Mall decides to go tobacco free inside and out.

By Stephen Bartlett stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — An elderly homeowner verbally quoted an estimate of $13,000 for remodeling her home received a bill for $25,000 after the work was completed. Another homeowner was shocked when a company filed a lien on his house for $10,000 for material used by a contractor but not paid for from contract funds. These situations could have been avoided through proper use of New York state’s Home Improvements Contracts Law. Because of these and other cases, State Attorney General Eric T. CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Law enforcement runs for Special Olympics By Stephen Bartlett stephen@denpubs.com ROUSES POINT — They started in Rouses Point, a large group of individuals from law enforcement focused on a sole cause as they stretched their legs in preparation. They pushed themselves, running to Plattsburgh and stopping at the steps of City Hall, tired, but more invigorated and determined than when they started. It was about awareness, and about raising money, but mostly it was about giving to a group of people who sometimes need it the most. “We do the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics yearly,” said Bernie Bullis, Troop B Recruitment Officer for the New York State Police. The run is the largest grassroots fundraising and public awareness campaign for

Strangulation sentence handed down to Carte By Stephen Bartlett

stephen@denpubs.com PERU — He broke her finger and her arm, punched her repeatedly, smashed a pizza in her face and choked her. Now, Bryan J. Carte will spend five years in jail, according to a press release from the Clinton County District Attorney’s office. His then girlfriend would not cooperate with law enforcement, but that didn’t prevent the now 49-year-old from being convicted and ultimately sentenced to jail. On March 5, 2011, Carte broke his girlfriend’s finger. A little more than two weeks later, he broke her arm. Then, on April 3, Carte smashed a pizza into her face before choking the woman and repeatedly punching her. His girlfriend suffered multiple abrasions, a concussion, bruises to her face and a sprained knee. Still, she was not cooperative with the Clinton County District Attorney’s office. That didn’t stop prosecutors from moving forward to ensure justice was served and protect victims who at times refuse to protect themselves. The trial stretched over five days, and the jury deliberated for five hours, in the end finding Carte guilty of second-degree strangulation and three counts of third-degree assault. At the time, Carte faced more than seven years in prison. Recently, Clinton County Judge Patrick McGill sentenced Carte to five years in jail for the felony charge. He was sentenced to one year in jail for each lesser charge, to be served concurrently. Carte was further ordered to pay $1,500 in fines and $375 in mandatory surcharges. McGill issued an order of protection for the victim that expires in 2025. Assistant District Attorney Douglas Collyer prosecuted the case, while Carte was represented by attorney Mark Cowen. “We are pleased with the sentence handed down by Judge McGill,” Collyer said.

Mall stops smoking on its properties By Stephen Bartlett

stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The scribbling and hand drawn pictures on the wall near the food court tell stories of death and sickness, as well as triumph and salvation, moments in time with tobacco. And at Champlain Centre in Plattsburgh, that’s as close as anyone is going to get to smoking on the property. All properties of Pyramids Management Group, LLC, owner and operator of 15 shopping malls throughout New York and Massachusetts will be 100 percent tobacco-free on May 31, “World No Tobacco Day.” “The goal is to create a healthier environment for our tenants and our shoppers and our mall employees,” said Dave Napolitan, Champlain Centre General Manager. The tobacco-free policy includes all tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes and chewing tobacco, and any other similar substances or instruments that are lit

or burning, such as electronic cigarettes. The policy includes entire properties, inside and outside, including all entry points, hallways, sidewalks, loading dock areas, parking lots and construction areas. It applies to all mall associates, tenant employees, vendors, delivery people, contractors, subcontractors and guests. “There is a lot of research indicating the health risks from exposure to smoke, even in outdoor facilities,” Napolitan said. Cigarette smoking accounts for an estimated 443,000 deaths each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In fact, more deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than from HIV, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides and murders combined. Smoking causes acute myeloid leukemia, as well as cancer of the bladder, cervix, esophagus, kidney, larynx, lungs, mouth, pancreas, throat and stomach. Cancer can further cause infertility, preterm delivery, stillbirths,

low birth weight and sudden infant death syndrome. Pyramid has been working with regional tobacco control partnerships funded by the New York State Tobacco Control Program and the American Cancer Society on implementing the new policy. “We strongly believe this new

policy will not only support our employees and guests who are sensitive to secondhand smoke or are trying to quit smoking, but it also will provide a more enjoyable and healthier shopping experience to the millions of visitors who come through our doors each year,” said James L. Soos, Director of Asset

