By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — The North Country has extraordinary assets and will continue to grow, says U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Much of that potential is due to our neighbors to the north, providing the North Country with what it needs to realize job creation, she said. “To be on the Canadian border is so meaningful,” said Gillibrand at a roundtable discussion on crossborder commerce, hosted by the North Country Chamber of Commerce and held at Plattsburgh State. “We have everything we need here to create jobs and to make small business grow.” The senator noted that the

Area developer heading to Plattsburgh dies in plane crash By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH – Albany Developer Walter Uccellini was on his way to visit College Suites in Plattsburgh when the single-engine plane he was riding in crashed shortly after taking off from Albany International Airport. The 67-year-old man, who is a private pilot, was not at the controls when the single-engine plane tried to make an emergency landing in Clifton Park after experiencing engine problems. Uccellini died when the six-seat, 1981 Beechcraft crashed near Van Vranken Road at around 7:30 a.m. The plane smashed into the ground and came to a stop against a pine tree in a residential area. Uccellini, founder, principal owner, and chairman of The United Group of


Companies in North Greenbush, was pronounced dead at the scene. The pilot, Jim Quinn, 68, of Westerlo, vice chairman of United Group, which developed College Suites student housing at 59 Broad Street, was seriously injured. They were on their way to review the property in Plattsburgh before school begins. New York State Police secured the crash site, and the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board conducted investigations. Preliminary findings point to engine trouble. Uccellini was in the midst of several projects in the Troy area. He is responsible for several projects associated with colleges and universities, including a $60 million university-based student housing project at the Universi-

Supports incumbent Duprey To the Burgh: It has been my pleasure to serve in the NYS Assembly with Janet Duprey. Her integrity, knowledge and intelligence make her the right choice for this position. Janet has the respect of all Members of the Legislature and works in a non-partisan way to get things done. She is a tireless advocate for her North Country constituents and her institutional knowledge of tough North Country issues is invaluable. Jan worked hand in hand with ARISE and the Tupper Lake community to push the Adirondack Club and Resort Project through the permitting process. She is a strong advocate for the local economy of all of the North Country communities and works cooperatively with federal, state, local governments as well as the business, farming and nonprofit entities. Janet is working closely with the Governor ’s office on North Country economic issues, sensitive Indian issues, education issues and many others. Janet was instrumental in the formation of the Adirondack Caucus and arranged an exchange program for downstate legislators to come to the Adirondack North Country to learn about our issues first hand. This gathering was a great success and those very legislators are now participating members of the Caucus. Janet negotiated legislation that became law that helps families with autistic children to access health care coverage. One parent told Jan that it cost him and his wife over $35 thousand dollars out of pocket to get care for their autistic daughter. I encourage all Republicans to vote on Primary Day for Janet Duprey! She is honest, capable, smart and genuine in her concern for the people of the North Country.

Burgh Editorial

Buy American; Buy local Who can we trust? T

he much-publicized recession our country is perpetually trying to claw its way out of has been a talking point for political debates, activism, and partisan dart throwing for as long as recent memory can recall. It is difficult to know what to believe, and the only thing that seems clear is that the cause of all the turmoil is firmly planted on the opposite side of whichever political arena the person speaking swears allegiance to. Meanwhile, as the politicians and their media conglomerate counterparts are deciding which $100 entrée to order, people are suffering in every community around the nation. To folks who must worry about how to feed their families, the question isn’t really about who to blame; it’s about what we, as citizens, can do to better our own lives. Fortunately, in the North Country, there’s plenty we can do. In a region where the corn is aplenty, where it’s impossible to travel in any direction and not pass an apple orchard, where roadside farm stands outnumber stop lights, it seems unreasonable to purchase a tomato that was grown in California and coated with chemicals so it could withstand the punishment incurred from being shipped 3,000 miles across the country. Likewise, it seems unreasonable to purchase plastic furniture that was made in China when there are local craftsman making furniture from local resources that is sturdy enough to endure generations of usage. The idea of buying local is more important now than ever. To be clear, it is not to promote isolationism or withdrawal from the global economy. The intent is not to shut out other cultures or ideas. The goal of buying local is much more genuine—it is about making intelligent, well-informed decisions when spending money. Yes, people can vote with their dollars. They can vote “yes” for supporting their neighbors. They can vote “yes” for keeping money in the local economy. They can vote “yes” for knowing the products they purchase were created or grown in a sustainable manner. And it might even help people save money. Recently, national news coverage has had a lot to say about farming. More than 60 percent of the nation, it has been reported,

