11 Critical Home Inspection Traps To Be Aware Of Weeks Before Listing Your Home For Sale Clinton County- According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 Items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether.

PLATTSBURGH — The numbers are still coming in, but early tallies show the United Way of the Adirondack Region has met its most recent fundraising goal, thanks to the help of local restaurants and their patrons. The first-ever Dine Out for the United Way of the Adirondack Region has raised more than its $2,000 goal to date, according to local United Way administrative coordinator Kathy Snow. The Jan. 13 event involved a dozen restaurants across the tri-county region giving a percent of their proceeds or wait staff tips or making a flat donation to the United Way. “I think, for out first one, it was a success,” said Snow. “We still have five restaurants we’re waiting on to report how much was given.” Hearing that excited John C. Bernardi, executive director of the local United Way. “This was a great opportunity to really engage not only the restaurant community, but the community at large in terms of individuals and families dining out,” said Bernardi. “In addition to raising important funds for the community, it was a great opportunity to promote our mission and the important impact we make throughout the region.” Jill Brockway, owner of Charlie’s Inn in Lake Clear, gave a flat donation of $50 to the United Way through the event. Participating was something Brockway said she was proud her business could do, considering how United Way helps organizations locally like Hospice of the

North Country and North Country Life Flight. “The money stays within our community ... that means a lot,” she said. “That makes you feel good.” When Brockway’s mother-in-law suffered a brain aneurysm, it was North Country Life Flight that airlifted her to Burlington, Vt., for treatment. And, when snowmobilers get hurt on the trails, the only way they can be reached quickly is by one of North Country Life Flight’s helicopters. “[North Country Life Flight] is important to us,” said Brockway, crediting the United Way for helping the organization. “That’s why I’m really glad we were asked to participate. Hopefully, next year it will get bigger and bigger.” Laurie LaPointe, manager of Mainely Lobster and Seafood in Plattsburgh, said her business saw a good turnout for the event, with people eager to do their part by simply dining out. “We ended up with at least 20 to 25 people that went here just for the United Way,” said LaPointe. “We had many different people come here just for [the event].” The Plattsburgh business ended up presenting the United Way with a flat donation of $100, which amounted to approximately 8 percent of Mainely Lobster ’s sales that day, said LaPointe. “We enjoyed it and getting their name out there for them,” she said. “It’s a great organization because they help a lot of different organizations.” When a final total is completed, proceeds will be divided among the more than 35 organizations United Way provides funding for in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties.

Pet dental care should be a priority for owners By Renee Cumm renee@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — People want clean and healthy teeth, but what about when it comes to their pet’s teeth? As February is National Pet Dental Health Month, it may be a time to consider scheduling routine dental visits for those furry friends. “An increase in client awareness and the pet industry has helped. People want to spend more for their pets,” Plattsburgh Animal Hospital manager Carey Crowningshield said. Crowningshield added those who spoil their pets with toys and treats, are likely to make sure they have healthy teeth as well. A good time to start scheduling routine dental visits for pets is at around 6 years-old. “A pre-anesthetic blood screening will come first to rule out the biggest complications,” Crown-

ingshield explained. Then, the animal is put under anesthesia, while the doctor scales and polishes the teeth. A pet should have its teeth cleaned every two years, depending on the state of the teeth and/or the animal’s health history. “If [a pet] has good oral health, they tend to have good general health,” she said. Pet dental care is as important for animals, as it is for people. “There is no way to avoid it,” Plattsburgh Animal Hospital veterinarian Thomas J. Brown Jr. said. Brown said toxins from an abscess tooth can lead to infections throughout the body, which can lead to more health issues. Dental problems are more common in smaller breed dogs that eat mostly canned food rather than dry food. Animals can get both tooth aches and cavities. “The mouth is a source of infection for the whole body,” he said.

Pet owners can reduce pet health issues by scheduling routine cleanings early on. They can also contribute to their pet’s dental health right from home. Buying dental toys, using stylized pet brushes, and/or trying to decrease the amount of canned wet food are just a few steps that can make a big difference in their pet’s dental health, Crowningshield said. “There is a beef and liver flavored tooth paste as an abrasive to brush their teeth,” Crowningshield said. Several local animal hospitals have discounts to encourage pet owners to schedule dental visits for their pet. For the first time, Plattsburgh Animal Hospital will be offering a 10 percent discount this February for dental exams and cleanings. For more information on pet dental care, contact your local veterinarian or Plattsburgh Animal Hospital 566-7387.

How to get your kids interested in physical fitness W

hen getting kids involved in a fitness program, one important factor is that it should be fun as well as safe. This can be done with a group of children, one on one with a parent or trainer, or with a buddy. A fun idea would be to arrange a “fitness play date” with a few friends. Parents, feel free to join in, it will keep you young at heart, so have some fun and set a good example for your kids by having fun and keeping fit as a family. Safety is always number one so if you are not sure how to perform any of the following exercises, please be sure

to seek the help of a qualified fitness professional. Side Plank/Plank Combo: Start in a side plank, hold for 5-10 seconds, move to plank, hold for 5-10 seconds, move to side plank on the other side, hold for 5-10 seconds. Repeat 2-4 times for a complete set. Single Leg Ball Toss: Play catch while standing on one foot. See who can balance the longest without putting their foot down. Frog Jumps: Squat down and jump up, when you land you want to stabilize yourself before jumping again. Jump in all different directions.

Frontal Jumps: Use a piece of masking tape to mark the floor or chalk if you are outside. Jump forward over the line. You can even stack things up like small pillows or piles of snow if you’re outside to add to the challenge by jumping over obstacles of different heights. Push ups: See who can do the most, either from the knees or standard. Partner Pull Ups: One child sits on the floor while the other child

pulls them up. Repeat 8-12 times for each arm. Partner Wall Sits: Two children of similar height stand back to back. Step your feet out in front of you a foot or two and squat against each other to about the height of a chair. See who can hold it the longest. This can also be done against a wall.

Relays: Pick 3-4 different events Example: Bear Crawl > Crab Crawl > Skip > Sprint. To get a youth fitness program started for your school, group, or family, feel free to contact me.

