CVES forced to cut more positions




This Week




By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH – Officials at Champlain Valley Educational Services knew some time ago they would once again be forced to cut positions as local school officials pulled back special education students to save money. Still, the numbers are jolting, a total of 84 layoffs approved from February 2012 until June 2012. “Those are all employees who will not be returning as of Sept. 1,” said Rachel Rissetto, CVES director of human services. Roughly a year ago, CVES was forced to eliminate 93.5

M. Dyland Raskin is at work on his third memoir.

PLATTSBURGH — The rage that fueled M. Dylan Raskin at 22 is fading, as those sporadic spurts of his signature hostility toward the people he loathed become an increasing rarity. That might discourage fans who connected with the author ’s rants against walking clichés and the seemingly endless lack of inspiration in the world. Fortunately for them, Raskin is still able to hurl verbal resentment at the injustices he sees around him while being at peace with his place in an increasingly unstable world he’s once again writing about. “Any given day in Plattsburgh is so rich with material,” said the author of “Little New York Bastard” and “Bandanas & October Supplies.” “A lot occurs in this small town, and it would be foolish to let all of this go untold.”

Raskin once had much to be angry about, growing up in Queens, surrounded by people he detested without the guidance of his father, who had passed suddenly. His first memoir, published in 2003 by Four Walls Eight Windows, detailed a lost, angry young man who briefly leaves New York City and his mother for Chicago in search of inspiration and anonymity. His second memoir, published in 2006 by Avalon, tells the story of a young man who has a nervous breakdown as he bounces from place to place with his mother, who actually passed a few months before after an agonizing battle with ovarian cancer. The book culminated with Raskin unstable, exhausted and in the hospital for three days. Raskin eventually ended up with his dog Esme in Plattsburgh where he has become co-owner of Koffee Kat on Wheels. He hasn’t published since his last book, though he writes for himself in a small space in the back corner of his attic apartment.

PLATTSBURGH — They sat quietly in the classroom and talked about the earth. They discussed the healthy vegetables the earth produces and learned about the life cycle of a plant.


Code: TBSE12T

Then they got their hands dirty, and were up to their elbows in soil, planting their own vegetables as their teacher took the classroom lesson outside. “We are making salad baskets to go home with all the students,” explained Nichole Julian. “We are trying to promote healthy eating habits.” This is vital in a country where childhood obesity is a growing problem. That’s why Julian turned to a hands-on approach, after spending time in the classroom, to reinforce what her students had learned. Julian is a special-education teacher for North Country Kids in an integrated preschool classroom in Plattsburgh. That means some of her students fall under the special-education spectrum, while others are typical. The students planted tomatoes, lettuce and flowers in large white buckets. “I told them the flowers would keep animals away,” Julian smiled. All the items were donated by Sam’s Club, except the plants, which a parent provided. Hands-on experiences, coupled with classroom work, are more conducive to learning, Julian said. “This also promotes healthy eating habits over the summer and helps them to understand they can grow their own food.”

That is especially important in a country where the childhood obesity rate has more than tripled in the past 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In 2008, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Youth who are obese are likely to be obese as adults and are at increased risk for many types of cancer. Roughly 17 percent, or 12.5 million of children and adolescents aged 2-19, are obese.

“We want to promote healthy eating as much as we can,” Julian said. Her students seemed focused on the project, quietly adding dirt to their containers, digging holes and placing vegetables and flowers in before watering their vegetable buckets. Benjamin Coryea, 4, said he enjoyed planting lettuce and liked the crunchy noise it sometimes makes. “It is silly and it is healthy for me.” He said he had learned a lot from the project and his teacher. “Lettuce is a vegetable, and plants need water and sun to grow and need to be planted in dirt.”

wheels of Congress turn instead of gumming them up,” she said. Family is important to Long, who worries that the current state of affairs in America is detrimental to family values. In fact, Long is concerned that it is harmful to the overall well being of all Americans. “A lot of the problem is certain people of the liberal left believe they are a lot smarter than us and know better how to run our lives and families and churches.” These people believe it appropriate to tax the country out of debt and grow

the economy by writing thousands of pages of legislation. But Long said that is not the answer. The current laws are designed to trip up business, she said, and have created a situation in New York in which the state’s children are its biggest export. There are no job opportunities for young people in New York. “I think a lot of people are fed up with self-satisfied, arrogant politicians,” Long said. “New Yorkers value independence and integrity, someone who will stand for something and be strong.”