Management, Pyramid Management Group. Pyramid has been providing opportunities for mall employees and the public to obtain smoking cessation information and counseling. Champlain Centre held four classes during the month of May to provide anyone interested in trying to quit smoking access to industry experts and resources. “I think we felt an obligation since we are implementing such a dramatic policy,” Napolitan said. “The classes were conducted by the North Country Smoking Cessation Center out of Saranac Lake.” He believes some smokers may be resistant to the policy, but overall expects full cooperation. “This policy means shoppers and their kids won’t have to walk a gauntlet of harmful secondhand smoke just to enter the mall,” said Alvaro Carrascal, Senior Vice President of Cancer Control, American Cancer Society of New York and New Jersey. “Secondhand smoke is a known carcinogen with no safe level of exposure.”

North Countryman Editorial

Public forum should have been Warning: Danger ahead allowed before Horace Nye vote

W

hile we have already stated we agree with the move to privatize Horace Nye Nursing Home in Elizabethtown (Horace Nye: it’s time to sell, April 7 edition), we do believe that Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava has a valid point: there should have been a public meeting on the matter. During the May 29 Essex County Ways and Means Committee meeting, supervisors were deadlocked in a resolution offered by Scozzafava, a staunch supporter of keeping Horace Nye as a county-operated facility, to hold a public informational meeting before a final vote was cast. Nine supervisors voted for the measure, while the other nine (Elizabethtown’s Margaret Bartley, Board Chairman Randy Douglas of Jay, Keene’s William Ferebee, Newcomb’s George Canon, Board Vice Chair Roby Politi of North Elba, St. Armand’s Joyce Morency, Ticonderoga’s Deb Malaney, Westport’s Daniel Connell and Wilmington’s Randy Preston) voted against, leaving Scozzafava to mumble a question we tend to agree with. Why would any elected official ever vote to not allow the public to speak on something? In Washington County, supervisors held a series of public meetings on the sale of their county-owned nursing home facility and public health programs. Not only did they hold public information meetings at the county seat in Fort Edward, but they held them in other locations throughout the county. Eventually, they voted to enter into contract negotiations with Fort Hudson Health Systems out of Fort Edward. A public information meeting would allow the Horace Nye Task Force to go out into the community and present their findings to residents of the county, findings that led to a recommendation (not a resolution, as Scozzafava tried in vain to contend during the May 29 Task Force committee meeting) to sell the facility to Centers for Specialized Care. Meetings could be held at the county

seat in Elizabethtown, the Lake Placid Conference Center, the Keeseville Fire Department, the Ticonderoga High School auditorium and Minerva Central School. These meetings would remove what appears to some as a shroud of secrecy over the whole process. At a time when Gov. Andrew Cuomo has tried to make local government more transparent, the Essex County Board of Supervisors appears to be less in voting not to hold a public meeting. We know there is an argument that the time would only be taken up by upset employees or over-zealous supporters, but this is where a strong meeting leader uses their gavel to ensure that meetings remain civil, on point, and within a time limit (say, two minutes per speaker and 30 minutes for public comment, allowing at least 15 people to make their fellings felt). Those who do not respect the rules need to be deemed out of order and removed from the site. This is not new turf for the county board. In their most recent controversy, the 2012 Essex County Budget, the board held a public hearing. While the state says a public hearing on the budget is required, they also took the extra step of holding the meeting at night in order to accommodate more people, something they did not need to do. The second thing that a public meeting would have done is clear up any of the misinformation out there. We feel that the Horace Nye Task Force and subcommittee have done their due diligence in looking at the potential buyers and stand behind their recommendation to sell to Centers for Specialized Care. We feel that a public hearing would put more people at ease over the issue than the current course of not having one. This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Lou Varricchio, Keith Lobdell, Stephen Bartlett, Andy Flynn, and John Gereau.

