Mayor’s Cup to return By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — The 34th annual Mayor ’s Cup Regatta and Festival is only days away. Gail Recor e, public r elations chairperson for the annual Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary event, said planning for Mayor ’s Cup is right on schedule.

“Everything is going very well,” said Recor e. “W e wer e worried about a month ago when all the flooding started, but the water levels have gone down and now everything seems to be falling into place.” Recore said the flooding, which last several weeks and affected much of the er gion, seems to have had little to no impact on the plans for this year’s Mayor’s Cup. That includes concerts planned for the Lions Club Bandshell on City Hall Place, adjacent t o M cdonough M onument. “We’re r eady to r oll,” she said. The four -day event kicks of f next Thursday, July 7, with the 5th annual Boat Parade Festival of Lights. “We’re still accepting r egis-

tration for that,” said Recor e, “and that can be a boat of any kind.” That day , acr oss town, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts will kick of f its “Jumpin’ in July” summer concert series, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Live entertainment will be there until 7 p.m. The following day , Friday , July 8, the Plattsburgh Public Library on Oak Str eet will of fer a summer science pr ogram featuring “Sid the Science Kid” from PBS, beginning at 10 a.m. That evening, the band Glass Onion will perform at the Lions Club Bandshell from 7 to 9 p.m. On Satur day, July 9, that’s when many more activities take place, said Recore. “We’ve got a lot happening on Saturday,” she said. The day begins with the “Round the Island” kayak ride hosted by the Kayak Shackstarting at 9 a.m. Those participating

in the ride will meet at the V alcour Conference Center on State Route 9 for the thr ee-hour outing. The NCCCA will offer familyoriented arts activities and entertainment from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with str eet vendors, pony rides and medieval jousting being among the activities planned. The annual Mayor ’s Cup Regatta will also set sail at 9 a.m. from the Plattsburgh Boat Basin and end later that day with a barbecue and awards ceremony at the Naked T urtle on Dock Street. “There, we’ll be giving out the second annual Ianelli Spirit Award, named after the late Mayor John Ianelli,” said Recore. “It will go to a community member who shares the same kind of community spirit Mayor Ianelli had.” Also during the day Saturd ay, the 1 1th Annual Thomas J. O'-

Connor Memorial Summer Hoops for Youth Basketball Tournament will be held at the Clinton County Government Center on Mar garet Str eet, beginning at 10 a.m. Registration for that event is open until Wednesday, July 6. The day will also include a performance by Rick Davies and the Bear cat Ramblers at the Lions Club Bandshell at 6 p.m. and Legends of Southern Rock at 8 p.m. Fir eworks will follow downtown at 9:30 p.m. and Legends of Souther Rock will continue playing until 11 p.m. On Sunday, July 10, the annual CVPH Mountain to Lake Bike Ride will start out fr om CVPH Medical Center on Beekman Street at 9 a.m. The NCCCAwill again of fer family- oriented activities throughout the day and Circus Smirkus, an international youth cir cus, will r eturn to Plattsburgh for shows at 1 and 6 p.m. The cir cus will also host

shows at those times the following day as part of the unof ficial end of Mayor ’s Cup Weekend. “I’m very excited,” Recor e said of Mayor ’s Cup. “We especially need this event this year to kick off our summer.” Mayor Do nald M . K asprzak agreed. “I am very pleased that this year ’s Mayor ’s Cup appears to be ready with wonderful entertainment and activities downtown,” said Kasprzak. “Once again, the waterfr ont will be busy with sailing races and events which will bring hundreds of people to watch and enjoy all the activities there as well.” “Working with Sunrise Rotary again this year has resulted in a gr eat weekend ahead,” the mayor added.

City Beach opens June 30

PLATTSBURGH — The City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department plans to open Plattsburgh City Beach to the public Thursday, June 30. The beach was opened for swimming lessons offered by the town and city recreation departments June 27, with mor e than two dozen childr en attending. The overall opening of the beach is later this year, due to water levels for Lake Champlain only r ecently receding to less than 100 feet, according to Steve Peters, superintendent of the city recreation department. For the past several weeks, all entrances to the beach have been closed, with the parking lot submerged, as well as many portions of the Heritage T r ail. The lake was, at one time, above the sea wall and flooding areas up to and around the Crete Memorial Civic Center. “Our staff and crews from the Public Works Department have done an incredible job in a short amount of time cleaning up debris and r epairing er oded ar eas,” said Peters. “I am confident we can provide a great beach for the community this summer.” Due to the flooding, the swimming area has been moved from its original spot in front of the vendor building to an area near the new bathhouse and the Heritage Trail. As the summer progresses and the water continues to recede, the swim area will migrate back toward its original location. Plattsburgh City Beach is located at 4 Beach Road and will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., weather permitting, through Monday, Sept. 5. Entrance is free for city and town residents and $5 per day for all others.

