Underground Railroad association sets sights on saving historic barn ‘History & Freedom: Herstory’ next Saturday to help raise funding By Jeremiah S.

And, though Keese Smith — a known abolitionist in the 1800s and nephew of Samuel Keese, head of Underground Rail-
road in Peru — never actually said in his recollections he had people in that particular barn, the man was said to have had “large buildings in which he concealed people.” “We’re combining his recollections and the fact there is a mysterious room that is built in to the barn,” said Papson.

Breaking the spring break tradition
Students, other volunteers aiming to help elderly By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com
PLATTSBURGH — It’s not always about fun and sun when students go on spring break. Dr. Colin L. Read, professor of economics and finance at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, has found more and more students are interested in an initiative he established locally called the “Alternative Spring Break.” It was last year when Read and his daughter — then a high school student — traveled to Louisiana during her school’s mid-winter recess. The two were part of a group helping communities still reeling from Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005. “We came back up and I saw a letter to the editor in the Press-Republican asking why people spend all this money going to other communities to fix them up when there are plenty of needs right here,” said Read. When Read sat back and thought about the cost of airfare and other travel arrangements necessary to do volunteer work out of the area, he said the person who wrote the letter had “a pretty good point.” “Just imagine if people in Louisiana would’ve used some of that money to fix up their places and we used some of that money to fix up places up here,” Read said. “We could’ve probably done a lot

more good with that money.” That motivated Read to establish the Alternative Spring Break, giving students — and anyone else for that matter — a chance to do volunteer work in the community, specifically focusing on helping senior citizens. “I even mentioned it to the local Rotary Club at a meeting and the next thing you know, I’ve got like six or eight of them volunteering,” said Read. “So, all kinds of people end up coming together to help organize this.” Read said another important part to making the three-day event happen was coordinating with Maria Alexander, executive director of the Senior Citizens Council of Clinton County. Alexander reached out to seniors to see if any were in need of assistance through the project. And, there was no shortage of people, said Alexander. “There are so many people in Clinton County who need help with this kind of work,” she said. “And, they’re proud, so they don’t necessarily want to ask for it.” Alexander said it was especially great to see the students connect with seniors, bridging the generation gap through simple acts of kindness like painting, fixing doors and cleaning up yards. “I think it’s great they brought the college kids in because it shows they care about the community as well,” she said. Walter Mitchell agreed. While many proj-

ects were in Plattsburgh, the volunteers even visited outer communities like the town of Peru, helping people like Mitchell, who was touched by the volunteers’ help. “I appreciated it, of course,” said Mitchell, “because there’s always something to be done around here.” Volunteers installed two doors for Mitchell in his home, which was something the 87-year-old said saved him from having to do it himself. Read said being able to help people like Mitchell is what makes the whole Alternative Spring Break worthwhile. “Many elderly people really have a hard time keeping up with some of the general repairs,” said Read. “They’ve even told us horror stories about trying to hire people out to help them do these things and not getting the

Read said he’s looking for volunteers as well as elderly people in the community who need help with odd jobs. Read may be reached at 561-3828 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. “We’re not really set up to be able to get up on people’s houses and replace their roofs, but if it’s something people think students and other volunteers could do in a day or two, we’d love to help them,” said Read.

y mom e-mailed me recently posing the commonly heard computer question of “Should I turn it off or leave it on?” I belong to the turn-it-off crowd. Leaving it the computer does waste electricity, but if the system goes to standby the electricity is not very much. Computer systems are all different but standby power consumption is very little. The good side of leaving it on is the system does not cool down and then warm up again when turned back on. Some people believe the cycles of on and off creating periods of warm and cool are what makes electronic devices fail over time. The theory is it causes different things to occur like “chip creep” or it causes an “open” condition in a solder joint. Chip creep is terminology that describes how an IC device slowly backs itself out of the socket it’s plugged into. For an analogy, think about the AC plug for the TV. If every time the TV was turned on and off the plug would come to a point where the TV would not power on any more because the con-

Self-neglect and the elderly: Know the signs
1998 study found in the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed self-neglect among the elderly is associated with an increased risk for death. Generally, persons who refuse medical treatment or neglect their own care are unaware they need assistance. There are clues caregivers can look for to give them a better indication of whether their loved one needs a higher level of intervention. Caregivers should ask: • Is my loved one malnourished? • Is the refrigerator well-stocked with fresh food, or are there old, spoiled foods? • Are they showing signs of poor hygiene? • Do they have infections or sores that are not healing? • Are they taking their medication or are they taking it in the manner in which it was prescribed? • Are they becoming socially-isolated? • How is their hearing and vision? Have they been assessed recently? Dementia, depression, and substance abuse problems are frequently associated with self-neglect. If self-neglect is suspected, the next logical step is to determine whether they are safe to return to their home. A physician will need to be consulted to assess their level of psychological functioning. If the

