NYCO pursues land swap

This Week THE ROCKEATER

Company would give up 1,500 acres in exchange for 200 By Shawn Ryan shawn@denpubs.com LEWIS Ñ Essex CountyÕ s second largest private employer, NYCO Minerals, has a plan to ensure another 10 years worth of mining at their Lewis mine, but it will require a land swap with the state. NYCO is bordered by state land. A small parcel of that land, a land-locked 200 acres known simply as Lot 8, holds enough Wollastonite to keep the mine operational another 10 years, NYCO officials believe. But because itÕ s in the Adirondack Park, that state land falls under the stateÕ s, Ò Forever Wild,Ó provision. A change in the stateÕ s constitution would be required to approve CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Rockeater Adventure Race on tap By Camille Daniels

denpubs@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ If youÕ ve ever heard the phrase Ò going against the grainÓ the Rockeater Adventure Race is the literal version of that phrase. The event will be held at Plattsburgh beach on Sept. 21. This event is for not only the adventurer but for someone who likes to get physical and likes to get dirty. It is also not an event for the weak at heart. It is about pulling up oneÕ s sleeves and testing oneÕ s endurance. What is the one thing that someone can expect when experiencing this grand event? Everything. The various highs and lows of taking on what the body can handle. Participants need to be prepared to sweat and come in contact with a lot of mud. This is not the Kentucky Derby. The only horse power racing around these obstacle courses are that of the human participants. Rockeater is the kind of event for those who have always wanted to do something challenging like run a marathon but never had the chance to do so. For this challenging day of events there are five different obstacles to be tackled. But before one even tackles the obstacles that lie in front of them there are a few other things one should note. The first being that there is a costume requirement. For this day of challenges the dress attire is not a tee shirt and a pair of shorts with sneakers. Instead, it is a crazy costume and a pair of good running sneakers. The second important item is that the race is different from a traditional race because it isnÕ t timed. So this is a race for those with a true competitive spirit but who isnÕ t worried about it being an untimed event. As mentioned earlier there are five obstacles that each contestant of this contest must complete. There is the lake run, barricade jumper, walking on yarn spools and crawling through a tunnel, just to name a few. And, yes, there is still the opportunity to become one with the mud throughout challenges. Contestants should prepare their mind and body for this event as it will not be canceled regardless of the weather. Nor will anyone receive their money back if they decide to not participate after paying the registration fee. This is not for the uncertain but for those who are all about going against the grain. So come with an open mind andmopen heart as participants will no doubt learn something about themselves while making memories of the event with others. Allow the adventurous spirit to emerge and be explored as you run, jump and move through mud. Become one with the great outdoors and see what all the fuss is about. Spend a day during the last weekend of summer doing the one thing most wouldnÕ t think to do to close out the summer season and participate in the Rockeater Adventure Race at Plattsburgh beach.

Nico’s Pizza opens for business in Rouses Point With a combined 26 years of pizza experience, Nico’s has found a home By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com ROUSES POINTÑ ThereÕ s a new place to get pizza in the Northern Tier, since the summer opening of NicoÕ s Pizza on Lake Street, in the heart of the villageÕ s downtown section. James Peralas and Chuck Kimble, both veteran pizza makers from Plattsburgh, with 26 years experience between them, realized that they had done and seen it all in the pizza business. They felt it was time to go into business for themselves. Ò We knew every aspect of the business, we had run and managed businesses, so we decided to make our own money, instead of making money for someone else,Ó said Peralas. NicoÕ s opened Aug. 16, and so far business has been very good. With limited inside seating, NicoÕ s specializes in take-out and delivery. Deliveries are available during the entirety of their business hours, and they will deliver to the Town of Champlain to the west, and into Chazy to the south. There is also outdoor seating available while the weather holds up. Ò We didnÕ t want to compete in Plattsburgh with businesses weÕ ve worked at. There is only one other restaurant who does similar stuff as us (in Rouses Point),Ó said Peralas. NicoÕ s features nine types of specialty pizzas, such as mac and cheese and michagans, which have been doing exceptionally well. They also have pasta, hot and cold subs, wraps, chicken wings and burgers. Peralas and Kimble saw Rouses Point as a small community which was under served, and so far have been more than happy with their choice. Ò We couldnÕ t have picked a better place to be. These people in this community are really good people,Ó said Perales. Business has been very strong so far. If it stays at this rate,

Peralas and Kimble would consider expanding in the future. At the very least they would like to add more seating capacity to their restaurant. The name NicoÕ s, Perales said, came from an army buddy of his. He had a son named Dominic, who everyone called Nico. Ò He didnÕ t live very long, and IÕ m really close to the family, so we decided to name the business after him.Ó Pictured at right: James Perales, left, and Chuck Kimble, co-owners of Nico’s Pizza in Rouses Point, in front of their 92 Lake Street store.

