Students’ experiment for NASA out of this world By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — When it comes to science experiments, one group of students has come up with one of astronomical proportions. Students of Wendy Demane’s aerospace engineering class at Plattsburgh High School have been selected to participate in a nationwide competition to further the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s mission to explore outer space. Kendrick Buchala, Kevin Neiderer, Christina Souliere and Ben Vanvalkenburg — who recently transferred to the Peru Central School District but will still participate in the experiment — will be

on their way to the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, next week with a potential solution to a problem facing astronauts — stomach aches. Demane said the students came up with the idea last September after she found the competition on-line and asked them what they would be interested in researching. “When we first started, we didn’t know what we were going to do,” said Neiderer. The four knew they needed to research something that would have a “real world application,” said Demane. Through local physician Dr. James DeLucas, an aerospace medicine specialist, the students were put in touch

Honoring Myron POW’s committment to service recognized By Michael O’Keefe Special to Denton Publications PLATTSBURGH — How long would you wait for a loved one? A day? A year? How about 59 years? That’s how long Ethel Bick has been waiting for her husband, Myron, to receive his Purple Heart, which he earned during the Korean War. Ethel’s wait was over as she was recently presented the medal in her husband’s honor in a ceremony at Lakeview Towers. The surprise ceremony, which Ethel was led to believe was going to be a birthday celebration, was attended by local military and veteran officials, as well as family, friends and people who wanted to pay their respects.

the ‘burgh

Myron was one of many who became prisoners or war, known as POWs, during the Korean War, and never returned. “When they were captured at Chuan-Li, it was in November,” Ethel said. “There was no food.” Ethel said her husband, who was a veteran by the time he got to Korea, already had health problems from past wars. “He had trench foot from World War II,” Ethel said. “He had two bronze stars; one in WWII and one in Korea.” Ethel said her husband earned one of the stars when he hurled two hand grenades into enemy territory, all the while exposing his position on open ground. “He loved the service,” Ethel said. “He was

Event remembers lives lost in Holocaust By Michael O’Keefe Special to Denton Publications PLATTSBURGH — We shall never forget — that’s the rallying call of the organizers of the annual Holocaust Remembrance Event at State University of New York at Plattsburgh. “The purpose of [the event] is part of the educational mission of Plattsburgh State,” said professor Dr. Jonathan Slater, who will be speaking at the event. Slater said the event is a commemoration of the Holocaust, with poems, songs and speeches regarding the genocide of millions. “We’ve been doing this for about two decades now,” Slater said. “It is open to everybody — free of charge.” The event will feature guest

speakers and musicians from the area, as well as Mary Borell, board chair of the Florida Holocaust Museum. “We want to make students aware that we are entering into a very unique time when it comes to Holocaust remembrance,” said Borell. “The challenge we face is how do we make the story and the lessons relevant to the generations that didn’t live through [the Holocaust]?” Borell is an experience Holocaust historian, who spent time in Eastern Europe, traveling to the concentration camps and educating the population about what happened to those who survived and those who did not. Borell said as the first generation survivors pass away, the second generation becomes the story-

tellers. “The second generation are not as passionate as the first generation,” said Borell. “We’re really at a significant crossroads.” The event will include the dedication of the Douglas R. Skopp Creative Competition, which will be an annual event dedicated to the retired Plattsburgh State professor. Skopp, who is currently the university’s historian, is “long overdue for naming the competition after him,” according to Borell. The event will take place at 4 p.m. in the Krinovitz Recital Hall on Beekman Street this Thursday, April 15. For more information, call 5642090. Michael O’Keefe is an intern with the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Colleges for Change to put on dinner and a show this Saturday By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — Colleges for Change has a reason to celebrate. The organization — whose mission is to change the social acceptability of tobacco on college campuses and surrounding communities — is celebrating the recent decision by the city of Plattsburgh to establish a tobacco-free policy in its 17 parks and beaches. The celebration? A “Dinner and Dance” this Saturday, April 17, to benefit the Plattsburgh Community Garden. Kimberly Cummins, who is planning the event on behalf of Colleges for Change, said the idea has received a lot of support from local bands and the people behind the two venues, the North Country Co-op on Bridge Street and Coffee Camp on Margaret Street. The night will begin with a “vegan and vegetarian friendly” dinner at the Co-op at 4 p.m., prepared by the Co-op’s own chef, Rich Green. The dinner will consist of spaghetti with miso beet sauce or cashew burgers with soup and salad.

the ‘burgh

“It’s just amazing,” Cummins said about the menu. “I can’t say enough.” During the dinner, which will be offered until 7 p.m., musical entertainment will be provided by bands Ginge and the Giants and Damaged Jackals. “It’ll be good dinner music, where you can eat and talk with your friends and it’s not overpowering,” said Cummins. The celebration will pick up when it picks up and moves to Coffee Camp around the corner at 7 p.m. There, music by For the Kid in the Back, Precious Fluids, and Choking Beaver Project will round out the night until 10 p.m. The cost of the dinner will be a suggested donation of $5-10. A $2-5 donation is requested for the Coffee Camp show. Cummins said Dinner and Dance will be a nice way to cap off the Earth Day celebration events in the city hosted by the Every Day Earth Day Committee, which include a city-wide clean-up. “I know the last thing I would want to do is cook dinner,” Cummins said with a laugh.

Rock Against Rape rockin’ its fourth year

Fundraiser happening this Saturday at the Monopole By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — Rock Against Rape, a sexual assault awareness fundraiser, is gearing up for its fourth year. This year ’s event, which coincides with Sexual Assault Awareness Month, will be held this Saturday, April 17, from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Monopole, 7 Protection Ave. Planned Parenthood of the North Country New York’s vice president of external affairs, Martha Fuller Stahl, said the event is held to raise awareness and funds for the organization’s sexual assault services program. “It’s been building momentum over the last couple of years,” said Fuller Stahl. Fuller Stahl said the first Rock Against Rape was actually held at Koffee Kat as an open mic kind of event.


