This is something we can, and should,

replicate statewide.” Sunukjian was joined by other state, county and local officials in a tour of the new facility recently. The project, originally expected to cost $170,000, was completed for about $50,000, according to Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava. Most of that expense was covered by a $42,000 grant from the Justice Court Administration Program, which is overseen by Sunukjian. “It’s very impressive; it’s a real

Flashlight Nights to be held at Fort Ti TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga will offer after-dark tours this month. Flashlight Nights will be held Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27, beginning at 6 p.m. “Bring your flashlight to this family-fun fall event where you will hear the story of Fort Ticonderoga inside the walls of the fort and use your flashlight to guide your way through the Heroic Corn Maze where a multitude of twists and turns through acres of corn stalks await,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ti executive director. “Meet historic interpreters in the fort as they bring to life the often frightening situations they have encountered while serving at this frontier outpost in 1775,” Hill said. “Ask them about the bloody 1758 Battle of Carillon and rumors that the bones of men killed in that battle were still visible on the


battlefield during the Revolution. Don’t let the calm of the night fool you as you walk through dimly lit areas of the fort and better understand the epic history that surrounds you.” The “Heroic Maze: A Corn Maze Adventure” is located near the fort’s Garrison Garden. Visitors find clues connected to Fort Ticonderoga’s story as they find their way through the 6-acre maze. “Fort Ticonderoga has a long and often violent history,” Hill said. “Constructed in 1755, the fort was the scene of the bloodiest day of battle in American history prior to the Civil War when on July 8, 1758, nearly 2,000 British and Provincial soldiers were killed or wounded during a day-long battle attempting to capture the fort from the French army. During the American Revolution nearly 20 years later thousands of American soldiers died of sickness while defending the United States from British invasion from the north.” Pre-registration is encouraged. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 years and younger. To purchase tickets call 5852821. Tickets will also available at the gate. The last ticket sold will be at 8:30 p.m. Beverages and concessions will be available for purchase and proper footwear will be needed to navigate the uneven terrain. People should bring their own flashlights. For more information go online at

Sweet history event coming to Fort Ti Chocolate to be highlighted Oct. 13 By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — A living history event at Fort Ticonderoga will take a look at the use of chocolate in the 18th Century. Connecticut soldiers posted in the fall of 1775 at Fort Ticonderoga’s will be portrayed Saturday, Oct. 13. They will demonstrate how chocolate was a simple luxury enjoyed by enlisted soldiers as well as officers. The event will be part of the fort’s “Chocolate Covered History” symposium Oct. 12-13. “As per the May 11, 1775, Connecticut Assembly Resolves Connecticut soldiers serving at Fort Ticonderoga were to receive as part of their rations milk, molasses, candles, soap, vinegar, coffee, chocolate, sugar, tobacco, onions and vegetables in season,” said Stuart Lilie, Fort Ticonderoga director of interpretation. “Yes, Chocolate! And these rations made it all the way to Ticonderoga and became a bone of contention with the New York soldiers who were not nearly as well provisioned that year.” The living history event Oct. 13 will allow visitors a look

at the officer ’s mess, where hot drinking chocolate made the final course to an early breakfast or late day supper. Rodney Snyder, chocolate history research director for Mars Chocolate , will also be on hand to share the importance of chocolate in American history. Free samples of hot chocolate featuring American Heritage Chocolate, an authentic colonial chocolate recipe made only from ingredients available in the 18th century made by Mars Chocolate, will be available throughout the day. The symposium will feature presentations on the role chocolate played throughout history, including its 18th century use at outposts like Fort Ticonderoga. Breakout sessions will provide opportunities to taste various foods prepared using American Heritage Chocolate, an authentic colonial chocolate recipe made only from ingredients available in the 18th century, made by Mars Chocolate. Following a Friday evening champagne-dessert reception at The Sagamore Resort in Bolton, the symposium will begin Saturday at Fort Ticonderoga with “Chocolate in the Americas: Connecting History from the Amazon to New England” presented by Rodney Snyder, chocolate history research director for Mars Chocolate. Christopher Fox, curator of collections at Fort Ticonderoga, will present the second session, “Breakfasting on Chocolate: Chocolate in the Military Dur-

Elizabethtown Community Hospital

ing the French & Indian War and American Revolution.” Afternoon sessions will include “Wine and Chocolate: Perfect Pairing” led by Janine Stowell of Banfi Vintners; “Baking with American Heritage Chocolate” with Chef Gail Sokol; “Tuthilltown Spirits Whiskey Seminar” with Ralph Erenzo, co-founder of Tuthilltown Spirits; and “A Revolution in Chocolate: 18th-Century Energy Drink” led by Fort Ticonderoga’s Director of Interpretation Stuart Lilie. The event will conclude with a Saturday evening gala at The Sagamore Resort and will include a cocktail reception and four course meal integrating chocolate into every recipe. Proceeds from the “Chocolate Covered History” symposium and gala will support Fort Ticonderoga’s educational and interpretive programs. “Chocolate Covered History” is presented in partnership with The Sagamore Resort ( and American Heritage Chocolate ( Additional “Chocolate Covered History” sponsors include Amtrak, William Grant & Sons, Banfi Vintners, Veuve Clicquot Champagne and Tuthilltown Spirits. A variety of symposium event pricing is available including symposium only options as well as package pricing. For information go online at or call 585-2821.

Jobs lives on through the innovations he leaves behind


hursday Oct. 5, when computers were fired up around the globe, many thousands of them began showing a slide show of black-and-white images of Apple Computer founder, the late Steve Jobs. This compelling memorial presentation — depicting highlights of his career on the oneyear anniversary of his untimely death — transfixed many, including employees at Denton Publications. Jobs has indeed exerted a remarkable influence in all of our lives. His innovations have granted us all incredible power, a connectedness and access that we couldn’t have imagined just decades ago. Plenty has been said about how he made music personal — and transformed the music industry — with the iPod, or how he launched a new era of creativity in film and television animation through his work at Pixar. But his crowning achievement was perhaps the iPhone — a truly revolutionary device. Combining a cell phone with an Internet communicator — and the ability for this remarkable, device to run apps — has changed the world forever. Whether it’s the ability to use a handheld device to conduct instant financial transactions on-the-go, shooting and editing videos, or remotely controlling your home’s environment, it can all be done now, on-the-go, from anywhere on the globe on a handheld device. Its potential uses are virtually unlimited. Many of us at Denton’s depend on the device so we can best accomplish our daily work in a demanding industry. Steve Jobs was the visionary that made it all happen — It has been said that Jobs knew what we all wanted and needed before we could even imagine it. But all the recent attention on this latest device shouldn’t overshadow Jobs’ work in the late 1970s and early 1980s that was no less revolutionary — merging graphics with digital information. Before Jobs’ innovations in this regard, computers only displayed little 1/8-inch-high numbers and letters on monochrome monitors. Jobs’ commitment to personal computers’ graphical interface, mouse and WYSIWYG, or “What You See Is What You Get,” changed all our lives forever. Many of you can surely remember the early Internet, when only numbers and letters were transmitted from computer to a remote machine. These developments changed dissemina-

