Ti taxes to increase 3.6 percent By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga taxes will increase 3.6 percent in 2011. The Ti town board adopted a $5 million budget for next year at its Nov. 11 meeting. The budget totals $5,075,754, an increase of $123,785 — 2.5 percent — from the 2010 spending plan of $4,951,960. The 2011 tax levy will be $4,015,402, an increase of $140,262 — 3.6 percent — from the 2010 tax levy of $3,875,140. While taxes are going up next year, tax rates will decline because a revaluation of the town has increased assessments. The 2011 tax rate in the Ticonderoga fire district will be $7.34 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s down from the current tax rate of

late it doesn’t make sense to invest money in old equipment,” she said. “The sweeper is important because it collects sand and gravel, keeping it out of the wastewater system. That saves us money. The payloader will be shared between the highway and water departments.” The other major increase in the 2011 budget is a 9.5 percent hike in employee health insurance costs. Malaney pointed out the 2011 spending plan contains no pay increases for any town employee or elected official. “I feel badly about that,” she said. “Town employees work very hard for the taxpayers. I wish we could have given them something, but it can’t be done this year.” The budget eliminates four jobs through attrition, three in the highway department and one on the water

$9.56. The tax rate next year in the Chilson fire district will be $7.74 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s down from the current tax rate of $10.13. “We worked very hard on this budget,” Supervisor Deb Malaney said. “Balancing increasing expenses with deceasing revenues is very tough.” The town board made cuts across the board in an effort to limit spending. “Every department made sacrifices,” Malaney said. “We took something from everyone.” The exception is in the highway department budget, which increased $118,720 to a total of $1,682,700. Malaney explained the department needs to purchase a street sweeper and a payloader. Both will be used, she said. “When repair costs esca-

Deb Malaney department. The board added $20,000 to the spending plan for part-time help to offset those retirements. “We feel it’s a fiscallysound budget,” Malaney said. “The board members are taxpayers as well. We know how difficult things are for many people and worked to control spending.”

Ti fined for highway garage pollution By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The state Department of Environmental Conservation has fined Ticonderoga $210,000 for problems discovered earlier this year at the town highway garage. The town has not actually paid any of the fines, though, in an agreement with the DEC that has allowed most of the fine money to be used to clean up the pollution and correct the problems. Ticonderoga still owes the DEC about $16,000. “We haven’t had to pay anything to DEC, but I wouldn’t say we weren’t fined,” Ti Supervisor Deb Malaney said.

DEC ordered the town to excavate and remove tons of contaminated soil. Besides removing polluted soil, the highway department was also being required to connect the floor drain to the public sewer system, upgrade its containment systems, improve its fuel storage area and keep smaller amounts of fuel on site, Malaney said. That work has all been done at a cost of about $180,000, Malaney said. The supervisor praised the highway department for working with DEC and correcting the problems. “The highway department did an exemplary job in addressing this issue quickly and thoroughly,” Malaney said. “DEC recognized that.” Now the DEC wants the town to make improvements to its road salt storage facility to prevent possible run off. Malaney has asked the DEC for permission to use the remaining $16,000 fine money for the salt storage project.

“We’ve had to make a big investment.” Ticonderoga’s problem surfaced when about two gallons of gasoline was spilled on the floor of the Ticonderoga highway garage last spring. The spill was immediately cleaned up. An unnamed community member learned of the accident and reported it to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, Malaney said. That led to a DEC investigation. While investigating the spill, the DEC officer saw an abandoned drain in the garage floor. Further investigation revealed the drain led to a dry well outside the garage. The drain and dry well were installed when the highway garage was built in 1953, Malaney said, and had not been used since the 1970s. Concerned about possible past contamination, DEC ordered Ticonderoga to have soil samples taken from around the highway garage. Those sampled revealed pollution.

TICONDEROGA — The French students in Kari Millard’s classes at Ticonderoga Central School celebrated National French Week 2010 recently. Every year the American Association of Teachers of French sponsor the week, which has a specific theme. This year ’s theme is Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité, or in English Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood. The students in all three levels created projects involving the theme. The culminating activity was a Waiter ’s Race, an an-

nual race that takes place in towns and cities throughout France. French students chose partners, signed up in class and raced against other classmates. Each teammate carried a tray a desig-

nated length. The teammates had to hand off the tray midway through the race. The team that finished first without dropping anything from the tray won. Each class section had a

winning team and those teams met for a final race. The teams raced around the halls while the whole middle school watched and cheered for their favorite team.

Lake task force forms Wittmann from the University of California Davis Lake Tahoe Environmental Research Center and Dr. Sudeep Chandra, from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences from the University of Nevada Reno, noted that in Lake Tahoe Asian clams were first discovered in 2002, but management actions were not begun until 2008 when algal blooms began to appear in and around their dense beds. They counseled the Lake George effort to focus on eradication and to start its work quickly while the population remains contained. Chandra and Wittman shared their research, spoke with students and other scientists, visited the Asian clam infestation sites in Lake George, and met with the Lake George Asian Clam Rapid Response Task Force. They both agree that the early detection and limited in-

festation of Asian clam in Lake George makes eradication of the species a possibility. The long-term threat to Lake George is clear. “It’s hard to overstate the ecologic and economic harm

an Asian clam infestation in Lake George could cause. We must focus immediately on an eradication plan and find the resources necessary to put it in place,” said Bruce Young, chair, Lake George Park Commission.

