Chamber to kick off holiday shopping By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Black Friday. Cyber Monday. If you need another reason to shop, this year the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will participate in Small Business Saturday.

Times of Ti Editorial


Spending plans need to be Bridging the future presented in readable form I


larity in government is essential for the participation of the people. In few places is that clarity as important as a town or city budget. The town budget has a great impact on people's daily lives. But many budgets presented to citizens, especially in smaller towns, are difficult to read. The documents are full of abbreviations and tightly-packed figures that may capture the spirit and the most essential information on the budget process, but it’s meaningless to most citizens. A budget summary or narrative can be helpful. The issue with one of these attached to a budget that citizens can't read is that they don't know exactly how trustworthy or inclusive the information is; they can't verify it on their own. This is a tall hurdle that makes it hard for constituents to feel empowered. The role of government is the authoritative allocation of scarce resources. Towns' budget officers are working to stay under the 2 percent tax cap, and for some towns this can mean a few thousand dollars up or down. With that little wiggle room, informed feedback from constituents is more valuable than usual this budget year. The role of citizens is to hold their representatives accountable. If the citizens can't account for the money their government is spending, they're missing out on participating in the most important function of their governing body. The problem with many of these publicly distributed documents is their extreme brevity. There's a lot of information to put in there, but handing out small books for public review is awfully inefficient. Paper's not what it used to be in this 21st century. Space was a consideration in those

bygone days before data bits flew through cables and airwaves, bringing us funny cats and free news articles. Now, all that bandwidth required for Mittens' latest mishap can easily accommodate a bigger document packed with easier-to-digest line items. A modern revolution in information design provides many solutions to that problem. Cook County, Ill. made a visualization tool called “Look at Cook” available online for its citizens. The tool features an interactive line graph showing year-to-year spending, with line items that can be drilled down through until users see exactly where their town’s money is spent. The program is an open source, meaning it’s free to use, though it does require some amount of technical expertise. In Portsmouth, N.H., a city council candidate named Jack Thorsen has posted a tool that shows the municipal budget in a pie chart. That by itself is nothing impressive, but as soon as the user hovers their mouse cursor over the graphic it comes alive, spinning and expanding. When a slice of the chart is clicked, say “Library,” a list opens to the right of the chart, documenting how the library funds are spent exactly, from overtime to postage to book-binding. Thorsen is developing his visualization tool as a business venture. At a time when citizens and budget officers are calling for more creativity in allocating those scarce resources, a little creativity in presenting the budget can make community input a lot more valuable.

I have been employed there for almost 3 1/2 years, and in that time I have grown to love our residents and my job. It’s hard work, very stressful at times. Mentally and physically demanding, but I am there to take care of them, not because I have to, but because I choose to. Most of our residents are Medicaid/Medicare. The county now wants to sell or lease our home because its a financial burden. Well, I think it’s time to look at other financial burdens. There is a lot that the county can cut back on, but getting rid of the only home these people have is morally wrong. Our residents have paid taxes all their lives to make sure they were taken care of when it was time they could no longer take care of themselves. We have residents who served our country, ones who owned businesses and let the public charge food until they could pay or pay a very little amount on purchases until it was paid off. We have hard working taxpayers who live with us who deserve to be treated better than a dollar sign. It’s time to step up and support our nursing home. Do the right thing and support the only home these residents have now and to all future residents who will need to be taken care of. Just think, if the county privatizes, that means less staff, less money and workers won’t have the time to take care of them the way we do now. We won’t have enough staff. Going private will only mean hurting the residents care and quality of life. And what will happen to the thousands of people who can’t self pay in the future or now for that matter? We have a county nursing home to take care of the people who paid for it all their lives, not to make a profit. Let the county find other ways to cut costs, because there are many!

Impacts of market tobacco

Crown Point tackles bullying

I was impressed with the wisdom of Dan Alexander when I read his viewpoint on Oct. 29. As he wrote, “This economy is a new reality.” When he wrote, “business practice have forever been changed,” I was reminded that all Hershey chocolate and all the jobs and machinery that manufacture that product are now in Mexico. Only office, workers and company officials remain in Pennsylvania. In another case reported in another newspaper, Oct. 29, “Whirlpool Corp Plans to cut 5,000 jobs, about 10 percent of the workforce in North America and Europe.” Although “the future may never look like the past” I am confident that Mr. Alexander would allow me, and even welcome me as a reader, to look into the future. The future is dim. We may for many years into the future endure the same sad conditions we endure today. This in part is due to our government that is merely a stagnant finger pointing group of arrogant, self-styled intellectuals enjoying a luxurious life style while they accomplish nothing except animosity among themselves. Mine is only a grassroots belief that only the American people will save this country and save themselves. This task is difficult for so many millions of people, who are able to live comfortably content with a job, and no concern for others. Adding to this difficulty a huge portion of the electorate do not understand or even comprehend what is happening to them. In recent history an entire country did not know what was happening until it was too late. This like situation occurred in Germany, prior to June 30, 1933, for on that day it was too late. In a short 24 hour period, National Socialist party officials killed 400 leading members of the only opposition party. And then there was one. There is no magic wand that is waved by any individual asking for unity, energy and excitement. We do however have high government officials acting like a children’s magician out of tricks.

Fresh Air families needed To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti: Tobacco use is the number ONE cause of PREVENTABLE death in the United States and around the world. According to the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, more than 2.8 millions kids under the age of 18 are current tobacco users. Adolescents are more susceptible to cigarette marketing than adults. 81.3 percent of youth smokers (12-17) prefer Marlboro, Camel, and Newport, three heavily advertised brands. A Journal of the National Caner Institute study found that teens were more likely to be influenced to smoke by cigarette marketing than by peer pressure. Nearly one-third of all youth smokers will inevitably due prematurely from smoking-caused disease. In the United States, tobacco use is estimated to kill about 443,000 people per year which is more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders, suicides and fires combined. We need to address the impact tobacco marketing has on our youth and preventing them from becoming another generation of smokers. Visit or for more information. Crystal M.