W

hat are we to make of the current economic conditions facing our country and possibly the world? Day to day we read and hear conflicting information. One day it appears the economy, while not fully recovering, is slowly improving while we chug along to better days and the next day it appears we could be heading for economic disaster and total collapse. I’m no economist, but I am an optimist and the optimist in all of us wants to believe that an economic recovery is both real and on the near horizon — that our elected officials and corporate-appointed economic gurus have our best interest in mind. After all, the next big boom could be just around the corner with a breakthrough in energy, hardware, software, nanotechnology, genetics or a major medical health cure for cancer or the common cold. We just need the reassuring green light from some higher authority. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the massive debt and our credit issues will one day have to be reckoned with and brought under control. If we don’t proactively adjust our spending and sense of value to a more realistic scope, the force of the market will do it for us, and may crush more than our economy in the process. So what do we as average citizens do? Should we be hiding plastic bags full of cash or precious metals such as gold or silver under the porch to provide a financial safety net or should we be hording canned and dried food goods in the basement and planting a survival garden to insure our food supply? How do we responsibly go about our lives today while preparing for what’s to come tomorrow? By some reports many Americans are doing these things and more. They are called “preppers,” and we are told their numbers are growing. This movement has become so popular that there are now even television shows being filmed about “preppers.”  The most popular is probably “Doomsday Preppers” on the National Geographic Channel. But is that really the best solution at this stage? Let’s be realistic, if we all started doing those things and more on a mass scale, we could probably be assured of driving the economy into a collapse. We need to apply common sense and yet still be realistically attentive to what’s going on around us. If you think

about the tough times in our history and in your life the solution was almost always community Dan Alexander support based. Thoughts from Only when we Behind the Pressline join forces and pull together are we at our strongest. Supporting our local economy keeps locals working and it keeps the dollars flowing in our communities and creates jobs. Hiding money under the porch or in your mattress removes it from circulation and deadens its affect on keeping the economy flowing. America was built on optimism and the hope of a better and free future. Our ancestors didn’t travel here without taking risks and none made it solely on their own. No society lasts forever but we shouldn’t be so anxious to assume our demise is imminent. Optimism, teamwork, disciplined ethics and hard work in building a strong nation are to me a far better solution than thinking I can survive on my own while the nation and world collapses around me. We do need to change some of our ways but the key is collectively recognizing our strengths, acknowledging that we all need to make sacrifices and focusing more energy on building our collective resources and what each of can do to meet the common good for all. President Kennedy said it all when he said, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” Our good days are not behind us, but we certainly took for granted the path that those before us had to travel to get us to those good days. In my opinion, we can either return to the values that made us a nation envied by the world and take the lead in returning the world back to a stable economy or we can selfishly look to protect our own personal interest by hording and demanding far more than we need or in some cases deserve, while not heeding the large, neon flashing signs of danger and decline as we travel past them thinking only of ourselves.

All hail pretty conversations please S

itting in a local establishment people gather in for snacks, refreshments and socialization, I watched a woman, probably in her 40s, and according to societal standards, pretty, with curly blond hair and a slender physique, engaged in conversation with a quirky, slightly dirty and unattractive man, according to societal standards. Sadly, societal standards are often created by the privileged with utter disregard to those who fall outside those standards. In general, someone with privilege can fall under several categories, including being white, possessing wealth, lacking any disability, being heterosexual, being attractive, etc… Privilege does not make one better, it simply means one is not afflicted with the same struggles individuals who do not fall into those and other categories endure. And that is not necessarily because there is something wrong with individuals who do not fall in those categories, but that society often rejects and forces struggles upon them or adds to the

weight of their burdens, if indeed they are burdened. For example, being gay should not be a burden in and of itself, but many in society make it a burden with their judgments. Disabilities, on the other hand, can sometime be a burden, and then the struggle intensifies when many in society cast judgment or act cruelly toward such individuals. If you don’t believe me, ask openly gay individuals if they have ever been accosted in any way and follow a developmentally disabled individual in a wheelchair through the mall, especially in the food court, and take note of how many people stare and openly display their discomfort. Anyway, it was clear this woman in the local establishment wanted nothing to do with conversing with the man. I found this strange, because I noticed her seconds earlier enthusiastically conversing with others on her societal standard scale. Apparently talking with this man was tipping the scale toward a pit of filth, according to her upturned nose, narrowed eyes and body that was somehow retreating yet managing

