LAKE PLACID Ñ The Lake Placid Blues and Heritage Festival is coming to town from June 20-22. In its inaugural year, the village will sway and rock to the sounds of more than 20 blues bands from throughout the northeast performing in 10 different local venues. Garrick Smith, owner and operator of the Northwoods Inn, is one of the organizers of the festival. Ò One of our goals was to create a community event that would expand summer by one week,Ó Smith said, noting the season didnÕ t traditionally kick off until the arrival of the regionÕ s horse shows. About two years ago, he developed a blues club called Delta Blue, formerly the Northern Exposure restaurant. Ò WeÕ ve amassed a bullpen of extraordinary blues talent,Ó Smith said of those who played at Delta Blue, adding over a dozen Blues Hall of Famers had performed at the club. Ò WeÕ ve gotten to the point that weÕ re saying Ô noÕ a lot more often than weÕ re saying Ô yesÕ to people who ask to perform.Ó Local entertainment includes bands like Spring Street, Lucid, The Harbingers, the Back Porch Society, Sven Curth and friends, Big Slyde and Fade to Blues. Regional and national acts include The Roxy Perry Blues Band, George Boone, Rhett Tyler and Early Warning, George Kilby Jr. with special guest Barbecue Bob, Murali Coryell and Jerry Dugger.

Going door to door with candidate Matt Doheny By Pete DeMola
firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE PLACID Ñ The ding-ding-ding of the seat belt chime never flicked off because Matt Doheny, a Republican candidate for Congress, was never in the car long enough to buckle back up. The routine went like this: Armed with a list of registered Republican voters, a GPS unit and a full tank of gas, DohenyÕ s wheelman would zero in on a name and address. The car would roll to a stop and the candidate would leap out. It was 84 degrees on Monday, June 2, the hottest day of the year so far, and the black flies were out. But Doheny, a 43-year-old investment banker from Watertown, was in his prime. ÒT his how itÕ s done,Ó he said. ÒN ow letÕ s go knock on some doors.Ó The car rolled to a stop. Doheny jumped out and a reporter followed. ÒI Õ m Matt Doheny and IÕ m running for Congress,Ó he told the young woman who answered the door. ÒI Õ m right here on your doorstep if you have any questions.Ó She smiled, took the campaign literature and apologized: “I’m just the caretaker,” she shrugged. “That’s fine,” said Doheny. “Have a great day.” There are 170,000 registered Republicans spread throughout 194 towns and villages in New YorkÕ s 21st Congressional District and Doheny estimates that he was knocked on 1,000 doors so far in about 40 of them. ÒI n a district this size, sometimes we have to use this car,Ó he said, almost as an apology. ÒT his is when campaigning in more walkable villages becomes more preferable.Ó A bicyclist pedaled by. ÒT he creation of a bike trail was something that was discussed at the Adirondack Associations of Towns and Villages this morning,Ó said Doheny, referring to the meeting he attended earlier that morning of local officials from around the North Country. “It could be modeled after Yellowstone and would be a great way to get people here, a circuit from Saranac Lake to Star Lake, Long Lake, Old Forge and then back around again.Ó The car slowed. ÒWh at are we looking at?Ó Doheny asked the driver, who was scanning the list of voters. It stopped and Doheny got out, approached a house, paused, knocked and waited for a reply. ÒB eautiful landscaping,Ó h e commented. The door opened. ÒT his is beautiful landscaping,Ó he repeated before introducing himself. The woman brightened, confirmed she was a Republican, and the two fell into a discussion of shared acquaintances before shaking hands and parting ways.

