ARC aids local food shelves
By Shaun Kittle
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ The Clinton County chapter of the Advocacy and Resource Center recognized Disability Awareness Month by giving back to the community. The not-for-profit organization collected more than 3,000 pounds of food in March using more than 35 food collection boxes set up at local businesses around the region. All of the food will be divvied between the Interfaith Food Shelf and the Joint Council for Economic OpportunityÕ s food bank on Thursday, April 11. It is the second consecutive year the ARC has collected food for local food shelves. They also accepted monetary donations. Ò The bottom line is that a not-for-profit is always seeking support,Ó said Kathleen CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Making music for conservation

Clarinets for Conservation teaches students in Tanzania about music, their local ecosystems, and also helps them plant trees. Michele Von Haugg, founder and director of Clarinets for Conservation, will perform at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 17.
PLATTSBURGH Ñ Sometimes, music speaks louder than words. When Michele Von Haugg established Clarinets for Conservation in 2010, it was the idea of letting her clarinet be her voice that was partly responsible. The rest of that responsibility lies in her childhood. Ò I spent a lot of time in the woods, really just being, in a natural environment,Ó said Von Haugg, founder and director of Clarinets for Conservation. When Von Haugg wasnÕ t busy being in the woods surrounding her childhood home in East Berne, New York, she was reading books about nature and conservation, and found the work of primatologist Jane Goodall to be particularly inspiring. Upon entering college, she shifted gears and decided to chase music. After obtaining her BachelorÕ s Degree in Music Education at Ithaca College, Von Haugg entered the Air Force, where she played clarinet in the Air Force Band of Liberty for ten years. And then her past caught up to her present when she saw the

Opinion North Countryman Editorial
The media: public watchdogs
hough many people read newspapers, not many people really think of what it means to be a journalist. Just in the same way people might not understand what a police officer or a doctor goes through on a daily basis itÕ s hard to imagine what a journalist goes through if you have never been in their shoes. As most reporters probably agree, they more often hear from the public when their work is disliked than hear from the silent majority who enjoyed their work. Like many professions it is a job that comes with a price. Not only does it include long, varying hours, the job can also can mean gagorders to work around. At the same time, reporters around the world are injured, in some cases kidnapped, killed and jailed for doing their job. In the midst of the trial of the Aurora Colorado theater shooter, James Holmes, which has the attention of the nation, a smaller case is being launched against a reporter who covered the shooting. The secondary trial is against a female reporter who is not being accused of any crime. New York-based Fox News reporter Jana Winters is being called upon by Colorado justices to reveal the names of confidential sources that released information that showed the accused mass-murderer had eluded to his psychiatrist at the University of Colorado that he was going to commit the crime. Winters could face up to six months in jail for not revealing the names of confidential sources which divulged information that Holmes sent a package to the psychiatrist that included a notebook Ò full of details about how he was going to kill people,Ó prior to the July 20 shooting, according to a source of WinterÕ s July 25 article. The FoxNews.com article also reported the notebook contained illustrations of a massacre, including drawings of gun-wielding stick figures shooting other stick figures. The court believes it is information that could only have come from law enforcement or investigators in the case that were under orders not to talk about the drawings. HolmesÕ attorney claimed the leak compromised his clientÕ s ability to have a fair trial, though Holmes was ready to plead guilty to the crime if prosecutors promised to not go for the death penalty.
Winters is accused only of protecting the identity of confidential news sources while reporting an important development in a major national story. This information was then picked up by other media and became known to people across the country who were hungry to learn more about Holmes. Though the officers or whomever gave the information to Winters went against the orders of their profession or office to give the reporter this information, it is WinterÕ s responsibility as a journalist to remain faithful to the commitment she gave to keep their identity a secret. For members of the press integrity is easily lost by any one story or bad information given. If Winters had fabricated the information her job would undoubtably be taken away and she would have no future in media. Furthermore, the reporter is protected under Shield Laws, which are in place in 40 states, including New York and Colorado. Shield Laws are designed to protect reportersÕ privilege, or the right of news reporters to refuse to testify to information and/or sources of information obtained during the news gathering and dissemination process. As of Monday, April 8, a Colorado order for Winters to return to the state to sit before the grand jury was still in effect. A judge in New York has signed off on the order though Winters’ attorney is fighting it. As you sit here reading this, there are 60 countries involved in a some kind of active war around the world. Journalists risk their lives to be there and report the conflicts, so the rest of the world is made aware of the atrocities taking place. As of December 2012 the Committee to protect Journalists (CPJ) reported a record number of incarcerated journalists worldwide at 232. The CPJ also reported 70 cases of journalists killed in the line of duty worldwide in 2012. The media is a watchdog, an advocate, and a voice for the people. The case against Winters is one of many where a reporter must choose between their personal freedoms or protecting their journalistic integrity. Winters is saying she will choose the latter if need be. And she should be lauded for it. Ñ

