Property maintenance issue discussed at council meeting By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

The condition of a property owned by Jesse Reed on State Route 3 in the hamlet of Redford was discussed at the most recent meeting of the Saranac Town Council. The property houses Reed’s business, Recycling Technologies, which deals with recycling scrap metal.

SARANAC — The town of Saranac could be on its way to court to pr osecute a local landowner. During his regular report to the Saranac Town Council Monday night, Town Attorney Frank G. Zappala gave the council an update on a property that has been under scrutiny in recent months for being a blight in the hamlet of Redford. The property, located on State Route 3, is owned by Jesse Reed and, as Zappala explained following the meeting, the issue of the property being an eyesore has been ongoing for several years. “[Reed] has had business

The matter of contention, said Zappala, has been the amount of “junk” on Reed’s property that has been dubbed an eyesore by those who have complained about the matter. “It’s been an ongoing, constantly changing problem that we have to addr ess periodically,” said Zappala. Back in 2009, the town filed a petition against Reed stating he was in violation of town

Town of Plattsburgh Democrats unveil candidates PLATTSBURGH — The T own of Plattsburgh Democratic Committee has announced its candidates for the November 2011 election. Running for r eelection as Plattsburgh T own Supervisor is Bernar d Bassett. Bassett has served as supervisor for the past six years and chair of the Clinton County Supervisor ’s Association. The incumbent said he feels it’s most important the town continue the progress b egun t o s ecure t he t own’s economic future.   “As Town of Plattsbur gh Supervisor the past six years, I have had the opportunity to listen to the needs of residents and business owners,” said Bassett. “This has been an exciting time.  More important, we have begun to see the r esults that har d work and collaboration can bring.   I encourage residents to drive about the town to witness the many projects that are taking place.   This is just the beginning. We must keep the progress going.” Other issues of importance, said Bassett, include maintaining an open government wher e r esidents ar e always welcome to attend meetings and discuss issues with town of ficials; maintaining a zer o town tax and operating town government in the most efficient and r esponsible way possible; encouraging r esponsible gr owth to create a strong tax base and quality jobs that are critical to providing residents of the town and their childr en with the financially secure community they deserve; and improving infrastructure and working to maintain the town’s position as a leader and innovator. “I would like the opportunity to continue to work for you as your Town of Plattsbur gh Supervisor and to continue to work to secur e our town’s economic future,” said Bassett. Running for town councilman ar e incumbents Martin Mannix Jr . and Thomas E. W ood Jr ., and political newcomer Mike Verville.

The Town of Plattsburgh Democratic Committee’s candidates for the November 2011 election include, from left, town highway superintendent candidate JamesW. Woods, town councilman candidate Mike Verville, town clerk candidate Rickey Collins, town councilman candidate Martin Mannix Jr., town supervisor candidate Bernard Bassett, town councilman candidate Thomas E. Wood Jr., and town justice candidate James D. Joyce. Woods, Collins, Mannix, Bassett, and Wood are incumbents. Mannix has served as a town councilman for 22 years, serving 16 years as deputy supervisor. “I am committed to keeping our general town tax rate at zer o,” said Mannix. “Budgeting is, in my opinion, a 12-month process. We have an attitude among our town department heads wherein they propose common sense budgets and they know their town boar d will work har d to give them the people and equipment they need to do their jobs. Everyone is involved in the pr ocess. That cooperative spirit doesn’t happen by accident.” Mannix said one of his major objectives over the next four years will be to build a stronger workforce within the town. “We have done a good job of attract-

ing retail enterprises and we will continue that; but we need to focus more on attracting quality manufacturing and service sector employers. That will produce quality jobs,” said Mannix. Wood has been a candidate for office five times and won a race for a four-year term as a town councilperson in 2003 and was er -elected in 2007. Wood said the town faces many opportunities and challenges which “will test our ability to cooperate and innovate as a community.” “I will continually strive to make good use of our opportunities for r esponsible gr owth, pr omote higher wage jobs, upgrade our infrastr ucture, seek grants and shar ed services to keep costs down and be open and responsive to the needs and desires of