Ti VFW holds meeting

During November, many families in Essex County are thankful for something special – the gift of their friendship with a New York City child. Through the Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Town program, local families open their hearts and homes to inner-city children as volunteer hosts for up to two weeks during the summer. By volunteering as a host family for summer 2012, the spirit of Thanksgiving can continue in your home throughout the year. One child explained what the Fresh Air experience means to her. “I look forward to seeing my family all year long, especially my summer sister,” she said. “We spend every day of my visit outside together.” Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, non-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2011, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and into Canada. Additionally, 3,000 children attended five Fund camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The fund’s year round camping program serves 2,000 young people each year. By looking ahead to summer 2012, give back in a very important way. For more information about hosting a Fresh Air child, contact Marion Sullivan at 802-877-3028 or The Fresh Air Fund at 800-367-0003. Visit the Fund’s website at

To the Times of Ti: The V.F.W. Post 146 of Ticonderoga held its regular monthly meeting of the post on Monday, Nov. 1. Commander Rick Bennett opened the meeting at 6 p.m. with nine members present. We were saddened to learn of the death of our WWII member Vincent Jones of Hague and the grievous injury of Dayton Dedrick, while felling a tree. Drawing was held for our quilt raffle. Audrey Provancha won the beautiful quilt knitted by the daughter ’s of the American Revolution for benefit of heating costs of our building. The gun rifle, a 306 Savage hunting rifle, was won by Tom Duval of Moriah. Mr. Dale St. Louis, our newest member, a transfer life member from Connecticut and also past state commander of that state, drew the lucky numbers. We wish to thank everyone who took part in our rifle raffle and everyone who purchased chances, gave donation and did the selling. Also, the senior citizens are now holding their daily meals at our building. They did a wonderful job of decorating the room and looks very appealing. We are so pleased seeing our building being used and are in hopes school children can soon meet there and learn about what the Veterans of Foreign Wars are all about.

lot has changed at Crown Point Central over the past 10 years or so. The current administration, led by Mrs. Shari Brannock, has brought changes to Crown Point Central that we can all be proud of. A cadre of excellent teachers, hard working staff members, a supportive board combined with the excellent leadership of the administrative team, have brought Crown Point Central into the limelight even at the national level. It wasn’t that long ago when Crown Point Central was on the state “need of improvement” list and was in danger of being taken over by the state education department. Crown Point can now boast of being designated as a high performing school, four years in a row! In 2005, as you may know, Crown Point Central School was chosen in 2005 as a Model School for America’s Choice, an educational partner with the National Center on Education and the Economy. In addition another national organization, CFES (College for Every Student) has recognized Crown Point as a School of Distinction for its staff and student leadership and its outstanding portfolio filled with Early College Awareness and Mentoring activities. What makes this even more impressive is that it has been accomplished in the face of declining revenues from the state, all the while maintaining very moderate tax increases for the taxpayers. A lot has changed in Crown Point Central and we can all be proud of our achievements. However, change doesn’t come easy. An extraordinary amount of work has gone into what has been accomplished, and now we are moving on to the next big challenge. It mostly involves the issue of bullying. Bullying itself is not a new issue and it isn’t just an issue at Crown Point Central. If you have been watching the news lately, it is now a major topic of concern at the national level. The more one studies the issue the more complex it becomes. Bullying isn’t just the big kid stealing lunch money from the little kid and threatening to beat him up if he squeals. It is name calling, it is the fans yelling at a ref, it is the parent yelling at his child for running too slow to first base, it is the husband berating his wife with harsh words or vise versa, it is the parent going to school and demanding that they get their way using foul language and raised voices to try and intimidate a teacher or administrator. It could even be a teacher scolding a child because he tattled about a bullying situation! Ever since Columbine, the reality of bullying has come under scrutiny from law enforcement, educational leaders, and a great variety of university studies trying to understand the problem, the implications and how to deal with it. As a result of all this concern, a variety of programs have evolved specifically designed to deal with bullying at the school level. Our school is currently involved in such a program. It is a very complex program and it involves participation by the entire school. The Olweus Bullying Program has the support of the school board. The end result of this program will be a safer and happier environment for all of our students, and perhaps less stress for our teachers and staff! As mentioned before, change is never easy, and many questions are being asked about the current program. I encourage anyone with questions to contact the school to discuss the program with a member of the bullying committee, the principal or the superintendent. Thank you for your continued support of our school! Michael St. Pierr e is pr esident of the Cr own Point Central School board of education.

A group of Ticonderoga Central School District staff members joined family and friends of Colleen Ashline in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Queensbury recently. Dressed in pink, more than 1,000 people walked for breast cancer for all the special people in their lives who have been affected by this disease. Over $80,000 was raised, more than $3,500 by the ticonderoga walkers. Taking part were, back from left, Paula Besson, Maureen Padula, Michelle Eggleston, Anita, Mary Jo Gallagher, Abby Gallagher, Catherine Dushane, Joan Defayette (survivor), Nancy Rich, Kathy Moore, Mary Beth Karkoski, Wendy Shaw (survivor), Shirley Farrey (survivor); front, Zoe Eggleston, Julie MacAlpine, Colleen Ashline (survivor), Denise Smith, Barb Cossey, Sara Dorsett, Jen Porter, Marcy Scheisser, Carrie Scheisser, Diane LaFrance, Shelly Young and Lynn Sawyer.