There are two sides to the border To the North Countryman: The article Ò CanadaÕ s border policy should be revisitedÓ was very interesting and informative. It also made me think about the visitorÕ s going from Canada to the US. I was surprised that you didnÕ t talk about the rules and restrictions that are imposed on Canadians who want to visit our neighbours. You are automatically prohibited crossing the border if you have been convicted of any crime, including DUI, no matter if it happened 30 years ago. One of the questions frequently asked by the US immigration officers is “Have you ever been arrested?” Just the fact that you were arrested and not even charged or convicted may be enough not to allow you to cross the border. You may try to get a pardon, but someone I know who was stopped once because he was arrested for smoking a joint 25 years earlier, looked into it but the $5,000 cost for lawyers and bureaucratic nightmares wasnÕ t worth it. And by the way, prior to this one trip to Plattsburgh he crossed the border on a regular basis without any problems, which make me wonder how thorough the agents are. Once I was travelling by bus to New York City and when we went through the Immigration at Champlain, there was an old

Letters to the Editor Haitian lady who went to visit her family there. She could hardly speak English and the officer was giving her a hard time in a loud and aggressive manner saying that if she wonÕ t speak to him in English he doesnÕ t have to let her in the US. The poor lady was shaking and almost crying. I couldnÕ t believe the bullying he was displaying toward that lady. It would be a great idea if both sides of the border could get together and figure out some ways to use “common sense “ is some situations, but I wonÕ t hold my breath. Milo Stepan Montreal
Mayor’s effort commendable To the North Countryman: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on March 18 that he is sending legislation to the City Council that would ban stores from being able to openly display tobacco products. This is not the first law to be put forward on this initiative. In April 2012, the Village of Haverstraw in Rockland County, passed the first law in the United States that would regulate
tobacco displays in retail stores. Unfortunately, seven tobacco manufacturers and the New York Association of Convenience Stores fought the display regulations and filed a federal lawsuit against Haverstraw. To avoid the risk of incurring hefty legal fees to fight the lawsuit, the village rescinded the law. As Mayor Bloomberg points out, the tobacco companies are targeting youth with their packaging and displays and they have been very successful in doing so. Ninety percent of current adult smokers started smoking at or before the age of 18 and ninetynine percent by the age of 26. Research shows that kids who shop at stores with tobacco marketing two or more times a week are 64 percent more likely to start smoking than their peers who donÕ t. There may be other factors that contribute to youth smoking, but marketing has a direct link, and itÕ s something our communities can do something about! We congratulate Mayor Bloomberg on his forward thinking and desire to protect our youth. The initial reaction will undoubtedly be similar to smoking bans in restaurants and bars. These policies have been shown significant negative impacts on those businesses. lt has become the norm now and in time, we are hoping that display bans and not smoking where our children can be exposed to it, will also become the norm.

