Moriah borrows for storm cleanup



FEMA help expected

Chamber members plan to mix it up at Hancock House.

By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — The town of Moriah is borrowing $500,000 to help cover expenses from major storms that hit the community this year. The loan will not affect local taxpayers, according to Supervisor Tom Scozzafava. “This will have no impact on taxes,” Scozzafava said. “The April floods and Hurricane Irene (in August) were real blows to the town. We depleted our fund balance and our operating budget to make necessary repairs. Now we need to replace that money.” Moriah officials are confident the storm damage will ultimately be paid for by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but that money has not yet arrived and a new budget year starts in a few weeks. The total bill for repairing damage from the two storms is $416,207 to date, Scozzafava said. There are still a few outstanding bills. “To the credit of the highway department and Mr.

Ti man wants to attract breweries



P7 P2-10


By Fred Herbst


















TICONDEROGA — Ken Tucker believes beer could be an economic force in the Adirondacks. The Ticonderoga man has embarked on a project to attract small

breweries throughout the region. He believes the effort will result in $3 billion in revenue a year and 5,000 jobs in 15 years. “It’s the right time, it’s the right place,” Tucker said of his plan. “It’s just a matter of making it happen and I’m the guy for it.” The key in Tucker ’s vision is “blue gold” — the 10 trillion gallons of

fresh water that flows from the Adirondacks each year. Water is the key ingredient in beer, he noted, making this area a prime location for breweries. Tucker lived 12 years in Oregon, where small breweries thrive. Craft brewing is responsible for $3 billion in revenue each year and 5,000 jobs in Oregon, he said. Tucker believes

the industry can do the same thing in the Adirondack Park. To make his project a reality, Tucker has applied to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to create a “EB-5 regional center” in the Adirondacks. Those centers are eligible to accept foreign investment in exchange for immigration

ed this past summer were determined to have rabies. Those animals were from the towns of Keeseville, Crown Point, Westport and Ticonderoga. Owners of farm animals should make sure their animals are up to date with annual rabies vaccinations. If an unvaccinated farm animal comes in contact with a rabid or suspected rabid animal it must be strictly quarantined for six months or destroyed. Vaccinated animals that come in contact with wild animals must be given a booster rabies vaccination within five days of the contact. Essex County Public Health Department reminds all residents to avoid contact with stray or wild animals and cats and dogs. If a contact happens, notify Essex County Public Health Department at 873-3500. Essex County Public Health Department will submit animals and bats for rabies testing if they have had contact with humans or pets or have displayed unusual behavior. Call the Essex County Public Health Department at 873-3500 to report a contact or for more information.

Marine Academy a boost O to students, economy


he new Marine Academy scheduled to open at Ticonderoga High School next fall will be a welcome addition to the region’s education system and economy. Operated by Champlain Valley Educational Services and available to students from Glens Halls to Plattsburgh, the two-year program will prepare students for careers in the marine industry — a business that remains strong locally despite the national recession. The new venture has the backing of the Eastern New York Marine Trades Association, a group of marine professionals desperate for trained help. “There just aren’t enough marine technicians to fill all the jobs we have available,” explained Roger Phinney, executive director of the Eastern New York Marine Trades Association. “We have jobs. We want to hire people. We just can’t find them.” Marina owners and managers from Lake George, Bolton, Whitehall, Loon Lake, Diamond Point, Brant Lake, Schroon Lake, Hague and Ticonderoga attended an open house at the Marine Academy recently. They came away impressed. Rich Stolen, owner of Schroon Lake Marina and Loon Lake Marina, said every graduate of the Marine Academy will find a job immediately out of high school. “We’ll be fighting for them,” he said. Bob Palandrani, owner of Snug Harbor Marina in Ticonderoga and a member of the Ti school board, has been instrumental in the development of the Marine Academy. He stressed the program is about much more than mechanics. He said students will learn about every facet of the busi-

ness — fiber glass, painting, welding, woodworking, computers, sales and marketing. Many of those jobs, he pointed out, are year-round, full-time opportunities. That’s more than can be said for job prospects of many college graduates these days. The Marine Academy will also be a partnership between education and business, providing students with practical experience while giving marinas and others a trained workforce. Scott Andersen, manager of FR Smith and Sons Marina in Bolton, said he has been in contact with major marine manufacturers such as Mercury, Yamaha, Evinrude and Volvo. He believes those companies will support the the Ticonderoga Marine Academy by providing specialized tools, training materials and computer access. He believes academy graduates will be able to leave school with manufacturers’ certification — a huge asset in the marina industry. Andersen also believes the Marine Academy can also expand in the future to train adult technicians. The nearest Mercury training center is in New Hampshire, he noted, and the nearest Yamaha training center is in Georgia. The Marine Academy in Ticonderoga looks like a win-win situation for students and an important regional industry.

