‘Winter wonderland’ coming to Ti’s business district this year By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Winter will be embraced in downtown Ticonderoga this season. The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will join with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance to create a “winter wonderland” in the business district. Merchants are being asked to create wintertheme displays for their storefronts, said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. The displays will remain in place throughout the winter. “The chamber is working with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance in creating a ‘winter wonderland’ throughout downtown and the Ticonderoga area,” Courtright said. “We are asking all area businesses to have their window displays for the winter season done by Friday, Nov. 30, which is the start of the North Country Christmas Celebration.” The third annual North Country Christmas in Ticonderoga, sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, will be Nov. 30 through Dec. 9. “We are also working with the local schools to have them (students) create scenes in

windows in downtown,” Courtright said. “In addition, we are willing to assist other businesses in creating displays if needed. If you are interested please contact the chamber office.” PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance will work with Sugar & Spice Country Shoppe to create a display showcasing Ticonderoga businesses. People who would like to display a product or information on a business can email chamberinfo@ticonderogany.com or call 585-6619 for more information. “You must register to participate by Monday, Nov. 19, “ Courtright said. “Your name will be prominently displayed in the windows showcasing your item.” PRIDE and the alliance will feature an indoor and outdoor “winter wonderland” theme. Organizers are looking for sleds or shovels for the outdoor display and gift certificates, products and more for the indoor display. Courtright said the “winter wonderland” displays will play a prominent role in a community event. “In February we will be having a scavenger hunt available for the community and visi-

Thanksgiving dinner to be served in Ti; volunteers needed By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Thanksgiving dinner will again be served in Ticonderoga. The fourth annual “Miracle on Montcalm Street — Adirondack Dinner Table” will be shared Thanksgiving day noon to 2 p.m. at the Ticonderoga fire house. “It’s a great day for people to join their hearts and hands for each other,” organizer Tricia Stonitsch said. The entire event is designed to have a family feeling, she said. “This dinner is an off shoot of a dinner in Harlem that has been going on for over 40 years...’a feast fit for kings given away to

people we don't even know!’ and the heart of the Dixon family here in Ticonderoga that has come together in this venue,” Stonitsch said. “The difference is that here in the North Country we know most everyone.” The entire community is invited to attend. Each guest is received and brought to a table. Many of the menu items are prepared by families in their homes and brought to the firehouse Thanksgiving morning. Volunteers then make turkey, gravy, smashed potatoes and sweets. Volunteers are needed to help with the annual dinner. “We need volunteers to pray for us as  we join hearts and hands; make cards for us to give with each delivered meal; make ‘fun

baskets’ for each table with playing cards, coloring books, games,” Stonitsch said. “Spend what you would spend on your family meal adding to ours and join us,” she said. “Cook and bake for us what you buy or we supply; serve or host a table that you decorate like home; eat your meal with those who come ; deliver meals to those who can’t come to the site; join the cleanup crew on the day of or the morning after; help us with finances.” All ages can help, she added. “We don't have to be ‘in need’ to need each other in order to make a family day for everyone,” Stonitsch said. Volunteers are needed Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. at the fire house to prepare food

and set up the room. People should bring their own aprons, paring knife and cutting board. Thursday, Nov. 22, volunteers are needed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a variety of jobs. Volunteers are welcome to work as long or as little as they like. Volunteers will also be needed Friday, Nov. 23, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for clean up. “Thanks for giving,” Stonitsch said. “Your Thanksgiving will never be the same....and neither will their ’s.” People interested in volunteering, attending the dinner or having a dinner delivered to their home can contact Stonitsch at 5856369 or Janet at 543-6971.

Rite Aid robbed in Ticonderoga By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Rite Aid pharmacy was the victim of an armed robber Nov. 8. A male suspect entered the store at about 6:11 p.m. and handed an employee a note demanding prescription pain medication, according to Ticonderoga police. The robber claimed to have a weapon, police said, but none was shown. After receiving an unspecified amount of narcotics, he fled the pharmacy on foot into nearby fields. The Rite Aid is located at the intersection of Routes 22, 9N and 74. The suspect is described as a white male, about 6 feet tall weighing approximately 180 pounds with an unshaven appearance. He was wearing a brown Carhartt jacket over a grey hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a black hat and black sneakers. Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to contact the department at 585-3456. Armed robbery is a rare crime in Ticonderoga. Mark Johns, Ti police chief, said the last armed robbery in the community was in 1998. He warned, though, Ticonderoga is not immune to drugrelated crime. “We’ve been seeing a lot of similar cases of robberies at pharmacies in Vermont and Plattsburgh,” Johns said. “It’s happening more and more in the area.” He also noted the Rite Aid is located at a main intersection that has “a lot of out-of-state traffic.” Officers from the Essex and Washington County Sheriff’s Departments and New York State Police are assisting with the investigation. The Ticonderoga Fire Department assisted with traffic control as roadblocks were set up on all roads leading into town. Rite Aid Corporation told police they are offering a $2,000 reward for details leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

Thanks for neighbors, small towns

A

few days before Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, devastating homes and businesses in several states, there was a disaster in the tiny Adirondack hamlet of Bakers Mills, just south of North Creek. The community response to both crises was uplifting, and it left us thankful for living in a, Adirondack small town. In the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 27, Bruce and Amy Cleveland’s house in Bakers Mills was razed by a fire. By some miracle, they had left home an hour earlier to go to the Glens Falls Hospital emergency room. When they arrived back in Bakers Mills, their home was gone. They lost everything. On Oct. 29 and 30, Hurricane Sandy ripped into the East Coast, with New Jersey, New York City and Long Island taking the brunt of the winds and floodwaters. Many lost everything. We continue to hear stories of Adirondack residents traveling south to the greater New York City area to help with the recovery, including firefighters, police officers and business owners. A nationwide relief effort was set up to help the people who lost property during Hurricane Sandy. It seems do this for strangers not just in America but around the world who need our help from natural disasters. Yet it was Bruce and Amy Cleveland’s personal disaster that reminded us that there are people in our own towns, our own region, who also need help. And that help came. The Clevelands’ friends, family and neighbors in the town of Johnsburg have set up a recovery fund for them, and they held a benefit on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the J&J Foxx Lair Tavern in Bakers Mills. It was a resounding success. People donated food, items for the raffle and auction, and music. The tavern’s manager, Joelene Slater, co-organized the event with Nancy and Bert Heckett from the Wevertown Country Store. The Cleveland benefit was a classic example of neighbors helping neighbors, and it seems there’s a culture of giving in the town of Johnsburg. The J&J Foxx Lair Tavern regularly holds benefits, including the Halloween Bash for the North Country Hardship Fund, founded by Wayno Bukovinsky, another local resident. In the spring of 2008, Wayno was in a

coma after a serious motorcycle accident. Airlifted to Albany Medical Center, his prognosis, including recovery from traumatic brain injury, was bleak. Soon afterward, there was a widespread effort to help with family and medical costs. “The North Country Community rallied behind my family,” he said. “Fundraisers were coordinated by childhood friends, fellow firefighters, co-workers and people I had never met before.” And now Wayno’s paying it forward. After recovering, even in a wheelchair, he set up the North Country Hardship Fund to help neighbors in need throughout the region. In August, their Wayne Stock V benefit concert at the Ski Bowl Park in North Creek raised $22,000 for the Fund, which provides relief to families suffering a tragedy in Warren, Essex, Hamilton, Saratoga and Washington counties. It’s this kind of pay-it-forward attitude in small Adirondack towns that makes us thankful. Whether we know them or not, our neighbors are willing to help in times of tragedy, and they treat everyone as though they’re family. Tragedy can strike anytime, and it’s a blessing to know that people like Wayno and Tammy Bukovinsky and businesses like the J&J Foxx Lair Tavern and Wevertown Country Store are here to help. Yet it’s not only disasters that cause distress in our neighbors’ lives. There are people who need our help every day, with clothing, food and fuel. We should also find time to help them as we look to help others in far-away countries. So, if you haven’t had a chance to help a neighbor this holiday season, please consider donating to a local charity or food bank in your hometown. The North Country Hardship Fund could certainly use the help. So could the Clevelands; send donations to Community Bank, Main Street, North Creek, NY 12853 c/o the Cleveland Fire Fund.

