Surveys will help decide fate of Dr. Clark’s house Town residents asked to voice input by Jan. 1 By Sarah L. Cronk CHAZY — After Dr. George Clark passed away in May, his house was left to the Alice T. Miner Museum. Now, the museum needs to decide where to go from there. Museum members hope the residents of the town of Chazy, including Sciota and West Chazy, will want to accept the house, with various ideas for plans to be decided. “Really, we would like the building to be used for the benefit of the whole town,” said museum board member David Martin. To determine what the people of the town would like to see of the building, a survey has been created, which Martin is asking people to complete by Friday, Jan. 1.

“We really would like people to know there is a survey and we hope they’ll participate,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity for the town of Chazy if we can develop a plan for using it and we would like that plan to be based on what the people in the town want.” If the circa 1813 house, located on Fiske Road, is not accepted by the museum within a year, the house will be surrendered to the Clinton County Historical Association. One potential issue with the museum accepting the house is the economic feasibility of the museum, explained Town Supervisor Staub G. Spiegel. “That’s the main concern right now is just seeing if it can all work. It would be a beautiful addition to the town to keep it as part of the history,” he added. According to Richard West, a

local builder, the house is in good shape. “But, of course any house needs a little bit of this and a little bit of that,” said Martin. In brainstorming options for the house, if the museum does accept it, Martin said there would be an exhibit in memory of Clark’s mother, Harriet, who collected furniture. “For instance, in Sciota, there used to be a furniture factory back in the 1800s,” explained Martin. “He has a bed, a school bed that was made in the Sciota Manufacturing Company.” Located in the house is another bed, which belonged to William H. Seward, the former Secretary of State known for purchasing Alaska for the U.S. Other ideas would be an exhibit devoted to childhood, as some of Clark’s toys and books from his childhood are still lo-

Parade of Toys Getting creative for the holiday season celebrates its 25-year history By Sarah L. Cronk

By Sarah L. Cronk ROUSES POINT — Twenty-five years ago, Peg Barcomb approached the village board to present the idea of a Parade of Toys. Today, the annual holiday kickoff continues. In 1984, after hearing about a Parade of Bears being hosted somewhere in the country, Barcomb decided the village of Rouses Point should host a similar event. After approaching then-Mayor Paul Cloutier and the trustees, it was decided to have a Parade of Toys, so children and adults could bring their favorite toy, not just a teddy bear. “The first year we had several, including the mayor, and they all brought one of their favorite child’s toys of what they had when they were kids,” recalled Barcomb. The young and old alike marched from the Dodge Memorial Library to Rouse Park on Lake Street. After a successful first year, some women in the village decided to have hot cocoa and cookies for everybody at the park.

ROUSES POINT — For the last 14 years, Naomi Treadwell has been putting her creative talent to work. Back in Maine, where Treadwell is from, she became a Creative Memories consultant, helping people gather their favorite photos in a unique way. Creative Memories, a scrapbooking company which began in 1987, began the scrapbooking revolution, according to Treadwell. “At that time, there were no scrapbook supplies in stores. It wasn’t something that a lot of people thought about,” explained Treadwell in terms of preserving photos. “When I first started out, you couldn’t go out to Wal-Mart to buy scrapbooking stuff; it just wasn’t there.” After hearing about the company on a radio program, Treadwell joined a class and eventually became a consultant. “I signed up and I’ve been doing it for 14 years,” she said. “I really 2008 Ford Taurus SEL** STK#T77T, 1 Owner, 29,425 miles $19,900 2008 Ford E250 STK#U33U, Rental Repurchase, 9,736 miles $18,900 **

love it. I love their products.” After moving to Rouses Point earlier this year, Treadwell began a scrapbooking class Nov. 12. Now, she’s taking scrapbooking a step further, having her first cardmaking workshop, Thursday, Dec. 3. “I have a kit and it has all the prefolded cards and envelopes to make 18 cards,” explained Treadwell. “Basically, you make 18 Christmas cards. They may be a little more special,” she continued. “You wouldn’t send them necessarily to everybody on your list, but to special people on your list. [It] has a little more meaning than just buying it from the store.” Treadwell said the cardmaking class is suitable for adults and children, and would make a good mother-daughter activity. “I already have a mother-daughter team signed up to make Christmas cards,” she said. Treadwell even worked with her 10-year-old daughter, Katherine, to create sample cards. During the workshop, which will be held at Gaines Marina’s See CARDMAKING, page 10

