Potts repeats as Ironman LP champ By Katherine Clark katherine@denpubs.com

LAKE PLACID Ñ The 2013 Ironman fans screamed a familiar name at the finish line as the 2012 winner, Andy Potts, became the first competitor at Lake Placid Ironman to repeat July 29. Potts crossed the finish line at the Olympic Skating rink with a time of 8:43:29 and Jennie Hansen (USA) captured her first Ironman win with a time of 9:35:06 in the 15th year of the Ironman Lake Placid triathlon. “I think it feels a little bit better the second time around,” said Potts. “Any time you can come into a classic venue like Lake Placid and defend the title is certainly one of the highlights of not just my year but my career.” Like last year, Potts led everyone out

of Mirror Lake. This time he swam 46:48 (slower from his 45:10 course record swim in 2012), followed by Hungary’s Balazs Csoke (49:22) and Italy’s Daniel Fontana (49:23). On the bike course, Potts continued to gain momentum and further extended his lead over Fontana and Csoke. He led by 7:21 after 56 miles, and upon completing the 112-mile jaunt in the Adirondacks, he clocked in a 4:48:33 ride and led by 10:39. Taking a generous lead into the run, Potts ran a controlled 3:02:41 marathon capturing the win with a total time of 8:43:29. Fontana finished second in his first Ironman race in North America (8:48:29), and American Ian Mikelson had his best race at Lake Placid going 8:51:07. “This course is tough it really kicked it today but I got the better of it and that feels really good,” said Fontano. “The run

at the end is always hard but this bike course is no joke whatsoever and to be completely honest, I had a tough ride and lost a lot of time coming up the last climb. I didn’t even know if I was going to be able to run, I just felt so bad. But in the last five miles and I was able to get into a rhythm and run.” Csoke (HUN) 8:55:55, and Ryan Cain (CAN) with a time of 8:55:57 rounded out the top five. Potts and Fontano have said they will meet again in Hawaii. In the women’s race, American Katy Blakemore set the pace for the field on the swim. The Denver native completed the swim in 52:05, 12 seconds ahead of fellow American Dede Griesbauer, 3:13 ahead of Australian Carrie Lester, and 11:12 ahead of Hansen. CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

monies. One of the hottest bands in the Adirondacks, Spring Street features Val Rogers incredible vocals over an instrumental section that gets you moving at every show. Bill Billerman is on Lead and Backing Vocals, Mandolin, Electric & Slide Guitar, Mick Changelo on Bass, String Bass, and Ed Schaum on Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals.

About his music Larry states, “a mix of country blues, blues, American Roots music- I like to write songs which tell a story- I’ve been very influenced by the group of musicians I met while living in Woodstock, NY , in the 70’s and then in Texas where I spent some time after Woodstock.”

Paul Smith’s College to bolster its fire safety efforts for students on campus PAUL SMITHS — Paul Smith’s College will hire a trained fire safety officer and staff a 24-hour dispatch center on campus, bolstering the institution’s ability to respond to emergencies. The additions will allow the college to provide the first response to most fire alarms on campus, reducing the burden on the Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department. The plan is scheduled to take effect before students arrive for the new academic year in August. It settles litigation between the college and the Town of Brighton regarding a fire-alarm law enacted in 2009. “By improving our ability to respond to on-campus fire alarms, we’ll be able to investigate incidents within a matter of minutes – providing an extra layer of safety and protection to the campus community,” said Philip Fiacco, director of campus safety and emergency management at Paul Smith’s College. “It also means that we can provide some relief for the volunteer firefighters we rely on to handle seri-

ez

ous fire emergencies.” In recent years, the college has provided a first response to some alarms triggered in residence halls. Once the new plan takes effect, campus safety officials will respond to all single alarms and determine whether additional assistance is needed. Safety officials will evacuate affected areas as part of the response. Local fire officials will continue to be notified of fire alarms triggered outside of residence hall rooms and have the opportunity to respond if they wish. If multiple alarms are triggered simultaneously in the same building, the department will respond automatically. “I’m happy that all of us took the extra time to study the issues, discuss the various circumstances and look for common points we could all agree on,” said Town of Brighton Supervisor Peter Shrope. “The solution we agreed to after 30 months of good-faith negotiations promises to be a win-win for everyone.” The college’s new fire-safety officer will be responsible for conducting fire-safety

