Coalition releases text of appeal against principal



Locl Girl Scouts name six ‘Women of Distinction.’ PAGE 8 PLATTSBURGH

By Jeremiah S. Papineau BEEKMANTOWN — The Beekmantown Central School District Community Coalition has released the full text of its initial appeal in the hopes words will stir more members of the community to speak out against what has become a controversial decision for the school district. Simona Sharoni — the mother of a student in the school district and spokesperson on behalf of the community coalition — recently released to the media the full text of the appeal filed with the state Education Department, signed by Dr. David J. Anderson, Robert G. Collier, and John P. Bradley. The text of the appeal contains the main argument of the coalition, that the positions of former Beekmantown High School principal CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

The verdict is in on the ‘Name that 1812 Beer.’

PLATTSBURGH — Watching the sky drizzle, soldiers grumbled that their black powder charges couldn’t be trusted in such watery weather. They stood shoulder-to-shoulder a few minutes later, watching the enemy approach. The order was shouted to ready rifles for the opening salvo.

As the rain fell, another order was shouted, “Fire!” Click. Click. Click. The rifles weren’t firing. Just as the soldiers had feared, the black powder rounds were failing. BOOM! The last rifle in line roared fire at the enemy line. “The cannon!” shouted one of the enemies. “Wait for the cannon to CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

‘Plucky Rooster’ name of new 1812 beer PLATTSBURGH — The results are in. The Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau and Legend’s Bistro have announced the winning name from their “Name that 1812 Beer” contest. The new 1812 ale has been named “Plucky Rooster Ale,” submitted by five different people Russell Jones, Howard Lowe, Bill Duffany, and Ed and April Quackenbush, all of Plattsburgh. The contest had more than 250 name entries. The name was chosen for its relevance to the Battle of Plattsburgh and the legend that surrounds the rooster on Commander Thomas Macdonough’s ship. Kristy Kennedy, group marketing specialist with the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau, said each of the entries was “very creative and really showed how passionate people are about our local history.” “We saw names that reflected Macdonough and his crew, ship names and some referenced the type of beer itself,” said Kennedy, adding she learned “a lot about the history through the names submitted.” “Ultimately, Plucky Rooster was chosen, because it was a unique story to the Battle of Platts-

Garth Frechette and former Cumberland Head Elementary School principal Diane Fox were swapped and the “reassignment had not been discussed at any properly convened meeting of the [board of education].” The appeal called on the state Education Department to take immediate action in mediating a discussion between the school board and the community, calling the board’s decision “highly unusual and contrary to school board policy.” Sharoni said she felt it was important the public read what the coalition was asking of the board, which summarily was an explanation for the board’s decision. She added the coalition filed the appeal to plead with board of education to “consult with experts in the field about the recent decisions they made and their ramifications.”

burgh and we knew visitors would find it to be a very memorable story.” The “Legend of the Plucky Rooster,” as it has been dubbed, states that on the morning of Sept. 11, 1814, the British fleet sailed around Cumberland Head and into the bay where Macdonough’s fleet was waiting. As the English squadron stood bravely, Macdonough knelt for a moment with his officers on the quarter-deck in perfect silence, the men were waiting for the opening fight. The American ship spoke first with its cannons but to no effect, the shot fell short. Then, the British ship fired against the American ship its shot also fell short, except for one that struck the coop containing a gamecock that happened to be aboard. Instead of being frightened at his sudden release, the rooster jumped up on a gun-slide, clapped his wings and crowed. The men laughed and cheered; immediately afterward Macdonough himself fired the first shot. The 24-pound ball struck the British ship and ranged the length of her deck, killing and wounding several men. All the American long guns now opened and were replied

“We were concerned that the board made these questionable decisions and is now unwilling to take responsibility for the public outcry and loss of confidence in them,” said Sharoni. “We filed the appeal in hope that the commissioner will appoint an outside mediator to help de-escalate the present tension between the board and the community.” The decision to swap Frechette’s and Fox’s positions was made at the July 5 meeting of the board of education, with board members Cathy Buckley, Leonard King, Stanley Kourofsky, Richard Lavigne, Carole Race and Pauline Stone voting for the move. Board president Steve Trombley and board members Karen Armstrong and Ed Marin voted against the swap. The board was further served a petition at a July 26 meeting containing 185 signatures of district residents against reassigning Frechette and Fox. When reached for comment, board of education president Steve Trombley said there has been no discussion among board members to reverse the principal swap.