Flooding in Colorado heart wrenching

I

t is hard not to harken back to August 2011 and the devastation the region endured at the hands of Tropical Storm Irene when viewing the images coming from the 15 Colorado counties most impacted by the recent violent flooding there. Stories and photos shared on Facebook by loved ones and friends in Colorado are heartwrenching. The news is tragic and the story is still unfolding. Five people have been confirmed dead after 15 inches of rain pounded Colorado non-stop for nearly a week. As of Monday afternoon, 1,200 people remained cut off from the outside world with no electricity and dwindling supplies of food and running water. State emergency officials say the death toll is expected to rise as rescue efforts into mountainous backcountry areas have been severely hindered by the wet weather. Roadways and bridges have crumbled by the rising flood waters, which cover more than 2,000 square miles across 15 counties Ñ an area twice the size of the state of Rhode Island. To date, nearly 19,000 homes have been damaged, with at least 1,500 destroyed and 11,000 people have been evacuated. President Obama signed a major disaster declaration last weekend, ordering federal aid for the flood-ravaged state, and the Colorado National Guard is at the scene, using 20 helicopters to rescue people trapped by washed-out roads and bridges. Most had been grounded, however, by heavy rains, fog and hampered visibility. ItÕ s been two years since the North Country endured similar conditions following Tropical Storm Irene. People here are still rebuilding and awaiting the final buyout of homes destroyed by Irene. Images of that fateful storm that were published in this newspaper are eerily similar to photos being circulated on news wires from Colorado, with homes underwater and people trapped by disintegrated roads and other infrastructure. In comparison, Tropical Storm Irene dumped upwards of 10 inches of rain on the North Country, much of it in less than a 24-hour period, combined with winds of 69 mph at its center Ñ just 5 mph slower than needed for hurricane status. The storm caused 10 deaths, left 1.1 million people without power and caused $1.3 billion in damages. Locally, the communities of Au Sable Forks, Keene, Jay and Upper Jay were some of the hardest hit, although few communities escaped the stormÕ s wrath. Like in Colorado, President Obama declared a disaster declaration, paving the way for help from the Federal Emergency

Management Agency and the New York National Guard was on site to help devastated communities recover. Blame it on global warming, natural weather cycles or just plain rotten luck, few would argue that our weather has gotten more and more extreme as of late. One hundred year floods seem to be commonplace these days and our aging infrastructure is not liking it. With that in mind, it is imperative that initiatives such as Gov. CuomoÕ s NY Rising Communities be put in place to help communities rebuild in such a way that they are better prepared for the next severe weather incident. If there is one thing history has shown us, it is that the North Country will undoubtedly face again the type of devastating flooding Coloradans are now experiencing. The only way to mitigate the damage is to be realistic in that it will happen again, and begin preparations now knowing where the majority of the damage occurred in the past. While the up to $6 million pledged to the North Country under the governorÕ s NY Rising Communities initiative is a start, it is but a drop in the bucket toward the money needed to shore up the stream banks, bridges, roadways and other pieces of infrastructure that will be impacted by the next severe weather event. In the meantime, on a local level, it is vital to support your first responders as well as the American Red Cross Ñ the individuals who will be at the forefront of coming to your aid. Just as disaster workers from the American Red Cross were deployed here in the North Country in August 2011, the group is now in Colorado, providing food and shelter to those affected by the flooding. More than 250 trained Red Cross disaster workers are currently deployed to Colorado, along with more than 20 emergency response vehicles and six trucks of relief supplies. Working with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Red Cross has served more than 7,100 meals and snacks. Earlier last week, as many as 1,000 people stayed in 24 shelters across the state. People can help by donating to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund by visiting www.redcross.org; calling 1-800-REDCROSS; or simply texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. You can also check on the status of a loved one by visiting www.safeandwell.org. People on a national scale came to the aid of New York state and the North Country following Tropical Storm Irene. It is time we return the favor. Ñ Denton Publications Editorial Board

MaD advice

Denton Publications, Inc.

