Space to house standing art collections

CV senior Community turns one.

By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ Art has a new home in Plattsburgh, and itÕ s at 30 City. The space, in the former Mountain Riders bike shop across from Trinity Park, is being financed by local business owner and Downtown Business Association President Colin Read. Read is working in conjunction with volunteers from First Weekends in Plattsburgh, and Plattsburgh Renewal Project to revamp the space, which will be opening officially June 6. It will also act as PlattsburghÕ s Downtown Community and

People are encouraged to stop by the Imaginarium as part of Museum Days and check out the new murals. The Imaginarium is on Route 9 South, across from WIRY radio. Lebow, an art student at Plattsburgh State, recently completed a mural at Hot yoga in downtown Plattsburgh. She is available for mural work at Photo by Shawn Ryan

PLATTSBURGH Ñ When you call 911 at any time of the day or night, chances are good that the people showing up to help are non-paid volunteers. The North Country has a long tradition of people volunteering to help their fellow citizens, be it the volunteer fire service or EMS. But numbers are dwindling as the current responder population ages and fewer people are joining to fill their ranks. The fall off in numbers results from a combination of factors, according to Eric Day, Clinton County Director of Emergency Services, and Deputy Fire Coordinator Rick Akey. Ò I think a lot of the time, once a person gets involved itÕ s a lot more than what the person anticipated,Ó said Akey. Ò The impression is itÕ s more of a social operation than it is. ThatÕ s part of it, but itÕ s a professional operation.Ó According to Day, countywide members with between 25 and 40 years of service is the largest single group, followed by one to to five years. The group with from five to 25 years of service is the smallest group, according to the numbers. Though on its face, it would seem like a positive that the second largest demographic is the one to five year demographic,

Environmental stewardship conversation planned Held at Plattsburgh’s UU Fellowship By Teah Dowling PLATTSBURGH Ñ The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Plattsburgh will be hosting a community conversation about environmental stewardship June 13 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The conversation will be an open discussion about the role the community plays as users and caretakers of natural resources, which will be facilitated by Kris Lutters, a member of the UU Fellowship. According to the councils website, Ò New Yorkers were early and passionate stewards of the environment. Over the last two centuries, we have harnessed the power of Niagara Falls, built the Erie Canal and decreed the Adirondack forests remain Ô forever wild.Õ

Ò Today, the environment sustains us economically by providing energy and raw materials and renews us by offering spaces to gather, play and reflect. As we look to the future, New Yorkers continue to grapple with finding a responsible balance between using and protecting our natural resources.Ó Ò We have a lot of natural resources in our area, and our land and water resources are very important,Ó said Mary Dufort, member of the UU Fellowship. The forum, which is part of the New York Council for the HumanitiesÕ Community Conversation series, will open with a short excerpt from Gifford PinchotÕ s essay Ò The Fight for Conservation,” a piece from 1908 that discussed the issues in the uses of natural resources. From his work, Pinchot states that Ò the conservation issue is a moral issue, and the heart of it is: For whose benefit shall our natural resources be conserved-for the benefit of us all, or for the use and profit of a few?”

Dufort said Ò nobody paid any attention back then,Ó and people werenÕ t aware of the issues of the uses of natural resources could bring to future generations. Ò There are situations where people are not conserving for our future generations,Ó Dufort said. Ò ItÕ s dangerous.Ó Once the excerpt of Pinchot’s work is finished, a small discussion will take place in regards to what Pinchot had stated in his essay, asking questions such as whether one agrees with what his definition of conservation is and what the meaning was behind his essay. When the discussion by Pinchot is finished, the forum will lead into the ending question which is, Ò How can we help our community be environmental stewards?” Ò We need to preserve whatÕ s best in our land for the future,Ó Dufort said. Ò Although we canÕ t reserve everything, we shouldnÕ t waste or overdue it.Ó If anyone would like to know more about this event, contact the UU Fellowship at 518-561-6920 or

of art such as photography, paintings, knits, prints, ceramics and more. Paugh said walk-ins are accepted as long as artists get there by 4 p.m. to set up. Ò I didnÕ t want this to be a craft fair where everybody was limited to a 10x10 table or space,Ó Paugh said. Ò I want artists to be comfortable and display anything they want.Ó Farms such as the North Country Creamery and Fledging Crow from Keeseville will provide farm education and crafts. Kim Le Claire and Jeff Cochran, Jordan Rae Paul and Goodrich, Willsboro Library Jam Band and Cariffe will be performing with face painting, kid activities and a 50/50 raffle also taking place. Food will be provided by Mace Chasm Farms, a local farm in Keeseville, NY serving food right off the farm with various refreshments such as organic soda. Paugh said she doesnÕ t know exactly where the proceeds are going to go, but she knows Ò the money will go to something good.Ó Once the art vending stops at 8:30 p.m., the firing of the 500+ glass bottle kiln, created by Paugh will begin.

