WhistlePig maps out expansion efforts Vermont-based distiller will build more storage space in Moriah By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

MORIAH | The WhistlePig Rye Whiskey facility in Moriah is constructing two more buildings this year with two more planned for 2019. The Vermont-based rye whiskeymaker has three warehouses now at the Moriah Business Park off County Route 7. Essex County Industrial Development Agency Co-Director Jody Olcott said the total impact of the Business Park has been very positive since the IDA purchased the raw land in 1995.

“WhistlePig’s future plans which are already approved (are) two additional buildings in 2018 and two additional buildings in 2019 will give them their approved seven buildings,” she said. “The IDA owns an additional 15 acres at the park which we will begin to discuss and develop in 2018.” The WhistlePig Rye Whiskey distillery in Shoreham, Vt. has plans for a warehouse complex with seven 14,000-square-foot bays to store up to 14,000 barrels of whiskey. Olcott said John Sheehan & Sons of Willsboro completed the infrastructure work at the park for WhistlePig, putting in water and sewer lines and paving the access road. “That infrastructure, water, sewer and road, was dedicated to the town at their December meeting,” she said. “We still own and operate the park, besides the road, which was dedicated to the town.” » WhistlePig Cont. on pg. 2

TICONDEROGA | Th e Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce has made several changes to its team for this year. Mark Barber from Burleigh’s Luncheonette and Selena LeMay-Klippel from North Country Community College Ticonderoga Campus have joined the team as the newest chamber board members and Carolyn Ida from International Paper Company has moved up onto the chamber Executive Board. The changes and additions to the chamber Board of Directors were recently approved at the chamber’s annual meeting and strategic planning session. Additional changes included updates to board and staff titles to assist in clarifying roles within the team and

align with how many chambers of commerce are organized, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Matthew Courtright said. The chamber executive director is now president and chief executive officer, the board president is now board chair, and the vice presidents are now vicechairs. In addition, a number of board members terms were renewed. All of the changes and additions were voted on during the annual meeting of the chamber Board of Directors. Courtright said the chamber is proactively seeking to have a board that represents a wide spectrum of businesses types and organizations that are chamber members, including the area’s largest employers, locally owned and operated businesses, non-profits, as well as representation from the communities they serve. Additional board members will be announced later this year. “Join the chamber in welcoming our new board members,” he said. “Each person on our board brings a new perspective and set of skills.

Th e chamber continues to grow in membership, services, programs, and overall as an organization.” The chamber is Ticonderoga’s business and visitor center, he said. “The board helps guide us and participates regularly to make everything the chamber does possible,” Courtright said. “I am proud of what we have accomplished over the last several years and look forward to the future.” He said the chamber board and himself held a strategic planning session to create a draft set of specific goals and objectives for 20182022 that will be fi nalized over the next several board meetings. At the previous planning session held in 2013, the chamber updated its mission, created a vision, created a tag line, and identified key areas of focus. The team is now: staff : Matthew Courtright, president and CEO; Molly Bechard, visitor and member service manager; and Katelyn Chevier, administrative assistant and Farmers Market manager. » TACC Cont. on pg. 8

Access for the disabled takes spotlight as Boreas debate enters next phase

As DEC takes reins, stakeholders gird for debate over access for motorized wheelchairs By Pete DeMola EDITOR

RAY BROOK | The Boreas Pond Tract classification has been approved by the Adirondack Park Agency and is now awaiting the governor’s signature. Stakeholders are preparing to hammer out the details over the final 590 feet of roadway from the Gulf Brook Road barricade to the ponds themselves. At the center of the emerging debate is whether motorized wheelchairs should be granted access. The APA approved classification Alternative 2B on Feb. 2 by a 8-1 vote, and the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s Unit Management Plan (UMP) process will govern precisely what recreational uses will be allowed. Advocacy groups believe the process, which is expected to begin this spring, may be as contentious as the public hearing process itself, which created 24 hours of oral testimony and more 11,000 written public comments in late-2016, a level of engagement the agency has called “astonishing.” “This is where the rubber meets the road,” said North Hudson Town Supervisor Ron Moore.


Stakeholders have long sparred over how long Gulf Brook Road, the seven-mile thoroughfare granting access to the namesake ponds from Blue Ridge Road, should be kept open. The former logging road is barricaded at three miles under the DEC’s interim access plan. Alternative 2B will keep the road open via a Wild Forest corridor up to a tenth of a mile from the ponds. Under the classification, the state agency will be allowed motorized access for maintenance, but the public will not. “The public would not have motorized access for this last tenth of a mile to get to the dam,” said APA Deputy Director of Planning Kathy Regan at a committee meeting on Feb. 1. APA board member Chad Dawson, who cast the lone dissenting vote, repeatedly questioned how the state could balance environmental safeguards while also providing “reasonable access” to the ponds. “There’s certainly plenty of waterbodies in the state of New York that are public and accessible that everybody of all abilities can access,” Dawson said. “There are very few of them that are isolated, that are there for the future.” Everyone wants opportunities, he said. “But everyone can’t have an opportunity to everything.”


Alternative 2B utilizes an area about an eighth of a mile north of the Gulf Brook Road as the Wilderness and Wild Forest boundary, with the division broken out along a north-south axis. The fi rst of two proposed parking lots will be located about three miles into the parcel at the interim access gate.

If approved as recommended, Alternative 2B will keep Boreas Ponds Road open via a Wild Forest corridor to a tenth of a mile from the ponds. Photo provided

With the classification for Boreas Ponds now approved by the Adirondack Park Agency, access for the disabled will play a central role as stakeholders discuss how much of the final 590 feet of road leading up to the ponds will be kept open. File photo