From the Editor’s Desk to remain on the stool she sat on. It’s apparently difficult for attractive, well-spoken people to converse with less attractive people who fumble their words, don’t dress in the latest trends and dropped out of pretentious communication 101. By the way, please don’t mistake “well-spoken” for intellectual depth. Perhaps proper would have been a more suitable word to use. For the record, the ugly man uttered more of any worth in five seconds than she said her entire time in the es-

tablishment. Eventually, the slightly dirty and ugly man ceased his conversation and exited. She began talking behind his back and eliciting pity before the door closed behind him, like she had just spent an hour in some secret CIA torture chamber. As I watched her struggling to recover, I learned something about myself. I learned that despite my claims to open-mindedness, I’m extremely intolerant at times. Maybe it’s from suffering from my own bouts if mental illness in running a society that is kinder to an individual missing a limb, because that is something they can see, or someone with a heart defect, because that is something they understand. Yet they are often intolerant of people with a brain defect, because they don’t understand or believe it, despite the fact the brain is just another organ. Perhaps it is from having a son with special needs and enduring judgment because I don’t let my 5-year-old walk, despite the fact him telling me “more” while

holding him – because he can’t walk – is a greater accomplishment than a child of the parent casting judgment making a soccer goal. Maybe it’s because I have a family member who announced she was gay, and other family members express their anti-gay views, hurting her under the guise of free expression and saying, “toughen up.” Yes, I am clearly intolerant, because at times, when they say that, I am thinking, “The next time you are enduring any sort of pain, instead of relieving it, I am going to sit back and say, ‘Toughen up.’” Wait, I just remembered the woman I spoke of earlier. It must have been painful for her privileged self to converse with an uglier individual. And I am pretty sure I once wrote a column about two wrongs not making a right. So I guess I am an intolerant hypocrite at times. There you have it. Reach Editor Stephen Bartlett at stephen@denpubs.com.

Our life coaches, Style and Substance, on shades of black Dear Style & Substance: I dress mostly in varying shades of black for the winter months and am now thinking I look warn out and boring. I am a 47 year old woman. I have no idea how to change things up and give my wardrobe a little splash. Can you help me get started? We like to use color as a great way to liven things up and to create a new mood or direction in your life course! If color is frightening; use black, white, navy, tan or brown as your “palate” (even in redecorating) and add splashes to it. If you are reticent, try subtle colors to start. A scarf, tie, handkerchief, necklace, shoes or a belt that is interesting and colorful is a great place to start. For our bolder friends, try accessories or articles of clothing in deeper shades or with brighter patterns. Either way, use this quick reference of color to meaningfully and purposefully add to your wardrobe or surroundings. RED: personal power, vitality, honesty, courage and con-

fidence. ORANGE: creativity, intimacy, and athleticism. YELLOW: charisma, speaking your mind, and good humor. GREEN: love, trust, independence, balance, self control and adaptability. BLUE : leadership, articulation and decisiveness. VIOLET: intuitive thinking, wisdom, clarity, practical problem solving and self-love. Remember when decorating, shopping or looking in your closet, hold up a shade to the light to see the effect the color has on you! Look in the mirror and check your reflection – you should like what you see – keep trying until you hit that perfect, colorful note.

Disabled son victim of abuse in state care By Stephen Bartlett

stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — David Dechene’s son is 51 today and this August will have lived in group homes for 30 years. Mr. Dechene still has nightmares over what occurred during some of David Jr.’s time spent in the care of the state of New York. One caregiver would sit across from his son, turn his stone ring over and smash David Jr. on top of the head with it. If David Jr., who is developmentally disabled, cried out, the caregiver kicked him in the shin. Eventually, Sunmount Developmental Disabilities Services put him on leave before moving the caregiver, who had disabled children of his own, to another facility. “Sadly, there are some who fall through the cracks and we don’t want them in the system,” said the Tupper Lake man, speaking in Plattsburgh. Last year, the New York Times ran a series of stories after conducting an investigation of the treatment of the developmentally disabled in New York state and how money is spent on their care. It found widespread problems in more than 2,000 state-run homes, detailing residents who were sexually abused, beaten and tormented by employees who were often simply transferred to another state-run facility. In 2009, fewer than 5 percent of roughly 13,000 abuse allegations were referred to law enforcement. In 2006 in Hudson Falls, an employee was

discovered in the room of a severely disabled 54-year-old woman, standing between her legs with his pants around his ankles and her diaper pulled down. The employee was transferred to another state-run home. A group-home employee in Western New York in 2007 grabbed a woman in his care and threw her against a fence and then a wall. He was moved to another home. In 2007, a small, frail 13-year-old boy with autism sitting in the back seat of a van was slowly crushed to death by a state employee who taunted the boy as he died. The employee was a high-school dropout with a criminal record and had previously abused the boy. The boy’s death led to the passage of Jonathan’s Law, which requires the state to disclose incidents of abuse to parents. Not only were many employees merely transferred and abuses not reported to law enforcement, but there are instances when the state put more effort into investigating and punishing whistleblowers than the employees they reported for abusing the developmentally disabled. Dechene hopes Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s legislation that would provide further protections for the developmentally disabled and create a state agency dedicated to protecting the vulnerable population is passed. David Jr. went to another group home that seemed to be working out until the father received a call that his son had fallen in the shower and was unconscious and being transferred to Adirondack Medical Center. The caregiver said David Jr. fell when he reached for a towel. David Jr. requires round-the-clock supervision.