Ode to a tiny green tree frog I have a tiny green tree frog and it brings me luck. Laugh if you like, but it’s true. In fact, the tiny green tree frog of which I speak has had mystical powers since it was first bestowed upon me by my daughter at the tender age of three. I discovered the little plastic replica jammed between two seat cushions in my pickup, in between a candy wrapper and a wad of discarded Gummy Bears. “Sweetheart, you forgot your toy,” I said, holding out the dime-sized frog to her as she disembarked her flowered car seat. She took it, turned it slowly in front of her face, then offered it back. “I want you to have it, Daddy,” she said sweetly, her long eyelashes batting away beneath a woolen winter cap like Cindy Lou Who from Dr. Suess’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. If that sequence of events doesn’t bestow mystical power on an inanimate object, I’m not sure what will. So, I slipped the tattered tiny green tree frog into a front shirt pocket and plopped a kiss on my precious daughter ’s forehead. “I shall cherish it forever,” I told her, not fully comprehending the complete significance of the statement. From that moment forward, the luck emanating from that tiny green tree frog has been nothing short of miraculous. Because of its near supernatural abilities, however, I have saved the tiny green tree frog’s mystical power for only the specialist of occasions. Like hunting season. Oh, and brook trout season. And there was that one golf tournament with my Dad, but I am sworn to secrecy on that so as to uphold the sanctity of the match. Anyway ... the tiny green tree frog began proving its mystical amphibian powers the very first hunting season I carried it. The year was 2006, and I entered deer season with no more expectation than any other year. I had failed to consider, though, one serious ace in my corner. Or, more aptly, a shirtpocket hitchhiker in the form of a tiny green tree frog. As luck would have it, the season turned out to be my best ever, starting with a slammer 140-class 11-pointer I shot with my muzzlestuffer. I would put a lot more bucks on the carpet over the years with that tiny green tree frog in my shirtpocket, the most recent being the monster 8-pointer I shot in Manitoba this year. The frog brought similar luck on the ponds, affording me several four and even a few five-pound class brookies. Afterward, it became tradition to photograph the tiny green tree frog with my tro-

phy — perched atop fin, feather or fur, whichever happened to be the quarry of the day. Needless to say, my magic tree frog quickly became the envy of my chums at hunting camp. So much so, they began trying to mimic the good luck charm, showing up at camp with assorted items of their own. There was Harold with his worn teddy bear from preschool. Mike and his collection of Star Wars bobble head figures. Then Bob showed up wearing his youngest son’s water wings. Oh how we chuckled. My ex-wife even reported a late-night prowler going through her curbside trash receptacle, hoping my daughter had discarded something lucky ... anything. A lollipop stick. A hair tie. A half eaten apple. Anything. All he got, though, was a backside full of rock salt. I knew teaching her to shoot would come in handy someday. Lucky for me, it was after we parted ways. But, back to the lucky frog. I’m not sure how the tiny green tree frog first landed in my daughter ’s possession. Perhaps it was once an enchanted galleon passed from generation to generation, originating in the time of powerful witchcraft and sorcery, of King Arthur and Camelot. Too much of a stretch, you think? Well, more likely it has something to do with the fact that I’ve carried it with me during almost every outdoor pursuit since my daughter gave it to me five years ago. I do know one thing, though. It definitely has more mystical power than those foolish water wings.

Clinton and Verizon NextStep Medicare updates for 2011

C

linton Community College has been a Verizon NextStep training facility since 2005. NextStep is a company sponsored training program that allows employees the opportunity to earn a two-year telecommunications degree by attending school one workday per week over a four-year, eight-semester period. Students come to Clinton from as far away as Watertown to the west and Albany to the south. We graduate our second class this May and start the third group in the fall with each class growing in size. I believe the growth is directly attributable to our reputation as a good school. Our first formal review occurred in 2009 with the outcome, according to the coordinators of the entire program, identifying Clinton as a top training provider. Verizon sponsors two events per year for all faculty members who teach within the NextStep program. The events are referred to as Faculty Institutes and they are academic conferences that allow faculty to discuss curriculum issues and attend workshops. The institutes occur in January and June each year. The June event is the larger of the two, with all faculty members, while in Jan-

uary the attendees are mostly faculty who teach digital or telecom courses and the program coordinators from each college. Last week, I attended the January event in Bedford, Mass. Having responsibility for both digital and telecom courses I always have to decide which curriculum group to join during the different sessions. Luckily, the program coordinator at ClinBy Ron Poland ton attends every institute and often monitors the sessions I cannot attend. The main focus of telecom workshops this year was video over IP, which I was happy to see because the NextStep curriculum has gravitated toward extensive coverage of both voice and video over IP. It’s also personally interesting as I consider switching entirely to television programming delivered via the Internet. 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. Questions may be sent to him via e-mail at ron@ronpoland.com.

H

ealth Insurance Information Counseling and Assistance Program counselors have been receiving a lot of questions and expressions of concern about the increase in Medicare Part B premiums when balanced with no cost of living allowance, or COLA, increase in Social Security benefits for 2011. The majority of people with Medicare will not see an increase in their Part B premium. Many beneficiaries will continue to pay the same premium they paid in 2010 for their Part B coverage ($96.40 or $110.50). This is due to a law that protects Medicare beneficiaries who do not receive a Social Security COLA from seeing an increase in Part B premiums which would decrease their monthly Social Security benefit. Of course, there are exceptions. Your Part B premium will increase to $115.40 in 2011 if you do not collect Social Security and pay for your Medicare Part B directly to Social Security, you are a new enrollee to Medicare for 2011, or if you are single and your adjusted gross income is above $85,000 or married and your income is $170,000. If you have chosen to have your Part D Prescription Drug Plan premium paid from your Social Security check and that premi-

December’s ‘Basket’ stable

T

he 41 items in the Market Basket came in at $93.96, down just a few cents from $94.08 in November, and up 2 percent from last December's cost of $91.70. The only significant changes for the month were a 4 percent and 3 percent drop on miscellaneous items and dairy products respectively. For the year, prices were up in every category except frozen foods and canned goods. The cost of Del Monte fruit cocktail went up this month to $1.60 after dropping to $1.54 last month. The 11 percent decline on this item combined with an 11 percent decline on the cost of Starkist chunk light tuna brought the overall category down 3 percent for the year. Meat prices were stable for the month, but up 6 percent for the year. Bottom round roast, center cut pork chops and Oscar Mayer sliced bacon are all up over 15 percent from December 2009. In the dairy case, sales on butter brought the price down 5 percent for the month, but this item is still 50 percent higher than this time last year. Prices on skim and whole milk continued to rise and are both higher than in 2009. A 24 percent drop on the price of sliced American cheese kept the dairy category from in-

creasing more than 2 percent overall. Frozen foods, miscellaneous items and breads, cereals and grains remained stable for another month. For the year sugar has changed significantly in price, up 15 percent. River rice is also up, 10 percent per pound. Produce prices were unchanged for the month and year. Increases on bananas, and onions were offset by decreases on red Delicious apples, carrots and iceberg lettuce. Drink prices were up on coffee and tea bags for both the month and year. Coffee is up 9 percent over December 2009 prices.

