Northern Tier Papa John’s all about being local By Sarah L. Cronk CHAMPLAIN — The Papa John’s on U.S. Route 11 is locally-owned, which is something very important to Tawnya Hanson. Hanson, co-owner of the Champlain location, said many people don’t realize the majority of Papa John’s are owned by locals. “With any franchise that has a big name, like Papa John’s, Dunkin Donuts, Kentucky Fried Chicken, they think it’s that company that owns it and it’s not,” Hanson explained. “It’s franchisees that buy into the company name.” Hanson, director of operations at M & W Foods Inc., said one day she was eating Papa John’s with M & W vice president Ray Aley when he brought up the idea of owning one. “After a meeting we were nibbling away on the leftovers and he said, ‘We should open a Papa John’s,’ and I started to laugh and said, ‘Yeah, we should with as much business as we give them.’ About a week later, he called me up. He wasn’t joking. I was. He said, ‘We’re opening a Papa John’s, where do you want to go,’” recalled Hanson. She chose the location of Champlain having been a manager of the Dunkin Donuts there for many years and being familiar with the area. “I like the people in Champlain,” said Hanson. On Aug. 24, Hanson, along with Aley and her boyfriend, Chad Brown, opened Papa

John’s. Brown and Hanson, both of Plattsburgh, said they feel it’s really important for people to realize they are locals who want to help the community in whatever way possible. “We really want to get involved in the community, we just haven’t had a chance yet,” Hanson explained. “We’d like to get involved

in the schools in the area. Maybe do an honor student program. There’s enough space here to maybe have a birthday party.” Brown said another way they’ve been working to help the community is by extending their delivery zone. “It’s well over the boundaries that we were given by Papa John’s,” he explained. “They

only give us a three-and-a-half-mile radius, but we want to give it to the people.” “I’d rather drive the extra two miles to get people the pizza and to let them know that we are here and we’re willing to go that extra,” Brown added. That idea is also what Papa John’s is all about, with Papa the acronym for “People are priority always.” The towns they now deliver to are Rouses Point, Chazy and Mooers — although they are willing to meet people at a predetermined location if they live just outside those limits. They are also considering doing something special for those who live in Ellenburg. “We’d like to eventually maybe have Monday be our Ellenburg night,” Hanson explained, adding a location would be decided upon, and anyone who orders by a certain time can meet there to pick up their order. Papa John’s, located at 1038 U.S. Route 11, can be reached at 298-3865. Orders may also be made on-line by visiting, although currently only those in Champlain can use this method. Brown added they are always accepting applications. “The crew I have in the store, they’ve been amazing. They’ll do anything for me,” he said.

North Countryman - 3

Adirondack Coast unveils Destination Master Plan By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — The Adirondack Coast Visitors and Convention Bureau has big plans for the North Country. During a presentation of the bureau’s new Destination Master Plan at Clinton Community College Dec. 10, members of the general public were given a look at the future of the region as painted by a strategic tourism planning committee comprised of local community leaders. The 25-page document outlines how the North Country can capitalize on its reputation for being a Mecca for outdoor recreation enthusiasts and on its rich history — particularly in its role during the War of 1812. Michele Powers, director of the Adirondack Coast Visitors and Convention Bureau, said its was clearly laid out in discussions with committee members that there hasn’t been enough done to promote the history of the area, especially in regard to being the home of the Battle of Plattsburgh and Battle of Valcour. “We’re going to turn the volume up,” said Powers. The plans calls for an increased and aggressive focus on marketing the area for its historic sites and putting year-round attention on the region during the early 19th cen-

tury. One facet of the plan, is a particularly audacious one, said Powers, but a cornerstone on which tourists can be drawn here. “We are looking at rebuilding the entire British and American fleets from the War of 1812,” said Powers. “This is a big one.” Though the proposal is one that would cost millions of dollars to develop, Powers said the idea is in its infancy and would involve support from many sources. “We are in the early stages of this and a lot of it’s going to take a lot of study and planning,” explained Powers. “We’re applying for a grant that could really help infuse capital into some of these projects and get us off the ground.” However, Powers said the bureau and the planning committee realize grant funding won’t be a reliable source for capital. “We can’t live grant to grant. We know that some of these projects are going to need to be sustainable on their own,” she said. “We have to come up with a business plan to make that happen and bring the right people in.” Powers said she and the planning committee are hoping to expand on the work that is done annually by an “army of volunteers who kill themselves to create a fantastic two to four-day event” each September. “The Battle of Plattsburgh weekend is fantastic. The problem with it is that last word — it’s a weekend,” said Powers, who said a year-round look at history, including en-