Boreas Ponds Road extends northeast past the Four Corners to an abandoned 50-by 75-square-foot landing that APA staff have indicated may be used for a second disabled-only parking area. “We’ve estimated parking for a few cars, but it depends on if they’re van-accessible or what kind of parking areas there are,” said Regan. Access the Adirondacks, a coalition of sportsmen and local officials, has called for between 6 and 10 spaces in “close proximity of the ponds.” Wheelchairs are allowed anywhere pedestrians are on state land. But Access hopes at least four spaces would fall under the DEC’s CP3 program which grants the agency the authority to issue temporary permits to the disabled for motorized access to certain state lands on a case-by-case basis. Users could then transverse from the lot to put-in spots for canoeing or kayaking. CP3 is prohibited under a Wilderness designation, as is public motor vehicle use by anyone — including the DEC. The program is highly controversial amongst stakeholders. ATVs are among the motor vehicles permitted under the policy. BeWildNY, a coalition of environmental groups, believes CP3 cracks the door open for their usage on the parcel, a claim Access has fervently denied is their intent. Regan acknowledged access to the disabled was a key issue underpinning classification considerations. “Our problem with providing CP3 access to the ponds, or close to the ponds, was that if it was Primitive, it wouldn’t have worked because CP3 only applies to areas in Wild Forest,” she said. Dawson repeatedly sought clarification on the policy and peppered staff with questions. “Does every lake have to be CP3 accessible?” Dawson asked. “Does it have to have universal access? I think it’s a public policy question. We don’t have a lot of direction in the (State Land Master Plan). That’s something we need to discuss and talk about because it shapes how I think about these alternatives.” Other places may be more appropriate for CP3, said Dawson, who said he believed there has already been a “significant compromise” between the stakeholders in the long-running debate, which he called “contrived.” “We’ve sort of got this battle line drawn around this road, and it disturbs me that it’s come down to that as a sort of this philosophical argument,” Dawson said. “There are a lot of places someone can go in the Adirondacks and get motorized access,” he continued. “Let’s just leave one of them alone for present and future generations.” As talk of CP3 repeatedly surfaced, APA board members continually deferred to the upcoming UMP process and batted away speculation as to what uses would or would not be allowed on the newly acquired state land. “This classification here offers possibilities — not certainties — and the UMP is where that would be entertained, including all the controls that would go for controlling access, whether a permit system, or what have you,” said Robert Stegemann, the DEC designee to the APA. APA staff were briefed on CP3 by DEC Americans with

Disabilities Act Coordinator Carol Fraser last January, said APA Chairman Sherman Craig. Craig said he is under the impression that the potential second parking area is “very much” in keeping with what Fraser described as appropriate for universal access and CP3. “I don’t believe that handicap accessibility in one way or another is required for every resource that we’ve purchased,” Craig said. “However this particular one is incredible, so I would have a hard time arguing this was a resource that’s not appropriate for CP3 or universal (access).”


Several local officials perceived Dawson’s comments as insensitive when it comes to offering access for the disabled and elderly to one of the Adirondack Park’s most breathtaking vistas. “Throughout this whole process, in general, there’s been suggestions that there are lots of other places for people to go,” Moore said. “This is an opportunity for people of all abilities to go and see a view they probably can’t see anywhere else in the (Adirondack) Park.” Not all views of the High Peaks from the south are open to the public, said Moore, citing the privately-owned Elk Lake Lodge in North Hudson. Hamilton County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Farber admitted not every destination can accommodate the disabled. The construction of a road to the top of the High Peaks, for instance, would be illogical. “But these issues are never that black or white,” Farber told The Sun. “I find myself personally troubled that we’d consciously make the decision to exclude (the disabled) and not take every position we can to make sure everyone can enjoy this particular pond.” Farber noted the debate revolves around offering accommodation to pre-existing infrastructure. “If we’ve got the opportunity to provide that, why wouldn’t we?” he said. “It’s a human instinct, a reaction that just comes natural to me.”


Craig, the APA chairman, said the agency’s goal has always been to present a range of options, and a main objective was find a way to ensure handicap access will be “reasonably close” to the ponds. “Is it perfect? No, it probably isn’t,” Craig said. “But I do feel comfortable that we allow this to happen for folks with some disabilities.” He said he had faith DEC would find common ground during the UMP process. “I honestly think what we’re doing is providing the possibility for DEC to create a situation where people who truly need special consideration to stand on that dam and look at the High Peaks and accept that value — and I think spiritual value almost,” Craig said. “I am very much willing to have faith that DEC will thread the needle on this universal access. Yes, continue with some CP3. But this is a small area — I’m going to say 4 to 6 cars, that’s my guess.” The UMP process will commence this spring, DEC commissioner Basil Seggos told The Sun last month, with the public comment process unfolding this summer. ■ — To read this article in its entirety, visit

» Waterfront Cont. from pg. 1 A snowstorm forced cancellation of the initial session, and Councilor Luci Carpenter said it’s back on for the former Port Henry Village Hall on Main Street. At a recent Moriah Town Council meeting, Carpenter said the Town Waterfront Development Committee has been meeting to discuss best uses for the town’s two campgrounds on Lake Champlain. The town hired consultant Michael Crane of

Burlington, Vt. using a $75,000 state grant, and he’s recently sent a project status report, she said. “He has been meeting with developers and real state advisers in New York,” Carpenter said. “He’s redone the (development) model with financial modifications.” She said of the three possible developments scenarios in the waterfront plan, they’re settled on one they believe can be accomplished. “The committee recommended scenario number two, which is campground improvements and additions,” Carpenter said.

The Times of Ti Sun | February 17, 2018 • 5

Scenario two is building yurts and cabins and an improved campground for Bulwagga Bay. The first was modest improvements, while the third was attracting a developer to build a waterfront hotel. The yurts and cabins would attract more visitors to the campground, increasing revenue, which is used to offset town property taxes. As the town prepares to reopen its two public campgrounds on Lake Champlain in May, the council rehired managers for the two sites.

Wayne and Ruth Plunkett will manage Bulwagga Bay Campground for $17,300, while Norman and Tammy Wright will run Champ RV Park for $16,500. “They’re both (couples) coming back,” Councilor Paul Salerno said. He said camping usage looks good for this season. “We’ve had requests for six or seven additional campers, in addition to the seasonal campers we had last year,” he said. ■

Reynolds rolls out early endorsements Sayward, Duprey join five county lawmakers in supporting candidate for Essex County sheriff By Pete DeMola EDITOR

ELIZABETHTOWN | A candidate for Essex County sheriff has received early endorsements from a handful of state and local officials. Essex County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy David Reynolds announced endorsements from Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Preston (Wilmington) and four county lawmakers on Monday, including Jim Monty (Lewis), Joe Pete Wilson (Keene), Archie Depo (Jay) and Michael “Ike” Tyler of Westport. The supervisors cited their experience working with Reynolds on law enforcement-related issues, as well as community improvement projects that reinforce the candidate’s “willingness, commitment and eagerness to assist the community,” according to a news release. “He has always been very helpful no matter what the situation was, from borrowing lights for our Christmas celebration to helping with evictions, or traffic control for our many races,” Preston said in a statement. “David was always there for us, and he would be there for you. I support him 100 percent for the position of Essex County sheriff.” Essex County Sheriff Richard Cutting has announced he will not run for a third term and will retire at the end of the year. Reynolds faces a challenge from undersheriff Michael Badger. Reynolds and Badger are both Republicans. If each circulates enough petitions to get on the ballot, they’ll face off in a September primary. Democrats have not announced a candidate. Former state assemblymembers Teresa Sayward and Janet Duprey, both Republicans, have also offered early endorsements of Reynolds, citing his anti-crime and heroin efforts.