Run for Rosie planned for weekend Proceeds to go to Stop Domestic Violence

By Katherine Clark CADYVILLE — Friends, family and community members will come together for the third annual Run for Rosie on June 23 at the Cadyville Recreational Park. Registration for the threemile run will begin at 8 a.m. at the park, located on Goddeau Road, where Rosie found the most peace according to event organizer Laura Whalen, a friend and former co-worker of Rosie’s. The run is in honor of Rose “Rosie” Rascoe Maynard, a former Civilians Counselor at Clinton Correctional Facility who died



PLATTSBURGH – Wendy Long wants to save us. “If our republic survives and revives, it will be because people like you in this room here have a deep love for country and state and care about where it has gone, especially over the last few years,” said the litigation attorney, speaking in Plattsburgh at a Tea Party event. She is happy with her job and said she doesn’t need a new one. Still, Long is seeking the Republican nomination June 26 to challenge Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, the litigation attorney. “I’m worried my children won’t grow up in the same America I grew up in,” she said. “We have to worry about everybody in this country.” Long attended college during the Reagan years, a time when she said students can be pulled off track by “all this liberal gobbledygook in class.” Long served as a law clerk for Judge Ralph K. Winter on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York City, and then for Justice Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court of the United States. She served as a litigation partner for the law firm Kirkland & Ellis and in 2005 joined the Judicial Confirmation Network as a chief counsel. She led public support or opposition to Supreme Court nominations and played a prominent role during the Supreme Court nomination of Sonia Sotomayor. Since 2007, she has been a legal advisor to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. Long is a Roman Catholic catechism teacher. “I was a lawyer who tried to help the

suddenly on March 26, 2010. Every year her friends, daughters, parents and former co-workers arrange the walk to be held close to her June 26 birthday. Those interested can participate in a one-mile walk/run or the three-mile run. “It’s a really neat course,” Whalen said. “People don’t have to run the whole way. Run, walk, a little of both. It doesn’t matter; it’s for a good cause and it should be a beautiful day.” The entrance fee is $10 and the first 150 people to register receive a free t-shirt. All proceeds benefit Stop Domestic Violence, a cause Whalen said Rosie was very passionate about. “One of the things we want to keep alive about Rosie is how giving, kind and thoughtful she was,”

Whalen said. “She would do anything for anyone. “She was one of the strongest women I know and this was a cause she truly believed in,” Whalen said. One of Whalen’s favorite running memories of Rosie was a Turkey Trot they both ran in for the Lions Club. “She ran up in front of me and was my own little cheerleader, saying ‘C’mon keep running, don’t stop,’” Whalen said. “She was definitely very inspiring.” Stop Domestic Violence is a NYS-certified program that assists victims of domestic violence 24 hours a day. They offer individual and group counseling services, crisis intervention, advocacy with law enforcement, medical services, local departments of Social Services and information,

and referrals for victims of domestic violence. Whalen said it was an organization Rosie had always been passionate about supporting. “She always put 100 percent into her job and it’s a way to continue to pay it forward, like she would have, for an organization that is getting funding cuts little by little every year,” Whalen said. For more information about the run, or to make a donation in Rosie’s name, call 492-2511 ext. 4371. “Come join us in memory of Rose Rascoe Maynard as we celebrate the place where she truly loved to run and find peace,” Whalen said.

Athletes win titles; deliver pride for entire region


ost Ticonderoga High School students were sleeping-in the morning of June 12. Classes had ended the day before and a little shuteye was in order after a long school year. Not for Jay Hebert. While others were dreaming of future success, Hebert was working to make his dreams a reality. The rising junior was on the school track, working out. That’s why Hebert is a champion. Hebert has established himself as one of the most successful Section VII track and field athletes ever. Hebert won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association small-school championship June 9 in the 110-meter hurdles. He then won the New York Federation championship, which pits the top eight runners from schools of all sizes against each other. Hebert went undefeated this season with a best time of 14.07 seconds — the fastest time in New York and the fourth fastest high school time in the nation, according to his coach. The Olympic B qualifying standard is 13.72 seconds. He’s only 1.2 seconds away from the world record in the 110 hurdles held by Cuba’s Dayron Robles. Ti Coach Walter Thorne believes Hebert can run in the Olympics, but the Sentinel champion is more reserved than his coach. “That’s too far away to think about,” Hebert said. “I just want to work hard, improve and run in college.” Hebert is just one champion area residents can take pride in. Section VII athletes won three state titles at the track and field

championships June 8 and 9. Also bringing home championships were Dan Lennon of Peru in the Division II 3,200-meter run, and the Beekmantown 400-meter relay team of Jess Huber, Mikaela Frechette, Kallie Villemaire and Courtney Wilson. Hebert and Lennon ran in the high school national championship track meet last weekend in Greensboro, N.C., proving their mettle once again. Hebert finished second in his heat of the 110-meter hurdles in the “emerging elite” class. Lennon battled all the way before finishing third in the 5,000meter championship race. He also added a 22nd place finish in the championship two-mile race. Lennon, who graduates this weekend, will take his talents to the Syracuse University cross country and track programs in the fall. What makes a champion? Certainly talent plays a huge role. So does work ethic. Kenyan distance runners, who dominate distance running throughout the world, often comment, “Somewhere, right now, one of my competitors is running.” It’s a reminder that dedication can never wane. Jay Hebert, Dan Lennon and a handful of others, although still young, know that. It’s one of the reasons they’re champions — champions we can all be proud of.

