Earning honors

SARANAC — The Saranac Town Council will move forward with a temporary solution to what has been called a more permanent problem regarding its municipal swimming pool. Council members voted 4-0 in favor of spending $18,411 to have the interior of the pool repainted and sealed to alleviate a problem with chipping paint seen during last season’s use. The motion was made by Councilman Robert L. Blair and seconded by CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Chazy Central to benefit from test driving fundraiser

Ford Motor Co., Riley Ford to team up for June 5 event

By Jeremiah S. Papineau

CHAZY — There’s money just waiting for students at Chazy Central Rural School. The only thing it will take to get it is some of your time. Through a partnership between Riley Ford Inc. and

Ford Motor Company, the local Ford dealership will host “Drive One 4 UR School,” a special fundraising event at CCRS Sunday, June 5. The event, explained Riley Ford general manager Joy E. VanLeuvan, will give the school $20 for every test drive made that day up to $6,000. The proceeds will help fund various extracurricular activities at the school, including Drama Club, Model United Nations and Students Against Destructive Decisions. “This will be a huge bene-

fit for the school, providing these clubs with funding they otherwise wouldn’t have,” said VanLeuvan. The Drive One 4 UR School event is a program offered by Ford Motor Company, but one Riley Ford hadn’t been able to take on until this year when facilitated by Katie Page, a student from the State University of New York interning at the dealership over the last semester. “Katie really did a great job putting this together,” said VanLeuvan. “I thought it would be fun

to do,” Page said of Riley Ford hosting the event. The best part is, said Page, that there’s no obligation for people participating in the test drives to purchase a vehicle. All they have to do is show up and get behind the wheel. “It costs them nothing to gain money for the school and all it takes is about 10 to 15 minutes,” said Page. Additionally, those who opt to test drive a new Ford Focus in addition to another Riley Ford vehicle, will earn an additional $10 per person

to benefit CCRS, for a potential of raising another $3,000 for the school. That’s music to the ears of CCRS superintendent and high school principal John Fairchild. “This will be a great help by making money available for these clubs that won’t come out of taxpayers’ pockets,” said Fairchild. “It’s great to see corporations on the local and national levels supporting our school like this. It’s a win-win situation.” “We’re glad to be a part of Daily Specials

this,” said VanLeuvan. “We want to get the whole community involved because it helps the school out and could mean getting more kids involved in extracurricular activities.” The Drive One 4 UR School event will be held at the school, 609 Miner Farm Road, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 5.

Martinez awaits sentencing for sexually abusing toddler, other charges By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — A Saranac man is awaiting federal and state sentencing on charges related to the sexual abuse and assault. Aaron Martinez, 26, pleaded guilty in Clinton County Court May 16 to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of predatory sexual assault against a child, and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. Martinez, represented by his defense

counsel, Allan Cruikshank, appeared before the Hon. Patrick McGill. During Martinez’s appearance, the People of the State of New York were represented by Clinton County Assistant District Attorney Domenica Padula, who motioned to dismiss 21 counts of the 27 count state indictment. According to documents from the Clinton County District Attorney’s Office, the dismissed counts pertained to portions of the state indictment that alleged videotaping of child pornography. Those counts

were dismissed because the defendant pleaded guilty to the production of child pornography pursuant to a federal indictment in federal court earlier this month. Martinez pleaded guilty as charged to the six remaining counts of the state indictment that charged him with sexual acts against a

child. According to Padula, the victim was a 3-year-old child of a friend of Martinez and the crimes occurred in the victim’s home in the city of Plattsburgh in May 2010. He reportedly used his a camera on his cell phone to record the act. See MARTINEZ, continued on page 21