Essex County Undersheriff Michael Badger is running against Reynolds for the job. Photo provided “Reynolds knows Essex County and its youth,” Sayward said in a statement. “He has our trust to keep our county safe and healthy from crime and drugs. He’s honest and approachable and is my choice for sheriff of Essex County.” Essex County EMS Coordinator Patty Bashaw has also endorsed Reynolds alongside Bonnie MacLeod, a member of the county’s animal cruelty task force, and Westport Youth Commission Director Ed Mason. Reynolds announced his candidacy last month. “The community leaders, elected officials, Essex County department leader and community members that I have had the pleasure of speaking with have all offered their support, words of encouragement and personal well-wishes,” Reynolds said in a statement. “It has been overwhelming and somewhat humbling to discover the support that people are willing to offer so early in the process.” The Willsboro Republican Committee has “indicated its support” for Reynolds following a meeting held earlier this month, according to the Reynolds campaign. “Reynolds is hoping to receive the Essex County Republican Party endorsement at its April 19 meeting,” said the release. Badger hasn’t sought any endorsements since declaring

his candidacy last December. “You don’t usually seek or publish endorsements from elected officials prior to becoming your committee’s endorsed candidate,” Badger told The Sun. “My concentration is and will continue to be completing the first step in winning the Essex County Republican Committee’s endorsement. It would also be inappropriate to try and influence deputies or corrections officers in our department as it would cause a divide we do not need.” Badger said he’s given a lot of thought to what happens if he doesn’t secure the endorsement. “I’m hoping my 30 years of experience and my approximate 10 years on the Essex County Republican Committee will bode in my favor,” he said. ■

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

It’s what’s inside that counts

It’s hard to watch a newscast, read a newspaper or even hear about current events and attempt By Dan Alexander to make sense of the • PUBLISHER • anger that seems to have altered the general optimism that has always been a part of our country. Our free democratic society is based on the rule of law, but at the heart of those who make the United States of America their home. It’s also about more than the law it’s about what’s in one’s heart. Each of us deals with issues in our unique way, and while we can blame others for many things, at the end of the day, our actions are governed by what’s inside each of us. How we treat others, how we see ourselves and how we choose to conduct our lives in public and private can be based on our life experiences. It doesn’t mean one’s state in life is predetermined, but it can be a good indication of future behavior. First and foremost, it starts with respect. Respect for self, respect for others, respect for property, respect for the beliefs others may hold dear and most important, respect for life itself. I think we all struggle with the actions of those whose belief system is opposite of our own. Yet we all know people whom we don’t agree with completely, but out of respect, you accept them as they are. Varying beliefs are an important component of our melting pot, but to some measure, we must all conform to certain standards. In a democracy, such as we have here in America, our system is designed to be governed by compromise and balanced procedures, to establish a degree of fairness to all. Where our system appears to be falling short these days stems from the fact that our political parties have become so polarized that their ability to work out their differences has spilled over into the public. The result seems to have created this environment of public angst and is fed by the two-party system, special interest money, and a media that prefers to dwell on those differences. We elect people we trust to resolve these issues so that they do not affect public safety nor our stability. If our two-party system refuses to resolve these issues in a reasonable time, perhaps it’s time they are put on notice for new leaders that are more open to compromise. ■

From the Editorial board

Hosting a town hall would be a win-win-win for Stefanik, constituents — and critics Rep. Elise Stefanik faced a tough crowd last May after voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The crowd was angry that day. But she fended off tough questions with ease. And she should do it again. Stefanik’s famous aversion for town halls and unscripted events has become something of an Achilles’ heel for the sophomore lawmaker, who is seeking a third term this fall. The dizzying array of opponents seeking to unseat her in November drape the issue around her neck every chance they can get. And it’s become a war cry for the disgruntled progressive activists who have issued all sorts of hysterical jeers to batter her for perceived slights. While crude and counterproductive, their hostility can at least be understood: People just want a chance to hold their elected officials accountable. To her credit, Stefanik was the first lawmaker to host a town hall-style meeting following last year’s controversial health care vote. She’s held countless events across the district over the past three years, including dozens of meet and greets, telephone conference calls, small group meetings, as well

as numerous appearances where she engages in retail politics with local voters. And you know what? She’s really good at them. Stefanik excels at connecting with people, which makes her aversion to town halls that much more puzzling. She’s a skilled politician, and has empathy and the ability to connect with voters. We’ve always found the lawmaker to be well-versed on the issues and able to speak at length about almost any subject, as well as hold up to questioning. But people still want that old-fashioned town hall setting. Holding these events would be a winwin-win for the lawmaker, her constituents and the seething fraction of the electorate who finds her aversion to be so problematic. But most of all, it will give Stefanik a chance to deflate the conspiracy theories that have unfortunately come to dominate our politics, and retain the narrative as a can-do, attentive lawmaker. Because this avoidance allows critics to rebrand her as aloof and distant, which we’ve found really isn’t the case. Obviously town halls have their drawbacks.


When it comes to Trump, dissent is not treason

To the Editor, The Statue of Liberty holds a torch aloft in her right hand. It symbolizes lighting the way to liberty and freedom and has welcomed countless immigrants to this country. They have come seeking freedom from oppressive governments, economic security, a better way of life. Under Donald Trump, she might as well be holding a stop sign. Just when you think this man can sink no lower, he manages it. Most recently, because the Democrats refused to applaud his State of the Union address, he went on one of his tweet rants. He not only called the Democrats “un-American” but went so far as to tweet, “Somebody said treasonous. Can we call that treason? Why not?” This is his normal ploy. He poses an outrageous statement as a question. His followers take him literally, as he intended them to do. This is a man who wants to be a dictator ruling a totalitarian state. That is the kind of statement we would expect from Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong-un, or Adolph Hitler. Dissent is not treason. Freedom of speech is not treason. Refusal to applaud Donald Trump is not treason. Totalitarian rulers silence the press, silence the opposition. This country should not go down that path. Anne Morse, Warrensburg ■

Stefanik’s Republican colleagues in the House and Senate have faced circus-like atmospheres at similar events. We suspect the lawmaker is nervous about an exchange with a testy activist going viral and being used in a campaign ad. That’s always a possibility. But it comes with the territory, and her colleagues have all come out of similar events unscathed. Moderators and organizers should agree on some terms beforehand. Questions should not be pre-screened, for instance. But GOP lawmakers should not have to answer for every comment and action from a mercurial and controversial president, for instance, who has shown that he’s essentially a RINO and does not represent the sentiments of most Republicans we know. The benefits would far outweigh the risks. It’s obviously ultimately up to her. But until she does so, she’s unnecessarily opening herself up to unwarranted criticism and handing her opponents round after round of ammunition that drowns out her numerous legislative accomplishments. -The Sun Editorial Board ■

