A HANDS-IN EXPERIENCE
This Week STRAND THEATRE
By Shaun Kittle
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH„ ItÍ s a day of free stuff. Really. On Saturday, June 15, the Really Really Free Market will bring free clinics, music, poetry, items and more to Trinity Park downtown. And yes, itÍ s really free. This yearÍ s market opens at 11 a.m. and will run past sundown. Last yearÍ s Really Really Free Market marked a divergence from the original, which was organized by Meghan Risley and Althea Holmes and took place in 2011 at ROTA GalleryÍ s original 19 Clinton Street location. ñ Last year I wanted to make it a bigger, public, festivaltype event,î said Matt Hall, organizer of the outdoor event CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

PLATTSBURGH„ On Saturday, PlattsburghÍ s inaugural First Weekend transformed downtown into a different kind of place. It was the kind of place where musicians set up in front of businesses, happily belting out melodies to the delight of people passing by. It was a place where children played in the streets, steering miniature police cars and farm tractors between orange traffic cones. It was a place where people sat outside, conversing amongst each other while enjoying a late lunch. The effort to hold First Weekends downtown came as a collaboration between several non-profit groups and volunteers, including Vision 2 Action, Adirondack Young Professionals, North Country Cultural Center for the Arts and ROTA Gallery, who agreed it was time for Plattsburgh to make a change. ñ If we can keep the same momentum for the next one that we had for this one, itÍ s going to be a great summer for Plattsburgh,î said Champlain Wine Company owner Dr. Colin Read, one of the eventÍ s organizers and chair of the SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Finance and Economics.

Students get hands-on at Miner Farm By Shaun Kittle
email@example.com CHAZY„ Since 1982, the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute has hosted a free open-house to fifth-grade students throughout the region called Farm Days for fifth graders. 7 KH W KUHHGD\ HYHQWZ KLFK UDQ -X QH FRQVLVW HG RI HLJ KW hands-on exhibits, all led by students studying animal sciences from universities in places as close-to-home as Vermont and as far away as Puerto Rico. The college interns are part of a summer-long research program that focuses on farm management, equine management and agriculture research. ñ Farm Days is a good opportunity in a controlled environment for the (college) students to interact with a public that doesnÍ t know a lot about agriculture,î said Wanda Emerich, Dairy Outreach Coordinator at the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute. Emerich has been involved in Farm Days for fifth graders since 1983, and said her favorite part of the event is hearing how excited people get when they come face-to-face with the sights, smells and sounds of a working farm. % X WDVW KH HOHP HQW DU\ DJ HG VW X GHQW VZ KR UHFHQW O\ YLVLW HG the farm learned, the field trip wasn’t to a glorified petting zoo— thereÍ s a lot of research going on at Miner Farm. Emerich said a lot of that research is to study the interaction between food crops and milk production. The types of feed are documented, along with how the stress of varying temperatures, humidity and overcrowding can affect the productivity of a group dairy cows. The outcome of those factors„ the components of the milk that is produced by the cows„ is studied, with the goal of determining how efficient the cows are at producing the milk. ñ Right now the research is still being summarized,î Emerich said. “There’s a lot of data that needs to be verified. We’re really trying to get more production per acre, because we arenÍ t making any more acres.î The fifth-grade students, who were from Beekmantown, Chazy, Cumberland Head, Momot, Mooers, Morrisonville, Northern Adirondack, Rouses Point and Saranac Lake elementary schools, were divvied into eight groups and spent about 30 minutes at each exhibit. The exhibits—horse behavior, field equipment, heritage exhibit, horse care, calves, feeds, dairy barn and Lavender, the fistulated cow„ were all located on the Miner Farm property. “The field trip experience should be more than a day off,” Emerich said. ñ We try to encourage our students that are giving the tour to challenge them with some math questions or some science questions.î Some of the stops along the tour, like the heritage and field care exhibits, gave lessons in history, while others, like the fistulated cow, gave the students an opportunity to get a little closer. ñ We try to keep the exhibits as hands-on as possible, and that