nection is lost. All that aside, I turn it off because of the fire hazard potential. Computer power supplies are the component with the highest failure rate. They typically have one or two fans with the cheaper ones usually having only one. The fan performs double duty by cooling the power supply and exhausting the warm air from the computer case. The fans tend to collect dust, dirt, pet hair and whatever else can be drawn in which, in turn, slows down or stops the fan causing the computer to overheat and, worst-case, catch fire. Turn it off, mom.
senior is not in immediate danger, some less urgent approaches can be explored. Medication management may be the first step. Some medications, if taken incorrectly, can cause or contribute to confusion. A healthcare professional can help determine if that is the case. Friendly visitors or telephone calls can serve as reminders to take medications. Adult daycare can be a wonderful social outlet, combining supervision with activities and meals, if desired. This is especially helpful in situations where depression is suspected. The goal is to help seniors remain independent as much as possible, and as much
as practical. For more information contact the Behavioral Health Services North Caregiver Resource Center. The Senior Connection is a column provided by the Clinton County Office for the Aging.

How to jump on the 12-week savings cycle
any people do not have the cash flow to stock up the way you do. The economy has really hurt the budget of the average family and they are no longer able to shop the way they used to (such as taking advantage of the sales and buying extra). Do you have any tips for us? I do use coupons but would like to take better advantage of my buying power. I just don’t really know how.” I particularly liked this letter from a reader. It encompasses the way many people feel when they first start using coupons. It’s a common misconception I spend a lot to stock up on quantities of the items that I buy each week. My weekly grocery bill for our family of five averages between $40 and $60 post-coupons. But for that money, I’m typically buying around $100 worth of groceries. Supermarkets operate on a 12-week pricing cycle, so stocking up on the things we need when the prices of these items hit their low point during this period makes sense. When you know the items you buy are at their lowest prices just one time during that cycle, buying them only when the price hits that low saves us a lot of money, even without using coupons. Let’s take juice, for example. At my store, a bottle of grape juice can range in price from $1.99 to $3.99. Clearly, I want to buy the juice when it’s at its low price. If my family drinks one bottle of grape juice a week, I’ll need 12 bottles to get through the next 12-week cycle. While it’s true the initial expense of buying that juice all at once requires more than one might choose to budget just for juice in one week, consider the savings in buying it at that low. A typical juice price cycle over six weeks at my store may look like this: Week 1: $1.99; Week 2: $2.29; Week 3: $2.79; Week 4: $2.99; Week 5: $3.29; and Week 6: $3.79. If I purchased one bottle a week over this 6-week span, I’d spend $17.14. But, if I bought six bottles the week it was at its lowest point, on sale for $1.99, I’d spend a total of just $11.94. That’s more than $5 saved in just six weeks’ time, without even considering coupons. Of course, I want to use my coupons at that low point, thus lowering my out-of-pocket cost even more. If you shop cycle lows for everything you buy, you’re definitely buying multiples of items when the prices are low. Re-
member, though, you will not buy that item again until it goes on sale weeks from now. So, while I might spend a large percentage of my budget on juice in a particular week, I won’t buy juice again at all until it’s on sale at a low price some time down the road. If you followed me around the grocery store, you’d see I fill my shopping cart with an eclectic mix of items. It rarely contains all of the staples you might notice in other people’s carts, because aside from fresh produce and dairy I shop strictly for items that are at their cycle lows that particular week. I usually have what looks like an unusual quantiBy Jill Cataldo ty of the same item in my cart, because I’m stocking up! I will of course use all the coupons I have for those items as I purchase them at the low price. But even if I don’t have coupons for all of them, as with our juice example above, I know I won’t be able to purchase these items at this low price again for almost three months, so I buy what I anticipate needing. This is a different way of shopping, it’s true, but the strategy balances out budget-wise when you consider what you’re NOT buying each week. Typically, when you’re starting out, it takes you 12 weeks to go through your first cycle, where you start to notice and learn the price highs and lows for the items you commonly buy. Those first 12 weeks are going to be a little more expensive, because you’re also going to have to buy the things your household needs as you build your stockpile. If you’re out of laundry detergent, you’ll buy it because you need it, regardless of the price. But a few weeks later, the price may hit a cycle low, and it will be time to stock up for the next time you need it. Then, the next time you need laundry detergent you’ll “shop at home,” because you have extra on-hand you purchased when the price was at its low. And after that first 12 weeks, your home stockpile will include all of the basics you use frequently ... and that you will no longer be paying high prices for! © CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal.

