IN CROWN POINT

fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — Facing declining enrollments, rising poverty rates and escalating property taxes, the Ticonderoga and Crown Point school districts will officially study a possible consolidation. The districts have been awarded a $45,000 state grant to hire a outside consultant to study the two schools. Once the study is complete, a series of votes will be required before any possible consolidation can take place. The earliest any consolidation can take place is July 2014. The school boards of both districts expressed interest in a study following a BOCES presentation on shared services in 2011. “Both Ticonderoga and Crown Point had representatives at that meeting,” John McDonald, Ti school superintendent, said. “That sparked our interest.

Veterans walk planned in Ti Tribute Nov. 4 at Mount Hope Cemetery By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga’s veterans will be honored with the sixth annual Veterans Memory Walk. Sponsored by the Ticonderoga Historical Society, town historian, Ticonderoga Cemetery Board and Ticonderoga, the First 250 Years Committee, the event will be held Sunday, Nov. 4, at 1 p.m. at Mount Hope Cemetery. Veterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. “Please join us for a guided memory walk as we honor the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for freedom,” said Bill Dolback, town historian. “We will pause at the gravesites of selected veterans, identify their military experience and pay tribute to them personally. “We invite everyone, including families of active military, veterans and families who have lost loved ones to join us,” he said. Mount Hope Cemetery sits at the site of a colonial log fort that guarded the mills at the lower falls on the La Chute River and the portage between Lake George and Lake Champlain. Dolback will further highlight the significance of the land in his presentation. “A British soldier, who fought at Mount Hope, by the name of John Stoughton, a recipient of one of the first three land grants bestowed by King George III in 1764, is known as the first settler,” stated June Curtis of the historical society. “It

is his settlement that marks the beginning of Ticonderoga’s first 250 years. Many activities are being planned to commemorate the quarter millennial culminating in a signature event in July of 2014.” Many of the veterans to be honored this year served in World War II and are attributed to be from the “Greatest Generation,” a term created by journalist Tom Brokaw, since they lived through the Great Depression, fought in World War II and then returned to rebuild America into a super power. “Please join us on this special day, the Sunday before Vet-

erans Day, as we gather at the Mount Hope Cemetery to honor those brave individuals who fought around the world for our freedoms,” Curtis said. “Although we cannot promise warm weather, we can assure a proud tribute and heartwarming experience. Please dress warmly.” Following the program refreshments will be served at the Hancock House in Ticonderoga. For additional information, contact the Ticonderoga Historical Society at tihistory@verizon.net or 585-7868.

Calendar sale to aid Ticonderoga celebration Students assisting with effort By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — As Ticonderoga residents look forward to the community’s 250th anniversary, they’ll be calling on history to help finance a sestercentennial celebration. The First 250 Year Committee is selling 2013 historical calendars. Proceeds from the sale will help pay for the group’s “signature event” during the 2014 celebration. “We’re still working on our signature event,” said Bob Dedrick, committee member. “We know it’ll involve a parade and fireworks, but we’re still working on the other details. We want it to be a really special event.” Ticonderoga was first settled in 1764 when King George III divided 6,000 acres of land around Fort Ticonderoga among three officers at the fortess. John Stoughton was the first to settle in Ti. His land grant is dated July 24, 1764. The committee, co-sponsored by the Ticonderoga Historical Society and the Ti Heritage Museum, has produced the calendar that looks at a particular part of local history each month from November 2012 through December 2013. November 2012, for example, has photos and information on Ticonderoga’s military service. Highlighted is Ti resident Lester Hack, who won the Congressional Medal of Honor for

his Civil War service April 2, 1865. December 2012 is a look back at community holidays with photos by famed local photographer Mason Smith. January 2013 looks at winter sports, February civic groups, March fire companies, April churches, May Fort Ticonderoga, June education, July celebrations, August lake transportation, September industry, October entertainment, November health care and December sports. Ticonderoga Middle School students are helping the First 250 Year Committee sell 2013 historical calendars. From left Steve Boyce and are Bob Dedrick of the committee, student Lucas Grinnell, student Sierra Stacy and teacher Kyle Lang. Rich Strum compiled the photos and hisThe calendars, priced at $10 each, are on sale at the Hantorical footnotes for the calendar, Dedrick said. cock House, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, Rathbun’s Jewelry and the Burleigh Luncheonette. Anyone wishing to buy a calendar can call Dedrick at 5857408. Calendars are also available from Ticonderoga Middle School students, who are selling them as a fund raising project to help support their annual whale watch trip. Students will get $2 for each calendar sold. The money, while welcome, is not the reason students are participating, explained teacher Kyle Lang. “It’s really a community service project,” Lang said. “The money is great, but we want our students involved in the community. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of an important celebration.” Students who sell the most calendars will be eligible for prizes. The top seller will get a Kindle Fire. The second best salesperson will receive a $100 gift card donated by Wal-Mart and the third a $50 gift card donated by Dunkin Donuts.

Church gets new name, leases Ti space fred@denpubs.com HAGUE — The Hague Wesleyan Church was 130 yards old. But, no more. The church has changed its name to the Lakeside Regional Church and is expanding its reach into Ticonderoga. “Over the past seven or eight years we’ve attracted a growing number of people from Westport to the north to Silver Bay to the south,” explained the Rev. Skip Trembley, senior pastor. “We’ve grown quite a bit and decided we need a name that reflects our membership.” Besides the name change, the congregation is now leasing the former Northwoods Wellness building on Montcalm Street in Ticonderoga. That location will serve as the church’s administrative offices — for now. “Our (Hague) building is quite small,” Trembley explained. “We’ve had to add a second service each Sunday to accommodate everyone who wants to attend. “Also, some people are finding it hard to travel so far for services,” the pastor said. “From Westport it’s about a 50minute trip (to Hague). From Port Henry, where I live, it’s about 35-40 minutes. That’s a long drive, especially in the winter. Eventually, I think we’ll have services in Ticonderoga. It’s more centrally located for our members.”

Services are now held each Sunday at 9 and 11 a.m. at the Hague church at 9803 Graphite Mountain Road. Trembley said his church averages about 200 people each week for services. “It’s all good news,” he said. “We’re growing.” The Ticonderoga location will also be used for parenting classes, leadership training, out-reach group meetings and other events, Trembley said. “The location and space will allow us to do more,” he said. Trembley, credentialed since 1976 with the Assemblies of God, began working with the Hague Wesleyan Church in 2001 when invited by then-Pastor Rusty Bissell to hold an early morning contemporary service. He has been on loan from the Assemblies of God since 2005. He has served as senior pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor, men’s ministry director and conference director. In the last few years the Hague Wesleyan Church has become more actively involved in missions. Church members have built three churches in Haiti and sent individuals or teams to Sierra Leon, Jamaica, China, Africa and the Dominican Republic. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Hague church members made 18 trips to Mississippi in to assist in rebuilding homes. The trips included more than 120 different people and involved several churches.

STOP THE TORTURE: BOYCOTT VEAL The Humane Farming Association (HFA) has achieved an unprecedented drop in the sale of farm raised veal! But we can’t let up now! Here’s why: • Veal calves are chained or confined for life in small wooden crates barely larger than their own bodies. • They cannot walk or even turn around. • Veal calves are deliberately kept anemic in order to obtain the light colored meat sold as “milk-fed” veal. • Denied all solid food, they suffer chronic diarrhea. • Veal calves are deprived of drinking water, suffering from chronic thirst. • They gain weight by drinking more of their drug laced liquid feed in a futile attempt to quench their thirst.

