SCHUYLER FALLS — The town of Schuyler Falls prides itself on not forgetting its history, and especially in not forgetting its historians. The town officially dedicated its historian’s office June 26 in honor of past town historian Leo L. Perry. The town’s current historian, Marvin M. Connor, who succeeded Perry in 1993, applauded Perry for his years of service from 1987-1993 and the assistance he still gives to this day. “I have been very fortunate that Leo still particiaptes as a historian,” said Connor. “Leo has been be-
hind almost every project we’ve done.” Though the 81-year-old Perry is proud of his past role in the preservation of local history, his fondest memories were of the people he met throughout the years. While in office, Perry made it a point to interview the town’s older citizens to draw from their wealth of knowledge. One woman in particular, named Tessie Gamache, was one of Perry’s favorites. He first interviewed her when she was 98 years old. For Perry, the encounter was as if it happened yesterday. “The first time I went up to interview Tessie, she was out back of her house hoeing

Tri-county area has new 2-1-1 system By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — The new regional 2-1-1 telephone system is now on-line after nearly three years of planning and development. During a press conference held June 30, John C. Bernardi, executive director of the United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties, stated the system is now available for use in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. The system operates similar to the 9-1-1 emergency and 4-1-1 information systems, said Bernardi, allowing callers to dial — at no cost — a three-digit number to be connected with health and human service providers in the tri-county area. The service, which is accessible by dialing 2-1-1 from a cellular or landline
phone, will connect callers with a central call center where an operator is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. The operator is then able to refer the caller to services such as childcare, mental health professionals, food pantries and government assistance programs. During off hours, a recording will greet callers with directions to call back during regular business hours. “The service is really there to provide callers with the information that they need to access services that are available in our region and close to their home,” explained Bernardi, who served as chairman of a steering committee established by the United Way for the system’s development.
Sweet sounds of summer The town of Peru kicked off its summer concert series last Sunday with a performance by the rock and roll band Hot Rod Lincoln.

‘Tea Party’ protest set for this Saturday PLATTSBURGH — The city of Plattsburgh will among cities across the nation protesting “fiscal irresponsibility” in Washington, D.C., and Albany this Fourth of July. A “Tea Party” will be held at this Saturday, July 4, at Trinity Park on City Hall Place beginning at 10 a.m. The event is mirrored after the infamous Boston Tea Party held in December 1773 in which colonists protested taxes of the British government. According to co-organizers of the event, Jonathan Nelson and Oliver M. Barie, this will mark Plattsburgh’s second protest by local residents in three months. April’s Tea Party attracted nearly 100 protestors, a number which Nelson and Barie expect to double this Saturday. “We cannot just sit here and watch as our government creates massive debt for generations to come,” said Nelson. “Our government thinks it can spend its way out of debt,”
added Barie. “I may be only 19, but even I know that the answer to massive debt is not more of the same.” A number of local civic and business leaders, including Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce president Garry F. Douglas and Plattsburgh City Mayor Donald M. Kasprzak, have been invited to speak. Nelson and Barie also expect a large turnout of young people. The program will include an open microphone session with a maximum of two minutes for any person wishing to speak in support of fiscal responsibility. The protest will last approximately one hour and will conclude with a tribute to the original Independence Day. Attendees are encouraged to bring flags and homemade signs. Those wishing to assist or make donations to cover expenses are asked to contact Barie at 420-2486 or Nelson at 569-7574.

Making sure your computer is up-to-date
eeping computer software updated is important maintenance for both operation and security interests. Updates are needed for the operating system, applications and utility programs such as the antivirus/antispyware solutions. When it comes to the operating system I ask “what’s your spack?” Spack is a geek term meaning “service pack” which is considered to be a major software update. Operating systems are routinely updated through a hotfix or security update but Spacks are a culmination of many minor changes that, taken all together, are considered major. Currently Windows XP is at SP3 while Vista is at SP2. One method to see the level is to right-click on “My Computer” (“Computer” in Vista) and select “properties” from the menu. On XP, the System Properties dialog box appears with the desired info located on the General tab. The info includes the operating system version, OS type (32 or 64-bit) and current Service Pack level. On Vista, the info is not tabbed as it is with XP but it does normally appear on the initial page. Typically the Windows update mechanism will install Service Packs automatically. Another way is to do a manual installation, which includes downloading the file (making sure the Spack matches the operating system as 32 or 64-bit) and then running it. Know that some Service Packs require
other Service Packs before they can be installed. If I remember correctly Windows Vista SP2 requires the PC to already have SP1 before installing SP2 so a little homework goes a long way toward success. Spacks come as .exe files which are self extracting executables. Close and save any work in progress and backup everything important, then double-click the By Ron Poland downloaded file to start the procedure. When complete, the downloaded .exe file may be deleted. Visit microsoft.com for more information.