Seasonal reminders Apples, pears, and seedless red and green grapes are in good supply. Just as everyone needs Vitamin C to combat winter colds, grapefruit and oranges are at their peak, and will be readily available through April. We have become used to the availability of peaches, cherries, plums, nectarines, and other summer fruits all year; with transportation prices rising so will the costs on all these items from other regions. The Market Basket Report is a bi-monthly survey of 41 commonly purchased grocery items. Four major supermarkets in the Plattsburgh area are surveyed and data is compiled and reported by the Technical Assistance Center at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Getting local food in winter

W

inter in the North Country can be a very cruel time for the home gardener. By this time, my supply of home grown produce stored in the house is quickly dwindling. The green beans, sweet potatoes, and squash are all gone. All I have left to get me through the winter is some frozen berries, some potatoes, and garlic. I will not run out of food. It is 2011! I can easily go to the grocery store down the street to buy more produce, but that is different. Food grown in your own family’s garden or from a local farmer is different from the produce you can purchase at the grocery store. The varieties of tomatoes, squash, and other summer vegetables available at the grocery store in the winter are selected and grown because they can withstand being shipped long distances and are uniform in color, size, and shape. Beets or carrots grown locally are varieties that are most often chosen for their good flavor and high nutritional values. Besides tasting better, locally-grown foods supports our local families and neighbors. Farmlands, and a way of life, are preserved when you purchase local products. And, there is less air pollution produced from locallygrown food because the food isn’t being shipped across the country.

You may think that it is a crazy idea, buying local produce during the winter. But, it is rather easy. Production techniques allow farmers to grow greens year-round in structures called high tunnels. Carrots, beets, squash, apples, and other produce can be stored in root cellars throughout most of the winter. One great place to find local food is www.plattsburghfarmersmarket.com. It is a group of local producers who offer their products — ranging from produce to local, grassfed meats, to baked goods — on-line. Costumers place an order and pick up their products once a week at Rehoboth Homestead Farms in Peru. For a small fee, the products can be delivered, if the costumer lives within the designated delivery route. Another place to look for local foods is www.adirondackharvest.com. This webpage offers locations to local farmers markets, farm stands, and stores and restaurants that carry local foods. Knowing that locally-grown food is available year-round is one simple way to remember how quickly the new gardening season will be here!

Editorial/Opinion • North Countryman - 7

The importance of helping United Way I am writing this letter in support of the 2010 United Way Campaign. This is my fifth year serving on the campaign team, which truly is a team effort. We have a large team of volunteers working hard to spread the story and to reach out to individuals that haven't donated in the past. The United Way of the Adirondack Region Inc. serves the counties of Clinton, Essex and Franklin. We are so fortunate to have this non-profit organization in our community. I cannot imagine what our lives would be like if they weren't here. The United Way family of agencies provides specialized services for children, families, the elderly, those requiring health services or rehabilitation, youth under increasing pressures, and even for the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter. Other services provided include: facilitating networking for health and human services organizations, providing forums on critical community issues, providing meeting space for community groups and organizations, and promoting healthy development of children and families. These services are possible due to the financial support from the United Way. You can visit the website (www.unitedwayadk.org) to learn more about the organization and to watch the 8-minute video which summarizes things very nicely.

I urge you to consider donating to this year's campaign. Everyone's donation helps to meet this year's goal of $750,000. It can be made easily with one of these modes of payment: cash, check, credit card, or payroll deduction. Simply mail the donation to: United Way of the Adirondack Region Inc., 45 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh N.Y. 12901. You may also call them at 563-0028 to request a pledge form be mailed to you or just stop by the office (Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-4 p.m.). With your contribution, no matter how small, we can count on the services being there which we may sometimes take for granted. One never knows when they may need the support of one of the 36 agencies that the United Way supports. Thank you in advance for participating in this year's campaign. Together we make the North Country a better place by supporting and helping one another. Lisa VanNatten Plattsburgh

Students find out what floats their boats By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com

Students in Kyle Syck’s physics class and Josh Wolosz’ s engineering class race each other in cardboard and duct tape boats. Photo by Sarah L. Cronk

CHAZY — Students at Chazy Central Rural School spent Jan. 21 having fun in the school pool — all in the name of education. Engineering teacher Kyle Syck and physics teacher Josh Wolosz, both firstyear teachers at CCRS, worked together on a project for the students in their classes — making boats out of household items. “The idea for the cardboard boat activity came from Josh,” explained Syck. “He had done it at a school before and I also saw done in a district that I previously worked at. We both thought it would be a good activity for my principals of engineering class and his high school physics class.” The students, split into seven groups of three or four, spent a few days designing

and preparing their boats. They received two 4x8 sheets of cardboard, three rolls of duct tape, and a 1”x 6” x 6’ piece of pine wood. “There are two objects for this activity. Well the first is obviously to construct a boat that floats out of the provided materials. Then there are two testing criteria,” explained Syck. The criteria is to try to have the fastest boat, and the best floating boat. The teams were split into a heat of three and a heat of four. The results varied considerably, with one team making it down and back in just over a minute, and a few other teams sinking before completing the race. In terms of the best floating boat, Syck explained “the weight load is tested by having one member sit in their boat, it

must stay afloat for 30 seconds. Then another student is added, so on and so forth, until the boat sinks.” Students were weighed before the activity to determine how much weight is being added to each boat. “For the competition, the winning boat held approximately 400 pounds before sinking,” said Syck. In the end, Syck felt the activity was a success. “Everything did go as planned. Students designed and constructed their boats and I feel the tests went better than expected,” he said. “The only oversight we had was the time allotted for testing. We thought it would take an hour or two to test each boat in both categories. In actuality, the testing was done in about 45 minutes.” But that was okay for the students, who spent the rest of the time enjoying the pool. “All the students had a blast and I actually had more than one student come up and tell me how much fun they had,” said Syck. “It’s nice to see an idea like this come to fruition and the students learn so much while having fun.” The three winning teams are as follows: First place — Kirsten Doran, Kathryn Tooke, and Keith Bishop. Second place — Jordan Barriere, Addy LaDue, Stephanie Brown, and Zach Desjardins. Third place — Ricky Osier, Miranda Oshier, Tirzah Richmond, and Cheyenne Naples.

