Embattled pet store owner wants her side to be heard By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ While an impromptu protest was gaining strength outside her Plattsburgh Plaza pet shop Aug. 6, Northern PuppiesÕ owner Tammy Staley wanted her side of the story to be heard. Staley was arrested for 20 counts of cruelty to animals on July 10, after a spot inspection by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets discovered one dead kitten, and several in what they determined were unsuitable conditions. The kittens, along with two adult chow dogs, were seized, leaving Staley with 30 dogs. She was barred by the Department of Agriculture from selling, giving away or euthanizing the dogs. Staley doesnÕ t believe in crating her animals, even at night. Instead she had pens built at her shop, where numerous puppies and kittens were housed in the pens at any given time, puppies separate from kittens. Ò Have you ever had a litter of puppies? When you wake up in the morning, what do you wake up to?Ó Staley asked. Staley said that when she and her employees get to the store each morning, typically the first thing they do is to clean up any feces the puppies and kittens had made during the night, which was sometimes all over the pens, and fill up water and food bowls. Ò Every morning thatÕ s what we come in to - a mess,Ó she said. ThatÕ s what Staley claims one of her employees came in to find on the morning of July 10. When a customer followed her

in that morning to purchase a Rottweiler, she didnÕ t have a chance to clean the pens. Then inspectors from the Department of Agriculture showed up for an unannounced inspection, and found the animals in this messy condition. Her problems, she says, were compounded by the discovery of a dead kitten that morning. “A month ago we took in five litters of sick kittens. We had five litters in two days,” Staley said. Ò We called our vet, we had her come in. She did some tests, it came back that some of them had coccidia, some had ringworm, so we were treating them for that.Ó The kittens were quarantined in large, 250 gallon aquarium tanks, according to Staley. Overnight, one of the kittens died Ñ a reality that she says happens fairly frequently with litters of kittens. Two other kittens from those litters had died a couple Protestors picket outside the Northern Puppies pet store Aug. 6. days prior to that.

Ombudsman program needs volunteers By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGHÑ Amy GehrigÕ s job might be a little easier if they called it something else; but the term ‘ombudsman’ is unfortunately here to stay. ItÕ s a Swedish word that means Ò citizen advocate,Ó and thatÕ s who Gehrig needs in Essex County: concerned volunteers who can advocate for elderly people who may not have a voice of their own. Ò We are looking for top-notch volunteers, people who are willing to commit to two to four hours a week, going into a longterm care facility and visiting and advocating for residentsÕ rights,Ó she said. Ò ItÕ s making that difference in someoneÕ s life, in making that moment a happier moment for them. ThatÕ s the biggest reward of this program.Ó The ombudsman program is a national program, which is run independently by each state, but coordinated locally. Gehrig is the coordinator for Clinton and Essex counties, operating through the North Country Center for Independence. She oversees 23 facilities in Clinton and Essex counties for all levels of care, from nursing homes, to assisted living facilities to familytype homes. Gehrig currently has one volunteer for all of Essex County. Ò ItÕ s not just going in and visiting with residents, itÕ s investigating. If youÕ re into investigations and getting to the bottom of things and fact-finding, then this is the perfect job for you. It’s very rewarding.Ó The time commitment, she says, is very flexible, with volunteers setting their own schedule for the week. More then just getting new volunteers, Gehrig hopes to get the word out about what the ombudsman program is, and who it helps. An ombudsman isnÕ t hired by the facility, she says, and in fact has the power to investigate a clientÕ s records if asked by the client. A large part of the job is negotiating on behalf of the client if there’s a conflict or a problem. They might be contacted by a resident of the facility, or very often by a family member of that resident. A facility does not have the right to deny an ombudsman entrance to a facility. Ò The bottom line is, this is their residence, and everyone needs to remember that,Ó Gehrig said. Ò It is critical that they have rights; they have the option to have a meal they enjoy, or having a hot coffee when they want it, that when they ring the bell to go to the bathroom that someone comes in a decent amount of time. We are there to ensure that they have those basic rights.Ó There is a four-day training session upcoming for those interested in volunteering. It will be held Sept. 3 - 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Those interested in either Essex or Clinton County can contact Gehrig at 562-9058.

