By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ One of the best kept musical secrets in Plattsburgh may well be the Palmer Street Coffeehouse, held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh at 4 Palmer Street. For a nearly unbroken 26 years, the Coffeehouse has featured local and regional musicians, in a variety of mostly acoustic musical genre. Featuring a small, extremely intimate space, Americana, Bluegrass, Folk and Singer/ Songwriter type music is their forte.

Join the pack: Lumber Jills compete for charity Season opens Saturday, Feb 22

Veteran honored at momot Elementary. PAGE 3 STYLE & SUBSTANCE

By Pete DeMola PLATTSBURGH Ñ For a group of local athletes, civic volunteerism and fundraising is delivered through a robust blend of full body contact paired with a Ò do-it-yourselfÓ ethic. Since their formation in spring 2010, the North Country Lumber Jills, Plattsburgh’s first roller derby team, have raised an estimated $1,500 for local charities, including Reality Check, the youth-led anti-tobacco organization, the Kent-Delord House Museum and a spate of animal shelters. Fifty percent of the proceeds of each bout goes to local charities, said team captain and co-founder Kimberly Cummins. The other half goes toward an audience member who participates in the raffles held at each event. About 35 people are involved with the North Country Lumber Jills, including skaters, referees, volunteers and cheerleaders. Twenty of those are female athletes of all ranks, including several training to ascend to a competitive level. Pictured is North Country Lumber Jill Mayday.

Woman, man found dead following murder-suicide By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ At 5:10 a.m. Feb. 10, the Plattsburgh Police Department received a 911 call from a paper carrier on Maryland Road who found a note on the door at 79 Maryland Road reporting a murder suicide. Responding officers entered the residence and found a deceased female in a bedroom with multiple gunshot wounds. The woman was later identified as 61 year old Ann Cashman. A note found inside the residence directed officers to the City Marina parking lot on Dock Street where officers located a pickup truck matching the description of one that was missing from the 79 Maryland Road residence. Officers set up a perimeter around the marina and called in the Plattsburgh Police Department Special Response Team. Officers used armored rescue vehicles to approach the vehicle and found 63 year old, Wayne Cashman dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound a short distance from the vehicle. The investigation thus-far has revealed that Wayne and Ann Cashman were married and they resided in the 79 Maryland Road residence together. The investigation, including motive, is continuing at this time. Plattsburgh City Police Chief Desmond Racicot stressed that there is no reason to believe the public is at any risk at this time.

Guest bartenders raise money for First Weekends PLATTSBURGH Ñ Irises Cafe & Wine Bar burst with local support Friday night for yet another successful fundraiser to benefit First Weekends in Plattsburgh. Joshua Kretser, Ward 6 common councilor, served beverages as guest bartender for the local organization. As Josh poured for a cause, his positive energy overflowed; mirroring what First Weekends aims to bring to Downtown Plattsburgh at each and every event. The group rose just over $400 to help in funding the 2014 events the organization will bring to the community. These events are scheduled to begin the first weekend in April. On March 7, Mayor Jim Calnon will be the guest bartender for the next First Weekends fundraiser. This will take place at The Pepper from 5 - 8 p.m., with 25 percent of sales and all tips being donated by The Pepper - to First Weekends in Plattsburgh. Ò We are excited and honored to have Jim Calnon bartend for us,Ó Leigh Simonette, Vice President said in a quote. Ò The support from the City of Plattsburgh has been nothing short of amazing.Ó Ò To have Josh, Jim and other officials from the city along with the community really is inspiring, not to also forget all the local businesses which open their doors for us and

allow us to fundraise, it keeps the spirit of First Weekends alive during the off seasons.Ó Like us on Facebook and stay up to date on all events -

