Quilting catching on in the Point ROUSES POINT — Fibre Junction owners Jennifer Taffner and Carole Prevost-Meier have found a unique way to learn about history. The quilt shop, which opened in May 2009, has already been through one Block of the Month — where quilters literally complete one block a month, completing a full quilt by the end of the year. Prevost-Meier explained they first began the program when they first opened, completing Women of Influence, with each block representing a woman who served an important role in history, including Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony. The shop is now looking to begin two more Block of the Month quilts this month, including Civil War Chronicles to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the war, and the Farmer ’s Wife sample. “Each block has the history to it,” explained Prevost-Meier of the Civil War Chronicles. “What they’re doing is basically

researching the women that were the wives of key people.” As for the Farmer ’s Wife, the quilt will be based on a contest held by the popular magazine. “Basically this was a contest back in 1922 put out by the Farmer ’s Wife Magazine, and in a nutshell, they wanted women to write in and tell why they think their daughter should or should not marry a farmer,” Prevost-Meier explained, adding each square of the quilt represents some of the letters written into the magazine. Those interested in taking part in the Block of the Month program can either have the pattern and fabrics shipped to them, or can be picked up at the store, located at 69 Lake St. Prevost-Meier said the shop also offers other quilting clubs. “We also do a club which we call Jo’s Little Women’s Club,” she said. “We meet once a month and I’ve got six women that come in and we just talk about history, we make a project a month, and we show off our project and then we have dessert and coffee and tea.” NY Times Says Are

she explained. “If you do traditional applique, you have to turn the edges under so the raw edges don’t show. But with wool, it’s felted wool so it doesn’t unravel. So, it’s easy.” Both Forey and Prevost-Meier agreed there is wide-range of difficulty when it comes to quilting. “There’s different variations of how hard it is,” said Forey. “You can make a really easy quilt or an easy little table topper, or you can make it really complicated.” For more information about the various clubs offered at Fibre Junction, call the store at 297-9797.

Prevost-Meier plans to begin club 10 in a couple months. She is also looking to start a club for those just beginning quilting. “It’s pretty much a nine-part series. We meet every two weeks,” she said. “Basically every two weeks we work on a technique. What’s good about that is you don’t really have to make a quilt. You can use a whole bunch of fabrics that you have left over. Because it’s really about piecing.” The shop is also bringing in long-time quilter Diane Forey of Rouses Point to begin teaching how to quilt with wool, which Forey actually finds to be easier. “You don’t have to turn the edges under,”

Heart transplant recipient to speak at Go Red for Women By Jeremiah S. Papineau

Heart transplant recipient Ginger Zimmerman will share her story at the annual Go Red for Women Dinner Wednesday, Jan. 19. Photo provided

PLATTSBURGH — Ginger Zimmerman’s life was forever changed with three words — permanently dilated cardiomyopathy. The Rochester woman was diagnosed with the condition in which her heart became weakened and enlarged, leaving it unable to pump blood efficiently. When she visited a doctor with her symptoms, she learned the mysterious condition slowly robbing her of her energy and her health was a very serious one. It left her heart functioning at barely 15 percent of what the average heart does. “[The doctor] believed a virus destroyed my heart muscles over the last few years and I suffered the most damage in that last year and a half,” said Zimmerman. “He told me, ‘I can’t even believe you’re sitting here.” Given the length of time she had likely

suffered from her condition, Zimmerman said her doctor told her she was lucky to be alive. “With not being on any medications, anything could have killed me,” said Zimmerman. “I could have been killed by too much salt or too much potassium — anything. It was a miracle I was sitting there.” The only option facing Zimmerman at the time was a heart transplant, which she eventually underwent and is the reason she’s able to share her story today about having regular examinations to catch conditions like hers early. “I think everyone’s able to relate to my story whether I could be your daughter, your sister, your mother, your friend. It can connect with everyone,” she said. The North Country will get the chance to hear Zimmerman’s story first-hand when she is the featured speaker at the annual Go Red for Women Dinner Wednesday, Jan. 19,

