Christmas Express headed to Schroon Holiday gift program collecting toys for children By Fred Herbst email@example.com SCHROON LAKE — The Christmas Express is headed to Schroon Lake and North Hudson. The annual Christmas wish program is now collecting donations. “As children’s heads are filled with thoughts of Santa, the elves at Christmas Express are very busy and extremely concerned about how they will fulfill all those Christmas wishes that create holiday memories and magic,” said Patti Mehm of the Christmas Express program. “The current economic situation has had a huge impact on the number of families seeking assistance, as well limiting those able to give this holiday season.” Each year Christmas Express volunteers collect toys for approximately 50 local children, ranging in age from infants to 13 years old. Those special items are then delivered to each household. A “Wish Tree” is set up at Grand Union on Main Street in Schroon Lake. The children have desig-

mons Residential Health Care as a certified nursing assistant (CNA), has received the 2010 Long Term Care Employee of Distinction award. Daniel Heim, interim president and CEO of the New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (NYAHSA), presented the award. There were 18 statewide recipients of the award that was established by NYAHSA to acknowledge the efforts of front-line staff members working in long-term care settings within New York State. This is the second time one of Heritage Commons’ employees has received this award. Terry Sprague received this same award in 2008. “Being a CNA is a physically demanding job, and can be emotionally draining as well; but with Liz; you would never know it,” stated Laura Tirado, administrator for Heritage Commons. “She stands out as a loving and compassionate caregiver and is often requested by residents and families. She has a warm, cheery smile; and no matter what kind of day she is having; she always smiles and says “good morning” to all that come in contact with her.” LaPointe was nominated by supervisor, Mary Ellen Ellithorpe, director of nurses, and Sandra Bolton, chairwoman of InterLakes Health Board of Directors. Tirado has challenged each employee to strive to be next year’s recipient.

The club has planned a “Win at 55” contest. Kiwanians will sell chances allowing people to guess the day and time the temperature reaches 55 degrees after Feb. 28. Those
coming closest will win a $1,000 first prize, a $400 second prize and a $200 third prize. The temperature will be measured by underground weather.com at the official certified site for Underground Weather at the Downing residence on the Portage in Ticonderoga.

uating seniors, support of the elementary school playground, hosting the annual senior citizen Christmas party and helping with the renovation of the Ticonderoga Municipal Beach Pavilion. Additionally each year Kiwanis members log hundreds of volunteer hours for the betterment of our area.

Ti students visit Dartmouth College TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga High School Art Club and SUNY Albany Spanish students traveled to Dartmouth College to attend a guided tour of two art exhibits recently. The groups toured the Jose Clemente Orozco murals in the east and west wings of the Baker library and then moved on to the Hood museum installations of European Art, Native American ledger drawings and Frank Stella modern art exhibits. Art teacher Britney McCarthy and Spanish teacher Lynne Lenhart coordinated the effort following the invitation from Dartmouth. The student groups prepared for the excursion in advance through teaching programs on Mexican histo-
ry and a study of modern art geometric designs. Lenhart presented a history lessons on the turbulent 20th century Mexican civil war and the artwork that blossomed as a result of the dramatic changes during that time. McCarthy explored the modern irregular polygon designs of Frank Stella and had student create artwork patterned in that style. The Ticonderoga students ate lunch at the Dartmouth College dining service between tours and got an opportunity to walk along the “Green” (central quad) at Dartmouth and view the campus at Hanover, N.H. Upon return, the Spanish student composed an essay in Spanish detailing their reaction to the murals that
range over 20 feet high and encompass over 100 feet in length as they stretch between the two wings of the Baker library reserve reading room. Art Club students included Cody Vickroy, Markie teRiele, Ashley Costello, Hannah Herbst, Maura Jebb, Shelby Fernandez, Rebecca Diehl, Wes Porter, Delaney Bush, Joey Bevilacqua, Keely Cooper, Brooke Nadeau and Jennell Coffin. SUNY Spanish students included Jolenta Bishop, Chris Burns, Corey King, Adam Losher, Kyrstie McGuire, Emilee Namer, Brandon Russell, Courtney Shaner, Dennis Towne, Zhuo Hao Zhang, Keeley Andrushko, Carrie Bishop and Adriana Clark.

