Keeseville dissolution vote Oct. 22 By Keith Lobdell

KEESEVILLE Ñ Keeseville will always be Keeseville, but a vote Tuesday, Oct. 22, will determine if it will continue to be a municipal entity or simply a hamlet shared by two towns and two counties. Voters will go to the polls from noon to 9 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Village Offices (58 Liberty St.) to determine the fate of the Keeseville Dissolution plan, which was accepted by the village board of trustees in July. A Ò yesÓ vote will accept the plan and lead to the dissolution of the incorporated municipality on Dec. 31, 2014. A Ò noÓ vote will defeat the plan, voiding the previous vote in February that favored dissolution by a tally of 268176.

essex County given control of horses By Katherine Clark

Honor Flight heads to D.C. despite shutdown PAGE 11

ESSEX Ñ Ownership of the 41 horses seized from an Essex Farm now lies with Essex County after the owner failed to produce a $43,890 bond for their care while the criminal investigation continues. Owners Shelley Wing, 59, and her daughter Emily Wing, 20, were unable to produce the bond by 6 p.m. Oct. 8. ÒT hey did not post bond, therefore I signed a forfeiture order turning ownership over to Essex County and the Essex County SheriffÕ s Department,Ó Essex Town Judge Stephen Sayward Jr. said. The transfer of ownership marks the

end of the civil portion of the case though the criminal investigation continues for the Wings. Both Shelley and Emily are charged with 41 counts of animal cruelty for failing to provide sustenance for the 41 horses at their 20-acre Essex farm, On A Wing and A Prayer. An anonymous tip from a neighbor led members of the SheriffÕ s department to the farm where it was discovered the 41 horses, including several foals, living in an area with more horses than allowable per acre. The pastures had little grass and the trees were stripped of their bark. The bones of a deceased horse were also found in the barn.

The horses were seized on Sept. 18 and 19. Many were taken to the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport while other horses continue to be cared for at private farms. Since the seizure, one of the horses has died. Shelley was arraigned Sept. 23. Sayward said police attempted to serve Emily on Sept. 26, but were unsuccessful. She was served and arraigned Sept. 27. The first hearing took place Oct. 7, without either party in attendance. Sayward said a request for both Shelley and Emily was granted that they could refrain from attending the proceedings.

Three charged with crimes against youth By Keith Lobdell LEWIS Ñ In the course of two days, three people have been arrested and charged with sexual crimes involving underaged children in Essex County. Jay residents Mark J. Devlin, 64, and Donna M. Tefoe, 40, were arrested and charged Oct. 8 with Criminal

Sexual Act First Degree (B felony), Sexual Abuse First Degree, (D felony) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child (A misdemeanor). The following day, in a separate case, Andrew P. Mullin, 47, of Elizabethtown, was arrested and charged with Rape First Degree, Forcible Compulsion (B felony) and Acting in a Manner to Injure a Child Under the Age of 17 (a misdemeanor). All three are being held in Essex County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail or $20,000 bond.

According to a New York State Police press release, Devlin and Tefoe were arraigned at the Town of Keene Court and were to reappear Oct. 10 at the Town of Jay Court at 6 p.m. The investigation into their case is still ongoing, and more charges are pending. In the case of Mullin, a lengthy investigation revealed that incidents leading to his arrest occurred in the Elizabethtown area in March of last year. Mullin was affiliated

with Shriner Õ s and MasonÕ s groups based in Essex and Clinton counties. He also participated in a program called the Ò Constellation Group,Ó which was for young girls. Troopers are asking those who recall their child being a part of this program or ever having interactions with Mullin to contact them at 897-2000.

There is a medical side to this, but there is also a physio-social side as well.Ó Along with the website, Fleury also helped to start a support group that is currently meeting on the fourth Sunday of each month at CharmÕ s Hands in Elizabethtown at 3 p.m. Ò Having a non-clinical space for the support group is a great thing,Ó Fleury said.