Gout: One of the most painful rheumatic diseases
ccording to the National Institutes of Health, gout occurs when needle-like crystals of uric acid build up in connective tissue, in the joint space between two bones, or in both. Most people with gout have too much uric acid in their blood, a condition called hyperuricemia. Uric acid is a substance that results from the breakdown of purines, which are part of all human tissue and are found in many foods. Gout frequently first attacks the joints in the big toe. The affected joint may become swollen, red or warm. Attacks usually occur at night. To confirm a diagnosis of gout, the doctor inserts a needle into the inflamed joint and draws a sample of synovial fluid, the substance that lubricates a joint. A laboratory technician places some of the fluid on a slide and looks for uric acid crystals under a microscope. If uric acid crystals are found in the fluid surrounding the joint, the person usually has gout. Physicians often prescribe high doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, or steroids for a sudden attack of gout. NSAIDs are taken by mouth and corticosteroids are either taken by mouth or injected into the affected joint. Patients often begin to improve within a few
hours of treatment, and the attack usually goes away completely within a week or so. Researchers have discovered some of the risk factors for gout. Some people with gout have a family history of the disease. In addition to inherited traits, diet, weight, and alcohol play a role in the development of gout. The disease is more common in men. Different types of arthritis have different symptoms. In general, people with most forms of arthritis have pain and stiffness in their joints.

Beaches are open, flowers are in bloom — summer’s here!
une brought some warm weather finally! The City Beach has opened, flowers are blooming, High School Graduation parties are over, and outdoor activities are back. Plans for July 4th, Mayor ’s Cup, and the Quadricentennial are ongoing. It was a very busy month for me in June. Local leaders met with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to discuss our issues and concerns. Plattsburgh State held a Quadricentennial Event showing the art work of Samir Sammoun. The First lady of New York, Michelle Paterson, attended. I had the pleasure of attending a dinner with her after the showing. The Special Olympics Torch Run stopped by City Hall and it was once again a wonderful event led by the New York State Police. The
Plattsburgh North Country Chamber held their Annual Business Expo at the PSUC Fieldhouse. It was great to visit with the local business owners and their staffs. The Annual June Jubilee at the Middle School was enjoyable and fun. Nova Bus held an event to introduce the staff and its first class facilities to the public. General Manager Jim Tooley will do an outstanding job for the company. The City of Plattsburgh dedicated the new Park on the Water-
front. I had the privilege to attend the 2009 Zone 9 Law Enforcement Graduation. I attended the Open House for the Plattsburgh VA Clinic which is an excellent facility with a superb staff. I took a tour of the United College Housing Project with Councilors Valentine, Calnon, and Jackson. I had meetings throughout the month with Mike Perrotte of Airborne Speedway, John Morgan of the Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project, Bruce Steadman of PARC, Jim Salmon and Mark Leta from NYSEG, Paul Grasso of Work-
SourceOne, Judy Tyo and Karen Rulfs of First Niagara, and Adore Kurtz of The Development Corporation. I will be attending the New York State Conference of Mayors Meeting in early July. July is scheduled to be a very busy month with July 4th festivities, Mayor ’s Cup Celebration, FLW Fishing Tournaments, Airborne Speedway Mayor ’s Cup Challenge, and Quadricentennial events. Please make sure you plan on attending as many of these events as possible! Have a great July! Donald Kasprzak is the mayor of the city of Plattsburgh.

