Autism Awareness Walk returns later this year but with same focus By Jeremiah S. Papineau

This year’s Autism Awareness Walk, which is slated for Saturday, Oct. 2, has gained attention thanks to other events hosted to help local families affected by autism and autism-related disorders. One recent event was a yard sale hosted by, in no particular order, Dr. Patricia Egan, Kristie Billups, Lisa Briscoe, and Joan Hubbard and Christina Zielinski. Photo submitted by Kristie Billups

PLATTSBURGH — It’s an event that’s been five years in the making. The fifth annual Autism Awareness Walk will be held at the PARC Oval on the city’s south side Saturday, Oct. 2. The walk has traditionally been held in April in conjunction with Autism Awareness Month, however difficulties in finding time to organize the event for April was difficult this year, said organizer Laura Carmichael. “It was a difficult year for my son, particularly,” said Carmichael, whose 8-year-old son has the developmental disorder. “And, we’re all volunteers so it’s sometimes tough to find time.” The change in the month of the walk this year doesn’t mean those behind the event are any less serious, noted Carmichael. Hundreds of hours have gone into planning the walk and other events surrounding it, like a recent yard sale, movie night at Cumberland 12 Cinemas and an upcoming softball tournament. “We’re hoping [the other events] help promote the walk a bit more,” said Carmichael, who credited people like Lisa Briscoe and other faithful volunteers for putting on such events. Briscoe, who organized a yard sale to benefit the walk during the recent Point Au Roche Yard Sales, said she developed a passion for working with children on the autism spectrum through her work as an occupational therapy assistant at Champlain Valley Educational Services. However, autism is something that has also touched her life personally, she said. “Autism runs in my family,” explained Briscoe, “so, I’ve seen and experienced first hand the difficulties of living with autism.”

Though she has volunteered at the Autism Awareness Walk for the past several years, Briscoe said she decided to take a more active role in the event this year by becoming a member of the walk’s planning committee and hosting the yard sale. It was simply because she believes in the cause of raising money to help local families struggling with autism. “The Autism Awareness Walk uses funds raised to promote education by bringing conferences to this area that will help parents, therapists, educators, and pediatricians to become more aware of the early warning signs as well as what they can do to help these special kids,” said Briscoe. “Promoting autism awareness is important because research shows that children who receive early intervention are much more apt to keep up with their peers in later years.“ Funds raised are also used to promote autism programs such as MVPKids, a sporting league for children on the autism spectrum, and NEXUS, a program overseen by Dr. Patricia Egan at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, which teaches social skills to children on spectrum. “All the money is staying local,” emphasized Carmichael. “We’re helping local families with local programs instead of sending money somewhere else.” That’s important to Carmichael, who wants to help educate and support others grasping to understand the challenge of autism and autismrelated disorders. “People definitely know much more about it now than they did a few years ago,” she said. “There’s still a lot that isn’t known about autism, but I feel fortunate to have a child with autism in this era rather than back in the day when they didn’t know as much about it.” The Oct. 2 Autism Awareness Walk will start with registration and family-friendly activities such as an obstacle course and free horse and carriage rides at 9 a.m. Local musician Benjamin Bright will perform from 910 a.m., with the walk to immediately follow. Refreshments will be served. “There’s always lots of stuff to do,” said Carmichael. “We try to make it a little bit bigger and better every year. It should be a fun day.” Registration for the walk may be done in advance on-line at or the day of the event. Donations for the Autism Awareness Walk may be sent to P.O. Box 1036, Dannemora N.Y. 12929. For more information, contact Carmichael at 570-7225 or via e-mail to