“I didn’t believe him,” Mr. Dechene said of the caregiver. Three weeks later he went to visit David Jr. and found his son naked in the shower by himself while the caregiver sat in the living room, talking on his cell phone. When Mr. Dechene tried to bring the inci-

dent up at a group meeting, he was told it was not the appropriate venue. The caregiver was moved to another location. “The abuse and neglect my son endured was 100 percent preventable,” Mr. Dechene said.

State says efforts will help those with special needs By Stephen Bartlett

stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Last year, the New York Times uncovered horrific conditions in the caring for people with developmental disabilities. Workers were abusing the vulnerable population, at least one individual was killed, and the state chose to transfer abusive employees from home to home instead of contacting law enforcement. The state has responded with legislation that would create a new agency dedicating to protecting individuals with special needs, and

while some are criticizing some aspects of the legislation, others are heralding it as long overdue. “This legislation is very comprehensive in beginning to address abuse issues,” said Courtney Burke, Commissioner of the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, during a recent visit to Plattsburgh. The State Senate Unanimously passed Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s legislation to protect developmentally disabled and mentally ill New Yorkers. It is in the Assembly now, where Democrats are negotiating some changes. The legislative session ends June 21.

More than 1 million New Yorkers reside in state operated, certified or licensed facilities and programs, including assisted living, adult homes and institutional care. Last year, those individuals were allegedly abused more than 10,000 times. “These things do happen,” Burke said. “This is about a few bad apples.” Yet those “few bad apples” have seemingly gotten away with an array of horrific abuses, including sexual, emotional and physical abuse, sometimes resulting in death. To ensure this trend does not continue and that the individuals respon-

sible are brought to justice instead of shuffled around the system, Burke said the new legislation will create a consistent set of safeguards for all vulnerable populations, to protect them against abuse and neglect. The new standards will ensure the definition of abuse is consistent across agencies, hire special prosecutors and create a statewide 24-hour hotline. The new legislation will create a new state agency called the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. The agency will have the ability to not only investigate, but prosecute cases in-

volving the abuse and neglect of individuals who have difficulties communicating. The legislation would also create a registry of individuals found responsible for acts of abuse and neglect. Burke said this addresses past issues, such as the lack of trained investigators, employees not being held accountable, providers not given consistent guidance, and staff not trained in reporting instances of abuse and neglect. She pointed out that abuse can be physical, sexual and psychological and can include improper use of restraints. “This tries to make sure

there is consistency across all agencies,” Burke said. Advocates for individuals with special needs worry about a state agency continuing to have control over reports of abuse and neglect and want more direct access given to local law enforcement. They say their concerns are based on decades of failures, many of which were revealed by the stories by the New York Times. Burke is confident the bill will pass and be fully implemented by April 2013. “The governor knows millions of lives are at stake,” she said. “If you do support it, let your elected officials know.”

stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Pregnant, the prison where Patty Waldron worked as a dental assistant no longer felt safe. She left Clinton Correctional Facility after 10 years, remained home for roughly 10 months and emerged to evolve from customer at the Coffee Cat in Plattsburgh to owner. In 1997, the small establishment on Margaret Street became the Koffee Kat. “I wanted to put my own personal spin on it,” said the 48-year-old who today makes coffee drinks in a larger location down the street and takes her business on the road. Waldron was recently 1 of 200 people who attended a Celebration of Women in Business, hosted by the North Country Chamber of Commerce. The luncheon celebrated women at work in the North Country and provided the opportunity for attendees to network and gain business tips. “We are lucky to have so many talented and hardworking women in the North Country,” said Jody Parks, Executive Vice President of the North Country Chamber. Many people advised Waldron against buying the Coffee Cat, telling her it was risky. She had never been a business owner, but the coffee trend was starting and she wanted to introduce the new espresso drinks to the area. “I know myself well enough, and when I start obsessing about something, it is going to happen,” she said. “Plus, I love people. I thought I had something to offer and they had something to offer me.” Opening Koffee Kat was scary, but her employees trained her and her coffee company walked her through the history of coffee. “I needed to produce a

