School officials feel the process is being rushed By Stephen Bartlett

PLATTSBURGH — Saranac Central School has been meeting regularly to devise a new evaluation system for teachers that complies with state regulations. “I am optimistic we will have that document in place by Sept. 1,” said Superintendent Kenneth Cringle. That bodes well for Saranac as the state of New York pushes districts statewide to come on board with new evaluations or have a system chosen for them. Many North Country schools are not in the same position as Saranac

and are feeling rushed with the time initially promised to reform evaluations suddenly cut short as the state tries to hold onto significant federal funding. “Fortunately for Saranac with evaluations we have been proactive and have a committee that has been meeting regularly,” Cringle said. Gov. Andrew Cuomo told the state Education Department and New York State United Teachers they had 30 days to settle lawsuits over teacher evaluations or the state would do it for them. New York state could lose $1 billion in federal money tied to Race to the Top, which, among other things

American Heart Association saves lives P L AT T S B U R G H — K i m Trombley underwent openheart surgery in 2009. Since 2009 she’s been very involved in the American Heart Association. “Once I was told I needed surgery it took on a whole different meaning for me,” said the Champlain resident. “In my situation there are no warning signs, so education is very important.” She was part of team Pfizer, which was recognized Jan. 18 at the American Heart Association’s 2011 Heart Walk awards ceremony at Olive Ridley’s in Plattsburgh. Team Pfizer took first place in the team category for raising $12,606. Rick Martindale of Plattsburgh took first place for individual fundraiser and the top community team was Hearts for Love. In all, the Oct. 15, 2011

Heart Walk raised roughly $117,000. About 1,500 walkers participated to raise money for the American Heart Association, which conducts research to fight heart disease and stroke. Heart disease is the number-one killer in America, while stroke is number four. “It is probably just about what we raise every year, and it is a wonderful commitment on part of the entire community,” said Kathy McCarthy, senior regional director of communication for the American Heart Association. “It was a great day.” James Snook was the 2011 chair for the event. Heart disease runs in his family. “I fight my weight constantly.” But through the American Heart Association he learned about weight management. “This is my way of giving back,” Snook said. “The

“Locally we work to educate people on heart disease and stroke prevention,” said Keri mack, regional director of the American Heart Association. “We do outreach with hospitals and schools and raise money for life-sav-

Clinton County- When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they’re even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home’s “first Impression” and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a homeseller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the process, and on its own is

not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recent study, which compiled 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Homesellers: How To Get The Price You Want And Need”. This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to not only sell, but to sell for the price you want. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call 1-800-282-1097 and enter ID #7016. You can call any time, 24 hours, 7 days a week.

ing research. “Things like CPR wouldn’t have been created without research of the American Heart Association.” As far as Ed and Louise Mazuchowski are concerned, that education and research have kept Mr. Mazuchowski alive. “I had quadruple-bypass surgery in 2008 and have had other heart issues since then,” he said. “It has been a struggle.” “Ed would not be here without the quality and the knowledge of doctors at CVPH,” Mrs. Mazuchowski said. “He’s had six heart doctors just in this area, and we learn something every year.” The couple has been married 45 years and enjoys participating in the Heart Walk each year. “You become friends with these people and they support you,” Mrs. Mazuchowski said.

Governor’s proposal shortchanges schools By Stephen Bartlett P L AT T S B U R G H — I t ’ s going to be a tight year financially, said Northeastern Clinton Central School Superintendent Peter Turner. “I am certainly not very encouraged,” he said of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive budget proposal. In fact, most North Country schools seem disillu-

sioned by the state-aid numbers released by the governor, saying they will not even cover cost-of-living increases, let alone provide districts with adequate state aid. Unless something changes, school officials say their only options will be deep and painful cuts in programs, services and personnel. Northeastern Clinton Central School would receive a 1.47-percent increase, or roughly $170,000 more under Cuomo’s proposal. “That is not a lot of money,” Turner said. “I just don’t understand the rhyme or

reason of how they came up with these numbers. “That is not a huge increase when you look at health insurance, retirement costs and wages going up. That doesn’t begin to cover our increases.” The only options left, he said, are cost savings and reductions. The district is already trying to consolidate and eliminate some bus runs. “It is going to be a painful budget season,” Turner said. Saranac Central School would receive a 1.45-percent increase in aid. “It was very disappointing,” said Superintendent

