Chorus coach offers local lessons By John Grybos
PLATTSBURGH — Even if you just like howling in the shower, the Cumberland Bay Chorus is offering free vocal lessons from a well-known local singing coach at a menonly crooning camp for the next month. Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Northern Alliance Church annex from Feb. 28 to March 20, the chorus will have William Verity on hand to give free singing lessons to what long-time member Dave Hurd said will be a low-pressure learning environment. Verity's headed choruses for Plattsburgh City Schools, SUNY Plattsburgh, All-County ensembles in Clinton and Franklin counties and conducted the North West District Music Festival in Vermont. Chorus treasurer Tom Maglienti said get-

He was one of those tough recruiting targets until seven years ago. His neighbor, Dave Hurd, encouraged Maglienti to join up for years, but he always declined — until he retired. “I couldn't come up with more excuses not to join,” he said. And he's happy he couldn't. There's something unique about barbershop, he said. The tight harmonies of that a cappella style really get him. See BARBERSHOP, page 15

Comic book guy says tales encourage imagination Comic books let readers participate in a way other mediums do not feet wet.” much left to the imagination, By Stephen Bartlett Carson began reading a lot and film is not very email@example.com
P L AT T S B U R G H — L i k e many kids, Paul Carson read comic books. “As a kid you read them until they fell apart.” Then he reached an age, around 1970, when he lost interest and sort of left comic books behind. “I was like 13 or 14.” But one day he picked them up again and he has not stopped collecting since. In fact, today he manages the area’s only comic book store: Fantastic Planet. The term, comics, derives from the largely humorous early work in the medium. Comics as a mass medium began emerging in the United States in the early 20th century with newspaper comic strips. That combination of words and pictures quickly spread around the world. Today, comics are fond in newspapers, magazines, comic books, graphic novels and on the web. A growing number of universities have recognized the importance of comic studies, offering an array of courses at the college level. “I picked them up again in the mid-80s.” He and his future wife noticed they were written better than before and started collecting. They began with Marvel and DC titles, such as the “Fantastic 4” and “Avengers.” “We were just getting our
of independent publishers. “These comics were very different and were the intellectual property of the people creating them.” Carson and his wife moved to Plattsburgh from Albany in 1985 and in 1987 she opened Fantastic Planet. “There was no comic shop in Plattsburgh, but it had the base and a college,” Carson said. When he tries Carson cannot really recall why he read comics as a child, except there weren’t many television options and comics were cheap. “You could get two and some candy for a quarter,” he grinned. “That was a good start to a great day.” Nostalgia got him reading them again, but he also stumbled upon stories, almost like films, and it became another medium. Comic books had more genres, and there were no budget constraints. A story could include blowing up the earth or a fist fight at the same cost. “Comics are unique in that two people can read the same comic and not feel they read the same story,” Carson said. “When you are telling stories in comics the reader fills in what happens between the panel.” He believes that is why comic readers feel personally attached. “You don’t get that from novels because there is not
patory,” Carson said. “They almost feel they have a hand in the creation of it.” He’s fond of a series called “Fables” and the “Walking Dead,” though he still reads a couple of the Batman books. “Everybody can jump into a Batman book,” Carson said. “No matter what you collect, it should be something you enjoy.”

Evening set to inspire the local arts Group focuses on restoring the Strand
By Stephen Bartlett
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — A community with a vibrant arts community is a real community, says Thomas Hoy. The Chairman and CEO of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company spoke at an evening dedicated to the arts in Plattsburgh Feb. 9. The event was organized by the Partnership for Community Development, which presented Vision2Action, the State of the Arts in Clinton County. The groups mission is to stimulate dialogue and action, grounded in a commitment to the common good. The goal is to generate informed perspectives on such issues as effective planning and coordination of efforts among citizens and key participants in government, civic, and economic institutions that promotes a vision of the fu-