No accordion music allowed on Sunday By Joan Daby
he following are letters written by Ellen D. Witherbee Atwell in 1899 and 1900 to her nephew Tyler Reed Woodbridge of Victor, Colo. She was age 64 at that time. She tells of her family life, traditions, and some facts of history relating to the Witherbee family, handed down by her parents and grandparents, written at Port Henry. The nephew typed these up in 1900 and inserted some comments. These letters were sent to me from Bill Knowlton of Liverpool in 2002. Ellen Atwell was his great aunt. “Father and Mother were not members of any Church but were reared in Puritan days and were somewhat strict in many ways. I remember one thing - Father would not let us play on the accordion on Sundays. It has just occurred to me, however, that he thought he was entitled to a rest from that one day in seven, as there were four of us learning to play on it without a teacher. It may not have been piety after all. People were more strict in the observance of Sunday in play as well as work. Churches were called Meeting Houses and were used for other than Church purposes. The reason for this was that there were no other large buildings for public meetings. Protocol and lectures were held in them. Dancing parties, card parties and theaters were not allowed in church, members kissing games were proper. The great event was the annual Donation party, each minister having one in the winter. The ministers were not well paid and the Donation party was to eke out their salaries. Each one was expected to carry something wood, butter and provisions of all kinds, vegetables, cloth-

ing and sometimes a little money was given. They also carried food for the entertainment of the evening and what was left was given to the ministers’ families. Doughnuts was one of the staples and they often furnished the minister ’s table for weeks. After a time they rebelled and donations were abandoned. Father played the clarinet in Farr ’s band and they played for dances. The one hotel near us had a nice banding hall but only on rare occasions were my sisters allowed to go, the company not considered very select, but they were permitted to go elsewhere if they a had the chance. Dancing was somewhat different from that now indulged in. They were mostly “contra” dances, or square dances and no waltzing. They took regular steps and conducted themselves in a very dignified manner. No loud talking but they conversed in a subdued tone. In my Mother ’s day, invitations were given weeks be-
forehand and they improved their time by preparing their wardrobe for the occasion. They went at two o’clock in the afternoon and danced until dinner in their thick dresses. Dinner was served about four o’clock and at seven they changed their dresses for the evening. Their evening dresses were sometimes made of silk and sometimes of white muslin and I think they wore some sort of headdress. Near midnight, they had a light supper and soon after came home. Ladies wore slippers and gentlemen pumps. Men always wore coats such as are now used for evening dress only. Anyone who behaved improperly was not allowed to remain. Father was six feet in height and well proportioned. He had a dark complexion, black eyes and dark wavy hair. He was gentlemanly and dignified in manner and rather reserved. He talked when he had something to say, but not for the sake of keeping up the conversation. He was very temperate in the use of tobacco and liquors. He was always pleasant in the family and mild in temper, very fond of his wife and children. Joan Daby is town of Moriah historian.
Support businesses affected by bridge To the Times of Ti: Last year, at this time, all of us in the Champlain Valley were struggling to cope with the loss of the Champlain Bridge. The daunting task of getting support and funding to replace this bridge was taken on by many of our small business owners. When others questioned even rebuilding a bridge near Crown Point, these people fought long and hard to keep everything here where the old bridge stood. I truly doubt we would have the new bridge being constructed now without the heroic efforts of these business owners.
They worked so hard, traveled to Albany and Montpelier and beat the drum long and loud so the rest of us could benefit. Even though they were hurt so much by the bridge closure, they showed such grace under pressure. One business even opened their door at 4 every morning and gave free coffee and snacks to all of the travelers who had to drive two hours each morning and two hours each night. These people are truly a credit to our valley and now they are struggling to survive. A restaurant on the Vermont side gave away free coffee and snacks for a long time and now they too are struggling to make ends meet and stay in business. In recent conversations with several folks who own local businesses, it seems their business is very slow right now. These people have put everything they have into their business. They work incredibly long hours; have invested their life savings, have contributed tax money to our valley, have kept people employed and have tried to stay in business until the new bridge is in place and our valley returns to the life that we had. Some of these folks are barely hanging on and it would be a tragedy to lose them. They survived all that time when they were on “the road to nowhere” and are just trying to survive now. We must rally around these businesses and support them as they supported us during our darkest hour. They worked incredibly hard to make the new bridge happen and we can’t turn our backs on them now. It would be tragic if we lost these wonderful people as owners of our businesses and had more empty stores and restaurants. There are great places to eat, great places to stay (some wonderful bed & breakfast places), great places to shop and historical places to see in the Champlain Valley. Please show your encouragement and support to these hardworking people and help them survive. Thank you. Jean Arleen Breed Crown Point

