and Police Games because of Hurricane Irene. “I was scheduled to leave for New York on Saturday by train but Hurricane Irene forced all trains to be canceled,” he said. “We rescheduled for Monday but were told on Monday that all trains were canceled until further notice. My wife and I decided that since I had spent to much time preparing for the games we would to drive to New York, which normally takes me about four hours . It took a total of seven hours because of road flooding and roads being washed away.” The storm may have cost Thorne another medal. He arrived in New York City on Monday and missed the 100-meter dash, an event he has won in the past.

Moriah played undefeated Peru tough for a quarter Sept. 17, but a punt return for a score seemed to knock the Vikings for a loop. Tyler Murphy returned a punt 53 yards for a touchdown to give Peru a 7-0 lead. Less than a minute later, Shawn Hendrix intercepted an errant Moriah pass and returned it 4 yards for a TD and it was 14-0. After forcing a Moriah punt, Peru then drove for another score, this time on a 16-yard run by Jeff Kurz. In a span of four minutes the contest went from scoreless to a 20-0 Peru advantage. Peru added two more touchdowns in the third quarter to account for the final score. Tom Ida led Moriah with 74 yards rushing, 61 one a single play in the first quarter. Jimmy Curran ran for 55 yards for the Vikings.

ooler weather has already jump-started the fall foliage season, prior to the arrival of the autumn equinox, which occurs on Sept. 23. As daylight hours continue to diminish with each passing day, we can expect the usual cool, crisp air and heavy valley fog of early fall mornings. Although recent flooding has adversely affected the prime fall tourist season, the NYSDEC has been working in cooperation with trail crews from the ADK, to get the trails reopened. In this regard, common sense trumped the policies that banned the use of motorized equipment in wilderness areas. Fortunately, the restrictions have been temporarily loosened. In order to restore some semblance of order to the backwoods, and open the trails, Forest Rangers and trail crews will now be allowed to utilize chainsaws, rather than being limited to the use of handsaws or axes, in their efforts. The DEC still urges travelers to be aware that even though some trails were not officially closed, they may still have bridges missing or wash outs. River crossings may continue to be hazardous for some time. Routes may also have areas of blowdown, eroded sections or flooded areas. Close attention is required, as many trails have been rerouted to bypass damaged sections and eroded drainages can be mistaken for trails. Details regarding current trail conditions and closures may be found on the High Peaks Trail Information web page:

Celebration of the sporting seasons The Sportsmen’s High Holy Days have arrived, and the traditional changing of the forest guard has already begun. Over the course of the next few weeks, sportsmen will begin taking to the woods again, for their high season. Outdoor fashion will shift from GoreTex and lycra to green woolies and a buffalo plaid jacket. Beat up, old pickup trucks will start cropping up along the backroads again, and “Didja get yours yet?” will serve as a formal greeting, whether at the post office, the doctors office, or at church. Many local hunting camps have already been humming with activity, as work parties struggle to tidy up matters in response to the recent storm damage. Trails will be cleared, road ruts repaired, and leaky roofs patched and plugged, as mattresses are aired out and mouse traps reset prior to the Regular Big Game Season which begins Oct. 22. The annual hunting season was jumpstarted last week, as Early Bear Season began on Sept. 17. Bird hunters began working the fields and forests seeking ruffed grouse when their new season on Sept. 20. This season, the DEC is asking archery hunters to maintain a Bowhunter Sighting Log by keeping a diary of their bowhunting activity and the number of animals observed. The data will be utilized to help DEC track deer and other wildlife populations. Bowhunters, much as turkey hunters, spend a majority of their time in a stand, or a blind while hunting during the early morning or late afternoon hours. Experienced hunters know that it is easier to detect movement, from a stationary position. As a result, they are more likely to observe wildlife, than hunters who utilize more traditional methods such as deer drives, or still hunting. If you are interested, please e-mail and include "Bowhunter Sighting Log" in the subject line. Please provide your name, address, hunter ID (back tag number), a list of the counties where you hunt, and whether you have participated in New York's bowhunter log in any previous year. Grouse hunters are again encouraged to participate in the Grouse Hunters Diary Cooperator Program, which assists the DEC in assessing and managing grouse hunting opportunities statewide. Call the local DEC office for further information and registration materials. On Oct. 1, the fall season begins for both wild turkey and pheasant in the northern zone, as well as for woodcock. Woodcock hunters must again register with the Harvest Information Program in order to hunt this migratory species.