Reader mail: How to handle e-coupons and confused cashiers I Dear Jill, I never knew that I could stack a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon that I clipped from the newspaper. After picking up this tip I learned from you, I am already saving a lot! Here’s my question. One local grocery store I like publishes its store coupons in the weekly flyer. Another store puts them on its Web site, which somehow transfers them to your store card. How does this work? Is it worth trying? Dear Shopper, Many grocery stores offer store coupons that can be electronically loaded to your store’s shopper loyalty card. Here’s how it works. If your store offers electronic coupons, visit the store’s Web site and look for the coupon area. You’ll be prompted to input the number of your shopper loyalty card. If it’s your first time visiting the site, you may also be asked to register for a free account. Once you sign in, a list of current coupons will appear. At some grocery chains, the coupons that appear on your screen are tailored to you,
based on your purchase history collected through use of your loyalty card. If you’ve purchased diapers in the past you might receive discounts on other baby items. If you’ve purchased pet food you may see coupons for pet treats and supplies. You also may receive discounts for a brand that competes directly with a product that you purchase regularly. At other grocery chains, all Web site visitors are offered the same selection of electronic coupons. Regardless of how a store determines the assortment of coupons available to you, loading them onto your shopper ’s card is quite simple. Typically, the store’s Web site either loads all of the available coupons to your card automatically or it will prompt you to click the specific offers you’d like to add. Once they’re added, you’re ready to shop! You don’t even need to print the page from the Web site; the discounts will register automatically when your card is scanned at the register. Ready for the best part of electronic coupons? Because they’re tied to your shop-
per ’s card they function as store coupons, so you can “stack” manufacturer coupons on top of them for even bigger savings. If you have a $1 electronic coupon for apple juice and add a manufacturer ’s 50-cent coupon you’ll save a total of $1.50. Dear Jill, Do you ever have problems with cashiers? I went to the store yesterday with some coupons I printed from the Internet and the cashier told me they didn’t take Internet coupons. But I printed the coupons right from the store’s own Web site. Is there anything I can do?
Dear Shopper, I’ve heard this question from By Jill Cataldo other shoppers. I, too, have gone to the store with a fistful of Internet coupons, ready to slash my grocery bill dramatically, only to hear “We don’t take Internet coupons.” This can be frustrating to a shopper who knows that the store has always taken them in the past and, as you said, the store offers the printable coupons on its own Web site. So what’s a shopper to do? The answer can
be found in the store’s own coupon policy. Many stores publish their coupon policies online so that shoppers can read them before coming to the store. If your store doesn’t have its policy online e-mail them and ask for a copy or ask for one at the customer service counter when you visit the store. Coupon policies are a shopper ’s best friend. They outline almost everything you could ever want to know about coupons. Does the store double coupons? Does it accept Internet coupons? Are there limits on how many coupons a shopper can use? Armed with these answers, you’ll be better prepared to shop at your favorite store. In many cases, you’ll also learn what I suspect is true in your case – that the store does accept Internet coupons (especially if the store offers them on its own site!) It appears that your cashier was simply confused about the store’s policy. © CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal. Learn more about couponing at her Web site, www.super-couponing.com. E-mail your own couponing victories and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Girl asks donations be made in lieu of birthday gifts CVPH pediatrics unit receives books, games and more from10-year-old and friends By Jeremiah S. Papineau firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — When Lindsay Brelia of Peru was getting ready to turn 10 years old, she wasn’t excited about all the presents she would get. In fact, she didn’t want presents at all. What Lindsay did want was for her friends to help her do something to help others. All it took was a simple request. “Instead of my friends bringing me presents for my birthday party,” explained Lindsay, “I put on the invitations to bring something to donate, like games, books and puzzles.” Lindsay’s friends followed her wishes, collecting those and other items which they all then brought to the pediatric unit at CVPH Medical Center June 26. Lindsay’s mother, Danyelle Brelia, said she was proud of her daughter for making such an unselfish decision. The two had dis-
cussed having an alternative to birthday presents this year after Lindsay received “so much stuff” last Christmas. “All I said was, ‘Let’s try to think of something different to do instead of presents,’” recalled Danyelle. “And, this is what she came up with. I think it’s great.” Lindsay’s mother said she made the connection to the hospital for her and Lindsay took it from there. “She was pretty psyched and her friends have all seemed to jump on board with it,” Danyelle said. Lindsay’s philanthropy has even rubbed off on her brother, Ethan Brown, who helped collect donations for the hospital as well. Ethan is planning to collect donations for his 12th birthday this September to benefit the Elmore SPCA animal shelter in Peru. “I think it’s a good idea,” Ethan said of collecting donations instead of birthday gifts, “because it can influ-
ence other people to do the same thing.” And, it already has. Ethan’s and Lindsay’s friends have already begun thinking of doing something similar for their birthdays, each impressed with the generosity of the two siblings. “I think this is great that they thought of this instead of getting presents for themselves,” said friend Madison Tyler. Maria Hayes, director of the hospital’s Center for Women and Children, said she commended Lindsay and her friends for their generosity. “These donations are wonderful because when children are here sick or undergoing a procedure, time can just creep by,” said Hayes. “By offering them some form of entertainment, it helps that time pass, even for a moment.” “Anyone who makes donations like these is just a remarkable person and we thank them,” Hayes added.