tion of news forever, and those of us in the newspaper industry are acutely aware of Jobs’ influence. Before Jobs and Apple computer, typesetting was accomplished by phototypesetters, hulking machines that cost $50,000 to $125,000 and suffered frequent breakdowns — requiring repairs that were likely to cost more than the purchase-price of a high-end desktop computer. Reporters used typewriters to compose their articles, often typing them up several times in their entirety for a final draft. When Denton Publications armed their employees with Apple computers — we were “early adopters” — our reporters and editors gained speed and creativity, as well as pursuing higher standards in our work. Those costly and unreliable phototypesetters were scrapped. The Apple computers gave us remarkable capability to readily compete with the corporate giants in getting vital news out to the public on a timely basis. Jobs’ innovation of a graphical interface, combined with the Internet a decade or so later, prompted a seismic shift in publishing, as people began obtaining news faster and more conveniently via the Internet. A new generation has increasingly adopted this digital conduit as more convenient and satisfying. We at Denton Publications embraced this trend early on — about a decade ago — delivering community news on an array of websites, when many other newspapers were depending solely on newsprint. Since then, we have continued our commitment to digital news delivery by continually enhancing our online offerings. Also, we have the most advanced digital pre-press composition equipment that can deliver the highest-fidelity printed products — also an indirect result of Jobs’ remarkable vision. We at Denton Publications are thankful for Steve Jobs’ incredible talent and imagination. Although he has passed on, his remarkable contributions to society — which are bringing us all closer together — live on through the innovations he left behind. This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Shaun Kittle, Keith Lobdell, Stephen Bartlett, Andy Flynn, Katherine Clark and John Gereau.

The U.S. debt remains our darkest cloud


n the next month, as the election nears, we’ll continue to hear a great deal about the U.S. debt now more than $16 trillion and climbing. While the nation faces many issues nothing is more serious to our long term stability as a sovereign nation than the massive debt we’ve accumulated over the past decade. You may have heard some of these analogies before but getting a true understanding of the sheer size and scope of this debt will, I hope, cause us each to recognize why this issue must be addressed and why we absolutely must begin reversing the spending habits of this nation. If you spent one million dollars a day since the day Jesus was born, 2,012 years ago, you would not have spent one trillion dollars but, instead, only about $750 billion dollars. If that’s not personal enough for you, consider this, based on the current U.S. population, every U.S. citizen — man, woman and child — now owes just under $50,000 each to pay for the debt we’ve racked up over the past few years. In 2011 the World Bank estimated that the Gross World Product—the value of the products world-wide—would be valued at approximately $80.7 trillion dollars. In the United States the Gross National Product is valued at approximately $15.2 trillion dollars. Our debt now exceeds the total one-year production of the entire country. The U.S. government is the world’s biggest client, spending more money — our money — than any other entity in the world. The U.S. government spends one million dollars every eight seconds and currently borrows approximately 40 percent of the money it spends. In the last year alone our debt rose by $1.2 trillion. In comparison the world’s tenth largest economy is our neighbor to the north, Canada. Their economy is $1.7 trillion. Our neighbor to the south, Mexico, the fourteenth largest economy, is just slightly smaller then our 2011 debt. In fact our debt has now grown so large that there isn’t enough cash in the world to cover the debt, so the federal government has become the major purchaser of the debt, financing it by printing more than $1.6 trillion. I don’t know about you but those numbers should be scaring the daylights out of us all. But perhaps we’ve all just become so accustomed to borrowing money that as long as the country can continue to borrow we assume that there must not be a problem. Sure, we hear about the debt and the reduction in the credit rating, but does it really hit home, or, as they say, is ignorance bliss? As citizens of this country we are all co-signers and ultimately guarantors of this debt that’s been accumulating by Republicans and Democrats alike — we all own a piece of this. Like any household, the more money you owe the more expensive it becomes to borrow money. At some point, regardless of how much interest you are willing to pay, lenders won’t put more of their money at risk knowing you are so far in

the hole they’ll never see their money again. When you are spending 40 percent more money than you bring home, how long do you think it will take beDan Alexander fore someone comes Thoughts from Behind the Pressline knocking on the door? The biggest difference between personal finance and the U.S. government is the government’s ability to print more cash. As long as our lenders, the other countries around the world, continue to turn a blind eye to this practice we can get away with it, but just as the government looks unfavorably on counterfeiters, so do the other nations of the world. Like any large debtor, once it becomes apparent we have no intent or ability to change our spending ways and pay off this debt, our dollar will be rendered as having no value and other assets will be claimed in place of the cash to cover the debt. The candidates will both talk about their plans to reduce spending and tackle the debt. Until the American public is willing to step up and demand that debt reduction is priority number one, our national leaders will value election and reelection more than being the disciplined leaders who tell us the hard, cold facts we would rather not hear nor deal with. Think about your newborn child or grandchild who was just born owing $50,000 because we lacked the resolve to address this growing debt. Democrats want to increase taxes to the rich. Republicans want to see the economy improved so more people can help carry the tax load. We must be willing to face the truth. It will take every man, woman and child to step up and accept their share of this debt. Rich, middle income or poor, we must all accept responsibility. There can be no more passing the buck, the blame or failure to accept these facts. If we fail to recognize this crisis, the interest on the debt alone, estimated at more than $400 billion annually, will outpace our efforts to reduce the principle debt. So as you watch and listen to the upcoming debates, and the candidates talking about their plans to be fiscally responsible by cutting costs and reducing the debt with plans in the billions spread out over many years so as to sound good today, but placing the true impact long after they have left office, be mindful. I hope you can put your arms around the magnitude of our debt and how those plans may pale in comparison to the true crisis we face and the tremendous burden we are placing on future generations.