oneÍ s not just hands-on, itÍ s hands-in,î Emerich said. Fifth-grade students took turns inserting their arms into Lavender, a dairy cow with a fistula—an artificial entryway that grants access to one of the bovineÍ s four stomachs. Russell Miller, a veterinary science major at Purdue University in Indiana, explained the digestion process to the awe-struck fifth graders, who displayed a range of emotions as they took turns being elbow-deep in LavenderÍ s stomach, which went about its business as usual. Miller also explained that Lavender, who munched on feed and seemed genuinely oblivious to the happenings around her, was fistulated in the name science. ñ Lavender allows us to better understand forages and how they interact with the animal,î Miller said. ñ By doing that we can find out what the best feed to give livestock is, and determine whatÍ s best for them.î
Some of the exhibits at Farm Days for Fifth Graders were not as bovine invasive. Deanna Shenk, who is studying dairy science and animal and poultry science at Virginia Tech University, taught attendees about the feeding, housing and identification system of calves. As the fifth-grade students took turns petting a dairy calf, she expressed a need for consumers to better understand the process of agriculture. ñ ItÍ s great being out here, teaching agriculture to kids,î Shenk said. “It definitely helps me know what people don’t understand and what people want to know about agriculture.î The William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute will be hosting a free, open-to-the-public open house Saturday, Aug. 10 IURP QRRQ S P For more information, visit www.whminer.com

Locals give money to locals to help ﬁght cancer, one family at a time By Katherine Clark
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH „ A local group aims to be an advocate and a friend for people in the North Country that are affected by cancer. The North Country Cancer Fund wants to get the message out there to people in Essex, Clinton and St. Lawrence counties that they are here to help. ñ We havenÍ t turned down anyone who has asked for help,î said North Country Cancer Fund (NCCF) founder Thomas Douglas. ñ We
have had times where we couldnÍ t give people all the money they requested but they can reapply after.î It is the mission of the NCCF to raise money and supply financial assistance to families in the three counties who have a family member afflicted with cancer. Douglas started the fund with Rodney Provost in 2007. Joining the team has been Dawn Morrow, and DouglasÍ wife Barbara Douglas. Since the formation of the NCCF the organization has grown to include many people actively trying to help their neighbors. Douglas said
Day of clean-up at the Strand
together he and Provost saw a need for direct support for North Country cancer patients, survivors and family members. ñM y husband and I became involved in different cancer fund raisers and we saw that the money we raised here didnÍ t all stay here so he wanted to do something just for our community members,î said Barbara. ñW e decided to start this fund for everybody and when someone needs it we give them what we can from our pot.î The NCCF also offers funding to cancer patients in the three counties while they undergo treatment. ñW e offer money for non-medical costs associated with treatment like travel and food and anything they might need, weÍ ve even helped someone make their mortgage payments while their young son went through treatment,î Thomas said. ñA nyone going through cancer has a hard time paying their bills.î The fund began in 2008 with a golf tournament in Rouses Point and since its creation Douglas said they have given out more than $130,000 to locals raised through various fund raisers. The golf tournament remains the largest fund raising event, a golf tournament at the North Country Golf Course, Hayford Road, in Rouses Point June 28. Douglas said the NCCF also holds many fund raisers throughout the year. The cost of the golf tournament will be $70 for nonmembers and $50 for members of the
course. At the event there will be raffles and prizes for the top three winners. The Douglas family became personally acquainted with the fight against cancer when Barbara was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000. Barbara fought the disease through chemotherapy and was told by her doctors she was in remission. In 2007 while going back for an additional screening it was discovered the cancer had returned. This time, Barbara came out strong once again and has been cleared her past screenings. Barbara underwent treatment at the Fletcher Allen Breast Care Center in Vermont and continues to go back twice a year to make sure the illness does not return. ñI had good health insurance but we made friends while she went through treatment who didnÍ t have health insurance or good health insurance and their bills kept piling up,î Barbara said. Barbara said that since her husband began the fund he has dedicated all of his efforts to helping people. ñT his has become a full-time job for him he is constantly working on this, itÍ s a tremendous effort,î Barbara said. ñW e also have some great businesses in the area who support us and our fund raisers.î For more information about how to help the NCCF or to apply for assistance visit the NCCF website at NorthCountryCancerFund.Co or visit their Facebook page.