North Country SPCA


ave you thought about fostering an animal from the NCSPCA? We have an ongoing need for families who are willing to help some of our special animals develop social skills and prepare for transition to life in a Ò forever home.Ó If you have love and patience to give, but are not ready to adopt an animal, perhaps you will consider becoming a foster parent to one of our furry friends? We have both dogs and cats, large and small, who are desperately in need of some extra attention and nurturing outside the shelter environment. If you are interested, please call 873-5000 to learn more! Our featured pet this week is Clark, a positively adorable Beagle mix with the most soulful brown eyes you will ever see! Poor little Clark was found wandering the roads and is grateful to have a comfy bed to fall asleep on since he arrived at the shelter. Clark is an older fellow, but donÕ t let that sweet grey face fool you! He loves to go for walks, and bounces and jumps for joy when he sees you. Clark seems to like other dogs and is very quiet for a beagle - he only barks when itÕ s his turn to go outside for his walk. Like most dogs of his breed, he has a very gentle demeanor and would be a great companion for

Keeseville Rob Ivy • Farmers Market on Fridays at Juniper HillÕ s vegetable stand. Although the market is now done for the season, itÕ s been very enjoyable to get to know the other vendors and especially the regular customers, who come from all walks of life. My favorite is a cheerful woman who firmly believes in the restorative powers of kale and actually likes the taste. She buys a case every week and brings a large family entourage to help carry all of her other purchases. I also like the guy we call Ò The Man in BlackÓ and the two elderly English ladies who crack jokes and block traffic. There are even feisty folks from Ò the cityÓ who will happily argue just for the sport of it. Last weekÕ s topic was imported versus local garlic. On the farm itself, the summer greenhouses have been cleaned out and planted to spinach and other cold hardy leaf crops. The plan is to sell them over the winter but with the excellent weather of the last few weeks, theyÕ re going to be ready before Christmas. For a change, the weather Õ s been too good.

ime does get away from us especially as some of us are in the aging part of life, but I recently attended a meeting where we are starting to plan for the upcoming celebration as the town is turning 250 years old in 2015. We are looking to make this a special event and know that plans need to get started early. We are looking for any interested persons that would like to help in this planning, just let Charlie Lustig, Ron Bruno, Janice Allen know of your interest and they will let you know when the next planning meeting will take place. Also in the plans for 2014 we will be celebrating the anniversary of the Battle on the Boquet. They also need volunteers to help in these plans. It was great to see that our School Superintendant Stephen Broadwell was given a New York State Theatre Education Association Award of the year 2013. As a key person in our school he has been a strong supporter of building and maintaining a great arts department that joins the theatre, art and music departments working together.

Kyle Page • Flight wish to thank the countless individuals across the North Country who have supported these missions and done their part to honor the World War II veterans that waited so long for this. My thanks to the officers themselves of the North Country Honor Flight for providing this amazing service to our very deserving local veterans. Even with the loss of MacÕ s Grocery, a lot of construction is going on around Keeseville which is wonderful. Great to see our community growing. My cat and I are very happy to report that our chipmunk has finally been seen stuffing his cheeks full of seeds for the winter months. The honking Geese overhead are clearly forecasting the upcoming winter season. My neighbor was working today to set up his Halloween displays out in his yard. Time to get out and enjoy all the colorful and spooky sights our community has to offer.

Dissolution vote

Continued from page 1 Only residents of the Village of Keeseville, which is located in both Essex and Clinton counties as well as the towns of Ausable and Chesterfield, will be eligible to vote on the proposition. Since the permissive referendum petition, submitted to the village by Sandra Clodgo with 309 signatures from registered village voters, members of the board have been pushing for a vote against the dissolution plan, led by Mayor Dale Holderman. ÒY our board of trustees and I as your mayor are unanimously opposed to dissolving our village,Ó Holderman said in a letter to village residents. ÒO ur communityÕ s needs are the most important to us … A strong, fiscally responsible, community-minded village government is our answer to move into the future and make Keeseville the desired community to live.Ó Holderman also told residents that a lot has changed in his year as mayor. ÒL ook how far we have come,Ó he said. ÒT here are six new businesses on Front Street. There are new sidewalks going in. We have street paving going on and many safety items throughout the vil-

lage are being addressed.Ó Holderman also debates whether the towns of Ausable and Chesterfield could provide services for the former village at a reasonable cost, a claim both town supervisors dispute. ÒW e would have more real estate to take care of, but the highway superintendent did not feel the need to increase staff,Ó Ausable Supervisor Sandy Senecal said. ÒW e would be adding 3 miles of road, which wouldnÕ t involve needing a new truck for plowing. We have already been called to help with dog control and assessing, so that is already being done here. When the village opted not to have a code enforcement officer, ours had to step up to the plate. It would be a task, but we would figure it out.” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said his town always has village residents in mind when planning because they are also residents of the town. ÒM ayor Holderman talked like our town governments are foreign governments, not even in the village community, but truth be told we are in your community and our officials are elected by all of the town of Chesterfield residents, including those who live inside the village.Ó Morrow also agreed with Senecal concerning work previously done by the village.