Letters to the Editor

Race aided literacy efforts To the Times of Ti:


Which Bill Owens? To the Times of Ti:

Literacy Volunteers of Clinton County and Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties hosted the first annual Run for Reading and Book Swap on Sept. 23 at the Cadyville Rec Park. The event heightened public awareness, leveraged resources and increased the number of people who understand the vital role adult and family literacy plays in our community’s well-being. We recognize all of our sponsors: ProLiteracy, Avery Energy, Baxter’s Bagels, Bill McBride Chevrolet, Casella, the Country Florist and Gifts, Dunkin Donuts in Ticonderoga, Knights of Columbus # 255, the Mt. View Indian Lake Association, Pepsi and Sullivan Orchard. Several individuals and businesses sent financial contributions. Thanks to all who ran, walked and cheered for a great cause. The SUNY Plattsburgh African Youth Leadership Training participants from Mauritania and Ivory Coast experienced firsthand the F-U-N in fundraising to support a volunteer literacy organization. The expertise of Don Evans, Jack and Gayle Wilson and Jim Medeiros simplified planning and made the day run smoothly. The sanction by the USA Track and Field Adirondack Association and the presence of the Cadyville Fire Department provided a safety net for everybody. Last, but not least, we thank all of the volunteers who helped at the event in addition to those who provided delicious home baked prizes. Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year! Norma Menard Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers of Clinton County Maria Burke Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties

If you are supporting Bill Owens for Congress, which Bill Owens are you supporting? Are you supporting the Bill Owens that was running for Congress and said he didn’t know how he was going to vote on Obama Care, or the Bill Owens who voted for Obama Care on his first day in Washington to find out what was in it? Are you supporting the Bill Owens who says he supports North Country Values or the Bill Owens who continues to vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House? Are you supporting the Bill Owens that says he wants to help small businesses, or the Bill Owens who voted for Card Check to take the secret ballot out of union elections and make it impossible for small businesses to properly present their side in an election? Are you supporting the Bill Owens who falsely claims he created 20,000 jobs with PARC or the Bill Owens who in reality did a little legal paperwork for those who actually created the jobs? Are you supporting the Bill Owens who says he will protect our individual freedoms, or the Bill Owens who cosponsored the SOPA Bill to allow the government to take away your Internet freedom without any due process of law? Are you supporting the Bill Owens who had a wonderful vacation paid for by a foreign lobbyist or the Bill Owens who, after he was caught, paid the lobbyist back so it didn’t really happen, did it? Are you supporting what Bill Owens says or what Bill Owens does? I could go on and on with this list, but I’m not supporting any of the Bill Owens’ listed above, he can’t be trusted. Ron Jackson Essex County Republican Committee Chairman

Is slaughterhouse a good idea?

Agrees with editorial

To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti: Thank you for the editorial “APA: Use common sense to classify Boreas Ponds.” As the stonemason who built the fireplace in the Main Lodge I too, favor retention of the building and infrastructure. This was a well maintained working forest with a network of roads that could support the heavy trucks and equipment that’s required in forestry. When I went to work there I sometimes used the Gulf Brook Road and sometimes came in to Boreas Ponds From the Tahawus Club. Either trip was about seven miles from pavement and used to require unlocking and relocking two separate gates miles apart. My decades as a stonemason in the Adirondacks have taken me to many very beautiful and some very exclusive places. The lodge at Boreas Ponds is certainly one of the most beautiful locations I’ve seen. The idea of it being less exclusive is appealing to me. I was allowed some artistic license on the job and when I saw the view from the porch on the opposite side of the fireplace I was compelled to build in a bench from which you get a marvelous view of Sawteeth and other high peaks. The view from the top of the chimney is indescribable. What a lovely place! When you wrote about the possibility that “…a disabled veteran who fought for this country will not be afforded the same luxury as was given to the governor.” I thought about those veterans and where we sent them and what they endured and still endure. I really want them to be able to enjoy Boreas Ponds. Kent Gregson Indian Lake

Debauchery arrives To the Times of Ti: It’s been awhile since letters were exchanged regarding the Boy Scouts refusal to permit homosexual men into its ranks. I fully support Gusher Smith’s contention that homosexual men should be disqualified from serving as scout leaders. My support is not solely based on Mr. Smith’s opinion, but also founded on God’s authority that homosexuality is a disgrace in his eyes. Two other writers shared a different interpretation. One woman wrote, “Isn’t a homosexual an American, too?’ Allow me to rephrase that question: Can an American be a liar, too? Can an American be a thief, too? Yes, of course. Should these sins against God and man get preferential treatment, too. The one word answer is no! The television industry is a huge promoter of this destructive lifestyle. Every season more gay characters are introduced and everything is made to seem normal with no consequences. They purposely use sexual innuendos and keep pushing the envelope. I venture to say that debauchery has come to town. For example, elementary and middle schools in Saranac Lake, Ausable Valley, Corinth, Ballston Spa and Watervliet will hold a tolerance day later this month. It’s further proof that activists intend to target and indoctrinate young, impressionable minds. Parents, please heed the warning: they are coming for your children. John P. Sharkey Ticonderoga

Let me start by saying that I eat meat and I know where it comes from. What I don’t understand is why the town of Ticonderoga thinks that a slaughterhouse is appropriate in a town that wishes to be a tourist destination. We have a beautiful lake for boating and fishing, lovely scenery and the amazing Fort Ticonderoga. We have homeowners on the lake who pay a great deal of taxes to keep the schools and services going in a place where they don’t even use these services. So how is a slaughterhouse going to improve the situation of trying to draw more people and more tourist dollars to the area? Just wondering. Mary Lou Monda Ticonderoga

