Shortcuts for Windows 7 Public hearings for seniors


hile performing routine tasks on a PC we often stop and grab the mouse to do something. It doesn’t have to be that way because nearly all versions of Windows offer keyboard shortcuts that save users time by eliminating that repetitive reach for the mouse. Today, we look at a new shortcut available in Windows 7 where users can configure the taskbar with programs or folders that are used the most and use a shortcut to open or start them. Here’s how to do it in two easy steps. First, we will create the soon-to-beused shortcut on the Taskbar which involves pinning a program to the Taskbar. For this example, let’s use the Windows Calculator. Click the Start button and open All Programs. Then expand Accessories, hover the pointer over the Calculator, and drag it to an empty area on the Taskbar. When Windows displays the text Pin to Taskbar release the button on the mouse; the Calculator icon should now appear on the Taskbar. Move the Calculator icon to the left-most position (adjacent to the

Start button) by hovering over it and then dragging it toward the Start button. The Windows key is usually between the Ctrl and Alt keys on the left side of the space bar. To open the Calculator with the shortcut we just created, use Win+1 (the Windows key and the number 1 key on the top of the keyboard). Is By Ron Poland there a faster way to open the Calculator? Please know that any program or folder pinned to the taskbar can be opened or started with the shortcut of Win+1, Win+2, Win+3 and so forth. Simply configure the position of icons on the taskbar. In theory, place the most used program first, the next most-used program second, and so forth.

The key to proper watering Stress-induced weight gain


here is no doubt that the weather has been a bit on the warm and dry side recently. If you want to conserve time and water, you may be wondering which is better to water the lawn or your trees and shrubs? According to experts, during hot dry weather it is best to water your trees and shrubs. The cool-season lawn grasses commonly grown in the region naturally slow down as temperatures rise and soil moisture decreases. In hot dry years like this, turf grass specialist suggest just letting the lawn go completely dormant since lawns can survive for 4-6 weeks without significant rainfall. In addition, watering during hot weather can cause damage to your lawn. Watering, especially frequent light watering, during hot weather encourages lawn diseases and weeds. On the other hand, drought is very stressful to trees and shrubs. When it is really hot and dry many trees and shrubs will shed their leaves, which can kill the plants. This is especially true with newly planted trees and shrubs which are vulnerable because their root systems are not fully developed. The best way to water your landscaping is to water slow and deep. The goal is to

have the water soak into the ground and not run off. This can be accomplished with plastic drip irrigation bags that encircle the trunk of the tree. They can be quickly filled with a hose and then they slowly release the water (typically 20 gallons) over 8 to 12 hours. These bags should be filled one to two times a week. If you only have a few trees and shrubs to water, you can just use a hose turned on to a slow trickle —but you need to monitor them and move them before the water starts running off. Another low-tech solution is to drill small holes in the bottom of plastic buckets or trash cans, place them around the trees and shrubs, and fill them with water. If you have not been watering your trees and shrubs and they are showing signs of stress, it is not too late to start. This is true even if the plants have lost all of their leaves. As the long as the plant is alive and starts to get water the rest of the growing season it can survive and even thrive. Anne Lenox Barlow has had experience in the agricultural field as a horticulture educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Clinton County. She can be reached by e-mail at


tressful times may trigger emotional or stressful eating. For some, it is harder to stick to a healthy lifestyle when faced with higher levels of stress. The comfort foods we often reach for are usually high in calories, fat, and not the healthiest of choices. To combat weight gain during stressful times it is really important to get a handle on your stress. When you feel less stressed and more in control of your life it is easier to stick to healthier eating and exercise habits. The Mayo Clinic recommends the following stress management tips to combat stress induced weight gain. • Recognize the warning signs of stress, such as anxiety, irritability and muscle tension. • Before eating, ask yourself why you’re eating — are you truly hungry or do you feel stressed or anxious? • If you’re tempted to eat when you’re not hungry, find a distraction. • Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast. • Identify comfort foods and keep them out of your house or office. • Keep a record of your behavior and eat-