Get serious about road repair Money is the major problem


hen driving over roads in the Adirondacks, drivers and passengers routinely cringe when driving over potholes or veering around ruts in the road. While such road conditions may provide an entertaining obstacle course for some Ò road warriors,Ó the deteriorated roads not only are a threat to public safety in triggering crashes, but they cause considerable damage to vehicles which boost repair and maintenance costs substantially for us all. Younger drivers may take the prevailing road conditions for granted. But those of us whoÕ ve been around for a while remember how decades ago, roadways were substantially smoother across the state. We remember how crossing state lines meant an abrupt change from cruising on smooth black asphalt surfaces, to driving on rutted bumpy roadways of Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Massachusetts. This scenario has changed dramatically. Faced with repeated financial shortfalls since the onset of the recession, New York State and its counties and towns slashed spending on roadway repair, and the results are evident in the road conditions here. The problems with lack of road maintenance, however, go back further than 2008. Years ago, a top state Department of Transportation official gave a presentation to Warren County supervisors, warning about how lack of funding for repair of the stateÕ s roads was at near-crisis status, requiring billions of dollars more each year to restore roads to their historical condition. Putting off needed minor repairs and resurfacing, he said, caused serious deterioration to occur that required far more expensive road reconstruction. He cited studies concluding that it costs seven times as much money to repair a road in bad condition than it does to maintain a road in adequate status. His warning was on target. An independent study showed that although New York had once had roadway conditions that far outshined the neighboring states of New Jersey and Connecticut, all three states had sunk to the bottom ranking nationally in recent years. The New York Times reported that New York ranked 43rd among the 50 states, Connecticut ranked 44th and New Jersey was the absolute last at number 50. The study was based on measuring excessive vibration. At the time, it was reported that transportation officials calculated that poor road conditions cost U.S. motorists about $68 billion per year in extra repair and maintenance costs, or as

much as $800 to $1,000 extra annually per driver in regions with the most neglected roadways. In 2009, the American Society of Civil Engineers assigned a near-failing grade of Ò DÓ to the nations roadways. Studies conducted since then have showed that despite billions of dollars in federal stimulus funding being spent on roadway repair, prevailing conditions have actually declined. For several years now, Warren County Public Works Superintendent Jeff Tennyson has voiced this same warning, about how procrastination on roadway repair costs taxpayers far more than paying a modest sum extra each year for responsible road upkeep. Several weeks ago, he repeated his warning, noting the continued deterioration of county roadways. He said he could easily prepare a list of roads requiring repair that was four pages long. County supervisors responded by endorsing repair of three roadways, which we applaud, but their commitment to road repair should be far greater. ThereÕ s some relief on the horizon, we hear, to the lack of state funding for road repair. Earlier this year, the New York State Association of Counties called for a substantial increase in funding for roads and bridge repair and reconstruction statewide, noting that existing funding levels were only at about threequarters the level needed to maintain current conditions. The state legislature responded by boosting the stateÕ s Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) by $75 million for each of the next two years. While this increase should be applauded, it will take far more than this sum to stem ongoing roadway deterioration, particularly in light of decreases in federal funding and the end of the stimulus infrastructure grants. Counties and towns also need to step up and authorize road repair and maintenance projects that are needed to keep our roads in good condition. Poor roads not only cost drivers a lot in vehicle repair Ñ which is in itself far more costly year by year but they also crucial to the areaÕ s economic vitality. They directly impact businesses’ financial health, job creation and retention and quality of life in general. But most important, poor road conditions can cause accidents which involve injury and deaths, particularly to motorcyclists. Ñ

illennium/Gen Y DEFYING young adults joined us this past week at FREE ADVICE night to discuss their unique and independent successes post-college. A quick refresher: Millenniums are defined as those born between 1980 and 2002; and are unfortunately associated with some negative characteristics. Entitlement and narcissism are often cited as two less than stellar descriptors. However, the group of Millenials we recently met at The Champlain Wine Company dispelled these unfavorable associations and have stepped fully into becoming caring, focused, and thoughtful young adults.

