Ticonderoga to charge for summer youth activities in 2010 By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Parents who send their children to the Ticonderoga summer recreation program in 2010 will be charged a fee. The Ti town board has agreed the $75,000 program is too expensive for local taxpayers and should be funded by those who use it. “We will charge tuition for the program,” Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick said. “The tuition will be based on the school’s free and reduced lunch formula.” Families who qualify for free lunches at Ticonderoga Central School will not be charged for the five-week program. Families who qualify for reduced lunches at school will be charged $12.50 per child per week to attend the summer program. Families who do not qualify for the free or reduced lunch program will be charged $25 per child per week to attend. Ticonderoga’s summer recreation program, which serves children ages 5-13, includes a free breakfast and lunch along

Inter-Lakes Health limits visitors over health concerns TICONDEROGA — InterLakes Health is temporarily restricting visitors to the facility in an effort to keep patients, residents and staff healthy. The visiting precautions are being implemented because influenza and other respiratory viruses spread easily in small rooms and close quarters, and many people that have only minimal symptoms

or that may be recovering from influenza could still be infectious to patients, residents, and anyone with whom they come in contact, according to Inter-Lakes officials. Inter-Lakes Health continues its efforts to keep patients, residents and staff healthy by administering the influenza vaccine to all staff members who are required to be vacci-

nated and by closely monitoring and implementing the latest recommendations from state and federal health agencies. With Gov. David Paterson having declared the H1N1 influenza a pandemic public health emergency, Inter-Lakes Health is implementing the following temporary meas-

ures: • Effective immediately, and until further notice, no visitors under the age of 18 will be allowed to visit patients or residents in the hospital or nursing home, regardless of their health status; • All adult visitors must wash their hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer upon entering and leaving any pa-

Ticonderoga High School hosts career workshops for students TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga High School hosted its post secondary exploration day workshops for students recently. The half-day workshops were developed by a committee of teachers to showcase career and job training opportunities for students. An unique feature of these workshops was to invite Ticonderoga alumni to return to their high school and share information about training and skills needed for their prospective careers. As opposed to a traditional career fair-where students visit different tables to obtain cursory information about jobs and careers, post secondary exploration day allowed for three 40-minute workshops. Students were able to choose the workshops that were of interest to them and enroll in three workshops prior to the event. Presenters included Keith Bennett, Bob Palandrani and Roger Phinney, speaking for the Marine trades and MerCruiser School. Brian Mor-

gan brought information about New England Vocational and Technical School. Mark Buckley discussed wind turbine engineering and Bone Bayse shared outdoor recreation field and adventure sports. Len Cronin presented on forestry from Finch and Pruyn and Scott Moore discussed Local Union #773 for Pipefitters, Welders and Millwrights. Teleconferencing from Albany was Andy D’Agostino, and Matt Dreimiller led with construction management. Community professionals Shawn Hayes and Pam Nolan presented from the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union. Robin McGrath told students about owning a small business and Bob Dedrick explained the workings of the town of Ticonderoga. Heather Nadeau, Mark Mason, Evan Utter, Larry Turcotte and William Brannon discussed the career of a surveyor. Laura Murphy discussed restaurant management. Peter Reale presented careers

Christmas wish program taking applications By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — The Tiny Tim Christmas Wish Program is preparing for its 29th season in Ticonderoga. Tiny Tim applications are now available and can be obtained at 17 Mount Hope Avenue, Ticonderoga. For more information contact Helen Gibbs at 585-7429. Gibbs is the long-time head of the Tiny Tim Christmas Wish program, which provides gifts to needy children in the Ti-Putnam-Hague area. “This is my Christmas,” Gibbs said. “Since Ken (her husband) died, this is the way I celebrate Christmas. I’ll go to my daughter-in-law’s for Christmas dinner and I’ll enjoy it, but this is my Christmas.” Gibbs has been part of the Tiny Tim program for 19 years. Every year is special because of the people who are helped, she said. Once Gibbs was shopping in a local store when she was approached by a small girl.

“She said, ‘I know you’,” Gibbs recalled. “I assured her she didn’t, but she said, ‘You’re the lady who helps Santa Claus.’ It brought tears to my eyes.” Gibbs has a lot of stories like that. The Tiny Tim program started in 1980 when a group of Ticonderoga Central School teachers realized the need. The program grew to the point the teachers could no longer handle the demand. “In January of 1989 there was an article in the Times of Ti that the program was disbanding,” Gibbs recalled. “They just couldn’t do it any more; it had gotten too expensive. “It really bothered me when I thought about it, that there were so many kids who needed things,” she continued. “I made a call to see if I could help.” She became Tiny Tim chairwoman in 1995. There have been a lot of changes during the years. Tiny Tim no longer accepts or distributes used items and gifts are no longer wrapped.