This year, literally hundreds of thousands of baby calves will suffer each day of their lives. They’ll grown up chained in wooden boxes – choking on ammonia fumes from their own accumulated waste. So weak that many will collapse taking the first steps of their lives – from their “veal crates” to the trucks that will take them to slaughter. And this year, millions of Americans will eat veal, unknowingly consuming the pale tainted flesh of these sick tortured animals. Please help us end their suffering! We call animals stupid and so they are because they can not speak, but just because they have no words does not mean they are not suffering. Please help! Thank you! 22637

Think beyond partisan politics Nov. 6

P

artisan politics are not only confusing and frustrating and apparently infinite, but they seem to defeat the purpose of meaningful change. And it appears, talking to many people around the North Country, policies and plans and specifics and ideas linked to outcomes matter little when it comes to that never-ending battle of Republican versus Democrat. Can President Obama turn the economy around, heal the nation and repair the many things the people point out are broken? Or would Romney be better suited for the job? It doesn’t appear it really matters and, if that is the case, do outcomes or change really mean anything? Individual campaign volunteers – Republican and Democrat – reported that while making calls for their respectable candidates, they were met with either, “Thanks for calling and I will definitely vote for -----,” or “I would rather die than vote ----.” But wait, isn’t it the individuals and his or her ideas that matter? If Romney were a Democrat would Republicans suddenly despise him and all he stands for? Would Obama be tossed to the curb with the trash by Democrats if he suddenly transformed into a Republican? Some might say no, and for some that is most definitely the truth. But for many, or so it seems from conversations, interviews and testimonials of operatives on both sides, the party decides the vote. If that is the case, then it would seem if Romney were elected and indeed turned the country around for everyone, Democrats would remain miserable. Likewise, if Obama is granted a second term and succeeds where many say he has failed, Republicans would be angry and unful-

filled. Then that would mean if Romney wins and fails and the state of affairs in the country deteriorates, Republicans would be thrilled still, because their Republican won. And Democrats, in the same situation, would be overjoyed too. Would both sides find ways to blame the other? History definitely indicates this. But shouldn’t it be more about who is going to get the job done and bring about results that empower the largest amount of Americans possible? Yes, each party, respectively, has ideals that voters belonging to those parties subscribe to and believe in, and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact, ideals are quite admirable. But blindly accepting or dismissing an individual according to party affiliation seems like it carries, at least a slight possibility of sabotaging what one in fact desires. Wouldn’t it behoove every voter to remain loyal to ideals but at the same time do some investigation, some real investigation that doesn’t include listening to propaganda, before making a final decision? Who knows which party can truly cure America’s ailments? But what seems evident is that while people might assume their party is faithfully representing them, knowledge is power and an uninformed choice at the polls could potentially create obstacles along the path to what we desire.

It’s time to get out and vote

D

uring the last week I had the privilege of sitting in with our Editorial Board as they interviewed candidates for contested seats for the New York State Assembly and U.S. Congress. During their campaigns candidates each travel thousands of miles, attend countless functions, shake far too many hands, kiss who knows how many babies and graciously perform many tasks to prove their sincerity to the folks who will decide their fate. Some have been rebuffed by constituents before but continue their quest to win the seat they seek. Every one of the candidates we sat down with was articulate, passionate and optimistic about the opportunity ahead of them to serve the people of their district. Each made a compelling argument for their candidacy. Each question presented was quickly answered, leaving me with just one lingering thought. What happens to these good people who want so badly to achieve the office and then all too often come up short in the eyes of the electorate once they reach their goal? No doubt most folks vote along party lines so each candidate will always have opposition who find fault with their every action. But frequently once in office the opportunity to distinguish themselves from their fellow representatives seems to fall short of the promises made. It’s a question I may never fully understand and perhaps it is just a part of the function of our democracy that each representative at the end of the day gets carved up by the two party system and all too often finds the deck stacked against them as they meld into government bureaucracy. At any rate this will be my last column before you go to the polls if you haven’t already voted for the candidates of your choice. As we explained to each of the candidates with whom we recently met, our role is not to endorse nor try to sway voters. Instead our focus is to provide information that allows them to make the choice they believe to be in the best interest of their country, state, county and town. Respecting the power of their individual vote, we believe it’s an abuse of the medium we control to attempt to tip the scales solely based on our beliefs, something I do believe has affected many major news out-

lets. Here are several things to consider before you stand before the ballot and make your choices. Dan Alexander 1. Can you trust the Thoughts from candidate to use their Behind the Pressline skills, talents and experiences to make wise choices, follow their convictions and be true to the promises they made on the campaign trail? 2. The campaign process is a competition marathon. Has your choice demonstrated the type of character and personal values that you feel will allow her/him to deal with the stress of the office, stand up against the pressure to cave in to the demands of a strong willed senior representative, political party members or overly influential lobbyists or contributors? 3. Is your decision based on your own research and knowledge of the candidate’s positions, actions and experience or have you been unduly swayed by slick, politically bias advertising that solely painted the other candidate in an unfavorable light, perhaps even misrepresenting their position altogether? 4. Will your candidate be capable of working across the political aisle to seek solutions to the problems that face our government or will she/he be an obstructionists who digs in their heels to anything proposed by the other side? 5. Will your candidate place country, state, county or town first before their own political ambition or their personal gain? Given the many issues facing our society it is extremely important that the choices we make during this election cycle be ones that cause positive improvement for the benefit of the population as a whole. We must put aside our own personal interest and look at the good of all as we cast the ballot that will set the course of government and the many lives affected by their actions for the next several years. May God bless and assist the men and women we place into these important offices. Please remember to vote Nov. 6. Dan Alexander is publisher and CEO of Denton Publications.

Letters to the Editor

Good news

CROP Walk a success

To the Times of Ti:

It’s a shame

To the Times of Ti:

I was so pleased to see that the repairs to the pipeline that spans the LaChute River that leads to the Ticonderoga wastewater treatment plant are going to be quite a bit less than initially expected. The town of Ticonderoga officials and Supervisor (Deb) Malaney should be commended for their efforts, along with the town engineers and professional consultants that found the problems on the trestle, developed a solution and provided a conservative construction estimate to make sure that there would be no hidden surprises. This approach should be taken with all infrastructure projects. Anthony W . DeFranco, PE, M.ASCE Hague

To the Times of Ti:

Thank you to everyone who walked or donated to the annual Ticonderoga Area CROP Walk. We are happy to report that $8,640 was raised to serve people locally, around the world and when disasters hit. This means $2,160 will be coming back to our local food pantries. We had a beautiful day to walk and show we care. It was great to see people of all ages walking together: families, grandparents with their grandchildren, students, singles and groups. Our multi-aged group joined 1,200 other CROP Walks around the country on that weekend. Americans from all walks of life walked to show how much they cared to help the hungry. Our committee is already planning for our 10th annual CROP Walk and we welcome everyone interested join us. Bob and Sue Johnson Hague

Will vote for Obama To the Times of Ti:

Elks thankful

John Sharkey’s letter of Saturday, Oct. 27, another newspaper was another full of misplaced facts! I will say he is correct in one point and that is about the growth rate being under 2 percent a year! According to most economists this is a good thing as a slow and steady economy is better than a runaway one that would produce inflation and certainly put us back where we were in 2008! Mr. Sharkey speaks of the national debt but doesn’t speak of how this debt came to be! He glosses over the part where former President Bush and the Republican Party turned a surplus into debt by starting two wars and voting on spending bills that would put us where we are now! While the president of Israel Shimon Peres lauds our president for his unwavering support Mr. Sharkey tries to make us believe our president has ignored Israel! The diatribe about the recent attack on our consulate in Libya is just so much fodder! I would ask Mr. Sharkey and others if they remember the attack in Lebanon in 1983 on our Marine barracks! Terrorists drove a truck into the barracks loaded with explosives killing 241 Marines! One has to wonder if those who feel President Obama is at fault for what happened in Libya blamed President Regan for the deaths of the 241 in Lebanon! What happened was unfortunate and it may happen again as there is no way to stop the actions of terrorists who are bent on killing! Ambassador Stevens and the others killed in the Libya attack were doing their job as were the 241 Marines in Lebanon! When put in harm’s way there is always a risk and those who die taking these risks are heroes! Using them to attack our president is a sham and those doing so are insulting their memory! Ambassador Stevens and the others could have cut and run but they chose to stay and try to make a difference! Mr. Sharkey and Rush Limbaugh are cut from the same cloth. Not liking our president is a right, but bringing falsehoods is a breach of the 10 Commandments! On Nov. 6 I will be voting to re-elect Barrack Obama, a Christian, as president of these United States! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