campments, guided tours and the like are part of the master plan. Keith Herkalo, president of the Battle of Plattsburgh Association, which oversees the Battle of Plattsburgh Weekend each year, said he welcomes the boldness of the plan. “It’s an American story that needs to be told and the North Country business community is just now waking up to that fact,” said Herkalo, who added tourism could rely heavily on the region’s history. “We’re hopeful that the business community is going to put their shoulders to this moving forward.” Local businessman Steve Carpenter, a member of the planning committee, said he’s on board, knowing how important the plan will be to the region. “This is going to affect the whole county. It’s going to involve everybody,” said Carpenter. “Everyone is going to get rewards from this ... We’re all going to pull together and we’re all going to win at this.” Bob Smith, president of Nine Platt Hospitality Group and also a member of the planning committee, agreed. Smith added the participation from people overseas who have

a vested interest in the history of the region, in the United Kingdom, for example, would also be key to seeing the plan through. “We believe that the community, once they see the plan, the vision, will be ready to invest in it,” said Smith. Powers said the committee’s next move will be to reconvene in January to break out into various committees, with each committee member given an action item on which to follow up.

Getting a new computer Dangers of health care fraud


here may be some new computers under the tree this year. Being tech support for family and friends I wanted to share my personal steps for setting up a new PC. The steps begin at another PC by downloading and saving to a flash drive Avira’s free for personal use antivirus software and Secunia’s Personal Software Inspector ( and When setting up the new PC we leave the network cable, if applicable, disconnected because a few things are done that leave the PC temporarily vulnerable. The computer is booted and we do the initial set up. Without a connection to the Web we cannot activate Windows yet. If asked to connect to a wireless network do not connect yet. Next we go to Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall all the junkware, especially the promotional or trial versions, that shipped with the PC including the antivirus program. (Users that are unsure can wait and uninstall software at a later time.) We install Avi-

ra and then go back to the Control Panel and check the security settings. The system may report the antivirus is out of date, but we know that and it won’t be out of date for long. We now connect the network cable and restart the PC (or just restart the PC and connect to a wireless network). Either way, the Web should now be accessible. By Ron Poland We activate the OS and then go straight to Windows Update for the most current system updates. When that’s done we open Avira, update it and then install Secunia PSI and run it to bring all the third-party software up to date. The final step is to create a system restore point to save the current settings in case we must revert back to it in the future.

Poland is certified in computer repair and networking by the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). He is also a Cisco certified network assistant.

• If your name and address are incorrect, contact bo th the Medicare carrier and Social Security; • “Services Provided” is a brief description of the service or supply, the number of services and service code. Also compare these to your records. Common fraudulent practices are billing for goods and services not provided, billing for old items as new items, billing for patient visits that didn’t take place, billing for more hours than are in a day, concealing ownership of related companies, and falsifying credentials and double-billing. Check any insurance plan you are considering on the plan finder at If you cannot find it, it may not be legitimate. You can also call the Clinton County Office for the Aging at 565-4620 to make an appointment with a health insurance counselor. The Senior Connection is a column provided by the Clinton County Office for the Aging. For more information about services for senior citizens, contact their office at 135 Margaret St., Suite 105, Plattsburgh or call them at 565-4620.

edicare recipients can sign up for or change plans from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31 during the open enrollment period. This period is also when criminals peddle bogus Medicare and Medicare D prescription drug plans. Many try to tempt seniors with offers of services and products that are not actually covered by Medicare. The following are some pointers to avoid Health Care Fraud: • Never give your Medicare or Medicaid number to strangers • Don’t be pressured into getting medical equipment, supplies or health insurance • Ask your physician to recommend medical services and equipment • Don’t let anyone talk you into contacting your physician to request a service or product that you don’t need. • Never give your Medicare or Medicaid number to anyone for a “free” service or piece of equipment. • Remember, if it is free — they don’t need your Medicare or Medicaid number. • Never accept medical supplies or equipment from a door-to-door salesperson. • Never let anyone look at your medical records or prescription medications unless you’ve contacted your physician or pharmacist and gotten their approval. Also, keep track of your appointments and medical services, supplies and equipment. When you receive your Medicare Summary Notice(MSN), check the following: • Your Medicare Number should match the number on your card;

He loves to be petted and wants to be physically close to you. Sweet Pea is a 9-week-old adorable female black kitten. She looks like a little black fur ball when she curls up. She’s a sweetie who is becoming less timid with people. The more Sweet Pea is cuddled, the more comfortable she is with being held.