PLATTSBURGH — The American Military Retirees Association and the Plattsburgh Reserve Center have coor dinated a Commissary on-site sale to be held Saturd ay, July 30, and Sunday, July 31, at the Reserve Center , located at 5363 Peru St. The sale — which will r un from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days — will be open to Guardsmen and Reservists, active duty military and retirees, and 100 per cent service-connected disabled and authorized dependents and survivors.

All items are only sold by the case and must be ordered in advance. Order sheets are available at theAmerican Military Retirees Association, 5436 Peru St., and at Veterans Services Of fices in Clinton,

Departures from Lake Placid and Saranac Lake

SOUTH PLA TTSBURGH — The world of Internet dating is sometimes over-looked by disbelievers who flip the channel when a commer cial plays about how they could find their “tr ue love” on a top-rated dating site. However, local author Elizabeth Cohen has taken a closer look at the subject. Cohen caught wind of the newest growing trend of dating and decided to dig deeper into this modern age form of courtship through the fictional lives of her characters. Over a two-year period, Cohen wr ote her newest collection of short stories, titled “The Hypothetical Girl: And Other Stories of Love in These T imes.” Each story r evolves around the highly-unrecognized world of Internet dating. “I r eally haven't seen anyone else writing about this world,” said Cohen. “I think it's crazy because everybody is dating this w ay. It 's r eally weir d the way you interact.” Her stories range from heart-warming to heart-wrenching while revealing

both the dangers and hilarities of Internet love. “After two months of exchanging pleasantries, of back and forth flirting, of this and that-ing, zig and zagging, chit and chatting on-line, Myra suggested Louis and she meet,” r eads an excerpt from the story “Death by Fr ee Verse,” one of the 12 within her new book. It centers ar ound two people who meet on the Internet and write limericks to one another. The ideas for the stories all came from Cohen's attempts on dif ferent dating sites, wher e she used the fr ee trial periods. “I was going to adjust my life,” said Cohen. “I had this idea that I wo uld find somebody r eally fast. I met so many crazy people, wonderful people, and some really disgusting people.” Cohen never did find her tr ue love through the Internet, but she discovered a variety of people, each inspiring a new character for her fictional short stories. “This huge wide world of people just came flooding into my life,” said Cohen. “On the Internet I went thr ough

As the water recedes, there is still much damage to be assessed and work to be done to r epair pr operty, homes and businesses.

Our Highway Department has begun their summer road-paving program that, along with County and State work, will improve travel in the town as well as the appearance of our municipality . The W ater and Wastewater Department has been making progress with taking over the former Schuyler Falls W ater System.

As the water r ecedes and we all r eturn to some type of normalcy, I would like to thank the aff ected city residents and local business owners for their patience thr oughout this entir e pr ocess.

Comments from elected official are discrimination — period


ame-sex marriage has long been a matter of debate and whether you like it or not, in the State of New York, it’s now legal. What doesn’t sit well with us is not whether or not gay couples can now enter the legal state of matrimony . It’s the bigoted comments of Clinton County Legislator Sam Trombley r eportedly made during last week’s Clinton County Legislature meeting. During last week’s meeting, Trombley was quoted as saying, "I'm surprised the health department has not come out against this because we are going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes," referring to same-sex marriage legislation. An HIV epidemic because a man can marry another man and a woman can marry another woman? W ow. Mr . T rombley, how ridiculous is that? Apparently, very, because the following day Trombley r eportedly stood behind his comments saying “This is my opinion, and if

Gay men and women will still have sex just as they have since the beginning of time. The right to now marry won’t change that. And, since when has being monogamous with a partner — any partner — incr eased the likelihood of transmitting sexual diseases like HIV? Whether you’r e in favor of gay marriage or not, or even for or against homosexuality in general, the flat out discrimination of any section of the population — especially from the perspective of a publically-elected of ficial in a public for um wher e that person is representing har d-working taxpayers — is just that: discrimination. Mr. Trombley, if you’re against homosexuality, that’s your prerogative. But, when you publically degrade people you’ve sworn an oath to represent — yes, we’re sure there’s at least a few people in your jurisdiction who are gay — then you’ve done nothing but a disservice to them and shoved your foot square into your mouth. Plain and simple. When we asked people on our Facebook