Weight loss and watching what you eat E

xercise is only part of the equation of an effective weight loss plan. What you are putting into your body plays an even bigger role. You can not out train a bad diet. If you are not eating right, not only can it have a negative effect on your health, you will fail at your weight loss goals. No one wants to hear that, but it’s the truth. Most people have no idea how much they are actually consuming or how many calories your body actually needs. Using a food log is an effective tool to help manage your weight. Yes it sounds tedious and it does require a small amount of time to do, but if your goal is to lose weight, I highly recommend trying it. Nine out of 10 Americans underestimate how many calories they eat in a day. By using a food journal, you will be able to see just how many calories you are consuming. It has been shown those who use food logging as a weight loss tool lose twice as much weight as those who do not. Keeping a food log holds you accountable for what you are eating and you may think twice about downing that brownie if you have to write it down. Even if you only keep a log for a couple of weeks, you can get an idea of what you are eating and what can be changed to get you on

track. I recommend keeping a log with you through out the day, this way you have it handy at all times. If you eat something write it down, along with the amount. At the end of the day you can record it in an on-line journal like (a free on-line calorie tracking tool). You will be able to see everything from how many calories you’re eating, to meeting your recommended daily allowance of certain nutrients. It is really a great tool I use myself and with many of my clients. Food logging gets easier and easier the longer you keep up with it. It really takes less than a few minutes a day, and can have a huge impact on your health and weight loss goals. So if your goal for the year is weight loss, give it a try, it may be just what you need to kick start your weight loss or bust you out of a plateau.

Two educational sessions will also be held during the evening — cardiothoracic surgeon Anne Cahill from CVPH Medical Center will present one and Brian Osbourne of An Shen Acupuncture will present the other. Lauren Maloney of FOX44 will be the hostess of the dinner program. Seating is still available for the event, with individuals tickets $50 and tables of 10 able to be reserved for $500.

Bridal, Fashion expo to help Make-A-Wish PLATTSBURGH — The annual Plattsburgh Bridal and Fashion Expo will be held this Sunday, Jan. 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the West Side Ballroom, 253 New York Road. The event, sponsored by Laura’s Bridal & College Formals, will feature displays by local wedding professionals and include a runway fashion show. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeast New York. “Brides could, in theory, plan their wedding in one day,” said Lonnie Cross, owner of Laura’s Bridal & College Formals. “Plus, they are supporting a great cause.” Several prizes will be given away, including $1,000 cash and a $1,000 Perrywinkle’s gift gard. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Laura’s Bridal, 494 State Route 3, for $8 or $10 at the door. For more information, call 563-8897.

So, who’s smarter? One study, conducted by the University of Michigan, has demonstrated that people learn better after walking in the woods than after walking on a city street, since our working memory is often over-taxed in the city. Working memory is our “ability to actively hold information in the mind needed to do complex tasks such as reasoning, comprehension and learning.” The frenetic pace of city life, with screeching tires, blaring horns and crowded sidewalks serves to deplete our working memory, which can limit our ability to reason. According to researchers, “In the country, our senses kind of recalibrate—you notice sounds, like the crickets chirping; you hear the river, sense the smells, you become more connected to the physical environment, the earth, rather than the artificial environment…. and there’s a real mental freedom in knowing no one or nothing can interrupt you.” The human mind needs nature, and even a little bit can be a big help. In the country, our senses change and there are measurable psychological and physiological affects. Scientists have discovered that being among plants produces “lower concentrations of cortisol, lower pulse rate, and lower blood pressure,” among other health benefits. Reduction of stress makes it easier to learn, improves memory and increases comprehension. Studies have indicated that students performed at higher levels on standardized tests when the exams were administered in a classroom that featured natural lighting, open windows and green space, rather than in a classroom with artificial light and no natural surroundings.