Pat McGrail shooting for Airborne title in 2012 PLATTSBURGH — Airborne Speedway competitor Pat McGrail of Candiac, QC is going all out in an attempt to return the DIRT Modified title north of the USA border in 2012. McGrail has purchased a new Troyer DIRTcar Modified chassis designed specifically for asphalt racing and a new RL Racing engine to go with it. He’s also welcomed Fastenal aboard as a new sponsor. McGrail came on strong in 2011 after a slow start to place sixth in the Ernie’s Discount Tools Modified point standings while recording three podium finishes. “I am going to try my best to bring the Airborne championship trophy home to Quebec just like Martin Roy did last year,” McGrail said. Roy has announced plans to compete in the CASCAR series this season. In 2009, he became the first Canadian to win Airborne’s lead division championship in 38 years. He became a two-time track champion in 2011 by overtaking Patrick Dupree of Saranac Lake, NY in August. “This will be my third full season at Airborne,” McGrail said. “We did okay my first year and we were quite good last year, but not good enough to beat the top drivers like Roy, Dupree and George Foley. Last year we struggled at times. The car was a little too heavy in the back, had problems coming out of the corners and was hard on the brakes. The rear end would jump around too much.” Rene Lessard of RL Racing has enjoyed much success at Canadian dirt tracks, including Autodrome Granby. Troyer race cars have set the standard for Modified racing in the Northeast for decades. “We’re trying to advance some rear suspension ideas and position components in a way that’s best suited for pavement,” Troyer owner Billy Colton said. “You need the proper balance between flexibility and stiffness. A stiff car can be fast, but it can also be very unforgiving if you don’t hit the setup just right.” “I’m very respectful of how Airborne’s promoter Mike Perrotte has kept a lid on expenses in the Modified division,” Colton said. “His approach has been great. You can still take a regular dirt modified car there and be competitive. The chassis we’ve built for Pat McGrail and Roger Labreche fit the rulebook.” McGrail’s title bid will be assisted by two long-time crew members - Yvon Perron and Leandre Laroche. “I’m 50, Yvon and Leandre are 60-plus,” McGrail said. “We agreed we need to come back and give it another try at Airborne. It’s very competitive there, but it’s a very good place to race and we still have the need for speed.” Airborne’s 59th season opener is set for Sunday, April 29.

Kenneth Cringle. “That will not meet our current needs to maintain our programs.” Last year when state aid was inadequate districts could turn to federal job funds, but that money has dried up. That leaves difficult decisions for the 2012-13 school year. “It looks like staffing reductions may be imminent,” Cringle said. Beekmantown Central School is scheduled to receive 1.87-percent less in state aid. “That is not comforting news,” said Superintendent Scott Amo. “That means we are talking about making up $200,000 to $300,000 of lost state aid that would have to come out of programs.” He cannot imagine creating a budget under Cuomo’s proposal without making significant reductions. The property-tax cap, while understandable, he said, makes the process all the more dif-

ficult. Plus, the district is entering into negotiations with an employee group and has inadequate fund balance. All these scenarios create a set of perfect storms, Amo said. “We are jammed pretty tight.” Plattsburgh City School’s aid run effectively represents a zero-percent increase. “That has been the same amount since 2008,” said Superintendent James “Jake” Short. Yet the district has not been immune increases in health insurance, energy, retirement and more during that time. The district is used to no increase in aid and expected it under Cuomo’s proposal, but at the same time there had been discussion about new aid for schools. “You can’t have cost-ofliving increases and a limitation both on any form of rev-

enue we get, which is a tax cap, which is understandable, and the state not fully funding mandated programs,” Short said. “This will be another one of those years in which what we didn’t take away before we have to talk about taking away now. “This will be a painful budget process.”

PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man is in jail facing felony weapons charges. On the evening of Jan. 19, the Plattsburgh police Department received a complaint alleging the illegal possession of weapons by Ryan T. Tolbert, 26, of 64 Set Point Condominiums in Plattsburgh. Patrol officers investigated the report and confiscated five rifles, ammunition, high capacity magazines and reloading equipment from his Set Point condominium. Tolbert was arrested and charged with the Class A misdemeanor of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree for allegedly being in possession of the rifles after having been convicted of a serious offense. Upon further investigation by Plattsburgh Police Department detectives and the New York State Police Troop B Gun Unit, it was determined that several of the magazines allegedly possessed by Tolbert were prohibited large capacity maga-

2012 State of the City Address

Life or death .. what would you do?

