Ti, Port Henry arrivals Nov. 30 By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The Canadian Pacific Railway “Holiday Train” will again visit Ticonderoga and Port Henry. The decorated train is scheduled to stop at the Ticonderoga train station at 4:45 p.m. and at the Port Henry train station at 6:15 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30. “Christmas will come a little early,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said, announcing the train’s visit. “People really look forward to it.” This will be the fifth year the train, covered with hundreds of holiday lights and carrying a live concert, will stop in Ti. It has stopped in Port Henry the past four years. Ticonderoga Supervisor Bob Dedrick suggests people park at Fort Ticonderoga and take a shuttle bus to the train station. He said there will also be a bus parked at the station so people will have a place to get warm. This year there will be no parking at the Ti boat launch or in the Fort Ticonderoga overflow lot across from the boat launch. “We are not letting any vehicles that are going to see the train go down the ferry road, Route 74,” Dedrick said. “All holiday train vehicles will have to go to the fort and get bused to the site, except handicapped. “The train will not be crossing the road and the event will be held entirely on the dirt road owned by the fort where those three houses are located,” he continued. “There will be large traffic signs and police officers directing all holiday traffic to the fort. Really, in essence, we are not holding this event on the road at all. We are leaving the road open.” Ticonderoga police will be located at the entrance to Fort Ticonderoga directing traffic, Dedrick said. International Paper Co. will provide temporary lighting for the area, Dedrick said.

TICONDEROGA — Library patrons in Ticonderoga are getting an early Christmas present. The Black Watch Memorial Library expansion project is complete and open to the community. An open house has been scheduled noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. The library will give out pencils, mints and bookmarks. New users can sign up for a card and people can view the improvements. There will be no ceremony. A formal dedication is scheduled for summer. “It’ll be very informal,” said Heather Johns, senior library clerk. “People are welcome to come it, look around and talk to our board members.” The project more than doubled the space in the library. The existing building was 1,405 square feet; the addition added another 1,450 square feet of space. The general contractor for the project was Bast Hatfield. The addition includes a reading room, a meeting room, a children’s room and allows for expanded programs and computer use. “We love it,” Johns said of the new-look library. “It came out even better than I imagined.”

Ticonderoga’s Hancock House, earlier known as the Headquarters House, is a reproduction of the Colonial Mansion built in Boston from 1737-1740 and occupied by John Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress and signer of the Declaration of Independence. It serves as home to the Ticonderoga Historical Society. The Headquarters House was erected in 1926 and presented to the New York State Historical Association by Horace A. Moses, a native son of Ticonderoga, to further the interest of the people of northeastern New York and the Lake Champlain and Lake George valleys in history and the fine arts. According to the Hancock Museum literature, the house was constructed as a replica of the John Hancock home which stood on Beacon Street in Boston and which was demolished in 1863 to make room for a new wing of the State House. John Hancock, a Revolutionary patriot, was a rich Boston merchant and his home was one of the finest of Colonial mansions.

Information meeting Dec. 2

Ticonderoga develops tourism plan By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga leaders have developed a plan they hope will attract tourists to the community. The Ticonderoga Quality Destination Plan has been formed by a group of local volunteers and a professional consultant. It includes 11 actions designed to boost local business through tourism. “This is really exciting,” Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick said. “We’ve been working with the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership and that’s going really well; now we Ti Supervisor have a second focus.” An informational meeting on the plan will be held Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Ti Armory on Champlain Avenue. The plan has been developed by representatives of the Ti town board, PRIDE, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, Ti Historical Society, the Essex County Industrial Development Agency, Ticonderoga Central School, North Country Community College, the Ti Heritage Museum, the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership, the Lake Placid/Essex County Visitors Bureau and local businesses. Assisting was Egret Communications, a consulting firm hired through the county visitors bureau with grant money. Ticonderoga was one of five Essex County communities to receive funding to develop a destination plan. The others are Schroon, Moriah, Wilmington and North Elba, which includes the village of Lake Placid. “Through discussions with a diverse committee we developed actions we need to take and responsible parties to implement those actions,” Dedrick said. The supervisor noted Fort Ticonderoga attracts

thousands of visitors to the community each year, but most of them are day visitors — many of whom never reach the hamlet. “We feel downtown Ti can be a destination point that can compliment the fort as a destination point,” he added. “We want to bring people from the fort into town and keep them here for a day or more. Lodgings, restaurants, all our businesses would be helped.” The plan calls for: — creation of a steering council to continually review and update the destination plan; — use of marketing to promote local activities and attractions; Bob Dedrick — construction and operation of a replica historic French sawmill along the LaChute River as a tourist attraction; — continued restoration and revitalization of the downtown area; — efforts to attract and expand tourism-related businesses and creation of incentives for more lodging; — appointment of a “point person” to lead efforts for funding private sector growth and government support of economic development; — strengthening Ticonderoga’s image as a history destination and planning more history-related events; — recruiting and developing an active arts community; — maintaining and extending the walk way along the LaChute River; — maintaining and expanding public access to water-related and outdoor recreational activities; and — providing hospitality and tourism training for local workers and residents.