urrently, the benefits of exposure to natural surroundings are at the center of numerous scientific studies, and the majority of the research indicates that forested hills, stillwater lakes and raging rivers are much better for the human mind, than towering buildings and long strips malls of urbanite. Growing evidence may finally provide an answer to the age-old question, “Are country folk really smarter than city folk?” It is a fact that our wild lands, free-flowing rivers and mountains rank among the region’s greatest economic assets. If the Adirondacks were covered by a gigantic paved parking lot, and surrounded by towering towers of concrete, the area would lose its appeal. The reason visitors are willing to spend five or six hours traveling to the Adirondacks is to escape, to ‘vacate’ their typical surroundings. They come to our region to relax, recharge and recreate while seeking opportunities for the renewal of mind, body and soul. It’s nothing new. They’ve been coming this way for years, with the main charge beginning shortly after the Civil War. Fortunately, for our local economy, there appears to be very little let up, they just keep coming. It makes me wonder, do city folk know something that we don’t? What is it that keeps drawing them back? What do they find here that is so enticing? Am I missing something? Current research may soon provide answers to these perplexing questions. In our increasingly technological society, studies indicate that forests, and other comparable natural surroundings allow us to reconnect to the natural world and to ourselves. We are, after all, natural beings and such important processes as rejuvenation and restoration are best accomplished in natural surroundings. In the woods or on the waters, we have an opportunity to naturally recharge and refresh the innate nature of our being. According to the studies, exposure to plants and trees provides positive benefits to our health. The human mind requires natural experiences, and even a few moments outdoors can provide opportunities that captivate our attention, whether watching the wind in the trees, a bird on the breeze or a raging river flow. Labeled, Attention Restorative Theory, the concept claims that when walking in the woods, a person typically utilizes “involuntary attention” when observing birds, sunsets or waterfalls. Such opportunities provide positive restorative factors. They are relaxing because they do not trigger the negative emotional responses that often result from exposure to the sirens or honking horns of an urban environment. Involuntary attention does not require focused concentration, and it does not tax our brain. Rather, it relaxes it. In the city, a person is always on the alert for threats, dodging traffic, avoiding pedestrians on the sidewalk, or expending excess concentration in an attempt to dim the din of urbanity. In order to accomplish this, a person must remain focused on a variety of tasks, constantly concentrating their “direct attention” on a wide range of stimuli. When we are constantly focused, our prefrontal cortex is always in overdrive, and we end up not being as good at

things that require our “direct attention,” such as learning at school or solving problems or resolving conflicts. In effect, urban environments diminish our ability to concentrate, which can affect memory and reasoning. Recreation means to re-create, to renew or refresh one’s body, mind or soul. Research has proven that even a short walk in a forest can have restorative effects. When in a forest, surrounded by trees and foliage, we experience the calming and renewing effects of the environment around us. In essence, we are replenishing our reserves, soaking up energy from the earth. Studies indicate that meaningful outdoor activity is essential to human happiness and longevity. The time we take to re-create correlates with better health and increased productivity. Human beings require restorative natural surroundings, no less than other living creatures.

All about operating systems Senior bullying on the rise


perating Systems is the course I spend the most time preparing for each year. The course objectives remain stable, but the software often changes. A decade ago I focused entirely on Microsoft products. Students learned the basics of Windows 98, NT, and 2000 while exploring the graphical user interface. We also covered the command line interface, system tools, system maintenance procedures, and how to fix problems. Now the focus is only partly on Windows as we cover XP, Vista and Windows 7. The growing use of open-source Linux in the IT world caused a recommendation from our advisory committee to incorporate Linux into the OS course. So around 2003, I started to spend a few weeks each semester covering one Linux distribution. The initial choice was Red Hat Linux which has transformed into a version called Fedora Core. Yesterday I downloaded Fedora Core 14 in preparation for the spring semester. Students will install Fedora, learn to use the graphical and command line interfaces, and become familiar with the OS. I believe if students become familiar with one Linux

distribution they can go on and learn other distributions. It’s no different than learning how to drive on a Chevy and then driving a Ford; the controls may be different but the big picture remains the same. Learning virtual machine operation was long considered a more advanced IT topic but now it’s a critical skill for new technicians. About three years ago I beBy Ron Poland gan covering software and hardware virtual machines. Students learned the differences between the two types while setting up a hardware machine using VMware’s ESXi. The coming semester will be the first with Windows 7 installed on the lab computers. Along with exposure to the new OS, students will create and operate several virtual machines using a software virtual machine. Ron Poland is a professor in the Computer Information Systems AAS program at Clinton Community College. Poland is certified in computer repair and networking by the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). He is also a Cisco certified network assistant.

sons seniors join senior centers and senior housing facilities in the first place. With the baby boomers aging, and the retirement community increasing, these issues will probably become more common. Some say bullying is just a normal part of communal living and human behavior, but the harm that can come from bullying is huge, and needs to be addressed. One way to curtail bullying is for senior agencies to have, and enforce, a code of conduct that states all members will be treated with consideration, respect and recognition of their dignity. There needs to be clear expectations about what kind of behavior is appropriate, and to have an all around culture where bullying is unacceptable.

e’ve all heard about bullying before. Typically we think of bullying as a children’s issue. Anyone who has gone to school knows how mean some kids can be. There is a new bully on the block however, and it’s not a child, it’s a senior. Senior bullying is apparently on the rise in senior housing and senior centers across the nation. There are cliques of seniors who exclude, shun, and taunt other seniors who are not part of “their” group. These bullies tell other seniors where they can and cannot sit, and what activities they can and cannot participate in. These altercations rarely become physical; however there is a real concern that seniors who are on the receiving end of bullying may isolate themselves by no longer attending a senior center, or not participating in the activities at their senior housing facility.