is still reeling from the effects of a severe drought. Crop yields are low, and as a result the price of produce is expected to skyrocket next year. To add another kernel to the cob of distress, most of the meat that is mass produced in the US is raised on corn. Logic dictates that all of this will add up to an increase in the price of meat as well. It sounds like another incapacitating blow to folks who are already struggling to get by. The outlook does seem discouraging, even terrifying, but the solution to the expensive-produce problem is simple. In fact, it’s all around us. Local farmers have reported that they do not expect the price of their meats, fruits or veggies to increase at all next year. It’s great news for anyone living in the North Country, especially considering the fact that the cost of produce at most farmers markets is already equal to or lower than the prices found in the big grocery stores. So that might be a good place to start. Sure, it’s nice to be able to buy a cucumber, socks, stereo and gun safe all under one roof, but now there’s a prudent, economical reason to try something different. But there are other reasons, too, reasons that come from a place deeper than the compartments of a pocket book. It turns out, it’s a comforting feeling being able to shake the hand that planted the seeds your squash sprouted from. There’s something empowering about cruising past the field where your apples were grown, something that imbues a sense of satisfaction as the fruit’s juices drip off your chin. Buying local is a movement, but it’s more than that. It’s a lifestyle choice that invests in the future of our region by supporting our farmers, thus ensuring we will always have enough to eat as long as we live in the North Country. And if that line of reasoning isn’t good enough to convince you, here’s a little secret: the food tastes better, too.

can recall many years ago as a young boy questioning my father as he watched the political conventions on television. He explained the importance of the conventions and the position planks drafted by the parties. I clearly recall him telling me: “Even if you are unsure of the candidate’s capabilities, you can be assured of their actions based on the party platform they represent.” He went on to explain that the convention provided party representatives the opportunity to position the party with a balanced plan for the country that affected all levels of government. Over the years that lesson has provided a basis for trust in our government, but as time has marched on neither party seems to have a very balanced approach, instead giving way to the more extreme opinions within their respective parties. Those opinions in many ways are driven by special interests and special interest is ultimately driven by “money.” From what I can see the most significant common denominator between the two parties is the influence of “money” and the special interest that “money” represents. Both parties have a tremendous need to raise cash and reward their major supporters. Everything surrounding the elections unfolding before us now is driven by “money” and the influence that “money” has on the legislation that gets passed, and opportunities that will be quietly awarded to those who assisted the flow of those funds through the campaigns. Currently the Democratic Party and President Obama are attempting to make an issue out of the amount of taxes paid or not paid by presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Governor Romney recently stated he never paid less than 13 percent annually for taxes. I’m not sure I understand what the fuss is all about. Who among us, regardless of your income, doesn’t try to take advantage of every IRS deduction available? While Romney paid $3,226,000 in federal taxes in 2011, he also reportedly gave $4,020,572 to charities. What the attack ads do not mention is Romney would have been better off ignoring the charities and paying an extra $1.4 million in taxes bringing his total tax percentage to 22 percent of his income.  Certainly makes for a less compelling campaign ad, and Romney would have had an extra $2.6 million for his campaign. Certainly someone with Mr. Romney’s wealth hires a firm to work within the guidelines of the American tax codes to pay no more than is required to satisfy the legal limit. Mr. Romney is not to blame for the rate of taxes he pays, our government is to blame. So what is the point of the Democratic ads that are running? It would seem they want the American

public to be outraged that someone that rich would only pay 13 percent, and that somehow that support’s the PresiDan Alexander dents claim that rich Thoughts from people are not payBehind the Pressline ing their fair share. Are we to believe that someone who earns a similar amount, not through earned wages but through capital gains as has been reported is the bulk of Mr. Romney’s income, freely pays more in taxes if they are a Democrat? The tax codes and the many deductions accorded to those of wealth are the doing of both parties. I’m not sure I know anyone of Mr. Romney’s wealth, but I have known a few wealthy people in my time and I have never, ever heard anyone brag about paying the government more in taxes than they were required to pay. Most people with that amount of wealth generally donate considerable funds to charity both to avoid giving it to government but also to support causes dear to them. When candidates have talked about changing the tax codes as Stephen Forbes did a few campaigns back or Herman Cain did in his run for the Republican nomination this spring most people, as well as the pundits, dismiss the notion as not realistic (code for that will never fly). The tax codes with all their loop holes have been created for a reason and those reasons will not be easily altered. The bottom line brings us back to the fact that this economy is driven by capitalism, making “money” the largest and most significant factor in American politics today. Both sides cater to those who have it and the influence it has on the outcome of elections and ultimately the direction government takes. The vast majority of us during this election cycle would like to trust what we are being told, but remember it’s “money” that drives these elections, spawns the attack ads and behind the “money” are the true influencers that set the direction for the parties and their candidates. If you are opposed to big business just keep in mind the really big business is American politics. As citizens we may have the power to vote but the masses can be easily influenced by the powerful super PACs and campaign machines. Just be mindful of who you can really trust when listening to the messages that have already begun to come our way and will saturate the media in the coming weeks.

The political scene leaves a sour taste C

overing politics consistently sours my stomach.