Ignorance at the county level (This is a letter submitted addr essed to Clinton County Legislator Sam Trombley after his r ecent comments on same-sex marriage causing a potential HIV epidemic.) Dear Mr. Trombley: Your comments r egarding the r elationship between gay marriage and its potential to fuel an AIDS epidemic are an embarrassment to your constituency and to elected officials, both locally, state and nationwide. Your ignorance poses a larger threat to the health of the collective citizens of Clinton County than does any sexually-transmitted disease, and your presence as chair of the Clinton County's Human Services Committee is offensive and you should be removed immediately. Hopefully, your peers at the Clinton County Legislative Of fice will publicly repudiate your comments regardless of their personal views on the issue of gay marriage. Please seek some basic HIV -related education befor e you further humiliate yourself with your ignorant public comments. Patrick O'Flaherty

people do not agree, that's just the way it is." Don’t get us wr ong — we’r e all for fr eedom of speech afforded by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It’s what gives us the right as journalists to do what we do. And, for those who have for gotten, her e’s how the First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law especting r an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exer cise ther eof; or abridging the fr eedom of speech, or of the pre ss; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Freedom of speech may be a right, but for Pete’s sake, exer cise a little intelligence if you’re going to open your mouth. W ill the cases of HIV pr oportionally incr ease with the number of gay marriages? No. Why? It’s simple. Even if HIV was solely spr ead by homosexual intercourse, a little piece of paper saying two men or two women may be together until death do they part, will have no effect.

Would legalizing gay marriage necessarily risk incr easing the spread of AIDS? Remember, it’s promiscuity that spreads AIDS, not sexual orientation. Heterosexuals get HIV too and, even to them, it can be spr ead by sexual contact. The right to marry the person he or she loved most, whether opposite or same gender , would pr ovide an incentive to keep that marriage, in order not to lose that eternally treasured state. Pre-maritally, for congenital heter osexuals, as for congenital gays or lesbians, promiscuity is about equally high. It’s after marriage that

monogamous behavior incr eases, strongly protected by legal status that guarantees such rights as hospital visits, and shar ed property ownership (with inheritability), and by the sanction that religion can give it. Without the universal right to marry for tr ue love (without first appealing for the state's appr oval of one's desir ed partner ’s gender), and its r ecognition thr oughout the state, how can we know that pr omiscuity, and with it AIDS, wouldn’t drop just as much for homosexually oriented people? If increasing monogamy then, why wouldn’t legalized gay marriage decrease, not increase, the spread of AIDS? In NY State, when gays couldn’t legally marry , the pre-marital state was all they had; now, by July 24, a new chance emerges. David E. Manwell Beekmantown

Publisher’s Viewpoint

Celebrate your independence, be thankful for freedoms this July 4th


his weekend we will be celebrating our nation’s independence. Independence Day recognizes the home of the brave and land of the free on the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It’s a day of picnics, parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag. But what does “independence” really mean to each of us today? Is it just an extra-long holiday weekend full of fun and fireworks, or do we take time to appreciate the sacrifices of our forefathers remembering their bravery, service and commitment to fight for and expand freedoms for all Americans? The freedoms we enjoy today continue to be reaffirmed and renewed throughout our 235-year history through wars, civil strife, and political victories. Our nation continues to evolve and redefine the word “independence,” but like most things in this country there always seems to be more than one side to its definition. Is “independence” merely the fact that we control our own borders and are not governed by a foreign nation or is “independence” more about the freedoms provided by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights through our society and culture here in America? While the US is far from perfect our nation is still envied around the world as thousands flock to our borders annually and nations around the

by society with the same open arms that we profess to celebrate on the 4th. Something so offensive to many of us as burning the American flag is a freedom we must all be willing to accept and defend. Let’s face it; we all want control over our lives, actions and property. While your elected officials legislate what freedoms we can exercise and what we are not free to do, it’s our culture, over time, that resolves these inequities within our borders and seeks to provide a level playing field, but it does take time for these changes to take root. Look back at how blacks were once treated or Japanese Americans during World War II. By today’s standards many may be appalled by those actions, but had you lived through that period first hand, you might have a different perspective. So when you’re celebrating this July 4th or watching a magnificent fireworks display, remember this, freedom is as much about your personal freedoms as it is about tolerance, understanding and respect for others who also long to be free. Life is so short and fleeting; is it worth fighting and stressing out today over something that in a few short years may end up being considered commonplace? Let’s make certain the battles we wage are in the defense of freedom and not just the opposition to change. Dan Alexander is publisher and owner of Denton Publications. He may be reached at