ture. That vision should preserve the region’s assets while cultivating new opportunities. Goals of the Vision2Action program include attracting 3,000 new families to the region by 2040, creating a dynamic and engaged public to address the community’s future, building a welcoming environment for new families and promoting a sense of regional pride. Besides the arts, events planned will focus on recreation, trans-
portation and education. The evening’s events, which were held at Plattsburgh State, included the Cardinal Singers, high school theater groups, a scene from the play “The Pride,” Guibord’s School of Ballet and speakers. “Never giving up is what you need to do if you are going to get to the end of the road,” Hoy said. Downtown Glens Falls was in trouble and a group of businessmen that wanted to revitalize it got
together in 1995. They hired a consultant and identified key buildings that needed to be filled to change the momentum downtown. “We envisioned building a retail area,” Hoy said. “We decided we needed to control those properties and make sure the right thing went into those buildings.” But developers were not interested in being the catalyst to put foot traffic on the street. They wanted the foot traffic to already be there. Eventually, the group was approached about live theater, which, after some talks, turned into a vision of a theater with roughly 300 seats. In 2000 the Charles R. Wood Theater was presented to the public and it opened in 2004. “It was one thing to build a theater, and a wholly different thing to operate it,” Hoy said. “We decided to rent the theater out to local and outside groups. “There are booking agents looking for venues throughout the area.”
All sorts of diverse productions pass through the Charles R. Wood Theater. And there is foot traffic on the street now. “We are making progress,” Hoy said. “If we were gonna save our central business district, we had to give people reason to come to our downtown community.” Locally, efforts have been under way for several years now to renovate and reopen the Strand Theater in downtown Plattsburgh. “If you have a location like the Strand, where people can perform on a regular basis, it changes things like you wouldn’t believe,” Hoy said. CVPH Medical Center CEO and President Stephens Mundy said the Strand would help attract professionals to the area. “It’s a game-changer to show the Strand.” Less than $1 million needs to be raised to finish restoring the Strand. “We want to be able to open this in summer of next year,” Mundy said.
University celebrates W.E.B. DuBois for Black History Month P L AT T S B U R G H — T h e spirit and voice of seminal American black leader W.E.B. Du Bois will come alive Feb. 16 at SUNY Plattsburgh, with a special performance of song and prose. The program is part of Black History Month celebrations in the North Country.
Du Bois, who died on the eve of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech, was the leading black intellectual activist of the early 20th Century, co-founded the Niagara Movement, which later evolved into the NAACP. On Thursday evening Feb.
16, Dr. MaryNell Morgan will offer her celebration of Du Bois, in what she terms a "Participatory Performance," as she sings and recites passages from the Sorrow Songs featured in his best known work, "The Souls of Black Folk." "There are many reasons to celebrate Dr. Du Bois during
Black History Month and throughout the year," said Dr. Morgan, a singer-scholar who teaches at the Empire State College in Saratoga Springs. "Among those reasons is his work to preserve and promote the music of Black folk." Du Bois, the first black man to win a Ph.D. from Harvard,
used bars of music from traditional spirituals--which he called “sorrow songs”-- as epitaphs for the fourteen essays in "The Souls of Black Folk." The program is cosponsored by the North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association and the Center for Diversity,
Pluralism and Inclusion at the SUNY Plattsburgh. It is free and open to the public, at 6 p.m. in the Cardinal Lounge, Angell Hall, on the University Campus. For more information, call 834-5180 or go to: www.northcountryundergroundrailroad.com.

A taste of Africa offered during Black History Month NOW PLAYING
The event is one of several Plattsburgh State’s Multicultural Alliance is offering students and the public during Black History Month email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — Mandazi filled one plate, East African fried breads, similar to doughnuts and eaten with tea or coffee for breakfast or a snack anytime. A plate nearby held Nyama Choma, a roasted meat popular in Eastern Africa that features an innovative use of curry powder. Fried eggplant, a recipe from Andalusia, features touches of honey and mint. “I have never tried these foods before,” said Plattsburgh State student Alivia Cocchi. “It is so cool to try new things. It increases our awareness of other cultures.” The Multicultural Alliance at Plattsburgh State offered to students and the public “A Taste of Africa Food Tasting” as part of events held throughout February to honor Black History Month. “We put on a series of events that promote Black History Month, and all the events are free, and today is ‘A Taste of Africa Food Tasting,’” said Josephine Gonzalez, organization develop-
ment coordinator for the Multicultural Alliance. Black History Month is a national annual observance for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It originated in 1926 as “Negro History Week.” February was chosen because it marked the birthdays of two Americans who greatly influenced the lives and social condition of African Americans: former President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass. The Multicultural Alliance at Plattsburgh State is hosting an array of events for the public during February, including soul food night, poetry jams, a presentation on the “N” word, and a film series and discussion. “This food is all from different parts of Africa,” said Gonzalez as members of the Multicultural Alliance handed out food to those who passed by. “This gives people a taste of Africa and makes them more aware of the culture. It also draws people in so we can explain what is going on during Black History

Month.” And on a small campus in a rural, largely white area, it provides students of color the opportunity to talk about their culture. “Our goal is to reach out of our norms,” Gonzalez said. People don't have to be
black to celebrate Black History Month, she stressed. “I believe this helps people step out of their comfort zone, and that promotes what diversity and inclusion means.” Emily Blair, a Plattsburgh State student, tried every
dish available at “A Taste of Africa Food Tasting.” “These were definitely things I never tasted,” she said. “It was all really delicious and new to me. “It is about increasing awareness of different cultures.”