PLATTSBURGH — It’s back with a combination of old favorites and potentially new traditions. The 13th annual Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Weekend will be held Friday, Sept. 10, through Sunday, Sept. 12, with many returning activities and a few new events, said event co-chair Gary VanCour. “Everyone always wants to know what’s new, so here’s what’s new,” VanCour said during a press conference Aug. 26. Reenactors will kick off the celebration early, with a march from Dewey’s Tavern in the town of Champlain to the town and city of Plattsburgh. The three-day walk will consist of stops in the hamlets of Chazy and West Chazy to set up camp, and finally in Plattsburgh where memorial ceremonies will be held at at Culver Hill and Halsey’s Corners. “The march into Plattsburgh will take three days to do, just like the British army did. They will be going to various communities on the anniversary dates that the British did in 1814,” explained VanCour. Also new this year will be an addition to a memorial on Crab Island. On Sept. 10, a memorial will be dedicated, formally identifying British soldiers killed in battle for the first time in 196 years. “Jo and Roy Carter, friends from England who have consistently supported this commemoration weekend, have seen to it a monument has been made commemorating the British dead that are buried in Crab Island,”

said VanCour. “There’s been one there for the Americans but none for the British until now.” In the town of Beekmantown, a new reenactment site will be hosted on Saturday, Sept. 11. “The First Bloody Encounter” will commemorate the September 6, 1814 skirmish between the British and American forces. The site, behind Beekmantown’s town hall on Spellman Road, will show spectators a different perspective of the various land battles, said VanCour. “There’s a pathway there in the woods that looks almost exactly the way it would look in 1814,” he said. “This is going to be new and different ... people can attend and have plenty of time to get back into the city for the events going on there.” Other new events back in the city, like the Plattsburgh Noon Rotary Club’s Bed Race and a soup cook-off hosted by the National Alliance on Mental Illness of the Champlain Valley will help round out the weekend. Downtown Plattsburgh, particularly around City Hall Place, will transform to a 19th century setting during the weekend, and be home to several music acts and performances. “During the week there’s a concert every night,” said VanCour. “There’s a mixture of varieties of music that would satisfy, we would hope, everybody’s musical tastes. We could call this the Plattsburgh Music Festival with the number of different varieties of groups we’ve got going on.” One particular performance event co-chair Christopher “Kit” Booth is looking forward to is by Her Majesty’s Royal Marine Band of Cobourg, Ontario, Saturday evening. The band will perform at Stafford Middle School, and make their appearance extra special by performing “The March to Plattsburgh,” a piece that hasn’t been publicly performed

since 1916. “It was written especially for the camps that were here prior to and during the First World War. It was written just for Plattsburgh,” said Booth. “It hasn’t been heard in almost a hundred years.” Events like the Plucky Rooster Contest, which tests people’s creative skills in assembling model roosters out of everyday materials, will be among the returning events this year. “These are fun-type roosters that are made of goodness knows what — something out of your garage, something out of your trash heap. Who knows,” said Booth. “It’s a fun thing.” Other returning events during the weekend include the Cannonball Fun Run at the PARC Oval and the Battle of Plattsburgh parade. However, this year, the parade will start an hour earlier, at 1 p.m. “We had so much going on after it we tried to move it up so we had room for the things that were coming afterwards,” said Booth. During the press conference, winners of the annual Battle of Plattsburgh Association Poster Contest were announced. Emily Lynn Verrillo, a student at Morrisonville Elementary School, took home first place. Elizabeth Edwards of Seton Academy took second while Jacob Islas of Saranac Elementary took third. Each students received a U.S. savings bond and souvenir button featuring their artwork. Verrillo’s button, however, was the only one mass produced. The buttons, which are being sold for $10 each, give the bearer admission to all museums and events during the commemoration weekend.

