Ti slaughterhouse is for sale By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | Interested in a ready-to-run animal slaughterhouse? The Adirondack Meat Company in Ticonderoga is on the market for $1.7 million. The 8,950-square-foot building was constructed for an announced price of $1.4 million at 30 Commerce Drive in Ticonderoga Commerce Park in 2013. It closed last year and is no longer taking animals. Owners Peter and Denise Ward could not be reached for comment. The plant is listed with Howard Hanna real estate of Saratoga Springs. The ad reads: “Fully custom functioning slaughterhouse and meat processing plant. Th is state of the art USDAcertified facility, complete recertification with Silliker and Merieux NutraSciences. A third-party auditor focusing on good manufacturing processes (GMPS) and animal welfare clients like Whole Foods Markets require.” Financing for the plant used a $900,000 loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, along with several state grants. » Slaughterhouse Cont. on pg. 2

Experts meet on algae issue Toxic blooms in Lake Champlain probed at summit By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | The recent North Country Algal Blooms Summit in Ticonderoga was part of a $65 million initiative to understand and prevent the growth of summer algae blooms. Many North Country beaches are closed to swimming each summer as toxic blue-green algae blooms are reported. The cyanobacteria is poisonous to pets and harmful to humans and fish. Scott Kishbaugh of the state

Department of Environmental Conservation said people shouldn’t expect immediate action to fight algae blooms. “Many of these mitigation actions take a long time to be fully implemented,” Kishbaugh said. “There’s a need for gathering information to help evaluate mitigation strategies.” He said use of phosphorus-neutralizing chemicals like alum is part of the state’s evaluations to fi nd mitigation tools, but DEC will probably look at other means. DEC Region 5 Director Robert Stegemann said the end result of the summits will be to aid creation of a mitigation action plan. “Th at will be out in a few weeks for public comment,” he said. “Th is issue of working together and talking to one another is the way we’re going to get there.” The increasing frequency and duration of harmful algal blooms threaten drinking water quality and the recreational use of lakes essential to upstate tourism, said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. » Algae Cont. on pg. 7

» Slaughterhouse Cont. from pg. 1 The primary lender was Glens Falls National Bank, which is currently seeking to foreclose on the loan it made to the plant. Essex County Industrial Development Agency Co-Director Jody Olcott said the IDA is involved only through the equipment money it pledged. “Glens Falls National Bank has started their loan default, so they are really the lead agency on this, and the IDA, which used funds to secure equipment, is listed in default, and we will go through that process,” she said. The Ticonderoga Town Council was told recently by the town Building Codes Department that water has been turned off to the building, and future operations can not be restarted without mandatory town inspections and permits. The Ticonderoga facility included a retail shop for the sale of processed and packaged meat, and branded finished products with the Adirondack Meat Company label. It was hailed as a much-needed meat processing plant for the North Country, and was the first USDA-certified processing facility in the Adirondack Park. The slaughterhouse was desperately needed by beef producers in the region, officials said, and the meat processing plant killed, processed, and returned packaged products

With Boreas signed, stakeholders pivot to UMP

Gov. Andrew Cuomo formally approved the classification for Boreas Ponds on March 20, paving the way for the state Department of Environmental Conservation to determine how the visitors can recreate on the tracts. File photo

DEC to host public hearing on April 3 at Newcomb Central By Pete DeMola EDITOR

NORTH HUDSON | Gov. Andrew Cuomo has formally approved the Boreas Pond classification, calling the state’s recent acquisition a “national treasure” as he signed the deal recommended by the Adirondack Park Agency last month. “I am proud to approve this classification package that strikes the right balance between preservation and access, and I encourage visitors from around the world to explore and enjoy the Adirondack Park,” Cuomo said in a statement. The land is now open to the public under an interim access plan. The next stage of the process will be handed off to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, who is tasked with drafting a permanent Unit Management Plan (UMP) that will determine the precise recreational usage allowed on the 20,543 acre tract. A public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 3 at 6 p.m. at Newcomb Central School. Local governments and green groups have largely viewed the classification, which has been split between Wilderness and Wild Forest sectors, as a compromise. But discussion over how to access the final stretch of roadway leading up the namesake ponds — located about seven miles inland from Blue Ridge Road — is expected to dominate the upcoming discussions. BeWildNY, a coalition of environmental groups, said the DEC has offered assurances that it will adopt “graduated access” to Boreas Ponds in which parking for the general public would remain in its current location 3.5 miles away from the namesake waterbodies. “People with canoes and kayaks could bring them closer to the Boreas River, near LaBier Flow, a mile or so south of the ponds,” said BeWildNY in a statement. “A ranger

at LaBier Flow would operate a gate to allow persons with disabilities to access a final six-car lot about 530 feet from the outflow dam to the ponds.” The joint statement by Adirondack Council’s William Janeway and Adirondack Mountain Club’s Neil Woodworth called for no vehicles to be allowed beyond that point, and roadside parking would be ideally be banned (with some exceptions for big game hunting season). Access the Adirondacks said they don’t have a problem with maintaining a large parking lot at 3.5 miles. “But I would hope for additional parking at LaBier Flow or Four Corners or both,” said North Hudson Supervisor Ron Moore. “Beyond that parking lot, we hope to see parking for the handicapped.” Access will not support a gate at LaBier Flow. “That’s all going to get hammered out in the UMP process, but I would personally be opposed to any gates there,” Moore said. “We’re hopeful that the parking lot would not just be for the handicapped, but for a few universal access spaces as well.” Adirondack Wilderness Advocates (AWA) did not support the classification, and would have preferred the entirety of the tract be classified as Wilderness. The coalition would now like to see the general parking area stay at the present interim gate, and would be opposed to a possible UMP that would allow recreationalists to park in one place, drop their gear off and drive back. “We would like to see the general public parking stay at the interim gate where it right now,” said Brendan Wiltse, a co-founder. The classification allows for a snowmobile connector trail at the southern end of the parcel. AWA wants the DEC to consider an alternative where snowmobile use stays as far south as possible, a measure that may be possible with the passage of the land bank amendment last year allowing localities to access small parcels of state land without having to amend the state constitution each time. “Is there a way to put a trail along the Blue Ridge Road for certain sections so that motorized use is consolidated and leaves Gulf Brook Road open for people to cross country ski?” Wiltse told The Sun.

DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos has said he hopes the UMP process will be expedient. “We want it to move along quickly so that hopefully we can break ground on some of the amenities this year,” Seggos told The Sun in January. Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury) said he’ll be following the process closely. “I just hope it won’t take forever to get the UMP done,” Stec told The Sun. Altogether, the DEC is amending UMPs for the High Peaks Wilderness Complex and the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forests to address more than 95,872 acres of Forest Preserve lands classified and added to the two units after their respective UMPs were finalized. Joining Boreas is the Casey Brook Tract, MacIntyre East Tract, MacIntyre West Tract, the lands formerly owned by National Lead, the former Dix Mountain Wilderness lands and other tracts located in Keene, Newcomb and North Hudson. The newly-acquired lands are now part of the High Peaks Wilderness Area, making it the third largest east of the Mississippi River. Th e public is encouraged to attend the meeting on April 3 or provide written comments before the close of business April 20. Comments indicating which unit is being referenced for the newly classified lands and waters may emailed to R5.UMP@dec.ny.gov. ■

Narnia & The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Many children, teens and adults, have been thrilled with the great adventures found in C.S. Lewis' classic The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe and the other six books in the Chronicles of Namia. Some really adventurous readers then read Lewis's The Space Trilogy. It is the first book, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, however, that people have found most memorable and thrilling. Why? I believe it's because it is more than a children's story. It is a story that is so big that it encompasses the history of the world, "His story". It's the thrilling account of how the Creator of a world gone bad goes about rescuing it from the evil clutches of a powerful being named the White Witch. This witch has declared Narnia a land where it is always winter ... but never Christmas. Written at the time of World War II while England was going through its 'Darkest Hour' with Hitler conquering all of Europe and on the brink of invading England, Lewis himself was keeping children at his house in the country for safety. While the White Witch could be symbolic of Hitler and Aslan as Churchill and the allies, it is the biblical symbolism that really captivates. As I once told my former British colleague when we taught in S. Korea, "C.S. Lewis wrote the story as an analogy to the biblical account of good and evil, the birth, sacrificial death and resurrection of Messiah to solve the problem of evil after mankind fell into sin not too long after our ancestral grandparents, Adam and Eve, the parents of all living, were created. Somehow the Aslan/Messiah connection had escaped him all those years. It is this analogy, however, which fits best and is why the book is so beloved throughout the times since it was first published. A true story wrapped in a children's tale of the Creator Lion who talks and walks upon Narnia and who eventually sheds His blood, dies and is resurrected to break the curse of sin and death. Based on the true, historical event which is the greatest story ever told, a loving, all powerful, just and yet forgiving, sustaining, providing Creator God makes a world which is perfect and good. He then makes His highest, sentient creations in His own image and gives them free will. Could He have created humans to have to love Him, to never do wrong because they have no choice and to never, therefore suffer bad things? Well of course, but love and obedience from a robotic being programmed to do so is not real love, most would agree. Nor would making humans immune to the consequences of their actions be real. Both the N arnia story and the historical Genesis account read in an almost magical and wonderous way, until evil rears its ugly head, bringing with it consequences resulting in fear, sorrow, pain and death. Can they, will they...overcome evil and its monstrous consequences as it and its effects grow over time? Alas, on their own, mankind falls far short. The Creator, however, in both accounts, is especially known for His love, forgivenenss and provision for his children. Like any good father, He would go to extreme measures to save them ... to redeem them back and free them from the enslavement they have been kept in by the evil one. Of course there are heroes and heroines and even talking animals, prophets and prophesies, but it is the Lion Who is the King and true hero in both stories. Aslan the Lion and Jesus Christ, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Both shed their blood and died for the sins of the world and both were resurrected, conquering sin and death for all who would believe. Some might say, well, that is all well and good, but what proof do you have that the account of Christ is any different than that of Aslan in Narnia? Forensic anthropologists have looked at the evidence and found it to be overwhelming. The fact that there were over 500 witnesses of the resurrected Christ and that most of them refused to deny such even though tortured to death is powerful evidence. For more facts for our faith have a read of the following: Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass M.D. PhD, is a physician, scientist, and Assistant Professor of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine at Washington University in Saint Louis. He recently wrote of his convictions as a scientist and a Christian: I am a scientist. Still, on Easter, I celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead about 2,000 years ago. This event, in first-century Palestine, is the cornerstone of everything. In the same way that trust-like faith in science is connected to evidence, so is the faith I have in the Resurrection. What is the evidence from which grew my trust? A brief and incomplete outline is included here. This evidence is not an answer, but it raises the question. All we need is curiosity. 1. Without the physical Resurrection, two thousand years of history are left begging for explanation, like a movie missing a key scene. No other event in all recorded history has reached so far across national, ethnic, religious, linguistic, cultural, political, and geographic borders. The message spread with unreasonable success across the world. During just the first few centuries, it spread without political or military power, prevailing against the ruthless efforts of dedicated, organized and violent opposition. How did a small band of disempowered Jews in an occupied and insignificant territory of ancient Rome accomplish this unequaled act? What happened so many years ago that reframed all human history? 2. With dates established by radiometric analysis, prophecies from centuries before Jesus' birth predict his life, death, and resurrection. These prophecies include specific details that Jesus and His followers could not control. For example, before the Romans invented crucifixion, Psalms 22:16 described the piercing of Jesus' hands and feet. Is this evidence of an Intelligence outside our time confirming Jesus' authority? 3. Jesus was a real person in history who died. Several manuscripts from multiple sources, including Jewish historians, describe a man named Jesus who lived and was executed. 4. The early accounts of the Resurrection and prophecies predicting it were reliably transmitted through history. As of 2014, more than 66,000 early manuscripts are known, orders of magnitude more than other ancient texts. We see accounts nearly unaltered in the earliest manuscripts. A pattern of consistency emerges. There are variations in the manuscripts, but nothing invalidates the reliability of the Resurrection accounts. 5. Accounts of the Resurrection include inconvenient and unflattering details, that make most sense as attempts to reliably record what had

