Snowmobilers prep for highoctane race


Americans, Canadians to face off at Airborne By Pete DeMola PLATTSBURGH Ñ For some winter sports enthusiasts, humming along on flat scenic trails on off-the-shelf snowmobiles doesnÕ t quite scratch that adrenaline itch. The more adventurous compete in snocross, the extreme racing sport that sees riders navigating customized highperformance sleds through artificially-constructed tracks at speeds as high as 60 miles per hour. ItÕ s like motocross, the more familiar sport in which motorcycles engage in ballet-like off-road racing, but swap out the terrain and equipment and drop the temperature low enough to maintain the slick raceways necessary for competition. Some courses have riders launching themselves 40 feet CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

PLATTSBURGH/LAKE PLACID Ñ When it comes to sporting equipment for handicapped athletes, there are very few places in the country where you can find an expert in the field. One of those very few places is right here in the North Country. Jeff Erenstone, owner of Mountain Orthotics and Prosthetics in Lake Placid and Plattsburgh, is one of the preeminent designers and builders of adaptive sporting equipment in the country. From a hockey skate for an athlete missing their lower leg, to a skeleton sled for a paraplegic athlete with no arms, to a specially designed and built foot made for rock climbing, if it will help an adaptive athlete to compete in a sport, Erenstone can design and build it. The Lake Placid native is sought out by athletes from around the country, and his gear can be found anywhere from a pick-up hockey game at a local pond, to the Empire State and Paralympic Games. ErenstoneÕ s practice specializes in Ò regularÓ prosthetics and orthotics, but equipping athletes is a passion. “It’s enjoyable to help someone achieve their goal. It’s obvious and attainable,” said Erenstone. “They’re trying to return to CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Glenn Giltz Auditorium in Hawkins Hall on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. Tickets are $10 general admission. All students get in free. The program, titled Ò Contrasts,Ó features the premiere of the new work Ò Living ThingsÓ by Montreal composer Melissa Hui and commissioned by the Adirondack Wind Ensemble. Also on the program are Sergei Prokofiev’s “March, Op. 99,” PDQ Bach’s “Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds and Percussion” and H. Owen Reed’s “La Fiesta Mexicana.”

The Adirondack Wind Ensemble is composed of professional wind and percussion instrumentalists, who are primarily music educators from around the North Country.

Sand/salt use up throughout region By Seth Lang PLATTSBURGH — Officials throughout the region are using more sand and salt on area roads this winter. An unusual number of ice storms and temperature fluctuations have many local highway departments exhausting their supplies at a rapid pace. Ò The ice storms weÕ ve had this year have demanded a significant more amount of sand and salt than normal snow storms,Ó said Westport Highway Superintendent Dennis Westover. Ò WeÕ ve already used what we did all of last year and there’s still a lot of winter left.” The town of Moriah is facing a similar plight, according to Moriah Highway Superintendent Jamie Wilson. Ò WeÕ ve depleted most of our reserve, and still have not received a salt order we placed before Christmas,” Wilson said. According to the Essex County Department of Public Works Supervisor Anthony LaVigne, the cost of transportation to the county is compounding the problem. “Essex County has the highest cost of transportation because itÕ s the furthest distance from any of the sources,” LaVigne said. Livigne pointed out that the county tries to keep at least a 30 percent reserve at all times, maintaining 9,000 - 10,000 yards for an estimated annual use of 6,000 yards. Hamilton County is also having a problem with transportation. Ò WeÕ ve had a problem with our contractor getting salt, but havenÕ t heard anything from the Department of Transportation (DOT) in regards to a shortage of any kind,Ó said Hamilton County Highway Superintendent Tracy Eldridge. Deputy Highway Superintendent of Operations in Warren County Todd Beadnell also mentioned delivery issues in their county. Ò We received a call from the town of Ticonderoga stating theyÕ re having delivery issues with salt,” said Beadnell. “The county supply is all set, however, we have enough reserve.” Like Westport, officials in the Clinton County town of Peru said they also have used an exor-