Paugh, a SUNY Plattsburgh alumna with a degree in studio art with a concentration in ceramics, got the idea to create her kiln after a paper she wrote on Italian artist Karin Putsch-Grassi, a ceramic artist from the Tuscan countryside, for a contemporary art class at SUNY Plattsburgh. Paugh created her first wine bottle kiln a year and a half ago in November. She showed it to her friends in a small demonstration to 10 people in her backyard. Once people heard about the kiln, they wanted to see it. So, Paugh decided to create a second one for this event. “I’m interested to see how it’s going to finish this time, she said. Ò IÕ m planning to go a little bit bigger.Ó For the event, people should bring chairs and dress appropriately for the weather. The event is free and open to the pubic. If anyone would like more information, visit the Facebook page “Local Art Experience” or contact Paugh at paugh.meaghan@ “It’s going to happen rain or shine, and I’m definitely happy that I did it,Ó Paugh said. Ò IÕ m probably going to do it again.Ó

Glass bottle kiln art exhibit to be held in Port Kent By Teah Dowling PORT KENT Ñ Firing to over 2,000 degrees, Meaghan PaughÕ s 500 plus glass bottle kiln will light up the night sky once again at Local Art Experience this weekend. Local Art Experience will take place in the Watson Memorial Park in Port Kent June 7 from 5 to 11 p.m. Ò My main objective is to show people what is going on locally and all the amazing things that are happing,Ó said Paugh, who created the event. According to the Local Art Experience Facebook page, this event Ò is going to be a beautiful evening focused solely around the celebration of arts in our community. Fusing farming education with ‘support local’ ideals will create an original fun filled family orientated night of arts and music.Ó From 5 to 8 p.m., local artists Jessica Bola, Woody Davinson, Shannon Goodrich, Kayley Berezney, Janetta Whittington, Meghan McBreairty and Shane Cariffe will display or sell pieces

North Countyman Editorial



Resource officers: A price the Why would anyone want these jobs? county and schools can’t afford


ssex County Sheriff Richard Cutting is making the push yet again to re-visit the notion of deputies patrolling the halls of area schools with the designation ‘resource officer.’ Following a slew of tragic incidents of school violence Ñ from Sandy Hook to Alton, IL Ñ many districts and municipalities have been quick to make the emotional decision to place full-time law enforcement personnel in the hallways of their buildings. While Essex County schools have been fortunate thus far, we are not blind enough to think that a tragedy is impossible in our own backyard. However, is a $72,000 county or district-funded price tag the answer to maintaining a safe educational environments for our youth? In our opinion, the answer is no. The Essex County Board of Supervisors Ways and Means Committee voted 1458 to 1463 in a weighted vote this week to allow Sheriff Cutting to apply for a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant that would pay up to 75 percent of the salary and benefits for four new resource officers for area schools. The remaining 25 percent of the funding would ultimately be the responsibility of the county. At a time when the county board has struggled to put a lid on spending, how can an unallocated $72,000 be a feasible request? In our opinion, it simply is not. And, what happens to the four new deputies once the COPS grant funding dries up, as it inevitably will? Will the entire cost of the four deputies then have to be born by county taxpayers? We canÕ t see county lawmakers laying anyone off. From 1999 to 2003, resource officers patrolled the halls of schools in Ticonderoga, Moriah, Keene, Crown Point, Schroon Lake, Minerva, Newcomb, Westport and Willsboro. CuttingÕ s request comes with scant statistical information from the past justifying the need for these officers. It is our opinion that if resource officers are seen as a must-have by the school districts, it should be a district-by-district decision and it should be paid for from their own monetary resources. With district budgets barely passing in some places it seems like a reach, a far reach. The argument can be made that with a 13-deputy department, there is no reason deputies or even State Troopers canÕ t make stops into these districts as part of their regular routine and work day, without the need for more officers, more hours and more funding. The schools in our communities have maintained a manageable level of safety in coordinating with local law enforcement about safe practices. In Ticonderoga, a multi-unit drill was conducted earlier in the year to educate law enforcement, first responders, teachers and students alike to respond to internal and external threats. Efforts like those listed above would be beneficial to all districts throughout the county, but asking schools or taxpayers to pick up a sizable tab is not. Student and child safety is always at the forefront of conversation when tragedies like the one in Sandy Hook occur but we can not simply continue to write checks that we have a hard time cashing. While a sum of this amount may seem like a small price to pay to deter possible criminal acts, the story will be exceedingly different in the years to come when budgetary constraints become increasingly more dire. Schools have already implemented a number of safety precautions, including zero tolerance policies, locking doors and taking any and all threats in a more serious manner. The coordination with local law enforcement already serves as a deterrent to crime Ñ a full-time, taxpayer funded bouncer is simply not a safety net we can afford.

