CVPH board reports fiscal, employment growth in 2010 PLATTSBURGH — The annual meeting of the CVPH Medical Center board of directors reported considerable progress made in 2010. The hospital provided care for more people than ever before last year, crediting the increase in services to growth in outpatient volumes. Inpatient admissions and patient days were up slightly. Heart Center utilization by people from throughout a four-county region continued to increase with an 18 percent growth in procedures compared to 2009. The theme of the meeting, attended by more than 120 area leaders who are members of the CVPH Corporation, focused on health reform and the quest for value. According to CVPH president and chief executive officer Stephens Mundy, hospitals across New York need to under-

go a transformation in order to succeed in the future. “I’m happy to be able to say that we have already done considerable work to be ready for health-care reform whether it’s been improving quality, reducing cost or collaborating with the Adirondack Region Medical Home,” Mundy said. Mundy also mentioned a focus on ongoing employee education and training in partnership with local colleges as an important strategy in preparing for tomorrow. On an average day at CVPH in 2010, a total of 1,189 patients were treated. This included an inpatient census of 276, 139 emergency visits, 58 surgeries, 190 Diagnostic Center visits, 65 clinic visits and three births. Thanks to a one-time payment of $5.6 million by Medicare

going back to 2006, CVPH experienced an operating margin of $7,934,925 on revenues of $277,927,817. This represented an operating margin of 2.9 percent. Without the Medicare adjustment the operating margin would have been 0.9 percent. In 2010, employment increased by 66 full-time equivalent employees. Twenty new physicians were recruited to the CVPH medical staff. Over the past 10 years, the workforce at CVPH has grown by 22 percent, with almost 2,300 people now on the payroll, making CVPH the largest employer in the region. Robert Smith of Nine Platt Hospitality Group was elected to the CVPH board of directors. He replaces Clinton County Clerk John Zurlo, whose term expired. John Massella of Massella & Associates chairs the 15-member board.

Meeting the needs of special needs patients More than 70 emergency responders receive specialized training

By Jeremiah S. Papineau KEESEVILLE — When heading to a call, emergency responders don’t always know what to expect. That’s why Kent Faus works with a core team of volunteers to provide training for their fellow emergency medical service providers. Since 2009, Morrisonville Ambulance Service has sponsored a “Patients with Special Needs Conference” to provide specialized training for emergency personnel, and this year was no exception. Faus, who serves as EMS captain for the Morrisonville rescue squad, said the goal is to provide better insight into the vast health issues and psychological conditions of patients with special

needs. “The purpose is to learn more about people we don’t deal with on a continuous basis,” said Faus. The challenge of delivering emergency medical care can be enough on its own, but working with a severely autistic patient or one with special medical needs can be difficult if responders don’t know in advance how to deliver appropriate care or be prepared for severe behavior issues. “There are certain clientele that we deal with that we don’t know a lot about; we don’t have a lot of training on,” said Faus, adding mainstream EMS training only gives a “snapshot” of handling patients with Alzheimer ’s disease, cystic fibrosis and

The importance of strength training for women M

any women want to start strength training because they hear about all the benefits, but they don’t know where to start, or if they are doing it correctly. Some just need the motivation of having someone else coach them or from being in a group environment. It’s important to build up to using heavier weights and/or more challenging exercises, which is essential for building lean muscle. Not to be confused with bulky muscles, which women just do not have the hormones to build naturally. Increasing your lean muscle mass is important in many ways. For one, as you age, your lean muscle mass naturally starts to decline. When this happens, your

body fat levels rise and your metabolism slows down. This can also happen as a result of dieting. If you are not eating enough calories to meet your basic metabolic needs, your body starts to use your muscle for fuel, which decreases your lean muscle mass, causing your body fat levels to rise and your metabolism to slow. This hits most middle-aged women with a double weight loss disaster. You can not healthfully alter your body composition by doing endless hours of cardio and dieting! You will ultimately be setting yourself up for failure. You must have a balanced combination of strength training, cardio, and nutrition, to see the results that will help to improve your health, and achieve that lean, firm body that you’re after.