Student-athletes from our schools are accomplishing some remarkable feats on the gridiron, in the gym, on the pitch, on the cross country course and in the pool. Peru looks like a state championship contender in football. Chazy is again dominating girls soccer. Ticonderoga hopes to be one of the top teams at this yearÕ s state cross country championship race. There’s plenty to cheer for — on and off the playing field. Many of the region’s best athletes are also the best students. ThatÕ s no surprise. Study after study has shown the positive aspects of interscholastic sports. A doctoral study of high school athletes in North Carolina has shown high school athletes routinely out-perform non-athletes in the classroom. Ò The most surprising aspect of the study was not that athletes as a whole do better, but the percentage of difference for each of the seven variables,Ó said Gary Overton of East Carolina University, who did the report. Ò To have a major difference in one would not have been surprising, but in all seven is a different story. And the differences held true for whatever comparison we were making or however we examined the data Ñ by gender, by different ethnic groups, no matter how we did it.Ó The study looked at grade point average, attendance rate, two different end-ofcourse testing components, discipline referrals, dropout rate and graduation rate. The results: Ñ the mean GPA for athletes was 2.98 and for non-athletes 2.17; Ñ the mean school on year-end tests in algebra was 8 percent higher for athletes and 11 percent better on year-end English exams; Ñ athletes missed 6.3 days of school a year compared by 11.9 for non-athletes; Ñ discipline referrals for athletes were 10 percent fewer than for non-athletes; Ñ the drop-out rate for athletes was less than 1 percent, while non-athletes left school at a rate of 10.32 percent; and Ñ high school athletes graduate at a rate of 99.4 percent; non-athletes 93.5 percent. OvertonÕ s study just looked at North Carolina high schools, but similar studies have been conducted by the University of Michigan, University of Kansas, University of Iowa and others. The results are all the same. Athletes generally fare better in a classroom than non-athletes. And it’s not just athletes who benefit from extracurricular activities. Studies looking at students in music, art and drama programs show similar results. These studies should not be a surprise to those of us who cheer from the sidelines and applaud in school auditoriums. Sadly, though, many of these successful programs have already been eliminated from area schools. Gymnastics, wrestling and swimming in the North Country are on life support. Almost every school in the region has made cuts to athletics the past few years — particularly at the modified and junior varsity levels — as school boards have struggled to balance budgets. And itÕ s not just sports. Music, art, drama and academic enrichment programs have been cut to meet the stateÕ s tax cap. Next spring school boards will again be faced with making difficult choices as they prepare budgets. Those of us who enjoy and support our students in extracurricular activities now should make a mental note to do the same in a few months by making that support known to school board members. While most of us enjoy the exploits of students on the playing field and in the auditorium, itÕ s important to remember itÕ s not all fun and games. Extracurricular activities teach lessons outside the classroom while serving as a source of entertainment and pride in a community. Ñ

Letters to the Editor

Respect signage

In favor of dissolution

Planning needed

To the Valley News: With the Fall comes elections and with elections, come roadside signs. Unfortunately with roadside signs also come vandalism, theft and moving signs from their original locations to locations that the perpetrators feel are humorous. While the culprits feel that this is supportive of their candidate, it actually casts a negative cloud on them as the public sees the untouched signs of a candidate as he or she being complicit in the theft or damage. While this may not be the case, it certainly gives that appearance. In some cases, the theft or damage to campaign signs can become a criminal offense and makes the perpetrator subject to arrest and prosecution. By all means, support your candidate. Talk up your candidate, work for them handing out fliers, going door to door, helping with mailings or whatever you need to do for support in helping your choice to be elected. But, the taking or damage to signs under cover of darkness does more harm than good and is not what the election process is all about. We have a system where anyone can put themselves up for public office and they all deserve a fair chance, not subject to sabotage in the dead of night. Please honor our system and leave the signs as they are placed. Richard Cutting Essex County Sheriff