World War II veteran honored at Momot Elementary By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ On Friday, Feb. 7, North Country Honor Flight World War II veteran Dave Mitchell was the guest of honor at Momot Elementary School in Plattsburgh. Mitchell brought a framed photo of the Honor FlightÕ s last visit to the school in November of 2013, as well as more than 200 copies of the United States Constitution donated by Mike Farrell of McSweeneyÕ s Restaurant. Mitchell received a long standing ovation, resplendent in his WW II combat medals and Honor Flight ID lanyard and hat. Also present were MitchellÕ s wife Janet and daughter Sue, who is also a teacher and accompanied Mitchell on his May 18, 2013 Honor Flight to Washington DC. Pauline Stone, Executive Secretary of North Country Honor Flight, Director Danny Kaifetz, Flight Leader Don Stone and Logistics Director Frank McGrath also attended the ceremony. Before leaving Mitchell spoke to the students

of the third, fourth and fifth grade, calling them his Ò angels.Ó On the verge of tears, he told them how moved he was last November when he and two other WW II veterans lined up in the hall of the school and were asked to sign autographs for more than 40 minutes. A replay of that event then occurred, as more than 150 students lined up for MitchellÕ s autograph on their copies of the constitution. A very touching moment, lots of hugs and handshakes and a very proud veteran. Honor Flight Director Danny Kaifetz urged all of the students to attend the May 17 send off ceremony at the Old Base Parade Grounds for the first of seven flights coming up this year. The school has also been invited to sing Ò God Bless AmericaÓ at the ceremony. They are also planning on starting an Ò Honor FlightÓ bulletin board with the photos of all the heroes they have met. At the meeting, Kaifetz was honored by being named North Country Outstanding Citizen by the Woodsmen of the World for his work with and dedication to Honor Flight.

Local soccer standout Ashley Carpenter chooses Siena By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ Seton Catholic soccer standout Ashley Carpenter made it official; she’ll be playing her college soccer on the pitch at Siena College. Ashley signed a letter of intent to play Division 1 soccer at Siena this coming fall. In front of a small gathering in the Seton gym consisting of her teammates, her parents Scott and Jody Carpenter and her soccer coach Jason Fenner, and venerable teacher Mary Forbes, Carpenter put pen to paper, agreeing to play at the idyllic college just outside Albany. Ò This is a great opportunity, weÕ re proud of her,Ó said mother Jody. Ò SheÕ s worked very hard for this.Ó Carpenter was courted by numerous Division 1 colleges, but chose Siena after her first visit to the Loudonville campus. The future biology major, who plans to go into a career as a Physical Therapist, said the school was a perfect fit for her, both academically and personally. After her four years at Siena, Carpenter plans to attend Russell Sage College for her Physical Therapy Doctorate degree. Carpenter began playing soccer at the age of six. She has

played locally for the Plattsburgh City Recreational Department, Peru Blue thunder, Team Pella, Soccer United, Plattsburgh Football Club and Nordic Soccer Club. She is currently playing for the Far Post Soccer U18 Premier Club in Essex, Vt. During her time with the Nordic and Plattsburgh Football Clubs, Carpenter traveled the east coast, from Portland Me., to Bradenton, Fl. to play soccer. She joined SetonÕ s varsity team as an eighth grader under Coach Matthew Devins. She ended her high school career playing for Coach Jason Fenner, who had been one of her coaches at a very young age. Carpenter is a mid-fielder, and during her high school career she recorded 54 goals and 33 assists. She was a CVAC All Star for her last four years, and finished as the Division II MVP in 2013. Ò WeÕ re happy for her. SheÕ s put a lot of work into it. Jason was a big part of it,Ó said father Scott Carpenter. Off the field, Carpenter has excelled as well. She is currently ranked number 1 in her senior class academically, and will be receiving a Presidential Scholarship at Siena as well. Ò IÕ m nervous and excited at the same time,Ó said Carpenter at her signing, seemingly uncomfortable at being the center of attention. Her season will start in early August, with practice and scrimmages.