Politicians at Play in the Park I

t has been an interesting summer in the Adirondacks; where the weather has been mostly fair, the fishing’s been fine and the tourists and campers have been quite manageable. Until the downpours of this past weekend, rain had been almost non-existent for most of the month. However, the weekend certainly ushered in a distinctly autumnlike feel to the weather, with cool temperatures, high winds and a scattering of leaves. If this is any indication of what’s to come, fall can’t be far behind. While most local hotels have reported a downturn in guests this season, many of the region’s campgrounds have experienced a banner year. Across the country, parks and campgrounds have noted a significant increase in visitors. Sales of tents and camping related gear have also shown a noticeable increase. Along with all of the new campers in town, it has also been of interest to note a number of high profile, political figures that have enjoyed the Great Northwoods, this season. In the span of less than a month this summer, the region has hosted the current New York governor for a camping trip and whitewater rafting adventure, while the current at-

torney general and prospective state governor took his children on a fishing and camping trip in the park. To top it off, a former U.S. president spent his time in camp, hiking, paddling and mountain biking. Last week, while whitewater rafting with the Lake Placid Rafting Company, I ran into Pete Burns, owner of Beaver Brook Outfitters in Wevertown. Pete, and his wife Dana, were busy running the rapids after spending a night in camp with Gov. David Paterson and his family. The crew consisted of four rafts, in addition to a huge supply raft. Pete explained that the governor, a regular guest, had enjoyed a “nice weekend on the river full of camping, swimming, fishing and jumping off the rocks. They did a lot of fishing for smallmouth bass, fallfish and one guy even caught a really nice brown trout. There were a lot of comments about getting away from it all.” For those seeking a place to get away from it all, there are few places better than the Hudson River Gorge, which is almost inaccessible without a raft. Conveniently, cell phone reception is also non-existent. In early August, former President George Bush and his wife Laura, spent a long week-

end at Camp Topridge on the Upper St. Regis Lake, as guests of the Harlan Crow family. Mr. Bush kept busy hiking, boating and mountain biking in anonymity, until he was eventually spotted by a group of birders while biking along an old railbed near Onchiota. Back in July, Andrew Cuomo, the current attorney general and potentially the next governor, traveled throughout the Adirondacks, driving an RV. Although he was on a campaign swing, Mr. Cuomo combined the visit with a few days of camping and fishing with his daughters. I enjoyed an afternoon of fishing with the whole Cuomo crew on the Lower Saranac Lake and I was impressed with Mr. Cuomo’s knowledge of the local lake, which he had visited as a youth with his father. It was enlightening to learn that he really wanted the opportunity to share a similar experience with his own children. It was obvious they were an outdoor family, as the girls were not the least bit squeamish about handling fish or bait. And they were also highly competitive, as a raging battle continued throughout the afternoon for the largest fish of the day. Regardless of political affiliation, high profile visitors have always proven beneficial to the region’s tourism-based economy. Visits to the park by political figures are nothing new, a point that is well illustrated by the upcoming Teddy Roosevelt Weekend in Newcomb. A century after his visit, TR remains a tourist draw. The event is scheduled for Sept. 9-12. For further information please visit When President Calvin Coolidge took over White Pine Camp on Osgood Pond in Paul Smiths, the property became an instant tourist attraction, and remains so to this day. Whenever such personalities visit, their presence attracts attention, which serves to generate much needed exposure for the area. Their visits lend a certain caché to the allure

PERU — Running through the apple orchards isn’t something that typically helps the community. That is, unless, it’s during the Run for Jon. The annual 2.5-mile cross country race marks its 20th anniversary this year, celebrating nearly as long of helping North Country families in need through the Jonathan Evans Memorial Fund. The Run for Jon originally started as a fundraiser for Jon’s family, organized by family friends Scott Woodward and Mark Elmore, to help defray medical expenses associated with Jon’s treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue cancer that claimed his life at the age of 13 in 1992. The following year, the focus on fundraising for the event shifted to help provide financial assistance to families with seriouslyill loved ones. Shirley Evans, Jonathan’s mother, said she never imagined being part of an event that would raise more than $50,000 to help others — but she has and she continues to be proud it’s done in her son’s memory. “It’s impressive,” said Evans. “We’re so excited we’ve managed to carry it on this long. It makes us feel good to know when we hear a North Country family needs help, we’re able to do that. It’s thanks to the generosity of all the people who are able to contribute and help put on [the Run for Jon] every year.” The fact the Run for Jon has spanned two decades is also amazing to Scott Woodward, one of the event’s founders. Woodward, who was Jon’s cross-country track coach at Peru Central School, said he continues to be impressed how the Run for Jon has grown from an event that drew 150 people to one that brings upwards of 400 people year after year. “It’s just gratifying that it’s become somewhat of an institution and a wonderful event for the North Country,” said Woodward. “The North Country is so supportive of events like this and [the Run for Jon] reaching 20 years is an example of that.” “People look forward to it not only because it is a cause they want to support but also because it has become a really good community, family event,” added Evans. “It’s almost like going there is kind of celebrating what you have right now — your family, your friends, and enjoying the event together.” And, just as the Run for Jon has brought people together for that reason, it’s also earned itself interest from those wanting to bring home the best time to complete the event. “It’s a highly competitive cross country race,” said Woodward. “We have all levels of • 518-745-8793