Good-looking perennials, dangers of wild parsnip
hile perennials come and go all summer long a few make a big show and need a little attention after blooming to keep their good looks. Lupines do well in our cooler climate but are absolute magnets for aphids. The best way to deal with them is to cut the entire flower stalk to the ground as soon as the flowers fade. New, attractive leaves will quickly regrow and you’ll be able to enjoy the showy leaves all summer. The trick to making peonies look their best is to prune them back pretty hard after flowering. It’s obvious where the flowers were, huge seed heads are left behind. But rather than just cutting off the seed pods, use a pair of hand clippers to cut each flowering branch back by about half. By making the cut well into the leaf canopy the cut is hidden and the result is a well shaped shrub with no blunt, stubby branches. Baptisia or false indigo is another shrub-like perennial that takes up even more space than my peonies. Both baptisia and peonies die to the ground over the winter so they don’t have woody stems like true shrub, but they take up so much space on their own they’re considered shrub-like in form. This is fine as long as you give them enough room Both baptisia and peonies are long-lived and unlike most perennials they don’t need or like to be divided. Choose the site carefully for either of these plants then sit back and watch the show.
Watch out for wild parsnip Wild parsnip is just beginning to bloom along roadsides this week so here’s my annual warning don’t touch this
plant! It causes huge, watery blisters on your skin that can leave scars that last for years. It’s not quite as itchy as poison ivy but makes its victims just as miserable. Be on the lookout; it’s quite easy to see from your car along roadsides right now. It has yellow-green flattopped flowers on upright plants about 30-36 inches tall. It reminds me of a yellowish Queen Anne’s lace alBy Amy Ivy though up close the leaves are quite different. Your skin needs to come into contact with the leaves and then be exposed to sunlight for the reaction to occur. Be especially careful when weed-whacking or using a push-mower. Wear long pants and long sleeves when working near this plant. Regular mowing will keep it in check but it reproduces by seed so it will keep coming back. For more information call our office or visit our Web site to see a picture.

In the weeks to come, the town will host “Treasure Hunt, Orienteering, and Building a Teepee,” July 14; “Kayak Day,” sponsored by the Clinton County Youth Bureau, July 21; “World of Colors,” July 28; “Team Building Day,” Aug. 4; “Get a Clue Day,” Aug. 11; “Science Day,” Aug. 18; and the “Fear Factor End-of-the-Summer Beach Party,” Aug. 25.

Historian From page 1 her garden,” said Perry. “I went up to her and said, ‘I don’t know if you remember me or not.’ She said, ‘Oh, yeah, you’re the little Perry boy from down the hill.’” Impressed with how quickly she recognized him, Perry instantly stuck up the first of many lengthy conversations with Gamache. However, the first was one that left a lasting impression on him. During their conversation, Gamache talked about keeping in shape and showed Perry how she could bend down and lay her hands flat on the ground while still standing up. “I told her how I wished I would’ve known she was going to do that because I would’ve taken a picture,” said Perry, who said he asked her if she could do the feat again. “‘Well, of course I can,’” Perry recalled Gamache saying. “She said, ‘You tell me

Spahr, who is a special education teacher at Franklin Academy High School in Malone, said she worked with a forensic teacher this year who taught her a great deal, which she hopes to share with kids this summer. The activities offered at Chazy Lake Beach Days are at no cost, with all activities held from 1-4 p.m. The program is geared toward all children of the town of Dannemora, including the village of Dannemora, and the communities of Chazy Lake, Up-

Bernard Barber, who served as town supervisor during Perry’s time in office, said he was very appreciative to be invited to the ceremony which officially marked the unveiling of the plaque in Perry’s honor. “It’s seldom we get a chance to recognize a resident who’s contributed as much to the town as Leo has,” said Barber. Though now a resident of Florida, Perry said he keeps Schuyler Falls and the North Country in his thoughts. “I’ve been away for 15 years now, but I haven’t been away from the history of the town of Schuyler Falls,” said Perry. “I’m still very interested in it and I want to do all I can to help out.”