the residents of our town,” said W ood. “We have made significant pr ogress over the last four years in town policies, f inances, l and u se, j ob c reation and a long range vision for our future.” Verville, pr esident of V erville Enterprises — a r eal pr operty, r ental property and development corporation — said he understands the issues facing the r egion and will make “sound business decisions” if elected. “The issues in the town are the same as county, state and the nation face, delivering services without spiraling taxes or the mountain of lar ge deficits,” said Verville. “The key to controlling taxes is r esponsible management, promotion of the town and to stimulate economic gr owth. The town is a multi-million dollar a year

business, the taxpayers ar e the stock holders, the dividends ar e quality services and stable taxes.” Town Highway Superintendent candidate James W. Woods is running for reelection, stating he wants “to complete projects that had to be postponed because of unforeseen weather disasters seen over the past year. “One challenge of the department will be maintaining and updating equipment all the while staying within the budget,” said W oods. “I look forward to working for all the r esidents of the town and maintain the integrity of the department. Town Clerk Rickey Collins is seeking r eelection, carrying with him three and a half years experience in the position. “I earn a living based on how I deliver customer service in a pro fessional and friendly manner,” said Collins. “My or ganizational and communication skills ar e excellent and my energy is boundless ... I will continue to use my skills and knowledge to pr ovide the r esidents with the kind of service they need and deserve,” said Collins. James D. Joyce is thr owing his hat in the ring for town justice. Joyce said he is “a strong believer in doing your civic duty.” “I have been searching for a way to use my talents and assets to serve the community. After extensive r esearch, I believe that this position is a perfect position for me because of my experience, education and personality,” said Joyce. “I have all the qualities that are required to be an excellent justice. I can be fair , firm, and consistant in making decisions. I am dedicated and dependable. I am honest and committed. I have the experience making difficult decisions.” Joyce said he brings to the office “a fresh appr oach and r enewed dedication.” “As the town justice, I will work as hard as possible for you the taxpayer and the town of Plattsburgh.”

CHAMPLAIN/ROUSES POINT • North Countryman - 3

Commemoration honors life, death of Father Chagnon St. Mary’s pastor credited for commitment Champlain

By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

CHAMPLAIN — The life of one of the r egion’s arguably most influential men of his time has not been forgotten. The congr egation of St. Mary’s Chur ch r ecently honored the 100th anniversary of the death of the Rev. Francis X. Chagnon, a former pastor of the chur ch who served at its helm for nearly 35 years. The Rev. James A. Delbel, who serves as the curr ent pastor of the chur ch, said Chagnon’s str ong vision shaped what the village of Champlain, and particularly the church, is today. “He was a r emarkable man in many ways,” said Delbel. Chagnon — a native of Vercheres, a suburb of Montreal just an hour north of Champlain — was appointed pastor of St. Mary’s Jan. 6, 1877, said Delbel. The parish which Chagnon came

to was a financially poor one, meeting in a modest and antiquated wooden church. However , the congregation was rich in spirit and determination, he said, as Chagnon soon led the way in raising money for the constr uction of a new church which still stands in the village today. “He could have built any church, but he wanted to build a lar ge and beautiful church,” said Delbel. Though it was a str uggle to raise the money for the building’s constr uction, Delbel said the pr oject was completed before the turn of the century. The new church not only gave the congregation a formidable place of worship, but it also earned Chagnon gr eat admiration and respect, said Delbel. “It was a tough time to be an immigrant in this country. Diversity had not yet taken hold,” explained Delbel. “The Fr ench would come down from Quebec to work in the factories her e after the Civil W ar and the were not very well-treated; they wer e looked down upon as foreigners.” The church was built with Chagnon’s strong emphasis on sustaining and pr omot-

ing the Franco-American culture of the area, said Delbel. “It r eminded them they had a wonderful heritage,” Delbel said of the chur ch’s parishioners, adding those who attend the chur ch to this day shar e that same French-Canadian lineage. Though the chur ch was viewed as Chagnon’s crowning achievement, he didn’t stop ther e, said Delbel. In 1906, thr ough Chagnon’s ef forts, a Catholic school was opened, bringing the Daughters of the Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus — a gr oup of nuns came to America fr om France — to teach the students. “[Chagnon] insisted on offering a Catholic education,” said Delbel, “which was difficult because, again, there wasn’t much money.” What became Chagnon’s most notable accomplishment, however, was the construction of the monument dedicated to French explorer Samuel de Champlain, the namesake for the village, town and lake which divides the states of New York and Vermont. “The town fathers here in Champlain wanted to put