training for the campus community and designing programs to reduce unnecessary alarms. Over the past several years, the college has already implemented several ways of doing that; the fire department responded to campus an average of 2.3 times a month between June 2012 and May 2013, compared to 5.7 times a month between June 2009 and May 2010. “I am very happy that the college and town have come to an agreement to the avoidable alarm law issues,” said Paul Smiths-Gabriels Volunteer Fire Department Chief Roger Smith. “I feel the additional campus safety officers will be a good solution to keeping down the number of responses by the fire department to unnecessary alarms on campus, while not jeopardizing the safety of the students or faculty.” The 24-hour dispatch post is a new addition to campus. At present, a dispatcher is on duty during the business day; calls go directly to campus safety officers during overnight hours.

New York State increases penalties for distracted drivers ALBANY — Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that new and increased fines for distracted driving violations, which includes texting-while-driving or using an electronic handheld device while driving, are effective today. These new fines were passed as part of the 2013-14 State Budget. They are part of the Governor’s continuing efforts to prevent distracted driving and make the state’s roads and highways safer for New Yorkers. “Distracted driving has become a frightening epidemic on our roadways, and fines are an important tool to punish and prevent this reckless behavior,” Cuomo said. “Combined with stronger penalties on your license and increased enforcement, these increased fines will send a tough message to all drivers that distracted driving is a serious problem with serious consequences. Using a multi-pronged approach to combat this dangerous habit will make drivers think twice before using their cellphones behind the wheel. As New York’s law enforcement patrols our highways and roads this summer, we are warning drivers: don’t text-and-drive or you will pay for it.” As of today, for distracted driving violations that occur on or after

July 26, there are new minimum fines and higher maximum fines. For a first offense, the minimum fine is $50 and maximum fine increases to $150. For a second offense committed within 18 months, the minimum fine is $50 and the maximum fine increases to $200. For a third or sub-

Timothy Sellati joins Trudeau faculty SARANAC LAKE — The Trudeau Institute has announced the appointment of Timothy J. Sellati as an associate member of the faculty, effective July 27. Sellati, an expert in a number of microbial diseases is presently associate professor in the Center for Immunology and Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College. Sellati earned a B.A. in biology from Dowling College in 1985 and a Ph.D. in cellular and developmental biology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1996. He began postdoctoral training in 1996 at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and completed his training in 1999 at the University of Connecticut Health Science Center. After joining the Center for Immunology and Microbial Disease at Albany Medical College in December 2000, Dr. Sellati was promoted in 2005 to associate professor and earned tenure in 2010. During both his graduate and postdoctoral training, Sellati studied host responses to the spirochetal pathogens

Timothy Sellati Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi and Treponema pallidum, the causative agents of Lyme disease and syphilis, respectively. The major focus of his laboratory is to delineate the role of CD14 and Toll-like receptor 2 signaling in innate immunity to B. burgdorferi and Francisella tularensis,

the causative agent of tularemia (“rabbit fever”) and a CDC Category A biological threat agent. Sellati serves as immunology scientific councilor for the International Endotoxin and Innate Immunity Society and is past president of the eastern New York branch of the American Society for Microbiologists. He recently received a notice of award for a $2.92 million grant over five years (2013-18) from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The funds will be distributed among the three principal investigators listed on the grant – Dr. Edmund J. Gosslin, Dr. Karsten R.O. Hazlett (both of Albany Medical College) and Dr. Sellati. “We are delighted that Tim Sellati will be joining our faculty,” said Dr. Ronald H. Goldfarb, President, Director and CEO of the Trudeau Institute. “With their focus on a number of diseases not currently being studied at Trudeau, including tularemia, Tim’s laboratory team will be a great addition to the Institute,” he added.