It’s also important to take regular body fat measurements to make sure you are on the right track. Why body fat and not weight? Well when you are strength training you are building lean muscle which weighs more than fat, so the scale is not the most reliable way to measure your progress. If the numbers are not moving in the right direction, you will know right away that you will need to take a look at what you are eating, and if you are sticking to the program, and make some changes from there. Women On Weights is a progressive strength training program for

women I have developed to help teach women about strength training and its benefits. The class is perfect for anyone wanting to get in great shape — beginners and experienced exercisers alike — while learning a safe and healthy way to go about it. Classes now offer nutritional guidance along the way, with an on-line menu and activity planner participants will have access to for free. However, this class is not just for middle age women — teens ages 16 and older are welcome to

join and will see the same benefits. Class numbers are kept low to assure proper supervision and more individual contact. The class fills up quickly and there are only a few spots left for the next class starting Tuesday, Feb. 8, so contact me as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

This is a total weight tournament open to those entering a total of 10 panfish, which can include any combination of perch, bluegill, sunfish or crappie. The contest is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday with an awards ceremony to immediately follow.

t appears the recent cold snap froze more than the water pipes in my home ... area lakes are buttoned up as well, like a fine Italian dress shirt. The lower end of Lake Champlain and nearly all its bays are now fishable, as is the majority of Lake George. The smaller lakes are well frozen, though some are difficult to navigate because of snow and slush. Popular fishing destinations like Lake Eaton, Long Lake, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Eagle Lake, Paradox Lake, Brant Lake and Schroon Lake also hold fishable ice. As a result, a handful of ice fishing tournaments loom in the region, including those in Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, Schroon Lake, Hague and Pilot Knob.

Tax prep software and you Legal news of note for seniors T D

riving down Cornelia Street last week, I was reminded by the friendly person in the funny green outfit that tax season is here yet again. Using a local business to complete the chore is one way to accomplish things; another way is to do it yourself with readily available software. I wrote about this first product last year after using it for a number of years. It’s an on-line product called “Tax Act” from 2nd Story Software. When I first used the service it offered completely free federal and state tax prep and only required payment if I wanted to e-file. The process proved to be easy and it contributed additional dollars to my refund due to a deduction I was not aware of. So, I paid the less than $20 fee, got a quick two-week refund via e-filing, and never looked back. Tax Act is easy to use and requires nothing be installed on the PC. It operates over a secure http connection similar to online retail sites. A user can start a return and go as far as desired before logging off. Secure Tax Act servers will

save all work accomplished and allow easy access to the point where preparation ended. Users returning from the previous year can have all pertinent information imported into the new tax return saving even more time. Find Tax Act online at TurboTax is another service that has gained By Ron Poland a following and while I have personally never used it I’m sure it works equally as well as Tax Act. The key to both services is the straight-forward questioning that allows the software to provide qualified deductions or credits for the user. It takes the frustration out of interpreting IRS instructions. The services work for both personal and small business returns. 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.

Medicaid: In February 2011 there will be a full 5-year look back for all gifts given by any applicant for Medicaid (with a few limited exceptions). Don’t throw away your bank records, financial statements, tax returns, and other financial records, until they are more than 5 years old. Power of Attorney: There is a new Power of Attorney law that came into effect as of Sept. 12, 2010, which superseded the previous law that went into effect in September 2009. Under the new law, any previous signed power of attorney is still valid (but only if signed and notarized before the Sept. 12). If you haven’t checked for a while, be sure you still have your original Power of Attorney in a good, secure and fireproof place. If you need to draft a new Power of Attorney, be sure that you use the form dated effective Sept. 12.

Events remind us that respect is key to tolerance for a period, every time he would see me, he would grab me by the shoulders and throw me to the ground. And I wasn’t the only one who suffered this ritual fate. I didn’t know him, nor did I ever have a run-in with him before this started, but being larger and tougher in appearance than me at the time, I had no choice but to brush myself off and try my best to steer clear of him on the playground at recess. Then one day he approached me, and as I prepared to bite the dust, he stopped, apologized and asked if we could be friends. At the time it seemed like a great alternative to not being friends. As we palled around, I discovered we had many differences and oddly enough he was an atheist going to a Catholic school. On occasion, the kid would eat dog or cat food. Gainesburgers had recently been introduced and I recall he considered them a delicacy. Despite his encouragement, there was no way I was putting that stuff to my lips. We would talk about religious beliefs, and while we never swayed each other, it never seemed to matter to either of us. I later learned more about the difficult life and poverty his family experienced. As we fast forward to 2011, I can’t help but wonder why we can’t accept the differences among us and be more tolerant of each other. As a young child, I was able to accept people for who they were with no strings attached. But

Planting your bare root tree


eed catalogs for the 2011 planting season are currently available, making all the northern gardeners long for the spring gardening season. Looking at seed catalogs in they winter is almost like going on mini-vacation. Did you know that more than just flower and vegetable seeds can be ordered through a catalog? Many fruit trees and shade trees can be shipped through the mail as bare-root stock. Bare-root trees are dug from the ground when the tree is dormant. Then, the dirt is shaken off and the trees are stored cool storage until they are shipped out. There are many advantages to purchasing trees that are bare-root. Because soil is heavy, container-grown and balled and burlapped trees are more expensive than bare root trees. Buying a bare root stock can save you between 30 and 60 percent. Bare root trees can have up to 200 percent more roots than balled and burlapped or container trees. This helps the bare root trees establish faster and grow better the first few years after transplanting. Finally, bare root trees are light. Most of the weight of a transplant comes from the soil in the container. This makes moving and planting a bare root trees easy.