“People just want common sense,” Doheny said. “That was fairly typical of what happens on the trail Ñ people are impressed when you knock on their door and you just talk about what’s important to them and the issues.Ó ÒWh at are we looking at?Ó An address was given and Doheny, who was dressed in a blue checkered shirt and cowboy boots, hopped out. ÒWh ereÕ s Number 15?Ó he asked, studying the multi-unit apartment complex. A reporter motioned upwards and Doheny climbed a set of rickety wooden steps. He knocked, a door opened and a man peered out. ÒI Õ m Matt Doheny and IÕ m running for Congress,Ó he told the man. ÒI Õ m right here on your doorstep if you have any questions.Ó ÒI Õ ve been a registered Republican for a lot of years,Ó said the man. ÒT hatÕ s great!Ó s aid Doheny. ÒC an I count on your vote?Ó The man nodded and retreated back into the darkness. ÒY ouÕ re a young guy,Ó Doheny said to a reporter. ÒT he key to attracting and keeping smart people like you here is jobs. We have great local talent and terrific people who want to live here in the North Country.Ó Doheny said the region needs to create opportunity sets and capitalize from their comparative advantages, which in the case of Lake Placid, would be tourism and athletics training. ORDA is one of the most important drivers of economic development in the region, he said. But it has been ignored by the federal government since 2006. From 1997-2003, according to a written statement provided by his campaign, ORDA received approximately $12 million in federal capital grants.
A 2006 study prepared by SUNY PlattsburghÕ s Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management Program indicates ORDA contributes over $320 million in economic impact to the region and thousands of direct and indirect jobs. “These jobs have an interest for a lot of people,” he said. “Now letÕ s get them here.Ó Back on the trail, the vehicle downshifted and entered a thin road bursting with untamed summer foliage. ÒL ake Placid is a lot bigger than many people realize,Ó said the candidate. The car stopped in front of a modest wooden house carved into the hillside. Doheny knocked and a man answered the door. ÒI Õ m Matt Doheny and IÕ m running for Congress,Ó h e said. ÒW eÕ ve seen you on the news,Ó said the man, whose name was Gary Hodgson, aged 70. ÒI tÕ s amazing what little people know about whatÕ s going on in the world.Ó Hodgson began discussing the Council of Foreign Relations, the non-partisan think tank that specializes in foreign policy, and what he perceives as a mission drift. “Inflation is such a problem,” he said. “This is just simple economics.Ó ÒI f elected, IÕ d like to oversee an audit on the federal reserve,Ó said Doheny. “Thank you!” cried Hodgson. “You can’t just print more money and then tax people more. You don’t need to be a wizard to figure that out.Ó The two fell into a deep conversation: ÒT his is called the debasement of currency,Ó ex plained Doheny. The man nodded. ÒN ineteen-thirteen was a bad year for America,Ó said Hodgson. ÒT hat was when the Federal Reserve was created and when the Federal Income Tax was passed through.Ó The two talked economic policy for several minutes. The man had strong libertarian principles and frequently referred to the gold standard. Doheny listened intently. “Something just needs to be done to get this country back on track,Ó H odgson concluded. “The federal government is just continuing on with these inflationary policies,Ó s aid Doheny. The two fell into a silence. ÒC an I count on your vote?Ó as ked Doheny ÒY ou got it!Ó h e said. ÒA nd IÕ ll tell my wife, too.Ó ÒI wish I could have had a chance to meet her,Ó said the candidate. The two shook hands and Hodgson went back inside. Doheny climbed back into the vehicle, which was purring in the driveway. He turned around in his seat and looked at a reporter: ÒT his is how weÕ re going to win.Ó The seat belt chime was dinging. But it didnÕ t matter Ñ more doors were waiting. And the primary is only three weeks away.