French sawmill to serve as centerpiece of effort By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The centerpiece of the new Ticonderoga Quality Destination Plan is a replica sawmill that officials hope will become a tourist attraction. A French sawmill sat on the north side of the LaChute River near the falls in 1758, Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick said. Plans call for it to be reconstructed with grant money. “We feel this could be a major tourist attraction,” Dedrick said. “It would compliment the Ti Heritage Museum, which tells the story of Ti’s industrial history along the river. It ties in nicely to the historical nature of the community. “Everyone I’ve spoken to thinks this is a great idea,” he added. “Everyone’s on board with this.” Local officials have checked with regulatory agencies and there are no roadblocks to the construction — except funding. Local leaders are confident grant money can be found for the project. “We’ll start seeking grants in January and hope for a grant to be awarded in 2010,” Dedrick said. The sawmill project is one of the “highest priorities” of the Ticonderoga Quality Destination Plan, Dedrick said. The plan has been formed by a group of local volunteers and a professional consultant. It includes 11 actions designed to boost local business through tourism. The sawmill will be operational, making specialized items for sale, Dedrick explained. He said authentic 18th Century items such as poster beams are in high demand. The set up will be similar the authentic 18th Century sawmill operations in Taylor, N.H., and Sturbridge Village, Mass. The town of Ticonderoga will own and operate the planned sawmill, although Dedrick stressed it will be constructed with grant money and will be self-sufficient once built. No local tax money will be used for the project, he said. Environmental concerns such as noise and pollution have been investigated, the supervisor noted, along with esthetics and safety. “There’s virtually no noise and very little saw dust,” Dedrick said. “It’s a very clean operation.”

dition in Ticonderoga, will also begin that weekend at the Hancock House. “The Ticonderoga Historical Society’s Festival of Trees is an established community event held yearly at the Hancock House,” said Bill Dolback, historical society president. “We are encouraging the entire community to support the Ticonderoga Historical Society in this project. “We are extending an invitation to any local charity, non-profit organization, business, group or individual to decorate a tree and place it in the Hancock House for everyone to see during the upcoming holiday season,” he said. The trees will be on display through the end of December.

Fortunate to have good health care To the Times of Ti: How lucky we are to have access to good health care in our “back yard!” I would like to say thank you to all who treated me for my “busted” arm recently. From my good friend who delivered me to the Hudson Headwaters Health Network Health Center, to the awesome N.P. and nurse who triaged and transported me to the hospital. Radiology took me right in, and with the super technology of digital radiography, my X-rays were delivered to and read by the radiolo-

gist in a matter of minutes. Lucky for me, the Inter-Lakes orthopedic clinic was happening that day. The staff got me right in; the P.A. on duty fixed me right up. Everyone was pleasant and all had very caring attitudes. If it isn’t enough that we live in such a beautiful place, we are also fortunate to have good health care providers and the facilities to help keep us healthy. Karen Costello Hague

T

he Chamber of Commerce is a form of business network. Business owners in towns and cities form these local societies to advocate on behalf of the business community. The Ticonderoga Chamber of Commerce was organized at a meeting at the Elks Building in 1925 and promptly elected A. B. Drake as its first president. The steering committee was composed of T. E. Warren, M.J. Wilcox and I.Rothchild. Dues were $25 a year. During the first few years of existence, the members worked diligently to advocate building the Vermont/ New York bridge at the Ticonderoga Ferry Landing site. George Spring, Stephen Potter, J. Gordon Michaels, Mortimer Ferris, Ken Shults, Freeman Pond, and A. G. Adkins were active members during the 1920s. They strived to attract new business to Ticonderoga, started a medical insurance program for the members and lobbied the town fathers for road improvements. Annual banquets were enjoyed. By 1932 the group was very active and sought federal funds to establish our airport which was finally completed in 1939. Information booths were built at Moses Circle and established at Simpkins Hardware Store. Membership was $10 and there were 73 members. President Roosevelt signed a bill giving $2,000 for architectural plans for the Armory building and a series of winter sports programs were held at the fort. The 1940s were a most productive time for the chamber. The town beach was acquired by popular vote, and a beach bus was scheduled to make three trips daily, charging 25 cents a round trip for adults and 10 cents for children. Parking meters were installed on Montcalm Street — 5 cents for an hour and 1 cent for 12 minutes. A campaign was begun to raise funds for a new wing on The Moses Ludington Hospital. In 1942, System Properties, a subsidiary of International Paper, advocated removal of a dam and wished to restore the natural dam at the outlet of Lake George. The chamber joined in this proposal, which was defeated. This would have had a great impact on the town. Some readers will remember having an Adirondack Trancit Bus Station here.