Applaud, not scold To the Times of Ti: I do not always agree with the DEC. This time, however, instead of scolding, these outraged people should be applauding the compassion of these men. They tried to do all in their power to aid and help “the Ausable Moose.” The animal had come to roost on a tiny bit of high ground. It was not a place this magnificent animal would have chosen, if he was well or unharmed. Why? He could not move to the water, where he could browse on the water plants and drink his fill. Why? He was too ill, or lame to do so. Some motorist had hit him, no doubt or caused him to bolt and hurt himself, or he was chased by someone on an off-road vehicle or shot at, or had the wasting disease that melts an animal’s life away. There was a reason this animal did not stand and charge folks, but instead turned his back so all those curious people would not see his tears as he faced his demise. Calmly and quietly as animals do, when death is near. That he stood in one place, for all those days, should be enough to say how very infirm he really was. No, this time I feel the DEC came to a wise and human solution, one not made lightly, for to destroy any animal, is not what one wishes to do. I am also sure the person who pulled that trigger will carry that event in his heart for a long time. It was a deed done out of kindness, not malice. A few weeks ago, my grandchildren spied a tightly tapped box beside the road. It was one of those over 90 degree day. How long it had been there in the bright sun? With curiosity of children, they stopped and looked inside. There was a tiny beautiful puppy who had cried so much he could not make a sound. It was so hot he was nearly cooked. Now you tell me how any person could do that to a baby? Any baby, human or animal. And it is done all the time. The animal shelter was only up the road. Now at least this puppy has a home. I have wept many tears over the beautiful moose, whose life was cut short, not by the DEC but by his own facing of death and his bravery. I also cry for a puppy that some very selfish and cruel person felt did not deserve to live. We all need to look carefully at all the creatures around us and do our utmost to grant a safe and loving environment to live. We need to care and truly understand that there are times we need to out of love, not anger. Patty Francisco, Tupper Lake

Last year the Knights of Columbus and Fort View Inn deadlocked for first place. “Last year we were fortunate enough to raise $1,000, with the help of John Bartlett, for the Ti Food pantry,” said Rollin Slattery of the Knights. “We had about 80 people. I’m expecting 100 or more this year. It was a lot of fun.” Following this year ’s “Wing War” the Knights will serve complimentary wings to anyone who may still be hungry. The K of C bar will be open and big screen televisions will be showing college football games. “It should be a lot of fun and it’s all for a great cause,” Slattery said. “With the holiday season and cold weather approaching the food pantry needs all the help we can provide. “Anytime we can help the food pantry it’s a good thing,” he said. “The food pantry provides a must-needed service to the community and I’m glad we can help out.” Slattery said the event has proven such a success the Knights of Columbus plan on making it an annual contest each October.

Local students led synthetic drug campaign State ban followed area effort By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — The sale of synthetic marijuana products has been banned in New York State. That’s something Doug Terbeek takes great pride in. “Our kids really played a major role in that,” said Terbeek, executive director of the Substance Abuse Prevention Team of Essex County. “We led the way on that issue.” Last March the state health department imposed a ban to halt the sale of synthetic marijuana, which officials say is highly addictive and poses a severe health hazard. That action followed a campaign by area high school students, with assistance from the Prevention Team, to raise awareness of the dangers associated with synthetic marijuana, also known as K2, Spice, Kush, Paradise, Demon, Voodoo, Bayou Blaster and others titles. The products consist of plant material that has been laced with chemical substances that claim to mimic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive active ingredient in marijuana, according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy. “Some kids from E-town (Elizabethtown) initially had some terrible reactions and got really scared,” said Mac MacDevitt, Prevention Team community-based prevention coordinator. “They realized this stuff is poison. The kids were scared and angry that the stuff was being sold.” Prevention Team educator Dave Wyant is still amazed how something that started as a small discussion between a couple of students at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School could turn into a state-wide movement. “I was really amazed at how quickly it went,” Wyant said. “This started out as a small group of students and the kids really jumped on it.” Wyant said students had seen the affects of synthetic marijuana on peers. “They all had friends that were affected by it and it really impacted them,” Wyant said. “I am still not sure that they realize just how much was accomplished in the county and in the state through them.” Students became passionate about their cause, Wyant said. “I had a cousin that passed away after smoking synthetic pot and I have seen a lot of friends get really sick,” Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School senior Hannah Bender said. “It was amazing and I wanted to know what we could do to make sure that this stuff was illegal to buy. It was too easy to get and too dangerous.” Bender said she approached Wyant at school to ask what the students could do. Eventually, they started a petition to send to government officials asking for the ban and were joined by schools throughout the county. “I thought it was awesome,” Bender said. “Once everyone joined in, we had a stack of petitions like a novel. It was extraordinary that this happened.” Bender and others joined with students from area schools and adults, like Erin Burdo of the Elizabethtown Social Center and Karen Crowingshield and Grant Martin of Elizabethtown Community Hospital, to seek a ban on the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana. They held a petition drive, a rally and contacted state representatives. “It’s a real success story,” MacDevitt said. “Our kids allied with adults and moved the state to action. There were folks in other areas of the state with concerns, but it seems like Essex County raised the alarm and really made a differ-

ence. “As a public health issue, the kids themselves saw it as a danger,” he added. “The kids led the fight and others in the community got involved. Because of all the attention most stores in the area stopped selling it before the (state) ban.” Wyant said that along with helping to promote the government ban on synthetic pot, the students also saw that their voice had an impact. “This is a teachable moment, for sure,” he said. “I am really proud of them.” MacDevitt said evidence shows the ban is working. “The reported number of adverse reactions has slowed to a trickle,” he said. “The Elizabethtown hospital hasn’t seen anyone in two months.” Use of the synthetic marijuana can cause agitation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, rapid heart beat, elevated blood pressure, tremors, seizures, hallucinations and paranoid behavior, according to Office of National Drug Control Policy. The Prevention Team is a non-profit agency providing education and prevention services for Essex County. It has educators and counselors in Elizabethtown-Lewis, Crown Point, Ticonderoga, Moriah, Minerva, Newcomb, Westport, Willsboro and Lake Placid schools. October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. The Prevention Team has no special events planned for National Substance Abuse Prevention Month, although it will observe Above the Influence Day on Oct. 18 and Red Ribbon Week Oct. 23-31. Red Ribbon Week honors the memory of Enrique (Kiki) Camarena, a federal agent killed by Mexican drug dealers in 1985.

Hague Oktoberfest deemed a success More than 1,000 people attend By Fred Herbst HAGUE — The Hague Oktoberfest was a hit, according to organizers. “Once again the Hague Oktoberfest event was very successful,” said Graham Bailey, event chairman. “The Hague Oktoberfest committee would like to thank everyone in our community for their support of the fourth annual Hague Oktoberfest weekend.” The Oktoberfest committee includes Bailey, Jack Bast, Carolyn Close, Dick Gladu, Tom Haskell, Linda Mury, Rudy Meola, Carol Pittman, Steve Ramant, Neil Rypkima and Donna Wotton. Held Sept. 21-23, the event attracted more than 1,000 people from 15 states and Canada. There were 24 New York counties represented. Friday featured the Calamity Rock band entertaining more than 250 people under the tents while they enjoyed food, Adirondack Brewery beers and dancing. Nearly 900 people attended Saturday for food, beer, games and music from Fritz's Polka Band followed by Peter McGee on the accordion. The weekend concluded with about 35 people attending the lakeside non-denominational service given by the Rev. Bruce Tamlyn on Sunday morning.