Piano concert to offer Chopin with a side of coleslaw By Pete DeMola
email@example.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Piano By Nature is a group of fine arts aficionados that bills itself as a non-profit organization aiming to bring professional and thought-provoking musical performances to the North Country. Past affairs have brought esteemed chamber music ensembles to the Hand House in Elizabethtown, their main stomping ground. Performances walk a delicate line between pinky-raised solo recitals and more progressive sets that highlight unusual instrumental combinations, like last monthÕ s accordion and piano duo that likely had the houseÕ s namesakes, a gaggle of dourlooking lawyers, jitterbugging in their graves. Ò These are not the average classical music concerts,Ó said Rose Chancler, the organizationÕ s founder. Ò WhatÕ s particularly great about this is that itÕ s a mix of traditional and classical Ñ youÕ re going from one to the next, which further enhances the idea that music is music.Ó TheyÕ re holding a fundraiser June 14. The featured artist at the event is Daniel Linder, a Westport native who is a candidate for the M.M. in piano performance at the

Suicide prevention event slated in Lake Placid By Jon Hochschartner email@example.com
LAKE PLACID Ñ Local members of the Capital Region of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention are holding the North Country Walk Kick Off June 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the upstairs of the Lake Placid Beach House. This is open to anyone who would like more information on the North Country Out of the Darkness walk which will be held Oct. 5. Linda Wallace, an organizer of the event, said her experience with suicide motivated her participation. Ò For me, itÕ s because of personal acquaintances who have died by suicide and especially a young girl in high school,Ó Wallace
said. Ò It is very prevalent in the North Country. ItÕ s important to people to talk about it and understand how to help people who may be considering suicide.Ó Those interested in walking, volunteering with the walk, becoming a sponsor or just hearing more about suicide prevention are invited to come. Ò WeÕ re going to be explaining to people how to fund raise, how easy it is to fund raise and to form a team,Ó Wallace said. Ò NowÕ s the time to start fund-raising. [The event is] also for people who are interested in volunteering at the walk.Ó Wallace said she was really hoping local young people would come to the event. Ò We really would like to get some young people, some students, to participate and form teams so they can raise the awareness amongst their peers,Ó Wallace said. Ò I think
for young people sometimes they donÕ t recognize the signs of someone who is contemplating suicide.Ó The event will include food, drinks, music, door prizes and give aways. An RSVP would be appreciated. To do so, please phone or text to 518-791-1544 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and reference Ò Lake Placid Kick Off.Ó According to the American Foundation for Suicide PreventionÕ s website, the organization is Ò the nationÕ s leading organization bringing together people across communities and backgrounds to understand and prevent suicide and to help heal the pain it causes. Individuals, families and communities who have been personally touched by suicide are the moving force behind everything we do.Ó
excited, particularly with the turnout. These folks are gate keepers who are in the home and see these cases. And I think sometimes they come away frustrated, not knowing who they can turn to.Ó Bashaw said that she learned something despite being one of the presenters. Ò I got a better understanding of how animal cruelty is a red flag for other issues in the home and how what we see and document can help the [District Attorney] prosecute cases,Ó she said. Other presenters included Heather Haskins, program director for the Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, and Linda Jackson, supervisor of Essex County Child Protective Services. Haskins discussed the intersection of animal cruelty and domestic violence. Ò Often when there is violence in the home, the abuser will target more than one victim,Ó she said. Ò Domestic violence is a pattern of power and control. ThatÕ s at the root. And