sequent offense committed within 18 months, the minimum fine is $50 and the maximum fine increases to $400. These fines are a part of the Governor’s ongoing efforts to fight distracted driving, an issue that affects public safety statewide and across the nation. Earlier this year, Governor Cuomo directed the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to implement tougher penalties for distracted driving for all drivers. On June 1, DMV increased the number of points earned against an individual’s driving record upon conviction for texting-while-driving and cell-phone related infractions from three points to five points. On July 1, the Governor signed legislation that he spearheaded creating new penalties for distracted driving for young and new drivers. The new law which was effective immediately imposes the same penalties on drivers with probationary and junior licenses for textingwhile-driving and using a hand-held cell phone that they had received for speeding and reckless driving: 60-day suspensions for first convictions and revocations of 60 days (for junior licenses) or 6 months (for probationary licenses) for subsequent convictions within 6 months of the time a license is restored after suspension. For more information on the State’s cell-phone and texting laws, go to dmv.ny.gov/cellphone.htm.

The best $72,000 we’ll ever spend

E

very public school in every state should employ at least one school resource officer — and that position should be funded by the federal government. It is time we put as much effort into protecting our kids as we do our politicians and airports. And it is time that politicians stop using school shootings to further political agendas like gun control instead of formulating a meaningful plan that might actually stop some of these instances from happening altogether. The answer should begin with a police presence in our schools. Following the Dec. 14, 2012 elementary school shootings in Sandy Hook, Conn. that killed 20 children and six adults, parents of the Ticonderoga school district asked for just that — a full-time police officer assigned to the district. Unfortunately, the Ticonderoga Police Department simply does not have the manpower to fulfill that request. At times, there is only one officer on duty, and having that officer patrolling only the school would not serve the needs of the community as a whole. To the department’s credit, they have agreed to increase patrols at the district’s three schools and will be there during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. That’s a start, as are security upgrades made by area schools such as locating cameras throughout buildings, locking doors and requiring identification to enter during school hours. But is it enough? The answer, is no. We pour billions of dollars every year into homeland security. We place full-body scanners at our airports. We surround our elected officials with nearly impenetrable systems and security details costing taxpayers millions. And yet we can’t afford to protect our kids at school? Why should it be so difficult to protect our nation’s most precious and vulnerable people — our children? Ti PD Chief Mark Johns has the right idea. He suggested a full-time school resource officer be hired and assigned to the school. The officer, Johns said, could serve several purposes, including security for the school as well as keeping a trained professional available in the event of an emergency. “And school resource officers often build a rapport with young people,” he said. “That makes it easier for them to approach police when they have a problem or concern. That can

also help police with investigations.” The hurdle? It would cost $72,000 a year to add a school resource officer. Johns searched for grant money but came up empty-handed. We’re going to go out on a limb here and say the state spent more than $72,000 taxying Gov. Cuomo around in a state police helicopter two weeks ago so he could win his own rafting festival in Indian Lake. Add to that what taxpayers shelled out to protect him while he was here — he had a security detail and entourage — and you could probably pay the salary of a public resource officer for years to come with that kind of money. It’s about priorities, plain and simple. Or should we say lack thereof, and our school kids are getting the short end of the security stick. It is time to put an end to that. If the Obama Administration and our federal lawmakers really want to make a meaningful impact on decreasing the number or severity of school shootings, they should put their money where their mouths are and fund full-time resource officers for every public school in the nation. Do we want shootouts in our schools? Of course not. But these would be professional officers patrolling our hallways, trained to use lethal force only as a last resort when the lives of children are at stake. It could operate much like the Federal Air Marshal Service. The consequence of improperly discharging a firearm on a plane would undoubtedly be a major tragedy — and yet the air marshals, because of their training and equipment, have an impeccable record. We feel properly trained and equipped school marshals could serve in a similar capacity. At the same time, they would be a deterrent to crime, just as air marshals are in our skies. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that bad guys with a gun are more apt to commit a crime where they aren’t going to encounter a good guy with a gun. And, let’s be honest. We’re never going to have total control of all firearms in this nation, and we’re not going to cure every mentally ill individual with a penchant for killing. There is always going to be evil in this world. We spend an incredible amount of money attempting to keep that evil from our airports, train stations, government centers and other places of public assembly. It is time we do the same for our schools. Ñ