Local man gets his diploma four decades after leaving for service By Jeremiah S. P apineau


ail Call Or EmEE R F For A g 2011 Catalo le a S with Pricing

PERU — It’s nearly 40 years later than he had originally planned, but Arthur Hart has received his high school diploma. The West Chazy man and North Country native was recently afforded the opportunity to receive his diploma through “Operation Recognition,” a program through the New York State Division of Veterans Affairs. “I had never heard of it,” Hart said of the program, adding he was informed about it recently by a counselor with Veterans Affairs. The program is designed to honor people like Hart, who left their pursuit of a high school education to fight in the Armed Forces. In Hart’s case, the year was 1973. It was a turbulent time for the nation when many young men were being drafted to fight in the Vietnam War. He was only 17 years old when he decided to voluntarily join the U.S. Navy, a year after his brothers Ed and James enlisted. “I had a draft card, but I wanted to [enlist],” said Hart. Hart soon found himself attending boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill. Upon completion of his training, Hart was shipped to Baltimore, Md., where he joined his brother aboard the U.S.S. Charleston LKA-113, an amphibious cargo ship based in Norfolk, Va. Though Hart never saw any combat time, he does recall the only time he felt really nervous during his 11 months and three-day stint in the service being his first overseas training assignment in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“That was pretty scary. It scared me because all you’d see there was water,” said Hart. “And, because of where we were.” When his enlistment was up, Hart contemplated remaining in the service, but decided to return to the North Country instead, bringing home with him the National Defense Service Medal for his service. On Aug. 12, 1977, he married his wife, Judy, and, in 1981, their daughter, Jessica, was born. The one thing that has troubled Hart over the years was not having a high school See HART, continued on page 15

Budgets pass in all Clinton County school districts By Jeremiah S. Papineau

School budgets throughout Clinton County were approved by voters during the annual vote held May 17. The breakdown for the North Countryman readership area is as follows:

BEEKMANTOWN The $38,721,107 annual budget proposed for the Beekmantown Central School District was narrowly approved by voters 746 to 730. Superintendent Scott A. Amo said given the controversy over reductions in

funding for various departments and employees, he wasn’t surprised the vote was as close as it was. “I think budgeting for many schools in New York state is suspect to the loss of state aid and revenue,” said Amo. “I was expecting this to be a close vote but I am pleased the vote did pass. As I’ve said before, it presents a balance for quality programming that’s sensitive to the local taxpayers.” Board of education member Leonard King was reelected to a five-year term with 954 votes. Michael Hall received one write-in vote. Voters also approved a proposition to purchase one 66-passenger bus and one seven-passenger vehicle by a vote of 219 to 13. The cost of the vehicles is not to exceed $134,000.

CHAZY The Chazy Central Rural School District received approval for its $9,911,907 budget for the coming school year by a vote of 232 to 65. Voters also approved a proposition for the district to disburse $35,000 to the Chazy Public Library in annual support of its program-

ming. The proposition was approved 192 to 90. Rosemary Souza-Botten was approved to a five-tear term on the board of education with 192 votes. Mary LaPierre was approved for another by 216 votes. George Brendler was approved as a library trustee by 247 votes. Superintendent John Fairchild said he and the board of education thank the community for supporting the budget. “The vote clearly indicates the overwhelming support of the community for the school and the excellent educational program that is provided for the students of Chazy,” said Fairchild, adding the pay freeze agreed to by the Chazy Teachers Association, administrators and other district employees helped “maintain all student programs and faculty positions.” “As a school community

North Countryman - 5

everyone shared some of the financial burden created by the fiscal crisis in New York state,” said Fairchild. “Everyone believes that next year will bring additional fiscal challenges to all schools, but the Chazy school community is prepared to work as a team to handle these challenges.”

