The Giving Thanks to Our Community program at Ticonderoga Middle School provided three Christmas presents each to 27 elementary school students this holiday season. Students raised the money for the gifts, which were then purchased, wrapped and delivered.

Ti students raise money for holiday gifts Middle school continues charity effort By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ McKenna Troche wasnÕ t able to see their faces, but she knows some Ticonderoga children had a bright Christmas thanks to her hard work. Ò I think theyÕ ll smile; theyÕ ll be happy,Ó Troche said of children receiving gifts through the Giving Thanks to Our Community program at Ticonderoga Middle School. Ò IÕ m really glad I could help.Ó The Giving Thanks to Our Community program provided three Christmas presents each to 27 elementary school students. Ò ItÕ s a great program,Ó Tracy Price, Ti Middle School head teacher, said. Ò ItÕ s really a community service for the kids, a chance to give back to the community.Ó Price said about 75 percent of the middle school students worked on the project. The Giving Thanks to Our Community program has been in place four years. Its first three years it was funded by an anonymous donor. This year that person is ill and unable to contribute. Ò We really didnÕ t want this program to end,Ó said Corey Grey, school secretary who assisted with the effort. Ò ItÕ s a really nice program.Ó Ti Middle School students decided to step up and keep it go-

ing. Students held a raffle to raise money to purchase the nearly 100 gifts needed. They sold $5 tickets and awarded three prizes Ñ all the food needed for a Thanksgiving dinner, the food needed for a Christmas dinner and a $150 fuel card. They raised more than $1,500, spending $1,200 on the holiday gift program. The remaining money will be used for supplies needed to make blankets for local nursing home residents. Those blankets will be distributed on ValentineÕ s Day. The raffle was sponsored by the school PBIS — Positive Behavior Intervention Services Ñ and College For Every Student programs. Jessica Sprague, a seventh grade student, said she feels good about helping others during the holidays. Ò I just wanted to help kids who need gifts,Ó she said. Ò I know they will be excited. I feel good about it.Ó The elementary students receiving the gifts were selected by school staff. The program was completely confidential — and a surprise. Ò Families donÕ t know weÕ re coming,Ó Grey said. Ò We just show up, knock on the door and leave the presents. Ò We know this is an important programÓ she said. Ò Some kids wouldnÕ t have Christmas without these gifts. Sometimes the parents cry.Ó Grey and Samantha Wells, the school guidance counselor, purchased the gifts at the Ticonderoga Walmart, which provided the presents at a discount.

Students garner prizes for calendar sales Proceeds to assist whale watch trips, Ti celebration By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ A pair of Ticonderoga Middle School students earned a Christmas bonus of sorts this holiday season. Caitlin Myers and Carson Reeves, seventh grade students, were the top sales people in a promotion sponsored by the First 250 Years Committee of Ticonderoga. The committee is charged with planning the community’s 250th anniversary celebration in 2014. Ti Middle School and St. MaryÕ s School students have been selling 2014 “Ticonderoga: The First 250 Years” calendars. Students earned $2 for each calendar sold for their respective whale watch trips and the remaining proceeds went to the First 250 committee to help finance this summer’s events. Ò WeÕ re very pleased the students could help us,Ó Bob Dedrick, a committee member, said. Ò This is a real win-win project.Ó Myers was the top seller. She received a $100 gift card from Walmart. Reeves was second. He received a $50 gift card from DunkinÕ Donuts. The money, while welcome, is not the reason students participated, explained Ti Middle School teacher Kyle Lang. Ò ItÕ s really a community service project,Ó Lang said. Ò The money is great, but we want our students involved in the community. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of an important celebration.Ó Teacher Lori Fox led the sale at St. MaryÕ s. While prizes have been awarded, the sale continues. Ò The seventh graders are selling these as a fund raiser for their whale watch trips to Massachusetts,Ó said June Curtis of the First 250 Years Committee. “Purchasing a calendar from one of these students is a win-win situation, supporting this excellent educational endeavor as well as our committeeÕ s mission. We thank (Ti school superintendent) John McDonald, Jr., Kyle Lang, Lori Fox and the seventh grade classes and everyone in the community for participating.Ó The First 250 Years celebration will be July 19-27 and will include a historical re-enactment at Fort Ticonderoga, lectures, slide shows, a street dance, the presentation of the annual Ticonderoga High School alumni awards, a golf tournament and the annual Ti StreetFest. The actual founding of Ticonderoga is traced to July 24, 1764, when a land grant was awarded to John Stoughton. To mark that day there will be a celebration in Bicentennial Park with children’s activities, food, a concert and fireworks.