Good giving back through United Way As a student coming out of college I wanted to help people. I took on an internship at the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. and was amazed by the complexity of the problems that people were facing in my own community. Everyday was a new challenge trying to help the community and its citizens. As naive as I was I thought I could solve every issue and answer every question. The United Way provides an opportunity for people like me to help. The money that is donated to the United Way is distributed to 36 partner agencies in three counties that cover all walks of life. Each agency uses the money for a specific purpose which is thoroughly reviewed on a yearly basis. This dynamic that is the United Way allows me to help the young, old, and middle aged community members with a money donation. The United Way does not just throw money at problems. The programs funded are there to help fallen community members get back on their feet. The United Way has given me the opportunity to be naive again. With a donation I can help people from all walks of life and with all kinds of issues. So can you, please donate to the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc Larry Pickreign II Port Kent

Community urged to do its part Our free society has many perks and benefits. All too often we don’t appreciate how good we have it until we face that unexpected, life-changing event. A health scare, an accident at home, a sudden job disruption or a personal crisis or change. It can happen to any of us, at any time. This wonderful society also comes with responsibilities, some mandatory like taxes; oth-

Growing plants in winter


ou cannot deny the winter season is a long one up here in the North Country. But, that does not mean we cannot enjoy our gardens during the winter months. What makes a plant a good candidate for winter landscapes in our snowy region? While it is true evergreen shrubs and conifer trees add visual interest to the winter landscapes, so do many other plants. Some deciduous shrubs and trees have interesting form or showy bark. Other bushes have bright, showy berries that cling to their branches throughout the winter. Ornamental grasses and other perennials that keep their upright form also can add winter interest to the landscape. When creating a landscape that focuses on winter interest, consider using both mass plantings and single specimens. In gardening terms, mass refers to a group of coherent plantings. A mass planting can be accomplished by planting several of the same plants together or several plants that have similar color, texture, or density. These plantings complement, rather than compete with, the natural panorama and can be enjoyed both close up and from a distance. Well-placed mass plantings in any setting can draw the eye and lend a naturalistic air

to a garden. Just make sure you work with the scale of your yard, so the mass planting is not overpowering. Specimen plantings are individual trees, shrubs, or plants you want to showcase. These are plants that have unique texture, bark, or form you wish to highlight. During our long winter nights, specimen plantings can even be highlighted with the use of lighting. My in-laws had a Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris) growing in their back yard that always was a beautiful tree, but blended into the landscape. A few years ago, the tree was pruned and a few spotlights were strategically placed at the trunk. At night, with the lights creating unique shadows and highlighting the tree’s bonsai-like form the tree is now a show-stopper. Knowing how to plan your winter landscape is just one step in the process. The other step is knowing which plants hold winter interest. Next week’s column will cover a variety of plants that are worth adding to the landscape for winter interest.

Editorial/Opinion • North Countryman - 7

ers are optional such as volunteering or contributing financially. Without individuals stepping forward to accept these “optional” responsibilities our society would surely fail. Like any organization or group you belong to “dues” must be paid and sacrifices made for the good the whole group. In recent weeks the local news has been full of heroic deeds and humanitarian tasks like guardsman and soldiers returning from the front protecting the freedoms we enjoy, individuals donating organs so that others may enjoy a fuller life, volunteer fireman risking their life and safety to save lives, volunteers devoting countless hours to shelter and feed homeless individuals and even pets, toys being donated to brighten a child’s Christmas, volunteers standing out in the cold to ring bells at the red kettles collecting funds for those less fortunate and children sending funds to children in countries ravaged by storms and natural disasters. No one forces us to perform those tasks, we all recognize their importance. None of us are in a position to do it all, but each of us needs to participate in these optional responsibilities. The difference between those who do and those who do not accept these added responsibilities can be scene in their faces. The joy of helping someone other than you is a gift that can’t be replicated. The good deeds we do sooner or later circle back around making this a better community, country and world that we all must share. I urge you to do your part. If you’re unsure where to start, or even if you are already active in volunteering your time and making financial contributions, may I suggest a contribution to the United Way of the Adirondacks? Through this united community campaign many across our three county region are helped. So if the United Way is not on your “do good” list this holiday season, please, consider adding and make our place in this world a better place for us all. Dan Alexander Elizabethtown