The beer itself

Plucky Rooster Ale was developed by Legend' s Bistro head brewmaster, Jason Stoyanoff, who created the recipe by researching types of beers brewed by George W ashington and Thomas Jefferson in the late 18th and early 19th century. Stoyanoff e xplained b rewers d id n ot o nly u se b arley, w hich makes up the majority of beer recipes today , but other sugar sources such as wheat, rye and molasses. Filtration was nonexistent at the time, so this brew is also unfiltered. “Plucky Rooster Ale is a contemporary nod to brews made 200 years ago by our forefathers,” said Stoyanoff, who used American hops, English rye, Canadian barley and molasses to create his burly pale ale with sweet toffee notes and a great hop aroma, flavor and balance. “Having Plucky Rooster Ale is a fantastic way to get visitors excited about our rich history and a nice way to introduce visitors to the War of 1812 Bicentennial that we will be commemorating from 2012-2014,” said Kennedy. The beer will now be available at Legend's Bistro.

to by the British galleys. The crew took the rooster ’s fighting spirit as a sign of good fortune and they were right. Macdonough’s crew won the battle and put an end to the war. Today, the U.S. Navy continues to have the rooster as a mascot on the U.S.S. Saratoga aircraft carrier.

“It is clear to us now that the board is unwilling to revisiting the swap. It is a bad decision and we will have to live with,” said Sharoni. “What we need to ensure is that future decisions will be consistent with board policy and that a rationale for them will be shared with the community.” Sharoni added the coalition plans to be in attendance at the next meeting of the board of education, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 12, in the high school library. The meeting will begin at 6:15 p.m. “The community mobilized to voice its disagreement with the principles swap. We need to keep people inform and involved,” said Sharoni. “This is one key way to continue to hold the board accountable and to build the capacity, skills, and confidence of people that would be willing to run for board positions in the next elections.” (Editor’s Note: The full text of the coalition’s appeal may be found on our website,

fire, that’s the signal to start.” The cannon was actually a 1/3 size carronade set up by reenactor Craig Russell. Russell represented the Americans in a mock battle that placed the British at a disadvantage of two to one. Tom Pray, a redcoat, offered an explanation, “It's hard to round up that many guys, especially when it's raining.” This preview of the annual Battle of Plattsburgh celebration dedicated the Invasion Trail that the British followed in the build-up to the battle and the placement of an interpretive display at the corner of Halsey Court and Boynton Avenue. Town of Plattsburgh Supervisor Bernie Bassett attended the event, and said that Plattsburgh's rich history should be as celebrated as other sites important to American history. The town is working on a destination master plan to encourage tourism and increase local awareness of important historical spots. “There's so much history that's taken place through the ages that is simply lost,” said Bassett. Many battles took place in the town, said Bassett. The celebration that the city puts on is great, but once there weren't political distinctions dividing the Town and City. The entire area was part of the battleground, and local history should be promoted more aggressively, he said. Town Historian Jerry Bates said the battle site is part of everybody's history here. It's good to know what came before so you can understand your place in time, he said. The Invasion Trail marks points of interest on the path the British marched. It's not such an easy hike for most, though. “You'd have to be very industrious to walk it,” said Bates. The Invasion Trail stretches from Champlain to the Kent Delord House in Plattsburgh. Also displayed at the ceremony was a painting by John Purdy, made to commemorate the occasion, will be displayed at the war of 1812 museum on the former Air Force base, behind the jets displayed near the Route 9 roundabout. The Battle of Plattsburgh weekend returns Sept. 9 to 11, with events around the city. Learn more at

Burgh Editorial

It’s September, and it’s nuts


et the craziness begin. With September comes the cool touch of morning fog, the sound of Canada Geese, the sight of fall foliage, and the taste of newly harvested apples. What’s most striking, however, is the mind-scrambling list of things to do. It’s like someone has thrown 100 balls in the air for each person to catch. School children were enjoying their last free weeks of summer in mid-August when stores began putting Halloween candy and costumes in the aisles. Against our will, retailers have placed us on a conveyor belt on the fast track to Christmas, which starts a new run of holidays that won’t end until next summer. So much for the school year. As Tropical Storm Irene slammed the door on our summer of fun, she turned our world upside down. For motorists, detours are an inconvenience, but for some residents, the damage to their homes and businesses was life-altering. Many had no flood insurance. Many are still trying to clean up and rebuild. Many are hurrying before the onset of winter. With or without the governor ’s “Labor for Your Neighbor” program, neighbors would have helped each other out, rebuilding and raising money for recovery. And although we take exception to the volunteers’ white T-shirts that said, “Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Labor for Your Neighbor Hurricane Clean-Up Team,” because it seems a little self-promotional, we think it was a great idea to mobilize volunteers in hard-hit communities and put volunteerism up on a pedestal where it belongs. We give the governor points for building a “team” and getting things done. He even got a number of administration officials to volunteer on Labor Day weekend in Irenesuffering communities throughout the state. With a slick PR campaign surrounding his every move, perhaps a run for the White House is in Mr. Cuomo’s future come 2016. When visiting Keene on Labor Day, the governor dressed the part with blue jeans and work boots. Although his white governor ’s shirt got soaked with rain, it did not get dirty, despite Cuomo’s having carried a single bucket of mud from one end of a yard to the other, just so we could snap a picture