ADKYP to host fourth annual economic forum Feb. 10 Denton Publications editor Jeremiah Papineau to moderate event PLATTSBURGH — The Adirondack Young Professionals — a nonprofit organization which focuses on creating networking opportunities for young professionals in the North Country — will host its fourth annual economic forum Thursday, Feb. 10, at Olive Ridley’s, 37 Court St. Keri L. Mack, president of the ADKYP board of directors, said the forum will feature a panel of community leaders who will discuss various topics relating to quality of life issues as they pertain to young professionals in our region. “The purpose of the forum every year is to provide an outlet for young professionals in the community to talk about issues relating to the economy that directly affects them,” said Mack. The focus of last year ’s forum was on green issues and their relation to economic development, said Mack. That was timed with the focus of President Barack Obama on green initiatives following his election in 2009. “This year, we decided to focus more on quality of life issues,” said Mack. “We decided that is an area that a lot of young professionals are very interested in and that’s why people are moving here. We want to know why people are moving here, if people who live here are happy with their decision to live here, what makes people stay here.” The featured panelists this year will speak to their own experiences of being drawn to or

beginning a business in the North Country. Sharing their experiences and fielding questions about quality of life and economic development will be Rick Leibowitz, director of the North Country Small Business Development Center; Erin Hynes, economic developer for The Development Corporation; Kerry Haley, executive director of the Foundation of CVPH Medical Center; Nikki Wright, director of lending services with the Adirondack Economic Development Corporation; and Josh Kretser, owner of pod studio. This year ’s forum will be moderated by Jeremiah S. Papineau, senior editor for the Plattsburgh office of Denton Publications. “I think that this year ’s format, and with Jeremiah Papineau as our moderator, it’s going to be more interactive,” said Mack. “Before, we had more of a question and answer format. Now, we’ll have more of an open discussion, but will still have time for questions and answers.” “I’m looking forward to this year ’s economic forum,” said Papineau, who oversees production of the ‘burgh and North Countryman, two weekly newspapers for Denton Publications. “It gives members of the community a chance to hear from those really active in the local business community and to have their questions answered. Open dialogue like this is important to recruiting and retaining qualified workers in our region.” The forum will begin at 5:30 p.m., ending at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information, call 335-8125.

Sunrise Rotary getting wacky with winter By Jeremiah S. Papineau

jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club is gearing up for an event that’s been more than a year in the making — though not intentionally. The club’s first-ever Wacky Winter Carnival was supposed to be held last year at May Currier Park but, due to extremely frigid temperatures, was canceled, explained event chair Joan Sterling. “We had it all planned but it ended up being on the coldest day of the year,” said Sterling. “So, we were able to use a lot of the same stuff from last year.” Though the date of the event

Where do I park? How can I help? Organizers ask those attending the Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club Wacky Winter Carnival to park in the medical office building parking lot off Cornelia Street, which provide the closest access to the registration tables. “It’s really important they park there because we want to make sure that the people who come to the hospital to visit or who need to come in have their parking,” said event chair Joan Sterling. Signs will also be posted directing people where to go. Those coming to the event are also encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to be donated to local food pantries. “If people choose to bring something, great, if they don’t, that’s okay, too,” said Sterling.

changed, the idea behind it hasn’t, said Sterling. Rotarians wanted then and still seek to host an event for families to enjoy together, in the great outdoors. “We were concerned with the health and well-being of our families and our children,” explained Sterling. “So, we thought why not plan a wonderful free winter carnival day where kids and their families can get out and enjoy some exercise and be healthy.” During the planning of this year ’s event, the administration of CVPH Medical Center offered use of the hospital’s front lawn off Beekman Street, providing a larger venue within the city to host the carnival’s activities. “It takes the event to a whole other level that we’re really excited about,” said committee member Joanne Knowlton. The carnival, which will be hosted

from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5, will include horse-drawn wagon rides around the hospital campus, sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing and crosscountry skiing. The best part about the snowshoeing and cross-country skiing activities is they will be offered with instruction at 12 and 2 p.m., for those who are interested, said Knowlton. “With some kids, this will be their first introduction to outdoor sports they can really use for the rest of their lives. I just think that’s really cool for Sunrise Rotary to be doing,” said Knowlton, adding instruction for ice skating will be held throughout the event. The day will also include snow sculpting, wheelbarrow races and a frying pan toss. Yes, a frying pan toss. “Originally, it was going to be tossing frying pans, and the more and more we talked about it, the more and

more we got nervous,” Knowlton said with a chuckle. “We’re still going to have frying pans, but, instead, we’re going to be having people use them to toss pancakes to each other. I think that’ll be fun because it’ll be something every age group can do.” However, the fun won’t just be outside, noted Sterling. Inside CVPH, in the hallway near the hospital’s cafeteria, tables will be set up where children and their families can make all sorts of crafts, including pine cone bird feeders. “There will be a lot of different crafts inside and even just a place for people to come in to get warm for a little bit,” said Sterling. “We’re going to have free hot chocolate and coffee.” The CVPH cafeteria will also be open for people to purchase other items, if they wish, she added. “I just think it’s going to be so excit-

Legion post celebrating the season Annual Winterfest returns Feb. 4-6 By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com WEST PLATTSBURGH — When winter comes, it’s only a matter of time before one of the biggest winter celebrations comes along — the American Legion Post 1619 Winterfest. Irene Rock, one of the organizers for the annual event, said it takes several weeks for a band of dedicated volunteers to plan and prepare for the three-day celebration, typically held the first weekend in February. “It’s great how everyone comes together to make it a success,” said Rock. “We’ve been working steady

since before Christmas but it’s not bad, because everybody wants to help. It’s just amazing.” Winterfest will once again kick off with a fish fry from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 4, followed by an opening ceremony featuring guest speakers and a performance by the American Legion Post 1619 Color Guard. What will add to the entertainment, said Rock, will be a new fireworks show, performed by Dr. Joe Clauss, a licensed pyrotechnic. “He says it’s going to be a show the North Country has never seen before,” said Rock. “It’s going to be pretty cool.” The annual Winterfest Dance, which includes the crowning of a king and queen for the event, will follow, rounding out the night. The following day, Saturday, Feb. 5, festivities will kick off at 11 a.m.,

with free, family-oriented activities including open skating, sledding, hockey, broomball games and a curling competition. Horse-drawn wagon rides will be offered from 12 to 3 p.m. The remainder of the day will include 50/50 drawings, raffles and live entertainment. Festivities will continue Sunday, Feb. 6, beginning again at 11 a.m. “It’s going to be a fun weekend,” said Rock. Free hot chocolate and coffee will be served. The post will also offer hot dogs, michigans, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, French fries, chili, clam chowder and other selections for $1 each. Proceeds from the weekend will go the Veterans Assistance Fund, which helps veterans throughout Clinton County pay for expenses like fuel oil and transportation to and from doctors’ appointments. The

event helps veterans each year, said Rock, who added they are the ones who help the post give back to the community. “This is an opportunity to get the community together and see our Legion isn’t just a bunch of old soldiers sitting at the bar. We do stuff for the community and help any way we can,” said Rock. And, for those who have never been to Winterfest, Rock said this year is just as good a year as any. “It’s a chance to come out and have some fun. Bring your mother, your father, your sister, brother, uncle — anybody — and just enjoy the day,” said Rock. “It’s a great weekend for families to enjoy themselves without spending a ton of money.” For more information, contact the post at 561-8706.