A Surge of Salmon Angling opportunities will also pick up considerably in the coming weeks, particularly on the local lakes and ponds. Brook and brown trout have already begun pooling up on the streams, and similar activity is just a few

Youth pheasant hunt planned in Willsboro The Willsboro fish & game will be having a youth pheasant hunt Sept. 24 - 25 at 8 a.m. It is open to youths 12-15 years old you must have a current nys hunting licenses. For more information call 963-4421 or Jim Hotaling 963-7430.

short weeks away on the ponds. When I spoke with NYSDEC Region 5, Fisheries Biologist Rich Preall earlier this week, he was still in the process of assessing the damage to local waterways from the recent storms. He explained, “The small streams, like Johns Brook in Keene Valley, and Gulf Brook in Keene really got hit hard. They were scoured and it may be years before they’ll be able to support trout again.” “The rivers has changed too, there are new pools and new riffles. After completing numerous flyover inspections, the Army Corps of Engineers reported numerous debris dams along the Ausable, that will need to be removed.” However, Preall also had some positive news, as well. “The fish ladder at Willsboro is already open, and we expect a big run of salmon on the Boquet River this year! We’ve already passed fifteen fish upriver, and there are a lot of fish below the falls. There were outstanding reports from the lake this summer, with anglers taking salmon up to six pound and in good numbers. We’ve also had a lot of cooperation from the various agencies, which have allowed us to continue with our scheduled lamprey control efforts. Fortunately, they’ve waived restrictions on the stocking periods.” DEC has scheduled lamprey control efforts for Thursday, Sept. 22, on the lower sections of the Boquet River.

Moose sightings in NewYork are becoming more and more prevalent as their numbers grow. Pictured above is a young bull that apparently swam Lake Champlain, exiting the wat er near Barber Point Campground in Westport and making its way toward Route 9 (Photo by Rob King). Below is a cow moose in Thurman that apparently will no longer be allowed on the trail after Dec. 1. With a little luck, the two will find one another in the coming weeks.

ummer drawing to a close gives me a warm fuzzy feeling for a whole host of reasons. The cool bugless evenings. The changing colors. The impending hunting seasons. The way it feels to go commando in a pair of woolies. Last but not least, I love this time of year for the annual ritual of nasty, filthy, vile, godawful, disease riddled, toothy varmints taking up residence for the winter months in the eves of my home. Like sand through the hourglass, these are the days of my life. At least in the fall. And I hate it. I’ve set traps. I’ve covered openings with thick wire a trout worm couldn’t wiggle through. I’ve eaten a bunch of venison and washed it down with lots of cheap beer. In hindsight, I’m not sure how that helped, but it sure kept the neighbors at arm’s length. It didn’t seem to bother the varmints, though. Nope, fact was I needed a better plan. So, while finishing off my last Milwaukee’s Best, it hit me: I’d arm my humble abode with the meanest varmint assassin I could find — the Chuck Norris of the cat world. The type of feline that picks its teeth with piano wire, drinks from a broken mason jar and sharpens its claws with pool chalk. The kind that can take a punch from George Foreman — or at least one of his handy fat-reducing grills. The kind that can bury its own poo on a marble floor. You get the idea. There was one slight fault in my infallible plan, though. When it came time to choose my attack cat, I let the girlfriend go in my stead. She came home from the shelter with not one, but two cats, because, as she put it, “I couldn’t break up sisters.” (This is the part in the story where I stick my finger down my throat.) “Aren’t they cute,” she said, opening her outstretched hand and unveiling two tiny orange balls of fluff with eyes the size of quarters. “Nooooooooohhhhhhhhhh,” I screamed over my plate of venison, jumping to my feet and nearly knocking over my Pabst Blue Ribbon. “I didn’t want cute,” I screamed, hands on my hips, staring down at the quarter-sized eyes attached to the pieces of orange fluff in the outstretched hand. “Blink, blink” went the eyes. “I wanted a killing machine,” I blurted through venison and beer spittle. “These are not mouse assassins.” “These are not cats that could take a punch.” “Blink, blink” went the eyes. “These are not ... they are ... well, I guess they are kind of cute.” Fast forward to last evening. I’m on the couch, feet up in my lounge loafers, eating venison and watching my Yankees duke it out with Seattle, a fat, lazy orange cat on either side, slumbering away. “Plop” the first disease riddled varmint of the season showed its nasty, filthy, vile, godawful, toothy little face, landing smack in the middle of my hardwood floor. “Brfff, rffff .... mrfff,” I said, choking on a piece of venison. “Mouse,” I finally blurted out slapping at the cats with my free hand. “Fire mission, fire mission,” I yelled, reverting for a second to my days as an Army gunner. I stood back, not wanting to get tangled up in what was sure to be an epic battle, the likes of which had not been played out since Russell Crowe fought those tigers in the movie “Gladiator.” But the cats never moved. “Blink, blink” went their eyes. “Whyyyyyyyyyyy,” I wailed, arms stretched toward the ceiling, like Nancy Kerrigan after getting whacked in the shin at that practice session during the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Then, just when I thought all was lost, a black head emerged from beneath a pink blanket. Like a tiny super hero, my dachshund Cedar shot off the recliner, skidded across the floor and flipped the hapless rodent in the air, snatching it in her surprisingly powerful weiner dog jaws. Turning to the cats, shoestring-like tail hanging from her mouth, Don’t let the cute, innocent look fool Cedar sat and waited for you — this dog is a Gladiator! the sign from the Colosseum crowd. Much to the chagrin of the mouse, two furry legs shot out and slowly turned paws down. But Cedar, the Gladiator, just turned and sauntered away with her prey, not giving the spectators the satisfaction. “That’s my dog,” I thought to myself, resuming my seat at the throne and taking a long swig of my Genny Cream Ale.