Helping Light up a Life The Light up a Life Campaign of Giving is fast approaching. During these challenging times I hope that you will remember and think kindly of all of the great work being done by the staff and volunteers of Hospice of the North Country. If you are not familiar with Light up a Life, it is a unique opportunity to remember loved ones who have died by making a contribution that helps to support the vital work being done out of our offices in Plattsburgh and Malone. And please, believe me, there is great work being done, the kind of reaching out and helping that means the end-of-life experience is much more positive for individuals and families. As strange as it may sound, unless you have benefited from Hospice services, our involvement does make a huge difference. There are the practical, tangible things done by the clinical staff. However there is also much more. At a time in our society when it has become easy to be distant and isolated from others, Hospice of the North Country reaches out and touches. We listen, we reassure, we ask the kind of questions that open up dialogue and facilitate communication. Often we open the spigot for discussions that almost miraculously begin flowing between our patient and their families and that is truly wonderful. Hospice of the North Country is a valuable resource in the North Country. Demand for our services continues to grow each year. We are quite proud of our new facility on Tom Miller Road in Plattsburgh that is helping us do an even better job of fulfilling our mission. We are also extremely appreciative of all who helped to make this wonderful, well-designed facility become a reality. We exist because of people such as you. We are here to help. At the same time we need your support and assistance. I am honored to have served as chair of the board of directors of this outstanding organization for the past two years and for the opportunity to be involved with the Light up a Life Campaign of Giving. I hope that you feel we have earned and deserve your philanthropic support. Cynthia Gardner, President Hospice of the North Country Board of Directors

Applying your winter mulch


ow that we have had some consistently cold temperatures, it is time to consider heading out into the garden one last time this year. Now is an ideal time to consider applying a winter mulch. In the spring, we mulch our gardens to suppress weeds, retain moisture, feed the soil, and warm the soil. In the fall we mulch to add a layer or compost that conditions the soil. The primary reason for winter mulching is to protect our plants from the harsh conditions of winter freezes, thaws and winds. If we had snow cover throughout the winter, we would not have to worry about this. Snow is an excellent insulator and regulator. But, we cannot count on snow throughout the winter season. Adding a winter mulch gives our plants a reliable source of winter protection. The main idea behind winter mulching is to keep the ground frozen by shielding it from the warmth of the sun and to insulate the soil against freeze-thaw cycles. A steady temperature will keep the plant in dormancy and prevent it from triggering new growth during a brief warm spell. Tender, new growth too soon will just result in more

winter die back. Mulching now will also help conserve whatever water is in the soil. Adding a winter mulch is simple. Any loose, insulating material will do. Choose a material that is easy to handle and will be easy to remove in the spring. Shredded mulch, straw, pine needles or shredded leaves are all easy to remove or easy to work into the soil. Another easy to use, and environmentally friendly winter mulch is the cut boughs of your Christmas tree. The rule of thumb is to remove winter mulch in the spring, when all danger of a hard frost is past. That’s sometimes very hard to judge here in the North Country, as anyone who’s experienced a May snowstorm can attest. However when the ground starts to thaw and the smell of mud is in the air, it’s time to start raking and removing the mulch so the ground can warm and new growth won’t be inhibited.