United Way donations help local people, not pad pockets, executive director says “This is a story that’s resurfaced from June 2008,” said Bernardi. “It looks like [CBS News] was doing a story on charitable giving and just pulled this up as an example.” Recently, Kirk A. Stallsmith, vice president of the local United Way’s board of directors, learned of concerns regarding making donations to the organization from employees of Georgia-Pacific in Plattsburgh, where Stallsmith serves as general manager. Several employees had seen or learned of the CBS News report and mentioned they wouldn’t participate in donating to the United Way campaign as a result. Stallsmith immediately responded to the concerns by issuing a company-wide e-mail which clarified several key points in the news report. “People need to be cautious when they read or hear something on the news and not draw broad assumptions,” said Stallsmith. “It was clear by reading the CBS report that there was a branch of the United Way and a few select other charitable organizations

Executive director aims to put concerns to rest following recent CBS News report

“Nobody on the staff is getting a huge salary or bonuses or anything of that nature.”

By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — The story of scandal involving the salary of the former executive director of the United Way of Central Carolinas may be more than a year old, but it’s now beginning to have a ripple effect in the North Country. John C. Bernardi, executive director of the United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties Inc., said it has come to his attention a story which aired on CBS News Nov. 19 titled “Recession-Proof Job? Non-Profit CEO,” has raised concerns locally about charitable giving. In the report, the controversial salary of former Charlotte, N.C., United Way executive director Gloria Pace King was referenced, highlighting how King pulled in a $380,000 salary and $2.1 million retirement package.

where perhaps the board and the leadership of the organization lost track of their ultimate mission.” Stallsmith also noted there are “vast differences in the size and scope of charitable groups depending on the population base they are serving.” “I would certainly expect a CEO of the United Way branch in a large metropolitan area to make a larger salary than someone in a small community with a small staff,” said Stallsmith. “It essentially becomes comparable to the size and scope of the fund raising and support effort.” However, the salary of the former executive director at the Charlotte United Way, was, in Stallsmith’s opinion, “absurd.” “The person who took over the position with a lower salary appeared to be in the proper compensation range given the responsibilities,” he said, adding however, there may be significant details not given to the CBS reporter that provided “some justification for how she was compensated.” “On the surface, it certainly sends a very poor message and I am sure in Charlotte, many United Way donors are seeking answers to their questions,” he said. The North Country, said Stallsmith, is fortunate to have a group of local community leaders who “understand what it means to serve, what the expectations are and the responsibilities associated.” “The people that I have met on the charitable boards in the North Country take their role very seriously and they do so with a very high sense of ethics and integrity,” he said. “Just because one thing occurred at one district, states away, does not make it a common practice nor should it paint a broad picture of United Way in general.”