Ò Ticonderoga is celebrating the 250th anniversary of its settlement, its quarter millennial, in 2014,” Curtis said. Ò This is the second and last calendar created for the purpose of honoring, celebrating and remembering many of the people, places and things that have been instrumental in the growth of Ticonderoga.

It is time to raise the minimum wage Small change, long-term improvements


ne of our veteran editors wrote an article several years ago describing the extreme hardships a family in Johnsburg was enduring as the parents were working long hours at minimum-wage jobs. Hard-working and committed to their children, the man and wife headed out each day in an effort to provide their family with safe housing and a decent start in life. Yet with burdensome home heating costs and sky-high vehicle fuel and insurance expenses, their minimum-wage earnings were nowhere near covering the basic necessities for their family. To survive, they were forced to depend on a variety of government programs. Since then, the situation is even worse for thousands of families in the Adirondacks who rely on minimum-wage employment for their income. Decent jobs are rare in the central Adirondacks, and we see the result: many local residents, whose families have lived here for generations, are leaving so they can make a respectable living elsewhere. Over the past 30 years the population of core Adirondack communities has declined by 30 percent or more. In 1973, this Denton editor reports, he and his wife both worked for a salary just above minimum wage, or $1.60 per hour, and they were able to pay for not only their housing costs, food, insurance on three vehicles Ñ and their health insurance premiums (only $85 per year full cost for a policy) Ñ they also had cash left over for vacations and non-essential purchases. Now, people earning minimum wage have no such ability. The total cost of a health care plan alone can exceed a minimum-wage workerÕ s entire annual salary. Those working at the 2014 minimum wage rate of $7.25 have far less buying power than workers earning $1.60 per hour in 1973. Since 1970 or so, the average pay of top executives nationally has increased a thousand-fold, while wages for working people havenÕ t even kept up with the rising cost of living. ItÕ s estimated that if the minimum wage had been tied to increases in cost of living over those 40 years, the minimum wage now would be $10.65 per hour. ItÕ s important to note that over these four decades, U.S. labor productivity has risen by at least 125 percent, which would mean that minimum wage workers Ñ if fully compensated for their work — should now be making $22 per hour or more. Some citizens who espouse pure free-market capitalism, oppose raising the minimum wage, citing that it would cause job losses. But studies