Understanding, overcoming a fear of the forest A

lthough a majority of current day civilization has learned to appreciate the benefits of nature and the natural world, it wasn’t always the case. From the earliest of times, societies have sought protection from the dangers of the natural world through the telling of tales and legends that were intended to ingrain children with a basic fear of the woods. From Goldie Locks to Little Red Riding Hood to Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman and continuing through such movies as Deliverance, the Blair Witch Project and The Village, mankind has conditioned children to fear the woods throughout the centuries. Admittedly, the woods can be a mysterious and foreboding place and at times, it is only natural to fear what we hear but can’t see, especially at night. However, our greatest fears are the noises that come from creatures unknown. Often, these are the creatures that rest comfortably in our collective imagination. In our mind’s eye, the forest conceals a host of wild animals, witches, demons, and a host of serial killers that lurk in the darkness, awaiting the innocent. This process plays on fears that already exist in most of us, it is also known as the boogieman complex. Increasingly, American parents have grown afraid of letting their children to play in the yard, bicycle to school or hike in the woods, even though such irrational fears are not supported by the evidence or statistics. For many, the woods are a wild place that is unbound by man-made rules or codes. Sadly, many people live in fear of these wild and un-

tamed elements. The forest can conceal a variety of threats, both actual and imagined. Although it is a place where a man or child can become lost, never be found again, such incidents are a rarity. An unfounded fear of the forest is known as hylophobia and it affects far more people than most of us would ever expect. Nyctohylophobia is the much more common fear and foreboding of journeying in the woods at night. It is a sense that you are not alone and it is a fear that can be debilitating for some. It is an affliction that extends far beyond the typical shivers and goose bumps that are expected after an evening of ghost stories around the campfire. It is understandable that we have a greater fear of the unknown, than of the things that are known to us. An overzealous imagination can create monsters far beyond any known to exist in the natural world, and as society continues to spiral into the depths of natural detachment; it is easy to understand the growing fear of the woods. We fear most, the things we least understand. While hylophobia is largely an unfounded fear, there are at least a few psychological afflictions with a rational basis in the Great North Woods. These maladies would have to include Agrizoophobia, a fear of wild animals and Entomophobia, a fear of insects. Anyone spending time in the Adirondacks during black fly season could easily justify becoming an Entomophobiac. Likewise, many local residents surely suffer from Chionophobia, at some point in their life. Around

these parts, Chionophobia, an intense fear of snow is an understated reality, at almost anytime of the year.

Time in the woods better for the classroom Despite concerns over a growing fear of the woods, a recent study conducted for the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies offers ample evidence to alleviate such apprehensions. Researchers funded through a Multistate Conservation Grant of the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program, uncovered a wide range of benefits that can be attributed to spending time in the open air and learning outside. The study suggests “a meaningful engagement with nature as a child has a direct correlation with involvement in environmental issues in the future, which should be of great interest as communities look for the next generation of environmental leaders.” Additional research reveals that “people who participate in outdoor activities tend to be happier than those who do not and that active living may lead to a healthier lifestyle, based on the Leisure Trends Index” while “spending time in the open air and learning outside has also proven to increase students’ ability to think creatively and improve problem-solving skills.” The study also found that “students who play and learn in outdoor settings perform better on tests, have higher grade point averages (GPAs), cause fewer classroom disruptions”. It also found considerable evidence that “outdoor adventure programs can impact positively on young people’s attitudes, beliefs and self-perceptions.” In general, the research indicates that among the benefits of outdoor education is an increase in selfconcept domains such as independence, confidence,

self-efficacy, and self-understanding. Additional benefits include “enhanced psychological well-being; an increased ability to overcome challenges; a positive impact on leadership competencies; enhanced decision-making skills, general problem solving competencies, academic achievement and academic self-concept. “ Time spent outdoors also resulted in “an increase in personality dimensions such as assertiveness, emotional stability, achievement motivation, internal focus of control, and maturity and reductions in aggression and neurosis. It was also shown to improve mental strength and interpersonal dimensions such as social competence, co-operation and interpersonal communication skills.” Regarding aspects of health, learning, and lifestyle, the study indicates that outdoor skills programs help to promote lifelong physical, emotional and spiritual well being. According to the report, “a growing body of studies suggests that contact with nature is as important to children as good nutrition and adequate sleep: time spent outdoors correlates with increased physical activity and fitness in children; exposure to green space reduces crime, increases general wellbeing and the ability to focus; children as young as five have shown a significant reduction in the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) when they are engaged in outdoor activities in natural settings.” The positive benefits that the research reveals should offer ample evidence for students, and faculty to address professed fears of the forest.