Adirondack Made logs ready for the mill! Photo by Rich Redman

American made organic heat

N

o matter where you live, the saying seems to be, “wait a minute and the weather will change.” From the west coast to the eastern Adirondacks, they all say it! The 90 degree steamy days seem to be over, and fall is slowing working its way to our region. It won’t be very long before the winds of winter blow, the temperature will be below zero and we will have something new to complain about. Too hot, too cold; it doesn’t matter. Someone will complain. It’s human nature to complain about nature’s way. I look forward to winter. It’s a time to slow down and enjoy a stack of good books and enjoy By Rich Redman the warmth of a wood stove burning and churning out BTU’s to heat the house. Reading during the summer when there’s work to do, is something I just can’t do. There’s always something to do, like cutting, hauling and stacking firewood during the long summer days. It may be warm today, but you really need to be thinking about getting a load or two of fire wood delivered to your door for tomorrow. Yes, wood is locally produced, organic, renewable and sustainable heat that is in tune with nature. There is nothing like walking into the house after a cold day out in the woods. The hot dry air warms like no other heat. Fire wood from local trees is a renewable resource fuel that when burned, releases carbon monoxide. However, when a tree is cut, new growth starts from the area where the old tree stood and shaded the ground. Through the process of photosynthesis, carbon is then taken back out of the atmosphere, and utilized by the growing trees. There is a natural balance between what is released and what is stored if a woodlot stays a woodlot. Flipping a switch and letting the oil burner make my heat is not what I like for many reasons. One of which is, that stored carbon burned as oil, that was made eons ago is released and the balance of stored carbon versus released, is broken. When we burn fuel oil and gas along with a list of other things that release carbon we are releasing more carbon than we store, and that is where the problem is. Secondly, when we have acres and acres of unmanaged woodlands around us and we heat with oil produced in some foreign nation, well that really doesn’t make much sense to me. We transport oil from a country 1,000 miles away to heat our homes when all we have to do is look out the window and see thousands of acres of potential fuel if managed properly. Not only would we get fuel, we can create wildlife habitat, have managed sugar bushes, and other fruit and nut tree crops. I support the oil companies enough when I fill my car and truck with gas. I really don’t want to spend all my money on foreign fuel when I can spend it on Adirondack, organic, locally grown heat. With the proper woodstove and chimney setup, you can enjoy wood heat in your house and know that you are supporting locally grown fuels and businesses. Whether you get cord wood delivered or have a wood pellet stove, you are spending your hard earned money locally. That is important in keeping an Adirondack community alive. Far too many small businesses have left or gone out of business because of the lack of community support. Many Adirondack communities are based on agriculture and forestland ownership. Keeping them profitable helps keep communities thriving. We have far too many empty store fronts and vacant buildings in our area. It’s easy to blame Walmart or some other box store, but it all boils down to the consumer. You make the final decision where to buy. I am not opposed to “wally world” or McDonald’s, or any other business trying to make a living. I shop at some of these places but I also try to buy from farmers markets, local fire wood suppliers and local lumber yards. Our society is leaning toward locally produced vegetables and grass-fed meats, as well as other products. That is good. We need to do more though! We must support our local industry by purchasing local agriculture and forest products. We need to look at more locally produced organic heat for our homes, schools, and business’s. Economics plays a serious part in purchasing fuel and it seems every time we lean toward an alternative fuel, the price of oil drops just enough to make the alternative, a non-alternative. In the long run though, we really need to think about what will be stable for our area. Forest products and agriculture are our key industries so let’s support them as much as possible. Buy your food from a local farmer, buy your fire wood or wood pellets from local suppliers and build as much as possible from local woods. Have a local carpenter or cabinet maker build your next piece of furniture. Let’s keep the money close to home where the profits will improve our neighborhoods and our children’s lives. Let’s not send our hard earned dollars elsewhere! Make sure you have a proper woodstove and chimney that meets local codes and is inspected before you start to heat with your local organic woods. Modern stoves have fewer emissions than old styles and are very efficient for heat production. Work with a chimney sweep to maintain your chimney and stove so you and your family stay safe.

Conservation

Conversations

Ribbons of fog often cap the summit of Whiteface Mountain during the early morning hours. The sight offers a reminder of what’s to come as the summer season segways towards autumn. The Adirondack summer has always been a dwarf on the annual calendar.