Infrastructure key to healthy communities Whitney Houston: A tragic ending to a shining star
s they say in the lottery, you have to pay in order to play. This is also true when it comes to maintaining the infrastructure of a municipality. In order to make it attractive to potential businesses, investors and residents, you have to pay. Recently, the town of Elizabethtown held a public forum on the creation of its sewer system. Supervisor Margaret “Maggie” Bartley has stated that she feels a municipal wastewater facility is needed in order to bring new businesses to the area, using the examples of a car wash or a laundry mat. According to the information given at the meeting, a new sewer system would come with a price tag of around $364 annually for a typical one-family home located in the new district. We believe that improving the infrastructure of a community is crucial in attracting business and residents, and we applaud voters of the proposed sewer district for having the forward thinking to approve this project when it went to vote in July 2010. Elizabethtown is a town that many commute to for work at the county offices or school, and would be an ideal place for a car wash or laundry mat, along with an expanded offering of other services, like food and recreation. It’s like the phrase from Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.” And if they come, the $364 is going to go down as an increase of system users and an increase of tax base will lessen the burden on everyone. We urge residents to approve easements on their properties to help make the $9.5 million system a reality. Along with the development of infrastructure, there is also the price that comes to keep infrastructure maintained. You can either be proactive about it or wait to pay the piper. In Westport, the town is paying for numerous infractions at the town highway garage, which was described by town supervisor Daniel Connell as a facility that is obsolete even if it is brought into compliance with state regulations. Town officials are also looking to renovate their current home, known as the WADA Building, and members of the fire department continue to work in what they describe as an obso-
lete building. Voters balked at a proposed multi-use facility last summer, and the trickle of violations at these run down, obsolete facilties will cost thousands in repairs and fines. This tidal wave of expenses is already starting to be felt. Instead of being proactive when it came to the chance to update infrastructure, the voters of the town chose instead to delay the inevitable in the hopes that a cheaper alternative could be found. The lack of forward thinking by these voters is now going to cost even more in the long run, while community needs remain unmet. We are urging Elizabethtown voters to not make the same mistake. A highly functioning infrastructure also helps with the image of a town and the self esteem of its residents. People can take pride in the fact that they have resources that work and provide an avenue for improvement, instead of always hearing about Department of Environmental Conservation Consent Orders that come with lofty fines. At the same time, there are also cases in which too much infrastructure was put in place, and redundancy exists. For example, Keeseville is considering dissolving its village government and merging it with the towns of Chesterfield and Ausable. If such a consolidation can save taxpayers the cost of occupying a village hall or village highway garage, than it is certainly worth exploring. That savings can then be reinvested in the remaining infrastructure, ensuring the two towns do not find themselves in a situation like Westport. Ultimately it is up to town leaders to have the foresight to offer plans that will benefit the community in the most cost effective way to taxpayers for years to come. That’s what is on the drawing table in Elizabethtown. Without it, our municipalities will continue to dwindle in numbers as businesses evaporate forcing residents to seek employment elsewhere.

Benefit of the doubt over judgement I
squeeze with close to enough strength as it needed. He was studied in the womb and born in Boston, cared for at Boston Children's Hospital for a bit, where at 10-months-old he underwent open-heart surgery. It was the medical professionals at Boston Children's Hospital who discovered Samuel had 1 p36 Deletion Syndrome. The congenital genetic disorder is characterized by moderate to severe intellectual disability, delayed growth, hypotonia, seizures, limited speech ability, malformations, and hearing and vision impairment. The condition is caused by a genetic deletion on the outermost band on the short arm of chromosome 1. Samuel is now 5 and attends kindergarten at Champlain Valley
wonder why people are often so quick to judge what they don't understand. Maybe they believe in that moment they do understand, but more often than not, they do not, and they hastily judge without enough knowledge or facts to support their conclusion. And even if they did have the knowledge and the facts, why judge anyway. Maybe I shouldn't be quick to judge about those who do judge, because over the years I have been guilty of judging myself. I've tried hard not to judge, and the birth of my son helped me with that immensely. Samuel Benoit Bartlett was a medical oddity from the beginning, as his heart beat far too quickly in the womb and didn't
From the Editor’s Desk Educational Services. And it never fails that, out in public, someone passes judgement on myself, Samuel or both. I was in McDonalds once and an elderly couple spoke very
loudly about how he was too old to be using a cup with a nipple. Samuel is not developmentally 5, in fact, in many areas he is not yet a year old. On more than one occasion at the mall or Walmart, someone wondered aloud why I don't let him walk on his own. Samuel cannot walk yet, and may never walk without assistance. He doesn't even crawl, though he is rather cute when he scoots on his but across the room. People have also made comments about his lack of speech, equating it to neglect by me. Samuel may never utter more than a few words, relying on his own form of crude sign language to communicate. I'm not the only person who has experienced such judgement.
It happens all the time. People come across something they don't understand and instead of accepting they just might not understand everything, they pass judgement. These judgements not only cause pain, but given the reality of the situation, they are often obnoxious. So maybe next time you see something you don't quite understand and which possibly even rubs you the wrong way, hold back on the judgement and instead extend the benefit of the doubt that it is not as it seems and you simply, do not understand.

show as one side of the room is hootin’ and hollerin’ like the Dog Pound on the Arsenio Hall show (Google it, young ones) while the other half appears to be at the opera. It almost makes me wonder if people are even listening when the President speaks, or if they are just programmed to stand and applaud only because the president is a member of their party. If he is not, they fold their arms and sneer. The fact is, I fully want a moderate as president. I don’t want someone who will only listen to half the room. Every candidate is going to have a flaw in the eye of someone, but the ability to think freely and make rational, non-partisan decisions should not be a flaw in the mind of anybody.