generally animals are vulnerable beings.Ó Haskins, who gave signs of animal abuse for first responders to look for, thought the presentation went well. Ò People asked for follow-ups and more information,Ó she said. Ò I referred a few of them to coworkers here who do specific training.” Jackson discussed the effects of domestic violence, and her organizationÕ s standards, among other things. Ò There were some questions on why we do things the way we do, particularly in regard to not removing children from home when we do receive reports of abuse and neglect,Ó Jackson said, explaining that they were only allowed to extricate children when the organization could prove they were in immediate danger of serious harm. She believed the training was important. Ò I think abuse, neglect and particularly domestic violence are rampant in our society now and the effects of that are long lasting.Ó
Abuse training held in Lewis for first responders By Jon Hochschartner email@example.com
LEWIS — A comprehensive speed training for first responders on the correlation between domestic violence, elder abuse, child abuse and animal abuse was held on May 28 at the Public Safety Building in Lewis. Forty-one first responders, including EMS, police and fire department members, attended alongside community agencies like Essex County ChildrenÕ s Services, the North Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Westport Mental Health Association. Patty Bashaw, director of Essex’s Office for the Aging and an Emergency Medical Services Coordinator, spoke on the signs and symptoms of elder abuse. “Everyone found it really beneficial,” she said. “I was really
Saranac Lake’s Trudeau Institute makes breakthrough
SARANAC LAKE Ñ Scientists from the laboratory of Trudeau Institute faculty member Marcia Blackman have exploited a mouse viral infection model to increase understanding of the important interaction between types of immune T cells to control infection and the onset of malignancy. Their findings are reported in the Journal of Virology, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology and one of the leading sources for the latest in microbiology research. The paper, Ò Promotion of a subdominant CD8 T cell response during murine herpesvirus-68 infection in the absence of CD4 T cell help,Ó was authored by Michael L. Freeman, Alan D. Roberts, Claire E. Burkum, David L. Woodland and Marcia A. Blackman. Human gamma-herpesviruses, such as Epstein Barr virus (EBV) and KaposiÕ s sarcomaassociated herpesvirus (KSHV), are signficant human pathogens widely disseminated in the population and they can cause cancer in people with weak immunity. For example, acquired
Champlain Valley Seniors From page 1
immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients with impaired immunity have an increased incidence of gamma-herpesvirus-associated tumors. Two types of T cells control viral infection and tumor development: CD4 T cells and CD8 T cells, the latter of which recognize a variety of virus-specific markers on virally-infected cells and mediate direct elimination of the cells, according to a defined hierarchy of specificities that they recognize. The contribution of CD4 T cells to immune control of viruses is less well understood, although in their absence, such as in AIDS patients, the ability to control the virus and prevent the development of tumors is impaired. The Blackman laboratory used an experimental mouse-gamma-herpesvirus-infection model to study how the absence of CD4 T cells affects the ability of the immune system to control the viruses. It showed that the absence of CD4 T cells had a direct effect on the hierarchy of virus- specific CD8 T cells. An additional un-
expected consequence was that CD8 T cells of different specificities had opposite functional outcomes when CD4 T cells were absent. Thus, CD4 and CD8 T cells interact in unanticipated ways for effective viral control. The researchersÕ overall goal is to understand mechanisms of immune control of the gammaherpesviruses by CD4 and CD8 T cells in order to develop therapeutic interventions. The Trudeau Institute is a nonprofit biomedical research center founded in 1884 by Dr. E.L.
Trudeau. The InstituteÕ s fundamental research on immunity fosters the development of vaccines, treatments and cures for many life-threatening diseases, including cancer, tuberculosis and leading sources for the latest in microbiology research influenza. The Institute is supported by federal and state grants and contributions from individuals, private foundations and corporations.

