Bringing out the bluebirds By Jim Engelbrecht

Special to Denton Publications

7/17/10 thru 7/31/10

T

he New York State Bluebird Society actively maintains the U.S. Route 11 and State Route 22 Bluebird Trails in Clinton County. Perhaps you have noticed pairs of bright yellow-orange birdhouses, or nest boxes as they are sometimes referred to, along those highways as you travel. These boxes are paired due to the abundance of tree swallows in our area. Bluebirds and tree swallows make good neighbors and will defend their territories from others of their species. Bluebirds belong to the thrush family — as do robins. Like robins, eastern bluebirds lay

blue eggs and have a russet colored breast. Bluebirds, however, are secondary cavity nesters and are therefore limited in where they can nest. In nature they will occupy tree holes that have been excavated by woodpeckers or other primary cavity nesters. There is much competition from other cavity nesters for these nest sites, hence the need for the NYSBS boxes. Once a bluebird lays an egg in a nest box, a sparrow spooker is put on top of the box to scare house sparrows away. While this unsightly contraption (we use a wire frame with mylar strips) devalues the bird house, the bluebird’s egg investment ensures the box will not be abandoned. House sparrows are fierce competitors and will kill bluebird young and adults when coveting an occupied nest box. Satellite Route 11 Bluebird Trails include the North Country Golf Course in Champlain, the Barracks and Bluff Point Golf Courses in Plattsburgh, the Glenwood Cemetery in Champlain and the Maple Hill Cemetery in Rouses Point. A new addition is the Clinton Community College overlooking Lake Champlain in

South Plattsburgh. While all of these trail locations have had bluebirds, Clinton Community College attracted two pairs of bluebirds just two weeks after the boxes were put out. They now have eight healthy young bluebirds awaiting fledging (first flight). NCGC is having their most productive bluebird year. There were five successful first brood nests from which 18 young bluebirds have been fledged. There are three second brood nests containing nine eggs. The NYSBS bluebird exhibit at the Clinton County Fair will be featuring an “In the Nest Box” video which shows an eastern bluebird laying and hatching eggs and feeding the young. We invite interested bird lovers to see our exhibit in the Fish, Game and Wildlife Building, Tuesday, July 20, through Sunday, July 25. For more information, contact me at ClintonCC@nysbs.org or 297-3278. Jim Engelbrecht is coordinator of the New York State Bluebird Society for the Clinton County region.

Giving back to Family Promise

Trust your only pair of eyes to Experience Plattsburgh 566-2020

jeremiah@denpubs.com

When he and his family left the program, Noelting was asked to stay involved in a different capacity — serving on Family Promise’s board of directors. “I jumped at the chance because, partly, I felt it was my way of giving back,” he said. “Seeing the seedy underbelly of homelessness in Plattsburgh — people eating out of garbage cans and things like that — I was like, ‘This is how I can do something about this.” Noelting brought enthusiasm and a fresh view of the plight of homelessness in Clinton County, said Bradish. “I still hear on a regular basis that people don’t think homelessness is a problem here,” said Bradish. “There’s especially a lot of young people who don’t know this is a problem. What Brandon’s trying to do is help us reach peo-

ple his age.” One way Noelting is trying do that is by planning a concert at Coffee Camp Saturday, July 31. The show — which will so far feature the bands All the Rage, Crown of Lions, and the Irradiated Beef Project — is a means of building on past Family Promise fundraisers like performances by The Gibson Brothers and annual Carl King Memorial Golf Tournament. “I wanted us to be able to reach the younger generation,” said Noelting, who noted younger people might not necessarily be attracted to Family Promise’s other fundraisers. “I just wanted to add to what [Family Promise] was doing.” “What Brandon’s doing is great,” said Bradish. The July 31 concert will start at 5 p.m. The cost is $5 per person with all proceeds to go to Family Promise.