Why the winter Olympics may never return


very four years, the spectacle and competition of the Winter Olympic Games returns to the main stage, this time taking place in Sochi, Russia. What also comes every four years is the call for a look at whether or not Lake Placid, the home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympiads, could again host the world for two weeks in February. The answer is no. At least, not without help. In a way, the reason Lake Placid can no longer host the Olympic Games is because of the Lake Placid Olympic Games. The 1980 games are what made the Olympics the multi-billion dollar revenue-generating machine they are today. The United States won six gold medals, and each drew major attention as five went to speed skater Eric Heiden in one of the most dominating performances ever on ice. Oh, yeah, and then there was the sixth one, which came in the most exciting sports moment ever as the United States menÕ s hockey team won gold, beating the feared and favored Soviet Union, 4-3, in the semifinal round. The Miracle on Ice is the moment that changed the Winter Olympics from a sporting competition to a human drama played out in the sports arena. That created the way the Olympics are broadcast now, with human feature stories of triumph and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. Of course, with more eyes on the games came more revenue, and with more revenue the chance to expand. In 1980, the Olympics included just 36 events over 10 disciplines Ñ alpine and cross country skiing, biathlon, bobsled, figure skating, ice hockey, luge, Nordic combined, ski jumping and long track speed skating. This year, there are 98 events over 15 disciplines. Included now are freestyle skiing, skeleton, short track speed skating, snowboarding and, of course, curling. The number of competitors has also increased. In 1980, 37 countries took part in the Lake Placid Games, compared to 88 countries in 2014. With more countries and more eyeballs comes more media, as outlets from all over the world converge together to cover the games. The media presence alone would need more room then the 1980 athletes did. So why not expand Lake Placid? Why not add a new venue for figure skating (you are going to need at least 10,000 seats for the event, if not more), an additional hockey venue, a new athletes village, more hotel rooms and all of the modern things needed for the new games. You could spread them out over the entire tri-lakes area, into Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake.

Unfortunately, this is not going to work. Not because it couldnÕ t be done. The United States Olympic Committee put a lot of money into the Salt Lake City area to host the 2002 games and would not have to come anywhere near the $51 billion price tag it took to turn a Russian beach town into a winter sports haven. But that will not happen in the Adirondacks. ThatÕ s because, even if the needed development projects cleared the regulatory red tape of the Adirondack Park Agency, they would still face the scrutiny here of so-called Ò environmental watchdogÓ groups. The real reason the winter Olympics could never be held here again is groups like Protect the Adirondacks and others would no doubt delay the plan to death with frivolous lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit. Just look at how these groups have held up the Adirondack Club and Resort proposal in Tupper Lake. The same would happen to this plan. So, with expansion out of the question, the next option might be hosting some components of the games with another, bigger city. The most viable option is an in-state dance partner, and the most likely place would be the capital region. The Albany area still has potential to grow. It already has an international airport that could be expanded. It has hotels, an arena that could be upgraded to host bigger ticket events like figure skating and easy access to the Adirondacks, where skiing, bobsled and some ice events could take place (curling and short track speed skating - long track events would need a new venue). It also does not have to worry about blue line restrictions when it comes to development. The only issue becomes the United States Olympic Committee, which is already looking at other cities, such as Denver, Colorado, or a return to Salt Lake City ahead of an east coast location. Even if the games never come back, we should still be grateful for the rich history the region has already. The North Country has the distinction of being the home of the greatest sporting moment in history. We still get worldclass athletes coming to the region to train and compete in top level events. We also have the chance to build the future of winter sports with events like the Empire State Games, where youth from all over the state come together to make their own Olympic-style memories while learning about the history of the sport. While the Olympic games may never return, our Olympic heritage will never leave. Ñ