bitant amount of sand and salt. Peru Highway Superintendent Michael Farrell said his town has already used more salt and sand than they did all of last year. “We’re using a heavier salt mixture due to the icy weather but donÕ t foresee a shortage unless the ice storms persist. We have a salt shed with plenty of reserve,” he said. He also stated that he placed an order for salt and received it the next day. Highway officials in another town in Clinton County also said theyÕ ve used much more in supplies than the last few years. Town of Plattsburgh Highway Superintendent Jim Woods said so far this year they’ve used 623 loads of salt/sand mix to date. That compares to 479 loads in all of last year and 211 the year before. “Our crew has 90 hours overtime per man to date this year, which is up from last year’s 50 hours per man. These ice storms have caused problems with ice build up on our back roads. However, we have plenty of reserve on hand and donÕ t foresee any problems unless winter drags on much longer than usual,” Woods said. Through the entire region one thing remains constant; the icy weather has caused an increase in usage on supplies, and if the weather continues, towns could be scraping the bottom of the barrel to keep their roads safe.

Mountain Lake PBS launches KIDS writers’ contest PLATTSBURGH Ñ Mountain Lake PBS is once again encouraging early elementary-aged students to stretch their creative wings by hosting the PBS KIDS Writers Contest. For 20 years, thousands of local kids in grades K-3 have participated in this annual contest. Supported by national and local on-air promotion and robust online assets, we expect this to be another great year for the Mountain Lake PBS KIDS Writers Contest. This educational campaign empowers kids to use their unique voices and build literacy skills by writing and illustrating their very own stories Ð and then entering the Mountain Lake PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Each child’s participation is recognized with a certificate, and winning entries will be invited to a special celebration at the station, and have the chance to move on to the national competition. National winners will be recognized with a variety of prizes such as e-readers.

In addition to encouraging kids, the PBS KIDS Writers Contest helps families and teachers use creative writing as a literacy building skill. With the support of content and tools from PBS LearningMedia and PBS Parents, this contest will tap into the support of those who matter most in kidsÕ lives, parents and teachers, and help them encourage kids throughout our community to write, illustrate and enter. Ò Kids naturally have a keen sense of curiosity and incredible imaginations,” said Jane Owens, Director of Outreach and Education at Mountain Lake PBS. “The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest will provide a safe community platform for North Country children to express their ideas while fostering key early literacy skills such as story-telling.” Applications and additional information are available at http://

Opinion North Countryman Editorial

Tobacco customers should be 21 or older


here’s still time to make a pair of important New Year’s health resolutions. Smokers should make every effort to quit. Society should make every attempt to prevent people from starting to smoke — including raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21. WeÕ ve known the dangers of smoking for years, but a milestone this month should serve to remind us smoking kills. It was 50 years ago this month a landmark U.S. Surgeon General’s report that linked smoking with bad health was issued. It was the first time Americans were told directly smoking kills. The government has updated the report 32 times in the five decades since. Those reports, along with the work of doctors and other health professionals, have made an impact. In 1965, 42 percent of the population smoked. Today, 19 percent of Americans do, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC claims government anti-smoking efforts have saved 8 million lives. That’s wonderful progress, but work remains to be done. An estimated 43.8 million Americans still smoke and experts claim the decline in smoking has plateaued. People aren’t quitting anymore. Smoking remains the No. 1 cause of preventable death in the United States. It kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious disease, firearms and traffic accidents, according to the CDC. About 443,000 Americans die from smoking-related illnesses every year, according to the U.S. Department of Health. Americans know smoking kills. It’s becoming more and more socially unacceptable. It’s expensive. It’s banned in most public places. Yet millions continue to do it. Why? A combination of psychological and biological factors are to blame, according to scientists. Ò The chemicals in cigarettes work on the structures deep within a smokerÕ s brain, literally rewiring it so the habit becomes deeply ingrained,Ó Jed Rose, the director of the Duke Center for Smoking Cessation in North Carolina, said in a recent CNN report. “Every move a smoker makes: the lighting of the cigarette, the inhaling, all the feelings and sensations of it, the whole package becomes highly addictive.” Most smokers believe its easy to quit — before they actually try to stop, according to scientists. “Ultimately, they will lose their capacity to make a free choice to smoke,” Rose said. “Then 30 years later, thatÕ s when we typically see them in our program desperately trying to quit, because now they can’t go a single day without (a cigarette).” The World Health Organization has termed tobacco a “gradual killer.” It notes many young people start to smoke believing they can stop before suffering ill effects. While it’s never too late to quit, quitting is often much tougher than simply recognizing the problem. Avoiding cigarettes all together is the best way to steer clear of tobacco-related addiction and illness. That means keeping them away from children and young people, which is the reason many are calling for an increase in the legal age to 21 to purchase cigarettes. New York City had already taken that action. Some New York counties — Nassau and Suffolk on Long Island — have raised the legal age for purchasing cigarettes to 19. New York State should follow their lead. If not, local governments should. While tobacco advertising has been banned on television and the dangers of cigarettes have become well known, temptation remains. Several studies show tobacco marketing and advertising works and increases the likelihood that youth will start smoking. In 2011, cigarette companies spent $8.37 billion on ads and promotional expenses in the United States alone, according to the CDC. That breaks down to about $23 million a day or $27 for every American per year. Tobacco use is an issue everyone should care about — smokers and non-smokers. It’s expensive for everyone. Smoking cost the United States more than $193 billion a year, according to the CDC, including $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in direct health care expenditures. That’s an average of $4,260 per adult smoker. It’s a price we all pay. Ñ