runners and participants. We’ve had world class runners to walkers. It’s a great athletic and fitness event.” The Run for Jon has traditionally begun with the cross country race, immediately followed by a noncompetitive 1.25-mile walk. However, this year, things are switched up a bit, said Woodward. “We’re going to start things off this year with the walk at 5 p.m. and the run will start at 5:45,” said Woodward, adding a children’s fun run will take place between both events at 5:30 p.m. This year, a balloon release will be held to mark the Run for Jon’s 20th anniversary. Tshirts will be available featuring the names of winners of the past Run for Jon events. “We’re hoping that we’ll have some of them return,” said Evans. The Run for Jon will take place at Forrence Orchards on Mannix Road this Saturday, Aug. 28. Registration will be held from 3:304:45 p.m. The event is sanctioned by the Adirondack Association of the U.S.A. Track and Field Association. “If you haven’t been, you won’t regret it. It’s a great event in a beautiful setting,” said Woodward. Those who cannot attend the Run for Jon may send donations in care of The Jonathan Evans Memorial Fund to 7 Oakdale Drive, Peru N.Y. 12972. For more information, contact Evans at 643-2414 or Woodward at 834-7583. Details about the event are also available on-line at and on Facebook by searching the keywords Run for Jon.

Bringing music to the community By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — Throughout the years, pianist Adrian Carr has come to notice the benefits of music in a person’s life. Now, he’s taking what he knows about music and extending it to the community. On Wednesday, Sept. 1, Carr will host an open house at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, 23 Brinkerhoff St., from 3:30-6 p.m. The plan is for people to come in and see what he will begin offering at the center. “I’m doing piano lessons, but also ‘Everything Music,’ which is kind of like a music exposure and appreciation class for young people, as well as the North Country Music Club, which is for adults in the evening,” Carr explained.

Carr said his intention for the two classes is to “bring music into the community” by using a variety of techniques. “It’s been generally shown in several studies that classical music really helps the brain develop, and for kids this is really wonderful,” Carr explained. “I’ve noticed there is a real connection between kids after they’re starting to learn piano and get involved in music.” According to Carr’s Web site,, there are 12 benefits of music education. From brain development in language and reasoning, to enhancing teamwork skills and discipline, Carr sees music as a “wonderful experience” for people. To bring the experience to the community, Carr contacted NCCCA last spring and asked what they were doing about music at the center. “They said, ‘Well, we don’t have any plans

yet,’” recalled Carr. Explaining what he hoped to do, the center set up a room for him with a piano, as they wanted to encourage the music in the center as well. “As funding is getting more and more cut from public schools and the arts are just suffering, I find that there is a space opening up here,” Carr said. “This is where the North Country Cultural Center can really fill this space ... Not just in music, but in the art course they’re doing here and everything.” Every Wednesday, beginning Sept. 8, NCCCA will be a day of music, according to Carr. The Everything Music class, which will be held in the afternoons for children ages 5 and older, will help kids understand both classical and popular music. “What I want to do is make kids music literate,” Carr said. “So, that they’re not experts, but at least they know about music. “We’ll be designing the program kind of as we go,” he added. “Questions that they might have

about music. Music that they might want to play. Topics that they might have questions about. It’s very much going to be an interactive kind of thing.” Carr is hoping to also bring in art instructors, so children can see the connection between music and art. For adults, the North Country Music Club will be held Wednesday evenings, with the focus on getting people to appreciate music. “It want it to be interactive,” Carr said. “Because I want it to be about them. Anything that I can do to help them appreciate music, help them understand something that they always wanted to know about, but just never asked, or were afraid to ask, or didn’t know who to ask.” For more information about the open house, email Carr at or call NCCCA at 563-1604.

North Countryman - 9

Logan Franks heading to World Ironman competition in Hawaii By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Logan Franks has his eyes on the prize. The 22-year-old Plattsburgh resident and Keeseville native is coming down from his high of placing 11th in the Ford Ironman Competition in Lake Placid July 24. Logan’s placement, which also included scoring the best completion time in his age bracket, has landed him a spot to compete in the World Ironman Championships in Kona, Hawaii. The win was one that Logan had been hoping for, but something he didn’t know he could achieve considering he has only been competing in triathlons for about a year. “I was hoping to be in the top 10 overall, win my age group and break the 10-year course record for my age group,” said Logan, who’s a student at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. “I pulled away with all of them except placing in the top 10. And, I only missed that by two minutes.” Logan, who is a member of U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, credits his time in the service for preparing him for what can often be grueling training. “It definitely gave me the discipline to be able to stick with it, that’s for sure,” he said. Logan returned from a tour duty Iraq in April 2009, and prior to his return, he had one thing in mind — and it wasn’t competing in triathlons. “I was thinking about looking into joining the Navy Seals, so I started swimming to practice,”