Officials say majority are compliant with WHTI By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com CHAMPLAIN — It’s been a month since new regulations have been put in place for cross-border travel between Canada and the United States, but officials say it’s business as usual at ports of entry in the North Country. Kevin Corsaro, a public affairs liaison for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the majority of motorists crossing from both sides of the border are doing so with proper identification and documentation in hand in order to be compliant with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. WHTI, to which it is commonly referred, requires all U.S. and Canadian citizens wanting to cross the border to carry a passport or other form of single-document proof of citizenship and identity as of June 1. Despite the new regulations, Corsaro said there has been no noticeable effect on the amount of traffic or length of wait times at the border. “We really have nothing to indicate that traffic is up or down because of WHTI,” said Corsaro. That may be due, in part, to the Customs and Border Protection’s more lenient than anticipated enforcement of the regulations, still allowing motorists
to cross without what Corsaro referred to as “a WHTI-compliant document.” Documents suitable for U.S. citizens for border crossing include a U.S. Passport, U.S. Passport Card, New York State Enhanced Driver License and NEXUS card. Canadian citizens are required to have a Canadian passport, Quebec Enhanced Driver License or NEXUS card. “We’re still in the informed compliance stage,” explained Corsaro, stating motorists would be expected to comply once informed when crossing the border without proper WHTI-compliant documentation. “We will not refuse a citizen entry into the United States if their only violation is they don’t have a WHTI-compliant document. We’ll continue to educate them.” There is no definitive timeframe as to when Customs and Border Protection, which is overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, will make having WHTI-compliant documentation mandatory, said Corsaro. “We’re waiting for further guidance from the [Department of Homeland Security], but we’ll be in the informed compliance stage until further direction,” he said. Corsaro also noted children younger than 16 years old are still able to travel
across both sides of the border with a valid birth certificate when traveling with their family. Children ages 16-19 traveling with organizations such as school groups are also able to present only a valid birth certificate when crossing, he added. According to Clinton County Clerk John H. Zurlo, the average wait time for a passport or passport card once an application has been filed is about four to six weeks. The amount of time it takes to receive an enhanced driver license is about 10 days. The Clinton County Clerk’s office has processed more than 3,000 applications for enhanced driver licenses, commonly referred to as EDLs, since being first made available last September. For more information regarding enhanced driver licenses or other documentation available for crossing the border, contact the Clinton County Clerk’s office at 565-4700 or visit www.nydmv.state.ny.us/edl.htm. The Customs and Border Protection Web site, www.cbp.gov, and WHTI Web site, www.getyouhome.gov, also have information about cross-border travel requirements and how to obtain necessary documentation.

Graduates encouraged to keep scaling brick walls to reach success By Jeremiah S. Papineau firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Though the graduating students of Peru High School have faced many brick walls in their high school careers, they were reminded each challenge has presented its own reward and ability to shape their futures. The 2009 graduating class of Peru High School filled the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Field House June 27 as they prepared to embark on the next chapter in their lives. Valedictorian Alice Robinson said when deciding what she would say in her speech, she drew inspiration from the late author Randy Pausch, who wrote the book “The Last Lecture.” Pausch, she explained, was dying of pancreatic cancer, and toward the end of his life tried to teach others how to cope with difficulties which he called “brick walls.” “Brick walls are not there to keep us out,” Robinson said, quoting from Pausch’s words. “The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the
people who don’t want it bad enough.” “Throughout our four years at Peru High School, we seniors have had to scale many brick walls to reach this day,” Robinson said. “No matter how high our obstacles have been, everyone sitting in front of me has risen to the occasion. We have used our own abilities, creating our own climbing paths. Some have relied on physical and mental strengths, some have depended on friends, while others have cleverly used resources surrounding them.” The greatest brick wall of their high school career — graduation — has brought the members of the graduating class to a point where each must choose a new path, complete with its own set of new brick walls, said Robinson. “No matter how difficult it is to get up that next wall, I know each and everyone here can make it, whether its college, the military, or work,” she said. “Always remember this view from the top. Look around you now, take in this moment. You can see not only what you have conquered, but also what is in front of you.” As each student moves for-
ward, each can take with them the wisdom they’ve accumulated over the last four years of high school, said salutatorian Abby Roberts. And, though they’ve learned a great deal, she said, there is much more to be learned and much more to be experienced outside the walls of Peru High School. “I know that I am intimidated by starting college in the fall and saying goodbye to my comfortable and familiar school and small tightknit community,” said Roberts, “but I also realize that I can turn this change into a spectacular chance to lead my future in the direction I would like it to go.” Regardless of what direction each student chooses, Roberts reminded her fellow graduates “every single day we make decisions that affect our lives.” “Right now, at this very moment, we are all deciding our futures,” said Roberts. “Take this opportunity to listen, learn, and grow. Listen to your parents, teachers, and friends. Learn from your mistakes and from listening to others. Grow by learning from your past and use it to shape your future.”