Style & Substance: on feeling restless

Dear style & substance, I feel so restless lately, that it is distracting me. I feel discontent with the same old life that I have been living, but really cannot make many changes due to financial, family and child commitments. Is this a normal way to feel in my late 30Õ s? Your feelings are yours and you can give yourself permission to explore, acknowledge (not lash out about) and actually feel them. Your real question might be, Ò What does 38 to 40 look like for me and where am I headed?Ó You are not alone in your feelings of discontent and restlessness. You have shared in your question that you have a full life with many responsibilities, most likely; children, family, a job, a home, and a host of adult commitments. In addition, you may even be feeling some fear and guiltÉ you have everything you always wanted and now, whew, maintaining it all is a lot of work. We look at restlessness and discontentment as great signs and wonderful, positive, descriptive feelings that you are Ò not done yetÓ with your lifeÕ s goals, even though you are not free to wholeheartedly and single-mindedly pursue them right now. You could find a nice analogy to relate to such as equating restlessness with a scratchy label in your shirt, it is fixable, and once fixed, great relief follows! Since you are not in a place to make ultimatums or take on an Ô all or nothingÕ approach, your SMALL changes could be very powerful in exploring and addressing the causes of your restlessness. • Oftentimes a renewed focus on the basics can make the stressors of everyday life more manageable and thinking about your future a little clearer. Take care of yourself, body, mind, and spirit. Exercise, eat well, and get enough sleep. • If you have a family, get support so you can begin to explore the restlessness you are feeling. When you discuss your restlessness or need for something new, be respectful not to hurt feel-

ings or place blame on your biggest supporters as they may be perfectly content and really take offense that you are not feeling the same as they do. • Coordinate time with friends, try new activities; with and without children. One extra activity or something to look forward to a week would be easy to incorporate. • Dream….yes, DREAM about what you might do if given the time, the freedom and the opportunity….you may find that you can’t quite put your finger on anything specific that you would even dare to do. That will help to put things in perspective for now, and to start planning for that upcoming future you are conjuring up. Big dreams take small steps. • Work! Even a career you enjoy can become burdensome when trying to juggle too many commitments. Can you streamline in any way? Doing things a little differently; with work and child schedules, pick ups and drop offs, etc. Making someone

However, Ramsey is a fan of getting into the garbage and resource guarding his Rebecca Burdo •643-2451; garbage when it is in his mouth. The great thing about Ramsey is that if you offer him something else to eat and say GIVE he will gladly trade you! Ramsey also was a little uncomfortable about being around the young children when they were running around all the time. This guy really enjoys lounging around in the office. He also is more apt to trust a female than a male. We have noticed that he is much more reserved with male staff and volunteers. Come in and meet this handsome dog that is only looking for a warm and happy to place to laze around! He is altered, has tested negative for heart worm and is current on all vaccinations. He will do well in a quiet home where he will be able to receive lots of love and attention.

This distinguished gentleman was surrendered by his owners because they no longer had time to be with the dog and he was marking in their home when other dogs were introduced. When they tried to re-home him to a house hold where there were no other dogs he didnÕ t mark.

WAIT…God forbid, is also an option! • Getting into a rut is easy, it happens to the best of us. Take a class, learn a new skill, and get outside moreÉ .stay active and vital. MIX IT UP and say YES. • Take stock of your finances. Are there areas where you can cut back so you can work less or save more? Saving money for a future goal lends meaning to why we do what we do. • When all else fails, KNOW that you are restless and begin to interpret the world differentlyÉ .looking for opportunities to pursue with the open mind for dabbling now and getting something in line for a delicious future pursuit. Enjoy the life you are creating and living, even amidst the chaos. Remember why you made the choices you made Ð if you are having some regrets about past decisions, reflect on where you are now and change your decision making process for your future. Forgive any regrets, as they will zap you of your energy for positive momentum.

New report on smoking alarming To the editor:

5.6 million children alive today will die prematurely from smoking related diseases unless smoking rates drop, says the latest Surgeon GeneralÕ s Report. In NY, thatÕ s 280,000 children who will have their lives cut short because of tobacco. This is just one of the startling statistics highlighted in the latest report entitled Ò Smoking and Health: 50 Years of Progress.Ó 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s Report on Tobacco Use which concluded that tobacco smoke was directly linked to lung cancer in men. Since then 32 subsequent reports have linked smoking to diseases which affect every organ of the body. The latest report highlights new connections between smoking and diabetes, colorectal and liver cancer. Perhaps more alarming is the now documented connection between second hand smoke and a higher risk for stroke. Ò Enough is enough,Ó this was the sentiment expressed by the Surgeon General at the Press Conference announcing the latest report. As public health professionals, and representatives of the North Country Tobacco Cessation Center (NCTCC) and the Adirondack Tobacco Free Network, this is a sentiment we would like to echo. Enough is enough. According to the CDC, In NY State 25,000 people die every year from diseases caused by tobacco use. Diseases caused by smoking cost our healthcare system in NY eight billion dollars a year, much of which is paid for by the taxpayers of New York. It is estimated each household in NY pays $883 a year for smoking-caused government expenditures. We donÕ t believe that New Yorkers want to continue losing loved ones to tobacco, nor do they want to carry the financial burden of the added healthcare costs that stem from tobacco use. Enough is enough. Each day, more than 3,200 youth (younger than 18 years of age) smoke their first cigarette and another 2,100 youth and young adults who are occasional smokers progress to become daily smokers. Tobacco industries enlist retailers (their most important marketing partner) to display their products in highly visible areas where youth will see them every time they shop. The Surgeon General reports that tobacco advertising at the point of sale is directly linked to the initiation of youth tobacco use. The CDC reports that 18.1% of youth in the U.S continue to smoke. Tobacco products need to be made less desirable, affordable and acceptable to help reduce youth tobacco rates.

Enough is enough. A message doctors need to continue to deliver. Smoking, more than any other behavior, leads to chronic disease and death. If doctors could only do ONE thing for the health of their patients who smoke, talking to them about quitting at EVERY visit would be at the top of the list. It has been well documented that repeatedly offering short, basic counseling, plus, medication to ease withdrawal increases the likelihood of a successful quit attempt. And what is NOT enough. New York funds tobacco control programs (like ours) at exceedingly low levels. The Surgeon GeneralÕ s report stresses the continued success and importance of tobacco control programs which help implement proven policies and techniques to prevent and to treat tobacco use. Furthermore, the latest (2014) CDC recommendation is that NY fund the State Bureau of Tobacco Control (BTC) at a MINIMUM of $143 million per year. In 2013 New York State funded the BTC at $40 million. That is a fraction of the CDC recommendation and a barely noticeable dent in the $2 billion in revenue New York receives from tobacco every year. After 50 years of education and policy change, itÕ s time we collectively put our foot down and make the next generation Tobacco Free. This is not solely a personal issue, nor is it solely up

to healthcare professionals, or tobacco control programs, or government. It will take a commitment from EVERYONE to create a generation free of tobacco. A commitment from those who want to quit and the rest of us to help them in every way possible; a commitment to protect each other by keeping smoke out of public spaces; and a commitment to protect our children so that they will not feel the pull of tobacco marketing in their daily lives.

SUNY Plattsburgh’s History Association hopes to give back importance of history on the campus. Ò History is for everybody because everything you do is history,Ó Mastrocovi said. For one their first ideas, the historical association plans to work alongside with the physics club to create a Ò History of the ScientistsÓ presentation for their event hosted on March 27 from 6 to 8 p.m., which might be held in Hudson Hall. The club is also planning on putting on a historical film showing a week before finals week to help lift stress off of students. As for trivia, which is a normal occurrence during the meetings, the club plans to expand this to the campus by hosting a trivia night. TheyÕ re hoping to include prizes ranging from historical DVDÕ s to money, along with a grand prize of a Chromebook. But if trivia might not hit the mark, the idea a historical ball with the theme of roaring 20Õ s might happen eventually. Lastly, the club is looking to a meeting, question and answer session with Elise Stefanik, a Republican running for congress from Wills-

He says they are very deliberate when they pick the acts to pursue for the coffee house. “We find that electric instruments and drums overpower this space. Never say neverÉ but almost never,Ó he says about booking an electric band. The coffee house holds nine concerts a year, on the first Friday of the month from October through June. They also book other shows throughout the year, the same way any other venue would. “We purposely hire people who will fit this room. People

With this session, the club hopes to create a panel and show people on the panel and audience the strong correlation between history and political science. The club has many different ideas and plans they hope to establish during this semester. TheyÕ re biggest hope, however, is to make club more well-known and more versatile. Ò We can work with almost everybody because everybody has a history,Ó Mastrocovi said. Ò We study everything.Ó The meetings that used to be held in Champlain Valley Hall will now be held in Meeting Room 3 of the Angell College Center every Monday from 7 to 8 p.m. Any major is welcomed to join.