Its seems substance takes a second spot to personal attacks that border on emotional abuse as far as I am concerned. I recall covering a meeting once and an individual loudly and venomously went on the attack, making personal accusations and resorting to name calling, as if in a fit of rage. If I close my eyes, I swear I can still see the venom spraying from this person’s mouth. When I expressed dismay I was told I was naïve to the process and politics are tough. I’m not naïve to any process and I agree politics are tough. I simply do not condone that type of behavior, unless, for example, it is an emotional reaction by a parent who just witnessed his or her child assaulted, something that in fact can be explained biologically.

Plus, studies not only indicate that the brain processes pain in the same way, but that when it comes to the impact of pain, emotional and psychological abuse often have more of a harmful impact on people than physical pain. So technically, if a politician is inflicting such abuse on someone and says it’s all just part of the process, couldn’t I, as someone who studied martial arts his entire life inflict physical pain, the lesser of the two, and say, “Well hey, this is just part of my process. You don't seem to mind hurting people.” But forgetting that aspect of all this nastiness, I always thought two wrongs didn’t make a right. I thought we modeled the behavior we wanted to see reflected in society. I thought every action stood on its own. If this is the case, which I believe it is, then it seems there is no justification for such petty and pathetic behavior from politicians

Stephen Bartlett

From the Editor’s Desk if their actions stand apart, to be dissected, independent of whatever actions may have preceded them. Yet it never fails. My entire career as a journalist, as soon as people decide they are going to run for some office, I start receiving emails that claim he did this, she did that, he is an idiot,

she is a liar, he is a deceiver, she lacks character, he is dishonest, she is a baby, he lacks morality, her ethics are comparable to a hardened criminal. In fact, say the email is about a certain issue a politician took a particular stance on, the opponent never emails specifically about the issue. The message consistently points out how much of an idiot and liar Joe is — using that sort of name-calling and worse — before and/or after stating something about the issue itself. This has consistently made me want to stay away from political reporting. It has also consistently helped lessen the shock and outrage over the dysfunction in Albany and Washington, though only slightly. Still, I do cover politics from time to time and obviously will write objective reports, just with a box of Tums nearby. I have actually known some decent politicians who do not resort

to vicious attacks, petty name calling and bullying behavior that we tell our children to avoid, yet in politics role model for them. Some of those politicians I have known not only stay away from such delinquent behavior, they even stray from their party line at times and vote from the heart on issues, in my opinion, doing what is right instead of what their party dictates, or even the majority of their constituents. Of course, their opponents, even members of the party they belong to, instantly go on the attack, like rabid dogs, frothing at the mouth as they hurl insults from their psychologically abusive bag of cruel tricks. Thankfully, the politicians who voted with their conscience remain strong. I just wish they would all remain strong and quit acting like bullies. Reach Editor Stephen Bartlett at

Our life coaches, Style and Substance: Parents as role models after speaking openly about the issue. Be aware of how you discuss what happened between your children and be especially careful with the language you choose. Just like you, parents are very protective of their children and do not always see that their child is imperfect. If possible, lead the conversation to a point where both adults agree to support the children in solving the problem. If there is bullying involved, then it is a different issue. Children should be protected from bullying situations while at the same time given skills to negotiate a difficult situation. You may decide that the friendship is not one in which you want to invest any more of your time and energy. This person will most likely be a part of your life in some way simply because your children go to school together. Some rules for you; stay polite, stay quiet, and politely keep your distance. Don’t talk about the parent with others – this makes you look like a gossip and untrustworthy. Don’t talk about your child to others about the situation; this sets a tone of drama and unkindness for your own child to possibly duplicate. Your child will continue to confide in you if she/he knows they can trust you to protect their privacy. A great rule of thumb that works with all relationships is: no one wants, or needs, to have a private matter discussed publically! Good luck!

Dear Style & Substance: I guess I have made a huge mistake in becoming good friends with my daughter ’s “best friend’s” mother. Maybe these types of friendships are common; however, our two daughters had a huge falling out at an overnight camp this summer. Now I am having trouble with our adult friendship. The main gist of the problem at camp had to do with best friends being exclusive or inclusive with others. Feelings were hurt and there ended up being a lot of drama. Do you have any suggestions of how to proceed? This seems to be a very natural theme with adult friendships in that we are friends with the parents of our children’s friends, because we are involved in their lives and spend most of our available free time at events and sports. Keeping the friendships separate, without judgment can be very difficult. Some parents get overly involved in their children’s friendships and feel that they have to “solve” the problems that naturally occur in growing kids. As children grow, they develop at different rates and pursue different friendships as their interests change. We best serve them by allowing to naturally grow closer or apart, with certain moral rules in place; be friendly and nice, explain yourself, and invite old friends to become a part of a new group. When a problem occurs, check your own child for moral behaviors, and encourage apologies if needed. Encourage your child to communicate in person (not through technology) with his or her friend. You and your adult friend should allow the children the opportunity to work things out without interference - this means supporting both children. As parents, our first instinct is to rescue or “save” our children from uncomfortable situations. In reality, we are not doing our children any favors with this action. All people grow from the experience of making mistakes,

apologizing, and forgiving. Relationships can weather many storms when compassion guides this honest communication. You may decide that your friendship is worth keeping

ooker is one out of ten kittens that was born into a hoarding situation in Altona, New York. This fun loving kitten just loves to play and to frolic as most young kittens do. Booker is super sweet and would just love to meet his new family. Won't you consider giving this wonderful kitten a safe and loving home? Booker tested FeLV, FIV and heart worm negative. He will be available for adoption as soon as he is altered and current on vaccinations.