Eventually, enough money was raised to er ect the statue in time for a dedication July 4, 1907, and make it the first statue in the nation to honor Samuel de Champlain. “It was the last big thing he did and, in a way , his crowning achievement as pastor her e,” said Delbel, who noted Chagnon died four years later on Oct. 10, 1911. Chagnon was laid to r est in a tomb on the chur ch grounds behind the statue of Samuel de Champlain, across the str eet fr om the former Catholic school he helped establish. Chagnon’s final r esting place put him among the thr ee ef forts he was most known for , noted Delbel. “He certainly was worth celebrating. He r eally put a stamp on this parish that’s still influential today,” said Delbel, adding the local Knights of Columbus council also bears Chagnon’s names as the Francis X. Chagnon Council 3525. “He was one of the most important people in the North Country,” said Delbel, “and we r emember him.”

The Rev. Francis X. Chagnon, a former pastor of St. Mary’s Church, was recently honored by the chur ch’s c ongregation, which marked the 100th anniversary of Chagnon’s death. Chagnon has been credited for being an influential man in the North Country during his time. Photo provided

up a statue in honor of Samuel de Champlain but couldn’t come up with the money, so they turned to Father Chagnon,” said Delbel. “He went all over New Eng-

land and New York to the French communities, meeting with Franco-American societies, and got them to donate to this statue, which was put up on churc h land.”

DEC preparing management plan for state lands Meeting at Beekmantown Town Hall Wednesday

ALBANY — Efforts to develop a management plan for the state lands in Clinton County outside of the Adirondack Park have begun, the state Department of Environmental Conservation has announced. The plan will cover 15 parc els comprising more than 4,800 acr es of state lands managed by the DEC. The par cels include the 1,068-acre Macomb State Forest in the town of S chuyler F alls; t he 1 931-acre F lat R ock State Forest in the town of Altona; the 371acre Cadyville State Forest in the town of Plattsburgh; the 605-acre Gulf Unique Area in the town of Mooers and 11 parcels of de-

tached forest preserve lots in the towns of Clinton and Mooers that range in size from 12 acres to 236 acres. A p ublic av ailability s ession r egarding the Northern Clinton County State Lands will be held Wednesday, Nov. 2, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Beekmantown T own Hall, 571 Spellman Road. DEC staf f will be on hand at that time to listen to the public's thoughts, ideas and suggestions r egarding management of these state lands. The Gulf Unique Area has significant visual and recreational resources, including a trail that ends at the U.S.-Canada bor der. Macomb State Forest is part of the Macomb Reservation. Except for the Gulf Unique Area, most of the r ecreation that occurs on these lands is hunting.

The management plan will “seek to balance long-term ecosystem health with current and futur e demands for the management of these lands.” While timber management is permitted and will be part of the management of the state for ests lands, the cutting of trees on the forest preserve is prohibited by the New York State Constitution. Those inter ested in being included on a mailing list for information about the development of the unit management plan or wishing to submit comments ar e encouraged to contact Forester Dan Levy by phone at 897-1291; by e-mail at r5ump@ gw.dec.state.ny.us or by U.S. mail at NYSDEC, P .O.