NAMI:CV serving up comfort at this year’s Battle of Plattsburgh

Inaugural cook-off to feature soups from local restaurants, businesses PLATTSBURGH — The people behind the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Champlain Valley think they’ve found the perfect recipe for a fundraiser — a soup cook-off. The nonprofit mental health services organization, which serves Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, will host “Battling Stigma Together: Soup Cook-Off,” as part of the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Weekend Sunday, Sept. 12. Theresa Bennett, a member of the NAMI: CV board of directors, said the event will consist of 10 local restaurants and businesses submitting entries in two categories — “Most Comforting” and “Most Unique” soups in the Champlain Valley. The fundraiser came about after Bennett and other board members were brainstorming for what could become a signature event for NAMI: CV. “We wanted to do something that would get [NAMI: CV’s] name out there as well as be a fundraiser for them,” said Bennett. “It has a lot of meaning to those of us who are involved with NAMI, because it ties in so well with the mission of our organization — providing comfort and support for the mentally ill and their families and fighting the stigma that’s commonly attached to people with brain disorders.” Participating businesses in NAMI: CV’s inaugural soup cook-off will be Ground Round, Irises Café and Wine Bar, Michele’s Fine Dining, Great Adirondack Soup Company, Butcher Block, Cricket’s Casual Food and Spirits, Gus’ Red Hots, Olive Ridley’s, Mangia, and Conroy Organics.

“We’ve actually had no trouble at all enlisting the help of restaurants,” said Bennett. “I think we could have had more, but we wanted to start small, make it successful, and build on that.” Soups will be set out on tables along City Hall Place in close proximity to the other Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration activities beginning at 11:30 a.m. People will be able to buy tokens which they can use to purchase samples of the soups and to vote for ones they feel best represent each category. Samples will be served with bread donated locally by Panera Bread. Winners will be announced on the steps of City Hall immediately following a concert by Inisheer. Hand-crafted awards by local artist Kelly Jarrard will be presented. “We’re hoping this will be a yearly thing and that restaurants will be really interested in earning these titles,” said Bennett. While recognition of participating restaurants and businesses will be a big part of the event, so will raising awareness about the free services provided by NAMI: CV, said Bennett. “We’re hoping more people will become aware of our organization through this because we’re one of those organizations you know is there but you may not know what it does,” said Bennett. “It’s invaluable to the community.” “A variety of ingredients mixed together make a healthy soup,” added Bennett. “A variety of people working together makes a healthy community. A healthy community working together can battle stigma and enable everyone to reach their full potential.” For more information about NAMI: CV or the upcoming soup cook-off, contact the organization’s office on Healey Avenue at 561-2685.

City and Town with Don Kasprzak and Bernie Bassett A

ugust was a busy month as activities all over the North Country seemed busy as ever! I participated as a sand sculpture judge again this year at the beach. I continue to be amazed at the creativity of all involved. I attended the Plattsburgh Police Academy graduation. I was very proud of all the graduates as they will be protecting our communities for us in the future. I welcomed administrators from three counties who were attending a homeless veterans seminar at VFW Post 125. This seminar brought attention to this serious issue. The city held a groundbreaking for the initial construction phase for the Saranac River Trail project. I attended a ribbon-cutting for Michele’s Fine Dining. The Battle of Plattsburgh Committee held a press conference announcing the annual poster winners and they also provided the schedule for this year ’s event, which will be the best ever. I had the privilege to attend the grand opening of the new Subaru dealership on U.S. Avenue which was a very special event. The

McBride family invited the public to visit their new facility which is first class, as is the family as well. The FLW held one of their largest regional fishing events which is always first class. I personally appreciate my friendship with these folks as the anglers, their families, friends, and the FLW staff are wonderful people who truly love the North Country. Five Guys Burgers is coming to the city of Plattsburgh which I am very pleased with. The Velo Quebec Bicycle Grand Tour brought over 2,000 cyclists to the North Country which was an outstanding event. And, the Plattsburgh State students have arrived for another exciting year. As I mention often, I dealt with many constituent problems which is the norm. We have started our 2011 department budget sessions, which will be very challenging. We have four new downtown businesses that recently opened, which is great news and hopefully will be supported by the public. As summer winds down, we will begin to deal with fall and winter issues that are coming. Until then, however, everyone enjoy the good weather while it lasts! Thanks! Don Kasprzak is mayor of the city of Plattsburgh.