To the Valley News: Residents of Keeseville, please remember to come out and vote Ò YesÓ on the plan for the dissolution of the Village of Keeseville on Oct. 2d, from noon until 9 p.m. The Mayor and trustees originally approved the plan, and are now telling us that it will have more of a negative impact than a positive one. If this is true, why would they have voted in support of the plan in the first place? Do you believe they have our best interest in mind? I believe most residents, as backed up by the overwhelming majority who voted yes on the dissolution of the Village, feel we need to start getting rid of layers of government. I have spoken with several residents of Peru, which was once a Village, and they have stated that dissolution had nothing but a positive effect on their community. I strongly urge everyone to come back out and vote again, to make sure our voices are heard. Nancy L. Booth Keeseville

To the Valley News: ThereÕ s been a lot of comments about planning lately in the newspaper Ð both for and against the idea. We all have heard the saying, Ò failing to plan is planning to failÓ but what does that really mean? I moved to this area because I love the area and I love our little town. I can understand peopleÕ s reluctance to see some sort of Ò planÓ put in place. I donÕ t want to live somewhere where IÕ m told what color I can paint my house or that I canÕ t build a tree house for my kids or a doghouse in my back yard, but I would like to share my personal experience of what can happen when there is no planning at all. I grew up on a farm in a very rural area of eastern Pennsylvania. Like many people in this area, my family had lived on the property for many generations. As a young girl I can remember standing in front of my house, and, except for my grandparentÕ s home and my uncleÕ s home that were also on our property, I was able to see only one other house in any direction Ð belonging to the farm across our street and about one-quarter mile up the road. However, around that time a man by the name of Levitt came to the area and started buying up local farms. He had built a small community in New York, but this time his plans were much bigger. Since there was no local building plan or zoning codes, he was free to do what he wanted. In just six years, Mr. Levitt changed the entire landscape of the area, building over 17,000 homes in the area. As surrounding farms and homeowners tried to sell their property, they found they could not get what they had expected for their homes so they ended up selling to developers who built townhouses, apartment complexes, and low income and government subsidized housing. In less than 10 years, the population in the area increased by almost 100,000. To support this increase in population, malls, shopping centers and other stores were built, followed by fast food restaurants, bars, Ò adultÓ book stores, strip clubs, and even a few head shops. Did this increase in the tax base reduce our taxes? No. The increase in population required more schools (over 40 new schools were built), roads, police, fire, etc., causing our taxes to go up. In addition, Interstate 95 was built behind us, taking a large portion of our family farm, and the traffic on the quiet country road I grew up on increased to a point that made living there unbearable. Planning is necessary to protect whatÕ s good about our town. To keep out large developers or to prevent certain types of business from opening in our town, we need to plan. If you are concerned about Elizabethtown’s plan – go to their website and read it (it’s available for anyone to read). If you see something you donÕ t like, go to the meetings, make your thoughts be known, but donÕ t get rid of it entirely. Change will happen. Planning for the changes is the only way that you can be sure the changes will be what you want. My father and grandfather never imagined their rural, country lifestyle would change the way it did in such a short period of time. Gail Testa Elizabethtown

Guest viewpoint

Making corrections To the Valley News: Let me introduce myself - Gerald Morrow; Supervisor for the Town of Chesterfield. I was a member of the Dissolution Study Committee that worked on the Village of Keeseville dissolution plan before it was presented and accepted by the Village Mayor and Trustees. I write this to correct the remarks the Mayor recently made in the MayorÕ s Corner letter that he sent out with the water bills at the expense of the Village Taxpayers. IÕ ll address each and every one of the MayorÕ s statements with the true facts not maybes or fiction. First I’m glad the Mayor admitted he opposes the dissolution that just shows he has a closed opinion not an open mind. As I always stated at the dissolution committee meetings or public meetings I am neutral on the dissolution and as always I will answer questions with the truth. The dissolution plan is not flawed as the Mayor claimed. The Mayor claimed the town employeesÕ salaries are more than the village employeesÕ salaries. The MayorsÕ statement that the townsÕ labor rates are higher than the villages is false. The truth is the village employeesÕ salaries are more than our town employeesÕ salaries. Our town has assumed, as IÕ ve stated in the past, the following services after the Village stopped provid-