Diabetes support group may form TICONDEROGA — A diabetes support group is forming in Ticonderoga. “Many young adults and the elderly are not eating and exercising properly,” explained Russell Beebe. “It
would be nice to form a help group for people in and around Ticonderoga with similar problems and objectives. “It is my objective to establish a list of interested
people, who might like to meet on a monthly basis and help each other by sharing their experiences, successes and failures, and to become knowledgeable through reliable sources of educational
COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL • POWERWASHING • PAINTING & WALLPAPERING • WINDOW & OFFICE CLEANING
information,” he added. The first step is to determine if there are an ample number of people interested in forming a group. Interested people can call Beebe at 585-7257. People are asked to say “Support Group” and leave their name and phone number on the answering machine.

Concert From page 1 This year ’s concert will feature the Community Band as well as musicians from Ticonderoga High School and Ti Middle School. Taking part will be the high school and middle school choruses, the Sentinel Big band, the Night Shadows and the Trebled Voices. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted. All proceeds will be given to the Tiny Tim Program. The Tiny Tim program started in 1980 when a group of Ticonderoga Central School teachers realized the need. The program grew to the point the teachers could no longer handle the demand and the program was turned over to a group of lo-
cal volunteers. Helen Gibbs became Tiny Tim chairwoman in 1995 and still serves in that capacity. There have been a lot of changes during the years. Tiny Tim now serves about 75 families and nearly 200 children each holiday season. It costs more than $6,000 a year to operate the Tiny Tim program, Gibbs said. The confidential program decides who gets holiday help using the school’s free and reduced lunch income guidelines. Parents must complete applications. That application includes questions about the children in the homes, such as clothing sizes and gender. This year the Community Band will be under the direction of Dale Quesnel III, a 14-year-old Ti student. Playing in the Communi-
ty Band will be Malinda Chapman, Gillian Wright, Julianne Davis, Caroline Burns, Carly Pinkowski, Paige Hughes and Katherine Towne on flute; Kristen Dickerson on violin; Doug Buckland, Claire Burns, Alaina Bevilacqua and Susan Ward on clarinet; McKenzie Strum and Shelby Turner on bass clarinet; Chris Burns, Skyler Gilbert and Dakota Gilbert on alto sax; Riley Chapman on tenor sax; John Porter, Glen Chapman, Karney manning, Collin Burns and John Cook on trumpet; Marcus Moser and Colvin Chapman on trombone; and Wendy Davis, Kevin Densmore, Tyler Morse and Caleb Burns on percussion.

TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga has been awarded a $15,000 grant by the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust of Saratoga Springs. The funds will support an expanded interpretive program, “These Worthy Fellows are Second to None in Courage,” highlighting the daily lives of the soldiers garrisoned at Fort Ticonderoga. The funding support from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust will help support interpretive staff and the purchase of interpretive clothing, weapons, accoutrement and tools. The fort’s expanded programming will further bring to life the fort’s social and military history as well as the material culture of the 18th century soldiers who served at Fort Ticonderoga. Beth Hill, Fort Ti executive director, said the grant provided by Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust will “support a significant initiative at Fort Ticonderoga that invests in the visitor ’s experience, serves the heart of our mission and meets a national need.” As part of an institutional-wide assessment, Fort Ticonderoga has identified the need for more interpretive opportunities that engage visitors through expanded living history programs. “According to a recent national study, 83 percent of U.S. adults failed when tested on the beliefs, freedoms and liberties established during the American Revolution,” Hill said. “A goal of the fort’s interpretive initiative is to address, in part, the historical amnesia identified in the report. Fort Ticonderoga, often called ‘America’s Fort,’ tells the story of how the blood spilled in the name of empire during the French and Indian War became part of the same story of the blood spilled in the name of liberty during the American Revolution. “We have the rare opportunity to excite the public about a defining history in a very dramatic and participatory way thanks to the generosity of the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust,” Hill said. Fort Ticonderoga is a private not-for-profit historical site. For more information go online at www.FortTiconderoga.org

Pete and Jason Rotella would like to thank their family members and friends of the family who provided so much help and support both before and after Virginia Rotella passed away on November 6th. Virginia was loved by so many people and this showed through very clearly in the overflowing of kind actions and words. Without this tremendous help and support, Virginia would not have received the frequent uplifting visits in her last weeks. She also would not have received such a sincerely heartfelt, loving, and memory-filled farewell. Virginia has been, is and will continue to be deeply missed by all who truly knew her well. We can all be certain that she is looking out for us in whatever ways she can. Thank you again and may God bless you, at Christmas and always. 92286