n August we lost two key department heads with the retirement of Effa Sullivan and Dave Comfort. Our challenge will be to find replacements who are as skillful and dedicated as Effa and Dave were. Change, as I shared last month, is inevitable. It is our job to make change an opportunity to become energized and challenged with new ideas and innovation. This month has been like all others with a never-ending list of e-mail, snail mail, meetings and day-to-day management issues that have kept me busy. Each decision must be done with the understanding it will help us achieve economic stability by expanding our tax base to help keep the cost of services under control. New businesses also bring jobs and opportunity for residents of the town and the Champlain Valley. The Strategic Tourism and Planning Committee, that I am also a member of, has hired a special consulting firm to develop a Destination Master Plan. In the past, I have spoken about the town’s new master plan and how it will guide our decision making for a number of years to come. The Destination Master Plan will help guide the Strategic Tourism Planning Committee and how the occupancy tax, and other funds

that leverage regional tourism, will be spent. The strategic planning process will identify strategies to leverage our marketing plan, helping us to become more of a destination for tourism, a major part of our economy. This project compliments our goals and vision for the future that will bring new opportunity to our region and to the town. The economy has not responded as fast as we wanted but there are still plenty of reasons to remain optimistic. We continue to work with new development projects and new investors. Our Planning and Codes and Zoning Board meetings have been busy with a growing number of new projects that are coming or interested in coming to the town. This is good news for everyone and, though we are just coming to the end of summer 2010, I am confident a number of new projects will begin in the spring of 2011! We must keep our focus and make decisions that will bring prosperity now and in the future. We will not let short-term thinking, often an easier path to take, get in the way of our vision of the future. Remember to drive safely and watch out for the children as we begin another school year. Bernie Bassett is supervisor of the town of Plattsburgh.

PSU opening day features ‘most diverse’freshman class PLATTSBURGH — The State University of New York at Plattsburgh is welcoming its most diverse freshman class yet, according to this fall’s college admissions statistics. Even though it’s slightly smaller than last year ’s, the 1,015member fall freshman class exceeds the university’s enrollment goal of 975 students. “They represent less than half

of the overall number of applications,” said SUNY Plattsburgh president John C. Ettling. The number of total undergraduate applications, in fact, was up by 10.3 percent over last year, yet the college has capped enrollment to ensure small class sizes and a quality education. “We’re trying to limit the size of the student body here because we believe that there is a point be-

yond which things start to come apart; they start to deteriorate,” Ettling said. In addition, more than 20 percent of SUNY Plattsburgh’s incoming freshmen come from minority backgrounds. It’s a number that’s been steadily climbing as well — compared to about 17 percent in 2009 and about 16 percent in 2008. Among the 2,830 students mov-

ing into SUNY Plattsburgh’s 12 residence halls was Jenn Kane, a political science major from Somers. “I would like to get an internship in the state government, and, eventually, I’d like to work on Capitol Hill,” she said. “I picked Plattsburgh because it was really affordable, and I think I have a good chance to have opportunities here.”

Welcoming Kane and other new freshmen were residence hall advisers like Nicholas Cappon, a senior political science major from Rochester. Cappon said he’s loved his SUNY Plattsburgh experience because of the diversity of opinion and the support that students get from the academic staff. “There are plenty of opportunities to make something of yourself here,” he said.