Adding ambience to the wine tour, REINHART MEISENHEIMER & WILL PELLERIN, stopped downtown strollers and wine samplers with their acoustic guitars and singing. IVAN introduced us to Maximus, his eight week old Rottweiler. IvanÕ s family have bred and trained Rottweilers for many years and he shared sage advice for training any dog: good dog habits begin with good human habits. Ò Dogs take their cues from the humans with whom they interact. In order to have a well behaved dog, start training early with respect and clear expectations.Ó What we see in these young adults is positive energy and the wish to connect with all generations.

The Scene

From page 7 Coming off a record-breaking month of June at ARCHER SPA, on 22 Oak Street, DENA ARCHER & daughter, LOUISA added to the great downtown vibe. Hot at the spa are the Girls/Couples Nights and the Facelift Massage, a 90-minute treatment that restores elasticity and blood flow to the face, neck and shoulders and leaves a girl glowing! Book one now at 562-3322, as they are in high demand! MARY ALICE SHEMO, a Plattsburgh political activist and supporter of the Working Families Party, shared a glass of wine and gave some advice to explain her group activism, Ò a voice shouting alone is an only echo chamber.Ó In other words, get together to make a change and support your passions. The current photography art exhibit was kicked off with a MEET THE ARTIST night on FIRST FRIDAY. JONATHAN CROM, photographer and gardener, combines his two passions into this beautiful (still on!) display. JONATHANÕ S work celebrates the beauty of a North Country summer. Consider purchasing a piece as a gentle reminder of light during a long North Country winter.

Richard’s Beverage Center continues to change with the times By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ From the road, RichardÕ s Beverage Center looks like a small mom & pop store, but inside, you’ll find one of the best assortments of craft beers in the North Country. In fact, RichardÕ s got its start 51 years ago as exactly that; a small, neighborhood grocery store. The store was started by Edmund Richard, the father of current owner Dave Richard. When Dave Richard bought the store from his father, they were barely taking in any money. Richard did however see one part of the store that was making money: fishing tackle. So, in the early 1980s, Richards switched primarily to fishing tackle, and became one of the biggest tackle stores in the Plattsburgh area. Tackle was so big, in fact, that Richard started putting additions on his store. Then, when the air base closed in 1995, they took most of his tackle business along with them. Richard was once again forced to make a change to keep his business viable. Ò We talked to some of our salesmen, and they said why not sell beer cheap,Ó he said. He already had two small coolers from the grocery store days, and added to those to accommodate the beer. Along with his growing selection of Ò cheap beer,Ó Richard started adding a few

higher-end beers, and they took off immediately. He added more craft beers to his stock, and has recently started selling single bottles of the most expensive beers. Ò You can buy one bottle to try it out, then if you like it, you can come back and buy the whole four-pack.Ó His mostly family-staffed business has grown well beyond his south Plattsburgh neighborhood, with customers from all around the region making a special trip to Johnson Avenue, or stopping by while vacationing in the area, for his beer selection. Ò I get people from all over; Vermont, New Jersey. I have Canadians come down for the craft beers.Ó With five distributors, if Richard doesn’t have the beer you want in stock, chances are good he can get it. He gladly special orders beer routinely for customers. Ò I still enjoy it,Ó Richard said. Ò IÕ m 66 years old and I still enjoy it. The lugging isnÕ t fun any more, but thatÕ s what I have employees for.Ó RichardÕ s Beverage Center is located at 71 Johnson Avenue. They are open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Pictured at right: Dave Richard in one of the many coolers in his Plattsburgh store.