Biggest Loser marathon will come to Plattsburgh By Katherine Clark
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH Ñ Fans of the nationally syndicated show Ò The Biggest LoserÓ are asked to put their loyalty to the test, get off the couch and participate when the Biggest Loser Fun Run and Walk comes to Plattsburgh in June. The announcement was made on March 28 by Biggest Loser Director of New Business Development Jewel Parelman, Mayor Donald Kasprazak, PlattsburghÕ s Superintendent of Recreation Steve Peters, and two very special guests, contestants of the show fifth season, the mother-son duo Dan and Jackie Evans. The Biggest Loser Run/Walk competition is set for June 9. Plattsburgh is one of 15 destination marathons around the country that features both a half-marathon and 5-kilometer race for adults and a 1-mile kids fun run. Ò We choose places based on interest because we want to host this marathon in a place where people in the community will be excited and want to participate,Ó said Parelman. Ò Participants have already signed up to come here from 18 different states.Ó The training is designed to host athletes of all levels. Participants can walk, run, or both. Jackie and Dan lost a combined weight of 225 pounds Ñ Dan lost 136 pounds and Jackie lost 89 pounds. When they came home from training, Jackie said they both gained weight. Ò When you are on the show, you are working out for eight to 10 hours a day, when I came home I went back to work and it felt grueling to get on the Elliptical machine and workout,Ó said Jackie. Almost a year after the show ended she was asked to participate in a marathon for charity. Through training and the run itself she said the sport became a social experience that she and Dan looked forward to. She ran 11 half-marathons in 2011, and Dan ran 14. Though she enjoys the marathons and training, Jackie said she has never tried to beat her best time or be competitive. She said she sees the marathons as a chance to continue training and keeping up with her goals to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Ò I can promise you two things, I can promise I will cross the start and finish line in the same day and I swear I will be faster than everyone who didnÕ t get out of bed that morning,Ó Jackie said.
Races for all
The Get Fit, Get Ready race is a series of 5k/10k/15kÕ s that is designed to get athletes fit. It can also serve as a catalyst to get athletes ready for their next race. This series can act as a stepping-stone to a longer, more challenging race or just an enjoyable
experience shared with friends and family. “Whether it is your first half marathon or you want to hit your next PR (personal record), this series serves as a fun and rewarding race worthy of traveling to,Ó said Parelman. Every participant will receive a medal or Ò blingÓ to show their accomplishments, a Biggest Loser tshirt, and a goodie bag. Awards for runners and walkers are presented to the first, second and third place in their age group for every five years in male and female categories. The overall first, second and third male and female also receive a special award. The Plattsburgh marathons will start and end at City Hall. Viewers who station themselves at that location will see runners five times during the half-marathon Peters said. The oval will also host vendors, nutrition education, fun activities like yoga and zumba. Peters said family members and cheerleaders will have a great time as well as encouraging their runner. Both courses feature stretches along the lake. A course map can be seen at www.biggestloserrunwalk.com.
once you choose to start you have to evaluate eating habits and exercise and you have to keep it to get there.Ó
Run to Plattsburgh
Members of the Plattsburgh city gym health club modeled after the Biggest Loser were thrilled to share with the Evans their stories too. The participants will also be joining with the marathon. Ò IÕ m so proud of the fact that everyone here is going to be back for this event,Ó said Kasprazak. During the presentation they shouted the number of pounds they lost through the local program. Numbers as high as 55, 38, and 45 were shouted. Altona resident, Nicole Bruno shared her success story with the Evans duo about how she lost over 110 pounds since beginning the program. Ò I joined the Biggest Loser group and I lost 71 pounds in the program and I learned alot about how exercise and good nutrition are so important,Ó said Bruno. Bruno said through the program she has learned a lot about what she is capable of. Ò In order to be healthy you are going to have to exercise,Ó said Bruno. Ò When I started the program I couldnÕ t run this room, now IÕ m running marathons. Bruno said her two sons, age 15 and 5 were her inspiration. Her older son even runs some marathons with her. BrunoÕ s sister, Lisa McDonald, was so inspired by her sister she joined a similar program in Champlain and lost 80 pounds. “I would definitely tell anyone thinking about joining this program that they can do it,Ó said Bruno. Ò ItÕ s one day at a time, it’s not a quick fix,
Biggest Loser season five contestants Dan and Jackie Evans spent time with members of the Plattsburgh group to hear weightloss success stories.
Past events have brought large crowds Parelman said. “It has huge benefits, it kind of covers a few things for one local residents get to come out and itÕ s an event where they can take part in the outdoor recreation we have to offer and also showcase our beautiful location our beautiful city to visitors that
might not think a marathon or a 5k or a 10 k is possible here,Ó said Christy Kennedy with the Adirondack Cost Visitors bureau in the North Country Chamber of Commerce. Ò IÕ m very excited on multiple levels.Ó

