Meet Haley Johnson John Brown to be remembered next weekend Lake Placid native vying for spot on Olympic biathlon team By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com LAKE PLACID — Haley Johnson may likely represent the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada in February, but this home-grown athlete still remains firmly rooted in the community. Johnson, a 27-year-old native of Lake Placid, recently left for Sweden in preparation for the 2009-10 Biathlon World Cup. Over the next several weeks, she will have a series of opportunities to secure her place on the U.S. Olympic team. “I am really excited about this upcoming season,” said Johnson. “I head into winter training and the [World Cup] competitions the strongest I’ve ever been.” There are four slots open for the U.S. Olympic team for women’s Haley Johnson biathlon. Up to two women can Photo courtesy USOC/USBA qualify by finishing in the top 30 in any event on the World Cup circuit. Remaining slots will be filled in mid-January based on an Olympic qualifying event in Germany. Johnson is one of three women on the U.S. World Cup team, all of whom competed in last year ’s World Cup. She was the only one with a top-30 finish in a major event, nabbing 23rd place in the 15 km individual race at the 2009 World Championships in Korea. Still, the journey for this Olympic hopeful began with her father on a little slope behind her family’s Lake Placid home where, at the age of two, she strapped on her first pair of skis. She and her two younger siblings, Kara, 24, and Lars, 18, both accomplished skiers, each developed their skills early on the slopes of Whiteface and other nearby trails. “My parents chose to raise us in the Adirondacks because of the outdoor opportunities and our family ties to the town,” Johnson said, “and thus, from a very early age we all were very lucky to be involved with skiing.” The tradition of skiing in Johnson’s family goes back quite a ways in Lake Placid. Her grandfather, Bill Hovey, was a prominent alpine and waterski instructor here in the 1950s, and a ski trail on Mount Whitney is named in tribute to him. Her father spent many years as a volunteer and freestyle youth coach for the New York Ski Education Foundation. Haley naturally got involved in the Lake Placid Ski Club youth programs through NYSEF, where she developed an affinity for skiing, especially downhill. She went on to attend the nearby National Sports Academy to pursue alpine skiing at a higher level. “It turned out that I really wasn’t having fun with it anymore,” Johnson said, “and at the same time, my Earth Science teacher, also the local NYSEF Nordic coach, Kris Cheney-Seymour, urged and encouraged me to give crosscountry a try. I did, loved it, and made an immediate switch.” From there, she picked up biathlon, which combines crosscountry skiing and rifle-shooting. “I liked biathlon, mainly because it is something that I was then able to continue throughout the winter and train for in Lake Placid,” she said. Johnson said growing up in the Olympic Village provided just the right people and facilities to fuel her interest in traditional winter sports. “I not only skied, but also tried speed skating and figure skating,” she said. “I could have even pursued one of the sliding sports if I desired.” Biathlon stuck, however, and Johnson continued to compete while attending college in Maine. As her skills developed and she began qualifying for more international competitions, she gained more financial support and decided to train full-time at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid. Johnson said competing overseas and traveling to other ski towns throughout the world has given her even more of an appreciation for the Adirondacks. “After spending time training in Sweden, while at college, and in northern Maine, it was great to return home,” said

By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com LAKE PLACID — One of the region’s most prominent historical figures will be the center of attention next weekend as a coalition of cultural, educational and historic organizations presents a series of activities to commemorate his life and his death. John Brown moved his family to North Elba in 1849 to assist with a free black settlement called “Timbucto.” Ten years later, he and his followers attacked the U.S. Arsenal at Harper's Ferry in an ill-fated attempt to incite a slave revolt. He was subsequently tried, convicted and executed, and his body was transported back to his home in Lake Placid. “John Brown Coming Home,” an initiative to commemorate the 150th anniversary of those events, will feature an illustrious series of events across Essex County Dec. 4-8. The weekend of events kicks off at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. as area students who have been working in concert with professional artists present personal works of art, dance, song, and poetry inspired by Brown’s legacy. At 7:30 p.m., J.W. Wiley, Director of the Center for Di-