TICONDEROGA — Scientists from Lake Tahoe have urged the Lake George community to act quickly in response to the recent discovery of Asian clams, while eradication is still a possibility. In Lake Tahoe, small populations of this invasive bivalve were discovered in 2002 and since then the population has exploded to nuisance levels. Lake Tahoe research and management groups are now spending over $500,000 in an effort to reduce the population with little to no hope of eradication. Asian clams in Lake Tahoe have been linked to algal blooms and changing water quality conditions. The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Darrin Fresh Water Institute (DFWI), whose staff discovered the Asian clam infestation in August, brought in Dr. Dan Marelli, who has long studied Asian clams and had collaborated with DFWI on research on native mollusks in Lake George. They quickly determined the extent of the problem and threat to Lake George and advised the Lake George community to act quickly and to focus its efforts on eradication. Scientists from Lake Tahoe were also contacted because they had some of the best research on both the Asian clam’s rapid population growth as well as management options. Dr. Marion

agency goes and plants a tree. I can hear a Snake Oil salesman now, “Step right up, Ladies & Gentlemen…” In conclusion, I’d like to warn people that climate change is just the tip of the iceberg. The liberals will continue to change the terminology until you buy it hook, line and sinker. But I have assurance from God’s Bible; which states in Genesis 8:22, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” That truth, folks, does not change.

John P. Sharkey Ticonderoga

To the Times of Ti: This letter is in response to David Thomas-Train’s cautionary tale concerning weather patterns. Let me get this straight, climate change is now the latest term being used for global warming. However, if you were to use biblical terminology you could say global cooling begot global warming which begot climate change. So what is it Mr. Thomas-Train? Why has this terminology evolved over the past 35 years? I’ll tell you why. Because it’s the biggest hoax in the world. The powers that be keep renaming it because their liberal agenda is more about control over our lives as well as making gobs of money. Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” turned out to be a very cynical lie. A very big lie. In 2009 advocates of climate change were exposed as frauds when e-mail exchanges blatantly called for weather data to be fudged to support scientific claims. These same frauds are also most likely to turn out to be environmental hypocrites by flying around on jets which use tons of fossil fuels. The Cap and Trade bill (also known as “Cap and Tax”), if passed, will be devastating to both homeowners and businesses alike. Republicans oppose this bill on quite reasonable grounds. For one, China and India are refusing to go along with this ludicrous idea and, secondly, the framework of selling carbon offsets is a scheme whereby a company pays a certain amount based on pollution content, then some liberal

Give to the United Way To the Times of Ti: It is a great honor to serve as your chairperson for the 2011 United Way Campaign. Since arriving in the North Country four years ago, it has become evident to me and my family that we are very fortunate to have so many caring and giving people in our community. With the current economic conditions, it is even more important that we challenge ourselves to broaden our reach and engage further participation in this year’s campaign. United Way of the Adirondack Region is “A Leader In Community Partnership Building And Increases The Organized Capacity Of People To Care For One Another.” Our network supports 36 member agencies that depend on our ability to provide financial resources. I have been actively involved with United Way for over 10 years, and in each community have witnessed the great results that can be obtained through the support of your local United Way Organization. I am a true believer in the structure and organization we call United Way. The money raised by United Way stays local, the decision makers are local and the commitment is all built on a local focus to serve North Country residents. Take advantage of payroll deductions if your employer offers this option and if they currently do not, encourage them to do so. If you are now retired and have been an active participant in the past, don’t stop; contact United Way directly to participate in this year’s campaign. And if you have the means to contribute at a leadership level but haven’t in the past, please give strong consideration to becoming a leadership-giving member during the 2011 campaign. Thank you for making a difference for your friends and neighbors through out the region. Kirk Stallsmith 2011 United Way Campaign chairperson Plattsburgh