Style & Substance: on assisting aging parents

Denton Publications, Inc.

Northern Office

January 18, 2014

Dear style & substance: I was recently the Ò least busyÓ of my siblings, so was the obvious choice to come home to the Plattsburgh area to assist my aging parents with making some decisions about much needed assisted living and cleaning up the house where we all grew up. This is so much more emotional than I had imagined and I am really struggling not only with my parents but with my own emotions. Any suggestions? To start, there are two sides to this coin that got flipped or the short straw that got pulled to choose YOU as the designated helper….you can decide that it was a bad draw because it is inconvenient, frustrating and a place where criticism is at a premium from your siblings OR you can see it as a lasting gift you can give to your parents and yourself because you decided it was special, meaningful and necessary. Your choice! Perhaps you can also just accept the emotional ups and downs you will experience during your time at “home”. Letting the emotions come and go throughout this time allows you to be a little less attached to them. Your parents, even though you havenÕ t lived with them recently, have a very powerful place in your heart, and therefore evoke emotions that may blindside you! Let them flow! Clarify what you are trying to accomplish with this journey home. Let your parents know that this transitional process is their ship to steer, you are merely the assistant. Engaging your parents in conversations through memories and stories is a perfect way to spend time in cleaning and preparing for the next phase in their life. This oral tradition of your family may surprise and delight you, in that the things they have kept (which may seem like “worthless stuff” to you) are very meaningful and have a story to be told. You may choose to box things up for siblings. This process can make a quiet and withdrawn parent come alive. Record little notes to pass on and definitely use your voice to reminisce as well. These stories can be reintroduced during meals, a traditional time to come together. They have the power to bring joy, or in other cases, closure to unfinished business or emotions you have carried with you over the years. You may find that the tasks seem endless; there may be cleaning, organizing, packing, and on top of this, the tasks of daily living; shopping, meals, bill paying, and so onÉ make a daily

list and share this with your parents. This will give you a sense of order and may alleviate some of the fears or concerns your parents have. It can be tremendously overwhelming, so prioritizing, getting input from doctors, and talking to both home care agencies and visiting facilities is a good way to start. These resources can provide a structure for your parents that allow them to maintain independence and dignity. Do not forget to have fun and some sweetness by pampering them a little. Your parents may have been struggling with minimizing everything in their lives because of their limitations and will really appreciate having some of the burden lifted; by having a driver, a meal out, an information gatherer, or a kitchen assistant. Pamper yourself; reconnect with old friends, enjoy some of the changes that Plattsburgh has made, and get some exercise. Many times when we believe our sole job is to care for someone else, we become resentful and stubbornly refuse to care for our own well-being. Offer your parents your best self. Lastly, find a stream-lined way to communicate with your siblings. They will all most likely be calling and you end up repeating information, which caught at a bad time, could change the tone. E-mail and group texts are easiest and least emotional. Clarify with all of them, that they trust you and are not going to be overly critical or controlling.