said Logan. “I was swimming every day toward the end of my deployment ... then I was talking to a friend about Ironman. I went on-line and researched it, I thought it looked extremely challenging.” That challenge was where Logan decided to set his sights. “When I got home, I dropped like $6,000 within two days from the money I made overseas. I bought a new bike and started training literally two days after I got home,” said Logan. Enlisting the help of Scott Bombard as his coach, Logan subjected himself to training at last six to eight hours a day, many of which consisted of 100mile bike rides. Many times when Logan felt he was “going to die,” he reached down and pushed himself harder. “Training is definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and that’s coming from someone in the Marine Reserves,” laughed Logan. Leading up to the Lake Placid Ironman, Logan participated in shorter triathlons in Burlington, Vt., and Bristol, N.H., pushing himself to the limit each time. The Bristol race was just a week after the Burlington event, leaving Logan to finish the event even with blisters on his feet. “I’ve done a lot better than I thought I would do,” admitted Logan. “I was just doing it at first to see if I could do it. As I started training more and more, it became not so much if I could finish, but how fast I could do it.” Logan’s determination is something which makes his father, Dean Franks of Keeseville, beam with pride. “I broke down in tears when he crossed the fin-

ish line,” said Dean. “He said to me, ‘Dad, I’m going to Kona.’ I’m so proud.” Dean is now in the process of organizing fundraiser to help send Logan to Kona in October. Most recently, the Plattsburgh Moose Lodge hosted a benefit featuring auctions of items donated by area businesses. Businesses like Mountain Riders, Loreman’s, TwinState and Kinney Drugs, among others helped out with the event. Donna’s Hair Salon and Arnold’s Grocery in Logan’s hometown are among others that have showed they’re behind Logan 100 percent, he said. “I couldn’t have done this without the community or my family backing me,” said Logan, who also credited Operation Injured Soldier as a major supporter. “It’s awesome to have not only the best family in the world but also the best community to grow up in and have these people having your back.” As for Logan’s thoughts on Kona? He’s keeping it simple.

“I hope it’s going to be a good race, but anything can happen,” he said. “Either way, it’s been a fun ride.” Those interested in helping support Logan in his participation in the World Ironman Championships may send donation in care of him to 1821 Main St., Keeseville N.Y. 12944.

Audrey Napper battling rare form of cancer By Jeremiah S. Papineau CADYVILLE — The date March 4, 2010, is one Tammi S. Reil will never forget. It’s the day her niece, 5-year-old Audrey Napper, was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. Audrey, the daughter of Reil’s brother, Neil and his wife, Missy, had been under the weather for several weeks, said Reil, and hadn’t been responding to normal remedies. “She didn’t want to eat and she was throwing up a lot,” explained Reil. Audrey’s parents had her examined and when they and Reil heard the word rhabdomyosarcoma, they had no idea what it meant, said Reil. “We had to go onto the Internet and learn about it,” said Reil. “And, I’ll tell you, the news we got on the Internet was not promising.” What Audrey’s family learned, said Reil, was only 30 percent of children that have rhabdomyosarcoma have signs of progress for five years or more. Beyond that, nothing is certain, she said.

Though the information gave a potentially bleak forecast for anyone with rhabdomyosarcoma, Reil said there have been many signs for hope in Audrey’s particular case. Having now undergone a steady regimen of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, the initial tumors that have invaded Audrey’s body have responded well. Even sores Audrey developed in her mouth and throat from the radiation treatments have dissipated, allowing her to be removed from a feeding tube and eat solid foods again. “It’s cute because every time she tries to eat something again she’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s just like I remembered it,’” said Reil. Though Audrey is seeing signs of progress, Reil said she and the Nappers recognize Audrey has “a long road ahead.” “She’ll still have chemo treatments every week until the end of April. She’s on a treatment plan that takes 54 weeks,” Reil explained. “But, at least now we know that it’s working.” The treatments have prevented Audrey from having a life like most children her age, Reil said, including having to be isolated from others for periods of time to ensure her health. Even Reil’s own daughters, who are much like sisters to Audrey, she said, have had to spend several weeks away from her at a time while she recovers. That’s been a tough adjustment for all of them, including Audrey, but it’s one that’s been taken in stride.

Five-year-old Audrey Napper, seen here, has rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. Friends of her family will hold a benefit for her this Sunday, Aug. 29, at the Assumption of Mary School in Redford.