codes which pr ohibit excessive debris on properties within the town. The petition, initially filed in Saranac T own Court, was transferred to Black Br ook Town Court due to a conflict of interest with the justices who served in Saranac, said Zappala. Ultimately, Reed was or dered to pay a one-time fine and clean up his pr operty. However, the issue has pr esented itself again, said Zappala, who has been working with Town Code Enfor cement Of ficer Todd Perry to investigate the matter. Zappala told the council Monday night he for esees the council going back to court “in the near future.” “It’s a matter of not complying with the laws that ar e on the books,” said Zappala. “In our opinion, ther e is a consistent disr egard with the pr oper way to r un a business on his property.” When reached for comment Tuesday, Reed said he understands and appr eciates the town’s point of view regarding his property and offered an explanation as to the amount of debris that has reaccrued on his land. “We were doing really good and were just slammed with cars [to recycle] and we could not clean up fast enough,” said Reed. Reed said he’s also had equipment pr oblems in recent weeks that have led to an inability to keep his pr operty clear ed as r outinely as both he and the town would like. “We r ecycle so many metals,” he continued. “Piles go down and come back up. In another week it will be all gone again.” Reed said he has not been contact by Perry regarding the most recent code issue concerns and welcomed a discussion with the code enforcement officer if it means r esolving the issue. “I don’t want [the town] to put me out of business,” said Reed, who said he wanted to avoid paying “exorbitant fines.” Zappala of fered an explanation of the town’s course of action Monday night, which will be primarily to further investigate the matter. “We’re looking to see if ther e ar e violations, and if ther e ar e violations, to pr osecute [Reed] and to bring him into compliance,” said Zappala.

North Countryman Editorial

Viewpoint

The time for action is now Local papers are here to stay O O

ver the last week, there have been two informative presentations made in the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School auditorium. The first dealt with the economic future of the North Country and was run by the North Country Economic Regional Development Council (NCEDC). The second was a presentation on the future of school districts by Alan Pole, who started his education career as a teacher at Chazy Central Rural School and has been a consultant on several studies in shared services or the merger of districts. In both cases, the message was similar, as both sides said it’s time to get the ball rolling to meet the needs of the taxpayers and the community at large. Whether it means developing a comprehensive plan that can be used as a guideline to work toward economic growth in the Adirondacks, bringing school boards together to open the dialogue into sharing services, or merging school districts, the time for action is now. Yes, now is the time to draft a plan to promote the region economically as well as consolidate services between school districts that continue to see a drop in enrollment and state aid. On the economic side, we hope that people had a chance to get to the community forum meetings held around the region over the past couple of months. Each meeting brought ideas to the council that have been used in drafting a plan that needs to be submitted to the state by Nov. 14. Once the plans from the 10 regions are submitted, they will compete for $200 million in funding from the state for projects to help bolster the regions’ economies. While NCEDC co-chair Garry Douglas said he was more concerned with the “stronger bond for collaboration in this seven-county region” and that “too much is made of the figure,” we encourage council members to make sure they present as solid a plan as they can to the state and focus on securing as much money as they can. In the near future, collaboration is not going to pay the bills that communities face. As for the discussion on school districts, the fact is the merger of school districts is something that needs to be seriously considered. The Crown Point and Ticonderoga districts are studying it. Others are taking a hard look at it. The discussion at the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School was presented jointly by

ELCS, Keene, Westport and Willsboro central schools. At more than one of the schools, sports are starting to disappear as the districts are unable to field varsity baseball, cheerleading and basketball as well as several modified or junior varsity teams. Due to the rising costs and decrease in funding, schools are balking at the former unified swimming and baseball teams that have been part of the landscape over the past years. Classes have been trimmed, with schools eliminating a second foreign language class or other elective classes that help students be more prepared for the next chapter in life. Only one of the four schools at the meeting said that they have a business program. In all, these students are no longer gaining advantages from being in a small school; they are losing opportunities to grow, participate and progress. Combined, these four school districts have seen almost one-fifth of their enrollment evaporate over the last decade, with studies suggesting that this trend will continue. A combination of school districts like the Elizabethtown-Lewis-Keene or WestportWillsboro Central Schools will save money, give students more classes and opportunities and keep extracurricular activities and sporting programs alive. Success stories, like the North Warren Central School District, exist and should be used as a model for how such a merger could be beneficial elsewhere. These decisions will not be easy. There is nothing that stirs more passion or sparks more controversy in a community than suggesting school closures. But the handwriting is on the wall. The statistics don’t lie. Enrollment and state aid are going to continue to decline, forcing more of a taxing burden on less people — and even more year-round residents out of the region. It is time we make some difficult decisions on our own, in the interest of what’s best for our children — before they are made for us by those with no vested interest at all.