Mayor outlines his vision T I

n 2011, Plattsburgh residents and business owners faced adversity in dealing with an unprecedented flood and Hurricane Irene. The damage was devastating; however, the North Country addressed these challenges directly once again. Strength and perseverance are not just words in our vocabulary. I am very proud of the resolve shown by our community during these difficult periods. The City of Plattsburgh finances continued to move in a positive direction. In the initial year of the Property Tax Cap, our tax rate remained unchanged, our tax levy increased only 1 percent, and no utility or garbage rate increases were implemented. Our fund balances remain strong and responsible and the Municipal Lighting Department finances continue to improve. Our bond rating was upgraded to its highest level in recent memory. This was accomplished despite the national and state economic downturn and high unemployment and foreclosure levels. Difficult but necessary decisions were once again the norm and not the exception, securing our longterm financial stability. City development was surprisingly strong in 2011. CVPH and Plattsburgh State invested in development projects resulting in new services and programs. There were 37 new housing units constructed and more are coming in 2012. New businesses opened and established businesses expanded and rebuilt. The city’s Independent Energy Efficiency Program (IEEP) assisted 14 businesses and numerous residents with energy lighting upgrades and insulation projects resulting in significant power savings. Confidence in our city appears to be positive and growing. Quality of life in Plattsburgh continues to improve. The Pine Street and Plattsburgh State portions of the Saranac River Trail are close to completion. We invested in reconstruction improvements for sections of Boynton, Cornelia, Broad, Elm, Pine, and Miller streets in 2011. The Akey Landfill, after decades of neglect, will be completely closed in 2012. NYSEG continues to remediate the Saranac River and Caroline Street areas. The newly-opened Dock Street boat

launch has increased public access to Lake Champlain. The Half Marathon, Eastern Snocross, Battle of Plattsburgh, Mayor ’s Cup & Regatta, and National Fishing Tournament events continue to grow in popularity. The City Beach Rockeater event is scheduled to return. The Farmer ’s Market is thriving and expanding its offerings to locals. The efforts of the North Country Economic Development Council brought $103 million to the region including funding for The Strand Theatre which, upon completion, will enhance downtown. The Campus Community Coalition has been meeting for close to three years successfully addressing the college/city neighborhood issues. Mark Rogers and John Niles were appointed as City Court Judge and Assistant City Court Judge, respectively. Good things are happening in Plattsburgh. In 2012, the City of Plattsburgh will be investing in very important infrastructure improvement projects. The design for larger spillway capacity and new spillway chute is close to completion for the Mead Reservoir. Construction is scheduled to begin in late summer. Design upgrades to Westbrook 1 and replacement of Westbrook 2 dams are scheduled to begin. Construction repairs continue at our Water Filtration Plant. These projects are investments ensuring a healthy and consistent water supply for future generations. We are working on final details for the Durkee Street Parking Lot pavement project. Our 2012 Capital Plan also includes several street projects and equipment purchases. The long overdue Macdonough Monument sewer upgrade project will reduce surface overflows during flash rainstorms. The project will include a new 36-inch pipe beneath the railroad tracks, address the below grade excess water flow to the river, and replace a 12 inch decaying sewer line. The city was approached by a local private business group associated with the Destination Master Plan with designs on developing the City Beach. Their plan was ambitious and creative. The city was also contacted by local individuals with an interest in developing the Dock Street See KASPRZAK, page 10

Reading to children is crucial and fun I

started reading to Darby when she was in the womb.

It wasn’t that I then knew the value of reading, though as an avid reader myself, I wasn’t oblivious. Ultimately, I made sure I read to my daughter every chance I could, including every night until she could read on her own. I still wanted to read to her at that point too, but when she rolled her eyes, more than once, and said she could do it herself, I gave up. At that point I thought, “mission accomplished.” I had instilled in her a love of books and along the way, I believe, a love for learning. My daughter has always, and continues to excel at school, and I have to believe that reading to her daily played a major role in it.

In fact, I know it did. I recently wrote a story and spoke to parents and educators who all stressed the importance of reading to children. Like me, they noticed a difference in their children compared to others who had not been read to. The research backs it up. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 26 percent of children who were read to three or four times a week by a family member of guardian recognized all letters of the alphabet, compared to 14 percent who were read to less frequently or not all. Sixty percent of children who were read to frequently count to 20 or higher, compared to 44 percent of those who were not read to frequently.