Working with bare root trees does have some disadvantages. Because the trees do not have soil on their roots, the roots can dry out and die. Depending on the amount of root death, the entire tree can die. The key to success is to make sure the tree never dries out. To help ensure success, order your trees during the winter and late spring. Once the trees arrive, dip the tree roots in a slurry of hydrogel (a synthetic water-absorbing compound) then store the trees in a large, pleated plastic bag until planting. If no hydrogel is used, soak the trees in water for 12-24 hours and immediately plant. Until you can plant them keep the trees covered, shaded, and moist until actually put into the ground. With all the benefits it’s no wonder why many nurseries sell out early. If you choose to buy on-line or via mail-order make sure you buy from a reputable company that offers reasonable guarantees and money-back offers in case they don’t send you quality.

more and more these days people seem to be confusing freedoms with an entitlement to control. We hear stuff like, “I’m entitled to have whatever I want and anyone who stands in the way of my choices will just have to change their ways because this is MY America and anything that I find opposed to MY Way of Life must be wrong!” The Bill of Rights guarantees us certain freedoms, among them the right to assemble, to speak freely, to respect the establishment and practice of religion, to be secure in our homes and to not unduly deny the rights of others. But these laws designed to protect the freedoms of all are being used by a few who find some actions or activities offensive to their beliefs. In Essex County government, some find a short prayer before the session offensive. In Tupper Lake, despite strong community support, we see environmental groups blocking needed economic development proposed by the Adirondack Club. Last year, we saw some of the same groups behind blocking the development on the Lewis Family Farm in Essex. There are many things going on all around us that some find offensive and yet others find very acceptable and that’s OK. We can and will have differences. It is those differences that make us strong and unique. But there are big differences between offending actions and seeking to control everything

you see, hear and want. You might be offended by hearing a prayer. So come to the meeting a few minutes late or close your eyes and listen to your iPod… you’ll survive the experience. You might be offended that in this tiny hamlet of Tupper Lake a resort club and homes will be built, people will have jobs, storefronts will be a filled, and money will again flow through this once prominent community improving the quality of life for those who make this area their home… you’ll survive if they build it, while many may not survive if it doesn’t get built. Last week I attended the Bullying Discussion hosted by MAPP. The discussion focused on bullying in our schools. We heard about local statistics, watched a video that featured a number of children around the country who have been bullied because of simple and meaningless differences. Some have even been driven to commit suicide. Like my friend in grade school or the elderly janitor who taught me much about people, I didn’t have to agree with their beliefs or the things they did to accept them. Skin color, religious or political beliefs, mode of dress, color of your hair, where you choose to live or other life style choices ... there are plenty of days I shake my head at the actions of others who think and act differently than I, but, in the end, so long as they are doing no personal harm to anyone, I can respect their right to share this small world and enjoy the control, over their life choices, that I have the right to expect in my own life choices.

everal events have hit home with me recently, causing me pause and to reflect about the true meaning and impact they have, not only on my life, but the lives of all who share this small world we all call home. Perhaps like you, I pull from life experiences to draw perspective on current events. I thought back to my childhood upbringing. I was taught to respect the differences of others and to be tolerant of those around me, for they also had “rights,” In the early 1960s, my family moved from western Pennsylvania to the deep south, in Texas. Two situations crossed my mind. For those of you who may not have been around back then, the nation was dealing with severe racial issues and African Americans in our society had not yet achieved true equality. I recall after school I would hang around and help the African American janitor empty waste paper cans and sweep the floors. Our neighborhood wasn’t racially diverse, but I had no preconceived notions about such things. I must have been in second grade or so and no one was paying me or forcing me by way of punishment to be there. We came from very different backgrounds, but I recall enjoying his company. He was a nice man and we laughed and talked about the events of our day. Of course, I was pretty much oblivious to the racial issues, except for some cautioning by my parents. I didn’t know or care about the racial events swirling around. He accepted me and I him. About the same time I recall a school yard bully. He was about a year or two older than I, and

Souvenir book commemorates the year of the Quad By Sarah L. Cronk ROUSES POINT — It’s been more than a year since the region celebrated the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s travels through the area. Now a book commemorating the quadricentennial and the events that took place in the village of Rouses Point is available. Rouses Point-Champlain Historical Society president Geri Favreau, with the help of Elaine Rochester Cloutier, spent the past year not only putting together a souvenir book based on the quadricentennial, but adding information and photographs from the 1959 celebration and the tricentennial celebration in 1909. “There’s a couple from here in Rouses Point who has a very very nice book and had pictures from 1909 and an actual postcard,” Favreau said. Favreau also received copies of programs from the 1909 celebration, as well as information from the 1955 book by John Ross, “This Happened Here: The Story of the Lake Champlain Territory.” The 40-page, full color book, printed by Border Press in Rouses Point, also features copies of newspaper articles from The North Countryman, The Press-Republican, and the former Plattsburgh Sentinel, for all three celebrations in the last century.