Cartoon in poor taste To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

I have to admit that I thought your “cartoon” on Republican Science was in poor taste. I wasn’t surprised at it since I feel your newspaper – like most – favors the Democrats on the State & Nation scene. However, I do not believe your paper favors either Party on local issues. I will be truthful; I would have thought it was in poor taste even if it said “Democrat Science”. Let me explain why. As a County Party Chairman I feel that my most important job is to get good quality people to run for Local and County positions. Let us look at the Supervisor ’s position in almost any Town in the County. The pay is very low for the responsibilities it has and the amount of time it requires. Not only do you have the Town problems, but also you have to deal with the County problems. Both have been complicated by the State’s 2% property cap. You remember how that was sold by Albany: “We know we have to eliminate any new unfunded mandates and limit those unfunded mandates already in place.” How has that been working for the North Country? So we have a poorly paid position with unrealistic constraints, impossible problems, the expectations that no matter what you do on any issue you will be making enemies. You have to cut programs you can, not those you might prefer. Now as a bonus, along with any other Politician, I open your paper and get a cheap shot attempt at humor. I know you are a registered Republican, we are looking for a candidate for Supervisor in your town for 2013. Are you interested Dan?

The Penfield Homestead Museum would like to thank all the people in Crown Point and surrounding communities that came together to help us during and after tropical storm Irene. Specifically thanks to: Bob Patnode for driving to Lewis during the storm to pick up sand bags. Fran and Betty Pertak for donating the sand and providing a place to fill the sand bags. All those who helped fill sand bags, transport them to Ironville, and place them around the pond. Fred French for trucking two loads of clay for use at the dam. Richard Fortier for bringing over his backhoe to help with placing the clay. Dominic Fontana, DEC, and Mark Buckley, professional dam engineer, for giving us timely direction on what steps should be taken to lower the pond level and to procure necessary permits. Riznick construction for providing equipment and Carl Ross for operating the excavator for several days. Don Jaquish, Essex County Emergency Services, for supplying a flatbed for transporting sand bags and for letting us make use of NY-ALERT to keep people informed. Your help and support are greatly appreciated. Dave Hall Penfield Board of Directors

Ron Jackson, Essex

Ditto on cartoon To the Times of Ti: What a disappointing editorial cartoon in your Dec. 3 editions. The article above was on the true meaning of the season. That article brought forth a warmth while your papers all took issue with Republican Science? An insult to one and all from one particular party as it would call them "..a bunch of dense and unstable particles..." Win Belanger Willsboro Republican Committee

Takes exception to editorial To the Times of Ti: As a Tupper Lake resident and businesswoman I take great exception to your recent editorial, “Help a community under siege.” Not one of those listed as authors, on that opinion piece, live in Tupper Lake so what in the world do they know? Talk about outsiders trying to influence Tupper Lake’s future. I and many other Tupper Lake residents are in agreement that although the railroad idea was a good one it has not done what it has promised it would do, and it has had over 10 years of trying. It is time to try something else. There are no new businesses or additional employment created in the last 10 years that are attributed to the train. The DOT travel corridor is an asset that is totally underutilized and the communities along it should get together and capitalize on its use. I believe that by converting the rail bed into a trail we will get the most “Bang for the Buck” and we will be able to do it sooner than trying to build a trail all along the rail through wetlands, over streams and rivers, etc. I travel a great deal to other resort areas and I have seen, first hand, what a recreational trail can do to an area. We already know what Snowmobiling has done for Old Forge so let’s bring it here to Tupper Lake and make the season last longer. Bicycling is becoming the leading requested facility for vacationers. They are looking for dedicated paths away from traffic. Notice all the bikes attached to campers and cars going through our community in the summer. Let’s give them a world class place to ride. Before you jump on the train bandwagon you better ask yourself which you would rather do, take a train ride once or be able to ride you snowmobile or bicycle every weekend? A recreational trail through the Park would bring thousands of people to these communities. Don’t use false accusations about our motives or disparage our efforts to do something great for my community of Tupper Lake. I live here. I raised a family here. I have several successful businesses here. Don’t tell me I’m doing this to support Lake Placid. How would you know? You never asked me. No, you are only listening to one side of the story and only to a few voices. I, on the other hand, have received many positive comments from my fellow Tupper Lake residents in support of my efforts and so I plan on continuing my efforts to educate the community about this trail. This Rail Trail effort has nothing to do with the ACR project. All it can do is be of a benefit to them. Because of my businesses I am well aware of what owners and buyers of million dollar properties are interested in and it is not riding a train. Extending the train service is like the old definition of crazy: doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. Hope Frenette Tupper Lake