Book signing to help Adirondack Medical Center By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Cancer is something M. Dylan Raskin takes very seriously. The disease claimed the life of his mother six years ago, leading him on a mission to eradicate it ever since. The critically-acclaimed author of “Little New York Bastard” and “Bandanas and October Supplies,” is using his star power to draw people in to help others suffering from cancer. Raskin will be signing copies of his books at the Koffee Kat on Margaret Street Saturday, Sept. 18. The signing will double as an event to raise money for Adirondack Medical Center ’s Countess Alicia Spaulding Paolozzi Breast Imaging Center in Saranac Lake. “I’m pretty excited about it. I hope we’re able to get a good chunk of change to give to these people,” said Raskin. Raskin lost his mother to ovarian cancer in September 2004. The book

signing comes at a time of year that has special meaning to him, and as the nation prepares to celebrate October as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. “Every year at this time I think of ways I can slap back at that disease,” said Raskin. However, following the loss of his mother, Raskin didn’t even want to hear the word cancer. “For a good amount of time, I didn’t want to get involved with anything that had to do with cancer. I wanted to get as far away from it as possible,” Raskin admitted. “It’s six years later and it’s now getting a little easier for me to deal with it.” Raskin moved to the North Country from Queens when his mother became ill and stayed following her passing. He became so enchanted with the beauty of the area, the slower pace of upstate and the people who live here, he bought a home in Jay, where he spends half of his time and the other half in Plattsburgh. “I’ve found some of the best peo-

ple I’ve ever met here,” said Raskin. “Even though this is kind of a financially-depressed area, people here will give you the shirts off their backs. And, when you come from the world I come from, you don’t see that a lot.” The generous spirit he’s encountered in the region is what Raskin hopes will motivate people to come out for his event with the intent on helping others. “The hospital my mother and I were involved with in Queens was a hellhole, the doctor was great, but the hospital was a hellhole,” said Raskin. “We never had any programs like [Adirondack Medical Center]. We were grasping greased ropes constantly because there was no one to reach out to.” Raskin is so appreciative of places like Adirondack Medical Center that he said he’s willing to help double the donations received at his book signing. “I’ll match whatever we bring in. We really want to make this as suc-

North Country’s Biggest Loser returns for second season By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — After the success from the first North Country’s Biggest Loser, applications are now being accepted for a second season, which promises to be bigger and better. Last year, 10 people were selected to take part in the first ever North Country’s Biggest Loser. In all, the participants collectively lost more than 300 pounds in just four months. Although there were only 10 who were chosen, more than 40 applications were sent in, leading organizers to consider adding more for this season. “All 43 [applicants] deserved to be in the program,” said organizer Steve Peters, superintendent of recreation for the city of Plattsburgh. “That really led me to wonder, well what would it take to do all 40 people?” Finally the decision was made to go ahead with 40 participants, with four teams of 10 people being created, instead of one large group. However, there will be some more familiar faces within the groups.

“One of the cool parts is that we are including last year ’s Biggest Losers as coaches,” Peters explained. “Two per group.” Peters said last year’s team had a “cohesiveness” that he’s hoping they bring to the groups this year. “They need to kind of … gel a little bit and be their own support network,” he explained. “That’s what happened last year with the group and it really was amazing.” Applications for this season will be due by Sunday, Sept. 12, with the first gathering of the chosen participants being at this year ’s Heart Walk, Sept. 25. “That’ll be the first time they’ll meet as a group,” said Peters. “They’re going to walk as a part of the Heart Walk group. They will choose whether they want to do the 5K or just the mile.” The first official weigh in will follow the walk. Then the next meeting will be Oct. 4, when the weight training, circuit training and cardio workouts will begin, with classes being held every Tuesday and Thursday, through April 1. However, those who are selected for this season should next expect to

see the same kind of results as contestants on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. “No one should expect to see that kind of weight loss,” Peters said. “That’s not the program. We’re looking for safe weight loss.” Another difference in this year’s

program is participants are expected to be a $100 fee to cover the expense of the personal trainers. The membership to the city gym will remain free of charge. “We want everyone to have a little skin in the game. And the pocketbook is probably one of the better

places to put that,” explained Peters. “We want to make sure that people, when they make that commitment, they’re making that commitment, not just mentally, but financially as well; so they’re hopefully compelled to show up and be a part of it.” Last year’s personal trainer Mary Duprey will continue this season, but three more people are still needed, and Peters is currently accepting applications for that as well. The addition of the personal trainers is something Peters sees as a huge benefit, not only for the program, but for the city gym as well. “It will get three more people into the facility as personal trainers,” he said. “It will probably open doors to provide personal training here, which we don’t provide. To have that kind of insight that we don’t have yet, that will get us to another level. I think it will benefit all of the members in the long run.” Applications for the North Country’s Biggest Loser can be picked up at the city gym, 52 U.S. Oval, or can be found on-line at For more information, contact Peters at 3247709.