“When I was trying to put together the quad events, I was curious to see what had been done in previous years,” Favreau said. “I wanted to make sure there was a record of what we had done here in Rouses Point for 2009 for use by people in 50 years, or a hundred years or 200 years.” There is also a list of all the events and photographs of what took place in Rouses Point during the quad, including the Mystery Girl Contest and the visit by the Lois McClure. “I had a lot of pictures from 2009 and we couldn’t use them all, you just can’t,” Favreau said. She also took the time to try to identify as many people in the photographs as possible. “We put names under the pictures, because I think that’s very important,” Favreau said. “When I look back, I like to know who I’m looking at.” The proceeds from the souvenir book, priced at $30, will benefit the Rouses Point-Champlain Historical Society. Copies of the book can be purchased at Cornerstone Drug & Gift in Rouses Point,by calling Favreau at 297-2064, or by calling Mary Racicot at 297-6138. “We think it’s beautiful,” she said.

WILMINGTON — The North Country Chamber of Commerce and Whiteface Region Business and Tourism Center have signed a partnership agreement that is believed will benefit both organizations. The agreement — signed during a Jan. 27 meeting between the two organizations at the Adirondack Holiday Lodge — is one that has come to fruition after much interest, said WRBTC president Susan Rose-Hockert. “This has been years in the making,” said Rose-Hockert. “The stumbling block has always been coming up with an exchange of value.” NCCC president Garry F. Douglas said the “exchange of value” is how the partnership would be mutually beneficial to both parties. With the Plattsburgh-based chamber of commerce offering its clout as a more than 4,000member organization that actively lobbies government officials, it was important to determine what the WRBTC could offer in return, he said. “With this partnership, we’re getting what we want for regional purposes — stronger advocacy, stronger support for economic development, more capacity for services ... and [WRBTC members] are getting access to services they haven’t been able to offer with smaller numbers,” said Douglas. The WRBTC’s membership remained relatively stagnant in recent years, hovering around the 100-member mark, said Rose-Hockert. However, after retooling their membership structure, the WRBTC made it more affordable for start-up businesses to join, she said, thereby making their organization more attractive to the NCCC for adding to their own membership. “We’re up to about 125 members, which for us, is a lot,” said Rose-Hockert, who noted the effect is considerable considering the change was only made in the last year. “Our membership has grown very quickly in the past year and


we expect it to increase even more this year.” Having a stronger partnering organization like the WRBTC is something that will ultimately help give the NCCC “the capacity to do effective government affairs” and “engage in economic development and marketing” to really value and service to its members, said Douglas. “It’s also important to have strong community chambers and associations who do what they do, focusing on the localized issues like marketing, tourism services, hosting local events and services,” added Douglas. Under the terms of the agreement, a working relationship between the NCCC and WRBTC will “enhance the availability and delivery of business support services in the Whiteface Region Business and Tourism Center and simultaneously promote economic development and excellence in the greater North Country region.” The NCCC now gives the WRBTC full access to its available health insurance plans, representation in regional economic development and government affairs endeavors and inclusion in the North Country Energy Alliance, which offers discounted rates on New York State Electric and Gas and National Grid, among other benefits. “The information and services that are now available to us and our members is absolutely incredible,” said Rose-Hockert. The partnership with the WRBTC is the latest for the Plattsburgh chamber of commerce. The first was with the Lake Placid-Essex County Visitors Bureau, now the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism. Since then, the chamber has signed agreements with chambers of commerce in Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, Ticonderoga, Schroon Lake, North Warren, Malone, Indian Lake and the Adirondacks Speculator Region. “We are now one of the four largest business associations in the State of New York,” said Douglas. “I think we have a nice family now that takes us to where we want to be in terms of bringing the business community together within that economic region.”