Take a freeze To the Valley News: Everyone is frustrated with rising taxes to finance public employee pay increases without recognizing the hardship paying for it imposes on the larger community, likely already burdened by the rising costs of living. This scenareo is playing out across the country, and it is especially poignent when the private sector is freezing pay increases, cutting back hours, or just laying folks off because the well is running dry. Currently, many Essex County employees face the possibility of pay cuts to finance pay increases for their unionized coworkers, or everyone will be confronted by lay-offs. Union leadership shouldn't benefit its member-workers at the expense of the non-union co-workers. These co-workers are friends, neighbors, and members of the same larger community and cutting their pay to give out an increase seems unfair during these economic hardtimes. I am a long-time union member retired from Essex County and a supporter of collective bargaining. I have also been laid off by Essex County many years ago, so I attest it is not a vague threat, it can really happen. Union leadership should negotiate, bargain, and open up the contract to a short-term pay freeze for its members in order to avoid pay cuts and layoffs for other co-workers. Spread the burden across many shoulders so it is not too heavy for any one brother or sister to bear, union or otherwise. I don't believe anyone is looking to have a fight about the role of public unions. This isn't about fighting, it's about the right thing to do for all parties and even more simply put, it's the reality of our times. Muriel Cahill Willsboro

Alexander from page 6 again? But do these unattainable standards rest with the public or is it the media that takes an issue and blows it up beyond proportion. Americans gravitate to perceived winners and we are quick to jump onto and then back off the bandwagons based on the attention given by the media outlets. Like a scab, that we just won’t let heal, we continue to pick at it until it become far worse than when it started out. Our collective logic over the years has been if you can’t be trusted in your private life how can we trust you in the public arena. Yet President Clinton, despite his private flaws, proved he could compartmentalize the issues and served very effectively as the leader of the country. In the end we must decide what is the more important; a flawed candidate who can lead the country back to prosperity or selecting a candidate who appears near perfect and says the right things but is unable to address the wide array of issues affecting the nation. Is the election about the person, the job performance or the party? As is the case every four years, if nothing else, it’s always entertaining, but in 2012 we need to look beyond the feel good beauty contest and hire a leader who can solve the many issues affecting our country.

Ti crowns Distinguished Young Woman Megan Moser wins TICONDEROGA — Megan Moser is the winner of the 49th annual Ticonderoga Junior Miss Scholarship Program, now known as Distinguished Young Women. The theme of the program was “I love New York” which was held on Saturday, Nov. 5. Eight girls participated in the program. Moser was chosen 2012 DYW. She also received the “Be Your Be Self,” talent, fitness and self expression

awards. Megan Schryer was first runner up and received the scholastic award. Abby Gurney received the Spirit Award chosen by the contestants. Also competing were Emilee Namer, Tabitha Taylor, Becka Friedman, Courtney Shaner and Shannon Kelly. All contestants received participation certificates. Moser will represent Ticonderoga in the state program in Buffalo in March 2012. There were also eight second graders that participated in the little sister program which is part of

national youth program “Be Your Best Self.” Those eight girls were Katie Ashe, Chloe Baker, Jadyn Defayette, Jade Frasier, Raegan Granger, Kaelee Kristensen, Delaney Reeves and Kennice Rich. The local committee thanked the local businesses, private donors and community for the ongoing support of the scholarship program. The DYW program gave away $3,000 in college scholarships.