PLATTSBURGH — Brandon Noelting knows what it’s like to be homeless. And, it’s something he doesn’t want anyone else to go through. Noelting and his family — his wife and their three young children — were facing life on the street last year after their were forced to move out of substandard housing in the town of Dannemora. “Our toilet was going to fall through the floor, the floor in the kitchen was bowing to the point when you walked on it you could feel it shaking, there was no insulation in some of the walls,” recalled Noelting. The Noeltings were put up in temporary housing at a hotel by the Department of Social Services, but after problems with management, Noelting

said he and his family were forced to leave. “We had nowhere to go,” said Noelting. That’s when Noelting learned about Family Promise of Clinton County, a nonprofit organization which locates housing for families who have become homeless. The organization helped provide shelter for Noelting and his family for three months, until a permanent solution was found. Most of all, Noelting credited Family Promise director Maureen E. Bradish for her compassion and dedication to helping him and his family. “My wife and I were both full-time college students. I was trying to find work and we were both trying to support our three kids. We had a lot on our plate at the time,” said Noelting. “Maureen jumped at the chance to help us.”

Museum’s Cold War exhibit needs cold, hard cash PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton County Historical Museum recently opened its newest exhibit on the North Country’s role in the Cold War. The exhibit is titled “MAD,” which is the acronym for Mutual Assured Destruction or the military doctrine based on the capability of the Soviet Union and the United States capability of annihilating each other with nuclear weapons. The exhibit covers the period of the Plattsburgh Strategic Air Command base from 1955-1995 when it was home to an arsenal of nuclear bombers, refueling tankers, and thousands of airmen. The area’s strategic importance became even more obvious in 1960 with the installation of 12 Atlas missile sites in a 50 mile radius around Plattsburgh, the only intercontinental ballistic missiles east of the Mississippi.

ur Get yo y are gone! the

MAD highlights the incredible rush to complete the construction and arming of the missile sites during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The civil defense side of the story is also on display with supplies from fallout shelters and civilian evacuation directions since Plattsburgh was deemed a Category One target. The Clinton County Historical Association, which operates the museum, is in the process of raising funds to supplement a $3,000 grant received from the Association of Air Force Missileers to create the exhibit. “We need to raise about $2,000,” said museum curator and director Carol BlakesleeCollin, who noted the exhibit went over budget. “We’ve asked retired missileers who were involved with research for the exhibit and retired FB-111 pilots,” she said, adding the

‘Learn to Sail’ helping more enjoy Lake Champlain By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The North Country has one of the most important resources for a thriving community, says Chris Duley, but it’s one he considers greatly underutilized. “I think that Lake Champlain, especially Cumberland Bay and the western shore of the lake, is probably the best-kept secrets going,” said Duley, who serves as head of the Cumberland Bay Community Boating Center. “It is, by far, the best sailing and boating venue that there is in the Northeast.” Duley has been trying to promote an increased use of nonmotorized watercraft Lake Champlain for the past six years. Through coordination with the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department, Duley has continued to offer the Learn to Sail program to do just that. “Learn to Sail is a week-long program we offer twice in the summer for both kids 12 and up and for adults,” explained Duley. The concept behind the program is to get people of all skill levels acclimated to sailing under the direction of certified instructors teaching land- and water-based activities. Participants learn the basics of concepts such as “rigging, points of sail, sailing maneuvers, safety and recovery.” However,

that’s just the beginning of what Duley said he’d like to see offered by the Cumberland Bay Community Boating Center, which currently has no official home. “We are in the process of trying to offer a much larger program,” said Duley. “We’re trying to coordinate with the city to get a permanent place on the waterfront that would allow us to eventually host something longer than one-week sessions.” Extended sailing camps and incorporating canoeing and kayaking clinics are among some of the ideas, said Duley. “The biggest thing for us before we proceed is to have a permanent, physical presence on the lake,” said Duley, who noted the center is only visible when the program operates off Wilcox Dock. Having a permanent building would allow for secure boat storage as well, he added. Currently, the program’s 10 boats are left outdoors during the winter months and are subject to the elements. “We demast the boats and put those away for the winter, but the boats are left outside,” said Duley. The center relies on volunteers to help prepare the boats for use each summer, he said, adding the Adirondack Young Professionals are organizing a clean up day this Saturday, July 17, at Wilcox Dock. The nonprofit civic organization is recruiting volunteers to help with the effort from 7-10 p.m. “It’s a lot of manual labor to bring them down to beach clean them up and put the masts up, explained Duley, who encouraged people to volunteer their help this weekend. “Many hands make light work.” Those interested in volunteering this Saturday or in participating in the Learn to Sail

program may contact Duley at 572-9477 or by visiting www.boatthebay.com. The program will be held Tuesday, July 27, through Saturday, July 31, and Tuesday, Aug. 3, through Saturday, Aug. 7. Sessions for youths will be held from 1-4 p.m. and sessions for adults will be from 5-8 p.m.