Understanding alcohol abuse and dependence T

he holidays can be a time of joy but for some, it can be a time of despair and depression. Those feelings can also be ones that plague a person throughout the year and can be linked to alcoholism. Though the general public might not know the specifics, few men and women would be surprised to learn alcohol abuse and depression are often linked. However, it does remain a mystery to many people just why some individuals can have one or two drinks and not be dependent, while others must avoid alcohol entirely. To better understand why that is, it helps to understand what alcoholism is.

What is alcohol abuse? Alcohol abuse refers to having unhealthy or potentially dangerous drinking habits. Those habits can include daily alcohol consumption or overconsumption of alcohol. Someone who abuses alcohol will continue to do so despite knowing their behavior is causing some problems in their life, be it relationship problems, problems at work, legal problems, or problems with friends and family members. Men, women or even children who abuse alcohol are at risk of growing dependent. When a person is dependent on alcohol, that person is considered to be an alcoholic. The strong need or craving to drink is there, and an alcoholic will feel as if they need to drink to get through the day.

Is alcoholism hereditary? In a report from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, research indicated the familial transmission of alcoholism is at least in part genetic and not just the result of environment. Research is ongoing to determine just what it is that a person inherits that increases their vulnerability to alcoholism and how those inherited factors team with environment, but past research has indicated that a person’s susceptibility to alcoholism is at least partially genetic.

What indicates alcohol dependence? A common misconception is that men and women who aren’t falling over while intoxicated or blacking out when they drink cannot be alcoholics. In fact, alcohol dependence can manifest itself in ways that don’t involve a person exhibiting any of that behavior. Men and women who have three or more of the following problems in a year might be dependent on alcohol. • The need to drink more to get the same effect. • An inability to quit drinking or control how alcohol consumption. • The appearance of withdrawal symptoms, or delirium tremens (DTs), when they stop drinking. The DTs may include hallucinations, confusion, irritability, trembling, and seizures. • Previous unsuccessful attempts to quit drinking.

What warning signs might indicate a problem? Certain warning signs also might indicate a sign of a growing problem with alcohol. Those signs include, but are not limited to, the following: • Feelings of guilt after drink. • Making excuses to drink or attempting to hide how much you drinking. • Blackouts, or not remembering what you did while you were drinking. • Drinking in the morning, drinking alone or binge drinking.

How are alcohol problems diagnosed? Adults who have visited a doctor for a physical or even another routine checkup likely recall their doctor asking about

their alcohol consumption. Doctors will inquire about the number of drinks consumed in a typical week, including how many might be downed in an average night. Any answers that raise the doctor ’s suspicions might result in a physical exam or a mental health assessment. The mental health assessment will be conducted to determine if depression has begun to settle in. The physical examination will look for the physical symptoms, including cirrhosis, a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when the inflammation and scarring have damaged the liver.

What if a problem is diagnosed? If the doctor does determine there’s at least a problem with alcohol if not alcoholism, the doctor might recommend cutting back on alcohol consumption. Should the doctor diagnose alcoholism, treatment will be recommended. That treatment may include detoxification, which flushes alcohol out of the body. This can cause withdrawal symptoms that could very well prove quite painful. Group counseling, including Alcoholics Anonymous, has proven highly effective for millions of people who have suffered from alcoholism. Men, women or children who feel they have an alcohol problem should seek help immediately.

Taking a look at December’s workout of the month T he holidays are here, and life seems to be just a little bit crazier than usual. Are you find-

ing the holiday shopping, baking, and engagements are cutting into your exercise time? Don’t be a statistic and fall into the group of people who tend to pack on the holiday

pounds. Between all the shopping and wrapping presents I’m sure a lot of people find reasons (or excuses!) not to exercise.