quality product and perfect my knowledge on coffee.” She became more comfortable with the business six months in and started to see what her customers were ready for as she brought West Coast trends to the area. “I knew I had made the right choice.” As time passed, Waldron brought on a group of employees that now have been her friends for 15 years. The business no longer owned her, but she owned it and was comfortable leaving at the end of the day and being a mother. Customers quickly fell in love with Koffee Kat, which she appreciated, though she was busting at the seams. So seven years ago, when a building further down Margaret Street came up for sale, a long blank space of white sheet rock, she bought it. As she walked around the place she envisioned a design that was fun and attracted lively

people but still felt cozy. They reopened on Mayor ’s Cup and were packed. “What I didn’t expect, were all the new customers who came in.” Waldron appreciates how the business has expanded, embraces the daily challenges and has made lifelong friends. She also operates Koffee Kat on wheels, which was inspired while she was watching the reality series The Great Food Truck Race. “I started thinking how fun it would be to make coffee espresso on the road.” With the help of M. Dylan Raskin, the business became a reality and opened a year ago. They have a daily route and also do weekend activities. Waldron has never looked back since opening Koffee Ket. “I’m a people pleaser at heart, and it thrills me to put whip cream on their drinks.”

stephen@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Paul A. Grasso, Jr. will take over as President and CEO of The Development Corporation starting June 11, 2012. The position opened when Adore Kurtz retired earlier this year. Dr. Frederick Woodward has been serving as interim director of the Development Corporation since then. “In December 2011, The Development Corporation celebrated 50 years of leading economic development in Clinton County,” said Nina D. Coolidge, Chair of The Development Corporation’s Board of Directors. “We look forward to beginning a new chapter in the history of The Development Corporation under Mr. Grasso’s leadership.” Since 2007, Grasso has served as Executive Director of the North Country Workforce Investment Board in Plattsburgh. Before coming to Plattsburgh, he spent more than 25 years in workforce development and government relations in San Diego, California. Grasso served as Chief of Staff for the Mayor of San Diego and was vice president and COO of the San Diego Workforce Partnership. In addition, he was a Principal at Cullyhanna Consulting, the Director of Government Relations at San Diego Data Processing Corporation, Chief of Staff member of the City of San Diego and Executive Director of San Diego’s Vietnam Veterans Program. Grasso earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Southern Connecticut University. “I have often said that workforce and economic development are two sides of the same coin,” Grasso said. “I have enjoyed working with The Development Corporation in the past, and as President and CEO I look forward to creating and maintain strategic business partnerships that will

serve to both create and retain quality jobs in Clinton County.” The Development Corporation, a nonprofit economic development corporation with 50 years of economic development activity in Clinton County, develops industrial parks, markets the county for new business investments, and works to retain and expand local industry. The corporation also administers the Clinton County Industrial Development Agency and Clinton County’s Foreign Trade Zone #54. Kurtz began working for The Development Corporation in 1995 and served as president and CEO from 1996 until her retirement on Jan. 17. She helped position The Development Corporation as the leading economic development enti-

Torch Run from page 1 Special Olympics in the world. In addition to carrying the “Flame of Hope” to their local and state Special Olympic games, law enforcement organizes and conducts fundraising initiatives such as polar plunges, merchandise sales and golf outings. In 2010, the combined events raised more than $38 million internationally. Last year in New York, the events raised more than $1 million for Special Olympics’ athletes. Special Olympics New York has more than 55,000 athletes across the state who compete and train in 22 Olympic style sports throughout the year at no cost to themselves or their families. For the 26th year, law enforcement will carry the Special Olympics torch throughout various communities leading up to the opening ceremony at the state Summer Games. The cauldron will be lit on June 15 in Buffalo.

ty in Clinton County. During her tenure, the organization’s net worth grew 248 percent. Woodward was appointed interim director on Jan. 17 and served as a member of the Board of Directors in 2008. From 2007-2009, he served as interim president of Clinton Community College. “On behalf of The Development Corporation staff and Board of Directors, I would like to publically express our gratitude to Fred for doing a superb job of guiding the organization during this interim period,” Coolidge said. “We could not have asked for a better and smoother transition to a new full-time president of The Development Corporation, and that is in large part a result of Fred’s fine leadership.” Since its inception, more than $52 million has been raised through law enforcement events in New York, providing training, equipment, venues, uniforms and transportation for hundreds of Special Olympics athletes. “We run to raise awareness for those who are sometimes not able to,” Bullis said. “We are part of the community and it is a way to give back to the community.” Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. It provides year-round training and competitions to more than 3.7 million athletes around the world. The Special Olympics provides sports, training opportunities, discipline and opportunities to socialize, said Kaila Horton, Special Olympics New York Director of Development. “They grow and learn from that.” For more information, go to www.specialolympicsny.org.