show that the opposite is likely to happen, with more earned income circulating in the economy. Such opponents also claim that a higher minimum wage would cause the cost of goods and services to spiral, but studies indicate that the cost of raising the minimum wage to $10.50 — and improving the lives of many millions of Americans Ñ would be a matter of a price increases of a few cents on a $5 product. Raising the minimum wage is also likely to put quite a shot in the economy, as the higher earnings would be spent on more goods and services. A Chicago Federal Reserve Board study indicated that raising the minimum wage to only $9 per hour would boost household spending by $48 billion, which would give the U.S. economy a considerable shot in the arm. A raise of the minimum wage past $10 per hour would boost the income of about 35 million workers, and lift most of them out of poverty. With the resulting financial stability, more families would be able to reclaim a middleclass lifestyle and have more time to engage in community life. Volunteerism and participation in charitable causes would increase, and crime would undoubtedly decrease. With the resulting boost in payroll-tax revenue, both the state and federal government would have substantially higher income tax revenue Ñ and Social Security and Medicare would be far better funded. While a variety of expensive, bureaucratic government programs now exist to subsidize the working poor, it is far more efficient in our national economy for workers to be paid directly a livable wage that reflects the true cost of their work and productivity. Thankfully, a good number of employers in our area understand that paying a decent wage not only exerts a substantial positive impact on their workers’ lives, but it directly benefits their enterprises, including boosted productivity and reduced employee turnover. Take Matt Funicello of Rock Hill Bakehouse for an example. He pays his 35 workers substantially above minimum wage, because he not only understands the benefits, but because he realizes to do so is his ethical responsibility. Recently Funicello testified in Albany on behalf of the federal House Resolution 1346, which would raise the national minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.50, and provide for the rate to be raised as the cost of living increases. We support the proposal and applaud those enterprises in the region that pay a livable wage to their employees. Ñ Denton Publications Editorial Board

Letters to the Editor

New facilities needed To the Times of Ti: Back in November I read an article from the Adirondack Daily Enterprise about the VeteranÕ s Memorial Highway on Whiteface Mountain getting $12 million in repairs. After visiting the mountain this past summer itÕ s surely welcome and needed. I do, however, have to wonder if the state also thought about sanitary facilities on the mountain. As those who have visited already know there are only two facilities, one for women and one for men at the very top of the mountain. It is almost impossible for handicapped people as the facilities are at the very end of the road in a building with narrow corridors and doors! To get to the facilities one must park several hundred yards from where they are located and it is an uphill walk. If this were a private enterprise I am sure the state would not allow this condition to exist. The article showed Gov. Cuomo enjoying the view and I have to wonder if he used the facilities while there! There are facilities for staff on the upper level, but they are locked to the public. Unfortunately, this condition forces many to use the woods along the highway as a place to relieve themselves.

For what is charged to get on the highway there should surely be more toilet facilities open to the public. Perhaps a little bit of the $12 million could be used to construct a few facilities! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

Thankful for help To the Times of Ti: The Willsboro Community Housing Assistance Taskforce Ð Food Shelf and Emergency Fund would like to sincerely thank all of the individuals, organizations, and businesses that helped to supply food for the Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets this 2013 holiday season. Without each and every one of your efforts we would not have been able to provide the assistance needed. Happiest holiday wishes to all! May you have a healthy and happy 2014!

Bigoted cartoon To the Times of Ti: The cartoon published in the 12/20 edition of the Times of Ti was unusually ignorant and stupid. The point of the First Amendment protection of the free exercise of religion is precisely to prevent governmental interference with our religious beliefs. The Obamacare mandate, by curtailing religious freedom, is a threat to ALL religions, which is why the plaintiffs in the suits against the government represent other religions besides Catholicism. I had thought that the long and shameful history of anti-Catholic bigotry had died out in America, but the Valley News, I see, is reviving it. John I. Gardner Essex

LGA offers suggestions for Christmas trees Recycling efforts suggested TICONDEROGA Ñ Looking to recycle your Christmas tree when the holidays are over? The Lake George Association has some ideas. If you want to let the birds benefit from your tree for a bit you might think about staking it in the ground and leaving it out in your backyard for a while Ð after you have replaced the ornaments with some yummy bird feeders of course (think pinecones covered in peanut butter and bird seed or suet cakes). You can then set it aside once all the needles have dropped and it no longer provides good cover for the birds to chip and use as mulch in the spring. You might have heard about recycling Christmas trees by throwing them in lakes and ponds to provide fish habitat. We get a number of questions about this practice every year around this time. While this might be a good idea if you have your own private pond, in the case of a larger public Lake such as Lake

