By Katherine Clark PLATTSBURGH Ñ Plattsburgh police are asking the public to help in the search for 11 sick and abandoned puppies in the Plattsburgh area. Police believe Michael Staley, husband of Northern Puppies Pet Store owner Tammy Staley, staged a burglary at the Northern Puppies store and abandoned 24 puppies around the Saranac area. Michael Staley admitted to police he staged a burglary at the store, taking the puppies and then abandoning them in wooded areas around Clinton County to avoid paying costly CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

DANNEMORA Ñ Ó Let me introduce you to my Rocket 88. Yes itÕ s great, just wonÕ t wait. Everybody likes my Rocket 88.Ó That song, by Bill Haley and His Comets, may very well have been playing in Clem CoutureÕ s head when he took on the challenge to build a car from scratch, in just seven months, and compete against two other Ò OlÕ SkoolÓ car builders at this yearÕ s Syracuse Nationals car show. He took on that challenge, and won a trophy every bit as unusual as his one-of-a-kind classic hot rod. Ò I was kind of dumbfounded. I was the outsider. The other two cars were nice...good quality work,Ó said Couture from his backyard shop behind his house in Dannemora. The annual Syracuse Nationals is one of the largest car shows on the East Coast. Last year organizers were brain-storming on a way to spur interest in the NationalsÕ Ò OlÕ Skool Roundup,Ó section of the event. The rules were simple: It couldnÕ t be a project already in the works, and it had to run on July 15 at the Nationals. Dubbed Ò The North Country Frenchman,Ó Couture

Strand renovations near completion By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGHÑ Behind the glass doors and past the Italian marble floored lobby, renovations on the Strand Theater are rapidly approaching the finish line. With its $3.6 million renovation 90 percent complete, the Strand will soon be back to its 1924 gilded glory. Only a few finishing touches, and a few more dollars, remain before the grand re-opening next spring. Ò We got a grant; if we raised $75,000 they would give us $75,000, and we did,Ó said Shawna Armstrong, gallery curator and marketing coordinator at the NCCCA Art Center, which oversees the Strand. Ò WeÕ re just waiting for the construction companies to put in their bids (for the final work).” With a dedicated cadre of volunteers and staff working from a limited number of pictures from that period, the StrandÕ s restoration will be historically accurate, with a few exceptions to comply with modern day fire and safety codes. Gone, for instance, will be the standing room area in the back of the lobby. Nearly 100 seats were also lost to the placement of heat, air conditioning and sound systems in the now wider walls, and the fact that modern day seats are wider than they were in 1924. The new Strand will seat just under 500 people downstairs, and another 450 upstairs. The massive Swarovski crystal chandelier, which was donated by Schonbek and hung recently, was re-created without benefit of any photographs. It was constructed from a description found in a local paper from that time period. A massive pipe organ, one of only 160 like it in the world, is currently in Boston being refurbished. One patron alone donated nearly $200,000 to refurbish the organ. The original paint on the theater walls was found to be intact, and hand sculpted accents in the lobby are being painted to match. In fact, the entire paint scheme will be accurate to 1924. If the original silver paint in the theater section had been painted over through the years, Armstrong

said, the project would have taken another full year to complete. There are however drawbacks to an historically accurate building. Ò The problem with the Strand is, because we kept the original historical design, thereÕ s not a lot of storage. A lot of amenities that people are used to, we donÕ t have. We only have four bathrooms with three stalls each for 1,000 people. Unfortunately thatÕ s part of the deal,Ó said Armstrong, adding: Ò We only have one broom closet.Ó While not yet 100 percent done, the Strand is up and running with a slate of upcoming shows. Bluesman Johnny Rawls will be playing the Strand Aug. 16, and numerous other events are slated for the fall. A calendar of upcoming events can be found on the NCCCA Art Center website at The revamped Strand will include performing arts, and a name change to the Strand Center for the Arts, which will include the Arts Education Center, will be made soon. Another successful fundraiser has patrons purchasing their own seat at the Strand, and they will be given advanced opportunities to purchase tickets for upcoming shows. A large number of these seats have already been sold. An intern will be starting in the fall, and will be posting pictures of the past and present, on the theaterÕ s Facebook page, at www.facebook. com/Strand.Plattsburgh.