Handling the pesky Japanese beetles


ast week, I wr ote about two common beetle pests that plague our gar den. My main focus of the article was rose chafers. This week I’ll focus on the other pest — Japanese beetles. Like their name implies, the beetles are from Japan and wer e accidentally intr oduced ar ound 1912 in a shipment of iris. In their native country, the beetles ar e controlled by natural predators and diseases, not pr esent in the U.S. The adult Japanese beetles are easy to identify with their bright, metallic green head and shiny copper -colored back. They ar e oval-shaped and about 15 millimeters long and 10 millimeters wide. The adult beetles appear in early July and can usually be seen munching the leaves of many shrubs and trees through mid-August. Leaves that have been eaten by Japanese beetles ar e skeletonized, which give them a lacy appearance. The larvae are fat, white grubs found in the soil in the fall and spring. The gr ubs feed on the r oots of grass plants and can cause extensive damage to lawns. While the adults are clumsy fliers, they can travel up to two miles in searc h of their favorite plants - which include raspberries, r oses, grapes, ornamental maples, beans, apples, pears, and many other fruit trees. Like rose chafers, Japanese beetles ar e difficult to control with sprays. No insecticide can be used

on a plant in flower as this kills the pollinating insects such as bees. Some r eport that catnip, chives, garlic, and tansy are natural repellents, as ar e the r emains of dead beetles. These methods do have limited effectiveness. One of the most effective control methods is to handpick the beetles. While this sounds like a daunting task, handpicking can be quite simple. The beetles tend to dro p off of the plant’s branches when disturbed. You can catch several beetles at the same time by filling a pan with soapy water, holding it under the plant and gently shaking the plant. The beetles simply fall off into the water . The soap br eaks the water tension, allowing the beetles to dr own. But, do wait a few hours befor e dumping out the pan of drowning beetles to make sure they have all died. One control method to avoid is the beetle traps sold in many stores. Research performed by many universities has shown that the pher omone traps attract more beetles to a property than they catch. In essence, you are sending the beetles a message to come eat in your yard. If you have a large property (several acres in size) you can use the traps to draw the beetles away from your gardens.

Once your gr oup is established you may want to find ways to maintain and boost motivation. Y ou could name your gr oup and create a logo for T shirts, enter charity events, or set gr oup goals. You can even start a little challenge within your gr oup. In my corporate wellness pr ograms, I incorporate a walking challenge where everyone wears a pedometer . Whoever takes the most steps during a given week wins a prize. You could do something similar or just have everyone in the group add up the amount of time they have individually spent walking during the week and see who comes out on top. So, while walking is gr eat for your health, it is also a gr eat way to build friendships and inspir e others, so get out ther e, get moving, and enjoy this nice weather while it lasts!

Cancer can be beaten says Relay for Life speaker Riley Cushing By Jeremiah S. Papineau

MORRISONVILLE — When Riley Cushing was diagnosed with leukemia thr ee years ago, it was something that he never saw coming. The Mooers teenager looked out at the crowd at this year’s Relay for Life June 17, as he shared his personal story of battling cancer. Cushing said he would never forget the day “everything changed for me.” “I was in school and I had this stomachache, so I went to the nurse and she called my mom,” said Riley. Riley said his mother came to get him and take him to the doctor ’s office, where it was believed he had an appendicitis. Doctors performed a series of tests befor e referring him to the hospital. “Something was not quite right,” said Riley. Riley and his family went home to await the test results. Eventually, they received a call asking them to bring Riley back to the hospital for even more tests. It was a lot of waiting, said Riley. “Finally, doctors came and told me my spleen was enlarged and my blood platelet count was 11,000, which was danger ously low,” said Riley. “All this meant nothing to me. I just knew my stomach hurt.” Eventually, doctors spoke with Riley’s

Same-sex marriage remarks spark controversy

By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — The local community is still in shock and awe of comments r eportedly made by Clinton County Legislator Samuel J. T rombley, Area2, at a Clinton County Legislature meeting last week. According to the Press-Republican, the 74-year -old Republican r epresentative fr om Ellenburg made comments during the June 22 meeting that wer e published in the daily newspaper the following day. When the issue of the state appr oving same-sex marriage legislation was br ought up during the

meeting, Trombley was said to have made his position on the matter known, being quoted as saying, “I’m surprised the health department has not come out against this because we ar e going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes ... [The health department is] always complaining about tobacco and smoking, I’m surprised they didn’t say anything about this.” The comments, which Trombley confirmed he made in the June 24 edition of the Press-Republican, were made just days before same-sex marriage was legalized by the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. Several attempts wer e made