Our Nation is at a Crossroads

W

ith the election now behind us our nation is either poised to move forward or is stuck fast in the mess that has plagued us over the past four years. We can assume from the results of the presidential election that approximately 51 percent of the country believes we are on the road to recovery and bright days are ahead. The other 48 percent of those participating in the recent election believe the country is severely broken, lacks the leadership needed to correct the problems and believes very troubled days are ahead. Obviously we are a nation where the majority rules, but we’ve become a nation of winners and when winning at all cost is the primary objective it tends to leave ill will in its wake. While no one wants to end up on the losing side of a hard fought battle, what I hear most disturbing from those on the losing side is a loss of faith in our nation’s principles more so than just a bitter defeat. When President Obama was elected in 2008, those who chose not to vote for him were at least optimistic that he would live up to the words of his campaign, bring the parties together, reduce the unemployment rate and the deficit and bring about a needed change in the way the country had been functioning over the previous administration. Unfortunately, throughout this campaign President Obama took a different approach with his reelection using terms like “redistribution,” “revenge,” and drew lines around race, gender, sexual orientation, and age. Where most presidents spoke about motivational achievements and encouraging goals, President Obama spoke about entitlements, those who don’t share with others and discouraging small business job providers. Clearly the last four years have seen a major shift in the attitude and expectations people have with regards to their lives and the position government seeks to have in those lives. We’re moving from a nation where John Kennedy challenged us… not to ask what our country can do for us but what we can do for our country to an Obama second term where we should be asking the country to step in and right the inequities through a leveling of the playing field. Many nations have tried this approach and many nations have failed. When the

able bodied population of this nation have been empowered and motivated to make things happen on their own Dan Alexander we’ve seen Thoughts from Behind the Pressline growth in all forms. When the population becomes complacent and lacks the opportunity for great personal growth the bottom line motivation becomes hollow, and the risk is no longer worth the effort required. We can not allow the latter sentiment to take hold. When the risk takers, the motivated small entrepreneurs and young dreamers just starting out in life become disillusioned and lose faith that the realization of their dreams is no longer in their hands a fear sets in and takes hold. The fear that what made our country the great economic engine that drove the world is now slowing down is both frightening and disheartening. It’s seen as more than just a failed election it’s a stark realization that our way of life is about to change and there may be little anyone can do to alter what is about to take place. The nation’s course now appears to be set. We can not afford four more years of stagnate government but we’ve essentially sent the same players back to Washington who have accomplished little over the past four years. We can not afford rising costs, increased unemployment, higher deficits and further grid lock. So we must have faith that our great nation will persevere and not allow a process of social reengineering to dampen the capitalistic spirit that has proven so successful over the years. Both must coexist and so it’s time for both sides to unite, address the issues facing the country without further gridlock, with a spirit of cooperation and resolve to maintain a national attitude where personal responsibility and self reliance are still valued over all else. Time will tell what the future holds but none of us can lose faith in a country that has given us so much and yet much more is still expected for the generations that follow.

Letters to the Editor

Appreciative To the Times of Ti: The volunteers of the Ticonderoga Food Pantry wish to express since appreciation to the Ticonderoga Elks for the spaghetti dinner held recently. It was a most successful fund raising event and many favorable comments were heard. A very special thanks to Exalted Ruler Marge Hurlburt and her kitchen crew, also to Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Nowc and Mr. Steve Nadeau. We sincerely appreciate the wonderful community support we receive. Thank you to one and all for making this event so successful. Margaret H. Beuerlein Ticonderoga Food Pantry Director

Venne was a fantastic soldier To the Times of Ti: I would like to personally thank you for your dedication to the truth (Times of Ti column “Dain Venne was more than a hero,” Nov. 10). Dain was a fantastic soldier who would never turn down a challenge. He was the definition of a soldier. He will be deeply missed from by the 444th. It is an honor to serve with all of my men. ESSAYONS! CPT Donald J. Oechslin Commander - Ontario 6 444 Engineer Company Forward Operating Base Goode/Gardez, Afghanistan

Ti has a drug problem To the Times of Ti: I will not continue to have nights, where we are held up in our home, locking our doors and windows, a helicopter hovering over our house, and looking at my two young children, as they are uneasy and scared. This is no way to live. I was born and raised in Ticonderoga, and 12 years ago I moved out of Ticonderoga due to a job relocation, and the Ticonderoga I left 12 years ago is not the same town I moved back to last year. In talking with many long time residents of Ticonderoga, it seems as though the illegal drug and illegal prescription drug climate has taken a strong hold in our town over the last 5-6 years, and as a town we need to figure out how to get this problem under control. The following is an email I recently sent to our Ticonderoga town clerk, requesting that it be forwarded to all town board members, the Ticonderoga Police Department, and all town judges. I would like to ask that our Essex County District Attorney also become involved. Dear Town Officials, As a resident of our town I have become increasingly concerned with the fact that our town is being overrun with illegal and prescription drug abusers. I respectfully request that at the next town board meeting that the town officials, judges, police and board all

be present. With 2013 budget discussions consistently on the agenda, I would like to see where the budget numbers come in for public safety. I believe if we accurately measure the current illegal and prescription drug problems in our town, if we look closely at the budget numbers allotted toward public safety in the last 4-6 years, we can first formulate a clear plan to address the problem, plus establish a realistic budget number for public safety. We need a realistic public safety budget number to truly meet the problems we have before us, as we are losing ground and have been losing ground to these drug problems for the last 5-6 years. I would like to ask, that the budget numbers for the last six years, assigned to public safety, be clearly detailed and prepared for the next town board meeting, so we can look at the last six years, to see if public safety budget numbers have gone down, remained the same, or have been raised in the last six years. Obviously, whatever the budget numbers are, they are not enough because this town is not heading in the direction it should. We need a comprehensive plan with adequate budget dollars to address this problem. No different than our state and federal budgets, safety must be at the forefront, because we have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for our tax payers; that is job one. I hope we all find it 100 percent unacceptable that we had taxpaying, law abiding citizens working at the Rite Aid the other night, shopping at the Rite Aid the other night, and those individuals were exposed to a robbery for prescription drugs. The helicopter use, that is reactive, I am of the opinion that we need to make clear strides to make Ticonderoga less of a safe haven for these individuals, and instead we need to formulate a plan to make our town one of zero tolerance, hence becoming very unappealing to these unfavorable individuals. I request that someone from the town board contact me, to see how and when we could have an open town discussion regarding these problems before us. I believe a cost effective approach would be to have all involved prepared ahead of time to discuss the facts, crunch the numbers, looking at arrests, convictions, sentencing, where these illegal drug users are congregating, how these individuals are conducting their illegal business, etc. With planning such meeting we can start a responsible process to measure and improve our current situation. I would prefer that all in attendance at such a meeting not come to the table with finger pointing; we need facts, solution statements, and ideas on how to get our arms around the problems which face us. I appreciate your time greatly and look forward to the prospect of taking our town back together, as a team! Kellie Whitman Ticonderoga