ing and I think the community is just going to love it,” said Sterling. The day won’t end with the carnival, however. Rotarians have also planned a tree lighting that night at 7 p.m. at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, 23 Brinkerhoff St. Red lights will be lit on the tree in honor of “Go Red for Women,” another initiative supported by the Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club. The tree lighting event, headed up by Rotarian Shirley O’Connell, will include a performance by the Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir, with a free wine tasting and hors d’oeuvre reception to follow. The evening will also include the unveiling of a “lady in red,” a life-size replica of the Go Red for Women red dress logo. For more information about the tree lighting, call O’Connell at 563-8450.

e l i b o m Snow s p i T y t fe Sa

BEFORE YOU TRAVEL

THE LAW

• Write down where you are going, your route, time of departure and return. Ensure your snowmobile is in good working condition, lots of gas and oil for your trip, spare drive belt and spark plugs. • You should never travel alone, always try to find a partner to travel with. • Ensure you dress properly. Clothing should be put on in layers. If you become too hot and your clothing traps the moisture, you will become cold. Cotton is inappropriate as it does not wick moisture but rather stays wet. Try wearing Wool, Polypropylene, or Polar Fleece. Outer layers should be water repellent and wind proof. For this, nothing is better than Gore-Tex. • Anyone operating or riding on a snowmobile in New York State must wear an approved safety helmet except when operating on property owned by the operator or passenger. • Do not drink and drive. Alcohol is involved in 70% of snowmobiling related deaths. Alcoholic beverage consumption, combined with riding after dark are the leading causes of snowmobile related deaths. • Ensure headlights and taillights are working and free of snow.

PLATTSBURGH — Though their stories are different, the tie that binds Stephanie Orsmby and Ginger Zimmerman is that they never saw coming the serious heart problems they one day encountered. During the annual Go Red for Women dinner, hosted by the American Heart Association Jan. 19, Ormsby, a 54-year-old woman from Peru, and Zimmerman, a 47-yearold woman from Rochester, shared their heartfelt stories of what have been some of the scariest times in their lives. Ormsby was 49 years old when she was going about her day like any other, getting ready for her job as a teaching assistant at Peru Intermediate School. “I got up, I fed the dog, I took him out, checked my school e-mail, and made my lunch. Everything was fine,” she said. However, when she was making her bed, she felt “an intense, sharp burning pain” in her chest, between her shoulder blades and down the inside of her left arm. “At first I tried to ignore it, but something was telling me this was not normal,” Ormsby said. She called the school to say she wouldn’t be in that day, and then

called her husband, who rushed home from work to check on her. Soon, Ormsby found herself being transported to the hospital by ambulance. It was there she found out she had had a heart attack. It wasn’t long before she was wheeled into the operating room to have four stints placed into one of her heart’s arteries. “The artery was so small, that [the doctor] didn’t realize it was an artery at first. It was 100 percent plugged although there was no plaque in any other arteries,” she said. “To this day, they still don’t know what caused my heart attack. That is the scariest thing.” When Zimmerman was 32 years old, she was being treated for bronchitis when she began coughing up blood. It was then she realized there was more to her health problems. “I was desperate to find an answer,” Zimmerman said. “It was obvious something was terribly wrong.” When she visited a hospital emergency room, it was found she was having “full-blown congestive heart failure,” Zimmerman said. “My heart was functioning at barely 15 percent,” she said. When she asked her physician how long she had to live, offering a year as a suggestion, she was told she couldn’t even be promised an-

other day. “He then explained my only hope was heart transplant,” she said. Zimmerman went ahead with the procedure. When a heart was finally secure for her, Zimmerman’s husband, David, rushed to be by her side for the operation. He had been working in the Gulf of Mexico as an off-shore surveyor and had to take a helicopter flight out to reach her. However, the helicopter had to make an emergency landing along the way. “He actually arrived just minutes before I went into surgery,” recalled Zimmerman. But, something was not right. Zimmerman’s husband was showing signs of whiplash, though he downplayed it, she said. It wasn’t until Zimmerman was successfully out of her surgery she learned her husband suffered a tear to an artery in his brain — one that would be fatal. “David died nine days after my transplant,” she said. The loss of her husband left Zimmerman wondering if her new heart would have the strength to go on. “‘Could my new heart take this pain and grief,’” Zimmerman said she remembers asking herself. It did. In fact, Zimmerman has continued to exceed her doctors’ expectations of her to live only about

eight years after her surgery. “I’ve drawn on every ounce of faith and courage I had to get through this for our three young sons,” said Zimmerman, who noted it has now been 13 years since her surgery. Has it been easy over the years? Zimmerman will tell you no. “I know that I can’t I’ve each day in fear,” she said, adding it’s been cathartic for her to tell her story to others, in the hopes that they take seriously even the smallest sign of a health-related issue. “I’ve always thought of myself as a healthy person. I’ve always eaten healthy. My blood pressure and cholesterol have always been perfect. I have no family history and I don’t drink or smoke and my weight has been the same since high school,” said Ormsby. “But, at 49 years old, I had a heart attack.” ‘The most important thing that I’ve learned is how important knowledge of women’s heart health is,” said Ormsby. “Listen to your body. It could save your life.”

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-men By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com MORRISONVILLE — There’s no reason to be afraid of spiders — at least these ones. Jar ’d Spiders, a local grunge cover band, has been gaining popularity in the area over the past few years. The band was initially the brainchild of brothers Steven and Cody Stansbury of Peru, who had been playing lead guitar and drums, respectively, for years. Rhythm guitarist and vocalist Evan Ormsby of Schuyler Falls joined the two in 2006 and, soon after, bassist R.J. Reyell of Beekmantown came on board. Jar ’d Spiders was complete. However, that wasn’t always the band’s name. “When Steve and Cody originally started the band, they went under the name ‘Shades of Seven,’” explained Ormsby. “But, when the band began to grow into a more solid structure, they decided that with the addition of me they wanted a band name that represented all of us all as individuals as well as band members.” Jar ’d Spiders was a name the

Stansbury brothers felt best represented the way each felt because “we always felt like a spider in an aquarium, like we were just living everyday waiting to be fed and always watching from the inside out as the world moves by,” said Ormsby. “Everything changed when we got together and started playing on stage, we broke down the walls and unleashed the energy that we all had inside.” The band plays mainly covers, being greatly influenced by the ‘90s Seattle grunge scene that faded away with the untimely death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Grunge acts like Nirvana, Bush, The Foo Fighters, and Mudhoney and punk acts like The Ramones and the early years of Green Day have inspired the musical style of Jar ’d Spiders. Heavy metal and rock acts like Pantera and Avenged Sevenfold have also lent inspiration to them, said Ormsby. “I feel our music greatly stands out, because the music scene around here consists of many great metal, country, and rock bands, but grunge is a generation that grew up and disappeared, but in our hearts it never went anywhere,” he said.