happened, free from embellishment. They do not fit expectations of a fabricated account. For example, women are the first witnesses of the Resurrection. In a culture that did not admit the testimony of a woman as valid evidence in court, this detail is surprising. Likewise, all the disciples, the leaders of the early Church, flee as cowards when Jesus is taken. 6. After Jesus' violent death, His followers were frightened and scattered. Then, something happened that grew a strong, bold, and confident belief that resisted sustained, murderous opposition. Unlike other movements with executed leaders, once they came back together they did not replace Jesus with one of his family members. Their resistance was entirely non-violent and devoid of political power. Yet they were all suddenly willing to die for what they saw. What changed them? Why was there not evidence at the time to undermine their belief? What convinced them that Jesus was inconceivably greater than his family? 7. More than just a fact about our past, the Resurrection creates a connection to God that is perceived by people from all times, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, personalities, and mental capacities, across the last 2,000 years of history. Its reach includes some of the most famous scientists: Blaise Pascal, Johann Kepler, Robert Boyle, Gregor Mendel, Asa Gray, Michael Faraday, James Maxwell, Santiago Ram"n y Cajal, and Francis Collins. Is this unmatched reach and influence a sign of a living God working his purpose in history? Dr. Swamidass concludes: The question of the Resurrection is more like an opportunity to fall in love than a scientific inquiry. There is evidence, but the Resurrection cannot be studied dispassionately. If Jesus really rose from the dead, it reorders everything. Just like falling in love, it changes our view of the world. The final verdict, for me, is that the Resurrection makes sense through the lens of history. I find the Creator of all that science studies comes to us in this way. The evidence is compelling, but not definitive. Faith in Jesus is reasonable and is certainly not without evidence. -Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass, "Is There Evidence for Easter?

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

Time to get serious

The $1.3 trillion budget passed last week is expected to push our national debt to over $22 trillion, By Dan Alexander and this is only a six• PUBLISHER • month budget. Since 2007, the country has found itself held captive by feuding political gridlock. Nowhere in our history have we consistently seen this much-mismanaged legislation. Instead of working on a realistic budget, both sides claim to be held hostage to giving up a lot just to get a little. It’s long past time to remove the safety net that allows Congress to pass last-minute legislation none have read, and no one knows for sure what’s in it. If the voters expect to see stronger Congressional management of this nation’s spending, then we better get serious about it pretty darn quick. We must demand that the Senate return to a majority rule vote to send legislation to the president’s desk and not regularly stalled without 60 members in favor. We need the line item veto, allowed by many states which provide the elected executive a final opportunity to reject certain aspects of legislation deemed objectionable before signing into law. The president must be the adult in the room who is capable of doing more than thumbs up or down. Votes in favor or opposed as well as presidential vetoes will have significant consequences. Without placing true accountability on lawmaker’s shoulders, they will continue to spend us into oblivion, all to satisfy political partisanship and not the country as a whole. We’ve allowed them to divide into opposing sides. We end that charade by becoming independent thinkers and no longer allowing the parties to play us against each other. Winning or losing will now matter greatly. The result should be passing good legislation that best serves the country and earn the faith we’ve placed in them. Congress will return to seeking solutions instead of playing cat and mouse. The Senate will be forced to take action on legislation passed by Congress, and neither party can play spoiler unless they have the majority of the country behind them. As voters we must vote for the person who we believe can perform as promised regardless of party. Individual votes on ill-conceived legislation will have serious consequence for those who passed it.

Facebook should be raked over coals for data breach — but users should also be held accountable We used to get an endorphin rush from watching likes, follows and shares stream in on social media. We’re old enough to remember when Facebook was used solely as a way to connect with friends and family. But now it’s an all-encompassing nightmare that undermines our democratic ideals, cheapens public discourse and violates our privacy. The latest breach of trust is the emerging Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal. At least 50 million users had their data exposed to an outside researcher ostensibly to gather information on character traits via personality quizzes taken by a smaller subset of users. But the researcher gave that data to a firm called Cambridge Analytica, a company hired by President Donald Trump’s election campaign, who then used the information to try to influence the 2016 election. The largest data breach in the company’s history is just the latest black eye for a tech giant already in the crosshairs as a chief conduit in spreading fake news and Russian propaganda. Facebook has stopped short of labeling the Cambridge Analytica incident a breach. But the social media giant prohibits this type of data to be sold or transferred “to any ad network, data broker or other advertising or monetization-related service,” according to the New York Times, who broke the story earlier this month. Cambridge Analytica did anyway. After coming under heavy fi re by the public, politicians and investors, Facebook has pledged to tighten up their oversight process, auditing apps for potential misuse


Crete Civic Center symbol of lack of lawmaker vision

To the Editor: The City of Plattsburgh has been stuck in a rut for years and will continue to be as long as government personnel and elected officials, with no business sense or vision, run the show. Case in point: The Crete Civic Center, which they have been complaining about for years and even suggested tearing down to use as a parking lot. Th is is a potential source of revenue that has never been taped or explored properly. Have you ever gone to its website to see what events are scheduled?

of data in an effort to protect users. “We have a responsibility to protect your information. If we can’t, we don’t deserve it,” wrote CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a fullpage advertisement taken out in several national newspapers on Sunday. Zuckerberg also said Facebook would continue to tighten data restrictions on third-party developers and give users the tools necessary to disable apps with access to their data. Fair enough. But delete your account. No, seriously. We see no winners here except for the tech companies mining your data. While the phrase is often used as an insult in online culture, we consider neutralizing your Facebook presence to be valid advice. Our privacy continues to be eroded and these social media giants continue to monopolize every facet of our lives, namely through the data companies and marketing firms designed to scrutinize every aspect of our existence through the use of sophisticated algorithms. Keep in mind that the tracking of every like, favorite and share is technically legal, and sharing this info with marketing firms is essentially Facebook’s business model. But at what expense? For years now, the platform has been a dumpster fire of conspiracy theories, image macros and foreign propagandists that far outweighs any collective benefit the platform may have once had, including the opportunity to strengthen our local communities. At what point do we draw the line when it comes to letting outside actors infringe

on our personal privacy — especially when it comes to these foreign powers seeking to prey on our ignorance to undermine confidence in our democratic institutions? Zuckerberg should heed the calls by lawmakers to testify in front of Congress and justify what Facebook is doing to regain user trust and safeguard against further breaches — including those by foreign powers. Facebook should have done a better job of protecting user privacy. But we are also to blame for giving tech firms such a prominent role in our lives with such childlike naivety, taking quizzes and spreading digital rubbish with reckless abandon. Cambridge Analytica exploited a loophole in Facebook API that allowed the firm to collect data not only from the quiz takers themselves, but also from their Facebook friends. We concede the sustainable solution isn’t to ask everyone to delete their social media presence. No one reading this likely will. But it’s probably a good idea to develop a sense of social media fluency and literacy, and reduce your online footprint. Be vigilant — and watch out for hucksters. And we can ask Congress to draft some meaningful legislation to protect our rights as users, particularly as foreign governments continue to probe ways to sow discord in our democratic institutions. If not a catalyst for deleting your account, the scandal should at least serve as a giant alarm bell for users to be more discerning about their habits. — The Sun Editorial Board ■