Rockeaters? Hillbillies? Not hardly, says I
very day, I get the opportunity to meet and speak with some very interesting people in our beautiful North Country. Contrary to the belief by some writers for Saturday Night Live that Gov. Paterson views us as “rockeaters” or “hillbillies” — an infamous viewpoint that if you haven’t heard you can Google the topic and find hundreds of listings — there are many amazing people here. One such person is Walter Mitchell, a man who lives in the town of Peru. I had the privilege of being invited into Walter ’s home for a story that actually appears in this week’s edition about students taking an “alternative spring break” by helping the elderly in the area. He spoke with me about how students helped last year by installing some doors for him in his home, a project that can be an undertaking for a person in their 80s (Incidentally, Walter celebrated his 87th birthday March 5, the day after we talked, so happy birthday, Walter!). I have to say I got more enjoyment from our brief conversation in his living room sitting by his woodstove than I’ve ever gotten sitting in a press conference or chasing down a lead for a breaking news story. Not that those things aren’t important, but it’s connecting with our readers, readers like Walter, that make you remember why you got into this job in the first place. They’re the ones whose lives you try to touch with your words, with the stories you tell. We’re always looking for interesting people to speak with
... ones who tell us their stories. Recently, I saw a broadcast of the CBS show Sunday Morning, in which correspondent Steve Hartman reflected on a segment he used to do called “Everybody Has a Story.” The premise was he would take a dart, aim it blindly at a map of the United States, and go to wherever the darted landed. There, he would open the phone book, pick a number at random, and speak to that person. Whomever he found, he found with them, an interesting story. It’s a great idea. Maybe I should take a dart, throw it at the map of Clinton County I have at my desk, and go where the dart lands. Or, maybe I could just open the phone book, point to a number at random each week and reach out to that person for some interesting conversation. It might be worth a shot. While I mull over the idea, let me know what you think. Would you be interested in this kind of feature in our publication? Or, do you know someone who has an interesting story to tell? If so, I’d like to hear about it. Remember, this is a newspaper that brings you stories important to you, our readers — readers just like Walter.

gardens help foster a sense of community, educate people of all ages about the natural environment, and studies have shown they even decrease crime and vandalism. Another common theme all successful community gardens share is structure. Some are organized in a top-down fashion by local government. Others are grassroots organizations run by nonprofit organizations. Currently, there are several established community gardens in our area. In Clinton County, the Plattsburgh Community Garden is in its second year. Along with allotment style gardening, there will be a teaching garden where novice gardeners can learn how to grow their own food. This garden will be taught by Cooperative Extension staff and Master Gardener volunteers. In Essex County, community gardens are either under way or being planned in Keene, Lake Placid, Westport and Saranac Lake. Anne Lenox Barlow is the horticulture educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Clinton County.

Supportive of funding for learning second languages I am writing this letter in support of maintenance of funding for Second Language Proficiency and Regents Exams. The Checkpoint A Second Language Proficiency Exams and the Checkpoint B Comprehensive Language Exams are highly reliable and valid assessments which have direct correlations to the well-defined New York State Learning Standards. They have received national and international recognition as models of proficiency based assessments. Through these quality assessments, we have raised the bar for our students in New York State. We must do everything we can to maintain the progress we have made in recent years with standards-based education. According to Education Commissioner David Steiner, “The value of fluency in multiple languages cannot be overstated in the twenty-first century, when the emergent conditions of life bring more of us more often into circumstances that, on the one hand, ask us to travel through the complex terrain of a globalized economy and, on the other, bring far-flung local parochialisms to our doors through the vastly expanded reach of new communication technologies.” Liberal Education Magazine - Spring 2009. In the 21st century global economy, New York State cannot afford to lose its momentum. Without well-articulated state assessments to support quality instruction, our competitive edge in the global market place will be at risk. New York State was just announced as a finalist in the first round of competition for the “Race to the Top.” On March 4, 2010 Commissioner Steiner wrote: “These reforms aim to ensure that all of New York’s public schools have truly effective teachers and principals, high quality curricula, well-designed assessments and are focused on the academic success of every child.” Our current teachers are effective, our curriculum is high quality and our assessments are well designed. It is counterproductive to eliminate the Second Language Proficiency and Regents Examinations as a cost-cutting measure. David Graham Morrisonville

Endless possibilities of community gardens T
hroughout the United States, there is a growing trend in community gardening. Simply put, a community garden is a piece of land gardened by a group of people. These gardens are as diverse as the imagination. While food production is central to many community and allotment gardens, not all have vegetables as a main focus. Many gardens have several different planting elements, and combine plots with such projects as small orchards, herbs and butterfly gardens. The structure of a community garden can be as diverse as the plants grown in the garden. Some gardens are tended to as a whole by a dedicated group of community members. If food is grown in a garden managed in this style, the food is typically divided among the gardeners, given to local food shelves, or sold at a local market. Other gardens are divided into clear plots assigned to individuals. These types of gardens are known as allotment gardens. Typically any fruit, vegetables, herbs or flowers grown in allotment style gardens belong to the individual tending that allotment, though they are often encouraged to donate some of that food back to the community. Besides increasing the food security of a community, these