The John Brown State Historic Site on the outskirts of Lake Placid will be one of many venues to host events for “John Brown Coming Home,” a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, Va., and the return of his body to North Elba. Photo by Matt Bosley

versity, Pluralism, and Inclusion for SUNY-Plattsburgh, will lead an exploration of contemporary films about present-day slavery and how they relate to the historic conditions of racism that motivated John Brown. The event is presented by the Adirondack Film Society, and a reception will follow. Saturday, Dec. 5, the High Peaks Resort will host a Symposium on the Life and Legacy of John Brown. This

event begins at 9 a.m. and will feature well-noted professors and historians speaking on the AfricanAmerican experience in the years surrounding the Civil War and the experiences and faith that shaped John Brown. “A lot of attention has been given this year to the actions of John Brown and the abolitionists who supported him, and not enough to the critical role that Black Americans played in setting

the stage and forcing the issue of slavery on the national conscious,” said Naj Wikoff, coordinator of the 150th Commemoration of John Brown, “It was Free Blacks who took up Gerrit Smith’s offer to leave the urban environment to the Adirondack wilderness in an attempt to create a new beginning; without them John Brown would never have moved here where his raid was planned.”

Kids share their experience being in ‘The Nutcracker’ Performance continues this weekend at Hartman Theatre, Lake Placid shows to follow By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Ballet Ensemble doesn’t just love having children in the audience for their performances, they enjoy having them on stage as well. The ensemble’s upcoming annual production of “The Nutcracker” features several children who are both new to the stage and what some would consider seasoned veterans. Madison Cleveland, a 6thgrade student at Beekmantown Middle School, has been performing in The Nutcracker for the past five years, though said she still loves being on stage. “Ballet is a story told without words, just by movement,” she said. “It’s

AMC community relations team nets recognition SARANAC LAKE — The Community Relations team at Adirondack Medical Center has been selected as the winner of the 2009 Public Relations Excellence Award by the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS). The award is to acknowledge the breadth of creativity and excellence for advocacy efforts of New York's health care providers. AMC was chosen as the award recipient from the Northeastern New York region, which includes nearly 100 hospitals and long term care facilities. Each year, HANYS calls upon its membership to engage in grassroots advocacy efforts on a broad range of topics. One of the more dominant issues relates to the state budget process, and the often serious ramifications of funding cuts for health care providers. AMC uses a broad communication plan to engage its internal audience such as staff, trustees and physicians, as well as the external audience like the broader community, civic and community leaders, and elected officials. AMC uses a variety of tactics to implement its advocacy strategy, including press releases, paid advertising, community meetings, hosting roundtable discussions with elected leaders either at AMC or at the elected officials district or capitol offices. The AMC Community Relations team is comprised of Cheryl Breen Randall, Executive Director of the AMC Foundation & Community Relations, and Joe Riccio, Communications Manager. “Cheryl and Joe have done

Are we teaching An idiotic notion children safety or fear? D

A

recent article in the Times Union chronicled a story about a 12-year-old boy named Adam Marino and is typical of actions that may have crossed over from teaching children to be safe to teaching them to be fearful. Adam and his mother ride four miles to his school, weather permitting. On the first day of school, Adam By Scot Hurlburt and his mom were met by school officials and a New York State Trooper. Adam and his mother were notified that Adam was out of compliance with school regulations that make walking or riding a bike to school illegal. Adam and his mom decided to defy the rules and have continued to ride to school. The school is reviewing its policy, in the mean time, Adam is breaking school rules. Principal Paul Byrne stated that the school policy against bike riding is rooted in safety. “Students must ride through traffic to get to school and they are unsupervised during the ride. There may be dangerous individuals in our community that might endanger the children.” While everyone is concerned about the safety of children, it seems to me that there needs to be well reasoned limits on how far reaching the protections become. In the instance of Adam Marino, not only has the school denied Adam the opportunity to engage in an activity that is healthy, they are denying him his right to self determination. In addition, the school has usurped the parental rights of Adam’s parents. If Adam’s parents believe that he is not at risk, that opinion should not be overruled without considerable reasons to the contrary. Given the level of school age obesity in America, the school might rather commend Adam and his mother. Growing up, my friends and I wrecked our bikes, skinned our shins and yes, we even got our feelings hurt. I would like to think that these experiences gave us a little grit or gravitas. Just the act of getting outside should be encouraged. Most researchers agree that academic performance and thought-formulation improves when students get outside. I can appreciate that parents and other adults that are in charge of children have been affected by the frequent media reminders that children do get killed while riding a bike or walking. These events also happen to adults. Because the media devotes so much time to child abduction, adults worry about children being victimized by a child predator in their community and these concerns are real. In reality, true stranger abductions or victimizations are extremely rare. I hope that as adults, we don’t become so consumed with fear that we steal essential human experiences from our children. Sometimes, children want to be free to explore, free to imagine and free of fear. I would like to think that there are times when our children can be in our communities where many adults watch, but don’t hover over children. Remember, all kids count.