And, Tiny Tim has grown. It started out giving away winter coats. Now each child gets six pair of socks, six sets of underwear, a jacket, ski pants, boots, clothing and toys. In 2009 year Tiny Tim served 73 families and 170 children. The record is 204 children served several years ago. It costs more than $6,000 a year to operate the Tiny Tim program, Gibbs said. The confidential program decides who gets holiday help using the school’s free and reduced lunch income guidelines, Gibbs explained. Parents must complete applications. That application includes questions about the children in the homes, such as clothing sizes and gender. Last year only two applications were rejected. The Tiny Tim Christmas Wish program only has four permanent members. Gibbs handles the paperwork. Stephanie Backus organizes the collection and distribution of gifts. Pat and David Cornell do the fund raising. Also helping are a host of community organizations, businesses and individuals who contribute to the program.

Ti chamber of commerce holds annual awards presentation TICONDEROGA — McDonald’s has been named Business of the Year by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce. The award was announced during the chamber ’s annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the Best Western Inn & Suites. “This is the time of year that we stop to honor all the people who give of themselves for the betterment of the town of Ticonderoga,” said Barb Brassard, chamber executive director. “About 100 volunteers were in attendance to enjoy a buffet of which area businesses generously donated the entrees.” Brassard said the choice of McDonald’s as Business of the Year is well-founded. “This year the Business of the Year award went to McDonald’s of Ticonderoga, a staunch supporter of not only the chamber but the community,” Brassard said. “McDonald’s donates consistently, hosts events, changed the community and assists with

town functions and events. Giving back to the community is a priority and recently a significant investment was made to improve the facility.” Accepting the award was the Hearburg family, Scott, Robin, and Hai Lee. Joyce Cooper received the Community Volunteer of the Year Award. “The award goes to a nonchamber member who has changed the community for the better by serving on committees, donating time and energy, and has worked effortlessly for the betterment of Ticonderoga,” Brassard explained. Cooper is the president of the Carillon Garden Club, Ticonderoga High School Alumni Association and the Kiwanis Club; secretary of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership; and serves on the Bicentennial Park Usage committee, the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership Design committee. She also chaired last summer ’s Waterfest and was in-

strumental in the building of the Ticonderoga Beach House. Matt Courtright, sales director of Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks, was named Chamber Volunteer of the Year. “The award is given to an individual that has been actively involved on the chamber board of directors, successfully co-chaired the annual chamber fundraising committee, participates in and assists with functions and events; shows spirit, enthusiasm and energy and is always positive,” Brassard said. The Special Volunteer Service Award went to JoAnn Geisel. She assisted with numerous chamber and community events and volunteers at the Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum. Presenting the award was her son, former TACC Director Joe Conway. Each volunteer received an engraved wooden box and pen set from Rathbun Jewelers.

Keep pressure on state DOT To the Times of Ti: I have been watching local news and have seen Tom Scozzafava say that the Essex County Board of Supervisors want to start a class action lawsuit against the state for not keeping the Lake Champlain Bridge in good repair. If they should win such a lawsuit, who do they think would provide the money for their award? We, the people, are the State of New York. That means that we will have to fill the purse from which a court award would come. Does that not seem like robbing Peter to pay Paul? What do

they plan to do with that award? Find the people who had to pay ferry fare that first week and reimburse them? Would they need receipts? Walk door to door to businesses and write them a check for lost customers if they can prove their loss? The time for the supervisors to get loud and angry and sit on the DOT steps in Albany is long past. Where were they 10 years ago? Five years ago? Sitting in a room passing a resolution on paper or banging on the doors of the State Capital? The horse is already out of the barn, no sense closing the door now. Let’s keep forward pressure on

DOT and work for the future. Keep communicating with them. Make your opinions known to them. Make sure that they hear us now. Betty Little and Teresa Sayward are working hard for us and will pass along anything that you have to say and keep you updated. I am looking forward to a new bridge in the same corridor as soon as possible and intend to keep calling and writing to all state agencies involved to make sure they don't think we have forgotten what is going on. Laurie Harvey Crown Point

Ti ferry staff appreciated To the Times of Ti: During this difficult time, when thousands of people have had their lives so impacted by the closing of the Crown Point Bridge, I would like to publically thank the people who are associated with the Ti Ferry. You all have gone out of your way to provide not only an essential service, but have done it with genuine concern and understanding for folks who have to travel from state to state to work at their jobs.

Denton Publications, Inc.