Michele Menard, businesses honored by chamber PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Chamber of Commerce has named Michelle Menard of Casella/Northern Sanitation its 2010 Volunteer of the Year. Menard was honored during the chamber ’s annual dinner Jan. 28 at the West Side Ballroom. She was recognized for being a volunteer for the chamber as a board member since 2007 who has also devoted “countless hours” to many organizations in the community including the Foundation of CVPH, Plattsburgh Lions Club, and Plattsburgh Elks Lodge, among others. “Michelle is the most compassionate and generous person I know,” said chamber vice president Jody Parks. “She is always the first person to offer help in any situation and she truly cares

about the people in our community.” “Her positive attitude is contagious and without even knowing it, she motivates others to get involved as well,” she added. Whether it is organizing the Polar Plunge, raising money for countless organizations, or supporting visionary projects like the Destination Master Plan, Menard’s “energy, enthusiasm and skill are unsurpassed,” said Parks. “This was just one of the most remarkable times in my life,” said Menard. “I’m just shocked. I’m very proud to be part of this community.” The presentation was bittersweet as it was also one of the last functions Menard will attend locally for some time as she

and her husband, Kevin, are moving to Port Orange, Fla., where they will be closer to her mother and brother. “We’re going to be coming back to the community to visit. It’s been a tough decision, but it’s at a time when I’m needed by my family. We hope to be back.” “Shelly has made a huge difference in the lives of so many people in the North Country,” said Parks. “We wish her the best of luck in her new community.” In addition to Menard, the chamber recognized the following: Business of the Year — PrimeLink; Business Person of the Year — Terry Meron; Small Business of the Year — Arnie’s Restaurant; Economic Development Partner — William Farber, Hamilton County Board of Supervisors Chairman.

He was also caught sleeping behind the wheel while parked on the side of the road. Additionally, Fee found that two other officers went home for several hours during their shifts, leaving their cruisers running idle in the driveway. Fee advised members of the Tupper Lake Village Board that each officer involved would receive an official warning. Mayor Mickey Desmarais said he considered the matter taken care of.

In Franklin County

Franklin County may look for lobbyist By Chris Morris MALONE — The Franklin County Board of Legislators is investigating the pros and cons of hiring a lobbyist to help the county secure federal funds for economic initiatives. A representative from Murray, Montgomery and O’Donnell — a legislative advocacy firm based in Washington, D.C. — visited with lawmakers in Malone last week. Kyriakos Pagonis told legislators his firm can develop relationships with insiders at federal agencies like the Department of Energy or the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Those partnerships, Pagonis said, can increase the likelihood that county grants will be approved. Franklin County Manager James Feeley said the board is looking to see if there is help available at the federal level to maintain vital services that may otherwise be lost to state funding costs.

He said a lobbyist could also help overcome regulatory and bureaucratic obstacles in Washington. Pagonis met with lawmakers last week at the urging of Tim Burpoe, who represents Franklin County Legislative District 7. Burpoe has taken some heat for suggesting that the county investigate hiring a legislative advocacy firm. Burpoe said a good legislator should seek more information on initiatives that could benefit the taxpayer. “We haven’t decided whether we’re going to do it or not,” he said. “But I’d like to get as much information as possible so my fellow legislators can make an informed decision.” James Feeley said a stronger voice in Washington could help the county when it comes to gaining radio frequencies from Canada to improve the Enhanced 911 system. He said a lobbyist could also help gain waivers for programmatic expenses, like the 53-11 program that finances the capital acquisition of buses for public transportation.

“That involves 80 percent federal funding and a 20 percent county share,” Feeley explained. “If we could persuade regulators that Franklin County – because of its socioeconomic situation – should have its portion waived, that would maintain a vital county service and drive down costs.” Feeley said projects like Patriot Hills at Saranac Lake could also benefit from a lobbying firm. But he notes that the county has made no decision and is merely investigating. Burpoe said it’s worth learning the pros and cons of utilizing a lobbying firm. “If we have to spend $40,000 on a lobbyist, but we generate $1 million in grants or funding, is it worth it?” he said. “Would it be worth it for $500,000? For $100,000? Those are the questions we should be asking and assessing whether or not we want to take that chance.” Burpoe said the county will entertain RFPs from legislative advocacy groups in order to ascertain how much it would cost to hire a lobbying firm.