of New York’s chief “at work.” We commend one newspaper columnist, a Keene Valley resident, for refusing to take Cuomo’s picture during the bucket shot. Give him credit. Andrew Cuomo gets things done. From an on-time state budget to a same-sex marriage law, rebuilding roads and bridges after the spring floods, and rebuilding Route 73 from Keene Valley to the Northway after Tropical Storm Irene, people jump when the governor says “jump.” Experts told Cuomo it would take several months to open Route 73. But did he listen? No. “I believe we can get one lane open in 10 days,” Cuomo said at the Keene firehouse Sept. 5. “After 10 days, I told the team in Albany, ‘Either wheels are going to roll or heads are going to roll.’” Now that’s the kind of leadership we need. And let’s not forget the local officials caught up in the aftermath of Irene. We’ve seen tremendous leadership from people like Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas and their respective town board members and employees. We’ve seen them in action, and we admire their commitment to helping their communities. The real story on Labor Day weekend was the community spirit of helping those in need. We can’t thank the volunteers enough for raking, and cleaning and shoveling. Some were residents and others were visiting Essex County from all over the state and as far away as California. While there’s been a lot of progress in the past two weeks, there is much more that needs to be done in this recovery effort. Lives of many Adirondackers will never be the same after the flooding this year. They’re our neighbors and our friends. Please continue to help make someone’s life a little less hectic this fall.

Thankful to Horace Nye

Thanks for supporting

My husband has been a resident at Horace Nye for the past year, and I am impressed with the quality of care he is receiving under the present system, i.e. not for profit. The staff are always friendly, compassionate and caring, doing all in their power to provide the residents with activities and excursions, as well as attending to their physical and nutritional needs. Now, due to the expenses incurred and the lack of governmental support in providing sufficient tax revenue to help keep up the facility, the county is considering selling it. To quote the Rev. Chilton Mac Pheeters, as expressed in a recent article: “We have a social contract to love our neighbor.” Like it or not, we all get sick and old, and maintaining quality nursing homes should be a priority. I, for one, resent seeing a huge amount of my tax dollars paid out as school tax, a system my children graduated from decades ago. I feel that when one reaches 65 that he should have the option of redirecting this tax to the support of elder care and nursing homes rather than helping buy new astro turf for the football/soccer field or whatever else the school budget dictates. “Been there; done that.” Now it is time to support Horace Nye. Mary Benson Keeseville

I am president of the Northern New York Chapter of the Guardians of the Ribbon. We recently held a fundraiser to raise funds to get our pink fire truck repaired. The truck is used to raise awareness of women and children battling cancer in our area. I would like to thank all the business that donated items, either food items for the dinner or items for the raffle. It was all appreciated very much. Also, a big thank you to the Beekmantown Fire Department for letting us host the benefit at their station. To all the volunteers that showed up to help all day, your efforts were greatly appreciated. And last but not least, thanks to the public that supported the benefit. Through your generous support and donations, we are well on our way to getting the truck repaired and back on the road spreading hope and support for women and children battling cancer.

Planting fall butterfly flowers


f I were to ask you what a butterfly garden looked like, what would you visualize? If you are like most people, you would describe a garden in full bloom during June, July and August. But, there are many butterfly flowers for the fall as well. And, if you want to provide ideal butterfly habitat, fall flowers are important for butterflies because they need energy for their long migration to their winter grounds. Many different species of butterflies migrate in the fall so that they can spend their winter in a warmer climate. Perhaps the most famous of these is the monarch butterfly, which travels thousands of miles to winter in Mexico or California. There are a wide variety of fall flowers that attract butterflies. Many of the annuals will bloom until the first hard frost, which in Plattsburgh occurs around the 20th of September. Some butterfly attracting annuals include cosmos, zinnias, french marigolds, and sunflowers. Many fall blooming perennials will continue to bloom through light frosts. These include asters, particularly the New England aster, goldenrod, and Joe-Pye weed. Besides making sure that your butterfly garden has fall blooming flowers, care should also be taken during your fall

If your garden has good butterfly habitat throughout the spring and summer — a variety of flowers and some shallow puddles you most likely have larvae or chrysalises in some of the places your can’t see. Unless you have fungal diseases you are trying to clean up, resist the urge to clean up the garden. This could disrupt or even kill the next generation of butterflies that will grace your garden next year. You can do the clean up in the spring, once the larvae have come out of hibernation. Another thing you might want to do in addition to planting fall butterfly flowers is leaving some apples on the ground in your garden. Rotting apples provide minerals and amino acids that some butterflies can use. Remember, also, that it’s a good idea to keep your butterfly garden chemical free, as butterflies are particularly sensitive to chemicals.

