Dragon-R-Butts aims to kick butt at Dragon Boat Festival PERU — Lois Roberts always wants to help children. And, when she saw a special on Mountain Lake PBS last year about the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival in Burlington, Vt., she was unknowingly looking into her future and a way to do just that. “I had thought then what a cool thing to participate in,” she said. When it was announced this year ’s festival would benefit CampTa-Kum-Ta — a camp in South Hero, Vt., that helps children battling cancer — Roberts said, “the stars aligned.” “How could I not try to form a team and participate,” she said. Roberts has been a supporter of Camp-Ta-Kum-Ta since watching a video on YouTube of a girl named Grace, who attended the camp, and then gave a testimonial about what camp has meant to her. When the Peru Lions Club — of which Roberts is a member — hosted a presentation in April from Camp Ta-Kum-Ta Executive Director Ted Kessler, she learned Grace had since lost her bat-

Ta. Local Zumba instructor Tracy Posada even got in on the act by making a donation to Roberts’ team through proceeds from her July classes. The team has also had the Dragon Boat Festival T-shirts and hats they’ll be wearing the day of the festival signed by fans for a donation. However, there’s still room on their shirts for the inspiration for this year ’s participation, said

Getting together a team for the Dragon Boat Festival hasn’t been an easy task, but Roberts has managed to find 22 people willing to take on the strenuous task of paddling and collecting pledges for their participation. “Twenty-two people who, some I know, some I don't, but are willing to be a part of such a wonderful fundraising experience,” said Roberts. Roberts’ team — Dragon-R-Butts — will be among more than 70 others that will compete in grueling 300-meter sprint races. Each team member was required to pay a registration fee in addition to giving of their time for the event, said Roberts. “Some more than a day, as we have a practice session, and we have been trying to do extra fundraising,” she said. During the past few months, Roberts and her teammates have kept busy collecting donations that will ultimately help Camp-Ta-Kum-

School supply drive to help elementary students Community Cares Day also planned Aug. 27 By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Through her position as coordinator of the CV-Tec Family Welcome Center, Michele Armani is working with schools within the Plattsburgh City School District to learn how the center can best assist teachers in their jobs of teaching literacy. “We work closely with the schools within our literacy zone because we’re funded to serve any literacy needs withing the 12901 and 12903 zip codes,” explained Armani. “We focus on four core areas: family literacy, health literacy, education and training, and financial literacy.” And, the Family Welcome Center has found a way to do that in the summer months, even when school isn’t in session. The center is hosting a school supply drive for elementary schoolaged children looking for the basic tools of the early literacy and childhood development trade. “We’re looking for crayons, pencils, paper, notebooks ... stress balls, markers, art smocks — anything that elementary school children could use,” said Armani. The idea for the drive came through a collaboration between the Family Welcome Center and Bailey Avenue Elementary School, said Armani.

“They found many students did not come to school with all the necessary supplies, especially families with more than one child because it can get very expensive,” she said. Donations are being collected in wooden bins built by the North Country Regional Workforce Investment Board’s Solid Foundations program, which teaches students building trades skills. Bins are located at the Plattsburgh YMCA on Brinkerhoff

Street and St. John’s Catholic Church on Broad Street, with the hope of adding bins elsewhere in the community, said Armani. “If anybody wants their name attached, we’d love to have them,” said Armani, encouraging other establishments interested in hosting bins to contact her. “We’ll do the pick up; you don’t have to do anything.” The school supply drive will continue through the end of the month, at which time donations will be evenly distributed throughout the Plattsburgh City School District, including Seton Academy and Lakeshore Christian School. “We want to serve all of those schools if there’s a need,” said Armani. “We want schools to know they have a lot of support in their community and we want children to have a good start.” The school supplies drive isn’t the only way the Family Welcome Center is reaching out to the community, however. On Friday, Aug. 27, the center will host “Community Cares Day” at the Plattsburgh City School District Offices, 49 Broad St. The event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., will welcome families to learn more about how the center is promoting literacy with partnering organizations like Fidelis, UFirst, Kidsville News!, Cornell Co-operative Extension, Mountain Lake PBS, and the Clinton County Health Department. Some school supplies will also be handed out there as well as school clothing that was also collected from a recent donation drive. For more information about Community Cares Day, making a donation to the school supply drive or hosting a donation bin, contact Armani at 561-0430, ext. 3085.