NAC The $18,266,725 budget proposed for the Northern Adirondack Central School District was approved by a vote of 409 to 78. Superintendent Laura J. Marlow said she was pleased with the overwhelming outcome of the vote. “Once again, the community has shown their support for public education in the Northern Adirondack Central School District,” said Marlow. “We’re very pleased with the outcome of the vote. We’re a very closeknit school community that

values not only education but all the extracurricular components as well.” Marlow added the fact the vote passed nearly 5:1 was impressive. “That’s almost unprecedented,” said Marlow. Paul Gilmore won a fiveyear term on the board of education with 213 votes. Incumbent Daniel Cayea trailed with 127 votes and Mark Decoste with 163 votes. An unexpired fouryear term went to Sarah Lawrence with 320 votes. Scott Decker received 114 votes for the same position

while Wayne Spahr received 45. Voters also approved a proposition 374 to 76 to purchase three new buses for an amount not to exceed $311,466. Another proposition, to change the election of board of education members to an at-large system, was also approved. That vote passed 261 to 122.

Patriot Flight: an important organization for our veterans


or many World War II veterans, visiting the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. is high on their bucket list. And thanks to an organization called Patriot Flight, Inc. — based in New York’s capital region — some northern New York veterans have been able to cross this trip off their list. Opening in 2004, the memorial honors the 16 million U.S. men and women who served in the military, and the roughly 400,000 Americans who died during World War II. It is located between Constitution and Independence Avenues. And that’s a great tidbit to know, for those who have the time and money to travel to our nation’s capital, but many aging World War II vets are on fixed incomes and can’t afford the trip. And a lot of them have limited

This volunteer group flies World War II veterans from upstate New York to see the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. for free. Inspired by a program in Springfield, Ohio — Honor Flight Network, Inc. — Patriot Flight began transporting vets to the nation’s capital in 2008, joining more than 100 other groups throughout the U.S. affiliated with the Honor Flight Network, which was founded in 2005. In New York, there are similar groups in Long Island, Rochester and Buffalo. Plus, there is another group — Leatherstocking Honor Flight — that flies out of Albany. One local veteran — Kenneth Coonrod, of Willsboro — made the trip April 23. Coonrod enlisted in the U.S. Navy in December 1944 and served in the Pacific Theater, in places like Guam and Okinawa, until 1946. “It was far above what I ever expected it to be,” Coonrod said of the memo-

Thanks to St. Mary’s supporters A Zumbathon was held on Sunday, May 15 at the Rainbow Wedding and Hall in Altona to benefit St. Mary’s Academy. Over 100 people were moving to the Latin-inspired international music and live percussionists as many sported T-shirts with the phrase “Shakin for a Cause but You Can’t Shake Our Faith” Faith that the school would remain open, continuing to provide jobs and quality education for the community. As with any fundraiser, this would not have been successful without the support and time from many people and local businesses.

rial and the Patriot Flight trip. No Patriot Flight trips are currently scheduled. As funding becomes available through donations, they schedule more tours. When there is a trip, it only takes one day. The 15-hour tour starts at 6 a.m. in Latham. Vets fly a Southwest plane from Albany International Airport to Baltimore, where they hop on a bus and ride to Washington, D.C. for the day. After dinner, they re-trace their steps and make it back to Albany by 9 p.m. Special needs, such as wheelchairs, can be met. About 30 percent of the veterans who have taken trips so far have required wheelchairs, and the deluxe motorcoaches are equipped with wheelchair lifts. World War II veterans who are terminally ill are given special priority. Those who require oxygen must make arrangements ahead of time, as oxygen tanks are not allowed on flights. Patriot Flight is an important organization at an important time, and it is one with a limited life span, given the current mission of providing “our re-

maining World War II veterans the chance to personally view the memorial that was built to recognize their sacrifice to our nation.” We ask people to consider donating to Patriot Flight but not to wait too long. At an average age of 85, more than 1,200 World War II veterans are dying every day. Patriot Flight calls its mission “urgent,” and our time to say thank-you is quickly running out. For some veterans, the National World War II Memorial is the last thing they’d like to see before they die. Please, help make their dreams come true.