SOUTH PLATTSBURGH — Todd Ormsby of Ausable Forks dominated a strong 28car field of DIRTcar Modifieds for the first of his career in the 30-lap Dick Nephew Memorial feature on Liquor and Wine Warehouse/Warrent Tire Night at Airborne Speedway Aug. 28. Ormsby collected a bonus for snapping Martin Roy’s win streak as the Modifieds raced “topless” in a throwback to their open-wheel racing roots. Ormsby started eighth in the Adirondack Water Systems No. 26. He passed Dan Brown for the lead on Lap 14 and then drew out to a full straightaway lead that runnerup Pierre Berthiaume and fast-closing Patrick Dupree couldn’t trim. He was met with a teardown challenge in the tech line paid for by a fellow competitor and was later declared to be legal as well as fast. “Everything just came together tonight,” Ormsby said. “I actually let up a bit towards

the end and tried to hold my groove and not do anything wrong.” Berthiaume made his way to the front in the outside lane. He caught Brown for second on Lap 21 and held off Dupree to earn the runner-up spot. Dupree came from 15th to finish third. He split two cars to take over ninth at the halfway mark and advanced five more positions in the next five laps. Brown finished fourth – three car-lengths ahead of Matt Woodruff in fifth. The second half of the top ten was Jason Durgan, Martin Roy, Maxime Viens, Leon Gonyo and Don Scarborough. Viens led the first seven laps, but was overtaken on a Lap 7 restart after the race was red-flagged after Craig Ormsby hit Chad Blair, who had spun to a stop, at full throttle. Blair walked to the ambulance and reportedly was not seriously injured. Roy, who had won three straight and five of eight spent the night in double wide traf-

fic. Dupree, the 2008 track champion now appears to have the 2010 title that Roy took away from him last year, well in hand. Robin Wood survived a caution-filled J&S Steel Sportsman feature and drove to his fifth win in the Rent-A-Wreck No. 61. The victory vaulted him past Bucko Branham into first place in the point standings. Shawn Duquette, Nick Heywood, Brandon Atkins and Bill Sawyer completed the top five. Codey Benoit of Milton took command of the Renegade feature in the early going and then withstood a challenge from Robert Gordon for his third win of the season. Gordon had two cracks at Benoit on late race restarts, but couldn’t pull past his door. Defending Renegade champion Lonnie Rivers went from second to fifth and back to third to regain the Renegade point lead. Dave Rabtoy was fourth. Keith O’Neill was fifth. Bill Desotell and Scott Richner were 1-2 in the Bomber feature. Chad Collins was scored in third after Josh Durivage failed tech inspection. The Mini-Modified feature was suspended mid-race to attend to a crash and will be completed this week. Ernie’s Discount Tools Modifieds: 1. Todd Ormsby, 2. Pierre Berthiaume, 3. Patrick Dupree, 4.