Schneiderman, during his first visit to Plattsburgh since taking office, announced settlements with 47 local home improvement contractors after they were allegedly found in violation of the law. Schneiderman said the contractors committed widespread violations of the law, including failure to provide written contracts or honor the most basic terms of the consumers’ work agreements. “It happens all too often, homeowners hire contractors without having a signed contract state that work will be done and how long it will take,” he said. “And many times, they end up with a much larger bill than expected, or with a project that was never started or completed.” Article 36-A of the General Business Law requires that every home improvement contractor, before beginning work, must provide consumers with a written contract signed by both parties, which outlines certain information and disclosures. Starting in 2009, the Attorney General’s Office initially sent warning letters to contractors to educate them about the law. But as time passed, most were still not in compliance with the law. Further investigation found that the overwhelming majority did not follow the most basic provisions of the law, while many did not have contracts for consumers and were oblivious of the law. During the investigation, a survey of more than 100 area contractors found that 30 percent failed to provide a written contract and 50 percent failed to provide the most basic provisions required by law. The law requires that the contract must provide proposed starting and completion dates, describe the work, include materials to be provided, and give notice that consumers have an unconditional three-day right to cancel the contract without penalty. The law further requires that advance deposits taken by contractors must be placed in an account at a bank separate from the contractors’ other funds. “Homeowners need to know their rights and home improvement contractors need to obey the law,” Schneiderman said. “My office will fight to protect consumers’ hard

earned dollars and ensure that bad contractors are held accountable.” Nearly 50 contractors entered into settlement agreements with Schneiderman’s office. They agreed to do home improvement work only under written contracts that comply with the law and to put all advance deposits into a customer account at a local banking institution. Each of the contractors paid penalties and costs ranging up to $1,500. Schneiderman added that even when there is a contract, many times it does not include an address for the business or full name of the contractor. “One very simple tip that consumers can follow when hiring a contractor is to write down the license plate number of the contractor. That will give authorities a better way of tracking the individual down should something go wrong.” Consumers should also be specific about the work they want done, know permit requirements, shop around, get references and check them, obtain proof of insurance, review licenses, never pay full price up front, put work to be done in writing and know where payments are going. Contractors on the list: Chimney Sweep Hearthside Shop, Adirondack Custom Granite, C.

Back from the ponds The blackflies are back, and so are the tourists, just as the fishing season has finally hit full stride. Whether fishing on the river or stream, or on a lake or a pond, all anglers should be aware of the necessary common courtesies inherent to the pursuit. Despite our focus on angling, we must recognize that we all share a common natural resource with a variety of other users. Whether visiting the waters to fish, swim, paddle, bird watch or to simply enjoy the show, safety should always be the ultimate object of any outing. The fun and the fish are simply byproducts. In this regard, a lot of anglers and other river travelers are likely to be in for a surprise this season, when they first return to their old, familiar fishing hole. In many cases, the deep, dark pools and productive riffles that many have enjoyed on local rivers, will have changed dramatically. The familiar ‘honey hole’ may have silted in, and the shallow runs could be mucky, or thick with debris. In many cases, the riverbanks may have collapsed, log jams have formed and even the course of a river may have shifted. As the weather continues to heat up and the waters begin to warm, swimmers in particular should exercise caution, especially before diving or jumping into the rivers and streams. Scout the pools with a mask and snorkel, and be sure to look before you leap. The old familiar swimming hole may no longer be as deep. Rivers and streams are a very dynamic medium. They operate on an unabated continuum, which is ever changing, ever flowing. Experienced anglers and veteran paddlers understand this process, but very few of these veteran ‘river mongers’ have ever experienced the type of high water incidents that occurred during last year ’s high water events. The floods, which were considered to be both 100 year and 500 year events, served to reshape not only the river corridors, but in some cases, entire communities. The repercussions of these back to back natural disasters are still being felt. Such is the yin and yang of flowing waters. They soothe us, entertains us, and provides us with unlimited entertainment and intangible health benefits.