Style & Substance: On seeking wellness in your life Dear style & substance, I have been really trying to Ò be wellÓ for the past six months, but seem to be foiled regularly. What is your best way to achieve wellness?

You are the norm; seeking wellness, feeling foiled, and starting over. However, how YOU view wellness may be the key to actually achieving your own personal success. We think of wellness as an overall feeling of satisfaction, good health and contentment. It does not mean that you are free from the strife of life, but that you manage it as it comes along, with less clinging, more coping, and moving through the problems rather than dwelling on them. Two different models that we often suggest are paying attention to the different aspects that make an individual feel balanced: the models are what we simply call The Internal and The External. Eventually both aspects will merge into one, but deconstructing both will allow you to explore your strengths and define areas for improvement. Your exploration within these models will help you in developing your own personalized plan, based on these classifications. For the Internal Model; your whole self can be visualized in quadrants; physical body, intellectual body, spiritual body, and emotional body. Each of these components can be addressed though your internal thoughts, interpretations, and attitudes and external manifestations of your actions. Ò Feed, nourish or waterÓ each por-

tion daily. Ask 3 people how they would feed their physical body and you will get 3 different answersÉ .so, this is your call. Our example would be the physical body requires movement, healthy food and water. The intellectual body hungers for new ideas and stimulating conversation. The spiritual body longs for Ò down timeÓ , silence, gratitude, meditation or prayer. The emotional body desires connection, friendship, love and caring. The External Model focuses more on the outward and tangible. As Martha Graham once said, Ò the body never lies.Ó Evaluate your physical self: How you look, your energy level and how you move, are just a few indicators of your overall health. Create a checklist to help you customize a manageable and realistic plan of action. One of the surest ways to derail your progress is to focus solely on your weight. Your “fighting weight” does not equate thinness; your ideal weight is a reflection of healthful

40 Days for Life To the North Countryman: As Campaign Director and Outreach Coordinator for 40 Days for Life: Plattsburgh, we would like to thank the prayer volunteers who have prayed for the end of abortion during the Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign located at Planned Parenthood of the North Country, NY. Your prayerful presence makes a difference! Many women reject abortion because of the sidewalk counselors who provide information about positive options. After talking with the counselors, many women no longer feel afraid or pressured to abort. We believe the prayers of everyone united help give these woman the courage they need to say yes to life. Just this spring, 728 babies have been spared from abortion and their mothers spared from a lifetime of regret and loss. Women in crisis pregnancies have a right to bring their child into the world by accessing life saving resources in our area: Plattsburgh Pregnancy Center, Birthright, Gabriel Project, Catholic Charities and Care Net. Abortion after care programs are also available in the area: Project Rachel, RachelÕ s Vineyard and Silent No More Awareness. There is help available, you are not alone. We look forward to leading the Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign. Please check back for more information: 40daysforlife. com/plattsburgh Nancy Belzile, Willsboro Nancy Monette, Plattsburgh

is maintainable and healthy. Think of the development of your wellness plan like a Ò buffetÓ or Ò a la carte systemÓ , which gives you the power to create a plan that works for you! Having a visual of what YOUR balanced body looks like helps in your quest. Some suggested visuals; standing firm and perfectly balanced in Ò mountain poseÓ or the thought of the Ò Libra scaleÓ in perfect symmetry. Once you choose this visual for your well being, post it in a place that will serve as a gentle and daily reminder of your work toward wellness. Your daily audit or plan should include: contact with nature, work/earning a living, time with family and friends, recreation/having fun, diet/exercise, meditation/prayer, being cre-