Seeking cooperation To the Times of Ti: For many years the residents of Ticonderoga have been able to enjoy the beautiful Christmas lights in Bicentennial Park. These lights were made available through the efforts of then Town Councilman Andy Powvorznik, who was Chairman of the Parks & Recreation Committee, and his helpers, the Harold Towne family. After Andy’s death, the Towne family carried on this tradition in Andy’s memory. Last year, the lights were destroyed many, many times. As soon as Harold and Stephanie would repair them, they would be destroyed again. The Towne family were volunteers. They did this work on their own time, in cold and/or freezing weather, after their own work days or weekends. While there have been some donations from local people and officials this year toward the cost of the lights, and Lowes of Ticonderoga gave us a generous discount toward their purchase, the majority of the cost of the lights comes from the Parks and Rec budget, and this is “Taxpayers money.” Sadly, this year Harold and Stephanie decided enough was enough and chose not to carry on this tradition. I want it understood that no one could blame them for this decision and wonder how they could have carried it on for so long, with so little appreciation. With all this said, a number of Town of Ticonderoga employees and elected officials, along with the Chamber of Commerce, decided that the “Park Destroying Vandals” would not win this battle and volunteered to decorate Bicentennial Park again this year. We braved the wind and cold on Sunday, Nov. 22 and strung Christmas lights on all the light poles, as well as the small tree at the front of the park. Imagine our chagrin when, Wednesday, Nov. 23 , a few of us again met at the park to string lights around the vandalized gazebo, only to discover that the new lights on the tree had been cut off at the plug-in. I want the vandals to know that they will not stop progress in this town. We will not just fold up and decide we can not do anything good because they will just destroy it. And, before everyone says “There is nothing for the kids to do in this town,” let me tell you there are things for them to do. We have a Youth Center at the Armory, with events planned every month, which are not attended. We just were given new skateboard equipment, acquired from a grant. There is an ice skating park in the winter, provided by The Town, and this year there will be a second ice skating park for the smaller children, again provided by a grant. In the summer, we provide a Summer Program at the School that runs from 7 am-3 pm. The town hires lifeguards for the beautiful beach, which sports a new gorgeous beach house, again provided by grants and member items from Senator Betty Little. There is a ski program, Biddy Basketball, volley ball, and next summer there will be “Beach Volley Ball” at the recreation field-- again another grant. The town has the beautiful walking trails along the LaChute and the Recreation Field with exercise equipment along the middle walking trail provided by grants that Pride provided. The Festival Guild provides free Wednesday morning children’s programs in the summer. The Heritage Museum provides free children’s workshops Wednesday and Friday mornings throughout the summer. All it takes is a little ambition to find all these advantages offered to the Youth of Ticonderoga, and a little more positive attitudes to change the behaviors. We are asking for co-operation from the people of Ticonderoga to help us keep our Beautiful Historic Town from becoming the “Armpit” of Essex County. Thank you.

Red Kettle volunteers needed TICONDEROGA — The Salvation Army is seeking volunteer Bell Ringers for its Red Kettle Campaign in Ticonderoga. The Red Kettles have become a tradition throughout the United States, raising money to assist the less fortunate. Glen Buell is the site coordinator for the Ticonderoga Service Unit. He’s looking

for volunteers to stand by the kettles on Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Christmas Eve from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, in 1-2 hour time slots. Companies, organizations, schools and individuals can sign up as volunteers. “Up to 90 percent of the money raised is available to help people in need in our

local community,” Buell said. “Around 25 percent of that money helped people at Christmas last year. A number of families have received assistance to buy food, clothing, school supplies and to pay utility bills.” People interested in volunteering for the Red Kettle Campaign, or throughout the entire year, should call Buell at 597-3222.

Anyone who needs assistance can call the same number. “If you have a friendly face, you don’t mind being out in the cold for an hour or two, and you would like to do something to benefit your community this holiday season, then consider becoming a volunteer Bell Ringer for the Salvation Army,” Buell said.

A.T. Morette Loving Dad, Pop-Pop & Husband May 10, 1949 - December 2, 2009 It’s been 1 year since god came down and gave you the wings that you deserved. As I look up to the skies above, The stars stretch endlessly-But somehow all those rays of light Seem dimmer now to me. As I watch the morning sun appear The shadows still don’t fade-As if the brightest light of all Was somehow swept away. Though I see the branches swaying And watch their dancing leaves-The echoes carried on the wind Don’t sound the same to me. As I listen to the morning birds Sing softly from afar-It seems to be a mournful tune That echoes in my heart. Another day has come again As time moves surely on-But nothing now seems quite the same, To know that you are gone. The days and weeks and months ahead Will never be the same-Because a treasure beyond words Can never be replaced. The loss cannot be measured now The void cannot be filled-And though someday the grief may fade, Your mark will live on still. For even with my heavy heart I know that I’ve been blessed To have been one who’s life he touched With warmth so infinite.

Pumpkins are packed with good nutrition One of the nutrients in pumpkins, a carotenoid called beta carotene, gives these gourds their bright orange hue. Our bodies convert beta carotene into vitamin A, essential for good vision and proper growth and development. Pumpkin also offers vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. All this colorful good ness comes without fat or cholesterol, and just 38 calories in a half-cup.

Pets for mental health Studies show four-legged friends can help improve our cardiovascular health. Dog owners may get more exercise and other health benefits than the rest of us. Older dog walkers also had greater mobility inside their homes than others in the study. Walking with a dog leads to more conversations and helps people stay socially connected. People who have more social relationships tend to live longer and are less likely to show mental and physical declines as they age. So enjoy a pet, but be careful, as 86,000 people a year g to the emergency room because they tripped over the family pet and dogs are the primary cause of pet-related falling accidents.

Arthritis tips Arthritis can damage not only your joints, but also internal organs and skin. Talk to your doctor about what you can do. Here are some ideas: * Try to keep at a healthy weight that’s normal for your height. * Exercise. A health professional can show you how to move ore easily. Going for a walk every day will help, too. * If you had a severe joint injury, be careful about protecting it during future activities. * Don’t smoke. People who smoke are more likely to get rheumatoid arthritis, and their symptoms tend to be worse. * Take your medicines when and how you are supposed to. They can help reduce pain and stiffness. * Try taking a warm shower in the morning.