George, we do not suggest that you throw your Christmas tree into the Lake. With a quick Google search, you can find directions for sinking your old Christmas tree with a concrete block and creating ‘artificial habitat’ for fish. Yes, Christmas trees can be re-used to provide vertical structure that would make fish such as panfish and bass happy - however - in regulated waterbodies including Lake George and most other lakes in the area, you would need a permit to do so. Some states have programs where fisheries staff creates artificial reefs using Christmas trees to enhance underwater fish habitat within lakes– New Hampshire is one that is nearby. But this method of Christmas tree recycling is best left to the professionals. Rather than adding your Christmas tree to the lake, if you want to help provide habitat for fish and turtles, leave wood in the lake year-round. Ô In-lakeÕ wood provides important structure for habitat Ð and is often cleared since it looks Ô untidyÕ to homeowners around the shoreline. If it is not in the way of your

usual swimming spot or causing a safety hazard along the shoreline, consider leaving downed trees in the lake as part of a natural shoreline buffer. Once you are ready to take down your tree, find out if your local transfer station accepts Christmas trees for recycling. Or Ð for a Ô DIYÕ approach Ð you can chip up the tree yourself if you have a chipper or if not you can split the trunk to use as firewood or kindling and then lay the branches under acid-loving native shrubs such as blueberries or rhododendrons to use for mulch and weed control. The Lake George Association is a member-supported nonprofit organization. Families, businesses, summer residents and donors support the LGA. Founded in 1885, the Lake George Association is the nationÕ s oldest lake protection organization. The LGA is located on Rt. 9N across from I-87 South Exit 21 in Lake George. For more information the public can call 668-3558 or visit

Ticonderoga From page 1 culminating on the 12th night, which was considered Ò Christmas Day.Ó Hence, the song Ò Twelve Days of ChristmasÓ and the play Ò Twelfth NightÓ by William Shakespeare. In 529, Roman Emperor Justinian named Christmas to be a civic holiday. Work and public business not associated with the celebration of the holiday was strictly forbidden. In 563, a decree from the Council of Braga declared that fasting on Christmas was prohibited and in 567 the Council of Tours elected the 12 days from Dec. 25 to Epiphany to be sacred. As a result, in the Middle Ages Christmas was not one day to take off work and spend with family, but 12 days of celebration. In older times, the Ò Twelfth NightÓ brought great festivities. In some areas of the world, it is still proper to erect a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and leave it up until a week after New Year for this reason.

Moriah From page 1 environmental science classes at nearby Champlain Valley Tech. The expansion project will be unique, Olcott said, because the new building will be constructed by a private contractor with help from CV-TechÕ s building and trades classes. Using student labor, the IDA hopes to finish the building in 2014 and complete the parking lot and landscaping in the spring of 2015. Moriah officials have also joined with the village of Port Henry to apply for a grant to study possible development of the Lake Champlain shoreline. Ò Tim Garrison is very active exploring possibilities along the lake,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò We believe there are opportunities there for growth.Ó Garrison is a Moriah town board member. He is also active in the Moriah Chamber of Commerce and Moriah EDGe group. Ò The purpose of this grant is to take an outside eye on the waterfront as far as uses and development,Ó Garrison said. Ò We would all agree that the waterfront is not being utilized to its fullest potential. ItÕ s is our hopes that this study will present ideas and smart growth development opportunities for our waterfront and our community.Ó Once specific ideas are identified, Garrison said, grants will be sought to complete the projects. Ò In order to obtain any future grant monies for any improvements or possible development, we need to have this study done, then a community discussion and then adopt a plan,Ó Garrison said. Ò When all of this is in place we can work with Mike Masceranas at the county community resource office on obtaining funding for our plan. As with any grants, they are awarded on a points system based on having an adopted plan and needs along with environmental and economic impact.Ó The Moriah Chamber of Commerce, Moriah EDGe and ph7 will assist with the study, he said. Ò This is just one of the areas the town will be working on this year,Ó Garrison said. Ò We will also be doing an infrastructure assessment to determine most immediate needs as far as roads and sidewalks. We will continue improving our community one day and one step at a time.Ó