New class is giving adults something to dance about By Sarah L. Cronk email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — Irish dance not only puts people in touch with the culture, but gives a great aerobic workout as well. Last September, Marie Short, Irish dancer and teacher of the Champlain Valley Irish Dance group, began coaching a group of adults on the basic steps of Irish dance. Many of the adults were parents of the students Short teaches every week at the Senior Citizens Council on North Catherine Street. “My daughter ’s very involved with Irish Dance and I was here every Thursday evening as it was,” explained student Holly Benoit. “I thought I may as well take part.” Short, who comes to Plattsburgh every Thursday from Montreal, explained there have been many successful adult classes at the Bernadette Short School of Irish Dance, also in Montreal. “We are so excited to try it down here,” Short said. “It’s going really well. The adults are really enjoying it.” The adult students, unlike the younger students, take the class for the enjoyment

of it, with no plans for competition. “They’re not too interested in the performance aspect of it,” Short explained. “It’s more of just a class for exercise and to learn the dances and things like that.” Some of the dances the adults are learning include
Irish reels and jigs and ceili dances, or group dances, such as Walls of Limerick and Lannigan’s Ball. “I know it’s great exercise, but it doesn’t feel like exercise,” Benoit said. “You’re trying to concentrate on the steps. It’s challenging.” According to Marcy Mc-

I was supposed to run 8 miles but only got 5 in before my asthma started bothering me. I took the necessary precautions and I stopped early, rested and took my inhaler. This is still a win for me as last year I wouldn’t have been able to run at all and the result would have been much worse. By mid-week, I have been feeling better and I am back to toning and spin class as normal. I plan to run the 8 miles

My cravings for sweets are getting less and less so that has been a real positive for me. I feel so much stronger as a person; I can actually say I am proud of myself for the journey I am on. I believe I am setting some lifestyle changes that I can maintain. Check back next week to see if I could do the 8 miles or not!

North Country Biggest Loser participants begin program By Sarah L. Cronk email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — Although 43 applications were turned in to the city Recreation Department, only 10 people will be taking part in the North Country Biggest Loser. Each participant will be working alongside trainer Mary Duprey and registered dietician Ann Watts to stay on track. “Basically I’m just going to start out very easy,” explained Duprey. “Actually walking two or three miles, or even a mile, is difficult for them.” The members of the program began March 1, meeting at the city gym, where they will receive free memberships for the duration of the North Country Biggest Loser. During the kickoff, each participant took the time to tell their story.
“It was pretty emotional,” Duprey said. “There weren’t too many dry eyes left at the end. It was really neat. It was really inspirational for me to hear all that.” Now that Duprey has met with each of the members, she, along with Watts, plan to work with each member to individualize their workouts and diets — as each member is individualized in the reason they applied for the program. · Steve Pierce, Dannemora — “After a lifelong struggle with being overweight, I now, more than ever, need to get my lifestyle changed so I can see my three children, Kaitlyn, 8, Jacob, 7, and Lucas, 3, grow up and have their own families — So I can be a grandfather to their children. · Larry Mills, Keeseville — “This isn’t just a weight issue, it’s a life issue. My goal is to lose the weight in order to lower my hypertension, in or-
der to be healthy in retirement.” · Rosemary Bell, Plattsburgh — “My main reason for to wanting join the program are health reasons and I want to be around for my daughter.” · Aleshia Bond, Plattsburgh — “I’ve always been overweight and until about a month ago, have pretty much accepted it. I’ve tried to lose weight many times, but either became discouraged when I didn’t see results I wanted, or tried less and less until I wasn’t trying at all ... The best part is that not only do I get to come closer to my goals everyday, I’ve met nine other people in my same situation, all working towards meeting their goals too.” · Jennifer Goddeau, Plattsburgh — “I just had a baby nine months ago and I’ve been on countless diets. I did a lot of things to go ahead and lose the weight but when my primary doctor went ahead and gave me a referral to
Fiske now full-time manager of local Nutrishop PLATTSBURGH — Robert Fiske of Peru is now the full-time manager of the local Nutrishop store, one of the fastest growing retail nutrition chains today. When the store — located at 47 Smithfield Blvd., in Perrywinkle’s Plaza — opened in October, Fiske was employed full-time as a pilot. However, since mid-December, Fiske has retained full management of the busi-
ness and, since January, is no longer employed as a pilot. His efforts are taking off since January was the Plattsburgh store's best month so far, according to Fiske, who said the best part of that success is getting more in touch with his customers. “I have really enjoyed getting to know our customers more, and helping them to identify the things that
will help them get maximum results for their efforts in exercise, weight loss, and just over all good health,” said Fiske. Fiske has researched the products he sells with the outcome of his research leading him to strike exclusive licensing for distribution with Katalyst, VitaSport, and NuTek products through Nutrishop. In addition to sports nutrition and weight loss, the
cision that it was time to incorporate diet and exercise into my life as well as manage my diabetes so that I could live a healthy lifestyle.” · Jim Snook, Plattsburgh — “For me the motivation was my family. Angela, my wife, has encouraged me for years to lose weight. I look at my children, Emma, 6 and Gabriel, 3, and realize that I won’t be around for them if I don’t change my lifestyle now.” The North Country Biggest Loser is now on Facebook, which Duprey hopes more people, not just the participants, will utilize. “I think if they’re following us and kind of watching what we’re doing, ... they can mimic that themselves,” she said. “We’d like to have [people] go on there and try to encourage the 10, plus get any information out of it they can.”
bariatric surgery ... then I knew it was actually time.” · Randy Hilliker, Plattsburgh — “I joined the competition because I wanted to lose a lot of weight and I wanted to become more active and try to get off of some medicine. To try and lead a better and healthier lifestyle.” · Jennifer LeCuyer, Plattsburgh — “This program appealed to me because I have been waiting for something like this to come along for a long time. I want to be present on this earth for a little bit longer and I have a niece who is 8-years-old with whom I am extremely close. I want to be here for her and be a good role model for her. I was looking for a way to change my life for the better, and I am finding it through this program.” · Tamber Shepard, Plattsburgh — “I realized that life is too short, and there is so much more I want to experience and accomplish. I made the de-
store stocks vitamins, cutting-edge supplements, T-shirts and supplies, refrigerated sports beverages, quality snacks, teas, and gluten-free products.