uring my undergraduate days, I subscribed to the idiotic notion that I should treat college as a time to “follow my interests” and “deepen my understanding of the human condition.” As a result, I made a mistake that will haunt me forever – I majored in English, thus cementing my permanent status as one of the world’s least employable losers. Indeed, the only losers less employable than English majors are mimes, Steven Seagal, and philosophy majors. Still, my biggest mistake wasn’t so much majoring in English as not recognizing what a big mistake majoring in English was until the middle of my senior year, when it was too late to switch to something more lucrative, like, say, prelaw, or pre-multibillionaire. I discovered the immensity of my predicament when I visited the office of career services to ask what kind of postgraduation job they’d lined up for me. Since attending my college cost roughly the gross domestic product of Luxembourg (per semester), I’d assumed that the office of career services automatically secured each student a cushy, sevenfigure job, regardless of such trivialities as “competence,” or “work ethic.” The on-duty career counselor, however – a bubbly woman wearing a smart mauve pantsuit – laughed at my question (as if she thought I was joking) and handed me a sheet of paper covered front and back with multiple-choice questions. “In all seriousness,” she said, “the first step toward gainful employment is filling out the appropriate survey.” And so, feeling duped – I wouldn’t have bothered with college if I’d known a bachelor ’s degree didn’t guarantee lifelong employment and vast wealth – I filled out the appropriate survey, answering every question with either a “no” or a “not sure.” Had I interviewed for any jobs? No. Had I applied for any jobs? No. What about graduate school? Had I at least applied to graduate school? No. Why in the name of Richard Branson had I so thoroughly sabotaged my chances of becoming a multibillionaire? Not sure. At the career counselor ’s urging, I applied for a couple of editorial-assistant positions: one at Random House and one at a company I’ll call No Name & Sons – a company that, despite having published the likes of Edgar Allen Poe in centuries past, now mostly put out science textbooks and technical manuals. I wouldn’t have applied to No Name & Sons on my own (because they mostly put out science textbooks and technical manuals), but, on account of my lack of

SATURDAY November 28, 2009 prospects, the career counselor made me. I never heard from Random House, but No Name & Sons asked me to interview at a career fair in Manhattan during spring break. Conducted in a booth in a crowded hotel conference room – where hundreds of other college seniors were interviewing for hundreds of other jobs – the interview consisted primarily of a hollowBy Dan Leonidas cheeked man with a mass of glossy brown hair shellacked to his skull telling me about the company’s illustrious past. When he finished, he asked where I was from. “Saranac Lake,” I said. “In the Adirondacks.” He flashed what he probably thought was a friendly smile, but what looked to me like a smirk. “Do you think you’re ready to live in the city?” No, I didn’t. The city, with its hordes of pigeons and its geometrically precise layout, terrified me. “Definitely,” I said, grinning and nodding emphatically. The man stared at me blankly, and I felt a bead of sweat trickle down my back. I forced myself to grin more widely, stretching my cheeks nearly to the splitting point. “I think I could definitely see living here.” Frowning – he obviously saw through my lies – the man jotted something on his yellow legal pad. When he looked up, he was smirking again; he thanked me for coming in and wished me luck, and I shook his hand and left, suspecting that I’d never talk to anybody from No Name & Sons again. And I didn’t – but I found I didn’t care. In fact, not getting the job was a tremendous relief. I wasn’t sure exactly what editorial assistants did, but I doubted it was pleasant, especially at a publishing house like No Name & Sons. I could picture myself spending all day copyediting a geology textbook, then soberly clocking out, taking the elevator to the roof, and leaping to a messy – but welcome – demise. Besides, if I was going to be a loser anyway – that is, if I was going to make less than seven figures a year – I figured I might as well commit myself to the role and mooch off my parents for as long as I could manage.