Basketball Camp returns to Pburgh By Claire Durham firstname.lastname@example.org

Coach Gary Castine started the first FUNdaMENTAL Basketball Camp a decade ago. The focus of the camp is to have fun while working on the fundamental and mental aspects of basketball. ñ ItÍ s been a nice ride and something I never expected to evolve as it has,î Castine said. Castine started coaching youth league in Champlain for one week a year, and then parents requested a couple weeks of camp. Castine then worked at St. MaryÍ s for two years, until his friend Jim Caren asked him to bring the camp to Our Lady of Victory. He worked St. JohnÍ s Academy after that, up until the school FORVHG LQ Now CastineÍ s with Seton Catholic, and the basketball camp is flourishing. ñ We went from 15 kids to about 40 and thatÍ s where weÍ ll cut it off because bigger isnÍ t always better, and I want to keep it manageable so I have a hand in it,î Castine said. The key is having a small number of players. The 10 to 1 ratio of players to coaches allows coaches to help with individual skills on a personal level, and kids can also pay better attention to improving their skills. ñ WeÍ ll have a drill station Mondays through Thursdays and we’re going to work on one specific skill, and there’s going to be eight different skills. ItÍ s not going to be the same skill from week one on a Monday to week two,î Castine said. Castine has noticed that many kids will improve more during the summer since they have time to work on their skills, whereas during the school year, coaches and players are more focused on the teamÍ s offense and defense. ñ Going to any camp is a positive for kids. They got a ball in their hand and theyÍ re playing and theyÍ re not sitting in front of a TV,î Castine said. For the boys: the price is $130 for one week and $240 for two weeks. The price for returning 2012 campers is $110 for one week and $220 for both weeks. For the girls: the price is $130 while the price for returning 2012 campers is $110. ) RU P RUH LQIRUP DW LRQ FDOO* DU\ &DVW LQH DWKRP H DWVFKRRO RUE\ HP DLODWJ FDVW LQH# VDUDQDF RUJ ) RUP V may also be picked up online at SetonCatholic.net.
First Weekend From page 1
First Weekends will take place on the first Friday and Saturday of every month through September, with the next one slated for -X O\ DQG Each First Weekend will begin downtown with various activities held on Friday night and will continue with an afternoon full of events the following Saturday. Last Saturday, City Hall Place was blocked off to traffic from Bridge Street to City Hall, which provided space for the kidfriendly activities and street performers. ñ The vision is to have musicians performing every 20 feet downtown,î said Lowell Wurster, member of local band Lucid and one of the eventÍ s organizers. ñ Music is one thing you donÍ t need money to do.î Wurster jammed on the street with some of his bandmates and his sister, Catie, and father, George. The ensemble had a stand-up bass, accordion, conga drums, acoustic guitar and harmonica, and were set up right on the double yellow line that bisects City Hall Place by Trinity Park. When Tim McCormick, a board member of the Adirondack Young Professionals, asked Wurster if Lucid would perform at the summerÍ s last First Weekend in September, Wurster said he loved the concept and wanted to get more involved. He began going to First Weekend meetings, and would now like to use his connections with Lucid to draw bigger acts to the event. ñ Some of my favorite memories as a kid are of people doing this, just getting together to play music,î Wurster said. ñ We need people to come out to support this, to show people that we want it.î His sister, Catie, who also performed with Punkahontas early Saturday afternoon, agreed that the event was good for downtown, but said sheÍ d like to see more cohesion in the planning of future First Weekends. ñ This is a nice concept, I just wish people could get together a little better,î Catie said. ñ ThereÍ s just a lot of people with a lot of different ideas.î ItÍ s true that getting all of the interested parties on the same page was a challenge for the eventÍ s many organizers, but those organizers largely agreed that, despite the hurdles, they were pleased with the turnout, and grateful for the work of the volunteers and businesses who made it all happen.
North Countryman - 5 ñ ItÍ s a sense of community. None of these people are getting paid, everybody just did it out of the goodness of their hearts to support the community,î said Leigh Simonette, Civic Committee Co-chair and member of the Adirondack Young Professionals board of directors. There was a catch, though„ the streets were made pedestrianonly due to the Biggest Loser Run/Walk, which happened to take place the same weekend as the inaugural First Weekend. ñ When we were sitting out in front of one of the restaurants we heard some comments about how great it was that the road was closed,î said Tim Simonette, a member of the Adirondack Young Professionals. ñ ItÍ s great to hear that positive feedback. People do like the road closed.î Several organizers and participants said they fear that First Weekends will be shackled if the cityÍ s Common Council denies a request to shut down the streets for forthcoming First Weekends. ñ I think it would be hard to do this without closing the streets down, because it would be too hard to be watching out for traffic,” said Jo Vaccaro, board member of the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum. ñ ItÍ s nice that people can enjoy wandering around without having to worry about crossing the road. It creates a nice, safe space for families to bring their children.î Vaccaro was in charge of the CVTMÍ s Kids Station, which gave kids a chance to drive five miniature pedal-powered vehicles down the middle of City Hall Place. Kids could also build their own ñ Munchie Motorî out of apples, toothpicks, string cheese, grapes and mini marshmallows. ñ This really shows the different things Plattsburgh has to offer,î said Tim McCormick, event organizer and board member of the Adirondack Young Professionals. ñ We are going to the next Common Council meeting to ask them to close the road for the next event, and weÍ re asking everyone who enjoyed this to join us. If we can show them that this is what the citizens want, then theyÍ ll be more likely to do it than if itÍ s just one or two people asking for it.î