Clarity needed

To the North Countryman: Clarity is needed regarding ElizabethtownÕ s sidewalk situation. That and truth. A town Ò balance sheetÒ is simply a monthly snapshot of a particular fund, such as the General Fund or Highway Fund. The Sidewalk District balance sheet is comprised of assets, liabilities, and equity, which is cash, debt, and fund balance. Ex-Supervisor Bartley said the Sidewalk balance sheet showed $47,000 in early 2014 and declared it sufficient for projects. However, the current years maintenance costs must be paid from this fund. ThatÕ s plowing, sanding, salt, fuel, employees (pay & taxes ), perhaps equipment, and any unforeseen expense. It’s difficult to know how much will be needed, or how much will be left. Bartley stated the highway dept. was too busy during 20122013 to do sidewalk replacement, but they donÕ t do that type of work. ItÕ s contracted out to private companies via a bidding process and itÔ s the responsibility of the Supervisor and the Board, not the highway dept.

Civil War re-enactor at kent-Delord KEESEVILLE Ñ Meet a Civil War Sutler at the Kent-Delord House Museum Days is June 7-8. This is where all the local museums in the region are free and open to the public. This year, a costumed interpreter will be on the grounds of the Kent-Delord House Museum. John Peterson portrays a Civil War sutler who goes by the name Saul Goode. During the Civil War regiments in the Union Army were authorized to contract a sutler to be sort of a store in camp when the soldiers were not on the march. Among the things the sutler would sell would be needles and thread, writing paper and envelopes, candles and soap, and tasty things to eat like cheese, crackers and sardines. Typically soldiers paid on credit against their next pay.

Bartley states that the Sidewalk tax for 2013 was $19,980, but the tax warrant shows it was $20,850. The $19,980 is the appropriation ( budget amount ) for 2014. She then reduced the 2014 tax to $2,980, to pay for a $19,980 appropriation. Bartley claims the town board decided this, but I donÕ t recall any such discussion. Sidewalk replacement is expensive and borrowing for it will make it more expensive, so the taxpayer cost is now higher. Reducing the Sidewalk tax by 86 percent and therefore depleting fund balance by $17,870 was a mistake. A mistake the new board must now deal with. Unfortunately thereÕ s worse. For example, the illegal swap of a town road, which became BartleyÕ s private driveway, on Dec. 27, 2013, in a 9:30 AM meeting. It violated NYS Conflict of Interest Law. Ken Fenimore, Elizabethtown

Junior docents program encourages young historians By Shawn Ryan CHAMPLAIN Ñ This region is alive with history, if you know where to look. Historian Jan McCormick is trying to bring this history out of the box, and make it accessible to as many people as possible, especially children. SheÕ s putting her love for history into a project called History out of the Box, which brings everything from hands-on weaving demonstrations, to archeology and history themed birthday parties, to interested organizations, schools, and whoever would like to learn more about history hands-on. She also offers an actual archeology dig at a 1814 homestead on her property. Ò History is taught today the way it always has been. I want to teach the real history,Ó she says. Ò How people actually lived; whatÕ s the story behind the story.Ó McCormick has a MasterÕ s in Public History, and has worked in museums from Deadwood South Dakota to Clinton County. She pursued grants for her projects to bring her love of history to life, but found that she didnÕ t qualify if she wasn’t affiliated with a museum or historical society. Ò I want to instill the love of history, but I still need to pay my bills,Ó she says. She conceived of the idea of a history program that can come to you, or can provide

camps to children to come to for hands-on history learning. With ideas like open-hearth cooking, historic candle dipping, maps and mapping, garbology demonstrations, and history treasure hunts, the history is as alive as your imagination is willing to make it. More than just teaching history, McCormick is intent on helping to bring out young historians. She has paired with the Clinton County Historical Association for a junior docents program, to teach a new generation the love for museums that she has. She has been doing junior docents since her days in Deadwood, and finds the program rewarding for both parents and children as well. Ò Quite often some of the parents got involved as well working as docents with their children, and helping out at programs and events as well,Ó she said. Ò Having young people help out on tours, programs and events bring the museums to life. Audiences and visitors enjoy having a full picture of life in the past that includes the roll of the children.Ó The junior docents assist with events, help with tours, do role playing in costume, even help with parking cars at the museum. The children, she says, end up taking ownership of the museum they are helping out at, and it helps strengthen their love of history. She has worked with junior docents from the age of six up to 17. More information on McCormickÕ s programs can be found at

2-year-old child found in Chazy home containing meth lab By Shawn Ryan CHAZY Ñ Chazy based Troopers got more than they bargained for when they responded to a domestic dispute May 30. At about 5:30 p.m., troopers were called to a domestic dispute at 276 Ridge Road in the town of Chazy. When they responded to the residence, along with the reported combatants, they discovered numerous precursor materials used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Further investigation revealed that the two occupants of the residence, 28-year-old Ashley M. Castine and 30-year-old Richard J. Welch were actively cooking the drug at the time.