ing these services for their residents; Assessing Unit, Dog Control Services, Court System and Code Enforcement/ Zoning Duties, with no extra costs to either the Village or Town taxpayers. The Mayor spoke about Ò they maintain control,Ó then why does the Village so very often send their residents to our Town of Chesterfield Office to receive their services fortunately we can assist them. Mayor Holderman talked like our town governments are foreign governments not even in your community, but truth be told we are in your community our Town Officials are elected by all the residents inside the Town of Chesterfield including the residents in the Village of Keeseville. Our offices are located in the Village of Keeseville, and my office door is always open at 1 Vine St., where you can find me on a regular basis. The Mayor took credit for the six new businesses including the new StewartÕ s Shop, like he was responsible for bringing them to Keeseville. No one person should take credit for the new businesses. The Mayor stated the Village Civic Center is valued at over $5 million dollars; the truth is the assessment on the Civic Center is slightly over $1.4 million according to the 2013 Town of Ausable Assessment Roll, in which all values are at 100 percent. He stated that the Village has a Planning Board, Zoning Board and a Building Inspector back on staff whom

In a recent article titled, Ó Thanks-for-Giving offered at Magic Pines,Ó which ran in the Oct. 12 edition of the Valley News, the hosts of the dinner, Barbara and Mike Marty were incor-

volunteer their services, the truth is the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals are volunteers, but the Building Inspector is on salary at $6,500 per year from the Village Budget. The Mayor stated that I vowed, as Supervisor, that there would be no tax increase if the Village dissolved, that is true, but the Mayor also stated or I will cut services, the only service I ever thought should be cut is rubbish removal, an expense the taxpayers pay for even if they donÕ t use it. What I said at the May 7 Town Board Meeting, which the Mayor was present at, was as follows: I give my word that you can take to the bank - due to the Village dissolution there will be no increase in taxes or I will resign as budget officer, the budget will be well within 2 percent tax cap I guarantee it. The Mayor stated that the cost of Town Government is higher than the Village, but the truth is the Town of Chesterfield tax rate is $5.34 per 1,000 of assessed value versus the Village of Keeseville tax rate of$7.50 per 1,000 of assessed value. As stated earlier IÕ ll always answer questions with the true facts. On Oct. 22, the Village Voters will go to the polls to decide the fate of the Village of Keeseville, whatever happens at least the residents have a say in the decision. Gerald Morrow Supervisor Town of Chesterfield

Westport Central School first-grader Henry Gibson tries to fit into the fire uniform worn by Westport Volunteer firefighter Ben Sudduth as part of the annual Fire Prevention Day at the school Oct. 11. Members of the Westport and Wadhams departments spent the morning talking to kids about the danger of fires and how to be prepared in case of one. Students also went outside to try out spraying the hoses and to look at the fire trucks. Then the firefighters were treated to lunch at the school. Photo by Keith Lobdell

Supervisor has plan to bring casino gaming here By Keith Lobdell CHESTERFIELD Ñ Essex County may be out of the running for one of three casinos planned to be built in New York in the next few years, but Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow believes there is still a way to bring gaming to the region. Essex County was left off the list of potential sites for a gaming facility by New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year after the state and the Akwesane Mohawk Tribe reached a deal that continued to give them exclusive gaming rights in the North Country. Morrow said that while that route did not pan out for the region, another might. Ò I was thinking, who says we have to do it?Ó Morrow said about government bringing gaming to Essex County. Ò I think that we should get in contact with the tribe and ask if they would want to open a casino.Ó As example, Morrow said he goes to Turning Stone in Verona several times throughout the year to watch shows and do some gambling. The casino is run by the Oneida Tribe, which purchased the land in the 1990s. Ò There has to be a way we could come up with a deal that they could take over the land and run a casino with the county being able to receive sales and occupancy tax,Ó Morrow said. Ò It would give so many employment opportunities to the area. Think of the jobs and the sales tax that it would provide here.Ó When asked where the casino would be located, Morrow said he felt the obvious choice would be at the former Frontier Town property in North Hudson. Ò I think that this is a win-win just to investigate the possibility,Ó he said. Ò You are talking about a location that is right off the Northway and would be attractive for shows and gaming.Ó Morrow said he would want to the see a facility that had the

ability to bring entertainment and lodging to the area as well as gaming. Ò If it were just about the gambling, I would probably never go to Turning Stone,Ó he said. Ò The draw is to get the shows there as well. I go to Verona to see Alan Jackson, Clint Black and Travis Tritt. If you have the shows and places to stay and amenities so you can go to a show, get something to eat after and have a place to stay, itÕ s something I think should be looked at.Ó Essex County Chairman and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said that the county can already look forward to an additional $450,000 in revenue if the statewide proposition to allow gambling in New York state passes. The proposition reads as follows: Ò The proposed amendment to section 9 of article 1 of the Constitution would allow the Legislature to authorize up to seven casinos in New York state for the legislated purposes of promoting job growth, increasing aid to schools, and permitting local governments to lower property taxes through revenues generated. Shall the amendment be approved?Ó The proposition will be part of the ballot for the Nov. 5 general election.

