By Elizabeth Izzo STA FF W RITER

PLATTSBURGH | The Clinton County Legislature is applying for a $200,000 grant to aid the Plattsburgh Farmers’ Market as they expand their offerings. The legislature unanimously agreed to apply for the federal Department of Agriculture grant on behalf of the market and the Lake City Local Development Corporation last Wednesday. The grant would allocate money toward marketing and promotion; development of a consolidated cross-season market model; marketing training for producers and development of a partner network to promote local food hubs. “This three-year grant will help build a gold-standard farmer’s market in Clinton County,” said Legislator Christopher Rosenquest (Area 9). » Farmers market Cont. on pg. 5

Stefanik supports proposal to strengthen work requirements for food stamps GOP plan draws criticism from left By Pete DeMola EDITOR

WASHINGTON, D.C. | The House will vote on a bill this week that proposes implementing stricter work requirements on food stamp recipients. The proposed Farm Bill legislation tightens the requirements for applicants to enroll in job training programs in

order to access food stamps. Formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP constitutes about 80 percent of the bill’s spending. The program currently contains some work requirements for able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 without young children. The proposed GOP-penned legislation would raise the age to 59 and would require recipients to work at least 20 hours per week. Recipients would alternately be required to enroll in vocational training

for the same amount of time, which would increase to 25 hours in 2026. The current $900 billion bill is scheduled to expire at the end of September. Republicans believe the work requirements will alleviate poverty and incentivize some 5 to 7 million beneficiaries to enter the workforce. But the measure, widely expected to be one of the last big policy fights before this year’s midterm elections, has Republicans and Democrats on track to clash. » Stefanik Cont. on pg. 4

The Town of Plattsburgh teamed up with the Adirondack North Country Association and Clinton Community College last week for a day-long seminar on solar power for local municipal leaders at the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing. Representatives from nine counties and two states were in attendance to learn more about the benefits of solar power, utility-scale solar and rural land use.

Cumberland Bay Chorus still strong after half century Longstanding barbershop troupe plans May appearances

PLATTSBURGH | Clustered in a closeknit circle at the heart of a Plattsburgh church, a group of men harmonized with seamless precision. Their voices, an ear-catching concoction, echoed throughout the white-walled room populated only by a handful of chairs and the faint, waft smell of freshly-brewed coffee. The Cumberland Bay Chorus is a maleonly barbershop troupe that attracts singers from all around the North Country.

Members of the Cumberland Bay Chorus, pictured here, rehearsed at the North Country Alliance Church in Plattsburgh last Tuesday. Photo by Elizabeth Izzo With 22 members that range in age from 14 to 92, the group boasts a cross-section of the community that they’ve served since 1959. “We like to sing in the community,” said president Chris Kelly. And they do it often. Beyond sustaining a genre of music with roots in the classic American culture of yore, their concerts have come to embody more than just a performance on a stage. In an era where many local non-profits, civic and charity organizations are struggling to recruit young members, the group’s shows double as a sort of community service put on by dedicated local-minded people, neighbors singing for neighbors often free of charge. “We want to give back to the community,” Kelly said. “This community has been so good for us, we do it for them.” The chorus meets once a week, Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m., and rehearse for appearances at a variety of venues: schools,

-..~ :~ _ .. _ .. _ .. _ .. _ .. _ .. _ .. I ... : .

nursing homes, churches and competitions. They’re always looking for new members. “This group is a family,” said Kelly. Behind him, members filed through the doors and greeted one another, their voices swiftly rising in quick bursts of harmony as he continued his thought. “I don’t think anyone would hesitate to help others.” Their next show is a big one. On May 4-5, the clan will travel to Lake George for a combination conference-competition, where they’ll perform alongside a group from Montreal, Canada. It won’t be long before they’re off to Lake Placid, where the chorus will perform at Elderwood on May 19. “It’s really a hobby for us,” Kelly said. Interested in tagging along? Stop by the North Country Alliance Church on Tuesday at 7 p.m., or contact Mike Deeb (518-561-0545), for more information. ■

fewer people would receive benefits in 2028, two-thirds of whom would be parents with older children.