Plattsburgh International poised for expansion Study to determine need almost complete

By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Further expansion at Plattsburgh’s bustling International Airport is moving closer to reality. Deputy county administrator Rodney L. Brown said a feasibility study approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is near completion which will determine if the projected number of passengers over the next 20 years will warrant an expansion of the airport terminal and its services. The study, which has been conducted over the last eight months, revealed the number of people who use the airport has grown steadily over the past three years. This year, more than 100,000 people are estimated to use the facility. “The forecast more than doubles our enplanements in the next five years alone,” Brown said. Though the study is not yet complete, the Clinton County Legislature is comfortable the results will be in favor of expanding the facility, Brown said, and has enlisted the services of engineering firm

McFarland Johnson of Binghamton. The firm is currently drawing up preliminary plans, which, as Brown stated, is more difficult than building a terminal “from scratch.” “Because, now you have operations going on that are going to be disrupted,” Brown said. “And, you want to make sure whoever is going to be doing this design and overseeing the construction has enough expertise to make sure that the disruption is going to be minimized to the greatest extent possible. The improvement project would expand the baggage carousel system, increase the number of Transportation Security Administration checkpoints from one to at least three, and roughly quadruple the number of ticket counters, of which there are currently three. The project would also add an additional jet bridge to help with the loading and unloading of passengers. “We’re having a problem now when we’re getting two or three flights in at the same time that we can’t unload,” said County Legislator Robert W. Heins, R-Area 10, who chairs the county airport

LAKE CHAMPLAIN — The Adirondack Local Government Review Board unanimously passed a resolution last week opposing the impending state purchase of some 75,000 acres of Adirondack land from a conservation group. According to the resolution, the state intends to purchase more than 65,000 acres of former Finch Pruyn timberlands and about 15,000 acres of land in the Follensby Pond area from the Adirondack Chapter of the Nature Conservancy. Last week’s resolution states that the review board opposes the fee acquisition of the lands in question. It also urges the state Adirondack Park Agency to remain compliant with the State Land Master Plan by recommending against the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s potential fee purchase of what review board offi-

PLATTSBURGH — The city of Plattsburgh councilors have turned down a $50,000 grant for a feasibility study of Wilcox Dock and Cumberland Bay’s development. The city turned it down as they do not own the land and would have to match the grant amount. The land is owned by Sate Canal Corp.

PLATTSBURGH — Howard Perez, 21, Rouses Point, pleaded guilty to DWI and fourth-degree grand larceny following a car crash in October. Perez was arrested after he stole a car, drove drunk and crashed it shortly thereafter. Perez will now face up to three years in prison. Sentencing is March 11.

committee. Heins added having one TSA checkpoint doesn’t help matters either. “That gets to be a problem,” he said. Ultimately, plans will be influenced by the finals results of the study as the county will need to work with the FAA for both the design and how the project will be paid for, Brown said. The county already charges a $4.50 facility fee per passenger flying out of Plattsburgh International, he added, and receives federal funding — known as “entitlement money” — for having more than 10,000 passengers a year. Both, in addition to airport parking fees that will be-

gin March 1, could help in covering the cost of the expansion, which is expected to be anywhere between $10 and $20 million, said Brown. The county will move forward with formal design plans once results of the feasibility study are in hand, Brown said. That process, which will include a required environmental impact assessment, will take the remainder of the year, depending on FAA approval, he added. Construction would likely take another year. “We’re probably looking at the beginning of 2013,” Brown said of the earliest an expansion could be completed.

cials call – quote – “highly productive timberland.” Executive director of the Adirondack Local Government Review Board, Fred Monroe, said Gov. Andrew Cuomo should commission a study on the economic and social impacts of further state land acquisitions inside the Blue Line. Monroe said the state’s current fiscal crisis is a good argument against purchasing more land. “We know the state is experiencing horrible budget problems – there are plans to cut back on Medicaid, welfare, education, and we just paid $30 million out of the taxpayers’ pocket to purchase a conservation easement on the remaining Finch lands,” he said. “That happened on the same day that Gov. Cuomo reaffirmed layoffs for 900 state employees – and there’s now talk about laying off another 15,000.” The review board resolution cites numbers released by DEC Lands & Forest Director Rob Davies, which state that

working forests support three forestryrelated jobs for every 1,000 acres of productive forest lands. Additionally, Davies reports that 1,000 acres of productive forest lands support less than one tourism-related job. Monroe said now is not the time to spend more than $40 million, claiming that such a purchase would put North Country residents out of work. “We know that’s what is going to happen, when you take that working forest and make it a non-working forest,” he said. For his part, Monroe said members of the review board have met with Gov. Cuomo’s environmental secretary regarding last week’s resolution. Cuomo’s budget will be unveiled today. Monroe says that if the new governor is serious about getting New York’s fiscal house in order, he should consider calling for an in-depth study into the purchasing of land in the Adirondack Park.

Veterans cemetery still being considered PLATTSBURGH — Plans are in the works to have a veterans cemetery on Cumberland Head set up, although plans will have to be approved by the State Legislature. The descendents of Commodore Thomas Macdonough have 300 acres of land on Cumberland head they are willing to donate or sell. Currently state funding is putting the project on the backburner as the state would have to provide the funds for maintenance and operation.