Ticonderoga from page 1 consideration. The program allows foreign investors to get green cards if they meet an investment threshold. “There’s a lot of money outside the U.S. looking for investment opportunities,” Tucker said. “Why not bring that money to the Adirondacks?” Tucker hopes to have approval of the “regional center” application in February. The closest “regional center” to the area is Jay Peak, Vt., he said, where 400 foreign investors have pumped $200 million into the local ski industry. Tucker is confident foreign investors will want to take advantage of the Adirondack water to operate nano-breweries, brew-pubs, restaurant-breweries, micro-breweries and regional breweries. Vermont has the largest number of breweries, per capita, in the United States, Tucker noted. “The Adirondack Park is about the size of Vermont; we have about the same population,” he said. “Why can’t the Adirondacks of New York have the same footprint? Vermont exports a lot of beer and imports a lot of money. We can do that, too.” While he awaits federal approval of the “regional center,” Tucker is contacting potential investors and investigating possible locations for breweries. To date he has identified six spots he feels are ideal for the project — in Crown Point, Keeseville, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid and Plattsburgh. The Crown Point location is the former Porter ’s Mill store — the old Agway — on Route 9N. “It sits right on Putts Creek with plenty of pure, clean water and has a wonderful view,” Tucker said of the Crown Point spot. “I think it’s a great location.” Bethany Kosmider, Crown Point supervisor, agrees. “Ken Tucker met with me a few weeks ago and it is quite apparent there is an interest-

ed business, a micro-brewery,” said Kosmider, who is leaving office Dec. 31. “I’m sorry this didn’t happen while I was in office, but at least it’s gotten started.” Once the breweries are up and running, Tucker hopes to create a distribution network through the Adirondack Brewers Coalition. The project will impact the local economy in a num- The former Porter’s Mill store — the old Agway — in Crown Point has been identified as a possible location for brewery by Ken Tucker, a Ticonderoga resident ber of ways, Tucker with plans to attract small breweries throughout the region. said.

Local farmers will be able to grow hops, a necessary ingredient in beer making. “You’ve got to see the big picture,” he said. “We’ll start with small breweries and grow from there. Soon Adirondack brews will have a cachet and value equal to ‘made in Vermont.’ We’re close and I couldn’t be more excited.”

Alliance board of directors appointed Office opens in Community Building TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga town board has appointed members to the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance board of directors. Appointed were Alex Levitch and Jim Major for one-year terms, Sanford Morhouse and John Rayno for two-year terms and Susan Rathbun for a three-year term. According to the organization’s bylaws, Debra Malaney in her capacity as town supervisor, will serve ex officio on the alliance board and J. Justin Woods, Alliance president and CEO, will also serve ex officio, as the non-voting chairman of the board. The Ti town board also has approved minor changes to a 2010 resolution enabling the creation of a local development corporation to focus on the economic development and revitalization and OKed the alliance using office space in the Community Building. “By operating as a local development corporation, we will have both an institutional and statutory commitment to openness, transparency and accountability,” Woods said at the November Town board meeting. “For example, in accordance with the open meetings law, all alliance meetings will be open to the public, minutes will be taken and available on the website, and to comply with the Public Authorities Accountability Act, the board must participate in training and conflict of interest disclosures, prepare and publish an open budget, and comply with operating and reporting requirements governed

by the New York Authorities Budget Office.” “The alliance will support both the retention and expansion of existing businesses and aggressively facilitate the establishment and implementation of community and economic revitalization programs that support the creation of new, private sector businesses in the Ticonderoga area,” Major said after the meeting. “We look forward to working with the town and our public, private and institutional partners to create valueadded jobs and facilitate taxable investments in the town.” “Working with private businesses, corporate citizens and our local partners at PRIDE, TMSP (Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership), chamber, the fort, the alliance will provide strategic leadership, community strategy and daily implementation of our economic development work plan to stimulate and generate new economic activity throughout the town,” Rathbun added. In addition to the board of directors, the alliance will continue to maintain a steering board composed of area residents, businesses, corporations and representatives of civic, community and other organizations having an interest in the economic development and revitalization, business, arts and culture, and/or civic life in the Ticonderoga area. For more information or to get involved with the alliance, contact Woods at or 5860109. “The Alliance is a clearinghouse for shared ideas, intelli-

gence, resources and, where helpful, conflict resolution between major economic development players in the region,” Woods said. “With a sweeping mandate to facilitate a complete economic makeover and playbook to restore prosperity to our famous, historic American town and its immediate environs, the Alliance is creating an investment framework to facilitate private-public partnership solutions and serve as a possible template for the revitalization of other North Country communities.”