Adirondack Park Agency trying to tip the scales of justice


his just seems plain wrong to me! From a very young age, we’ve been taught to respect authority. This land of the free we all treasure so dearly was built on the concept of a judicial system that provided equality and fairness and was blind to the rich and powerful and governmental overreach. It’s a simple concept that is known and understood worldwide. Then why is Sandy Lewis being treated so unfairly? After proving in court and through appeal that the Lewis Family Farm in Essex was well within its right to construct housing for its workers, New York State now seeks to have the final chapter of this case removed from the record, as though it never took place.

of gratitude to Sandy and Barbara Lewis for standing up to the APA and the State of New York. Very few among us would have or could have taken the actions they did, and that’s what’s at the root of this issue. The APA knows they can have their way, interpret the rules any way they see fit, and the average citizen has little choice but to cave in to their demands or risk losing everything. It’s time for the APA and the state to admit they were wrong and let effects of their actions remain on the record for all to know that they are not invincible. They must learn to deal with the average citizen in a fair, equitable way and not as the big bully they have proven to be time and time again.

sumption worldwide. According to the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids, almost half of children regularly breathe air polluted by tobacco smoke. Over 40 percent of children have at least one smoking parent. In 2004, children accounted for 28 percent of the deaths attributable to second hand smoke. There are more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes, of which at least 250 are known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer. Each year in NYS, over 25,000 adults die due to smoking related diseases. We do not want another generation to suffer the effects of tobacco use. Exposure to in store tobacco marketing is a primary cause of youth smoking. To protect our kids, we must reduce youth exposure to tobacco marketing. In support of World No Tobacco Day, local youth from the NYS Tobacco Control Program’s Reality Check will host a call to action rally at 3:45 p.m. in Trinity Park, Plattsburgh, NY. The focus will be “We’ve Seen Enough.” Come see what the youth have to say about tobacco marketing. Tobacco use is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced.

Don’t mess with us! When a child continues to steal and the only punishment is to give the item back to its rightful owner, if the owner can prove it was theirs to begin with, what lesson is learned? So long as you can get away with it, why not take everything you want anytime you want? The lesson learned is simple. Keep doing it until someone puts a stop to it and there is a level of punishment commensurate with the act. Government must be held to the highest standard possible given its unlimited resources and when proven wrong, repeatedly, should face some sort of restrictions or censorship. They have no skin in the contest, and with nothing to lose, it only serves to empower them all the more. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he wants to improve ethics at the state government level. This is the perfect time for the Governor to send a clear message that those of us living in the Adirondack Park have rights, too! As citizens, we all owe a great deal

Wet weather brings garden diseases May’s Workout of the Month


t seems that our weather is seldom ideal for the garden. Sometimes, it is too hot and dry. And other times, like this spring, the weather is too cool and wet. Cool wet weather brings a whole host of issues in the garden. Many people in the area cannot even get into their gardens because the soil is so wet or even under water! Cool, wet weather is ideal for the spread of garden diseases. Many funguses thrive in weather conditions similar to what we have been experiencing. Unfortunately, once a leaf or part of a plant is infected there is no way to cure the plant. You can only keep the fungal disease from spreading. Therefore, prevention is the best step against fungal diseases in the garden. Fungi are reduced by growing plants in sunny locations with good air circulation and by reducing water contact on leaf surfaces. Diseases can be prevented by removing and destroying affected leaves that fall to the ground and by watering at the base rather than overhead. Pruning the lower leaves, to prevent soil from being able to splash onto the leaves, is another way to prevent fungal disease from infecting roses, shrubs, and tomato plants. If disease pressure is severe, there are both

conventional (man-made) and organic (naturally derived) fungicide that can be used. It is important to remember that these products only prevent fungal infection and do not cure them. Most of the organic products have to be purchased, just like the conventional products, with one exception. A 10 percent milk solution — 10 parts water to one part milk — has been proven to be an effective preventative against powdery mildew. Also remember that no matter what type of fungicide you use, read the label carefully and follow its instructions. Always think about your safety first! Finally, the easiest way to prevent fungal disease in the garden is to purchase disease resistant plants. Many plants are naturally resistant to certain diseases and others have been bred to be resistant. You can find resistant roses, phlox, tomatoes, peppers, and pumpkins for example. Having a plant that is resistant to fungus is the easiest way to prevent garden diseases! Anne Lenox Barlow is a professional horticulturist who enjoys gardening with her family in Plattsburgh.