Champlain Telephone customer appreciation day Held in conjunction with TownWide garage sale. By Shawn Ryan CHAMPLAIN Ñ On Aug. 17, Champlain Telephone Company will hold its annual Customer Appreciation Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is being held in conjunction with the Champlain Town-Wide Garage Sale and the Ò Champlain DayÓ celebration. Offering items donated by their employees, Champlain Telephone will participate in the garage sale, with all proceeds being divided evenly among the libraries located within the Champ-

lain Telephone coverage area. Raffle tickets will also be available throughout the day. Ò Each year we have a committee of our employees that gets together and they decide what charity we would like to support,Ó said Vicki Marking, marketing director for Champlain Telephone. Ò The last couple of years it has been the local food shelf, and that had been very successful.Ó This year the committee decided to support the four public libraries in the Champlain Telephone coverage area: Champlain, Rouses Point, Altona and Mooers. Champlain Telephone collects funds from the sale of the items, plus the sale of raffle tickets for items donated by local businesses, then that amount is typically matched by Champlain Telephone. Those stopping by Champlain Telephone at their Main Street office, where their sale will be held, will also be eligible for

a door prize of a 32-inch flat screen television. Ò This year we have the Champlain Valley Irish Dancers who are performing in the morning at 10:30. Then we have a band, Overdrive, which is playing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. And then there are a variety of events for the kids. We have a bounce house, thereÕ s face painting, rides for the kids in the telephone bucket truck,Ó Marking said. Marking said that they would accept gently used items donated by community members for the sale, except for articles of clothing. Champlain Telephone will also be serving hotdogs and hamburgers from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., free of charge. Ò The only thing that would cost anybody anything would be if they choose to buy raffle tickets to support the libraries. Every coin that is collected that day goes to the local libraries.Ó

NC Volunteer Center to hold recruitment workshop By Katherine Clark PLATTSBURGH Ñ One of the most valuable resources of a community is its volunteers helping to sustain programs that enrich the lives of residents. To harness that energy, the North Country Regional Volunteer Center (NCVC) will host an educational event for organizations to learn how to reach potential volunteers through an online data base on Aug. 29. NCVC, operated by the United Way of the Adirondack Region (UWAR), will host the training event at the Plattsburgh City Li-

Run To Remember slated By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGHÑ The fourth annual Run To Remember Doug Hoffman 5K fun run/walk will be held Saturday, Aug. 17 at 9:30 a.m. at the Plattsburgh Recreation Center on the Base Oval. Prior to the run will be a Ò Brain Buster Bustle,Ó a one mile fun run for kids under 12. Proceeds from the run will benefit the Plattsburgh AlzheimerÕ s Disease Assistance Center. Ò All the proceeds stay locally in the three county area, and itÕ s to help raise awareness for early alzheimers, and to help be vigilant in the prevention and treatment of alzheimers,Ó said run director Debbie Frederick. The Plattsburgh AlzheimerÕ s Disease Assistance Center provides evaluations, education and information for families and people with alzheimers, provides counseling, peer connections, and operates the Third Age Adult Center programs in Clinton, Essex and Franklin county. Pre-registration before Aug. 14 is $10, race day registration is $15. Pre-registration forms are available at the Plattsburgh Recreation Center, or by emailing runtoremember10@yahoo. com. The first 25 people registered will receive a t-shirt. Run-day registration starts at 8 a.m. The Ò Brain Buster BustleÓ starts at 9 a.m., and the 5K run starts at 9:30 a.m. The Run to Remember can be found on Facebook at: 4th Annual Run To Remember Doug Hoffman.

brary, 19 Oak Street, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During the training, participants will learn how to create organizational profiles that illustrate the work of the organization and the desires of its volunteers, said UWAR Director of Development, Kathy Snow. During the event, officials of NCVC will be shown how their website can be used as a tool for recruiting volunteers. The NCVC website,, was launched in June 2012. The NCVC and the website were started thanks to a grant awarded by the State Commission on National Community Service three years ago, Snow said. The online volunteer resource center serves Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties. Snow said the website is a mutually beneficial tool for organizations in need of help and residents looking for a place to help their community. The site can match people with a passion for helping to where they can do the most good. Ò Volunteers can go to the site and type into the keywords, Ô Driver,Õ Ô Animals,Õ Ô YouthÕ or Ô ElderlyÕ and be matched with an organization doing something they are passionate about and where they can really help,Ó said Snow. Ò ItÕ s really good to give back, a lot of people generally donÕ t have the money they might want to give but time is free and can be the most valuable gift someone can offer.Ó The site also registers volunteers and in the session the groups will be shown how to log their volunteerÕ s hours to be run in reports. Ò The grant program was originally launched after a report came out that New York ranked 51st (last) in volunteerism, I donÕ t think that could be true based on our communityÕ s volunteer numbers,Ó Snow said. Ò Through the data base we can teach the different groups how to keep track of the number of volunteers and volunteer hours theyÕ ve accumulated, which can help them when applying for grants.Ó During the session, guests will have the opportunity to get step-by-step instructions using the libraryÕ s computers to register on the website.