Fourth annual Hot Rods for Hospice returns this Saturday By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The cars will be lined up and on display as 8 Ball Billiards Café presents the 4th annual Hot Rods for Hospice. The event, slated for this Saturday, Aug. 7, will bring together car enthusiasts and supporters of Hospice of the North Country, the nonprofit organization for whom the family-friendly event benefits. Jay Montpelier, owner of 8 Ball Billiards Café and organizer of the event, said Hot Rods for Hospice has come a long way since it started in 2007, raising thousands of dollars for Hospice. “Right from the get-go we knew this was only

going to get bigger,” said Montpelier. “And, knowing this is only going to get bigger and bigger and better and better is really great.” Amanda M. Bow, director for development for Hospice of the North Country, said with what the event offers, she’s not surprised it’s getting bigger. “It takes a long time sometimes for newer events to pick up momentum, but there’s always a good crowd here,” said Bow. “It gives us an opportunity to get our name out there and promote Hospice and have fun at the same time. There really is something for everyone.” The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with registration for antique cars, classic cars, street rods, tuners, trucks and motorcycles. Cars will be on display beginning at 10 a.m., with a parade to take place

at 12 p.m., led by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department. Live entertainment, kids games, face painting, pony rides, raffles and auctions will help round out the day. Returning this year will be a pig roast at 1 p.m. “We did it the first year, and its back this year with a chicken barbecue,” said Montpelier, who said the pig roast was in high demand for this year. Also new this year will be a volleyball tournament at 2 p.m. Horseshoe and pool tournaments, which have become traditions with attendees, said Montpelier, will also begin at 2 p.m. A display of antique tractors will also be something new this year to draw the crowds. Why add to what has already been a working formula for Hot Rods for Hospice?

“We’re hoping to attract even more people,” said Montpelier, who anticipates approximately 200 cars will be at this year’s event. “We’ve already got people coming from Lake Clear, Vermont, Ticonderoga. People come from all over,” said Bow. The event will culminated at 5 p.m. with an awards ceremony. Awards will be presented to the Best in Show, Top Ten and Favorite 50. Admission to Hot Rods for Hospice is free. The cost to register a vehicle is $15. The cost of the pig roast and chicken barbecue will be $12 for those 12 and older and $6 for ages 5-11. Children younger than 5 eat free. For more information, call Montpelier at 3247665 or Bow at 483-3200.

City and Town with Don Kasprzak and Bernie Bassett J

uly was a very busy month in the city of Plattsburgh and the region! The hot, humid weather has the grass growing and air conditioners working overtime. Circus Smirkus came to the city beach July 2 and 3. Airborne Speedway had great races and fantastic fireworks July 3. The Fourth of July Parade and fireworks brought thousands of people downtown. The following week the Mayor ’s Cup and Regatta again brought many people to the waterfront and downtown. The Boat Parade of Lights started off the weekend and then entertainment, sailing, concerts, kids and family activities in the arts corridor, artist vendors, medieval jousting, and finally fireworks ended the weekend. The Sunrise Rotary did an outstanding job with their involvement for all the events and I hope the public enjoyed themselves. Two fishing tournaments were also held in the region, which brought hundreds of anglers and their families to the area. I have been busy as usual addressing

constituent concerns and city problems during the month. A severe rain storm affected the entire North Country with power outages, hail, downed trees, water and sewer issues, building damage, and accidents. I was very proud of all our city departments in their handling of the storm. I attended a press conference with Col. John Boule and Congressman Owens regarding the Plattsburgh Bay Marina Breakwater. This project will improve boating safety and address the deterioration of the breakwater itself. I spoke to the ABBA Contractors group and answered their questions about present and future development in Plattsburgh. It was an enjoyable evening. As we move into August, we have several fishing tournaments that will keep the waterfront busy. We will continue to deal with summer issues and constituent concerns. We will begin to work on the 2011 budget, which will once again be very challenging. We will do the best we can on bringing a stable and fair budget to our residents. Thanks and everyone have a great August! Don Kasprzak is mayor of the city of Plattsburgh.