the things they had been doing before. It’s life-fulfilling for them.” While helping all adaptive athletes back to their sports is fulfilling for him, it’s working with children that Erenstone takes special pleasure. He has been attending Camp No Limits for eight years. Camp No Limits is a camp that takes place in various locations around the country, where handicapped children are able to meet other children with similar handicaps, and learn how to just be a kid. Some disabled children, Erenstone says, might come from smaller towns where they are the only child, for instance, miss-

Executive Chef Rob Davis preparing a meal in Irises Cafe and Wine Bar’s kitchen in downtown Plattsburgh. Photo by Shawn Ryan

By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ Whether itÕ s brewing a craft IPA in Lake Placid, or scratch-making a French Bechamel sauce at one of the many Northern Tier restaurants heÕ s worked at over the years, Rob Davis is a self-described foodie, who taught himself to be a chef. Davis started his working life in restaurants, usually working in the “front of the house.” But all the while he was picking up techniques, and honing them at home, where he still loves to cook and experiment. Ò If an individual wants to get educated, with the technology that is available, it’s literally there at your fingertips,” says Davis. Davis has a love for reading, and added cook books from the Culinary Institute of America and other culinary juggernauts to the Faukners and Dostoevkies in his reading rotation. Coupled with the lessens he had picked up over the years, and the experimenting he was doing at home, over time Davis became locally respected for his culinary talents. In a field where many have culinary school educations, cooking is one place where a self-taught person can still compete. Davis sees value to both types of backgrounds. He’s seen people coming out of culinary schools who didnÕ t have the ing a limb. They get to Camp No Limits, and they see other kids running on their prosthetics, and they start to run. “Every kid is an athlete,” says Erenstone. Along with helping people return to an active life, conquering the individual design challenge of each new case is rewarding for Erenstone. For some applications Erenstone might start with a readily available prosthetic device, like a Flex-Foot Cheetah running blade, and it can be adapted to the particular person and sport. For others, however, there might be nothing on the market to start from. For these cases, Erenstone just starts from scratch. “I love the design challenge. You have no idea the amount of forces and situations you run into in an adaptive sport situation. You have to combine support with mobility, in a nice enough package that they will want to use it,” he said.

still-set to run a restaurant, and vice-versa, has seen self-taught chefs who lacked some of the finer points to the culinary arts. Ò You have to be creative, but do it day after day, week after week. You should enjoy food for what it is.” He became Brew Master at the Great Adirondack Steak & Seafood in Lake Placid, which he left in 2004 when he bought the Tamarac Inn, just outside Malone. It was at the Tamarac that his growing experience in both the culinary and business end of running a restaurant finally came together. A massive fire brought an end to the Tamarac, and the Massena native moved back to Lake Placid to cook in or run some of the finer named restaurants in that foodie mecca. Just this past summer, he decided to move to Plattsburgh, and in July he brought his resume around, just to see what was available. What he found was an Executive Chef position at Downtown Plattsburgh’s Irises Café and Wine Bar, where he has seamlessly transitioned to their menu, which he calls Ò An American spin on classic cuisine.” He lists French cuisine as his favorite to cook. “It’s been executed and refined over so many centuries, it’s hard to argue with,” he says. With his French cuisine backbone and varied experience, Davis can spin off to any style cuisine that the menu or specials call for. With his love of cooking both at home and in the restaurant, and an inquisitive, studious nature, the options coming out of Irises kitchen are sure to keep growing. Unfortunately, Erenstone only sees his business picking up in the future. With over a decade of Americans at war, he has already seen an influx of soldiers in adaptive sports. Whenever there is a war, Erenstone says, there is a huge increase in technology in the field. Where he sees the technology increasing the most, currently, is in the use of computers in prosthetics, as well as in adaptive sports. Soldiers, he says, are the kind of people who were typically active before their injury, and are going to stay active after, just the kind of person who goes into adaptive sports. Wherever that technology might lead, there is no doubt that Erenstone will be using it to equip adaptive athletes and get them back into competition, or off the sidelines for the first time.