Protect yourself from Medicare errors, fraud and abuse Protecting our personal information is the best line of defense in the fight against health care fraud and abuse. Every day, consumers get ripped off by scam artists. Medicare and Medicaid lose billions of dollars each year. You can make a difference! Here are some ways beneficiaries can take an active role in protecting your health care benefits: * Treat your Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security numbers like a credit card number. Never give these numbers to a stranger. * Remember, Medicare doesn’t call or visit to sell you anything. * Don’t carry your Medicare or Medicaid card unless you will need it. Only take it to doctor ’s appointments, visits to your hospital or clinic, or trips to the pharmacy. * Record doctor visits, tests and procedures in your Personal Health Care Journal or calendar.

Athletes disappointed with state decision By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The decision to cancel the 2011 Empire State Games has disappointed local athletes. Citing New York's $9 billion budget gap, Empire State Games administrator Lisa Del Signore has written a letter to athletes informing them that the winter, summer, senior and games for the physically challenged have been canceled. The winter games were scheduled for late February in Lake Placid and the summer games were set for Rochester in late July. The Olympic-style games are run by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Del Signore’s letter said the agency has been told by the Paterson administration that there will be no state funding for the games. The summer games were canceled in 2009 because of budget cuts. Walt Thorne of Ticonderoga, a gold medalist in track and field at the 2010 Empire State Games, fears this may be the end of the event. “I'm disappointed,” he said. “I was looking forward to defending my 400 meter title in the 65-69 age group and possibly setting a record for the 70-74 age group, but I feel bad for the young athletes who won’t get a chance to compete. This may signal the death of the games; too many disappointments.” Jim Cunningham, who has medaled in canoeing and cycling in past Empire State Games, was surprised by the decision to cancel the 2010 games. “ I had thought that the future of the

games to be secure,” he said. “After they had been cut in 2009 adjustments had been made: fees were increased; corporate sponsorship had been obtained. It wasn’t enough; I looked into it and New York State still had to contribute $1.2 million. “It is unfortunate that they are gone,” Cunningham added. “I had been planning on going to the games in Rochester this summer and competing in the cycling time-trial event. Last time I finished in fourth place and I hoped to improve. Fortunately, there are alternatives. There is a state time-trial championship next summer and I plan on pointing my areo bars down that road. “Others may not have alternatives,” he said. “It is unfortunate that athletes, scholastic athletes in particular, will not be able to peruse their sport at that level.” Ted Santaniello, a Ticonderoga High School graduate who has competed in the scholastic and open division track and field, agrees. “It’s really a shame that the Empire State Games had to be cancelled,” he said. “It’s a great experience for all who go. I feel lucky that I could be a part of them. “With that being said, I also understand that certain cuts need to be made during our current economic condition,” Santaniello said. “I hope that the games will be able to continue in the future with minimal fees so that all athletes can have a fair chance at competing for their region.”

Local officials rally to save winter games By Chris Morris denpubs@denpubs.com LAKE PLACID — Officials from across the North Country were shocked when the state announced it was canceling the popular winter and summer Empire State Games due to New York’s ongoing fiscal crisis. But Nov. 18, community leaders from the Lake Placid region announced they would pool their resources to save the 2011 winter games, despite losing state funding. The summer games still face extinction. Representatives from the towns of North Elba and Wilmington, the village of Lake Placid, the Lake Placid Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the state Olympic Regional Development Authority made a joint decision Wednesday night to work together and keep the games alive. Reports that the state was pulling funding for the Empire State Games were still sinking in Thursday when officials convened a news conference to announce that the winter games were back on. With tourism officials estimating a loss of $1 million in economic impact as a result of the games’ cancellation, Lake Placid Village Mayor Craig Randall said continuing the event was critical to the region’s sustainability. He said the loss of state funding actually presents an opportunity going forward, similar to efforts by Melvil Dewey in 1928 to bring the Olympics to Lake Placid. “We have to look at this as one more of those activities in the history of the area where we could either allow it to go away, or we could step up to the table and perpetuate the vision of the Deweys and do what Lake Placid has done so well in the past with our friends and neighbors,” Randall said. “We need to take advantage of an opportunity here and pick up these games. We have all the resources we need.” North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said the state’s decision could be viewed as a disappointment – but that’s not the Lake Placid way. “Lake Placid is all about opportunities so we decided to pick up the ball and run with it,” Politi said. “The state has said it can’t do it. But Lake Placid is saying we can do it. We have the community spirit, the resourcefulness – and we have great partnerships.” And while the loss of the games would have hurt the community economically, Politi said it’s not just about money. “It’s more than financial,” he said. “We need to be thinking about young athletes. Athletes from across the state look forward to coming here and feeling the magic and the spirit of this Olympic place. It’s a wonderful experience.” Jim McKenna, president and CEO for the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism and the Lake Placid Convention and Visitors Bureau, called the decision to continue the games a no-brainer. “There’s a lot of expertise here,” he said. “We’re going to show the state that we can do this, and do it in a way that’s better than the past. This has the ability to lead to better things in the future.” Politi said that unlike the summer games — which have encountered significantly more financial hardship over the