Making it a run to remember I would like to thank the runners and walkers that came out on Aug. 20 to participate in the 2nd-annual Run to Remember Doug Hoffman. The fun run raised $500 for the Alzheimer's Disease Assistance Center. It was a beautiful morning spent supporting a critical cause. I would also like to thank our sponsors, CSEA Local 884 Union, Liquor and Wine Warehouse, Starbucks, Price Chopper, Kinney, Hannaford, Smooth Moves, Rowell Insuring, Viking Ski Shop, L&M Grocery, Delish and Stewart's Shops. I appreciate you helping us honor my Dad's memory by doing what we can to help others with Alzheimer's and their families. Look for the run again next year. Thank you for your support.

What is in your child’s lunchbox?


hen it comes to the question of what’s in your child’s lunchbox, I know a lot of parents first reaction is, “I don’t have time to make lunch for my kids.” Well, that is just a poor excuse. Nobody “has” time. You have to “make” time. Please, for the health and well-being of your child, consider the following ideas. Over the next month or so, I am putting the focus of my articles on healthy school lunches for kids. As parents, naturally we want only the best for our children. Making them a healthy and nourishing lunch is something that we have control over. I am big on the idea of not forcing people or my children to eat a certain way but by leading by example, and often explaining the benefit of eating this over that. So parents, these lunches will work for you, too. The first thing you need to do is purchase a good lunch box, ice packs, and containers that you may need for food storage. I choose to use reusable containers instead of plastic bags to lessen my impact on the environment. I have also purchased a thermos to pack hot lunches for when the weather gets cooler. You’ll also want to consider a drink container. Make sure your food and drink containers are non-toxic and BPA free. Next you need to make a menu. I’ve spent the summer experimenting with different new and healthy meals that would work for school

lunch. I’ve created a small menu of about six meal options so far that I plan on rotating throughout the week. I am making a calendar just like they hand out at school with the menu for the month. That way I am prepared. I know exactly what to buy and exactly what I will be making so I don’t have to think about it when we are pressed for time in the morning or tired the evening before. I have also prepared a list of snack ideas that I will have ready to go as well. Now that you have your menu, go shopping and stock up with the ingredients that you need to pack your child’s lunch. Don’t forget to pack healthy sides like fresh fruit, cut up vegetables, and whole grain crackers. I think it is very important to give kids options. Just like you, they just may not be in the mood for a certain food on a certain day. Sometimes my kids will devour their lunches, other days they just pick at the finger foods. So make sure they have healthy options to choose from that way you can rest assured that they are at least eating something nourishing. Stay tuned, for in the following weeks I will be including healthy meal and snack ideas.

Girl Scouts to honor six local ‘Women of Distinction’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau


PLATTSBURGH — The dedication they have to their communities has not gone unnoticed for one group of local women. Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York will recognize six local women at the organization’s annual Women of Distinction dinner Thursday, Sept. 22, at the West Side Ballroom. Each year, a committee reviews nominations of outstanding women from Clinton, Franklin, Essex, northern Hamilton and eastern St. Lawrence Counties who are considered role models for young women and who have made a difference in their communities. Vicki A. Marking heads the committee, in what she calls “one of the toughest jobs to do.” “We have a lot of fantastic people in our local communities,” said Marking. “So, choosing only six is the hardest part.” However, the committee once again whittled down the list of nominations to reveal its most recent honorees: Gail Brill, Adirondack Green Circle; Bonnie Black, Behavioral Health Services North; Judy Feigenbaum, North Country Home Services; Dr. Karen Firda, Palmer Veterinary Clinic; Jeanie Roberts, North Country Chapter of American Red Cross; and Gabrielle Palmer, National Alliance for Mental Illness of Champlain Valley. What impresses Marking most is how each honoree comes from a different sector of the community or has a commitment to a different cause in the region. “I’m impressed this year with how different each one of them is,” Marking said of the honorees. “Each one of them has a passion for something in particular ... But, what’s the same about them and what makes them stand out is their level of passion and their level of commitment for what they do.”