Participants will receive a U.S. Sailing certification book upon completion of the program. The cost is $175 per program with registration also available by contacting the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department at 324-7709.

Library has curbside book return installed PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh Public Library has a new addition. The library recently unveiled a new curbside book return box, accessible to patrons by vehicle at the corner of Brinkerhoff and Oak streets. Funded by library patrons and community donors, the box is capable of holding more than 330 books and other library items. The box was suggested by Jamie Marshall in May 2008, and has taken two years to fund. Marshall, with two small children, had difficulty finding a parking place near library so she could return her books. Since that time, a large number of donors have stepped forward to show their community spirit by generous donations. In addition to the general public, the book return box is expected to be especially useful to the disabled, the elderly and parents with chil-

dren. The library board of trustees thanked the following donors: Donna E. Herbold, Robert T. and Helen Booth, James Rothe and Kathaleen Miller, E.J. and E.W. Burke, Francine C. Luck, Louise Meisenheimer, Karen F. Peryea, J. Derek and Helen Allan, Gina L. Doty, Brian Poitrass, Neta E. LeBlanc, Eleanor and Irving Goldman, Joseph and Lynne Hubbard, Peggy Murphy, Lola Johnson, Matt Loach, Sharon A. Bickford, Lisa Lewis, and Morris and Brenda Towne, given in memory of Doris Haley, Dannemora Librarian. The board also thanked the Sam’s Club Foundation and Phil’s Dry Cleaning. After approval by city engineer Kevin Farrington, the book return box was installed on a concrete slab by Mike Brodi and the City Public Works Department crew.

ArtQuest brings culture to kids By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Since 2002, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts has been enriching the lives of children through their ArtQuest program. This year ’s program, which began July 12, will continue through to Aug. 13, featuring a different continent every week. “We try to pick a diverse collection of projects for the curriculum so the students get a mix of art, music and dance from each culture,” explained education coordinator Ali Della Bitta. “The number and length of time each project takes decides how many different cultures can be represented.” Della Bitta said she plans the curriculum by coming up with “inspiring” projects that can be focused around a theme. “Art can express a lot about the way people live, the environment around them, and the traditions that surround them,” she

said. “This summer ’s six-week ArtQuest program is based on experiencing a different culture each week through its artwork.” The second week, from July 19-23, will focus on Europe, where children will “visit a different country each day.” Week 3, from July 26-30, will have the children learning about Australia, creating their own didgeridoos and exploring the animals of the outback. During the fourth week’s session, from Aug. 2-6, children will explore North America, creating totem poles, dream catchers and sand paintings. During week 5, from Aug. 9-13, the children will learn about Asia, making a pet dragon and origami. The final week, from Aug. 16-20, will focus on South America and children will create rainforest masks, rain sticks and maracas. “Through the ArtQuest program, we hope students take away knowledge of art and its history,” said Della Bitta, “but also the en-

joyment of expression and creativity.” To sign up for a session of the ArtQuest program, contact NCCCA at 563-1604. Each session is $85 and are held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 to 4 p.m. The program is for chil-

dren age 6 to 14 and classes are limited to 15 per group. “Wear your messy clothes or bring a smock,” said Della Bitta, “and get ready to make some art and have fun.”

