This Week



By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH „ Plattsburgh’s  fi rst  First  Friday  has  evolved  into  First  Weekends  in  Plattsburgh  June  7-8,  and  the  event is promising to be huge. City  Hall  Place  will  be  closed  off to traffi c and will play host to  local  artists,  authors  and  musicians, all brought in with the help  of  the  North  Country  Cultural  Center for the Arts, ROTA Gallery,  Vision  2  Action  and  Adirondack  Young Professionals. It all starts at the Strand Theater  from 11–12:30 p.m. Friday with a  free  workshop  hosted  by  Cirque  Éloize. Cirque  Éloize  is  a  world-renowned group of performers who  specialize in combining circus arts  with music, dance and theater. Although  not  offi cially  part  of  First  Weekend,  the  event  underscores  the  importance  of  having  arts  in  a  community  and  gives  participants  a  chance  to  interact  with a  unique blend of performers.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

People for Positive Action behind effort


By Claire Durham

Darlene Waldrone, of People for Positive Action, was one of several volunteers who broke ground on the Saranac Riverbank Park Saturday, June 1. The group will meet every Saturday at 2 p.m. through fall to work on the park. The public is welcome to join in.

PLATTSBURGH—  In  the  hot,  humid  weather  of  Saturday,  June 1, several people gathered in the shade of a tree behind the  Farmer’s Market pavilion downtown.  A slight breeze picked up as they waited for the rest of their  group to show.

Bike Fest returns to Whiteface Mtn. Father’s Day weekend WILMINGTON — The fourth annual Bike Fest calls to cyclists to put the pedal to the mountain and enjoy a weekend of family fun and activities at Whiteface Mountain. The Wilmington Whiteface Bike Fest will begin on June 14 through June 16 for a weekend with a mix of uphill, downhill, road bike, mountain bike, serious competition and include an array of family fun activities and demonstrations to bring everyone to their pedals. The event was born after the success of another Whiteface bike program, the Uphill Race. Michelle Burns, Operations Manager for Whiteface Visitors Bureau, said they wanted to broaden the event to be more inclusive to not just athletes from outside the area but as a way to invite locals to enjoy the festivities. “We started small with the first event and we just kept adding to it as more and more people have come to be a part of it. This event is showing people that Wilmington is the biking capital of the Adirondacks,” said Burns. “We want the locals to come out see we have a lot for everyone to enjoy from small kids to the avid biker.” The weekend will begin with Jump Jams with stunts, jumps and tricks at the Wilmington Bike Park on Park Road, where there will be professional stunt performances by Elias Ingram and other pro pump track riders, Taylor WrightSanson will perform unicycle theatrics on the dirt course, and Sam Perkins will show off his mastery in bike acrobatics. “We want to show off some of our local talent and show kids how to have fun in their own backyards with their bikes riding around in the dirt,” said Burns. “It should be a really fun time for everyone to see it.” After the Jump Jams, the party moves to the Cloud Spin Lounge at the Whiteface Ski Centerwhere the festivities continue with the third annual welcome party that will include giveaways, live music with a DJ and the infamous “Best Calves of Wilmington Contest.” “Everyone in the room will be checked out for the contest. We have the most fun at that event and we give out an award for the party member with the best calves,” said Burns. The winner of the contest will have their name memorialized on a one of a kind trophy. The tro-

phy, made by Bike Fest committee member Bob Hockert pays homage to the movie a Christmas Story with a mannequin leg dressed in stockings under a lamp shade with a base made out of bike gears. “I don’t know what you would call it, its a really fun thing to see and I guess we can call it a trophy,” said Burns. On Saturday, June 15, the 12th Annual Whiteface Mountain Uphill Bike Race will begin at 8 a.m. This road race up the Whiteface Moun-

tain Veterans Memorial Highway is part of the BUMPS (Bike Up the Mountain Point) series. The series comprises of ten races on mountains of the Northeast, on courses of varying lengths and pitches. New this year will be a two-day open market Vendor Village on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the base of Whiteface Mountain. The vender village will be open to the public at no admission cost. An Air Bag Free Fall, which is set up at White