OPINION • TIMES OF TI - 7

The case of the confused cashier H

as this ever happened to you? You finish filling your cart with the week’s groceries, head to the checkout lane and place your items on the conveyor belt. The cashier announces the total and you hand over a nice stack of coupons. Then, the cashier pauses. You hear the words, "I don’t think we take coupons from the Internet." The cashier By Jill Cataldo hands them back to you and you ponder what to do next. While most of my shopping trips run very smoothly, occasionally even your Coupon Queen encounters a cashier issue or two. So what do we shoppers do? One of our biggest tools to deal with checkout problems is the store’s coupon policy. Most stores have a written policy that states exactly how they handle coupons presented in the checkout lane. Many stores post the policies on their Web sites and others have a copy at the customer service counter in the store itself. What’s in a coupon policy? Information that shoppers can use to better plan our shopping trips! Coupon policies state specifics such as, We accept Internet coupons, We accept expired coupons or We accept competitors’ coupons. Everything we need to know about what kinds of coupons our stores should accept is spelled out for us right in the store’s policy. Armed with this knowledge, well-informed shoppers know exactly what coupons our stores should accept! The most commonly heard issue with cashiers does involve the store’s acceptance of printable Internet coupons. If you’re told that the store does not accept them, ask to see a copy of the store’s coupon policy. Most grocery stores and supermarkets do accept Internet coupons that are legitimately printed and are not photocopies. Unfortunately, due to the rise in coupon fraud, stores are getting more stringent about the kinds of Internet coupons that they will accept. Most legitimate Internet coupons contain a unique ID

Coupon Queen

or barcode identifier and several other key features that stores use to ascertain a coupon’s validity. And any time the Coupon Information Corporation, a nonprofit organization that monitors coupon fraud, identifies a new, counterfeit coupon, it sends stores an alert to watch for coupons known to be fraudulent or counterfeit. However, when a fraud alert goes out, sometimes it has a ripple effect. Our stores learn that a new counterfeit coupon has been spotted in circulation. Instead of homing in on the specific coupon mentioned in the alert, some cashiers may find it easier not to accept any Internet coupons. This not only hurts shoppers, it hurts stores, too, since the large number of Internet coupons are legitimate and perfectly fine for the store to accept. Marketers reimburse stores for the full value of every coupon shoppers redeem, whether the coupon ran in the newspaper, appeared in newspaper inserts, was found on a product package or was printed legitimately from the Internet. Would you like another piece of the cashier/coupon policy puzzle? I’ve heard from many cashiers that they get very little training on their store’s coupon policy. This puts coupon-savvy shoppers in an unusual situation. It’s possible that you may be more familiar with a store’s coupon policy than the cashier is. If you find yourself in this situation, never force the issue. Simply ask the cashier to check the store’s policy with the manager. You can politely let the cashier know that you’ve read it to make sure that all of the coupons you’re presenting are acceptable. A cashier issue most likely stems from a little confusion that isn’t the cashier ’s fault at all. A cashier who questions your coupons may simply be trying to protect the store and do what they believe is right. We’ll continue to discuss commonly heard cashier coupon issues in the weeks ahead. © CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal.

“Warm Words Of Gratitude” Some People Make a Difference There are wonderful people who give from their hearts in thoughtful and unselfish ways, So willing to share, help out, or be there no matter how busy their days. This goes out to all who put everything aside and showed strength and courage to a young boy named “Jack Wallace” who was in need of our care. On July 3, 2009 it had been one year since Jack’s accident on Lake George and I wanted to share all the amazing moments that Jack and his family have shared with me. In these pictures of Jack you can see his strength and determination not to give up and to have his wonderful family behind him the whole way. Jack has been faced with many different challenges but he continues on his journey. Today do to all the strength and courage of everyone on that day we made a difference in someone’s life. First to Jack’s Dad “John” and his brother for their fast thinking and taking control and started the care Jack needed. Also to The Hague Emergency and Firefighters, to all the nurses and doctors at Moses Ludington for their quick response you’re a blessing to me and to Jack’s family. Throughout the past year I have kept Jack and his family in my thoughts and my prayers. How things that can seem so important each day really mean nothing at all compared to the warmth and the blessing we have shared through letters and pictures. In these pictures you see a smile that can light up a room and to see the determination and the strength that Jack has accomplished over the past year everyone should truly be proud that you were a part of saving this young boy’s life. Jack has experienced many things with his family by his side like swimming with the dolphins in Florida, flying an airplane and one picture that just made my heart stop was to see Jack riding a bike which I can remember him saying to us while in the hospital in Burlington I will never be able to do the things I used to do “Wow Jack you did it”. A special thanks to Tony Morrette who heard the cry for help over the radio and did the right response to get Jack the help he needed. I know that I have a special place in my heart for Jack and his family but I know there is one more person that feels the same way I do. To Matt Watts who took the time as we both did to visit Jack and his family in Burlington to give Jack the strength to fight and courage to keep going. Matt and I have sons who are about the same age as Jack so we took him under our wing and prayed a lot and shared our thoughts wondering if we did the right thing but now Matt and I know deep down in our hearts we did all of us did look at these pictures. Hearts like ours remember we have shared laughs and many tears. We all should be proud of what we did together as a team, all the sharing heart to heart and though the world keeps changing we keep right on proving that we do make a difference in this world. This is just a reminder that you all are very special at what you do and I just wanted to say “Thank You”. You’re appreciated today and always. Just remember those words Jack said to us “Thank you for saving my life”. Always remember the hills ahead are never as steep as they seem, and with faith in your heart, start upward and climb ‘til you reach your dream. To everyone start out today with faith in your heart and climb ‘til your dream comes true. Always and Forever, Renee Swinton - Hague Emergency Captain