To the Times of Ti: The officers and members of the Ticonderoga Elks Lodge #1494 thank all who helped make our National Foundation breakfast fund raiser a huge success on Oct. 28. The Elks National Foundation provides grants for our youth fishing tournaments, the hoop shoot and soccer, the Christmas food baskets and our veterans. We especially want to thank the merchants who so generously gave to our fundraiser — Adirondack Hair Creations, Angela’s Hair Styling, Burleigh Luncheonette, Country Florist, Hot Biscuit Diner, House of Pizza, Jay’s Sunoco, Karisa Cook Photography, Montcalm Liquors, Mt. Time Furniture, NAPA Auto Parts, Norm’s Bait and Tackle , Rathbun Jewelers, Times of Ti, Ti Subway Sandwiches, Ti Paint & Supply, Tony’s Sports, Treadway Fuels and Two Brothers Meat Market. Thanks to The Stewarts Shop, Two Brothers Meat Market and Wal-Mart for letting us set up our ticket tables. Peggy Lamb Elks National Foundation chairwoman Ticonderoga

Pure bull To the Times of Ti: Dave Gibson’s letter on Boreas Pond is pure bull. Anyone who knows anything about the forest preserve knows that there is no maintenance or management of forest preserve lands. There will be no Boreas Pond. It will be destroyed via the dam not being maintained, thus draining the pond and destroying this fishery. The same goes for the Chain of Lakes and Hudson River. His statements on wilderness users and tourism are false. One has only to look to Hamilton County to see the destruction to the local economy, jobs, businesses, etc. that the forest preserve has caused. Hikers, canoeists, kayakers spend nothing at local establishments. They bring their granola junk with them, block our roads with illegal parking and obstruct emergency and other vehicles, and leave their trash and garbage all over the woods and roadside for the locals to pay for pickup. They are a drain on the local economy and town budgets. The entire 161,000 acres of Finch- Nature Conservancy property should be Conservation Easement! None of these lands should become part of the forest preserve! Time NYS stopped destroying our wildlife’s food, shelter, and habitat! Time NYS stopped destroying jobs, businesses, and local economies! Time to abolish the forest preserve! Don Sage Paradox

Appreciation To the Times of Ti:

The new common core curriculum requires unit study and Pam Arzgerger's fifth grade English Language Arts class at St. Mary's School is learning about The Rennassance. Above, Talandra Hulburt uses Michelangelo's technique of drawing while lying on her back, as was done in the Sistene Chapel, as she draws “the hand of God.”

I would like to thank the community for their outpouring of support for me and my family over the past few months. Since being diagnosed with a rare brain cancer, we have met several challenges, however, lack of support and understanding has not been one of them. We have been blessed to have had several successful benefits including a basket raffle, wrestling match and golf tournament. To everyone who helped organize, donated and participated in the benefits thank you! Friends, family, colleagues, local businesses and perfect strangers; the list of people to thank is a vast one. Please know that the help we have received is so greatly appreciated! The generosity we have seen continues to amaze us every day. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Katy, Dustin and Cameron Sleeper Witherbee

Teresa (Assemblywoman Sayward), shame on you! Supporting Owens is a major mistake. No one questions Bill Owens’ work ethic or integrity, but he is a Democrat! He is in bed with the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, supported Obama by voting positive on all the Obama initiatives putting the U.S. economy $6 trillion more in debt, debt that will be paid by other generations of U.S. citizens. Shame on all of us for allowing that. I worked hard all my life to pay my debts and to pass something on to my family when I go, if the government doesn’t steal it with estate taxes. I supported you (Sayward) for many years, attend many function and visited you in Albany on property tax reform issues. This is the first time you let me and all who supported you down. I request you issue a press release retracting your support for Owens and encouraging people to vote for Matt Doheny. Remember Obama and Clinton are working with the UN on confiscation of fire arms, taxing the internet and a host of other equally damaging taxes providing the start of world governance. Teresa vote for Matt Doheny and correct the shame you have brought on yourself! Bert Windle Putnam

Ti school board lauded To the Times of Ti: I want to commend Superintendent John McDonald and the Ticonderoga school board for speaking out concerning the need for funding reform for our schools. (I refer specifically to the Oct. 19 article by Fred Herbst in the Times of Ti e-mail edition.) You are correct in citing the serious shortcomings of the existing property tax system as the method of funding education in our community and throughout the Adirondacks. Their support for a special education fund to relieve the property tax burden will certainly help call the attention of legislators in Albany to the continuing seriousness of the problem. Many of these legislators seem to have erroneously believed that the new 2 percent tax cap would somehow miraculously control the ever-increasing costs plaguing schools, towns and counties alike. I thank the board for speaking up. Sadly, however, I fear that the state may be loathe to cough up additional funding for such a special education fund for Adirondack schools, any more than they do now to cover their unfunded mandates. Sometimes it seems that schools with declining enrollments (like those in the Adirondacks) are under some kind of special attack from Albany. Hopefully, I am wrong and there will be support for your idea. I wish it success and am glad to lend my support for the idea. In addition to the support for the special education fund reform, I hope that both the Ticonderoga school board and the Ticonderoga town board will express support for statewide property tax relief through an income-based “circuit breaker,” such as one that has been proposed by our own state legislators for several years. Many residents in our community and elsewhere in the Adirondacks know that property taxes often bear no relation to current income. The fact is that many families face tough financial burdens after workers lose their jobs, become ill or retire. People with reduced or fixed incomes may be forced to sell a home they have owned for many decades, simply because they can no longer afford their ever-increasing annual property taxes. It is estimated that nearly 700,000 New York households with incomes less than $100,000 pay at least 10 percent of their income in property taxes on their home — an unsustainable burden. “Circuit-breaker” tax relief legislation would effectively limit an individual family’s property tax burden on their primary residence. Depending on the legislation, a family’s property tax would be limited to no more than perhaps 9 percent of their gross family income, plus a modest amount of the remaining property tax over that amount. The circuitbreaker relief would apply to renters as well as home owners, would cover town and county taxes as well as school taxes, and would be confidentially issued as an individual refund on a resident’s New York state income tax return after the family has paid the full amount of the property tax owed to their local governments and school district. No one in the community would pay a higher property tax as a result of the circuit breaker. The full circuit-breaker relief reform could be phased in over a period of four or more years to eligible families who had owned their homes for perhaps five years or more. People can check out the web site, www.NYSpropertytaxreform.org, for additional information about one circuit breaker relief model. The web site contains an automatic calculator to enable someone to find out what their property tax relief would be under one piece of legislation, depending on figures entered for property taxes and household income. I hope that the Ticonderoga school board and town board will support the circuit breaker as a model for relieving the property tax crisis facing many families. Richard Wray Ticonderoga

Ticonderoga Elks assist veterans; Stand-Down held in Colonie TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga Elks Lodge No. 1494 supported this year ’s Capital Region Veterans’ Stand-Down, hosted by Colonie Elks Lodge No. 2192, with a check for $500. The Stand-Down is an effort to assist veterans by providing assistance and services. Although the homeless and atrisk veterans are the primary focus, they are not the only ones being helped. Many veterans and their families were

greeted and directed to various booths inside, which were managed by experts who provided various forms of assistance. No veteran was turned away for any reason. In the Elks’ pavilion were tables full of clothing, shoes, underwear, sleeping bags, etc. and each of the veterans were given a 50-gallon plastic bag that they filled with any of the items they wanted. The veterans were also served a breakfast and lunch by the Elks.

The news media, representatives from various schools, businesses and numerous organizations as well as political leaders that took part in this effort were all thankful that the Colonie Elks provided their lodge building, parking area, enclosed pavilion and hospitality. Ticonderoga Elks Lodge No. 1494 has supported this effort for many years.

Volunteers sought for holiday charity effort Red Kettles planned in Ti, Port Henry By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Christmas is in the distance future for most people, but Glen Buell is already making plans for the holiday season. Buell is the Ticonderoga coordinator for the annual Salvation

Army Red Kettle drive. He and Tina Martin, the Salvation Army Port Henry coordinator, are lining up help for the traditional charity effort. “The Red Kettles have become a tradition throughout the United States, raising money to assist the less fortunate,” Buell said. “If you have a friendly face, you don’t mind being out in the cold for an hour or two, and you would like to do something to benefit your community this holiday season, then consider becoming a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army.”