PLATTSBURGH — The State University of New York at Plattsburgh will now be offering classes in criminal justice at Hudson Valley Community College. In a July 7 ceremony, SUNY Plattsburgh president John C. Ettling signed an agreement with HVCC president Drew Matonak. The agreement will allow the four-year college to offer a bachelor ’s degree program in criminal justice with most classes taking place right on the community college campus in Troy. Criminal justice is one of the largest academic degree programs at Hudson Valley, with approximately 100-120 graduates each year. And, while the University at Albany and The College of Saint Rose accept many of those graduates each year, the Plattsburgh program will add another option for Hudson Valley students, according to Dr. Ann Geisendorfer, the Hudson Valley criminal justice department chair. “We have students this fall who will take advantage of this opportunity,” Geisendorfer said. “Plattsburgh is a SUNY school with an established program, so we are very pleased they will

July 17-23, 2010

be offering this option for continued study right on our campus.” The addition of four-year college offerings is part of a larger trend among community colleges within the SUNY system, according to Dr. Robert Golden, dean and assistant to the president at the SUNY Plattsburgh Branch Campus in Queensbury. Under the state’s guidelines, the community colleges cannot offer bachelor degrees. However, working with four-year colleges, like the one in Plattsburgh, they are able to offer most of the four-year degree requirements right on site. Under the existing guidelines, however, enrolled students will be required to attend at least one class at the SUNY Plattsburgh Branch Campus in Queensbury, because the site is an extension and not a branch campus. “Even so, this is a tremendous opportunity for individuals in the Albany area who, for a variety of reasons, are not able to attend other colleges in Albany and are not in a position to relocate to one of the other comprehensive colleges in the state,” said Golden. “We feel it is in our best interest to be of service to these students.”

Vilas Home kicks off its summer concert series By Katherine Clark

katherine@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH— If you heard music coming from Beekman Street last week, you weren’t alone. The Samuel F. Vilas Home kicked off their first annual summer concert series with a performance by folk musician Gary Sargeant July 8. Every Thursday through Aug. 26, the Vilas Home will host a free concert at 6 p.m. on the back lawn of the property. “[The residents] love the storytelling, they love the singing, they love the family atmosphere that it brings, so we couldn’t ask for better,” said activities director Juliet Dubay. Dubay said at the first event, only 23 of the 43 residents attended the event because of the hot weather. “The 23 that did participate stayed for the entire hour and enjoyed it so much. It was very comfortable; under the tent it was very breezy,” said Dubay. While the idea behind the music is to be entertainment for residents, it goes beyond that, said Dubay. The resident council —

which consists of Vilas residents — is openly inviting community members as well as giving the public a “thank you.” “The residents of Clinton County have treated our residents with an abundance of kindness and sincerity over the past years the home has been in operation,” said Dubay. “Family involvement was one of the reasons [for holding the event], the other was to give back to the community. We have so many volunteers that come through here. They come and do activities, they drive the residents, and we want to say, ‘Please come here and relax.’” Another reason to invite the public, said Dubay, is to support the local musicians performing. “They’ve been so loyal to us over the years that this was a way to announce them,” she said. “Some of them haven’t played, some of them are up and coming musicians and haven’t played for other facilities, and we’d like them to get more exposure.” Artists scheduled to perform include Jack Wolfe & Joanna Dascoli, Roy Hurd, The Sweet Adelines, Charlie Stone’s The Split Rock Band, The Meter Maids, The Cast-

aways, and Rod Driscoll. The full schedule of the summer concert series can be found on the Vilas Homes Web site at www.vilashome.com. “It’s a great time of year to just come and relax and listen to some music, spend some time with this wonderful population,” said Dubay. “They enjoy seeing new faces and people, they enjoy talking to people and

they enjoy the music and they extend the invitation to you to enjoy the music as well.” Concerts are hosted free of charge. Refreshments will be served. Those interested in making a contribution toward future events at the Samuel F. Vilas Home, may send donations in care of the Vilas Home Resident Recreation Fund to 61 Beekman St., Plattsburgh N.Y. 12901.

Fire department receives award from county

Benefit Sunday for Ellenburg Depot man

PLATTSBURGH — The South Plattsburgh Volunteer Fire Department has been awarded a Community Partnership Award by the Clinton County Health Department. The CCHD acknowledged the South Plattsburgh Volunteer Fire Department as a staunch public Health partner with a shared vision of public safety and preparedness. The South Plattsburgh Fire Department’s work to upgrade its facilities came to fruition and resulted in a state-of-the-art community center of which their leadership willingly shares mass clinics (both human and animal) with a minimum of bureaucracy. Beyond this routine connection, they proved to be true preparedness partners by stepping forward at the height of the H1N1influenza pandemic to provide CCHD a staging center, meeting every storage criteria that was essential to efficient operations. They are also now a pre-designated point of distribution site and training locale for the local Medical Reserve Corp. The CCHD appreciates this partnership we are able to better serve our residents and provide a safer and healthier community.