What also is common among each honoree, said Marking, is their selfless dedication to making the community a better place. “I don’t think any of these ladies are doing what they do because they’re looking to get recognized for it,” said Marking. That doesn’t mean their efforts should go unnoticed, however, said Marking. “It’s very important we’re recognizing these ladies and pointing out to the young ladies coming up through the ranks of Girl Scouting and through the general community that these are role models.” The six honorees will be presented their awards during the Sept. 22 dinner, which will start with a reception and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and a program at 7 p.m. Emcee for the evening will be Keela Dates, executive director of Reason2Smile Inc., a nonprofit organization which supports Jambo Jipya School, a school and orphanage in Kenya. Those interested in attending the dinner may contact Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York at 489-8110. Dinner tickets are $50 each or $500 for a table of 10. Reservations are due by Friday, Sept. 16. The dinner is sponsored by Casella Waste Management, Champlain National Bank, NBT Bank and Wyeth.

Dupree wins Modified 50; Roy crowned champion Foley. Positions 6-10 went to Aaron Bartemy, Roy, Vince Quenneville, Adam Bartemy and Richard Tisseur. Dupree’s win was his fourth of the season. He was driving a new car which he hopes to run at the front with later in the month at Syracuse. Dupree finished third in the final 2011 standings - one spot behind Foley. Quenneville moved one spot past Andy Heywood to finish the regular season fourth in the standings. “I felt I was in a good place in the race,” Roy said. “I was trying to save the car, save the tires, and check on the 34 car (Foley). This is a very, very good race track. I am very happy to be the champion here. The night I flew by helicopter after a CASCAR race to get here and we won, my team said maybe we can win the championship.” Vernold’s second-place effort was his best finish of the year. Dupree, Vernold and Matt Woodruff won the Modified heats. The J&S Steel Sportsman went 50 laps as eight teams from Autodrome St-Eustache joined in. The Quebec teams ran a wider tire and several Airborne drivers did the same, foregoing a chance to earn regular season championship points. That was a winning strategy for Plattsburgh’s Bucko Branham, who opened up a sizeable lead in the middle

of the race and then held off all comers during several late race restarts. The top Airborne regular across the line on Airborne legal tires was Shawn Duquette, followed by Robin Wood, who clinched his second straight Sportsman title. Maxime Pelletier of Mascouche, Que., placed second. Jocelyn Gagnon of Ste-Annedes-Plaines was third, two car-lengths ahead of Brandon Atkins of Ausable Forks, who also ran the wider tire. Josh LeClaire of Plattsburgh won the NAPA Mini Modified feature in the Mt. Valley Integrated Systems No. 7. Kris Clark, who pressed LeClaire much of the way, Speedy Bresette, Matt Brousseau and Erick Sayles completed the top five. Lonnie Rivers of Cadyville took the Renegade checkers after holding off Robbie Favreau

and Robert Gordon. Rookie Jason McClatchie was 4th. Josh Terry was 5th. Johnmichael Bresette of Keeseville won the Busch Bomber feature to remain in contention for the division crown, which will be decided this Saturday, Sept. 10. Modifieds: 1. Patrick Dupree, 2.

Plattsburgh City Beach closed for season Attendance, revenue up for 2011


SOUTH PLATTSBURGH — Patrick Dupree rebounded from a hard crash last week and drove the Saranac Country Store No. 24 to his fourth win in the Mike Watts Memorial 50 for DIRTcar Modifieds Saturday at Airborne Speedway. Runner-up Kris Vernold, Craig Reyell and George Foley went wheel to wheel for second for the final 15 laps. Several car-lengths back, at speed, but taking no chances, Martin Roy of Napierville, Que., brought the Gamache Trucking No. 90 home in seventh place to secure the 2011 Ernie’s Discount Tools Modified championship. Roy, the 2009 champion, is the first Canadian racer ever to win two Airborne lead division championships. Foley, Roy’s only threat in the last point race of the season, was nearly taken out on the fourth lap when Dan Brown spun around in front of him as he entered the third turn, but Foley swerved in time. When the green came back out, Vernold was the leader with Dupree fifth, Roy sixth and Foley seventh. Dupree got to Vernold on lap 11 and passed him for the lead on lap 17. Vernold and Reyell diced for second the rest of the way. Foley joined in for the final 10 laps, but came up a few feet shy of third. Pierre Berthiaume finished 5th, a car-length behind

PLATTSBURGH — As a result of the heavy rains from Tropical Storm Irene, the Plattsburgh City Beach closed early for the season last week. Its original closing date was slated for Labor Day, Sept. 5. Lake Champlain rose two feet in less than 24 hours Aug. 29, depositing seaweed and debris on the beach, said superintendent for recreation Steve Peters. In addition, with confirmatory water test results unavailable until after Sept. 5, combined with last weekend’s questionable forecast, city officials decided to close the beach for the season. “We had an outstanding summer at the City Beach this year and we are really disappointed that we couldn’t finish out the last few days,” said Peters. “Crews from both Public Works and the Recreation department worked feverishly this spring to clear debris from the lake flooding. Their efforts allowed us to be the only beach open in the area for a while. Combined with unseasonably warm temperatures for most of the summer, our numbers increased significantly which demonstrates that our beach has the potential to be the premier beach on the entire lake.” While the City Beach opened eight days later than scheduled due to the spring flooding and closed seven days early due to Irene, 2011 City Beach usage had increased significantly over last year. Total number of visitors exceeded 31,200 compared with 19,355 in 2010 and 14,829 in 2009. Fifty-two percent of City Beach visitors in 2011 were City of Plattsburgh and Town of Plattsburgh residents, while more than 40 percent were Canadians. Revenue exceeded $31,000 compared to $22,790 in 2010 and $21,994 in 2009.