Will there be a daily newspaper in your future?


hat question has been asked, not only in this country, but around the world, in the past few years. In New Orleans, Birmingham, Mobile and Huntsville the discussion has taken center stage with the announcement that this fall they will cease publishing a daily print product and will instead be switching to an online publication, with a print product only 3 times per week. The situation in the above named communities is important to watch. For one, the ownership is the same as The Cleveland Plain Dealer, where reportedly there were meetings recently to quell concerns there. But in general, the daily newspaper revenuemodel dilemma is happening across America, including here in the North Country. In Canada similar moves are taking place in Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa. Newspapers are not going to become extinct, but they are facing the types of challenges they’ve been unaccustomed with dealing. Toward the end of the last century, daily newspapers enjoyed healthy bottom lines and became popular investment opportunities. Unfortunately, their primary mission was not so much with an eye on future technology investments and research as it was on maximizing the bottom line. They must now face the realization that there is no easy fix that will allow them to maintain their profit margins and at the same time reclaim the lofty status they once enjoyed. Many daily newspapers blame the downfall on people reading their news online for free while dropping their paid subscription. The revenue model they have been accustomed to operating under was based on 80 percent adverting revenues and 20 percent circulation revenues. As paid subscriptions continue to drop, advertising revenues were affected. In 2005, daily newspapers registered $47 billion in ad revenues and by 2010 they were down to $22.8 billion. While the dailies try to reposition themselves with paywalls, reduced print days, outsourcing certain tasks while trimming staff and news coverage, not all types of newspapers have abandoned their true mission. About 45 minutes from Asheville, in Yancey County, North Carolina, where the population is less than 18,000, the Yancey County News won two major journalism awards in 2011, its first year of publishing—the E.W. Scripps Award for Distinguished Service to the First Amendment and the Ancil Payne Award for Ethics in Journalism. The Yancey County News is a weekly, available online for free as well as in print, with a circulation of 1,200 copies and a masthead that lists only two people as staff—hus-

band and wife Jonathan and Susan Austin. Being a newspaper is not about all the trappings that come with running a large, profitable business. Large corporate or publicly traded companies may Dan Alexander not be the best stewThoughts from ards of newspapers in Behind the Pressline the future as the renowned Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Fla. recently reported. Officials acknowledge their traditional revenue source, the Tampa Bay Times, can no longer finance its parent organi zation. The institute, which owns the Tampa Bay Times, has traditionally relied on dividends from the paper, as well as tuition, foundation support and donations. The institute once received dividends—millions annually—from the Tampa Bay Times, but those checks are no longer being cut. In its raw form a newspaper is still what it has always been about, it’s a partnership with the community it serves. The community provides the financial support while the newspaper holds up its end by being the community watch dog, reporting on hometown events, providing the local merchants with a proven advertising medium and being the hometown cheerleader. Yes, to stay in business you must run a profitable operation or you can’t sustain the effort, but what still counts to the community you serve is providing the platform for publishing local news and useful advertising information that readers find of value and can afford. This community newspaper has had to face some of the same financial challenges as our area daily counterparts, but while they have released staff recently as a result of outsourcing and cutbacks we’ve added six experienced staff castoffs in recent weeks, with more in the wings. We are continuing to expand our digital offering, which will remain free, and we look to the future with promise and optimism as we continue to live up to our founders motto of being “more than a community newspaper, we’re a community service.” In the end, the real problem lies with the newspaper investors who require profit priority over the informational needs of the local community.

Practicing tough love for angry taxpayers C

hamplain Valley Educational Services was forced to cut more than 80 positions on top of the nearly 100 that were cut last year as schools pull their special education students back in attempts to save money. Special education students are costly for taxpayers, partly because the federal government doesn’t keep promises, such as covering more of the costs related to educating such students. What’s come through loud and clear during all of this is comments by many taxpayers who are fed up with having to cover the costs of educating special education students. They claim it is too costly and requires too many services. So, typical taxpayers, I’m sorry. By typical, I mean one who doesn’t fall under the special-education label. I apologize for my son, Samuel, who was born with 1p36 deletion

syndrome, a disorder caused by a genetic deletion. It is characterized by moderate to severe intellectual disability, delayed growth, hypotonia, seizures, limited speech ability, malformations, distinct facial features and hearing and vision impairment . I don’t know why Sammie was born with this. I do know he is adorable, and like everyone, he loves and wants to be loved and feel safe and secure. But Samuel also takes advantage of typical taxpayers who shouldn’t have to shoulder some of the financial burden to help him live to his potential. Since he was born, Sammie has received speech, physical and occupational therapy, in the home. He is five and just graduated from his first year of kindergarten at Champlain Valley Educational Services and continues those therapies there. He has a one-on-one aide since he can’t walk, change his clothes or go to the bathroom