The proposal is House Speaker Paul Ryan’s “attempt to do welfare reform,” Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) told The Wall Street Journal. “We’re the guinea pigs, that’s the problem.”

Critics of the reforms counter food stamp recipients are already working, and a tightened set of requirements further stigmatizes the poor. Stefanik is up for re-election this year and her stance has drawn sharp criticism from Katie Wilson, a small business owner from Keene who has branded herself as a working

of the North Country economy, where residents often have to patch together a string of seasonal jobs over vast distances. Folks tend to turn to SNAP when laid off in the slow season, she said, and many people are often one paycheck away from turning to temporary assistance. “Laziness or unemployment doesn’t have anything to do with needing $5,000 worth of dental work, or your car suddenly breaking down and needing new tires in the winter,” Wilson said. “If we want to address poverty and a path out, we need to make sure people’s basic needs are met.” She also said the reforms were punitive because if people fail to meet the work requirements, they’ll be shut out of the program for a year, or three years for a second offense.

About 40,000 recipients in New York’s 21st Congressional District would be affected by the change. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) supports the strengthened requirements. While she acknowledged the safety net is an important part of the national landscape, the lawmaker said the reforms “are a way to ensure a pathway out of poverty.” There will be no net cuts to overall food stamp funding, said STRANGE ATTACK the lawmaker, who believes reLenny Alcivar, a Stefanik camcipients will benefit from trainpaign spokesman, referred to ing opportunities in states with Wilson’s comments as a “strange strong pre-existing programs personal attack.” like New York. “Each of these Democratic can“That’s something we’re good didates are desperately trying to at in the North Country,” said break out of their disastrous primary Stefanik, citing programs at the while Congresswoman Stefanik Institute for Advanced Manucontinues to work to support the facturing at Clinton Commu- Rep.

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

Watchdog or guard dog? The national media at one time in this nation’s history took great pride in being a watchdog for its By Dan Alexander citizens. • PUBLISHER • Their mission was to protect and inform. Personal preferences were instinctively and professionally put aside, and their focus was watchdogging governmental affairs on behalf of the American people. Nowadays, they seem to respond more like a guard dog who instead of guarding the property, responds more favorably to the diversionary story thrown to them by their party of choice. A good watchdog needs to understand and value what they are on watch to protect, and nothing can supersede that task. I saw a video recently of a young boy who had fallen off his bike and was knocked unconscious. Lying next to him was his pet dog. The dog was not a large nor imposing animal — just your average mongrel pet. The dog would not allow any passersby nor medical support staff get near the child. While he never bit anyone, he was overly protective, snapping and barking until the child regained consciousness. Despite the best intentions of those wishing to assist, the dog was laser-like in his single purpose, not wishing further harm to the child by keeping everyone at bay until the child let the dog know these people were there to help not hurt. Instinctively, the dog understood his role. His love for the child overshadowed everything else. Nothing mattered more to the dog, not even its own life, than the task of watching over the injured child. Sadly, both sides of our political system have manipulated the mainstream media, and it appears far too many in the media have lost focus on just who these are supposed to be protecting. Like the guard dog that chooses the juicy red T-bone diversion, they see their mission is to only feast on the juicy scandals or successes of one party over the other while placing their selected preferences over those of the nation. That process is a disservice to the nation and their profession as a whole. Perhaps in the future, this period will be looked upon and studied in schools of journalism as training for how not to conduct oneself nor the craft of good reporting. Until then, each of us must stand watch over what we choose to accept as the truth versus opinion. ■