O

n the first Wednesday of each month a group of local retired school administrators meet for breakfast. This is a great opportunity for me to meet with old friends and share memories of the time we spent together. As a former building principal, I make an effort to meet with the group whenever my schedule allows. It is always an enjoyable occasion and time well spent with old friends. I take great pleasure in responding to their many questions about what new business or restaurant is coming to the town. They will quiz and challenge me to provide clear and precise answers on a number of issues they have heard or read about. As many of them do not come from the town of Plattsburgh, their perspective is also useful input and feedback. Though there are times when I long for their freedom and travel about the country and the time spent with children and grandchildren, I know my time will come, when this job is done. In this my fifth year serving as supervisor

for the town of Plattsburgh, I continue to face new challenges on a regular basis. I often relate the business of local government to laundry in that it’s never done! The need to focus on the delivery of services while creating a quality of life for residents and interacting with other municipalities, agencies, developers, employees and navigating the world of politics and public opinion can be very demanding! I have learned to appreciate the very complex nature of change. There is a demand for change, but as we have seen, at all levels, that usually means change for everyone else but not me! Still, I remain excited and optimistic about our future. It is often a bit like herding cats, but the signs of progress and change is all around us. We have moved on to the second half of 2010 and the cooler evenings remind us that summer won’t last forever. Time, as always, moves along and refuses to slow down, but the winds of change appear to be in the air now more than ever. I wonder what new questions my friends will have the next time we meet for breakfast and more than that I wonder what new answers I will have to share with them! Bernie Bassett is supervisor of the town of Plattsburgh.

2-1-1 not needed Your article “2-1-1’s future uncertain” in the July 31, 2010 issue is a perfect example of why the state of New York is out of money. According to figures cited in the article, the 211 information system costs the region $85,000 per year and that, in nearly one year the system has been in operation, 293 calls have been handled. That equates to a whopping per call cost of $290. Spending $290 to provide each caller with information that, for the most part, can be located by picking up and using the phone book is ridiculous. Plus, in addition to the up-front call center expenses, it seems quite likely that widespread marketing of the “convenience” of the 211 service ends up steering more people to become consumers of state-provided social services and public assistance, costing taxpayers even more money. It’s past time to pull the plug on this expensive boondoggle. Rick Weerts Port Kent

Clinton County Sheriff’s Department receives $424k to enhance border security jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Law enforcement agencies have been given a financial boost to help with their vigilant task of securing our nation’s border. The Clinton County Sheriff’s Department has received $423,959 in federal funding from Operation Stonegarden, a grant program administered by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency. The funding, explained Sheriff David N. Favro, will be utilized to purchase necessary equipment such as vehicles, license plate readers and cameras to enhance security along the U.S.-Canada border. “[The grant funding] pays for all operation and maintenance of any of the equipment that is utilized during this operation. It pays for all salary and benefits for the officers that are participating in this operation,” explained Favro.

“There’s not one penny that comes out of my local budget to be able to provide this opportunity for the North Country and the entire country.” The sheriff’s department is one of 13 agencies in New York State that applied for and received funding through Operation Stonegarden, and also the recipient of the largest amount awarded in the state this year. The department has consistently received funding from the program since first participating in the border security partnership with the U.S. Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies in 2008. According to Favro, the sheriff’s department then received $329,997 and, in the following year, received $510,309. During the first nine months alone of participation in Operation Stonegarden, the department logged more than 47,855 miles and more than 2,442 hours in patrols. “We have felt for several years that Clinton County is critical to national security. We have

the largest freshwater entrance into the country with Lake Champlain. We have approximately 34 miles of international border with Canada,” said Favro. “When you couple that with the over 1,100 square miles that we’re responsible for patrolling and providing public safety for in Clinton County, we need all the resources we can get.” Stonegarden has solidified a partnership with the U.S. Border Patrol and members of the sheriff’s department, said Favro, allowing law enforcement officials to cover more ground along the northern border and interrupt and possibly prevent any attempts at illegal smuggling and terrorism. “This program, for what has been invested in it in the North Country, has provided more than just securing the borders,” said Favro. “It has built and enhanced a law enforcement partnership that is second to none other in the country.” “The various local counties here in upstate