Stephen Bartlett

From the Editor’s Desk A total of 54 percent write their own names, versus 40 percent, while 77 percent read or pretend to read, compared to 57 percent. Sadly, only 55 percent of children ages three to five were read to daily in 2007.

That doesn’t mean those families are dead beats. Even before the Great Recession, both spouses often had to work to support the family, and then their are children who live in single parent households. Now I am not saying reading doesn’t happen in such families, because it definitely does, but I am saying that many people are stressed out and tired. They come home exhausted, make dinner and put the kids to bed and pass out themselves. But as Plattsburgh Public Library Director Stanley Ransom said, all it takes is 15 minutes at bed time to accomplish the task. That 15 minutes of reading to your child is worth the time, as it will help with development and continue to pay off over the child’s educational career. But besides development, statis-

tics, studies and assisting with the education process, it is a beautiful moment to spend with a child. A parent can come home exhausted from work, already feel guilty about the lack of time with the child, and suddenly find themselves, in 15 quick minutes, getting quality time the child will remember and help the child in an array of ways. I understand the benefit of reading to children, but I gotta admit, my favorite part of reading to my children over the years has been snuggling up close to them, each night. And suddenly, I found myself reaping the benefits of reading to my children too. Stephen Bartlett is editor of the North Countryman and The Burgh. He may be reached at

Funeral director finds himself caring for his own M y flight arrived back in Plattsburgh from Pittsburgh, PA at 9 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2010. It was the first time I'd seen my father in person in four months. As the plane taxied down the Plattsburgh runway I called a loved one. My dad was going to have another lung transplant, a double lung transplant. The first one, in October, went well but unfortunately the lung was damaged, unknown to the physicians at the time of the transplant. My dad had suffered with this “broken” lung for months. The time had finally come for two new lungs. I arrived home and went to bed. As a small town funeral director I have been awakened hundreds of times during the night. This time was different. I answered and in a very broken voice my mother said, simply, “Neil, he’s gone.” I was in shock and momentarily numb. We were all so hopeful. I leapt from bed as I always have when I was needed. It was not time to grieve. It was time to get my father home. I was unsure at that time if I would be able to embalm my father's body, but I wanted to try. I called a number of funeral homes before I settled on one I was comfortable with. The gentleman sounded like he had been around the business for a while. I explained that all we needed was for a licensed funeral director to sign my father's remains from the facility. My mother had a vehicle capable of bringing him home. By 10 a.m. my mother was on her way home accompanied by family friend, Linda Be-

dard. As my father's body was being brought home, I sat in my office and met with a gentleman to plan his mother's funeral. She had passed the day before while I was visiting dad.

Exercising with joint pain can be a real challenge F or those with joint problems, getting enough exercise can seem like a real challenge. Arthritis sufferers often think that exercise will make their problems worse when in fact, movement and exercise as we know it has many positive benefits. Arthritis sufferers should stick to a balanced exercise program including a combination of three main types of exercise: Range of motion exercises, strengthening exercises, and aerobic exercises. Range of Motion Exercises are basic exercises that keep the joints supple by moving them through their full range of motion. A physical therapist or other medical professional can give you specific advice on which joints you should focus on and which range of motion exercises are best for you. Strength Exercises help to maintain and/or increase muscle strength. A balanced strength training program that includes any kind of resistance like, hand weights, exercise bands, or your own bodyweight can be included. A certified fitness professional can help you get started with an appropriate program Aerobic Exercise strengthens the heart while making the lungs more efficient and improve stamina for example: walking, swimming, or cycling. Start slowly and work your way up to longer sessions. Some of the benefits that can be seen by arthritis sufferers when including a balanced exercise program include: • Improved health and fitness – Increased energy, improved sleep, weight control, improved cardiovascular condition, decreased depression, improved self-esteem and emotional health.

• Improved overall ability to perform everyday activities. • Strengthened and maintained bone and cartilage tissue. • Strengthened muscles around the joints. • Exercise keeps the joints moving. Without exercise many arthritis sufferers may see: • Loss of mobility in joints. • Disfigured joints that may loose the ability to be straightened from lack of mobility. • Pain • Brittle bones • Weaker muscles making it more difficult to perform everyday activities with ease such as carrying groceries from you car to your house. As you can see, if you suffer from arthritis, exercise can greatly improve or maintain your quality of life for years to come. So don’t give in, “Keep Moving, to Keep Moving”! As always, you should check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program and meet with a qualified fitness professional to help you get started with an appropriate exercise program.