Wild Character Snake, Rattle and Roll The Timber Rattlesnake is the Adirondack Park’s only poisonous snake. For a viper, it’s pretty laid back. The rocky highlands above Lake Champlain are the northern extreme of its range, which dips to the Gulf Coast of Texas. Here, it sleeps in, coming out around May, a month after its southern cousins. It stays sleepy for a while, then eventually orders rodents, smaller snakes and amphibians for dinner. Timber rattlers rarely strike at a person unless cornered and usually issue several warning rattles. There are no recorded deaths from wild rattlesnake bites in the Adirondacks. Still an Endangered Species, it’s illegal to harm one, so don’t even think about it. Another reason we’re so...

Wild about the Park

Ò Our website has been up a year, we are going to show the people who come to the event how to create their online profile and explain their volunteer needs in a creative way,Ó said Snow. Ò WeÕ re like a matchmaker for agencies that are in desperate need and volunteers that want to help.Ó The training event is open to community organizations, agencies, potential volunteers and veteran volunteers and municipalities. Included in the training will be a focus on recruitment, orienting, supporting, evaluating and saluting (ROSES) volunteers. Snow said with state budget cuts many not-for-profits are having to do more work with less people. Ò Volunteers are very valuable, especially now,Ó Snow said. “These agencies need help and people can find something matching their passions and values on the site.Ó There will be a free lunch served while discussing the volunteer data base and volunteer recruitment strategies. Those interested in participating in the program are asked to register for the training by Aug. 26, by calling the UWAR at 5630028 or email Kathy Snow ( 53211

Opinion North Countryman Editorial

County fairs an important part of summer


he North Country is now in the midst of the annual tradition that is all about fried dough, Ferris wheels and derby

cars. Counties throughout the state are holding their annual county fairs and festivals throughout the months of July and August. Clinton County and Essex County have already wrapped up their shows for 2013, while Franklin County and Addison County, Vt., run through this weekend and the Washington County Fair kicks in on Aug. 19 and runs through Aug. 25. For many communities, the county fair represents the peak of summer activities. The provide a chance for people to come together on an annual basis and provides a chance for young and old to show their crafts and promote their passions. It gives families a less expensive option when it comes to providing entertainment like rides and shows for their children then one might find at other theme parks in the region. Most of the fairs here continue to focus on the world of agriculture, which is making a strong comeback. The world of the local farmer has experienced a renaissance of sorts during the past 10 years, and while there are still plenty of dairy farms with cattle to show and display, local produce farms are also given a county-wide stage to show and sell what they harvest. 4-H and Future FarmerÕ s of America organizations build their entire year around the one week every year that they have to shine at the county fair. Whether it is through competition like horse and cattle shows or displaying what they were able to do as a group, the county fair is the biggest stage that they may have the entire year. Most also conduct a major portion of their fundraising at fairs through raffles and dairy stands, selling milk, ice cream and more to help fair-goers beat the summer heat. Fairs have also become a stage for local talent. From daily concerts for bands and performers, Ò living the dream,Ó to talent search competitions for all ages, fairs give kids and adults alike a chance to step into the spotlight in a fun and family-friendly arena.

At the same time, we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to thank all of those who make these events possible. A lot of times, all fair boards and fair leaders hear is negativity, but we want to commend them for the work they do. While the lay person only sees what happens the couple days before the fair opens through the few days past closing, members of local fair boards and agricultural societies start planning for their week of events almost as soon as the gates close. In Essex County, organizers were talking about midway and fair date options for 2014 two days before the 2013 fair ended. It’s a lot of hard work to find the perfect fit of carnival, entertainment and attractions at the right price, and it seems the only time anyone speaks up is when — in their opinion — that fit is not right. Not us. We want to thank you all for making the summer a little more fun for everyone at prices that are much more reasonable then any other venues can offer. Your hard work and dedication to your county and those you serve is sincerely appreciated. We canÕ t let this editorial end without a quick word out to the Essex County Board of Supervisors. WeÕ ve heard the rumblings about shuttering the 165-year-old fair and they are quite concerning. The Essex County Fair is vital to the core of what makes Essex County a rich tradition of agriculture and conservation. Many people have sacrificed hours, blood, sweat and personal funds to make the fairgrounds and fair what it is today. ItÕ s a tradition that needs to be embraced, not used as a political chip. It should be an event organizations like the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST) promote and support financially as it is part of the region they represent as the county tourism advocate. Let us speak for many who would tell you, we want this fair, we need this fair. So to all, get out and enjoy some time at the fair Ñ any fair Ñ and thank those who work so hard to make them possible.