Face for athletes to improve freestyle and freeride skills by jumping to the air bag will be available for the visiting public to purchase passes for. The gondola will also be running for visitors to purchase boarding passes to ride to the top of the mountain. Races for Saturday will include the country races and group rides, poor man’s downhill, riders will be picked up by shuttle and driven to the trial that will lead riders down to the Wilmington Town Beach where a party awaits. “This event is no longer just about the bike races but has grown to be something more,” said Burns. “It’s really a place for everyone to come and enjoy, see athletes perform, walk around our vendor village to see some of our great local businesses and services and really for everyone to have fun.” Guests can wind down with a Beach Party starting at 5 p.m. with live music, food and fun. Infamous Adirondack based-band Lucid will perform for the party till 8 p.m. and food will be available from Liquids and Solids of Lake Placid and Propers Food Stand. On Sunday the 3rd Annual Wilmington/ Whiteface 100k Mountain Bike Race will take place with a shotgun start at 7 a.m. The 100k race is a qualifier for the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race. The WW100 both begins and ends at Whiteface Mountain, with a 69-mile long race that will take competitors up and down and twisting through jeep and gravel roads, backcountry trails and climbs that measure more than 750 meters each. All of this ends with a pair of 350-foot climbs at Whiteface ahead of the finish line. Burns said cyclists who may not be ready for the full WW100 can also compete in the newly-added 50K event, and a newly-established TEAM class which will consist of two-member teams each riding the 50K course. Registration is now available for the Wilmington Whiteface 100K. The entry fee is $70 for solo riders, $120 for two-person relay teams and $105 for a tandem bike. “There is no weekend like it, Bike Fest is truly something we offer for everyone,” said Burns. “It’s a great community event and we want to show people what a great community we have.” For more information about the weekend’s events, and to register contact the Whiteface Region Business & Tourism Center at 946-2255 or email:

Cuomo touts Tax-Free NY during address at SUNY Plattsburgh By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH —  Gov. Andrew  Cuomo  visited  Plattsburgh  State  University  College  on  Thursday,  May  30  to  tout  his  new  “Tax-Free NY” program. The  stop  was  part  of  a  statewide  tour  to  promote  the  plan,  which  Cuomo  hopes  will  be  signed  into  law  before  the  state’s  legislative session ends in three weeks. If enacted, the program would create a 10-year, tax-free zone  on  and  around  SUNY  campuses  in  Upstate  New  York  for  new  businesses and their employees. “Tax-free  means  just  that,”  Cuomo  said.  “No  business  taxes,  no  sales  tax,  no  property  tax,  no  franchise  fees  and  no  income  tax.” The proposal would allow employees in the tax-free zones to  avoid state income tax for five years, or up to 10 years for certain  income eligible individuals. Eligible tax-free zones would include up to 200,000 square feet  adjoining each campus. Cuomo added there are 64 SUNY schools in New York State,  55 of which are located upstate, and said 97 percent of the state is  within 20 miles of a SUNY campus. SUNY campuses do not pay property taxes, but private landowners located in Tax-Free NY  zones would still pay property  taxes. To be eligible, businesses must create new jobs and can include  start-ups and businesses coming in from out of state. Existing  businesses  cannot  transfer  to  tax-free  zones  to  reap  the benefits. “This is about creating new jobs,” Cuomo said. “I’ve talked to  people  who  have  left  New York  and  they  all  told  me  the  same  thing—they  didn’t  leave  because  they  wanted  to,  they  left  because they had to. We’re chasing people away.” Three  million  square  feet  of  private  university  space,  and  20  “strategically  located”  state  owned  properties,  including  closed  prisons  such  as  Lyon  Mountain  Correctional  Facility  in 

Sousie gets first win at Airborne PLATTSBURGH —  Chris  Sousie  of  Plattsburgh  held  off  defending  J&S  Steel  Sportsman  Modified  champion  Nick  Heywood  to  win  the  25-lap  feature  on  Loreman’s  Screen  Printing Night at Airborne Speedway.   Sousie  was  well-positioned  to  take  the  lead  after  frontrunners  Keith  Pelkey  and  Mike  Phinney  collided  on  the  backstretch  and ended up against the billboard barriers.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo touted his new “Tax-Free NY” program at Plattsburgh State University College on Thursday. Dannemora and Camp Gabriels in Franklin County, are also included in the proposed plan. When  combined,  Cuomo  said  Tax-Free  NY  zones  would  encompass  120  million  square  feet,  greater  than  the  eligible  commercial space in San Francisco and Philadelphia combined.  Cuomo called the proposal a “game changer that could change  the curve and trajectory of economies around New York state.” “You never solve a problem that you aren’t willing to admit,”  Cuomo said. “The New York State economy has been suffering  for 30 years. This is one of the worst states in the nation when it 