Annual Heart Walk planning off and running American Heart Association sets $165,000 goal

By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — Though several months away from the Plattsburgh Heart Walk, those behind the annual event are once again getting people thinking about heart health. The American Heart Association recently hosted its Heart Walk Leadership Breakfast at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Angell College Center, officially kicking off the effort behind the 2011 Plattsburgh Heart Walk. The breakfast, said AHA regional director Keri Mack, is a way the AHA gets community leaders excited about raising money and awareness for the October event. “The breakfast is a kickoff leadership event for local businesses where we bring in companies and other organizations to discuss the American Heart Association and to give them information,” explained Mack. The breakfast is also an opportunity for attendees to learn first-hand about how the AHA has helped those

tion. That’s why research by organizations like the AHA is so important, said Mack. “The research dollars we raise in our communities go into the things he had done himself — the surgeries, the medicines, things like that,” said Mack. “The monies we raise in our communities help when families have these types of conditions.” That research goes beyond helping little ones like Luke, said Mack. “One in every three adults suffers from some form of heart disease or stroke — those are huge numbers,” said Mack, adding research for stints, which are used to treat other heart conditions, has also been funded through the AHA. Heart-related illnesses are not only a health-related “epidemic,” but also one that affects the economy, said Mack. Heart-related illnesses have been connected to approximately $226 billion in productivity losses reported by corporate America. “So, behind just the health impact on families and people that have heart disease, there’s a huge expense in the cost of treating heart disease and stroke, and it’s expected to triple in the next 20 years,” said Mack. “It’s on-

going therapy for high blood pressure, cholesterol, coronary stints.” “It’s a national health crisis, a national financial crisis,” she added. That’s where the AHA comes in with Heart Walks held each year around the nation, said Mack. The Plattsburgh walk is “hugely important” in being part of that effort, she added, with this year ’s goal of raising $165,000. It’s a goal Mack believes is “very attainable.” “We’ve done it in the past,” said Mack, who ac-

knowledged the difficult economic times that have faced the nation in recent years. “The economy is what the economy is. We all struggle but the community is very giving and very generous.” This year ’s walk is slated for Saturday, Oct. 15, to again be held at the PARC Oval in Plattsburgh.

North Star Underground Railroad Museum officially opens its doors By Keith Lobdell

KEESEVILLE — A new museum offers a look into the role that the North Country played in helping slaves escape to freedom. The North Star Underground Railroad Museum, next to Ausable Chasm, officially opened its doors to the public on May 21, with the public getting a first look at the interactive features and displays. “This is beyond our expectations,” North Country Underground Railroad Historical Society President Dan Papson said. “This is the biggest, little museum in New York State.” “It is a very interactive exhibition,” Vice President Frank Kinnelly said. “You can watch the movies that we have. And a lot of the exhibits have doors that you can open to learn more.” The museum houses several rooms, which include a look at the women of the Underground Railroad movement, a movie detailing the story of a slave who found freedom in Bloomingdale, and the

role that churches played in the Underground Railroad movement in the area. The museum was funded through several grants which were gained through a collective effort of the historical society and the town of Chesterfield. Papson said that they have also worked closely with Ausable Chasm to bring the museum to reality. “What is amazing about this is we have a government agency, a private business and a not-forprofit agency working together,” he said. “None of this could have been done with out the help of each other. I think that this is a pioneering situation that other organizations will start to copy because this is a win-win-win situation.” The North Star Underground Railroad Museum is open on Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and will also be open on Monday holidays, including Memorial Day. The museum will be open through Columbus Day. For more information, call 8345180.