PLATTSBURGH — When sitting down for a meal at The Smoked Pepper, don’t expect to get an ordinary taco. The Mexican restaurant, located at 13 City Hall Place, offers only authentic cuisine straight from Mexico. “We base all of our recipes and our cooking on traditional Mexican recipes from different regions of Mexico,” explained owner and head chef Mark Castro. Some of the menu options include Guajilotte en Mole Rojas, a slow-cooked turkey breast simmered in a red mole sauce; chile rellenos fundido, a beer battered Poblano chile pepper stuffed with three cheeses; and various quesadillas. There are also numerous seafood options as well. Castro, who has owned the restaurant for five of the seven years since it opened, works to remain true to the Mexican culture, not only with the recipes, but with how he gets many of the ingredients. “People don’t realize Mexican is not just Tex-Mex,” he said. “It’s not just tacos and beans and rice, and a drive thru with a burrito. It’s made up of the family going out to the farmer ’s market or gathering from their own farm, and then preparing whatever they have.” Castro receives a good portion of the ingredients from places such as Fledging Crow in Keeseville, a community supported agriculture program. “Why buy from an outside source, when we can put our money right back into our neighbors’ pocket,” he explained. The food at the restaurant is also the freshest possible,” Castro said. “Our inventory doesn’t sit on the shelves,” he explained. “We make salsa sometimes two to three times a day.” Another popular part of the restaurant can be found behind the bar. Although there are various types of alcoholic beverages available at The Smoked Pepper, the most popular are the margaritas. “I think they’ve grown [in popularity] as our clientele grows,” said Castro. “It’s something we’re known for, that’s for sure.” However, Castro can’t take credit for the margaritas. That he passes on to the restaurant

manager Glenn LaBarre. “He’s the master mixologist when it comes to that,” Castro laughed. “He’s very good at what he does.” With at least 15 types of margarita flavors available, and numerous types of tequila in stock, Castro said they have a pretty strict training process when it comes to the beverage. With the popularity of the restaurant – Castro admits it’s often difficult for people to get a table on Friday and Saturday nights — Castro has some plans for the future, including expansion. “We’re looking at branching out,” he said. “There’s nothing that we won’t take on. Both my wife and I have a very strong background in catering and we’re more than willing to take on any catering job there is.” The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Friday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a special brunch menu available.

By Jeremiah S. Papineau SYRACUSE — This band has got the beat. The Tim Herron Corporation formed about 10 years ago when the band’s namesake, Tim Herron, and friends P.J. Bullock and Eric McElveen lived in an old firehouse on Syracuse’s north side. Bullock, the band’s original drummer, and Herron were in another band at the time with McElveen as their manager. The group consequently broke up and McElveen filled the bass slot, leading to the formation of the Tim Herron Corporation. The band, which today also consists of sidemen Jay Barady on mandolin and Mark Nanni on keys, comes from “a very rootsy background,” combining extended jams of rock and roll, bluegrass, folk and attitude into a blend they call “AmeriBeat.” “The Grateful Dead only extended their songs

because the songs were good and we take that to heart when we develop our music,” explained Herron. “The jam is only a small portion of the song, melody goes a long way and the song also has to serve the party. We feel our shows are conversations, we touch on political subjects as well as emotional and we like to talk about it through our songs and encourage a dialog with our listeners.” Herron first began playing Plattsburgh as a sideman with a group called Dexter Grove “many moons ago,” he said. While playing with the group — which included Jim Loughlin, drummer for the popular jamband moe. — Herron fell in love with the Monopole. “It’s a staple on the jamband scene and we’ve always loved being there and the vibe from the people,” said Herron. The Tim Herron Corporation stopped touring for awhile while McElveen was living in Los Angeles, only playing a handful of gigs a year. When Herron and his band decided to head back

Tim Herron Corporation to bring ‘AmeriBeat’sound to Backwoods Pondfest on the road again, the Monopole was “on our radar from the get go,” he said. “Making that a regular stop again was important to us,” said Herron. The band came back to Plattsburgh in the spring of 2009 for the first time in about six years and when they did, they noticed “a huge change.” Luckily, it was one for the better. “The vibe was even better than before and there was a buzz in the air,” said Herron. “All the cafés and shops were very exciting to see, it seems like the town got even more hip then it was six years ago and that can’t be said about

upstate New York towns everywhere.” The Tim Herron Corporation released its latest album, “Trivium,” last November and is currently working on its next compilation. The band is now gearing up to play Backwoods Pondfest at Twin Ponds Campground in Peru Saturday, Sept. 11, and the Sterling Stage’s Last Daze of Summer Sept. 16-19 in Cayuga County. (Editor’s Note: The Tim Herron Corporation will perform at Backwoods Pondfest next Saturday at 1:15 p.m.The band can be found on-line on Facebook and MySpace and at where free downloads of their music are available.)