ALTONA — A benefit spaghetti dinner for Ellenburg Depot resident Richard “Rick” LeClair will be held this Sunday, July 18, at the Rainbow Wedding and Banquet Hall, 47 Woods Falls Road. The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and include a Chinese auction, silent auction, 50/50 drawing, and motorcycle run. Entertainment will be provided by Supreme Sounds DJ service. LeClair is a 47-year-old father of two who suffered two strokes on Mothers Day. LeClair was left partially-paralyzed from the strokes and is currently confined to a wheelchair. He is undergoing physical therapy. The benefit will help with LeClair ’s medical expenses. For more information, call Virginia LeClair at 594-7445. Donations may be mailed in care of Rick LeClair to P.O. Box 336, Ellenburg Depot N.Y. 12935.

Kids’ program looking for ‘summer scientists’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County 4-H is encouraging kids to explore the fun side of science. The organization will host “4-H Summer Scientists,” a free program for elementaryand middle school-age youths in Clinton County beginning next month. The program, explained coordinator Alexa King, will be held a three locations — Saranac Town Hall in Saranac, Northern Adirondack Central School in Ellenburg Depot, and the Ted K. Community Center in Plattsburgh. “We went to schools asking kids what they wanted to learn about,” King said of deciding on the curricula.

As a result, children at the Saranac and Ellenburg programs will learn about the science of rocketry and flight, giving them an opportunity to build rockets, gliders and planes. Children at the Plattsburgh program will be introduced to “eco-exploring.” “We take the kids to Point au Roche and show them how easy it is to walk around and appreciate all the great things we have out there,” King explained of the Eco-Explorers program. King said she’s especially looking forward to bringing the program to children in the Northern Tier as past summer programs offered by CCE haven’t reached out that far. “We haven’t had a chance to work with

the young people in Ellenburg before, so I’m really excited we’re expanding to another location,” she said. “I’m really excited.” The Saranac program will be open to youths in grades 3-6 and take place Wednesdays Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Ellenburg program will be open to youths in grades 6-8, beginning Monday, Aug. 2. That program will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and continue Tuesday, Aug. 3; Thursday, Aug. 5; and Friday, Aug. 6. The Plattsburgh program will be open to all elementary- and middle school-age youths and also take place Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25. That program will be held each day from 1-3 p.m.

Each program is free of charge thanks, in part, to funding from the state Office of Children and Family Services. All necessary materials will be provided. Registration is required and is first-come, first-served for the first 20 youth at each location. Though the deadline for registration is Monday, July 26, King encourages parents to still call after the deadline in the event of last-minute openings. “We’ll have a waiting list and, in the event we still have spots open, we’ll still take signups,” said King. “And, if parents want to come and play, too, we welcome that,” she added. For more information or to register, call the CCE office at 561-7450 or send an e-mail to ask37@cornell.edu.

PLATTSBURGH — The USA Luge Slider Search first came to the area last year to find promising young athletes with the potential to one day compete at the international level. On July 17, coaches with the search will return. The slider search has been around for almost 25 years, touring the country to find athletic youngsters between the ages of 11 and 14. “It just made sense to ... start focusing in the region where the tracks are,” said luge coach Fred Zimny. “We’re doing a lot more in the Park City, Utah area and a lot more in the New York, Northeast area.” On July 17, there will be two luge clinics, one from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the other from 2 to 5 p.m. Zimny said he will be looking for both physical skills as well as their skills on the luge itself. “[The clinics] consist of an on-sled portion where they’re actually riding the sleds down a hill and they take maybe six runs or so,” he explained. “During that, the coaches are evaluating them and looking at how their steering control is, their position.” The sled is actually a wheeled luge that the kids will ride down a hill at Clinton Community College, where the clinic takes place. “After that we also do a small battery of fitness tests,” said Zimny. “In the end, we look at how they did on the sleds as well as what their physical skills are.” Although most of the kids who will take part