To Ticonderoga Community for your kind words and sympathy. For your quiet reassurance or hugs, for all of the things you did in the way I have come to appreciate so much. I say thank you. I treasure each individual expression of God’s goodness that you have shown to my family as we celebrated the life of my mother, Emily Vergenia Harrison. Love, Pam and Walter


by Jean Arleen Breed Just one day to honor them, the ones who fought for us. Just one day is not enough to say the things we must. Thank you for your sacrifice, thank you for your heart. You put it all out on the line; you knew just where to start. You had to leave your family here, the ones you love so much. They stayed behind and did their part; you tried to stay in touch. The days, weeks, months, and years you were so far from home. We thought of you, we cheered you on, no matter where you roamed. Everyone put something in that box we sent to you. So many people pitched right in to make sure that you knew. We couldn’t go and fight the war, but we could help you out. Every time we sent a box, I hope you heard us shout. When you came home, we were so glad, one more of ours back here. I hope somehow you heard all the voices that gave a happy cheer. So thank you all from all of us, who loved each one of you. It’s time we said it - we’re proud of you, and we just hope you knew. 78704

Hague Oktoberfest a success Event turns a profit By Fred Herbst HAGUE — The third annual Hague Oktoberfest was a success, according to organizers. The event attracted nearly 1,000 people and realized a $2,447 profit. It also collected cash and food donations for the Hague Food Pantry.

Saturday the 2011 Oktoberfest included the award-winning Fritz’s Polka Band from Verona. Again there was the beer tent with several seasonal brews and shopping at the expanded vendor fair. There was also a children’s activity tent for pumpkin painting, bobbing for apples, the bouncy house and other fall favorites. There was adult contests, such as the keg toss and the Miss Oktoberfest crown that went to the woman who could run the fastest and spill the least liquid from eight beer steins. To wrap up Oktoberfest weekend, the Rev. Bruce Tamlin of Silver Bay presided over a non-denominational service on Sunday morning under the tent. Hague Oktoberfest was sponsored by the town and businesses of Hague.

A one-day event in the past, the Hague Oktoberfest expanded to include Friday evening this year. That was key to the event’s success, according to Graham Bailey, Oktoberfest chairman. “Another factor for the financial success was the nearly 200 people that attended the Friday evening portion of the event,” Bailey said in his report to the Hague town board. “It not only added significant revenue from beer sales, but cost very little since the tents were no additional cost for the additional time. People who attended Friday evening also were responsible for cash donations and five boxes of food for the Hague Food Pantry.” Bailey reported about 200 people attended on Friday and another 700 came to the Saturday event. Oktoberfest concluded with a Sunday church service that drew about 30 people. He noted nearly 50 percent of the people surveyed were from outside the Hague-Ticonderoga area. Bailey said the success of Oktoberfest is the result of hard work and support. “I would first like to thank the (town) board for its support of the event and would also like to give a special thanks to the members of the Hague highway department for their valuable assistance throughout the weekend,” he said. “The success of the event was due to the hard work by all of the other members of the Oktoberfest committee — Jack Bast, Carolyn Close, Dick Gladu, Tom Haskell, Rudy Meola, Linda Mury, Carol Pittman, Steve Ramant, Neil Rypkima and Donna Wotton. Additional thanks go out to all the volunteers from the community, the seniors, Rotary and Kiwanis.” Since the expanded Oktoberfest was a success, Bailey said the committee plans to continue it. “It is the committee’s intention to continue the three-day Oktoberfest weekend, but change the date of the Hague Oktoberfest to the third Saturday in September to avoid conflicts with other events,” he said. This fall the Oktoberfest featured the local band Calamity Rock and dancing on Friday evening. The beer tent was open for business and food vendors served festival foods, burgers and dogs, and soft drinks.

Ti woman wins Vermont culinary award TICONDEROGA — A Ticonderoga woman has been recognized for her culinary skills. Mountain View Center, a Genesis HealthCare skilled nursing facility, has announced Deborah Mackey of Ticonderoga and the dietary team were recognized as Food Service Director of the Year and Dietary Team of the Year, respectively, by the Vermont Health Care Association. The awards were presented at the Vermont Health Care Association’s annual convention. “Deb has been with us for only two and a half years yet she has completely revolutionized our menu and the way our center ap-

proaches food service,” stated Mountain View Center Administrator Judy Morton. “Residents are enjoying a whole new dining experience thanks to the talents of Deborah Mackey and her staff.” Prior to joining Genesis, Mackey owned a restaurant and catering business in Ticonderoga. “I’ve been in every aspect of the food service industry over the past 40 years,” Mackey said. “From waitressing, to purchasing, to management, to owning my own business. I’ve found my true love in serving the senior community.” At the convention, the Mountain View dietary team participated in a “super chef”


competition. The secret mandatory ingredient was apples and the Mountain View team took the first place prize with Mackey’s fruit pizza recipe. Mackey and her team have recently introduced a new, always available, restaurant style menu. A variety of breakfast options are offered all day, deli and grilled sandwich specials and a selection of dinner entrees are available. Homemade side dishes and desserts are the added bonus. Mackey also hosts weekly cooking demonstrations and monthly food forums to provide an interactive venue for all interested residents and family members.