United Way thankful for community generosity

To the Editor: Being the 2018 United Way campaign chair has been one of the most gratifying experiences I have ever been a part of. The word generosity has a new meaning for me as well. Since the very first meeting I had with the campaign team and every meeting or presentation since then has been a truly wonderfully humbling experience. I was lucky enough to travel through the three counties and meet some of the most generous and kind people imaginable. I saw firsthand what many of the partner agencies do and how they impact people lives on a daily basis. The motto Live United has become something very personal. I wanted to personally thank everyone who was kind and welcoming. I especially wanted to thank the entire staff of the United Way of the Adirondacks for all their support, they are truly amazing people and my personal heroes. What you all do daily is truly inspiring and again I thank you. There would be no campaign if not for the generosity of so many. Thank you to all the many wonderful donors, businesses and people who allowed us the time to spread the message of the United Way and what we do. Your support is greatly appreciated. I am proud to be associated with such an organization. With the closing of the campaign soon approaching, I am going to ask that if you have not yet made a contribution, would you at least consider doing so? The need is great and with your donation we can do so much. Thank you. Todd McCarthy, Plattsburgh ■

Moriah chamber has Become an official, new leader — again stay connected to Guest Columnists

Renee Anderson elected president following monthlong tenure of predecessor By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

MORIAH | The Moriah Chamber of Commerce has a new president in daycare owner Renee Anderson. Anderson takes over for Linda Smyth, who was elected president in January but resigned because of family commitments. Anderson said she has several ideas for the chamber, including a Flock of Flamingos fundraiser for May. The flocking is a mild practical joke, she said, for which people pay the chamber to stick a cluster of plastic pink flamingos in front of a friend or family member’s home. “You sell a flock for a yard,” she said. “Then they pay you to move it to someone else’s yard. The flock-

ing might be fun.” Willsboro Central School classes did a similar fundraiser, she said, but used toilets on yards. Anderson is the owner of Little Champs Day Care in Port Henry, and had been a chamber vice president. The vice president post will now be open, she said, and chamber members or potential members should contact the chamber before the March 13 meeting if interested. Smyth said she’ll work with Anderson to ensure a smooth transition. “My time constraints require family needs to be a priority,” she said. “I’d like to thank Renee. Our Moriah chamber is growing.” She said she appreciates the trust members had in her to elect her president. Smyth said she just learned that the Lake Placidbased Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism is coming to Moriah and Port Henry to shoot a tourism video that will be available on the web. A similar video was done recently for Westport to boost tourism there. “It’s a good, positive thing for the town,” she said. ■

high school sports By Bob Gardner and Robert Zayas

They don’t make the headlines, their names are not in the box scores and they don’t make the all-star teams, but perhaps the most important individuals in high school sports are the contest officials. These individuals are so important that, in fact, there would be no organized competitive sports at the high school level without the men and women who officiate these contests every day across the country. Subtract the dedicated men and women who officiate high school sports and competitive sports would no longer be organized — they would be chaotic. In some areas, high school officials are retiring faster than new licenses are being issued. And junior varsity, freshmen and middle school games are being postponed — or even canceled — because there are not enough men and women to officiate them. Anyone looking for a unique way to contribute to the local community should consider becoming a licensed high school official. For individuals who played sports in high school, officiating is a great way to stay close to the sport after their playing days have ended. Officiating helps people stay in shape, expands their social and professional network and offers part-time work that is flexible, yet pays. In fact, officiating is a form of community service, but with compensation. Another benefit of officiating is that individuals become role models so that teenagers in the community can learn the life lessons that high school sports teach. Students learn to respect their opponents and the rules of the game and the importance of practicing good sportsmanship thanks, in part, to those men and women who officiate. And the objectivity and integrity that high school officials display is an example that every young person needs to observe firsthand. In short, communities around the country will be stronger because of the life lessons that high school officials help teach the next generation. Officiating is a great way to stay connected to sports and to give back to the local high school and community. We need dedicated men and women to become involved so that high school sports can continue to prosper for years to come. Individuals interested in learning more about becoming a high school official, and even begin the application process, can do so at ■ — Bob Gardner is the executive director of the National Federation of State High School Associations. Robert Zayas is the executive director of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association.

Schroon Lake Lions offer eye tests Schroon Lake Lions are helping kids By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

SCHROON LAKE | The Schroon Lake Lions Club is continuing to offer free eye screenings for pre-K and Kindergarten children in local elementary schools. “(It’s) a program the Schroon Lake Lions Club does every year, that screens children for eye problems before they become perma-

nent,” Lions member Dennis D’Amico said. The program is called Lion SEE (Screening Eyes Early) and is in partnership with KidSight USA. So far this year the club has screened more 200 students, with 10 percent needing additional follow-up, he said. “Our goal is to reach out to parents, schools and caregivers emphasizing the importance of early identification of potential vision problems and refer those that need further evaluation to an eye care professional,” D’Amico said. “Our state of the art equipment can screen for six different risk factors that may

From the sidelines

It’s gonna happen Sooner or later, that day will come. It’s the day you have told yourself for the majority of your life — at By Keith Lobdell least from early teens • SPORTS EDITOR • until the day it happens — will never come. There is no way you would ever lower yourself so low, get so desperate or find no other way of doing what you are about to do, until it happens. And, more importantly, until you know you just did it. Case in point: Let’s say I am talking to a child. We’ll say “X” to conceal his identity. The topic: Grades, a very normal topic in a very normal household because, at times, they can fluctuate some, leading to discussions about how to bring them back up where you as a parent feel they belong. So the conversation goes on, and you get the typical, “Hey, I’m passing, aren’t I?” Wait, the grammar is too good there. So the conversation goes on, and you get the typical, “Hey, I’m passing, right?” — which is event better — or, “Why are you acting like I am failing?” Great question, and one that deserves and honest, pure and well

thought out explanation. At first, you think nothing of what you are about to say. “Because you are not... Then you start to relive the same exact moment in your head. Except, in your head, those words are not coming out of your mouth, but directed at you: “...trying.” Now, you’re almost reliving it. You can see yourself sitting on the bed, or dining room table, or, in my case, too many other places to count. And that voice is of... your mother. “As hard as you should be.” Please, no! Don’t say the next line. “If you were trying, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.” Now it’s just spewing out, and you can’ control it. “We don’t want you to just do enough, we want you to always do your best.” You’ve done it, you have broken the solemnest vow of solemn vows you made in your adolescence, and you feel shame and remorse and like you need to take a shower. And yet, you gasp in amazement, knowing it had to be said. You’ve said the exact same thing your parents said to you in your foibles of youth, adding that you, in turn, would say the same thing to your kids some day. Now, you have. ■

lead to amblyopia and hopefully be corrected through early detection.” He said the procedure is simple and nonintrusive, and no equipment touches a child. “According to educational experts, 80 percent of learning is visual,” D’Amico said. “So if a child can’t see well, they can’t learn well. Yet most young children don’t get their vision screened until they have problems learning

or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late.” He said unless vision problems are detected early, they risk becoming permanent by age 7. “With this in mind, we will continue to reach out to schools and other organizations in order to screen as many young children as possible,” D’Amico said. ■

