Local community remembers those lost to war By Stephen Bartlett firstname.lastname@example.org MORRISONVILLE — Bob Frenyea was in Vietnam six months when a booby trap sent him to a field hospital and then home. He lost friends and family to the war and enjoys coming to the legion and talking with fellow soldiers, especially the old timers. “So many people gave so much.” He spent Memorial Day morning and afternoon at American Legion Post 1619 in West Plattsburgh, along with many others, to honor those killed in battle. “This day is sacred with the almost visible presence of those who have gone before us,” said Commander Michael Rock. He spoke to a large crowd under the hot sun, a small, lone table a few feet before him, resting on the grass with a black POW/MIA flag draped over the empty seat. It represents prisoners of war, with the The firing squad at the American Legion Post 1619 honors soldiers who have fallen in times of war.

Timeline event provides living history of war By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com BEEKMANTOWN — A Civil War veteran who went west stood quietly with his rifle. A Marine from WWII cradled his weapon, eyes straight ahead. Nearby, soldiers from the French-Indian War, Revolutionary War, Mexican War and Spanish American War, awaited firing orders. “Today we are showcasing American military history,” said Matthew Hewson, standing in WWII attire. He and others gathered in Beekmantown to re-enact fighting and other scenes from American Military History. One demonstration included a speed competition, as soldiers fired everything from muzzle-loading muskets to semi-automatic rifles. The French and Indian War was fought from 1754 to 1763. It was fought primarily between the colonies of Great Britain and New France. The American Revolutionary War was fought from 1775 to 1783. It started as a war between Great Britain and the new United States and resulted in an American victory. The Mexican War was fought between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848. It
resulted in an U.S. victory and reduced Mexican territory from 1.7 million square miles to 800,000. The American Civil War raged from 1861 to 1865. More than 1 million people lost their lives. The Spanish American War took place in 1898 between Spain and the United States. It was a result of American intervention in the ongoing Cuban War of Independence. It resulted in the Treaty of Paris, which gave American temporary control of Cuba. WWII began in 1939 and ended in 1945. It involved all of the great powers and resulted in 50 million to 70 million casualties. “We wanted to show American military history from its earliest beginning to modern day,” Hewson said. The event worked as a one-stop shop for American military history. IT showcased how technology, warfare and fighting changed over time. Time periods like the Spanish American War were small in scale but important for American expansion, Hewson said. The event was a unique opportunity to showcase living history for people in the North Country. “It is important to preserve all the history we can,” Hewson said.

Innovation is the route to our future
two-year college degree. Forty-four miles southeast, another example of ingenuity shows a lot of promise for remote Adirondack communities and their economic revival. Broadband access — seen as crucial to tourism and economic development as well as local residents’ quality of life — has been regarded as economically unfeasible due to the burdensome cost of infrastructure needed to provide broadband for a meager population spread over mountainous terrain. But in Thurman, town officials decided to shoulder some risks and innovate. The town is partnering with a Chestertown-based entrepreneur to bring broadband to its 1,200 residents, most of whom rely on near-useless dial-up. The Thurman town board voted several weeks ago to commit $20,000 to testing cutting-edge “white space” technology which would broadcast data over unused frequencies traditionally reserved for analog television transmission. The project, which has gained national attention, holds a promise of affordably connecting its citizens to the Internet, now seen as a virtual necessity of modern life. While there’s a considerable amount that’s been accomplished in reviving our economies, more challenges lie ahead. Most of our communities’ downtowns still host too many vacant buildings — idle primarily due to the high cost of heating and cooling as well as burdensome taxation. While Chestertown is struggling with how to revive rows of empty storefronts, their town government is taking action on exploring ways of slashing the cost of heating its own facilities through the use of wood chips or pellets.Already, the town government has installed arrays of solar panels to provide electricity and cut its utility costs. Such technologies could help efforts to revitalize our downtowns, experts have said. All these examples demonstrate that innovative thinking can overcome the longstanding problems we face in the Adirondacks — and we at Denton Publications hail the practice.