State Sen. Betty Little and Ticonderoga Supervisor Bob Dedrick cut a ribbon dedicating Ticonderoga’s new Gateway Park. Little secured $25,000 in state funds for the park project. The Ti town highway department installed the poles. A.T. Morette installed the electrical connections and up-lighting for the flags. “It is expected that this team effort will result in the expansion of economic benefits from tourism for Ticonderoga, its historic downtown, and all area businesses and attractions,” said Susan Rathbun of the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership. The Ticonderoga Heritage Museum/Visitor Center also got $25,000 from Little for design and fabrication of a new water power exhibit expected to be officially open in the spring of

2010. The new exhibit tells the story of the LaChute River and the industries that grew and prospered along its banks, according to Sylvia Boyce, museum president. “It also incorporates a number of scale models of these industries that were designed and built by talented museum trustee, Denise Huestis,” Boyce said. “We very much appreciate Sen. Little’s continuing support for the efforts of Ticonderoga and its citizen volunteers,” Dedrick said. “She is a real friend of our North Country.”

Skate park gets improvements TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Skate Park and warming hut got a facelift this fall. The skate park, located at the corner of Burgoyne Street and Elk Road, was established in 1992. The porous pad that accommodates ice skating in the winter and skate boarding in the summer has been a heavily used area by local youth. This summer a piece of skate boarding equipment was purchased by Connecting Youth and Communities with a grant from the Ronald McDonald Charities and some local fundraising that the youth involved with the development of a skate park raised. The local parks and recreation committee identified the need for the entire rink area to be fenced. Alex Moser approached CYC and PRIDE of Ticonderoga in search of a community enhancement project. Moser is a Life Scout in the Boy Scouts of America; Ticonderoga Troop 72, working towards his Eagle Scout award. “We identified the skate park as a possible project including the repair of the warming hut that was donated by the Kiwanis in 1992 and installing new fencing that would completely enclose the skate park,” said Kristi Mars of CYC. “Alex took on the effort completely and was able to raise over $1,000 of donations towards the project.” Sponsors for the project include PRIDE of Ticondero-

Sen. Little lauded

TICONDEROGA — Betty Little had a chance to see the fruits of her labor during a visit to Ticonderoga recently. The state senator attended the dedication of Ti’s new Gateway Park, toured the updated Ticonderoga Heritage Museum/Visitor Center and crossed the reconstructed Frasier Bridge — all projects completed with money Little secured. “We’re going to make this Sen. Little Day in Ticonderoga,” Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick said during the Gateway Park dedication. “There are so many people to thank, particularly Sen. Little.” LIttle deflected the praise. “It’s amazing to see what good people can do when they put their heads together and work together,” Little said. “It’s a great gateway to the community. I’m very pleased, very impressed with what you’ve been able to do.” Gateway Park is located at the intersection of Montcalm Street and Route 22/74. It was designed by the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership in an attempt to attract Fort Ticonderoga visitors into the hamlet. It features five flags — American, Canadian, British, French and New York State — on lighted, 30-foot tall poles, an information kiosk and plants. “It’s taking shape,” Dedrick said of the park, which still needs some landscaping and signage. “More than 80,000 people come down this road (from Fort Ti) each summer. We want them to notice we’re here. It (the park) is inviting those people to visit us.” Little provided $25,000 in state money for the park project. Peter Reale, a member of the design committee, researched and recommended the types of poles to order.

Midnight Madness coming to Port Henry By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com PORT HENRY — Christmas will arrive in Port Henry Thursday, Dec. 3. That’s when the Town of Moriah Chamber of Commerce will host its 20th annual Moriah Midnight Madness. “We want people to enjoy the holiday atmosphere and have a lot of fun,” said Jack Woods, chamber president. “I hope they’ll come out and

enjoy the entertainment, refreshments and support the local businesses.” Midnight Madness will begin at 5 p.m. and feature store sales, giveaways, street vendors, music, fire truck rides for the children, candy, face painting, balloons, games and more. Santa will arrive on a Port Henry Fire Department truck and will meet with children — and adults — at the Lee House on Main Street. Brandy Lacey will sing Christmas carols 6-8 p.m. at the Lee House. There will also be Christmas caroling and fire

truck rides for children. The Moriah Central School band and chorus have also been invited to entertain. Midnight Madness has long been a popular event, Woods said, with families as well as local merchants. “It’s a success,” he said of the annual event. “It’s a good shot in the arm for local businesses at the beginning of the month. Hopefully people will continue to shop right through Christmas.”

Moriah adopts 2010 budget By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

Carter Manfred, a pre-kindergarten student at Moriah Central School, shows his support for the school football team. The Vikings advanced to the state Class D championship game.