Stephen Bartlett

From the Editor’s Desk on his own. He recently started crawling, though it cost taxpayers money since it was partly due to the work of his therapists. Had I known, I would have told them sitting on his butt forever was fine, and less expensive. I realize I need to be tougher and less caring with Samuel. So, tough you were born with 1p36 deletion syndrome. I know that in order to learn to walk,

talk, feed yourself and function in society you require assistants, aides and therapists, but tough. Tough, Sammie, because taxpayers don’t care, nor should they. Take away the assistants, aides and therapists and let children like Samuel sit around and drool and defecate and urinate on themselves from birth to death. Samuel will look and act drastically different at say, 13, without those services, and many disabled individuals will die young, but hey, it’s costly, and typical taxpayers need their money. So, tough Samuel. I hugged you and said I love you when you said “Dadda,” but a speech therapist helped with that. I know the gait trainer is supposed to help you walk, but I’m gonna have to sell it and reimburse the taxpayers. My heart smiled when I balanced you by your arms and for the first time you put one foot in front of the other as I held you up and you

giggled, but that was the result of a physical therapist, so forget about walking, ‘cause that’s expensive. I can’t afford those services, and it’s not because I don’t work full time, because I do, but they are way out of my price range. I’m already drowning in medical debt because of mine and my family’s medical issues. Still, I’ve been selfish, and my typical neighbor needs to buy organic this week and gas up the SUV for a weekend in Montreal. Awwww, Sammie just woke up and is smiling at me from his bed with his big eyes. There I go again, acting soft when what typical taxpayers need is hard. Look Sammie-Sam, I know I promised you would walk and talk one day, but, er…tough. Reach Editor Stephen Bartlett at

Beck Meisenheimer: The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning and motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning and they generate their own motivation. This man was driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than he knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others.

Parents come together to save school programs By Stephen Bartlett

courage family involvement in the school system and pick up some of the educational supplements the district can no longer afford. “If the PTO wasn’t as active as they are, we wouldn’t have some of these opportunities,” Osborne said. The PTO tries to bridge the gap between the school and community, said K-5 PTO President Kim Chamberlain, who also has three children in the district. “A lot of times a parent won’t come to school but will come to

school activities,” she said. “This is a way to get families into the school.” Fundraisers that ultimately enhance the educational experience or cover the costs of activities and/or programs the district is unable to afford are a no-brainer, Chamberlain said. Field trips, for example, are especially important for children who my not have access to such activities otherwise. “This allows each student to go on at least one field trip,” Cham-

berlain said. “We also brought in authors, storytellers and artists. A lot of kids won’t be exposed to those things.” At a recent fundraiser at the school, community members lined up outside the door for ice cream and a chance to purchase raffle

tickets and participate in games. “It is nice to see such a huge turnout,” Chamberlain said. The PTO will begin its activities again this September. “Come to a PTO fundraiser and see what it’s all about,” Chamberlain said.


PERU — Strapped by shrinking revenues and rising costs last year, Peru Central School officials decided to stop paying for field trips starting this school year. Parents, sympathetic to the district’s plight and concerned about their children’s educational experience, stepped up and raised enough money at the intermediate school to bring field trips back. This was just one example of the power of fundraising and the increasing important role it plays in public education. “Our PTO has sponsored field trips for each grade level,” said Scott Storms, Peru Intermediate School principal. “They covered transportation costs and brought two authors to school.” Parent volunteers have also sponsored other events, such as teacher appreciation. “This was really helpful to our school, because this school year we pulled out field trips from the budget,” Storms said. “It is important for students to get that realworld experience. They can see things in books and on the Internet, but to go to the 1812 Homestead and Adirondack Farms is a handson experience.” Scott Osborne, another principal at Peru, said the PTO works to en-

Medical device tax bad for business? By Stephen Bartlett

ness. “After considering both sides of the issue and gathering information from a medical device manufacturer who was concerned that an excise tax may have a disproportionate impact on his business, I decided there are better ways to pay for expanding health coverage,” Owens said. The 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices was part of President Barack Obama’s health-care bill that was passed two years ago. Owens was speaking at Plattsburgh State, during a Town Hall PLATTSBURGH — Congressman Bill Owens is one of many Democrats who oppose a tax on medical devices. Earlier this month, he voted to repeal the tax, just one aspect of “Obamacare” that has some people up in arms. Owens said he voted for a bill to repeal the tax because the tax on medical devices would hurt busi-

meeting, when he heard from a constituent who pleaded with Owens to help repeal the tax, saying jobs would be lost because of it. The House voted 270 to 146 in support of a repeal to the new tax. But it has little chance of approval in the Senate and Obama has said he will veto the measure if it reaches his desk. The tax is scheduled to take effect in January as part of a package of fees being imposed to help offset the cost of subsidizing insurance coverage for more than 30 million people.