North Countryman Editorial
n recent decades, life in the Adirondacks — particularly in the remote areas — has become challenging for year-round residents. With traditional Adirondack-based industries hampered by competition from overseas and tightened government regulations, goodpaying jobs have disappeared. Our communities shrank due to limited employment opportunities. School enrollments diminished across the Adirondacks by more than 30 percent as families moved out to seek a more promising future. These trends, confirmed several years ago by the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project report, raised alarm over how many Adirondack communities are threatened. There is a prevailing force, however, that has been working in the opposite direction. Innovation. It’s a matter of exploring revolutionary approaches and devising out-of-the-box solutions to long-standing problems. There are plenty of examples of how such an approach has proven successful. This week, Newcomb Central School scheduled a dinner to celebrate their largest enrollment in 25 years — 101 students, a record in recent years. Only six years ago, their K-12 enrollment was 55, down from about 400 several decades ago. Back in 2006, the school administrators, under the leadership of School Superintendent Clark “Skip” Hults, didn’t resign themselves to impending extinction. Instead, they devised a program of recruiting international students who have traditionally sought out private schools in the U.S. The program has been wildly successful, bringing additional income into the school district while enriching the educational experience for local children through boosted cultural diversity. Based on the success of the program, the school administrators are now seeking to establish a dormitory, or secure student housing by the conversion of existing residences. Such a move could boost the district’s revenue by $1 million, or about 20 percent, offering relief to local taxpayers. The Newcomb district’s revolutionary thinking goes further than hosting international students and a residential program. The district is also drafting a program through which students can graduate from Newcomb Central with both a high school diploma and a

Loss of civility and misguided anger A
home. Many soldiers participated in and witnessed unspeakable acts in a war they didn’t understand. The one solace was they had fought for their country. But when they arrived home, their country spat on them as protestors accosted soldiers who had just left a living nightmare. I wept the day he shared his story. I didn’t understand. Many of the protestors appear highly intelligent on shows documenting that period of history, yet they lashed out at soldiers who had no choice but to obey orders of a government that, in my opinion, consistently sends soldiers to questionable wars and conflicts. The same shedding of civility and misdirected anger can be seen today, but on a different, less deadly front, in the wake of the Great Recession, as so many struggle in an economy that weighs heavily on their shoulders. A war of ideologies is pitting rich against poor, Republican against Democrat, liberal against conservative and atheist against the faithful. People are rightfully angry in a
t the Memorial Day ceremony I attended, sweat running down my back under the hot sun, the American flag flapping in the wind and a nearby pond smooth as a pane of glass, my thoughts drifted to my daughter ’s Opa. Hershel Holmes, good, gentle, kind, forgiving and steadfast, is one of those men who passes through your life, and later, when you think of goodness, you see his face and a smile slips across your own. Once, while we were sitting in his Kansas home, I asked if he’d share a bit of his service in Vietnam to help me out with an English class at Kansas State. He sat calmly in his chair in front of television, and I bent forward at the waist on the couch a few feet away. His story bled tragedy. All Vietnam stories seem to drip agony from the often still open wounds of veterans, a pool of misery at their feet that many of them spend the rest of their lives drowning in. But what stood out the most was Hershel’s recollection of returning
From the Editor’s Desk country pathetically far from even the hint of a livable wage and where health care is disgustingly inadequate and leaves some without care and many beaten by debt. Americans are nourished by an environment pummeled by pollutants killing many of us, taxpayers are being choked to death, true freedom slumps in the lap of the majority and sticks its tongue out at those whose voice is unable to be heard over the roar of oppression, and a small minority of the power-
ful are giggle all the way to the bank. There’s much to be angry over as Americans hiss and spit at each other instead of focusing that very powerful energy on finding a cure for the disease spreading as we divide ourselves. At local school board meetings, I’ve seen taxpayers shout and shake with rage. One man sits in the audience and calls board members names under his breath and picks on teenagers during public comment period. I’ve also watched board members speak down to the public, ridicule those who criticize them and shrug after hearing stories of residents forced out of their homes by rising taxes. It’s true, some taxpayers are being sucked dry. It’s also true that school districts are being ravaged, and the devastating reality is public education has never been funded close to what is needed to be effective for all. But instead of joining forces and taking aim at the culprits, who display a blatant disregard for the ma-
jority of Americans, acting like children who consistently get away with hogging the swings on the playground, we are spitting at each other once again. Other valuable programs are in jeopardy too, and instead of pursuing the crooks who wage costly wars and provide tax breaks to corporations bulging at the seems with money, struggling taxpayers are accosting hard working poor people earning a pittance. They are scowling at victims of unspeakable circumstances and shaking their finger at those blindsided by random horrors, turning their noses up and cursing about entitlements. There is much to be angry about, but average Americans with displaced anger who are footing the bill need to quit spitting at their potential brothers and sisters in arms. As I sit here writing this, I think of Hershel and the lack of civility he experienced and misdirected anger aimed his way, and I realize we haven’t come very far.