North Countryman Editorial
The passing of the Greatest Generation
n the amount of time it took to brush your teeth this morning a World War II veteran passed away from old age. Now well into their 80s and 90s, the men and women who fought and won the Great Conflict are dying at the rate of more than 800 a day. ThatÍ s approximately one every two minutes. At one time, there were more than 15 million WWII veterans in the United States. That number has now dwindled to a little more than a million and the median age of a World War II vet is now 92. It is estimated by the US Veterans AdminLVW UDW LRQ W KDWE\ W KHUH Z LOOEH QR OLYLQJ WWII veterans left to tell their stories of the sights, sounds, victories and horrors of the deadliest war in world history. Regrettably, many will also never get the opportunity to personally view the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. that was dedicated in 2004 to the men and women who fought and died in World War II. That is why the work being done by North Country Honor Flight should be recognized and lauded. An arm of the national not-for-profit Honor Flight Network, the group was formed in March 2012 by Keeseville resident Danny Kaifetz with the goal of flying North Country WWII veterans to see the War II Memorial in Washington D.C. The premise is simple. Many WWII vets do not have the finances or physical wherewithal to make the trip to D.C. In many cases, friends and family also lack the resources and time to complete the three-to four-day trip by vehicle to the nationÍ s capital. With that in mind, North Country Honor Flight offers free transportation and airfare to and from the memorial. Accompanying the veterans are guardians who assist with the trip and the bus transporting them to Albany airport is flanked by veteran groups like the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, the Patriot Guard and the Legion Riders. While in Albany, they are joined by other Honor Flight groups and treated to a heroes send-off, including crowds cheering and waving, a performance by a military band and speeches from dignitaries. Signs held up by the crowd read: î God bless WWII vets,î and ñ One last mission.î Then, the veterans board a plane for their all-expense-paid trip to the memorial in Washington D.C. For many it is their one and only chance to witness the tribute that was erected in their honor. Dozens of veterans from throughout the
circulation area of Denton Publications have already taken advantage of the chance to see the memorial. A group flew out May 18 and another this past Saturday, June 8. All say they relished the opportunity. In a letter to the editor, WWII veteran Robert Savarie of Olmstedville said it was an incredibly emotional experience. ñ (It) was an emotional experience as memories of D-Day, Anzio, Battle of the Bulge, Midway, Guadalcanal, Okinawa and so many other battlefields were brought to mind,” he said. Other veterans like William H. Thompson of Willsboro, Alfred Kurtz of Elizabethtown and Ralph Filion of Plattsburgh all said they were honored by the gesture made by North Country Honor Flight and the outpouring of support they received from members of the community. Family members that accompanied the veterans had similar sentiments. FilionÍ s daughter, Michelle Filion-Schon, drove to Plattsburgh from Pottstown, Pa., to join her father on the flight. ñ I think this could very well be the best day of both of our lives,î Filion-Schon said. ñ IÍ m so blessed to be there with him when he sees the memorial for the first time. This is the first time heÍ s ever been appreciated as a veteran.î LetÍ s hope it wonÍ t be his last. $ SSUR[ LP DW HO\ P LOOLRQ P HQ DQG Z RP HQ served in the U.S. military during WWII. By the time WWII ended in 1945, Nearly 420,000 United States soldiers lost their lives „ another Z HUHZ RX QGHG In the eight years it has been in existence, the national Honor Flight Network has transported more than 98,500 WWII veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their memorial. The program has 121 hubs in 41 states, including the North Country Honor Flight based in Keeseville. The argument can certainly be made that no other war in our nation’s history was as influential in keeping our country, values and way of life intact as the Great Conflict. We owe an immeasurable amount of gratitude to the men and women who fought in WWII to keep this nation free for this generation and more importantly for future generations. But saying so is just lip service. The people who volunteer their time to organizations like North Country Honor Flight are walking the walk.