From Anna: To parents: Though I have never been a parent, what I do know is how my parents responded to death when I was a child and teenager, and how that helped me grieve, heal and ultimately obtain a more logical and in turn spiritual view of death and the grieving process. You should know that itÕ s okay to be sad and to admit that youÕ re sad. Showing your own emotional response in front of your kids allows them to feel secure in their own. What is more important is how you handle your emotions, and choose to cope. The stages of grief are vast - youÕ re allowed to feel angry, youÕ re allowed to be in denial and feel despondent, but acting out on those emotions negatively (being short tempered, drinking too much, etc.) is not okay. Sorrow is different for everyone, and there isnÕ t a right or wrong way to feel when something as monumental as death happens. It takes time, and for some longer than others. Having an open window of communication is imperative, and teaching your kids the proper way to handle these emotions is paramount. To teens: Our family has been through a lot of deaths as well, and almost all of it happened when I was in my late teens. I will tell you this: the extreme emotion you are feeling - it does pass. And when it does, donÕ t feel guilty about it. DonÕ t associate your negative emotion with how much they meant to you, or how close you two were. The fondest memories will stay, and that is what you want to remember. Tears are always welcome,

and may surprise you at times. As humans, weÕ re not always meant to understand our emotions, but rather try our best to turn them into something positive. I like to think that the loved ones IÕ ve lost would like the 25-year-old Anna, and if they could see me now, theyÕ d be proud of me. Make them proud of you too. From Sally: Death is not an easy topic, however it is inevitable for us, and how we deal with it most definitely influences how our children will view it and respond to it. Take into consideration that when you are uncertain or afraid to show your emotions, it causes questions and conflict for those around you. When you have a spiritual belief that defies the finality of death and offers hope, it is easier to discuss. We have experienced two different types of death; one being from old age and the other an unexpected, tragic death. When the body eventually wears out or there is a long and painful illness, we are expecting our loved one to die. This gives us time to be prepared and to have spoken of the upcoming end of life. It doesnÕ t mean that we lose hope for cure, but we shouldnÕ t deny our children this opportunity to prepare for death and actually celebrate that personÕ s life. I always marvel at the way my heart changed from praying for my mother to be cured from cancer at age 51, to praying that she would die and be free from pain. Harder for us to deal with is a tragic death, when there seems to be no immediate explanation. Grief is intense and overwhelming. If we allow ourselves to embrace what we are truly feeling (anger, sadness, loneliness or helplessness), and to speak of that, it is a guide for our children. When speaking to them, donÕ t necessarily expect a response; listening can be enough. Having a physical reaction (headaches, malaise…) is normal, but keeping each other moving with routine is what makes you and your children feel safe and somewhat sane. My best response in light of these tragic deaths is that we support and express sympathy to those at the core of the loss, we show up even when we feel inadequate, and we also know that we donÕ t have the answers as to why this happened. If you have a question, please email us at

An estimated one in three children are overweight or obese according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Physical inactivity has been linked to an increased risk of obesity- related illnesses such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and certain cancers. Type two diabetes and high blood pressure, usually thought of as adult disease, are now showing up in youth. The US Department of Health and Human ServicesÕ Physical Activity Guidelines for children recommend one hour or more of physical activity every day. This hour of active play can be broken up in to smaller segments for families who have a busier schedule, but the key is to find an activity that kids will enjoy doing. Some kids may love to bike around their neighborhoods with their friends, others may enjoy swimming, extreme Frisbee, or just going to their local park to play on the equipment. We all have a role helping our kids grow to be healthy, strong adults. Several of the areaÕ s Recreation departments feature summer activities that kids can get involved with for free, or a small fee. Access to this information can be found by going through your townÕ s website, or the town hall. Parents are an important influence on kids in staying active by modeling appropriate behavior. Going out and playing soccer or staying active with our kids is a great start to lasting memories and healthier bodies for children and adults alike.