Chief economic developer stops in North Country By Dan Alexander PLATTSBURGH — Gov. Andrew E. Cuomo’s chief economic developer, Ken Adams, paid a visit to Plattsburgh May 17 to stump for the governor ’s “People First Campaign.” During his visit last week, Adams noted getting New York State’s budget passed on time this year was a major step in the right direction, setting the state on the path for fiscal responsibility. Adams stressed it’s important for the state to build trust and credibility with the business community for them to have faith to invest in its economy. “Despite those saying the sky would fall, the budget passed closing a $10 billion deficit. The state needed to make the statement that it can’t continue to live beyond its means,” said Adams.

However, chipping paint — that when mixed with corrosive pool cleaners — began to dissolve into the water last year, leading council members to weigh their options, said Blair. “We had to act on it now or close it,” said Blair. “And, we didn’t want to close it.” Prior to making a decision on the matter, Town Supervisor James E.

Facteau and pool manager Ken Carter noted there are concerns about the longevity of the plumbing beneath the pool. “The thing is, once [contractors] get into it and start grinding the concrete, whatever ’s behind there, if there’s problems, it’s going to be an extra charge,” said Facteau. The council further reviewed an estimate to install a rubber membrane liner from a firm from New

Members of the audience called the repainting a “temporary solution” and “putting a Band-Aid” on the issue. However, the cost to replace the pool, said Carter, has been estimated at more than

$100,000. The town council will now move forward with hiring Henry’s Pools and Spas, Plattsburgh, to perform work to the pool, which will consist of removing existing paint and grinding the surface down to its concrete base before applying a primer and epoxy paint. “Hopefully, we can get the contractor in right away to get this painted,” said Facteau.

New ‘military timeline’ to be hosted this weekend in Beekmantown By Jeremiah S. Papineau

association’s annual timeline event. “There was still a great amount of interest in a timeline in the area and people were very disappointed with the cancellation,” said Hewson. “In an effort to prevent the area from losing a great community activity and learning opportunity, John Dodge and I decided to put together an event that would provide the same opportunities for folks in the area.” The two began collaborating with the Clinton County Historical Association and town of Beekmantown officials to prepare an event to be held at the Town of

BEEKMANTOWN — When the Battle of Plattsburgh Association decided not to host its annual Plattsburgh Military Timeline, Matt Hewson and friend John Dodge decided to do something. The nonprofit organization announced earlier this year that the pending sale of the Old Stone Barracks property led to an understanding the property would no longer be available on which to host historical reenactments, resulting in a cancellation of the

The event will feature regularly scheduled firing demonstrations that will showcase the progression and innovation of American martial arms and several smaller demonstrations that will focus on more specific time periods. One such smaller demonstration will be the "Trench Gun Derby,” which will span the time periods of the Spanish American War and World War II, demonstrating “the awe-inspiring firepower of the 1897 Trench Gun,” said Hewson. A World War II bazooka demonstration and simulated gas attack drill are also

Beekmantown Recreation Park on Spellman Road. “Once the idea started rolling people really jumped on board,” said Hewson. The planning that has gone into the event has taken several months, said Hewson. The result is the first annual Clinton County Military Timeline — an event he feels will provide attendees with a “smorgasbord of history.” “Visitors will be able to talk with reenactors and view demonstrations from time periods ranging from the French and Indian War all the way to World War II,” said Hewson.

among the events in the day expected to be highlights for spectators, he added. “This event is sure to be a crowd favorite and is something folks should try to see,” Hewson said of the timeline. The free event will be one that Hewson emphasized is all about interaction. “The reenactors will be in their areas ready to talk with visitors about their time periods, units, and history. The entire experience for visitors will be an educational one but, above all, a fun one,” said Hewson. The Clinton County Military

Timeline will be held this Memorial Day Weekend — Saturday, May 28, and Sunday, May 29 — opening to the public both days at 9 a.m. Firing demonstrations will be held at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday. The event will end for the day at 5 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. “We hope we will have good weather but if we don't I hope people will come down anyway and have some fun in the rain with history,” said Hewson. “We will be there rain or shine and we hope our visitors will be, too.”