RSVP tea to be held PLATTSBURGH Ñ Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Clinton & Essex Counties (RSVP) is hosting a Friendly Reassurance Tea & Talk on Monday, Oct. 21. The Tea will be held at PlattsburghÕ s St. PeterÕ s Church Emmaus Room from 2 until 4 p.m. Tea, coffee and baked goods will be served. The Tea is for seniors 55-plus who are interested in finding out about volunteering as a friendly visitor, reassurance phone caller or respite caregiver. Current friendly visitors, telephoners and respite volunteers are welcome and encouraged. If you have some spare time and like the idea of making a real difference in someoneÕ s life by offering hope and support, phone Barb Brassard at 546-3565 or email to register.

Honor Flight heads to Washington despite shutdown

By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ At just past dawn on a crisp Saturday morning, Ò ReveilleÓ sounded over the parade ground at the old base oval, as a large American flag slowly crept up the flagpole. As it did, 15 North Country World War II veterans, some bent with age, one standing with the help of a walker, straightened with pride and offered a crisp military salute to the flag. This was the opening volley of the send-off ceremony Oct. 12 for the most recent trip by North Country Honor Flight to the Washington D.C.Õ s World War II Memorial, Iwo Jima Monument, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at the Arlington National Cemetery. On hand to see them off were a throng of family members, veterans representing all of America’s major conflicts since their service down to the present, a full police band complete with bagpipes, uniformed police officers from nearly every agency in the North Country, and numerous civilians who just came out for the send-off. A contingent of Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts passed out American flags to the waiting crowd. After a brief speech by Plattsburgh Mayor Donald Kasprzak, Honor Flight Director Daniel Kaifetz called each veteran individually. They walked the short, flag lined stretch of pavement to the waiting limousine, past the police band and two rows of flag waving family and friends. Many in the crowd saluted as they passed. Once they were boarded, most of the spectators hurried to the Clinton County Airport ahead of the veterans, where another send-off ceremony awaited. While the parking lot cleared, the ground shook as several dozen motorcycles, part of the escort for the short trip to the airport, roared to life. The long phalanx of bikers, many veterans themselves wearing patches denoting their service, stretched from the oval parking lot well through the traffic circle on U.S. Avenue. Finally the Honor Flight’s limousine, followed by a dozen police cars, left the parking lot and headed for the airport, and ultimately Washington D.C. The government shutdown did not hamper the veterans from seeing any of their monuments. Since an Honor Flight from Mississippi pushed their way past National Park Service barricades on the first day of the government shutdown, the Park Service has made a special exception for Honor Flights at the monuments they visit. Non-Honor Flight visitors have been kept out of the monuments, but during the recent visit of the North Country Honor Flight, numerous civilians managed to get past the barricades as well. The World War II monument, and the initial attempt to keep veterans out, has become a symbol of the government shutdown, and a flash-point for protests against the shutdown. On Sunday a protest was organized which started at the World War II memorial, and protestors marched to the White House carrying signs and chanting protest slogans. At the White House protestors were met by helmet-clad police officers at the building’s perimeter. Protestors throughout the District ignored signs and pushed aside barricades to re-claim other monuments which have been closed since Oct. 1. The protests werenÕ t limited to Washington. In Valley Forge National Park a group of runners organized a run through the park to protest the closure. More pretests are planned throughout the week. The North Country Honor Flight returned Saturday night without incident.