September 21, 2013

Dear MaD advice: I am a 31 year old woman and have been struggling with this complex questionÉ .When will I get my power? Our interpretation of your question is: When will I feel confident/When will others see this confidence? Since we are both women, always seeking confidence, we have decided to write this weekÕ s response together. Power, to us, is actually empowerment. It is an internal confidence that you build by having successes and learning from failures in your life. These successes should be determined by your own personal standards, not by the worlds. Real empowerment is when you donÕ t need compliments from others to feel good about your life, your look, and your decisions. We will ask a few questions in order to answer your question more fully. Have you ever felt empowered? Is someone or something preventing you from being empowered? Have you had some life changing transitions that are making you feel powerless? You may have fleetingly felt this power/confidence in the past and this is something that you can reflect on in your search. What were you doing in your life at the time Ð at work, with friends? Were there any specific opportunities or activities you were pursuing? This reflection may bring you back to some things and people that have made you feel grounded and good about yourself. Start re-incorporating these things and people. You may feel that your starting point is somewhat inadequate. This is not true. Now incorporate passion. You donÕ t need experience to have passion. Passion is a positively fierce quality to those around you. It is at the root of empowerment, as without passion/motivation, how are you empowered to do anything? Start pointing to what you are passionate about. Refuel your

passion by continuing to create gratifying work and personal life experiences. This pendulum of passion to motivation to opportunity and finally to experience is life-long, and will continue to build and eventually swing into an empowered lifestyle. Your passion can easily be directed by having concrete goals. A goal may be as simple as introducing yourself to new people; a yoga mate or a co-worker to build strong friendships with and connections to others in seeking a more positive lifestyle. It may also be searching outside the workplace for more networking opportunities, or establishing a time-frame for certain attributes to be acquired. Ò In 6 months, I want to be acknowledged for BLANKÓ , or a more work-oriented approach, Ò I want to be able to add BLANK to my resume.Ó Those are some realistic goals that together or separately, can be power-ful. Other empowering steps we suggest are: • Don’t show your weaknesses to the world. Have a few trusted people in whom you can confide. Leave the others wondering. • If there are certain people; friends, co-workers, or family members who seem to drain you of energy or leave you feeling uncertain or angryÉ .they are stealing your power and you are letting them! Recognize it and then decide to respond differently to these offenders. Having the courage to relay your feelings, or ultimately limiting conversation with them may be your best option, until you feel more secure. • Get a plan together for some quick goals and some long term goals and align your behaviors with these targets. A series of good choices is what builds up and gives you confidence in the future. And DO believe that the women you admire and look to as role models surely have their own personal stories of their path from uncertainty into empowerment!