Rick Meyers of Hague won the key toss and Catherine O’Leary of Hague was named Miss Oktoberfest. Friday's 50/50 raffle was won by Dave Mertz of Paxinos, Pa. Saturday's 50/50 raffle was won by Marijke Masquelier of Hague. “The Oktoberfest committee extends their special thanks to the 100-plus volunteers that make this Oktoberfest possible,” Bailey said. “Without their support in every aspect of the event from parking and park entry, to the children’s tent, to beer sales and clean up, this event would not be possible. A special thanks to the Fish and Game Club who kept the beer flowing on Friday and Saturday. Thanks also to the craft and food vendors for their participation. “The committee is especially grateful for the support of the local business community and their sponsorship that funds this event,” he added. Oktoberfest sponsors included the town of Hague, the Hague Chamber of Commerce, the Sno-Goers, Kiwanis Club of Ticonderoga, Alison Craig Realty, Ananda Yoga, Belden Property Services, David Dunn Construction, Dockside Landing, Firehouse Restaurant, Glens Falls National Bank, Green Acres Campground, Hague Creek Gallery, Hague General Store, Hague Motel, International Paper, Lake George Lettering, Lakeside Plumbing, Locust Inn, North Country Landscaping, Northbrook

Teen relationship workshop held at county fairgrounds By Keith Lobdell WESTPORT — High school students from Westport, Crown Point and Moriah had the chance to talk and learn about peer relationships at the Essex County Fairgrounds recently. The Prevention Team of Essex County held a day of workshops on relationships and peer interaction at the fairgrounds, with Champlain Valley Educational Services Risk Management Specialist Jeff Sisson leading a discussion on bullying. “The biggest thing we wanted to do is define what bullying is so we can look at the issue with that understanding,” Sisson, who also gave the opening address to students, said. “One of the biggest challenges when dealing with bullying is that people throw the word out all of the time and we need to start using the word appropriately.” Sisson said that the key factor in bullying is the repeated nature of the action used by the bully to cause harm — mental or physical — to their victim.

Sisson also explained that looking at just the bully or the victim will not fully solve the problem. “We need to focus on the bystanders as well,” he said. “That is huge because you cannot change a culture by just focusing on the two people that may be directly involved in the act of bullying. It’s everybody in the school that is part of this. When you have everyone in the district working together, that is the key.” Prevention educator Angie MacAlpine of Ticonderoga said the event was held to allow students the chance to talk about relationships in a less formal setting. “They do not have that time to talk about relationships at school,” MacAlpine said. “They get a chance to talk about how they see each other being treated not only in school but throughout the community.” MacAlpine said that the students were also allowed to be open about topics that they may not otherwise talk about in a school setting. “Sometimes you need to be able to have that time where they can talk and we can not just hear but listen to what they are saying,” she said.

Moriah from page 1 town meet a state mandate and giving the community an updated structure. New York State had mandated court expansion in Moriah since 2008. The town had plans to erect its own modular building to house its court and police department adjacent to the town hall at Park Place in Port Henry. That project was shelved when the cost soared. Town trustees then considered several shortterm solutions to the court situation, before deciding to ask CV Tech to construct an addition. Sunukjian and others on the tour praised Moriah Justice Brian Venne for his leadership throughout the project. “This is an outstanding example of a local government — supervisor, town board and justice — working together to find available resources to meet a local need,” State Sen. Betty Little said. “Reaching out to CV-Tech was looking outsidethe-box. That kind of thinking led to something better with less expense. I’m proud of what’s been done here.” The expanded and renovated court, which

opened last year, is a welcome addition, Venne said. He noted the old space was cramped and attorneys often were forced to meet with clients outside the building. The Moriah court is the third most busy in Essex County, Venne noted, handling about 60 cases each session. “This was a real community project and I’m grateful to the Office of Court Administration for its assistance,” Venne said. “We now have a true hall of justice that provides the proper decorum for a court. I’m very proud of this court.” Kristy Sprague, Essex County district attorney, agreed. “It’s nice to have such a professional setting,” she said of the court. “It’s a privilege to practice in this court.” Scozzafava pointed out the new court is also serving as a meeting room for the town board. “It’s a great facility and it’s getting a lot of use,” the supervisor said. Venne hopes to secure future JCAP grant funding to construct a jury room in the basement of the court building, add air conditioning, replace doors and get new windows. “We have this wonderful facility,” he said. “Now I want to make it even better.”

How to Choose the Right Tire by: Ronald Baker There are a lot of things on your car that need to be regularly checked and replaced, but none may be more important than your tires. As your anchor to the road, your tires need to be in top condition for what ever driving situation you find yourself in. Before you walk into a Marengo tire store, here are a few things you need to keep in mind. When purchasing tires, it is important to make sure that all the tires on your car are the same or at least very close to the same. This is most easily done when buying all four tires at once. But lets say you need to change just one or two tires because they were damaged. You just have

to makes sure that you try and d buy the same brand, size, type, and speed rating. Even if this tire is a little more expensive than others, yourr safety is worth it. The next thing you need to know when buying tires is whatt kind of conditions you will be driving your car in. Foxlake, IL tires are going to be different than San Diego, CA tires. In Illinois, there is a lot of snow in the winter and lots of rain throughout the spring and summer. Because of this, someone’s Foxlake, IL tires are going to need to be the best

tire driving i for the h worst d i i conditions you will face. This might mean buying two sets of tires, one for the summer and one for the winter. This way, you will always have the right tire for your situation. For places with milder climates, you may be able to get away with just one, all-season tire.