You gave us all a price break, you started operating the ferry at 5:30 so we could get to work on time, told us to have a good day and promised to be there to take us back home at night. You were indeed a welcome light in the midst of all this darkness. Bravo to each of you. If there is any award for the business with the biggest heart, you would win hands down. On behalf of myself and all the people in that long line of cars waiting in the dark every morning, thank you so much. We will never forget all you did for us. Jean Arleen Breed Crown Point

Another secret: Don’t believe everything you see


ne of the most common misconceptions about coupons is the item you buy must match the picture that appears on the face of the coupon. It’s true you can use thåe coupon to purchase the item that’s pictured. However, you want to pay close attention to the text on a coupon, too. After all, the text contains the precise information the coupon’s bar code is programmed to deliver at the checkout counter. Which brings us to this week’s tip.

Forget the photos, read the fine print

those. Look closely at the wording on these coupons. While the coupon may show a boxed or bagged variety of meat, the wording often spells out a wider deal, such as “$1 off 1 package of [brand] sliced meat, or 1lb. of [brand] sliced meats at the deli.” These coupons are a great way to save on freshsliced meats of the same brand at the deli counter. Ready for another tip? This one involves brand loyalty. While we all have favorite brands of things, our brand loyalty can cost us in the long run if we aren’t shopping smart for those favorite-brand items when By Jill Cataldo they’re on sale. Major brands often engage in what the industry calls “price wars” with one another. We see this frequently with items such as pasta sauce, where numerous brands compete to sell what is essentially the same product. Brand A may be cheap one week, but next week Brand B barrels in with an even lower price. This works out well for shoppers who aren’t particularly partial to any specific brand. But, if we think “I really like Brand A, and I will always buy it no matter what,” it’s great when Brand A is on sale for $1.29 a jar and we’ve got a 75-cent coupon for it. But when the sale ends and Brand A goes back up to $3.29 a jar, we’ll be paying the price. If we can let some of our brand preferences slide a little bit and fluctuate along with the sales, we can save more money in the long run. Next week, I’ll share one of the biggest and most surprising tips with you. It involves which days of the week are the least expensive days to shop at the grocery store. You might be surprised to learn what they are!

Coupon Queen

It’s a very common marketing technique for a manufacturer to show a new or more expensive variety of a product on the face of a coupon in the hope you will buy this new or more expensive variety. If you read the coupon, though, you’ll discover the offer is good for “$1 off any [brand] product.” Consider a coupon for a new variety of cold medicine put out by a leading manufacturer. The coupon may show the new, multi-symptom medicine in the picture, hoping you will want to try it, but the text states clearly you can use the coupon on any medicine from this manufacturer. Learning to distinguish between what the photo suggests and the full terms of the deal the text actually spells out is a skill that can really help shoppers, giving us more freedom to buy the item we may prefer versus the variety shown in the photo. I recently had a coupon for a new variety of skin-care product. It showed a photo of the lotion, and the text read “$1 off [brand] lotion, body wash, or any [brand] product.” That wording is key! When I didn’t see a good sale for the company’s lotions or body wash, I did see a bar of the same brand of soap — for 99 cents. With my coupon, it was free. Brand-name sandwich meat is an area where it can pay to read coupon wording closely. People often ask me how to save at the deli counter. It’s not always easy to get discounts on fresh-cut cold cuts. But many meat manufacturers sell prepackaged deli meats, too, and there are often coupons for

Snowmobile safety course for youths

Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union celebrated Credit Union Week with a barbecue at its Port Henry branch. Taking part were, from left, member Abraham Goyette, TFCU staff member Marcy Eichin, member Madeline Goyette, staffer Jackie Andersen and staffer Janice Hart.

Credit union week observed PORT HENRY — Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union members participated in Credit Union Week activities recently. The week of activities culminated with a barbecue at the Elizabethtown branch. TFCU staff also served several hundred free lunches throughout the week at the Port Henry branch and the Ticonderoga main office. It also offered free cider and cider doughnuts to members at all branch locations. Members entries in the “Celebrating 55 Years Contest” were drawn at random and announced during the week. Five winners were each awarded $55 cash prizes — Norman Swift, Toni Mowery, Patricia Barber, Sharon Bashaw and LeAnn Pierce. Credit Union Week commemorates the role that credit unions have played in their communities. TFCU member Norman Swift touted convenience as the main benefit. “The TFCU is easy to bank with.,” he said. “I like to keep it simple, no bells and whis-

tles and it’s better than a bank because the money goes to the community rather than a corporate officer's pockets.” Toni Mowery, a member since 1979, enjoys the service. “The staff at TFCU is extremely helpful and supportive in working with you through any problems,” she said. “They offer the best service.” “In my opinion, every member of the credit union is a winner,” commented TFCU member Sharon Bashaw. “We financed a new camper through the TFCU with a great rate.” TFCU is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution offering membership to people who live, work, worship or attend school in, or businesses or legal entities located in Essex County, Washington County or the towns of Hague, Horicon and Chester. TFCU operates branches at Route 9N in Ticonderoga, at Meacham Street in Port Henry and at Court Street in Elizabethtown. For more information go online at


There was no summer recreation program in 2009 because of construction at the school. Besides sports, games and arts and crafts activities, the program has featured trips to local attractions, ice skating, a train ride and a visit to the training camp of the New York Giants in Albany. Also included in recent years was a music program under the direction of Nelson Shapiro and Megan Walls. The town looked for alternative sites in 2009 to house the summer program, looking at the Ti Armory, St. Mary’s School and Silver Bay. The Armory and St. Mary’s lacked adequate space, while the cost of transportation to Silver Bay eliminated that site.