Our life coaches, Style and Substance, on life examples Dear Style & Substance: I recently read a quote: “Everybody’s life is either a warning or an example.” What are your thoughts about this quote and what is your advice on creating a life that is an “example”?
Michele Armani and Sally Meisenheimer
That is a great quote! … and one that each may interpret a little differently. We often think of taking a side, in this case being an “example”, and sticking with it. But unfortunately, in our human-ness, we may straddle the line from time to time. We can probably all agree that we have been both, but the idea is to fall more in the “example” column of life. Start observing and listening to people and evaluate for yourself what is a “warning” and what is an “example”. This is not to be achieved by tomorrow or by year ’s end;
however, we believe that we can get a little closer every day. The daily choices made throughout a day can lead to living a life that serves as an “example” of personal values in action. Day to day remind yourself of your best and true self and stay on that course. Being “better” is a sequence of getting off course and getting reoriented in the right direction. A few “warning” behaviors along the way that are corrected lead us to more “example” behaviors. Everything is important. The choices you make about what to eat and your activity levels are the foundations of your health. The words you say or left unsaid create your relationships. Sometimes saying nothing, but just acknowledging is the best response. We can all think of “warnings” we see in the choices and behaviors of ourselves and others. As you have heard us say before, debriefing a meeting, a day, a conversation, a relationship is essential in living the life of “example”. If you are thinking about this quote, chances are you don’t have “big” things to change, but some tweaking to do. To live your life as an example you should define and clarify who you want to be. Have one or several role models of who you would like to become or behaviors you would like to emulate. Use their traits to model yourself after. Sometimes it is a different role model in the business world, the parenting world, the friend world and the relationship world! Think of what

these people would do or would have done in different situations that you have encountered. Give sincere compliments and accept them graciously. A compliment, most genuine, is about how someone acted or responded and is said without fishing for one in return. “I loved the way you handled that”, “That was a tough situation and you really stepped up”, “Thanks so much for coming to my rescue”… Say thank you, when someone does little things, not just big things. You are then contributing to the good examples that others are modeling. Create a ritual as you walk out of the house every morning. These rituals can be serious: a prayer or meditation about a quality you want to cultivate such as honesty, integrity, strength, or compassion. Wear a bracelet or post a reminder of qualities you are striving to achieve. Choose a word every day to guide your interactions for that day. Some rituals can be much more lighthearted, but encouraging just the same. Look in the mirror and say to yourself, “You can do this!” We can all get off track from time to time. Living your life as an “example” and not a “warning” takes reflection and attention.

Each year, we celebrate June Dairy Month to honor Americaâ€™s dairy farm families and the w holesome, nutritious milk they produce. The North Country has a long and proud dairy farming heritage. Dairy farming is the number one agricultural business in Northern New York. The fertile Champlain and St. Lawrence valleys and temperate climate are ideal for growing forages like alfalfa and grass that make up the majority of a dairy cowâ€™s diet. Dairy farmers work hard every day to bring you fresh, great tasting, wholesome milk products. Almost all dairies in Clinton, Essex and Franklin County are family-owned, and are active members of their communities. Farm families take pride in feeding their neighbors and maintaining natural resources. Farmers recognize the importance of preserving the land where they live and work, protecting the air and water they share with the community, and providing the best care for their cowsâ€“the lifeblood of their business.