Seton Catholic hosts 20th annual commencement exercises By Jeremiah S. Papineau firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Forty-six students from Seton Catholic Central have now begun their journey into the real world, experiencing life after high school. The school hosted its 20th annual commencement exercises at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Hawkins Hall June 20, as graduation speakers reminisced about time spent at the parochial school and looked toward the future. Valedictorian Genna M. Hartung reflected on her high school career as a time when memories were made. Each laugh, each tear, each mistake and each success made the students who they are today, said Hartung, with each moment in their lives being just as important as the other. “It is also within minutes and seconds that a life can change: a baby is born, a loved one dies, or a graduation ceremony commences,” said Hartung. “It is interesting how life can be so defined by such a minute passage of time.” Statistically, the passing moments are insignificant, Hartung said.

You’re not average.” “You have been given the opportunity to be above average,” Ryan continued, “and you have that opportunity in front of you for the rest of your life.” Mark L. Barie, president of the school’s education council, recognized that same quality in the graduates which he said helped the graduates reach one of the first of many milestones in their lives. “Together, all of you represent the long and illustrious legacy of Seton Catholic Central,” said Barie. “And, should there come a day, weeks, months and even years from now, you are asked ‘Where did you go to school?’ I hope and pray that you will say, ‘I am a graduate of Seton Catholic Central, and there is no finer school in all of the North Country.’” The school’s principal, the Rev. Msgr. Robert Aucoin, also commended the friends and family of the graduates in attendance for helping the students get to their special day. “We recognize each of you has played a special role in the lives of our graduates,” Aucoin said. “You are therefore special to all of us.”