Castine and Welch, however, were not the only people present in the red and white two story hovel while the potentially deadly drug was being produced. The suspectsÕ 2-year-old child, who was not identified by police, was also present. Castine and Welch were arrested and charged with unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine third degree, a class D felony, endangering the welfare of a child and possession of a hypodermic instrument. Both were arraigned in the Chazy town court and were sent to the Clinton County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail, or $20,000 bond. Their reappearance date is scheduled for June 10 at 5:30 p.m. The investigation is ongoing, and Troopers said more charges

are pending. Troopers did not indicate who took possession of the 2-year-old child.

Fire Services From page 1

that is also the group with the highest turnover. Many of the people who join, Day says, do not stay through the five years. Ò WeÕ re just barely covering attrition.Ó Some departments, he says, have gone to Explorer Troops or Junior Fire Fighter programs, to attract younger members who might become full-fledged members when they are old enough. The programs, he says, have become quite successful in the departments using them. “We have realized quite a few fire fighters from that program,” says Akey. “In Dannemora alone we have eight who were Explorers. One is now a Captain and one is a Lieutenant.Ó Another idea Day has toyed with is the possibility of marketing the volunteer service to former service members. With the countryÕ s decade long wars winding down, and a massive downsizing of the armed forces on the horizon, the emergency services might offer former military personnel the same type of feeling of duty and service that they enjoyed in the military. And, he says, the fire and EMS services still adhere to a para-military framework attractive to many who have previously served. But, Day cautions, they still will have to compete with the same issues of family, work and leisure time that are proving a hurdle in their recruiting efforts. Though volunteers, the fire and EMS services are more highly trained and specialized, and have more specialized equipment, than ever before. With this specialization comes a commitment for more and more time. Especially troubling is finding volunteers who can respond to a call during the day, when most people are at work. Ò Society puts an awful demand on our services, and getting the staff, and the trained staff to do it, is sometimes hard,Ó said Day. Day recommends that anyone thinking of pursuing the fire or EMS services, regardless of their age, stop by a Monday night meeting at their local fire station, or contact a member they may know.

Visitor Center From page 1

Visitor Center. Ò This row is turning out to be a really cool row of shops,Ó he said about the downtown block that houses 30 City and several local businesses. Along with offering information on events and the history surrounding Plattsburgh, the new space will act as a standing art gallery, displaying art from SUNY Plattsburgh. Read hopes that it will act as an anchor for First Weekend art walks, and also as a gathering place for other not-for-profits in the area. It will feature Wi-Fi which will be available both in the space and on the adjoining sidewalk. Ò The opportunity was ripe to get it (the space), but if we waited for a bunch of non-profits to organize as 501c3s, it would have been rented to someone else,Ó Read said. Starting on the evening of June 6, 30 City will welcome community members, families and visitors with an art opening presented by two graduating seniors from SUNY PlattsburghÕ s Art Department. Ò WeÕ re ecstatic at the opportunity weÕ re giving our young artists in presenting their work so close to their graduation date,Ó says Norm Taber, Chair of the SUNY Art Department. Ò These two artists have worked hard at their craft and weÕ re all

excited to showcase their efforts as well as the partnerships that have been created with the groups in Downtown PlattsburghÓ . Artists Jocelyn Jabaut, BFA & Leah Junquera, BFA are graduates from SUNY Plattsburgh and are looking forward to showcasing their art in the community. Jabaut, a Plattsburgh resident, concentrated in painting with a complement in print making. Her focus creates abstracted landscape paintings using oil paint on panel. Print making techniques include intaglio, relief, and woodblock monotypes. Ò In searching for a rhythm that stuns me, I look to the landscape,” Jabaut says. “I revisit places that invite memories and emotions to be recalled. In translating that which inspires, initially I borrow hues from the natural world.Ó Leah Junquera adds, “My work is a tribute to the past, these memories and moments dance around what has been forgotten and left behind. The structural references in my work relate to the strong figures who have raised me.” Junquera received her Bachelors of Fine Arts Plattsburgh State University this spring with a concentration in painting and sculpture. Junquera hails from Northville and has exhibited all over New YorkState. 30 City, Downtown PlattsburghÕ s new Community and Visitor Center will welcome visitors of all ages on Friday, June 6th from 730pm - 9pm.