To the North Countryman: 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 Ò Golf for SightÓ 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, or contact:, 562-2330 or NCAVI, 22 US Oval, Suite B-15, Plattsburgh, NY 12903.

To the North Countryman: 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 Ò the problem is the never ending violence that young black males inflict against each other daily,” that Ò black America is murdering itself over drug turf, bruised egos etc.Ó 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 Ò wrong to inject himself, his perspective.Ó 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, wasnÕ 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 Ñ and writing for Ñ or a rather narrow racial milieu allows you to perceive all young black men as worthy of your stereotype. Ò Less fortunate urban population?Ó 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 Times of Ti.

Strackville Road in Saranac is one location where volunteers are searching for the 11 puppies that remain at-large. puppies had been recovered. Racicot said the police are asking for people to help find the puppies. Ò Any dog found can only help the investigation, it is illegal to abandon a companion animal like a dog or cat,Ó Racicot said. Ò These animals are so small and canÕ t provide for themselves, weÕ re hoping the public can help.Ó The puppies have been exposed to a number of diseases like Coccidia, Ring Worm and Parvo. These are contagious illnesses to other animals. Dogs can also pass the fungal ring worm infection to people. The dogs that have been found are currently being cared for at EagleÕ s Nest Vet-

erinary Clinic in Plattsburgh. According to police, the puppies may be in one of these general areas: Macomb State Park and surroundings forests and the following roads in the Plattsburgh, Saranac and Redford areas: Norrisville Road, Davis Pond Road, Burnt Hill Road, Strackville Road, Collins Road, Cane Road, Pup Hill Road, Maggy Road, Soper Road, Ore Bed Road, and Kent Falls Road. Anyone who locates one of the puppies should call city police at 563-3411. At this time Racicot said no charges have been filed against Michael, though the investigation is continuing.

veterinarian bills, because the dogs were sick. According to a release by Plattsburgh City Police, on Saturday morning, Aug. 3, an employee of Northern Puppies pet store, 11 Plattsburgh Plaza, reported the store had been burglarized. When the employee arrived at the store she found the back door forced open. Money had been stolen from the cash register and shelving units had been knocked over. Twentyfour puppies between the ages of 8 weeks and 6 months had been taken. Later Saturday night, police learned a family who lives near Strackville Road in Peasleeville found a German Shepherd puppy in the woods. A few hours later members of that family and friends went searching in the same general area and found another German Shepherd puppy. Police were able to identify the dogs as those that had been reported stolen from Northern Puppies. Saturday night and Sunday police used All Terrain Vehicles and searched the woods in Saranac, Peasleeville and Dannemora areas. Police located another puppy in the woods in the area of Collins Road and Pup Hill Road. Three more of the Northern Puppies dogs were found by residents in the area and turned into a local veterinarian and shelter. Through the investigation, police determined the person responsible for the reported burglary and theft of the dogs was Michael Staley. Tammy Staley, the licensed owner of Northern Puppies pet store, was arrested on July 10 and charged with 20 counts of animal cruelty for not providing proper medical care to sick kittens and not providing adequate living space for two chow dogs. All of the cats and the two chow dogs were taken into police custody. At the time of her arrest, she was in possession of 30 different puppies. During the duration of the investigation, Chief Desmond Racicot of the Plattsburgh City Police said Tammy Staley was not allowed to sell the companion animals at her store but was required to maintain care of the dogs at the store. Racicot said as of Monday night he was not sure what happened to the remaining six puppies. City police continued searching Sunday evening and found six more puppies in the area of Macomb State Park in Peru. Police also learned another puppy had been found in Dannemora.

The Retreat Salon and Spa opens in Dannemora area,Ó Baker said. Ò The closest place for that is New York City, and thatÕ s something I do here.Ó Living in Dannemora, Baker saw that the nearest local salons were all in Plattsburgh, where she has worked for the past three years. Ò ThereÕ s nothing out here in this location. There is one other salon and she just has tanning and stuff, but thereÕ s no one doing manicures and pedicures or any of that. I just wanted something out here for local people. Keep it all local,Ó she said. Keeping the feel homey and personal, and not crowded and gossipy, is important for Baker. Her goal, she says, is to keep a nice, small town feel to her business. Baker specializes in weddings, proms, and special events, and will travel to clientÕ s homes for weddings and special events for both hair and makeup.