Due to the pagination error, a line stating the national bee will be held in Washington, D.C., and listing North Country Parents for the National Spelling Bee as a co-sponsor of the regional spelling bee, was omitted.

has been in dire need of repair for some time. The problem, said Papson, is the previous owners cut a structurally-critical beam to adjust the height of the barn’s second floor. “Right now, the problem is one of the walls is bowing out. If it isn’t stabilized, then we could lose the whole barn,” said Papson. The main focus is to raise enough funding to stabilize the structure and eventually restore it to its original condition. The NCUGRHA and the Perusses have been working with an architectural engineer and a barn restoration expert to determine the cost of an overall restoration. The initial stage of stabilizing the building could cost up to $5,000, Papson said, estimating the total project could be as much as $75,000. “That’s very high, but it just depends on how much work we do down the road,” he said. The cost to restore the barn could have been covered through a state grant at one

president of the Female AntiSlavery Society, said Papson. The March 19 event, which will begin at 7 p.m., will feature a performance by Sounds of the Northway, featuring female artists Ann Ruzow Holland, Cathie Davenport and Jennifer Van Benschoten. During the evening, a presentation about the restoration project will be made, including photographs of the barn in its current state. Papson said he hopes people will be moved by the presentation and the NCUGRHA’s efforts to save the structure. “This is our history and if we don’t save it, it’s going to be gone,” said Papson. The cost of admission will be $10 for adults and $8 for children and senior citizens. For more information, call 561-0277 or visit www.northcountryundergroundrailroad.com.

point, explained Papson. However, the Perusses would have had to claim the grant as income, thereby changing their tax bracket status. Also, the grant would have made the Perusses responsible for the structure for several years with any future repairs needing to come from their own pockets. “We found out very few of these restoration grants for barns were actually accepted by people when they found out what strings were attached,” said Papson. That’s why the NCUGRHA is hosting a fundraiser next Saturday, March 19, at the Peru Community Church on Elm Street. The event, said Papson, will focus on the role of women in the fight to abolish slavery. Catharine R. Keese, wife of Samuel Keese and aunt to Keese Smith, will be recognized.