Ahhh…summertime, and the livin’ is easy

A

s I grow older, it seems the summer season has become much more fleeting than it was in my younger days, when the prospect of returning to a classroom was a constant lingering threat. While I understand the rationale behind the concept that a person’s perception of time is altered as they age — It is an odd fact that while some summer days appear to last forever; the weeks and months seem to move faster than a dollar sign at the gas pump. The inescapable truth is the duration of our days is extended as a result of the quantity of activities we manage to pack into them. A long day may include a morning hike, some swimming, some diving, a lazy canoe float and a bit of casting even if the fish don’t want to cooperate. But when the fish do decide to provide a bit of entertainment, time stops for a while; or it can even allow one to regress. I’ve known many men, and ladies for that matter, who are reduced to the state of giddy, little kids at the mere shadow of a trout approaching their fly. This pattern of activity based regression is in fact the definition of recreation, which when broken down is simply to recreate, our spirit, our enthusiasm, and our reasons for living. Some folks have a need to achieve in order to get their dose of recreation, of which the recent Ironman USA is a classic example. Run, bike, and swim is fine for some, while many others prefer to drink, grill and snooze. To each his own, sport. I’ve also noticed the lack of time I’ve spent in camp this summer has had a drastic effect on my understanding of the season. There have been far fewer nights spent around the fire, watching the sparks intermingle with a million stars overhead, as fireflies continue to blink and flicker off and on in the pitch blackness. The rivers have remained quite high this season, and their waters have been rather cool. However, lake temperatures are now comparable to bathwater and the rope swings have been busy. The night skies have remained as brilliant as I can ever recall, and the morning’s fog equally as thick. The recent cool nights have offered up numerous examples of nature’s extraordinary ribbony masterpieces, which have been as fascinating to view from the valleys as from the mountaintops. Such scenes are always compounded by the appearance of a full moon, a brilliant sunset or other natural attractions. Although autumn will always remain my favored season for a number of good reasons, summer chases right along in a hard second. It is a youthful season, and one of the most fleeting available in our little neck of the woods. Although it brings with it a myriad of inconveniences which include muggy heat, rain, bugs, clogged roads and busy streets; the summer always serves to brings back our youth. And I wouldn’t trade that for all the Bluebird days of autumn, winter or spring combined. Where have the butterflies gone? For me, one of the surest signs of the summer season has always been the preponderance of butterflies in our backyard, which is overgrown with a thick swath of milkweed plants. To date, I have not witnessed a single monarch in the air or on the plants. Nor have I seen a single yellow swallowtail butterfly, sipping water along the edge of any stream, brook, creek, river or seep. Often, while wading the Boquet over the years, it has

become quite common to encounter a rabble of swallowtails gathered along a wet riverbank. It is always a joy to witness a rabble take to the air, and float along gently on the air currents of a river corridor. I never realized how much I enjoyed the sight, until it’s been gone. I do hope it is just a cycle with the swallowtails. However, the dire situation of the monarchs may be a far different matter. Entomologists have discovered a dramatic drop in monarch populations all across North America. It is believed to be the result of last year’s combination of severe weather events, which included droughts, high winds, heavy rains and a prolonged cold snap during the spring migration. As a result of last summer’s droughts and the spring season’s rains, the massive monarch migration, which extends from Mexico to Canada, was decimated. According to various reports, there is a very real possibility that no monarchs will be found in the northern air this summer, which would be very sad. However, if you do need to see some monarchs, I highly recommend The Wild Center’s newest movie, “Flight of the Monarchs,” which documents the popular butterfly’s incredible annual journey from the mountains of Mexico to the fields of North America. It is available daily at 11 a.m., noon and 4 p.m. The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, aka The Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, showcases the natural world of the region with a quality comparable to the Adirondack Museum’s display of the human history. They are two facilities that make me wish for more rainy days. “Normally we have hundreds of millions of Monarchs in Quebec and Eastern Canada, and now we have 90 percent of that at least,” noted Montreal Insectarium’s entomologist, Maxim Larrivée in a recent interview that was published online. In fact, monarch populations have continued to suffer a severe drop in population during the past seven years, with as few as one-fifteenth the numbers that were in the air just two decades ago. The familiar black and orange species has been in serious decline for a while, and if populations continue the downward spiral; monarchs may no longer be a familiar fixture of the North Country summer.

