To the Times of Ti:
I couldn't disagree more with the letter from Jeanette Siatkowski (Times of Ti, Sept. 17).
I have visited Fort Ticonderoga for over 30 years and have attended the events at Ticonderoga consistently for 14 years...including the F&I (French & Indian War) event held this past June. If you were there, you would remember that the weather was pretty atrocious at times, so in citing the attendance, she may want to consider acts of nature.
The quality of interpretive staff was far superior to the previous 13 years combined regardless of what she seem to be confabulating about.
The economy is horrible all over, especially in the area, and it’s bad enough without having to add insult to injury by lambasting those individuals who are dedicated to the fort, the community and its history. I suggest she offer proactive solutions to improving the local economy rather than wasting her time and the subscribers time trying to undermine it further with libelous, uninformed banter.