Ti Food Pantry readying for winter By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Food Pantry is preparing for its peak season. With holidays and cold weather approaching, the demand for food increases, according to officials. “We do see new folks quite often,” said Margaret Beuerlein, pantry director, “and with the heating season about to happen we’ll no doubt see more.” The Ticonderoga pantry is a busy place. “We see between 85 and 100 families per month and have for about three to four years,” Beuerlein said. “Every since gas went up to about $4.00 and, of course, heating oil went up with it. This caused a true hardship for many. “Many of our people, but not all, use food stamps,” she said. “With the price of food going higher each day, the food stamps don’t

November 12, 2011

go as far as they used to. We serve people of all ages, of course, have quite a few families with children and quite a few seniors.” Some area food pantries, like the Moriah Food Pantry, are struggling to meet demand. “Our supply is holding,” Beuerlein said. “We do have a cut back in what we can order from the Regional Food Bank, for the same reason. They are serving more people all of the time. Thankfully, we’re doing quite well and do receive wonderful community support.” The Ticonderoga Food Pantry got a boost Oct. 14 when the Ti Elks hosted a pancake supper to benefit the local food shelf. Located in the basement of the First United Methodist Church at 1045 Wicker St., the pantry is sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Clergy Association. It’s a non-denominational service open 11 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The pantry is open to Ticonderoga and Putnam residents and follows federal income guidelines. Those guidelines start at $20,000 a year for a single person and go up to $68,000 for a family of eight. All food pantry information is strictly confidential. People can come to the pantry once a month to get three days — nine meals — food. Besides helping feed families, the pantry responds to local emergencies such as fires and floods.

County set to move forward with Horace Nye Resolution sets course for potential sale/lease of county nursing home

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — A packed Old Courthouse at the Essex County Government Center watched as the supervisors gave their opinions. There were some rounds of applause, some mumbling from the back rows, and the occasional loud moan as the 18 supervisors discussed the resolution that would allow the county to enter into an agreement with Marcus and Millichap to seek the potential sale or lease of the Horace Nye Nursing Home in Elizabethtown. When the talking was over, the supervisors voted 2,065 (72.6 percent) to 778 in favor of the motion, easily earning the two-thirds weighted vote needed for the resolution to carry. Many supervisors who supported the resolution said that in the current financial climate, every possible cost-saving opportunity had to be looked at. “I am not in favor of selling the home, but I am in favor of this resolution,” Keene Supervisor William “Bill” Ferebee said. “It only says that we are going to test the waters, and we have to test the waters.” “I think the key words in the resolution are ‘acceptable to the board of supervisors,’” Newcomb Supervisor George Canon said. “The question is not do we stay open or closed, the question is do we look at all of our options,” Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery-Corey said. Some supervisors tried to explain that their votes were not a matter of personal interest, but the interest of the county and the taxpayers. “There is a lot of anger that is already being focused on this board because of this, but the county did not ask for the 2 percent cap,” Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston said. “This is the first of a lot of very difficult, tough decisions. We didn’t create this, but we are going to have to be the ones that have to live with it. Sadly, everything is on the table. I wish people would not take this personally, but they are going to.” “This has become a very polarizing issue,” Lewis Supervisor David Blades said. “For me this is a very personal issue, but I believe that my responsibility goes further then my personal needs. I’m not saying that in the end, I would support the sale or lease. I need to get the full information, and I think that is what we all need to do.” “I think it is really unfortunate that there is so much negativity,” Westport Supervisor Daniel “Dan” Connell said. “All we are doing is looking at if there is a way of running this at a reduced cost to the taxpayers of this county. I think that we owe it to the taxpayers of Essex County to explore all of our options.” “This is not about quality of nursing care, it’s not about the people,” North Elba Supervisor Robert “Roby” Politi said. “We have made a lot of very poor business and leadership decisions over the years at Horace Nye and all those decisions point to one thing, that the county should not be in the nursing home business. I know that we will still have costs moving forward, but that does not justify us losing


more money.” “It has no reflection on the quality of care,” Elizabethtown Supervisor Noel Merrihew III, said. “The game has changed, and it is unfortunate.” “These are hard economic times and these are tough decisions, but that is what we are elected to do,” County Chairman and Jay Supervisor Randall “Randy” Douglas said. Those against the move said they did not see either how it would save the county money or if it was something taxpayers wanted done. “I think we should be looking at what we can do to improve that facility and not looking to get rid of it,” Willsboro Supervisor Edward “Ed” Hatch said. “This will not have an impact on the 2012 budget because this is going to be a long process if we vote in favor of this,” Moriah Supervisor Thomas “Tom” Scozzafava said. “I know everything that I have read all points to the simple fact that private nursing homes want private pay. Most of our residents are Medicaid, so what is going to happen to these people. It’s a domino effect. I can think of 100 good reasons why we should not even be considering this and they are over there in the home right now. I think it’s a step in the wrong direction.” “I see no benefit of getting rid of the nursing home if you have to attach terms and conditions to it,” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald “Gerry” Morrow said. “I think the taxpay-

ers of this county want to pay for a nursing home.” “I feel that there are a lot of facts that we do not have and there will be a burden on our taxpayers either way,” Essex Supervisor Sharon Boisen said. “Everybody generally cares about this,” North Hudson Supervisor Robert Dobie, who originally voted for the resolution in the Oct. 31 Ways and Means Committee meeting, said. “I have gone back and forth on it and I am now going to support that we keep the home.” County Manager Daniel Palmer said that, with the resolution passed, the board would now come up with the terms and conditions of the sale that would be agreed upon by Marcus and Millichap before official advertisements were to go out for the facility. “This is the retention of an agent,” Politi said. “We will meet with them to discuss terms and conditions that are acceptable to all of us and then move forward.” “If they find a willing buyer for $4 million and we don’t take it, then we have to pay the commission,” Palmer said. “If they find one for $3 million and you don’t take it, then you do not have to take the commission. Broker fees will be applied if they find a willing buyer and terms.” “If we can put conditions in the agreement that can save jobs and pay, then that would be the best of both worlds,” Crown Point Supervisor Bethany Kosmider said. “Let’s make a sound decision with the right information.”