Bernardi agreed, adding the report has “created obvious concerns.” “The idea, from our standpoint, is to let people know that we’re very healthy and our salaries are in line with other human service providers in the region. Nobody on the staff is getting a huge salary or bonuses or anything of that nature,” said Bernardi, who disclosed the combined annual salary for himself and two other employees of the local organization is approximately $140,000. Bernardi further noted only 12 percent of donations specifically designated for the local United Way goes toward administrative and management expenses, which he said is “quite low.” Onehundred percent of donations to specific partner agencies, however, go directly to those agencies, he said. “In our case, every penny goes to the organization,” Bernardi said. When compared to the United Way of Central Carolinas, the service area of the local United Way as well as the population served is a fraction of the size, said Bernardi. That’s even given the recent expansion of United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties into Franklin County, he added. “It’s increased the size of our service area significantly, both geographically and by population,” said Bernardi. “It’s significant, but we’re lucky in some respects because we do have a great network of volunteers. “Expanding into Franklin County is clearly going to be a big challenge,” Bernardi added. “We do think it’s going to be, in the long run, great for the region.” Though the organization is now in the process of “building relationships and beginning to form a positive presence in Franklin County,” the main focus of the current fundraising campaign of United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties will be on raising $700,000 for its existing 33 partner agencies, said Bernardi. The campaign is approaching the half-way mark, which is important, he added, because “the needs are so great” in the region. “We’re getting there,” said Bernardi. “We’d like to be a little further ahead, but we remain optimistic that we’re going to be able to make the goal.”

Santa Night returning to help Christmas Bureau By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When Thanksgiving is over, many people’s thoughts turn to Christmas, and it’s no different for Alice E. Heckard. Heckard, along with Tammy J. Perrotte, oversees The Christmas Bureau, and this is the time of year when the nonprofit organization really begins to pick up steam, said Heckard. The nonprofit organization begins organizing donations of toys, clothing and other gifts to distribute to lowincome families in need at Christmastime. It’s a tradition that’s continued for more than 40 years. “[The Christmas Bureau] was started by a small group of women from local churches in the 1960s, I believe, and it grew from there,” explained Heckard. “They started by collecting food baskets then eventually started collecting used toys.” The operation grew over the years and even changed hands in coordination, Heckard said. Eventually, the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of

House From page 1 “We’re fishing for ideas,” said Martin. If interested in voicing your opinion about Clark’s home, the Chazy-Westport Telephone Company will be sending out a copy of the survey to all of their customers. The survey will also be located at D & D Market in Sciota, Guma’s Restaurant and Dodge Library

Clinton and Franklin Counties coordinated the distributions — which then began consisting of new toys — and did so for a number of years until The Christmas Bureau was officially created as its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit. “It’s more like a business now than ever,” said Heckard. “And, it keeps getting better.” Heckard attributes the support of The Christmas Bureau to the generosity of people in the North Country, especially those behind an event known as “Santa Night.” The annual event involves members of the community dressing in holiday style and visiting local restaurants and bars, serenading patrons with Christmas carols. “Since they started doing this, every year it’s grown and gotten better and better,” said Heckard. “They started out by buying us toys to give to the families and now they give us a large amount of money each year. And, they still buy us toys and other things we need. It’s amazing.” Christopher J. Huchro, a financial advisor with West Bay Financial Group, coordinates Santa Night each year and said he is also overwhelmed with

the support Santa Night participants give year after year. “We want to help the less fortunate and there’s no simpler way than getting people on a bus and going to eight or nine places and singing — sometimes terribly — to raise money and bring attention to The Christmas Bureau,” said Huchro. Santa Night participants raise money to go caroling the second Friday each December, said Huchro, and collect any donations they receive that night to give to The Christmas Bureau. “And, we’re always recruiting more people to join us,” said Huchro. “We never know how many people we’re going to have.” Last year, roughly 40 people joined in on the Santa Night festivities, raising more than $23,000. This year ’s fundraising goal for Santa Night is $30,000, said Huchro. “We’re going to try really hard to make it,” he said, adding it will take the participation of even more people this year. “We need them to come out, even if they don’t have the

greatest singing voice,” he said, laughing. “It’s just a great time.” Heckard said by people getting into the spirit of the season, like with Santa Night, more and more families are helped every year. And, in a year following one of national economic decline, Heckard feels this year The Christmas Bureau will be needed more than ever. “We helped 1,138 families

last year and we already know that number ’s going to be up this year. We can already tell by the number of applications coming in,” said Heckard. “I’m a little concerned this year our numbers are going to jump considerably and I’m hoping our donations aren’t down. If they stay where they normally are, we’ll be fine, but if they drop, we’re going to be hurting.” Those interested in helping