Valedictorian, salutatorian reflect on past, look toward future By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — The long road that has led the Saranac High School’s class of 2009 to graduation is one class leaders hope will bring them to many more successes in the future. One hundred forty-seven members of the graduating class entered the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Field House June 26, with heads held high as they prepared to receive diplomas marking their accomplishments. Valedictorian Brianna Boliver congratulated her fellow graduates though admitted she was struck by the fact graduation would likely be one of the last times they would all be together as a group. “Some of us will join the work force, some will enter the Armed Forces, and others will go off to college,” said Boliver. Regardless of which path each graduate chooses, said Boliver, the educations received at Saranac High School and experiences had there are ones they will carry with them for a lifetime. “We have been well prepared to meet these challenges by our parents, teachers, coaches, and also by our hard work. The work we have done at Saranac has prepared us for whatever we may choose to pursue,” said Boliver. “We are all more than ready to make our own unique trail in life and to pursue our own goals.” Boliver quoted the words of philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said, “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
“My fellow classmates, now is the time for us to go our own ways and pursue our dreams,” she said. “Try not to aim for the stereotypical expectations that others may have of us, but shoot for your own dreams and then try to achieve them. You have the knowledge and capability to accomplish many exceptional feats. Your families, teachers, friends, and community expect nothing less than your absolute best in all of your endeavors.” As they move forward, Boliver also reminded her peers they will always have support from the people they’ve developed long-lasting bonds with during their years at Saranac. “If there is ever a time in the future when we are going through a difficult time or just need to talk to somebody, there is an entire community willing to help and listen,” she said. Salutatorian Devin Klooster said the “colorful and irreplaceable” members of his graduating class are people he will never forget. In addition to the lifelong friendships and fun times he will carry with him, Klooster said he was also grateful for the education he received from the beginning of kindergarten through his final days as a member of the senior class. “Our class has definitely done some great things and when we as individuals, all 147 members of our class, came together as a whole, there have definitely been some accomplishments,” said Klooster. “We have all grown as individuals and learned the many life lessons that high school has to teach.” Whether it was learning to respect authority and those who have it, having to work with people who aren’t always easy to like, or being responsible, there
was always a lesson to learn throughout their years of schooling, said Klooster. “High school is basically like a miniversion of the real thing. And, we are all about to enter the real thing, where the tests are much harder, and the grades actually matter,” said Klooster. “It’s not always going to be the wonderfully easy life that everyone sugarcoats it to be. There will be successes and accomplishments, and at the same time failures and disappointments.” Klooster quoted the late British statesman Sir Winston Churchill, who said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” “So, if we all move past those mistakes, and more importantly learn from them, I have no doubt every one of us will make it,” said Klooster. “It's time for each of us to begin a new chapter, a new story of our own — one that will be just as, if not more memorable than the last.” During their addresses, both Boliver and Klooster paid tribute to fellow classmates Stephanie Heath, and Courtney Alexander, whose lives were lost in a car accident earlier this year, and former classmate Janos Kurunczi, who was killed in a June 2006 accident. “Each one of your children touched our lives and their memories will live on with us forever,” Boliver said, addressing the students’ families. “They would want this day to be a celebration; so let us reminisce and celebrate thirteen years of hard work and dedication.” “Janos Krunzski, Courtney Alexander, and Stephanie Heath will all be greatly missed, especially today,” said Klooster.

Graduates are taking best of high school with them By Jeremiah S. Papineau email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — What the future holds, graduating students of Plattsburgh High School don’t know. However, what they do know is that the experiences they’ve had will be something they carry with them for a lifetime. The State University of New York at Plattsburgh Field House was brimming with friends and family of Plattsburgh High School’s 2009 graduating class June 27, as 194 now former senior class students received their diplomas.
This year ’s class featured two valedictorians — Ethan Crockett and Brandon Dunham — who each delivered messages which reflected on time spent at Plattsburgh High and what the future might hold for them and their fellow classmates. Co-valedictorian Ethan Crockett said while each graduate received a diploma, the piece of paper is more than just that — it’s a symbol of for each student’s own experience at Plattsburgh High School. “What each and every one of us will take away from this school, is far beyond what
can be printed on a diploma,” Crockett said. “We learned early on that, although high school is primarily an academic institution, there was as much to gain from our experiences out of the classroom as there was from our time within them.” The lives of this year ’s graduating class are different from how they were when attending freshman orientation four years ago, said Dunham. “Each and every one of us expected only one thing upon entering high school — an education that would one day lead to our graduating and continuing on to accomplish
2009 P.A.L. FOOTBALL
greater things in the outside world,” said Dunham. “Yet, throughout those four years, we have all undergone numerous diverse high school experiences that have affected each of us in a different way.” “Without a doubt, we have all changed because of our unique journeys throughout high school, yet in that aspect we are all similar,” Dunham continued. “We are a class united in the sense that we have all changed; each of us is no longer that same kid who walked into PHS the first day of freshman year. No. We are now young men and women ready to make our own mark on the world.” Regardless of what plans each graduate has for after high school, leaving high school marks the first major step toward being recognized
as an adult, said Crockett. “As such, we must begin to accept the responsibilities our society places on adults,” he said. “For the greater part of our lives, we have been taking and benefitting from what society has to offer. Upon entering the adult world, however, it is our time to give back, so that others may benefit as we did.” “Years from now, when you look back on high school, I hope you remember at least some of the things you were taught here, but, more importantly, I hope you remember the things that made your experience unique,” Crockett added. “We have among us so many stars in academics, music, and athletics, it has been a challenge to keep up with the standards we have all set,” said salutatorian
Stephanie DeMane. “Without my classmates’ competitive spirit and drive, I would not have been motivated enough to reach the place where I now stand. While I know that my family and teachers helped me a lot throughout high school, the people of my class deserve most of the credit for making my experience here as valuable as it has been.” Senior speaker Kristen Flynn said there have been many friendships forged from experiences in high school, as well as many failures and successes. “This ceremony may bring our high school career to a close,” said Flynn, “but, more importantly, it marks the start of each achievement we will attain in our future.