Style and Substance: Summer Break Dear style & substance: As you know, school is almost over for the summer. My kids are so excited and I can only secretly think that I am filled with dread. Most mothers act like it is great, but my kids always seem to get bored and mopey. They are 11 and 13 years old. Do you have any ideas about how to make summer better?
Any transition/change usually has excitement, stress and in your case, dread attached to it. We have actually heard this concern from other parents. What we want to add to the question, is how do we make summer a time of growth, fun and peace for the entire family without relying on too much technology, t.v. and ñ lazyî type activities? Your children are at the in-between age of needing parents to be involved in almost all activities and wanting to do things completely on their own. As much work as a family meeting/planning session might be, it is a positive way to get ahead of summer issues. Consider these suggestions and see what results you can get with a little thoughtful planning. What would you like to personally accomplish over the summer, what would your kids like to accomplish and what would your family like to accomplish? Brainstorm in the areas of fun/ outdoor activities, creativity, expanding the mind, and also downtime/relaxation. Include vacation plans if you have them or work together to plan a vacation. If a big vacation is not possible, W U\ W R J R RQDP LQL YDFDW LRQ W KLVZ LOOVHUYH\ RX UIDP LO\ Z HOO Z HDOOQHHG W R UHVWDQG UHHQHUJ L] H ñ Stay-cationî , the new stay in town vacation, is an inventive term to be off from work, chores and mundane life. It is a more formal approach to the week off, so you plan some real fun instead of ñ cleaning out the garageî as the highlight! Think about each child, yourself and your partner and what they really love to do, what they really don’t like to do, and how that fits into the whole family. Your weeks need to be in tune with these preferences, so each will know that there will always be compromise and always a different, more appealing activity to look forward to. If there is something that a child struggles with during the school year, academically, then after a brief break, it may be wise to figure out some new strategies that make the learning either easier or more fun and meaningful. If they really enjoy particular subjects, this would also be the time to really expand their knowledge in a more relaxed way. We have always found that a little planned activity for every day not only keeps everyone excited, but it is also an incentive to get the chores done and the not so fun upkeep of the house, yard, pets, etc. If there is an overall rhyme and reason to summer activities that somehow pleases everyone, you will find that there is less complaining and more team work. Set up choresƒ if they get done while you are at work, then it instantly gives you more time to just enjoy the kids and get them out doing things. Make it easy on yourself, by saying, ï if the chores arenÍ t done when we get home from work, there will be no going anywhereÍ . DonÍ t badger and question them during the day. Set the expectation and the consequence. Some chores might even be worth some allowance; divvy those up each week and teach them the value of a good work ethic! So what can the fun be? We mainly prefer all the ï freeÍ things to do in this beautiful area. Getting off your home turf regularly seems to energize everyone. That means a trip to the lake to swim, a trip to the park to fly a kite, getting on the bikes for a ride around your area, or join in the many planned free activities our community offers. Fun Runs have become very popular in the North Country and include all ages and abilities. Planting a small garden is a rewarding experience when everyone pitches in. A planning ñ recipeî is the key to relaxed fun and a weekly calendar with time frames set aside for types of activities (as simple as “outdoor time” or “summer menu planning”) will definitely help everyone settle in to summertime. Have fun embracing the less hectic schedule, being free of sports and academic deadlines, and just enjoy the sun and outdoors!

Really Really Free Market schedule of events
From page 1
and Vice-President of ROTA Gallery in Plattsburgh. ñ ThereÍ s a lot to do, but one of the main focuses of this is the free store, where people contribute items.î The concept of the free store is to create a setting where people can pass usable items on to others instead of tossing them to the curb. ñ A big part of this event is looking into what we have in the community, and recycling things instead of constantly having to produce new goods and wasting resources when itÍ s not really necessary,î Hall said. On the day of the Really Really Free Market, Trinity Park will be divided into several sections, where different free events and activities will occur. Hall said anyone can contribute items to the market by dropping them off prior to the event at the third floor of North Country Food Co-Op, 25 Bridge Street, during regular business hours. Hall stressed that all items must be clean and in working order, and that all clothing must be washed and odor free. 7 KH&R 2 S LVRSHQ0 RQGD\ W KURX J K) ULGD\ IURP S P 6DW IURP S P DQG 6X QGD\ IURP QRRQ S P Accepted items will be up-for-grabs at the free market, but thatÍ s not all.