“It’s really stripped [Audrey] of being a little kid for quite awhile,” said Reil. “But, she doesn’t complain about anything. She does all these treatments, goes back to the hospital. She knows it’s what she has to do and she just does it.” That’s the same attitude Audrey’s family — and even those who have simply heard of her condition — have taken toward raising money for her ongoing medical expenses. Earlier this year, Francine Mitchell, a friend of Reil, organized a bake sale to help. Weeks later, Reil’s cousin helped host a car wash with members of his church. That support is something that means the world to Audrey’s family, said Reil. “There are so many good people out there that just want to do something to help. It’s kind of overwhelming to see the reaction to my family and Audrey’s need and how loved we are,” she said. “It’s really made us very grateful and appreciative of where we live.” This Sunday, Aug. 29, a benefit is planned for Audrey at the Assumption of Mary School on Clinton Street in Redford. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and feature a spaghetti dinner, bake sale, children’s carnival and Chinese auction. Entertainment will be provided by Nite Train, Ross Mafia, Country Trio plus One, Movin’ On, Denim, and Neil and Summer Gillespie. “We’re trying to make it very much a familyoriented event,” said Mitchell, who is helping to organize the benefit that will also be alcohol and

Renal center in the running to bring award-winning chef to town By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — CVPH Medical Center’s H. K. Freedman Renal Center needs votes from the community to prove they have exceptional performance. Of all the kidney dialysis units across the nation, the renal center is one of only 19 centers to be in the running to have chef Oliver Hale cook for patients receiving dialysis. More commonly known as “Chef O,” the award-winning television host from Grand Rapids, Mich., is a dialysis patient himself, and has spent many years working to enhance life through cooking health foods in order to reduce health risks. Chef O teamed up with Baxter Healthcare, a company which specializes in making dialyzers, to see which dialysis units in the nation had exceptional performance. Registered dietician Tara Sherman knew KDU was up for the challenge. “I got this poster and it just said, ‘Do you have exceptional performance in your unit?’ And, I thought, ‘Well of course we do!’” laughed Sherman. Since becoming the dietician for KDU two years ago, Sherman said she has made it her goal to create fun and exciting ways for patients to understand the importance of a proper diet.

“My little pet project here, I have this education cart that I wheel down the unit, and it’s a fun way to educate the patients,” explained Sherman. “So, I kind of featured that cart and just talked about how, as a unit, it changed things.” A PowerPoint project was created to showcase what exceptional performance meant to the renal center and how it can be seen throughout the unit. “Education needs to change every day,” states the PowerPoint. Sherman uses the education cart to meet that goal, using hands-on education tools, instead of lecturing. “The way they were being educated was boring,” Sherman said. “It not only changed the way we educate, but it helps morale.” If the center were to win the challenge, receiving the most votes by the end of August, Chef O would come to the unit for two days, providing cooking demonstrations with a dialysis-friendly menu. “There’s a whole slew of things [dialysis patients] can’t eat,” explained Sherman. “It’s very tricky for them to come up with fun, flavorful recipes. Currently, the center is not in the top five contestants, but Sherman is still hoping people will vote and show their support. To do so, visit and search for the H. K. Freedman Renal Center. Voting will be held through the end of Aug. 31.

Health & Fitness 2 0 1 0 Five easy ways to create an active and healthier lifestyle

Outside of the economy, fitness and healthy eating are among the most critical issues facing Americans today. Only 31 percent of Americans are getting adequate exercise and 68 percent of men and 53 percent of women are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Interview survey released in March. The good news is that the tried-and-true approach of regular exercise and smart nutrition will go a long way toward managing weight loss and an overall healthy lifestyle. In fact, the benefits of being more active can be seen within a short time after starting a new routine and include more energy, less stress, lower blood pressure, improved digestive health and a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk.

When you add in smart nutritional choices to your exercise routine, the positives pile

up further. “As a triathlete and a sports dietitian, I can tell you that plenty of healthy choices are convenient and taste delicious,” says registered dietician Dr. KatherineBeals.