Ag commissioner speaks of reform Darrel Aubertine delivers governor’s budget message locally

By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — When you are looking to do a job for everybody, you have to strip the politics away, says Darrel Aubertine. “This administration has done a very good job doing that,” said the New York State Commissioner of the Agriculture and Markets. Aubertine spoke at the North Country Chamber of Commerce in Plattsburgh on Jan. 20, delivering executive budget and reform plan messages. Collaboration is key in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration, Aubertine said, and there is much more cooperation now. “We are talking to each other.” He said the governor pushed forward an executive budget that was just as much about reform. “This budget is a fiscal plan that is balanced,” Aubertine said. “We cut middle class taxes to the lowest level it has been in 58 years.” There are no gimmicks and no new taxes or fees. “This year we will eliminate all automatic inflators,” Aubertine said. Cuomo leaned on aid to localities to save more than $700 million, on top of $1.3 billion in savings through a flat increase to state agencies. “The budget is manageable,” Aubertine said. In terms of economic development, there are plans to improve 100 bridges, 2,000 miles of roads and finance up-

grades to 90 municipal water systems for a $15 billion investment in infrastructure in New York state. The new convention center will impact the entire state

with a total $4 billion private investment and no state dollars. Likewise, establishing energy highways will entail a $2 billion private investment and no state dollars. Aubertine spoke of a constitutional amendment to legalize casino gambling. “We already have gambling, but we aren’t using it to its fullest potential,” he said. “We need to be honest about the role gaming already plays in New York state.” He spoke of addressing the foundation of government. “A lot of it is about the way we do things,” he said. “We need to help government evolve. “Every year there are more programs passed with no rhyme or reason. We must re-evaluate the way these agencies are working.” Everybody wants mandate relief Aubertine said, but not everyone is stepping up to the plate. Cuomo will reign in Medicaid and pension costs. “Our primary mission is education,” Aubertine said. Yet New York is number one in spending and 38 in graduation rates. “We are trying to create a competitive grant based on performance,” Aubertine said. He also pointed out that there is no teacher evaluation system in place and the state stands to lose $700 million in federal funding. “We are serious and don’t have a choice,” Aubertine said. “Our students and taxpayers deserve no less.” The state has made progress in the last year, he said, and is on a positive track. There are challenges, but Aubertine said New York is in a good place to meet them. “We are looked at as being a model. We are looked at as being a success story. We will be successful.”

Saranac School turns to energy efficient upgrades to help district By Katherine Clark DANNEMORA — District savings are more important than ever, Saranac Central School Superintendent Kenneth Cringle said. After the reading Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive budget proposal released on Jan. 17, Cringle said he was disappointed and found the proposed funding discouraging. “These are definitely going to be some challenging times and some difficult choices for our school district will have to be made,” Cringle said. Saranac School will receive a 1.45 percent increase in State Aid funding from the 2011-2012 budget year. Cringle said he hopes the district board members can devote some time and review the current funding to prevent job cuts for the 20121013 school year. Cringle said the district continues to seek cost saving measures through energy improvements and upgrades. The school board hopes with the help of an energy performance service company the district can increase energy

EXCEL UPDATE The Excel project is currently in its planning stage. Cringle said the board is meeting with architecture and engineering firms and making plans to submit bids to the State Education board. The project will be completed in two phases. Phase one will involve the instalation of the new district phone system and instalation of an updated water filtration system for the middle school, high school and elementary school. Cringle said the district hopes to have phase one completed by the end of the summer. Phase two of the project is projected to complete construction in Spring 2013 and will complete the remaining projects such as the instalation of new windows, doors, and replacement of fire alarm devices.

years, according to Cringle. The project will parallel the Excel Project approved by district voters and the State Education board. “Many of the items that they change will parallel the project and promote the energy, health, and safety aspects of the project,” Cringle said. “We need to find savings now more than ever.”