Critics say it will increase health care costs and result in job losses. The 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices is expected to raise $29 billion over the next 10 years. It would apply to manufacturers and importers of defibrillators, stents, artificial hips and knees, X-ray machines, surgical tools and more. Supporters of the tax say businesses that create such devices can more than afford the tax. Yet, many companies claim they will be forced to lay off workers and send jobs overseas.

Democratic lawmakers from states such as Minnesota and Massachusetts also say they want to repeal the tax. “This is another opportunity for both parties in Washington to put politics aside and work together for the good of the country,” Owens said. Owens cosponsored a separate bill that would repeal the same device tax, but pay for the loss in revenue by eliminating subsidies for oil and gas companies.

Bombardier lands a pair of substantial contracts By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — Bombardier Transportation signed contracts for nearly 600 new rail cars in New York City and San Francisco. The combined orders are valued at more than $1.2 billion. The cars will be assembled at Bombardier ’s manufacturing plant in Plattsburgh. The first contract was signed with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for 300 rail cars and is valued at nearly $600 million. The cars will be assembled in Plattsburgh, Bombardier ’s “Centre of Excel-

lence.” The Plattsburgh facility is the company’s center for rolling stock production in the United States. In operation since 1995, it has produced more than 3,000 passenger rail cars and locomotives now in service across the United States. Bombardier is expected to deliver 10 pilot cars in the third quarter of 2014, followed by the remaining balance between mid 2015 and early 2017. Bombardier and New York City Transit began their partnership in 1982. “Since then, we have delivered close to 1,900 vehicles to our valued customer,” Bombardier Transportation North America

President Raymond Bachant said in a press release. “We are proud that New York City Transit has shown its confidence in our products and technologies once again, and we look forward to providing high-quality, reliable, safe rail cars for the millions of people who ride New York’s subway system every day.” Bombardier also signed a contract with the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District for 260 rail cars, and is valued at about $631 million. The contract includes a first option order for 150 cars that will be ordered June 25, and additional orders, which could bring the

total number of cars ordered to 775, pushing the total order to around $1.5 billion. These cars will also be assembled in Plattsburgh. They will replace the Bay Area Rapid Transit District’s entire existing fleet and will make boarding faster and easier, as well as increase priority seating for seniors and people with disabilities. They will include more comfortable seats, bike racks, energy efficient lighting, an improved public address system and onboard security cameras. Bombardier is expected to deliver 10 cars in spring 2015, followed by another 250 between early 2017 and spring 2019.

“Bombardier is honored to have been selected to build BART’s Fleet of the Future and delighted to add the San Francisco Bay Area to the list of major metropolitan regions across North America and around the world that rely on Bombardier for metro cars that offer the highest levels of quality, performance and reliability,” Bachant said. “We look forward to working with BART to provide environmentally responsible, energy efficient and convenient transportation for the citizens of the Bay Area for years to come.” Bombardier ’s current North American metro car orders also include 706 new

cars for Chicago, 420 cars for Toronto and 468 cars for Montreal. Congressman Bill Owens said the contracts were great news for the North Country. “I would like to congratulate Bombardier and thank the many members of our community who continue to work to maintain and grow jobs in the region,” he said. “Clinton County continues to emerge as an industry leader in the assembly and manufacturing of transportation equipment, and it is important that we continue to work together and build on this momentum to increase economic activity in Upstate New York.”

CVPH receives millions in grant money By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH – CVPH Medical Center will receive more than $7 million as part of grants created to transform the state’s health care system. The funds will help create private rooms that will be used for medical and surgical patients. “These are important investments which not only assure better outcomes for patients but a more efficient, more cost-effective health care system in the long-

term,” said Senator Betty Little. “I congratulate CVPH for their successful application and look forward to seeing the progress they continue to make to transform the delivery of health care in the North Country.” Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced $20.2 million in grants to three hospitals in the North Country. That money is expected to improve patient care, reduce costs and ensure that all New Yorkers have access to quality treatment. The grants totaled $9,144,000 for Carthage Area Hospital, $3,753,430 for River Hospital and $7,309,572

for CVPH Medical Center. The grants are made available through New York State’s Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law. Statewide, the $301.1 million in grants will help 40 hospitals and nursing homes improve primary and community-based care, eliminate excess bed capacity, and reduce over-reliance on inpatient care in hospitals and nursing homes. "As a result of the hard work of the Medicaid Redesign Team and our actions to transform the state's health care system, we have already taken important steps toward reducing costs

and improving care for patients," Cuomo said in a press release. "These grants to hospitals in the North Country will help our health care facilities deliver better quality care in a more efficient and cost effective manner so all New Yorkers have access to the best care possible when it is needed." The awards are allocated through the New York State Department of Health and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York and are part of nearly $3 billion in funding that has been invested in health care reform over the past seven years. The grants will help im-

plement recommendations from Cuomo's Medicaid Redesign Team, including enabling health care facilities to deliver more efficient, higher quality care through restructuring, merging and realigning operations. The awards will also help develop collaborative projects among health care providers and will support capital projects, such as the conversion of hospital inpatient space to outpatient and ambulatory care and inpatient nursing home capacity to other less-restrictive forms of long-term care. "I commend these hospitals and nursing homes for

their resourcefulness and effectiveness in reconfiguring their beds and services to achieve greater efficiency and to deliver care most appropriate to address the identified needs in their communities,” said State Health Commissioner Nirav R. Shah. "These grants will support improvements and collaborations that will strengthen services and deliver care that will benefit our communities," said Paul T. Williams, president of the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