Fire Department to donate defibrillator Donation made in honor of commissioner’s brother
By Katherine Clark
firstname.lastname@example.org PERU— The Peru Fire department will donate a defibrillator to the town in memory of the former fire department chief ’s brother. Chief Brian Westover of the Peru Fire Department, on behalf of the Peru Fire Department, will donate an automated external defibrillator (AED), in memory of Craig Tetrault. Craig was the brother of Courtney Tetrault, Fire Department Commissioner and former fire chief. After Craig’s death in August due to heart
failure, donations were made in his memory for the fire department to purchase a AED. In the event of a heart attack or abnormal arythmia, an AED can be used to help someone by delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the affected heart. Family and friends of Tetrault’s donated about $1,400 to the fire department for the purchase of the AED through memorial donations made to the fire department from friends and family of Craig Tetrault. Westover said Courtney Tetrault wanted his brother ’s memory to be honored by bringing heart health equipment to the community. “Courtney wanted to see something done to promote or save cardiac health in the community,” Westover said. The AED will be kept at the athletic fields
during spring sport season and during the winter months it will be kept at the Peru Town Hall. In the event the AED must be used, responders are able to use them successfully with little, or in some cases, no training at all to help someone having a heart arythmia. Westover said the instructions on the equipment allows the device to be used by any one in the case of an emergency. “We’ve been lucky that we havent had to use one down on the field but as the athletic programs grow and more parents are coming out on the field it’s better to be prepared,” Peru Supervisor Peter Glushko said. Currently the town of Peru has one AED at the highway department Glushko said and the new AED should be on the field as
the spring athletics begin. “As soon as we get all our training requirements out of the way we will take possession of the defibrillator,” Glushko said. “We want to make sure everything is properly documented and we have to have a doctor who sponsors our program.” The town must have a doctor who documents any use of the defibrillator and monitors its maintenance before the town can accept the AED, Glushko said. Glushko said he was grateful for the fire department’s donation to the town, but noted he hopes that it doesn’t have to be used. “It’s a piece of equipment you hopefully never have to use, but if you do need to use it you want it to be there,” Glushko said.

• Give your home a makeover. Now’s the time to tackle an interior home repair. Painting a room a new color or even installing ceramic or stick-down tiles can give a room a new look and keep a person busy for an entire weekend.
People accustomed to spending time outdoors can grow restless when winter weather sets in for the season. After the novelty of the first few snowstorms wears off, many find themselves tired of being cooped up and begin dreaming of warmer weather. In addition to general restlessness, cabin fever can cause sluggishness, weight gain and changes in sleep patterns due to inactivity. There are some remedies that can zap cabin fever, however. • Get moving. Being a couch potato can lead to weight gain and feelings of despression. Make strides to exercise or do something that gets the heart pumping for at least 30 minutes every day. This can include hosting a family dance off, firing up the gaming console for a round of virtual reality sports action, hopping on the treadmill or stationary bike, or any other activity that raises the heart rate.
• Visit the craft store. Visit a nearby craft store to stock up on items that foster creativity indoors for hours on end. Acrylic paints and plaster molds are an entertaining hobby. Avid knitters can spend time whipping up a new hat or scarf and glove set. Kids may find that scrapbooking or simply creating collages from magazine photos with scissors and paste is entertaining.
• Play in the snow. Snow shoveling can certainly be a task that some prefer to avoid, but playing in the snow can be a fun activity for any age. Dress warmly and head outdoors to build a snow fort or engage in a game of snowball tossing.
• Do some spring cleaning. Spring is right around the corner, so use time spent indoors to get a head start on organizational projects. Clean out a closet or room that might have grown clutter over the winter.
• Have a family game night. Host a night each week when the entire family gathers to play a game. It makes a welcome alternative to watching TV. • Learn to cook. Use time indoors to prepare meals in advance or experiment with new recipes. • Visit a museum. Now’s the time to explore places in the area (or schedule a road trip) that are just perfect when the weather isn’t. • Host a party. Just for the fun of it, invite friends and family over for a party to beat cabin fever. • Head to the movies. Watching a movie on the big screen can be a change from watching TV at home.
When you put your mind to it, it’s possible to think of dozens of ways to cure cabin fever!
• Take daily walks. As long as sidewalks or paths are passable, head outdoors and stroll the neighborhood. It’s amazing what sights can be missed when one is whizzing by in a car. Enjoy the snow-covered landscape before heading back for some hot chocolate.