The North Country has an amazing diversity of dairy farms–from very large, modern dairies with over a thousand cows to small, grass-based organic dairies that have taken a fresh look at simpler practices of the past. Regardless, most dairy farmers, like other business owners, are modernizing and improving their efficiency in order to continue to support their families and provide high-quality and affordable dairy products. Now more than ever, we need to support and appreciate the local farmers that continue to work the land. Farmers are suffering from increasing costs of feed, fuel and transportation–all necessary to produce milk. Regardless of the adversities, they continue to keep our local landscapes scenic, support our local economy and maintain the rural quality of life that we all enjoy in Northern New York. - Peter Hagar, Agriculture Educator, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County

Saranac River Trail opens and could grow to 20 miles By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — The idea dates back to the early 1970s. Today, the trail stretches 1.3 miles along the Saranac River in the City of Plattsburgh. One day, it could run nearly 20 miles to the Town of Saranac. “We are really proud of the fact we were able to support this,” said Mayor Pro Tem James Calnon. “I think this kind of thing is money well spent. This trail is a critical piece of recreation and has economic and social impact.” Work on the multi-use, recreational trail began in the summer of 2010. Workers completed a paved section between South Catherine Street and Broad Street along Seltzer Avenue. Workers repaved Pine Street and turned it into a one-way road for vehicles. The trail is open for all members of the community and is currently 1.3 miles long. A large crowd recently celebrated the grand opening of the trail, which includes a paved section that stretches from George Angell Drive near Plattsburgh High School to the Saranac Street Bride. This completes

phase 1 of efforts to enhance biking and walking access throughout Plattsburgh. “This trail will for years to come be a great source of pleasure and recreation,” said Plattsburgh State Provost James Liszka. “I’m
an avid biker and I can’t wait for this trail to go to Saranac.” Jeff Olsen, architect and planner and consultant for the project, rode on the trail with his son before the celebration.
Trails are about partnerships, he said, and as they grow so do partnerships. “We are standing in a great moment in this community’s history.” It is a moment that is vital for the health of the community, said Mark Fenton, a national public health, planning and transportation consultant and former host of “America’s Walking” series on PBS television. Fenton pointed out that only 20 percent of Americans are achieving the 30 minutes of daily physical activity that national guidelines call for. Further, roughly 365,000 Americans die prematurely each year because of lack of physical activity. “I’m a walking nerd, or at least a nerd for walking,” Fenton said. It’s important communities build places and environments where walking, biking and running happen. The most successful trails, Fenton said, are places people want to hang out at because they see others from town. He travels the country helping communities create such places. “We run the risk of raising the first generation that will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.”
Free resource for resumes, career building and cake making By Stephen Bartlett
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Yohanna Mueller moved to the area two years ago and attends Clinton Community College She loves the library but didn’t know amid stacks of books existed a space that would help her land a job. Yet she walked out with a new and improved resume and better chances at finding work. “They sat with me and helped me.” The North Country Workforce Investment Board and Plattsburgh Public Library partnered to create the Community Computer and Employment Resource Center. The services include more than 500 free online courses available to any Clinton, Essex and Franklin county resident with a valid Plattsburgh Public Library card.

Library patrons participate in courses at their own pace and work with instructors online. They have up to six months to complete a
course. The courses can be accessed from their home computers or by reserving a computer at the Com-
munity Computer and Employment Resource Center. One new program is Recorded Books Universal Class, an online educational service providing courses for people interested in the lifelong pursuit of knowledge for personal or professional reasons. Individuals can gain help starting a new business and benefit from refreshers in biology, psychology, stress management, arts and business. Other courses at the center include Microsoft Excel, word and power point, as well as typing, interviewing and resume writing. “I’m trying o do my resume,” said Emily Adams. “I never came here before, but I think it’s awesome. This is a beautiful library and a great resource for everybody.” Another resource is JobNow, which allows users to upload a resume and cover letter for a professional coach to review and cri-
tique. There are also templates for resumes and cover letters. “People can register for classes, test their skill level in a number of workplace skill areas, make a business card or brochure on Publisher, or learn to create a Pintrest file,” said Workforce Advisor Katie Duffy. The center, along with 34 others statewide, was funded two years ago. Without new funding, it will close at the end of September. “We are trying to get grants to keep the center funded and are working with our community partners,” said Michelle Armani, director of special projects for the North Country Workforce Investment Board. The center has served more than 5,000 people in the community. “The greatest benefit is to have a place where individuals can come for instruction and one-on-one support,” Armani said.