Club Manager Dan Toby. Ò We wanted a route that showed a great portion of our region with mountain views, lake views and a chance to see a lot of the countryside,Ó Toby said. All proceeds from the event will go to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). According to the ADA, diabetes is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the bodyÕ s ability to produce and/or use insulin. There are three types of diabetes including Type 1, usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and previously known as juvenile diabetes. In Type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. In Type 2 diabetes, the body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance or gestational diabetes in pregnant women. The ADA fights against the consequences of diabetes and fights for those affected by diabetes. The organization funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes, deliver services to hundreds of communities and provides educational information about the disease. Ò Corporate SamÕ s Club has worked heavily with the ADA and when we looked in the Plattsburgh area we saw there was definitely a need to raise awareness for diabetes and support in our

August 17, 2013

community,Ó Assistant Manager at SamÕ s Club, Nicole Laurin said. In addition to the motorcycle ride, volunteers will host a family fun event in the SamÕ s Club parking lot from 8 a.m. to noon. Ò We want to make sure no one feels left out, if you canÕ t ride you can come to the family fun day, weÕ re going to have face painting, food and games,Ó said Laurin. Toby said there will also be a SamÕ s Club pharmacist and trained diabetes educator on site who will be holding talks about nutrition and how to avoid getting diabetes through healthy lifestyle. Ò WeÕ re really striving to bring higher awareness about this disease in the community, promoting healthy lifestyles and teaching people how to avoid this disease,Ó Toby said. Through the support of local businesses, Laurin said SamÕ s Club will be able to contribute 100 percent of the money raised to the ADA thanks to sponsors such as Pepsi and Plattsburgh Distributing. “This is our first real event, we have worked on it for months and our hope is that if we can make this a successful event we will continue to do something every year to raise support for diabetes,Ó Toby said. In the future, Toby said they might organize a walk or bike ride event. Ò There were a lot of walks planned for this time of year and talking it over with people a motorcycle ride seemed like the best choice for our first fundraiser,” Laurin said. 1982

Prima Trio From page 1

The pieces they will be presenting for the first time at their Hill and Hollow performance are MozartÕ s Ò Kegelstatt TrioÓ and BartokÕ s Ò Contrasts.Ó All virtuosos in their own right, this will be the trio’s first time in the North Country, after performing in concert halls throughout the United States and Europe. They are not, however, strangers to playing small venues. Last season the trio played 48 concerts in 20 states, most in smaller towns. Ò We have great experience of playing in small towns. The beauty and the variety of this country is just overwhelming,Ó said Gurevich. Ò So it was just a wonderful experience. We want to go somewhere small where we can work in peace and quiet and relax and perform.Ó Now in their 15th year, Hill and Hollow Music has presented more than 100 professional chamber music ensembles of national and international renown. The 4 p.m. concert will be free and open to the public, with dinner following the concert by donation. Those interested should contact, or call 293-7613.

North Countryman - 15

Have we lost our senses? A clover patch that was mowed to allow sun in. Photo by Rich Redman