So, whether you aspire to overhaul your diet and exercise program or are just thinking about taking a few first steps to a healthier life, smart choices can start with a few simple steps. Abbs and Dr. Beals offer these tips for getting started on achieving overall better health. 1. Get and stay active: Adults should get 2.5 hours of aerobic physical activity per week and perform strengthening activities two days a week, according to the U.S. Health and Human Services department. Fortunately, it is easier than you might think to incorporate exercise into your routine. For example, take the stairs instead of the elevator and find the parking spot that is farthest away to get extra steps

in between your car and your destination. Play tag with your kids, or consider signing up for a community fun run 5K. Not only do these runs usually provide an opportunity to race for a good cause, you can use it as training motivation. 2. Use interval training: Experts say varying your cardio work with a combination of easy/hard intervals will result in faster fitness gains. It also mixes up your workouts and staves off boredom. Next time you go for a run, instead of keeping the same pace, try mixing in a few sprints. Start with 30 seconds on hard and 10 seconds on easy. 3. Go for convenience: Abbs says dried fruits like Sunsweet Ones, individually wrapped prunes, are a convenient and nutritious snack whether you’re training for a marathon or just a busy person on the go. “These delicious snacks are portable, don’t spoil and deliver calories that count.” Plus,

prunes are known to support digestive health. 4. Fill up with fiber: High-fiber foods are critical to digestive health and any weight loss program because they fill you up and help keep the hunger pangs at bay. The typical American eats only about 11 grams of fiber a day, according to the American Dietetic Association, and health experts recommend a minimum of 20 to 30 grams of fiber a day for most people. Fruits (dried and fresh) and vegetables are great fiber sources including apples, pears, prunes, peas, broccoli and sweet corn. 5. After an intense workout: Carbohydraterich foods that are energy dense, easy to digest and familiar and appetizing - like bagels, granola bars, crackers, dried plums and fruit juices - are good choices for postworkout fare to replenish any lost nutrients. Exercise also increases the loss of water from the body, primarily through sweat, so the harder and longer the workout, the more lost fluid that needs replacing. “Drinking fluids like water, sports drinks, and fruit juices or eating water-containing foods can replace these lost fluids and, in the case of fruits, fruit juices and vegetables, replace much-needed potassium,” Dr. Beals says.

Working to eradicate ALS PORT KENT — While many people think of cancer as the current epidemic, Darlene Long believes it’s actually motor neuron diseases. Darlene’s husband, Roger, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease in May 2009. Since his diagnosis he is now in a wheelchair, with severe weakness in his arms and hands. Darlene has been doing a lot of research about ALS, coming across some interesting findings. While typically only one person for every 100,000 get ALS, Darlene has noticed the numbers are much higher in Clinton County, and parts of Essex County. “There’s a lady that we met who is the eastern coast representative for the ALS [Association],” Darlene said. “She definitely said they know there’s a pocket here, they just don’t know why.” However, Darlene has learned Dartmouth University will be doing a study to check out the water basin. “They think that there may be a bacteria

that’s found along our lake,” she said. “That same bacteria is found in Guam, where five percent of the world’s cases are.” As Darlene has learned more information about ALS, she has also searched for specific cases in the area, coming across 25 people who have died from it since the 1980s. “But, the bulk of the names, the majority of them, probably three-quarters, are from 2001, on,” she said. “So, this last decade has seen the most of them.” Darlene also came across some interesting information on medical shows, which state motor neuron diseases will actually become the epidemic of the 21st century. “Cancer was considered the epidemic of the last century, the 1900s,” she explained. “We’ve seen enough medical shows … they figure they’re going to have it beat by 2016. They are so close with being able to eliminate it.” The new epidemic of motor neuron diseases include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer ’s, Frontal Lobe Dementia, and ALS. The biggest issue in finding a cure for those diseases is there are so many unknowns, including how and why it starts. However, the ALS Therapy Development Institute is working on getting the answers

and finding a cure. This Saturday, Aug. 28, Darlene has planned a golf tournament to help raise money for the nonprofit research organization. “It takes $3 billion to get a new drug to market,” she explained. “From the time that you go down the cellular level with the disease and you go through clinical trials, come up with the medication, and get it to market.” Although Darlene said the tournament could have been used to benefit only Roger, she instead took in the bigger picture. “There’s a lot of events to raise money for particular people,” she said. “But, the bigger picture is we need money to fight the disease.” The tournament has already received enough teams, however, people can still come and support the fundraising efforts. From 12 to 2 p.m., music will be provided for entertainment at the Harmony Golf Club in Port Kent. There will also be a plaque at the tournament with the names of the 25 people in the area who have died from ALS. There is enough space for 40 names, and it is Darlene’s goal to have some answers and a treatment before reaching 40 people. “The reality is it could happen to anyone.