Job Fair helps area unemployed find work By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — After being a stay-at-home wife and mother for six years, Sarah Agnew is returning to the job market. She’s slightly scared, considering the economy and small size of Plattsburgh. But she’s eager to try something new and land a new job. “I am looking right now.” Most recently, her job journey took her to the Job Fair at the West Side Ballroom in Plattsburgh. More than 33 companies, eight more than the last job fair, attended the event. The companies set up booths and resource tables describing careers and providing applications. The event also included a booklet that listed positions and salaries for jobs at companies such as the Clinton
County Advocacy and Resource Center, AFLAC, Bombardier, Champlain Plastics, Citizen Advocates, CVPH Medical Center, CV-TEC, Fedex, High Peaks Dental, Plattsburgh State and WPTZ. More than 200 people filed into the Job Fair within the first hour. There were able to find out what jobs are available in the region, meet with potential employers and network with area business people. “This is the first time I have done this,” said Josh Brown, activities director for Pine Harbour Assisted Living. The event allows the company to answer questions before individuals apply for a position. “It results in a lot of people coming in and filling out applications,” Brown said. The unemployment rate is at around 8.1 percent, according to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistics. It is slightly higher in New York state. In November of 2009, the unemployment rate in the United States was 9.9 percent. While it is down, it is still far higher than pre-recession norms. From 1948 until 2012, the unemployment rate averaged 5.78. It reached an all time high of 10.8 percent in 1982 and a low of 2.5 percent in May of 1953. “It’s scary being out of work, because of the economy,” Agnew said. She has had luck securing jobs through temp agencies, such as ETS. She and her husband returned to the area to put down roots. The Job Fair made it much easier to talk to companies, Agnew said. “I don’t really know what I want right now, but I am looking.”

Ethan Votraw scores victory in Section VII golf tourney By Keith Lobdell
Fri., June 1 - Weds., June 6, 2012
email@example.com WESTPORT — Plattsburgh High senior Ethan Votraw made his fifth Section VII team that will compete at the NYSPHSAA golf tournament this week. What was new this time around was that Votraw will head to Cortland as the Section VII individual champion. “I was hitting the ball well all day and kept playing good golf through the back nine,” Votraw said after carding a two-day 149, two strokes ahead of defending champion John Hickey of AuSable Valley at the Westport Country Club May 24-25. “Coming into this tournament, the goal is always to get to states,” he said. “It’s awesome to finally win the tournament.” The win capped a strong senior year for the Hornet standout, who was part of the soccer teams run to a sectional final and the basketballs state quarterfinal push. “Soccer was a little bit of a letdown, because we wanted more,” Votraw said. “Basketball was a big plus and golf was a great season.” Votraw said the key to his fifth trip to the state tournament will be improving on the greens. “Last year I think I had like five three-putts,” Votraw said of his T-17 performance. “If I can putt better and hit the ball like I am, I should be able to improve on that finish. Like (AVCS coach Chris) Dubay always says, its just a golf course that you need to go out and play.” Saranac Lake, who won the team title by 16 strokes over Elizabethtown-Lewis, had all six of their golfers playing on day two. Dustin Fischer, who birdied three holes on the back nine to card a 158 and Kyle Dora with a 166 both advanced to