TICONDEROGA — A Ticonderoga graduate is coming home to perform a benefit for Moriah students. Megan Walls, a graduate music student at Illinois State University, has organized a concert by the Snow Bones Trombone Ensemble. The show will be Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church in Ticonderoga and will benefit the Moriah Central School women’s chorus, which is raising money for a trip and performance at Disney World this spring. “The concert is free, but all donations will be going to help cover expenses for the trip,” Walls said. Walls, who earned a bachelor ’s degree in music at the College of Saint Rose and is now pursuing a master ’s at Illinois State, contacted friends, organized the group and scheduled the performance. “This year the ensemble consist of 12 trombones and a percussionist,” Walls said. “Five from the College of Saint Rose, two from the Crane School of Music (SUNY-Potsdam), two from the Eastman School of Music (University of Rochester), three from Illinois State University and one from the University of Southern Florida, who are majoring in music education, trombone performance, jazz trombone performance and music industry at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. It's neat to have such a wide age span and that half the ensemble has never met each other before. It’ll be a good experience for the group to get to know each other and an opportunity to learn what is going on at other colleges.” The Moriah Central School women’s choir has been selected to perform at Disney in Orlando, Fla., as part of the Disney Performing Arts Program. The Moriah women’s choir features 25 students in grades 7 to 12 under the direction of April Reeder. As part of the Disney Performing Arts Program, the Moriah singers will travel to Disney World and perform on stage for visitors to the theme park. The performance at Disney will require a lot of rehearsals — and money. The Moriah choir must raise about $28,000 to cover the costs of the trip. Reeder and Walls are friends. “April was so excited the day she found out that the girls had made it through the audition, I wasn’t allowed to move before she

had told me the whole story,” Walls said. “She was glowing and extremely proud of what her kids had accomplished.” Walls promised Reeder she would help in any way possible. “We were at a conference a couple weeks before school started and we were talking about the fundraisers and what the kids were doing currently to raise money,” Walls recalled. “I told her then that if there was a Snow Bones concert that winter, I wasn’t even sure if we had a group at that point, that we would do it as a benefit concert for the chorus.” Walls contacted trombone-playing friends, asking if they would be willing to do a benefit concert. “I was surprised at how many people were interested and I knew then that we had a group,” Walls said. “I also decided, since this might be the last tour I organize, that I would go all out and invite trombonists from other schools. I sent over 10 emails to universities and community colleges all over the north east and I received more emails with interested students. Unfortunately, school isn’t ending until Dec. 23 at a few of the schools, so we lost a couple there. But for having a tour so close to Christmas, I think we had a good turn out.” As long as the music students are together, Walls explained, they’ll do more than the Ti performance. “The tour will be lasting for six days,” she said. “Two days of rehearsal at the College of Saint Rose and the other four days we will be playing and giving master classes at over 10 schools in the Albany and Upstate New York areas, as well as giving two night concerts. One in Ticonderoga on the 21st and the other in Albany at Saint Peter ’s Church, 7 p.m. on Dec. 20. It'll be six exhausting, but highly-rewarding days and the group is really looking forward to the experience.” The ensemble will visit Ticonderoga High School, St. Mary’s School in Ticonderoga, Willsboro Central School and Westport Central School as part of its tour. The Ticonderoga concert will feature the Tommy Pederson Christmas Quintets, the Jacob’s Octet, the Hartley Canzona, the Adventures of the Escapist and more. The concert in Ticonderoga will also include a special grand finale which will feature students from local schools as well as members of the community along with the trombone ensemble. “It’ll be an exciting night and we hope that you will come out and join us,” Walls said.

Court decides supervisor race NORTH HUDSON — The lawsuit that sought to reverse results of the North Hudson supervisor race has been dismissed in State Supreme Court. The ruling makes Republican Ronald Moore the winner, and he will now take office Jan. 1, 2012. Losing Democratic candidate Hugh Myrtle filed the lawsuit after he lost, 74-72, when the five absentee ballots in the race were opened. All five ballots were cast for his opponent, Republican Ronald Moore, reversing the machine count of 72-69 that had been in Myrtle's favor on Election Night. “Review of all five of the absentee ballots received in ev-

idence discloses no defects in any of them,” Meyer wrote in his decision. “Each one complies with the requirements of the (state) Election Law and is therefore valid.”