Opinion

suncommunitynews.com/opinions

From the Editorial Board

Diversity initiative much-needed Race is always been a third rail in American politics. So let’s talk about it. Amid the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks last month, the chain is engaged in deep soul-searching and will close over 8,000 stores for the day on May 29 to offer “racial-bias training” to employees. The flap is just the latest incident in the ongoing tension roiling the country stemming from ham-handed (and sometimes fatal) attempts to discriminate against people going about their everyday business. Despite being isolated, the North Country isn’t immune to national trends. Earlier this winter, a SUNY Plattsburgh student posted a racist message on social media, leading to protests and policy changes at the college. The fallout also led to pained community discussions in Keene, the hometown of the student who posted the message. As the aftermath rippled across the region, people of color shared their own stories of discrimination and discomfort in the North Country, which is overwhelmingly white — up to 90 percent in some communities. And at 43, the median age of Adirondack Park residents is eight years older than in the rest of the state, according to the 2014 Adirondack Park Regional Assessment. The same report reveals the Adirondacks is on track to become the oldest region in

the entire country if current trends continue. As the rest of the country becomes increasingly diverse, we have to question if this overall lack of diversity is putting us at a competitive disadvantage. There are arguments both for and against the role of cultural diversity in promoting economic development. By some metrics, diversity plays a key role in growth because areas friendly to different races, religions, cultures and lifestyles provide a fertile and welcome area to relocate. Alternatively, one could argue areas that are already diverse tend to attract similar populations because they’re already rich cultural environments. A new group called Adirondack Diversity Solutions aims to probe some of these questions. The organization, which grew out of the similarly named Adirondack Diversity Initiative, is calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to require all state employees and contractors to complete racial bias and inclusion training. They’ve also extended the invite to frontline tourism service professionals. While we usually balk at pledges, we think this is a great idea and support these efforts. Adirondack Diversity Solutions is correct when they acknowledge we tend to harbor unconscious biases whether we realize it or not. But even if unintended, they could mean everything to a person of color or another nationality — a stray glance, an action, a look.

Essex deserves praise for storm relief efforts

To the Editor: I’d like to commend and thank all the good Samaritans in Essex who looked out for and assisted neighbors during the power outage weekend. Special thanks go to Craig Jackson, fire chief, and his father Ron Jackson, town supervisor, for personally checking on many in the community to see if they needed assistance. Their concern and outreach are greatly appreciated. Many thanks to them and all who helped others this past weekend. Maureen Ecclesine, Essex ■

Thurman super responds to lawyer termination

To the Editor: Town board meetings are supposed to be for conducting town business. Thurman residents have expressed concern, disapproval and disgust over the 2018 Thurman Town Board meetings. They have approached me with questions regarding what can be done about the inappropriate actions of a particular board member whose behavior is having a negative effect on the town. They have also given suggestions and advice ranging from enforcing Roberts Rules of Order to removal of the board member from the meeting. When New York state made the rules and laws for town boards, they assumed people in town government would be reasonable, rational people that have respect for themselves, others and their town. Therefore there is no section in law that deals with how to handle

Something else. While perhaps benign, these signals could squash plans of those seeking to revisit, relocate or otherwise invest in the community. This isn’t a matter of building some type of liberal utopia, but seeks to answer an existential question facing the Adirondacks. Survival. We need to attract people to maintain school enrollment and fill workforce gaps. And we cannot do it without importing people. Adirondack Diversity Solutions has also called for business owners and not-for-profits to follow the state’s potential example by “executing both a workplace climate survey, along with developing a diversity and inclusion strategic plan that outlines how their organization will expand the reach of its mission, broaden its talent pool and appeal to new markets and communities.” On that, we disagree: While the intentions are good, it would ultimately act as an unfunded mandate on small businesses, as well as an unnecessary intrusion into the private sector. However, that doesn’t mean that small businesses can’t benefit from these initiatives somehow. Diversity is our nation’s biggest strength. We should embrace it — especially here in the North Country. — The Sun Editorial Board ■