PERU Ñ Renton is a great dog who was surrendered by his owners because they couldnÕ t care for him any more due to financial and physical hardship. Renton can sit, stay, lay down, and roll over on command. He gets along with other dogs, kids and cats. He has really helped the kittens in the office become socialized to dogs. Renton is prone to ear infections although he currently is in good health. We did remove a large mass on his upper left gum line and put him on a grain free diet per our vet. Renton is now current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heart worm and is neutered. Renton pulls a bit on the leash, but he loves to go for walks. Renton loves to lounge around all day. He would love to find a home in a mellow house hold where he can be with his people a lot. Renton barks when he is kenneled and would prefer to be around his people, or another dog, as much as he can. Come in and meet this wonderful dog who is looking for his forever home.

Scholarship supports CVPH nurses’ continuing education

By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH — Since 2010 the Foundation at CVPH has been helping to finance continuing education for registered nurses through a special in-house scholarship. Nurses who have an AssociateÕ s Degree can apply for the

Nursing Scholarship, and work toward their Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. The scholarship pays for tuition, books, software and even child care. The classes are held on site one day a week, through Plattsburgh State. Some classes are offered online as well. When they graduate, participants will have a Plattsburgh State bachelor’s degree.

Ò Health care is rapidly changing, and we need to advance with it,” said Molly Ryan, Manager of Community Outreach at CVPH. “It’s important that our RNs have the skill set they achieve through the BSN, so anything we can do to support our RNs in this economy we will do.” Professional development, Ryan says, has always been important to CVPH. The program is also a selling point for CVPH when they are recruiting new RNs to come to the hospital. Tara Ebere, an RN at CVPH, is participating in the program, and will graduate next year. The program, she says, takes away much of the stress and pressure of trying to afford college while working full time. Ebere had been taking classes on her own, when she was urged to apply for the scholarship. To qualify, a registered nurse must be full-time at the hospital, and must be able to demonstrate financial need. Ò When I got my associateÕ s degree, I said IÕ m going back for my bachelor’s. At the time it was maybe my bachelor’s, now it’s definitely my masters,” said Ebere. The Foundation will be welcoming Ontario’s Glengarry Bhoys to Olive Ridley’s for a two day fund-raiser to benefit the Nursing Scholarship. The Bhoys come to Plattsburgh every year to support the Foundation. Olive Ridley’s, as well, supports the fundraiser every year. Ò Matt Spiegel is a big supporter of the Foundation, and has always made room at his establishment to support this,Ó said Ryan. They will be playing on Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1. Local musicians, all of whom work at CVPH, will be opening for the Bhoys. Jan. 31 will feature Doctors Craig Hurwitz and Michael Kanevsky. Feb. 1 will feature Catish & Bodega. “They always have a great turnout,” said Ryan. Tickets are $20 each night, or $35 for both nights. They are available at the CVPH Community Outreach Office, at Olive Ridley’s, or online at events.

Cuomo: boost education, spur industry, promote biomass — and cut taxes By Thom Randall ALBANY — In a State-of-the-State speech that mixed political grandstanding with charting a course for the future, Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed borrowing billions of dollars to boost technology in schools, cutting an array of corporate and individual taxes, and strengthening anti-corruption and bribery laws. He also called for legalizing limited medical uses of marijuana, granting bonuses of $20,000 for outstanding teachers, reducing the corporate tax rate to zero for upstate manufacturing businesses, and strengthening punishment for young drivers who text while driving. He also proposed a law that would permanently revoke a driverÕ s license after a third conviction for drunk driving. CuomoÕ s presentation, titled Ò Building on Success,Ó was apparently drafted to set the stage for his re-election campaign Ñ about half his speech touted the achievements of his first term.