  It  was  Sousie’s  first  Sportsman  Modified  win  at  Airborne.  Travis  Bruno  of  Morrisonville  finished  third  Jake  Branham of  Plattsburgh and Eric Lauziere of Drummondville,  QC completed the top five.

comes to high taxes, and that has been read as anti-business.” If passed, Cuomo said Tax-Free NY will encourage economic  growth and increase enrollment in Upstate SUNY schools. Plattsburgh State President John Ettling agreed.  “The  entire  SUNY  system  was  formed  and  scattered  across  the  state  of  New  York  in  anticipation  of  their  joining  partnership with the private enterprise in their communities to promote  economic development and train the workforce for the future,”  Ettling said. “If this bill is enacted, we’ll be that much closer to  seeing the realization of that half century old dream.”

The Burgh Editorial

It’s June, and it’s itchy


pstate  New  York’s  left  hand  has  been  itching  for  generations  —  jobs  pouring  out  of  the  state,  leaving  the  economy  a  bust.  Gov.  Andrew  Cuomo  hopes  to reverse that trend with his Tax-Free NY program — switching the  itch from the left to right  hand, thus revitalizing the upstate economy by  creating new jobs. Will it work? It’s worth a shot. But the governor should  be honest about the implications  to reduced tax revenues. He says there won’t be  any, but we’re not sure about that. So  the  governor’s  got  this  itch.  He  wants  to  develop tax-free business zones in upstate communities  —  mainly  around  SUNY  campuses.  After all, 93 percent of New Yorkers live within  15 miles of a SUNY Campus, 97 percent within  20 miles. “If  you  took  the  North  Country  out  ...  that  number  would  change  dramatically,”  Cuomo  said during his May 29 Tax-Free NY announcement in Albany.  That’s great news for creating jobs in Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh and Clinton Community  College),  Saranac  Lake  and  Ticonderoga  (North Country Community College).  For  many  of  our  readers,  however,  it  does  nothing.  We’re  not  most  New  Yorkers.  We’re  the 3 percent. Large expanses of the Adirondack  Park  contain  communities  more  than  20  miles  from a SUNY campus.  With  blackflies  vastly  outnumbering  residents  here  in  the  sticks,  the  governor  should  also  develop  an  economic  development  program  for  the  3  percent.  Something  more  than  buying private land, adding it to the state Forest Preserve and promising economic development in the wake of these multi-million-dollar  land deals. Tourists who visit the wild lands —  mostly  pork  ’n’  beaners  who  stay  in  tents  and  bring  their  own  food  —  have  little  impact  on  the local economy. They may buy bug dope at  Hoss’s Country Corner in Long Lake, but that’s  not job creation. Luckily,  the  governor  has  made  inroads  in  the  Adirondack  Park.  He  genuinely  likes  it  here. He’s setting up the Adirondack Challenge  event in Indian Lake in July, promoting the Adirondack Park through I Love New York. We’re  wholeheartedly  behind  this  event  and  thank  him  for  his  support  and  attention.  But  that’s  still not job creation. When  the  governor  made  his  Tax-Free  NY  announcement,  he  said,  “You  can’t  do  more  than this,” meaning the state can’t do more than 