inappropriate and irrational behavior of a board member. Moreover unreasonable people cannot be reasoned with and people who have no respect for themselves cannot be expected to show respect and consideration for others. For the time being, we (Thurman) have to live with what we’ve got. There is nothing that can be done to bring an out of control board member to order. Town law also deals with voting. Majority rules, period. On a five-member board, three votes is a majority. In recent months, three Thurman Town Board members have made unwise decisions. An example of one of their unsound decisions is the firing of the town attorney, appointed since 2009. The attorney legally could not and morally would not fulfill the unethical demands of Councilwoman Gail Seaman. Therefore she, along with Needham and Ackley, fired him. It is unfortunate, but it is their right to do so. For the time being, we have to live with whatever they decide. It is a sad time for Thurman but we will get through it. Cynthia R. Hyde, Thurman Supervisor ■

While the public health benefits of raising the purchase age are clear, it still has ramifications for those under 21 who already smoke. Should this law take effect, there are a number of local organizations and agencies in Essex County with staff dedicated to providing tobacco cessation counseling, including Adirondack Health, Essex County Mental Health, Hudson Headwaters Health Network, Mental Health Association of Essex County, St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation Services, and UVM Elizabethtown Community Hospital.

If you or someone you know are among those who would be affected by this proposal, the North Country Health Heart Network wants you to know that there are programs and services to help you quit. Last year, the Institute of Medicine estimated that raising the age to 21 would reduce the number of smokers nationwide by 12 percent. Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows 90 percent of smokers started before turning 19.

LGBTQ town hall meeting set

PLATTSBURGH | The purpose of this LGBTQ Town Hall gathering is to bring together member of the Adirondack North Country LGBTQ community, their families, friends, and allies to create connections with the various communi-

ties around New York State. These gatherings have occurred across NYS to help clarify firsthand what the need, issues, visions and goals are for our LGBTQ communities. We will look at Issues/Problems, Vision/Goals, Action Steps, as well as acknowledge and celebrate positive steps the local Community has taken. Most of all we want to hear your experiences of being LGBTQ here in the North Country. This will not be an immediate problem solving session. Rather, the information gathered will allow advocates to create a comprehensive legislative agenda, as well as direct the work needed to create a social movement in New York State which will achieve public understanding and support for the LGBTQ communities. Additionally, we hope these meetings will be a springboard to collaborative work for social, economic and racial justice for all people in New York.

Guest viewpoint

Stable coyote packs benefit farms and communities By Carly Summers GUEST COLUMNIST

to prey on livestock. The more we can encourage our neighbors to respect coyote packs and resist shooting them, the easier it will be to establish and maintain peaceful cohabitation with coyotes. We really don’t have a choice. Killing coyotes doesn’t work. Not only this, peaceful coyotes in your midst who kill rodents have important benefits for your herd. Livestock herds suffer from the increased tick pressure resulting from predator eradication, just like we do. Coyotes keep rodent populations down around your farm, providing an irreplaceable service to you. Unlike predators, rodents also consume a surprising quantity of forage, competing for the food source of your herds. Knowing all this, perhaps now you are willing to give the coyotes a chance. But you are still worried and need to know what to do if one of the coyotes fleeing a destabilized territory desperately attacks your herd. First, remember that if you are lucky enough to have a stable pack around your farm, it will actually protect you from other coyotes. Yet another reason you should treasure your stable pack. Local farmers and coyote researchers also swear by guardian animals. Whether you choose llamas, alpacas, donkeys or guard dogs (Project Coyote has useful resources about this subject), guardian animals are highly effective at deterring predators of all sorts— even ravens that attack from above. Also important: make sure to check the health of your livestock frequently, taking care of sick and weak members and removing carcasses promptly. As you can imagine, sick and weak members, or carrion, can attract predators who otherwise would not approach healthy livestock. For those of you who love coyotes and happen to sneak them treats with the hope you can glimpse one in your yard: please resist the urge. Coyotes need to rely on wild prey and learn to avoid, not approach, humans. If a coyote is exploring too near your farm, try hazing: actively scaring the coyote away by shouting, waving your arms, and even throwing objects in its direction. Coyotes are keystone creatures in the ecosystem. We benefit just as much from them living in stable, healthy packs as does the rest of our environment. Hopefully this little ecology lesson will inspire you to envision coyotes in a new, positive light the next time you hear a pack singing. Interested in learning more about predator-farm and predator-community relations? Contact Carly at cfs82@cornell.edu ■