Letters to the Editor

Back to school time a second chance for adult learners

Reader takes issue with publisher’s column

F

amilies across the United States are preparing to send their children back to school with new book bags and school supplies. Back to school is also a time for some of the 30 million American adults who cannot read beyond a third grade level to consider taking steps to overcome their literacy challenges. Many of these adults find ways to hide this fact from their coworkers and friends— even their own families. Common avoidance techniques include finding an excuse to steer clear of reading aloud, hiding their writing from others, or committing everything to memory to avoid jotting things down. As children and teens go back to school, this is the perfect time for adults in need of educational services to take this important step to improve their own literacy skills. Being illiterate is not a joke and can be difficult to recognize and admit. Our organization helps adults address their literacy challenges. Trained tutors work one-on-one with adults who need help with basic reading, English-as-a-second-language (ESL), and math skills. We also provide literacy programs in local correctional facilities- Moriah Shock, Adirondack in Ray Brook, Bare Hill in Malone, and we recently partnered with Franklin County Jail as well. Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties is an affiliate of Literacy New York, one of the state’s largest nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing the cause of adult literacy and basic education. Our mission is to enable people over the age of 16 to achieve personal goals through student-centered literacy tutoring. This past year we supported more than 140 adult learners, and trained more than forty volunteer tutors. 67% of our students showed academic improvement by at least one grade level. With the new GED© exam we also anticipate a rush of adult learners who would like to receive their High School Equivalency Diploma before the end of the year. ThereÕ s not much time left, and there are only two testing dates available for adults in our region. The new GED © will be more rigorous, computer-based, and access will be limited. Thankfully, the New York State Education Department will offer an alternative high school equivalent exam called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), which should be ready to roll out in early 2014. It too will be more rigorous, but more accessible, and still available in a paper and pencil format. In order to support these adult learners, Literacy Volunteers relies heavily upon dedicated volunteer tutors who provide one-on-one or small group instruction to native and non-native English speakers. Volunteer tutors are patient, compassionate, flexible, and willing to give at least two hours a week to his/her adult learner. Tutors are expected to attend the tutor training prior to being matched with a student. Literacy Volunteers will have three tutor trainings across its two-county service region. At the main office in Port Henry, an orientation will be held on Oct. 1 at 1 p.m. There will be an orientation in Malone on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m., and in the Tri-Lakes region, the orientation will be held on Oct. 15 at 5 p.m. For more information please contact your local Literacy Volunteer office at the following phone number: Port Henry - 546-3008; Tri-Lakes Ð 891-5567; and Malone Ð 4839366. If you know anyone who could benefit from our services, then suggest they call their local Literacy Volunteers office. Maria Burke Director Literacy Volunteers

To the Burgh:

Is anyone else out there disturbed by the weekly racist rantings of the publisher of (ElizabethtownÕ s) only newspaper? This time Mr. Alexander likens his being stopped by a policeman for a very good reason Ñ his car resembled that of a vehicle used in a crime, the race of the driver being irrelevant Ñ to the stopping of a black man simply for being black! But then, thatÕ s IT, isnÕ t it, the absurd non-logic that says that, since some black men commit crimes, then all black men are suspects, because they Ñ the guilty and the

innocent Ñ RESEMBLE each other? How a presumably educated human being arrives at middle age with such a lack of insight is truly puzzling. That he is the voice of a newspaper is an insult to the publication. Well, maybe heÕ s not the only voice: I urge the Editorial Board to use its own column to separate themselves from their embarrassing boss Ñ unless, of course, they agree with him. Jeff Kleiman Elizabethtown

Pressline

from page 4 What the letter writer doesnÕ t know is that I have personally known, worked for, admired and hired men and women of all races and skin color during my 59 years on this earth. Each is unique and each has made choices in their lives that either caused them to achieve their goals and find happiness or have kept them from doing so. In nearly every case those who took personal responsibility for their actions, good or bad, were capable of holding their heads high. Those who looked to blame others for their misfortunes always seem to be stuck in the same place and could never place blame on the single person most responsible for holding them back Ñ themselves. Mr. Kleiman, I recognize and respect your effort to put your thoughts in print and for speaking up when you disagreed with my position. Under normal conditions your letter would not have been published were it aimed at anyone other than me, but since IÕ ve chosen to put my views on display it would be unfair for our editor to withhold your views. This country faces many problems and we stand a far better chance of addressing them if we are civil with each other and seek solutions not based on prejudice but on achieving results. I would also be happy to publish your suggestions on solving the violence in many of our troubled New York City neighborhoods and how you would address the racial differences in our country.

OBITUARIES

Dirty Dog

From page 1 group. While they operate primarily under mutual aid in Clinton, Essex, Franklin and Warren Counties, they are not eligible for the same grants that fire departments receive, since they are not a tax-based municipality. Ò Fund-raising is an integral part of our budget. A majority of our money does come from fund-raising,Ó Bresette said. When they were brainstorming for fund-raising ideas, the idea of an adventure challenge race came up, and the inaugural CVK9 Dirty Dog Fun Run was born. Ò Adventure races were just coming up, they werenÕ t a household thing yet,Ó said Brittany Taylor, fundraising chair for the group said. Ò It lets people know about what we do, plus it raises some money for a good cause.Ó The race will take place at Titus Mountain Family Ski Center on Oct. 19. ItÕ s a 7 kilometer (about 4 and a half mile) race up and down the lower slopes of the mountain, and will traverse 19 obstacles including mud, climbing and endurance obstacles. There will also be events for spectators, plus craft and food vendors, and a live band. All participants receive a race T-shirt, and finishers will receive a special finishers dog tag. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers in male, female and teen categories.