Plans to expand the Saranac River Trail under way By Shaun Kittle
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH Ñ Spring is on its way, and so are projects to expand the Saranac River Trail. After about six years of planning, phase one of the river trail was completed last year and culminated in the official opening of the trail last year on May 21. The now-completed first stretch is a paved, riverside path that runs from George Angell Drive near Plattsburgh High School to the Saranac Street Bridge. At a recent Saranac River Trail Committee meeting, future plans for the trail were discussed, with the proposed Max Moore Memorial Treehouse being one of the main talking points. Once completed, the universally accessible treehouse will be located near Pine Street and Plattsburgh, and will be accessible to people of all ages and abilities. But adding public amenities isnÕ t cheap. The treehouse alone will cost between $50,000 to $100,000 Ashley Cousens, who organizes fundraising for the Saranac River Trail Committee and is the Coordinator of Community and Workforce Development at Clinton Community College, said the cost will ultimately be determined by how much help they receive from volunteers, who much be skilled laborers to participate in the building process. To raise money for the project, Cousens announced some events that are slated to take place this summer. On Saturday, May 11, the Treehouse 10K and 5K Run/ Walk will be held on the Saranac River Trail. People can sign up to participate in the event, which coasts $25 for the 10K race and $20 for the 5K race. Cousens also has another Tiki Torch Zumbathon in the works, to tentatively be held at Plattsburgh City Beach on June 15. All of the funds raised form these events will go toward the treehouse.
Saranac River Trail Greenway During the Saranac River Trail meeting, James Bosley, Planning Technician for the Clinton County Planning Office, talked about plans to extend the river trail. Bosley is a member of the Saranac River Trail Greenway, a group that strives to extend the river trail to the town of Saranac, and possibly beyond. Ò The momentum that you have started has grown,Ó Bosley said. Saranac River Trail Greenway is currently in the process of

becoming a not-for-profit organization, which will allow it to accept donations, tax free. In the future, the two river trail committees could join forces. Under that scenario, donors could donate money to the Saranac River Trail Greenway, and have options for how that money is spent. The donation could go into a general fund that would be used for any work that needs to be done on the trail, while other donations could be earmarked for specific projects, like the treehouse. Currently, donations to the Saranac River Trail can be made through the United Way of the Adirondack Region, located at 45 Tom Miller Road in Plattsburgh. Checks sent there should be made out to Ò Treehouse Project c/o United Way.Ó For more information on the Treehouse 10K and 5K Run/Walk, visit plattsburghrecreation.com

Wear denim to support victims of sexual assault By Katherine Clark
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Officials of Planned Parenthood are asking people to wear denim April 29 in protest of a 1999 Italian Supreme Court ruling that overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans. Denim Day is a rape prevention education campaign, where community members, elected officials, businesses and students are asked to make a social statement with their fashion statement and wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault. Denim Day was established after an Italian Supreme Court ruling overturned a rape conviction because the woman was wearing jeans when she was raped. The courtÕ s reasoning rested on the belief that it would have been impossible for the attacker to remove the jeans by himself, so the victim must have facilitated her own assault. Ò ItÕ s really hard to imagine this is a real case and that things like this do happen in rape cases,Ó said Sandra Esposito, Platts-
Individuals and groups can declare April 29 Denim Day at their business or organization. If that day doesnÕ t work, employers are asked to choose one that does. Esposito said Denim Day is celebrated on different days in April for different groups. Ò The 29th just worked for us but people donÕ t need to celebrate it on this specific day, the message is still the same no matter the day,Ó said Esposito Anyone interested in participating can call the Sexual Assault Services. Planned Parenthood will provide posters to hang in of-