From page 1 with various recreation activities. Children also swim at the Black Point beach. The cost of the program is $75,000, which includes $25,000 from the federal government that pays for the meals. The remaining $50,000 has always fell to local taxpayers. Beginning in 2010, that portion of the program cost will be paid by parents of participating children. “It’s fair,” Dedrick said of the tuition plan. The program, based at Ticonderoga Elementary School, normally attracts about 200 children.

TICONDEROGA — The Adirondack Trail Riders will sponsor a youth snowmobile safety course at the Ticonderoga Fish and Game Club, County Route 56, Saturday, Nov. 28. The eight-hour course will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and consist of classroom instruction followed by a multiple choice test. Class size is limited. Participants must preregister by Monday, Nov. 23, by calling Patrick or Shelly Hendrix at 585-7539.

Hospital recognizes volunteer TICONDEROGA — Phyllis Smith of Westport has been named Auxilian of the Year at Moses-Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga. She was selected by the Moses-Ludington Hospital Auxiliary at its annual meeting. Smith joined the volunteer staff in the nursing home in November 2001 and later became one of the top sales people in the hospital gift shop. She has volunteered more than 100 hours to date and continues to work on many special projects. “We are all proud to have Phyllis as our Auxilian of the Year. She is a valued, dedicated volunteer,” stated Carol Johnson. MLH community development director.

Bicycle tour to run through Ti from Lake George to Plattsburgh By Thom Randall TICONDEROGA — A week-long bicycle tour involving up to 2,000 bicyclists from Canada has been proposed for next August — with a route from Lake George to Ticonderoga then on to Plattsburgh — and the event is expected to give the region a substantial economic boost. The group Velo Quebec Voyages of Montreal, which plans international bicycle tours, is now setting up plans for a two-wheeled tour through Warren, Essex and Clinton counties, area tourism officials said. The group tour would likely be the first of its kind in the region, officials said. United Way of Clinton & Essex Counties Inc.


Representatives of Velo Quebec were in the region this week, reviewing accommodations and making arrangements, Warren County tour promoter Tanya Brand told county officials Oct. 28. “This is absolutely a great thing for the area, with a high-profile international tourism group choosing our region,” she said. Velo Quebec operates 60 tours per year on several continents. Their 2010 tours include two-wheeled trips in Europe, North America, Mexico, Cuba and Asia as well as Vermont and the Lake George-TiconderogaPlattsburgh tour. Brand said the bicyclists, primarily in their 40s, would be spending money and vis-

iting various destinations during the tour, which is tentatively set to begin Friday, Aug. 6. They plan to spend a day and a half in the Lake George area, bicycling to Ticonderoga either via state Route 8 or 9N through Hague, or through Washington County and north on state Route 22. They are tentatively planning to stay in Ticonderoga two nights, spending one day cycling a loop through southern Essex County seeing the sights, Brand said. Not only would they be dining out, but several hundred of them would likely be staying overnight in motels and hotels, while most of the bicyclists would be sleeping in tents. Caterers in various desti-


nation points would likely be hired to provide meals, she said, and the group is likely to be arranging for entertainment. Many in the tour group would arrive in Lake George on Friday, Aug. 6, staying at a park or large plot where they could set up hundreds of tents. Battlefield Park in Lake George is their preferred location, but their stay requires approval from the state Department of Environmental Conservation. When in Ticonderoga, they are likely to be headquartered at Ticonderoga Central School, Brand said. Ticonderoga area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Barbara Brassard said this idea is pending ap-

proval before the Ticonderoga Central School Board, and that area officials are excited about the prospects of the mass two-wheeled tourists. “It looks very hopeful the tour will go through,” she said. “It would be a definite boost to the economy, and we’re very optimistic.” After their second night in Ticonderoga, the group will then head off to Plattsburgh, where they are expected to spend a similar amount of time in Clinton County bicycling before they conclude their tour. While visiting Lake George Tuesday, the Velo officials toured various venues to compare potential headquarters for the first leg

of the proposed trip. The group went to the Lake George Forum, Wild West Ranch, the Lake George Recreation Center, The Dome, Adirondack Community College, and both the local high school and elementary school. Battlefield Park in Lake George Village was their first choice, and ACC was the apparent runner-up. Brand said that the group would probably be looking for scout groups or youth sports teams to volunteer as valets, in assisting unpacking the tourists bicycles and luggage from a fleet of tractor trailer trucks and performing other tasks. “This would be a really cool event for everyone involved,” Brand said.