Education, she says, is huge in the field. Ò YouÕ ve got to stay current.Ó She runs different specials each month, and is planning a back to school special in September. In fact business at The Retreat Salon and Spa has been so brisk that Baker is planning on adding two more stylists. She urges interested stylists to stop in and meet her to apply, rather than calling. “I’d like to find someone as motivated and dedicated to the craft as me. I want to be the best in the area,Ó she said. Located in the former Dannemora railroad station, Baker, her husband Brian, and parents Wes and Sherry Facto spent two months refurbishing the building prior to its opening. The easy to find landmark building is located at 121 Emmons Street. Christa can be reached at 492-3131, or through Facebook at KissandMakeUp828.

DANNEMORAÑ The Retreat Salon and Spa in Dannemora has been open for only three months, but owner Christa Baker is already planning to expand.

The Joyful Youth Choir forms in Keeseville Local teens come together in song By Shawn Ryan KEESEVILLE Ñ Teens from St. AlexanderÕ s in Morrisonville, St. AugustineÕ s in Peru and The Roman Catholic Community of Keeseville have come together to form the Joyful Youth Choir. Formed in the spirit of Pope Emeritus BenedictÕ s Ò Year of Faith,Ó the choirÕ s goal is to involve students in sharing their faith through music. The choir, consisting of 16 teens from the three parishes, is mentored by Ron Goddeau and pianist/conductor Dennis Frisbie, both from Peru. Ò WeÕ re fortunate that there was enough talent across the three parishes that, even though we have a really small group, we

were lucky enough to have a good cross section of voices,Ó said co-organizer Brenda Smith. The group has been rehearsing for 12 weeks, and their unique arrangements and classic favorites are nearly ready to be unveiled. They perform various styles of music, including songs like Ò Lord of the Dance,Ó Ò Swing Low Sweet Chariot,Ó and Ò When the Saints Go Marching In.Ó Ò ItÕ s something a little bit different that hasnÕ t been tried in this area,Ó said Goddeau. Ò You always hear about the kids who are in trouble. These are the kids you donÕ t hear about,Ó Goddeau added. The Joyful Youth Choir will perform Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. at St. AugustineÕ s Church in Peru, and Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Church in Keeseville.

Carousel-A-Thon to be 24 hours of fun for community By Katherine Clark SARANAC LAKE Ñ The Adirondack Carousel will be partying all night and all through the day Aug. 23 - 24. There will be a theme party for every hour with radio host Paul Varga of WSLP 93.3 radio. The first annual Carousel-A-Thon fundraiser will be a joint effort between WSLP 93.3 radio station and the Adirondack Carousel. Beginning at noon on Aug. 23, Varga will broadcast live while riding the carousel for 24 hours straight. The event will include 24 hours of live auctions, a barbecue, midnight movies that will include Ò Grease,Ó jump houses and kidÕ s activities in the park, clowns, a Ò Ride-A-ThonÓ challenge and much more. Paula Hameline, executive director for the carousel, said the Ride-A-Thon involves inviting people from the community to get sponsors to donate money for each loop they ride on the carousel. Hameline said the carousel does 10 revolutions per ride. Donors, she said, will sponsor a revolution. Participants of the Ride-A-Thon will ride for free. Ride-A-Thon riders can pick up a sponsor sheet, get friends, family and col-

leagues to sponsor them as they ride the carousel as many times as they can, while being interviewed by Varga. Ò The carousel isnÕ t designed to go non-stop all night, so Paul will ride every time someone wants to go on with him, even if there is just one person, he assures me he doesnÕ t get motion sickness so we think heÕ ll be able to go all the way through the night,Ó Hameline said. Ò We have activities planned all through the night to help him as he tries to stay awake and we hope he has fellow riders all night.Ó Varga said his favorite animal on the carousel is the Otter named Ò OliveÓ although he said heÕ s looking forward to riding all the animals at least once throughout the 24 hour period. Varga will set up his radio show on the back of the Ò See-Ya-RoundÓ boat and be equipped with a wireless microphone to move around the carousel. All funds raised will go to fund the fall and winter carousel events and programming schedule. Those events include Dr. Seuss Readacross America, Gingerbread house making day, Scarousel Halloween Party, Animal Education lecture series and many more. Hameline said there are many ways people can get involved during the festivities and for everyone that does there are opportunities for