Cub Scouts from Ticonderoga Pack 72 and their guests visited North River in the Adirondacks recently to explore the historic Barton Mines, one of the world’s largest deposits of garnet. The mines were established in 1878 and garnet is still mined from a deposit nearby. While at the mines, the Scouts were able to hunt for gems themselves and returned with several pounds of the ore in which garnet is formed.

Election 2011 from page 1 campaign. “I want to try to get government back to normal; try to institute some trust,” he said. “I’m glad it’s over.” The election capped a bitter campaign that split the community. Kosmider ’s first term has been marked by a controversial decision to eliminate the town’s elected three-member board of assessors in favor of a sole, appointed assessor. In July, the Crown Point town board voted 3-2 to eliminate the elected assessors, effective Dec. 31. Kosmider joined with trustees DuShane and Bob Patnode in voting for the change. Trustees Mazurowski and Tom Walters opposed it. Supporters of a sole assessor claim the move will save the town about $18,000 a year, noting the change was recommended by the town budget reduction committee. Opponents feel the current assessors are doing a good job, that money can be saved in other areas of the budget and people have a right to elect assessors. The Crown Point town board’s decision to eliminate the elected assessors divided the community. Some support the assessors, others support the decision and still others believe the issue should have gone to a public referendum. Assessors Carl Ross, Stephen Mackey and Glen Porter rallied against the move and organized supporters to defeat Kosmider and Dushane in their re-election bids. The assessors and their supporters backed Harrington for supervisor along with Peters and Mazurowski for town board. The Interested Taxpayers of Crown Point formed to support the assessor decision and to back Kosmider and Dushane in their re-election efforts. Signs went up criticizing the “gang of three” — Kosmider, DuShane and Patnode — who voted for the change. Other signs backed Kosmider and DuShane. Town board meetings have become raucous. Letters to the editor have been published. Each side has placed newspaper ads. Discussions — sometimes fights — have taken place on streets. Harrington said the election hinged on the assessor debate. “This, in effect, was the referendum on the assessor deci-

sion,” Harrington said. “It shows the dislike people had for the way the assessor issue was handled. “Sometimes democracy is messy, but it works,” he added. “We all had input in one way or another.” Kosmider agreed the assessor issue was key to the election. She said the assessors misled the community about the change. “I hope they (the assessors) won’t put the town through this any longer,” Kosmider said of the anger. “The signs need to come down. The silliness needs to stop.” Kosmider said she is confident she has acted in the best interests of Crown Point during her tenure. “I’ll get a good night’s sleep,” she said. “I think we accomplished a lot the past two years. I hope the town doesn’t regress. I really want to thank the people who have supported me.”

Schroon students to host blood drive Nov. 16 By Fred Herbst SCHROON LAKE — Schroon Lake Central School students are asking for “the gift of life.” The school’s senior class will host an American Red Cross blood drive Wednesday, Nov. 16, 1 to 6 p.m. in the school auditorium. “By donating blood you can actually help save the lives of up to three people,” senior Katelyn Rose said. “Currently only about 5 percent of the eligible population donates blood, but in order to meet the constant need, I am personally asking you to take advantage of this opportunity to give the gift of life.” Rose hopes the entire school community as well as the community at large will participate in the blood drive. “In order to reach our blood drive goal this

school year it is crucial that we have the support and participation of our faculty, and even our parents,” Rose implored faculty and staff. “So please rise to the challenge by not only encouraging your eligible students to donate, but also by setting an appointment to donate yourself.” To schedule an appointment to donate blood call Rose at 532-0590. Currently only three out of every 100 people in America donate blood, although most people are eligible to give. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good general health. Red Cross staff and volunteers will sign donors in and go over basic eligibility and donation information. Donors will read information about donating blood and will be asked to show a donor card, driver's license or other form of identification. Donors will then answer some questions during a private and confi-

dential interview about their health history and places they have traveled. Red Cross staff will check a donor ’s temperature, pulse, blood pressure and hemoglobin level present in a sample of blood. The actual donation takes about 8-10 minutes, during which donors will be seated comfortably. The process is safe and sterile. Red Cross staff and volunteers will be available to answer any questions. After donating, donors receive a snack and something to drink. They can leave the site after 10-15 minutes and continue with normal daily activities.

Katelyn Rose and Sarah Desrosier post flyers advertising a blood drive at Schroon Lake Central School. The school’s senior class will host an American Red Cross blood drive Wednesday, Nov. 16, 1 to 6 p.m. in the school auditorium.

Energy meetings planned Nov. 14 SCHROON LAKE — The town of Schroon will sponsor a series of “Energy Info Meetings” to provide information about free and low-cost energy services to local residents and small businesses. Sessions for homeowners will be held on Monday, Nov. 14, at the Schroon Lake Senior Center (1108 Main St.) at 10 a.m. and at the Schroon Lake town hall (15 Leland Ave.) at 6 p.m. A session targeted to small businesses will be held at the town hall at 1 p.m. the same day. “This is a great first step if

you’ve thought about making your home or small business more efficient but were not sure how to get things started,” said Jennifer Monroe of the Community Power Network o New York. Speakers from New York’s EmPower and Green Jobs, Green New York Programs will be on hand to share the latest information about free and lowcost energy services available to residences and small businesses at all income levels. Both programs feature an easy application process. Volunteers will be on hand for

those who want to apply. Households that qualified for HEAP should bring a copy of their most recent HEAP approval letter. Households with incomes above HEAP guidelines should bring a 12-month summary of the electric and heating usage for the building. The town of Schroon is working with the Minerva-based Community Power Network of New York State to bring this program to community residents. For information call Monroe at 251-2525 or Email