New York have done and continue to do a great job of working with the United State Border Patrol to secure funding through this grant,” added Norm Lague, agent-in-charge with the U.S. Border Patrol’s Champlain station. “We look forward to working with the agencies through this grant in applying a unified law enforcement approach to border security. Regardless of funding, the eternal vigilance of the community is still the most important thing in helping keep our county and the nation safe, said Favro. “We really do need and implore the use of our local resources and people if they see anything suspicions — vehicles that don’t seem to fit in, individuals cutting through fields, any information — please notify your local law enforcement agency right away and report that to us so we can investigate,” said Favro. “The eyes and the ears of the people are our most valuable tool and we really need to utilize them to our maximum capacity.”

Remembering Cody By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Cody Sarbou, a 2007 graduate from Saranac High School, was known for living life to the fullest. Cody passed away after an automobile accident in Saranac July 24, at the age of 21. A wake was held in his memory July 28 at Brown’s Funeral Home. According to Cody’s mother Joy SarbouJubert, the owners of the funeral home said more than 700 people turned out for Cody’s wake, more than they had ever seen at a service in the past. During visiting hours, Joy was able to hear the numerous stories people had of Cody. “I always knew he was a good boy,” Joy

said, “but the people coming through the line. What they were saying to me … it’s good to have people know that.” To honor Cody, an estimated 35 motorcycles turned up for calling hours at 6 p.m. in a memorial bike ride set up by Shawn Wood, Cody’s best friend since second grade. “We lived and breathed riding,” said Wood, who rode Cody’s bike to the funeral home, along with Cody’s younger sister Anna Sarbou. “Anything to be done together, it was always me and him. We got Best Buds for senior class.” “It definitely was an emotional thing for me,” Anna said after the bike ride, which began in Redford. “The very first time I had been on one was when my brother first got his bike. The very first time he brought me. Ever since then, I loved to be riding bikes

I was with my brother 24/7.” Following Cody’s death, Wood asked Joy if he could keep Cody’s motorcycle, “because that’s all I have left of Cody,” Wood explained. “She loved it,” Wood said. “They wanted me to have the bike.” Now an official bike ride is being planned to honor Cody and to raise money for a scholarship in his name.

Feral cats still an issue 10 years later By Jeremiah S. Papineau

Quick tip

jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — It’s a problem that many don’t give much thought to, says Victoria St. John, but the fact of the matter is feral cats are a major issue here and across the country. “There’s at least 60 million feral cats in the United States, if not, more,” said St. John, director of the St. John’s Feral Cat Fund. Since 2000, St. John has been working in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties to reduce the population of feral cats — cats that have limited human contact and are often mistakenly referred to as “wild.” In the past 10 years, St. John has helped trap, vaccinate, spay and neuter thousands of cats, releasing many of them where they were found, in the hopes of drastically reducing the number of diseased and procreating cats. “If they aren’t spayed or neutered, these cats can keep reproducing four to five times each year,” noted St. John. Given the rate of reproduction and the number of offspring from each litter, tens of thousands of cats can be added to the local feline population. That can be taxing on donor-supported organizations like the St. John Feral Cat Fund and local animal shelters. “If you have four cats that have litters four to five times a year, that can add up,” St. John said of the expenses for animal care. The goal each year is to mass trap feral cats, collecting as many as 100-200 and having them inoculated prior to “kitten season” during the spring. “It doesn’t always happen, depending on the funding, especially with the economy,” said St. John. The organization relies on fundraisers and donations to fund the veterinary services it receives for the animals as well as in educating communities about their Trap-Neuter-Return program. Though the St. John’s Feral Cat Fund has help from more than 20 volunteers conducting fundraisers and distributing educational literature, the main trapping work is done by St. John,