Community talent show to benefit those in need By Renee Cumm PERU — A talent show will feature music and fun, while also raising money for those in need. It is the second year, in which Peru Community Church is sponsoring a talent show that will bring aid to the Peru Food Shelf. “Especially in January, [because] they don’t get a lot of donations,” said Rod

Driscoll, a member of the PCC Arts Council Committee who helps coordinate the event. Driscoll plays several instruments himself, one being the bouzouki, and will also be performing at the event. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday Jan. 8, at the Peru Fellowship Center. Last year, the talent show showcased a dozen performers and the church was able to raise $375 for the food shelf. This year, admission is to bring a “freewill” monetary donation or non-perishable

food item. Those who attend can also partake in the raffling of a handmade quilt to benefit the food shelf. The Peru Youth Group will also be selling refreshments at the show to raise money for a trip to Washington, D.C. The group intends on going to Washington to work in a soup kitchen feeding the homeless, Driscoll said. “It’s a fun night. It’s a nice atmosphere,” Driscoll said. “Last year, we had a real variety.” The past event featured several perform-

ances including a comedy act, jazz choir and barber shop groups, he said. Approximately 100 people showed up to support the cause. “It’s good to get the community out and have some fun,” said Driscoll. Those interested in performing this year should sign up in advance, said Driscoll. “We want people to sign up, although we have taken people at the last minute,” he said. Driscoll encourages people interested in participating to contact him at 643-2735 or Carla Brassord 643-9402 for more information.

Wallace Hill accident results in fatality

Pine Harbour in need of van for residents

PLATTSBURGH — During a two-car accident Jan. 3 at the intersection of Route 374 and the east end of Wallace Hill Road, one person ended up dead while two others were injured. Michele Facey, 56, Mooers, died as a result of injuries from a two-car crash at the intersection of Route 374 and the east end of Wallace Hill Road. Lane Gray, 76, Mooers, was also in the car, and suffered severe internal injuries. At around 1:30 p.m., a Facey’s white Ford Taurus was northbound on Wallace Hill and entered the intersection of Route 374 where a Chevy pickup, driven by Andre Lawliss, 52, Morrisonville, reportedly struck the driver ’s side door of the car. Lawliss suffered minor injuries.

PLATTSBURGH — Pine Harbour Assisted Living has been trying to raise funds for a van that can transport elderly residents. Many of the residents have had to rely on family members or public transportation to travel to doctor ’s appointments. Residents have been involved in raising funds for the van, and they recently received a $1,000 donation from New York State Corrections Officers and Police Benevolent Association, the labor unit from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. So far, $8,000 has been raised, but the facility needs to raise $80,000 more. The van needs to have a wheelchair lift and be accessible to senior residents. The facility is not eligible for grant funding to help in purchasing vehicles. Facility officials said members of the community could help by donating their money or time to the fundraising effort.

Mother, daughter scuffle PLATTSBURGH — A 24-year-old Plattsburgh woman has been accused of threatening to stab her mother with a knife. Sarah Giddings was confronted in her mothers apartment after refusing to leave Dec. 30 at 3:30 p.m. The threats allegedly took place after Giddings and her mother got into a heated argument. Giddings is facing charges of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second degree unlawful imprisonment, attempted third-degree assault, second degree menacing and endagering the welfare of a child. She is at Clinton County Jail on a $5,000 cash bail or a $10,000 bond.

Village’s school purchase proposal to go before voters By Jeremiah S. Papineau DANNEMORA — The former Dannemora Elementary School could have a new owner — that is if the village board of trustees gets approval from taxpayers next week. The village will hold a referendum Tuesday, Jan. 11, which will ask voters whether or not the municipality should take out a 30year bond to cover the $350,000 cost of purchasing the old school building. “I think it’s a great deal. There’s no way you could put a building up like this for that kind of money,” said Mayor Michael Bennett, adding the 7.1 acres of land that comes with the building adds to its value. The village has plans, if approved, to relocate its offices from the former railroad

depot just up the street, with the potential of other organizations helping them fill up the 22,363 sq. ft. building. According to a preliminary sketch provided by the village, space would be made available for the Dannemora Free Library, New York State Police and the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties food shelf to relocate from their respective locations within the village, giving them more room and improved access for the public. A community center would also be established and the school’s former gymnasium would be utilized by the village’s youth commission. There’d even be room for the village historian to establish a “minimuseum,” said Bennett, with room left over for other interested organizations. However, the mayor emphasized the preliminary plans are just that — preliminary.