were widened, walls replaced, floors remodeled, an ice cream parlor and wine bar were installed — a sense of purposeful enthusiasm hung in the air, like at an Eisenhower-era factory. The elevator dinged and an elderly man with blue suspenders stopped in mid-shuffle and beamed: Ò ItÕ s so good to see you, Eli. I canÕ t tell you enough how much I love being here.Ó Carman Santor was in a great mood. “It’s just wonderful,” he said. “Let me know what I can do to spread the word.” Three residents, including a woman who only identified herself as Norma, actually attended what was once known as Willsboro Central School. Class of 1940, she said. Or maybe it was Ô 39. Ò I donÕ t remember much,Ó she said from her tidy apartment, which was once a classroom. Ò Just the principal’s office.” Ò But you probably didnÕ t get sent there often,Ó laughed Schwartzberg. Ò No, I did not,Ó she said. Not too far from Norma’s flat was the facility’s Memory Wing. Each aspect, from the doors on hair-trigger alarms to the circular hallways engineered to diffuse tension, was designed for those in the late stages of dementia, said Schwartzberg. “The community and quality of care have had a significant impact on families throughout the North Country,Ó he said in between a volley of how-ya-doins, hellos and good-to-see-yous to each resident. Ò It is not uncommon for a caregiver to walk in and start crying when they see that there is a solution and a beautiful community in the Adirondacks that can take care of their loved ones needs.Ó The facility, which employs four nurses and 30 others who provide round-the-clock care, will celebrate their first anniversary on Thursday, June 12. Guest speakers include Linda Manzo, the ADK Program Manager for the AlzheimerÕ s Association of Northeastern New York, and Patty Bashaw, Director of the Essex County Office of the Aging. Ò As the population grows older, weÕ re seeing cases of dementia more often,Ó said Bashaw. Ò It takes a tremendous toll on caregivers.Ó Ò I am really proud of our staff and I can honestly say that after a year, every one of our staff works here because they care about other people,Ó said Schwartzberg. Ò This is a place that people choose to live to enhance the quality of their golden years, not a place that people are forced to live.Ó

Resource officers: A price the Why would anyone want these jobs? county and schools can’t afford
ssex County Sheriff Richard Cutting is making the push yet again to re-visit the notion of deputies patrolling the halls of area schools with the designation ‘resource officer.’ Following a slew of tragic incidents of school violence Ñ from Sandy Hook to Alton, IL Ñ many districts and municipalities have been quick to make the emotional decision to place full-time law enforcement personnel in the hallways of their buildings. While Essex County schools have been fortunate thus far, we are not blind enough to think that a tragedy is impossible in our own backyard. However, is a $72,000 county or district-funded price tag the answer to maintaining a safe educational environments for our youth? In our opinion, the answer is no. The Essex County Board of Supervisors Ways and Means Committee voted 1458 to 1463 in a weighted vote this week to allow Sheriff Cutting to apply for a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant that would pay up to 75 percent of the salary and benefits for four new resource officers for area schools. The remaining 25 percent of the funding would ultimately be the responsibility of the county. At a time when the county board has struggled to put a lid on spending, how can an unallocated $72,000 be a feasible request? In our opinion, it simply is not. From 1999 to 2003, resource officers patrolled the halls of schools in Ticonderoga, Moriah, Keene, Crown Point, Schroon Lake, Minerva, Newcomb, Westport and Willsboro. CuttingÕ s request comes with scant statistical information from the past justifying the need for these officers. It is our opinion that if resource officers are seen as a must-have by the school districts, it should be a district-by-district decision and it should be paid for from their own monetary resources. With district budgets barely passing in some places it seems like a reach, a far reach. The argument can be made that with a 13-deputy department, there is no reason deputies canÕ t make stops into these districts as part of their regular routine and work day, without the need for more officers, more hours and more funding. The schools in our communities have maintained a manageable level of safety in coordinating with local law enforcement about safe practices. In Ticonderoga, a multi-unit drill was conducted earlier in the year to educate law enforcement, first responders, teachers and students alike to respond to internal and external threats. Efforts like those listed above would be beneficial to all districts throughout the county, but asking schools or taxpayers to pick up a sizable tab is not. Student and child safety is always at the forefront of conversation when tragedies like the one in Sandy Hook occur but we can not simply continue to write checks that we have a hard time cashing. While a sum of this amount may seem like a small price to pay to deter possible criminal acts, the story will be exceedingly different in the years to come when budgetary constraints become increasingly more dire. Schools have already implemented a number of safety precautions, including zero tolerance policies, locking doors and taking any and all threats in a more serious manner. The coordination with local law enforcement already serves as a deterrent to crime Ñ a full-time, taxpayer funded bouncer is simply not a safety net we can afford. Ñ