United Way reaches out to Ti area Human services agency would like greater role

By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The United Way of the Adirondack Region would like to increase its presence in southern Essex County. Officials of the agency, which serves Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties, visited Ticonderoga recently to explain their program and ask for input from local leaders. “The Ticonderoga area has the potential to increase our capacity to help our partner agencies bring services to this area,” said Gayle Alexander, chairwoman of the 2013 United Way campaign. “We’d like to be move involved in Ticonderoga.” Alexander was part of a United Way contingent that met with area government, civic and business people at Inter-Lakes Health Oct. 26. The United Way of the Adirondack Region includes 41 partner agencies that provide human services to the North Country. In 2012 United Way assisted more than 80,000 people in Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties. John Bernardi, executive director of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, said

the Ticonderoga meeting was to help the group determine the needs and priorities of the Ticonderoga area and to find ways United Way can assist. The United Way of the Adirondack Region is already present in the area. Several local United Way agencies — the Substance Abuse Prevention Team of Essex County, Literacy Volunteers, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, Mountain Lake Services and the Essex County Mental Health Association — had representatives at the gathering. Bernardi acknowledged United Way would like to increase monetary contributions from the Ti area, but said that was only part of the reason for the visit to Ticonderoga. “Fund raising is an important part of what we do, but it’s only part,” he said. “Most important is how we use those funds with our partner agencies to support programs that help people.” Kathy Snow, United Way director of development, explained the 211 telephone program that allows people to get health and human services information by calling 211. Help with child care, children’s activities, counseling and support groups, food, clothing, shelter, aging services, transportation, substance abuse, domestic violence, veterans affairs and more is available by calling 211 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The information is also available online at www.hudson211.org

Maria Burke, left, director of Literacy Volunteers, and Barb Brassard, director of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, review United Way information following a meeting in Ticonderoga. Larry Pickreign, United Way outreach coordinator, explained the program’s volunteer center and the annual Day of Caring. The North Country Regional Volunteer Center works to connect non-profit organizations in need of help with willing volunteers. “We’re becoming a clearinghouse for volunteerism,” Pickreign said. “We are working with existing groups like RSVP, Literacy Volunteers, the Red Cross and others to match them with volunteers.” People interested in the volunteer center can call 563-0028 or go online at www.northcountryvolunteer.org Pickreign also discussed the annual United Way Day of Caring, which will be held April 27, 2013. That day volunteers work on community projects. In 2012 more than 400 volunteers worked on 50 projects in the North Country. “I’m hoping we’ll have projects in the Ticonderoga area this year (2013),” Pickreign said. “I think Ticonderoga is a perfect place for this kind of project. It’s a volunteer initiative we’re very proud of.” Bernardi said the United Way of the Adirondack Region, based in Plattsburgh, has 41 partner agencies, including 26 that provide services in Essex County.

“We’re the hub of a collection of human service agencies in a three-county area providing help to many people,” he said. “It’s a role we really enjoy and cherish.” Barb Brassard, director of Port Henrybased RSVP, thanked United Way for its assistance and noted the importance of both United Way and RSVP. “We (RSVP) had more than 350 volunteers at over 80 stations volunteer 45,000 hours last year,” Brassard said. “We’re very proud of our program.” Maria Burke, director of Literacy Volunteers based in Port Henry, also noted the role of United Way. “Working with United Way and knowing I have that support makes me so thankful,” Burke said. “We support each other and continue to grow.” Bernardi pointed out United Way provides advice and technical support to its member agencies along with financial assistance. The United Way of the Adirondack Region is now in the midst of its annual funding campaign. It hopes to raise $775,000 this year to be distributed to member agencies. More information on the United Way can be found on line at www.unitedwayadk.org or by calling 563-0028.

Thanksgiving service set in Ti By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Area churches will again join forces for a ecumenical Thanksgiving service in Ticonderoga. “As we contemplate the seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas, we do have much to be thankful for,” said the Rev. David Hirtle of the First Congregational Church in

throughout the service. Following the service there will be a fellowship period. “Prices may be higher, there may be uncertainty in the financial markets, but God’s blessings on each of our families and our celebration of life is well in place,” Hirtle said. “O’ come, let us worship and give thanks as a community at this time of Thanksgiving.” People are asked to bring a canned/non-perishable food item to donate to the local food pantry.

Ti substance abuse leader ends term Terbeek steps down as coalition head

By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — After two years as the top man for a seven-county coalition, Doug Terbeek has relinquished his gavel as president of the Northern Tier Providers. “Just being involved at this level at this time is important because there are huge changes in the way health care reform will impact people and where our services fit,” Terbeek said. “My goal was to keep our members up to speed on these reforms and how they should be planning for the future.” Terbeek is the executive director of the Ticonderoga-based Prevention Team of Essex County, Inc., which provides schoolbased substance abuse prevention education, counseling and community awareness programs. Terbeek, a Crown Point resident, served two years as president of the organization,

made up of chemical prevention, treatment and recovery providers in Essex, Clinton, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. The organization will now be led by Tina Buckley, the director of Rose Hill Residential Rehabilitation Services in Massena. She took the role during the annual North Tier conference at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid Nov. 7. Terbeek said that with national and state regulations changing, the organization works to keep their services and value to the local communities at the forefront of provider conversations. “We are always in the process of trying to carve out a niche that is not yet defined,” Terbeek said. Among Terbeek’s last duties as president was to welcome people to the conference, which he said was held on his, “home field,” and to present the Volunteer Award to Elizabethtown-Lewis senior Bordy Hooper during the 15th annual Northern Tier Awards Banquet.