years — the winter games cost relatively little. He said the infrastructure and venues are already in place, and the community is experienced in hosting events of this nature. McKenna said the next step is to secure the necessary funding. That, he said, could be accomplished through private sponsorship. “We have to show value and put together a package for potential sponsors,” he said. “Partnerships is what it’s about.” ORDA President and CEO Ted Blazer noted that the venues are already set and that staff is ready to pull off what he described as an exceptional Empire State Winter Games. “We’ve been working with Albany to follow the lead of control,” he said. “We had already set out budgets, and the athletes were going to be coming anyway. We’re going to

work with the community, that’s who will spearhead this. They’ll just be using our facilities.” State Sen. Elizabeth Little and Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward both said the state should have explored publicprivate sponsorships before deciding to cancel the games. In separate statements released Thursday, the two North Country lawmakers hailed the community effort to save the games. McKenna said he hasn’t heard whether the state is endorsing the plan. The Empire State Winter Games features an array of Olympic-style competitions, including bobsled, biathlon, Nordic combined, and alpine skiing. Past games have featured Olympic and World Cup champions like Billy Demong and Andrew Weibrecht.

Students mark storm drains PORT HENRY — Essex County students are out in full force armed only with a caulking gun, wire brush and storm-drain marker. For the next few weeks, residents of Port Henry, Westport and Elizabethtown will start to see little blue markers on storm drains around their towns. Students in the area have been learning about storm water pollution and how it affects their local water systems like Lake Champlain and the Boquet River. The Westport Central School environmental science class is installing stormdrain markers. During a storm event storm water runs down driveways, lawns, sidewalks and parking lots. It collects many pollutants along the way including dirt, chemicals and other debris. This water then flows to storm sewer systems and

goes directly into lakes, rivers and streams. Polluted runoff is one of the nation’s greatest threats to clean water. Students have been learning about what each of their households can do to help keep storm water clean. These markers are a reminder to the community that if we all take responsibility to practice good household habits we can keep our water ways healthy. The storm drain markers were bought through a grant from The Lake Champlain Basin Program that was received by the Lake George Regional Planning Board. Essex County Soil & Water Conservation Technician Tiffany Pinheiro and local teachers have teamed up to get the students out helping the community.

Proposed county tax hike stands at 9.5 percent By Jonathan Alexander denpubs@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The tentative 2011 Essex County budget now contains a 9.5 percent tax hike — down from 14 percent as of Nov. 15, and 30 percent the week prior. But whether the hike is low enough for the majority of the county board remains to be seen. County supervisors stripped about $560,000 in equipment costs from the budget Monday morning, just before Essex County Manager Dan Palmer had to file the tentative budget with the state. During a meeting of the board’s Finance Committee, St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency said the cash for four loaders at the Department of Public Works should be taken from the unexpended fund balance instead of the taxpayer-funded general fund. Several supervisors agreed with Morency and began calling for removal of the loaders from the budget. But Palmer has consistently combated increasingly voluminous calls for the use of more fund balance to buydown the tax levy. And he didn’t back down in this case, either. “Irrespective if you take it out of fund balance today or January, it still comes out of

fund balance,” he said. “It still reduces the fund balances and still creates that levy gap that you guys are looking at. I’m telling you, you’re looking at 40 percent next year. Instead of starting at 30 percent, you’re looking at 40 percent next year.” Palmer has already budgeted for the use of $6 million from the fund balance for the coming year. That number could increase another $1 million if it’s discovered money generated from interest on bonds for the jail have to be repaid to the federal government. Instead of applying the fund balance, Palmer convinced supervisors to bond for the cost. He noted the current interest rate is well below one percent and bonding would spread out the equipment cost over several years. Instead of bonding for only the four loaders, officials plan on getting a loan for all of the equipment the county has put off buying for the past several years. Officials said the county is currently in need of more than $1.5 million in plow trucks, loaders and office supplies. Supervisors are faced this year with higher costs and lower revenues — which makes balancing a county budget nearly impossible without drastic cuts. But faced with increasing public scrutiny, supervisors have remained focused on slashing the pending tax

hike. Several supervisors have said they wouldn’t support a budget with a tax hike that wasn’t in the single digits. Discussions continue about possible layoffs and the potential of the county getting out of the fair business all together. While talk of selling the fairgrounds began as a joke, board chairman Randy Douglas said it’s grown into a legitimate potential cost-cutting measure. “It is something that will be seriously considered. We are meeting again next Monday and it will probably be a lengthy session,” he said. Last week, supervisors learned an annual $65,000 investment in the fairgrounds and the fair was returning just $5,000. Newcomb Supervisor George Canon noted many of his peers remain uncomfortable with the tax hike and making further cuts might take a certain style of politics. “It’s time for some oldfashioned politics,” he said. “Sitting here wrangling all day isn’t going to get us anywhere.” Previous attempts at cutting the county fish hatchery and the Horace Nye nursing facility have failed.