Conservation funds available TICONDEROGA — New York landowners, farmers and forestland owners have until Jan. 14, 2011, to apply for 2011 conservation program funding. The programs falling within this deadline include the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Initiative (CBWI), the Agricultural Management Assistance Program (AMA), and the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP). Conservation programs were authorized by Congress under the 2008 Farm Bill to provide funding and technical assistance to landowners who voluntarily implement conservation practices. These practices improve natural resources and wildlife habitat on privately owned agricultural land and forestlands. “We are pleased to offer landowners in New York opportunities to address resource concerns related to soil, water, air, plants and animals through a variety of programs,” said NRCS State Conservationist Astor Boozer. “The result will be cleaner water, more productive soils, healthier forests, improved grasslands, and more abundant wildlife for all New York residents.” The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) offers funding assistance in the form of engineered structures, such as manure handling facilities, and conservation practices such as grassed waterways. Focus areas within the EQIP program include livestock waste, cropland, and grazing. Private forestland owners have opportunities to improve forest health and productivity under the woodland program focus area. The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Initiative (CBWI) assists producers to help minimize excess nutrients and sediments in order to restore, preserve, and protect the Chesapeake Bay. In New York, the Bay program offers funding and technical assistance to producers in the priority areas of the Upper Susquehanna Watershed. The Agricultural Management Assistance Program (AMA) focuses on improving irrigation efficiency. A primary goal of the program is to assist agricultural producers in mitigating risk through production diversification or installation of conservation practices. The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) focuses on improving habitat for at-risk shrub-dwelling birds. Additional funding for this program was received as part of the New England/New York Forestry Initiative. Another focus within the program is establishing and enhancing grassland habitat for declining bird species, pollinators, and other wildlife. Applications for EQIP, CBWI, AMA, and WHIP are competitive and ranked based on national, state, and locally identified resource priorities, and their overall benefit to the environment. Interested landowners can apply for all programs at their local USDA-NRCS office. For sign-up details or additional conservation program information contact your local USDA-NRCS office or visit http://www.ny.nrcs.usda.gov/.

Chelsea DuShane was first runner up and received fitness, interview and talent awards. Erin Ross won the spirit award. Chelsea Thatcher also competed in the program.
“This is the last year for the program to be called America’s Junior Miss, it will be changing its name to Distinguished Young Women,” Spring said. “The values and categories will be the same.” “The Crown Point committee would like to thank everyone who donated from the community and surrounding areas,” Spring added. “Without your support we wouldn’t be able to have a program for this long.

You forget to touch your Mothers face, to hug her and tell her you love her everyday because you think you’ll have tomorrow.

I will think of you everyday and never forget your face so soft and smooth. We Love & Miss you Wanda & Family

This is why shopping locally is so important for the holiday season. Economically speaking, doing this helps to keep businesses open and people employed. These local businesses support local charities and nonprofit organizations. Business taxes help support local governments. Don’t fight huge crowds at the mall and spend hours in lines that never seem to end searching for something that has just been sold out. Doesn’t it make more sense, take less time and save lots of money (in gas alone), to shop your local merchants? This year relax, knowing you’ve saved money, time and your sanity, and find the perfect present in your own home town!