APA sends Willsboro airport request to public hearing

By Keith Lobdell RAY BROOK Ñ A Willsboro project once deemed complete is heading to a round of public hearings through the Adirondack Park Agency (APA). During the APA meetings Oct. 10 and 11, the Regulatory Programs Committee first denied an appeal of Sunset Farm, Ltd. owner Daniel Arbour after confusion over the status of the application to use the property as a private airport. The committee then recommended that the application go through a public hearing. The confusion over the application was described by Sunset Farms attorney Matt Norfolk, who stated his client received word from the APA in April 2012 that the application had been ruled complete. Agency staff then sent a notice that more

information was needed. Ò Any tribunal would be able to see that we have all of the permits and permission that we need now with the exception of the APA,Ó Norfolk said. Ò We have a written determination from the town that the use of this land as an airport is not against town ordinance. We have the permission of the DOT and FAA, which took us almost a year to get.Ó Norfolk also appealed on procedural issues, stating the written notice of the change was not sent using certified mail. Mike Hill, attorney for a neighboring property, said the applicant had not done enough to receive completed application approval. Ò The previous notice of completion had been issued in error by the APA,Ó he said. Ò The applicant has not submitted all of the needed information that the APA needs and was seeking. We have raised

questions and asked that the APA seeks more information. They have sent you some of that, but not all.Ó Currently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does include information about the Sunset Farm airport on its website, It lists the status of the field as “operational,Ó managed by Arbour and located on 100 acres at 3061 Essex Road. The airport is proposed to consist of one grass runway measuring 1,500 feet by 75 feet. There is no control tower, but there will be a wind indicator. Ò All we are talking about is a grass strip of land with a 7-foot wind sock,Ó Norfolk said. Ò We have the blessing of the zoning officer, town, DOT and APA. Let’s start going forward.Ó The APA has yet to post a public hearing date for the Sunset Farm, Ltd. application on their website,

ECH starts annual fundraising campaign ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Elizabethtown Community HospitalÕ s 2013 annual fundraising campaign is underway. The annual appeal is conducted primarily through a letter that is mailed to people in the hospitalÕ s service area and to donors who live outside of the area. The appeal letter provides information about the hospitalÕ s inpatient rehabilitation program which allows patients to recover at the local hospital after having surgery or treatment at another facility. It also explains the benefits of receiving this important care, closer to home. Ò The hospitalÕ s annual campaign is designed to serve two important and complimentary purposes,Ó explained Jane Hooper, director of community relations for the hospital. Ò Each year, the letter serves to introduce a specific service that the hospital offers. It also reminds people about the importance of considering a donation to the hospital; one of the communityÕ s largest notfor-profit organizations.” The 2013 annual appeal letter explains that in the days following surgery, or once a patient is feeling better after an acute illness, he or she can ask to be transferred to Elizabethtown Community Hospital and into the inpatient rehabilitation program where patients can recuperate closer to their home community, friends and family. According to Hooper, there are some significant differences between this program and others in the region. Ò The patient is followed throughout all stages of recovery,Ó said Hooper. Ò From the emergency room or primary care office to the pre-surgical consultation with a therapist, and into the hospital-based rehab program, the patient is monitored and assisted by a team of caregivers. There are therapist-assisted home visits and outpatient rehab once the patient is discharged. Throughout the entire process, nurses, pharmacists, physicians and therapists follow the patientÕ s progress. Continuity of care is incredibly important; this is what makes the program at ECH different from others in the region.Ó The Ò home visitsÓ are one of the most important pieces of the therapy program. Once inpatient-based therapy is complete, but before a patient is discharged from the hospital, the therapy team travels with the patient to their home to help develop specific strategies for navigating his or her home. Everything from climbing stairs to getting in and out of bed may be discussed; relieving


anxiety and ensuring a safer transition. Elizabethtown Community Hospital, like any non-profit organization, appreciates the generosity of individuals within the local communities. This hospital ensures that gifts from the community enhance or increase healthcare services at the main hospital facility and its community-based health centers. Some organizations count on annual contributions to help balance a budget deficit; but that is not the case at ECH. Ò We donÕ t do that because it can lead to a future shortfall and distort future planning. In addition, this hospital is financially well-managed,Ó said Hooper. Ò Gifts received during the hospitalÕ s annual campaign are put toward additional equipment, patient care items or a specific purchase.” Ò Healthcare is one area that is often a target of federal budget reduction,Ó said hospital CEO Rod Boula. Ò Grant funding for various initiatives, along with reductions in payment from Medicare and Medicaid to hospitals are shrinking. Hospitals like ours undertake annual fundraising initiatives to maintain the ability to develop new services for patients.Ó Tax-deductible contributions to the hospital can be made electronically through its website at or by check made payable to Elizabethtown Community Hospital. Checks should be sent to: ECH Community Relations Department, P.O. Box 277, Elizabethtown, N.Y. 12932. The campaign runs through Dec. 31.