Stay warm while giving to the Ronald McDonald House CROWN POINT — People have an opportunity to get a warm feeling while staying warm this winter. Avery Energy of Crown Point is donating 1 cent for every gallon of heating fuel it sells to residential customers this season to the Ronald McDonald House in Burlington, Vt. Owners Jackie and Will Deyo recently presented a $500 check to Pam Fenimore of the Ronald McDonald House after selling 50,000 gallons of fuel. The promotion will continue indefinitely, Jackie Deyo explained. “We noticed a lot of our community uses the Ronald McDonald House,” she said. “We want to be a local business that helps the local community.” It also fits the company’s motto. Named for the couple’s 8-month-old daughter, Avery, the firm claims “Avery is on a mission to help local kids.” Avery Energy is the former Deyo’s Heating Fuels of Crown Point. It serves the Crown Point-Ticonderoga-Moriah area. “We’re getting a really good response,” Deyo said of the promotion. “On each ticket we note how much of that sale will be given to the Ronald McDonald House and we give out a brochure.” The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Burlington is a “home away from home” for families with seriously-ill children who seek treatment at Vermont Children’s Hospital at the Fletcher Allen Health Care Facility. It provides housing and support for families receiving treatment. For information on the Ronald McDonald House promotion, call Avery Energy at 597-3444.

SATURDAY December 4, 2010

Town board adopts spending plan for 2011 with 5.9 percent tax increase By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com SCHROON LAKE — Taxes will increase 5.9 percent in Schroon next year. The town board has adopted a 2011 budget totalling $4,335,097. That’s $50,055 — 1 percent — more than the current spending plan of $4,205,042. The amount to be raised by taxes in the 2011 budget is $2,125,792. That’s $118,532 — 5.9 percent — more than the present tax levy of $2,007,260. The 2011 tax rate in Schroon will be $3.06 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s an increase from the 2010 tax rate of $2.80 per $1,000 of assessed value. “It gets more difficult every year,” Schroon Supervisor Cathy Moses said of the budget process. “Expenses go up, revenues go down. I don’t know where it all ends.” Moses said the town board worked hard to keep spending in check. Every department in the town was cut 5 percent. The board also cut $10,000 for sidewalk repairs, $4,000 in heating fuel at the highway garage because of a new wood heat system, $5,000 in legal fees, $4,000 used for the ski lift and $2,000 used for snowmobile trails. Those cuts totaled $28,000, but increases — most out of the control of the town board — totalled $92,001. Contributions to the state retirement fund are up $38,391 and employee insurance costs are up $12,895. The town changed health insurance providers to save money, but employee health care costs still total $405,789 — nearly 10 percent of the entire town budget. “Health insurance needs to get under control,” Moses said. “It’s not going to happen at the town or county level. We need. Insurance costs have gone up every year I’ve been here.” Moses has worked for the town 26 years and has been su-

pervisor the past 11 years. A weir at Paradox Lake needs immediate replacement at a cost of $30,000.

Full-time employees will get $250 raises next year and part-time, year-round workers will get $125 pay raises. Elected officials will get no pay increases. The 2011 budget contains no personnel changes and no major equipment purchases. “We’re in pretty good shape,” Moses said. “By making the changes we did I feel comfortable going into next year.” Moses said the town is doing well despite the national recession. “The town speaks for itself,” she said. “The town looks fantastic; we get compliments all the time. Our businesses had a good summer. Things are going well.” The supervisor said much of the credit goes to Schroon volunteers. “We’re lucky to have all our volunteers,” Moses said, noting the town beautification committee, chamber of commerce and others. “We’re very thankful for everything they do. We could never afford to pay for all these services.”

24 - TIMES OF TI • OPINION

Don’t let Ti become the ‘armpit’ To the Times of Ti: For many years the residents of Ticonderoga have been able to enjoy the beautiful Christmas lights in Bicentennial Park. These lights were made available through the efforts of then Town Councilman Andy Powvorznik, who was Chairman of the Parks & Recreation Committee, and his helpers, the Harold Towne family. After Andy’s death, the Towne family carried on this tradition in Andy’s memory. Last year, the lights were destroyed many, many times. As soon as Harold and Stephanie would repair them, they would be destroyed again. The Towne family were volunteers. They did this work on their own time, in cold and/or freezing weather, after their own work days or weekends. While there have been some donations from local people and officials this year toward the cost of the lights, and Lowes of Ticonderoga gave us a generous discount toward their purchase, the majority of the cost of the lights comes from the Parks and Rec budget, and this is “Taxpayers money.” Sadly, this year Harold and Stephanie decided enough was enough and chose not to carry on this tradition. I want it understood that no one could blame them for this decision and wonder how they could have carried it on for so long, with so little appreciation. With all this said, a number of Town of Ticonderoga employees and elected officials, along with the Chamber of Commerce, decided that the “Park Destroying Vandals” would not win this battle and volunteered to decorate Bicentennial Park again this year. We braved the wind and cold on Sunday, Nov. 22 and strung Christmas lights on all the light poles, as well as the small tree at the front of the park. Imagine our chagrin when, Wednesday, Nov. 23 , a few of us again met at the park to string lights around the vandalized gazebo, only to discover that the new lights on the tree had been cut off at the plug-in. I want the vandals to know that they will not stop progress in this town. We will not just fold up and decide we can not do anything good because they will just destroy it.