To The People of North Hudson

Thank You

Thank You I would like to express my deep appreciation to all who supported me during the November election. Special thanks are given to those who willingly came forward and gave of their time on the weekends and during two long days of courtroom proceedings. Last but certainly not least, I thank my attorneys, who on very short notice worked ceaselessly on my behalf. Finally, it is my sincere hope that the decision of the court should serve to absolve the Essex County Board of Elections from any wrongdoing and restore to that office and each employee therein the integrity and respect brought into question by false allegations. Above all, my greatest desire is that we can now move forward from a contentious election and work together to serve the interest of our town and her people to the best of our ability. Again, thanks to all. RonMoore

To all my family, friends & the community. To the Schroon Lake EMS & to my amazing nurse. Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts, well wishes and all that you have done for me & my family Thank you again Tracey Whitty

Hunters, hikers collide on Cheney Mountain Moriah may close new trail during hunting season By Fred Herbst



$ 00

MORIAH — There are safety concerns with the new Cheney Mountain Trail in Moriah. The new recreation trail opened last month. It starts by the town’s former landfill on Pelfershire Road and follows an old logging road to the summit of Cheney Mountain, affording views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. “It’s been utilized by a lot of people from all over the area, which is a good thing,” Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “The problem is hunting.” Moriah allows hunting on town property. Adjacent land owners also allow hunting on their property. “People (hikers) are leaving the trail and town property,” Scozzafava said. “The adjacent property owners

have expressed concerns. Can you imagine sitting in a tree stand all day waiting for a deer and all the sudden a group of hikers walk past?” The supervisor said he will recommend to the town board that the Cheney Mountain Trail be closed during deer hunting season, from mid-October to the first week of December. “For the safety of the people utilizing the trail I think it should be closed during hunting season,” Scozzafava said. October is a favorite time for many hikers who enjoy the changing fall colors. “I realize that,” Scozzafava said, “but this is a safety issue. I knew when they first started talking about this (trail) there could be problems.” The supervisor said signs

PORT HENRY — Stalled by the construction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge, a Port Henry marina project is gearing up to move forward. The Adirondack Park Agency approved a series of variances last January, clearing the way for the renovation and expansion of Velez Marina on Lake Champlain. The project, which local officials consider vital to future economic development, was put on hold, however, while the arch for the new bridge was constructed at the site. With the new bridge complete, the marina project is now scheduled to begin in the spring. “I’ll be excited to see that project begin and be completed,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “It’s a critical piece of real estate for both the village of Port Henry and the town of Moriah. “We’re one of the few communities to have two marinas on Lake Champlain,” he added. “That can only be a good thing to attract people to our town.” Lakefront development is the key to Moriah’s economic future, the supervisor said. “We all know the lakefront is the key to our future,” Scozzafava said. “We’re excited about this project. That property is a key to the economic future of the community.” Velez Marine occupies 1,255 feet of Lake Champlain shoreline in Port Henry, just north of the state Department of Environmental Conservation boat launch. The site is currently in decline, but owner Rick Dolliver has plans to build 30,000 square feet of breakwater to create 94 new boat slips. The project will add a new two-lane boat launch ramp, boat-hauling and maintenance facilities and a pump-out station. “This is something the community has been hoping would happen for as long as I can remember,” Scozzafava said. “It’s great news.” Moriah and Port Henry have two municipal campgrounds on the lake, a state boat launch, a pier and public marinas. “There aren’t many communities that can boast as many public amenities as Port Henry can,” Scozzafava said. The supervisor noted the marina project will be completed entirely with private money. “The beauty is that this is all private money going into this,” he said. “This is an investment from the private sector, which is very refreshing to see for a change.” The marina was a staging area this past year for Flatiron Construction, which built the new Lake Champlain Bridge. Flatiron used the marina to construct the bridge arch, which was then floated on barges to the bridge site. The 402-foot arch weighed 1.8 million pounds. Barges took the arch two miles from the marina to the bridge site, where it was lifted into place by cranes. The trip took several hours.