The band’s first gig was at the former Koinonia Center on Elm Street back in 2007, playing with a few other local bands, said Ormsby. “Even though there was only like seven or eight people there, those few people were really enjoying our music,” he said. “Seeing people dancing because of what we were playing was a great feeling for us and it gave us the confidence to be the band we are today.” Since then, Jar ’d Spiders has played other smaller venues like the Veteran of Foreign Wars Post 1466 in Beekmantown and Marrow’s Store in Altona, but has even been offered to play a few showcase shows at

Higher Ground in Burlington, Vt., “Which is a huge honor for us,” said Ormsby. However, the four still really enjoy playing this side of the lake, he added. “As a band, we all aspire to branch out and get our name spread to other places and other people, but Plattsburgh is our home and the people here are our friends,” said Ormsby. “It is a small town but it makes being heard easy, and it is always awesome when we look out and see all of our families listening to us and dancing to our music because its all of our families that supported us and help us get gigs as

well as get to them. Without our families, we would not be the band we are today.” The band is still trying to find its “musical footing,” said Ormsby, with the hopes of one day recording an album of their own music, but until then, the four are “very content” with where they are as a band. What has them excited, though, is an upcoming show at Cocktails in Morrisonville, where they’ll be joined by bands like Muffy and the Schwettbutts, Sappy, and others. “We’re all very excited to be in charge of putting on such a new event,” said Ormsby, adding the idea is to reestablish a grunge rock following. “It is a change in the known music scene because a majority of the world has forgotten about grunge, and the bands that made the ‘90s so unique ... Sure, grunge bands are not in huge demand, but we hope that with the more shows we schedule, the more popular they will be in the future.” (Editor’s Note: Jar’d Spiders will perform at Cocktails next Saturday, Feb. 5, from 2 to 8 p.m. Check out the band on-line on MySpace and ReverbNation.)

Craft show returns to help Order of the Eastern Star By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Two chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star will be hosting a Valentine Craft Show to help raise money for various causes. The two chapters, Miramichi in West Chazy and Mount Hermon in Ellenburg, will be working together for the craft show, which will be held Saturday, Feb. 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the American Legion Post 20 on Quarry Road. “We did this last year at the same place and it worked out for us,” said Miramichi member and organizer Priscilla Rathbun. “So we’re trying it again.” Rathbun explained the OES main home and campus is in Oriskany, and they are fighting to keep it open. “Our job is just to keep that home,” she said. “They have lost quite a bit of money. We had investments, when the stock market went down. Each of the chapters throughout New York State, different ones have been putting different things on to help with that.”

However, OES raises money for many other causes as well. “We support the wounded veterans’ organization, this year our special fundraiser is for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, which is for finding a cure for childhood cancer,” explained Marcia Boling, member and organizer with Mount Hermon. This year there are already 21 tables signed up, including people selling jewelry, quilts, watercolors and candles. Rathbun’s husband, Robert Rathbun, a former shop teacher at Chazy Central Rural School, will also be selling his wooden creations. “It’s a very good variety,” said Boling. If interested in being a part of the craft show, contact Boling at 425-0157. “It’s an opportunity to show their work and to meet other crafters,” she said. “There’s a lot of hospitality and friendliness amongst the people who are there and I think [people] would enjoy seeing the different crafts,” added Rathbun. The craft show will also feature baskets to be raffled off, including a wine basket, book basket, and breakfast basket. Tickets are one for $1 or eight for $5.

Healthy Schools

North Countryman - 15

Hearing Aids?

Healthy Schools NY program. The grant will benefit Clinton, Franklin, Essex and Hamilton counties, “to help schools develop comprehensive health and wellness policies in the areas of tobacco, physical activity, and nutrition,” Derusha explained. She has already begun to work with Northern Adirondack Central and Peru Central in Clinton County; AuSable Valley School in Essex County; Malone Central in Franklin County; and are hoping to begin work with Wells Central School in Hamilton County. “What we do is we go in and take a look at the policies they have now and try to see what we can do to make those policies stronger,” said Derusha. “We’ve seen the obesity rate in children, as well as adults, in this country rising and that’s happening in New York State, just like everywhere else. So we want to address that.” In terms of physical activity, although it is a state mandate to meet certain requirements, Derusha said some schools are unable to do so. “With everything else they’ve got do and staffing and budget issues that come into play with that,” she said. “So it can be difficult.” Derusha said some mini-grants should be available for the schools to help with these types of issues. The overall goal of the program is chronic disease prevention — changing the habits while the students are still young, to avoid serious health issues in the future. “We know that things like heart disease and stroke and cancer and diabetes ... they’re all linked to lack of physical activity, poor nutrition and tobacco use,” explained Derusha. “If we can eliminate those major risk factors, we would see an 80 percent decrease in heart disease, 80 percent decrease in stroke, 80 percent decrease in type II diabetes, and a 40 percent decrease in cancer.” However, some of the health problems are already being seen in youngsters. “We’re starting to see type II diabetes, which used to only be seen in adults, we’re starting to see that in young people now,” she said. “So even though there are medications, that’s not the way we want to see people going at such a young age.” Schools were contacted by CCHD to complete a survey. Derusha said the current schools working with the program were chosen by that survey, but all schools have the option to take part. For more information, contact Derusha at 565-4993.

DON’T BE A PARTY TO TEENAGE DRINKING. IT’S AGAINST THE LAW. Cam Brown of Ticonderoga and her nephew, Kyle Murphy of Peru, look on as Connor LaMora, a patient at CVPH Medical Center’s Alice T. Miner Center for Women and Children, holds a Beanie Baby he received. The stuffed animal was from a collection once owned by Brown’s mother, the late Gracelyn C. Murphy.