The 2012 Red Kettle campaign will continue through Christmas Eve in Ticonderoga and Port Henry. Volunteers are needed in both communities on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting the week before Thanksgiving. The campaign will conclude Christmas Eve. “Companies, organizations, schools and individuals can sign up as volunteers,” Buell said. “Up to 90 percent of the money raised is available to help people in need in our local community. A number of people were helped at Christmas last year. Families and individuals have received assistance to buy food, clothing, school supplies and to pay utility bills.” People interested in volunteering for the Red Kettle campaign, or throughout the entire year, can call Buell at 597-3222 or Martin at 546-4020. Anyone who needs assistance can also call Buell or Martin.

then sent a letter to Crown Point asking if they had interest in pursuing a study. They indicated they did.” The schools then applied for a grant, which was awarded in October, to hire an independent consultant to complete a feasibility study. “CPCS is being proactive in its efforts to use the local efficiency grant to explore the business of education in both districts,” said Shari Brannock, Crown Point superintendent. “The purpose of the grant is to fund a study that will help both communities determine ways we can become more efficient, share services and possibly reorganize in a manner beneficial to all stakeholders.” The districts will soon hire a consultant to do the study. Once that study is complete, it will be reviewed by an advisory board made up of representatives of both districts and the two school boards. There will be a series of public hearings and presentations. If the advisory and school boards decide to proceed following the study, they must then decide whether to seek a merger or an annexation. A merger combines two school districts into a new district. An annexation simply closes one school and sends its students to the other. As examples, McDonald pointed to the merger of the Port Henry and Mineville schools in 1967 to make the Moriah Central School and the annexation of the Hague school in 1979 into the Ticonderoga Central School District. For either a merger or annexation to take place, there must be affirmative votes by the advisory board, each school board and the residents of each school district. Any negative vote kills a possible consolidation. “It’s a study, we don’t know what it’ll say,” McDonald said. “All options will be open.” Brannock agreed a possible consolidation is far from a sure thing. “As the study progresses, there is a requirement that taxpayers in both communities have two opportunities to vote and they will make the final decision about how we operate in the future,” she said. “We are fortunate, in these tough fiscal times, to have the grant to help us secure our future.” The study will look at a wide range of issues including enrollment trends, academic programs, property assessments, tax rates, contracts and more. Enrollments at both schools are falling. In the 2005-06 academic year Ti had 1,007 students and Crown Point 281. This school year Ti has 850 and Crown Point 265. The projected 201617 enrollments are 779 for Ti and 257 for Crown Point. Poverty rates are increasing in both schools. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunches in the 200506 academic year was 43 percent in Ti and 54 percent in Crown Point. Those rates rose to 49 percent in Ti and 57 in Crown Point in 2011-12. McDonald said even if there is no consolidation, the study may prove helpful in finding ways the two districts can share services and save money. Crown Point and Ticonderoga now share transportation to the Mineville Champlain Valley Tech campus. Last year Crown Point students came to Ti High for a physics class. “The study may show a consolidation is not warranted, but it may show us ways to share more services,” McDonald said. School consolidations in New York are not uncommon. When the statewide public school system formed in 1795 there were 11,372 school districts in New York. That number had fallen to 6,397 by 1940. Today there are 697 school districts in New York.

Election 2012: 114th Assembly: Dennis Tarantino (D) v. Dan Stec (R) Denton Publications recently sat down with Dennis Tarantino and Dan Stec, candidates for the vacant 114th Assembly District, to discuss several key issues that relate to the district, state and 2012 election. We asked each candidate six questions on the same topics and allowed them to respond. Here is some of what they had to say:

Dennis Tarantino W h e n t h e s t a t e a d o p t e d t h e 2 p e rc e n t property tax cap, local municipalities and school districts were promised mandate relief. To date there has been no meaningful mandate relief. What action will you take to help local governments meet the tax cap? I am a big supporter of Gov. Cuomo in a lot of respects, but he'd said that there is no more mandate relief coming. I believe that there has to be mandate relief. There has to be. We have the economic councils set up and now is the time to start to work on it and that would be one of my top priorities. One thing that concerns me is Medicaid. If we are going to make some changes, I want to make sure that we do no harm to the recipients. There are things that we are trying to do well for society, but we have to deal with how to fund them. The Lake George Park Commission will likely approve a plan requiring decontamination and inspection of boats before entering Lake George. Implementation of the program will require DEC approval and state funding. Do you support it? There is no question that protecting and preserving the assets that we have is critical to our lifestyle. It would have a detrimental impact on our tourism economy. The use of our occupancy tax is a legitimate use in this area. If it inconveniences a few people to protect the asset, then I feel we should inconvenience a few people. I am concerned that those that live here are not overcharged for the use of the lake. When it comes time for the APA to classify the 20,000 acres surrounding the Boreas Ponds tract, what type of classification would you support? How do you stand on removing the log cabin that overlooks the ponds and maintaining the roads and manmade dam there? I know the position of the environmentalists that they want to open it up. I am concerned about the needs of the hunting camps and protecting them. It's an APA issue to me in general and I would want to talk to specialized people on these specialized issues, like Fred Monroe, whose opinion I respect. I want to take a look at both sides before I react. You favor raising the minimum wage. Please explain your rationale for that position when business owners argue that doing so will most likely force them to raise prices to adjust for increased labor costs? In my small survey of business owners, I received just one significant opposition to my position. I said that it had been raised once before and I asked him if it affected his business, and he said no. The other people have said to me that it is time to raise it. They agree with the 80 percent of the people in the state that agree that it is time to increase the minimum wage. I don't think that it is going to hurt business, I really don't. Some people have even said it is a moral thing that we need to do. I think that it is needed, especially in this district. The North Country has been dealing with lack of good job opportunities for our youth, sometimes referred to as Brain Drain.  What ideas do you have to help us retain our youth so they can help stimulate the North Country economy and see strong value in remaining here and raising their families here?  The first step is education and funding the schools better. Downstate schools are getting more money then we are up here. We have to realize that these kids need different training then we needed when we came out of school. We have to look at the employers and where we can expand jobs in the North Country. The family structure is also important in giving kids the work ethic and tools that they need. Governor Cuomo has created a strong bi-partisan  leader style since taking office and has been a regular visitor to the 114th district. What opportunities do you see to assist the district in working with the governor and are there areas in which you disagree with his positions that have an adverse affect on the district? The whole atmosphere with him and what happens here up north, it seems that he connects with people and that is a real positive sign. In the past there has not always been that bipartisanship with the governor. Because of Gov. Cuomo and the image that he has been making, I want to be a part of his team and what he is doing. I feel that I would have a real close link to the governor ’s office. I think the ”D” next to my name will help us up here more. I am not saying that it would be a magic bullet, but it could help. Unfounded mandates would be on the top of the list for things that hurt the region. I am looking for two years to do something, and just two. I want to make an immediate impact and work to get things done right away. I think that he will talk to me and I think that we can get some things done that way.