in the clinic have probably never seen a luge, much less ride one, Zimny said they may still do well. “If a kid is involved in virtually any sport that teaches them how to use their body and teaches them athletic skills, that’s going to transfer very well to luge,” he explained. After the clinic, the coaches will choose those who they find promising to go to a one-week screening camp at the Lake Placid Olympic Center in the fall. “They would stay at the Olympic training center and really get a crash course in luge,” Zimny said. “They go out and slide on the actual luge run every day.” “[It’s] really a very intense week of training so we can really evaluate them and see who has the talent,” he added. Following the screening camp, the number of kids are narrowed down and will be named to the Junior Development Team. “It’s sort of the first rung in a ladder that could eventually lead up to an Olympic team one day,” explained Zimny. Those who are interested in taking part in the clinic may call 1-800-USALUGE or visit www.usaluge.org. Although it is recommended kids sign up ahead of time, Zimny said there will probably be room for those who just want to show up the day of the event. There will also be two clinics at CCC Saturday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Sept. 11. “If nothing else, just come out and try it,” Zimny said. “And, if it’s the beginning and the end of your luge career, at least you had a good time.”

North Country Biggest Loser meets goal

Contestants of the North Country Biggest Loser finished off the first “season” losing more than 300 pounds.

Cronk

By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — After four months of diet and exercise, contestants of the North Country Biggest Loser can say they collectively lost 314.9 pounds, rendering it a success. “I thought it went really well,” said the program’s trainer, Mary Duprey. “Most of the people had success.” Although a couple contestants did not complete the session, those who did were still able to meet the goal of an overall 300 pounds lost. “They were pretty excited,” Duprey said of the contestants when they passed their goal. “I know the last couple of weeks they were really pushing.” Duprey herself was also challenged during the program.

“I’ve never done anything like that before,” she said. Hoping to have a second session beginning in the fall, Duprey has already thought about what she’d like to change. “It’s hard to do group things when you have such a diverse group,” she explained. “I think that’s what I would focus on next time. Trying to get the same skill level together.” Steve Peters, superintendent of the city’s recreation department, is currently working with city council members to expand the program for its next “season,” including more trainers and 40 contestants. Contestant Jim Snook is already looking to be a part of the support group for the next session, as he found North Country Biggest Loser made a “huge impact” on his life.

“I think I started the program at 324 [pounds],” Snook said. “My last weigh-in was 264.” By reducing his caloric intake to about 1,200 calories a day, Snook not only lost 60 pounds, but several inches around his waist. “I probably was wearing a 46. I probably should have been at a 48,” he said. “I am floating around right now and am morethan-comfortable in a 40.” Overall, the whole experience of North Country Biggest Loser was “incredible” for Snook. “Being overweight is lonely,” he said. “You’re fighting with yourself. You feel like you’re by yourself. But, when I got into this program, I was immediately embraced by people that were just like me.” Through the program, Snook was also able to run a 5-kilome-

ter race July 11, during the North Country Biggest Loser 5K walk/run at the PARC Oval. “It’s better than anything I’ve ever done before,” he said of the race. “I’ve never ran in a 5K.” Although Snook has yet to take a stress test, he is also certain he will be coming off his blood pressure medication. For Snook though, the experience of the program not only affected him, but his family as well. “My wife has lost almost 25 pounds,” he said. “We eat healthier at home.” Snook is also working to help his mother and sister lose weight, through support and helping them to count calories. His personal goal is to lose 60 more pounds.

gri-Mark is owned and controlled by dairy farm families from New England and New York. Our farmers work together in the marketplace so they can receive the highest possible price for all of the milk their farm produces and the best legislative representation possible on dairy issues. At Agri-Mark, we have two great brands that create great local markets and generate income for our farmers. Our awardwinning Cabot brand of Vermont cheddar cheese, butter, and other dairy products continues to

the ‘burgh

grow each year, adding to our farmers’ milk checks. Our Cabot cheese again won the title of “World’s Best Cheddar” in 2006. Agri-Mark farmers also own the McCadam brand of New York dairy products, and that investment is generating income for them as well. In 2007, McCadam won first place at the U.S. Cheese Championships in Wisconsin and the title “America’s Best Cheese!” Agri-mark had a record year of profits in 2007 and the future looks bright!

