Whether that was an exaggeration or not, it is indicative of the number of individual medicalrecord programs that had sprung up at individual offices in the digital age, few of which communicated with each other. The problems were obvious, especially in rural communities where patients are apt to be treated in multiple facilities, said Michael Carrese, director of UVM medical relations. “A lot of times patients have to bring their own records and images with them,” he said. And doctors might not know what other medications or treatments have been prescribed, increasing the chances of duplication. See RECORDS » pg. 12TICONDEROGA | Fift y years ago, 400,000 young people descended on a 600-acre dairy farm in rural New York for “three days of peace and music.” It was, depending on who you talk to, one of the greatest successes or greatest disasters in the history of American pop culture. Woodstock, as the music festival came to be known, has gone down as No. 19 in Rolling Stone’s “50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock and Roll.” But it also largely put an end to music festivals of this scale, as terrified communities scrambled to pass laws to ensure that they would never be invaded by guitar-toting, bare-chested hippies. Those drug-using, free-lovers are now, perish the thought, grandparents, more likely to be dropping stitches than acid. And no one who was born after the baby boom is likely to have any recollection of Woodstock whatsoever. But for those who want to learn or those who want to reminisce, The Ticonderoga Historical Society will present a free public program celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Festival on Friday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga. “Going Down to Yasgur’s Farm” is the name of both the program and the exhibit currently showing at the Historical Society’s museum, and showcases the festival, which came to reflect the actions and attitudes of an entire generation.A Marsha LaPointe mural at the Hancock House is part of a 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock.

The meeting will be held at the town offices on Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. Waterfront committee chairwoman Luci Carpenter said the public is welcome, and the committee will seek direction from both the board and the community. The town signed a deal in November with Brooklyn/Queens Properties to help develop the campground properties, perhaps with permanent cabins, a restaurant and other amenities. The deal was brokered by Michael Craneof Crane Associates in Burlington, a planner experienced with waterfront and tourism issues. But the town did not renew Crane’s contract in the winter because of a lack of funds, and the project lost momentum. Carpenter said the waterfront committee still likes the ideas developed while Crane was working with the town, but the committee needs renewed guidance about the feasibility of those improvements. “We’re looking for direction from the town board, and we want to hear from the public,” Carpenter said. She said the committee is working with Essex County in hopes of obtaining a landscape and design grant that will get the ball rolling. The campgrounds make money, but town officials believe they have much more potential. They sit on a beautiful stretch of Lake Champlain in view of the Champlain Bridge and the Green Mountains of Vermont. But instead of being a showpiece, the waterfront has a neglected feel — a bathhouse at Champ Beach, for example, is closed and outhouses are used instead.

The ad posited that if women were as excited about voting as they were about shopping at this particularstore, they’d have had the ballot by now. But seriously. Helen Allen Nerska, director of the Clinton County Historical Association, speaking to a gathering at the Keene Valley Library last week, said the ad demonstrated the degree to which women’s suffrage was on the minds of North Country residents as states and the nation lurched toward equal voting rights. Articles show that as the debate heated up, there were many clubs, meetings and visits from prominent suffragists in Clinton and Essex counties, Nerska said. This is the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the vote; it was ratified by the people a year later.Ct!AMPLAIN ~ALLEY HEATING & PLUMBING LLCHeating • Plumbing • Air Conditioning Electrical • House Opening & Closing Well Pump Replacement • Mini Splits Sewer Rooter & Camera Services TICONDEROGA, NEW YORK(518) 585-3600 24 Hour Service www.CVHP.net2196702 • August 17, 2019 | The Times of Ti Sun www.suncommunitynews.com Published by Denton Publications, Inc.State to investigate Frontier CommunicationsReliability, service wait times, complaint rates under scrutiny By Kim Dedamwas cut-off lines down the road,” Morrow said.

So\•STAFF WRITERCHESTERFIELD | The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) is investigating service and reliability problems reported by local consumers who use Frontier Communications for telephone service. Commission staff filed a report last week with their board “indicating that several Frontier Communications subsidiaries have significant service quality problems, including escalating complaint rates, lengthy repair durations and localized network reliability issues.” The PSC said it “will work with Frontier to develop and implement a plan to improve poor localized network reliability conditions for four Frontier subsidiaries.” PSC Chairman John B. Rhodes cited increasing concern with the service quality of Frontier, especially in its Citizens, Frontier Rochester, Frontier New York and Ausable Valley subsidiaries. “Complaints include long repair durations and repeated out-of-service conditions, as well as internet access and speed issues,” Rhodes said in announcing their action. “Customers need the company to do better, and we will ensure that it does.” Asked for a response to this investigation, Frontier Vice President for Corporate Communications and External Affairs Javier Mendoza, based in Norwalk, Connecticut, said they will review the PSC report. “Frontier takes Commission Chair Rhodes concerns seriously and is committed to delivering quality service to the New York communities and customers we serve.