Community dinner planned in Crown Point Annual Thanksgiving feast Nov. 21

By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — Crown Point will again celebrate Thanksgiving with a community dinner. “With the economy struggling, many of us realize that there are blessings that we can share to ensure that we, as a community, look to each other ’s needs,” said the Rev. David Hirtle, pastor of the First Congregational Church in Crown Point. “Local Crown Point churches and businesses are again joining together to ensure that those Crown Point residents who are alone or those who might not have the means to celebrate Thanksgiving will have a traditional meal,” he said. “The meal is designed to rekindle friendship and promote fellowship in our community.” The dinner will be served at the United Methodist Church fellowship hall on Creek Road Wednesday, Nov. 21. There will be a continuous serving 4 to 7 p.m. There is no cost. The meal is a joint effort of Sacred Heart, Crown Point United Methodist and the First Congregational churches. “We are grateful to Debro’s On The Way Café, Crown Point Telephone, Crown Point Citgo, Hap’s, Village Auto, Crown Point Teachers Association, the post office team, Champlain National Bank, Gunnison’s Orchard, Torri’s Hair Dresser, the Knapp Club, as well as many individual members of the Crown Point area who are joining us to make this a true community time of fellowship and thanks giving,” Hirtle said. The meal will be served with locally grown and prepared items. Gunnison’s has donated the apples for the pies. Carlene from Maple Ridge will be making pumpkin pies. Crown Point post office employees are donating locally grown potatoes, which will be peeled and readied by members of The Knapp Club. Debro’s Cafe is making stuffing. Crown Point Telephone and Technology and Champlain National Bank employees along with members of the Congregational Church are making homemade rolls. Crown Point Citgo and Hap’s are supplying juice and milk for the children. Turkeys have again been donated by Sacred Heart Church and cooked in the United Methodist and Congregational ovens. Village Auto will provide vegetables and the Hammond Library is donating cranberry sauce. Condiments will be provided by Torri’s Hair Dressers. Funds for additional items have come from Champlain Bank as well as several anonymous sources. “We are gratefully looking for staff to help us ensure the success of our community meal,” Hirtle said. “If you are able to help carve turkey, mash potatoes, cut pies, set up, serve and help clean up please contact us.” People can call Hirtle at 597-3398 or Yvonne DuShane at 597-3212. Take-out meals will be available to Crown Point residents physically unable to attend. People wishing take-outs can call Hirtle at 597-3398 and send someone to pick-up their meal at the Methodist Church. The Knapp Senior Center will also serve a traditional meal from its kitchen on that day for senior citizens beginning at 5 p.m. “This is a total community effort that will ensure fellowship and a traditional hot meal for those who might not have one otherwise here in Crown Point,” Hirtle said.

Moriah meets tax cap for 2013 Town budget adopted By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com

41883

PORT HENRY — The 2013 Moriah town budget holds the line on property taxes for most residents. It also meets the state’s 2 percent tax cap. So, Supervisor Tom Scozzafava is happy, right? “Absolutely not,” he said. “We need equipment; we have trucks that are 12 years old that should be replaced. We have to address Bulwagga Bay campsite; we’re losing our beach there. We need so much and the tax cap just won’t allow us to address these issues.” The 2013 Moriah budget totals $4,084,129. That’s a decrease of $12,315 from the present budget of $4,096,444. The 2013 tax levy will be $2,027,020. That’s an increase of $48,714 from the current tax levy of $1,978,306. Exempting fire district spending, which is set by district commissioners and not the town, that’s a tax increase of 1.9 percent. The 2013 tax rate for residents living outside the village of Port Henry will be $7.95 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s the same as 2012. The tax rate for residents in the village of Port Henry will be $6.72, an increase from the 2012 rate of $6.50. The 2 percent state tax cap really straps a town, Scozzafava said. The cap allowed Moriah to increase taxes by about $50,000, which includes some unused money from 2012. Yet employee health insurance costs in 2012 will increase $40,000 and employee retirement costs will go up $15,000. “That’s it, health insurance and retirement put us over the tax cap and we haven’t even discussed anything else,” Scozzafava said.

To get back under the cap Moriah made cuts totalling $94,000 in contingency spending, contributions to the local ambulance squad, wages, worker compensation and other items. The town board also negotiated a $15,000 contribution from Hudson Headwaters Health Network for maintenence of the town-owned health center and decided to raise trash disposal fees to generate another $40,000. Employee costs — wages and benefits — comprise about 70 percent of the town budget. In 2013 most employees will get 2 percent pay increases. Union workers, who were scheduled to get a 3 percent pay hike, have agreed to forego 1 percent to help the town budget. The town supervisor, town board member, chairman of the board of assessors and justices will have a pay freeze. There are no personnel cuts in the 2013 spending plan. “In the last nine years we’ve eliminated a police officer, two highway employees, two clerks in the town hall and cut back at the campsite,” Scozzafava said. “Where else can we go? “You have to have segregation of duties,” he added. “You can’t have the same person writing the checks balancing the books. When it snows someone has to plow the roads. When a water main breaks someone has to fix

it.” Water and sewer rates in the 2013 budget remain the same — $420 for sewer and $290 for water. The budget process and tax cap are frustrating, Scozzafava said. “We’ve got a huge infrastructure in the community,” he said. “We have miles and miles of road. We have four water districts. They all need work to be maintained properly, but we don’t have the money.” The situation won’t likely improve, the supervisor said. “The elephant in the room is the employee retirement system,” Scozzafava said. “You can’t blame the retirees, they earned their retirement, but the costs are going up and up. The other big problem is health insurance.” Like 2013, Scozzafava expects retirement and health insurance costs to dominate allowable tax increases going forward. “I can understand why people are frustrated, so am I,” the supervisor said. “We’re expected to provide services to people and we’re not doing it as well as we’d like because we’re limited by money.” Scozzafava acknowledged the work by Becky Gilbo, senior account clerk and budget officer, on the 2013 spending plan.

Witherbee home burns WITHERBEE — Fire destroyed a modified mobile home in Witherbee Nov. 10. Tammy Shaw and her four children escaped the fire at 252 Silver Hill Road at about 7:30 p.m. No one was injured. The Mineville-Witherbee Fire Department received mutual aid from Moriah, Port Henry, Westport, Crown Point, North Hudson, Reber and Elizabethtown companies. Some departments were called to take tankers to the fire to supply water. About 50 firefighters fought the fire.

Thank You Thank you for your support for the position of Town Justice. I look forward to serving the people of Moriah as your Town Justice.

Dear Moriah Residents: I want to take a moment and thank you for taking the time to talk with me during the Moriah Town Justice Race. Although I lost the race, I gained the one thing I truly value. This was meeting a lot of you, and getting a chance to be friends along with sharing conversations with you. None of us have a crystal ball, nor do we know where our careers or lives will take us, but I really hope in the next coming years, rather it be 2 years or 10 years, that I have a chance at serving you, in one capacity or another. During this campaign, I found out how much I enjoyed meeting and being out in the public. I look forward at continuing to meet you all, at one time or another and to get to know one another. As most of you know by now, I have a very broad background in Supervision and Management, along with having really good instincts with making hard decisions. I feel I can use this experience down the road in serving the people of Moriah. Regards, Larry V. Wintle, Jr. 22657

Pictured above: Hundreds of people welcomed home the body of Dain Venne to Port Henry. Staff Sgt. Venne, age 29, of Port Henry was killed in Paktiya Province, Afghanistan, on Nov. 3. Photo by Nancy Frasier