DressCode BaseMent helping local charities By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH — Julie Woodley is working to help local charities through her new business. Woodley has been setting aside a percentage of proceeds from her sales at DressCode BaseMent — which opened in May — and giving them to various causes like the food shelf program operated by the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties. Woodley said she decided to first focus on the food shelf, hoping to help the program through the winter months. “The food shelf has had funding cut and they need help to stay stocked,” said Woodley. Feeding the community is a basic need that Woodley, who herself is a mother, feels needs to be met. “Children should never in our country, state, county or city ever, ever go hungry,” she said. “Our children need to be fed.” Though Woodley’s other business, Dress-

Code, has been operating successfully on the corner of Bridge Street and City Hall Place, Woodley wanted to do even more for those wanting to spend less and help charitable causes at the same time. “Our intent when we opened was to provide clothing as a very low cost, and donate a proceeds of the profits to local charities,” said Woodley. “We intended to be open every day, but with the success of the bag sales, we have decided to only have bag sales.” The bag sales to which Woodley referred consist of selling bags of clothing at discounted prices the second and fourth weekend of every month. As for the business itself, Woodley said things have been going well and, “with a few adjustments, I think it is going to get even better.” DressCode Basement, located at 39 ½ Bridge St., is open the second and fourth week of each month from 12 to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call Woodley at 825-2633.

Rockeater Adventure Race next Saturday PLATTSBURGH — The City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department will host the “Rockeater Adventure Race” next Saturday, Sept. 17. The recreation department and 99.9 The Buzz are hosting the new event at Plattsburgh City Beach that will consist of a five-kilometer race, starting at the main swimming area at the beach, with waves of 100 runners taking off every 30 minutes. The course will wind through the Heritage Trail and Scomotion Creek areas before returning back to the beach by way of the Crete Memorial Civic Center. The race will include obstacles like a mud pit, tunnel crawl, scramble net, water wading and even fire jumping. Registration for the race closed Sept. 1, though spectators

“The Burgh” is now in more homes than ever... Plattsburgh

are encouraged to turn out to witness the event, which will start with a first wave of runners at 2 p.m. The name for the Rockeater Road Race derived from the slang terminology made famous by a Saturday Night Live skit last year in which actor Fred Armisen portrayed then Gov. David A. Paterson, referring to North Country people as “rockeaters.” Though defines the term as someone “who is missing teeth” and is synonymous with “trailer trash,” recreation superintendent Steve Peters has said he wants to utilize the race as a way to give the term a fun, new meaning. “No one’s really owned that term, and we thought nam-

ing this race the Rockeater Adventure Race would be a good way to keep it from being so derogatory,” Peters said in a June interview.

Plattsburgh International receives expansion funding PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh International Airport is set to receive $759,426 in U.S. Department of Transportation funds to support long-term improvements planned for the airport's terminal building. According to a press release from the North Country Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand made the announcement last month.

"Plattsburgh International is a cornerstone of the North Country economy, and these funds will only help cement that status," said Schumer. "This funding will help us take the next step towards an expanded terminal and improved air service for passengers." "This is an important investment for Plattsburgh International," said Gillibrand said. "These federal dollars will help support long-term infrastructure

upgrades to improve the airport and provide better service for travelers." The funding for Plattsburgh International Airport will initiate an assessment to evaluate the environmental impacts of the full terminal build-out planned to take place over the next 30 years as part of their effort to improve capacity in the airport's terminal building.

gram, “We lost five good athletes to graduation last season,” Trudeau said. “That was nearly half our team. Because we have a small varsity squad, we need to stay healthy and injury free or we could be in danger. We also are working on strengthening our large modified group so that we can begin rebuilding for seasons to come.” Trudeau said that in the league, it can be a competitive year. “I think the talent in the section is well divided between the three schools so it will be a very competitive season,” she said. Trudeau is assisted by Brittany Edwards.