Coyotes help farms? Can this be true? What about the converse: killing coyotes hurts farms. Yes. Both true, albeit, perhaps surprising, statements. I think many of us get the impression that since coyote populations seem to be doing well, coyote shooting tournaments or occasional hunting can’t hurt the coyotes. However, killing coyotes does hurt farms. Here’s why: Coyotes live in socially-complex packs where members teach each other and play specific roles. Coyotes mate for life and are monogamous. When coyote packs are stable, coyotes hunt wild prey and teach their young to hunt wild prey. They settle into their territory and learn the patterns and habits of their wild prey, and their diet consists largely of rodents. They do not risk encounters on farms to kill livestock when their natural prey surrounds them in a familiar territory. Stable packs also defend their territory, ensuring that stray (unstable) coyotes stay away; this also helps limit the coyote population in your area, as stable packs naturally self-regulate to maintain lower populations that they can easily feed. When we shoot any member of the coyote pack, the pack is destabilized. This results in several outcomes that create problems for our farms (and neighborhoods where perhaps your small pet becomes an easy target for a hungry, afraid refugee). The coyote pack disperses, causing the territory to dissolve. Fearful, desperate coyotes will roam land unfamiliar to them where they do not have a grasp on the wild prey habitat. The coyotes, knowing the danger that exists in hunting livestock on farms, will nevertheless be driven by hunger to kill obvious prey, like sheep, as they cannot establish a stable territory in which to hunt wild prey. Ironically for us, but logical for the pack, as soon as we start shooting coyotes, they breed more and have larger litters. For now, living in the Adirondack Park where some coyote packs can find stable, unthreatened territories, we still have essential members of stable packs present to teach their young how to hunt wild prey and prefer it. However, it is of utmost importance that farmers understand the ecology of coyote behavior and how hunting coyotes drives them —Carly Summers serves as the ag educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Westport

Presenting with passion You can be the world’s most eloquent speaker, having a mastery of the human language and complex words to be By Keith Lobdell able to deliver and drive • STA FF W RITER • any subject home to an audience. But without feeling, you can lose people. Last week, I watched as a speaker put passion into his words. By the end of the night, he did not just have everyone on the edge of their seats: he had them smiling, intently listening and, in some cases, furthering their commitment to change.

From the sidelines This person is Richard Jensen. Jensen was at the Strand Theater in Plattsburgh last week to talk about his road from rock bottom. He was addicted to painkillers, opiates, hard drugs and more. He was in prison when he lost his mother and decided to turn his life around. He spoke about the time he had not only robbed from himself, but from his kids and family members. He spoke about working very hard to earn back the trust of his children to the point where they would call him daddy again. He talked about starting over from the absolute bottom until he got to where he is now. It was similar to four months ago when former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf came to SUNY Plattsburgh to talk about his battles with addiction. Both were put on by Substance Abuse Prevention and Recovery

of Clinton County, and both were about not only overcoming the pitfalls, but trying to avoid them. Each presentation was well-received by audience members. But there was a big difference with Jensen, and that was not in the presentation. It came afterwards, when it was time for the Q&A portion of the program. One recovering addict would tell their story and ask what Jensen would or did do when facing the same or similar situations. Then another. And another. One asked about how she could keep her child out of a cycle that started with her parents and continued to here. It was the one thing she does not want to hand down to her child, and she was

afraid it had already happened. Another was a high school girl asking not for herself, but how to help a friend get onto the recovery path instead of the addiction one. Each time, Jensen listened. He thanked each person and did his best to answer, at times not being afraid to say, “I don’t know the answer for you, but it’s something we need to have people talking about.” It was powerful, inspiring and uplifting to see all these people not only coming together, but healing together with no judgments or scorn being cast their way. Just talking it out, trying to do their best the only way they can. One day at a time, one hour at a time, one discussion at a time. Hopefully, we can all show the same empathy when needed. ■