American Red Cross - North Country Chapter The Red Cross - 128 Years of Helping America North Country Chapter of Red Cross Celebrates American Red Cross Month This March
TOGETHER, WE CAN SAVE A LIFE The North Country Chapter of the American Red Cross is celebrating Red Cross Month this March by giving thanks to the thousands of people in this community who have personified America’s humanitarian spirit by donating their time, money and blood during the last year. America has always been a place of humanitarian action and compassion. A place where people take care of each other whether they are down the block or around the globe. Putting compassion into action is deeply rooted in the American character and the people of the North Country are no exception. “Although hurricanes and tsunamis make the headlines, many people forget that the day-to-day work of the Red Cross takes place in communities like ours and is made possible by ‘hometown heroes’ who volunteer their time and is funded by voluntary contributions from local citizens and businesses,” says Kelly Donoghue, volunteer chairman of the North Country Chapter of the American Red Cross. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was first to declare Red Cross Month in March 1943, a tradition that has been continued by every President since Governed by volunteers and supported by community donations, the American Red Cross is a nationwide network of nearly 900 field units dedicated to saving lives and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Led by one million volunteers and 36,000 employees, the American Red Cross annually mobilizes relief to families affected by more than 70,000 disasters. In addition, they train almost 12 million people worldwide. The American Red Cross is the largest supplier of blood and blood products to more than 3,000 hospitals across the nation and also assists victims 4732 State Route 3, Saranac, NY 12981 of international disasters and conflicts at locations worldwide. 518-293-8801 • Fax 518-293-8823 Marsha J.

Lip Synching From page 1 And, many students really get into it. The acts don’t traditionally consist of a student or group of students simply standing at a microphone. In fact, it’s quite normal to see choreography worked into their routine, complete with costumes. Hunter Sartwell and a group of his fellow sixthgraders were practicing onstage recently. The four will be performing “My Girl” by the legendary Motown recording group, The Tempta-
tions, in tuxedos provided by College Formals in Plattsburgh. “We’ve watched the on-line video well over a hundred times,” Sartwell said of The Temptations’ performance. “I’m very excited and nervous,” added Sartwell. “We have no experience whatsoever.” Eighth-grader Shania Howard doesn’t either. “It’s my first year [in the show],” said Howard. “It’s very nerve-wracking but I think it’s also exciting.” Howard and her stage partner Karri Kusalonis, also an eighth grade student, will be
performing Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party.” “I’m excited ... a little nervous,” said Kusalonis, who has performed in the show twice before. Regardless of how they ultimately perform, Menard said she’s amazed by what students put into the event year after year, adding she’s especially excited for the effort their putting into the show’s silver anniversary. “I told the kids we need to make this a big one because I’m not going to be around for the 50th,” laughed Menard. The 25th anniversary show will be held next Saturday,
March 19, in the Peru Central Middle/High School Auditorium on School Street. The show will begin at 7 p.m. and refreshments will be served in the lobby from an old-fashioned milkshake stand. The cost of a ticket is $7. Advance ticketholders will be eligible for door prizes at the end the show. “We try to include everyone in the fun,” said Menard.

Adirondack Home Show this weekend to show how to save money and help the environment By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — The Adirondack Builders Association’s Adirondack Home Show has been known for showcasing the latest products and styles for home improvement projects for the last 17 years. However, this year, there’s an addition to the annual event that shows — contrary to popular belief — it can be easy being green. This year ’s two-day event — slated for this weekend, Saturday, March 13, and Sunday, March 14 — will focus on alternative energy options and energy-saving products. Allison Hulbert-Bruce, a member of the ABA board of directors, said the event will show people they can make home improvements that are easy on their budgets and have a positive impact on the environment at the same time. “We’re going to have seminars focusing on green and alternative energy products, so we’ll be having people speaking about solar energy, geothermal heat, tankless water heaters — things like that,” said Hulbert-Bruce.
Reducing water consumption and using higher-efficiency heating options are also among the topics to be discussed during the home show. “We want to be able to show people that when it comes to heat, for example, there are alternative fuel sources to oil and, that if you have to use oil, you have the most efficient furnaces possible and getting the most out of your fuel,” Hulbert-Bruce said. “I’m very excited,” she added. “I’m hoping the seminars will be something we can continue to do year after year and expand on. They’re a great addition to the show. We’re really going to have a lot for people to see and learn about.” American Standard will be among the vendors at the show, discussing low-flow shower heads, faucet fixtures with aerators to reduce water flow and water consumption, said Hulbert-Bruce. Toilets with duel flushing systems that are also higher-efficiency and lower water consumption, will also be on display. Cabinet manufacturers that use sustainable forestry practices will also be featured, showing how green practices are now at the forefront in the minds of many companies. “There are many cabinet companies actively involved in planting a certain number of trees for every tree cut down,” said Hulbert-Bruce. “There’s also a stove line that for every stove they sell, they plant a tree. Everyone’s trying to focus more on being environmentally-friendly.” The Adirondack Builders Association Adirondack Home Show will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show will be held at the Crete Memorial Civic Center on Beach Road in the town of Plattsburgh. For more information or directions, call 643-0828 or visit the ABA Web site at www.adirondackbuilders.org.
Bring on the ‘Fiddles, Vittles and Ales!’ Fundraiser this Saturday to help Clinton County ARC By Jeremiah S. Papineau firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — The Advocacy and Resource Center of Clinton County is raising money in a rather unique way. “Fiddles, Vittles and Ales,” a fundraiser that will offer Irish music, food and beverage, will take over the West Side Ballroom on New York Road this Saturday, March 13. It’s an event ARC executive director Theresa Garrow is thoroughly excited about. “We had a wine and food tasting last year and that went over well. So, we thought we’d try it again, but this time with beer,” said Garrow, who said there were many who expressed interest in that kind of event. “It seems to be the new big thing, pairing beer with foods.” “We thought around St. Patrick’s Day would be the perfect time,” she added. Those who attend, said Garrow, will receive a small souvenir beer tasting glass to try a wide selection of foreign and domestic beers. Garrow added she’s particularly excited to have brewing companies from across the region bringing more local creations. “There will be many different kinds of ales,” she said. In addition to beer sampling, the nonprofit organization teamed up with Westside Ballroom chef Kevin Thornton to prepare a food
tasting portion for the event. Lobster bisque, pan-roasted chicken, lamb and salads are just a few things on the menu for sampling, paired with various beers, said Thornton. “We’re not contrasting any flavors, it’s all straight-forward pairing. Everything will go together,” he said. An Irish buffet will also be set up during the event featuring an Irish stew, bread pudding, Irish soda bread and roasted vegetables. The food portion of the evening will also include a cheese course and a dessert course, the latter of which will feature an Irish bash cream pie, said Thornton. Musical entertainment by Celtic band Inisheer will help round out the evening. The event will kick off with a social hour at 5:30 p.m. followed by the tastings. Inisheer will begin playing at 7 p.m. Fiddles, Vittles and Ales may also include a silent auction, she added. “We’ve gotten quite a few donations from various businesses, so we’ll probably tie that in,” said Garrow. Tickets for the event are $25. Proceeds of the event will go toward establishing a second respite house for families of loved ones with disabilities, said Garrow. For tickets or more information, call 8345439 or 563-0930.