With no stage, people sitting in the front row can literally reach out and touch the musicians, or converse with them between sets. Coffeehouse shows are all ageÕ s shows, with no alcohol served on the premises. They do serve coffee and tea, as well as pastries and deserts. Young children are not just allowed but are encouraged at Coffee House concerts. Information on the Coffeehouse and upcoming shows can be found at their Facebook page, Palmer Street Coffeehouse. Ò WeÕ re always trying to let our music lovers have a great experience here,Ó says Lawson. Ò I feel like weÕ ve sort of built a brand here.Ó

PLATTSBURGH Ñ Coming out of their history books and making a name for themselves is SUNY PlattsburghÕ s History Association. With the help of the new president, Sean Mastrocovi, the club plans on creating events to get the students and themselves more involved on campus and in the community. Ò We have to be more outgoing,Ó Mastrocovi said. Ò So, we have a full semester all ready.Ó At first, the club, as the members said, used to be a closed and tight-knit community consisting of mostly history majors. This semester, they want to make a change and prepare for the semesters to come. With the help of Vice President Stefan Ramirez, Treasurer Garrett Smith, Secretary Senai Mogos and Public Relations Coordinator Windlove Rojo, the club plans to make the semester as eventful as possible to create a step-

ping stone for the Bicentennial of the Battle of Plattsburgh next semester. For this semester, the club hopes to give back to the community by raising money for the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum by dorm storming, the process of going door to door collecting change. Mastrocovi said 80 percent of the funds will be given to the community. Ò Any money they can get will help keep them open,Ó he said. Ò I feel itÕ s our duty as college students in the area to help our local community as they have helped us.Ó With the other 20 percent, the club intends to take a trip to Mount Titus in Malone, a trip that will be open to the entire campus. The club plans to go March 3, with two to three vans for transportation, depending on the number of attendees. Besides the trip and the fundraiser, the club aims to bring a new and fun outlook of history by presentations, trivia and more, to show the

Bowl-A-Thon raises funds to combat cancer By Paige Passman PLATTSBURGH Ñ Five College students from the College Suites at Plattsburgh State joined forces with the North Country Cancer Fund this past weekend to give back to the community. A Bowl-A-Thon was held at North Bowl Lanes in Plattsburgh to raise money for the North Country Cancer Fund. The rise of cancer in the North Country is a concern to the Cancer Fund. This non-profit organization has given out $100,000 in the past 5 years to over 140 families in Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties. This helps pay for non-medical expenses for those suffering from cancer. Cancer is a disease that has over 14 million new diagnoses each year nationally. It affects so many of our friends

Lumber Jills From page 1

THE RULES The contact sport, played on classic four-wheeled skates known as Ò quads,Ó sees its roots in the late-1880s and has evolved considerably since its origins as an endurance race that ended up killing two participants in the first large-scale event, a six-day marathon held at Madison Square Garden in 1885. Rising to national prominence in the 1940s, the sport crested in the 1970s with the inclusion of theatrical elements that threatened to overshadow the sporting aspect Ñ think WWF meets the rollers from the 1985 dark fantasy film Return to Oz Ñ before fading and periodically emerging for mini-revivals until the current female-centered resurgence in the early-2000s cemented the sport more or less permanently onto the landscape as a serious athletic event. The Lumber Jills perform a form known as “slap track” (as opposed to “back track”) in which five members from each team Ñ three blockers, one pivot and a point scorer known as a Ò jammerÓ Ñ skate around a circuit track and try to score points by breaking through the other teamÕ s defensive wall guarded by the blockers. Each person passed is a point. Game play typically consists of two half-hour periods broken up into fifteen two-minutes blocks known as Ò jams.Ó About 1,300 amateur leagues exist worldwide, half of them outside of the United States, and the sport is currently under consideration for inclusion in the 2020 Summer Olympics. The leading governing association, the WomenÕ s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), counts 234 leagues and 89 apprentice leagues, including the North Country Lumber Jills, who were extended an invitation to join last month alongside 22 other leagues.