British return to Fort Ticonderoga Fort Ticonderoga will recreate a 1775 garrison By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | A British garrison from 1775 is marching to Fort Ticonderoga on Saturday, Feb. 17. The one-day living history event will reveal British garrison life in February 1775, three months before Ticonderoga was pulled into the American War of Independence, fort officials said. “This living history event will highlight the story of the people that provided the peacetime services and efforts to prepare Ticonderoga for war once again in 1775,” said Beth Hill, president and chief executive officer of Fort Ticonderoga. “Our commitment to bringing the dramatic and real story of our past to life through unforgettable programs such as the 1775 British Garrison at Fort Ticonderoga is an opportunity to share with our visitors the importance of this place in

the founding of America.” Living history demonstrations by reenactors during the day will feature the weapons, tactics, trades, and people during peacetime at the fort. Hill said highlighted programming covers the routine of soldiers in the 26th Foot and their wives and families who made their homes inside Fort Ticonderoga’s barracks. “Weapons demonstrations allow you to go beyond loading and firing to discuss what military traditions remained and what tactical innovations were standard on the eve of the Revolutionary War,” she said. “(You can) tour through the reconstructed Fort Ticonderoga and see what made this much-vaunted fortification so vulnerable to be captured by the Green Mountain Boys in the spring of 1775.” Admission to the event is $12 for the general public and free to Fort Ticonderoga members, Ambassador Pass holders, and children age four and under.

Snowmobilers want gates down Ticonderoga has alleged town roads that are blocked By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | The Ticonderoga Town Council is looking into possible improper gates blocking remote town roads. Councilor Wayne Taylor said the Adirondack Trail Riders snowmobile club has contacted the Town Highway Com-

mittee about gates that block their activities. “(They are) requesting that gates that currently restrict their snowmobile travel in and about the town be removed,” Taylor said at a recent meeting. “They contend they are barricading town roads. I told them they would have to obtain more documentation, but we would help them as much as we could.” He said he filled them in on the town’s past history with gates placed by nearby landowners on what were believed to be town highways. Several years ago, the town lost a lawsuit over a gate placed on a road the town contended was a public road, and that encouraged some other landowners to try the same thing. “They traverse the Lyme Timber leases,” Taylor said of the

new gates. “There is a map in the Town Justice Court in Schroon that shows these roads as being town roads, with homes situated along the roads. We’re going to continue to work on that.” Lyme Timber owns timberlands in the Adirondacks that were formerly owned by International Paper Woodlands Division. The holdings are used to harvest trees for International Paper’s Ticonderoga mill. Lyme sells leases to hunting clubs on some of its holdings. Taylor said he’s talked with Adirondack Trail Riders President Jon Cook about the situation and will report back. There are town barriers on Burmbaugh Road, and Taylor said the Highway Department will work with the Trail Riders on removing those seasonally. ■

Ticonderoga graduate teaches robotics Brody Rocque is returning to lead a workshop By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

ESSEX | Ticonderoga Central School graduate Brody Rocque, who now attends the United States Military Academy at West Point, will return to the North Country to co-lead a robotics workshop for middle school students.

The event is in partnership with College for Every Student Brilliant Pathways and the West Point Center for Leadership and Diversity in STEM. The workshop is Thursday and Friday, Feb. 15-16, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the CFES Center, 2303 Main St., Essex. Rocque was a three-sport athlete at Ticonderoga, graduating in 2016, and excelling in football, basketball, and baseball. CFES fellow Anna Garson said he was a leader and a role model at Ticonderoga, garnering various athletic and academic accolades.

Have fun with melting ice in Moriah Moriah Booster Club has Roe Pond fundraiser By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

MORIAH | The Moriah Booster Club is hosting its first-ever Viking Ice Breaker as a fundraiser to break winter doldrums. With the help of local contractor Adirondack Concrete, the Booster Club was able to erect a large concrete “V” and place it on

Roe Pond in Witherbee over the past week. The idea of the fundraiser is to guess when the “V” will fall into the meting ice on the pond as temperatures moderate. The closest guess wins $500. The “V” will be monitored by web camera to ensure the exact time and date are recorded. “The Booster Club members are now actively selling tickets for $5 each to individuals interested in wagering a guess on the time and date the ‘V’ will drop into Roe Pond when the ice melts,” Booster Club President Tammy Malbon said. She noted that the Booster Club has been actively seeking different fundraising ideas and

they thought utilizing the frozen local pond and winter ice for the fundraising was very creative. “Supervisor (Thomas) Scozzafava and the Town of Moriah were very receptive to using Roe Pond and we are grateful,” she said. “We have seen other communities raise significant funds for projects through similar ideas and we are hopeful that people will be interested in making a guess with the opportunity to win the $500 prize.” Malbon said the Moriah Booster Club has been extremely active in supporting all the Moriah Central School athletic programs over the past several years. “As with any small rural school the Booster

Club has been working hard to ensure our athletes have the equipment and gear needed to compete,” she said. “The Booster Club has raised funds in the past years to purchase everything from additional football helmets, swim uniforms and basketball and baseball uniforms. Last year we were fortunate to have great success from a lot of programs and the Booster Club is grateful to be able to encourage and support them.” Individuals interested in purchasing tickets for the 1st-annual Viking Ice Breaker can contact a Moriah Booster Club member, or go the school main office, and Moriah Central School winter athletes will also have tickets to sell. ■

Chiefs, Lady Hornets win indoor titles By Keith Lobdell SPORTS EDITOR

PLATTSBURGH | While it was business as usual for the Saranac boy’s indoor track and field team Feb. 10, the Plattsburgh High Lady Hornets went from contender to belt holder, edging the Lady Chiefs by a slim 9.5 points to win the Section VII championship at the PSUC Fieldhouse. The Hornets got three wins from Sue Sivakumaran (300, 55 sprint and long jump) while other schools kept the Lady Chiefs away from the top of the podium in several sports,

giving the Lady Hornets the edge they would need. Grace Clark scored the win in the 55 hurdles, while Saranac’s Rachael Woodruff was a triple winner in the 1,000, 1,500 and 600. Lea DeJordy of Seton Catholic was the winner in the 3,000, while the Peru relay tams took two events and PHS one. On the field, Ticonderoga’s Meg McDonald earned the high jump title yet again, beating out Peru’s Ella Messner by an inch. Messner came back with a win in the triple jump, while Kat Furman of Saranac won the shot put.