Students from the Lake Placid Varsity Club recently presented a $776 donation to the Merrill Oncology Center at Adirondack Medical Center. Kendra Manning, left, Brooke Reid, Haley Brandes, Garrett Woodruff and Andrew Meister presented the check to Certified Nurse Practitioner Mia Ross and Registered Nurse Bill Chamberlain. Mia and Bill are also certified oncology nurses.

Lake Placid students donate to Merrill Oncology Center

SARANAC LAKE — A gift from Lake Placid High School students will help support patients receiving treatment from the Merrill Oncology Center at Adirondack Medical Center. As part of the “Coaches vs. Cancer” initiative through the American Cancer Society, studentathletes with the Lake Placid Varsity Club raised $776. Since the students wanted the funds to stay local, the Merrill Oncology Center was an obvious choice for their generous act. In addition to a range of specialized care, AMC offers supportive services free of charge for patients and their families coping with cancer treatment. For example, the “Strength for Healing” program provides Guided Imagery and Gentle Restorative Yoga to patients and their families to strengthen both the mind and body. The “Coaches vs. Cancer program” empowers coaches, their teams, and communities to join the fight against cancer by participating in awareness efforts, advocacy programs, and fundraising activities. Guided by the Coaches vs. Cancer Council, participating coaches help people with cancer today and to find cures to end the disease tomorrow, and have raised more than $87 million to help the American Cancer Society’s mission.

LAKE PLACID — Wonderful folk music from a longforgotten collection will come to life at the “Songs to Keep” concert at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts on Wednesday, Aug. 21, at 8 p.m. Some of the North Country’s favorite folk musicians will perform music from Marjorie Lansing Porter Collection, gathered by a lively historian who traveled across northern New York recording songs on her trusty SoundScriber. The concerts are part of an exciting and far-reaching project that includes a CD of songs from the collection recorded by contemporary artists, a song book with music, lyrics, and historical information, and a Mountain Lake PBS documentary. The second in a series of “Songs to Keep” concerts hitting stages across the Adirondack North Country, the Lake Placid concert will feature the dynamic duo of Bill Smith and Don Woodcock along with some wonderful French Canadian singing courtesy of Bernard Ouimet. “Longtime Adirondack folksinger Dan Berggren will be joined by his young friend Alex Smith, an up-and-coming singer songwriter from Long Lake,” concert host and music scholar Dave Ruch said. “Celia Evans is coming along to perform the opening track from the CD, her lovely version of the old lumberman’s song ‘Cutting Down the Pines.’” Ruch will be joining Jamie Savage and Sue Grimm for a set of songs and lively instrumental dance tunes collected by Mrs. Porter. Tickets for the concert are $15 and can be purchased at the LPCA box office or online atlakeplacidarts.org. The concert begins at 8 p.m. TAUNY staff and Board members, along with several people involved with the Porter project, will gather at Desperados (across the street from LPCA) at 6:30 p.m. for a pre-concert reception. An exhibit exploring the fascinating life and work of Marjorie Lansing Porter will be on display in LPCA lobby before the concert and during intermission.

Letters to the Editor

‘Speak out’ for babies

To the Valley News: The editorial “Speak Out For Those Who Cannot” had me fooled. I had imagined the editorial board was going to be brave enough to discuss abortion. My bad! Instead, the opinion piece was about the poor care of cats & dogs at a pet store in Plattsburgh. Fair enough. However, I don’t think you’d ever read an opinion - either way - that touches on unborn babies being slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands each year in the USA. It’s the number one cause of death, bar none. The editors lamented the fact that animals can’t speak up for themselves. Babies in the womb can’t either. When you consider that it’s their own mothers who decide to end their precious lives, it’s even harder to comprehend. I for one, hope readers of this paper will someday read and write things in support of baby humans. Jesus, in comparing the birds of the air to a person, asked “Are you not of more value than they?” As humans, we are more valuable than all of the creatures on earth. So choose life, and I mean human life! John P. Sharkey Ticonderoga