The race starts at 1 p.m., with waves of starters going out every 20 minutes until 4 p.m.. Racers can request a time slot, but the slots are given out on a first-come, first-served basis, and when a slot is full, it is closed.

Currently 250 people have registered. Taylor is hoping to reach 500 adventurous runners by race day. For more information go to www.dirtydogrun.com, or check out their Facebook page at CVK9 Dirty Dog Run.

NYCO

From page 1 a land swap. In exchange for those 200 acres, NYCO is offering the state 1,500 of their property. The property they are offering has considerable road frontage, and is currently acting as a buffer, preventing hikers, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts access to the massive Jay Mountain wilderness to the east and west. The NYCO parcels, along with road frontage, have streams stocked with brook trout and the occasional salmon is caught in one of the streams. Only a positive vote by two consecutive state legislatures, and a yes vote on a state-wide ballot, can allow the land to transfer to private hands. NYCO has already gotten those positive votes from the legislature, in 2012 and 2013, and the measure will now come up to a state-wide vote. Ò The 200 acres was a parcel of property that the state got for back taxes,Ó said Theresa Sayward, retired New York State Assemblywoman. Ò The state is not giving up something that was purchased for environmental reasons.Ó Sayward has long been a proponent of the land swap. An exposed vein of Wollastonite can be seen commanding the exposed rock face just 25 feet from Lot 8. In some places there are only about 10 feet of Ò over-story,Ó or material that would need to be removed in order to begin mining. As part of the deal, when NYCO has mined all the Wollastonite from the 200 acres, they will Ò reclaim” the land, filling it in and placing topsoil, then seeding the ground. They will then turn the 200 acres back over to the state, along with the 1,500 from the land swap. Several acres of land on the NYCO mine land have already been reclaimed and are indistin-

guishable from the untouched land around it. Ò The time to do it, if we want to have access to Lot 8, is now,Ó said Mark Buckley, Environmental Health and Safety Officer with NYCO. “There may be a million tons there.Ó Buckley said that while the pit they are currently mining holds about 10 years of reserves, their buyers like to see 20 years worth of reserves in order to consider a mine viable. Without the extra 10 years of reserves, NYCO could face problems in years to come finding buyers for their product. NYCO is mounting a media campaign in order to get their message out to the voters. The measure, which will be on the ballot as Proposition 5, will be voted on in the upcoming elections on Nov 5. Along with bipartisan support in the state legislature for two consecutive years, numerous other agencies have come out in favor of the land swap. In a press release, William Janeway, Executive Director of the Adirondack Council said, Ò The proposed land swap now exceeds our standard for supporting Constitutional Amendments involving the Forever Wild clause.Ó According to the Council, the 1,500 acres the state would receive comprise better habitat for fish and wildlife, three miles of streams and has considerably more ecological value than the 200 acres which would be given up. The measure is also being supported by the United Steelworkers, the AFL-CIO, the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages, and local and state politicians including Gov. Andrew Cuomo. NYCO employs more than 100 people in their mining operations. In several instances employees have been working in the mines for generations.

“Songs to Keep” concert planned for Glitz Theater By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The final concert in the Ò Songs to KeepÓ concert series will be taking place Saturday, Sept. 21 at SUNY PlattsburghÕ s Glitz Theater, in Hawkins Hall. The Ò Songs to KeepÓ concert series is part of a project showcasing the songs and life of Marjorie Lansing Porter. Her Ballads and Lore collection is housed in the Feinburg Library Special Collections. Her songs and stories were recently digitized by SUNY Plattsburgh Communication Studies professor Dr. Timothy Clukey for the collection. Artists from across the North Country will be performing Lansing PorterÕ s works. Ò ItÕ s a really diverse selection of performers,Ó

said Carol Smith Pynchon, Communications Director at Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY). We are producing a CD (of Lansing PorterÕ s songs) and the artists will be performing the songs they do on the CD.Ó ItÕ s a family-friendly night of folk music, by some of the North CountryÕ s most accomplished folk musicians, according to Smith Pynchon. Following the concert will be a Concert Talk Back, and a reception. Patrons will have an opportunity to talk to the musicians, members of Lansing PorterÕ s family, and people involved in the Ò Songs to KeepÓ project. Tickets are $10 (free to SUNY students), and can be purchased at the door. The event starts at 7 p.m. More information can be found at www. TAUNY.org.