air-time interviews to talk about business services. The 24-hour ride will be packed full of activities beginning at noon with Varga beginning his ride and live broadcast. Other activities like the carousel jump houses, bubble station, vendors, barbecue and live auctions will also begin at noon. Happy Hour will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. which will include a buy one, get one free boarding pass to the carousel for anyone wearing business attire. From 8 to 9 p.m. the atmosphere will go back in time during a 70Õ s Era Hour. Anyone who comes in 70Õ s attire, gets buy one, get one free boarding passes while listening to music of the 70Õ s as they ride the carousel. From 11 p.m. to midnight visitors can enjoy Ò Glow HourÓ with all lights out except glow sticks. During this hour guests wearing 50Õ s themed costume attire get buy one, get one free boarding passes as well as the opportunity to ride to the soundtrack of the movie Ò Grease.Ó Going into Saturday, Aug. 24, the movie Ò GreaseÓ will be shown inside the carousel. Once guests are in they will not be allowed readmission if they leave, Hameline said. More movies will follow until 4 a.m. Hameline said the movies will be picked later.

At 4 a.m., the carousel will open as an Internet Cafe, with WiFi and coffee, tea, muffins, doughnuts and more available with donations suggested. At 7 a.m. the pajama party will begin with a waffle breakfast until 9 a.m. Guests can show up in their favorite pajamas and watch cartoons. Guests wearing pajamas will enjoy buy one, get one free rides. The crowning hour will be from 9 to 10 a.m. as the Carousel Count and Countess contest begins, with people in royalty costumes getting buy one, get one free rides. The winning royalty will be crowned at 10 a.m. The grand finale for the festivities will be the Family Hour from 10 a.m. to noon where family passes will be marked down from $150 to $125. Birthday party reservations will also be discounted with $25 off any size party, puppet show, face painting and more. Hameline said the event is a great opportunity for community groups to come and rally support for individual organizations. Ò Since there wonÕ t be a Saranac Lake Block Party this year we are hoping people can come here instead,Ó Hameline said. For more information about the event go to the carouselÕ s website at or call them at 891-9521.

Fred Villari’s Studio in Plattsburgh prepares for 30th Anniversary By Katherine Clark PLATTSBURGH Ñ When the VillariÕ s studio opened 30 years ago, karate and the martial arts were such little-known sports that Master David Boise found it difficult to find a landlord who would rent him space for his studio. Boise, a ninth-degree black belt, founded the VillariÕ s Self Defense Center of Plattsburgh in 1986. Boise, along with his wife Leisa and their assistant instructors, run a variety of courses for clients age 4 and older. This September they will celebrate 30 years of education and fitness in Plattsburgh. Ò My instructor, Grand Master Fred VillariÕ s, started opening stores and he asked me if I would open in Barre, Vt,Ó Boise said. Ò No one would rent to me because they didnÕ t know what karate was.Ó Boise said the idea of teaching the sport was still relatively uncharted territory at the time. Ò It is a sport of tradition, generally taught from one generation to the next and certainly not main stream,Ó Boise said. Ò We didnÕ t teach anyone under the age of 18 then, it was considered a brutal sport and none of us knew how to train children.Ó After having no luck in finding prospective properties in Barre, Boise said he turned to Plattsburgh because his father was serving at the Plattsburgh Air Force Base and his mother was teaching locally. He found the property on 54 Margaret Street and with Ò a lot of hard work and disciplineÓ he was able to introduce karate to the Plattsburgh area. Ò Generally in Ô 83 there was no model, you worked outside or at your instructors house,Ó Boise said. Ò It was before the Karate Kid, before Ninja’s and MMA fighting made people come into the studio.Ó Boise said he learned along with other instructors how to tailor classes for younger chil-

dren. Ò ItÕ s been kind of unique, we teach discipline and self discipline and our number one rule is respect and treating people the way you want to be treated,Ó Boise said. Ò Our principles are the same for all age levels and we expand that as the students make it to new levels.Ó For each class Boise said he generalizes moves while tailoring moves for the individual student. Ò The martial arts is nice because itÕ s a very neat type of workout. Even though youÕ re in a group class itÕ s a very individualized activity,Ó Boise said. The Plattsburgh studio offers a wide range of courses from self-defense, weights, abdominal/ core workouts, setup aerobics and cardio kickboxing. The reasons behind clients coming to the studio are very different, Boise said, but at the studio they can receive an individualized lesson in martial arts to teach discipline, self defense and empowerment. Ò For everyone our class serves as both physical fitness as well as a stress reliever,” Boise said. Ò A lot of people like the challenge because not only are you getting a good work out physically but mentally itÕ s very stimulating thatÕ s why people like it because it is never the same class; we never do the same thing.Ó Boise said another component people are attracted to is the rich history and traditional values the sport teaches students. Karate classes are offered for both men and women. There are also female-only cardio kickboxing classes taught by Leisa. “The biggest benefit is self defense. It’s kind of like the cardio and kick boxing Leisa has been doing that since 1995,Ó Boise said, Ò which comes after 18 years of experience. I think the best thing for women is when they come in and see a change within the first couple weeks.” Leisa said the women who come to the class