Ticonderoga prepares for winter campaign By Fred Herbst
By Fred Herbst
TICONDEROGA — With increased depth, it promises to be a good season for the Ticonderoga boys indoor track team. “I expect our team to be right in the mix of the Section VII race this season,” Coach Walt Thorne said. “There should be a fierce competition amongst the teams. I don’t think we can afford to overlook anyone.” The Sentinels have 21 athletes returning this winter and have 10 newcomers, giving Ti its deepest team in years. Jay Berube, Josh Cook and Joe LaPerle, all state championship meet qualifiers in cross country, are back in the distance events. They joined by veterans Kevin Densmore and Javeed Nazir and rookie Brandon Charboneau. The Sentinels figure to again in strong in the sprints and jumps. Returning to the speed events are Michael Barber, Luke Bartlett, Ryan Borho, James Cook, Jacob Demarais, Kelly Dunn, Coleman Granger, Jarryn Granger, Jonathyn Granger, Jay Hebert, Ken Johnson, Patrick Lonergan and Arto Nadeau. They’re joined by rookies Daniel Hermann, Kenneth Johnston, Wesley Porter and Dennis Townes. Ryan Borho, Steven Bussey, Corey King, Adam Losher and Josh Ross return to the throwing events. New throwers are Blake Gautreau, Martin Glazer, Cody O’Hara, Wesley Porter, Patrick Taylor and Dennis Townes. “Team balance will be our biggest strength and with 10 new athletes out for track we should be in pretty good shape this season,” Thorne said. “Michael Barber, Jonathyn Granger, Kelly Dunn, Jay Hebert, will lead the sprinters and jumpers. Jay Berube, Joshua Cook, Kevin Densmore, Patrick Lonergan and Joe LaPerle will lead the distance and middle distance events. Joss Ross will lead the throwers along with the new comers Ryan Borho, Jacob Demarais who if they progress as expected should provide much needed points in the Throwing events by season’s end. “Our youth and having 10 new athletes with little or no experience could be considered a weakness,” he continued. “Hopefully they will learn the skills needed to be competitive over the next several weeks and be an asset to the team.” Assisting Thorne with the team are coaches Phil Kneller with the throws, Jay Wells with the distance events, Ellie Berube with the sprints and distance athletes and Rick Merrill with the jumps.
TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga girls indoor track team is building for the future. “We have youth mixed with some experience, but the greatest strength is our willingness to work hard and never give up,” Coach Walt Thorne said. The Sentinels have 10 athletes returning from last season, led by five members of this fall’s Ti cross country team. The team had the school’s best record in nearly a decade. Tabitha Taylor, Alaina Bevilacqua, Becky Barber, Markie teRiele and Hannah Herbst, all harriers, return to the club. Bevilacqua, Barber and Herbst each qualified for the state cross country championship meet and Taylor would have if not for a late-season illness. That group will hold down the distance events along with rookie Ashlyn LaPerle. Courtney Shaner returns to the Ti roster to lead the sprinters and jumpers. Joining her are veterans Alyssa Fuller and Nicole Fuller along with newcomers Morgan Granger, Alyssa Rodriguez and Taylor Ward. Ti will feature Abigail Gurney and Jordan Quesnel as returning throwers. Taylor Dorsett is a new thrower. “Unfortunately we don’t have the numbers this Indoor season,” Thorne said. “We will play the role of spoiler. “Lack of experience is our greatest weakness, but we are optimistic,” Thorne said. Assisting Thorne with the team are coaches Phil Kneller with the throws, Jay Wells with the distance events, Ellie Berube with the sprints and distance athletes and Rick Merrill with the jumps.