erhaps you caught the recent ad by Verizon Wireless. Playing off iPhone commercials, the ad states “There’s a Map for That” and presents a map that compares AT&T 3G coverage to Verizon’s coverage making Verizon look superior. Not liking the ad, AT&T filed for a restraining order to block the ad and, on Nov. 19, IDG News Service reported a federal judge denied the order and basically told AT&T to stop whining. It was reported AT&T did not dispute the truth in the ad, only it was misleading to customers. AT&T provides wireless service using three different technologies: 3G, EDGE and GPRS. Between all three technologies AT&T reaches more than 300 million people or about 97 percent of the population. Consider only 3G and the numbers drop off to about 75 percent. When AT&T 3G coverage is juxtaposed on a map it looks pathetic. What Verizon did was compare apples to apples; AT&T argued that was misleading and apples to oranges make more sense. There is no doubt the iconic iPhone is a super-sexy device. But, no matter how cool it is, some users are beginning to wonder why service routinely stinks. Consider a recent New York Times article “Customers Angered as iPhones Overload AT&T” where users are relating cell performance to dial-up

like speeds. So, what’s Verizon up to? For one thing, Verizon is smitten with the iPhone but the iPhone is contractually married to AT&T. Perhaps Verizon feels it can shake up the AT&T customer base. For another, insiders think a divorce may in fact be looming between the iPhone and AT&T. The exclusive deal between Apple and AT&T is thought to be over next year allowing Apple the option to switch to another carrier.

ccording to the December issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, the Nintendo Wii game system has surprising benefits for people with Parkinson’s disease. Researchers were amazed to find use of the Wii system for one month with 20 Parkinson’s patients improved their motors skills, increased their energy level, and alleviated symptoms of depression. The participants in the study, who are in all stages of the disease but do not have gait problems, played Wii tennis, bowling, and boxing for one hour each, three times a week. They continued to show improvement as long as they played regularly, however, when they stopped playing for one month, their motor skills depreciated and their symptoms of depression returned. The secret, according to researcher and occupational therapist Dr. Ben Herz from the Medical College of Georgia, is chemistry — specifically dopamine. Dopamine is the substance the brain releases responsible for normal movement. Video games and exercise both cause the brain to secrete dopamine, which is normally deficient in persons with Parkinson’s disease. Dopamine is essential for voluntary, functional movements, which can worsen rapidly in Parkinson’s cases if they are not routinely used. Use of the Wii system enhances both while having fun.

As Dr.Herz says, “Game systems are the future of rehab.” His next project involves Parkinson’s patients with gait problems to see how they respond to the Wii. The beauty of Wii games is they can be enjoyed in a home environment and closely simulate the activities they portray. The games require hand-eye coordination, depth and distance perception, and sequenced movement — all areas that improve with practice. The games are also a great way for caregivers to spend quality time with their loved ones, no matter what their ability.

More coupon secrets: big stores, bigger discounts


n many areas, shoppers have several grocery stores to choose from. The same area may have smaller grocery markets, discount grocers that offer “everyday low prices” and large-scale, major-chain supermarkets. Many people tend to consider large supermarkets to be more expensive than their low-price, themed counterparts. This is a reputation that the large supermarkets typically don’t deserve, as they can be some of the best places to save big. Consider this point: Grocery stores that offer “everyday low prices” definitely have prices that are not too high. But prices here are also usually not too low, either. These stores offer the same prices on items week to week, with few to no sales. By contrast, the larger supermarkets offer “high/low” prices. On any given day, it’s true about half the items’ prices will be higher at the supermarket than at an “everyday low price” store. But prices on the other half of the items will be lower. Those are the items that Super-Couponers watch for price drops on. When the prices take a big dip, that’s when we can move in with our coupons and bring the price down even more. This is an advantage supermarkets can have over other stores. During a typical 12-week sales cycle at a supermarket, the price of any particular item will fluctuate from high to low. But just once during that time does the price hit its lowest low — we call this the “12-week-low.” This is the lowest price that item will appear at during the price cycle. Why is it a good idea to watch for these 12-week-lows? That 12-week-low price is typically 50 percent lower than the regular shelf price. Any time we’re able to buy something for half the original price, even without a coupon, it’s