North Country Ministry plans spring gala

Ministry expands services, adds Pottersville food pantry

NORTH CREEK | North Country Ministry’s annual spring gala will take place Friday, April 20 at the Fort William Henry Hotel and Conference Center in Lake George. The theme of the event is “Live, Love, Lake” and will celebrate the beauty of our Adirondack lakes. North Country Ministry has expanded services in recent months to include a new food pantry in Pottersville, located within the All Brands Redemption Center at the intersection of Route 9 and Valley Farm Road. It is open from 3-6 p.m. on Wednesdays. At its Warrensburg Center, a large anonymous donation was given to North Country Ministry for the specific purpose of building a new service center building. Located on the same lot as the existing building, the new space will be 2,500 square feet, split equally between two floors. The first floor will house the Baby’s Place and Clothing Center programs and the second

floor will have the caseworker’s office as well as administrative offices and a meeting room. The existing building, over 100 years old, will remain in use as much-needed storage space for North Country Ministry’s two food pantries as well as for out-of-season clothes for the Clothing Center and Baby’s Place. Donated infant hard-goods and car seats will also be more effectively stored. The gala raises almost 10 percent of North Country Ministry’s annual budget and supports the programs and services the organization provides in a 650-square-mile area of the southeastern Adirondacks. The evening will include a cocktail hour with a robust silent auction, followed by a served dinner and exciting live auction orchestrated by auctioneer Martin Seelye. Entertainment will be provided by Jonathan Newell. Reservations are required and are accepted on a first-come, first served basis. Tickets are $75 per person. For reservations, contact North Country Ministry’s Warrensburg office at 518-6232829 or download an invitation from the web site to secure reservations by mail: northcountryministry.org The live auction will include Max Yurman

Ticonderoga man arrested for felony DWI, possession of stolen property

TICONDEROGA | On March 12 at approximately 1:30 a.m., New York State Police responded to White Church Road in the Town of Crown Point for a report of a disabled vehicle parked in the center of the roadway. Upon arriving on scene, state troopers located a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado

earrings donated by Frank Adams Jewelers, a wake surfing experience on Lake George, dine for a year package, a decorating spaces room redesign, getaways and many other items. See the website for updated listings. “So many businesses and individuals in the community come together to make this an incredible evening that is not only a great fund-raiser but an opportunity to celebrate the critical work that is being done by the ministry,” said board president Dr. James Morrissey. “I cannot say enough about the large team of volunteers who work for months to put together this wonderful event!” North Country Ministry offers a wide variety of programs and services. It provides baby clothing, diapers, and car seats as well as clothing for the rest of the family and food through two pantries as well as backpack programs and other food initiatives. Two caseworkers provide advocacy and referral services, supportive counseling, and oversee emergency assistance. The gathering place program offers lunch and hospitality, the furniture barn supplies gently used furniture and household goods to those in need, and the adult living units offer affordable efficiency apartments in North Creek. “The gala enables not only our supporters

The doors were locked, but troopers were able to awaken the driver by knocking on the door. The operator was subsequently identified as Jacob T. Sawyer, 21, of Ticonderoga. Sawyer was subsequently arrested for DWI. His blood alcohol content was determined to be .13 percent. When asked about who was the registered owner of the truck, Sawyer stated he did not know. The owner was determined to be an 81-year-old male from Hague. When the man was contacted by New York State Police, he advised he did not know Sawyer and never gave him permission to drive his vehicle. Sawyer was also found to have been previously convicted of DWI in June 2017, in the Town of Ticonderoga. Sawyer was charged with felony DWI, and criminal possession of stolen property. He was further ticketed for various traffic violations. Sawyer was arraigned at the Crown Point Town Court where he was remanded to Essex County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond. The investigation is pending further charges by State Police in Troop G. ■

Work begins on Adirondack Northway welcome center New facility expected to be open this fall

QUEENSBURY | Construction has begun on the Adirondack Welcome Center along the Adirondack Northway (I-87) in Queensbury, Warren County. The state-of-the-art facility, once operational, will support the governor’s commitment to growing regional economies through the state’s booming tourism industry while supporting local businesses and enhancing the state’s agricultural sector. The center is expected to open this fall. “New York’s Adirondack Region is one the state’s great treasures, offering travelers world-class attractions year-round.” Governor Cuomo said. “The new Adirondack Welcome Center will greet millions of people who travel the Northway each year and will serve as the gateway to the beautiful Adirondack Park.”

New York’s tourism industry generates an economic impact of more than $100 billion per year. The Adirondack Welcome Center will serve as a gateway to the Adirondack region and the communities that keep the economy going while highlighting regionally-specific attractions linked to the history and natural beauty of the six million-acre Adirondack Park. The facility will combine two existing structures at the current rest area located just north of the Hudson River. The new 8,615 square-foot, LEED certifiable building will feature a classic Adirondack theme, expanded parking, as well as a boat inspection and washing station for boating enthusiasts to help prevent the spread of invasive species. The center will also feature food and beverages made in New York through vending options under the Taste NY brand, as well as an Adirondacks Walk of Fame.

» Algae Cont. from pg. 1 “Protecting New York’s water quality is a top priority and it is critical that we address the growing threat of harmful algal blooms,” Cuomo said. “By bringing together experts from across the country, we can develop new and innovative strategies to safeguard our water and ensure these beautiful natural resources are safe and clean for future generations.” Cuomo said the summits, like the one at the Ticonderoga Best Western Inn and Suites, support the state’s comprehensive effort to protect vulnerable lakes and water bodies in upstate New York from harmful algal blooms, or HABs. Discussions at the North Country Summit will guide the

A proposed new welcome center along the Adirondack Northway in Warren County is slated for completion this fall. Photo provided I LOVE NY interactive kiosks will showcase locally-based attractions and tourism destinations throughout the Adirondack Park. The facility will also feature an Adirondack floor map and an I LOVE NY selfie wall with a decommissioned ski life chair lift. For family travelers, an outdoor children’s play area, pet comfort area, free Wi-Fi and picnic tables will be available.

development of action plans to maintain the health of Lake George and Lake Champlain. The water bodies are vital lakes that support recreation and provide drinking water. Lessons from these lakes will be applied to other water bodies characterized by shoreline residential development, the prevalence of on-site septic systems, heavy recreational use, upland forested land and agricultural use, and other nutrient inputs. Experts attending the North Country Summit were: Dr. Greg Boyer, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry; Dr. Tim Davis, Bowling Greene State University, Ohio; Sally Flis, The Fertilizer Institute, Washington D.C.;