Venne

from page 1 sides of the street. Venne was a member of the Port Henry department. Also on site was the MacBoston 18 Truck. The truck is an inspirational and memorial vehicle in tribute fallen firefighters from the area. Mac is in memory of firefighter Paul MacMurray of Hudson Falls; Boston refers to the city of Boston, where the truck was purchased; 18 was MacMurray’s badge number. The vehicle also honors Brian Meyers Sr. of Schuylerville. “It’s something no one wants to do, but something we have to do for a hero like Dain Venne,” the Rev. David Hirtle of the First Congregational Church in Crown Point said of the procession. “I’m pleased to see so many people.” People came from all over to pay tribute to the fallen soldier, including members of Barneveld Fire Department. Chief Brian Healey said his men made the nearly threehour trip from the Utica area at the request of an absent member. “One of our firefighters, John Gates, is in Afghanistan and served with Dain,” Healey said. “He contacted us through Facebook and asked us to represent him today. He thought Dain was a great guy, a great friend. We’re glad we can make this gesture.” Patty Kolodzey of Port Henry said the turn out was more than a tribute to Venne. “He was a wonderful boy and he comes from a wonderful family,” Kolodzey said. “This speaks to how much we think of the Venne family.” Cindy Coogan’s husband has spent 24 years in the military, serving two tours in Iraq. He’s now on active duty assisting people in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. “My heart goes out to his family,” the Witherbee woman said. “He gave his life for our country. It’s because of people like Dain that we enjoy the lives we do. We need to remember all the sacrifices made by our military men and women.” Grace French of Witherbee has known the Venne family for years. Her son played football at Moriah Central with Dain’s father Brian and her grandsons played with Dain. “This is so sad,” French said. “I’ve known the Venne boys for a lot of years. They’re great people. I feel so badly for them.” Venne’s funeral was held at St. Patrick’s Church in Port Henry Tuesday, Nov. 13. Venne died along side Specialist Brett E. Gornewicz from Alden and Specialist Ryan P. Jayne from Campbell. The men were assigned to the 444th Engineer Company, which is headquartered in Oswego. The unit is an element of the 178th Engineer Battalion of the 412th Theater Engineer Command. Lt. Col. Doril Sanders of the 412th TEC said the men were combat engineers conducting “route-clearing” duties for a convoy when an improvised explosive device blasted their vehicle.

People can follow Lanoue’s exploits online at http://peerbackers.com/projects/desirees-journeythrough-the-south-pacific The trip will not be a vacation, according to People to People officials. “Student Ambassadors are expected to create a positive impression of our country and culture, whether making a good impression in a school visit overseas, meeting local citizens, or attending a briefing with a government representative,” said Mary Eisenhower, president and CEO of People to People International, in a prepared statement. “This diplomatic spirit is one of the things that sets the People to People experience apart; our Student Ambassadors are global students and teachers of their own culture.”

fred@denpubs.com SCHROON LAKE — A Schroon Lake teen has been named a People to People Student Ambassador. Desiree Lanoue, 16, has been selected for the program, which was founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. “During the summer of 2013, I will join a delegation of students my age on a 22-day educational program that includes Fiji, New Zealand and Australia,” Lanoue said. “President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the People to People movement because he believed that ordinary citizens of different nations could solve their problems and live harmoniously with one another through shared experiences and understanding.” While in on the trip Lanoue will have an opportunity to meet with government officials and other teens. She will stay with host families while taking part in a series of educational programs. “Our curriculum will teach us about history, culture, architecture, art, conservation, geology, oceanography and political science in the areas we visit,” Lanoue said. “My dream has always been to become a marine biologist and during this trip we will be working alongside a team of marine biologists and we will be going to the Great Barrier Reef where studies are being done on the decline of coral. “I am looking forward to the experience of working with the marine biologists and hoping that it will allow me to decide upon my future career,” she added. “We will be led by experienced teachers as we engage in a wide variety of cultural encounters and adventures; we will interact with a city council member at the Rotorua Council Chambers and learn about the local government, engage in a reforestation project in Fiji and encounter several rare species of birds on New Zealand’s sacred Mokoia Island.” Lanoue said it will be the experience of a lifetime. “After all, there is no better way to learn about different cultures and careers than to experience them firsthand,” she said. “Among these rare experiences we are also going to have fun while learning about local sports and experiencing Maori culture. Needless to say, this is a wonderful opportunity and I am extremely excited.” The People to People program is not free. Lanoue will pay $9,000 to make the trek.

Lanoue will hold a spaghetti dinner Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Schroon Lake Fish & Game Club. It will include raffles and auctions. “Along with these benefits, I will be collecting bottles for a bottle drive,” she said. “If you would like to make a donation of an item for a raffle, a small cash donation, have bottles that need to be picked up or if you’d like to purchase dinner or raffle tickets, or simply get more information on my adventure, give me a call at 532-9518.

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will again take part in Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday will be Nov. 24, the Saturday following Thanksgiving. “First there was Black Friday. Then Cyber Monday. Now there is Small Business Saturday,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. “The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is participating in the nationwide initiative in hopes to lend support to area businesses. Small Business Saturday falls on Thanksgiving weekend, between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, when most holiday shopping begins.” The holiday shopping season is important to small businesses, Courtright said. “Small Business Saturday was created in 2010 by American Express in response to small business owners’ most pressing need; create more demand for their products and services,” he said. “This day is also used as occasion to recognize the importance of small businesses and their vital contributions to the economy, job creation and local communities. The national initiative encourages consumers to shop at small businesses during the holiday season. All small businesses, not just those that use or accept American Express, are able to participate. “Small Business Saturday is the perfect opportunity for community members to support Ticonderoga area businesses as well as giving small businesses an opportunity to take part in a nationwide effort,” Courtright said. “We encourage Ticonderoga area businesses to participate. They can register for the event and offer promotions and specials.” In addition to businesses registering their promotions online with Small Business Saturday, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is putting together a Small Business Saturday promotional flyer. Chamber members who would like to participate can email chamberinfo@ticonderogany.com or call 585-6619.

County manager presents three-year plan to balance the budget By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — With a little pain now, Essex County Manager Daniel Palmer believes he can present a budget that consistently meets the state’s two-percent tax levy cap starting in 2015. Getting there will not be easy, though. “We are in a position where the budget has become so lean the following year is a problem,” Palmer said during a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors Nov. 7. “We are looking at a three year plan to balance the budget so we can deliver a budget that does not overly rely on the use of fund balance and can be within the cap.”

Under Palmer’s plan, the proposed 2013 tax levy would be $20,576,274, a 26-percent increase from 2012 ($16,276,443). Palmer said that the estimated tax rate would increase from $2.42 per assessed $1,000 property value to $3.10, a difference of 68cents or $68 on a home assessed at $100,000. In 2014, the estimated tax levy would increase 15.56-percent to $23,778,411, with the tax rate increasing 48-cents to $3.58, meaning a $48 increase on an assessed $100,000 home. Palmer said that 2015 would be the first year that the county would be within the tax levy cap, which he estimated would be around three percent when adding in exemptions. The levy would rise to $24,491,763, with an estimated tax rate of $3.68, up 10 cents from 2014, causing a $10 property tax increase to a home assessed at $100,000. Palmer said the plan was created to solve the issue the county had with annually using fund balance to pay for fixed costs, what he called, “the gap.” “If you do not stick to this plan or something similar, then we are going to have more troubles as we go on from here,” Palmer said. “If you do not address the gap, it will become worse every year.” In the three year plan, Palmer said the county would use $4,350,000 in fund balance for 2013, dropping to $1 million in 2014 and none in 2015, leaving the county with an anticipated fund balance of $5 million. Palmer said that a cushion is needed in the fund balance account to pay for municipal tax warrants. “Last year, we paid, schools, towns and districts $4.3 million to cover unpaid tax bills,” Palmer said. “If you have less then $5 million in fund balance to cover that, then you are going to be in a position where you have to borrow from the bank. We were there before and we don’t want to go back.” Palmer said the county basically had to make up for years of having zero and minimal increases to the tax levy, which may be a hard sell. “The overuse of the fund balance has ultimately been to the advantage of the taxpayers,” he said. “But, they don’t care what you did for them yesterday, they care what you will do for them