Helping the United Way helps others

Response to a response In response to a letter printed in the Press-Republican on October 18, 201 1, by Karen Juhasz, where she says she is responding to my Letter to the Editor September 26th I want people to know I don’t mention names but I must in this case. I never wrote in any of my letters anything about Mr. Juhasz’s qualifications, why would I, he is not r unning for office in the T own of Mooers. I did state Twn & Counthat an outsider doesn’t want to comply with o ty Laws. He has been identified by his wife not me. I personally don’t know Mr. Juhasz and didn’t know who he was until someone told me who he was a couple of weeks ago, so how can she say I’ve tr eated him in any way . How can you say Supervisor Rudy Miller and Secr etary Car ol Payne have treated Mr. Juhasz shameful and embarrassing, when all they have asked of him is to fill out a building permit accurately and tr uthfully. Don’t try to get a Building Permit for one thing then change what you actually ar e building into something completely dif ferent. Don’t try to put a commercial building in a residentially zoned area. Election Day is November 08,2011, so please remember to vote. When you vote for Supervisor ask yourself one question which candidate would you tr ust to r un your business(“Justin Sample”, a 28 year old out door salesman who is a sports ref. and umpire) or (“Cory Ross”, a man who has run his own business for over 10 years and a resident in the Town of Mooers)?

W ers when it would have been easier to walk away. In these tough economic times, we have the opportunity to band together and show others our character . There are hundreds of people in our are a who need our assistance, and they depend on the agencies supported by the United Way.

Think twice about clear-cutting

N

ow the nights ar e crisp and frosty, it is har d to r esist the temptation to go out into the per ennial gar den and clear-cut all of this year ’s growth down to the ground. There ar e several r easons why you may want to r esist the urge of cutting back all of the perennial garden. First of all, if you cut down all your per ennials at ground level now, your garden will look pr etty darn bare through the winter — just a blank space which will be cover ed by snow. And, if we don’t get a lot of snow cover , it will be just a blank space of soil and mulch. If you r efrain fr om clear -cutting the perennial garden in the fall, you’ll have an array of plant skeletons and seed heads to view thr oughout winter . Although not as showy as the lush gr eenery and vibrant blossoms of summer , the per ennial gar den in winter has a subtle beauty not to be missed. And, as winter pr ogresses, these skeletons will be embellished by the crystalline tracery of fr ost and puf fy caps of snow, providing you with an ever-changing seasonal view. Not only ar e all those seed heads lovely to look at, but they’r e even mor e attractive when enlivened by over -wintering bir ds

which will feed on them, and even shelter in the harbor of the dead foliage. Scor es of perennials pr ovide pr oteinand oil-rich seeds for birds. Finally, some per ennials, such as Russian sage, ar e actually subshr ubs that have woody stem bases with overwintering buds. These perennials will pr obably be killed by a sever e fall pr uning. Instead, wait until early spring and scratch the epidermis, or bark, of the stems. If the tissue is white beneath, the stem is alive. If it is dark br own or blackened, and the bark slips easily, it has been winterkilled. Pr une these perennials down into live wood. As always, ther e ar e exceptions to the rule. Any diseased per ennials should be trimmed down and their foliage destroyed, as should plants that just sort of turn to black slimy mush after a freeze. So, just when do I clean up the gar den? The answer is during an unseasonably warm early spring day , when I’m about to go crazy from cabin fever!

Having a healthier Halloween

H

alloween is just around the corner now, the start of the holiday season and unfortunately for many, the holiday weight gain. Do you have a plan all the candy your kids will be bringing home, or a plan to battle the Halloween candy bowl at the office? How about the quality of the tr eats you will be giving out? All things to consider that can make a big difference. Halloween is something that most children are really excited about and re ally excited about all the “CANDY” they will be getting. Well, how about you make a plan with your childr en? When they bring home all of their treats, go through it as a family, which you should anyway to inspect for safety purposes. But, ask your children which is their favorite. Allow them to go thr ough and sort out their favorites and thr ow the r est away. That’s right, why keep it ar ound? Then, put the candy, that together you have decided to keep, away for treats. As an adult you may be tempted by Halloween candy and other tr eats lying around at the off ice and even at home. This is wher e will power comes in. Ask yourself “Is it really worth it?” “Really?”