Students getting hands-on look at world of journalism Peru High School class unveils ‘The Pride’ newsletter By Jeremiah S. Papineau PERU — Students from Julia Miller ’s journalism class are getting a glimpse of what it’s like to publish a newspaper. This school year, the Peru High School class has begun producing The Pride, a monthly online newsletter following the happenings in and around the Peru Central School District. “The kids were really nervous in the very first couple weeks,” said Miller. “Then, once they saw they were able to write about things they’re interested in and that somebody was going to see it, that’s when it really took off.” The focus of the class has been to introduce students to the world of journalism, acclimating them with writing news stories, covering photo assignments, proofreading copy, and — above all — meeting deadlines. “This class give them a hands-on kind of approach to what they need to be able to do outside of school,” said Miller. “Deadlines, especially, are incredibly important and they understand that. It’s starting to carry over to their other subjects, too. That’s what I’m glad to see.” The class most recently published its second newsletter, with Miller starting to see the students gain momentum in their grasp of reporting on education, sports and lifestyle topics and production of the overall newsletter. “With the first issue, we had tons of lead time,” said Miller, referring to the first newsletter published in November. “This

D&D Meats From page 1 Most of the roofs are done.” Dutil said she plans to have the store up and running by mid-March. Although, it won’t look the same as it did prior to the fire. “It’s going to look totally different,” she said. “It’s going to be all Adirondack decor. We’re going to have a different kind of pizza oven than we had. It’s going to be a lot different.” The store’s siding will also match the Dutil’s home, which is connected to the store. Although Dutil admits the store didn’t look too bad from the outside, it was in fact “totaled.” “The back of the store is completely gone and everything in the store had to be completely gutted,” she said. They also lost two apartments, but with the renovations will be able to add a third. Their house, which suffered about $36,000 in smoke damage, is also coming along. “Everything had to be repainted and recarpeted,” said Dutil. “A lot of clothing and stuff and things like that we just had to throw out. You can wash them so many times, but it still doesn’t come out.” Despite the losses, the Dutils are still out

time, there was a three-week deadline for them, which took getting used to. They had to understand the importance of meeting deadlines but also that they didn’t want to put out a product that wasn’t as good as the last one.” What impresses Miller most is how students have been stepping up to the plate when called upon, she said. “What’s really impressive to me is the leadership roles they’re willing to take, that they volunteer for,” said Miller. “They all want to be in charge of something. It’s great to see.” and about in the community. Most recently, they provided Mooers Elementary School with an Exxon Mobil Grant of $750. “Being my home school and my children’s home school, that’s why we chose it,” said Dutil. “And I grew up in the village of Mooers. In fact, my best friend’s dad was our principal.” Dennis Rasco, principal at Mooers Elementary, said he appreciates the support D & D Meats has always provided the school. “For them to pursue the completion of this grant application, in light of the fact that they recently had a fire, I think is just amazing,” he said. The grant will be used to support early literacy efforts. On June 18, the store will celebrate 30 years in business with their Community Day, which will also serve as the grand reopening of the store. They also are still providing their Jeezum Crow Beef Jerky, which they often send to troops overseas. With everything on the right track for the store’s completion, Dutil said the only thing insurance didn’t cover was some of the equipment in the store, which they are looking to the community for help with. “We had a lot of expensive equipment,” said Dutil. “Now we’re on the hunt for a lot of second-hand equipment because there’s

Sophomore Erika Diskin, who serves as general editor for The Pride, said the class had been an eye-opener for her, providing a good first look at the career field into which she one day hopes to go. “I really want to be a writer, hopefully for a magazine or a newspaper,” said Diskin. “And, I think the thing that’s been helpful to me most is how to write news ledes because the ledes are what hook the reader. Knowing things like that help because if I do get a job in journalism, I won’t go into it not knowing

what to do. I’ll have some experience.” “I came into the class not really knowing much about journalism and just started to really get into it in the first week,” said sophomore Noah Phillips, the paper ’s associate editor. “I just like the challenges of making the school newspaper. Everyone works well together and we’re pretty happy doing it.” Though Diskin’s and Phillips’ passions lie with writing and editing, other students like sophomore Claira Knighton have found their interest to be in the actual production of the paper. “I love making layouts. I’m an addict with graphic design,” said Knighton. “Anything that has to do with Photoshop or drawing or painting — stuff like that — is just my thing.” Though Knighton admitted she wasn’t giving a career in journalism a serious thought before taking Miller ’s class, she said she’ll now be taking it into consideration when applying for college in a couple years. “It’s got me thinking,” she said. Sophomore Brianna Pena said the class has also increased her interest in pursuing journalism after high school. “Now, I know what to expect when I go to college and I’ll at least have something under my belt when I decide to go into journalism in the future,” she said. adding she’s enjoyed interviewing people most of all. “I’m actually talking to people I might never have talked to before and it’s because of journalism.” (Editor’s Note: The Pride may be viewed on-line by visiting, following the link to the Peru High School page and clicking on the corresponding link for the on-line newsletter.)

no way we’re going to be able to replace that amount of equipment.” Some of the equipment includes dehydrators for the beef jerky, a sausage stuffer, cash register, patty machine, pizza oven and fryer. “We have located some, but we’re still in

the search. We probably have maybe a third of what we need,” she said. “We still have a long way to go on the equipment. You’re not going to find it all overnight.” If able to help D & D Meats recover some of the equipment, contact Dutil at 493-2300.