Defayette finds unique way to deal with breast cancer diagnosis By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When life hands some people lemons, they make lemonade. When life handed Melanie Defayette cancer, she made the most of it. The 44-year-old Cadyville woman was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, but rather than let her condition get her down, she decided to turn a negative into a positive. Defayette’s story began last November when she found something was awry before she traveled to the national soccer competition with the Clinton Community College Women’s Soccer Team, for which she serves as assistant coach. “It was two days before we left, actually,” she said. “When we got back, I was officially diagnosed.” That’s when reality began to set in, said Defayette. Though her prognosis was that the cancer was caught early enough to likely be defeated with rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, it was still difficult to share her news with friends, family and co-workers. “When it came time to tell the people at work, it was so hard,” said Defayette, who works at the Town of Plattsburgh Offices, serving as head

of the recreation department. “It was shocking, upsetting ... I kept think that there had to be a better way to deal with this. I’m a recreation director for crying out loud. I wanted to figure out how we could make something fun out of this.” And, all it took was an off-the-cuff remark to deputy town clerk Meg Lefevre that the office should have a pool, betting on when Defayette would lose her hair. “I thought how much more fun could it be than people betting on when I would lose my hair,” said Defayette. “When Mel told everyone [about her cancer], it was sort of an awkward situation and you can tell she didn’t want to talk about it,” said Lefevre. “I think the initial suggestion for the pool was a way to alleviate the awkwardness of it. It ended up being a really good idea.” Defayette said the whole atmosphere of her workplace “just changed” with the beginning of the pool and almost daily updates on her hair loss — or lack thereof so far. And, it’s been a change for the better. “People are coming in now giving my hair a tug joking about if it’s starting to go yet,” she said. “It’s actually an indirect way for them to check up on me, but in a way that

keeps the humor in it.” The pool has even received support and participation from her family, said Defayette. “They immediately jumped on board, seeing the humor in it,” said Defayette. “One of my brothers said that if you’ve ever seen my hair, you’d need a brush hog to go get through it, that I was never going to lose it. It’s just hilarious reading the e-mails that have been going around.”

“One of my brothers threatened another that he was going to put Nair in my shampoo,” she added, referring to the hair removal cream, “because he’s just that competitive. It’s been such a funny thing.” The initial plan was just to have a small pool among the town departments with a winner-take-all scenario. However, when more and more people got involved, Defayette knew something really good could be done with the money — donating

it to the CVPH Fitzpatrick Cancer Center ’s Treasure Chests Breast Cancer Support Group. The most recent counts show more than 50 people have donated to the pool, totaling $600. “It’s gotten really big,” said LeFevre. “This is going to be able to help a lot of people.” Town Supervisor Bernard C. Bassett commended Defayette for owning her situation and finding a way for others to offer their support in a way that everyone could find humor in, he said. “While working together to support Mel, we have also found a way to bring attention to breast cancer and to help make a difference,” said Bassett, who added he’s been more motivated with each e-mail update he receives from Lefevre. “I’m pleased that we are able to respond and do our part to help Mel and others who are dealing with this dreaded disease.” Though she views her cancer as a “major speed bump,” she said it’s one she’s glad she’s going through during a time of year when things are typically slower for the recreation department. “If I’m going to go through this, this is good time of year to do it,” she said, laughing.


Story of slave being told for the first time

By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — The name Lavinia Bell may not be as common as, say, Harriet Tubman or Frederick Douglass, but her story is just as important. According to North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association president Don Papson, Bell was a slave who escaped to freedom in Canada, passing through Rouses Point as she did so. “She was born a free person in Washington D.C. and when she was a child she was kidnapped and sold into slavery,” explained Papson. “Her story is really pretty awful because the man who owned her was extremely cruel.” Papson added Bell tried to escape at one point with her husband, but were caught and he was beat to death. At the time however, Bell was pregnant. “She ran away again and she was pregnant and she gave birth to twins and one of the babies died,” he explained, adding she was caught again after that. “Then she ran away again. Her son was taken away from her,” said Papson. “What is interesting, is every

February 5, 2011

time she ran away, the man who owned her punished her more severely than he had before.” According to Papson, the wife of Bell’s owner said “You need to follow the Northern Star or he’s going to kill you.” From Texas, where Bell had been enslaved, she traveled the country finally making it to Rouses Point in the winter of 1861. There she met a man who helped her across the border into Montreal and brought her to a refugee family. “She was extremely ill and so they called a doctor in and her story was on the front page of the newspapers in Montreal,” said Papson. “That’s how we know the story.” The story will now be reenacted for the public Friday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh’s Krinovitz Recital Hall in Hawkins Hall. Actress Melissa Waddy-Thibodeaux, who has portrayed Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, will play Bell in the world premier of “Never Give Up: The Story of Lavinia Bell.” Waddy-Thibodeaux first got in contact with Papson in 2009 after she heard NCUGRHA got the National Park Service to recognize the old steam boat landing in Rouses Point