PORT HENRY — Town taxes in Moriah will remain stable in 2010. The 2010 town budget calls for no tax increase for residents living outside the village of Port Henry, while Port Henry residents will see a 5 percent hike. The spending plan for next year totals $3,918,016. That’s a 1 percent increase from the 2009 budget of $3,870,335. The amount to be raised by taxes for residents outside the village of Port Henry is $1,573,370 — exactly the same as 2009. The amount to be raised by taxes for residents of the village of Port Henry in 2010 will be $1,345,370. That’s 5 percent more than the 2009 total of $1,279,673. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava explained the town tax increase in the village relates to county sales tax revenue. In 2010 each municipality in the county will receive .25 percent of county sales tax. Moriah trustees decided to use their share, $118,000, to offset town taxes. Port Henry officials decided to use their share of the county sales tax revenue, $28,500, elsewhere. Tax rates in both municipalities will go down in 2010. The tax rate for residents living outside the village of Port Henry will be $7.96 per $1,000 of assessed val-

ue in 2010. That’s down from the present tax rate of $8.98. The town tax rate for residents of the village of Port Henry will be $6.51 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2010. That’s down from the present tax rate of $6.89. Scozzafava explained much of the tax rate decease can be attributed to property revaluation conducted in the town this year. Taxable value of land in Moriah will be $206,809,431 in 2010, an increase from the 2009 value of $185,836,094. “Most people, if their assessments remain the same, will see a tax decrease,” Scozzafava said. “We (town trustees) are doing our part holding the line on taxes.” Scozzafava pointed out a non-village resident with a home valued at $100,000 will pay $796 in town taxes in 2010, down from $898 in 2009. A Port Henry resident will pay $651 in town taxes in 2010, down from $698 in 2009. The 2010 budget includes 3 percent pay increases for all town employees. The town clerk and highway superintendent will also get 3 percent raises, while all other elected officials get no pay hike. It’s the third consecutive year elected officials have not received a pay raise in Moriah. Moriah employees will pay an additional 1 percent of their health insurance costs in 2010, bringing the their total contribution to 10 percent. The town will spend $517,324 on employee health insurance in 2010 — 13 percent of the entire budget.

Elizabethtown hospital adds community relations staff ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital has announced the appointment of Jane Hooper as director of community relations. The director of community relations is responsible for the hospital’s marketing efforts, along with media relations, coordinating the volunteer program, working closely with the hospital auxiliary, fundraising and special event planning. “This is an exciting time to join the hospital,” stated Hooper. “The recent expansion is a tremendous asset to our area. The hospital has added a variety of services, along with

state-of-the-art equipment in recent years; I’m thrilled to be able to share this information with our local community.” Originally from Elizabethtown, Hooper attended Brock University in Ontario, Canada. She has experience in marketing and public relations. According to Rod Boula, hospital administrator and CEO, the hospital is pleased to have Hooper on staff. “Now that the hospital’s construction process is complete, Jane’s marketing and public relations experience will allow the hospital to effectively deliver its message to

the region”, he stated. “Much of the hospital’s equipment has been upgraded in recent years, allowing for enhanced patient care. Digital mammograms, a new unit for bone density testing, telemedicine capabilities and expansion of our dialysis room showcase a few of the hospital’s capabilities. Soon, the hospital will be offering MRIs and chemotherapy services. The hospital needs to ensure that the community knows it can get these services close to home.” Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH) is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital primarily serving communities that are

home to over 30,000 full-time residents, along with thousands of tourists and seasonal residents. In 2008, it treated 730 inpatients and over 4,600 emergency room patients. ECH has a network of primary health care clinics in Elizabethtown, Wilmington and Westport, and also houses a Veterans Clinic. The hospital maintains a 24-hour emergency room and a large variety of specialty clinics staffed by board certified physicians. The hospital has 185 employees.

SCHROON LAKE • TIMES OF TI - 13

Schroon eyes increased tourism By Gretchen Porier gretchen@denpubs.com SCHROON LAKE — More hotel rooms may hold the key to future economic growth in the town of Schroon. That’s the assessment of the Schroon Quality Destination Plan, which has been formed by a group of local volunteers and a professional consultant. It looks at ways to boost local business through tourism. Assisting with the plan was Egret Communications, a consulting firm hired through the Essex County/Lake Placid VIsitors Bureau with grant money. Schroon was one of five Essex County communities to receive funding to develop a destination plan. The others are Ticonderoga, Moriah, Wilmington and North Elba, which includes the village of Lake Placid. “Recapture the magic of Schroon Lake” is the vision of the plan, while increasing jobs and businesses is the goal — all while maintain-

Mark Whitney ing the small town atmosphere. The Schroon tourism committee, along with Egret Communications representative Bob Harvey, unveiled the master plan during a meeting on Nov. 11 in the town hall. Schroon is one of the selected towns based on an assessment that looked at the long history of tourism, recent progress the town has made in regards to its business downtown, and events the town hosts in the summer season. The assessment also looked at the need for more year round tourist activity,

Former court clerk faces felony charge NORTH HUDSON — A former North Hudson town court clerk has been arrested and charged with a felony after more than $2,000 went missing from the town court. According to state police, Diane M. Harnichar-Wood, 53, formerly of North Hudson, was arrested Nov. 12 after an audit, requested by the Essex County District Attorney's Office, revealed that $2,225 was missing from the North Hudson town court between January

2006 and December 2008. Harnichar-Wood was the court’s clerk from January 2006 until her resignation in August 2008, police said. She was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, police said.