International Paper Grant secured by Sen. Little aid Families First closing U.S. mills Ti mill not to be among those affected TICONDEROGA — International Paper has announced it will permanently shut down three U.S. mills and cut 1,600 jobs due to excess capacity in the North American market. The Ticonderoga plant is not affected. The closures affect the plant and associated operations in Franklin, Va., as well as containerboard mills in Pineville, La., and Albany, Ore. In addition, the company will permanently shut down the previously idled No. 3 machine at its Valliant, Okla., containerboard mill. “We recognize these are very difficult decisions affecting our employees, their families and the communities surrounding these mills,” Chairman and CEO John Faraci said in a prepared statement. “We have concluded that we have excess capacity in our North American paper and packaging businesses, and these decisions will better match our supply with our expected customer demand.” Since the onset of the global recession, demand for International Paper ’s uncoated freesheet in North America has declined precipitously, prompting the company to re-evaluate its uncoated freesheet operations. The planned shutdowns

will reduce the company's North American paper and board capacity by 2.1 million tons. As for the containerboard and coated paperboard businesses, International Paper said it expects demand to resume growth as the economy rebounds. However, the company doesn’t foresee a return to 2008 levels in the near future. The Louisiana plant is expected to close by mid-December; the Oregon plant by the end of this year; and the Virginia plant in the spring of 2010. International Paper said the shutdowns will not impact its ability to serve its customers. The company said it will work with union officials concerning severance benefits for hourly employees. Salaried employees impacted by these shutdowns will be offered severance packages and outplacement assistance consistent with company policy. International Paper is a global paper and packaging company with manufacturing operations in North America, Europe, Latin America, Russia, Asia and North Africa. Its businesses include uncoated papers and industrial and consumer packaging.

TICONDEROGA — State Sen. Betty Little once asked JoAnne M. Caswell, executive director of Families First in Essex County, Inc., her opinion of what was one of the biggest needs in Essex County for families who have children with special needs. Her response was quick and easy — respite. Recently the senator secured a $200,000 grant to provide respite for families and training for providers. The grant was divided by population numbers across the six counties, with Essex County receiving $24,300. The money came to Essex County via the Essex County Community Services Board. Director Nicole P. Bryant recommended to the Board that Families First oversee the distribution of these funds as they had experience in providing respite services and in training providers. So in April Caswell advertised the availability of the services through the Essex County Child Serving System. Within days, she had providers calling saying they had families in need. In addition, much to her surprise, people were asking to be trained to become respite providers. Eleven new respite providers were trained and most will stay on and work with Families First providing respite after the grant is completed.

State Sen. Betty Little recently secured a respite grant for the Families First program. From left are Tara Stockwell, respite provider from Port Henry, Little, Families First Executive Director JoAnne Caswell and Christina Nauman, a parent from Ticonderoga. Many of these people are staff members with ACAP – Head start. Within a month 31 families had signed up to receive services throughout the months of June, July and August. At that point Caswell had to start turning families away and put a cap on the numbers served so as not to dilute the services to a level that would not be beneficial. As of the end of September, 31 families with 57 children have received

1,211 hours of respite, utilizing $18,665 of the $24,300 grant. Respite services will continue to be offered until the remaining $5,635 of the grant is used. “This service has been a great help in providing families in Essex County a break, especially over the summer months when school is not in session,” Caswell said. “We would like to thank Sen. Little for her understanding of the need and her hard work in obtaining this grant.”

“My work will be competing with work from students from larger four-year schools, and it’s nice to get that recognition.” Her photographs will be part of a looped PowerPoint presentation which will be projected throughout the conference. Bowen will graduate from ACC in December with an associate’s degree and is looking to transfer to either Sage College or the Fashion Institute of Technology in the fall.

Champlain bridge to be demolished By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — The Lake Champlain Bridge in Crown Point, closed for a month because of safety concerns, will be demolished. Engineers have determined it is not feasible to rehabilitate the 80-year-old span. An underwater inspection of the bridge's concrete piers and underlying foundations found cracks and significant deterioration in the unreinforced concrete substructures well below the water level that render these supports so fragile that a sudden collapse could occur. “Safety was our primary concern when we closed the Lake Champlain Bridge last month and it is our chief interest now,” New York Gov. David Paterson said, announcing the decision to tear down the bridge.. “We must make a decision that protects those who cross the bridge, as well as workers and engineers, and therefore we have no choice but to tear down the dangerously deteriorated bridge.” The bridge is jointly