savings. Cringle said energy performance service companies: Trane Front, Schnider Electric and Seimens, presented to the school board how their services could save the district money by switching older lighting and controls for more energy efficient models at their regular board meeting on Jan. 17. The proposed plan could help the district by upgrading to more energy efficient lighting systems and system controls. “It will certainly compliment our Excel project and in the long run we will be much more energy efficient and also cost effective,” Cringle said. The upgrades and work done are proposed to cost the district nothing, Cringle said. The service company would be paid based on a percentage of savings in energy costs seen through improvements. “What we save on energy costs they will receive a percentage of that,” Cringle said. “Bottom line, the school does not provide any expense for their services other than they take a portion of the savings.” To be approved by the State Education Board services provided must render a certain percentage of savings within 18

Protest from page 1 who publicly demonstrated outside Congressman Bill Owens’ Office, 14 Broad Street, in Plattsburgh Jan. 20. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission was a landmark Supreme Court decision holding that the First Amendment prohibits government from placing limits on independent spending for political purposes by corporations and unions. Opponents are seeking an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would state the rights are in fact intended for human beings and not legal entities such as corporations. Representatives from the Progressive Coalition of Northern New York and local members of the Working Families Party organized Friday’s event. They are demanding that elected officials take action. For his part, Congressman Owens believes, “we need to reduce the amount of money in politics.” He was disappointed with the Supreme Courts’ decision in the Citizens United case. “It in effect opened the flood gates for campaign funds at

all levels of government saying corporations are considered individuals,” said Bill Cowan. It is the individual voter who counts, he said, and citizens have to be responsible. “We have to re-energize the citizenry and get them out from in front of the television to act.” It is simple for Rita FitzGerald. “They are not citizens.” She came out in the bitter cold to publicly demonstrate because she believes it is important to start the movement locally. Jim King agreed. “We have to do something. We have to get the money out of politics.” Mona White called for public financing of elections. “Then it is a citizens thing and not a corporate thing,” she said. “It is all accountable.” Tim Palmer proposed a constitutional amendment. “There was no intent when they wrote the Constitution to give corporations freedom of speech.” Bertrand Ouellette believes the majority of the population should have a stronger voice in government than the minority with money. They only have interest in profit, he said, and don’t care “unless we are customers.” Andrews proposed a simple solution. “We need to reverse Citizens United.”

Kasprzak from page 6 waterfront and potential hotel site. Both plans will be reviewed by the Common Council in 2012. The city is also considering a lease agreement with The Champlain Valley Transportation Museum for additional space as they continue to expand. I believe the City of Plattsburgh continues to strengthen our position as a destination and tourist location. Our financial and bond positions are strong. Our tax and utility rates have remained stable. Development and business interest in the city remains high. Responsible development of our waterfront, expansion of the Plattsburgh International Airport, future contract awards to Bombardier and Nova Bus, and a positive Laurentian Aerospace announcement will propel the city and region on a path of success resulting in a brighter future. Personally, I will continue to govern and manage the City of Plattsburgh seeking improved efficiency and accountability. I will always work in the best interests of the majority of residents, business owners, and taxpayers. We will meet each challenge and do our best to achieve the highest level of success we all expect for the City of Plattsburgh. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as the Mayor of the City of Plattsburgh.

required reforms in teacher and principal evaluations. On such reform, tying educators success to student test scores, has caused much angst in the education community. Schools that implement the system by Sept. 1 will be eligible for additional funds, though just what that means is unclear among school officials. Schools have until Jan. 17, 2013 to put the program in place or face or lose aid increases for two years. “We have been working on the new evaluation since this summer, and we have not finalized it with teachers though,” said Northeastern Clinton Central School Superintendent Peter Turner. “I am not sure what this deadline means. It takes a while.” He said there remains a great deal of uncertainty over what the new regulations mean. “There are as many questions as there are answers at this point,” Turner said. For example, the entire process was supposed to begin with a few districts testing it, Plattsburgh City School being one of them. Other districts would learn from those experiences. “But now every school district has to come up with a new system,” Turner said. “I believe they should be field testing it as they said. Districts like Plattsburgh were given funds to do it and were given a year longer than us to work on it.” Turner further worries that if Cuomo rolls out his own system then districts will have wasted a great deal of time and effort and have nothing to show for it. If that had been said from the beginning, he would understand, but the whole situation is changing rapidly. “I hope we haven’t wasted a great deal of time,” Turner said. Beekmantown Central School is also trying to sort through teacher evaluations. “It seems he (Cuomo) has a carrot to wave to school districts that can reach an agreement on evaluations,” said Superintendent Scott Amo. “It seems to suggest if we comply