Local kayakers ask Plattsburgh to consider downtown whitewater kayak park By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH — An old idea to put a whitewater kayak park in downtown Plattsburgh is starting to make waves. When Ryan Ward has a free moment, he reaches for his kayak. To watch him navigate the Saranac River ’s sweeping current when the white-capped water is high is to witness gracefulness in an unlikely setting. Yes, he makes it look easy. But the ability to surf eddies and perform Eskimo rolls — a move that rights the kayaker after capsizing — comes with practice; something Ward commits himself to with unabashed fervor. In fact, the 22-year-old’s pursuit of the sport has been so relentless that he has paddled his way from beginner to assistant instructor in only one year. And the Saranac River has been an integral part of his learning process. “Last season, I was on the water five or six days a week,” Ward said. “We have an excellent whitewater kayak training ground right in our backyard.” Ward is one of many local kayakers who support the idea of creating a whitewater kayak park from the South Catherine Street bridge to downtown Plattsburgh, and he thinks that support could also pour in from the community. “I was kayaking the Saranac with some friends recently, and there were some kids on the shore watching us,” Ward said. “I paddled over and asked them if they would learn to kayak if they had the opportunity to do so, and they said, ‘Yes, absolutely.’ I’d say we have people show interest like that at least once a week.” Steve Maynard, a world-class kayaker and head paddling instructor of Plattsburgh State’s expeditionary studies program, introduced Ward to kayaking, and to the Saranac. Maynard uses the river to teach his students, and thinks the city could use it to promote recreation and tourism as well. The problem is, in its present state, the river ’s water level is usually too low in mid-July and August to be run. The solution, Maynard said, is to pinch the river in a few places to facilitate a consistent flow, and then rearrange some rocks to create features. “An assessment would have to be done, but when I saw them working on the General Electric plant, I thought some of that equipment could be used to move rocks around,” Maynard said. “This could be a good time to get a project like this finished quickly and cheaply.” Feeling inspired, Maynard attended a city council meeting last spring and put the idea in front of the board, but interest from the common council, he said, was lacking. “My heart just sank,” Maynard said. “They wouldn’t even consider it. I’m at the point now where I don’t know what else to do.” Maynard might have recently brought the proposal to the

attention of the city, but talk of a kayak park in Plattsburgh has ebbed and swelled since Larry Soroka, chair of the expeditionary studies program, concocted the idea about fifteen years ago. “I meet people all the time while kayaking who tell me they are from other places, like Boston or Buffalo, and they come here to kayak,” Soroka said. “One day, it just clicked.” The day it clicked, Soroka was in Saranac Lake, waiting for a friend in the parking lot of the town’s small whitewater kayak park. He watched as a woman pulled up in a station wagon to drop off three young boys, who got out and headed to the river to kayak. “I thought about how those kids could be hanging out on some steps somewhere, doing whatever, but instead they’re getting exercise and enjoying the day,” Soroka said. A seed was planted, and the more Soroka considered it, the better the idea Ryan Ward surfs an eddy near the Bridge Street bridge in downtown Plattsburgh. seemed.

Backlash on the World Record Bass


lthough the recent weather patterns have been decidedly summer-like, the actual summer season did not officially begin until Wednesday, June 20. It seems like we have been enjoying summer since March! However, for many eager anglers the true summer actually arrived just a few days ago, with the opening day of bass season on Saturday, June 16th. Bass fishing, like apple pie and the Fourth of July, has become an American tradition. Bass are one of the most widely distributed of all freshwater game fish species, and they are to be found almost anywhere there is water and a forage base. In fact, Andy Griffith and Opie opened the popular television program Mayberry RFD while toting an impressive stringer of bass back from the fishing hole. Bass, Bubba and beer, these are American traditions. Alaska is the only state in the union without a bass population, which is too bad because bass can actually be fished through the ice. Hawaii received the state’s first bass when they arrived by boat, likely while being transported for introduction into Japan in 1925. That was the year Akabishi Tetsuma, a Japanese businessman shipped over seven-dozen largemouth bass from California’s Ashino Lake for introduction to the island nation. Although American servicemen that were stationed in Japan after the war enjoyed the opportunity to fish for bass, the non-native fish is still considered an invasive species. Many Japanese anglers would prefer to see it eliminated. It is an unfortunate perspective, since it was a Japanese largemouth bass that captured the current world record largemouth, when a 22-pound, 5-ounce largemouth was taken from Lake Biwa on July 2, 2009.