The little video that could...fix a road
A handsome heritage strain brook trout from Horn Lake is readied for release back to the water, in order to fight another day. Note the usual white outline on all of the fins, including the dorsal .
his coming weekend, IÕ ll be heading back down to Newcomb to attend the final offering in the “Got Game” lecture series. If the snow holds up, I may attempt to squeeze in one last ski trip of the season. However, if the weather turns warmer, I may just trade in my ski poles, and grab a fishing pole. There is still over a foot of ice on the ponds, and a dense snowpack in the hills, but it will all melt off quickly with a few sunny days, some heavy rains and a stiff wind. For those that must fish, many local lakes and pond are already showing plenty of open water around the inlets and outlets. AprilÕ s Full Moon, which is scheduled to arrive on the 25th, will prompt the annual smelt run. Even if the ice remains in command of the lakes and ponds, anglers will find opportunities around inlets and feeder streams as smelt and later suckers return to spawn in the streams. Currently Newcombites, Minervaphiles and Long Lakers are all celebrating the success of the locally produced video production that recently went viral, and well beyond the town limits. Eventually the video, which featured a serious spoof of the delapadated condition of the local highway infrastructure, made it all the way down the line to the not-so-hallowed halls of the government chambers in Albany. Although nearly 69,000 acres of local state land may soon be opening to the public, it appeared to many that State Route 28N was going to retain the title as: Ò The wildest ride in town.Ó But then came the video. Upon its arrival, politicians of all sorts took notice, and soon there were promises of an extensive and expensive project to complete a major refurbishment of Route 28N from Minerva to Long Lake. Readers can find the video at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=tuv0_cP-0yU&feature=youtu.be For everyoneÕ s sake, I hope the politicians remain true to their word! The last Got Game event of the season will focus on game cooking, and it will be hosted by the fireside in the historic Huntington Lodge Trophy Room on Saturday, April 13 from 3 -5 p.m. Please register in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org or for more information contact Paul Hai at email@example.com or 518-582-4551 ext 104. The Ò Got Game CookingÓ is a timely topic, as many hunters are currently getting to the bottom of the freezer, and struggling with
how to prepare the last few cuts of venison left in their freezers. It is also a good time to learn some new recipes for cooking fresh brook trout, which will soon become a popular table fare in many local households, directly after ice out. The price of admission, (only $5) will get you a bowl of rabbit chili, venison stew, and a beer or other cold beverage. Participants are also encouraged to provide a game dish to share if they like. I plan to bring along a crock pot of cranberried venison, which has become one of my favorite ways to prepare the last few bags of meat in the freezer. After simmering in a crock pot for 16 hours, even the Ô chewy-newyÕ twitching muscles of a whitetail are as tender as a filet mignon. In addition to the venison dish, I hope to have a few snacks of Ò maple smoked trout,Ó if I can procure a few brookies in time. The beginning of trout season typically coincides with the annual sugaring season, and there is no better way to prepare fresh brookies than to soak them in a maple syrup brine, and smoke the fillets over the coals of a smoldering tag alder fire. Although a proper brine is very important, the process is never complete without an adequate supply of fresh cut tag alders. I soak the alder pieces overnight and place the small chunks directly on top of hardwood, charcoal briquettes. Do not let the alder pieces catch flame. This recipe calls for brook trout, however it works quite well with perch or any fish fillet, as well as turkey, venison, or other game. It’s an old favorite for making Ò trout candy.Ó Keys to a good product are in the brine and in the choice of smoking wood. I prefer to use green, tag alder or apple, both species of which are readily available in the spring. One along the streams, the other when pruned in the local orchards. Soak the cut wood overnight to prevent it from catching fire in the smoker. Promptly remove any pieces that begin to flame For the brine mix: Based on 4-6 pounds of fish -adjust accordingly. • 2-4 gallons of water with 1-3 pounds of Kosher salt • Add 1 quart of pure maple syrup, or 1 cup brown sugar. • 1 1/2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon juice • 2 tablespoons of liquid/squeezed garlic; powder doesn’t dissolve well • 2 tablespoons of liquid/squeezed onion; powder doesn’t dissolve well • 1 tablespoon crushed black pepper • 4-6 large Bay leaves(whole) Bring the whole mix to a roaring boil and let it cool Ò completelyÓ before adding fish fillets. Prepare fillets with skin intact, the thinner the fillets, the dryer the meat. Do not place fillets into brine mix until after it has cooled completely. Put the fillets in the mix and store in a refrigerator for 24 hours, covered. Remove fillets, and place on racks to let them air dry completely before smoking, usually 2-3 hours. Drying properly will allow the formation of a glaze that will serve to seal in moisture so the smoked fish will not be too dry.
April 13, 2013 Smoke the fillets over a low heat, with no flames, according to weight. 1-1 1/2 lb = 30 minutes 1 1/2-3 lb = 1-1/2 hr. 3-5 lb = 2 1/2- 3 hr. Fillets will develop a nice bronze color and will be firm to the touch, but not dry. Do not overcook. Remove from heat and let cool on racks in open air. And try not to eat the entire batch at one sitting. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