“There’s nothing in stone,” said Bennett. The official cost to move the village offices has not been determined as the village has not had crews in to assess the work to be done for utilities and the like, said Bennett. “We’ve had companies approach us, but they really want to be able to get into the building to give us a price,” said Bennett. “But, from what we’ve been told and from what we’ve seen, the building’s been really maintained. It was even upgraded just before they closed it.” “So, we really don’t foresee that being an issue,” Bennett said, referring to the amount of work to be performed to make the building ready for use. The new property would also give the village and its co-tenants better accessibility through a larger parking lot and meeting

room. If voters approve the village’s proposal to buy the property, Bennett said it could be “a month, two months at the latest” before the village offices would move. If voted down, the village would have to go back to the drawing board. “We’d have to go back to see if maybe we can cut back our plans on adding to the village offices,” said Bennett. “But, we’re really looking to move forward. And, without this building, it’s going to be kind of hard.” The public vote will be held from 12 to 9 p.m. this Tuesday at the village office building, 121 Emmons St. For more information, call 492-7000. ON THE COVER: The former Dannemora Elementary School building sits vacant on Emmons Street. The village board of trustees is looking for voter approval to buy the $350,000 property.

Man born without a voice, gets one with Liberator By Renee Cumm (Editor’s Note: The following is the first in a two-part series about Lawrence Smart, a 63year-old man formerly of Plattsburgh who has no use of his voice due to having cerebral palsy. However, Smart has found his voice through the use of an electronic device known as a Liberator.) PLATTSBURGH — Lawrence Smart may not be able to speak, but through the use of technology, he can communicate in a way he once never could. Smart, the eldest of seven children, was born in the hamlet of Redford April 17, 1971. He was born with cerebral palsy, a condition that usually appears before a child reaches age 3. The most common effects of the condition are lack of muscle coordination when performing voluntary movements, stiff muscles and exaggerated reflexes. Many people with the condition are intellectually aware of

their surroundings, but are often confined to a wheelchair. Assisting someone with this condition can be challenging, since they are often immobile. Smart’s mother described him as being crippled throughout his life. “That is what we told everyone,” his sister, Louise Tedford, said. “We didn’t know about cerebral palsy.” One of the most difficult challenges Smart faced with his condition was the inability to speak. For 46 years, Smart could only communicate with his immediate family through non-verbal signals or body language, such as moving his eyes up and down for “ yes” or side to side for “no” — until he received his Liberator in 1993. “It was like he was a baby,” said Tedford. “We just knew what he wanted.” When he was 46, Smart found his voice in the form of a Liberator — an electronic device that he can operate by using his head to press a button located on the headrest of his

wheelchair. The Liberator then cycles through a quarter row of icons and symbols, with two or more symbols making up a sentence. That allows Smart to communicate hundreds of words using this technique. Advanced technological voice devices, such as Smart’s Liberator, have allowed many people a chance to finally communicate with others. Tedford said it is amazing to watch her brother using his Liberator. “When Lawrence received his Liberator, my father was so pleased,” said Tedford, adding their father couldn’t understand Smart before he had the device. Smart’s mother cared for him until her health failed at age 71, said Tedford. After attempting to live in a nursing home, Smart settled into Sunmount in Keeseville, a home for the developmentally-disabled. Many of the residents there cannot speak, but Smart will try to communicate with anyone who will listen, she said. “He’s a very outgoing man,” said Tedford.

Cadyville man hurt in two-car accident Salvation Army falls short of goal CADYVILLE — David Allen, 56, Cadyville, was injured in a two-car accident Jan. 3, near Bucks Corners Road after he struck another vehicle in his path. The other vehicle was driven by Leonard Rock, 80, Cadyville. Allen was transported to CVPH Medical Center, where he was treated and later released. Rock was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way at a stop sign. Allen was issued a seat-belt ticket.

PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh Salvation Army is facing cuts after their 2010 kettle campaign did not reach its goal. Rough weather and a shortage of volunteers have been said to have contributed to the loss, however the agency had raised $35,000, which is enough funds to cover basic services. The next few months will have the most effect on people in need. Areas to be cut are gas and transportation. People who need clothes, food and shelter will be the main priority of the agency.