Moriah food bank feeling strain Pantry volunteers remain grateful By Katherine Clark MINEVILLE — The Moriah Food Pantry is seeing major cutbacks to its donations and increased number of patrons this year. After storms devastated parts of the North Country and a downward economy, the food pantry is left with less resources on the shelves. “We are currently in need of food as our supplies are very low and there has been an increase in applicants. Unfortunately, the many weather disasters of the past few months have caused a sharp decrease in government commodities,” Diane Redman, volunteer for the Moriah Food Pantry, said in a press release. Sue Morse, manager of the Moriah food pantry, said last year the pantry purchased up to 50,000 pounds of food with money donated and through grants the pantry has received. This year she worries the funds won’t be coming in from the state to meet the demands of the pantry. “I am applying for whatever grants are available, written to local politicians to see if there is anything out there for local emer-

gency food shelves, collected bottles for redemption centers and posted food boxes outside local markets, doing everything we can and hoping it will help,” Morse said. Last year the pantry served about 1,000 families regularly. This year Morse said the demand for assistance has risen about 25 percent, and money available has dropped significantly. “Due to economic crisis we have seen an increase in the number of families we serve to and due to cut backs for grants and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) funds being needed in so many places it makes it hard to survive,” Morse said. Though the times are difficult, Morse said she can’t thank the people who help by giving time, money and food donations enough and continues to give thanks to those individuals and organizations that continue to donate and give what they can for the food pantry. “We are in dire need, but we are so grateful to all those that continue to help us in anyway they can. It is truly a wonderful thing to see,” Morse said. “It will tug at your heart to see people in such need, but the people are so grateful and it feels good to be able to help.” The food pantry is open once a week, every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon. Anyone interested in receiving aid from the

pantry should show proof of residency. To make a donation to the Moriah Food Pantry, checks can be sent or dropped off at the town hall, 14 Park Place, Port Henry 12974. To learn more about making a donation to the Moriah Food Pantry for informa-

tion on receiving aid call Redman 546-3378. “When the community helps it is a snowball effect, We’re very lucky and grateful to the town,” Redman said. “The food pantry is possible because of people who donate.”

Schroon, Moriah join pilot program to reduce energy consumption SCHROON LAKE — Moriah and Schroon are part of a pilot program to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint, intended to save money while creating or retaining jobs. The Community Energy Efficiency Management Project of the Wild Center in Tupper Lake includes just the towns of Moriah and Schroon so far, but project managers are talking with other municipalities about participating in the two-year effort. During the program, the towns will inventory energy use at municipally owned structures, transportation and residential buildings, write a plan to identify and prioritize energy-saving opportunities, implement energy-saving projects and track energy savings. The group called the Adirondack Climate and Energy Action Plan developed the model to support communities’ economic needs through energy-efficient incentives and programs. The Energy Efficiency Management project is funded through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Develop-

ment and co-implemented by the Wild Center and the Community Power Network of New York State, based in Olmstedville. There are currently just 20 fully-certified energy-auditing businesses in the 6 million-acre Adirondack Park. In addition, there is a twoyear backlog of low-income homeowners in the region requesting weatherization assistance. The Community Power Network addresses the energy needs of families and communities to improve energy efficiency and affordability for low-income households. Improving the ability of North Country communities to access New York's energy programs and opportunities is also a focus for the private consulting corporation. “We believe that the Community Energy pilot provides an important new program model for rural areas like ours,” said Network President Sue Montgomery Corey. Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava said he and the Moriah town council wanted to save both money and energy for their constituents. “As we have progressed, we have found that

with very little up-front expenditure, we can save not only energy but also dollars that will more than pay for the changes.,” he said. Project advisers will provide training, publicize successes and help build capacity needed to realize energy-saving opportunities, Ratcliffe said. They will also help communities invite businesses, nonprofit groups, schools and residents to learn more about available energy-efficiency programs, she said. “After my mother passed away, I decided to replace the 1950s furnace in her old house,” said Moriah resident Cathy Robarts, who at-

tended a project outreach meeting this summer. “I paid for a new high-efficiency boiler, which cost about $1,000 and got my investment back in three years, including $200 of repairs on fuel lines and related needs. The majority of the savings came in the form of oil costs.” Adirondack Climate and Energy is a partnership of the Wild Center and 30 other institutions in the region. The group works through existing organizations around the area to implement a strategy to enable Adirondack residents to improve energy usage and save money. There is no cost to participate.

New Lake Champlain Bridge opens with ceremony Vt. Gov. Shumlin, NY Lt. Gov. Duffy help cut ribbon By Andy Flynn CROWN POINT — Hundreds of people lined up to cross the new $76 million Lake Champlain Bridge Monday, Nov. 7 — bicyclists, walkers, runners and, finally, the motorists. First they had to get past New York Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and a group of VIPs giving speeches and cutting a golden ribbon. Once the hour-long ceremony was over, around 3:30 p.m., the podium was removed, the white chairs stacked against the guard rail, and the crowds streamed across the bridge to Vermont. It had been more than two years since the 1929 bridge closed here on Oct. 16, 2009. Commuters and visitors had to take a free ferry to get between Crown Point, N.Y. and Addison, Vt. when the service opened on Feb. 1, 2010. The loss of the old bridge was described multiple times as “an inconvenience.” While politicians lamented the old bridge — remembered well by more than a dozen ’29ers who had been at the original Aug. 26, 1929 bridge opening — Nov. 7, 2011 was the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Lake Champlain. “I want to point out that this is day one,” said Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh. “We’re going to count forward from here.” The concept of linking the two states with a new bridge was a common theme among the speakers. “When I looked out, as I was coming today, I saw the hands of the community, of the state of New York and the federal government reaching out to one another to bring New York and Vermont back together again,” Owens said. While some spoke of the bridge as a metaphor — connecting the common values of Vermonters and New Yorkers in the Champlain Valley — others described it as a transportation link essential to the everyday lives of residents. “It’s more than concrete and steel,” said New York Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, R-Willsboro. “It is the link that