tomorrow. However, we have to correct the things that have happened for almost 10 years now. We paid for costs with our ‘savings account’ and now we do not have the revenue coming in to keep going that way.” Palmer said that his plan was based on several assumptions, the biggest being the pending sale of the Horace Nye Nursing Home. “If the home is not sold, the plan doesn’t work,” he said, adding that retirement rates, state funding streams and the board requesting the use of more fund balance could all lead to the plan being upset. “If the board uses more fund balance in any one of these three years, then the plan does not work,” he said. “My intent is to be at three percent in 2015 and have a balanced budget. This plan is controlled by this board. Ultimately, this is based on the people I am talking to here.” “I do not think that there is anyone in this room that wants to see a 26 percent tax levy increase, but you are going to have to either raise taxes or cut services,” Moriah Supervisor and budget liaison Tom Scozzafava said. Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee said he wanted people to know that continuing to use fund balance was not the answer. “If we continue to do that at the county or in our towns, we are going to run out,” he said. “It is going to hurt us all because one day the bank is going to call.” Scozzafava said that along with the three year plan, he would present a budget for 2012 that fell within the tax cap. Palmer later replied by saying that in order to do that would mean either the use of $8.3 million in fund balance or the elimination of approximately 75 jobs. “I do not think that you could meet the federal or state mandates for delivery of service if you cut 75 people,” Palmer said. “These 75 people that would be cut do not come from another planet or somewhere else,” Scozzafava added. “These people are also our constituents.” Board Chairman and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said that the process and meetings would continue.

Hague triathlon sold; event to expand fred@denpubs.com HAGUE — The annual North Country Triathlon is changing. The Hague race has been sold to HITS Triathlon Series, a for-profit race promotion company based in Saugerties. “Hague is the perfect location for our races and we are excited to continue what the North Country Triathlon has started,” said Mark Wilson, HITS Triathlon Series race director. “The rolling foothills of the Adirondack Mountains and the waters of Lake George create an atmosphere that lends itself well to shorter distance races, while also creating great opportunities to go long.” The sixth annual North Country Triathlon attracted about 500 competitors to Hague last June. The race was founded by and managed by Randy Engler. “I’m very excited that HITS will be continuing with my vision of producing a solid event showcasing all the great things the town of Hague and the communities around Lake George have to offer,” Engler said. “I’ve been really fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with so many talented and energetic volunteers and community members each year. Their enthusiasm is what keeps our athletes coming back to this beautiful location.” The North Country Triathlon has featured three races — a sprint triathlon that includes a 750-meter swim, a 20-kilometer bike ride and a 5-kilometer run; an Olympic triathlon that includes a 1.5-kilometer swim, a 40kilometer bike ride and a 10-kilometer run; and a relay. HITS plans to expand the event to two days, June 29 and 30, and will feature five races — an open tri with 100-meter swim, three-mile bike and mile run; a sprint race with a 750-meter swim, a 20-kilometer bike ride and a 5-kilometer run; an Olympic triathlon that includes a 1,500-meter swim,

24.8-mile bike and 10-kilometer run; a half tri with a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run; and a full triathlon with a 2.4mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. The Hague event will be part of the 2013 HITS Triathlon Series schedule. Registration is now open and complete course maps are posted at HitsTriathlonSeries.com. The HITS Triathlon Series is now completing its first year with a national schedule, according to HITS President and CEO Tom Struzzieri, and is looking to expand. “We were looking for a race destination that could provide a multi-distant event to athletes from across the tri-state area and capital region,” Struzzieri said. “Several HITS staff members have raced the well-run North Country Triathlon and have been lucky enough to build a relationship with Randy (Engler) that led to this agreement.” Besides expanding the race, there will be another change. The North Country Triathlon raised more than $15,000 for charities during its six years. HITS is a for profit business. Still, the community will benefit, according to Lindsay Yandon, HITS marketing and social media representative. “In short, we are a for-profit company and will be delivering a pretty sizable event to Hague while still maintaining the local feel established by the NCT,” Yandon said. “We do, however, offer a charitable donations program. Any organization that brings 50 or more volunteers to the event will receive a donation of $1,000 from us. “Also, we are adding three distances to the event, thereby doubling if not tripling the attendance,” she said. “We are projecting 2,000 athletes, plus friends, family and supporters who will be eating, sleeping and playing in the Hague region. Our projected economic impact from the event is roughly $500,000.” Yandon said the Hague tri will be marketed nationally and is expected to attract many visitors.

Moriah Vikings eliminated from state tourney

A very difficult week had a disappointing ending for the Moriah football team. The Vikings lost to Rensselaer, 50-0, in the quarterfinals of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D football tournament Nov. 10 in Schuylerville. The setback came a week after the Moriah community learned of the death of Dain Venne, a former Viking player, who was killed in Afghanistan while serving with the Army. Moriah played tough for a half. The game was scoreless after one period and Moriah trailed just 12-0 at the intermission. The sky fell. Rensselaer exploded for 25 points in the third period to break open the contest. Rensselaer dominated the game, rolling up 439 yards of offense. Its balance attack had 233 on the ground and 206 through the air. The Ram defense held Moriah’s running game, its bread and butter, to 38 yards on 37 carries. Moriah managed five first downs, four on its final drive. The only other first down came on a pass interference call against the Rams. Seth and Brandon Butler led Rensselaer, scoring five of the Rams’ eight touchdowns — four of which came in the third quarter. Seth Butler ran for 143 rushing yards and three scores on just 11 carries. He scored on runs of 4 and 25 yards in the third quarter; he scored the game’s first touchdown on a 7-yard burst in the second quarter. Brandon Butler scored on an 80-yard pass from Steven Harwood in the third quarter and added a 45-yard interception return three minutes later to give the Rams a 37-0 lead. Arto Nadeau led Moriah with 32 rushing yards. Cameron Wright added 13 yards, battling an injury. Moriah also played most of the game without quarterback Cole Gaddor, who was injured in the first period. The Vikings finished their season with 56 record, winning their fourth Section VII Class D title in five years.

The winter creep at Point au Roche

The business of wilderness

Soaring mountain cliffs and gentle backcountry lakes are key features of the rugged Adirondack wilderness. Photo by Joe Hackett