And, before everyone says “There is nothing for the kids to do in this town,” let me tell you there are things for them to do. We have a Youth Center at the Armory, with events planned every month, which are not attended. We just were given new skateboard equipment, acquired from a grant. There is an ice skating park in the winter, provided by The Town, and this year there will be a second ice skating park for the smaller children, again provided by a grant. In the summer, we provide a Summer Program at the School that runs from 7 am-3 pm. The town hires lifeguards for the beautiful beach, which sports a new gorgeous beach house, again provided by grants and member items from Senator Betty Little. There is a ski program, Biddy Basketball, volley ball, and next summer there will be “Beach Volley Ball” at the recreation field-- again another grant. The town has the beautiful walking trails along the LaChute and the Recreation Field with exercise equipment along the middle walking trail provided by grants that Pride provided. The Festival Guild provides free Wednesday morning children’s programs in the summer. The Heritage Museum provides free children’s workshops Wednesday and Friday mornings throughout the summer. All it takes is a little ambition to find all these advantages offered to the Youth of Ticonderoga, and a little more positive attitudes to change the behaviors. We are asking for co-operation from the people of Ticonderoga to help us keep our Beautiful Historic Town from becoming the “Armpit” of Essex County. Thank you.

A little good news goes a long way To the Times of Ti: When so much of our attention and news is centered on financial despair, arguably created by greed and mis-conduct, I believe that a little good news goes a long way during this season of Joy and Hope. I’d like to acknowledge the intent, effort, and the success of this years Holiday Meal in the community of Crown Point. Conceived with a desire to provide a place of fellowship for those who are alone or without the financial ability to enjoy a Tradition-

al Meal, virtually all agencies in the Crown Point area came together to offer, if only for a short time, a place and time of respite for those who might benefit. Accordingly, on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 26, this community joined hands to ensure that all who attended felt filled in spirit and body by the time they left. The meal, consisting of Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, Squash, rolls and homemade apple and pumpkin pies was served at Frenchman’s Restaurant in Crown Point from 4-7 p.m. There was no cost for this community meal! The meal was a collaborative between Frenchman’s and Maple Ridge Restaurant and the faith communities of Sacred Heart, Crown Point United Methodist, and the First Congregational Churches. We were grateful to Crown Point Telephone, Crown Point Discount, Crown Point Citgo, Where possible, the meal was served with locally grown and prepared items; Gunnison’s, for example, donated the apples for the pies. The management and staff of Maple Ridge restaurant made all the “cream Pies and many dozen rolls. First Congregational Church made rolls and staffed the “take-out” meals. The United Methodist Church made all the stuffing. CPTELCO pealed more than sixty pounds of locally grown potatoes, donated by the women of the Crown Point Post Office. The folks at both Crown Point Citgo and Haps Market supplied Juice and milk for the children. The six turkeys were donated by Sacred Heart Church and cooked in the two restaurants’ ovens. Crown Point Discount Store and Bobbi Joe Shaffer provided condiments. The management and staff of Frenchman’s restaurant, joined by volunteers from local churches, hosted this community event. No one was paid!! We were thrilled to receive substantial donations from both the Rescue Lodge of Masons as well as Champlain National Bank. These funds helped us to purchase many of the incidentals. Our gratitude goes to many additional members of the Crown Point area who joined with us to make this a true community time of fellowship. This was a “total” community effort that brought together people and resources to ensure true fellowship and a “Traditional” hot meal for those who might not have one, here in Crown Point. We served approximately 80 in house meals and delivered more than 70 meals to those who were unable to join us. It is my prayer that as the months go by, this meal will serve as a point of pride and accomplishment for not only our community but for others who will look for ways to share in the ability to build a stronger, caring community. “Together,” what a wonderful way to share. Mr. Editor, I am proud to be part of this true expression of community!! Thank You to ALL!

Sentinels to rely in quickness, speed By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga lacks size entering the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys basketball season, but the Sentinels do have experience. Ti returns eight players from a year ago with it posted a 6-11 CVAC record and 7-13 overall mark. Joe Defayette, Ti’s first-year coach, is preaching the basics to his club. “We have eight guys returning from last year, which we will look to for some leadership,” the coach said. “We don’t have a lot of height so we’ll have to be fundamentally sound and use our quickness against our opponents.” Nick Mars, the team’s leading scorer last season, returns to play forward. He’s joined up front by veterans Dan Morrison and Ryan Wendell along with rookie Doug Wilson. Nate Lenhart, Matt Nolan, Tanner Purkey and Jesse Perkins return to the Sentinel back court. New at

guard are EJ Kearns, Sean Smith, Will Lawrie and Joe Gonyeau. Jesse LaRose returns to the pivot for Ticonderoga. Defayette believes his Sentinels have the potential to make some noise in CVAC Division II and section this winter. “We expect to be competition in our division and hope to represent Section VII Class C in sectionals,” he said.

Ticonderoga eyes another section title By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

Kaylene Ross is back to help Ticonderoga fight for another section championship. Photo by Nancy Frasier

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga girls basketball team finished the 2009-10 season on a high note, winning its second straight Section VII Class C championship. The Sentinels could do it again, but fans will need a program to tell who is on the court. Ti was hit hard by graduation, losing all five starters from that championship squad. That won’t deter Coach Shelly Young. “Each year we set out to win sectionals,” she said. “I feel this team has as good a chance as any to do that. They are working hard and coming together as a team.” The cupboard isn’t completely bare for the Sentinels. Seven players return from last season’s 6-10 Champlain Valley Athletic Conference and 8-13 overall club. “I’m looking to several players to step and take over this season,” Young said. “Leading the team will be Sarah teRiele and Kate Mercer in the post position with Kaylene Ross, Calsie Granger and Autumn Olcott at guard.