Asked why she didn’t raise any concerns or propose edits to the code in a public forum, Armstrong told The Sun that she has been conducting independent research and looking at comparable policies from different cities, like Santa Clara, California. “I will report out when I have more to say and a better idea of what direcWe don’t need a Bible, tion I want to go,” she said. but perhaps we do need The code of conduct will be on the a Sermon on the Mount or council’s docket for consideration again on May 17, after this edition Ten Commandments.” went to print.

“While the above three areas may lack in a few areas of administration dealing with employees, I believe these could be better dealt with via an employee handbook or perhaps a memorandum of understanding,” Dowdle said in an email. “There is also the legality of a code of conduct.” Armstrong said that she’s interested in working with her fellow councilors and the mayor to develop a compromise document. “The (existing) document is too lengthy and prescriptive,” she said in an email. “We don’t need a Bible, but perhaps we do need a Sermon on the Mount or Ten Commandments.” As for a section in the proposed code that would impose limitations on discussions between councilors and department heads: “If further clarification is needed regarding how lines of communication between managers and councilors operate, perhaps a separate policy could be developed by the mayor in collaboration with the council,” she said. “An employee handbook might be a better place to outline expectations and a code of conduct for staff.” Councilor Patrick McFarlin (Ward 5) deferred comment until a later date, noting that he needed more time to properly review the policy. Councilor Michael Kelly (Ward 2), who expressed support for the policy earlier this month, said that he had nothing new to add. Councilors Joshua Kretser (Ward 6) and Peter Ensel (Ward 4) did not respond to a request for comment before this edition went to print. ■

PLATTSBURGH | Citing a need for more time to review the policy, the Plattsburgh Common Council last Thursday opted to delay voting for the second consecutive week on whether or not they would implement a city government-wide code of conduct. “I feel like we’re undergoing a healthy and good process and having conversations amongst ourselves and offering edits,” said Councilor Rachelle Armstrong (Ward 1). “We’d like to continue that process for at least another week.” The code, proposed by Mayor Colin Read last month in an effort to bolster taxpayer trust following what he perceived as a wave of negative headlines detailing employee resignations and leaked emails, has been criticized by government watchdogs as utilizing vague language, particularly regarding what constitutes confidential information. An updated version of the code revealed on May 3 soft-

COUNCIL DELIBERATES

Councilors appear to vary in where they stand on implementing a code of conduct. Councilor Dale Dowdle (Ward 3), who for the last few weeks has called for an ethics board to be convened, doesn’t favor a code. He pointed to provisions in the city code that deal with ethics, a handbook for city officials that outlines municipal ethics, and the city charter, as existing resources for ethical conduct.

‘Buddy benches’ unveiled at Rouses Point Elementary Parents, teachers hope safe space will encourage new student friendships By Elizabeth Izzo STA FF W RITER

ROUSES POINT | Be the reason someone smiles today. That’s the message, surrounded by bright, colorful smiley-faces and written in big, bold black letters on a bench at Rouses Point Elementary School — and one that teachers hope will prevail when it’s time for recess. This bench, one of two “buddy benches” built through a collaboration between local high school students, the Rouses Point Parent Support Group and American Legion Post 912, was created with the idea in mind that a child need only sit there to find a friend to play with. “We want to continue to build compassion and inclusion. It’s a hot spot in any school,

