Hockey tourney to raise funds for kids charity

This Week PLATTSBURGH

By Shawn Ryan shawn@denpubs.com ROUSES POINT Ñ Law enforcement officers from two states and two different countries are descending on the village of Rouses Point, but instead of night sticks, theyÕ ll be swinging hockey sticks. The second annual Ò Rouses Point Civic Center Border BashÓ hockey tournament is being held March 1, with all proceeds going to the local charity MVP Kids. MVP Kids is a childrenÕ s sports league for children age five to 12 with autism spectrum disorders. Ò It gives them the opportunity to enjoy the same benefits of sports that other kids enjoy,Ó said U.S. Border Patrol Agent Norman Lague, who is organizing Border Bash. CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

PLATTSBURGH Ñ Nerds of the world unite, and bring your geek friends with you, the Rota Gallery is hosting the fourth annual Rotacon. Rotacon, which is being held Feb. 15, is a self described celebration of nerd culture. The two weeks on either side of Rotacon will also see a Ò Nerd Art ShowÓ adorning the walls of Rota. While celebrating nerd culture, Rotacon is effectively a swapmeet for anything nerd. Ò For Rotacon there will be people who rent table space so they can trade their wares...if you have a lot of collectables, be it DVDs, books, comic books, movies, toys, video games...video games are usually a hot tradable item,Ó said Nicholas Dubay, organizer of Rotacon. But you donÕ t need to rent a table to come in and trade your items. Dubay stresses that this isnÕ t a shop, where you have to come in and spend your money, but rather a trade show. Ò The idea is you come in with something youÕ ve collected, to trade.Ó CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

North Country girl in long struggle for her life from Ecoli By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com ALTONA Ñ Sierra Reynolds just wants to be like every other kid in her grade...she wants to be healthy. Sierra is 12, and for 10 long years of her short life, being healthy has just been a dream. When Sierra was just two she contracted Ecoli 157. Her parents donÕ t know where she was exposed to the most virulent form of the deadly bacteria, but she nearly died on the way to the hospital. In fact, Sierra coded in the ambulance on the way to Fletcher Allen Health Center in Burlington. During emergency exploratory surgery that night, three quarters of her intestines were removed. She fought for her life for four months before finally pulling through enough to leave the hospital, but life on the other side has been almost as difficult. The Ecoli that nearly killed Sierra left her with Cerebral Palsy and Hemolytic Uremic

Syndrome. She has undergone numerous reconstructive surgeries on her feet just so she can walk. She has had her left ovary removed, and has had several more intestinal surgeries. On a good week, she travels to Fletcher Allen at least once for doctorsÕ appointments, but typically she travels to see doctors two or three times a week or more. Through it all, she just tries to be a normal kid. Ò Sierra lives her life every day knowing sheÕ s very sick, but instead of focusing on that, her drive in life is to be like her friends and know that thereÕ s a future for her to conquer,Ó said her mother, Kathy Reynolds. Kathy is forced to take time off from her work, and Sierra from school, for the usually day long trips to Burlington. She is fortunate that her employer lets her make up the lost time, but the strain is apparent, even through her smile. What causes Kathy the most angst currently

are SierraÕ s kidneys. They are shutting down. She is down to 10 - 15 percent of their capacity. Sierra is on the organ donor list, but her parents are hoping that a live donor will come forward. Both of SierraÕ s parents have been tested and they are not able to donate. Statistics show that transplants from live donors have a much longer lifespan than from a deceased donor, according to Kathy. Being only 12, Sierra’s parents feel that her best hope for the long, normal life she craves, is to find a live donor willing to donate a kidney. Ò WeÕ re the type of people that we donÕ t ask anything of anybody,Ó said Kathy. Ò We feel very uncomfortable and awkward. Ò Our goal is also to raise awareness for the need of organs for many sick adults and children.Ó SierraÕ s doctors are putting off dialysis as long as possible, hoping that she will find a donor first. Dialysis would take a greater toll on her young body, and could cause her to be