And yet behind their obvious beauty, embracing depths and caressing currents, there lurks a savage heart and a relentless power. Try though we may to arrest the flow, or harness it for our use, the flowing waters will continue to prove they have a mind of their own. While some may believe we own the waters, it was quite obvious, that man is not in charge last summer. Nature rules, as it always has and always will. We are simply visitors that are graced with a splendid opportunity to enjoy the waters while we can. ...and off to the brook Over the past month, I have focused the majority of my angling adventures on a search for brook trout in the ponds. Increasingly, it appears that more and more anglers have had a similar attraction to the ponds, likely for the same reason. As a result, it has become increasingly difficult to find a lonesome pond, that is truly lonesome anymore. When I encountered nearly a dozen vehicles at the canoe launch of a popular local pond recently, it proved just too much traffic for my taste. Although I truly enjoy catching big brook trout on remote waters, I prefer to do it alone, or at least with very little company and no audience. As a result of the apparent overpopulated human population, I decided to retreat tfrom the ponds to the less traveled recesses of a much smaller fishery, on a nearby trout stream. Although the stream’s channel has been severely reduced by ever encroaching alder beds, it’s flow has sprouted a productive trout fishery in recent years, and the sinous channel has been altered by a long series of multitiered pools. These new pools are a naturally occurring phenomena. They are the result of a beaver ’s never-ending quest for fresh food and new dams. Tireless workers, the beavers have ravaged the alders in order to construct new dams, and in the process, they have created ideal habitat for brook trout. Fortunately, they’ve also cleared lanes that are just wide enough to pass a canoe, and barely long enough to permit a cast. After launching my canoe, I quickly managed to make my way downstream to the location of a series of recently constructed beaver dams. The main dam was formed in three tiers, and the waters cascading over them provided natural oxygenation. The cold water was rich in oxygen, and insect life. Alder spiders dangled from the tree branches, and mayfly shucks littered the banks. The pool at the base of the dam was barely four feet deep, and it was hardly three times as wide. It was about 20 feet long, and full of fish with nowhere else to go. In an hour ’s time, I had caught and released dozens of small brookies. Some were barely the length of a finger, and not one of them topped a foot. But there is something to be said for the old adage, “If you want more, desire less.” Maybe it can be found in the special charm of spending a desolate day casting a small fly to small brook trout on a

small, quiet stream. There were no trophy trout to be had, no long carries, and nobody to share in the excitement. But there were speckled jewels that proved to be eager for the fly, and I spent the afternoon catching them by skittering a dry fly across the surface. Like finned missiles, they would explode out of the dam’s deep waters to attack my offerings on almost every cast. Best of all, there wasn’t another soul in sight, or sound the whole time. I had the magnificent natural playground all to myself, with the exception of one irritated osprey, and a few does that snorted from the banks. I was lost in the pool, and I lost count of both the trout and the time. The outing did not put any dinner on my table, and there were no bragging rights associated with landing a fingerlength fingerling. Yet, I returned home wearing a wide grin, an empty creel and with the unparalleled satisfaction of knowing I could do it all over again. And, I expect I will!

MICHAEL A. LESPERANCE SEPTEMBER 30, 1953 - JUNE 01, 2012 Michael A. Lesperance passed away at his job in Maryland. There will be a memorial service at the Stone Church in Elizabethtown, NY June 9th at 6:00pm.

KEENE - Patricia Kathleen Quinn of Mountain Meadows, Keene Valley, passed away peacefully at home on May 28, 2012. Born on October 8, 1924 in Cashmere, Washington, she was the daughter of Fred and Mary (Williams) Walker. She married Nicolas A. Quinn on September 15, 1945, and was a bookkeeper and clerk to the Ketchikan Public Utilities Department in Ketchikan, Alaska during World War II. Pat and Nick moved to the East Coast after their marriage. They resided in Pelham (Westchester County) until 1972, when they relocated their family to their summer home in Keene Valley. Pat was a devoted parishioner of St. Brendan's Roman Catholic Church in Keene, New York. In 1967, she became a Lady of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre. Pat was proud to be Adirondack 46er number 827, and was a long-standing member of the Adirondack Mountain Club. She climbed many of the High Peaks as a member of ATIS, and was one of the pioneers of the Keene Youth Commission program. She bequeathed a true love of the mountains, the rivers and the Adirondack wilderness to her children and grandchildren, many of whom are themselves current or aspiring 46ers. To celebrate her 80th birthday, she climbed to the summit of Indian Head at the Lower Ausable Lake with her family. She was the quintessential combination of a true lady and a modern