But you have to considh id er your normal driving habits as well. If your furthest driving distance is to the local shopping center, you can choose just about any tire. If you spend a lot of time in rush hour traffic, you’ll be better off getting more responsive tires. For regular long highway trips, you’ll need

some smooth, quiet, long lasting tires. And it comes to no surprise that you’ll p want tires with great handling if you frequently find yourself on a winding mountain road. One of the last things you need to think about is your tire’s speed rating. This is an important number to pay attention to because it can save you money if you know what to look for. Lets say you’re at your local Marengo tire store and you think you’ve picked out the prefect tire. What’s the speed rating on that tire? If it is any higher than 150MPH then you’re

paying too much for a tire that you’ll never fully use. When are you ever going to be driving faster than 150MPH? If you knock down your tire’s speed rating to 130MPH, you’ll also knock down it’s price. Most high performance tires come with a higher speed rating, even though you’ll never use it, so just know what you’re actually paying for. And be cautious. Most tires with a high speed rating have softer rubber and don’t last as long. Common tire speed ratings: Q= 99 mph S= 112 mph T= 118 mph U= 124 mph H= 130 mph V= up to 149 mph Z= 149 mph and above W= 168 mph Y= 186 mph

Help Your Car Withstand Harsh Winter Weather • Check the vehicle’s charging system. Car batteries are forced to work harder in cold weather, making it easier for a battery to die when the mercury drops. To avoid being stranded in the cold, ask your mechanic to check the vehicle’s charging system before the onset of winter to ensure the battery is ready for the cold months ahead. • Don’t tread lightly. Tire treads are especially important during the colder months, when icy or snow-packed roads make driving a dangerous undertaking. Tires with adequate traction are better equipped to handle roads that might be covered in ice, dirt or grime from sand and salt trucks. Check tire pressure regularly, especially when the temperatures are colder, and always inflate tires to the manufacturer-recommended PSI. PSI ratings can often be found on the driver’s side door. • Monitor motor oil. An engine is only as good as the motor oil

Don’t Fall Into Winter Without A Tune-Up On Your Auto Policy!

• Maintain visibility. Visibility is especially poor during the winter months when falling snow and dirt and grime are kicked up from the rear tires of other vehicles, making it difficult to see. To maintain adequate visibility throughout the winter, inspect wiper blades to make sure they are in peak condition. Be sure the blade fully clears the windshield of snow, rain and any other debris that

might find its way into your driving line of vision. Never leave the house without enough windshield washer fluid in the reservoir, and keep an extra bottle of fluid in the trunk just to be safe.

that keeps it lubricated. Poor lubrication results in friction between engine components, ultimately leading to wear and potentially taking years off engine life. Drivers should regularly monitor their motor oil levels and adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines. When choosing a lubricant, look for a synthetic motor oil to maintain engine protection and performance. Synthetic motor oils provide significant benefits over their conventional counterparts, particularly in colder weather when conventional motor oil thickens as the temperature drops. When the mercury starts to sink, conventional motor oils can slow starting rpm, restrict oil flow to critical engine parts and increase wear on bearings and rings. Conversely, synthetic motor oils still flow or pump at temperatures as much as 50 below zero, allowing cars and trucks to start with greater ease.

people from winter weather, antifreeze protects vehicles when the weather outside is frightful. Not every antifreeze is created equal, and inadequate antifreeze can cause water pump failure and even a cracked engine block. Drivers often fail to monitor their antifreeze levels throughout the winter, which can hurt their cars and might even be harmful to the environment. Traditional ethylene glycol, or EG, antifreezes have a sweet smell and taste that attracts animals and, if ingested, can harm local wildlife or even household pets. Propylene glycol antifreeze does not boast a sweet smell or taste, and though safe if ingested, reduces the likelihood that animals will be drawn to it. AMSOIL Propylene Glycol Antifreeze is compatible with all other antifreeze products and does not require a complete system flush before usage, easing the transition from EG • Address your antifreeze. antifreeze to a more eco-friendMuch like a winter coat protects ly alternative. (MS) -- Automobiles can be very resilient. Drivers typically don’t treat their cars with kid gloves, but most cars keep chugging along in spite of it. Of course, drivers who treat their cars well can expect to get as much in return from their vehicles. That’s especially true when winter weather arrives, which is the harshest season vehicles must endure every year. Harsh weather coupled with less-than-ideal roadways typically take their toll on a vehicle as the season progresses, and it’s up to drivers to help their cars withstand the elements of winter and make it to spring in drivable condition. Short of moving to a locale that’s warm and sunny 12 months a year, there’s little drivers can do to avoid winter weather; however, there are several ways drivers can prepare their vehicles for the months ahead.

Maintenance Applies To Your Vehicle’s Interior, Too

(MS) -- Recent studies have estimated that many Americans spend as much as three hours a day in their cars. Over the course of a typical week, that’s almost one entire day behind the wheel. That not only translates to lots of face time with your vehicle’s interior, but it also provides ample opportunities for the buildup of dirt, grime, coffee, and food stains that can leave a car’s interior appearing haggard and worn. In addition to robbing a car’s interior of its aesthetic appeal, the buildup of dirt and grease can also cause the vehicle to degrade over time. Though it’s common to associate vehicle maintenance with what’s under the hood, drivers should also make maintenance a priority for the vehicle’s interior. When cleaning a car’s interior, address each and every nook and cranny. Consoles & Cup Holders Perhaps no part of a vehicle’s interior is more susceptible to dirt and grease buildup than the center console, which is typically home to a vehicle’s cup holders. Spilled coffee or soda is something

every driver can relate to, and cleaning such spills is harder than it sounds. No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse from Permatex, a leading innovator of auto maintenance, repair, and appearance products, is specially formulated to remove not only stubborn stains, but also older ones, making it ideal for taking care of that long-ignored yet unsightly residue at the bottom of your cupholder. Clean Under the Carpets Particularly after a long winter, a vehicle’s carpets can be a major eyesore. Remove the floor mats and thoroughly vacuum any dirt buildup that might have multiplied with each winter snowstorm or spring shower. Your carpets will look better and last longer. Dashboards & Door Panels In order to drive a vehicle, motorists must look out over the dashboard. Despite that, dashboards are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning a car’s interior. No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse is formulated to remove unsightly dirt or grease buildup from all interior surfaces, including plastic, rubber, vinyl,

No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse also has an anti-static repellant, which helps keep the instrument panel free and clear of dust for safer and easier navigation.