Dan Stec When the state adopted the 2 percent property tax cap, local municipalities and school districts were promised mandate relief. To date there has been no meaningful mandate relief. What action will you take to help local governments meet the tax cap? We are not asking the state for more money, we are asking for them to stop putting more money on the backs of taxpayers. The state is putting pressure on us to meet a standard and they are taking stuff out of their backpack and putting it in our backpack. Everyone in the district is saying that same thing about the mandates. The vast majority of local budgets are things that are mandated by the state. They are not asking for state handouts, they are just saying don't keep running up our tab. I'm opposed to just shifting the burden back to the state, but the list of mandates cannot keep outpacing the tax cap. The Lake George Park Commission will likely approve a plan requiring decontamination and inspection of boats before entering Lake George. Implementation of the program will require DEC approval and state funding. Do you support it? The Warren County board has been frustrated with the issue of Asian clams for a number of years. We are very frustrated that the state has not been doing their job as a landowner of the lake and the clock is ticking, which is why we’ve made the decision to use occupancy tax money toward the problem. A lot of the supervisors in the park believe that some of these land purchase monies should go toward Asian clam and invasive species protection. When it comes time for the APA to classify the 20,000 acres surrounding the Boreas Ponds tract, what type of classification would you support? How do you stand on removing the log cabin that overlooks the ponds and maintaining the roads and manmade dam there? Maintain what you have in the cabin and the infrastructure that you have. Just to tear down a structure that you have does not make sense to me and does not seem right to me. If the state is going to own land, let people access the land for recreation. If you can’t take care of the land you already own, you shouldn’t be buying more land. I'm still hoping there is a compromise that will be more acceptable to people, such as a combination of classifications or conservation easements. You oppose raising the minimum wage. Please explain your rationale and what affect you think it will have on the economy should it not be increased? I have seen independent studies that show an increase in the minimum wage could have a detrimental impact. The economy is very fragile and my belief is that you would have more people unemployed because family businesses would make the decision that junior will do more work rather than from hiring someone from outside. I have yet to meet a single employer that says if the state would raise the minimum wage then I will hire more employees. There are two ways that you can raise wages. One way is through the economy and the other way is through another state mandate, and our state does not have a good track record with those. The economy is too fragile to do it now. The North Country has been dealing with lack of good job opportunities for our youth, sometimes referred to as Brain Drain.   What ideas do you have to help us retain our youth so they can help stimulate the North Country economy and see strong value in remaining here and raising their families here?  Our youth are more comfortable in the digital age, but if you can't get connected to the internet in Minerva or Keene, then you are not going to live there. We need to make sure that we can remain connected to the rest of the world or people are going to leave. There are flashes of positive potential on the fringes of the park. The Blue Line is really an impediment, that is what really is stopping economic growth. There is a lot of clean green businesses. They will not even look here because the site selectors have the big table and they just put an “x,” through it because of the regulatory climate in the park. Governor Cuomo has created a strong bi-partisan  leader style since taking office and has been a regular visitor to the 114th district. What opportunities do you see to assist the district in working with the Governor and are there areas in which you disagree with his positions that have an adverse affect on the district? By and large, I give him a high score, but not a perfect score. I agree that the governor has spent a lot of time here and has a definite interest in the park and I am encouraged by that. I congratulate him on the regional economic development councils, and I know Sen. Little and Assemblywoman Sayward have spoken highly of him. The one area I disagree with him is the area about the tax cap and mandate relief. He has not done enough with mandate relief and that is going to become obvious as the numbers start to come out. The curves are going to intersect soon. The continuing purchases of lands in the Adirondacks is a little concerning, as well.

Schroon lake Central School seventh and eighth grade students recently took a cross curricular field trip up Severance Mountain. Jeff Cutting, a math teacher, Lee Silvernail, a physical education teacher, Matt Riddle, a science teacher and Kristy Barno, an English teacher, led the hike. They used the local mountain as a way to incorporate each subject area into a real-life learning experience. Math used the ascent to calculate speed and convert units. PE did heart rate monitoring. English did nature journaling. Science used the opportunity to gather data about forest type vs. elevation.

Election Coverage 2012 • Times of Ti - 13

Election 2012: 21st Congressional: Bill Owens (D) v. Matt Doheny (R) Denton Publications recently sat down with incumbent Congressman Bill Owens and challenger Matt Doheny to discuss several key issues that relate to the North Country, nation, and the 2012 election. We asked each candidate the same six questions and allowed them to respond. Here is some of what they had to say:

Bill Owens After hearing from and speaking to people in the 21st District, list the top three issues people in the North Country are facing, in your opinion, and how you would address them: Clearly the first thing that we hear about is jobs and the economy. We look at a couple of different elements. The first is the unfilled jobs in the North Country. The other piece of it is that we need to have some programs that would supplement wages. If they had a $12 an hour job and were offered an $8, they should be offered some transitional money to get it back up to the $12 range. I think that we need to continue to focus on Canada as a continued source of employment. One of the other pieces is to make sure that we are providing public funding to put broadband into the communities and improving broadband coverage in the communities. The second thing is about our inability in Congress to get anything done. People are just very concerned that we are unable to have a conversation and reach a conclusion. From my perspective, I vote about 35-percent of the time with the Republicans. I am considered by the rating agencies to be a moderate. The third topic that we hear a lot about is the farm bill. Those are the three things that I hear most consistently in the conversation. We need to pass the farm bill in the house so we can get it into the Senate, because in January we are reverting back to a 1930's statute — there is some concern for a truly unanticipated outcome. Both sides say they have the best interest of the middle class at heart, but the argument can be made that the middle class has been in a downward spiral under both political parties for years. Give specific examples of what can be done to offer immediate relief to the middle class and how you would help make that happen? Most of what I talk about is focused on the middle class and trying to create those middle class jobs. The other piece of this is we're in a scenario where we have been, in essence, pushing the middle class down. There is a point where you get to the cliff. If you continue this downward push you will then push the economy over the edge of the table. We need to get people back to work focusing on education and not just higher education. We need to make sure we have people who have skills and can work in the trades. Point kids toward the jobs that will be available. I think that for most of us, when I decided to become a lawyer, I did not know what it was going to take to be a lawyer. I grew to love the job, and I don't think that there is anything wrong with that. Everyone talks about bipartisanship, yet candidates — like yourselves — continue to campaign with hostility toward the other side. After such a mean-spirited campaign is bipartisanship really possible? I would say to you that the answer is yes because generally speaking, the people you have had a tough campaign with are not the people that you are working with generally. Chris Gibson and I work together fine. It is an interesting question as to are we a reflection of society or is society a reflection of us. If in fact you are going to solve some of these problems, part of what has to happen is we have to take responsibility, but the public has to take responsibility as well. People have to argue from the facts and as you do these things, there will be pain of various types that people will experience, and it has to be a shared pain in order for it to be fair. Candidates are anxious to meet with local residents every two years when running for office. Are you willing to make a commitment that you’ll visit each town — other than a campaign stop —  in your district during your term? When you have 17,000 square miles to cover it is tough. Certainly we will reach out to every constituent. As far as getting out to every town, certainly that is a tough commitment to make. I think that people enjoy the telephone town halls. They get to hear what people are saying in the broader district. We will continue to use mobile office hours and literature and all of the tools in the cabinet. We will make as many stops as we physically can. I want the experience to be a quality experience, not just checking something off a sheet. We know your position on Obama Care. What do you see as the two best and the worst elements of the legislation and how can we move health care forward without wasting the past four year ’s efforts? The two most important elements are the ones that push us toward more preventative care and getting those 30 million people insured. It is a shifting in sources of revenue rather than the elimination of one. I did vote to repeal a couple of sections, the 1099 piece and the medical device tax. I think as we go forward, we are going to need to remain somewhat flexible as we go through this process to see what works and what doesn't and to make changes as we go along. State insurance exchanges are a good example. Is getting this job about you or about the country? And if about the country then why do you need health care, a pension and more than a million dollars a year for offices in order to serve? I am on my wife's plan and not the Congressional plan. Like all federal employees, everyone needs health care so you need a source. The pension only kicks in if you are there for five years and it is 1.3 percent which is contributed for vesting for you. It's not as people think, day one you get a pension and it is your full salary. I am not sure how one covers 17,000 square miles without a few dollars. It costs money to run town halls, it costs money to set up offices and it costs money to travel around the district. I have returned between 10-12 percent of my budget because I managed to achieve my goal. We have been pretty successful at that. If you are going to talk about cutting, then you have to show that you can cut yourself. If you took 10 percent out of the federal budget, you would save about $300 billion, which would be a significant amount of money.