Cuomo: Tax cuts will boost prosperity

His tax cut proposals, announced earlier this week, total $2.2 billion. They are aimed at curbing an exodus of people and corporations Ñ concerned about preserving their assets Ñ from the state. He said that whether New Yorkers were wealthy or had modest incomes, they were taxed far too much. Cuomo called for a two-year property-tax freeze for middleclass families, noting that municipal and school taxes, as a proportion of home value, are exceedingly high in upstate New York. In this plan, homeowners who live in municipalities that stay within the 2 percent tax cap will receive a rebate that equals any annual increase in taxes. In addition, he proposed a property tax “circuit breaker” that would give low and modest-income homeowners a state income tax credit of $1,000 for those earning $120,000 or less. A similar tax credit would be extended to taxpayers whose income was $100,000 or less. Also proposed was raising the threshold of the stateÕ s estate tax, allowing citizens to pass more assets down to their heirs without taxes. Noting that thousands of New Yorkers now move to Florida so they can avoid estate taxes, he proposed raising New York’s estate tax threshold from $1 million to the current federal level of $5.5 million — and lowering the top tax rate to 10 percent. For manufacturers, Cuomo suggested a zero percent corporate income tax rate for upstate enterprises and a 20 percent corporate property tax credit statewide — both to boost job creation and entice out-of-state and foreign firms to relocate in New York. He also suggested cutting the corporate franchise tax rate from 7.1 to 6.5 percent — and eliminating a utility surcharge tax of 2 percent to boost businesses’ competitive edge.

Education technology a top priority

In the realm of education, Cuomo proposed borrowing $2

billion for a Smart Schools initiative that would provide computer equipment including servers, wireless networking, digital teaching tools and administrative programs for school districts. It would also equip students with computer tablets and desktop consoles Ñ as well as promoting broadband access throughout communities. Ò The most effective long-term strategy is to have the best education system in the world — period!” he said.

Plan to extend pre-k, reward excellence

Cuomo also said full-day pre-kindergarten should be universal throughout New York, adding that the state should bankroll constructing the classrooms needed. Also proposed was boosting the partnership between high schools, colleges, government and employers to prepare students for fulfilling technology careers in-state. Cuomo also said that free tuition to SUNY colleges, 4-year or 2-year, should be extended to high school students who rank in the top 10 percent of their respective classes. Expressing alarm about a downstate case of extreme religious harassment, Cuomo proposed requiring all schools to report incidences of harassment or bullying to a variety of authorities.

Initiatives eyed to increase tourism

Tourism is also to be a focus of economic development in the plan. Rather than requiring outdoor sports enthusiasts to carry separate various hunting, fishing, trapping and boating licenses Ñ and a state parks pass Ñ citizens could have them all appearing as icons on their drivers’ license. Cuomo also announced his plan Ñ without divulging details — to create 50 new “outdoor access projects” that would include building new boat launches, erecting hunting blinds and constructing new trails and parking areas.For the state parks, Cuomo calls for computer-automating the reservation, permit and park entry functions. Ò LetÕ s redouble our tourism efforts, because in New York, seeing is believing,” he said. “Once people come here, they’re hooked.” Also, he proposed erecting highway signs Ñ coupled with smartphone apps Ñ that direct people off Interstate routes to local cultural attractions. “Our goal is to get tourists off the highways and into our communities to boost local commerce,” he said. Cuomo also set a timetable for casino development plans upstate, calling for bids to be due in June, with sites and gaming operators to be announced by October.

Infrastructure reconstruction proposed

Concerned about the vulnerability of the stateÕ s infrastructure to the recent emergence of violent, destructive storms, Cuomo proposed embarking on a major $17 billion project to reconstruct and upgrade bridges, subway tunnels railways and utility installations to make them withstand such events Ñ and help

communities be adequately prepared. The “Reimagining New York for a New RealityÓ program would also help individuals, businesses and communities recover from past storm events, boost emergency preparedness and response capabilities, as well as construct coastal protection barriers, floodproof vehicle tunnels and major utility infrastructure. A sum of $7.1 billion would go toward rebuilding 100 bridges that were either damaged by the storms of recent years, or upgrade those vulnerable to future storms. Five of these bridges are in the Adirondack Park. Ò This will be the largest reconstruction project the state has ever undertaken,Ó he said, noting the Rebuild NY initiative would be underwritten by federal money. Also proposed was developing a new SUNY College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security & Cybersecurity — the first in the nation — as well as launching a community-based Citizen First Responder Corps.