Duffield opened the scoring for the Chiefs with a win in the 55 hurdles before scoring wins in the long jump and triple jump. For Biasi, all three wins came on the track in the 300, 55 sprint and as a member of the 1,600 relay. The Chiefs and Saranac Lake split the other two relay events. Saranac’s winning ways continued with Andrew LePage in the 1,600. Saranac Lake’s Tyler Martin won the 600, while Caleb Moore scored a win in the 3,200 and Jason Moore of PHS won in the high jump. ■

NYSPHSAA moves impact local teams

baseball and softball will be defined as a school with BEDS numbers at 149 or below. Meanwhile, Class C schools would be made up of schools between 150 and 269 students grades 9-12; Class B 270-499; Class A 500964; and Class AA 965 and up. Statewide, the numbers would lead to 162 Class D schools, 171 Class C, 169 Class B, 169 Class A and 107 Class AA. The proposal was presented to the committee by Section X.


In a change from tradition baseball, the Executive Committee also approved a mercy rule in baseball, based on section and league approval. Under the rule, a game will be ended if there is a run differential of 10 runs or more after five innings (or bottom of fourth if home team is leading). The rule is set for two years as an experiment and will start this baseball season. Westport coach Don Markwica said his Due to a change in the accounting of BEDS numbers, Moriah Central School will move from Class D to Class C in boy’s and girl’s soccer, boy’s and girl’s basketball, baseball and softball starting next fall. The Vikings boy’s basketball team is currently seeking their fifth Class D Final Four and second straight state title, while the Lady VIkings are seeking their second straight trip to the Class D Final Four. Photos by JIll Lobdell By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

LATHAM | If the Moriah Vikings capture another state championship this year, they will not be able to defend it — at least not at the Class D level. According to new numbers released and

approved by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s Executive Committee, the BEDS numbers regarding school classifications will be lowered for Class D, bumping Moriah up to a Class C school. Lake Placid would also be moved entirely into Class C. This season, the Lake Placid girl’s soccer boy’s and girl’s basketball, and baseball teams played as a Class

D. The Boy’s soccer team claimed their fifth straight Section VII/Class C title, while the combined Lake Placid/Keene softball team played up as a Class C. Moriah football would remain as a Class D program, keeping the Class D rivalry between with Vikings and Ticonderoga alive. Starting with fall sports, Class D in boy’s and girl’s soccer, boy’s and girl’s basketball,

mind had changed about a mercy rule in baseball because of last year’s pitch county implementation. “We had a game where we were down 11 runs and came back to win,” Markwica said. “But, with the new pitch count rule, you have to be so careful with your pitchers it may be good not to run them out there in a blowout.” ■

‘Truly transparent town hall’ planned for Dems seeking to unseat Stefanik Emerging field of contenders will meet Saturday at SUNY Plattsburgh By Pete DeMola EDITOR

PLATTSBURGH | Candidates running for New York’s 21st Congressional District will face off in a forum this weekend. “The People’s Forum: A Truly Transparent Town Hall” will be held at the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium at SUNY Plattsburgh’s Hawkins Hall on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m. The forum is the second grassroots event for congressional hopefuls seeking to bump off Rep. Elise Stefanik (RWillsboro) to be held this year following a panel last month in South Glens Falls. The group Change Through Action and SUNY Plattsburgh’s Institute for Ethics in Public Life and the Center for Community Engagement are branding the event as nonpartisan candidate forum open to all. The mission is to “provide a truly engaging, educational and authentic town hall-style dialogue between the people of the district and the district’s 2018 congressional candidates,” the group said in a statement. Julia Devine (Center for Community Engagement) and Dr. Jonathan Slater (Institute for Ethics in Public Life) will moderate. “All questions will come directly from audience members with questions being chosen via lottery and not pre-screened or pre-selected in any way,” said organizers in a press release. Past affairs have focused on candidates introducing themselves to voters and criticizing Stefanik — not necessarily going after each other. But that may change as nine candidates seek to distinguish themselves from the pack, which shows no signs of winnowing ahead of the April 12 deadline to file petitions

to get on the ballot.


Local Democrats aren’t making endorsements. “We made a decision as a committee to not make an endorsement of a candidate,” said Clinton County Democratic Committee Chair Sara Rowden. “The feeling was very strong to let this primary play out the Democratic way.” Rowden said the majority of other committees in the 12county district are in the same situation. “I think it’s very positive that there’s this many people interested,” Rowden said. “It’s problematic in a way, but exciting so many people are running for this position, which has not been this way in the past.” Former Rep. John McHugh had only token opponents, Rowden said. A record number of women are running in the 2018 elections, including five in this race, a measure Rowden said is important. Voters who follow politics are paying close attention to the primary, Rowden acknowledged. But there also appears to be a sense of broader engagement amongst the public. “I think last year’s election was a real wake-up call for a lot of people,” Rowden said. A person familiar with Democratic party leadership in Clinton County said the right candidate will strengthen the party while in the process of building their own campaign operation. “We want to see a strong winner emerge from the primary process who has built the party and a strong grassroots operation,” the person said. Stefanik defeated Mike Derrick, a Peru native, in 2016 by 35 points — the largest spread of any federal Republican lawmaker in the state. The nine declared candidates seeking the nomination in 2018 present a mish-mash of professional backgrounds, political experience and fundraising operations. Stefanik raised about $3.1 million in her re-election effort, out-fundraising Derrick by about 3 to 1.

“I think people Clinton County are eager to see a mix of an ability to do the job, and the ability to win,” said the source, who requested anonymity in order to speak candidly. “The people who have a background in one or the other, and ability to demonstrate either, are going to be viewed most favorably.” Each candidate must obtain 1,250 signatures to gain ballot access. Rowden was heartened that all candidates pledged to support the eventual nominee. And she encouraged the candidates — all of whom but one will fall short in clinching the nomination — to use their increased name recognition garnered during their campaigns for a future run for state or local office.