Moriah from page 1 Wilson (highway superintendent Jamie Wilson) they did everything possible to keep (repair) costs down,” Scozzafava said. “There was a tremendous amount of damage.” The loan is at 1.89 percent interest from Glens Falls National Bank. It is an open loan, which allows the town is pay only the interest until it can repay the principle. FEMA has promised to reimburse Moriah $402,000 for the April flooding. The town has filed paperwork seeking FEMA assistance for Hurricane Irene, but has not yet received a formal answer. Officials are confident FEMA will help with the August storm costs. “We’ll get the money (from FEMA),” Scozzafava said. “It’s a question of when. We need money now, that’s why we’re borrowing. When the FEMA money comes, we’ll pay off the loan.” Scozzafava said it’s likely the town will receive the FEMA money in installments. If so, the town will pay on the loan’s principle as the money arrives. Officials believe the FEMA payments, once the Hurricane Irene amount is totalled, will cover the principle and the interest associated with the loan. Moriah is fortunate, compared to other towns, the supervisor said. “The amount Moriah is borrowing is relatively small compared to what other communities have to borrow,” Scozzafava said.

Some like it hot A

ccording to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), global temperatures for the year of 2011, currently rank as the tenth highest since records were first established in 1850. Scientists, who believe global warming is responsible for the continuing drop in Arctic sea ice, watched as the ice pack reached its lowest recorded levels again this year. Climate change is happening, and it appears to be accelerating. Doubters should consider the facts. Until 2011 is retired to the history books, the top ‘Hottest Years on the Planet” occurred in 2010, 1998, 2005, 2003, 2002, 2009, 2004, 2006, 2007, and 2001. Our wild weather is also getting windier. Six of the top ten wind records have been established since 1998. The last ten Spring seasons, spanning the years from 2002-2011 were among the windiest and driest 10-year period on record, capping a clear upward trend that began in the mid-1990s. While skeptics remains, it is obvious that the climate has changed. Anyone who spends time outdoors has come to recognize that the weather is getting both warmer, and wetter and windier. It stands to reason that water will evaporate more rapidly as temperatures continue to rise, and temperatures will increase. This increase in evaporation will result in greater and more frequent precipitation. Fortunately, the majority of our local precipitation came as snow last winter, but when it did rain; it came down in buckets. Eventually, last year’s snowpack combined with the heavy spring rains to cause flooding that raised havoc from the High Peaks to Lake Champlain, and beyond. The spring floods of 2011 were responsible for establishing new records across the region for both lake and river levels. And while the spring floods were labeled as “100 year flood” events, heavy rains in the early fall of 2011, soon eclipsed them with a “500 year flood” event. Fortunately, the most recent floods were not compounded by a dense snowpack. The heavy rains were enough to cause severe damage, all alone. After reviewing articles that I've written at the completition of the Big Game Hunting Season, since 2000, the anecdotal evidence

Outdoor • Times of Ti - 23

of climate change is painfully obvious. Here are a few to consider. 2000: End of the hunt- The unpredictable fall weather continues to confound hunters… with weather changing from 10 degrees below and snow to 45 degrees and rain…the grass is still green with no snowflakes in sight, even the hills are no longer white. 2001: With the end of the season quickly approaching, warm weather combined with a lack of snow has stunted deer movement. The major complaint coming from hunters was the fact that the “woods remained brown” for the majority of the season. 2002: With no snow, the primary woodland color remains brown, another distinct advantage for the deer. Rain, which is expected by the weekend, further compounds the hunter’s disadvantage as it keeps scent low to the ground and generally makes for uncomfortable travel. 2003: With the continued warm weather patterns and the lack of snow, the Regular Big Game Hunting season drawing to a close on Sunday; it appears this year will be one of the brownest in recent memory, as the snow cover has been quite scarce throughout the entire hunting season. 2004: Deer hunters lament the continuation of the unseasonably warm weather. The weather continues to confound hunters while other outdoor enthusiasts such as anglers, hikers, bikers and birders delight in the current conditions. Thanksgiving passed without a trace of snow, as weather patterns delivered heavy rains, high winds and warmer than average temperatures. The weather just didn’t cooperate with hunters this year. 2005: The weather has remained balmy with no snow in sight. Even in the high country, the remaining snows have melted due to weather conditions more typical of June than December. I gaze out the window in the last throes of the season and the thermometer reads 63 degrees. I watch as winds gusting rip limbs off the trees in my side yard. 2006: The Regular Big Game season will conclude at sunset on Sunday, December 7 in the Northern Zone and reports concern-