freeing businesses from all state taxes for a limited amount of time — 10 years for sales, property,  and  business/corporate  taxes.  “You  can’t  go lower than zero.” And employees would be  exempt from paying income taxes for five years.  The  goal  is  to  set  up  tax-free  communities  that  promote  entrepreneurship  and  job  creation.  But  we  don’t  like  the  time  limit  for  the  tax  exemption.  What  happens  after  10  years?  Do  the  businesses  close  shop  or  simply  move  to a state that’s tax-friendly more than 10 years? And  while  the  state’s  budget  director  says  there  is  “no  cost”  to  the  state,  meaning  there  is no out-of-pocket expense, there is most definitely a cost when you don’t collect taxes. We’ve already seen what happens when revenue falls short of expectations. After the country’s  economic  collapse  and  federal  bailout  of  Wall Street firms in 2008, many financial institutions were paying a lot less in state taxes. And  that  reduction  in  tax  revenue  led  to  a  budget  deficit reaching $15 billion for the state. We’re not saying these tax-free zones will result  in  a  $15  billion  budget  shortfall,  but  there  will most likely be some reduction.  When there’s a reduction in sales tax, government agencies that reap the benefit of those taxes  need  to  make  up  for  the  shortfall:  the  state,  counties and towns in some instances.  What  happens  when  businesses  don’t  pay  property  taxes?  It  means  higher  taxes  for  the  other  property  owners.  Shouldn’t  the  state  be  generating  economic  development  that  adds  businesses to the tax rolls instead of taking them  off? That’s why there’s a stigma for having taxexempt properties in town ... no revenue. In this  tax-cap era, this could make balancing budgets  even harder for some communities and school  districts. Many are already cutting jobs.  Details, such as eligibility requirements, still  need  to  be  worked  out  for  Tax-Free  NY.  How  will the state measure the 1-mile radius around  SUNY campuses? As the crow flies?  So  what  does  the  State  Legislature  do  with  this “game changer,” as Cuomo calls it? “It can  only  be  good,”  he  said.  We’re  not  totally  convinced yet, but we don’t have any better ideas.  We’re  asking  our  state  legislators  to  ask  the  governor tough questions and get some honest  answers before casting their votes on this program. Don’t get caught up in the hype and the  promise of new jobs. There is a cost here. And  please talk to your constituents before scratching Andrew Cuomo’s latest itch.  „ Denton Editorial Board

The Lester Family Circus came to Plattsburgh By Shaun Kittle

PLATTSBURGH— There are art openings, and then there are  events. When the Lester Family Circus puts a show together, it’s the  latter.  The walls in the ROTA Gallery are always adorned with artwork,  but  on  Friday,  May  31,  the  space  was  nothing  short  of  a  spectacle. Brightly  colored  ribbons  hung  from  the  ceiling  and  crisscrossed the walls.  Strange  relics  ,  like  a  dried  alligator  head  and  a  bone  xylophone, decorated table tops.

First weekends

Continued from page 1 As a follow-up, the NCCCA will host  a free evening of flag monoprinting on  Friday  from  5–7  p.m  to  help  families  prepare  for  Flag  Day,  which  is  Friday,  June 14. A series of events will take place Friday night, and 10 percent coupons will  be made available and can be redeemed  at participating businesses on Saturday  from 2–5 p.m.

There was even a popcorn machine, cotton candy, circus peanuts, live music and fire—all of the makings of a good circus. And,  of  course,  the  Lester  Family—sisters  Ashley,  Amanda  and  Courtney  Lester,  and  friends  Elliot  Daugherty  and  Kate  Bourgeois—were also there with a selection of their artwork. The Lester Family held their first circus at the old ROTA gallery space and drew a crowd of about 250 people. The latest Lester Family Circus also drew a crowd, including  musicians and poi fire dancers. “We don’t like to call this an opening because we want people  to  experience  why  art  is  important,”  Daugherty  said.  “It’s  because of community relations, because of personal relationships  and new friendships.  Daugherty has installation work on display, as well as some of  his pen and ink drawings, which he said are his specialty. The pieces differ in both size and appearance, but they are all  designed to influence discussion.

On  Saturday,  a  ROTA  Gallery-organized art walk will take place throughout the day at participating businesses,  as will a series of family-friendly events  and performances.  Quartetto  Gelato,  a  musical  quartet  whose  repertoire  includes    classical  masterworks,  operatic  arias,  tangos,  gypsy and folk songs, will be performing  at  7  p.m.  at  the  Strand  Theater  on  Saturday,  and  the  Greater  Adirondack  Ghost  and  Tour  Company  will  also  be  giving tours throughout the weekend.

On  Saturday,  June  8,  Knicks  City  Dancer  Amanda Eve will host two dance clinics at Center Stage Plattsburgh. Heather Van Arsdel, who was a Knicks City  Dancer  for  six  years,  opened  the  Center  Stage  Plattsburgh dance studio in 2011. “The two clinics are divided up by age, and  it’s to showcase the choreography that the girls  perform  at  Madison  Square  Garden  during  games,  teach  them  how  to  perform  to  a  large  crowd,  and  to  teach  them  jazz  and  hip  hop  choreography  that’s  actually  performed  on  a  court,” Van Arsdel said.  The fi rst session of the day is a junior class for  ages 6–12 and will run from 1–2:30 p.m. The second session is for dancers aged 13 and  older and will run from 2:45–4:15 p.m. Each session will begin with a warm-up and  the fundamentals of jazz and hip hop dancing.