The Adirondack Welcome Center will also have a number of environmentally-friendly features, including geothermal water source heat pumps for both heating and cooling the building, LED light fi xtures, electric car charging stations, water efficient landscaping, energy efficient windows and doors, and storage and collection of recyclables. Funding for regional welcome centers was included in the fiscal year 2018 state budget. ■

Dr. Eric Howe, Lake Champlain Basin Program; Dr. Dave Matthews, Upstate Freshwater Institute; Dr. Tim Mihuc, SUNY Plattsburgh; and Angela Shambaugh, Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. Senator Betty Little (R-Queensbury) praised the effort to combat algae. “The health of our lakes is paramount to our future and the sooner we understand the cause of the algal blooms the better off we’ll be,” Little said. “Naturally, I am grateful to see a focus on the North Country. We have many experts in the region and an engaged public eager to do their parts to inform effective public policy.” ■

Ham radio featured at school Moriah Central School has own amateur radio base By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

MORIAH | The new Amateur Radio Station at Moriah Central School lets students talk with other schools and individuals around the world. Any student or community member who is interested in public service, law enforcement, emergency services, military or science and technology in general, amateur radio might be something they‘d be interested in, said teacher Matthew Pray, the school’s amateur radio coordinator. “Think of using something like walkie-talkies but on a much bigger possibly worldwide scale,” he said. “Amateur radio operators share stories, and spread international good-

will wherever they are heard, and help local communities during emergencies.” The VTech student group is becoming involved with amateur radio, he said, and four members are taking the ham exam, plus student Connor Anderson is doing his senior project on Amateur radio. “We will soon have our very own radio station, W2MCS, thanks in part to the Champlain Valley Amateur Radio Club,” Pray said.“VTech will allow students to learn and experiment, and encourage students to help each other along the way.” On Monday, April 16, at 11 a.m. in the high school library, the Champlain Valley Amateur Radio Club will be coming to Moriah Central School to give the exam necessary to become a licensed Amateur radio operator. “You need a license to be able to operate these radios by yourself.,” Pray said “It’s not a difficult task to pass the test, but it does involve some studying. I’ve even spoken with a nine-year-old who passed the test, with some effort.”

All resources and test questions and answers, as well as study guides, are available on-line for free. Amateur radio, also called ham radio, is the use of radio frequency spectrum for non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, private recreation, radiosport, contesting, and emergency communications. Also, besides a public service, with amateur radio you can make contacts all around the world, and be a part of a great hobby that spreads international goodwill,” Pray said. “Our school is applying to make contact with the International Space Station for late next year as it flies overhead. It will be a district-wide event if it happens.” Anyone who would like any more information or are thinking of taking the exam, send Matthew Pray an email at mpray@moriahk12.org. “We would like to turn our new project at the school into something that will benefit not only the school, but our local community as well for years to come,” he said. ■

Film festival planned for summer Work on new Moriah events is underway By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

PORT HENRY | New events, including a chili-fest, could enliven the Moriah community, according to one business owner. Shannon Wadsworth of the Adk Emporium in Port Henry said she’s proposing a Street Art Festival for July, a three-day event on dates to be set, along with a Culinary Festival in September and a Chili Cook-Off as a winter event. “These are ideas I believe could work,” she told the Moriah Chamber of Commerce at a recent meeting. “I’d like to get input.” She said she’s also assisting Emporium and Adk Community Works co-owner Joan Cunningham with a new mission called “Sisters at a Crossroads.” The project will include a housing and healing center for domestic violence victims, and a searchable on-line database of those convicted of domestic abuse. The chamber is also working on a summer film festival, possibly featuring some of the pictures staring Port Henry native Tom Tyler, who had a long career in Westerns and other films, from the 1920s through the 1950s. Tyler (1903-1954) is the villain in John Ford’s “Stagecoach,” as well as staring in the Republic serials “The Adventures of Captain Marvel” and “The Phantom.” He played the Mummy in “The Mummy’s Hand.” Born Vincent Markowski, Tyler left for Hollywood in the 1920s, changed his name, and became a prominent actor. Former chamber president Linda Smyth said she was in Hudson and that town had a free film program. “There were outdoor movies,” she said. “It was very popular.

Stefanik targets foreign propaganda with new bill

Stefanik has repeatedly said she supports the Mueller probe. Asked to respond to the president’s sustained attacks on the FBI, Department of Justice and Mueller, a spokesman for the lawmaker said she has “immense respect for the men and women of our law enforcement agencies and the work they do to protect our nation.” “While she does believe that there have been abuses at these agencies, they are only reflective of a few individuals and not the institutions as a whole,” said Tom Flanagin, the spokesman. “She believes any attacks by the president at these institutions as a whole are misguided and unproductive.” Flanagin continued: “(Stefanik) has also been an outspoken supporter of the Mueller investigation and believes it would be a serious mistake if the President were to fire the Special Counsel.”

By Pete DeMola EDITOR

WASHINGTON, D.C. | Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) has introduced legislation designed to combat foreign propaganda spread through government-controlled media. The Countering Foreign Propaganda Act of 2018 will require U.S.-based foreign media outlets to disclose their ownership by filing disclosures to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) every six months. The FCC would then be required to submit reports to Congress detailing that information. The bill also calls for announcements to inform consumers of the foreign government funding the content or programming.



The proposed legislation comes days after the White House imposed a new set of sanctions on Russia for meddling in the 2016 presidential election and waging cyber attacks on U.S. infrastructure. “This legislation is a critical initiative as we work to counter information warfare from adversarial nations, including Russia,” said Stefanik in a statement on Tuesday. “We must ensure transparency and public disclosure from foreign media outlets so that the American public knows where this information is coming from.” Key outlets include the Kremlin-controlled RIA Global LLC, Russia Today and Sputnik International, all of whom have been accused of peddling propaganda. Stefanik, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and chair of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, pledged to continue to play a key role in safeguarding the U.S. from foreign threats and meddling. The bill is co-sponsored by Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), a fellow member of House Armed Services. “Russia attacked our democracy in 2016, France and Germany’s elections in 2017, and is already spreading disinformation ahead of our 2018 elections,” said Moulton in a statement. “Both Russia and China have dramatically expanded efforts within our country to sway public opinion, spread propaganda, and advance their own political goals.” Stefanik, who has taken a keen interest in cyber warfare issues, did not mention China in her remarks. But a second anti-meddling bill introduced on Tuesday by Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina is a direct response to organizations like the Confucius Institute, the Beijing-funded cultural centers designed to promote state ideals that have been sprouting on U.S. campuses throughout the past decade.