Summer food plots


he other day I saw some young turkeys out in a field feeding on grasshoppers and other bugs. The young birds were foraging for the protein and energy they need to grow. Like Bear says, bugs are good! Deer are starting to feed on the slowly changing color of green to red apples. Apples are loaded with sugars, which are excellent energy sources for putting on the pounds. Food is the primary concern of all animals. InBy Rich Redman stinctively they know that they need to gain as much weight as possible to make it through another winter. Putting on weight for animals may be hard, for me, keeping it off is the problem. I need to work out like Arnold Schwarzenegger to keep the weight off, but that is another tale to tell. Protein, carbohydrates, fats and minerals are all needed to increase weight and to have energy to make it through a long cold night, especially up here in the North Country. If you live near a farm, corn, soybeans, alfalfa, clovers and tree crops like apples and acorns and tree browse will supply much of what an animal needs. Grasses, clovers and weeds that are mature with a seed head supply food to the seed eating birds. In the woods itÕ s another story. Quality food is scarce, especially in an unmanaged forest, like Blue Line State Land. In unmanaged lands, shade covers the ground in many places and prevents plants like raspberries, and other food plants from growing. Nature takes it course on unmanaged land. Many private forest owners nowadays want to do more than just let nature take its course. They want to supplement the food supply on their property by cutting openings where the sun reaches the ground to stimulate the growth of berries, and other plants that ground feeding animals prefer. Another option is to plant a food plot of clover, brassicas, rye, chicory, and alfalfa if you have the right pH. With the heat of the summer over, and the fall rains coming, itÕ s time to get that food plot in the ground. Old headers and log roads work great for food plots. First, you plow or rake all the logging trash to the downhill side so the trash wonÕ t stop you from mowing the site. Keep it clean. Try to keep some of the smaller organic material so the soil mix holds more water. A York rake works well for this. Add compost to hold moisture and add slow release nutrients. Make sure you have a soil test so you put on what the plant needs, not what you think it needs. Once you have the soil test completed, find a nice mix of the type of forage you want to plant. There are numerous internet sites with all kinds of different food plot information you may want to try. Once again check the label on the bag so you follow what the company recommends for that particular planting. A hand spreader or small spinner applies the seed evenly. You can also use it for fertilizer and lime if itÕ s a small plot. Fertilize and lime for quality, our soils are not especially rich up here. Get the planting in as soon as possible, so it has enough time to establish a sound rooting system and build up energy to make it through the winter, just like the animals. Plant the clovers in the wetter spots and chicory is OK in the dryer sites. Try a variety of plantings; donÕ t put all your eggs in one basket as the saying goes. Variety is the spice of life, and insures that you have a crop in case one fails. DonÕ t mix all the seed together and try a shotgun mix, not good! Brassicas stay separate, clover and chicory can go together. Clover alone is a great food plot. Follow the recommendations on the seed bag. If you planted a food plot in spring, take a look at it and see if the grasses are getting ahead of the clovers. Clover needs sun and you need to clip, mow or weed whack the grasses to allow the sun to penetrate the clover patch. I was working with a guy and we mowed his grass clover mix a few weeks ago. The clovers are doing well. I repeat, fertilize and lime for quality, our soils are not especially rich up here. If you want a long term food plot, try planting some apple trees and other fruit trees along with berry bushes that will supply energy to your wildlife. Crab apples, wild apples, wild raisin, blueberries, dogwoods, oaks and beech will supply fruit and nuts to your critters. If you plant trees, make sure you have a large root ball with plenty of compost so the plant handles the transplanting shock. I like to plant just before a good soaking rain and cool temperatures. Spring transplants are best, but fall ones work if you do it carefully. For grouse, aspen buds are the prime food source. If you have large popple or aspen in your wood lot, cut them down in the winter when the roots have all the energy stored. Create a large clear area so the new growth of root suckers gets plenty of sun. Young thick stands of aspen intermixed with apple and other fruit trees provides some great habitat. It will take 10 years to get a young stand thick for birds, but wildlife management is not quick and easy. Like a fine wild apple hard cider, it takes time and planning to do it right. Planting a food plot is something everyone should try in their field or woodlot. It will provide additional food for the animals and provide you an enjoyable time in the field or woods. Catlins feed supply in Ticonderoga and Bob DupreyÕ s in Chazy can get you just about anything you may need. Many other stores like Tractor Supply, Gander Mountain, Seedway in Vermont and the Whitetail Institute can supply you with a quality food plot mix. I prefer to buy from my local guys and so should you. Keep the money close to home! Whether you hunt, shoot with a camera, or just like to observe the fruits of your labor and the animals enjoying those fruits, it doesnÕ t matter to me. Plant a food plot, sit back and dig on life.



Banner Pines provide evidence of prevailing winds, which typically come from the west. As a result, elongated limbs can typically be found pointing to the east.