from page 1 The mission of the United Way, which serves Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, is to be a leader in community partnership building and to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another. The funds raised from the campaign will be allocated to local community partner agencies based on donor designations and agency applications for additional funds. A committee of community members review requests for undesignated funds and recommends to the board of directors the awarding of grants based upon prioritized community needs throughout the region. “All the funds stay local and go toward supporting critical services for our friends and neighbors here in the North Country,” said Kirk Stallsmith, President of the United Way Board of Directors. Bernardi explained that many of the programs funded are through non-profit health and human services agencies. There are some smaller organizations that do rely on United Way funds, such as Compassionate Friends of the North Country. Dan Alexander, Publisher of Denton Publications, stressed that without the United Way these organizations would have to conduct their own fundraisers and funnel money into such efforts. “They wouldn’t be able to accomplish nearly as much.” In addition to funding 39 health and human service organizations in the region, the United Way coordinates a wide variety of programs, including Earned Income Tax Credit, Information and Referral, Disaster Recovery and Volunteerism. “The team left no stone unturned,” Morrow said of the 2012 fundraising team. “We are gonna carry this into next year.” The next campaign will be chaired by Gayle Alexander of Denton Publications. She served as vice chair for this year ’s drive. “United Way is such a dynamic organization,” Alexander said. “Everyone is giving from their heart, and that is what the United Way is all about. “It’s amazing how people come through. That’s what the United Way is about. It’s about people helping people.”

Students discuss why they chose Plattsburgh State Students list a variety of reasons for choosing to attend PSUC By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh State was the only stop on Jake Vassello’s tour that wasn’t plagued by snow or rain. So he chose to apply to the college. “My parents said they would pay for a SUNY school,” said the Long Island native. Students offered several reasons for choosing Plattsburgh State, including price, location, size and the reputation of the program they were interested in. Vassello is studying criminal justice, sociology and philosophy at Plattsburgh State. The junior may apply to law school, but right now he’s enjoying his time at Plattsburgh State. “I love it here,” he said. “It is a friendly environment, and everyone seems nice. Plus, everything is slower here compared to Long Island.” Plattsburgh State, a four-year, public liberal arts college, was founded in 1889 and opened in 1890. It is part of the State University of New York and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Plattsburgh State enrolls more than 6,200 students. “It was the college in my back yard and the only school I applied to,” said Alexis Harrington, who is studying social work and gender and women studies. Plattsburgh State is located near Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains, a half hour from Burlington, Vt., more than two hours north of Albany and less than 60 miles from Montreal. The main campus consists of 36 buildings on 256 acres. Plattsburgh State offers more than 60 baccalaureate degrees and an array of minors within the divisions of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business and Education, Health and Human Services. Graduate degrees are offered in Education, School Psychology, speech-language pathology and liberal arts. “I have been extremely happy here,” Harrington said. “I am so involved on campus. There is never a dull moment.” She belongs to a sorority that raises money for various causes and is heading to West Virginia where she will help rebuild a community for alternative spring break. “I like the scenery and the closeness here,” Harrington said. “It’s a smaller school, and there is always something to do.” Kristin Vesely traveled to Plattsburgh State from long Island after learning about the reputation of the nursing program. For four consecutive years, Plattsburgh State has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” edition, as one of the top regional public universities in the North.

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh North Stars have scheduled a mandatory Players Meeting for all new and returning players Saturday, February 18, 2012 at 4:00pm. The meeting will take place at the Plattsburgh City Recreation Center located at 52 U.S. Oval.

nized Plattsburgh State among the Top 100 colleges in the nation for the value of its academic quality. “It’s a SUNY school and low tuition,” Vesely said. She’s been happy at Plattsburgh State. She’s made a lot of good friends and met some excellent professors. “It’s a really good environment and a friendly place,” Vesely said. “There is a lot to do with Canada and Vermont nearby.” Njeri Wright wanted to attend a SUNY school and chose Plattsburgh State because of how far it was from her hometown of Brooklyn. “Although, now that I am here I think it is too far.” The junior also heard great things about the English department. “Some of my professors are so good,” Wright said. “The English department lives up to its reputation.” She sometimes wishes there was more school spirit at Plattsburgh State, but she doesn’t regret her choice. “They have done very well.”