Try to health it up a little by giving out healthier tr eat options like individuallywrapped packages of pretzels, raisins, yogurt cover ed raisins, craisins, or Halloween-shaped crackers. I personally usually go for the pr etzels. They come packaged in cute orange and black bags decorated for Halloween, and the pr etzels are in cute Halloween shapes.

‘Taste of the North Country’ comes back to SUNY Field House Nov. 12 By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — T aste of the North Country is only two weeks away. The North Country Chamber of Commerce’s annual event — which centers ar ound displays and samples from local restaurants and vendors — will r eturn to the Plattsbur gh State Field House on Rugar Str eet Wednesday, Nov. 12. Jody A. Parks, one of the organizers of the event, said T aste of the North Country is something more and more people attend each year. “There’s definitely something for everybody at Taste of the North Country,” said Parks. “We’ve got many restaurants and vendors r eturning from last year and even some new ones.” New vendors this year include Amazing Gr ace V ineyards i n C hazy and Hid -In Pines V ineyards in Morrisonville, as well as Batters Up Bake Shop in Plattsburgh. “We’ve also got Parker Family

Maple Farm and Uno Chicago Grill,” said Parks, adding others have re cently been added to the list. Other participating businesses this year include American Legion Post 20, Anthony’s Restaurant & Bistro, Butcher Block, Conr oy’s Or ganics, Dame’s Discount Liquor and W ine Specialty Shop, D eLish b y I rises, T he G round Round, Legends, Liquor & Wine Warehouse, McDonald’s, My Cup Tea Café & Tea Room, Ninety Nine Restaurant, Perkin’s Restaurant, Sam’s Club, Samuel D’s, and Walmart Supercenter.

only a fun event, said Parks, it’s one of the chamber ’s most successful fundraisers. Money raised from Taste of the North Country helps the chamber of commerce with its continued efforts of promoting and marketing the region, said Parks, which is another reason to attend the event. “It’s a great opportunity to support the chamber and our local businesses and have a wonderful evening at the same time,” said Parks. Taste of the North Country will begin Nov. 12 with an auction pre view at 5 p.m., followed by a silent auction and tasting from 5:30-7 p.m. The main auction will be held from 7-7:30 p.m. Admission for the event is $18, with tickets available at the door.

Autism Alliance of Northeastern New York holds first event FLAME performs for Plattsburgh community, inspires families

By Katherine Clark

katherine@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — FLAME entertained more than 300 audience members in a special performance at the Staf ford Middle School on Oct. 22. The event was sponsor ed by the newly-formed Autism Alliance of Northeastern New York, a gr oup that has branched fr om the annual Autism A wareness Walk. “We wanted to still work

alongside the autism walk but we also saw this new group as a way to make a broader impact on the community a nd h elp t hose a ffected by autism,” said Autism Alliance board member Melissa Provost. The Autism Alliance is on a mission to empower individuals and families touched by autism spectrum disor ders thr ough support and education. Though the alliance is still a few months away fr om becoming an of ficial nonprofit organization, Autism Alliance president Lisa Brisco said the FLAME performance was a pr eview to the kind of events the gr oup hopes hold in the future. Brisco said it is “some-

times har d for someone with an autistic family member to plan a family outing to places like a fair , or Parc Safari without worrying their family may be judged.” Events like the FLAME concert ar e an inspiration to the those affected by autism, she said, allowing families to have a safe and comfortable place to enjoy themselves. “It’s a natural occurr ence for families to go out an do activities t ogether,” B risco said. “When you have a child with a developmental disability it can be mor e challenging. I t’s s o i mportant that we have events like this so people don’t feel so isolated, they can connect with each other and shar e

their experiences.” FLAME, a musical group, made up of 10 people with developmental and physical disabilities, including autism, Down syndr ome, and blindness. The group is based out of Lexington Center, the Fulton County Chapter of the New York State Association of Regional Councils, Inc. Brisco said audience members were thrilled to be part of the event, especially one 1 1-year-old girl who was very excited to meet another person that shares her disability. “She was thrilled; she is blind and has rar ely got to meet another blind person,” Brisco said, adding it was especially exciting for audi-