For drivers trapped inside a car with its own distinct odor, No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse has a new car scent that ensures both driver and passenger won’t be stuck holding their noses on those long commutes to work.

and leather, while drying to a satin sheen to minimize dashboard reflection on the windshield. What’s unique about No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse is that it applies as a mousse, meaning there won’t be any of the messy overspray and seepage into components and vents that drivers typically worry about when cleaning the dashboard and door panels. Address the Upholstery When buying a new car, many auto buyers are concerned about the car’s potential resale value. That’s a genuine concern, as resale value is often influenced by more than just the number of miles on the odometer. Dirty upholstery is an instant turnoff for most used car buyers, so drivers should be diligent and clean their upholstery regularly, including immediately after any spills. Be careful when using water to clean the upholstery, as you don’t want any water getting into places that can damamge electrical components or create a moldy smell. Practice Preventive Care Much like humans, a car is susceptible to UV rays. Whereas a human would apply sunscreen to his or her skin to protect against sunburn, drivers can apply a UV-protectant product to their vehicle’s interior to guard against problems that often result from overexposure to the sun. No Touch(R) Interior Detailing Mousse is specially formulated to protect a vehicle against UV rays that typically lead to fading, cracking, and aging. What’s more, its non-greasy for-

Crown Point school recognized School of Distinction award presented By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — Crown Point Central School has been named a School of Distinction by the College For Every Student program for a third straight year, but don’t expect the Panthers to become complacent. “I want to thank the CFES leadership team, our students and our faculty for making this a reality, but we can’t stop now,” Agatha Mace, interim principal, said during an awards ceremony. “Let’s go for four.” That was the battle cry as a banner was presented to the school at an assembly. “CFES has only given the School of Distinction award the past three years,” teacher Shane Thelen told students. “Crown Point has gone three-for-three. I hope we can go four-for-four. We’re a great school.” Ticonderoga Middle School also received the award. College For Every Student, a national non-profit that helps under-served students get to college, granted the award to 20 schools nationwide for their success in meeting goals dur-

ing the 2011-12 academic year. The award is given for success in CFES’s primary programs — mentoring, bullying prevention, college campus visitation, college exploration and leadership. “It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate the School of Distinction award,” Andrea McDonald, guidance counselor, said. “We did this as a team. No one person made this happen. No one person makes anything happen.” Teacher Crystal Farrell agreed. “It takes all of us working together to reach our goals,” she said. “This is an example of how hard work is rewarded. Being a CFES School of Distinction is something we can all be proud of and celebrate.” Tara Lambert, CFES program director, said her organization has worked with Crown Point for 12 years. It’s been a successful relationship, she noted. “Achieving School of Distinction is testimony to all that has been accomplished at Crown Point Central School,” she told students. “On behalf of CFES I congratulate you.” The CFES program has been a great benefit to Crown Point students, according to senior Drew Malone. “CFES has really helped me prepare for college,” he said. “I feel like I’m ready to move on in life.”

Schroon Lions plan annual event Prime rib dinner Oct. 20 By Fred Herbst SCHROON LAKE — A community tradition will again help the Town of Schroon Lions Club provide charitable services. The Lions annual prime rib dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 20, at Witherbee’s Carriage House Restaurant, Route 9 in Schroon Lake. Guests will be seated continually as tables arrive, beginning at 5 p.m. until approximately 8 p.m. Lions suggest wait times may be shorter during the later half of the evening. “The Lions Club is a total service group, with 100 percent of all proceeds going back into our Schroon Lake community projects,” Lion Patti Mehm said. “Please join us on Oct.

20 as we serve you and together we can help the community with all dinner proceeds supporting the holiday food basket program, as well as providing scholarships to our local students and Lifelines to our elderly.” The dinner will include salad, rolls and butter, prime rib, green beans, homemade mashed potatoes and a dessert. The donation for advanced ticket purchases is $20 and $22 at the door. Gratuity is included in the price. Tickets can be obtained from any Schroon Lake Lions Club member, at Friedman Realty and at The Towne Store. People can also call club secretary Bette Manley at 532-7577 for advance tickets. “The community’s support is greatly appreciated and necessary for its success,” Mehm said. “We hope to ‘serve’ many of our neighbors again this year. The Lions Club motto is ‘We Serve’ and the club members enjoy this opportunity once a year to do just that.”

Tickets for the Schroon Lake Lions Club Ice Out event will also be available during the prime rib dinner event. Lions support many projects in the Schroon Lake community. The Lions help provide eyeglasses, hearing aids and lifelines; offer college and camp scholarships; provide transportation for cancer patients for treatments; provide holiday food baskets and emergency funds to the needy; support local troops in Iraq and Afghanistan; and donate funds to local events such as the Fourth of July parade and library reading program. The Town of Schroon Lions Club meets the third Monday of each month at Decesare’s Pizza at 6:30 p.m. The meetings are open to the public. Anyone planning to attend for dinner should call 532-7577.

Donations have been turned over to area schools for distribution to students. Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution focused on serving members’ financial needs and supporting the community.

The scale of change


othing in nature remains static for very long, and this time of year the most obvious example of this is the gradual emergence of fall foliage. Autumn is the ultimate seasonal segue, a bridge between extremes, and it is upon us. Everything in the forest is preparing for the big freeze, which has already started to descend upon areas in the Adirondacks and will soon be working its way into the Champlain Valley. The onset of winter, the result of the tilt of the Earth and its position in orbit, is a major change indeed, and the bold pallette of colors accenting our mountains and valleys is a local response to that planetary positioning. In the fall, as plants stop making chlorophyll, the pigment that gives leaves their green color and enables them to perform photosynthesis, other pigments begin to emerge. In trees like birches, elms and poplars, those pigments are called carotene and xanthophyll, and they are responsible for autumn yellows and oranges. Red autumn leaves, commonly found on maples, staghorn sumacs and red-osier dogwoods, are the result of anthocyanins. These pigments are produced in the leaf cells and cause leaves to turn bright red if the cell sap is acidic and purple if the cell sap is alkaline. When red and yellow pigments are both present, the leaves appear orange, as is oftentimes seen on maple leaves. Yes, the smell of dying deciduous leaves means change is in the air, but in the mountains, change is always in the air, and in some places its mark is literally etched into the mountainsides. Last August, Tropical Storm Irene wreaked havoc on the region, and reminded us of just how fast change can occur here, and how intense that change can be. After the flood waters subsided and towns and villages began rebuilding, it was estimated that about 28 new landslides had ripped paths into the High Peaks.