If a cat approaches you and doesn’t appear threatened, chances are it isn’t considered a feral cat. “There’s a lot of people who think they have a feral cat outside,” said St. John. “Some will call and say it’s eating out of their hand, but a feral cat won’t come up to you and do that. Feral cats don’t like human contact.” More tips may be found on-line at www.alleycat.org.

her family and members of the organization’s board of directors. “We’re on a shoestring budget,” said St. John. “We could have a great month, do a fundraiser and raise $300-$500 and have one cat that needs an emergency operation, which takes all of that.” “We try to get things donated, but because we’re believed to be competitions with local shelters, that can be tough,” continued St. John. “But, the thing that sets us apart from the shelters is we focus on feral cats and we provide information about them for the public.” In fact, St. John Feral Cat Fund and local shelters work well together, said St. John. “The people at Elmore SPCA [animal shelter in Peru] have been very helpful to our organization. The board members have donated cat food, litter and other things to help us during the last couple of months,” she said. “The problem is so big, it’s so much bigger than any one group can handle,” said Inger Joy, president of the Elmore SPCA board of directors, who noted the donations from Peru shelter have come from surplus donations not specifically earmarked to be used at Elmore. “We share what extra we have. We never take away from our own animals.” Through collaboration between Elmore SPCA and St. John’s Feral Cat Fund coordinated by Elmore SPCA board member Judy Belrose, the organizations are able to take on the feral cat situation.

“They get to use our resources, we get to use them. It’s a mutually-beneficial relationship,” said Joy. “We want to assist them in any way we can. It’s great to network and share resources when we can. And anyone can help.” Those wishing to make a donation to the St. John Feral Cat Fund may send contributions in care of the organization to P.O. Box 2884, Plattsburgh N.Y. 12901. Donations of dry cat food, canned cat food, cat litter, litter pans, pet beds, towels, food dishes, carriers, and toys are always accepted. St. John’s Feral Cat Fund also brings domesticated strays to PetSmart in Plattsburgh where they are put up for adoption. For more information, call St. John at 534-0824.

Vélo Québec cycling organization arrives this weekend PLATTSBURGH — A week-long bicycle tour through the Champlain Valley is promising to bring hundreds of cyclists and thousands of tourism dollars to the region. Vélo Québec, a Canadian-based nonprofit cycling organization, will bring their popular cycling adventure “Le Grand Tour” to the area Aug. 7 through

13, as part of a traveling vacation package. The tour will take participants on a 500mile journey from Adirondack Community College in Glens Falls north to Montréal in a scenic journey meant to trace the steps of the region’s earliest explorers and settlers. In preparation for the event, tourism

partners in Warren, Washington, Essex and Clinton counties are organizing accommodations and entertainment in each of cyclists’ destinations to help provide a memorable experience. The tour route sends cyclists through Westport and Willsboro and past AuSable Chasm on their way north toward Clinton Community College for an overnight stay.

One of the greatest advantages of Le Grand Tour may be the impact it is likely to have on the region, both economically and socially. Tour organizers estimate riders spend more than $300,000 in the regions they tr avel through during the tour. The same study showed 83 percent of participants intend to return to the regions they explored during their visit.

Blood donations on average for National Blood Donor Month B y J ame s K ing Special to Denton Publications PLATTSBURGH — “[Donating blood] is something that is needed,” said local blood donor Debbie Alphonso. “We all have blood, we all have something we can do to help someone in need.” The North Country Regional Blood Center, operated by CVPH Medical Center, saw an average amount of people donating blood this July, which was National Blood Donation Month. In fact, the center is having a pretty good year so far, said blood bank supervisor Jeanine Yanulavich. “We get close to 700 donors a month and that’s probably where we’re at for July,” Yanulavich said at the end of the month. Even though the center is doing well, their number of donors has been slowly declining over the past few weeks. “The summertime hits us hard … we go to schools and colleges and they’re closed during the summer so that diminishes our population of where we go for blood drives,” Yanulavich stated. “We’ve had a couple of drives that weren’t as successful.” With the number of donations slipping, the blood center is looking for more donors — especially people with Type A and O negative blood. “O negative and A negative are very short in demand, we have a short supply of those,” Yanulavich said.