Monarchs released for hospice By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH— On Saturday, June 1, dozens of people released 132 monarch butterflies in Melissa Penfield Park in Plattsburgh  to  celebrate  spring,  happiness,  and  the  delicate  balance  between life and death. The event, which is organized by Hospice of the North Country, made its debut in 2006 as a way to remember lost loved ones. “Everybody grieves differently, but it’s nice to come together  and see nature, and see how the butterfly symbolizes life,” said  Amanda  Bow,  Director  of  Development  and  Communications  for  Hospice  of  the  North  Country.  “That’s  really  what  this  is  about—celebrating life.” Bow said the event has grown throughout the years, and many  members of the community, even those who have never experienced hospice care, now participate. The  butterfly  release  also  gives  people  who  once  had  loved  ones in hospice care a chance to reconnect with hospice staff, including RNs, LPNs and social workers. Some people, like Jackie Cobb, become involved in hospice after seeing it first hand. Cobb said she began volunteering for North Country Hospice  after her father received hospice care in 1993. She  now  works  for  the  organization,  and  participates  in  the  monarch release every year to honor her mother and father. For Maria and Aaron Roth, who participated in the butterfly  release for the first time this year with their children, Quinn and  Cassidy, it seemed like a good way to enjoy the day while supporting a good cause.   “We thought it would make a good family event,” Maria said.  “This will definitely become a tradition.” Hospice of the North Country will be releasing 168 monarchs  at the Malone Memorial Recreation Park in Malone on Saturday,  June 8 at 10 a.m.  Butterflies cost $20 each. The cost covers the expense of the butterfly and the remainder  supports Hospice of the North Country’s projects and bereavement services. To reserve a butterfly, contact Amanda Bow at 561-8465.

Ashley said she usually has an image in mind when she starts  painting, but her twin sister, Amanda, works in a different way. “I  don’t  want  things  to  look  exact,  it’s  more  of  an  emotional  experience than anything,” Amanda said. “It always comes out  completely different from what I think. The emotional aspect of Amanda’s work runs deep—so deep,  in fact, that she can’t bring herself to sell any of her pieces, making the Lester Family Circus II a rare opportunity for the public  to view them.  Amanda’s  images  range  from  an  abstract  row  of  birch  trees  to people. There are no rules when she paints, as long as she feels a connection to the work. “I like to feel that connection, to feel the paint,” Amanda said.  “Sometimes  I  use  my  hands.  Some  of  the  paintings  have  a  lot  more  paint  on  some  of  them.  Those  were  painted  during  more  emotional times.” The  third,  and  youngest,  Lester  sister  is  Courtney,  whose  painting “The Criminal” won Best in Show at the North Country  Cultural Center for the Arts’ High and Middle School Exhibition  in March. “The  Criminal”  is  currently  on  display  at  ROTA,  along  with  about 10 of her other paintings. Being  part  of  the  Lester  Family  is  encouraging  to  her,  and  helps inspire her to keep making art. “It’s  pretty  welcoming  having  other  artists  in  the  family,”  Courtney said. “We’re always encouraging each other.” Courtney’s  primary  interest  lies  in  human  anatomy,  and  she  said that the more she observes, and paints, it, the more she appreciates it. But  her  work  doesn’t  look  like  pages  that  were  torn  from  Gray’s Anatomy. “I  like  to  bring  out  people’s  imaginations,  and  make  them  wonder  what  made  me  think  to  paint  that,”  Courtney  said.  “I  think the paintings speak for themselves.” Kate Bourgeois’ photography speaks for itself, too.

London Live presents This House at LPCA

LAKE PLACID — National Theatre of London Live presents a live broadcast of This House at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, 17 Algonquin Drive, at 7:30 p.m. on June 7. This House retells the hardships endured while the UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it’s a period when votes are won or lost by 1, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. Set in the political engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham’s biting and energetic new play strips politics down to the realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules. Admission is $16 for non-members, $14 for LPCA Members and $10 for students 18 and younger. For more information call 523-2512.