the North Country has to the closest trauma unit, and many ambulances run back and forth across this bridge.” Between Oct. 16, 2009 and Feb. 1, 2010, people had to drive around the old bridge site to get to the other side, a commute of more than 100 miles for work, hospital visits, vacations, etc. While the absence of a bridge was a barrier, the presence of a bridge is being seen as a step toward normalcy. “It’s a place where fire companies run back and forth between Addison, Vt. and Crown Point and conversely from Addison to help each other,” Sayward said. “It’s farmers who have to cross this bridge to feed their cattle and to get their crops. It’s people traveling into New England, it’s New Englanders traveling into New York ... Today, your life begins again.” Shumlin marveled at the speed of the bridge’s construction. “This is the best example of government serving people and getting things done that you’ll find anywhere in the nation,” Shumlin said. Duffy concurred. “If you were to turn on the media and the news tonight and any story on any given day, you hear about what’s wrong with government. You hear all the bad things that are going on in this world,” Duffy said. “And today, we get to celebrate what is right ... to be where we are today in literally two years’ time is nothing short of a miracle.” Other speakers included New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald; Sue Minter, deputy secretary of the Vermont Agency of Transportation; Vermont State Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes; Jonathan McDade, New York division administrator for the Federal Highway Administration; Karen Hennessy (New York) and Lorraine Franklin (Vermont), co-chairs of the Lake Champlain Bridge Community; Crown Point Town Supervisor Bethany Kosmider; and New York Sen. Betty Little, RQueensbury. “I don’t know that you can have a better bridge,” Little said. The new Network Tied Arch Bridge is a steel structure with an arch along the center span. It was designed by Ted Zoli and built by Flatiron Construction. The bridge’s design

makes it safer than the previous structure and will ensure at least a 75-year service life. Key bridge components are designed to be easily replaceable to reduce maintenance costs. Travel lanes are 11 feet wide, with 5-foot shoulders that will help accommodate larger trucks and farm vehicles, as well as provide ample room for bicyclists. Sidewalks are featured on both sides of the bridge.

Concerts to deliver message By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — Crown Point and Ticonderoga students will take part in concerts with a message. Hall Pass, a professional music troupe, will perform at Ticonderoga Middle School Monday, Nov. 21, 1 to 2:30 p.m. It will repeat its performance Tuesday, Nov. 22, 1 to 3 p.m. at Crown Point Central School. “The Hall Pass Tour is exactly that — a concert series,” said Holly Monelle Murchison, the Hall Pass co-creator, tour manager and host. “We hope to inspire more students and concert attendees, in general, to consider higher education and give them the spark and confidence to actively pursue their dreams.” Murchison compared Hall Pass to a pep rally. “Have you ever been to a pep rally?,” she asked. “See how excited everyone gets about the big homecoming game? Well, that’s what the Hall Pass Tour is, the pep rally. And college is the big homecoming game. The tour is a series of high energy, K-12 after-school concerts at under-served schools that use music to advance access to higher education and provide a space for communities to support their youth.” The Hall Pass visits to Ti and Crown Point are being sponsored by the College For Every Student Program. Some students will actually perform during the concert events. Hall Pass held auditions in Ticonderoga and Crown Point Nov. 7.

Student performers were selected to serve as opening acts for the concerts. “We allow students to take the lead,” Murchison said. “At each school, we hold auditions and select students to either open for our headliners, co-host or co-DJ, and share their college and career aspirations to motivate their peers to dream bigger. We also dish out some cool giveaways, present a variety of awards to students and faculty and provide useful college resources.” Elaine Dixon, Crown Point principal, is looking forward to the Hall Pass performance. “We first learned about the Hall Pass Tour through CFES,” Dixon said. “We thought it sounded like a lot of fun and are all well aware that we have many talented students here at Crown Point.” The Hall Pass concert in Crown Point will help kick off the school’s bullying prevention program. “We hope to have several things accomplished by having the tour at Crown Point,” Dixon sad. “First of all, it gives our talented students a chance to shine and audition with a professional company. The tour group asked all of the students to try to send a positive message with their performance and uplift someone else, our hope is that the entire day will be uplifting and encourage our students to be the best they can be. In combining the two programs, we hope that at the very least the students see the connection with success in life and treating others with dignity and kindness.” Bruce Tubbs. Ticonderoga Ele-

mentary-Middle School principal, learned about Hall Pass a year ago. “Last year we had the chance to have the lead singer, Janelle Bechdol, visit our school to do a talk about her journey through college as a music major, her experiences as a contestant on American Idol and her trip to Hollywood, and her work she is doing as the education program manager for Ernst and Young LLP,” Tubbs said. “At that time we had her do a short performance for the middle school. She and some of her music friends have now put together a program called the Hall Pass Tour, which combines music and leadership as students look toward planning for college.” Tubbs is looking forward to the Ti show. “I think that this will be an opportunity for our students to not only perform with some professional musicians, but to get an extremely positive message about looking toward and planning for their future beyond high school,” he said. “In addition, we have done a great deal of work with CFES through mentoring using college athletics to connect with our students. That has been very successful, however, using music we will be able to reach even more students in getting the message out to start planning for college. I think it is very important that the planning process begin as early as possible and using the talents of the Hall Pass Tour will be both engaging and educational for our students.” Murchison said the Hall Pass crew is excited about visiting Ticonderoga and Crown Point.