Not only are the different blood types needed but different forms of donations are needed — full blood donation, the one people typically think of when donating blood, and platelet donations. “Full blood donations are generally, from beginning to end counting paperwork and recovery time, takes about half an hour for everything,” said Yanulavich. “The pheresis donation, the collection of platelets … takes up to two hours usually, it is a long process but it’s very crucial.” The pheresis donation is incredibly important as platelets are needed for oncology and openheart patients. It is also very important to try and donate as much as possible, said Yanulavich. “You can donate red cells [full donation] every eight weeks and you can donate platelets every two weeks,” stated Yanulavich, who added donating blood is free and effective in saving the lives of others. “There are always people out there that need blood. It’s the one thing, in this economy where it’s hard to give money, this is free to give and it really does help,” Yanulavich stated. For more information, including how to donate blood, contact the blood center at 562-7406, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. James King is a student intern with the Upward Bound program at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Future 4-H facility, respite home receives its first guests By Sar ah L . Cr onk sarah@denpubs.com MOOERS — As a volunteer for Hospice of the North Country, Ken Lushia understands the need for a respite house in the area. With that in mind, Lushia purchased a home on Route 11 from the estate of Leeward and Margaret Monette about a year ago, and hopes to have it up and running soon as the Leeward and Margaret Monette Respite House. “My goal is to have a place where people can drop somebody off and have them taken care of and then pick them back up after whatever they’re going to do,” Lushia explained. The home also has a carriage house, which Lushia plans to utilize as the meeting place for the Tangled Reins 4-H Club, of which his granddaughter is a member. “I’ve purchased enough property to have horses here,” he said. “We’re going to be able to do horseback riding lessons and different things.” Having horses around is something Lushia sees as a benefit for those utilizing the respite house. “Especially people with disabilities, they like the fact that there’s animals around,” he explained. To find out how well the house flows with people in it, Lushia recently welcomed the Lange family to use the home for a reunion

the ‘burgh

and birthday party. Eight of the nine surviving siblings of the Lange family were able to make it to the 90th birthday celebration of their father Norbert Lange. “We haven’t seen each other in two years,” explained daughter Paula Schares, who said the last get together was for her sister Mary Lafleur. The siblings all live across the country, in states such as Missouri, Florida, North Dakota, Indiana and Minnesota. Since Norbert now lives in Plattsburgh with Schares, however, 35 members of the Lange family came out to the North Country to celebrate. Daughter Pat Foster called the area “beautiful” and said some family members used the visit as a chance to climb nearby Lyon Mountain. Others opted to simply hang around the house, she said. “We’ve been able, because of this house, to get into groups and do different things, (like) cards and conversation,” Foster said. “Because this house is such a wonderful facility, it’s just been perfect for a family get together and getting reunited.” Lushia said having the family using the house was “such a thrill.” “Having them here and being a part of this whole thing, it’s been wonderful,” he said. “It’s a test run to see how this all flows, and it really does.”

Members of Norbert Lange’s family stayed at the future home of the Leeward and Margaret Monette Respite House in Mooers in July, in celebration of Lange’s 90th birthday. Pictured are, in back, from left, Katie Schares, Pat Foster, Lavonne Aull, Dewey Lange, Anne MacIntyre, Peg Hanson, and Peter Schares.