too sick to except a kidney transplant if one is found. Dialysis would also mean more doctorÕ s appointments each week. Sierra is shy around strangers, including reporters, but around her friends itÕ s a different story. SheÕ s outgoing, strong-willed and independent. SheÕ s now of an age where she understands how much different her life has been than her friendsÕ lives. ItÕ s hard for her to know that sheÕ s sick, but it doesnÕ t keep her down. SheÕ s planning that in the future, when sheÕ s well, she will go into the medical field. She also hopes to adopt children some day. Ò With her illness, she doesnÕ t like a pity party. If something knocks her down sheÕ ll feel the hurt, but instead of staying low, she accepts it and comes back fighting harder than before,” Kathy said. Anyone interested in learning more about being tested as a possible donor can call Kathy at 236-5960.

Center gives kids much needed place to just be kids By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ Nestled amongst the hulking apartment buildings that make up the core of the Plattsburgh Housing Authority, the diminutive Ted K. Center offers a safe retreat for children from the housing authority to play, do crafts, get help with homework, garden, play video games, and just all around be kids. An estimated 300 children under the age of 15 reside within the housing authority. With early childhood programs for children from 3 to 5 years old, and an after school program for children from 5 to 14, the center serves a core group of about 150 kids, but is open to all. Ò ItÕ s a safe place for kids to come after school,Ó said Education Coordinator Tom Neale. Ò We want to provide kids with meaningful activities. The kids here receive positive interactions with other kids and adults.Ó While the majority of the activities take place inside the one story cinder-block building that comprises the center, activities can take children much further afield. Children have been taken on hiking, biking and fishing trips in the past, and participate in sports and other community activities around the city. There are also plans in the works to utilize the Camp Tapawingo Girl Scout Camp in Point Au Roche for a two-week-long day camp. A favorite project in the summer is the centerÕ s vegetable garden, which dominates the front of the building, when its not blanketed in a layer of snow and ice. As part of the Martin Luther King Day of Service, and in conjunction with the United Way, children at the Ted K. Center put together 53 backpacks consisting of hair and body wash, journals, coloring books and many other personal care items. The backpacks were distributed to the foster care unit of the Department of Social Services. While the lionÕ s share of their funding comes from the Housing Authority, they have received funding or other support from the United Way of the Adirondack Region, the Clinton County Youth Bureau, the Kiwanis Club, and the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, among other agencies. Ò I think itÕ s great that we can do that in this community, share resources,Ó said Neale. Ò And weÕ re happy that the board of the Housing Authority has been so supportive of us over the years.Ó The Ted K. Center is planning to unveil a new media campaign in March through SUNY Plattsburgh, to get the word out about their many educational and community activities. Ò We need to be part of the community,Ó Neale said.

Pendragon brings Oedipus to SUNY Plattsburgh this Friday, Feb. 7 PLATTSBURGH Ñ Pendragon Theatre of Saranac Lake will present Sophocles’ “Oedipus” 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, in the Hartman Theatre, Myers Fine Arts Building, SUNY Plattsburgh. Tickets are available at the Hartman Theatre Box Office one hour prior to the show. Prices are $10 for general admission; $8 for seniors, students and SUNY Plattsburgh faculty and staff; and $2 for SUNY Plattsburgh students. The cast includes Josh Luteran (last seen at Pendragon as Stanley in “A Streetcar Named Desire”) as Oedipus; Leslie Dame as Jocasta; Jordan Hornstein as Tiresias; Chris Leifheit as the messenger; and Jason Amrhein as Creon. Pendragon’s Executive Artistic Director Karen Lordi-Kirkham is the productionÕ s director.