Matt Doheny After hearing from and speaking to people in the 21st District, list the top three issues people in the North Country are facing, in your opinion, and how you would address them: The first is the lack of growth in economy. Second is the lack of jobs because of lack of growth. The third would be the lack of government effectiveness in the sense of the debt blowing out to record levels and the sense of uncertainty in the economy. This is why I am running for congress. I want everybody to have the same opportunities that our parents and grandparents had. I have taken on tremendous challenges and am a self-made man as a businessman. Bringing that know-how is what we need to bring the economy forward. Jobs is a corollary of that. Private sector job growth is how we are going to have a vital economy here whether you live in the blue line or in a city area. I think I have an opportunity to be the salesman-in-chief. Both sides say they have the best interest of the middle class at heart, but the argument can be made that the middle class has been in a downward spiral under both political parties for years. Give specific examples of what can be done to offer immediate relief to the middle class and how you would help make that happen? I do agree that the stats speak for themselves and I do not think that is just a President Obama challenge. We had the same challenge through George W. Bush, but not as acute. As someone growing up barely in the middle class in Alex Bay, I understand. I am going to put myself in the shoes of a small business person. How would that person vote in Washington? That is not only a good proxy for the small business owner, but also it is a good proxy for the middle class person. When you get to the nuts and bolts, voting that way will help remove the barriers that prevent people from getting through the day. I believe in the social safety net, but when the social safety net becomes a hammock, that is when people get upset. When we talk about gas prices, in terms of an issue, everybody talks about it. When it takes you 45-50 minutes to get to work everyday, gas prices matter. Can I tell you that I can move the price of gas three cents, that's hogwash. But to work on policies where we can have independence or to have more control over the demand, that is definitely something worth pursuing. Everyone talks about bipartisanship, yet candidates — like yourselves — continue to campaign with hostility toward the other side. After such a mean-spirited campaign is bipartisanship really possible? It is possible. Are there policy differences, sure. The moment you get elected, we are all Americans. The lack of leadership is a bi-partisan failure. I have not become successful because I have said that I want to get everything that I want out of every deal and you get nothing. You want the other person to get their six or seven things because the deal has to be something that both sides can be happy on. That seems to be something that has become lost in Washington. We have not had a budget in four years. Everything we talk about in business is all about being on budget. You can't run a business, a family or a not-for-profit that way. I will work very closely with our Democratic senators and the governor. I do not care if the local town supervisor is a D, R, I or Martian. There is no Democratic or Republican sewer line or cell phone tower. Candidates are anxious to meet with local residents every two years when running for office. Are you willing to make a commitment that you’ll visit each town — other than a campaign stop —  in your district during your term? I have pledged that I am going to visit each of the 194 towns within my district once every term. I am going to have an office in all 12 counties. Essex County will have an office. I want to invest in people and in physical space rather than mailers. There will be someone in each county that will be responsible and the point person for the campaign. We know your position on Obama Care. What do you see as the two best and the worst elements of the legislation and how can we move health care forward without wasting the past four year ’s efforts? The two best elements are moving the age from 18 to 26 for coverage. I think that is something I would include in any health care package. I think that there are discrete elements that could be channeled into a form where we are trying to make sure that we have incentives to make sure that people do not get as sick as quickly. Some of the preventative issues we could work with to create a better free market healthcare system. The two biggest problems are just so fundamental. It is going to be a climb to a single payer system. It's going to have a huge negative impact. The way Obama Care is structured will lead to fewer hospitals and fewer doctors in rural America and in the North Country. All of the savings are determined through a 15 person panel. How do I know it, because I actually read it. How do you stop it, there is a super-majority provision of the house and senate to stop one of these recommendations from becoming the law of the land. It will reduce our healthcare benefits. This is why we have to go in a different direction in terms of health care. A lot of it is directed to having government say who is getting paid and how they are going to get it. Is getting this job about you or about the country? And if about the country then why do you need health care, a pension and more than a million dollars a year for offices in order to serve? It is 100-percent about the country. When you are your own largest donor, it’s not about me. If they want to change the reimbursement then I will have no problem with it. If there were a bill to change the congressional pension program not only would I vote for the bill, I would co-sponsor it.

Also running: Donald Hassig Donald Hassig, who lives in Canton and is the head of the Cancer Action NY advocacy group, is running on the Green Party line in the Nov. 6 election. Hassig stated that his campaign was to bring more awareness to the fight against carcinogens that can cause cancer, and he hopes to earn at least 1,000 votes in the process.

By Katherine Clark katherine@denpubs.com PORT HENRY — Essex County Families First celebrated 20 years of providing a broad range of services to county residents. “We wanted to take this time to celebrate how far we have come and all the people who have stuck with us from the beginning,” Ann Griffin, development director of Families First, said. About 75 people attended the ceremony at the Knights of Columbus in Port Henry. “It was a memorable night with the founding director, second executive director, and current executive director speaking about changes over the years,” Griffin said. Griffin said in an open floor session several former and current staff and board members gave heartfelt comments about the meaningfulness and importance of our work supporting Essex County families who have children with mental health issues. “We are all proud to have been part of the journey from a tiny grass roots agency with a staff of one and a half full time equivalent and a budget of $85,000 to a fully developed agency with four programs and a staff of seventeen and a budget of nearly a million,” Griffin said. Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward presented Families First with a New York State Assembly Citation recognizing their achievement in service to the community. The citation reads in part, “It is my intent to convey my compliments and congratulations to Families First for their twenty years of contributions and services to the families of the Adirondack Region… I recognize that in Families First we have outstanding citizens, worthy of public recognition and commendation, fully confident that they are an asset beyond remuneration and that such praise cannot be sufficiently extolled.” Griffin, who has been with Families First since it opened its doors in 1992, said the program has grown with the belief that children are better off serviced in homes and their home communities. Families First works to raise awareness of children’s mental health issues and serving families whose children have those issues. Now the program is more than just providing psychological services but works to be a crutch for all family members to help them through their child’s illness. “There were never any guarantees that Families First would survive and thrive, and we celebrate the fact that over these past twenty years we have served more than 3,000 Essex County families,” Griffin said. For more information about Families First services visit its website at www.familiesfirstessex.org or call 873-9544.

example of historic preservation. As a result, the Paradox Community Center Association has been cited by the Adirondack Architectural Heritage, a Keeseville-based historic preservation organization. “It’s a great honor for a wonderful, old building,” said R. Peter Clark of the Paradox Community Center Association. The award was presented during the 17th annual AARCH Preservation Awards luncheon in Lake George. The Paradox Community Center, located on Letsonville Road in the town of Schroon hamlet of Paradox, was constructed in 1825 as the Paradox school. About 50 students a year attended the school until the Schroon Lake Central School District was organized in 1937, Clarke explained. That year the building was deeded to the non-for-profit Paradox Community Center Association. It was used for community activities such as weekly square dances, family reunions, boat safety classes, gymnastics classes and as an art studio through the 1980s, Clarke said. “In 1946 I met my wife here,” Clarke said. “I was 13 or 14 at a square dance. It was a summer romance.” The building still had the original black board from its days as a school. But it also had problems.

R. Peter Clark stands outside the Paradox Community Center. The Paradox Community Center Association has been cited by the Adirondack Architectural Heritage, a Keeseville-based historic preservation organization.

FROM NOW UNTIL BLACK FRIDAY!

In 2004 the Paradox Community Center Association began a campaign to save and restore the building. The group received more than $20,000 in donations and grants and today the center has been restored. It now has a new kitchen and a meeting room, which still houses the original black board. The foundation has been replaced, sagging walls have been straightened, the roof repaired, new electrical service installed and more. Most recently a modern rest room and air conditioning were installed. The restored building offers a space for community functions, including meetings, dances, family gatherings and children’s programs. There are about 50 members of the Paradox Community Center Association. Interested people can contact Clarke at the Paradox Community Center, Box 87, Paradox 12858. Clarke noted there are 19 year-round residents of Paradox, but that number swells to about 500 in the summer. Joining the Paradox Community Center Association in donating to the building’s rebirth were Aubuchon Hardware, Stewart’s Shops, Wal-Mart, the Paradox Store, Grand Union, International Paper Co., Glens Falls National Bank,the Glen Recy Beach Association, the Arts Council of Northern Adirondacks, the New York State Council on the Arts, Home Depot and the Charles H. Douglas Charitable Trust. State Sen. Betty Little also secured a New York State Initiative Grant for the project. Grants were received from the Schroon Bicentennial Committee and the Essex County Historical Association. Adirondack Architectural Heritage is the non-profit historic preservation organization for the Adirondack Park. AARCH was formed in 1990 with a mission to promote better public understanding, appreciation and stewardship of the Adirondacks unique and diverse architectural heritage. AARCH has worked to preserve the Adirondack’s “Great Camps” and other rustic buildings as well as a wide variety of homes and farmsteads, churches, commercial buildings, town halls, libraries, bridges, railroad buildings, lighthouses and other structures.

he NCSPCA would like to thank all who participated in making our fifth annual "Fashion for a Passion" show a success! The event, held on Oct. 13, at the Mineville VFW, raised more than $6,000 for our animals. We are especially grateful to the Fashion Corner Bridal and Surries and Sons Tuxedos for sponsoring the stunning dresses and ensembles. You can view pictures from the event at our Facebook site. We are also proud to announce that the new shelter project is well on its way to completion! After breaking ground on Aug. 15, the foundation has been laid and the walls to our new shelter have been erected. We plan to open our doors by the end of March of 2013. You can read about the development of this new, stateof-the art facility on our website, ncscpa.org. The new shelter will replace the cramped, 40-year old current facility on Lakeshore Ave in Westport.