Solution to last week’s puzzle
16 - CLINTON TODAY
SATURDAY July 4, 2009
Emerald Ash Borer found in New York I ’ve had several people ask me if I knew anything about the purple triangles that resemble boxkites which have been turning up in trees along Adirondack roadsides. I inquired at the DEC and was told the devices are being used to trap and monitor the spread of a rather nasty invasive beetle called the Emerald Ash Borer. Originally discovered in southeastern Michigan in 2002, the beetle has slowly migrated east and was just recently discovered in the southern part of New York State. That’s bad news for the more than 900 million ash trees in the state — a number that makes up about seven percent of all the trees here. As its name implies, the Emerald Ash Borer gnaws its way into the trunk of a tree. Damage is done by the larvae, which feed in tunnels called galleries just below the bark. The serpentine galleries disrupt water and nutrient transport, causing branches, and eventually the entire tree, to die. In the past seven years, the beetle has been linked to the destruction of more than 70 million ash trees. DEC officials are rightfully concerned at the presence of the beetle in NY, thus the purple triangles hanging in local trees. The primary method of transport is through untreated firewood, which is why the DEC has banned out-of-state firewood and restricted intrastate transport of firewood that has not been kiln dried to 50 miles. Still, that is a tough regulation to police. Attempting to stop hundreds of thousands of campers from tossing a few
sticks of firewood into their trunk before visiting the Adirondacks is a tough order to fill. Nevertheless, conservationists say it is crucial if we’d like to avoid economic and environmental impacts, the likes of which have not been seen since the Chestnut Blight or Dutch Elm Disease. “This discovery emphasizes the need to establish a national early detection network around major ports of entry so we can intercept these pests before they become established,” said Troy Weldy, director of Ecological Management for The Nature Conservancy. “It is also important for citizens to understand that these pests are easily transported in firewood. We ask everyone to do their part by only burning wood close to where they buy it." DEC Commissioner Pete Grannis had similar sentiments. “This is yet another wake-up call for all New Yorkers that invasive species pose a grave threat to the health of our natural resources and ecosystems, and ultimately, our economy. Tough but practical measures, such as quarantines, firewood regulations, public education and other regulatory actions will continue to be needed if we are to limit the damage from EAB and other invasives.”
What to look for Adult beetles leave distinctive D-shaped exit holes in the outer bark of the branches and the trunk. Other signs of infection include tree canopy dieback, yellowing, extensive sprouting from the roots and trunk (called "epicormic shoots") and browning of leaves. Infested trees may also exhibit woodpecker damage from larvae extraction. Report suspected damage to the state by calling 1-866-640-0652.
The picture above shows damage caused to an ash tree by the Emerald Ash Borer, a non-native beetle that has found its way to New York State. Conservation officials fear the beetle, shown in the picture inset, could devestate a part of the state’s 900 million ash trees. The Emerald Ash Borer has metallic green wing covers and a coppery red or purple abdomen; it is small enough to fit easily on a penny.

Summer is a time for swimming, boating and enjoying the heat.
It is important to follow some simple safety rules to ensure everyone has a safe and happy summer Sun Safety - Be sure kids are properly protected from the sun. Items such as sunblock, hats and sunglasses can help protect the skin. It is good to limit exposure to the sun during the middle of the day. Also, be sure kids drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Water Safety - Whether at the pool or the beach. It is important to follow some basic water safety rules. Kids should always swim with a partner, and have an adult nearby. Remind your children to walk (not run) around the pool as the cement may be slippery. Also, an adult should check to make sure the water is deep enough before kids are allowed to dive. There are probably rules posted at public pools. It is a good idea to go over these. Families can work together to create and post rules at their home pool. Bike, Roller Blade, & Scooter Safety - Kids should always wear a helmet. This is a law in many areas. Check with your local police department for specific laws in your community. Kneepads and elbow pads are also useful for softening the blow in case of falls. Camping Safety - Campfires are great, but it is important to know the safety procedures before starting a fire. An adult should always start the campfire and be present while it is lit. A lot of planning goes into a safe camp site. Families should have a plan of what to do if the get separated.