ur featured pet this week is Austin, a Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie/Cairn Terrier-mix who was abandoned with his sister, Autumn in a tiny crate without room to move. Austin is a little shy at first; although we haven't seen his true terrier personality come out yet, he is gradually becoming more outgoing and relaxed. This little guy is truly difficult to resist, with his perky smile and fiercely wagging tail! Austin and Autumn don't have much experience on a leash, but they are learning quickly with some coaching from shelter staff, and are truly enjoying their walks. We believe he will make someone a delightful little lap puppy. Don't delay - if you are looking for a sweet, fun little dog, we expect that Austin and his sister won't be here long!

Battle of Plattsburgh bigger and better By Stephen Bartlett

Gary VanCour, Kit Booth and Plattsburgh Mayor Donald Kasprzak discuss the Battle of Plattsburgh events. has played with Bob Dylan and has been nominated for several Grammy awards. Her Majesty’s Royal Marine Band will be featured the evening of Sept. 8. “The Royal Marine Band as become an annual favorite,” VanCour said. “Attend these concerts. There is something for everybody.” Some of the lectures include Don Papson, who will discuss African-Americans in the Battle of Plattsburgh at 2 p.m., Sept. 2, at the War of 1812 Museum on the Old Base campus. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor will speak about his book “The Civil War of 1812” during a presentation at 7 p.m., Sept. 5, at E. Glitz Auditorium in Plattsburgh State’s Hawkins Hall. “You don’t often get this caliber of individual here,” VanCour said. Booth said a representative of the British Navy would be at the event, as well as four


PLATTSBURGH — It is the most important event the City of Plattsburgh is involved with each year, said Mayor Donald Kasprzak. The parade honors those who never returned from battle, the music could fuel its own festival and at least one talk will feature a Pulitzer Prize winning author. Those details and more were highlighted during the 2012 Battle of Plattsburgh press conference. Longtime organizers Gary VanCour and Kit Booth said there was something new and something for everyone at the 10-day event that starts Aug. 31. “We got a lot coming up this year,” Booth said. “There is a lot of new stuff.” The British Invasion Dinner at Plattsburgh American Legion Post 20 on Friday, Aug. 31, kicks the festivities off. Reservations for the dinner can be made by calling the Battle of Plattsburgh Association at 566-1814. The cost is $35 per person and $60 per couple for the buffet dinner. “If you have period clothing and like to wear it that is fine, but it is not required,” VanCour said. British troops marched from the Canadian border down, and more towns are taking ownership of the event, including the Town of Chazy. On Sept. 1, British troops will camp at the Scott House on Route 9 in Chazy, the site of British Commander Gen. Prevost’s temporary headquarters. That evening, Towne Meeting, a local band that plays folk, country and acoustic rock, will play at Chazy Central Rural School. VanCour noted that many “top-notch” musicians will perform in concerts and shows. Some groups have played around the country and are big names in the music industry, including the Cromatix, a band that

re-enactors coming from England. “Saturday is the parade day, following a re-enactment in Beekmantown in the morning,” Booth said. “This is where the first bloody conflict took place.” The parade on Sept. 8 will feature more marching bands, musicians and other participants. At the start of the parade, the grandmaster car will be empty in memory of those who went to combat and never came back. The Battle of Plattsburgh activities include more than 500 volunteers. “You have to have a large number of people, and there is always a need,” VanCour said. Anyone interested in volunteering can call 561-4039. “This is truly a team effort, and without each part it wouldn’t happen,” VanCour said. Kasprzak stressed that it was a “worldclass event.” “It is something that is really meaningful for the City of Plattsburgh.”

Fall Semester to begin at CCC PLATTSBURGH — Clinton Community College will kick off the 2012-2013 academic year on Monday, Aug. 27. “The start of a new school year always brings about a renewed sense of energy. We look forward to welcoming our new and returning students to campus for the start of another semester,” Clinton Community College President John E. Jablonski said. Coming off an exciting and busy summer season, Clinton will usher in the academic year with a new logo and new brand identity. Both elements have been showcased prominently throughout the summer with an advertising campaign and various campus publications. This Fall, Clinton will enroll a record number of Presidential Scholars. Forty-one students who graduated this year with a high school average of at least 90 percent will attend the College this year. In the three previous years of the Presidential Scholarship program, there were as many as 24 scholars in a year. “We are so pleased that many of Clinton County’s top scholars are coming to Clinton this Fall.” President Jablonski said. “It’s an indication that students and their families recognize the quality of the educational programs that our faculty and staff provide.” The college has hit another milestone with a record number of International Students attending the college for the 2012-2013 academic year, with 32. More than 20 of those students are from China. The remainder will come to Clinton from Bahrain, Canada, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Russia, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Uzbekistan and Venezuela. Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Cheryl Reagan said, “Our international student program enriches the academic and cultural experience of a Clinton education. All of our students benefit from their interactions with people from different cultures.” New and returning students will be moving into the residence halls this week. New students will move in on Thursday, Aug. 23 and returning students on Sunday, Aug. 26. A number of cultural and academic activities will be taking place on campus throughout the year for students, staff and the community. One of the first activities taking place for students is the annual “Fall Festival.” The event will be held on the Clinton campus, Sept. 5.