“Oedipus” is considered to be the first detective story. In it, Oedipus is made king by solving the riddle of the Sphinx: Ò What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three in the evening?Ó His skills then continue to be challenged as he attempts to unravel the mystery of who murdered the former king. The consequences of his search can send shivers down the spine. Steven Berkoff, the translator of this version of Sophocles’ 429 B.C. play, said, Ò IÕ ve always been fascinated by this play, since it has one of the most remarkable plots in the world of drama Ñ also the most shocking. Much has changed, but not our unrelenting quest to answer the question, Ô Who am I?Õ Ó

Style & Substance: on “ranting” parents Dear style & substance, I was recently accused by one of my adult children of going on a Ò rantÓ when I was frustrated about some circumstances at work. I truly don’t think that it qualified as such, but has made me re-think how my adult kids perceive me. Thanks! We see two questions in your one questionÉ what is a rant and how might I tone down what I am saying? and are my adult kids my friends or do I need to sensor what I present to them? Adult children can be quite complicated and interpreting the mixed messages they send can be exhausting. A Ò rantÓ to our generation may not what it is to theirs, so donÕ t get upset by the terminology or try to correct the term for them, use it more as an indicator of how they are receiving your words! It is our tendency to expect that because we are happy when they are experiencing an exciting and successful life, or interested and engaged in problem solving when they are upset about somethingÉ that they will feel the same about us. Even though they are adults, they put their parents in a safe-never changing-healthy-even keel-home base-box which makes them able to go out and live their lives with a more secure and content approach. Kind of like a touch-stone. Children, no matter the age, have expectations for parental behavior. Although we have identifiable emotions; to them, we will always be the parent. If you have always been the rock of your family, the voice of reason, your adult children will have the expectation that you will remain so. A chink in the armor, such as frustration or dissatisfaction, can be a very big shock to your children. Transitioning into adult relationships with them is best done in a steady and incremen-

possibly one day could include the more personal issues you are contending with. Most importantly, these are adult familial relationships, not friendships. Over-sharing and TMI have become so commonplace today that discrete communication is a lost art. Friendships with your adult children should be censored! They do not see us as Ò girlfriendsÓ or peers even though you may share laughs at that level. As much as adult children want to be treated as adults, there is that subtle line into confidants, buddies, pals, or BFFs that you must find and respect for your own well-being! While we promote honesty in all relationships, remember that your children will always need you as a role model and an advisor, be mindful of what you share and in what manner.

Letters to the Editor

Medical marijuana can Fundraiser successful help patients enduring neurological disorders To the Editor:

To the Editor: I appreciate the editorial published in Denton Publications urging the public to examine the facts associated with proposals to legalize marijuana. It was interesting to read that the first efforts to establish laws against growing hemp — which up until 1883 was the largest crop grown worldwide for its various uses in industry Ñ were pushed by the southern U.S. cotton lobby which wanted to curb competition. Who would have thought Ñ cotton. This editorial exhibited good research and insight as to who was and is behind such prohibition. Now, letÕ s talk about legalizing medical uses of marijuana. The next step in the fight against legalization could very well involve the drug manufacturers as you stated in the editorial. Medical use of marijuana definitely involves people’s health and our compassion as a country. Marijuana can provide relief from many chronic syndromes, including neurological conditions that have movement-disorder components. Such afflictions include Alzheimer’s disease, ParkinsonÕ s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and seizure disorders, as well as symptoms endured by patients previously suffering strokes. This extensive list possibly could include more syndromes, which we won’t know until bonafide research is allowed. Ingesting marijuana can also have a positive effect on people afflicted with autism, as well as those undergoing chemotherapy. So, one would wonder why drug manufacturers would be against it Ñ but the fact is, they canÕ t patent marijuana, because itÕ s not a manufactured chemical, itÕ s a naturally grown plant Ñ so not only can they not profit from manufacturing it, the medical marijuana would compete with drugs they already have on the market for these disorders, but the marijuana wouldnÕ t have the drugsÕ side effects. Back to those who are suffering with these disorders. IÕ m sure the last thing they would want to do is use medical marijuana to get “high.” Also, the beneficial elements of the plant are primarily the other natural compounds in the plant, not the psychoactive THC component. But the basic question remains, who are we to deprive them of relief and a sense of well-being? Donna Flanagan, DC Warrensburg, NY