The club, which meets every Thursday, has been hosting the party for the last five or six years according to member Cathy Coty. Coty said she joined the group because, “I was kind of bored, but not anymore!” The party, which will be held at the Rainbow Wedding and Banquet Hall’s Gold Room, will feature music by the country western group Back Roads Band, who also

I think because they think it’s called ‘senior club’ it’s just for older people, but it’s not.” This year ’s party will feature prime rib of stuffed chicken breast for dinner, at a cost of $20. There will also be raffles, including a 50/50. “What we do is we raise money to buy stuff for our club,” said Coty. “Equipment

Laurentian multi-million dollar project moves forward By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Laurentian Aerospace Corporation has secured funding it needs to take the next step in establishing a presence in the town of Plattsburgh. Andrew Edwards, chief financial officer and senior vice president of finance for Laurentian, announced Verdant Capital Group LLC will invest, alongside the management group, the capital required to allow Laurentian to begin an estimated $175 million project to construct a state-of-the-art maintenance repair and overhaul facility for wide-body aircraft at the Plattsburgh International Airport. “We could not be happier with the partnership that we struck with Verdant,” said Edwards. “They share our vision of making this a world-class facility.

The securing of financing is considered the next step in the process for Laurentian locating a facility in the town, said Edwards, which has been a process that dates back to 2006. The closing of the financing is subject to a number of conditions, said Edwards, including “Verdant’s completion of final due diligence, the execution of definitive agreements and the absence of any material adverse change in the financial markets.” However, Edwards said Verdant and Laurentian are “confident” the transaction will be successfully completed on or before March 1, with construction of a single hangar facility expected to begin in April. Construction would take approximately 18 months after necessary engineering work is completed, said Andrews. The new facility is expected to employ approximately 900 people within the first two

years after construction is completed, said Andrews. The highest paid employees would likely be Federal Aviation Administration-certified mechanics, he added, who could earn somewhere between $75,000 and $80,000. Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, applauded the efforts of all involved for getting Laurentian to this milestone. “If there’s an event that’s going to change the face of Plattsburgh, it is this event,” said Owens. “I’m happy for Laurentian, but, in truth, I’m most happy for Plattsburgh.” Edwards said he is enthusiastic about the progress made so far, but will celebrate when closing on the project’s financing is finalized in March. “The time for major kudos to all of the people who are involved will be at the closing dinner,” said Edwards. “I’ve got to tell you, after four years, it’s going to be some doozy when we get there.”

I saw Lorrie painting Santa Claus Local artist gets kick out of painting Father Christmas on just about anything By Jeremiah S. Papineau KEESEVILLE — Lorrie Mandigo likes drawing Santa Clauses. So much, in fact, she’s developed quite the pastime out of it. Mandigo has been hand-painting likenesses of the jolly, old elf for the last four years, making use of whatever canvas she can — no matter how unconventional it may be. “I’ve painted Santas on old medicine bottles, flat irons, ironing boards, silverware, light bulbs,” said Mandigo. “I’ve painted on all different kinds of surfaces.” What Mandigo likes most about painting on the not-sonormal canvases is how her artwork provides new life to items that could otherwise find their way into the landfill. “I really like to paint on things that are recycled or found or that would be thrown away otherwise,” she said. However, Mandigo’s favorite piece to transform is one that naturally take the shape of the ideal Kris Kringle. “I love to paint on gourds. They’re just fat and they look like Santas,” she said. When Mandigo moved to the North Country earlier this year from eastern Texas, she brought with her a harvest of

more than 1,000 gourds she had grown in her garden, giving her an ample supply of future Santas to create. “Gourds grow pretty well in Texas,” she said, laughing. Mandigo also prefers cypress knees for her artwork —