F

or years, there has been a protracted debate over the value of protected state lands encompassed within the Adirondack Forest Preserve. Is land more valuable as a protected wilderness or when utilized as a working forest? In recent months, the ongoing debate has been rekindled due to the proposed State purchase of nearly 69,000 acres of Adirondack forest lands from The Nature Conservancy (TNC). According to the NYSDEC, the TNC lands will be sold to the State in a phased five-year contract beginning this year. If all goes as planned, the proposed acquisition will be the largest single private parcel of land added to the Adirondack Forest Preserve in over a century. The lands include a variety of remote parcels acquired from Finch and Pruyn Timberlands as part of a total of 161,000 acres purchased by TNC in 2007. Included within the proposed purchase are many unique and biologically important lands, as well as some high quality, recreational real estate. Of particular note are the Essex Chain of Lakes, OK Slip Falls and the Blue Ledges of the Hudson River Gorge. The 18,000 acre Essex Chain tract encompasses nine lakes and numerous ponds, as well as a critically important junction of the Cedar and Hudson Rivers which will provide public access to, and from these wild rivers. Over the years, Finch and Pruyn has leased portions of these lands to a variety of private hunting and sporting clubs, including the fabled Gooley Club. In fact, some of the proposed new lands have remained in private hands for over a hundred and fifty years. Leases for the remaining private hunting clubs, which total about 2000 acres, are set to expire by 2018. When the camps are finally gone, it will signal the end of an era. Although the leaseholders never owned the lands, they treated them well, and protected them as their own. They have been good stewards, and they’ve long enjoyed the benefits of their care. Throughout the 1980’s, I often flew into First Lake on the Essex Chain of Lakes with Helms Aero Service out of Long Lake. The big lake held a fine population of trout, and it provided plenty of solitude. However, it was not unusual to see or hear a motor vehicle, as there are many miles of roads woods roads lacing the vast property. Boreas Pond, which is the centerpiece of the Boreas Pond Tract, has a wonderful, log lodge situated along it’s shoreline. Located nearly six miles distant from the nearest paved road, the existing log lodge would provide a wonderful setting for an Interior Outpost, similar to Adirondac Loj on Heart Lake. However, it is unlikely the structure will be allowed to remain after state acquisition, due to land use restrictions in ‘wilderness areas”. Although the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) owns Adirondac Loj on Hart Lake, as well as Johns Brook Lodge, both of these properties are located on private lands which are adjacent to and surrounded by state wilderness or primitive corridors. ADK opened Johns Brook Lodge in the Johns Brook Primitive Area in July 1925. In addition to a Main Lodge, ADK maintains several outbuildings as rentals, which include Camp Peggy O’Brien, Winter Camp and a small hut built for volunteers. In the early 1990s, both Winter Camp and Grace Camp were renovated. According to a 1903 opinion by the NYS Attorney General, the term wild forest lands was intended “To preserve such lands as a wilderness, in which the work of man should not appear; these lands should remain subject to natural conditions and results, without the intervention of man, in cutting, pruning or otherwise cultivating the woods or the land.” Quite obviously, over the years exceptions have been made, most significantly in the High Peaks Wilderness. There are similar opportunities to establish Interior Outposts near the historic McIntyre Tract, where the Open Space Institute retains both the restored McNaughton Cottage, as well at a log cabin, hunting camp on the Upper Preston Pond.

In addition to these properties, SUNY/ESF also maintains a former NL executive cottage, the Masden House which is located near the Upper Works in Tahawus. As the use of the Adirondack’s most remote recesses continues to increase, the benefits of maintaining a presence in the nether reaches of the park are likely to be realized, especially in terms of search and rescue, and protection of natural resources. Currently, the Adirondack Park contains 85 percent of the total combined wilderness in the eastern United States. It also contains about 27 percent of all the forested land in New York State. There are 18 designated wilderness areas in the Adirondack Park totaling about 1.1 million acres. With the recent establishment of a marked hiking trail to the summit of Jay Peak in the Jay Mountain Wilderness, there are no longer any wilderness areas in the Adirondacks that remain trailless. The Boreas Pond parcel alone will serve to link three separate wilderness areas by connecting a vast expanse of woodlands with an historic, 12,000 conservation easement that has protected the lands surrounding Elk Lake for over 60 years. The purchase will connect the Dix Mountain Wilderness with the Hoffman Notch Wilderness and the Western High Peaks Wilderness. As a result, it’s likely a majority of the proposed new lands will be zoned as wilderness. As such, management of the new lands will prove to be a stretch, considering the current DEC staffing levels. It is expected the natural and historic resources of these proposed new purchases will draw new visitors, which will serve to boost the economies of local towns such as Newcomb, Minerva and North Hudson. Although several local politicians have argued the proposed state lands will not generate comparable economic benefits to a working forest, or recreational leases, the math simply doesn’t support such arguments. In 1920, about 120,000 people were employed in the wood products industry in New York state. By 1970, less than 6000 were so employed. The peak year for the Adirondack lumber industry was 1905 when about 3.5 million trees were felled and over 700 million board feet of lumber were produced. Today, the Adirondack lumber industry can’t compete with pulpwood produced on tree farms in Siberia, or hardwoods harvested in Malaysia. Currently, machines such as ‘feller/bunchers’ and similar on-site production mills, can be operated by a small contingent of workers. They can accomplish the output of a small army of lumbermen, in less time and with far less expense. It is difficult to compare the economic values of a working forest to the economic benefits of a protected forest. However, the most glaring comparison is evident in the scenic vistas, the abundance of fresh water, fresh air, the diverse ecosystems and the wildlife.These quality of life issues are available to both visitors and local residents. Wood products are available in many places, across the globe. However, wilderness is not so easily procured. Modern society is just not producing wilderness anymore. It is a product that grows slowly, and spoils easily. Yet once it takes root, it is very difficult to remove it. With over 23 percent of the US population located within a day’s travel, the Adirondack region is ideally suited to dispense the elixir of wilderness for years to come.

inter comes with little warning in the North Country. The season hits fast, like a match strike, and it burns slowly with the steady luminescence of all the whites, blues and grays the cold has to offer. It seems that just yesterday I was exiting the forest under the warm and brilliant twilight of 9 p.m., but now the days are short and night always seems close by, creating By Shaun Kittle long shadows in the mid-afternoon as it hovers over us, its round yellow face grinning from the dark infinity of outer space. At Point au Roche the meadows and forests are preparing accordingly—they have hunkered down, ready for the Big Freeze. The wind, now unimpeded by foliage long fallen, will soon push through the naked vegetation like water passing through a sieve. Tree branches will crackle in response, coyote tracks will be reduced to powder as quickly as they are made, and Lake Champlain will heave with ice and broken timber. But for now, all is calm. I visit this place almost every week, sometimes sticking to the trails and other times foraging a path between them. I know the blue jay on Long Point well—he emits a hawk-like shriek at me every time I enter his meadow hangout. And the belted kingfisher, the one that snatches fish from the great open wetland near the bike path, is not a stranger, either. I love that I can visit this place when the days are short and never have to worry about running out of time. I love that I can visit after working all day in the summer and still get to be outside for a couple of fleeting hours. There is a lot to love here, and a lot to see. Along the trail to Middle Point I often take the right hand path, following its descent into a primeval forest of vinedraped white cedar. Unlike other areas at Point au Roche, this place looks nearly the same year-round. The vines hang like bloated serpents and the understory, even in the middle of summer, is almost non-existent, so when the snow finally penetrates the splayed leaves of the cedar boughs it simply turns the forest floor’s summertime brown to white. Out on Ram’s Head, the cliffs that define the point drop sharply into Lake Champlain, giving a fine view of the open water and some of the mountains in Vermont and the Adirondacks. In the summer the bay here is as relaxing as it is rugged, and in the winter its location secludes it from some of the worst of the lake’s wind. The walk back follows the shoreline — a jumbled mess of logs and broken stones that is transformed into a crude ice-sculpture garden as spring begins to break the lake’s frozen surface. Every aspect of the landscape is decorated, from the upturned shelves of jagged ice to the great icicle fangs that hang from branches and rock overhangs and have been bent sideways from constant exposure to the wind. It is somewhat unreasonable to play favorites with nature, but I do find myself constantly drawn to that spot in the meadow on Long Point, where the blue jay likes to perch. It is wonderful and open and dotted by stands of both red and white cedar, juniper, elderberry and all of the other things that flourish in open spaces. Walking through the waist-high vegetation two weeks ago, a flicker of campfire orange lit up the corner of my eye. I stopped and, upon closer inspection, found a monarch butterfly clinging to the stem of a milkweed plant like the last warm days of autumn beating back the encroaching frostcloaked mornings. It was a strange sight this late in the season, seemingly left behind by the annual monarch migration. I left the creature as I found it, slowly opening and closing its wings, and made my way up a small rise in the field, where I could see over the trees and on to Lake Champlain. Maybe we all cling to summer a little bit, but the seasons will go forth regardless of our wishes. Emitting a cloud of frozen water-vapor breath I turn away from the monarch, and the summer, and head home with the setting sun against my back. For information, visit friendsofpointauroche.org