Peru native returns to his unit, less than a year after helicopter crash By Trish Muntean Special to Denton Publications FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska — Less than a year after a helicopter crash in Iraq that left one soldier dead and several others, including himself, critically injured, Sgt. Justin LaFountain has returned to his unit. “It’s awesome to be back at work,” said the Peru native, who serves with A Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade. The incident happened Sept. 19, 2009, in Balad, Iraq, when the Black Hawk helicopter he was riding in was returning to base in bad weather. The crash, LaFountain recalled, happened during the landing. They were flying about 100 to 150 feet above the ground at a “pretty good clip,” he said. LaFountain said he was in the back, watching what he thought was heat lightning, and remembered thinking “Oh, we got this, we are gonna make that.” When they got closer he said he “started to feel uncomfortable. A couple of seconds later...” The details get a little fuzzy after that. LaFountain remembers the left side of the aircraft came to the ground first. He remembers seeing some sparks and hearing a metal scraping noise. “It was all really pretty quick. We kind of bounced and came back up,” LaFountain said. “I thought ‘go-around’... Go-arounds are free as we say.” “Then the right side of the aircraft hit,” LaFountain said. “I remember the starting of the rolling action, the dynamic, and one second later I lost consciousness. I believe it is because my head contacted the ceiling of the aircraft. I don’t know.” “My next memories were of waking up and seeing a dust cloud around me. At that point it really wasn’t coming to me. I was having the impression that I was having a bad dream,” he continued. When he came to again, he remembered being triaged by a female medic on the accident site. He had no idea of the extent of his injuries and told her to go over and help the others who were on the aircraft. He told her they needed her and all he needed was some Icy-Hot for his back. He would come to find out that he needed more than Icy-Hot. LaFountain was treated at Balad Hospital that night and medically evacuated to the U.S. Army Hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, the next day. He recalled joking with the captain who was putting him on the aircraft that “only in the Army would I be in a Black Hawk crash last night and today you would put me on another aircraft.” LaFountain was at Landstuhl for only a day before being put on another aircraft and sent to Walter Reed Army Medical Center [in Washington, D.C.], where he was met by his father and his grandmother. His wife, Raechel, arrived a few days later. LaFountain spent the next several weeks at Walter Reed undergoing surgery and physical therapy. He was treated for a burst fracture in the L-5 vertebrae, a skull fracture, a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury and a corneal abrasion on his left eye.

“It wasn’t until I got into physical therapy that I really started nailing down details. I had my surgery on a Thursday afternoon; on Friday morning my physical therapist and occupational therapist came in, they were amazed,” said LaFountain, referring to when he could stand up using a walker and stand on one leg and then the next. LaFountain remembers being disappointed they wouldn’t let him try to walk but that just that little bit of movement “took a lot out of me,” he said. He still didn’t understand their excitement when the next day he walked to the door and back. “What’s the big deal, I am supposed to be able to walk,” he said, recalling a conversation with his physical therapist, after becoming an outpatient. “I don’t understand what you guys are so excited about, I’m up, I’m walking. This is what people do, this is what soldiers do.” It was then he finally understood the extent of his injuries. “She told me ‘No, I don’t think you understand. On paper you look a lot worse than you do in person. They didn’t expect you to walk again. Your spinal canal is 60 percent com-

Peru High School From page 1 of a “School of Distinction,” for making “significant strides in preparing their students for college.” “This is a wonderful thing,” Mazzella said of the recognition. “The credit really goes to the team of teachers who participated and worked with our students. It shows their commitment to helping kids.” Physical education teacher Natalie Schaefer, who serves as the school’s CFES liaison, was also pleased with the School of Distinction award, calling it “quite an honor because a limited amount of schools receive it.” The school’s interaction with students for the past four years — which has involved promoting financial aid awareness, educating students on the college application process and involving them in peer mentoring — has given great insight to the world of higher education, said Schaefer. “The response from the students has been fantastic,” she said. “I can’t tell you how many