by Denton Publications to reach Trombley for comment, though Trombley did not r eturn phone calls as of T uesday afternoon. Clinton County Legislatur e Chairman James R. Langley Jr ., Area-7, also declined comment on the matter. Regardless, Trombley’s comments sparked a fir estorm of controversy in the community , with comments on both the Press-Republican website and Facebook pages for Denton Publications in response to the legislator ’s position. Carrie Clark of Plattsbur gh wrote on the Facebook page for the ‘burgh, stating “Ignorance is the only wor d that comes to mind,” r eferring to T rombley’s

comments. Brian Rascoe Baker , also of Plattsbur gh, wr ote “What’s even mor e horrifying than Mr. Trombley’s putrid public comment is the fact that ther e are people out ther e who will buy into his paranoid, homophobic theories.” Others, like Mike Kelly of Plattsburgh, have encouraged residents to attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the legislature, to voice their opinion for or against T rombley’s public comments. The legislature will next meet Wednesday, July 13, beginning at 7 p.m. Meetings are held on the second floor of the Clinton County Government Center , 137 Margaret St.

Essex County

Occupancy tax passes through hearing stage By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — The path has been cleared for the Essex County Boar d of Supervisors to continue a 3 percent occupancy tax for three more years. Only one member of the public commented during the June 27 public hearing on the topic, which was tagged as pr oposed Local Law No. 2 of 2011. The tax took ef fect Jan. 1, 2000 and was continued in 2002, 2005 and 2008. Margaret Bartley of the Elizabethtown Chamber of Commer ce commented on the proposed local law , asking if mor e money from the occupancy tax could be funneled back to local chambers. “While we realize that Lake Placid generates much of the bed tax money, the ability of the Lake Placid Chamber to pr omote businesses in other towns, such as ours, is limited,” Bartley said. “Having our website or an occasional public event listed on their website, has little ef fect on our businesses and is a poor return for the money our lodg-

ing owners collect.As you prepare to extend the bed tax, I’d like you to consider giving $1,000 of bed tax money back to each town that collects the tax.” County vice-chairman and North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said that the county did not handle the occupancy tax money and that the Visitor ’s Bureau was responsible for that. “The money goes directly to the visitor ’s bureau for the distribution of the funds,” Politi said. “ Bartley said that she would get in touch with the Regional Of fice on Sustainable Tourism (ROOST), to which pr esident Jim McKenna said she would be welcomed. “We should talk, because we do have pro grams in place,” McKenna said. Moriah Supervisor T om Scozzafava said that he was pleased with how the money was used. “I think that the money is well-distributed for the marketing of the entire county,” he said. “Mor e goes to places like Lake Placid because that is the spark plug for the county in terms of tourism.” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morr ow

said that other counties are now duplicating what has happened in Essex County. “Other counties that said that they would never have a bed tax are now following our lead because they see how well it works,” Morrow said. Schroon Supervisor Cathy Moses added that the occupancy tax also lifts a weight off the county taxpayers. “This takes this money off the taxpayers,” Moses said. “This is a huge bill that is no longer paid through the budget.” Following the public hearing, the supervisors held the monthly ways and means committee meeting, wher e several r esolutions were passed to the full board, including the use of county transportation as free shuttles for the Champlain Bridge cer emonies in the fall, a resolution of appreciation to the DEC and Joe Martens for his assistance in allowing municipal br ush burning, and a resolution to investigate the possibility of adding information to the county tax bills about the amount of tax dollars that are used specifically for state-mandated costs.

A wilder side of the Adirondacks


he Fourth of July is considered the beginning of the Adirondack tourist season. Although tourism is the re gion’s primary industry , many local r esidents rank the annual onslaught of nature seekers and leaf peepers, somewher e just below the winter ’s first heavy snow, and slightly above spring’s bug season. While these observations ar e of fered in jest, there are certain truths evidenced, especially when roads are clogged with cars traveling at a snail’s pace, or if a favorite swimming hole is filled with unfamiliar faces. Such happenings happen, and when they do, I’m inclined to grin and bear it. After all, I’m beholden to tourist’s inter ests, and it may well be the only viable industry left in the park. But when the overload becomes too much, I escape to the solitude of a few, safe retreats. Some of my favorite escapes can be found along the untracked trails and secluded ponds of the Cranberry Lake region. Other such retreats can be realized along remote stretches of the Raquette River, especially in the sections downriver from Tupper Lake. However, there are wild and remote lands much closer to home. In fact, some may be

As far as boxing goes, I think Manny Pacqiau holds a title, as does one of the Klitschko brothers. I’m not even sur e how many titles there are. You don’t get the draws at Madison Squar e Garden that you once did for boxing, because it is a dying sport. Also, boxing doesn’t want to come to MSG anymore . They go to the new Cowboy Stadium and Vegas for their biggest fights. On the other hand, the UFC is begging to come to MSG.