On Saturday, Jan. 18, a Spaghetti Dinner and Live Auction Fundraiser was hosted to assist friends, Amy & Howard Drake, who endured a house fire on Jan. 3 in Au Sable Forks. As there are too many kind-hearted community members, businesses & organizations throughout the North Country to thank individually, I would like to you know that you have my deepest level of gratitude for offering your support whether it be via a donation toward food, donating or collecting for the live auction, preparing the advertisement posters, monetary contributions, volunteering your time or attending the benefit. There were several key players who assisted me in coordinating this event to its success and I wish to thank the following people: Cindi Murphy (Meal Coordinator), Jessica Douglass (Live Auction Coordinator), Ed McCallister (Auctioneer), Jessie Furnia (Bake Sale Coordinator), Kelly C. Murphy (Fundraising Consultant) & Paula McGreevey (Monetary Donations Collector). Special thanks also extended to the American Legion Post 504 for being the host venue, Mike Mussen, Sr. (Music Inc. DJ Service), and local music talent, Tally Duell. Last but not least, I greatly appreciate the Valley News, Press Republican, Jay Community News and Lake Placid News Columnist Deanna Santor for getting the advertising out to the general public within a two-week period of time.

CVPH drive a success To the Editor: The Foundation of CVPH Medical Center builds a healthier North Country by supporting health and wellness initiatives within the Hospital as well as outside the walls of the Medical Center. It is the support of hospital staff, medical staff and the community who make these programs all possible. The generosity of the North Country never ceases to amaze me. Our 2013 Annual Campaign has set a new record, raising $255,000 for Foundation programs. Total giving, including memorial donations, event support, special and planned gifts reached over $800,000. Some of the ways these dollars impact our region are: Fund programs that improve the health of our community such as the Snowball events, a preschool exercise program in partnership with Imaginarium and high risk student counseling with Samaritan Family Counseling; •Provide patient care program and equipment support for the Medical Center; •Assist 119 families with travel expenses for specialized care out of the area;

•Educate healthcare professionals to enhance patient care; •Reach nearly 1,000 people who attended health lectures on varying topics; •Award health care scholarships to 11 high school seniors in Clinton County This year we had over 50 campaign volunteers who actively solicited their friends and neighbors in support of the Foundation. Their commitment and each donorÕ s gift have been critical to the success of our campaign and our programs. It is because of this generous support that we can sponsor so many vital health and wellness programs. Thank you to everyone who supported the Foundation of CVPH in 2013. You are helping people, funding programs, enhancing care and touching lives. Gerard Ò JerryÓ Kelly Annual Campaign Chair

Bad weed To the Editor: I offer anecdotal evidence regarding the intoxication by marijuana and therefore suggest that people wait for properly prepared weed before imbibing. Then see if your performance on a video game is better or worse. If you play an instrument or draw, make a video of what you do under maryjane. Remember intoxication is cumulative and remains two weeks. Firstly, as a Deportation Officer at Philadelphia INS, I had to handle a Chilean young man whose buddies gave him hemp sprinkled with angel dust (PCP). His buddies dumped him on the street when he attacked his date. Following our Operations Instructions, we took him to Public Health, another federal agency. The USPHS doctors had a translator with an anti-INS bias. They wanted to talk to him alone until he tried to jump out the window of their 12th floor office. I learned that treatment of such symptoms was treated by Haldol, not thorazine. Thorazine in a body contaminated by PCP may result in catastrophic lowering of blood pressure. Secondly, I supervised the detention and deportation of a male Jamaican national. When the investigator finally gave me the Order to Show Cause in his case it was latish Friday night and he still had to be transported to the Salem County Jail in New Jersey. So I made an extra copy and put it in the file. After two weeks, we brought him up to see the Immigration Judge (an ALJ). The first thing he said was, “Why am I being kept in jail. No longer mellow, he appeared quite sober and irate. His clear eyes flashed! I learned that Salem County Jail did not offer drug canteen privileges. I think we got him on Air Jamaica that night or the next day. So marijuana can be contaminated. It can affect judgment. It tends to involve people with others who make poor choices, including improper nutrition and possibly hypothermia. Gail Durand Elizabethtown