“Since then, it’s really evolved,” she said. “We’ve got great bands and it’s going to be an event that the bands are really excited about doing.” The bands on the playlist for this year are Josh Cramoy Band, Eat.Sleep.Funk., Shameless Strangers, Filming Ohio, and Flip the Bus. Aside from music, Fuller Stahl said there will be trivia and information provided about sexual assault. “Letting people know that the majority

of sexual assaults are not a stranger in an alley, but are people you know,” she explained. “Talking to people about looking out for their friends and raising awareness about date rape drugs.” “It’s not going to be a super-heavy educational event,” Fuller Stahl added. “It’s sort of mixing up that educational stuff with fun.” Although the event raises funds for PPNCNY, Fuller Stahl hopes that won’t discourage people from coming who may be against the other services they provide. “The proceeds of the event are to benefit just our sexual assault services directly,” she explained. “We have a 24hour hotline that people who are survivors of sexual assault can call, we offering counseling and referrals and do advocacy work.” “We’re really the only people in the area offering those services,” Fuller Stahl added. A $5 donation is suggested for the event.

Experiment From page 4 with DeLucas’ brother, astronaut Dr. Lawrence DeLucas, former chief scientist for the International Space Station. Through the DeLucas brothers, the students learned indigestion is a common problem for astronauts. The students then spoke with local physician Dr. Kathleen Camelo, who detailed the physiology of the stomach and human digestive process. “That helped us understand some of the issues,” said Demane. “We realized digestion has a lot to do with gravity, the way it works on the food as it moves up and down. We thought if there were no gravity there would be issues and indeed there are.” Using the wealth of information they received, the students designed an experiment involving a simple machine to test the digestive process

under normal gravitational circumstances. The process involved taking a typical meal for an astronaut, such as cheese, crackers and applesauce, and blending the foods with water to create a “slurry.” The slurry was then injected into a water bottle, simulating a human stomach, and was monitored by the students to get a concept of gravity’s effect on digestion. “We videotaped it and, with the software we have, were able to slow the process down frame by frame,” said Buchala. “That way, we could see how the food dispersed.” The students collected the data as part of their formal report for NASA, before preparing their simple machine to be used in a zerogravity tower at the Glenn Research Center. “We’re going to bring it up in the tower and drop it. As the box drops, gravity will not be able to act on it,”

very military-oriented.” Steve Bowman, director of the Clinton County Veterans Service Agency, was one of the people who assisted the ceremony, and was the person who actually handed over the Purple Heart to Ethel. “This means the world to her, and this means a lot me to be able to be a part of presenting this Purple Heart,” Bowman said. Although the occasion should be joyous, Bowman said it is also a reminder of those POWs who were never found. And, to this day, Myron’s remains have not been found. Ethel said she would make it her final mission to find and lay Myron to rest. With organizations around the world that help people find POWs and those missing in action, Bowman said people like Ethel should “never give up.” Michael O’Keefe is an intern with the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

explained Neiderer, referring to the simulated digestive process. The result, said Buchala, will be entered into a final report for NASA officials, which has the potential for scientists to better understand the problem of indigestion in outer space. “We’re not really going for the solution, we’re going for the data,” he said. Buchala and his peers were among only four teams selected to directly test an experiment in the zero-gravity tower. Another eight teams were able to submit experiments to be handled by NASA officials. “It was a lot of hours in the shop,” said Souliere, “but it was worth it.” “Definitely worth it,” added Buchala. “We’re glad to be able to make a contribution.” The students will leave for Cleveland Sunday, April 18, returning Wednesday, April 21.

We know that many local businesses and service professionals in our communities are having a difficult time right now due to the economy.

Our competitors are right, in one respect, now is the time to strengthen your brand to gain the competitive advantage.

We don’t see it as our job to challenge you to find a solution on your own so that you can spend money, that is in short supply, to support our publication.

While our competitors are shrinking, we are taking this opportunity to expand. First, we’ve introduced a new publication, The Burgh, mailed to every home in the City & Town of Plattsburgh and the former Air Base.

And we know, you know, this is not the time to be complacent, nor a time to put your head in the sand protecting what you have built up. You know how much harder you’ve had to work on much shorter margins, if any, to keep customers coming through door.

Last week, we merged the Clinton County Free Trader Today and the North Countryman into a newly re-designed, modular format, reaching over 16,000 Clinton County homes via the United States Postal Service.

We view our job as providing realistic solutions to address your needs. We know we’ve got to find ways to stream line our business and cut our rates so that your business can, cost effectively, find the dollars to invest in continuing their marketing plans.

The combined circulation of The Burgh & the North Countryman is over 36,000 in Clinton County alone, which is nearly twice the distribution of the local daily in a three county area. As one advertiser recently told us when looking at the overwhelming

April 15-21, 2010

response to his coupon offering, “It’s exactly what I expected, when you mail the paper to so many homes… The results were tremendous!” Next month we will merge our Northern Essex County publications, the Valley News and the Tri-Lakes Free Trader Today into the same new format and using the USPS to deliver the new Valley News to over 19,000 homes.

community, who in turn will support your business. We’ve taken the first steps to make this happen. We hope you’ll join us in saying enough is enough. It’s time to start rebuilding local business traffic!

By converting to a modular design, we reduce the amount of paper and postal weight, thus allowing us to adjust our rates. Your marketing representative has all the details on how you can use all this to your advantage. We know nothing gets better for our local economy until we all start spending our dollars supporting each other. We’ll get your valuable message delivered to the whole