Lady Eagles reach Upstate championship game on Stafford ice By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — The Beekmantown girls hockey team was in a familiar spot Feb. 11, playing for an Upstate New York championship. The result, however, was also a familiar one. Playing in front of a home crowd at the Stafford Ice Arena in Plattsburgh, the Lady Eagles suffered a 2-1 loss to the Potsdam Lady Sandstoners in the title game, their fourth consecutive loss in the championship match. “This was the fourth time around for us, and the girls really came out and played hard,” head coach Ray Guay said. “They left their hearts out there on the ice and they did what we thought was their best job in getting to this point in the season and to play the way that they did.” Lexi Guay tied the game at 1-1 with less than a minute left in the second period, only to watch as the ‘Stoners scored on a power play midway through the third. In the final minute, Potsdam goalie Abby Tardelli appeared to be out of position on a

rebound in front of the net, but swung her right leg out just in time to keep what would have been the game-tying goal out of the net.
“She has been haunting us for years,” Guay said of Tardelli. Guay also took a moment to talk about the
commitment and dedication of the seven seniors on his roster, which included goalie Christina Emery, Jess Huber, Caitlyn LaPier, Amanda Kempanien, Bailey Waterbury, Sarah LoTemplio and Kirsten Doran. “They have come through the program from the get-go, and I am sure that this is tough for them not to get the win,” he said. “But this will be things that they will never forget and they have been able to do great things and make friends that they will have for life. They were doing what it takes to get it done.” Guay said the team had met expectations. “Every year, you want to get to the Frozen Four and give yourself a chance by playing in the last game of the season.” The Eagles got to the championship game with a 4-1 win over Alexandria Bay the night before, as Sarah LoTemplio scored twice in the second period and Jess Huber added a goal as they turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead. Lexi Guay added an insurance goal in the final minute of play. Her goals in the Frozen Four were the first of the season for the junior forward. Christina Emery made 12 saves in the win and had a total of 32 saves for the two days.

Sectional titles awarded in wrestling, track, swimming
By Keith Lobdell
email@example.com PERU — It was championship Saturday in Section VII Feb. 11. Wrestling on the home mats, the Peru Indians claimed their third straight Section VII wrestling title, thanks to eight individual championships. At the Plattsburgh State Fieldhouse, the Saranac Chiefs boys and girls indoor track and field teams swept through the team titles with six team members earning individual championships. In Clintonville, the Plattsburgh Hornets broke records as they repeated as the Section VII boys swimming champions.

Wrestling The Peru Indians, trailing in points heading into the championship round, put eight on the top of the podium in earning their third straight sectional team title. The match that had everyone buzzing afterwards, though, was Northern Adirondack’s Hunter Carpenter, who upset top seed Noah Phillips of Peru at 145, scoring a takedown in the final seconds to force overtime before earning five points in the extra frame for the win. “He had a Half Nelson on the wrong side and he got rolled,” Peru head coach Mike Hogan said of the end of the match. “Noah wrestled as hard as he could, and I thought the match was scored right.” “It looked over, but the kid had a lot of heart and didn’t want to lose,” NAC head coach Jamie Gilmore said. Carpenter was still in shock following the match, earning a victory against the undefeated Phillips, who had scored an 11-4 decision and fall over the Bobcat grappler in their previous meetings. “I kept trying and hoped for the best,” Carpenter said. “I was trying to get out and score points, and it just happened. It’s a great feeling.” The Indians scored victories in the first three weight classes, with Ethan Feazelle earning a 3-2 decision over NAC’s Austin Trombley in an exciting opening match at 99. Saranac’s Shawn LaGraves scored an exciting win in the consolation bracket, with a 64 overtime win against Anthony Cartee of Beekmantown. At 106, Kyler Agoney pinned Rusty Pombrio of NAC with just over one minute remaining in the match, while Dylan Baker of AuSable Valley also scored a win by fall to finish in third place. Max Marte scored a pin 1:22 into his championship match against Beekmantown’s Konnor German at 113, with Richard Armstrong of Saranac finishing third, also by fall. Codie Gillette of Saranac broke the Indian streak, scoring a 3-1 decision over Scott Kellett of NAC to earn the 120 title. Ethan Bacon finished third from Beekmantown.