and family. The Bowl-A-Thon was jammed with people who were willing to give back to their community. Both those who are affected with cancer as well as those who arenÕ t directly affected turned out for the event. John Grodan was one participant who thought it was important to participate because his father had died of cancer and he wanted to give back. Another person who was there for the cause was Joanne. She usually is at the bowling alley for practice and when she saw the advertisement, she decided to join the benefit. Organizers were very pleased to see how many people showed up to the Bowl-A-Thon. “(It’s) great to help the local community. The people who are affected with cancer need help with bills like heating, and travel

to doctorsÕ appointments,Ó said one of the organizers. He also said it helps people who are affected with the disease to have money for their house bills, so they donÕ t have to become homeless. He would like more students to help out the cause, so the word could get out to more people. Not only do they hold bowling tournaments, but they also hold golf tournaments, art sales and a turtle walk, which is going to be in May for the North Country Cancer Fund. Ò Everybody knows someone affected by cancer.Ó The Bowl-A-Thon is one out of many events the community set up for the North County Cancer Fund. Every dollar counts in helping out a family in need.

Ò This is a huge step forward for us,Ó said Cummins. Ò ItÕ s something weÕ ve been working towards for the past four years.Ó

eryoneÕ s favorite rugratÓ ). Ò ItÕ s really fun to let fans know about us on that level,Ó said Brawli née Cummins. “It’s often difficult to see that your pediatrician is hitting someone hard... to see past the day job and their other life.Ó The team opens their season at the Plattsburgh City Recreation Center on Saturday, Feb. 22 with a match against the Green Mountain Derby Dames Black Ice Brawlers of Burlington, Vermont (try saying that 10 times fast) as part of Snowball 2014, the monthlong event series designed to offer a spate of low-cost and family-friendly activities to Clinton County residents throughout the month of February. Ò WeÕ re back in full force with strong goals and fresh attitudes,Ó said co-captain Kate Bourgeois. Ò While we have a challenging season ahead of us, weÕ re pushing ourselves as a team to reach our full potential and excited for the competition.Ó Ò WeÕ re scrappy just like Plattsburgh,Ó added Cummins. Ò As a small league, weÕ ve done really well so far with a record of 10-2 last year. Our players are super-dedicated Ñ we give it 110 percent and it shows.Ó Cummins said the team is extremely grateful for the support given from the community, from fans to local agencies and business owners. Ò The city gym has been kind enough to paint down the track for us, which is a huge benefit,” said Cummins, “and we have an amazing fanbase Ñ we couldnÕ t be more thankful for everything who makes our team possible. WeÕ re overwhelmed and it is fantastic.Ó

GOING PRO WFTDA membership means the North Country Lumber Jills are now dialed into a national network that advances the level of athleticism. Ò It allows us to travel and expand our competition,Ó Cummins said, Ò and helps to assess who we can play on the international level. We are training really hard to rise to the challenge of playing more difficult teams.” Following the underlying feminist streak and raw punk ethos of the sport, part of roller derby culture includes conceptualizing Ò derby namesÓ and slogans that rely on clever wordplay and cheeky vernacular. Take the Lumber Jills, for example: CumminsÕ derby name is Salvadora Brawli (“Because I’m a lady,” she said in mock coyness) and her slogan is Ò brawls to the walls.Ó Her colleagues include Blondie Beatdown (“Growing up, she learned all she needs to know about hitting from her childhood idol, Tonya HardingÓ ), Mayday VaJ*J (“She’s gynomite!”) and Chucky Finish-Her (“Ev-

Meet the Lumber Jills at the Champlain Center Mall on Saturday, Feb. 15 from noon until five. Team members will be on hand to recruit new talent, discuss the sport, give away prizes and more. Season kicks off Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Plattsburgh City Recreation Center: 5pm, $12/$10 (door/advance).