The monster largemouth fell for a live bluegill on a reservoir near Tokyo that was offered up by Japanese angler, Manabu Kurita. His catch topped the historic world record by only one ounce. George Perry had established the bass world record on Georgia's Montgomery Lake way back in June 2, 1932. It was, and still is, one of angling’s oldest remaining world records. There’s still a lot of controversy surrounding the issue. Even though the Japanese largemouth tipped the scales at 22 pounds, 5 ounces, which topped the current bass record by a full ounce, the International Game Fish Association requires potential record fish to outweigh the old record by at least 2 ounces. The IGFA, which certifies game fish records worldwide, ruled the record a tie, and now, both fish jointly hold the World Record. When Manabu Kurita was awarded the world record for Largemouth Bass in 2009, it constituted the second time in five years that a Japanese angler had intruded on a blue blooded, American tradition. The first occasion happened in Plattsburgh, NY, when Japan finally topped the United States at its own game. Short of knocking off the New York Yankees in the World Series, there had never been such an upset in modern day sports. The initial incident occurred on June 24, 2004, when Shinichi Fukae of Osaka, Japan, the reigning Japan Bass Angler of the Year, made professional bass fishing history by fending off his closest American challenger to win the coveted Land O’Lakes Angler of the Year title. Fukae’s win marked the first time in the 36-year history of professional bass fishing, that someone earned angler of the year titles in two countries, and it occurred on Lake Champlain

District 21 congressional primaries slated for June 26 as an independent contractor consultant in the area of global trade and logistics. She also worked as a realtor in Arizona from 2005-2011 and specialized in assisting clients during the housing bust and economic crisis. Kellie has been involved in politics and a GOP Activist for the past 8 years in Arizona. She is a strong advocate of border security.

By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH — The 21st District congressional primaries will be held June 26, with polls open from noon-9 p.m. A total of two incumbents will be challenging Democratic incumbent Bill Owens this election.

Kellie A. Greene, a Republican, was born in Oswego, NY. She has several degrees: an Associate of Science from Bay Path College in accounting and business administration, a Bachelor of Science from Syracuse University in logistics management, an MBA from Rochester Institute of Technology in international business and a Master of Arts in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. Greene has worked in international trade, and has spent the last eight years working with manufacturing companies

Author from page 1 “Nothing I would publish.” The 34 year old recently started a project that was to be published, a fictional survival story that takes place in the North Country after the dollar collapses and martial law is declared. “I think that could happen, and it probably will,” Raskin said recently during an interview at his Plattsburgh apartment. “It’s a guy and his dog and shotgun out in the woods.” The book was also turning into a love story when Raskin

CVES from page 1 positions, again, largely due to districts pulling special education students back. A few of those positions were reinstated, but the majority remained vacant. CVES officials stressed that they will continue to offer the same programs, just fewer sections of them. At the same time, CVES, which offers technical training and specialeducation services to 17 school districts in Clinton, Essex, Warren and Washington counties, plans to provide at least two new programs under its special education wing. “I certainly think our special education division is evolving based on our districts’ future needs,” Rissetto said. “That is absolutely not a bad thing. I think we will continue to respond to the needs of our districts, and as their needs change, the services we provide will change.” Rising special education costs have long been a burden for area school districts. When the federal government passed legislation in 1975 ensuring all disabled students received

PLATTSBURGH — The Mayor ’s Cup Boat Parade of Lights seeks entries. Businesses and organizations can join by entering a boat in the 2012 parade, competing in a category just for them. The 35th edition of the Mayor ’s Cup Festival will get underway with decorated boats gliding along the Plattsburgh shore of Lake Champlain. Contestants will compete for bragging rights as the best-looking boat on the lake on Thursday, July 12, at 9 p.m. No boat is too large or too small. This year, any boat can represent a business or community organization. Have a boat, but no team? Have a team, but not boat? We can help. A decorating party will take place before the main event, at 7 p.m. at Wilcox Dock. For more information, contact Jake DeSnyder at, 569-5595, or go to

had a change of heart and switched to the memoir. The Plattsburgh-based book is about a small town with big lessons, though it is not a morality tale. It’s mostly a conversational book about nothing, sort of like a Seinfeld episode. It takes place over the course of a day in Plattsburgh and includes flashbacks to experiences with various people Raskin has encountered in the area. Much of it occurs in the local coffee shop, the Koffee Kat. It’s less aggressive than his previous work, but so is Raskin. Much of that is due to his age and the people he fell in with in Plattsburgh. “I’ve met some of the best people I have ever met in my

entire life,” Raskin said. “Plus, it’s hard to be bitter when you are surrounded by lakes and mountains.” And life is simpler now, normal and quiet, with his feet firmly planted. He runs and bikes daily and hikes with his dog. Raskin plans to complete the new book in September, with a possible publishing date sometime next year. He suspects this book and the novel he started will be the last works he publishes, though he will always write for his own pleasure. “I find that publishing is a great invasion of my privacy,” Raskin said. “Plus, I hate deadlines and being beholden to a publisher.”