The Indians quickly made their way back to the top of the podium, as Jordan Bushey claimed a 6-0 decision against Saranac’s trevor Goddeau at 126. John Graziane of Beekmantown was third. Former state champion Jacob Goddeau punched his return ticket to Albany with a third round pin of NAC’s Kaleb Sample at 132, with Tyler Myers of Beekmantown finishing third. Nick Forget scored an opening round pin against Matt Carter of NAC for the title at 138, while Dylan Spellman took third. Following the Carpenter upset at 145, Jackson Sunderland scored the middle win in a Bobcat three-match streak with a 6-4 decision against Joe Perry of Saranac. Beekmantown’s Zackery Myers finished in third. Justin Kellett earned the third win for the Bobcats with a third round pin against Dylan Peryea of Beekmantown at 160, while Caleb Feazelle finished in third. Troy Seymour put Peru back atop the podium with a second round pin at 170 against Brandon Defayette of Beekmantown, with James Black of Saranac finishing in third. After scoring a 2-0 decision against top seed Garrett Gero of Northern Adirondack, AuSable Valley’s Matt LaMere was unable to keep the momentum in the finals, dropping an 11-0 major decision to Saranac’s Nate Wood. Gage Bourdeau of Beekmantown scored an 8-2 decision against Gero to finish in third. Saranac’s Ben Perry scored an opening minute pin against Dallas Page of Northern Adirondack to claim the 195 title, with Codie LaPlante of Beekmantown in third. Peru’s Luke McKee was a 7-0 decision winner against Northern Adirondack’s Russell Noel at 220, with Paul Herrera finishing third. In the final match, Beekmantown’s Hayden Head scored a pin against Peru’s Derrick Cumber to earn the 285 championship. Josh Ryan of Saranac was third. The 15 winners will compete in Albany Feb. 24-25 at the NYSPHSAA state champi-
onships. “Last year we had a more experienced group, but we didn’t quite perform the way that we wanted to,” Hogan said. “Hopefully, we will have a good two weeks of practice and get a little more production this time around.”
Track and Field
The Plattsburgh High Hornets scored a 416 points in capturing the Section VII/X team title in the AuSable Valley pool, with five first place finishes. Matt Evans was a part of four of the five Hornet wins, placing first in the 50 free and 100 free along with joining Nick Prenoveau, Mike Torner and Nate Leopard to win the 200 free relay; then teaming with Leopard, Josh LaBounty and Spencer Hall to win the 400 free relay. Torner also scored a win in the 200 medley relay, joined by Austin Spooner, Nathan Emery and Robbie Hartman. Dan McGovern, the lone swimmer for Beekmantown, scored a pair of wins in the 200 medley and 100 butterfly. The AuSable Valley Patriots, who finished in second at the meet as a team, got wins from Ben Ford in the 500 free and 100 backstroke, along with a 200 free and 100 breaststroke title from Hank McCormick. Franklin Academy finished third in team points, while McGovern scored a total of 32 points as the lone Eagle.
The Saranac boys and girls teams earned the top spots in their respective meets to capture sectional championships. Peru and Ticonderoga rounded out the podium in the boys meet, while Peru and Saranac did the same in the girls. Micah Patterson scored three wins for the Chiefs in the boys meet, with titles in the 1,000, 600 and as a member of the 4-by-400 relay. Saranac also scored wins in the 4-by-160 relay and in shot put behind the arm of Corey Duval. Peru’s (and soon to be Syracuse’s) Dan Lennon scored wins in the 1,600, 3,200 and as a member of the 4-by-800 relay team, while Indian Shawn Hendrix was the winner in the tripple jump and long jump. Bryce Schnaars scored a win in the high jump, beating out AuSable Valley’s Paul Ford. Alex Beaudoin scored a pair of wins for the Saranac Lake Red Storm, earning the top of the podium in the 300 and the 55.