A bill co-sponsored by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) on Tuesday aims to force government-controlled media outlets to disclose their status in an effort to safeguard against the spread of propaganda. File photo Critics say those centers are government-controlled and may jeopardize academic independence, promoting Communist propaganda and undermining human rights in the process. The state-run Xinhua and People’s Daily also produce proCommunist Party content marketed towards Americans.


Both pieces of proposed legislation arrive at a time when Russian interference continues to dominate the political landscape, accelerated by increasingly brazen attacks on law enforcement agencies by President Trump, who targeted special counsel Robert Mueller for the first time by name this past weekend. President Trump is sharpening his attacks against special counsel Robert Mueller, who is spearheading an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. “The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime,” wrote Trump on Twitter. “It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!” In a second post, Trump wrote: “Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!”

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee concluded their investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election last week, revealing the yearlong probe has found no evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign. Rep. K. Michael Conaway, who led the investigation, said Republicans agreed that Russia interfered with the election, but stopped short of determining Russians favored Trump’s candidacy over that of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate. But Democrats sharply disagreed, claiming Republicans prematurely ended the investigation, but not before politicizing the investigation and attempting to delegitimize the FBI and DOJ. Some GOP members broke with the findings, including Rep. Trey Gowdy, who said he believed that Russians had particular disdain for Clinton. Stefanik agreed with shuttering the probe, but also said she shares Gowdy’s concerns. “She has seen evidence of Russia actively working to hurt the Clinton campaign in 2016 and there is daylight between her and some other members of the committee on the findings,” Flanagin said. A draft report detailing the committee’s findings is currently undergoing edits and is being reviewed by panel Democrats for their input. A vote on the report is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, said the spokesman, and will include both the majority and minority reports. “Congresswoman Stefanik will support making both reports available to Members of Congress and start the declassification process so that they can be made transparent for the American public,” Flanagin said. ■

Ticonderoga Festival Guild plans full summer season By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | The International Paper Foundation and New York State Council on the Arts have awarded grants to help fund the free children’s programs and summer concerts put on by the Ticonderoga Festival Guild. In 2018, the Festival Guild will deliver a wide variety of performances to area children during the six-week Arts Trek Programs in July and August and during town children’s festivals for Halloween, Christmas, Winter and Spring Health Day. “The Festival Guild is proud be able to deliver fantastic performances to our youth,” said Executive Director Judy Walker. “Our goal is to expose area children to a wide range of programs such as music, stories, dance, theater, magic, juggling and others. We hope to educate, inspire and entertain our audiences at each performance.” International Paper Foundation has consistently supported the Festival Guild’s efforts

The Ticonderoga Festival Guild sponsors several Arts Trek programs for children every summer. to serve area youth, Walker said. “This funding helps ensure all performances can be offered for free,” she said. “The free summer Arts Trek programs are an important element of local summer camp schedules and are attended by Moriah, Crown Point, Westport and Ticonderoga. The Festival Guild is working hard to serve our community and it is terrific to have the support of businesses such as International Paper.” In addition, the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program has awarded a grant to the Ticonderoga Festival Guild. “The Festival Guild is very thankful for this funding since it supports both the children’s programs and the summer concerts,” Walker said. She said that since 2014 the Festival Guild

has operated as a totally volunteer organization, with no paid staff. “This change has enabled the expansion of programming for children and families due to the money saved by operating as a strictly volunteer organization,” Walker said. Even with the cost-cutting changes within the Festival Guild, the organization could not expand without the support of the Decentralization Grant and other grants. Currently the Festival Guild delivers 10 free children’s programs throughout the year as well as programs to area elementary schools. Additionally, the Festival Guild schedules a series of free summer concerts during July and August. The Decentralization Grant will help

Forestry reforms on the table as budget deadline nears Local governments concerned about offering tax breaks to loggers By Pete DeMola EDITOR

ALBANY | Stakeholders are making a final push for reform of a state program to give private forest owners tax breaks and other incentives to broaden sustainable forestry practices in the Adirondacks. The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is a leading advocate of the Empire Forest for the Future Initiative (EFFI). DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos called the initiative “a milestone effort to protect and conserve the state’s vast forest resources held by more than 700,000 forest owners across New York.” “EFFI will provide great benefits to the public,” Seggos said, “including sequestering carbon, reducing the impacts of flooding, preserving wildlife habitat and helping the forest products industry grow sustainably in our state.” The current DEC-managed 480-a program provides tax abatements of up to 80 percent on property taxes for landowners who agree to reserve their land for timber production rather than development. But while 75 percent of the state’s forests are privately held, only 7 percent of eligible landowners participate. The threshold is currently 50 acres, and the reforms would reduce the acreage down to 25 alongside other initiatives, including requiring landowners to draft long-term plans for the parcels to map out work schedules and objectives to maintain forest health and wildlife habitat. Other efforts to boost enrollment in the new 480-b proposal include lessening administrative burdens and expanding eligibility to grant programs. Participants of the current 480-a program would be grandfathered in, but new enrollments would be halted.


As state lawmakers hurdle towards the unofficial March 31 budget deadline, the proposal was included in Senate one-house bill, but not the Assembly version following numerous concerns from stakeholders. Local officials continue to harbor concerns about the proposed elimination of the stumpage tax paid by loggers to localities following a harvest.

Supporters of reforming the state’s Forest Tax Abatement Program say the measure will help bolster the local economy while also safeguarding against climate change. Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) supports reform, but also said local governments should not be forced to pick up another unfunded mandate. Photo provided via Twitter “We don’t think municipalities should be seeing any loss of revenue,” said Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages President Matt Simpson. “Municipalities should be made whole along with schools and counties.” Any little bit of funding helps localities craft their budgets, said North Hudson Supervisor Ron Moore, who oversees a town where 77 percent of the land is state-owned. “To maintain services, we would have to raise taxes,” he said. Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury), ranking member of the Environmental Conservation Committee, said he likes many aspects of the program, but is mindful about the potential of another unfunded mandate. “I’d like to see this happen if it was the state who would cover tax costs,” Stec said. “It is a modest $3 million approximate total cost. Maybe this can get resolved in the negotiation process.” State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) said local governments throughout the state that lose tax revenue each year as a result of the current 480-a program. While the lawmaker was successful in 2004 in getting some money in the budget to help municipalities that were seeing the biggest losses, it wasn’t enough to reimburse everyone. “Not assuring reimbursement could further the financial hardship,” Little said. “The partial funding starting in 2004 was a band-