PLATTSBURGH — The United Way of the Adirondack Region is partnering with local restaurants next week to help others. The first-ever Dine Out for the United Way of the Adirondacks will take place Thursday, Jan. 13, with a dozen restaurants across the tri-county region participating by either donating a percent of their proceeds, a percent of the wait staff tips or making a straight donation to the United Way of the Adirondack Region. Proceeds will benefit the more than 35 organizations United Way provides funding for in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. “We expect it to be successful for its first year and anticipate it to grow, hopefully doubling in participants over the next couple years,” said Kirk A. Stallsmith, chairman of the local United Way’s 2010-11 fundraising campaign and co-chair of next Thursday’s event.

The public can help by simply dining out at one of the participating restaurants. Those who do and say they are “Dining Out for United Way” can enter into a drawing for raffle prizes donated to the United Way, including signed Buffalo Bills and New York Jets jerseys, gift certificates, and gift baskets from Adirondack Specialty Food. After the event, tickets will be collected from the participating restaurants and winners will be drawn. Seven restaurants have signed on for the event in the city and town of Plattsburgh: Arnie’s Restaurant, 20 Margaret St.; Bazzano’s Pizza, 5041 S. Catherine St.; Ground Round, 32 Smithfield Blvd.; KOTO Japanese Steakhouse, 319 Cornelia St.; Mainely Lobster and Seafood, 1785 Military Turnpike; Michele’s Fine Dining, 5131 U.S. Ave.; and My Cup of Tea, 50 Margaret St. For a more complete list of restaurants and their addresses, visit and click on the Special Events tab.

opened last June. “It was just a great year, as far as the number of people through,” said Laurin. According to the register signed by visitors to the museum, 2,036 individuals visited the River Road facility through the museum’s seasonal closure Nov. 1. Another 236 were recorded as visiting with a group. “We had school kids from Peru, Beekmantown, Chazy ... and we had Cub Scouts from Keeseville,” said Laurin, noting overall, 13 percent of registered visitors were from outside Clinton County. “We all know not everyone actually signed in, so I believe these are conservative numbers,” he added. “And, I know we had three or four people that came back at least three times.” What’s added to the attraction of the museum is the fact it is a “hands-on” facility, encouraging children and adults alike to interact with exhibits, said Laurin. “We would put five or six kids on a rope and they would all pull a bale of hay up to the hay mow and slide it in,” he said. “We had stations for kids where they would do scavenger hunts for items and our guides would explain them. It’s been very interactive, which I think gives us a slight advantage over other museums.” Creating that interaction also allows people to see how even more difficult life was on a farm from the 1800s to even just a few decades ago.

January 8, 2011 “Teaching these kids and seeing their reactions is just phenomenal,” said Laurin. “We enjoy the heck out of it.” Though the museum has been enjoyed and attendance was reasonable for its first year, Laurin said he’d like to see an even bigger year when the museum reopens in the spring. “We are struggling a lit bit financially, like every museum is. But, we’re hanging in there and we will hang in there,” said Laurin. The board which oversees the operation of the museum is now planning for what the facility will offer when it reopens, including new exhibits and bringing back popular attractions like the hay bale-lifting exhibit and stage coach rides. “There’s just a lot of work to do,” said Laurin, who said day-to-day operations will now be handled by Babbie while he oversees more of the “behind the scenes” tasks. Laurin said he would just like to see more schools take advantage of having a place where kids can truly touch history. “We’re close for the schools and for only a couple dollars a child it’s a reasonable thing,” he said. “Having this here is invaluable for the community.” Donations, said Laurin, will greatly help offset the cost of operating the museum. Contributions to the museum may be mailed in care of Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum, 250 River Road, Peru N.Y. 12972. More information about the museum may be found online at site/babbieruralfarmlearningmuseum or by calling 643-8052.

Scott to retire from superintendency By Jeremiah S. Papineau PERU — The end of the school year will mark the end of an era for A. Paul Scott. The Peru Central School District superintendent of schools will retire this June after more than a decade of service. Scott said he personally called each of the school district’s seven board of education members prior to winter recess last month to first inform them of his decision. “I thought it was very appropriate and important that each of them heard directly from me so they understood why I thought this was the right time,” said Scott. Scott, who started his career in education 34 years ago as a music teacher, said he made his intentions known midyear because he wanted to give the board of education ample time before the end of the school year to find his replace-