Peru student to run for Syracuse University Dan Lennon signs letter of intent for Syracuse University By Katherine Clark
firstname.lastname@example.org PERU—The chase is over for stand out cross country runner Dan Lennon. The Peru Central School senior has committed to run for Syracuse University. Lennon, the number one runner in the state for a class B school, signed his letter of intent in a special ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 7 in the school auditorium to attend Syracuse University and run for their cross country team. “We want to make it clear how proud we are of you,” Peru Athletic Director Larry Ewald said. “Dan is the essence of leadership and he has exemplified leadership in our school.” Lennon was joined on stage by his parents Dan Sr. and Betsy Lennon, cross country coaches Mike Francia and Alison Provost, and Ewald. Provost said the sky is the limit for Lennon because he is driven, self disciplined and a natural runner. “He’s fearless, as far as going against top competition, he’s disappointed when they aren’t entered,” Francia said after the conference. “He wants to race against the best people to measure himself and see how far he’s come.” As Lennon signed his letter of intent, his fellow classmates cheered him on as he continued through the three copies of every

form he had to fill out. One student cheered “Just breath Dan, you can do this” from where he and the other members of the senior class sat in the auditorium. After signing his letters of intent, Lennon addressed his classmates, teachers, coaches and family and thanked everyone for their support and encouragement. “Thank you for your support in me, it’s meant a lot to have the support of my peers and thank you to my coaches for helping me increase my speed,” Lennon said. Choosing Syracuse was an easy decision
Red Cross from page 1 new location on Emory Street in Morrisonville. “Hopefully the transition will be seamless to the community.” Roberts, who is retiring, spent the past 25 years as Executive Director of the North Country Chapter of the American Red Cross. She will work part time until April to help Gilbert as she steps into her new role. Gilbert grew up in Saranac Lake and earned a bachelor ’s degree in English from Plattsburgh State, as well as a master ’s in administration and leadership. She was chosen by a selection committee after a competitive application process that included multiple interviews. “I’ve always been involved with philanthropy projects,” Gilbert said. “I’ve always done fundraising. “I just always wanted to help the community.” She learned that from her parents, participating in community cleanup day and getting her involved in the community.
Lennon said, after he had a chance to visit the campus and meet the track team. Originally Lennon said he was torn among Syracuse, Wisconsin University and SUNY Oneonta. Both Oneonta and Wisconsin have award winning cross country teams and great academic programs but Syracuse had the winning combination. Lennon said it was the mixture of great academic programs and his future team that helped him decide on Syracuse. He plans to major in public policy. “The classes they had at Syracuse and the
prestige of their actual academics made it my ultimate decision and I really loved the team,” Lennon said. Provost and Francia said though they are loosing their top runner at the end of the year they hope Lennon’s hard work and discipline will inspire up and coming athletes to strive to achieve number one. “His experience shows other kids if they work hard they can achieve anything,” Provost said.
“It’s the way I was raised,” Gilbert said. “It feels right to have the opportunity to give back.” She’s always wanted to make a difference, and the opportunity to earn a living doing that is priceless. “The Red Cross represents so much,” Gilbert said. “It’s a symbol known around the world.” Gilbert wants to start fresh with new ideas. She’s looking into youth development and wants to further engage the community. She also wants to get out into Franklin County more. “Those townships need to know we are a part of them.” Gilbert hopes for an increase in volunteers. “I want to get people more active and knowing we are alive and well,” Gilbert said. She’s been out meeting people, including area lawmakers, and is open to outside ideas. “We want to move forward, onward and upward.” Pictured at right: Lynn Gilbert stands outside the Morrisonville offices of the North Country Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Barbershop “It's very gratifying, very satisfying to hear those chords ring,” he said. Hurd said aside from Maglienti, he's recruited five or so more members for the group, and the time demands of group membership, though modest, can be a hard sell. “They're concerned about whether or not they can sing, but if they can carry a tune, they'll do just fine,” said Hurd. “You're putting your voice out there for examination, and you're never sure it's right on.” He, too, was slow in coming around to full-fledged membership. The group piqued his interest in the late '70s, but his kids were too young for personal pursuits like that. When they were off to elementary school, he joined up for awhile, but high school came along for his kids and he again had no time. Since they graduated though, he's been able to do his own thing. And, he said, being in the chorus keeps him young. “Singing's healthy. Many times I'll go to rehearsal and I'll just be dead tired. But after 45 minutes of singing the energy is just pumped up,” said Hurd. All the oxygen pushed in and out of his lungs is invigorating, he said. Many of the chorus men are able to participate as long as they're able to walk. Those who come to rehearsal don't have to join, unless they want to go out to perform at venues with the chorus, like singing for the Irishman of the Year ceremony for the Chamber of Commerce or the county fair. The chorus is a source for quartets, though they only have one quartet right now, said Maglienti. Even one is a generous estimate, said Hurd. The lead for their quartet bought a home in Arizona, though he comes back once in awhile. When he does, there's a functioning quartet. In the '60s and '70s whentheir enrollment was at its largest, they drew on the population from the Air Force. The Nashvillebased parent group of the Cumberland Bay Chorus, The Barbershop Harmony Society, hosts international competitions. At their peak enrollment, the local chapter placed high in the Eastern Seabord district. Find more info at CumberlandBay.org.

The term Property under the Tax Type column means City and County land taxes, delinquent City refuse, water and sewer bills and any special assessments. 2. The foregoing List of Delinquent Taxes is a list of the Delinquent Taxes filed with the Clinton County Clerk s Office for the above referenced tax years. 3. The Amount Due listed in Schedule A is the delinquent tax for tax year January 1st, 2010, and prior tax years as noted in the Tax Year column. It is the amount due for those delinquent taxes as of November 29th, 2011. These amounts are subject to change for additions of notice, filing and legal charges required and allowed by the foreclosure proceeding along with the addition of monthly interest accruing on the 15th day of each month during the foreclosure process. All unpaid or delinquent taxes for tax years after 2010 are required to be paid in addition to the amounts listed in Schedule A to redeem
the parcels from the foreclosure proceeding. To confirm the amount to be paid to redeem a parcel of real property from all tax liens, please contact the City Chamberlain by calling 518-563-7704 or email inquiries addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. 4. To redeem a property, in addition to the Amount Due, the taxpayer is required to pay "charges" or "legal charges" which means: (a) the cost of the mailing or service of notices required or authorized by this article; (b) the cost of publication of notices required or authorized by this article; (c) the amount of any interest and penalties imposed by law; (d) the cost of recording or filing legal documents required or authorized by this article; and (e) the reasonable and necessary cost of any search of the public record required or authorized to satisfy the notice requirements of this article, and the reasonable and necessary expenses for legal services of a tax district in connection with a proceeding to foreclose a tax lien. See: ยง 1102 Real Prop. Tax Law 5. If the above tax parcels are subject to taxes that became liens after the above listed tax years, the liens must be redeemed in reverse chronological order, so that the lien with the most recent lien date is redeemed first, and the lien with the earliest lien date is redeemed last. The enforcement process shall proceed as long as the earliest lien remains unredeemed. See ยง 1112 Real Prop. Tax Law.