owned by New York and Vermont, although New York has responsibility for bridge maintenance. “Reports indicate that the bridge is highly unstable and our harsh winter will only aggravate its condition,” Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas said. “For everyone’s safety, the bridge must be dismantled in a controlled fashion quickly so that a replacement bridge can be erected in its place.” Douglas said both states are working to install temporary ferry service as close to the bridge as possible so that motorists can once again begin crossing Lake Champlain between Addison and Crown Point. Stanley Gee, acting commissioner of the New York State Department of Transportation, said, “Now that the analysis is completed and the bridge has been found unstable, we can work quickly to demolish the existing bridge and accelerate the process for building a permanent replacement. We look forward to restoring vehicle and pedestrian traffic across the lake. In order to preserve and protect the historically and environmental-

ly sensitive areas on both side of Lake Champlain, we plan to build the replacement bridge as close to the existing location as is possible.” Both governors have emphasized that until a new bridge can be built, a temporary new ferry service should be established as quickly as possible. To that end, they noted that all of the required environmental documentation will be submitted to the appropriate federal agencies early this week, so that construction of new ferry docks can begin as soon as possible. Last month, officials announced transportation alternatives to cross Lake Champlain. Those alternatives include a free ferry service between Ticonderoga and Shoreham, Vt., as well as free ferry service at Lake Champlain Transportation's ferry service at the Essex/Charlotte crossing. Additionally, a free express bus service now brings commuters to three major employers in Vermont, while a pedestrian ferry service was established north of the Lake Champlain Bridge between Westport, New York and Basin Harbor, Vt.

The Lake Champlain Bridge in Crown Point, closed for a month because of safety concerns, will be demolished. Engineers have determined it is not feasible to rehabilitate the 80-year-old span.

difficult to fill.” The Crown Point ambulance responded to 160 calls for help in 2008 with Hobbs along for 85 percent of the calls. “We’re short of EMTs and I’m generally available,” Hobbs said. “I like to keep busy.” At age 72 Hobbs is grateful he’s been able to help so many people. He’s particularly proud of the five babies he’s helped deliver. “Every one has been a girl,” he smiled. “I don’t know what that’s all about.” Watts said Hobbs provides much more than health care. “Dave has a very good bedside manner with the patients; he knows how to talk to the patients and make them feel better about the situation they are in. He has a very calming affect on them,” Watts said. “He has always been about putting patient care first; he always does what is best for the patient. “I believe Dave has touched many lives and made a huge difference in all the patients he has had over the years,” he continued. “His dedication goes beyond EMS, he also delivers meals on wheels as well as other volunteer work throughout his community.”

From page 1 Hobbs has served his neighbors by responding to countless EMS requests for service,” he added. “It does not matter the time of day or night, David is there, putting his patients first and giving them the best he has.” Hobbs began his EMS career in 1966 as a basic first aid responder in Malta. In 1968 he became an EMT and served in Malta 25 years before his family moved to Moriah. There he was a member of the Moriah Ambulance Squad before moving to Crown Point, where he has been an EMT the past seven years. “Anyone who has been dedicated to EMS for as long as Dave has deserves more than just this award,” said Matt Watts of the Ticonderoga Fire Department, who nominated Hobbs for the award. “Dave has shown dedication to EMS for a very long time in all the different communities he has lived in. Crown Point and the surrounding communities greatly benefit from Dave answering all the calls that he does. Without him there would be a very large void in this area that would be very

Woods The awards ceremony served as a family reunion for the Hobbs family. More than a dozen family members from New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts made the trip to see him honored. “I had my entire family with me,” he said. “It was a special night.”

meeting Moriah donates car to school Dissolution to be held Nov. 19 Former police car to be new driver ed car By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — Student drivers at Moriah Central School should have no trouble remembering traffic laws. That’s because they’ll soon be learning to drive in a police car. The town of Moriah has declared an old police car surplus and donated it to the school for use as a driver education vehicle. “The school district and the kids are very appreciative,” Bill Larrow, Moriah school superintendent, said. “We’re happy to offer this to students.” The car, a 2006 Ford Taurus, was purchased with money from Essex County Stop DWI funds, explained Rick Carpenter, Moriah town board member. It now has high mileage and is no longer suitable for police use. “But it’s still a good vehicle,” Carpenter said. “I’m

The new driver education car will be used by students as soon as it has been refitted. Police equipment is being removed and a passenger-side brake is being installed for instructor use. The Stop DWI emblems on the car will remain in place. “It’s all part of driver education,” Larrow said.

“Anti-DWI efforts are important to us. What better use for the car than driver education?” The town of Moriah has purchased a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria to replace the old vehicle. The new car was also purchased with county Stop DWI funds.