ence members or family members who shared disabilities with band members to see how much the group members have accomplished. The band members, their accomplishments and talent inspire people and changes the way the general public view p eople w ith d isabilities, she added. According to Brisco, the idea to host FLAME in Plattsburgh came fr om a board member that had brought her daughter to a FLAME performance in Saranac Lake. She said it was so inspiring, for a parent of a child with Down syndrome to see that it is possible for a child living with developmental issues,

like autism, to be able to achieve gr eatness and to live their dreams. One of the Alliance’s missions is to bring mor e autism education and early autism screening to the residents in Plattsburgh. “We want to educate the community her e, not at events held miles away but to have quarterly educational and family fun activities here,” Brisco said. Those wishing to get involved with the Autism Alliance can go to the Autism Walk’s Facebook page by searching for “Autism Awareness W alk - Plattsburgh, NY” or contact Autism Alliance board member Laura Carmichael at 570-7225.

Fire department auxiliary to host first ‘Trunk or Treat’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

WEST CHAZY — Pr oviding a safe environment in which children can trick-or -treat is the goal of one or ganization in the hamlet of West Chazy. The West Chazy V olunteer Fir e

Department Ladies Auxiliary will host their inaugural “Trunk or Treat” at the fir e department on State Route 22 Monday, Oct. 31. The idea for the event, said auxiliary member Angela Goodspeed, came from a friend of the auxiliary, who hosted a similar event in Alburgh, Vt. “We figur ed it would be a fun,

safe way for kids to be able to trick or treat and not worry about cro ssing the road,” said Goodspeed. The event will consist of mor e than a dozen cars lined up in the fire department parking lot fr om which childr en will be able to go “trunk to tr unk” to get their Halloween candy , explained Goodspeed.

“We’re hoping for a good turnout,” said Goodspeed. “W e hope to see lots of kids and their parents.” Trunk or Treat will be offered from 5 to 6:30 p.m., with those wishing to host their own vehicle in the event encouraged to show up between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. to register and decorate. The parking

lot will be closed to traf fic after 5 p.m. For more information about participating in T runk or T reat, contact Goodspeed at 645-2105 or Kelly Morrison at 1-802-598-5222. “We want to make this a tradition that will grow more and more every year,” said Goodspeed.

An important election year This is an important election year for the residents of Mooers. W e have for the first time in decades some very important issues facing us as voters. Our decisions will have a serious impact on how well our Town is run in the future. The Democrats are offering a slate of candidates that will guarantee the same integrity and competence, we as r esidents, have come to expect over the last 38 years. We believe they will have the courage and fortitude to serve the needs of our entir e populous. Our candidate for Supervisor, Cory Ross, is a graduate of SUNY Canton with an Associate degr ee in Mortuary Science. Cory has worked in the funeral pro fession for 17 years and has owned Ross Funeral Homes since 2007 where he resides. He has the maturity, intelligence, and the fiscal responsibility required for the position. His integrity is unquestionable. He is the person needed to guide us through fiscally troubling times. Our candidates for Councilmen are Alfred “Alfie” Ladue and Michael W illette. They both have the experience, backgr ound and stability needed. Alfred Ladue is a 1992 graduate of Chateaugay Central and attended Clinton Community College. He has been employed

at Clinton Corr ectional for 8 years. He served in the Mooers Fire Department for 12 years and was an EMT for the last three. “Alfie” currently serves as the MooersYouth Director, a position held since 2008. Since 1996 he has coached soccer, basketball and baseball. “Alfie” wants to be a str ong voice for the rights of the people of Mooers. He is reliable, respectful and pledges to pr ovide fairness. Michael W illette is a graduate of Northeastern Clinton. He holds an Associates degree in Business Administration fr om Clinton Co mmunity.

He curr ently is Secr etary and Youth Director for the Mooers K of C Counsel6136. He is District Vice Chairman of the Membership Committee. Joshua has the education, integrity and ener gy needed to handle the complexities of this position. We are proud of our candidates.

He has the education and contacts that will make for a smooth transition. We are very fortunate to have a candidate of Cory’s backgr ound and abilities.