From page 1 started his project with two frame rails from a Ford Model A truck, salvaged from a project truck he had in his backyard. All of the parts, in fact, came from vehicles or other scrap metal he already had on hand. Ò The cowl is a Ô 28/Õ 29 Model A, the doors are from a Ô 30/Õ 31 Model A, the body panels are handmade. The rear section is from a Model T touring car, the rear axel is from a 1947 Ford pickup truck, the front end comes from a 1939 Ford car,Ó Couture said, running down the list of ingredients for his Ò Frankencar.Ó For a gas tank, Couture welded two coca-cola fountain syrup canisters together. Some re-purposed road signs for floor boards, a pair of military surplus seat cushions and seat backs from a Ô 36 Chevrolet sedan completed the body work. Topped with a 1949 Oldsmobile Ò Rocket 88Ó engine, a supercharger, and a side-draft carburetor, CoutureÕ s creation was just about ready to roll off the production line. Ò I did a couple things to put it over the top,Ó Couture said. Ò Like the Hudson Terraplane grill.Ó Couture had originally had a different grill on the car, but saw that the Hudson grill he had hanging on the wall was a much better look. Ò It had to run enough to get it into where they were going to

Oftentimes, however, they are the women who Ò cannot be peeledÓ from the bag at the end of the class, she said. Ò The cardio people like it because it is very empowering. When we started it we didnÕ t want it to be very co-ed. Women like to get girls together and kick, punch and sweat,Ó Leisa said. Ò ItÕ s empowering because self defense empowers you to speak your mind better, be more assertive and is a huge confidence builder. They say itÕ s a very therapeutic release.Ó Boise said the classes are especially good for women as they tend to internalize stress. He said his students say they love coming in and taking it out on the punching bag. Ò ItÕ s a great workout Ñ itÕ s not just physical but mental,Ó Leisa said. With cardio and martial arts class, Boise said there is always going to be those down days Ò where you didnÕ t sleep well, eat well, and feel like they only put 60 percent into it. But, he said, Ò thatÕ s okay. You put as much into it as you want to get out of it.Ó One of the best things about working out at VillariÕ s, Boise said, is the courses encourage

be on display, which it did. IÕ ve driven this around the neighborhood. In fact it is registered,Ó he said. Couture grew up in the 50s and 60s, a great time for what are now classic cars. He wasn’t hooked on cars at first, but rather wooden motor boats. After building wooden boats for about 20 years, he eventually migrated into cars. Ò I had some friends who were car people, and I just jumped into it.Ó Over the years he has built about a half dozen cars from the ground-up, and has at least twice that many cars, trucks and various motors around his shop in the woods. He occasionally shows the car locally at Champlain Valley Classic Cruisers events. Cherishing his one-of-a-kind trophy, a welded-together conglomeration of car parts supporting plaque, the retired corrections officer has already decided he will not be competing in next yearÕ s build-off. The winner could have automatically competed next year, but Couture says the Build-Off was a one time thing for him. Ò IÕ ve got several more projects in the works. IÕ ve got an old pickup truck in the shed that IÕ m going to tinker with,Ó Couture said. Coupled with the three country bands he plays bass guitar in, Ò The North Country FrenchmanÓ has more than his fair share of irons in the fire. Ò ThatÕ s how we do it in the OlÕ Skool,Ó he said.

students to work every muscle group in the body and really engage them. Boise said for his upcoming anniversary the studio will be offering discounted memberships. Ò Martial arts are now more professional and people are more educated, the traditional arts will always be around,Ó Boise said. The crew at VillariÕ s challenges anyone interested in participating in the sport a free introductory course. In September, in honor of their anniversary celebration, they will be offering discounted memberships, including a free uniform, with monthly memberships of $55. Original prices were $125 monthly membership, plus a $35 charge for uniforms. Ò Come in and train with the professionals,Ó Boise said. Ò We model success because we work really hard and we hope for 30 more years in Plattsburgh.Ó For more information on the studio, call VillariÕ s at 561-8592 or email Boise at