ong before such technological advancements as electronic Global Positioning Systems, or even the magnetic compass, travelers knew how to rely upon simple observations of natural patterns to assist them in orienting their travels and to help predict the weather. Travelers understood the natural weather signs and were accustomed to learning the lay of the land in order to avoid being caught off-guard by the elements. Regular observation allowed them to become attuned to the waters, sky, air, as well as the behavior of animals, birds, insects and even the trees. Unfortunately, in recent times humans have increasingly lost touch with the natural world. The vast majority of humans can no longer be considered natural travelers. Increasingly, modern man has grown out of touch with his natural surroundings. It should come as no surprise, as we have lost the need to use our senses. We cover up from head to toe with a hat on our head and socks and shoes muffling our feet. We plug an iPod into our ears, and set a pair of dark sunglasses on our nose. As travelers, we have effectively shuttered our natural senses, and as a result we often fail to recognize all that is happening in our surroundings. Our hearing is dampened, as is our touch, feel, vision and balance. Of course, we are masked and overpowered by the acceptable amount of deodorant, after shave, perfume, shampoo, mouthwash and scented soap we use to disguise our own. After clearing, cleaning, masking and eliminating any of the natural scents and senses that may have been accumulated, we continue to cover-up any exposed skin that might offer us a natural hint of what is to come. Is it any surprise that modern day society has become so totally disconnected from the natural world? At one time, it was a unique combination of natural observation and orientation that made it possible for humans to reliably predict the weather, and to accurately determine their correct direction of travel. It was a perspective that was typically based on an intuitive knowledge of the local landscape, as well as regular observations of weather, animals and other natural signs. In the Adirondack region, natural clues of orientation are abundant for those who know how to read them. Most of the lakes are oriented south to north, as a result of scouring that occurred as the glaciers retreated. The local mountain-tops also sport the same long, gouge lines that were etched by the scraping of rocks under the retreating glaciers. They were carved in a similar north/south orientation as a result of the glacial retreat. If the lands and the waters fail to provide proper opportunities, there are still many other natural features available on the natural compass. The sun still rises in the east, and continues to set in the west, due to the natural counterclockwise rotation of the earth. The moon also rises in the east. This rotation is responsible for delivering the majority of our wind and weather patterns from the west. The prevailing wind tends to tip the tops of our tall white pines toward an easterly direction. These trees are known as banner pines. Another well established natural directional sign is moss, which typically grows thickest on the shaded, north side of a tree. However, moss can be found on any side of a tree depending on the shade provided by other surrounding

trees. Wind or storm damage can also twist the trunk of a tree after moss has been established. Despite such anomalies, moss typically grows thickest on the north side of a tree because it is shaded and gets the least direct sunshine. It is the same reason snow stays longer and is often deeper on the north facing slopes. North facing slopes are usually colder and shadier during the fall, winter and spring when the sun is predominantly shining on the southern slopes. However, it is important to recognize that natural methods of direction arenÕ t infallible. Always look for more than one indicator when ascertaining a direction. If the sun, plants and wind all indicate the same thing, then chances are they canÕ t all be wrong!

Weather or Not

Similar to determining the proper orientation by observing natural indicators, many travelers have also forgotten how to predict the weather by observing the natural signs. Well before such modern tools as AccuWeather radar and satellite monitoring systems first evolved, travelers depended primarily on natural observations to predict the expected weather patterns. Fortunately, many still do. IÕ m very fortunate in this regard, as I happen to be very sensitive to air pressure. My ears begin to pop whenever a low pressure system approaches. However, IÕ ve also learned how to recognize many other natural signs that foretell foul weather, for which a campfire always provides a welcome aid. While sitting around a fire in the evening, it is easy to spot a ‘ring around the moon,’ which is usually a sure sign of rain, or snow depending on the season. Known as a corona, the ring is the result of a refraction of the moonÕ s light in ice crystals at a very high altitude. It typically indicates low pressure and foul weather are on the way. A sure sign that a low pressure system has arrived is often found closer to a fire ring, and it is more evident than looking for a ring around the moon. Typically, low pressure systems are accompanied by damp and musty scents, which cause smoke from a fire to hang close to the ground. This occurs because the heavy, moisture-laden smoke particles fail to disperse into the woods as easily as lighter, dry ones do. Humid air also carries scents far better than dry air. It is interesting to note that bog plants also release more oils as humidity climbs, which explains the old saying: Ò When a ditch or pond offends the nose, itÕ s time to look out for rain or stormy blows.Ó Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.