I believe, that in those unstructured areas kids may feel alone and not know how to problem solve,” Rouses Point Elementary School Counselor Wanda O’Connell said. “The goal is to create a culture of passion and inclusion, and really cut down on that feeling of exclusion, so when a child goes to recess, there’s no feeling of isolation. “They know they have someone to play with.” If a kid is feeling lonely or excluded, all they have to do is sit on one of the buddy benches placed on the elementary school playground. That way, their peers know they’re hoping to find someone new to play with, and those peers are encouraged to reach out and include them. “Children watched a video on how to use it and had safe school ambassadors show them how to appropriately use (the buddy benches),” O’Connell said. So far, the project has been pretty successful: “I’ve had several students come up to me and say, ‘I’ve helped someone.’” These buddy benches are the latest in a series of monthly lessons, fundraisers and community service projects with a focus on kindness that students have participated in this year. ■

G/ensFallsNational *Home Equity Line of Credit advances may be taken either by using standard Home Equity Line checks provided by the Bank, online or by signing a separate Installment Loan Agreement with its own home equity loan rate and term. Minimum advance by the combo installment loan method is $5,000 with a maximum of four outstanding loans at any time. As principal is repaid on the installment loan(s) advance(s), the available credit on the line increases by an equal amount. 2.69% APR applies for the first 12 months of the home equity line agreement. This 2.69% interest offer does not apply if the line purpose is to refinance an existing Glens Falls National mortgage or home equity balance. At conclusion of the 12 month introductory fixed rate period, APR will be calculated based on the highest Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal.

Wrestler recalls fight with addiction, offers inspiration Richard Jensen battled addiction for 17 years By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

PLATTSBURGH | Richard Jensen visited Plattsburgh last week to listen to stories of addiction and share his own. Jensen, a recovering addict and professional wrestler whose story was featured on ESPN and received an Emmy award, battled addiction for 17 years. “This can happen to anybody,” Jensen said about the dangers of opioid abuse. “You could be a guy who has been dedicated to his job for 30 years, gets hurt one day and goes to the doctor because he trusts the process, then he is fighting for his life.” While Jensen introduced himself and his story throughout the night, it was the question-and-answer session that

brought the discussion to life, with local addicts seeking recovery turning to Jensen for advice and wisdom. “You know what I found out — getting clean is not the hard part, but staying clean is the real hard part,” Jensen told one member of the audience. “Everything else can figure itself out if I do my part and stay away from the drugs and alcohol.” He also took time to empathize with a parent, talking about how he had to earn the respect and love back from his daughters. “I robbed my kids from the one thing they really needed in a father,” he said. “The biggest championship I have now is being a dad and my kids being confident enough with me to call me dad.” Jensen addressed a parent worried that past family experience would affect their child’s life. “You have to communicate with them,” Jensen said. “The problem is we lost our communication skills — real communication skills with the youth. We need to learn to have intent conversations with them and make them feel part of something.” The event was sponsored by Substance Abuse Prevention and Recovery of Clinton County. Cpt.

» Broadband Cont. from pg. 1 “A large amount of our tax dollars have gone to a program that has not achieved its advertised goals and we must find out why,” Ortt said. More than half of the locations in the third and final round of grant awards announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Plattsburgh in January will be served by satellite. Hughes Network Systems, a Germantown, Maryland-based provider, received $15.4 million in state subsidies from the state Broadband Program Office (BPO) to offer service to nearly 76,000 addresses, including much of Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. But Ortt believes satellite service doesn’t constitute coverage, and those who will actually receive broadband won’t receive it until 2020. The lawmaker also criticized the governor for taking what he said were premature victory laps across the state. “If you’ve been listening to the governor, you’d believe this program has been a massive success,” Ortt wrote in a letter to Sen. Terrence Murphy, the committee’s chairman. “Perhaps he’s misinformed — or perhaps he’s out of touch with upstate New York — but through conversations with countless constituents, telecommunications experts and local officials, one thing has become clear: this ‘mission accomplished’ attitude couldn’t be more wrong.”