aid. Now’s the time to do this right.” Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay) met with landowners and local government officials last week. “While the proposal in the executive’s proposed form was not included in the onehouse Assembly budget, I am hopeful that the conference committees can come together and reinstate this language, while simultaneously addressing these concerns,” said Jones. Another sticking point is the proposed legislation would establish a timber harvest notification requiring landowners who intend to harvest to file paperwork with the DEC detailing information about their cut. “We’re concerned about having to notified DEC for cutting on such small parcels,” Simpson said. “I think it’s going to be a regular issue.” Little agrees. “Everyone agrees that if a landowner is enrolled in a program in which they get a tax benefit, then state oversight is appropriate,” said Little, who spoke at the rally last week. “However, there are landowners who don’t want any assistance and don’t want the obligation of reporting to the State of New York.”


The proposal also includes a state procurement preference for New York-grown and manufactured wood products similar to those for food and dairy products.

Environmental groups broadly support the measure, including the Adirondack Council, who has called the current laws “antiquated” and in need of reform for decades. “While not perfect, it contains many elements that conservationists, the forest products industry, private landowners and local officials have sought for a long time,” said Executive Director William Janeway. The Adirondack Council is pushing for local governments to remain financially whole with any reform. “As long as a community’s total assessments under 480-a exceed 1 percent of assessed value in the community, then the state will make up the difference in a state payment to the community,” said John Sheehan, a spokesman for the organization. EFFI would be a “vast improvement” on the current incentives for ecologically responsible commercial forestry and for wildlife conservation on private lands, said the Elizabethtown-based organization. Broadening participation can be done without inadvertently incentivizing substandard forestry practices, questionable recreational development and increases in air pollution. The Adirondack Council wants to work with the DEC to ensure the program will not swing back the other way and indirectly incentivize clear-cutting without a cumulative analysis, and ensuring policies that are not carbon neutral — including too much wood-burning. The group is also mindful of owners of large tracts who may clear their land and tweak the acreage for recreational development, including the construction of roads and camping leases. “The state should have a chance to look at that development plan and approve it before it happens,” said Janeway. “It’s not a subdivision and it’s not a development from the perspective of big houses, but it is an impact on the land that could undermine the open space quality.” The state has until March 31 to hammer out a budget. Jessica Ottney Mahar, policy director for the Nature Conservancy, acknowledged the open questions on harvest notification provisions and on the impact on local governments. But the coalition of supporters is “hopeful” that the legislation will be in the final budget bills, she said. With changes in the federal tax code, landowners are under more pressure than ever to look for areas of tax relief, she said. “There’s a lot of good talk on how to come to agreement, and we’re confident it can be resolved before budget is enacted,” Mahar said. “I think everyone is at the table having those discussions and those issues are not insurmountable.” ■

Obituaries Michael P. Allen WITHERBEE | Michael P. Allen passed away on March 16, 2018 at his home in Witherbee, in the loving arms of his wife Mary Anne and under the care of High Peaks Hospice. He was born 70 years ago in Ticonderoga, the son of Robert L. and Emily (Molly) Allen of Mineville. Mike was a graduate of Moriah Central School and attended Hudson Valley Community College before going to work for International Paper Co. Shortly thereafter, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, where he served a two year tour of duty as a generator operator for the hawk missile sites in Germany. Upon his return, he re-entered the workforce at International Paper and retired with 39 years of service. Michael loved Harleys, fast cars of every kind, Chevrolets and especially his Corvettes. He was also fascinated with airplanes and flying, and obtained his private pilot’s license in 1986. There really wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or build and his greatest building accomplishment was the completion of his log home on Silver Hill, one of the first log homes to be raised in the region. He was always working on a project or two or three in his workshop and had at least one project underway in his garage at all times. Michael is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Mary Anne (Wojciukiewicz) Allen; his brothers Steven (Patricia) Allen and Robert J. (Barbara) Allen; his dearest sister-inlaw Cecelia A. Wojciukiewicz and sister-in-law Katherine (Frank) Puglia; a nephew, Evan (Kearstin) Allen; and three nieces, Erica (Kane) Sleeper, Ashleigh Allen and Tracy (Shawn) Paradise. Arrangements are in the hands of Harland Funeral Home in Port Henry. Calling hours were Thursday, March 22 from 5-7 p.m. at the Harland Funeral Home in Port Henry. A funeral Mass of Christian Burial was held on Friday, March 23 at All Saints Catholic Church in Mineville. There was be a gathering of family and friends at the Mineville VFW, Mineville, directly after the funeral Mass on Friday. Donations in Mike’s memory (in lieu of flowers) may be made to the Mineville/Witherbee Fire Department in Mineville, the Town of Moriah Ambulance Squad in Moriah or the Catholic Community of Moriah, St. Patrick’s Place, Port Henry.

Shirley Ann Johndrow TICONDEROGA | Shirley Ann Johndrow, 83, went to be in the arms of our lord on March 19, 2018, surrounded by her family after a battle with dementia. Blessed with her daughter’s compassionate and loving round-the-clock care, she was able to remain in her John Street home until her very last day. Shirley was born on June 9, 1934, the daughter of the late Lottie and Fred Wells. She married her sweetheart and soul mate, Richard Johndrow, on July 20, 1952. Shortly after, her husband was drafted into the Korean War, where she waited and prayed for his safe return to begin their journey through life together. Shirley worked as a caregiver in her home for many years, taking care of the mentally disabled. She was her husband’s loyal follower through all of his athletic adventures... marathons, triathlons, hunting and skiing — but her passion was shopping. She would tell Richard: “One hand washes the other,” and “oh,” how she would shop not just for herself, but for everyone. She loved family with all her heart and loved to have them visit. She also had a great love for animals, especially her dogs, Willow and Wee Man. Shirley leaves behind her beloved husband of 66 years, Richard Johndrow; one daughter, Victoria Hoffay and husband David; and two sons, Rick Johndrow and wife Kelly, and Shawn Johndrow and girlfriend Jessie. She will be deeply missed by her seven grandchildren, Shannon, Jaimie and Matthew Russell, Samantha and Mike (Alicia) Fish, and Sophia and Shaylee Johndrow; seven great-grandchildren, Tyler, Aiden, Jase, Olivia, Haley and Heaven sent “twin” great-granddaughters, Haven and Baylee added to her blessings.