Monopole Madness to help keep the Lumber Jills rollin’ By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — In just five short months, the North Country Lumber Jills went from an idea, to a fullfledged roller derby team. But to continue rolling on the right path, they need help from the community. Kimberly Cummins, president and founder of the Lumber Jills, said currently the team is made up of about 15 women. “It’s amazing,” Cummins said. “The amount of girls that are interested and how dedicated everyone has been … in just this short amount of time has maintained that same intensity as when we started.” However, the current practice space is not ideal for the skating sport. The team practices at the parking lot behind the Amtrak train station, which has not been easy. “The only thing that’s difficult about that area is that we can’t do anything that would possibly cause injury,” Cummins explained. “Which is a lot of the pack stuff, which is what we need to learn.” When the girls do fall during practice, it’s definitely not a smooth landing. “If you [fall] it’s like a cheese grater,” said Cummins. “It’s just asphalt.”

Finally the team has found a new location for practices and eventually bouts, but it won’t come cheaply. “Right now we just acquired access to the city gym,” Cummins explained. “But, it’s $45 an hour to use the whole gym, and we were anticipating using it twice a week for two hours a pop.” According to their Web site,, the

current cost for dues is $50 a person, per month. “That’s kind of high, especially because we have some people who are financially just getting by how it is,” she said. “The equipment alone has been a lot.” In order to ease the financial burden, the team will host Monopole Madness, this Saturday, Sept. 4, from

4 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Monopole, 7 Protection Ave. “It’s going to be a really fun night,” Cummins said. “There’s going to be a lot to do. It’s not like your normal night at the bar.” Throughout the evening various bands will take the stage — Secret Secret Dino Club, a pop group from Saratoga; Bike to the Future, a punk band from Plattsburgh; Forever Endeavor, a two-piece rock band, also from Plattsburgh; More Faster, a ska band from Middleton; and Plattsburgh’s party funk band Eat.Sleep.Funk. will continue throughout the rest of the evening. “It’s really a nice mix,” said Cummins. “There’s just a variety of music, which really isn’t available at the bar scene.” The event will also feature Sharpie tattoos by Lumber Jills member Liz Allen, Dollar-a-Minute massages, and a photobooth. We ask for a donation on the Sharpie tattoos because it takes her awhile to do them and it’s all personalized,” Cummins said. Admission to the evening is also by donation, with $3 to $5 suggested. “We’re hoping to get more events in the future to keep the dues low and kind of make sure that we’re reaching our goals … and improving our sustainability,” said Cummins. “Then, we

September 4 - 10, 2010

can actually bout and the people who support this kind of stuff can actually see where their money is going.” The team is already preparing for their next event, Fresh Meat and Greet, which will be held at the North Country Food Co-op, Friday, Sept. 17, from 5:30-7 p.m. The goal is for people to come for a Q & A session. The team is also looking for more potential team members, referees, and other volunteers. Most of all, they are in need of a coach. “We have a coach of sorts right now,” said Cummins, referring to teammate Marissa Buergin. “But it would be nice to have someone outside of the team coach us. She’s a player and acting as a coach … but it kind of cuts away from her being able to practice.” Cummins said all they are looking for in a coach is a decent skater and an idea of how the game is played. “If you have a good ability to push someone and to make them try their hardest,” she said. “Or you know how the game is played and could relay that information correctly in a manner everyone can digest.” For more information about the North Country Lumber Jills, visit their Web site, find them on Facebook, or email