Law enforcement wants help with hit and run By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — Rasario Farnhan rode his bike north on Moffitt Road in the Town of Plattsburgh shortly before dinnertime last weekend.

NBT bank robbery suspect apprehended PLATTSBURGH — Oneil O. Stephenson, 33, wanted for July 2, 2012 NBT Bank Robbery in Plattsburgh, New York, was apprehended Aug. 20 by the New York City Office of the FBI. On July 2, 2012, Stephenson entered the NBT Bank located at 482 Route 3 in the town of Plattsburgh and passed a note to a bank teller stating that he was Oneil O. Stephenson armed with a gun and demanded money. He then left the bank on foot in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash. Forensic evidence secured at the scene by the Forensic Identification Unit resulted in Stephenson being identified as the suspect, and a warrant of arrest was issued. The investigation also established that Stephenson was a suspect in several other bank robberies. The Troop B Violent Crimes Investigation Team has been working continuously with the FBI and the New York Police Department Robbery Squad in locating Stephenson. Troop B State Police were assisted by the Plattsburgh City Police Department, SUNY Plattsburgh Police Department, Clinton County Sheriff's Office, the United States Border Patrol, Troop New York City, the State Police Violent Felony Warrant Squad and Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie.

Suddenly, a vehicle hit the 28-year-old man from behind, sending him hurling from the bike and leaving him unconscious on the side of the road. The vehicle fled the scene, and now, Clinton County Sheriff ’s Department is looking for information that will lead to the arrest of an individual charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. “The Clinton County Sheriff ’s Department is investigating a leaving the scene of a personal injury car versus bicycle accident,” according to a press release from the Clinton County Sheriff ’s Department. The accident occurred on the Moffit Road in the vicinity of the south-bound on-ramp for I-87. Farnhan was riding his black and white Thruster BMX bike in a northerly direction at around 4:45 p.m. when he was struck from behind by an unknown vehicle. The force of the accident ejected him from his bicycle, and he lost consciousness along the side of Moffitt Road. The vehicle then fled the scene. A nearby witness observed a white car, unknown make and model, with a female driver and a child passenger in the area at the time of the accident. The child exited the vehicle and moved the bike to the side of the road. Farnhan was transported to CVPH Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. The investigation continues, and the Sheriff ’s Department encourages anyone with information, or any autobody shops that encounter a vehicle with front-end damage, to contact the Sheriff ’s Department at 565-4340. New York requires motor vehicle operators who know or have reason to know damage has occurred to property or injury due to an accident involving the vehicle they were driving to stop and display license and insurance information to law enforcement before leaving the area where the accident

occurred. Leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury is a crime punishable by up to one year in jail, and leaving the scene involving serious physical injury or death can result in felony charges carrying a maximum sentence of up to seven years. Hit and run laws arose from the difficulties early car accident victims faced in identifying perpetrators driving vehicles with no license plates on dusty roads while wearing driving goggles. Roughly 11 of every 100 accidents will be a hit and run, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Between 2000 and 2005, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reported a 20-percent increase in the number of fatal hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians. Attempts to understand the mental state of hit-and-run drivers were made as instances rose and were released in several studies, including an article titled, “The Psychology of Hit and Run.” Most hit and runs are accidents committed by ordinary people who panic and opt to flee rather than face the consequences. They also could be holding drugs, uninsured, unlicensed or drunk. Often, such individuals make what is referred to as a “rational” decision, coming from higher social economic class and believing they have more to lose than most individuals. Then there are individuals who quickly speed away, not knowing what to do as they make an “irrational” and “thoughtless” decision. Again, the Clinton County Sheriff ’s Department asks anyone with information on the Moffitt Road incident to call 565-4340.

SPCA breaks ground on Essex County’s new shelter By Katherine Clark

“We didn’t downgrade any of the plans we simply cut some of the electives we would have liked but didn’t need,” Reuther said. “All in all, we are on schedule to open a great shelter for the animals.”