“If you care about your taxes and what is going on in your community please attend this meeting to ask questions and get answers about what may happen,” said Village Mayor Ernest Guerin. “Residents need factual information in order to make an informed decision when the question of dissolution goes to referendum, which is expected to occur in March 2010.” “Taxpayers in the townoutside village should also attend this meeting,” said Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava. “Although the residents of the village will make the final decision regarding whether to dissolve the village, dissolution also may impact areas outside the village.” He noted that the dissolution steering committee’s next step will be to develop a plan that can be “put in place if dissolution takes effect” and that community input will help inform that process. Study committee members representing the village are Guerin, trustee James Hughes, Walt Wojewodzic and Joseph Celotti. Representing the town are Scozzafava, Councilman Richard Carpenter, Charlie Bryant and John Boyea.

Moriah looked like a champion, claiming the Section VII-X Class D football title Nov. 6. The Vikings routed Ticonderoga, 42-12, to earn a berth in the state tournament. A year ago Moriah advanced to the state Class D championship game before falling. After a scoreless first quarter, Moriah broke open its contest against Ti. The Vikings scored three times to grab a 21-0 lead at the intermission. Ron Schofield tallied on a 9-yard run, Nick Gilbo crashed in from 3 yards away and Nate Gilbo heaved a 2-yard pass to Tom Tesar as Moriah rolled to the big lead. Ryan Mascarenas booted all three extra points. Ticonderoga showed life as Robert Kearns took the second half kick off and returned it 80 yards for a TD. But any Sentinel comeback hopes were immediately dashed as Schofield returned the ensuing kick off 71 yards for a Moriah scored a 28-6 lead. Schofield added a 7-yard TD run later in the third period and Moriah stretched its advantage to 35-6. Sergio Camacho closed out the scoring for the Vikings with a 2-yard TD run in the final quarter. Todd Carr scored on a 3yard run for Ti late in the contest. Schofield had a big game for Moriah, running for 165 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Dan Morrison paced Ti, running for 49 yards.

Hunters are out of their senses D

espite the fact that humans beings have evolved into a civilized society over the course of thousands of years; we are still considered to be the apex predators on this planet. For untold millenniums, human beings functioned through the evolutionary process in the role of ‘hunters and gatherers’. Subsistence depended upon what could be caught or gathered from the water and the land. This process was accomplished while simultaneously avoiding being caught or eaten by the some of the very species being hunted. Until humans attained the capacity for agriculture, the survival of our species depended upon fine tuning the skills of our natural, predatory abilities. The development of agriculture was essential to the development of civilizations. Once humans learned to raise food, they rapidly lost the natural ability to hunt. In his biophilia hypothesis, Harvard University professor E.O. Wilson described this nature heritage in an effort to better understand the human need for nature. Professor Wilson theorized that despite the fact that humans no longer function as true hunter/gatherers; we remain focused on the natural world. We are attracted to green spaces and we need the outdoors. It is in our genes! I believe the best proof of Wilson’s theory is evident when a toddler first picks up a stick. Although the child may never have seen a gun or a spear before, there is often an innate response that makes the child point the stick as if it were a weapon. The same situation occurs when a little boy gets his first b-b gun. There is a certain, inexplicable draw that makes him point the gun at the first bird to fly by or the first frog to jump. It’s a reaction that occurs across geographic, cultural and economic boundaries. Where does it come from if not a hunting instinct in our genes? Despite this ingrained hunter/gath-

erer heritage; man has become a civilized creature. Many of us have lost these once vital senses. Many humans no possess a natural sense of direction, a keen sense of hearing or smell. Some have purposely ‘tuned out’ these senses to block the bombardment of sensory overload that prevails in the modern world. However, through the long, evolutionary process, our senses have also atrophied from the lack of use. The keen senses that once protected humans from danger and insured our survival are no longer necessary because modern man gathers more and hunts less. Few of us use our senses strictly for hunting purposes anymore. However, the most successful hunters concentrate on utilizing their natural senses. In the natural environment, our senses are stimulated and exercised. As a result, senses become sharper and keener and we begin to hear, taste and smell better. This may even explain why food always tastes better in camp. For deer hunters, a constant awareness of scents, sounds and sights is key to success. Despite the fact that ‘scent, scent free and no-scent’ products have become a mini-industry within the hunting products industry; hunters spend little time concentrating on their own sensory awareness skills. Try a few simple exercises to illustrate the point. Shut your eyes and listen to the wind. Take a few deep breaths and smell the air to see if you can taste it. Crumple a leaf and listen closely to the sound. When one sense shuts down, others will compensate for the loss. When you can’t see, you’ll hear better; you’ll feel the wind on your cheek and smell the mustiness of autumn’s decay. In the blackness of an early morning’s watch, a hunter may hear every twig snap. But once the sun is is up, the