More coupon secrets: big stores, bigger discounts

I

n many areas, shoppers have several grocery stores to choose from. The same area may have smaller grocery markets, discount grocers that offer “everyday low prices” and large-scale, major-chain supermarkets. Many people tend to consider large supermarkets to be more expensive than their low-price, themed counterparts. This is a reputation that the large supermarkets typically don’t deserve, as they can be some of the best places to save big. Consider this point: Grocery stores that offer “everyday low prices” definitely have prices that are not too high. But prices here are also usually not too low, either. These stores offer the same prices on items week to week, with few to no sales. By contrast, the larger supermarkets offer “high/low” prices. On any given day, it’s true about half the items’ prices will be higher at the supermarket than at an “everyday low price” store. But prices on the other half of the items will be lower. Those are the items that Super-Couponers watch for price drops on. When the prices take a big dip, that’s when we can move in with our coupons and bring the price down even more. This is an advantage supermarkets can have over other stores. During a typical 12-week sales cycle at a supermarket, the price of any particular item will fluctuate from high to low. But just once during that time does the price hit its lowest low — we call this the “12-week-low.” This is the lowest price that item will appear at during the price cycle. Why is it a good idea to watch for these 12-week-lows? That 12-week-low price is typically 50 percent lower than the regular shelf price. Any time we’re able to buy something for half the original price, even without a coupon, it’s time to buy it! Of course, we also want to use coupons at that point to bring the price down even more. With coupons we can often save 70 percent or more off the original price.

Here’s an example. A box of granola bars is usually $3.29 at my large supermarket. The same brand of granola bars is $2.99 at an “every-day low price” grocery in town. The grocery store doesn’t change or cycle its prices; the granola bars are $2.99 every single day. But at the supermarket, the granola bars will go on sale numerous times over the next 12 weeks. Some By Jill Cataldo weeks the bars will be the full $3.29, but other weeks the price will be lower … and lower still. I watched the bars over several weeks and saw them go on sale for $2.99, and $2.49 and $1.99. But one week, the bars dropped again, to “2 for $3,” or $1.50 a box. During this entire time, I was holding onto a $1 coupon for the granola bars. When the bars hit $1.50, they were now on sale for less than half their original price. I used my $1 coupon and took the box home for 50 cents. If I had purchased the granola bars at the “every-day low price” store with my $1 coupon, I would still have paid $1.99 a box. But I picked them up for a quarter of that price … at the larger, so-called “more expensive” supermarket!

uring the summer, I can spend hours just looking at a garden alive with butterflies, birds, bees, and blossoms. But, up here, it seems like the time to enjoy the blossoms is so short compared to the time the garden is empty of plants and pollinators. Despite the lack of actively growing plants, there is still plenty to do in the garden. If you have a vegetable garden, now is the time to make sure all the garden debris is raked up and the garden is put to bed. It’s important to clean up all the dead foliage every fall, because garden pests and plant diseases can overwinter in garden debris and cause problems in the garden next year. If you had early blight or powdery mildew this season, be sure to be thorough with fall garden clean-up. These steps also help to prevent viruses, thrips, and problem beetles (such as potato beetles and flea beetles): Start by pulling up all the plants and weeds in the garden. Get the roots and all. Then shred and compost any healthy plant material. The weeds and diseased plants should be bagged and disposed of in the garbage. Rake up all the remaining plant debris.

Next, rake up any fallen tree leaves from your lawn area or if you don’t have leaves in your lawn, snag some of your neighbor ’s leaves. Run the leaves over with a mulching lawnmower and add them to the garden bed. In the spring, turn or till the remaining leaves into the soil to improve your gardens fertility. It really is amazing how a little extra time spend cleaning up the garden now, will make for a healthier garden next year!

Wing Wars event a big hit To the editor, It always warms my heart to see how much our North Country community supports the air medical rescue teams of Life Flight who standby everyday to help care for our region’s critically ill and seriously injured. On Sunday, November 8, at Wing Wars II, those very people who stand by saw for themselves how much what they do, by volunteering their time and talents, means to the people of the region. These volunteers believe they are just neighbors helping neighbors. What they saw was a great number of their neighbors helping them by taking the time to go to Romano’s Saranac Lanes to taste some of the best chicken wings in the Tri-Lakes and, in doing so, supporting North Country Life Flight’s lifesaving mission. Thank you to everyone who attended. The Wing Wars concept was the brainchild of WSLP-FM/93.3 and we can’t thank them enough for their continuing support of Life Flight. We are truly grateful to everyone at the radio station. For Wing Wars II, they again brought together a great group eateries to compete. Congratulations to Lisa Planty of Wise Guys for successfully defending the title and keeping the Wing Wars Chicken Trophy for another year. I personally tried all the wings and I can tell that voting was extremely difficult.