Visual services offered

To the Valley News: If you could not see, how would you cook, get dressed or pay bills? Where would you live? How would you emotionally handle the lack of independence, the inability to drive? Hopefully you never have to experience this, but more than likely you, a loved one or friend will. As our population lives longer and diabetes is on the rise, millions of Americans will and do suffer from vision loss and/or blindness. Currently the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. are Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy and Glaucoma. The North Country Association for the Visually Impaired (NCAVI) can help. We provide free services to those that are blind, legally blind and visually impaired in Clinton, Essex, Franklin and St. Lawrence counties. Our staff goes into your home, workplace or school to provide education, training and the skills needed to attain and maintain independence. For the elderly, basic, everyday living skills can mean the difference between staying in their own home and being placed in a nursing home. For children, these skills mean a better education, a sense of security at school and a brighter future.

On Aug. 2 NCAVI will be holding its 10th Annual “Golf for Sight” Tournament and Fundraiser at Harmony Golf Club in Port Kent. The proceeds from this event allow us to continue vital services to the visually impaired in our area. You can support our mission by sponsoring the tournament, putting in a team, giving an item for raffles, or by simply donating to NCAVI. For more information please visit our website, www.ncavi.org or contact: jodincavi@gmail. com, 562-2330 or NCAVI, 22 US Oval, Suite B-15, Plattsburgh, NY 12903. Jodi Lattrell-Burns Development Coordinator, NCAVI

Racial code words

To the Valley News: Your viewpoint (Dan Alexander) of July 27 surprises and saddens me. As a journalist, how can you so blithely stereotype an entire race of people? You state “the problem is the never ending violence that young black males inflict against each other daily,” that “black America is murdering itself over drug turf, bruised egos etc.” I am truly astounded that the publisher of a newspaper would make such statements. Since when did violence become only an African-American trait? When did such reasons for violence become assigned only to blacks? And the only time white Americans are affected is when they are “caught in the crossfire.” Whites are only innocent victims, never perpetrators? You state that you think the president was “wrong to inject himself, his perspective.” It would seem that his perspective and life experiences are what white Americans like you, sir, would do well to listen to and try to understand. Trayvon Martin was walking home. George Zimmerman followed him (because he was black and fit your stereotype), carried a gun, got out of his car and confronted him. If Zimmerman had stayed in his car as instructed by police, wasn’t carrying a gun or Trayvon Martin had been white we, like many others, believe that this tragedy would never have happened. Perhaps living in — and writing for — or a rather narrow racial milieu allows you to perceive all young black men as worthy of your stereotype. “Less fortunate urban population?” What, no whites live in cities and are poor? Using these tired old racial code words is lazy journalism and not worthy of the publisher of the Valley News. Jeff and Charlene Kleiman Elizabethtown

Allowed to Fail

M

any things about being a kid today have changed since I was a kid. Parents and teachers no longer employ physical punishments such as hitting with a hand, ruler or object like a belt. So too is gone ear twisting, hair pulling or the other many expressions of physical punishment that were meted out years ago. When I was a kid, we didn’t sit at the table and participate with adults in conversation the way kids do now and many things were held back from us then as certain topics were taboo. These changes, for the most part are probably positive, one change that is not so positive is the enormous pressure kids are under to be successful at everything every time. Growing up there were guys that could take apart anything mechanical and fix it and got positive feedback for what were legitimate skills. Others were already working jobs on farms or in stores and were known as hard workers. Some were good athletes which put a spotlight on them and others were good students and were prized for those skills. There were very few or more likely none, who were outstanding at everything they attempted. I’m not sure that was even an expectation in my younger years. Now, every student or young person must do well at almost everything. There are many well-known examples of people who were failures early on but who later enjoyed outstanding success in their lives. Michael Jordon wasn’t always the greatest basketball player in the world; Abraham Lincoln lost so many elections that he wasn’t even able to be elected dog catcher in his home town and the musical genius Mozart was not seen as any kind of genius initially. In her book The New Psychology of Success, Professor, Carol Dweck explains that “failure is an important part of learning.” Dweck found that there are two possible outcomes from failure, one is that children can become so affected that they become afraid to make further attempts fearing failure or they can realize that failure is part of learning and that these experiences are very valuable.