BILLION DOLLAR EFFORT

Upon the program’s launch in 2015, 30 percent of New Yorkers lacked access to broadband. The state pledged $500 million in subsidies, and dispatched newly elected Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul to Lake Placid to make the announcement as her first official North Country appearance. When paired with $170 million from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and investments from telecommunications providers, total spending is expected to top $1 billion. Work continues around the state and the full $500 million commitment has not yet been disbursed. But all funds have

Published by Denton Publications, Inc.

been committed to projects after the final round of grant awards, which amounted to $225.5 million statewide. In addition to the probe request, Ortt has introduced legislation that would require yearly financial reports from the BPO documenting how any new funding is spent. This legislation would be retroactive, requiring a detailed report on what and where the initial $670 million was used. “The program has yet to meet its goal of connecting every New Yorker and it lacks the safeguards of detailed reporting, which would allow us to hold the (BPO) responsible for the initiative’s current status,” said Ortt. “The public has the right to know how and where their hard-earned tax dollars are being spent, and in the interest of accountability and transparency, this legislation would help do that.” The bill has been advanced to the Senate Finance Committee, where Ortt hopes the legislation will be voted on and moved to the floor in time to be passed before the end of the session in June.

SPECTRUM CLASH

Empire State Development (ESD), which oversees the BPO, has punched back against Ortt’s accusations. “While Sen. Ortt is no stranger to political grandstanding, he’s clearly unfamiliar with the facts regarding our broadband efforts,” said Jason Conwall, a spokesman for ESD. “The New NY Broadband Program is not only the largest and most ambitious of its kind in the country, but also one of the most transparent economic development initiatives you will find anywhere, with all projects prominently displayed on our website and a broadband availability map showing current coverage and commitments.” The potential probe complicates an already contentious broadband landscape in the Empire State. The state program runs parallel to expansion efforts by Spectrum, who agreed to expand broadband to 145,000 locations statewide by 2020, many of them in rural areas, as part of their merger agreement with Time Warner. But Spectrum, too, has been in the spotlight as the state Public Service Commission is attempting to force the provider to pay $1 million for falling behind their expansion agreement. It’s a clash that may escalate, as the governor’s office warned last week the provider’s ability to operate in New York City may be in jeopardy. “The governor believes it is essential that corporations

doing business with the state uphold their commitments, and we will not tolerate abusive corporate practices or a failure to deliver service to the people,” said Dani Lever, press secretary, last week. “Large and powerful companies will be held to the same standard as all other businesses in New York,” Lever said. “The Spectrum franchise is not a matter of right, but is a license with legal obligations and if those are not fulfilled, that license should be revoked.” State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) agrees. “Spectrum needs to make good on their promise of connecting homes and do it faster than they have been,” Little told The Sun on Wednesday. “The public has a right to know where things stand and what the plan is for those areas that remain unserved. Conwall said Ortt appears to be conflating Charter’s build-out commitments and timeline with those for the New NY Broadband Program.” “Our goal has always been providing access by the end of 2018, while Charter’s deadline is 2020,” Conwall said. “As he is likely aware, most of the senator’s district is served by Charter. The state has not been satisfied with Charter’s buildout — to the extent that it recently fined the company and initiated an investigation. “While the state’s broadband initiative remains on track, we are also focused on ensuring Charter meets its commitments to New Yorkers.” The BPO and Spectrum have not made details on the expansion areas public, citing their proprietary nature. But numerous locations in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties stand to be served. Spectrum says they are complying with both the merger and the New York City franchise agreements. “Charter is bringing more broadband to more people across New York state. We exceeded our last buildout commitment by thousands of homes and businesses,” Lara Pritchard, a Charter Spectrum spokeswoman, told The Sun on Wednesday. “We’ve also raised our speeds to deliver faster broadband statewide. We are in full compliance with our merger order and the New York City franchise, and we will fight these baseless actions vigorously.” ■ — This story has been abridged for print.