Benefit helps local fire victims in Ausable Forks

By Teah Dowling

denpubs@denpubs.com AUSABLE FORKS — After a fire took Amy and Howard Drake’s house the evening of Jan. 3, the community put their heads together to make a plan to help. Community members put together a benefit spaghetti dinner/auction Jan. 18 at the American Legion Post 504 in Au Sable Forks with high hopes that it could help the Drake family and give them a new start. “The benefit was a huge success,” said Sadie Hozley, event coordinator of the benefit. “It was perfect…no glitches at all.” The cost of the benefit was $8 for adults and $5 for children and seniors. Cindi Murphy and volunteers served dinner from 4 to 6 p.m., serving more than 400 dinners. A live auction, organized by Jessica Douglass and Jennifer Pulsifer, followed at 7 p.m. and lasted until 2 a.m. that consisted of donated items from the community, alongside a raffle and 50/50. Throughout the event, music filled the Legion from Mike Mussen Sr., of “Music Inc. D.J. Service” and local musician Miss Tally Duell, who both volunteered their services. Also, a bake sale took place, coordinated by Jessie Furnia, with donated goods ranging from banana breads to Dana HaywoodÕ s popular peanut butter brownies. Before, during and after the benefit, monetary donations were collected by Paula McGreevy to assist the Drake family in their time of need. Ò It was a huge success not only for the monetary donations but also for the wonderful outpouring from all of the community for their love, time and baking skills,Ó Furnia said. All proceedings from the benefit went to the Drake family. Amy Drake said the family made out okay, and she was very

surprised from the turnout. Ò All of the seats were taken, and rows of people were standing in the back,Ó Hozley said. Ò It was unbelievable.Ó Various guests said people parked throughout the small town, making some people walk from blocks away. People traveled from Keeseville, Lake Placid, Peru, Wilmington, Jay and more to support the Drake family. Ò Amy and Howard are such core people in our little town,Ó Furnia said. Ò They are some of the kindest and most dedicated people among our community.Ó Being life-long residents, Howard is a fireman and a town worker. Alongside his wife Amy, they played big parts of both the annual Fast Pitch and Slow Pitch tournaments in July. Being such a large part of the community, local residents felt they needed to give back to them after the fire. The fire took place around 6 p.m. Jan. 3 on Golf Course Road. The fire departments of Au Sable Forks, Keeseville, Jay, Upper Jay, Peru and South Plattsburgh worked in frigid temperatures and ice-slick surfaces to try to douse the fire that witnesses say was showing through the roof of the house. After the benefit, the community continued, and is still continuing, to help the Drake family in their time of need, something that is normal in small communities like Au Sable Forks. Ò For being a small little town nestled in the Adirondacks, I am so proud of our community as we always pull together for one another,Ó Furnia said. Ò We are always here to help someone back up.Ó

Liquor and Wine Cellar opens on South Catherine Street By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ In business, itÕ s all about location. When Michael Bieber saw an empty store-front next door to the StewartÕ s Shop on PlattsburghÕ s South Catherine Street, the wheels started to turn. When he did some research on the location, traffic flow, and the number of people who pass through StewartÕ s, he decided it was a good time and place to open a liquor store, The Liquor and Wine Cellar. Focusing on value-priced wines under $15, and offering a discount on wine case purchases, Bieber hopes to attract a loyal local clientele. He also carries local wines from Stone House Vineyards in Mooers, and Amazing Grace Vineyards in Chazy. The local wines, he says, have been selling very well. Ò Our store is all about convenience. We want to accommodate as many regulars as possible, so customer requests are impor-