PLATTSBURGH — When Gracelyn C. Murphy lost her courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer four years ago, little did she know she’d leave behind a gift that would help bring smiles to the faces of many children. Murphy’s collection of hundreds of Ty Beanie Babies, which she had been assembling for several years until she passed away in October 2006, was given to CVPH Medical Center last year. The posthumous donation was one that was ultimately decided would help ease the nerves of children in the hospital’s Alice T. Miner Center for Women and Children. Children who visit the pediatrics unit, explained director Maria Hayes, are sometimes nervous, and having a friend as small as a Beanie Baby can make a world of difference. “When a child comes into a hospital, they can be so scared,” said Hayes. “There are so many people who are strangers to them. They can get stuck with needles. So, any type of normalcy we can introduce to make them feel better is great.” The trove of small, stuffed animals, hasn’t run out even several months after the donation was given to the hospital, said Hayes. That means a lot to Murphy’s daughter, Cam Brown of Ticonderoga. “When my mother passed away four years ago, she had these large Rubbermaid totes, filled with Beanie Babies,” recalled Brown. “She was always buying Beanie Babies. I remember when my niece was little, she would spend summers with my mom and they’d just go shopping for Beanie Babies.” “When they would come visit me in Ticonderoga, they would need to go to Chestertown because there might be Beanie Babies there that they wouldn’t have in Plattsburgh,” she added.

Knowing the dedication and heart her mother put into the collection and how the collection today continues to help children is something that means the world to Brown. “My mother was a bus driver. She loved kids. She had three of her own and four grandchildren,” said Brown. “We were her world. I know that she would be really excited about the fact her Beanie Babies are being used to touch the lives of children.” The Beanie Babies also serve a special function in the hospital’s nursery, where smaller babies can be positioned in their hospital carts using the tiny stuffed animals as pillows, said Hayes. “They’re the only product that can go through the sterilization process,” said Hayes, who once worked in a tertiary facility with a 46-bed neonatal intensive care unit, where Beanie Babies were used on a regular basis, on a larger scale. “So, a donation of Beanie Babies is phenomenal. And, any donation we get that can put a smile on a child’s face, especially a sick child, means the world.” “It means a lot to see that whether it’s through us children, her grandchildren, or the things that she has done, like this, that she can impact lives, even though she’s not here anymore,” Brown said of her mother. “It’s the legacy she left.”

Samuel de Champlain documentary earns national recognition By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

Colin Powers, director of production and programming for Mountain Lake PBS, left, accepts the National Educational Telecommunications Association Award for Content Production for “Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America.” Photo submitted

PLATTSBURGH — Mountain Lake PBS has received a national award for “Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America.” The public television station won its first National Educational Telecommunications Association Award for Content Production for the 2010 documentary during NETA’s annual conference held recently in Nashville, Tenn. Colin Powers, director of production and programming for Mountain Lake PBS, accepted the award on behalf of the local PBS station, calling its an honor “coming from a group of peers in the television industry. “I was happy to be the face of the station accepting the award,” he said. “I was certainly involved in every aspect of the project, but I accepted it on behalf of the dozens of people here and our partnering organizations who made this happen. You don’t do a production of any scale without a lot of teamwork and when you get into this kind of complexity, it’s a big, big collaboration with a lot of people.” “Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America,” is an hour-long, state-of-the-art animated documentary produced by Mountain Lake PBS detailing the exploration of

North America by Frenchman Samuel de Champlain. The project — produced in recognition of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial marked last year — was a bold leap for Mountain Lake PBS, which has traditionally produced documentaries featuring live actors, said Powers. “This was really stepping out for PBS into an area that it hasn’t typically addressed,” he said. “The key was to do that without turning off our more mature audiences who are used to a reenactment-type documentary.” “The response has been very enthusiastic,” he added. The advantage of producing an animated documentary, said Powers, was that it gave creators more creative license with putting people back in the time of Champlain during the early 1600s. “It had much more attention to detail than we would have ever been able to do if we had reenacted it,” said Powers. “Everything you see in the film has been meticulously researched and crosschecked, whether it’s the exact firearms being used or the utensils or the buildings themselves or even more subtle things like body types.” The advantage of an animated documentary could also be felt in that station’s pockets, said Powers.

“If we were to have done this as a live action production, we would be talking many millions of dollars,” he said. “We produced this film for less than a half-million dollars and in under a year.” NETA commended Mountain Lake PBS for combining its documentary with a bilingual companion Web site, www.champlaininamerica.org, which contains lesson plans which meet New York State and National Learning Standards to assist teachers in using “Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America” in the classroom. “From the very beginning, we recognized we were going to be able to do much, much more and go into much greater depth on the Web site than we were ever going to be able to do in an hour,” said Powers. Combining the documentary with the Web site and a writing contest for students during the Quadricentennial has helped paint an overall picture of how Champlain has had a lasting impact on the region, said Powers. “Champlain’s story is one we can’t celebrate enough,” said Powers. “It needs to constantly be trumpeted.” (Editor ’s Note: “Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America” is available for $19.95 through Mountain Lake PBS by visiting www.mountainlake.org or www.champlaininamerica.org.)

New soccer season will bring two-year ‘uber-league’ trial By Keith Lobdell keith@denpubs.com CHAZY/WILLSBORO — Taking a page from the highly successful merger between the Section VII and Section X football teams, the Mountain and Valley and Champlain Valley Athletic Conference (MVAC) will merge leagues for the 2011-12 soccer season. The two-year trial was developed through Section VII soccer chairman Rob McAuliffe, head coach of the state champion Chazy boys soccer team. “There could be some tweaks, but the formation of the schedule is done and the proposal has been approved by both the MVAC, CVAC and Section VII,” McAuliffe said. “I put a proposal together in the spring and shared it with other schools because we thought that this was a way to solve some of the problems the section was having.” McAuliffe said two main concerns included the declining enrollment in some schools that forced either consolidation or elimination of soccer programs and the lack of competitive balance in certain divisions within the MVAC and CVAC. “One of the big points was the level of