End of the season


esterday, I awoke to discover remnants of the season’s first snow covering my back porch. Although it was the first dusting of autumn, it is a harbinger of what is sure to come. My weekend was spent on the water, fishing for salmon on the Boquet near Willsboro, and later, chasing brook trout on the backwoods ponds. The river didn’t treat me too well! I never even saw a fish in the pool below Willsboro Falls, and the salmon ladder wasn’t attracting many visitors either. Needless to say, the salmon fishing didn’t last very long, since there were so many other autumn attractions that required my attention. Although we had a brief bit of snow, and the evening’s frost is on the ground as I write these words, I still look forward to revisiting the fall foliage on my next trip to the valley’s below. In the High Peaks region, as well as the Saranac’s, the peak of foliage is two weeks past. The season has moved into the duller, mellow yellow stage of autumn, and leaves are falling faster than a hungry trout. However, there are still some isolated pockets of brilliant foliage to discover in the valleys. Fortunately, it was hungry trout that I discovered while fishing the on the remote ponds, and in the course of two days of backwoods angling adventures, we lost count of all the brook trout that were caught and released. They were strong, aggressive males roving the small bays while looking for love in all the wrong places. They fell readily for a wide collection of flies, lies and lures that we sent in their direction. On one particularly active pond, my fishing partner sifted through his tackle box in efforts to discover a lure that wouldn’t attract a fish. He failed miserably. The big buck brookies were so incredibly aggressive; I think they would have hit a shoe if it were tossed overboard. We spent a full afternoon entertained by these large pods of aggressive male brookies, and only the attendant foliage matched the brilliance of their spawn colors. On occasion, as our laughter echoed back from the surrounding forests, a lone loon would chortle back, as if in reply. My belly ached more from laughter, than my arms did from hauling in fish. It proved a spectacular finish to a fishing season that has been for the most part, rather dismal due to low water levels, warmer water temperatures, extreme water clarity and greatly diminished oxygen levels. However, despite such inhospitable angling conditions, it is helps to remember that a single day on the water is always better than five days behind a desk, regardless of the take.

Residents of Keene and Keene Valley later described that terrifying night—the constant sound of pouring rain did little to muffle the noise of boulders, breaking trees and earth as it crashed thousands of feet into the valleys below, damming up waterways and exposing acres of bedrock in its wake. From the top of Big Slide mountain there is a panorama containing a few of the new slide tracks along the Upper Great Range. They are easy to spot because they are bright white instead of the dark gray of their older neighbors. Other mountains also bear scars from Irene. Leaving the Adirondack Loj, there is a slide just before Avalanche Pass whose base is easily approachable, and the cascade waterfall on Cascade Mountain, which was previously hidden by vegetation, can now be clearly seen from Rt. 73, just south of Lake Placid, as a result of a landslide on that mountain. The landscape’s new look has given a that-wasn’t-therebefore edge to some of this year ’s hikes, but it has also provided a reality check. The fall foliage, that gentle and predictable seasonal change, provides the starkest contrast against the evidence of an event whose force stripped the landscape of an overwhelming volume of vegetation and boulders and soil without warning last year. There is something here to be said about respect and humility, and perhaps a question as to why anyone would want to live in such a place. The truth is, it’s hard to turn your back on something you love. Sometimes change can be devastating, but, as autumn reminds us, it can also be good.

Warm, comfortable and patient

In an ongoing effort to educate hunters, and bring more novices into the game, I have been soliciting advice from a wide pool of veteran hunters and outdoorsmen. Deer hunting is a traditional activity that most participants learn in a traditional style. Commonly, it is learned through a process of observation and participation, often while in the company of a father or a relative. The act of hunting serves to connect participants to the natural food chain, and it shows us where meat actually comes from. Often it serves to satisfy a predatory instinct, an inner need that lingers in our soul. As most hunters know all too well, taking the shot is possibly the easiest part of the entire equation. After the shot, is when the real work begins. First you must to find the deer, which is not always as easy as it would appear. Following a blood trail can range from difficult to impossible especially in the rain, or at dusk while in the thick woods, or a deep, dark swamp. However, it is much easier with snow in the ground Once the dead deer is found, the real work begins. The first step is to complete the deer tag, which is typically compounded by the lack of a pen. Hunters will carry a fully loaded pack with enough gear to last a month in the woods, but they always seem to forget to add a single ballpoint pen into the pile. A deer must be field dressed, which is sort of like cleaning a trout only with warm blood, larger organs and a lot more odors combined with it. I doubt anyone actually enjoys the process of dressing out a deer, which can be a rather revolting experience, but it teaches us where meat comes from. The process of dressing out a deer provides participants with a greater appreciation for the food chain. After the deer is dressed, it still must be dragged out, cleaned, hung up to age, skinned, quartered, carved, wrapped, labeled and finally frozen. I learned my first lesson in this regard, at the age of ten, while accompanying a friend on a hunting trip near North Creek. We were on a ridge, high above OK Slip Pond when his father shot at a deer. I watched it fall, and instantly, I was down the hill in great running leaps until his father ’s bark stopped me in my tracks. “Stop!” he commanded, “Sit down and don’t move until I tell you to!” he whispered between clenched teeth. My ears were ringing more from the scolding than from the shot, but it was valuable lesson learned. Although we only waited about twenty minutes, to me, it seemed like an eternity. But, I also learned how to be quiet and wait. Hunting is all about patience, which is a virtue that remains a rare commodity, among both youth and adults. A hunter must master patience, before he’ll ever master the hunt. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Sentinels and Vikings both victorious this week Ticonderoga and Moriah won in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference football action last weekend. The squads are both 3-3 on the season and deadlocked atop the Class D standings, although Ti holds the tiebreaker by virtue of its win against the Vikings earlier in the campaign.

Ticonderoga 34, Saranac 12 Mike Graney had a big game for the Sentinels as they beat Saranac, 34-12, Oct. 6. Graney threw for 123 yards and three touchdowns. Ti also controlled the line of scrimmage, running for 285 yards. Tanner Wright ground out 165 yards and Miles Austin added 109 as the Sentinels pushed Saranac up and down the field. Austin got the Sentinels on the board, scoring on a 40yard run in the opening quarter. His conversion run made it 8-0. Saranac moved with 8-6 at the intermission, before Graney went to work. Graney connected with Jarryn Granger on a 44-yard score and then with Anthony DuShane on a 32-yard TD as Ti extended its lead to 22-6. Wright closed out Ticonderoga’s third period barrage with an 81-yard TD run for a commanding 28-6 advantage. Saranac gained a measure of respectability with a TD in the fourth quarter, but Graney dashed any Chief comeback hopes when he passed 12 yards to Wright for Ti’s final touchdown. Ticonderoga’s line was dominate on both sides of the ball, limiting Saranac to a mere 53 yards rushing.