tant to help fine-tune our product offering,” said Bieber. “We are also strategically located right next to the StewartÕ s Shop. An estimated 15,000 people drive this way to and from work each day. Now they can get gas, bread, tonic and gin all in one easy stop.Ó An estimated 1,200 people go into the Stewart’s Shop each day, and a Dollar General just opened across the street. He is also now the closest liquor store to the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. Bieber has worked in a liquor store and tended bar during his younger days, so he has some experience in the business. He also owns several rental properties in the city of Plattsburgh. Along with himself, he has hired three part-time staff. The Liquor and Wine Cellar is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m., and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. At right: Michael Bieber at his South Catherine Street liquer store, Liquor and Wine Cellar.

One other Canadian team is being sought. Last yearÕ s tournament was won by the team from Clinton Correctional Facility. Along with the two day tournament, raffles of items donated by local Northern Tier businesses will be taking place, plus other fund-raising activities.

businesses with donating numerous items to be raffled off. Katie Bond, founder and director of MVP Kids, says she was thrilled when she received the phone call from Lague, offering to support her organization. Bond founded MVP Kids five years ago as a way to help children with spectrum disorders to socialize, learn sportsmanship, and just play sports with other children. Ò WeÕ re a non-competitive sporting league,Ó said Bond. Ò Our sports donÕ t look like other sports. We stress sportsmanship, something that is usually hard for kids with spectrum disorders.Ó Children in MVP Kids participate in baseball/T-ball, track and field, soccer, bowling, basketball skills and swimming, with the help of volunteer coaches and support personnel.

Plattsburgh High Choral Ensemble to back Foreigner Group wins online competition By Shawn Ryan

shawn@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The song is 12 years older than any member of the Plattsburgh High School Select Vocal Ensemble, but that isnÕ t stopping them from backing the band Foreigner up when they sing Ò I Want To Know What Love isÓ at the Flynn Center in Burlington on Feb. 16. Ensemble Choral Director Bill Verity was contacted by WIZN radio just before Christmas break, asking if they wanted to be in a four ensemble competition for the singing honor. He asked his students, and they quickly agreed. About half the students, he said, actually knew who Foreigner was. Over the break Verity looked for a vocal arrangement for the song, but finding none, he wrote an arrangement himself. Ò When we came back from our Christmas break I handed it out to our students and we started singing through it, and editing it a little bit and changing some things, fixing some things that were not exactly like I wanted it to sound,Ó said Verity.

Voting took place throughout January, and Plattsburgh took the early lead against choral groups from Essex Vt., Willsboro and Colchester, Vt. Throughout January the buzz around the Plattsburgh High campus built, as students and faculty alike tracked the vote. Verity held a voting party on the last day of the voting. Ò Students came in my classroom and were voting on their computers, and everyone was sitting around singing Foreigner while they were voting. Definitely they were psyched up,” said Verity. When voting closed, they had retained their lead, with over 4,500 total votes cast. Ò We had a lot of faculty support, through communicating and supporting us verbally that way, but also from casting lots of votes, and lots of students and faculty members posting on their Facebook pages that people should go to vote for the group.Ó Verity is not sure how many of the 40 member ensemble will make it on stage with Foreigner, but hopes that they will all make it. Foreigner will be arriving in Burlington on Feb. 16 for a sound check and to rehearse with the ensemble. The show at the Flynn Center is currently sold out.

LAKE PLACID — NYC-based singer-songwriter Miranda Di Perno appears tonight ahead of her the release of her first record later this month, the crowdfunded The Miranda Di Perno EP Experience. “I’ve busked in parks in exchange for lobster rolls, frozen some fingers playing in the subway, made peanut butter sandwiches with a whole bunch of jams and worked my way into some venues throughout the city,” she said. “I can’t help but sing and write and I’ve finally decided to take the next step.” Di Perno performs tonight, her second appearance at high-end BBQ joint Smoke Signals, with full support band. Doors open at 9pm with the show beginning at 9:30: $5. Image: Di Perno performs in New York. Courtesy of the organizers.