Musicians from the “Songs to Keep” concert series perform in the finale from a concert they played in Old Forge recently. Pictured, L. to R. are George Ward, Colleen Cleveland, Sue Grimm Hanley, John Roberts, Celia Evans, Dave Ruch, and Jamie Savage.

Gibson Brothers share songwriting tips at Pburgh Bluegrass Festival By Andy Flynn

andy@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ Between sets on the Plattsburgh Bluegrass FestivalÕ s big stage Saturday, Sept. 14, Eric and Leigh Gibson stepped into a garage-like stall of Building 16 at the Clinton County Fairgrounds to give a songwriting workshop. The Gibsons Ñ both graduates of SUNY Plattsburgh and natives of Ellenburg Depot Ñ seemed at ease as they pulled up two metal chairs in the back of the plywood-lined room. These 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Entertainers of the Year were surrounded by fans of all ages, including members of the SUNY Plattsburgh Bluegrass Club. Leigh, on the right, took out a guitar from his white case, and Eric, leaving his Deering banjo backstage after the first set of the day, took out a guitar from his black, sticker-decorated case. Both were still dressed in their black concert suits as they explained how and why they write songs. Ò One of my biggest thrills about doing this is getting to do original material on stage,Ó Eric said as he was tuning his guitar. Playing about 70 percent of original material on stage, the Gibson Brothers continue to write songs on a regular basis Ñ on their own, with each other, and with noteworthy musicians such as Tim OÕ Brien, Shawn Camp and Joe Newberry. Ò ItÕ s always a little nerve-wracking to present a song to Leigh or the rest of the band ... And weÕ ve both learned not to pout if the other guy doesnÕ t like one of our original songs,Ó Eric said, adding that they both have to agree on a song before they record it or play it in public. Both brothers write songs ... award-winning songs. Currently, Ò They Called It Music,Ó written by Eric Gibson and Joe Newberry, is the No. 1 song for September on the Bluegrass Unlimited charts.

One woman in the workshop audience asked if Leigh the band would play one of his songs even if Eric didnÕ t like it. Ò ItÕ s called the Gibson Brothers,Ó Leigh replied. Ò But you still do it, right?Ó she asked. Ò No,Ó Leigh said. Ò IÕ m sure there are things that IÕ ve written that I liked better than Eric likes but he thought it was good enough to be there with other songs that are being considered for the record. Then there are the songs that heÕ s written or that IÕ ve written that the first time you hear it, that’s going to be a focus. Like Ô They Called It Music,Õ the recordÕ s going to be built around that song.Ó Eric and Leigh sang several songs during the songwriting workshop, including Ò Something CominÕ to Me,Ó a song the brothers wrote with Shawn Camp and which is on their latest album, Ò They Called It Music.Ó They explained how the song was written in 2012 shortly after their father, Kelley, passed away. They werenÕ t in the right frame of mind to write songs, but they had to keep their songwriting appointment with Camp in Nashville. At one point, when Eric was frustrated about the process and Camp walked out of the room for a breather, he played a little bit of what became Ò Something CominÕ to MeÓ on the guitar. “I wasn’t thinking about it,” Eric said. “I was just fiddling around with that melody, and he (Camp) walked back into the room and said, Ô WhatÕ s that?Õ Ó Ò I said, Ô Ah, itÕ s nothing. ItÕ s just something coming to me,Õ Ó Eric said. Ò Of course, we talked about our dad passing away. And he said, Ô You know, IÕ d love to get your daddy in there.Õ So we got that verse in there ... ‘Daddy plowed the fields and worked the landÕ ... So that song means something, and Leigh sings it like it means something to him.Ó They didn’t finish the song in that first songwriting session with Camp. “We framed out the first verse, but nothing was really decided

or set in stone,Ó Leigh said. Ò We were coming back to Nashville a few weeks later ... He said, Ô Yeah, take it home.Õ I donÕ t think we had a lot of hope in it. But he said, Ô LetÕ s get back together in a couple weeks and do something, tweak it a little bit and work on it.Õ Ó The Gibson Brothers head to Massachusetts this weekend for a couple concerts before traveling to North Carolina next week for the IBMA World of Bluegrass convention and the Sept. 26 IBMA awards ceremony. The band is nominated for eight IBMA awards, the most of any bluegrass group this year. For more information, visit www.gibsonbrothers.com.