She is also survived by one sister, Cecile House; brother-inlaw Jim Johndrow; sister-in-law Joyce Andersen; many nieces and nephews including special nephew, Ron Drinkwine.

Robert Lynn O’Hara

(May 22, 1935 March 25, 2018) CROWN POINT | Robert Lynn O’Hara passed away peacefully on March 25 with his family by his side. He was born in Crown Point to the late Robert E. and Ethel M. (Newell) O’Hara. He lived from Crown Point to western New York and Pennsylvania, finally settling back into the town where he was born and loved, Crown Point, namely Ironville. Anyone who knew “Lynn,” as he was called, knew about his love of all sports, from his UCONN women’s basketball team, the Boston Red Sox or New York Mets (depending on who was winning), to his New York Giants. His favorite sport was whatever one his grandchildren happened to be playing that day. He was an outdoorsman, with many-a hunting or fishing story, and he passed this love on to his family. His only greater love was his family. Right to the end, he was very passionate about keeping in contact with children, grandchildren and great grandchildren through social media and video chats. He never missed a birthday or anniversary. He was known as a jack of all trades, especially in making golf clubs for people who knew him and his famous fishing lures that never failed to get the big one. Lynn had a great sense of humor, as well as an “I’ll tell it like I see it” attitude. Growing up he would talk about working the farms and fighting forest fires in Pennsylvania as a young man. He also worked as a logger for I.P. in the 1970s, and worked in the Old Mill downtown until his retirement from I.P. in the current mill after 40-plus years. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Norma (Fleming) O’Hara; his siblings Charles (Sharon), Laura Mullen, David, Joann (Larry) Drinkwine; his children Robert (Jo) Trudeau, Debbie Gilleo, Michelle (Ed) Jordan, Rhonda Trudeau, Maureen (Lester) Croft, John (Mary) O’Hara, James L. and Jennifer (Clay) Rafferty; 20 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren and one great, great-granddaughter.

He will be greatly missed, never forgotten and his love will live on in the hearts of all his family and friends simply because he made sure you knew he cared. God bless and Godspeed Dad, brother, husband, poppy, grandpa and greatgrandpa. We love you most-est. Calling hours will be held on Saturday, April 7 from 1-2 p.m. at the Harland Funeral Home in Port Henry. A funeral service will follow at 2 p.m. A gathering will be held following services at the community building in Chilson. To leave condolences for the family please visit harlandfuneralhome.com. ■

Essex-Charlotte ferry robbed Published by Denton Publications, Inc.

Cash taken from unattended till By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

ESSEX | An alleged thief got more than a ride across the Lake Champlain last week, and is believed to have also departed the vessel with an undisclosed amount of cash after robbing the Charlotte to Essex Ferry. The theft took place Tuesday, March 20, on the 3 p.m. crossing from the Vermont (Charlotte) side of the lake to the New York (Essex) side, according to Vermont State Police. Sgt. Mike Kamerling of the VSP said the crossing does not have dockmasters over the winter months because of a decrease in traffic. Instead, commuters pay for their passage on the ferry. The current staffing will change after March 25. At the time the cash was stolen, the register where the money was had been left unattended as crew members attended to other responsibilities, according to authorities. It was unattended for a short period of time, but long enough for the alleged thief or thieves to take off with the undisclosed amount of cash. Kamerling is waiting for information from the Lake Cham-

Tobacco law tabled by county

Essex County will not move forward on raising legal age — for now By Keith Lobdell STAFF WRITER

ELIZABETHTOWN | Essex County lawmakers voted to table a resolution which would raise the legal age for the purchase of tobacco products from 18 to 21. In a motion to table moved by Essex Supervisor Ron Jackson and seconded by Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, the board voted unanimously to table the proposed local law. Jackson said the move to table came at the request of Essex County Health Director Linda Beers.

said he wanted to make sure people knew it was not about the law itself. “I have no problem with raising the age or the proposed local law,” McNally said. “My concern is for the businesses in my town. If Essex County is the only government agency to move forward with this, then the 18-20 year-olds can go six miles down the road in either direction to Warren County and buy cigarettes. If they do that, then they will also by their gas and other items in Warren County and it will hurt my store owners in Minerva.” According to Jackson, the local law will most likely come up again after the groups meet. ■

“She said there were issues they wanted to come back to us on,” said Jackson. In a letter to the board, Beers said the decision to request the table came from a meeting of the Tobacco Subcommittee. “We reviewed the board of supervisors comments from the Human Services Committee meeting held March 12,” Beers said. “Although the resolution passed the board, we acknowledge there were questions raised that we left unanswered.” Beers said she and the subcommittee value the opinions of the supervisors and requested a “learning luncheon” with a group of panelists to allow a free flow of information and “a respectful dialogue around this important topic.” Several supervisors said they did have concerns with the local law during the March 12 meeting, including Minerva Supervisor Steve McNally, who

The Essex County Board of Supervisors has tabled a proposed local law to raise the legal age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21. File photo

» Girl Scout Day Cont. from pg. 1

Fort Ticonderoga is hosting a special event for Girl Scouts By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

TICONDEROGA | This year Fort Ticonderoga will join forces with the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York to host Girl Scout Day on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The scouts will participate in many interactive programs, visit museum exhibitions,

and explore the historic site, including the King’s Garden, Carillon Battlefield Hiking Trail and the Heroic Corn Maze. “Special guided tours and museum exhibitions will immerse the scouts in Fort Ticonderoga’s epic history, “said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga president and CEO. “The visit will include the historic trades shops, where they will learn about key skills that were essential for keeping an army clothed, fed, and prepared, while connecting with scouting goals.” Pre-registration is not necessary. She said scouts will see the flash of musketry and roar of cannon fire during weapons demonstrations; guided tours will highlight Fort Ticonderoga’s epic story in the 18th century. Interactive programs in historic trades including shoe making, carpentry, and tailoring,

The Times of Ti Sun | March 31, 2018 • 19

will give the scouts an active understanding of the work required to maintain an army. Special programs take place in the historic trades shops at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. At noon, scouts will view the process of feeding the troops as the mid-day meal is prepared at the outdoor camp kitchen. The King’s Garden next to the fort will showcase foods grown to feed the troops. For artistically inclined Girl Scouts, “Watercolors in the Garden” and other activities will be offered there from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Near the King’s Garden area, the six-acre Heroic Corn Maze will be created. The Corn Maze will be open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; last entry is at 3:30 p.m. Scouts can take a hike on the Carillon