the process of manufacturing clarinets, starting with the harvesting of the Mpingo tree, which is commercially endangered. Ò The Mpingo tree takes 70-200 years to mature, so it has to be at least 70 years old to harvest,Ó Von Haugg said. The heartwood of the MpingoÑ located at the innermost core of the trunkÑ is so saturated with carbon that itÕ s black, making it particularly resistant to damage and therefore extremely wellsuited for handling the rigors of instrument manufacturing. “This tree is not only an official music tree, it’s also beneficial to this global carbon initiative that weÕ ve got going on,Ó Von Haugg said. Ò This tree actually absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than 12 other trees combined.Ó But Von Haugg is as much a realist as she is a conservationist. She isnÕ t against using Mpingo for instruments, she just wants to educate people on the ecological importance of the tree. Since most Mpingo is harvested in Tanzania, Clarinets for Conservation works with students in Korongoni Secondary School in Moshi, Tanzania. The students, most of whom have never seen, or heard, a clarinet, are introduced to the instrument and taught how to play it. After learning a specific musical program and learning about the Mpingo tree they go on a trip around the region to visit local schools, where they put on an assembly and teach other students about the sought-after tree. Following the assembly, the students take trees that they brought, some Mpingo, some not, and plant them around the school. Last year, about 500 Mpingo trees were planted. They will be worth millions of dollars once they mature. Ò Those trees become an investment in those schools,Ó Von Haugg said. In the United States, Von Haugg does similar programs around the country with Clarinets for Conservation. Some of them are straight recitals with booths set up to edu-

arrangement of Ò IÕ ve Got a Robe.Ó Concert proceeds will benefit the restoration of Trinity EpiscopalÕ s historic painted-glass windows. The church was built in 1831. According to congregation member Keith Wills, the building is the second oldest church in Plattsburgh and one of the oldest public buildings in the region. Ò The congregation was founded in 1821 and the church was consecrated in 1833,Ó said Wills. Ò We are a small church but we are vibrant.Ó The gems of the historic church are the 10 painted glass windows that were installed in 1866. Ò The windows arenÕ t stained, they are painted. In the 1800Õ s painted glass was thought to be too colorful by the churches and most started installing stained glass windows, for whatever reason our congregation decided to go with the painted glass,Ó said Wills. The first attempt at restoration of these windows occurred in 1972. Wills said the restoration only proved to create more problems. Ò When the windows were installed the contractors put up a cloudy sort of storm glass on the outside,Ó said Wills. The Ò cloudyÓ glass muted the sunlight coming through the glass. Wills said in the next step of the restoration they will ensure clear protective glass is installed to allow daylight to go through the glass. Ò A larger problem was when the storm glass was installed there was no ventilation to let out the moisture, this caused the wood frames of the glass to deteriorate,Ó said Wills.

Through fundraising in the congregation, Wills said they were able to send the first three windows to Rohlf Stained & Leaded Glass Studio in Mount Vernon. For the three windows to be redone the cost for the congregation was $51,000. Ò Through generous gifts from congregation members and gifts of items to sell on Ebay we were able to raise enough money,Ó said Wills. The congregation members went through their attics to find a number of different items to sell. Wills said items ranged in worth from $15 to hundreds of dollars. Ò We are a small congregation most of us are retired and living on a set income, and we were worried we wouldnÕ t have enough cash, but by a leap of faith we were able to have the money by March,Ó said Wills. The three windows should be installed by mid-April. Though they arenÕ t sure when they will be able to send out the rest of the windows or how much they will need, Wills said the congregation will proudly be able to show the newly restored windows in the front of the church for the community to share. Ò We are vibrant, we may be a small congregation, but weÕ re vibrant. When people walk past our church and see these windows they will see what has been done and what is in store for us.Ó Concert admission is $15 per person and can be paid in cash or by check.