time to buy it! Of course, we also want to use coupons at that point to bring the price down even more. With coupons we can often save 70 percent or more off the original price. Here’s an example. A box of granola bars is usually $3.29 at my large supermarket. The same brand of granola bars is $2.99 at an “every-day low price” grocery in town. The grocery store doesn’t change or cycle its prices; the granola bars are $2.99 every single day. But at the supermarket, the granola bars will go on sale numerous times over the By Jill Cataldo next 12 weeks. Some weeks the bars will be the full $3.29, but other weeks the price will be lower … and lower still. I watched the bars over several weeks and saw them go on sale for $2.99, and $2.49 and $1.99. But one week, the bars dropped again, to “2 for $3,” or $1.50 a box. During this entire time, I was holding onto a $1 coupon for the granola bars. When the bars hit $1.50, they were now on sale for less than half their original price. I used my $1 coupon and took the box home for 50 cents. If I had purchased the granola bars at the “every-day low price” store with my $1 coupon, I would still have paid $1.99 a box. But I picked them up for a quarter of that price … at the larger, so-called “more expensive” supermarket!

To put everything into perspective for the students at the assembly, who ranged from kindergarten to 12th grade, superintendent Kevin R. Mulligan explained a few statistics. “Two teams that represented, out of a possible eight teams, four for the boys, four for the girls, you’re looking at two teams that came back with Chazy Central Rural School’s girls varsity coach Karen Sherman- medals, with plaques, with Trombley speaks of how proud she was of the girls team making championships,” said Mulligan. “Our girls team, they did it to the final four, during an assembly held at the school. lose the finals, they lost a very tough game to Arkport, but they came in second place out of close to 200 “To go there and to play the way we did and to come from behind to beat Hamilton schools in New York State.” Mulligan also explained no other school in ... was a special moment for us,” he added.

Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center continues advancements By Sarah L. Cronk

History of the center PLATTSBURGH — When Dr. Taher Zandi began the Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center in 1987, there was little he could do for his patients. “Basically, we would assess the patients, and we had about 30 percent probability of accurate assessment,” Zandi, a clinical neuropsychologist, explained. “So, 70 percent we didn’t know. Now, we’re at about 80 percent accuracy.” Other progresses made in the last 20 years include being able to assess a patient, and if determined to have Alzheimer ’s disease, offer them medication. “Twenty years ago, they would come here, and I would assess them and I would diagnose them ... and I had nothing to offer them,” he recalled. In matching with the advancements on how to treat the disease, services have increased as well. “We have so many things going around in this area, which we had nothing in the past,” said Zandi. “It was more like a death sentence in the past.” Some of the services Zandi refers to are the Third Age Adult Day Center, which has been a “home away from home” for patients since 1990. The Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center sponsors the day center, which provides educational, social, physical and therapeutic recreational activities. Located in Sibley Hall at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, the day center also allows patients to work on hobbies, be motivated, and increase their self-esteem. “[Before the day center] there were only caregivers,” Zandi said. “So, things have certainly improved.”

Types of Alzheimer’s The Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center serves the people of Clinton, Franklin, Essex and St. Lawrence counties. Throughout the four counties, 12 percent of the population are vulnerable to Alzheimer ’s. “They’re over age 65,” said Zandi of the 12 percent. “As the age increases, the vulnerability increases. If somebody is in the range of 74 or over, and they have some memory problems, they are better off to get in touch with a provider or get in touch with us, so we can do assessment and treat them.” However, some people are at risk for Alzheimer ’s, not be-

When Zandi opened the Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center 22 years ago, it was the only one of its kind in the area. “There was absolutely nothing here for the older adults,” he said. “When you look to a bigger city, event as big as Albany, which is not that big, you had a multitude of services for geriatrics. We had none in the area.” By having a center in the area, Zandi was able to work with patients to keep them in the mild to moderate stage of Alzheimer ’s. “Typically, if you have a treatment in place, you can prolong the mild stage,” Zandi said. “If I can keep this person in the mild to moderate stage as much as possible, I’ve done a great thing for them versus if I let it go and treat them as if they’re just old, they’re going to fall into the severe stage and they’re going to stay in the severe stage for many years.” “Life quality is a factor,” he added.