The end result was very close. Not only are these all great eateries, but they are big community supporters in that every participating restaurant donated wings and staff for the event. Thanks so much to Romano’s, Wise Guys, Dancing Bears, Desperados, Kanu, Northern Exposure and Station Street Bar and Grill for their generosity. We extend our sincere appreciation to Romano’s for hosting the event and A&M Beverages for their sponsorship, as well as all the media who joined WLSP-FM in letting the community know about the event, including the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Lake Placid News, Press-Republican and Tri-Lakes Free Trader. All this support comes during a time when North Country Life Flight is experiencing its busiest year ever, so it couldn’t be more important. Life Flight came about 20 years ago because our community recognized and supported the vital need for air medical rescue service in this beautiful, yet remote region, we call home. That continuing community support was very evident at Wing Wars II. On behalf of everyone who has benefited and will benefit by your support of Life Flight, I extend heartfelt appreciation. WSLP-FM/93.3 told us all to look forward to Wing Wars III in 2010. Indeed, we will.

In the Military Euber promoted to Private LATHAM — Maj. Gen. Joseph J. Taluto, The Adjutant General for the State of New York, announces the promotion of members of the New York Army National Guard in recognition of their capability for additional responsibility and leadership. Joshua Euber from Vermontville, and serving with Det 2 Company B, 2-108th Infantry has been promoted to the rank of Private.

Nutcracker From page 1 really a lot of fun.” Madison said she particularly likes The Nutcracker, which tells the story of a young girl named Claire who receives a nutcracker on Christmas Eve, then dreams of being transported to a magical world with the nutcracker, who becomes a prince. “Ever since I was a little girl and saw The Nutcracker for the first time, I knew that I really, really wanted to play the role of Claire. Now, my dream has come true,” said Madison. It took many hours of practice, said Madison, but her hard work paid off. And, so did the work of Eydon Thomashow, a 7th-grader at Saranac Lake Middle School. Eydon also gets to play the role of Claire, with the two girls alternating who plays Claire during the seven performances the ensemble is hosting between Plattsburgh and Lake Placid. Being in a production like The Nutcracker, said Eydon, is something she feels any child would be able to enjoy. “I’ve been dancing since I was about 3 years old,” said Eydon. “I like the way it makes me feel good even if I’m having a bad day.” Madison and Eydon said they were nervous the first time they each stepped onto the stage, but were quick to say that’s something that’s completely normal. “Usually, with the first performance you’re nervous but then with the second or third you’re not as much,” said Madison. “Yeah, after the second or third you feel like you can basically do anything,” added Eydon. Madison’s younger brother, Paul, a 2nd-grade student at Cumberland Head Elementary, said he was nervous at first, too. However, Paul is taking the stage this year playing the part of a boy at a party and a soldier. “The cool part is you get to wear really, really nice costumes,” said Paul, “and you get to use really nice props like fake swords, trumpets, trombones.” “Plus, it helps you get more flexible for football and baseball and stuff like that,” added Paul, who said ballet teaches good coordination and balance. Julia Drollette, a third-grade student at Morrisonville Elementary School, gets the chance to play a sugar plum attendant and a soldier this year. The first time she was in The Nutcracker, which was two years ago, she played the part of a mouse. Last year, she got the part of a girl at the party. Her hard work and determination has helped her get bigger parts each year. “It was cool,” Julia said about learning she received bigger parts in the production this year. “I like acting. It’s fun.” Korinne Stay, a 12th-grader at Beekmantown High School said she remembers being Julia’s age and just starting on her path to performing. Korinne had the role of a party girl, too, and eventually received more challenging parts over the years. Korinne, who now plays the role of the Mouse King, said she remembers being nervous on stage when she was younger. “I remember being a little intimidated,” said Korinne, “but I really liked it and stayed with it. I definitely enjoy it.” Korinne agreed that performing is hard work. “It can be crazy, but it’s worth it,” she said. “I really like hearing how people like it. It’s a good reward for all the people who do it.” Each of the young performers said the one thing that makes being in a production like The Nutcracker so worthwhile isn’t something that’s seen on stage — the friendships made between them. “I’ve made a lot of new friends,” Madison said as she sat with Eydon. “You do get to meet a lot of nice people,” said Eydon, who added the instructors are among the nice people who help them become better performers. “They’ve helped us come a long way and without them, we wouldn’t be here,” she said. “Ballet is something that’s amazing to watch. Especially, if it’s a good show like ours,” added Korinne, laughing. The North Country Ballet Ensemble’s performance of The Nutcracker began at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh’s Hartman Theatre Nov. 27. Performances will continue Saturday, Nov. 28, at 2 and 7:30 p.m. The final Plattsburgh show will be Sunday, Nov. 29, at 2 p.m. The Nutcracker will also be performed at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, 17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13. For more information, including ticket prices, go on-line to www.balletplattsburgh.org or call 534-9334 or 523-2512.