Despite the effects of climate change, the Adirondack region has managed to retain enough snow cover to permit the continuation of most winter sports. Unfortunately, the duration the winter season continues to be condensed, with less snow during the hunting and an abbreviated ice fishing season. ing hunter success are mixed. Hunters continue to lament autumn’s unseasonably warm weather, which has disrupted the hunting season and stunted the movement of wildlife. 2007: As I write this column, a heavy snow continues to fall. Although a consistent tracking snow was lacking for the majority of the hunting season, conditions have been far better than the previous four seasons…. when last weekend’s storm subsided on Saturday evening, deer that had been down for two days were finally on the move 2008: The unusual weather patterns, with warmer temperatures and a lack of consistent snow, are now the standard in most areas of the Adirondacks. It would be difficult for any North Country hunter to question the reality of climate change as it has become as obvious as the brown ground underfoot. 2009: The Last Big Hunt: Thanksgiving weekend has long been considered a benchmark that signals the rapid transition from fall to winter. However, it has not been a very reliable indicator. This season, hunters have gone without any significant snow cover. It's been another brown season. 2010: The northern zone big game hunting season, will end with less than a full week of snow on the ground. It was not unexpected. For years, the big game season has remained nearly snowless. 2011: Ditto the remarkable remarks listed above. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman r esiding in Ray Br ook. Contact him at

ELIZABETHTOWN — More than 100 people packed into the Old Courthouse at the Essex County Government Center with a request that some may not have expected to hear. Raise our taxes. A total of 24 people spoke at the 2012 county Moriah Supervisor budget hearing Monday, Dec. 5, with most asking for the Essex County Board of Supervisors to reinstate funding for a number of programs, including the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Adirondack Harvest and the Adirondack Regional Airport. A number of programs were either partially or completely cut in the proposed budget brought to the board by the county budget committee, which also included the use of $4 million in fund balance and the elimination of 30 county positions. “We need to support you when it comes to the tough decisions to raise taxes in order to provide those services,� Gordon Davis of Westport said. “These are difficult times that we are living through, and you are struggling with these difficult decisions. I admire you for the way that you are tackling this. The truth is government services cost money.� Each speaker received a round of applause from those who packed into the courthouse as they spoke about contract agencies and county employees who could be facing layoffs. “I’m all right with seeing my taxes raised $90 and leave it the way that it is,� Jim Hotaling, a county employee from Willsboro, said about the proposal to cut 30 jobs from the budget as recommended by the county budget committee. “In my department, the cuts would get rid of two positions, cutting us from seven people to five.� Essex County CSEA President Michael McGinn also spoke, asking the board to take a closer look at the budget in order to avoid layoffs. McGinn added that he felt the union had attempted to bargain in good faith. “We did meet with the county in November and talks did break down,� McGinn said. “The county walked away from the table, but I am willing to sit down again. But I really want you to look at this budget if you are going to start to take jobs away.� McGinn said that he felt county cars for employees could be done away with and that the county should override the 2 percent tax cap if it meant jobs would be saved. County Chairman Randall “Randy� Douglas responded to McGinn’s remarks with an invitation. “The last time that we heard from the union, it was a letter that read that you were not authorized to re-open the contract negotiation,� Douglas said. “I’m willing to meet with you, Mike, and talk about the employee contract and negotiate. I will be in my office tomorrow morning and I hope that you will attend.� “I plan to be there and take that challenge,� McGinn said. “I will be open to hear what they have to say.� Other supervisors also chimed in on the union contract, which they have asked be reopened to look at the possibility of a pay freeze. “I am hopeful that the union will take (Douglas) up on the offer,� Moriah Supervisor Thomas “Tom� Scozzafava said. “I believe that this county has been more than fair to the union and I do not think that it is unfair to ask the union to take a pay freeze for a year in order to save these 30 jobs.� “I have to say that I believe the union is being selfish,� Keene Supervisor William “Bill� Ferebee said. “They need to come back to the table and take into consideration all of the employees that they are representing.� Douglas also said that he felt that while he feels Gov. Andrew Cuomo is doing good things for the economy, he feels there is one area that needs to be addressed. “We would not be having any of these conversations if the state took over Medicaid,� Douglas said. “There are only two states in the country that let Medicaid trickle down to the counties, here and California. We spend $7 million on Medicaid in this county, and if we had that $7 million to spend elsewhere, we would not be having any of these conversations.� However, several supervisors said that the reality of the situation presented tough choices. “This whole process has been very challenging,� Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery-Corey said. “I hate the fact that we are looking at layoffs. The decisions that we are being asked to make are downright heartbreaking.� Following the public hearing, the board decided to meet again Monday, Dec. 12, at 11:30 a.m. to further look at the budget. The county budget has to be approved by the board on or before Dec. 20.