Bringing new life to discarded car seats By Sarah L. Cronk

sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The plastic from old car seats will now take on a new life. During a press conference held at the Sheriff’s Department Aug. 2, Clinton County Sheriff David Favro announced that car seats collected at car seat safety checks because they’ve been recalled or do not meet safety standards will now be recycled. “It’s a very exciting announcement,” Favro said, “especially in the times that we are right now, with recycling being a big concern and with what’s happening to our resources throughout the country.” “It’s always nice when local programs can have a big impact in efforts of recycling and preserving our natural resources for our future,” he

added. The Clinton County Child Safety program, which has been in existence for nearly two decades, previously sent nearly 200 unusable car seats to the landfill each year, where they will remain for an estimated 400 years. However, after receiving an anonymous phone call from a mother last year, who was adamant something useful be done with the car seats, Traffic Safety Coordinator Mitch Carriere began investigating. “We are sending them to a local plastic company in Plattsburgh,” Carriere said. Beginning this past January, the Sheriff’s Department began stripping down the car seats, removing all padding and metal, then sending them to a dock at IntraPac Inc., a local manufacturer of plastic packaging. “We recycle about 90 percent of the product

that we manufacture,” explained Robert Blankenheim, vice president of operations and general manager of Plattsburgh’s IntraPac. “Any defects or scrap, we recycle it. Very limited product goes to the local landfill.” After being sent to IntraPac, the plastic is then shipped, at no cost, to K&B Plastics in Blodgett Mills, where the recycled plastic from about 22 car seats can be manufactured into 20 foot culvert pipes. “We’re still burying the child safety seats,” said Favro. “However, now they’re going to take on a new life, as the form of a drain pipe underground. Not having to generate or use petroleum to create an additional plastic product, but utilize something that is no longer a value to society.” This is good news for Craig Squier, general manager of the Clinton County Landfill. “I think this demonstrates a great initiative on the part of the Sheriff’s Department with finding

an alternative way to dispose of a viable, recyclable product,” he said. “We’re already starting to develop some future plans for expanding this project to perhaps county residents in the future.” Squier said the overall capacity of the county landfill will be improved without the thousands of car seats being deposited there. According to a survey sent out by the Sheriff’s Department to other departments in the state, Clinton County appears to be the only county in the state to have a recycling program of this nature. Currently the parts removed from the car seats before being shipped to IntraPac have yet to find a way to be recycled, but Favro said, “if there is any avenue to be able to recycle it, we will do so.” There will be a child car seat inspection this Saturday, Aug. 7 at the AAA office on Booth Drive and another Sept. 25 at the Saranac Fire Department on Pickets Corners.

Back to school shopping, the Christmas of consignment By Katherine Clark

Katherine@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Fashion Exchange is clearing out summer stock to make room for cozy and trendy fall fashions. For the past 18 years, the consignment store, located at 164 Boynton Ave., has been providing the area with trendy, lightly used clothing for about 60 to 80 percent less than retail. With back to school season around the corner, Fashion Exchange has begun stocking juniors fall fashion and men and women’s fall fashion. “Fall is our busiest season,” said owner Peg Tucker. “In retail, their business is booming during the Christmas season. For us, historically fall is our busiest season.” According to Tucker, those shopping for their back-to-school outfits, often stop by Fashion Exchange before going to the mall. “They’ll have only so much money for backto-school shopping that the more clothing they get here the more they will have for those token, more expensive purchases at the mall,” said Tucker. “They can get that Abercrombie hoodie, because they got all their jeans and tops here for a lower price than retail.” However, the consignment shop hits more than just students in the fall. “My theory is people just get really excit-

ed about back-to-school season,” said Tucker. “I think it goes back to the back-to-school shopping we all did as a kid when mom always took us shopping to get new clothes in the fall.” Finding a bargain and shopping wisely has become the new chic in this time of economic uncertainty, Tucker said. “Consumers are taking pleasure in finding bargains rather than splurging in an era where, even for the well-off, ostentatious consumerism has come to be perceived as unattractive,” she explained. Currently summer clothes at the store are being marked down up to 70 percent off, to make room for the new fall fashions, that they began accepting Aug. 1. People who are interested in bringing their clothes in to sell at the consignment store will receive an average of 40 percent of the selling price. The amount is credited to an account set up for the consignor and will accumulate until they pick up a check or use the balance at the store. “We take what we know is going to sell for us and I send them back with the rest of their clothes,” said Tucker. Items not sold within 90 days are brought to local charities in the county. For those wishing to bring their gently used fall fashions for consignment can call Fashion Exchange at 562-2302, to schedule an appointment.