D & D Meats reopens nearly nine months after morning blaze By Jeremiah S. Papineau

SCIOTA — D & D Meats is back in business. The family-owned convenience store and butcher shop opened its doors May 23, nearly nine months after an early morning fire in September caused major damage to the store, prompting owners Adrien and Sharon Dutil to close its doors. “We’re glad to be back,” said Sharon, sitting in the newly-renovated store on State Route 22. The process to get the store back up and running was a long one, said Sharon. “We kept setting dates, and pushing back, setting more dates and pushing back,” she recalled. “One time it because we were waiting on a fryer, another time it was because we needed training on our new cash registers. We finally had to just pick a day to open and just do it.” The major hurdles for reopening were aligning schedules with contractors and deciding how to re-

design the store to make it more efficient and user-friendly, said Sharon. The process involved picking out new flooring, expanding the aisles, and making more room for amenities like a coffee station and tables for patrons. “We wanted to take time to lay it out the way we wanted. We didn’t want to just throw it together,” she said. “We really wanted it to look like an Adirondack country store, which it does. We wanted it to feel like home for our customers.” The Dutils also wanted to utilize as many local resources for labor and materials as possible, said Sharon. “Almost everything in here came from North Country people — the paint, the flooring, the appliances,” said Sharon. “That was important to us.” Getting the store reopened was also slowed by the fact the Dutils had to handle repairs to upstairs apartments and their home, which adjoin the store. “We were going in three different directions at once, trying to get

everything done,” said Sharon. However, upon opening Monday, Sharon said the business

seemed like it didn’t miss a beat. “We thought it would be slow because we really didn’t put the

word out too much that we’d be open,” said Sharon. “But it hasn’t been slow.” Longtime customers Carol and Harold Thurber of Beekmantown were among those stopping by the store that day, noticing makeshift signs with the word “Open” on them. “We’ve been coming here a couple years,” said Harold, who added he and his wife used to frequent the store for its fresh meat. “We’ve been suffering. Now I can buy my meat again.” “It’s more open,” Carol said of the store’s layout. “It’s very nice the way they have it. I love it.” D & D Meats will have a special 30-year anniversary celebration and grand reopening Saturday, June 18. The store’s hours are Monday through Saturday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. ON THE C OVER: D & D M eats o wners Adrien and Sharon Dutil joined b y their son Shane, who has r ecently joined the family business.

Martinez From page 3 Sentencing for Martinez on federal charges against him is expected to take place Sept. 25. Those charges could land him up to 30 years in prison. He is expected to answer to state charges against him Sept. 25, which could result in a sentencing of up to 50 years to life in state prison and a requirement to register as a sex offender. According to Clinton County Assistant

District Attorney Domenica Padula, prosecuting attorney in the case, Martinez is currently being held in Clinton County Jail while awaiting both federal and state sentencing. “Now that Mr. Martinez has been convicted of his sexual crimes against this young child we can only hope that the victim and her family will continue to experience a sense of justice as we look towards sentencing in the fall,” Padula said in a written statement.