there will be additional monies made available to those districts, but it is unclear how much.” Then there is the prospect the state will develop a statewide evaluation plan with some districts a lot further ahead in their own processes than others are. Beekmantown and its teacher association have not met face to face yet to discuss teacher evaluations, though the latter has been working behind the scenes, examining evaluation instruments. “If we don’t begin our formal conversations we all risk being lumped in with the state evaluation,” Amo said. “But I think we will have enough time if the urgency through the governor ’s language can be felt accurately through both of us. “We really need to get working on this together.” The urgency is also worrying groups such as the New York State School Boards Association. “By linking sate aid increases to the new teacher and principal evaluation system, the governor is placing an even greater urgency on resolving this issue,” said NYSSBA Executive Director Timothy G. Kremer. “We have serious concerns that the collective bargaining requirements in the current evaluation system will force fiscally strapped school districts to succumb to union demands just to avoid the loss of funding.” Plattsburgh City School, on the other hand, is very close to having new principal and teacher evaluation systems in place. “We have been working on this for some time,” said Superintendent James “Jake” Short. In fact, the district was among a select few awarded grant money to PILOT the process for other districts, a step that is suddenly being skipped in the state’s urgency to hold onto federal dollars. “I am confident we can easily have it in place,” Short said. “We have more to finish but I feel we are in a good position.” In fact, 120 teachers at the district currently fall under the new evaluation system in the works there. That tells Short the district is headed in the right direction, though he admitted it takes much longer to put all the pieces together than people realize. “We do see it as highly valuable in changing instruction and the function of schools.”

The Development Corporation names interim director Dr. Frederick Woodward, appointed to the post

By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — Dr. Frederick Woodward has been named interim director of The Development Corporation. The Board of Directors of The Development Corporation of Clinton County appointed him to the position beginning Jan. 17. Adore Flynn Kurtz, who has been president of The Development Corporation since 1996, recently announced her retirement. “Fred is no stranger to The Development Corporation,” said Donald F. Duley, chair of The Development Corporation’s Board of Directors. Woodward served as a member of the Board of Directors of The Development Corporation in 2008. “I am delighted to have been asked to take on the role of interim president of The Development Corporation,” he said. Woodward has spent much of his career in higher education. From 2007-2009 he served as interim president of Clinton Community College. He served as president of Westfield State University in Westfield, Massachusetts from August 1997 through January 2004. From 1988 through 1997, he was president of the State University of New York, Morrisville, in Morrisville, New York. That in-

cluded responsibility for the campuses at Morrisville, Norwich and the Educational Opportunity Center at Syracuse. He was president of Butler Community College in Butler, Pennsylvania from 1985 to 1988 and interim president at Columbia Greene Community College in Hudson, New York, from 1983 to 1984. Woodward further held the position of Assistant Dean of Professional Studies at SUNY

Plattsburgh. From 1975 to 1977, he was Director of Inmate Higher Education at Clinton Community College and also chaired that school’s Business Division from 1970 to 1973. Woodward also served as chair of Massachusetts Council of Presidents, chair of the College of Technology Presidents, and chair of the Pennsylvania Community College Presidents Association.

He served on the SUNY Chancellor ’s Task Force on Budget and Policy Analysis, which is the national Think Tank for college presidents, and was keynote speaker for the Leadership Education Institute. Woodward conducted his post-doctoral study at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, Institute for the Management of Lifelong Education, in 1993. He earned his Doctor of Education at the University of Virginia in 1981, and a Master of Science at SUNY Plattsburgh. He did his graduate work while attending SUNY Albany, and earned his bachelor ’s degree at Castleton State College in Vermont. Duley said Woodward is a well-respected and active member of The Development Corporation’s Board of DIrectors and served on its Education Committee. “In addition, Fred brings with him a keen understanding and deep appreciation for Clinton County,” he said. “We are delighted to have Fred back on board in this new capacity.” Woodward said The Development Corporation is ready for the year ahead. “The staff and board have done an exemplary job of planning,” he said. “I look forward to working with such a dedicated group of staff members and community leaders.” The Development Corporation Board of Directors has created a Recruitment Committee to oversee a national search for a permanent president and CEO.