Dweck found that adults around children can heavily affect how they handle success or failure. For example, Dweck warned that parents who frequently tell their kids how smart they are may foster a, “fixed mindset and it can backfire.” Children become strongly invested in intelligence as part of their core identity and when they fail they can become very insecure about their abilities. “The self-esteem movement almost brained-washed everyone into believing that we can hand our children self-esteem on a platter by telling them they’re great, they’re smart, they’re talented and gifted. It just doesn’t work that way. Actually, those statements often make children more fragile.” Rather parents should praise children for problem solving By Scot Hurlburt skills for the way they approach a difficulty in their lives. Children need praise for effort and the willingness to persist in the face of difficult challenges. Praise for these behaviors can result in a “growth mindset, not a fixed mindset.” A child who persists with a tough task even if they are failing in the moment can build self-esteem on their own while they’re learning new ways of thinking. Dweck suggests that, “process praise” of children between the ages of 1 and three can predict their mindset and desire for challenge five years later. Dweck also encouraged parents that “this kind of mindset can be encouraged at any age.” A fixed mindset undoubtedly limits intellectual growth because the fear of failure embedded in this mindset will discourage intellectual risk taking. Heaps of unearned probably won’t make you a resilient and confident person. For hovering parents, this might be especially good research to consult. Encouraging children to begin to think about the processes associated with problemsolving seems like good, common sense. Talking to children about keeping their fears about failure in check by understanding that they are growing and developing every day and will experience many failures and successes along the way also seems like good common sense. Remember, all kids count.

Ironman

Continued from page 1 Blakemore left T1 with a 16 second lead but Griesbauer quickly got to the front and led the rest of the bike ride. She rode 5:23:02 and entered T2 with a 3:35 lead over Lester. However, with the top ride of the day (5:20:25), Hansen quietly made up ground and was only 8:38 back. While Griesbauer and Lester battled up front, Hansen continued her mission to get to the front. She took the women’s best 3:05:04 marathon to earn her first career Ironman victory in 9:35:06.

We had a lot of blue collar players who wanted to make a name for themselves and the program, and we were led by the legendary Coach Dave Urick. This year we will be playing to honor the career of Coach Urick. He has had a big impact on all of our lives.” Hoya alums will include attackmen Greg McCavera, Andy Flick and Pete Velepec, defensemen Greg Papa, Chris Tully and Brian Samson, middies Greg Lawler, Mike

WESTPORT — Champlain Area Trails has announced the opening of its second Photo and Caption Contest titled, “Picturing New York’s Champlain Valley.” This is the latest in a series of writing and photo contest CATS has held over the last couple years to promote tourism and the valley’s outdoor recreation-based economy. “We are pleased to hold this new contest which is a little different from the last one, because we will award prizes in three categories,” said Chris Maron, CATS’ executive director. “This should better illustrate the activities to enjoy here and help people decide which photos to enter. Also we want to stress that the caption is as important as the photo—we want pretty pictures and the stories behind those pictures.” Participants can submit photographs in any or all of the following three categories: •Hiking the Trails – Photos of people out on Champlain Valley trails. •Scenic and Nature –Landscapes or nature photos in the Champlain Valley. •Towns and Villages – Photos illustrating the charm and beauty of Champlain Valley villages, towns, and businesses. Each category will be awarded two prizes so there will six prizes in total. The Judges First Place winners will each receive a $150 prize. The “People’s Choice” awards for the most online votes will each win $100. The captions should be 100 words or less and can explain the story behind the photo. The CATS photo contest, underwritten with a grant from the J.C. Kellogg Foundation, will run through Nov. 30, with the winners being announced by Dec. 31. For more information, please visitchamplainareatrails.com/contest or call 962-2287.

He has successfully competed in many regional, National and International arenas and has performed for the WGBH Celtic Sojourn Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day performances for the last five years In 2011 he was Lumiere in the Boquet River Theatre Festival’s Beauty and the Beast and this year he’ll be participating again as the lead; Harold Hill in “Music Man”.