Parker Family Farm opens for maple season preview and production expo By Katherine Clark

katherine@denpubs.com WEST CHAZY Ñ Parker Family Maple Farm will host an open house for maple producers large and small as well as open up the farm for retail customers to visit and watch how maple syrup is made. The Parker Family Farm on Saturday Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will hold a welcome to fall celebration with an expo to demonstrate their new, energy efficient equipment to make maple syrup. “This is our first fall event and we’re hoping it will be our first annual event,” said store office manager Kristina Parker. The family farm has been in the Parker family since 1889. Parker said the farm originally was operated by the family as a dairy farm but has since transitioned to earning their income from the land. Ò We decided to hold this expo to showcase our new, energy efficient equipment and share that with other maple producers,Ó said Parker. Ò We use nature as a source of income, itÕ s a renewable resource, so by moving to the new form of technology weÕ re imposing less harm on the woods where we work and receive our livelihood.Ó

Recently the farm purchased a new wood pellet burning vaporizer which removes up to 75 percent of the water from the sap before it is put into the evaporator. During the expo there will be demonstrations using the new vaporizer as well as a tapping demonstration by Evan Branon to showcase a drill attachment he created which produces quality taps into the tree causing the least amount of damage. Ò With this tapper someone who might not be the best at tapping a tree can do it expertly,Ó Parker said. Michael Parker will offer woods walks. Dr. Michael Farrell Director, Cornell UniversityÕ s Uihlein Forest will be hosting a dropline tubing replacement seminar in the morning as part of SARE Research. Branon of Branon Systems will be on hand to demonstrate the Precision Tapper. The tapper creates a more consistent tap hole, increasing productivity and the health of the tree. Parker said she hopes people will stop in at the sugar house to see a wood pellet fired evaporator by CDL USA. Demonstrations will be offered throughout the day. A representative will be available to explain the benefits of burning wood pellets. Ò Now that we have this new technology we

want other maple producers to see if becoming more energy efficient will be right for them too,Ó Parker said. Nick Atherton, of CDL USA will offer a seminar on reverse osmosis maintenance. Atherton will talk about ways to increase the performance of your reverse osmosis and understanding reverse osmosis technology. There will be a pig roast style lunch offered compliments of Parkers to expo attendees.

Reservations are required to ensure the right amount of food. During the expo, Parker said the farmÕ s retail shop will be open to visitors to purchase products from the Maple Farm. For Oct. 5 only, there will be a 10 percent discount on equipment. For more information or to make a reservation call the Parker Family Maple Farm at 4936761 or email parkerfamilymaple@yahoo.com.

p.m. Realizing that a First Weekend in October and November will be substantially different from one in the summer, committee members are making a concerted effort to find locations where people can stop in and warm up, as well as pursuing activities that can be done in the cold. Several churches in the vicinity of First WeekendsÕ activities have expressed an interest in opening their doors for that purpose. Ideas discussed for October and November First Weekends included a snowman building/ ice sculpture contest, snow coloring, a Day of the Dead Dance Party, harvest olympics, a pet costume contest, and many more activities. A full list of performers and demonstrations was also discussed. On Dec. 6 there will also be a free jazz concert at SUNY Plattsburgh at 7:30 p.m.

First Weekend Committee meets shawn@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ PlattsburghÕ s Ò First WeekendÓ committee met this week to discuss upcoming First Weekends celebrations in November and December. The committee, in a tight vote, agreed to pursue asking the City of Plattsburgh to close the downtown portion of Brinkerhoff Avenue on Fridays, and continue to close City Hall Place on Saturdays. Their hope is to make First WeekendÕ s footprint wider, and benefit more business with increased foot traffic. They also decided to extend Friday hours from 5 to 8 p.m., while keeping Saturday hours at 1 - 5