APA approves Tupper Lake resort by 10-1 vote By Andy Flynn RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) Jan. 20 approved the controversial Adirondack Club and Resort project in Tupper Lake with a 10-1 vote. Before the 11 board members cast their votes — in alphabetical order — they explained why they voted yes or no. Almost all agreed that the review process, which took almost eight years, needed improvement. But that didn’t stop most from approving the resort planned around the Big Tupper Ski Area on Mount Morris. “People have lost a lot of sleep over this,” said DEC designee Judy Drabicki. “I’ve agonized over this decision,” said Commissioner Art Lussi. “It’s hard because you have to take sides … I think this plan is very thoughtfully done.” “This brings the opportunity of economic development to Tupper Lake,” said Commissioner Bill Thomas. Commissioner Richard Booth was the only one to vote against the project, citing three main reasons: the sponsors failed to provide realistic sales figures; no wildlife inventory was required or completed, and there was no review on how the project would impact wildlife; and the project is not consistent with the APA’s resource management zoning. “I think these three flaws that I mention have caused me to conclude that this project is not consistent with the plan,” Booth said. “There is an undue adverse impact.” Here is how the board vot-

ed: •YES: Frank Mezzano (Speculator), moved motion to approve •YES: Bill Thomas (Johnsburg), seconded motion to approve •NO: Richard Booth (Ithaca) •YES: Sherman Craig (Wanakena) •YES: Judy Drabicki (Department of Environmental Conservation designee) •YES: Art Lussi (Lake Placid) •YES: Jen McCormick (Department of Economic Development designee) •YES: Dierdre Scozzafava (Department of State designee) •YES: Leilani Ulrich (Old Forge) •YES: Bill Valentino (Albany) •YES: Cecil Wray (New York City) Many residents and businesspeople from Tupper Lake were at the Jan. 20 meeting in support of the project, including Tupper Lake Village Mayor and Franklin County Legislator Paul Maroun, Jim LaValley of the ARISE (Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving Their Economy) group, Mark Moeller of the Tupper Lake Business Community, and David Tomberlin of the Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce Board and Tupper Lake Town Board. “I want Mr. Booth especially to be assured that, as long as I’m mayor, I will do everything I can to make sure that the environmental issues are properly carried out,” Maroun said during the public comment period. The developers — Preserve Associates —still need to obtain a number of permits from other agencies, including the Department of

Health and Department of Environmental Conservation, prior to construction. They will also have to apply for a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) from the Franklin County IDA. The lead developers — Michael Foxman and Tom Lawson — watched the vote at APA Headquarters in the middle of a audience of 58 people. The Park Agency’s approval includes a project order and 14 permits for the various project components, which are conditioned to ensure no undue adverse impacts occur as a result of this project. The project sponsors must strictly comply with

the New York State Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers Act for any activities in the Raquette River recreational river area. Deed restrictions will preserve about 4,600 acres of resource management lands on the project site, designed to protect open space and wildlife resources.

About the project The 2005-100 project application was filed by Preserve Associates, LLC (Sponsor), and Big Tupper, LLC, Tupper Lake Boat Club, LLC, and Oval Wood Dish Liquidating Trust (Landowners) for an Agency permit for a mixed commercial and residential development on

the sites of the former Big Tupper Ski Area, former McDonald's Marina and the surrounding Oval Wood Dish lands in the Town of Tupper Lake, Franklin County. The development proposal was first announced in February 2004. The project site is approximately 6,235± acres of property and includes lands of the former Big Tupper Ski Area, the surrounding Oval Wood Dish landholdings, and the former McDonalds Marina. Most of the site is located east of NYS Route 30, except for the marina and two other small parcels that are located west of Route 30. The site includes about 1,800± feet of frontage on Lake Simond and about 235± feet on Big Tupper Lake at the marina.

The applicant proposes to develop a planned resort development with a ski center, a marina with 40 boat slips, an equestrian facility, a resort owners' clubhouse, a gym/spa recreation center, recreation trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, a 60-unit West Face Inn, and 706 single-family and multiple-family residential dwelling units: 206 single-family dwellings; 39 Great Camps; eight Artist Cabins at the base lodge area of the ski center; and 453 townhouse units (duplexes, triplexes and quadplexes). The developers plan to undertake the project in four phases over 15 years. The Adirondack Club is being marketed as an Orvis Sporting Lifestyle Community.