Economics from page 1 Plattsburgh International Airport is thriving. “When I drove by the airport the lot was full.” Gillibrand stressed the importance of partnerships between business and education. Creating jobs and filling vacant positions requires such partnerships and is highly dependent on education, she said. Such partnerships create specific training programs that boost the employment pool and bring business to the area. “We need more funds for community colleges to train the workforce,” Gillibrand said. “We have to do more to prepare our workforce for the jobs that are available.” She referenced a welding program at Adirondack Com-

munity College that trained workers for Bombardier Corp. in Plattsburgh. “Manufacturing around the state is struggling, but the economic growth potential is real,” Gillibrand said. “We should be building on our successes and assets.” The North Country is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, something she said should be cultivated. Gillibrand voiced her support for project labor agreements, which call for local union workers to be hired for jobs at prevailing wages instead of turning to firms from out of the area at lower costs. “People who have used PLAs have appreciated them,” she said. “We will look for ways to encourage participants to use them.” Gillibrand agreed that infrastructure around the state is aging but stressed that “we cannot afford to raise property

taxes, anywhere.” “What we hope to do is a bipartisan bill that would create a vehicle for the private sector to invest in infrastructure.” Gillibrand also discussed the Made in America bill, contending it was more cost efficient to keep jobs in the country rather than send them oversees. “The quality of work is better here.” Congressman Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh) also spoke at the event. He said the Beyond the Border agreement moves goods more quickly through the border with the proper level of security. Moving goods efficiently and security is something that must be balanced, he said. “We think it is important to recognize the impact Canada has on our communities and the entire U.S.,” Owens said.



The new shelter, with a capacity designed to meet the needs of 65 cats and up to 25 dogs will not only be able to comfortably house more animals than the current shelter, located at 23 Lakeshore Road, but should help increase adoption rates. “Based on studies of animal adoption rates at new shelters, we expect our adoption rate to increase 50 to 100 percent,” Reuther said. “We anticipate many more people will come to the shelter because it will be a very welcoming facility.” Reuther said the new facility will include an improved ventilation system that will reduce the spread of illness among the shelter animals, meet standards for animal care with isolation rooms for sick animals and a room for basic medical procedures. The facility will be welcoming to potential pet owners with areas where people can spend time with a pet before adoption. There will also be another room for obedience and puppy training to send animals with good manners to new homes. The property will also include larger kennel areas and a large wooded area outside for animals to play and exercise. Individuals who wish to make a donation to help fund the final construction costs can send a check to: North Country SPCA, 23 Lake Shore Road, Westport, N.Y. 12993, or donate online at


WESTPORT — Board members of the North Country SPCA and contractors had a quiet ground breaking ceremony at the site for a new shelter Aug. 14. The ceremony held at the construction site on Route 9N east of Elizabethtown was a small victory after a year of planning and two years of fundraising according to co-chair of the capital campaign, Margaret Reuther. “Building the new shelter would not have been possible without the generosity of nearly 1,000 people throughout Essex County as well as other parts of New York and also Vermont,” Reuther said. “The tremendous support from our community has made this exciting new building a reality.” The shelter, to be named the Frances Miller Shelter after the mother of one of the major donors, is the only animal shelter in Essex County. Each year, the NCSPCA cares for more than 400 homeless, abandoned and abused animals, continuing its mission since it was founded in 1969. The new shelter will offer animals a state of the art facility to call home till they find their permanent families. Reuther said the project is still in need of $50,000 for final construction costs but the group is faithful the funds will be attained through fundraisers before the building is completed. Earlier in the year the non-for-profit submitted a new set of plans for the building to remain on budget and on time.

New principal at Saranac Elementary School

By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH – Many people want to volunteer. Several agencies need volunteers. Yet forming a union from this want and need is not always as easy as one would guess, resulting in frustration and unmet needs on both sides. That is why the United Way of the Adirondack Region has created the North Country Regional Volunteer Center. The website will help connect volunteers with opportunities and provide organizations with a venue to post their needs. “Volunteering is a huge help to non-profits, and it is a big part of the United Way mission,” said Larry Pickreign II, Outreach Coordinator for the United Way of the Adirondack Region. “Most people don’t volunteer because they have never been asked.”

The primary focus of the teer center is to engage volunteers Funds for the center came from and solve community issues. The a grant established by the New goal is to include all service organYork State Commission on Nationizations in their activities as well as al and Community Service.

Volunteers and agencies can register at north“This is a free list of agencies,” Pickreign said.

Not only will the center connect volunteers with opportunities, there will also be training for use of the web site. “We are still working out a few glitches,” said Kathy Snow, Director of Development for the United Way of the Adirondack Region. The site will also generate a report detailing volunteer hours and number of volunteers, something that will be useful when writing grants. “The agencies just write down their needs and the volunteers match those needs,” Snow said. “Volunteers feel part of the community when they do the work.” There will be training for agencies that wish to use the free volunteer center and its website to input volunteer opportunities held on Aug. 24, from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. at the United Way office located at 45 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh.