The forum on Feb. 17 will conclude with a straw poll. While scientifically inaccurate, candidates have used them to tout what they have said is frontrunner status. Tedra Cobb, a former St. Lawrence County legislator, claimed a victory after she won the straw poll in South Glens Falls with 23 percent of the 176 participants casting their votes. Patrick Nelson, a political activist, won a straw poll at Clinton Community College last November. Paired with his 17 percent showing last month, he has since billed himself as a frontrunner using a weighted average of the two. Organizers at the South Glens Falls forum said they hoped the event paired with the poll would winnow away the field. It didn’t work: A ninth candidate joined the race later that month. All Democratic candidates have confirmed their attendance for Saturday. Cobb and Nelson join Tanya Boone, Don Boyajian, Sara Idleman, Ronald Kim, Emily Martz, David Mastrianni and Katie Wilson. Russell Finley, who is challenging Stefanik for the Republican nomination, will also attend. Stefanik was invited, but unable to attend, organizers said. ■

Little, Stec introduce ambulance relief legislation Bills would allow counties to form ambulance districts By Pete DeMola EDITOR

ELIZABETHTOWN | Two state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would allow municipalities to create ambulance districts. Local officials say it will alleviate the labor shortage facing emergency squads across the rural Adirondack Park as they struggle to attract emergency medical technicians. “This is where this idea for this piece of legislation originated,” state Sen. Elizabeth Little (R-Queensbury) told Essex County lawmakers on Thursday. Little’s Senate bill joins companion legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury). Local governments have been grappling with plummeting volunteer rates for years, a decline that can be attributed to an aging population paired with increased training requirements that lawmakers and squad leaders have long said is a hurdle to attracting young talent. The statewide average response time for an ambulance is 13 minutes, Little said. But the number is 23 minutes in the North Country. “You never know when someone is going to need an ambulance,” Little said. “It’s not something you plan on.” Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Preston has been one of the most vocal advocates for state action to solve what he has long referred to as a crisis. “It’s critical,” Preston said. “There’s a lot of people that don’t understand. It’s happening every week. They’re dialing 911 and are not getting an ambulance. It’s not right in so many ways.” The bill would also require a report from the commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services to “identify challenges facing volunteer emergency services or personnel.” This legislation, said Stec, “would provide local government the flexibility it needs to meet today’s demand for reliable service.” At present, counties and cities are barred from forming special ambulance districts. Essex County is exploring the creation of a countywide ambulance district to even out coverage. “Twenty-five cents of $1,000 of assessment will fund this program,” Preston said. “It will raise $1.7 million.” Warren County, too, is exploring options, said Little, citing a joint meeting with both counties last October. Services in Essex County are currently provided by a patchwork of local squads, many of whom have been grafted onto local budgets as volunteers have dried up. But the costs are escalating as towns are increasingly taking

on those responsibilities, including Willsboro, Essex and North Hudson, whose budget skyrocketed by 600 percent recently after the town opted to contract with Schroon Lake for EMS services. “We’re paying already for ambulance systems,” said Essex County Vice Chairman Shaun Gillilland. “This system will allow us to replace that patchwork of fire districts and general funds funding it. Every town has a slightly different system, but we’re all still paying.” The ultimate goal, Gillilland said, is “prompt and affordable” coverage countywide. “I think in the long run, the costs are going to do down,” he said. Little and Stec are in the process of garnering support for the proposed legislation amongst their colleagues. Preston said he gave Gov. Andrew Cuomo a fact-sheet prepared by the county’s Emergency Services Coordinator on Tuesday. “I personally put it in the governor’s hand and said, ‘Would you please just read this?’” Preston said. “The governor appeared to me he was listening and said, ‘I’ll talk to Betty (Little).’” “He’s a man of his word,” Preston said. Essex County Manager Dan Palmer said the creation of a special district will allow Essex County to collect fees from properties with tax-exempt status, which amounts to some $2 billion countywide. “We can leverage additional assessed value to lower prop-

erty tax rates,” he said. The proposed bills have the support of the New York State Association of Counties “This truly is shared services amongst towns and the county at your initiative and we really applaud the state legislature for doing this. Not just in the North Country, but for counties across the state it will be a benefit,” said Executive Director Stephen Acquario. “We have to help the men and women out there who are volunteering their services.” The creation and oversight of a possible countywide district would be administered by Essex County, and will not include the creation of a board of commissioners. County lawmakers said they hoped the legislation could be paired with coursework at community colleges and local BOCES programs that would offer EMT training as a career track. “They need to do some studies in regards to this and help us be able to provide EMTs who have all necessary trainings which volunteers find to be just about prohibitive to gain all of the certifications,” said Crown Point Supervisor Charles Harrington. Essex County Emergency Services Coordinator Patty Bashaw said discussions with North Country Community College and BOCES programs in Franklin County have shown promise. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava appeared pleased at the proposals. “I’ve been championing this cause for probably 15 years,” he said. ■

Dorothy J. Henry

SARATOGA SPRINGS / HAGUE | Dorothy J. (Dottie) Henry, 97, passed away on Feb. 10, 2018 in Saratoga Springs. Born Dec. 25, 1920 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, she grew up in Hagerstown, Maryland. She served in the Women’s Army Corps (WACs) during World War II, during which time she met and married Jack Henry of Brooklyn and Hague. The couple settled in Hague in 1946, beginning what would become Dottie’s life-long love affair with Hague. Dottie will be remembered for her energy and enthusiasm for life, her dimpled smile and her service to Hague over the course of more than five decades. When her children were young, she focused her efforts on activities that benefited the children and youth of Hague, including working with friends to bring library books to Hague and helping to start a Brownie and Girl Scout troop as well as the Hague Little League. The family moved to northern Virginia in the 1960s, returning every summer. In 1974, Dottie and Jack moved back to Hague full-time, and Dottie once again became an active member of the community. She served on the Hague Town Board as well as on numerous town advisory committees covering areas such as tourism, sewer, planning and zoning, the town park and festivals. She was an active member of the Hague Historical Society, the Rotary Club, Seniors Club, Hague Baptist Church, Hague Post 1538 American Legion, Carillon Garden Club, New Horizons Literary Club, Ticonderoga Festival Guild and Champlain Valley Chorale. Dottie never passed up an opportunity to help others, volunteering in the physical therapy department of Moses Ludington Hospital and as a mentor in the Ticonderoga schools. But it is not just in death that we honor her. During her life, Dottie won many awards, including being the first recipient of the Hague Chamber of Commerce Senior of the Year for 1990. In 1991, she was honored by the Warren County Council of Senior Citizens for “special service to her community” and in 2002 she was selected as a Woman of Distinction by the Adirondack Council of the Girl Scouts in 2002. In that same year, she was honored by the Town of Hague and the Hague Chronicle with a “Salute to the Life of Dorothy Henry” dinner. One of her most important contributions to Hague was as the long-time volunteer editor and publisher of the Hague Chronicle, which has awarded a scholarship in her name every year since 2007 to a Hague student graduating from Ticonderoga High School. Dottie is survived by her three children, John (Puerto Rico), Ginger (Hague) and Ed (Wyoming); as well as eight grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband John T. (Jack) Henry and her two sisters, Betty and Peggy. A memorial service will be scheduled for early June. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to the FUND for Lake George, the Lake George Association, the Hague Volunteer Fire Department or a charity of your choice. Arrangements are under the direction of the Wilcox & Regan Funeral Home of Ticonderoga. To offer online condolences, please visit ■

Opposition mounts to proposed state tax burden shift Executive proposal to make state land tax exempt has united green groups and local officials in outrage By Pete DeMola EDITOR

ELIZABETHTOWN | Concerns continue to grow by an expanding coalition over an executive budget proposal to use payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreements instead of market value to calculate taxes on land in the Adirondack Park and the Catskills.