Girls cross country team ready for running PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh High girls varsity cross country team will be a familiar one to fans, with seven of 10 returning to the 2011 squad. “We need to have a complete and healthy team,” head coach Corey Mousseau said. “Our smaller numbers mean each athletes needs to stand up and accept the challenge more so than in previous seasons.” Mousseau said that the team will also be helped by addition. “Emma Deshaies is a newcomer coming over from Soccer,” Mousseau said. “She is fresh off of a very strong Track season, and we expect her to compete amongst the best in our section. Junior captain Maddie O’Connell has had an excellent pre-season and should have a much stronger season than her first year last season.” Mousseau said that the team should be able to compete in the top half of their league in 2011, and that it will be a team effort throughout the campaign. “I will deem this season a success if we can field a complete team every meet and if each individual sets their own personal records and meets them week after week,” he said.

Boys soccer team hopes to stay on top PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh High varsity boys soccer team will have plenty of experience on the pitch as they begin the 2011 season. “My starting 11 are seniors,” head coach Chris LaRose said. “Very good team speed and this is one of the tallest teams I have fielded. Of a roster of 21, eight athletes stand 6'2" or taller. We have solid passers as well with a good knowledge of the game.” The Hornets will look to stay at the top of the sectional mountain, coming off a 15-1-1 season in 2010. “With a new league created as a result of blending the CVAC and MVAC, our first goal is to remain competitive in our own division first and move on from there with nonleague crossover games as we prepare for sectional play later on in the season,” LaRose said. “Being on the same page tactically from the keeper out to the forwards and minimizing the mental mistakes is key” LaRose said that he expects big years from several players, including senior midfielder Ethan Votraw, senior midfielder Rob Fout, senior forward David Carpenter and 6'5" senior keeper Chris Roenbeck. “Over the past six seasons, our program has been fortunate enough to be at or near the top in league play,” LaRose

PERU —The Peru varsity football team will return several players from the 2010 roster who all saw time on the squad last season. “A great deal of our players received playing time last year, so that varsity experience should translate to a better understanding of our offense, defense, and special teams,” head coach Nick Damiani said. “We have a good mix of seniors, juniors, and sophomores, but they need to work at coming together as a team. We also need to get our group of offensive linemen to all operate in sync with each other.” Taylor Rock will return as quarterback for the Indians this season, along with Alex Cederstrom, Shawn Hendrix, Mike Holdridge and Erik Provost. “They are all returning as seniors and Mike and Alex are both three year varsity players,” Damiani said. Damiani said that he hopes that the team will be able to use depth to help get through the Northern Football Conference season. “Our season will be defined by our ability to utilize every player on our roster,” he said. “We need everyone to contribute on offense, defense, and special teams. We need our senior group to lead our younger guys, and we need our inexperienced group to step up and make the transition from JV to Varsity.” In terms of Class B football, Damiani said that it is a wide open race. “I feel our team will be very competitive within the league,” he said. “Class B is full of talented teams this year. It seems that everyone is returning a large number of players, so everyone has a shot to win the title.” Damiani is assisted by Ryon O'Connell, Jeff Way and Jason Remillard.

“This is going to be an interesting year in soccer with the newly formed Divisions,” Harrigan said. “We plan on being one of the top three teams in the league if not the top team. We are the returning Class B champions and regional champion.”

BEEKMANTOWN — The defending Section VII and regional champion Eagles volleyball team is back with strong senior leadership and an eye on repeating. Each of my players can play more than one position,” head coach Shana Fessette-Hileman said. “They have trained hard to learn new positions and will play any position that will benefit the team.” Fessette-Hileman said that the other team strengths are competitiveness in practices and the weight room, talented underclassmen, height and jumping abilities in our hitters and aggressive team defense. “Everyday the girls arrive to practice or lifting sessions ready to perform,” Fessette-Hileman said. Fessette-Hileman said that the core of her team is found in senior leadership from Kiana Archer, Chelsey Besaw and Molly Sorrell. The team will focus on several things in the upcoming season, including developing a quick attack offense and winning the mental aspect of each game. “It is too early in the season to see who will be dominate players on the BCS squad,” Fessette-Hileman said. “Everyday improvements are made and every game may have a new line-up.” Fessette-Hileman said that the key throughout the season will be to remain focused on each match as it is played. “Our presence will be felt more and more through out the season as they begin to gel as a team,” she said. “We will take one game at a time and see how the chips fall. Every game in our schedule is important; we will take one step at a time to achieve our goal.” In practice, Fessette-Hileman said that the goal is to work hard and learn both the game of volleyball and life lessons. “As the coach I would like these young ladies to see the importance of athletics and how it applies to everyday life,” she said. “The athletic, time management and organizational skills taught in our program will not only carry into games but in the classroom as well. I emphasize that you do not need to be perfect but to give 110% in everything you do and success will come.” Fessette-Hileman is assisted by JV Coach Maureen Fragassi and Anne Marie Baker.