Public safety initiatives proposed

Noting that texting-while-driving is the leading cause of death for teen drivers, Cuomo proposed doubling the time licenses are suspended for drivers under age 21 convicted of such offenses. Also, he proposed a permanent license revocation for all drivers convicted of three or more alcohol- or drug-related offenses. With an intent to increase focus on rehabilitation, Cuomo also proposed to raise the age from 16 to 18 at which youth are tried in court as adults, rather than as juveniles.

Housing, corruption, jobs for veterans

Cuomo also called for tougher anti-corruption laws for public officials and lobbyists, with increased consequences. Under his plan, public officials convicted of public corruption felonies or defrauding the government would be banned from holding any elected or civil office, serving as a registered lobbyist, or doing business with the state. Also proposed was a program to grow businesses owned by disabled veterans Ñ and another to aid former convicts get reestablished in society with decent housing and employment. Cuomo also pledged to boost his existing $1 billion affordable housing construction program by $100 million. Ò Every New Yorker deserves a safe, clean, decent place to live,” he said.

LAKE PLACID — Martha Gallagher is known for her multi-faceted performances as a harper, singer, songwriter, storyteller, humorist and actress. Having gained international renown for her unique approach to playing the harp — as well as how she incorporates the instrument into her music and live performances — Gallagher is scheduled to take to the stage with her new one-woman show, Where the Heart Is, a celebration of life in song, story and in-the-moment inspirations. Organizers: “What Gallagher will also bring to the stage with her is a unique partnership she and High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care (HPHPC) have created for 2014. In the role of what could be considered an ambassador, Gallagher will entertain her audiences, but also hopes to help raise awareness about the mission of and services provided by HPHPC through her songs and stories.” Features guest appearances by multi-instrumentalist Sue Grimm Hanley, percussionist Brian Melick and guitarist Dennis Gallagher.

High Peaks Resort to hold collector’s event on Friday, Jan. 17 By Pete DeMola LAKE PLACID Ñ What were you doing 34 years ago this past February? How about 82 years ago? If you were at the 1980 Winter Olympics, or even the first Winter Olympics that was held in the United States in 1932, then the High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid wants you to swing by with your souvenir collection and youthful sense of wonder. As part of the run-up to the 2014 Sochi Games, Lake Placid is kicking the Olympic-related events into high gear and the High Peaks Resort is doing their part with the Winter Games Memories & Memorabilia Showcase on Friday, Jan. 17, a festival-style event designed to appeal to both memorabilia fans and the casual public alike. On display at the showcase will be a spread of memorabilia from both Olympic events, said organizer Lori Fitzgerald. “The idea is to bring back memories,” she said. The Olympic Museum in Lake Placid will showcase content from their 1980 collection, the North Elba Historical Society will cover 1932 and ORDA is slated to haul over an original bobsled from 1932. And there is more memorabilia waiting to be discovered. Ò There are a lot of things that are out there that the museum

doesnÕ t have,Ó said Fitzgerald, Ò and this is what weÕ re looking for.” All the promotional materials that people have become accustomed to discarding is now highly sought after, said Fitzgerald, including pins, pennants and other artifacts, like credentials and ticket stubs that awarded entry to the venues. Ò WeÕ re certainly not seeing these on any of the inventories,Ó she said. “And uniforms would also be cool to have, so bring them if you’ve got them.” What the Olympic Museum does have, said Fitzgerald, is a video that Coca-Cola shot at the 1980 Games to commemorate the event for their staff. Museum officials found it stuffed into a closet. The 25-minute video acts as a neat time capsule that captured a cross-section of the GamesÕ most notable events, said Fitzgerald, including footage from the torch run, Miracle on Ice, the first use of the newly constructed Mt. Van Hoevenberg Olympic Bobsled Run and candid footage of the massive crowds that packed the streets. Ò ItÕ s an interesting fashion statement,Ó said Fitzgerald, Ò the kind of thing that if you were there, youÕ d be scanning to see if you anyone you know was there.” Appraisers will be on hand at the High Peaks Resort to examine collections in an antique roadshow-type setting, said Fitzgerald, and the afternoonÕ s events will be documented by Mountain Lake PBS for a televised program to be aired shortly after the event.