Importance of treating Alzheimer’s

cause of their age, but because of genetics. “There are different versions of Alzheimer ’s disease,” explained Zandi. “There is a presenile dementia of Alzheimer ’s disease, which happens before age 65. That is the most hereditary version of the disease.” For those who may be worried they are at risk for Alzheimer ’s because one or both parents suffered from the disease, Zandi said it’s best not to worry about it. “We can always collect what we call a baseline,” he said. So, if somebody is thinking that ‘Oh gosh, something might happen to me,’ we can always do a baseline for that and see how they do down the road. Nevertheless, I don’t see any particular reason for people doing that, simply because it’s anxiety provoking.” The other version of Alzheimer ’s disease, is post-senile dementia, which occurs in people over the age of 65, and is often less hereditary.

Quick references for Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group


he Alzheimer ’s Caregiver Support Groups meet at eight locations throughout Northeastern NY. The following is a list of meeting times and places.

Elizabethtown Second Wednesday of the month at the Horace Nye Nursing Home conference room, Park Street. 12 p.m.

Hogansburg Third Thursday of the month at the senior center, 29 Business Park Road. 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Malone First Wednesday of the month at the Third Age Adult Center, 24 Fourth St., Suite 7. 7 p.m.

Plattsburgh First Monday of the month, State University of New York at Plattsburgh, Sibley Hall, Rugar Street. 11 a.m. Note: Respite provided. Must call Third Age Adult Day Center at 564-2329 to register before 2 p.m. on the Friday before.

Saranac Lake Fourth Thursday of the month at the Adirondack Medical Center first floor conference room, Lake Colby Drive. 6 p.m.

Ticonderoga Second Tuesday of the month at the InterLakes Health, Ethan Allan Library, 1019 Wicker St., 4 p.m. For more information regarding the caregivers support group, contact the Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center at 564-3377.

Evaluation The center is a neuropsychological site, which offers an extensive evaluation of both mood and memory in patients. “The reason we do mood is because so much of the mood difficulties will translate into memory difficulties,” Zandi explained. “It just robs you of memory, concentration, things like that.” During an assessment of a patient, to determine whether or not they have Alzheimer ’s, Zandi will meet with the client for three to four hours and decide on the best course of treatment, with follow-ups every six months.

Why is it so important to be treated for Alzheimer ’s, instead of letting it run its course? “From the economic perspective, it’s a huge difference,” Zandi explained. “The cost of going to a nursing home is about $85,000 a year. People can’t afford it, so they go on Medicaid. Then, Medicaid breaks down, as we know.” Instead, Zandi believes spending $15,000 on medications and treatment is a much better way of helping the patient, and they are able to stay at home. During the severe stage of Alzheimer ’s, Zandi also explained a patient is at greater risk of wandering away from home, not being able to take care of themselves, and will be unable to recognize things around them. “They jeopardize their lives,” said Zandi. Also during the severe stage, patients are at risk of ending up in a vegetative state. “You’re really not functioning,” he said. “You’re living, you’re alive, but you’re not really functioning on a social basis at all. And, a seizure may occur.”