CVAC, MVAC school to join together for 2011-12 competition in both leagues,” McAuliffe said. “Both leagues were experiencing some very lop-sided scores. Under this new format, you get schools playing schools of similar size and ability.” The new soccer uber-league will have three divisions, the first comprising of all Class B teams (AuSable Valley, Beekmantown, Northeastern Clinton, Peru, Plattsburgh, Saranac and Saranac Lake), the second of northern Class C and Class D programs (Lake Placid, Northern Adirondack, Seton Catholic, Chazy, ElizabethtownLewis, Willsboro and Westport for boys; Lake Placid, Northern Adirondack, Seton Catholic, Ticonderoga, Moriah, Chazy, Elizabethtown-Lewis and Willsboro for girls) and a third division of southern Class D schools (Crown Point, Indian Lake/Long Lake, Johnsburg, Keene, Minerva/Newcomb, Schroon Lake and Wells for boys; Crown Point, Indian Lake/Long Lake, Westport, Keene, Minerva/Newcomb, Schroon Lake and Wells for girls). Westport moves from Division II to Division III in girls soc-

cer to make room for Moriah and Ticonderoga, who do not have boys soccer programs. “We are looking to see if the geographical schedule is going to work,” Karen Lopez, director of Section VII, said. “There is a hope that this new league is going to save on transportation and time both on the bus and away from school for the districts.” “I think that this is going to be great,” Steven Broadwell, Willsboro Central School superintendent and president of the MVAC said. “This shows a collaborative effort between all of the schools in the north country that looked at this in terms of the best interests of soccer in the region, and I think that this is going to be very good for the sport in this area.” McAuliffe said that the new league format will also ensure that teams will have enough games to fill out a schedule. “Many MVAC schools were having trouble getting games outside the league schedule,” McAuliffe said. “This will give all teams a solid schedule of around 14 games. As a whole, this is the best thing for our sec-

tional soccer teams.” Lopez said that the two-year trial for the new soccer league is similar to what the section did when it went into a partnership with Section X to create the Northern Conference for football, which has sent several teams deep in to the regional playoffs, including two-time state finalist Moriah and state finalist Ticonderoga. “We will look at this at the end of two years and see if it has done everything that we were looking to accomplish,” Lopez said. “We are at the point where we wanted to try this because a lot of the benefits do make sense. This is a healthy thing to look at for the section and for our school districts.” The new schedule would not feature any league championship games, with division titles determined only by the record within the set league schedule. Seeding for the Class B and Class C soccer tournaments would be determined by games within their own classification. “We are still working out things like how all star teams would be assigned and how tiebreakers would be handled, but we are excited for this upcoming season,” McAuliffe said.

MVAC to return to two-division format for basketball, spring ball By Keith Lobdell keith@denpubs.com WILLSBORO — The days of three-division format in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference (MVAC) will soon be a memory. The MVAC will return to a two-division format with the coming 2011-12 season, with the exception of the fall soccer season, which will be part of the new merged league between the MVAC and Champlain Valley Athletic League (CVAC).

“It will be a little different than before, but we are going back to the two-division format,” said Steven Broadwell, Willsboro Central School Superintendent and President of the MVAC. “There has been a lot of compromise and a lot of forethought that goes into the scheduling of the season and in the decision to go back to the two-division league.” In basketball, Division I will include Lake Placid for boys, along with Chazy, Willsboro, Westport, Elizabethtown-Lewis and Schroon Lake. Division II would include Crown Point, Indian Lake/Long Lake, Keene,

Johnsburg, Minerva-Newcomb and Wells. During baseball and softball season, Crown Point would jump from Division II to Division I. Teams would play two games versus division opponents and one game versus the non-divisional teams for a 16-game regular season schedule in basketball and a 13 games regular season schedule in baseball and softball. Broadwell said that part of the change came from declining school enrollments forcing the elimination of some programs by

schools. “When you have only two schools with a team in a division, then that’s really not a division,” Broadwell said. “This change was a necessity based on the fact that we had schools that were not fielding teams.” Broadwell said that the league is still looking at whether or not they would continue the practice of having a league championship game. “Overall, the changes we have made have been good for the MVAC schools collectively,” Broadwell said.

Clinton County educators discuss bullying with community By Renee Cumm renee@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — What does bullying really mean? That’s precisely what a panel of Clinton County educators, mental health officials and community members gathered to discuss Jan. 19. The group gathered at the West Side Ballroom to talk about the definition of bullying and how the community, as well as educators, can come together to prevent it. The discussion, dubbed “Bullying: A Community Conversation,” was sponsored by The Mobilization for Action through Planning and Partnership/Mental Health Community Education Committee and Champlain Valley Physician’s Hospital. MAPP began as a group that mostly worked with suicide-related issues, but found a correlation between suicidal depressions and bullying,

Behavioral Health Services and MAPP committee member Bonnie Black said. “Bullying was some place we needed to go eventually,” said Black. Black said those who are bullied usually have a thin shell against negative attention. “It’s a wound to the heart, the soul, the ego,” she said. She also provided a definition in her slide show of bullying that stated it as a repeated negative action towards one or more people who have a hard time defending themselves. Although the presentation mostly focused on bullying in schools, bullying is everywhere and can happen directly to a person or through electronic devices, such as computers and cell phones. Bullying can happen in schools, in the work place, and in the home, so everyone has to take action to stop it, Black said. “This is not just schools, this is not just health providers, it’s the parent’s [responsibility],” she said.

According to the health officials and educators involved, more action has been taken against bullying since the first lecture in October 2009. Some progress has been made, but it’s has been a complicated task for everyone involved. “We are all learning in the process,” Beekmantown Central School counselor Dan Bobbett said. The lecture ended with open forum when audience members asked the panel of educators from Beekmantown, Keeseville and Plattsburgh schools questions related to school policies against bullying. The educators agreed bullying has been an issue for students at any age. “This is not just a middle school and high school problem,” said Keeseville Elementary School principal Kevin Hulbert. The entire panel advocated listening to the students and utilizing mental health surveys in the classroom that can identify students mental perspectives.

The problem has not only worried educators and mental health officials, but parents as well. Marla Wolkowicz, president of the Plattsburgh High School Community School Organization, said concerned parents should talk to other parents who may have had similar experiences. She said parents should come together and stand up for the child being bullied. “Give them a sense of self and reassure them we are here,” she said. “We are all in the situation together, and we all want the same outcome.” However, bullying can be hard to immediately identify, Bobbett said. “A bully thrives on secrecy. Until we can break that code of silence, we are not going to be able to intervene,” he explained. “Sometimes you have no idea why a student is behaving this way, and neither do they.” For more information about bullying, contact the Clinton County Health Department at 5654840.

PLEASE HELP! My children’s hearts are broken. Our Sunshine has been missing since November 23, 2010, the same day that our dog Shady staggered into our home bleeding from the head and mouth, dying from wounds inflicted by a hollow shell bullet. Its is bad enough to loose a member of our family but to never find the body of the other is cruel. Please help us put Sunshine to rest humanely with closure for my children and I, and so we know, at least in death she has the dignity she rightfully deserves. Sunshine is a german shepard/golden retreiver mix. Her color is brindle and she has a bobbed tail. We hope and pray still a friendly dog. Please help us have a New Year miracle. If you know of her whereabouts, please call us at 802-349-3489. Last seen at Silver Hill Road, Witherbee on the morning of November 23rd.