22 - North Countryman • Adirondack Outdoors

No cats, no dogs T

he Great North Woods continue to become a little less wild, following another announcement from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In March 2011, the agency removed federal protection for the eastern cougar, after extensive reviews revealed no evidence of an existing breeding population in the eastern United States. Researchers believe the Eastern cougar subspecies has been extinct since a trapper in Somerset County, Maine, killed the last confirmed eastern mountain lion in 1938. More recently, on May 5, 2011, the Fish and Wildlife Service proposed a new rule to eliminate federal protection for wolves throughout the central and eastern U.S. According to the USFWS proposal, the special regulation for the Eastern Distinct Population Segment (DPS) was based on research indicating the gray wolf is no longer considered a native species in the northeast. The agency now recognizes the

eastern wolf (Canis lycaon) as the only wolf native to the northeast, and the agency will evaluate it “for possible protection under the Act in the near future.” The special regulation for the Eastern Distinct Population Segment (DPS) applies to wolves in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The persecution of wolves by human is the primary reason for the decline of wolves across North America, Humans are the largest single cause of wolf mortality and the only cause that can significantly affect wolf populations at recovery levels. Studies indicate that wolves require remote wild areas, with

a wide range of prey animals. In the northeast, whitetail deer have historically filled this role. However, in a study conducted in Minnesota, researchers determined that road density also plays a significant role in the ability of wolves to establish a presence. The study discovered that wolves require a road density that does not exceed .9 miles of highway per square mile of land, the current road density of the Adirondack Park. Road density is not an indicator of potential road kill, rather it is an indication of the ease at which humans can access wolf habitat to harass, trap or shoot them. Research indicates that wolves were primarily extirpated from the northeastern United States by 1900. However, there have been a number of credible observations of wolves reported in the Northeast throughout the 20th century. According to various reports, a single female wolf was killed in western Maine in 1993, and in 1996 a second wolf was trapped and killed in central Maine. Another wolf-like caned was mistaken for a coyote and killed in 1997 in northern Vermont, and in 2001, a coyote hunter shot and killed a male wolf (85 lb.) in Day, NY.

Chazy earns top seed in playoffs by ousting Beagles in MVAC’s By Keith Lobdell

Chazy Westport/Keene KEENE VALLEY — The Chazy Eagles took advantage of the breaks and eliminated several Westport/Keene Beagles from the basepaths as they claimed a birth in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference championship game, as well as the top seed in the Section VII/Class D playoffs. The Eagles scored a 7-3 win over the Beagles May 23 in the MVAC Division I v. II playoff game. “I thought that we were very good defensively,” head coach Brian Norcross said after the game. “Nathan Reynolds (winning pitcher with 5.1 innings, two earned runs) pitched well and when the game was tight, Ricky Osier (who earned a save with 1.1 innings and three strikeouts) came in and shut the door.” Kyle Bissonette scored the first two runs of the game for the Eagles, scoring on a wild pitch after reaching on an error in the first, and then scoring on a throwing error in the third, which also scored Kaleb Snide. The Eagles opened the game up in the sixth, when John Tregan scored on a Kyle McCarthy squeeze bunt, Michael Ryba scored on a Craig Botten single, and Botten scored on a Bissonette single. “Craig had a big RBI hit for us in the sixth inning,” Norcross said. Osier scored the final run of the game on a wild pitch in the seventh. As well as scoring runs, the Eagles defense

The Eagles caught Quaglietta twice on steal attempts, two of the five baserunners they eliminated in the game. Photo by Keith Lobdell prevented runs from scoring, as they picked off five Beagle runners off the bases. “Kyle McCarthy made some great throws for us at catcher,” Norcross said. “Our pitchers all hold runners well and get the ball to the plate quick.” “Every time that we got something going, something would happen and they would make a play,” Westport/Keene co-head coach Don Markwica said. “We shot ourselves in the foot. We didn’t play sound baseball and Chazy is a team that will make you pay for that.” The lone Beagles rally came in the sixth in-

ning, when James Bell, Max Van Wie and Ethan Markwica all scored on scoring plays made by Markwica (single), Alex Frum (bases loaded walk) and Kevin Russell (bases loaded walk). Osier then came on in relief for the Eagles, striking out three of the final five batter while giving up a hit to Bell in the seventh. After the game, Norcross said that he felt his team was where they needed to be at the start of sectionals. “We have some depth at pitching that will help us out and I feel we are playing some good baseball,” he said.