Our featured pet this week is a gorgeous young Russian Blue/mix cat names Seppo, who recently came in with his brother Grande. This handsome Seppo boy is a real charmer, who is very quick to purr and beg for your attention. True to his breed, Seppo's luminous coat is a beautiful solid grey that appears almost blue. Although he has a lot of "teenager" cat antics, Seppo is quick to calm down to some serious cuddling. If you are looking for a feline friend who is playful, intelligent, and sweet, Seppo is the cat for you!

Annie, get your gun!

A

lthough the overall number of licensed hunters in the United States has been on a steady decline, from over 14.1 million participants in 1996 to less than 12.5 million today, there has been one promising trend with the potential to save the shooting sports industry. Currently, the fastest growing demographic in the industry are women, who currently account for about 15 percent of the shooting, hunting, and firearms marketplace. According to a survey conducted by the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA), women’s participation in hunting has increased by over 75 percent is just the last five years. It is estimated 3 million women currently hunt, and as many as 5 million regularly shoot. Hunting and shooting are not gender specific sports, and it appears Barbie may soon replace Bubba in the both field, and at the range. As the overall number of licensed hunters in the United States has dropped steadily, from 14.1 million in 1996 to 12.5 million today, women have become the fastest growing demographic in the industry. Overall women’s hunting has jumped by 75 percent. According to researchers, there are 72 percent more women hunting with firearms today than just five years ago. Additionally, there are 50 percent more women regularly participating in target shooting, up from 1.8 million to 3.6 million during the same time span. Data also indicates women outpace men among net newcomers to target shooting with a rifle, where female participation has grown by 4.1 percent. However hunting with a rifle remains primarily a male pursuit, where men still outnumber women 9 to 1. In 2011, a Gallup Poll revealed that nearly one quarter of all current gun owners are female. Women now account for nearly 15 percent of the shooting, hunting, and firearms marketplace. Female participation in target shooting increased about 50 percent or from 3.3 million to 5 million nationally from 2001 to 2011, and female participation in hunting increased from 1.8 million to 2.6 million during the same time span. Growth areas for women included muzzleloading (up 134.6 percent), bowhunting (up 30.7 percent) and hunting with firearms (up 3.5 percent). According to Corey Cogdell, a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist in trap shooting, and a lifelong hunter, "Shooting is one of the most fun and empowering things you can teach a young girl or a grown woman.” The dramatic increase in female participation can be attributed to numerous programs intended to introduce women to hunting, such Becoming An Outdoors Woman program, Doe Camp and as well as more manufacturers producing clothing and gear designed for women.

From 2001 to 2010, the number of women participating in target shooting competitions went up 46.5 percent. The success of the USA Womens Shooting Team, which captured at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, is likely to generate even greater interest in shooting sports. The team was lead by Kimberly Rhode, the first American to achieve individual medals in five straight Olympics, with a record-setting, near perfect performance. Rhode began her Olympic career as a teenager in 1996 while taking the gold in double trap at Atlanta, and she took bronze in the same event four years later at Sydney. She earned the gold in trap at Athens in 2004 and won the silver in skeet at Beijing in 2008. She won the women's skeet shooting with a world record performance in London, while setting an Olympic mark by missing only once in 100 shots. My first experience with a female shooter came over twenty years ago. It occurred while I was hosting an afternoon of skeet shooting for a private group at a local resort. I had set up two clay pigeon throwers, one of which sent targets on a crossing pattern from left to right, and another which sent targets straight away from the shooters. The straightaway station provided a much easier shot. The gentlemen, all in their late fifty’s and early sixties, took a few practice rounds and soon the wagering began. As the competitions continued, the commodities wagered changed from cash, to hand rolled cigars, to bottles of fine scotch whiskey. As the event was winding down, a young lady arrived at the compound. She had come over from Burlington, where she was attending college. Her father, who had arranged the event, asked her, “Would you like to shoot a round or two?” “Oh no, I simply can’t”, she explained, “I’d be embarrassed, I haven’t shot in years!” Immediately, the old gents began to chide her, “Awww! come on little lady, let’s see what you’ve got! We’ll go easy on you, Honey. Hell! you can’t be any worse than your Dad!” She attempted to beg off from the event, explaining, “I’m just over for the afternoon, I have to get back to college today.” Following some good hearted, needling from the assembly, she finally relented and parked her car in the lot. As she walked up to the range, she apologized for not wanting to wager. However, as she began to stuff shot shells into a beautiful, old Purdey shotgun, the wagering began anew. Her father spotted her some cash, and on the first round she knocked down five out of the six clays. It turned out to be her only miss of the afternoon. One at a time, she continued to unabashedly shoot the pants off all of the old gents, despite their various attempts to rattle her. Best of all, she did it while sporting a wide smile. After the competitions ended, she asked me to help her carry the winnings back to her car. I expect she was the most popular girl on campus, returning with boxes of hand rolled cigars, bottles of Chivas Regal and Crown Royal and a wad of cash that would choke a horse. It was a valuable lesson learned. I’ve never bet against a female shooter since. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at brookside18@adelphia.net.

Cheyenne Williams of Olmstedville, age 14, shows off her first deer, a 4pointer she shot during the youth hunting weekend with her brother, John Williams. According to Cheyenne’s aunt Jennifer Smith, she passed on a doe earlier in the day hoping for a buck, which she got. “Thank you to the NYSDEC for the youth weekend, it was truly a success. Now Cheyenne is hooked on hunting,” Jennifer said. Congratulations Cheyenne - great buck!

Coming of age W

hen 2-year-old Danika Parent was faced with a 50-foot-high waterfall, she turned to the stone wall behind her and began inspecting a tiny rock fern, common polypody, that was growing from a crack in the gorge. The plunging torrent, which commonly causes a spectator traffic jam along the High Falls Gorge’s trails, did little to impress her, but the By Shaun Kittle possibility that a tiny plant could have caused the rock to split intrigued her. The fern wasn’t responsible for the crack, of course—that honor probably goes to frost wedging, a process in which the expansion of freezing water causes rocks, pavement and sidewalks to crack over time. Danika’s interest in all things natural wasn’t deterred by this reality, though. She spent the rest of her journey through the gorge admiring wildflowers growing along the trail’s edge, stomping after toads as they hopped for cover and investigating the sources of various chirps and tweets, all the while casually dismissing the whitecapped water so many others had paid to see. When Danika’s father, Andrew, invited me to join them on this little adventure, I was admittedly hesitant to accept. I used to wonder why anyone would go to a place like High Falls Gorge in Wilmington or Ausable Chasm in Keeseville when all one has to do is hike 6 miles to Indian Pass to see a gorge, or do the 8-mile loop from the Ausable Club to take in half a dozen waterfalls. The answer is simple: Not everyone can get to such places, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to. While exploring High Falls Gorge with Danika and Andrew, I saw people who had issues walking, elderly folks who needed the security of the handrail and parents who had several children to keep track of. While I could argue that most kids can handle the rigors of a trail through the deep woods, not every parent is equipped to bring them there, and there are some whose physical condition simply does not allow for such an endeavor. And then there was little Danika, petting every patch of moss, examining every delicate flower, chasing every swallowtail butterfly. The draw of this place is the West Branch of the Ausable River and the crack in the earth it occupies, but, as Danika had discovered, that is only a lure to something more grand. As we explored the gorge, I began to realize that these businesses, the ones I had previously snubbed, are providing a service whose benefits cannot be weighed. As someone who understands that human health, a clean environment and education are imperative to a functioning society, I can easily make a direct connection between those needs and the importance of everyone having access to the outdoors. Drawing parents and their children into nature encourages people like Danika and Andrew to take a closer look at the living world around them, and the interpretive signs along the trails are the perfect complement to that. This kind of interaction inspires more trips and other healthy activities, and promotes learning that is sparked by a curiosity about the world, something that leads to an understanding of nature that can only develop into respect and compassion for all living things. The walkways and handrails found in places like Ausable Chasm and High Falls Gorge also help those who aren’t as able-bodied navigate the wilderness. People like myself can talk about the obvious benefits of protecting our forests, water and air, but talk pales in comparison to the sight of water raging through a gorge, a pitcher plant in full bloom or a snapping turtle laying eggs. These places are alive. Danika is a little older now, and her ability to pronounce the word “butterfly” has improved dramatically. Andrew calls me for advice regarding other hikes to bring her on, ones without wooden viewing decks and stairways, and I am happy to oblige. I think I will always remember that first adventure, though. It taught me that these places, with their interpretive trail signs and fences, are providing a service to everyone who appreciates the outdoors. It’s funny to me, how learning works. I never would have thought that watching a little girl show her daddy a fern frond could help complete the picture of the world as I see it.