Obituaries Joyce N. Hozley Jan. 22, 1928-Nov. 4, 2009 TICONDEROGA — Joyce N. Hozley, 81, of Ticonderoga, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2009, at the residence of her daughter, Bonnie Carey, in South Glens Falls. Joyce was born in Ticonderoga on Jan. 22, 1928, the daughter of the late Robert and Leona (Wells) Armstrong. She was a communicant of St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Ticonderoga. She was employed in the Finishing Room at International Paper Company of Ticonderoga for many years, and was a member of the company's Quarter Century Club.

sensory concentration focuses on what we can see rather than what we hear or smell. The most successful hunters are those that can tune-in to the hunt. They have learned to process the scents, sights, sounds, taste and textures of the woods and to tune out the nonessential attractions. Whitetail deer utilize scents constantly. They use them for protection, for feeding and for breeding. A deer ’s nose provides it’s greatest protection. It can pick up a scent at a distance of a quarter of a mile. Successful hunters are those that possess a greater sensory awareness of themselves and their quarry.

Vermont moose season ends Vermont’s moose hunting season finished on November 1 for the 2009 season. It was the state’s 17th moose hunting season in modern times, the first occurring in 1993 when 30 permits were issued and 25 moose were taken by hunters. According to Fish and Wildlife officials a preliminary count shows that 516 moose were taken with 1,230 hunting permits issued for the 2009 season. David Godfrey of Holland, Vt shot the heaviest moose this year while hunting in Charleston on October 21. Godfrey’s 965 lb bull moose also is the second heaviest ever shot in Vermont.

Boaters reminded of new lifejacket law ALBANY — The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation reminds boaters a new state law took effect Nov. 1. The law requires all boaters traveling New York waters on recreational watercraft less than 21 feet in length — including motorboats, canoes, kayaks, rowboats and sailboats — must wear a personal flotation device through Saturday, May 1. The measure, signed into law by Gov. David A. Paterson in August, was sought by OPRHP to address a troubling rash of fatalities involving off-season boaters on small boats who were not wearing PFDs. In recent years, roughly 25 percent of the state’s boating fatalities occurred in the off season. In New York State, there were 21 boating fatalities in 2008, of which five occurred in cold water conditions, including an Oct. 19 Sullivan County incident in which three people died. In 2007, there were also 21 total fatalities, of which eight were in cold water conditions, including a May 4 Franklin County accident in which two people died. Under the new law, each boat passenger must wear a securely-fastened, U.S. Coast Guard-approved PFD of the appropriate size while the boat is under way that is, while the vessel is not at anchor, or made fast to the shore, or aground. Boaters are subject to the law while on any lakes, rivers, streams and waters within the state that are not privately-owned. Violation of the law could result in a fine of $25-$100. Commercial boats and racing crew shells of organized rowing teams are not subject to the law. In addition to the new requirement, PFDs must be worn year-round by all children younger than 12 years of age on any boat less than 65 feet in length, unless within a fully enclosed cabin; by anyone towed, such as water-skiers or wake-boarders; and while on board a personal watercraft. Otherwise, a PFD must be available for every passenger on board every vessel, including no-motorized watercraft such as canoes, kayaks and rowboats.

It might help to talk with others who are also grieving. Check with hospitals, religious groups, hospices and local government agencies. • Don’t make major changes right away. It’s smart to wait a while before making big decisions like moving or changing jobs. • Talk to your doctor. If you’re having trouble with everyday activities, like getting dressed or fixing meals, see your health care provider. • Consider additional support. Sometimes short-term talk therapy can help. • Be patient. Mourning takes time. It’s common to have roller-coaster emotions for a while.

Signs and symptoms of COPD • Constant coughing, sometimes called “smoker’s cough” • Shortness of breath while doing activities you used to be able to do • Wheezing (a whistling or squeaky sound when you breathe) • Chest tightness • Feeling like you can’t breathe or can’t take a deep breath

Avoid deadly carbon monoxide We’re all looking for ways to save on fuel costs. A word of caution - be extremely careful of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide, an invisible, odorless gas, can be deadly if left undetected. It’s the byproduct of the incomplete burning of fuel such as natural gas, butane, propane, wood, coal, heating oil, kerosene and gasoline. Common sources of it in the home include malfunctioning forced air furnaces, kerosene space heaters and natural gas ranges. Other sources include wood stoves, charcoal grills, motor vehicle engines and fireplaces. Symptoms mimic the flu. You may experience headaches, weakness, confusion, chest tightness, skin redness, dizziness, nausea, sleepiness, heart fluttering or muscle control loss. If you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning, immediately go outside and breathe deeply. If symptoms are severe, get medical attention right away. Things to do to protect yourself & your family: • Arrange for regular check-up of your heating system • Ensure space heaters and wood stoves are in good condition • NEVER use a gas range for heating • NEVER burn coal or charcoal in an enclosed space • NEVER leave a car running in a closed garage • Consider installing a carbon monoxide detector. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