promised and with the loss of feeling that you have in your legs, it wasn’t looking good,’” he recalled. LaFountain was released from the Walter Reed Warrior Transition Battalion in early December and returned to Alaska where he was attached to B Company Warrior Transition Battalion. He continued to heal, qualified and competed in the inaugural Warrior Games in May at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., along with Sgt. Allen Marley, also from Fort Wainwright’s WTB, who won a silver medal in the air pistol contest. “It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Being able to go to the training center and live and train there for a week. It is something most anyone in the world would want to be able to experience and I got to do that,” LaFountain said. “Being able to participate in the first Warrior Games was extremely inspiring. One of the best parts of these games is showing soldiers that they still have the opportunity to do things that they loved to do before.” LaFountain, a platoon sergeant and crew chief, returned to work June 1. “Before I was a squad leader and before I got injured I was an assistant platoon sergeant. I’m doing my job,” LaFountain said. “I don’t get up so much on aircraft, fixing as I did before, because I have other responsibilities. I managed to receive a temporary up slip so that I can fly. We are waiting for word back from Fort Rucker...” about the permanent clearance.” “I’ve had two flights so far,” LaFountain said. “It was good.” He said it wasn’t scary getting back on a helicopter, but it was exciting. “It came back amazingly well, it was like second nature. The unit has always supported me. I kept in contact with them while I was in Walter Reed,” LaFountain said. “They would send me e-mails. It was a good morale booster. I would send pictures. They would print them and post them.” His goal was always to come back to his unit, but he had to sell the idea to his platoon sergeant, his first sergeant and commander who had their doubts because of his injuries. “To me, it never really entered my mind, hey I am not going to walk again or hey I am not going to fly again,” LaFountain said. “Once the accident happened, the morale of the company went down, but he stepped up,” said 1st Sgt. Gary Sanders, A/1-52nd, 16th CAB. “He sent us a picture of him standing up, on a walker, moving around. As soon as we posted that, morale of the troops went straight through the roof.” “He won’t take credit, he won’t say ‘I did something’, but he did,” Sanders said. “He said, ‘Look team; I’m still here in the fight. I am trying to get back in the fight.’ He inspired us.” Needless to say, things are looking up for LaFountain. “It’s good to be home,” he said.

students who have said they never wanted to go to college are now excited about going to college.” Students involved with CFES, which reached more than 50 last year at Peru High School, were also able to tour campuses of Clinton Community College and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. That kind of close-up look at institutions of higher learning was something Schaefer said was invaluable. The added benefit is students participating in the program have had higher grade point averages, more positive attitudes towards school and increased civic engagement. “It’s just been a wonderful program to have instilled within the school,” said Schaefer. “It’s great for our kids,” added Mazzella. “It helps give them the best opportunity to be successful in high school and in college.” Peru High School was joined in School of Distinction recognition locally by Keeseville Elementary School, Willsboro Central School, Crown Point Central School and Ticonderoga Middle School for meeting academic goals during the 2009-10 school year. Only 14 schools overall were recognized nationwide.

North Countryman - 23

Community volunteers sought to interact with international students By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Those wanting to learn about cultures from far away places don’t have to travel great distances thanks to a program at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Partners In Cross-Cultural Learning, sponsored by the university’s International Student Service Office, is a program that matches newly arriving international students with volunteers from the community. Program coordinator Michelle St. Onge, Peru, explained the program provides students with “an authentic experience of life in the United States,” while local residents are given the opportunity “to glimpse into different cultures through interaction with the students.” “It gives people here an opportunity to relate to people from different cultures,” said St. Onge, “and it allows students to become more integrated into American culture, which is slightly different off campus than it is on campus.” Through “casual, social exchange,” international students establish a “friendly and supportive link” to the community, said St. Onge. Each semester, students are matched with community residents and meet about once a month for informal activities such as family dinners, trips to the movies or casual outings. The PICL program doesn’t require the international students to be housed by PICL community volunteers as they live on campus, noted St. Onge. However, community volunteers — who go through a required application process —

are encouraged to welcome students into their homes to get an impression of day-to-day life in an American family. “It gives them a chance to see the inside of an American home and see how individuals in an American family relate to one another,” said St. Onge. “Even simple things like where you put your dishes or what your restrooms look like are things that are very different that we can take for granted.” The experience is one that educates students and community volunteers while having fun at the same time, said St. Onge. “It’s getting to experience your own culture through someone else’s eyes,” she said. “And, it’s a way to share your own experiences, your life and the things you enjoy doing with someone else.” “It’s all about fun,” she added. PICL also coordinates various social activities throughout the semester such as bowling outings and sledding parties. Currently, there are more than 50 volunteer and international student partnerships through the PICL program. “We’d like more community partners to participate because, right now, we only have enough to get the new incoming students paired up,” said St. Onge, who noted the program sometimes struggles with community interest. “Sometimes we get returning students who would like to have a new partner and we’d like to have enough partners to rematch them. We’re always looking for more volunteers.” This Saturday, Aug. 28, an informational meeting about the PICL program will be held in the auditorium of the Plattsburgh Public Library, 19 Oak St. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. Applications to become a PICL community volunteer

ASSISTANCE The state encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and nonprofit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877BANK-NYS (1-877226-5697) or visit the department’s website at WWW.BANKING.STA T E . N Y . U S . FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed

all such promised services. § 1303 NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF ( M O R T G A G E COMPANY) AND FILING THE ANSWER WITH THE COURT. DATED: August 4, 2010 Steven J. Baum, P.C., Attorney(s) For Plaintiff(s), 220 Northpointe Parkway Suite G, Amherst, NY 14228 The law firm of Steven J.