Brown From page 1 Author Russell Banks, a Keene resident whose awardwinning historical novel, Cloudplitter, relates the story of John Brown, will moderate a panel of activists and scholars to discuss modern slavery and what lessons can be taken from the actions of Brown. At 4 p.m., Roy Innis, National President of Congress of Racial Equality, will lead observers along Old John Brown Road to lay a wreath at John Brown’s grave. The Adirondack Community Church will host a tribute to Banks at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 is when a re-enactment of John Brown’s Cortege will proceed across Essex County. At about noon, a casket representing Brown’s will arrive at the Westport Marina following its journey north from West Virginia and across Lake Champlain. The casket will be brought up to the Westport Heritage House, where, at 1 p.m., Banks will read from and discuss Cloudsplitter. Don Papson, president of the North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association, will then present new findings about Underground Railroad activity near John Brown’s North Elba Farm. Tickets to these presentations are $15 and can be obtained through the Adirondack History Center Museum in Elizabethtown by calling 8736466. From Westport, the casket will travel to Elizabethtown, where, at 3 p.m., it is scheduled to be on display at the

United Church of Christ on Court Street. The Adirondack History Center Museum, adjacent to the church, will be open to the public with restrooms available. At 4:30 p.m., a candlelit procession will follow the symbolic coffin as it is brought from the church to the Old Essex County Courthouse, the same building where Brown’s body was temporarily housed 150 years ago on its journey back to North Elba. There, the coffin will lay in state with an honor guard, and the public is welcome to come and pay their respects. A reception will follow at the Deer ’s Head Inn, formerly the Mansion House, where Mary Brown and her companions spent the night of Dec. 6, 1859. Tickets are $40 with proceeds to benefit the Essex County Historical Society, and includes the cost for all events of the day. The coffin will make its way to Lake Placid on Dec. 7. At 3 p.m., a procession will begin on Rte 73, continue up Old Military Road and along John Brown Road, and end at the Farm with the placement of the coffin the in Farmhouse for the evening. Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino, better known as Magpie, will gather at the John Brown Farm at 6 p.m. to present their stirring collection of songs that reflect on the life, death and turbulent times of abolitionist John Brown, his family and followers. An 11 a.m. memorial service on Tuesday, Dec. 8 will bring the commemorative events to a close as re-enactors perform the roles of Mary Brown, Wendell Phillips, and Rev. Joshua Young at the John Brown gravesite.

Johnson From page 1 Johnson. “I’ve always believed that local support is the best support. Living at the Training Center also makes it affordable to train back here. And now I know I am training in the best place possible.” Still, Johnson remembers the mentors in her hometown who had such an impact on her. In an effort to give some of that back to the community, she makes regular visits to a class of fourth graders at Lake Placid

Elementary School. “We talk about skiing, traveling the world, and following your goals when I am in class,” she said, “and when I travel we’ll connect through e-mail and my blog. Last year, I worked with the sixth grade at St. Agnes School.” Johnson may be on the road for a while with competitions scheduled nearly every week December through March, but she no doubt has the support of her hometown fans, both young and old, in her quest for Olympic glory.