t this time of year, many families are beginning to unpack their favorite, most cherished decorations and begin to spruce up their homes for the holiday season. Oscar We at the NCSPCA have some tips for you as to how to make your home both festive, and safe for your furry family members. First, keep any edible decorations (popcorn strings, candy canes, fruit) high enough off the floor so your pet won't be tempted to take a bite. Scented decorations or presents such as soaps can also be mistaken for food. Next, secure your tree firmly so your dog or cat can't knock it over. A curious cat may even attempt to climb your tree! Keep small ornaments well out of reach - a sparkly bit of tinsel or a string of lights may look pretty to you, but to your pet it may look like a

toy, or possibly a tasty treat. Decorative plants such as poinsettias and misteltoe can be toxic to your pets and should also be kept in a safe place. Be mindful of the location of candles and open flames, which can easily be knocked over by wagging tails or curious noses. Finally, be sure to clean as you go - don't give your furry friend a chance to swallow something harmful. You can learn more about holiday safety tips and pets from the Animal Planet website, http://www.animal.discovery.com/. Our featured pet this week is Oscar, a green-eyed, orange tabby Domestic Shorthair-mix who is quite a handsome fellow. This sweet boy has a very funny personality and a macho swagger when he walks. Oscar would love to be in a home where he can receive lots of lap time and play time with his forever family. He simply can't get enough attention! Oscar is hoping to catch the eye of the next person passing by his cage... in return, he promises to be a wonderful, affectionate companion. If you are looking for a frisky feline who will both keep you entertained and be a loyal friend, Oscar is the cat for you!

Joe Bodette, right, is welcomed by Dave Foster of Foster Motors in Middlebury, Vt. Bodette is the former owner of Frenchman’s Restaurant in Crown Point.

Former Crown Point businessman joins Foster Motors Joe Bodette on board

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — A man with Crown Point ties is the newest member of the sales team at Foster Motors in Middlebury, Vt. Joe Bodette, who owned Frenchman’s Restaurant in Crown Point along with his wife Cindy, now works for the Middlebury auto dealership. The Bodettes owned Frenchman’s nearly nine years before selling it this past summer. “I have an automotive background,” Bodette said. “Long before we went into the restaurant business I worked in the automotive industry. I’ve had a long relationship with Foster Motors and they’ve been great to me. When the opportunity to work here arose I jumped.” It was a difficult decision to leave the Crown Point restaurant, he said. “My wife and I decided we needed more balance in our lives,” Bodette said. “The restaurant was a 24-7 thing. Even when you weren’t physically at the restaurant you were thinking about it. “It was time to make a change,” he added. “With our grandchildren getting older, it was time to move on.” The local restaurant business had become more difficult the past few years as well. “When the bridge (the closure of the Lake Champlain Bridge in 2009) and the economy both collapsed at the same time things became much more difficult,” Bodette said. “We never really recovered from the bridge closure.” Cindy Bodette now works for Mountain Lake Services in Westport. The couple still owns Crown Point Barbecue, but is trying to sell it, too. “We finished the season, fulfilled all our commitments,” Bodette said of the barbecue business. “Now we’d like to sell that.” Bodette is hopeful he will see many of his New York area friends visit Foster Motors, which is located at 2149 Route 7 South in Middlebury. “I’d be happy to have them come visit,” he said. “I’d love to have them stop by and see what we have to offer.” Bodette can be reached at 802-388-9961 or jbodette@fostermotors.com

PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that at said public hearing to be held at the time and place set forth above, the Essex County Board of Supervisors will consider this proposed local law and hear all persons interested therein concerning the same. PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that a copy of the full text of such proposed local law may be obtained upon request from the Clerk of the Essex County Board of Supervisors. Dated: November 5, 2012 Deborah L. Palmer, Clerk Essex County Board of Supervisors P.O. Box 217, Court Street Elizabethtown, NY 12932 (518) 873-3353 T T- 11 / 1 7 / 1 2 - 1 T C 20743 ----------------------------TICONDEROGA FIRE DISTRICT 60 MONTCALM STREET TICONDEROGA, NY 12883 There seems to be a misconception about the Budget of the Ticonderoga Fire District. We as the Board of Fire Commissioners would like to clear this up. First the Board of Fire Commissioners is comprised of 5 Residents of the Fire District, who are elected 1 each year for a term of 5 years. This election is held every year on the second Tuesday of December. There is an appointed position of Treasurer and that

appointment is made at the Regular meeting in December. All meetings of the Board are held on the Third Monday of Each month, except for January and February due to Legal Holidays. The Ticonderoga Fire District is a taxing district just as the Town and the several different departments, only that the Town Board has no jurisdiction over the Fire Districts Budget. The Fire Districts Budget therefore does not affect the Town’s Tax Cap. The Town is required by Law to include the Fire Districts Budget into the tax rolls, collect the amount and issue payment to the district. The Fire District Budget is for this coming fiscal year at $350,180. The Operating budget is down from last year of $333,590. Compared to this year of $320,180. This year and the coming years there will be 2 Capital Reserves of $15,000 each. These Capital Reserves will help us complete some of our long term goals and help reduce the cost of borrowing large amounts to fund the Normal Operations of the Fire District. In 2018 alone we will have to replace all of the Air Packs and the Air Compressor. This alone could be up to a $200,000 project. As far as the Radio Project that Essex County is upgrading, this is a project that has been in the works for 5+ years. We are currently dispatched on High Band, Because of the large expense of this project the county decided to stay with Low Band Paging. There are only 4-5 Companies that are dispatched currently on High Band. This leads us to having to purchase "new" pagers. These pagers cost around $400. Each. We have

HEALTH just recently purchased 50 used pagers at a cost of about $6000. We will continue to look for quality "deals" with the taxpayers in mind. The County is supplying us with Mobile Radios for each vehicle and 3 of the Chiefs. We will be required to purchase a radio for the 3rd asst. Chief and Digital Portables to be able to communicate for fire ground and dispatch operations. There are many pieces of Equipment that have "service life" on them. Those items are figured into the Budget. One example would be that Hose has a service life of 10 years. Rather than buying about 10,000 feet of hose every ten years we purchase 1000 feet every year to replace the outdated hose. We feel that we are being as fiscally responsible as possible while still maintaining the level of service that the Residents of the Fire District deserve and want. The Ticonderoga Fire District is different than the Chilson Fire Protection District in the aspect that Chilson contracts with the Town for Fire Protection Services.