Environmental groups joined local officials last week in arguing the measure would shift the burden to local governments and taxpayers. The constant threat of diminished revenue may erode the shaky alliance that has been forged between environmental groups and local governments. “They could stop seeing the Forest Preserve as the financial asset it is,” said Adirondack Council Executive Director Willie Janeway in a statement. “That can lead to local opposition to important state land purchases and political pressure to allow more intensive forms of recreation that cause harm to the Forest Preserve’s forests, waters and wildlife.” The state proposal could also reduce local autonomy. “If the state takes away their legal protections for tax collection in this budget, what’s to stop them from halting the payments entirely in the next budget, or the one after that?” Janeway said. Essex County Real Property Tax Service Director Charli Lewis estimated last week $185,300 would be immediately shifted from the state to local property owners if the proposal took effect immediately, resulting in about an 8.5 percent tax increase. Half of the county’s land is state owned. If all of that is made tax exempt, Essex County could lose an estimated $956 million in taxable value. Dozens of schools districts would also be impacted. Local lawmakers are apoplectic. “This is why I hate the state,” said Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow. “They speak with a forked tongue, they do not practice what they preach. They tell you to do shared services and tell you can’t do what you are already doing. Who do they represent? Not our taxpayers.”


The state is currently required to pay full property taxes

on Forest Preserve. State-owned lands are assessed the same as private holdings: Local assessors work with state officials to determine the state’s tax obligations. The state was paying $75 million per year in property taxes on Forest Preserve lands inside the Adirondack Park in 2010, the last year for which it issued a report, according to the Adirondack Council. The proposal would make all state land tax exempt, and the swap would result in Albany controlling how much it would pay local authorities for the parcels. Locally determined assessments of taxable state land are reviewed by the Office of Real Property Tax Services (ORPTS) annually, a measure the state Division of the Budget argues encumbers agency resources. Under the swap, a formula would be utilized to convert the existing ad valorem tax on state-owned lands into a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) at existing amounts to be increased each year by the allowable levy growth factor for the property tax cap (the lesser of prior year inflation or two percent). Impacts will be more severe in towns with larger tracts of state land, including North Hudson, Newcomb, Minerva, Indian Lake and Long Lake. The annual payments range from $3.7 million in Newcomb, $3.1 million in Long Lake and $2.3 million in Harrietstown, to about $100,000 in lands with smaller holdings, including Chesterfield and Crown Point in Essex County. “Ultimately this would be devastating for local government,” said Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe. This plan will not be voted on separately, but rather as a part of omnibus spending package. The Adirondack Council is calling for the governor to strip the plan from budget in his 30-day amendments. Protect the Adirondacks has also criticized the measure, calling it a “radical change to a core part of the Park’s civic infrastructure, a breach of faith for all who believe in the Adirondack Park and want to see it succeed.”


The state Division of the Budget is punching back against the criticisms. “The goal of this budget proposal is not to reduce property tax payments on forest preserve lands – in fact, it increases the state’s payments,” said Morris Peters, a spokesman for the state budget division. Peters told The Sun the goal is to achieve “administrative efficiencies” within ORPTS. “Under this proposal, the state’s payments would actually grow each year, commensurate with the growth of the state-

wide allowable levy limit,” Peters said. “The savings comes from releasing ORPTS of the responsibility of reviewing local assessment determinations, which is a time-consuming undertaking. Instead, the most recent assessment would become the base level and the amount would be inflated each year.” In theory, the proposed changes would bring savings through administrative efficiencies and staffing reductions, said Peter Bauer, executive director of Protect the Adirondacks. And since assessments on state lands would not be necessary, some localities would be spared “significant resources.” But, he said, the proposal needs further study. “This plan was rolled out without analysis, projections, or details about all impacted programs,” said Bauer in a statement. “There are real questions about long-term impacts from a possible shortchanging on Forest Preserve assessments, slowing in the growth of state tax payments on the Forest Preserve, and a tax shift to private lands.”


State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) said the shift has been previously discussed by past administrations — but were always defeated. “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” she said. Gov. George Pataki proposed the state begin making PILOT payments of $10 an acre on all state lands in 1997, she said. But Albany didn’t take into consideration the payments routinely exceeded that amount. “That went down quickly,” Little told the Essex County Board of Supervisors last week. Monroe said: “We fought that quite vigorously.” Little and state Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury) are opposed to the proposal, and encouraged lawmakers to contact the governor’s office to share their concerns. “In the Senate one-house bill, we’re rejecting that,” Little said. “(Payments) could go up in the short term, but there’s too many unknowns in the long term. I wouldn’t vote on it, and we’re trying to eliminate it.” Stec said its inclusion in the budget proposal could be a result of a “communication issue.” “But now it’s in governor’s budget, so it’s real,” Stec said. “It needs to be dealt with and can’t be ignored. “I’m sure that in the budget process, we’re going to be doing everything we can to make sure it gets out of there.” Towns and counties across the Adirondacks are working to pass resolutions opposing the plan. The governor submitted his executive budget proposal on Jan. 16. “We are working with the legislature towards enactment in advance of the April 1 beginning of the fiscal year,” Peters said. ■

Pursuant to the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (“LT2ESWTR”), on or before October 1, 2014, the Town of Ticonderoga was required to provide water treatment for the Gooseneck Reservoir source to inactivate Cryptosporidium. The Town of Ticonderoga has been engaged in a process to provide such treatment and/or provide an alternative source of water. As of October 1, 2014, that process has not been completed. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an order dated October 3, 2014 requiring the Town of Ticonderoga to meet these treatment requirements. The Town of Ticonderoga is actively pursuing construction of a groundwater source and improvements to the Towns water system. The groundwater source is expected to be completed by December of 2019. For Eagle Lake and Chilson area users, an evaluation and report are expected to be completed by June of 2021, with completion of improvements by June of 2025. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Town of Ticonderoga Water Department at 518-585-6144, or logging on to the Town of Ticonderoga Water and Sewer webpage at: Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