roots of cypress trees that are native to the swamps of Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi. “They’re the actual roots of the tree but they grow up in a very cone-like shape,” she explained. “I discovered them when I was living on the state line of Texas and Louisiana. Tree farmers cut them down and crafters can harvest them and boil their bark off to work with them. They’re really lovely.” Most recently, Mandigo’s sister, who works at the Northwoods School in Lake Placid, encouraged her to paint on hockey pucks, getting the idea from the school’s reputation for being associated with the sport. “So, that’s the latest,” said Mandigo, laughing. “I’d still have to say my favorites are my gourds, though. Especially the ones I’ve grown myself.” Though Mandigo is also an accomplished artist when it comes to painting murals and other works, painting Santa Clauses is her true passion. “It’s the only thing that kind of bubbles out of me naturally,” she said. “I just appreciate the season. And, maybe it’s because my father makes the perfect Santa Claus when he grows out his beard. Santa is just the symbol of happiness, family and being jolly. Everyone loves Santa.” Mandigo’s complete works may be viewed and purchased on-line at ON THE COVER: Artist Lorrie Mandigo holds a Santa Claus painted on a gourd. Gourds are Mandigo’s favorite medium on which to paint the jolly, old elf.

Associate dean honored at unveiling ceremony By Anayely Garcia PLATTSBURGH — Dr. Edward J. Miller ’s portrait now joins the likes of other distinguished members of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh in an adorned wall in Feinberg Library. The chemistry professor and associate dean of arts and sciences was honored in Feinberg Library Dec. 3, in a room full of students, fellow faculty members and wife Rosemary, daughter Sarah and son-in-law Jason. President Dr. John C. Ettling, who presided over the ceremony, commended Miller for his 26 years of servitude to the campus. He added the award holds the highest honor in the SUNY system and the highest it can confer upon a faculty member — the rank of a distinguished professor. “Ed, I want to congratulate you personally and to thank you on behalf of those present and those who were unable to be with us … for all of your service to this college, to the alumnae, to the community and especially, of course, to the students,” said Ettling. “You represent the best we have.” The ceremony also included comments from provost/vice president for academic affairs Dr. Patricia J. Higgins, who has worked with Miller for numerous years. Higgins added she knew Miller when he had a leadership role within the faculty senate, a role he assumed very early in his career. Higgins also worked close with Miller in various administrative positions he assumed on campus over the years. “We are very proud of Ed and honored by having him on campus with us,” said Higgins. “On behalf of myself and all academic affairs, congratulations.” “We have gathered to celebrate the achievement of a distin-

guished member of our college and by extension, the honor bestowed upon our proud college,” said professor of communications and presiding officer of the faculty Dr. Jin Kim. “Dr. Miller ’s record of service in the areas of faculty governance, strategic planning, curriculum development and student life issues has long been recognized on this campus,” said Kim. “His long and devoted service — both in the local university faculty campus senate are exemplary.” Kim concluded the faculty as a whole is greatly thankful for

Miller having embodied qualities such as academic excellence, integrity, intellectual honesty and human decency. Fellow distinguished teaching professor Dr. David A. Franzi mentioned he has known Miller for about 25 years and credited Miller for his extensive work in curricular planning, having prepared more than 20 courses for the campus. Franzi also added Miller takes great pride in his heavy involvement with the students. “We should all take pride in his accomplishments and be thankful for his many contributions,” concluded Franzi. Albert N. Mihalek, executive assistant to dean of arts and science, opened his remarks with a few jokes. He added Miller could be summed up with one word — honest. “I have worked next door to his office for many years and you get the sense of how a person feels about students and the way they want to deal with those people in listening to them and seeing them day-to-day and [the way he] deals with students who come in to the dean’s office who have problems,” said Mihalek. “I’ve never seen a more caring person … he’s absolutely loved.” Miller thanked everyone who attended the ceremony, people who put the ceremony together and his family. “The last five years have been the best of my career; I’ve just had a great time teaching and working with students and various situations,” said Miller. The distinguished service professorship is given to “faculty who have achieved a distinguished reputation for service not only to the campus and the university, but also to the community, the state of New York or even the nation, by sustained effort in the application of intellectual skills drawing from the candidate’s scholarly and research interests to issues of public concern.”