Getting hooked on some groovin’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — When Groove Junkies come to town, the band travels a long way to get here. However, if you ask them, they’ll tell you it’s worth the trip. “We absolutely love the fans here,” said Keith Vidic, bassist for the Waterbury, Conn. band. Vidic and his bandmates — rhythm guitar player and lead vocalist Eric Bleile, rhythm and lead guitarist Bryan Lendroth, drummer Chris Breton and lead vocalist Trish Radil — have been playing the Plattsburgh area for the past two years, first playing at Olive Ridley’s. The self-proclaimed “modern rock party band” has been entertaining audiences playing both originals and covers since 2001. “We came up with hundreds of possible names for the band, and it came down to “Groove Junkie” or “Hippopotamus and the Funky Monkey,” said Vidic. “We chose Groove Junkie because it was shorter and easier to say, although I still liked the Hippo one.”

Clubs tended to announce the band as “the Groove Junkies,” so the band just went with it, adding an “s” to their name,” said Vidic. “Our original idea for the music we play was modern rock, energy music with a groove feel,” explained Vidic. “Something you could dance to but still be entertained by watching the band perform.” Eventually, the band added to that theory, playing songs people know, but that aren’t usually seen performed by bands. “Having both a male and female singer gives us a lot of flexibility to play all types of music,” said Vidic. “I think we put our personalities into our sound and our show,” said Lendroth. “We tend to pick songs with energy that will keep the crowd going and wanting to see more.” The band has a new demo in the works, with plans in the meantime to play a charity fundraiser this summer. Though the majority of their gigs are in their native Connecticut, that doesn’t mean the Groove Junkies will be off the Plattsburgh radar. “You can find us all over Connecti-

cut, New York, Massachusetts and this winter up in Vermont for various shows,” said Vidic. “I don’t think booking started yet for Olive Ridley’s come fall, but I’m sure we’ll be back there a few times before next summer,” added Lendroth. And, the fans are what make the more than 500-mile trip to Plattsburgh worth the drive. “Fans in Plattsburgh seem to appreciate us more I think,” said Breton. “The cover scene is getting so over-saturated in the Northeast these days and I don’t think there are as many cover bands in the Plattsburgh area as there are in Connecticut.” “We love the fans in and around Plattsburgh — some of our most dedicated fans hands down,” said Radil. “We’ve even had some drive five hours to come see us in Connecticut. (Editor’s Note: Groove Junkies will perform Friday, July 23, and Saturday, July 24, at the Naked Turtle on Dock Street. The show will begin at 10 p.m. Their complete schedule can be found on their Web site, www.thegroovejunkies.com. They may also be found on Facebook by searching the keyword “Groove Junkies.”)

Fraternity brothers donate hundreds to childhood literacy PLATTSBURGH — The brothers from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh’s Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity want to support childhood literacy. As a result, the chapter has traditionally held an annual bowl-a-thon, raising money for the national “Books for Kids” campaign. This year, however, the group wanted to do more and to make their efforts local. So, they set to work hosting a table in Angell College Center and “storming the dorms” to gather donations. Then, to top it off, they held the inaugural SigTauStock, a familyfriendly event featuring live music. These efforts netted $750 and 50 books, all of which were donated to the Child Care Coordinating Council of the North Country for Journey into Reading, an early literacy program. The program sends volunteers to read to families in Plattsburgh’s Champlain Centre mall from 4:30 to 6 p.m. every Thursday. After hearing a story or two, the children who attend get to pick out a free book. The program has given away 25,000 books during the last eight years. With around 100 books given away weekly, the fraternities’ donation will amount to about a month and a half worth of books. “Every penny will be used to buy books,” said Alice Sample, coordinator of the program, who was very impressed by the men of the fraternity. Sample went to SigTauStock and found

Dyson graduates basic training

Helping Haiti

Students from Momot Elementary School raised $1,724.66 earlier this year for victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The money was presented to Jeanie D. Roberts, executive director of the North Country chapter of the American Red Cross, seen here surrounded by students.

GREAT LAKES, Ill. — Navy Seaman Blake E. Dyson recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Dyson completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ''Navy'' flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Dyson, a 2006 graduate of Plattsburgh High School, is the son of Lorri A. Dyson of Plattsburgh.