as an Underground Railroad site. The location is now where the Sportsman’s Club is now located. Papson and Waddy-Thibodeaux decided to collaborate and have Waddy-Thibodeaux write the play based on the historical information NCUGRHA was able to dig up. “It’s really one of our great stories for the Champlain line of the Underground Railroad,” said Papson. “This is the most powerful story that we have of anyone that we know of that escaped through our area to Canada and it is an example of the good will on the part of the people up here.” Waddy-Thibodeaux will also be offering performance workshops for students at the SUNY Plattsburgh and Clinton Community College during her stay. On Feb. 12, she will be performing at the Negro Community Center in Montreal. For more information, contact Papson at 561-0277 or e-mail “This is a universal story,” said Papson. “No matter who is oppressed and where they are oppressed, a person will try to go where they can to live a better life. That’s what she did, and people up here helped her.”

Martha Burns, a neighbor of Brousseau for 22 years, said when she heard word of his death she was “flabbergasted.” “I didn’t hear about it until I got home from work. I didn’t believe it,” she said. Burns said she wasn’t close to Brousseau, but remembers watching him working in his garden, mowing the lawn or haying the fields. “Every time I saw him I waved. He always waved back. He was very friendly,” she said. “It’s really too bad.” Burns said she knew Brousseau, a retired correctional officer from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, lived at the residence alone after his wife, Gladys M., passed away last April. Burns added she remembers Brousseau visited his wife regularly at Meadowbrook Healthcare in Plattsburgh, the nursing home where she resided until her death. Another of Brousseau’s neighbors, who asked not to be identified, knew little about him, but called news of his death “tragic.” “I would be walking and see him on his porch reading his paper,” the neighbor said, adding she had no interaction with him beyond that. Clinton County fire investigators and state police have launched a joint investigation to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

Training From page 4 ditions covered by the conference. “That’s why we’ve tried to go from one end of the spectrum to the next and back again.” Though the Morrisonville department, like many others, mainly deals with calls relating to cardiac and diabetes-related issues, said Faus, it’s important to know more about the increasing variety of special needs cases. “We get a call maybe once every four or five months for a patient who’s autistic or who has maybe a feeding tube problem,” said Faus. “If we can learn something here, then maybe they don’t need to go to the hospital; maybe it’s something we can fix with the crew we have on the ambulance. This can only improve the quality of care we give.” Having grown up with an uncle with mental retardation, Faus said he understands the importance of becoming familiar with the health challenges faced by a person with special needs. “We shouldn’t have to be scared about dealing with this particular clientele, especially. We need to have a better understanding of what they go through,” he said. This year ’s conference, held at the Keeseville Volunteer

North Countryman - 25

Fire Department Jan. 29, drew more than 70 people from departments across the region. Many have attended the event since its inception. “We’ve been to every one they’ve offered,” said Jerry Dumas, first assistant chief with Bangor Volunteer Fire Department and EMS. “It’s a great opportunity for us because you don’t get a lot of this style training to help the special needs population.” Dumas said he has seen an increase in the number of people in the region with varying special needs, which leads to a need for a better understanding of their medical and behavioral conditions. “It takes a lot of special knowledge and special considerations because we’re basically the first line of medical treatment for whatever the particular issue may be,” said Dumas. “The better interaction we can have with those individuals from the onset is going to make for a better experience across the board.” Nelly Stipdonk, an EMS educator at John Abbott College in Montreal, Que., and member stateside in the Saranac Volunteer Fire Department, agreed. “On a daily basis, we come in contact with patients who are either hearing-impaired or who have other special needs,” said Stipdonk. “I think special needs are something

we absolutely need to become familiar with and understand and accept.” In her native Quebec, Stipdonk said having that understanding is even more important due to the considerably higher amount of non-life-threatening calls to which departments there respond. “There’s a trend in our health care system that says we’re going to be doing more and more house calls and caring for people in a different capacity than emergencies,” she said. “Our role is becoming much more focused on the support and hand-holding side of caring for patients ... That’s why this training is very important.” Todd M. Castine, director of clinical services for the Clinton County Advocacy and Resource Center in Plattsburgh, spoke during the conference and said the training is important to people with special needs, their families and the emergency responders alike. “The more [emergency responders] know ahead of time about how to effectively interact with our folks, the more the comfort level increases and they’re able to provide better care,” said Castine. “The biggest thing to know is our folks are no different than anyone else, it’s just that they have some additional needs. And, if you know about them, then it’s easier to help them.”