Heart health tips no matter the weather The weather and temperature outdoors can have a large impact on energy levels and motivation to exercise. Warm, sunny weather can beckon one outdoors, while cold or rainy weather could keep one hibernating inside -- which is not good for the spirit or the body, including cardiovascular health. Staying active when the weather seems to be pitted against you can be challenging. However, there are many things you can do to make the best of things and still get the exercise needed for a healthy heart. Here are a few ideas to get you started. * Head outdoors: Instead of the regular workouts you do, consider something that makes the

most of the weather outdoors. If it’s hot outside, consider walking by the seaside where the ocean mist can keep you cool, or having your feet in the laps of water reaching the sand. Unless you are the Wicked Witch of the West, a little rainfall will not make you melt. Don a raincoat and take a brisk walk around the neighborhood. If it’s cold outdoors, or if there’s any residual snow, sledding or skiing remain fun ways to burn calories. All of these activities count as moderate to vigorous exercise, which is recommended daily for most people. * Workout indoors: This doesn’t necessarily mean heading to the nearest gym.

Meadowbrook Block Party a slam dunk

Richard Hameline surrounded by his family at Meadowbrook Healthcare’s Block Party.

By Stephen Bartlett

friends walked smiling through the Block Party, participating in the activities, eating cotton candy and spending time with a loved one living at Meadowbrook. “I have volunteered here for a long time,” said Patty Lafave. She gets self satisfaction from doing it and also knows many of the residents personally. “I have friends and relatives here.” PLATTSBURGH — Smiling, white faced clowns pumped out balloon animals. Excited shrieks from the dunking booth pierced the air, anyone within a few feet was sprayed with water. Cotton candy and fair food filled nostrils as the Castaways took the stage, their music a two-step down memory lane. But the best part for Richard Hameline, 86, was his grandkids. “I enjoy it,” he grinned from his wheelchair outside Meadowbrook Healthcare in Plattsburgh, the sun beaming brightly overhead. The 200-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility has been holding an annual Block Party for 10 years. “We invite all of our neighbors so we can get to know them,” said Kim Clowney, activities director for Meadowbrook Healthcare. “We also do it to get the residents outdoors and to bring the fair to them.” The event included pie throwing, a dunking booth, fair food, entertainment, a talent show, carnival games, arts and crafts, snow cones, cotton candy, donkeys and more. Activities are an important part of what occurs at Meadowbrook, which has been recognized as the North Country “facility of

choice” for short- and long-term care since 1974. Meadowbrook offers two to three daily activities as well as bigger ones up to three times weekly. Everyone looks forward to the Block Party. “It’s a great way for the residents to become involved in their community,” Clowney said. Many neighbors, family members and

Cook from page 1 against, raged on. Cook joined what is today Americorps and drove to New York City to volunteer in East Harlem amid much political chaos and dissent. He worked with a small group organizing tenants to purchase the building they lived in. Cook worked on the project for a year, spending time on a violent block and also delving into healthcare organizing. Next, Cook worked in a maximum security psychiatric hospital as a rehabilitation therapist. “That was a great experience.” The population included individuals who had committed horrific acts, as well as inmates who became mentally ill while serving time in prison. He became interested in mental health and attended Rutgers, earning a master ’s degree in social work within a clinical program. Cook became one of the early people to get involved with cognitive and behavioral therapy. He completed an internship in Newark during riots and found himself a “drop of white in a bucket of black.” Then he entered the public school system in suburban New Jersey, work he enjoyed, though Cook wanted to stretch himself. He moved to the North Jersey Shore, spending time as a clinician in a mental health center in an upscale community. At the Children’s Psychiatric Center Community Mental Health Center, Cook did pre-vocational programming for a couple years and ran groups around pragmatic learning. “These were kids who had historically been institutionalized.” So he started with after school chores. “I can remember teaching kids how to mop floors in an organized way.” Cook was offered a job developing specialized children’s services in the rapidly growing Jersey Shore area, starting as director of children’s services. He started a day treatment program and a school for adolescents with severe mental illnesses.

She helps with mass and said it is important for people to volunteer and pop in, even if only for 10 minutes. “Some of these people get lonely.” Cliff St. Louis walked with Lafave at the Block Party, joking that he follows here around. “It is nice to get the patients out for fresh air and these types of activities,” he said. “Five minutes can go a long way to change these people’s lives.” The Block Party is a wonderful event for the children and makes them feel welcome, said Mary Ann Sorrell. Her father, Hameline, broke his neck and lives at Meadowbrook after spending some time at a facility in Canada. “Dad just dunked somebody in the booth,” Sorrell said excitedly. She appreciates how open Meadowbrook is to the community, especially compared to the “old days” when nursing homes were sealed off. “They have been looking forward to this all year,” Sorrell said. Her children feel at home at Meadowbrook, playing Bingo and taking the back way up the stairs. “I think this is inviting and turns people on to the carnival,” Hameline said. “Look how excited everyone is. “They all want to be involved.”