the need for current and competitive lodging, and addresses the curb appeal of downtown. The primary action identified is the creation of 100 units — rooms — of competitive lodging within Schroon by 2012. The tourist committee stated there are 94 existing units in Schroon Lake, with about a third needing extensive upgrades. More rooms in town, according to the report, would mean more business for restaurants and retail stores, thus creating more jobs and revenue. Other actions mentioned in the plan are to continue with music and art events, expand equipment rentals for out door activities, boost curb appeal along Route 9,and increase year round experiences. Some expressed concerns about changing the community’s character. “We don’t want July 4th every day.” Mark Whitney, a committee member, said. Harvey said the plan is

designed to attract a moderate number of people who spend more while staying in Schroon Lake. Concerns verbalized by residents who attended where the increase in traffic and the building of a chainstyle hotel to satisfy the need for lodging. The tourist committee members informed the group a formal traffic study had not been done. The history of the town indicates a capability to accommodate a traffic increase. The concern of a chain hotel moving into Schroon Lake was addressed with a reference to incorporating architectural standards. The standards would help to maintain the character and strengthen the appeal of Schroon Lake. To fully activate the plan the tourist committee emphasized the need for the residents of Schroon Lake to become involved. The entire master plan, updates and progress can be viewed at www.essextourismplan.com.

A ferry was brought to Crown Point Nov. 19 as a test of a proposed ferry service to be located near the existing Lake Champlain Bridge. The bridge closed Oct. 16 because of safety concerns.

Ferry service being readied

New Champlain bridge still two years away By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — Construction of a new bridge across Lake Champlain in Crown Point will cost $67 million and take 22 months to complete. Those are the estimates of state Department of Transportation engineers. The bridge was closed Oct. 16 after severe cracks and erosion were discovered in its concrete pillars. DOT’s report on the span said the bridge could be permanently repaired at a cost of $84 million with the work taking about 30 months. The report says short-term repairs to the bridge would cost $22 million and could be done in nine months but would extend its life by only five years. State Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Stanley Gee announced Nov. 16 that the bridge will be torn down and replaced with a new bridge. He declined to give a timetable for the work.

The Lake Champlain Bridge is 80 years old. The report said the life span for such bridges is 75 years. “Given these inherent risks to rehabilitation options, we must recommend against rehabilitation options and believe they should be dismissed from further study,” the report said. “The risk and safety for personnel working in close proximity to the existing, fragile bridge is too great to permit rehabilitation in any form.” While a new bridge is being constructed DOT is planning a ferry service just south of the existing span for motorists. Engineers hope to have the ferry working by year ’s end. Two ferries would be employed at the same time, running 24 hours a day, each able to carry 60 vehicles, including commuter cars, farm vehicles and tractor-trailer trucks. “We are working around the clock to establish an additional year-round ferry service near the existing bridge and are working with the federal government and Vermont to build a new bridge in Crown Point so that life in this corridor can return to normal as quickly as possible,” New York Gov. David Paterson said.

Vikings play for title today By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

Ron Schofield carried the load on offense for Moriah in its semifinal win, running for 266 yards and two touchdowns for the locals. Moriah ran 52 offensive plays from scrimmage and Schofield carried on 38 of them. He also caught a pass, giving him 39 touches in 52 plays. Photo by Nancy Frasier

PORT HENRY — In 2008 the Moriah Central School football team posted an undefeated regular season en route to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D championship game. The Vikings were 12-1, setting records galore and exciting an entire community. It couldn’t happen again — could it? Yes. The Vikings advanced to this year ’s state title game with a 22-13 win over Eldred Nov. 20. They face Section VI champion Randolph for the state title today at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse. Moriah used its tried and true formula to beat Eldred — a strong running game and a rugged defense. Ron Schofield carried the load on offense, running for 266 yards and two touchdowns for the locals. Moriah ran 52 offensive plays from scrimmage and Schofield carried on 38 of them. He also caught a pass, giving him 39 touches in 52 plays. While Schofield carried the ball, the heavy lifting was left to his offensive line — Hayden Whalen, Dylan Orr, John Petro, Sergio Camacho, Wally Edwards, Jud Zelinski, TJ Brassard and Josh Clarke. Moriah broke on top as Nick Gilbo crashed into the end zone from two yards away early in the opening period. Ryan Mascarenas booted the extra point for a 7-0 Viking lead. It was Moriah’s defense that came up big next. Eldred drove to the Moriah 3 yard line where the Vikings held on downs to preserve the lead. A Viking fumble set up a 21-yard TD run by Eldred’s Ian Halloran to make it a 7-6 game at intermission.

14 Annual tthh

Viking fans bask in victory In the third period Schofield scored on runs of 2 and 59 yards and Moriah stretched its advantage to 19-6. But that breathing room quickly evaporated as Eldred connected on a 73-yard pass play to set up a yard TD run by Halloran on the first play of the final quarter. Moriah iced the game with two minutes to play when Mascarenas booted a 21-yard field goal for a nine-point lead, 2213. The Viking defense came up big throughout the game. It held Eldred to 100 yards rushing and 124 yards passing, 73 of which came on one play. Other than the big pass play, Moriah held Eldred to 4 yards total offense in the second half. Moriah recorded five sacks, three by Edwards and two by Nate Gilbo. The Vikings also had two interceptions by Mike Speshock and Ralph Schofield.