Memorial Day from page 1 white tablecloth symbolizing the purity of their intentions when called to war and the lone candle, the frailty of a prisoner alone, standing against the oppressor. The black ribbon on the candle reminds everyone of who will not be coming home, the single rose stands for the loved ones and families who keep the faith, awaiting for the soldier’s return, while the slice of lemon points out the bitter fate if they do not come home. Salt on the plate is symbolic of the family’s tears, and the inverted glass is because they can’t toast with us. “Many of them paid the supreme sacrifice to secure our freedom,” Rock said. Congressman Bill Owens, who served in the Air Force, recalled his father who flew 24 missions over Germany during WWII as a B-24 gunner.
North Countryman - 11
“They see duty, they see a need, and they respond to both.” Margaret “Peg” Breyette remembered when her oldest son, Gregory Lavene, left at 18 to serve as a Marine in Vietnam. She was confident he would return home, but he was injured during the war. “It was great to get him home,” Breyette said. Her granddaughter was just shipped to Afghanistan where she drives a tank. “I am nervous about her, but like I say, it’s up to the good lord.” Floyd Rock was drafted into the Army and in 1967 shipped to Vietnam was a helicopter crew chief and door gunner. “Vietnam was hell.” He lost his first cousin and two of his best friends. Before returning home, he took a bullet in the upper bullet, but fortunately the Morrisonville man was wearing a steel vest. “It’s a sad day because of who was lost there.” Leonard Reyell, also from Morrisonville, enlisted in the Air Force in Many, and in June of 1950 the Korean War broke out.
“We lost a lot of men.” Frenyea was drafted into the Army in 1968. He knew it was coming, but he wasn’t happy about going to Vietnam. “You do what you have to do,” said the former infantry soldier. In 1969, the 19-year-old found himself trudging through 120-degree temperatures in 100 percent humidity, at Dong Tam, a base along the Mekong River. “It was very scary,” he said. “You never knew what was going to happen, and there were a lot of booby traps.” It was also beautiful country, said Frenyea, who can recall waking up to see exotic flowers. Still, it was a tough place and he lost several friends before being injured himself. He recalled one fellow soldier who was good at finding booby traps. The man made it through the war and returned home to later wander into the woods, find a cave and kill himself in it. “Today, I think of all the friends I lost,” Frenyea said. “I always thought I would come back, because if you didn’t think that, you’d go nuts.”
Pfizer Employee Reunion Planned
Walk of Hope from page 1 Festival. Participants donned blue shirts and carried white and blue umbrellas for the walk that started at Trinity Park. The event was held to raise awareness and help find a cure for degenerative neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, Lewy body dementia and ALSO, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Roger and Darlene Long of Peru started the foundation. Mr. Long was diagnosed with ALS after losing his coordination in 2009 and growing weaker as doctors worked to discover why he was facing such difficulties. Today, he can only talk and move a few fingers, but his spirits are high as he fights to raise awareness and money and help others struggling with degenerative neurological disorders. “It’s overwhelming, humbling and comforting,” Mrs. Long said of the turnout at Trinity Park event, which also featured, entertainment, food and services such as massages and more. “I think all of us who lost someone to one of these diseases feels a sense of unity and community. This just reaffirms the wonderful community we live in.” Mrs. Long said the money raised will go toward research pertaining to all such diseases. “Together we can make a difference.” For her part, Cudkowicz said some of the money raised provides funds to conduct high risk studies that should provide breakthroughs. “This gives me the shivers,” she said, standing near Mr. Long. “This is America here. This is the community coming out.” Assemblywoman Janet Duprey stressed the importance of raising money and awareness of ALS and related diseases. Roger and Darlene are true inspirations, she said. She and others also pointed out the high number of cases found in the North Country and the connection to living near the water. Stephanie Desautels’ father Richard was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease four years ago. She helped organize the Plattsburgh Half Marathon, which raises money to help battle Parkinson’s and was on hand to help at the Walk of Hope. Behind Desautels, a field of balloons blew in the wind, each one representing someone who was lost to a neurodegenerative neurological disorder. “We are walking in memory of a close friend of ours,” said Victoria Felio of Peru. “If he were still here he would want us to walk for his uncle, Roger Long.”