Hall Pass, a professional music troupe, will perform at Ticonderoga Middle School Monday, Nov. 21, 1 to 2:30 p.m. It will repeat its performance Tuesday, Nov. 22, 1 to 3 p.m. at Crown Point Central School. The group includes, back from left, Janelle “j.RENEÉ” Bechdol, co-creator and headlining singer; Holly Monelle Murchison, the Hall Pass cocreator, tour manager and host; front, Jamal “ScienZe” Monsanto, headlining emcee; Jemar “Meezy” Souza, assistant tour manager and digital marketer; and Michael “DJ Kraff” Lawrence, tour DJ. “We had our sights set on reaching rural schools and Crown Point and Ticonderoga are a perfect fit,” she said. “From what we've seen in their work as College For Every Student schools, they’re always eager to participate in activities that strengthen their school culture and benefit their students. That desire to become better and constantly work on improving made it an easy decision for us.” Hall Pass will visit 16 schools across Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts and New York this fall. The traveling troupe includes Murchison; Janelle “j.RENEÉ” Bechdol, co-creator and headlining

singer; Jemar “Meezy” Souza, assistant tour manager and digital marketer; Jamal “ScienZe” Monsanto, headlining emcee; and Michael “DJ Kraff” Lawrence, tour DJ. “One of us is the first in our family to receive a college degree, three of us are proud college graduates, all of us were under-served students from low-income families who went on to attend college,” Murchison said. “We’re passionate about music and education and we built the tour to preserve the arts and assure that the students who are where we once were, have ample opportunities to shine.”

Sentinel defense shuts down Moriah in 22-0 win Ticonderoga will meet Cambridge in the opening round of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D football tournament. The Sentinels punched their ticket to the state playoffs by winning the Section VII-X championship with a 22-0 thrashing of archrival Moriah Nov. 4. The victory improved Ti to 6-4 on the season and gave it the school’s first section crown since 2007 — when the Sentinels advanced to the state championship game. Moriah, which had won the last three Section VII-X titles, finished the campaign at 28. Ticonderoga’s defense totally dominated the game against Moriah. Led linebackers Ryan Borho and Dennis Towne, the Ticonderoga defense held Moriah without a first down until the final two minutes of the game. The Vikings gained just 15 yards in the first half and 64 for the game. Quarterback Landon Cross was sacked three times and picked off twice, both by Nate Lenhart. The Sentinels' defensive front of Corey King, Jacob Demarais, Steve Bussey and Cody Henthorn was more than stout. Moriah went three-and-out the first five times it had the ball. The Sentinels got on the scoreboard late in the second quarter when Miles Austin broke loose for a 36-yard touchdown run for a 6-0

lead. Ti extended its lead on the first possession of the second half. Jay Hebert’s 7-yard run capped a Ti drive. Austin added the twopoint conversion for a 14-0 advantage. Borho added a 10-yard touchdown run up the middle early in the fourth quarter. Lenhart’s two-point conversion pass to Joe Gonyeau gave Ti its final margin. Borho paced Ti on offense, running for 121 yards on 18 carries. Austin ram for 78 yards on 17 carries, while Hebert added 33 yards on 8 carries. Tom Ida managed 47 yards to lead Moriah. Skyler Saunders scored three touchdowns as Cambridge rolled to a 65-30 victory over Rensselaer. The victory gave the undefeated Indians (10-0) the Class D championship of the Section II Football Tournament. It is Cambridge's 12th title in 16 championship game appearances since 1992. Aaron Mulready rushed for 186 yards and a touchdown and Saunders added 152 yards and two scores for the Indians. Ethan English passed for two touchdowns, one to Saunders and one to Thomas Hemmerling. Rensselaer (8-2) made things interesting with two long touchdown plays in the first quarter to pull within 19-14, but the Indians pulled away with four unanswered touchdowns for a 46-14 halftime lead.

Unfortunately, cell phones provide a false sense of security, especially in the Adirondacks where service is often spotty. Although the travelers may have been lost or overdue, and without a map, compass, flashlight or matches; they were still able to call for pizza!

Tie one on

Always be prepared


combination of stiff winds and a few heavy frosts helped to knock the stuffing out of the North Woods, over the past week. As a result, the woods are now more open, and a hunter’s field of view is much wider, and extensive. These subtle changes won’t necessarily tip the odds in favor of the hunters, but they will likely allow more deer to be seen. Vermont Fish and Wildlife recently released the results of an interesting survey, which indicates the state’s efforts to recruit new hunters appears to be working. The survey revealed a retention rate of 69% among participating youth hunters., who have continued to maintain a presence in the fields and forests as adults. “Vermont’s special youth deer hunting weekend helps to ensure that young hunters get the quality training and experiences they need for lifelong participation,” explained Fish and Wildlife Hunter Education Coordinator Chris Saunders, in a news release. Hunter retention is of great concern to Fish and Wildlife agencies, all across the country. Vermont, with a demonstrated success rate of better than two out of three young hunters is obviously doing something right.

Pack lite, but remember to pack a light

With darkness setting in, well before the evening news, now is an appropriate time for outdoor travelers to replace their flashlight batteries, before it is too late. Hunters, hikers and other woodland wanderers should be aware of the onset of autumn darkness, which occurs with alarming speed. The woods become dark almost immediately after sundown, and as a result, there is very little room for error on the return trip back to camp or to the trailhead. When it comes to flashlights, I’m redundant. I typically carry a headlamp, in addition to a small handheld flashlight and a micro-light on the zipper of my pack. There is no time to be looking around for a headlamp at the end of the day, as the woods turn into a pitch-black, obstacle course, Such situations can be avoided with the addition of an extra headlamp, or a small penlight, and remember to toss in some spare batteries.