ment. As to why he’s retiring, Scott said he’s been eligible to retire for the past two years, and only recently gave it more thought. “I can tell you, as a music teacher, there’s a lot to be said that the end of the performance should be when people might still be looking for just one more selection rather than wondering when the performance is going to end,” he said candidly. “Everybody reaches a time when it seems like this is the right time and, at this particular moment in time, I feel it’s the right time.” Throughout his tenure, Scott said he’s seen many accomplishments for the district, including high marks across the board with each of the districts four schools. The high school’s participation and success in the College for Every Student program was one that immediately came to mind for Scott. He also touted the contin-

ued modernization of the district campus through various capital improvement projects. That is something he credits to the taxpayers within the district who have voted time and again to make improvements that ultimately benefit the students, said Scott. “One of the more challenge aspects as a superintendent of schools, is trying to balance the interests of what will benefit children with the interest of what the community can take on and financially support at any given point in time,” said Scott. “We’ve tried to be as efficient as we can.” Scott credited the “strong set” of administrators, operations supervisors, faculty members and support staff for making the decision easier for him to say goodbye. “For a superintendent, when those elements are in place, that is an ideal time to consider if [retirement] seems suitable personally,” said Scott. “This organization is

well-prepared to face the future and to respond to what’s ahead with the interests of students and the community in mind.” “It’s not the case of one superintendent doing that work,” emphasized Scott. “It’s the case of the seven elected officials, the administrators, operations supervisors

and staff working together.” The board of education will now actively pursue finding Scott’s replacement while Scott said the district will continue its focus on increasing graduation rates and continuing to improve curriculum instruction.

Aird Dorrance purchased by VP Supply MORRISONVILLE — Aird Dorrance, a supplier of household materials and industrial products has been purchased by VP Supply, which will be operating its company as a local division of VP. The descision to sell was partly due to the economic situation of the state, as well as, distribution factors of venders in the marketplace. VP will allow 10 times more access to inventory. Aird Dorrance was founded by Aird and Barbara Dorrance in 1960. The company opened in Morrisonville in 2003, as a supplier of plumbing, kitchen, flooring, lighting and industrial materials. Aird Dorrance has 35 different employees at three different locations. VP will now offer wholesale plumbing, HVAC, kitchen and renewable energy products to contractors and other customers. The Dorrances have planned to stay on to help manage the three locations in New York. Final terms of the purchase have not been released.

What to think about when getting a pellet stove By Sarah L. Cronk WEST CHAZY — When walking outside in 20-something degree weather, people often begin to wonder the best way to heat their home. With the new trend of turning to ecofriendly products on the rise, pellet stoves may be taken into consideration. According to George Thew, owner of Heat Wave on Route 22, he first began the business five years ago with pellet stoves in mind. “Basically I was always tinkering with different ways to heat my home,” said Thew. “The pellet idea came up and I started using the products myself. There wasn’t anybody in the area that knew anything about a pellet stove or anything like that and one thing led to another and we decided to open up a shop.” Thew has found people are switching to the pellet stove for many reasons. “I guess when it comes to pellet products, people switch because it’s a less expensive way to heat their home, versus oil,” he said, adding pellets average about $200-250 per ton, with the majority of homes burning about four to six tons a season. “It’s a renewable resource, so that’s kind of nice. Depending on how the manufacturing process goes, for the most part it does burn much


greener. You’re not using the petroleum products to create the fuel with ethanol.” In comparison to wood stoves, the U.S. Department of Energy states popularity of heating with wood resurfaced in the 1970s as it was considered a renewable energy alternative during the energy crisis. However, their Web site states “Wood-burning appliances and fireplaces may emit large quantities of air pollutants. Wood smoke contains hundreds of chemical compounds including nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, organic gases, and particulate matter, many of which have adverse health effects. In many urban and rural areas, smoke from wood burning is a major contributor to air pollution.” On the other hand, pellets are made from compacted, sawdust, wood chips, bark, agricultural crop waste, waste paper and other organic materials. Other pros Thew has found with the pellet stoves is they are able to be thermostatically controlled and will start and shut themselves off. However, there are other things to take into consideration if look at pellet stoves. Thew said the pellets come in 40-pound bags that will need to be lifted and poured into a small container in the stove. “That may become an issue with a particular customer,” he said, adding the pellets typically need to be filled on a daily basis. Another issue is the cleaning of the

stoves. “Those customers that don’t want to spend a lot of time cleaning them, because you do have to clean any solid fuel burner,” he said. Also, if the power goes out, a pellet stove will be useless. “With pellet stoves, unless you have a battery backup system, or a generator, when the power goes out, you don’t have heat,” said Thew. “Those are just things we look at when we talk to a customer.”