Biking to school? Not this century! A
ccording to a study released by The Outdoor Foundation, more than 137 million Americans participated in outdoor recreational activities last year. That figure represents nearly 50 percent of all Americans, age six and older. However, the study failed to illustrate the growing inactivity crisis among our youth and the alarming disconnect that has been occurring nationwide between children and the outdoors. In less than a generation, the United States has become a very mobile and consumptive nation. The average American household now has at least two cars in the garage, and often three. There are also about 2.7 cell phones per household and we use them more often than our landlines. Over the same timeframe, the average number of bicycles owned has shrunk dramatically, nationwide. In the 1960s, 60 to 70 percent of students who lived within two miles walked or took a bike to school. Now, it’s down to less than 9 percent and bike racks have been replaced by student parking lots. As one student recently explained, “Bikes are fun, but not for school. If you’re 16 and still riding a bike to school ... well, it’s just not too cool.”
Digitally inanimate Today’s young men and women are aptly described as the “Digital Generation.” They came of age at a time when the world was connected as never before. With the advent of computers, the Internet and cellular phones, today’s youth are encapsulated and ensnared by a technological bubble. Childhood has changed dramatically.
OUTDOORS • TIMES OF TI - 19
Today’s kids consider radio an ancient technology. As explained to me by an earphone-wagging fan, “Why wait for a DJ to play a song I like, when my iPod is already full of them?” Modern day children are extremely well-connected. A recent Kaiser Family Foundation study reveals the average kid consumes 2.5 hours of music each day, as well as nearly five hours of TV and DVD movies, three hours of Internet and video games, and just 38 minutes of old-fashioned reading. The report did not even consider the time kids spent on the phone or texting and yet the average kid is currently connected for a combined 11.5 hours per day. The burgeoning demands of “wired play,” which are often accomplished alone or with just one other kid, leave little time for Junior to ride a bike, take a hike or go skiing or sledding. Is it any wonder we are becoming an obese nation? You can’t throw a snowball or ride a sled on a Wii. This growing inactivity crisis among America’s youth and the quiet disconnect between youth and the outdoors may have serious consequences unless it is addressed in the near future.
What are we doing? Although The Outdoor Foundation’s 2010 report revealed increases in a number of recreational pursuits last year, there were also significant decreases, especially in activities they have been tracked for more than a decade. The Outdoor Foundation worked with its partners in the Physical Activity Council to measure participation in 117 diverse sports, fitness and recreational activities. In total, 77 percent of Americans age 6 and older, or about 217 million people, participated in at least one activity. However, this still leaves 33 percent or 64.6 million people who are inactive, even in the broadest definition of activity. The report revealed the major activity increase has been in running/jogging, which is up 39.8 percent over the past decade. Activities including day hiking/8.4 percent, trail running/16.0 percent percent and snowshoeing/17.4 percent experienced similar increases. On the flip side, activities reporting a decade long decrease include BMX bicycling/-43.6 percent, canoeing/-7.6 percent, freshwater fishing/-6.3 percent, flyfishing/-17.1 percent and scuba diving/-36.7 percent It is estimated nearly 151 million Americans took part in at least one high calorie activity. This number drops to 78 million people who claim to be frequent participants in high calorie activities, less than one-third of the nation’s population above the age of six. More than half of the adult population is sedentary; they do not participate in any physical activities. Although three-quarters of all student age respondents reported they took part in PE at school regularly, only about one-third participated in outdoor activities, team sports or cycling. Better than half (55.6 percent) of all school-age children reported being non-active outside of PE class.
The Shoe Leather Express While the numbers may be startling, it is important to note threequarters of all children, ages 612, report their parents are the most important influence on their participation in outdoor activities. If we want our Stone cairns, placed to mark an old trail, took kids to get in- on the appearance of a snow covered Gnome volved, we must following last weekend’s storm.” involve ourPhoto by Joe Hackett selves. The most important form of recreation is an activity that becomes routine and regular, they become a part of your lifestyle. Start simply, by walking to the store, the Post Office or to another easy to access landmark whether a bridge, a stream or a nearby open space, and take Junior along. It’s always more fun to share an activity with someone. During the winter, it is important to have a regular routine for getting outdoors. Preferably, try to find one comfortably accessible and easily managed in all sorts of weather. It doesn’t take much time, an hour a day is sufficient I was often reminded in my youth, “Keep your feet moving and your mouth shut, and you’ll go places,” and it’s still true today. Sure, it’s nice to stop for a chat and be neighborly, but the point is to keep moving. It is also important to note regular riders of the old “Shoe Leather Express” rarely stop to linger at the doctor ’s office. The more often you keep your treads in two-wheel drive, the less often you’ll need to bring them to the repair shop. Despite the downturn in our national economy, the fact remains travelers are gravitating to natural settings where recreation is relatively inexpensive and readily-available. This is good news for the Adirondacks, from a market perspective. “We see the economy driving people back to nature. This has tremendous implications for health and wellness issues surrounding the sharp increases in childhood obesity,” said Christine Fanning, executive director of The Outdoor Foundation. “Outdoor recreation is finally being recognized as part of the solution. Our position is that nature should be the first prescription.” Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tips for wholesome eating
Wednesday, Dec. 15
Your body will feel slow and sluggish if you eat nutrientdense food. Here’s how to get in the habit of eating well. * Reduce Sodium (salt) to help prevent water retention and high blood pressure. Look for the “low sodium” label and season meals with a few grains of course sea salt instead of cooking with salt. * Enjoy good fats. Reap the rewards of olive oil, avocados, salmon, walnuts, flaxseed, and other monounsaturated fats. Research shows that the fat from these delicious sources protects your body against heart disease by controlling “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and raising “good” HDL cholesterol levels. * Fiber up. Avoid constipation, lower the risk of chronic diseases, and feel fuller longer by increasing fiber intake. Your go-to fiber-foods are raw fruits and veggies, wholegrains, and beans. * Cook smart. The best way to prepare veggies is by steaming or sauteing in olive oil-it preserves nutrients. Forget boiling-it leeches nutrients. * Try to include five colors on your plate. Fruits and veggies rich in color correspond to rich nutrients (think: blackberries, melons, yams, spinach, tomato, zucchini.