Second Saturday Cinema: The Hidden Gem By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — Second Saturday Cinema is entertainment not everyone knows about. However, Eddie Suarez, who oversees the monthly movie show at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship church on Palmer Street, wants that to change. Second Saturday Cinema, now in its second year, stemmed from the church’s board of directors purchasing a high-definition projector for a stage show its Sunday school was performing. The idea of starting an informal movie club came about and grew from there, said Suarez. “We acquired a special license offered to houses of worship that’s allowed us to have public showings of motion pictures from many major mo- Eddie Suarez stands in front of the big screen at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship church on tion picture studios,” said Suarez, who Palmer Street. Throughout the fall and winter seasons, the church shows movies the second Satadded the church received surround urday of each month. Photo by Jeremiah S. Papineau sound equipment from Alpha Stereo. The only catch, said Suarez, is that “It definitely hurts us,” said Suarez. “Some people just the church isn’t allowed to publicly announce the name of say, ‘Oh, just put [the name of the film] in the paper.’ But, the film when advertising its showings. That, in part, is what we take our licensing agreement very seriously and federal Suarez believes has kept more people from coming to the copyright law very seriously.” church for an evening of cinema. There are instances, however, when Suarez has been able
to announce the name of a film. In January, when the church showed “Rethink Afghanistan,” Suarez said he was able to freely promote the documentary about the ongoing war in Afghanistan, “When we showed that, we didn’t obtain the rights through our licensing agreement,” he said. “We obtained the rights directly from the distributor. So, we were allowed to mention the title.” Suarez said he understands the fact the movies are shown in a church may deter some, though he noted Second Saturday Cinema is a nondenominational event. “We just wanted to offer an event free of charge, allowing members of what is sometimes a culturally-underserved community, access to certain films. It’s a community service for us,” said Suarez. “If people want to ask questions about the fellowship itself or what our missions are, we’d be happy to tell them, but it’s a community event.” Second Saturday Cinema will host one of its last two showings for the fall-winter season this Saturday, March 13. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with the show to begin at 6 p.m. Again, because of its licensing agreement, Suarez said he can’t state the name of the movie, but said it is a 2008 children’s film created by a prominent Japanese filmmaker featuring the voices of a star-studded cast. The feature film for the last showing of the season, Saturday, April 10, is currently being decided. Those who want to know more about Second Saturday Cinema, including the names of showings and how to be added to a mailing list for upcoming shows, may visit www.uuaplattsburgh.com or call 561-6920.