At 37, he took over as CEO of the agency, doing budgets by hand for a time after the financial department was wiped out. Meanwhile, Cook got married, and when his oldest reached school age, he realized he didn’t want to bring up his children there. “I wanted to get back to a more rural area.” He saw the position for president and ceo in the New York Times for what is now Behavioral Health Services North and headed north for an interview. Cook knew instantly he wanted to raise his family in the area, and when he was offered the job he took it, despite a 20 percent cut in salary. That was 1989, and today, his youngest is graduating from college, another graduated from Clinton Community College, a third is working on a doctorate and a fourth wants to enter public service. His wife teaches special education locally. BHSN has flourished during Cook’s tenure with a recent expansion of adult services at the newly renovated Center for Well Being facility on Route 22B in Morrisonville. “We have developed a lot of programming that is consistent with local values,” Cook said. His retirement is effective the beginning of 2013. A regional search is bring conducted for a new president and ceo. “We want to thank Harry for his tenure as CEO of BHSN as it has grown and strengthened under his leadership in its services to our North Country residents,” said Dr. Raymond Domenico, Chair of the BHSN Board of Directors. “Our hope is to find a successor as equally caring and experienced as Harry, who shares our future-focused vision and our mission to strengthen individuals, families and community life with our multiplicity of services.” Cook said he leaves as the healthcare environment rapidly changes. One of the issues that has driven Cook personally is the fact that people with any kind of vulnerability living in rural areas have higher rates of problems than those in suburban areas. There are real challenges in rural areas, he said, especially access to services.

Much of the work requires a willingness to step back from one’s self to work around an issue. “It draws you out of yourself and gets you up every day,” Cook said. The economy also increases the difficulty of the work. Money is tight and with funding cuts, employees have not received raises in four years. He has enjoyed the work and the challenges and is eager to hand it off to someone else. “My wife says I owe her 30 years of backlogged housework,” Cook said.

Restaurant owner happy to call Pbugh home Sawatdee co-owner Supanee Gilbert lived in Thailand, California before moving to North Country

By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH — Growing up in Thailand’s Nakhon Pathom province, Plattsburgh was probably the last place Supanee Gilbert thought she’d end up. But now Gilbert, who co-owns the Sawatdee Thai restaurant in downtown Plattsburgh with Samitra Nelson, said she’s never been happier. Gilbert moved to San Francisco in 1998 to pursue an education in fashion design, and met her future husband, William, there. From there, the couple moved to Southern California and began planning their future. Since his family lived in Barre, Vermont, William wanted to relocate to the Northeast. “I’m from Thailand, a very warm country,” Gilbert said. “I heard it’s cold for six months in Vermont and I thought, ‘oh no, no, no.’” Gilbert found more than a long winter awaiting her in the North Country, though. “After you are used to living in a big city, this area is relaxed,” Gilbert said. “I adjusted to the weather, and now I love the four seasons.” These days, Gilbert and her husband are happy they can raise their two boys in a safe community. “In California, I always heard about people doing bad things,” Gilbert said. “Out there, your child has to be next to you all the time. I came here, and now I feel more relaxed

about raising a child.” Even though Gilbert left some of the risks of California behind, she took a new risk when her business partner suggested opening a Thai restaurant in Plattsburgh. To their knowledge, the small city had never seen anything like it, and they both wondered how people would respond. There was only one way to find out — the Gilberts moved to Plattsburgh and Supanee and her partner opened Sawatdee. That was four years ago this August, and Gilbert said the business is still doing well. “It’s a little bit hard to introduce something people don’t know,” Gilbert said. “People think Thai and they think spicy, but it doesn’t have to be that way.” Gilbert said that most of the dishes at Sawatdee are authentic Thai recipes, and that they can be made to cater to varying tolerances for heat. Curry is an exception, though. “Curry has to be spicy because curry paste is spicy,” Gilbert said. “If it isn’t spicy, it isn’t curry. It’s something else.” The cooks at Sawatdee rely on fresh meats and vegetables for their dishes. Once a vegetable has sat for a couple days it starts to look limp, which is easy to see in a stir-fry dish. “We buy local vegetables from Prays almost every day,” Gilbert said. “We don’t get big shipments because it helps keep everything fresh.” As long as people continue to patronize Sawatdee, Gilbert said she will be happy to continue serving them authentic Thai food. “I have to thank the community for its support,” Gilbert said. “We are happy to offer another healthy choice downtown.”

Farmers market coupons available PLATTSBURGH — It is the time of year when fresh crops from our local farmers are available to us at the local farmers markets and fresh produce stands. This makes it easier for each of us to select and enjoy fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets in cooperation with Clinton County Office for the Aging cooperate to promote good nutrition for the area seniors through the distribution of Farmers Market Coupons. The purpose of the program, which provides a $20 coupon booklet to each eligible senior household, is to encourage purchasing locally grown fruit and vegetables. The coupons may be used through Nov. 15, but check the list for local market closing dates. To be eligible applicants must be 60 years old or older and fall within the income guidelines. The new USDA Income regulations levels are $1,772 for a 1 person household per month; or $2,333 per month 2 person household.