expressed by area special education directors. The first is a Day Treatment Program, which would serve students with severe mental-health disabilities. This program could prevent them from being shipped out of the area and away from their families, and should be in place halfway through the 2012-13 school year. The second is a Job Target Program, which would provide special-education students with training in fields such as food-service, hospitality and manufacturing. The handson program could be in place by the 2013-14 school year. “There are a number of hotels and factories in the area,” Pombrio said. “Once they leave this program, hopefully they will have employment opportunities.”

will impact administrators, faculty, teaching assistants, clerical and support staff. “In the fall, we will have fewer numbers in the programs we offer,” said Roxanne Pombrio, CVES director of special education. “For example, we now have four 6-1-1 classrooms, and in the fall we will have two. The class will run just as it does currently. If a student needs an aid, that student will have an aid. “The students we have remaining will still get the same level of service.” This year, the special-education department provided services to 209 students, and this fall that number will drop to around 130. Classrooms have dropped from 39 during the 2009-10 school year to an anticipated 12 for the 2012-13 school year. Despite the cuts, CVES is planning to offer two new programs in response to needs

Matthew A. Doheny, a Republican, was raised in Alexandria Bay, NY. He has an undergraduate degree from Alleghany College and a law degree from Cornell University. After college, Doheny became Deutsche Bank’s managing director for distressed assets, where he helped purchase large troubled companies and restructure them so they could once again operate independently. He started his own company in 2010 called North Country Capital LLC. The company lends start-up funds to entrepreneurs who don’t have access to traditional funding streams. It also provides working capital to existing businesses to help them grow. Doheny also sits on the boards of two national companies, Bridge Street and YRC Worldwide.

a public education, it had indicated it would reimburse 40 percent of the costs, but to this day that figure has hardly reached 14 percent. The majority of school officials and the public agree such students should be educated and provided the resources required to participate in and benefit from that education, but the cost burden largely falls on schools and local taxpayer ’s shoulders. CVES, in some instances, has been better equipped to provide special education services to area children. However, rising costs and inadequate aid over the past few years have caused school officials to return special education students from CVES to the districts in an attempt to provide them with services at a lower cost. Parents and concerned educators have said some districts do this well, while others are not providing special education students with adequate services now. Parents wonder how a district that previously said it did not have the resources to educate their children will be able to do so now with less money. The most recent reductions at CVES, which are a direct result of these pull-backs,

Essex County GOP supervisors endorse Doheny for Congress By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Republican Essex County Supervisors have thrown their support behind Matt Doheny in the race for U.S. Congress. During a press conference June 18 at the Deer ’s Head Inn in Elizabethtown, St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency made the official announcement to back the Watertown Republican candidate in advance of the June 26 federal GOP primary. “We will work very hard for him and he will be proud of us,” Morency said. “The supervisors are following the lead of the Republican Committee,” Essex County GOP Chair Ron Jackson said. “This is the second time that we have endorsed him. We feel that he is the best qualified to represent us and to get the jobs issue straightened out and work on getting the economy back on track.” Doheny said that he was grateful for the endorsement. “This endorsement means a lot to me,” Doheny said. “You supervisors are the people who are on the front lines of the challenges that we face. I have met with everyone and we are going to work hard with you to get the economy back on track.” Doheny has also been endorsed by New York State Sen. Betty Little. “We pushed to cut spending and close our multi-billion dollar

Essex County GOP supervisorrs endorse Doheny. deficit in New York,” Little said via a June 11 press release. “Our federal government should be expected to do the same. I have the utmost confidence that Matt Doheny will be a leader in this effort, and that’s why I’m pleased to endorse him.” Doheny is facing a June 26 primary against Kellie Greene in the race top be the Republican nominee for the 23rd Congressional Dis-

trict, a seat that is currently held by Plattsburgh Democrat Bill Owens. Doheny was one of nine candidates who attempted to seek the party nomination after then congressman John McHugh was tabbed to be the Secretary of the Army in 2009, eventually losing out to Dede Scozzafava, who dropped out of the race three days before the election and endorsed

Owens. In 2010, Doheny won his party’s primary against Lake Placid accountant Douglas Hoffman, who then ran as a Conservative and was pointed to as the reason why Doheny lost a close race to Owens after receiving 6 percent of the General Election vote. Also on June 26, three candidates are vying for the Republican nom-

ination to face current Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, including Wendy Long, Bob Turner and George Maragos. Last week, Long received the endorsement of the Essex County GOP and has picked up the majority of endorsements in the campaign.