Moriah claimed the Section VII Class D football crown and a berth in the state tournament by beating archrival Ticonderoga, 16-6, Oct. 26. The Vikings, now 4-5 on the season, will face Section X champion Tupper Lake in the opening round of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D tournament. The game will be played in Massena. Cameron Wright and a stout defense led Moriah past Ticonderoga. Wright ran for 262 yards on 42 carries — all but 53 yards the entire Moriah offense. The defense held Ti to a season low 51 yards rushing. After a scoreless first quarter, the Vikings took command in the second period. Wright crashed into the end zone from four yards away for a 6-0 lead. Cole Gaddor then hit Jessup Calkins for the conversion and an 8-0 advantage. Moriah extended its lead with a 74-yard drive that was capped by an eight-yard TD pass from Gaddor to Rainier Garnica with just 18 seconds remaining in the half. The pair connected again for the conversion and a 16-0 lead. Ticonderoga got on the board in the third period when Mike Graney plunged to pay dirt from a yard out to make the score 16-6. The Sentinels threatened again in the final quarter, but were denied by a Viking goal line stand. Ti only reached the Moriah red zone twice in the entire contest. Graney had a nice game for Ticonderoga, hitting on 10-of19 passes for 120 yards. Ti’s ground game was led by Miles Austin, who was held to 36 yards on 16 carries. Ticonderoga, which had won five straight games, finishes the season with a 5-4 mark.

Ti nature trail re-dedicated with Oct. 22 ceremony vironment biology class last academic year, created the sign at the trail’s entrance as a community service project. “Lots of people were involved,” Mallon said. “That’s the way it should be; it was a true community project.” The trail is open to the public and will also be used by students, particularly Mallon’s science classes. “The trail has everything a teacher is looking for,” Mallon said. “The theme is succession — how things change over time. You can see those changes all along the trail.” The trail was originally built by science teacher Keith Dolbeck and students in 1986. Those students, nearly three decades ago, also made a booklet detailing the trail and what was along it. Mallon showed that booklet during the re-dedication ceremony. The natural trail is officially linked to the town’s LaChute Trail system. Mallon hopes signs will soon be erected along the LaChute Trail directing people to the nature trail. John McDonald, Ti school superintendent, said the trail is a welcome addition to the community. “It wouldn’t have happened without Janet (Mallon),” McDonald said. “She knew what needed to be done and what people to bring together. She took the idea, with the help of the Connery family and others, and made it reality.”

Science teacher leads project By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Naturalists and recreationalists can again enjoy the Ticonderoga school nature trail. The trail, located behind the Ticonderoga Middle School, has been reconstructed. The four-year project officially came to an end with a re-dedication ceremony Oct. 22. “We had this beautiful nature trail, but it had become overgrown,” said teacher Janet Mallon, who led the project. “It was a long process to reconstruct it, but it’s done and is a tremendous resource.” The trail, about a half mile long, was cleared, widen and stablized. Seven interpretive signs were placed along the path to education people about their surroundings. The project was completed without taxpayer money. Support came from the Connery family, the Lake George Association, SCA Tissue of Glens Falls, International Paper Co., PRIDE of Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga Girl Scouts, John Reale and Chris Mallon.

Janet Mallon’s science students and teacher Jim Marshall’s technology students assisted with the project. Emily DeBolt, LGA educator, was also praised by Mallon for her work in creating the signage. The signs allow for a self-guided tour of the trail. Mackenzie Strum, Emily Powers and Susan Ward of Girl Scout Troop #3068, who were students in Mallon’s living en-

While prepared for the worst, Sandy leaves North Country unscathed By Keith Lobdell keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Other than power outages and minor damage as a result of wind, the North Country was sparred the brunt of any part of the combination of systems that came to be known as “Frankenstorm.” Hurricane Sandy came ashore in southern New Jersey Oct. 29, with wind gusts and rain from the storm affecting Essex County. Throughout the county, emergency services personnel prepared for the approaching weather event, all the while with lessons learned from Tropical Storm Irene in the back of their minds.

Being prepared Members of the Essex County Office of Emergency Management spent the morning talking to agencies from throughout the region and state Oct. 26, preparing for Frankenstorm. “We really started ramping up (Oct. 25),” Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish said. “We were expecting high winds, power outages and minor flooding.” Jaquish opened the Emergency Operations Center at noon Oct. 29 in preparation for potential events.

one Irene made in August of 2011, hitting shore in northern New Jersey and making its way up the Hudson River Valley and into the North Country. “This dog-leg that was predicted in highly unusual, and we were being very cautious and preparing for a storm that may be coming more toward us,” Jaquish said. Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas, who also chairs the Essex

County Board of Supervisors, said he prepared for a direct impact event. “We have been on conference calls and I have been working with Black Brook and Keene to be prepared for the potential of flooding,” Douglas said. “We loaded sandbags, making sure that our generators are up and running, preparing the shelter at the Jay Community Center and working with the school in case we need even more space for shelter and services.” Douglas said that, because of the amount of warning, the county and town will be as prepared as possible this time around. “Last time the threat was there but I think a lot of it was not realizing the impact that the storm could have on us until it was almost here,” Douglas said about Irene. “This time we are well prepared. We are coming at this as if we are going to take a direct impact.” Keene Supervisor William Ferebee was also working to prepare a town that was hit hard by Irene last year. “I put out an alert to my constituents advising them of the potential of the storm with high winds and possible flood conditions,” Ferebee said. “We advised that those on the flood plane should prepare to evacuate property now instead of later.” Jaquish said that with more warning, Essex County put more resources in place, including preparing the Emergency Operations Center, which was run by Patty Bashaw. “We have a list of who was here last time and we have already touched base with them,” Bashaw said. “We will have the key players in place and we will be ready to ramp it up to whatever level we need to be at in order to respond.” Deputy Emergency Services Director Michael Blaise said he had been in touch with local fire departments and EMS squads. “We talked with departments and will have conference calls to discuss the plans and issues they may have,” Blaise said.

Governor visits

Gov. Andrew Cuomo also told Essex County emergency workers to be prepared when he visited here Sunday, Oct. 28. “You need to pay attention throughout the day because weather forecasts can be wrong,” the governor said after meeting with Town of Jay and county officials. “The main issues are power outages and winds. We have been preparing for days, you can do everything that you can do and then you can hope.” Local school will closed early throughout the county Oct. 29, some as early as 11 a.m. and others past lunchtime.

Ti student recognized TICONDEROGA — Principal Michael Graney of Ticonderoga High School has announced Hannah Herbst, daughter of Fred and Rita Herbst of Ticonderoga, has been named a Commended Student in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) which conducts the program, was presented by the principal to the senior. About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2013 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of the more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) “Recognizing academically talented students plays a fundamental role in the advancement of educational excellence within our nation,” commented an NMSC spokesperson. “The young people recognized as Commended Students represent some of the best and brightest minds in the country as demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program. We sincerely hope this recognition will provide them with additional educational outlets and motivate them in their pursuit of academic achievement.”