Deer take way down in the northern zone T
he poor deer take in the northern zone last season is no longer a rumor. While hunters harvested 222,800 deer statewide during the 2009 season — nearly the same as 2008 — the deer take in the northern zone was down nearly 20 percent, state officials said last week. Even more telling was the buck take, which dropped from 20,726 in 2008 to 16,279 in 2009 — a drastic 27 percent reduction. The total deer take in the northern zone was 28,464 in 2009 compared to 33,938 in 2008. Some local hunting clubs estimate the take was down by 40 percent or more, the worst season they’ve seen in decades, and the numbers seem to follow my prediction of the deer take being lower in region’s hardest hit by the winters of 2007 and 2008. Take, for example, Warren, Essex and Hamilton counties. In 2007, hunters killed 1,192 bucks in Essex County, 964 in Hamilton County and 637 in Warren County. In 2008, that number rose to 1,244 bucks in Essex; 1,298 in Hamilton and 722 in Warren. But, in 2009, the take dropped drastically to 873 in Essex, 430 in Warren and just 510 in Hamilton — more than a 50 percent decline. All this means that if you tagged a buck last year, consider yourself in fortunate company. Some hunters have criticized the state’s policy against feeding deer saying it contributes to the mortality rate — especially during severe winters. But, wildlife officials say deer populations tend to be cyclical, and the herd is sure to rebound, especially after the mild conditions experienced this winter. The DEC also noted a motivating factor behind the feeding ban was to stop the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease, which was first detected in New York in 2005. The spread of CWD has, at least for now, been held in check. More than 30,000 deer have been tested since 2005, without one positive case of CWD found. State officials generally refute the argument there were less deer last year and instead blame the unusually warm November experienced by northern zone hunters for the poor take here. But, senior wildlife biologist Ed Reed said in some of Region 5, especially southern parts of the region, other factors contributed to the low deer take. “The past two winters in southern Hamilton County, Warren County, and northern Washington, Saratoga, and Fulton
counties were harsher than average and we did experience some winter kill,” Reed said. “Also, in both of those winters, the deep snow came very early, well before the end of the regular season, causing some deer to begin moving toward wintering areas while hunting season was still open, making them more vulnerable to hunters.” Some hunters are aware of deer migration routes and concentrate their efforts on those routes when the snow comes early, Reed said. “The increased buck harvest, as a result, will reduce the buck harvest the next year or two. For example, the 2008 buck harvest in Hamilton County was the highest since 1969, but, in 2009, it dropped off significantly.” The silver lining, Reed said, is the low harvest in 2009 coupled with this winter ’s mild weather should mean better deer numbers this fall.

Program aimed at improving balance In the interest of getting older folks up and enjoying outdoor activities, Adirondack guide Elizabeth Lee of Westport and Willsboro-based physical therapist and personal trainer Brian Trzaskos will team up to present a unique program to the public on balance, aging and outdoor living. The free event will be held this Tuesday, March 16, from 10:30 -11:30 a.m. at the Wallonsburgh Grange. People of all ages are encouraged to attend. Lee said the program will offer specific ideas and incentives for adults to resume outdoor activities they enjoy. Paramount to that, however, is a sense of security, she said. “I think a lot of older people have a real fear of falling and an uncertainty about safe terrain which keeps them from enjoying outdoor activities — especially during the winter months,” Lee said. At the March 16 program, Trzaskos will share in-depth knowledge of lifestyle patterns and physical dynamics which can improve balance and flexibility at all ages. Lee said she hopes many residents will attend and, in turn, feel more comfortable with pursuing an active lifestyle at any age. For more information, contact Lee at 962-4756 or email@example.com. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My brother Brian’s son, Wyatt, poses with a monster 8-pointer shot at my camp by Bill Kohen during the 2009 season. This year’s annual deer hunting report showed nearly 16,000 14 and 15-yearolds had signed up for the “Junior Big Game License.”
Camper scholarships deadline March 22 SCHUYLER FALLS — The Lake Champlain chapter of Trout Unlimited will again provide two scholarships for interested young men and women 12-17 years old to attend the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's popular summer camp program. The camps, located at Camp Colby, Pack Forest, Debruce and Rushford, provide an unusual opportunity to learn more about our environment and New York State’s natural resources. Campers enjoy a week of summer fun and conservation education conducted by DEC's well-qualified counselors. The scholarships provide all funds needed to attend. Parents provide transportation to and from the camp for the one-week sessions, which are conducted in July and August.
The scholarships are a memorial to Sam Theusen, an educator, leader and angler who devoted his life to young people in the North Country. Those interested in applying may send a one-page letter telling explaining why they are interested in learning more about our the outdoors environment in New York State to Gretchen Comfort, 749 Norristown Road, Schuyler Falls N.Y. 12985 by Monday, March 22. Registration for the camps fill up fast, so those interested are encouraged not to hesitate to apply. For more information, call 563-1985, e-mail email@example.com or visit the state DEC Web site at www.dec.ny.gov.