Looking to the future Zandi pointed out the number of changes that have taken place, in terms of Alzheimer ’s disease, in the past 20 years. During the next 20 years, Zandi expects even more advancements in medicine. He also believes if people understand some of the risk factors of getting Alzheimer ’s, the number of people affected will decrease. “Lifestyles are very important,” Zandi said. “So, for the people to eat good, exercise, stay away from smoking and too much alcohol, is something that will help them a lot as they get older.” According to Zandi, statistics have shown people with poor diet and those who smoke are at great risk for high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes — diseases often associated with the heart. “These are the three enemies of the brain,” he explained. “We typically look at it from the heart perspective, but anything that goes back to the heart, goes to the brain. Also, Zandi expects there will be a way to take out the gene that causes Alzheimer ’s, which will reduce the chance for it to be hereditary.

It’s kind of neat that they’ve kept it going.” Barcomb had similar sentiments. “I think it’s wonderful,” she said. “It’s something that now it’s been going on so long, everybody in the village looks forward to it. With the older people bringing their toys as well as the children, it’s made for a lot of good conversation. I think it’s turned into a wonderful thing.”

Solution to last week’s puzzle

SATURDAY November 28, 2009


Get the kids outside! H

istorically, rural communities have provided their local youth with few opportunities for structured recreation beyond the scope of school sports or summer youth program offerings. Most small towns don't have the malls, gyms, movie theaters or civic centers typically found in larger communities. Recreation is often left to a child’s imagination, which can be a positive or negative outlet, depending on the direction we provide. Today’s kids are presented with a wealth of electronic attractions ranging from computers, to video games to cell phones and beyond. They will make due with the resources that are available to them. In the Adirondacks, the most readily available local recreational resources are our woods and waters. The region is blessed with a wealth of natural attractions that attract travelers from all over the world to play in our big backyard. In recent years, I’ve researched a number of opportunities and programs designed to introduce local children to the outdoors. I’ve been encouraged with what I’ve found and I’m thrilled with the range and diversity of the offerings. Throughout the Adirondacks, there are numerous opportunities for children, and their parents to develop the appropriate skills, outdoor education and appreciation to effectively enjoy the local environment. Best of all, most of the programs are offered

at little or no cost. If our children don't possess the necessary tools, skills and knowledge to utilize their surroundings, they are severely disadvantaged and underprivileged. It is a fact of life in the North Country, we must provide our own recreation! We go outside because it is in our nature to go outside. We go out to climb the mountains and to paddle the rivers, to fish the streams, to photograph the scenes and to plunge into the ponds or ski the hills. We do such things to stay in touch with something inside our being, to expand our horizons and to test ourselves. When we cease to do such things we are no longer alive, we are simply existing. There are few activities that foster the bond between parents and their children than participating in outdoor adventures, simply enjoying the woods together. The outdoors offers inclusive activities that allow both adults and kids to share equally in the experience. Such activities require cooperation and trust between adults and kids while helping to instill traditional values, connectivity with nature and a healthy lifestyle. A parent will discover more about their child in an hour of playing together than can be accomplished in a lifetime of conversation. Shared play is the most genuine act that children and adults can know. It is a fact known throughout history. Herodotus, the Greek historian claimed

The mountains, forests, lakes and streams of the Adirondacks provide an unlimited spectrum of outdoor recreation opportunities. Key to unlocking these treasures is the involvement of one responsible, adult mentor to introduce a kid to the outdoors. For the sake of your community, step up, step out and be that special person. Children will remember you! that: “Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.” I’d like to see New York institute a statewide, school based initiative to promote youth participation in the outdoors. Although numerous public and private groups are currently working to get youth interested and involved in the outdoors; the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation should be charged with the responsibility for developing a comprehensive educational/recreational program for the schools. Such a program could be be offered as a component of physical education or wellness. Increasing youth participation in outdoors is one of the major issues facing the recreation industry today. If young people are not introduced to these opportunities at

an early age, they will engage in other hobbies and interests. Remember, it’s human nature to follow the path of least resistance. The necessity of fostering the next generation of hunters, anglers, hikers, bikers, climbers, skiers and paddlers is one of the most pressing needs of the current conservation community. Today’s children will be tomorrow's policy makers. They will be making the decisions about the utilization and protection of our shared natural resources. In order to insure the viability of these lands and waters in the future, we must make efforts in the current day.