Absentee ballots counted

Sprague wins district attorney race By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The count of absentee ballots has upheld Kristy Sprague’s victory in the race for Essex County District Attorney. Sprague finished with a 125-vote lead over incumbent Julie Garcia after Essex County Board of Elections officials completed their count of more than 850 absentee ballots Nov. 16. With more than 12,000 votes counted on election night, Sprague, who ran on the Republican and Independent lines, held just a 75-vote lead over Garcia, who ran as a Democrat. Tabulation of absentee ballots began Nov. 12 under the close scrutiny of County Attorney Daniel Manning and lawyers representing both Garcia and

Sprague. Both candidates picked up hundreds more votes, but as Sprague’s lead slowly grew, Garcia ultimately admitted defeat. “Kristy has won the race, and I congratulate her and wish her success,” said Garcia. “I wish her well in her new position.” Sprague said she was very pleased with the results and how the absentee votes followed the typical trend of mirroring results on election day. Both candidates expressed satisfaction with the counting process. “It went pretty smoothly,” said Sprague, “I thought once the attorneys were involved, things would be pretty contentious, but everyone was very congenial. I think it was a good process.” “It was an extremely close race, and I’m satisfied with the results,” said Garcia.

Sprague will take office Jan. 1. Until then, she’s hoping to put the elections behind her and prepare for the next four years as District Attorney. “I look forward to fulfilling the promises I made to the voters and making some positive changes in the county,” she said. One of the most immediate changes Sprague expects to make is in the way the office will handle its cases. “First and foremost, I think we need to take a look at the allocation of cases to the staff,” said Sprague, noting her desire to be a hands-on prosecutor. “We’ll look at the staffing and what we, as a team, can do in the future.” She’ll also be working to get up to speed on some of the cases slated to be tried in January, such as the homicide case facing Michael

Smith for his alleged fatal shooting of Leo Hickey in a hunting accident last fall. Garcia has already submitted a proposed 2010 budget for the District Attorney’s office. The budget is still subject to change, however, as the Essex County Board of Supervisors works to finalize it in the coming weeks. “I’m sure if Kristy wants to make any changes, the board would be amenable to the changes she suggests,” said Garcia. Garcia expressed appreciation for the support she’s received in the race and said she was proud of her campaign, despite the loss. “I feel wholeheartedly that, although we didn’t come out on top, it was a very successful campaign on many different levels,” she said. Her future at this point remains unclear, but Garcia said she is op-

timistic given the record of the District Attorney’s office during her term. “I want to thank all the people who worked so hard on the campaign,” said Garcia, “and I want to thank the people of Essex County for giving me the privilege of serving them over these past four years. It’s been an experience that’s been very rewarding.” Still, the rewards of victory await Sprague, who also expressed gratitude to those who helped her attain it. “I want to thank all my supporters, and especially the voters, for sticking with me through this long and trying election,” said Sprague. “I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Ti Junior Miss awards given

St. Mary’s School kindergarten students have received a “alphabet caterpillar” donated by Mary Marra of Heritage Commons in Ticonderoga.

Train From page 1 In Port Henry there will be parking at the town hall, Wheelock’s, the Knights of Columbus, NuWay Laundry and along Main Street. There will be handicap parking only at the train station. Buses will also transport people from Moriah Central School to and from the train station. The goal of the “Holiday Train” is to collect food and money for local food banks and to raise awareness in the fight against hunger. At each event, the train provides a box car stage, musical talent and a corporate contribution to the local food bank. The community, in turn, is encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community. “CP Rail does this annual event to promote awareness of people who need help with providing food for their families,” said Margaret Beuerlein of the Ti Food pantry. “Everyone attending is asked to bring a non-perishable food item which will go to the Ticonderoga Food Pantry to assist residents of Ticonderoga and Putnam.” Now in its ninth year in North America, Canadian Pacific Railway’s two lighted “Holiday Trains” — one in the eastern U.S. and Canada and another in the Midwest — carrying live musical shows performed from boxcar stages in an effort to end

hunger. Since the “Holiday Train” program began in 1999, more than $4 million and 2 million pounds of food have been collected. In the U.S. Northeast, the “Holiday Train” will embark on its journey Nov. 26 in Scranton, Pa., finishing Nov. 30 in Plattsburgh. Prescott and Adam Puddington, along with guests Shaun Verreault and Willy Porter, will provide live music at each event stop. Prescott is Kaylen and Kelly Prescott, a brother and sister duo. They are third-generation musicians and songwriters. As children and grandchildren of performers, they were immersed in touring life. They have performed on the” Holiday Train” in the past. Puddington is a singer/songwriter from Almonte, Ontario. He grew up listening to the trains rumble through his town and continues to be fascinated by them to this day, as is evident in the lyrics of songs on each of his three solo releases. Verreault is the lead singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer for Canadian blues rock trio Wide Mouth Mason. WMM have sold hundreds of thousands of albums and toured with bands like AC/DC and The Rolling Stones. His solo music endeavors have taken him to Afghanistan, Greece and the Middle East. Porter is a songwriter and recording artist who just released How to rob a bank. He has toured with artists as diverse as Jeff Black and Tori Amos.

Ti From page 1 The project also made the library fully handicap accessible. “One of the main goals of the project was to make the library completely handicap accessible,” Johns said. “We accomplished that.” A library expansion has been in the works for two decades, explained Steve Whitford, a Ticonderoga town councilor who serves on the library committee. With an initial price tag of $1 million, the library just couldn’t find the money, he said. “About four years ago we scaled back the plans and things really started to happen,” Whitford said. The expansion project cost $565,000. The money came from grants and donations. The Black Watch Memorial Library was built in 1905 with funds from Andrew Carnegie, who funded 1,946 libraries throughout the United States between 1881 and 1917. Every year, the Black Watch Library has more than 23,000 visits and circulates 24,000 books.