Crown Point lacking depth Panthers need experience CROWN POINT — Crown Point’s girls basketball team is thin this season, featuring just eight players. Coach Kevin Peters’ roster includes Julianne Glebus, Marissa Titus, Alexis Holman, Lindsay Greenough, Courtney Meachem, Michaela Comes, Amanda Wolf and Ellen Kiely. Peters reported the team is working hard nand showing improvement during the preseason. He’s looking forward to a competitive season.

By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — Crown Point enjoyed the fruits of experience a year ago, now the Panthers must pay the price. Crown Point graduated all five starters from last season’s Section VII Class D championship boys basketball team. The 2010-11 Panthers are young and green. “After losing the entire starting five from the 09-10 sectional champion team, this year is a rebuilding year for us,” Coach John Swinton said. “Losing the top three statistical leaders in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals, there will be opportunities for everyone to step up and fill in roles where needed. “We will be looking for leadership at both ends of the floor, as well as hard work in practice,” he added. “While we want to do as well as possible, we’ve already set personal and team season goals that are both realistic and attainable.

Zack Desimone returns to the Moriah back court this season. The Vikings look to improve on last winter’s 13-5 record.

PORT HENRY — The Moriah boys basketball team hasn’t been able to practice this pre-season like other teams, but Viking fans aren’t complaining. Many of the players have been busy with Moriah’s extended football season, which ended two weeks after other teams had started basketball practice.

Zack Desimone returns at guard, where he’s joined by rookies Isaac Aponte, Keith Ida, Thomas Slattery and Sergio Comacho. “We should be competitive this year,” Cross said. “Gilbo and Speshock saw plenty of action last year and Tom Slattery, DeSimone and Cross also played last year. Isaac Aponte is a new player and should see plenty of action along with Breeyear, Curran and Calabrese.” The Vikings will need some players to step up. Last season’s leading scorer, Nathan Gilbo, leading rebounder, Hayden Whalen, and top playmaker, Tom Tesar, have all graduated.

PORT HENRY — Moriah’s girls basketball team has six players returning this season, but the Vikings remain a young club. Moriah has just one senior, guard Janice Poirier. “Leadership is a concern with a young team,” Coach Steve Pelkey said. “Who will step up?

Wildcats return MVP; eye successful season By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com SCHROON LAKE — There is reason for optimism in the Schroon Lake girls basketball camp this season. The Wildcats, who posted a 10-6 mark a year ago, return six players, including four starters — one of whom was the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference Division III Most Valuable Player. Jocelyn Bowen, a guard, is the returning MVP. She led Schroon Lake in scoring with 16.7 points game in 2009-10. She also topped the club in assists with 5 a contest. Also returning to the starting line up are Ashley Subra, Rebecca Armstrong and Kate Rose. Armstrong led the ‘Cats in rebounding last season, hauling down 8 caroms a game. Liz Bessey and Gaberielle Harvey also return, giving Schroon a veteran roster. Armstrong, Subra and Harvey will play forward positions. Bowen, Rose and Bessey are at guard along with rookies Clare Whitney and Brianna DeZalia. Newcomer Melanie Phillip is at center. “This year ’s team is more athletic than in past years and will focus on defensive pressure to force turnovers and create easy scoring opportunities,” Coach Lee Silvernail

said. “The girls have been working hard both on and off the court to get ready for the season,” he added. “They have taken their conditioning to a much higher level this year and are highly motivated and committed to our defensive focus.” Also motivating the ‘Cats is a brand new gym, expected to open this month after several years of construction. “The girls are excited to get to play in our new gymnasium,” Silvernail said. “Combine that with our strong following of Wildcat fans and it should make for an exciting atmosphere.”

SCHROON LAKE — The Wildcats are about to move into a new den. Schroon Lake Central School’s boys basketball team will christen a new gymnasium this season, moving from a small, 75year-old court to a new, state-of-the-art facility. The new gym, several years in the making, is expected to open this month. Looking to utilize the new home-court advantage will be a team with six returning players from a year ago when the Wildcats posted an 11-9 record. Jesse Shaughnessy and Ian Williams return to the back court. They’re joined by rookies Matt Filler, Noah Gath and Kyle Devita. Shaughnessy led the ‘Cats in scoring last season with 13.6 markers a tilt. He also topped the club in assists and steals. Anthony Vanderwalker, Wesley Beers and lance Paradis return to the forward line. They’re joined by newcomers Kyle Taylor, Matt Savarie and Jared Fowler. Vanderwalker led the Wildcats in rebounding last season with 7 boards a game. He also averaged 7.2 points a contest. Beers followed closely, averaging 6.8 points and 6 rebounds a game. Jordan Taylor returns at center. Uriah Harvey will also line up in the post. “We have a number of young, athletic talents joining the team this season,” Coach Dana Shaughnessy said. “We are looking forward to a competitive season.”