Touring the North Country’s wine country By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com

T

here’s no need to cross the country toward Napa Valley for a wine tour, simply tour the North Country. Lake Champlain Wines, an organization of the Lake Champlain Grape Growers Association of Plattsburgh, will be having its first wine tour, Saturday, Aug. 14 and Sunday, Aug. 15. The mission of LCGGA is to “promote grape growing and wine making in the Lake Champlain Valley with an emphasis on developing a commercial wine and grape industry.” Philip Favreau of Stonehouse Vineyard in Mooers said the Summer Wine Tour will do just that. “There’s now four licensed wineries and they’re trying to promote the fact that there are four wineries in the area and that people can come through and visit and buy wine at all these vineyards,” Favreau explained. Favreau said the wineries are also trying to make people realize they can go on wine tours, walk through the vineyards and learn about cold-hardy grapes, which are grown in this area. “[Cold-hardy grapes] are grapes that don’t need any special protection,” he said. “They’ll withstand 35, 40 below zero.” The money raised during the tour will be going toward advertising and awareness of the vineyards. “I think people are becoming aware of it,” said Favreau. “But I don’t think five years ago anybody anticipated it.” Now, while people are on the wine tour, they’ll see how the area has been able to produce different wines, including sweet, dry and fruit. “There’s a variety for of different kinds of wine for every pallet,” Favreau explained. “Some of these people are fantastic at what they’ve done. These people will see a variety of different pruning techniques and different growing techniques.” For those interested in taking the tour, the cost is $10, and will include a glass that can be taken to each of the vineyards.

Capital Zen brings the funk with a capital ‘F’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

I

t’s not exactly music you can meditate to, but Capital Zen’s got a sound that will make you rock off that Buddha bel-

ly.

The Glens Falls band, which has been rocking out since 2006, consists of Terry Scoville on lead guitar and vocals, Rye Wylie on drums and vocals, Anthony Leombruno on bass, and Scott Hannay on keyboard and vocals. When the band first started, Scoville, Wylie and another bass player were a trio of musicians that came together as a result of a couple of area bands that were disbanding. They played as a trio until very early 2009, when Hannay joined the band during the recording sessions for the band’s self-titled album. Then, Leombruno joined the band after the departure of the original bass player last spring. “The name came from the drastically different musical influences of the original members, all wanting to come together to form something huge-sounding, yet peacefully balanced,” explained Scoville. The band’s sound is a mixture of heavy funk with a progressive rock flow, said Scoville. The combined influences of Nirvana, Primus, Phish, Candiria and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others, is what gives Capital Zen

its sound, said Scoville. That, and trying not to imitate other local bands. “We love listening to other talented local bands in the scene,” said Scoville. “We spend a lot of time figuring out what they’re not doing, and fill in the gaps. We’re not afraid to play anything.” “We play less covers than a lot of groups around here, and our originals have a sort of new, but familiar sound,” said Wylie. The band first played Plattsburgh in 2008, starting with a gig at the Monopole. It was such an exciting performance the band wanted to keep coming back for more. “It’s one of the first places away from home that really gave us a chance to play all night,” said Hannay. “They made us feel very comfortable and able to find our niche.” “One time it was so exciting that we actually had to leave one of our friends behind,” said Rye. “He forgave us.” Capital Zen released its self-titled album in September 2009, along with various other three-piece demo projects done before Hannay joined the band. “We are working hard at writing the next one, and everything is falling into place nicely for it,” said Hannay. “We’ve got a whole new album’s worth of material,” added Scoville, who said the band plans to possibly start recording this fall.

Photo by Ashley Meade Photography (Editor’s Note: Capital Zen’s next performance locally will be at the Monopole, 7 Protection Ave., next Saturday, Aug. 14. The show begins at 10 p.m. Capital Zen will return to the

area in September as one of the bands appearing at Backwoods Pondfest in Peru. Check out the band at www.capitalzenmusic.com or find them on Facebook and MySpace.)