Remember to take your pills We forget things every day - people’s names, our keys or whether we lock the front door. But when it comes to taking your medicines, don’t let your memory fail you. Taking medicines the right way could mean the difference between life and death. You can take simple steps to remember what medicines to take, and when to take them. Keeping track of different medications can be a problem for every body, whether you’re young or old. But as you get older, you tend to have more illnesses, so it’s likely you’ll need to take more medications. Unfortunately, aging often brings a gradual loss of memory, which can make it even harder to keep track of your medications. Tips to Remember Your Medicines: • Make a checklist of all the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you need to take each day. • Post your checklist in an obvious location in your home. Keep another copy in your wallet or purse. • Use a pillbox that keeps track of a week’s worth of medications. • Make taking medicines part of your daily routine. • Try to fill all your prescriptions at the same pharmacy, so all your records are in one place. • Talk to your doctor about all the medications, remedies and vitamins you use. Your doctor can make sure they’ll work together safely and effectively. “STAY HEALTHY” CAREGIVER TIPS

“Stay healthy” caregiver tips Caregivers are less likely than others to take steps to prevent or control chronic disease. Taking care of your own health will help you to better care for your loved one longer. Don’t neglect your health. • Get a yearly check-up and recommended cancer screenings. • Tell your doctor if you are feeling depressed or anxious. • Take some time each day to do something for yourself. • Eat healthy foods and do not skip meals. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t try to do it all yourself.

SATURDAY November 28, 2009 when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.” I’d like to see New York institute a statewide, school based initiative to promote youth participation in the outdoors. Although numerous public and private groups are currently working to get youth interested and involved in the outdoors; the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation should be charged with the responsibility for developing a comprehensive educational/recreational program for the schools. Such a program could be be offered as a component of physical education or wellness. Increasing youth participation in outdoors is one of the major issues facing the recreation industry today. If young people are not introduced to these opportunities at an early age, they will engage in other hobbies and interests. Remember, it’s human nature to follow the path of least resistance. The necessity of fostering the next generation of hunters, anglers, hikers, bikers, climbers, skiers and paddlers is one of the most pressing needs of the current conservation community. Today’s children will be tomorrow's policy makers. They will be making the decisions about the utilization and protection of our shared natural resources. In order to insure the viability of these lands and waters in the future, we must make efforts in the current day. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

In the Adirondacks, the most readily available local

The mountains, forests, lakes and streams of the Adirondacks provide an unlimited spectrum of outdoor recreation opportunities. Key to unlocking these treasures is the involvement of one responsible, adult mentor to introduce a kid to the outdoors. For the sake of your community, step up, step out and be that special person. Children will remember you!

Get the kids outside!

Adirondack guide and naturalist, Ed Kanze of Bloomingdale, with daughter Tassie on his shouloders, recognizes the importance of instilling an appreciation for the outdoors in his children. In Tassie's little hands squirms a small Dusky salamander that the team caught in a local creek.

H

istorically, rural communities have provided their local youth with few opportunities for structured recreation beyond the scope of school sports or summer youth program offerings. Most small towns don't have the malls, gyms, movie theaters or civic centers typically found in larger communities. Recreation is often left to a child’s imagination, which can be a positive or negative outlet, depending on the direction we provide. Today’s kids are presented with a wealth of electronic attractions ranging from computers, to video games to cell phones and beyond. They will make due with the resources that are available to them.

recreational resources are our woods and waters. The region is blessed with a wealth of natural attractions that attract travelers from all over the world to play in our big backyard. In recent years, I’ve researched a number of opportunities and programs designed to introduce local children to the outdoors. I’ve been encouraged with what I’ve found and I’m thrilled with the range and diversity of the offerings. Throughout the Adirondacks, there are numerous opportunities for children, and their parents to develop the appropriate skills, outdoor education and appreciation to effectively enjoy the local environment. Best of all, most of the programs are offered at little or no cost. If our children don't possess the necessary tools, skills and knowledge to utilize their surroundings, they are severely disadvantaged and underprivileged. It is a fact of life in the North Country, we must provide our own recreation! We go outside because it is in our nature to go outside. We go out to climb the mountains and to paddle the rivers, to fish the streams, to photograph the scenes and to plunge into the ponds or ski the hills. We do such things to stay in touch with something inside our being, to expand our horizons and to test ourselves. When we cease to do such things we are no longer alive, we are simply existing. There are few activities that foster the bond between parents and their children than participating in outdoor adventures, simply enjoying the woods together. The outdoors offers inclusive activities that allow both adults and kids to share equally in the experience. Such activities require cooperation and trust between adults and kids while helping to instill traditional values, connectivity with nature and a healthy lifestyle. A parent will discover more about their child in an hour of playing together than can be accomplished in a lifetime of conversation. Shared play is the most genuine act that children and adults can know. It is a fact known throughout history. Herodotus, the Greek historian claimed that: “Man is most nearly himself