From the Editor
40 Days for Life To the Valley News: As Campaign Director and Outreach Coordinator for 40 Days for Life: Plattsburgh, we would like to thank the prayer volunteers who have prayed for the end of abortion during the Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign located at Planned Parenthood of the North Country, NY. Your prayerful presence makes a difference! Many women reject abortion because of the sidewalk counselors who provide information about positive options. After talking with the counselors, many women no longer feel afraid or pressured to abort. We believe the prayers of everyone united help give these woman the courage they need to say yes to life. Just this spring, 728 babies have been spared from abortion and their mothers spared from a lifetime of regret and loss. Women in crisis pregnancies have a right to bring their child into the world by accessing life saving resources in our area: Plattsburgh Pregnancy Center, Birthright, Gabriel Project, Catholic Charities and Care Net. Abortion after care programs are also available in the area: Project Rachel, Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More Awareness. There is help available, you are not alone. We look forward to leading the Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign. Please check back for more information: 40daysforlife. com/plattsburgh Nancy Belzile, Willsboro Nancy Monette, Plattsburgh
Non-proﬁts play a large role To the Valley News: The Adirondack region’s nonprofit organizations deliver services that help make this region the vibrant place that it is, and they play a critical role in supporting a healthy, diverse economy. For most of our history, Adirondack Foundation has been holding seminars to help our nonprofits strengthen leadership, seize opportunities, and overcome the many challenges they
face. On May 9, Adirondack Foundation and the Essex Community Fund teamed up to host a seminar, “Nonprofit Marketing on a Tight Budget & Building a Board That Works,Ó at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall. Led by Andy Robinson, a nationally-recognized nonprofit trainer, the seminarÕ s 40-plus participants received valuable marketing advice and learned how to build a more productive and engaged board. Adirondack Foundation thanks the nonprofit organizations that attended the seminar—your participation reinforces our belief that nonprofits across the region benefit from this type of capacity building. Special thanks go to our co-host, the Essex Community Fund; our friends at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall, who provided a perfect setting; and Susan Smith of Flying Pancakes Catering. We also thank the volunteer board members who participated—you help give our nonprofits structure, identify and momentum, and your contribution is, in many ways, priceless. For more information about nonprofit and community services at Adirondack Foundation, please visit www.generousact.org. Cali Brooks, Executive Director, Adirondack Foundation
Clarity needed To the Valley News:
Clarity is needed regarding ElizabethtownÕ s sidewalk situation. That and truth. A town Ò balance sheetÒ is simply a monthly snapshot of a particular fund, such as the General Fund or Highway Fund. The Sidewalk District balance sheet is comprised of assets, liabilities, and equity, which is cash, debt, and fund balance. Ex-Supervisor Bartley said the Sidewalk balance sheet showed $47,000 in early 2014 and declared it sufficient for projects. However, the current years maintenance costs must be paid from this fund. ThatÕ s plowing, sanding, salt, fuel, employees (pay & taxes ), perhaps equipment, and any unforeseen expense. It’s difficult to know how much will be needed, or how much will be left. Bartley stated the highway dept. was too busy during 20122013 to do sidewalk replacement, but they donÕ t do that type of work. ItÕ s contracted out to private companies via a bidding process and itÔ s the responsibility of the Supervisor and the Board, not the highway dept.
Bartley states that the Sidewalk tax for 2013 was $19,980, but the tax warrant shows it was $20,850. The $19,980 is the appropriation ( budget amount ) for 2014. She then reduced the 2014 tax to $2,980, to pay for a $19,980 appropriation. Bartley claims the town board decided this, but I donÕ t recall any such discussion. Sidewalk replacement is expensive and borrowing for it will make it more expensive, so the taxpayer cost is now higher. Reducing the Sidewalk tax by 86 percent and therefore depleting fund balance by $17,870 was a mistake. A mistake the new board must now deal with. Unfortunately thereÕ s worse. For example, the illegal swap of a town road, which became BartleyÕ s private driveway, on Dec. 27, 2013, in a 9:30 AM meeting. It violated NYS Conflict of Interest Law. Ken Fenimore, Elizabethtown