BEEKMANTOWN — The Eagles boys and girls cross country teams will look for solid performances throughout their lineup as they compete in the CVAC in 2011. “Maile Sapp was one of the top individual runners in league last year,” head coach Andy Hastings said. “Should challenge for league individual champion. Tori Barrett and Ali Corneau had solid freshman years and will round out a solid top three. Our key to success will be developing the new runners to fill in the top 5.’ Hastings said that for the boys team, senior Matt Simpson and sophomore Colin Quackenbush are returning all stars who will lead the boys. “A solid group of sophomores including Jordan West, Brandon Couture, and John Graziane should make the Eagles a contender this season,” he said. “ They keys to our success will be staying focused and avoiding injuries.”

Peru gymnasts ready for season PERU — The Peru varsity gymnastics team has a mix of new coaches and new routines to go with a solid core of athletes that provide depth to the program under head coach Krista Brown and assistants Brett LeClair and Rachelle Roberts. “We need to have solid performances in competition while improving form and technique to raise scores,” Brown said. Brown said that Molly Lawliss, Lexi Trombley and Alexandra Brown will be three athletes that will be asked to lead the team this season. “Our goals are working as a team unit, increasing difficulty levels as season progresses and winning more than two meets,” Brown said, adding that they hope to be able to challenge for the top of the conference.

Indians swimmers prepare for competitive 2011 season Boys soccer team seeks unity PERU — The Peru girls varsity swimming team is worki n g h a rd t o b e re a d y f o r t h e start of the 2011 season. “We have a great group of girls on our team this year,” head coach Peter Wheatley. “They are really coming together as a team, working hard and encouraging each other.” Wheatley said that the he will

be looking for new contributors to fill in for some key losses after the 2010 season. “We have a lot of blank spots in our lineup from last year, and we have a lot of new girls to fill those places,” Wheatley said. “It’s up to our young girls to step up and fill in those places. A lot of the responsibility will fall on our young girls’ shoulders and I

Veteran volleyball squad set PERU — The Peru varsity volleyball team has a wealth of experience entering the 2011 season. “I have seven seniors this year and their court experience has helped build their confidence as player and leaders,” head coach Kaylen Fessette said. “The seniors have stepped up their game becoming role models for our first year players. This year with such a large team we have many options to run offensively. This opens up many doors and has helped improve our offensive game.” Fessette said that has been pleased with the role that has been taken on by Abby Higgins. “Abby is our middle blocker with three years of varsity experience,” Fessette

said. “Her leadership and work ethic will carry her far throughout this season. She has developed into a role model to our first year players.” Fessette said that she is looking to the senior players and experienced members of the team to help mold the younger players and help the team as a whole compete in the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference. “I believe our team will play a role in the conference race,” she said. “This season with such an experienced senior group should help us be a competitive team in our conference. This year any team has the potential to be one of the top teams. This season will be very interesting having many teams being competitive.”

am looking forward to see which girls will take advantage of that opportunity and step up in our lineup.” Wheatley said that the division is very strong in 2011, and that there will be a lot of competition between the schools but that he wished them the best in the upcoming campaign.

Hornets win season opener v. Vikings By Keith Lobdell

PLATTSBURGH — To further prove that stats don’t always tell the story, there is the case of the Moriah Vikings against the Plattsburgh Hornets. In the season opener between the two football teams Sept. 2, the Vikings had nine first downs compared to none for the Hornets. The Vikings had more yards from scrimmage and controlled the ball for 25 more plays and 8:50 clock time. However, a fumbled punt return and an interception, both picked up by Nate Harrington, led to a pair of touchdowns that gave the Hornets a 12-0 win. “We were expecting a very physical ball game,” PHS head coach Jerry Defayette said after the game. “They are a very tough team and very disciplined.” Defayette said that the momentum began earl for the Hornets. “The fumble recovery was a big play, but I think we slowly began to turn the momentum early in the game when we proved to ourselves that we could hang in there.” The closest that the Vikings got to scoring was on their very first drive of the game, after a long punt return and a first down put the team on the Hornets’ 13 yard line. The Plattsburgh defense responded with a pair of tackles-for-loss on second and third down, forcing a punt after a 21yard sack. On its opening drive of the second half, the Hornets found themselves looking at a three-andout series, punting to the Vikings. However, when the Viking return man fumbled the catch, Harrington was on top of the ball, putting his team on the Vikings 28 yard line. Two plays later, James Stiger ran off tackle for 22 yards and the opening score of the game. “I spun to break the arm tackle and once I got past the first level, I was able to score,” Stiger said. On the ensuing drive, Harrington picked up his second interception of the night, returning the ball to the Vikings 25, where Stiger again got the call, this time running off a option sweep to give the Hornets a 14-0 lead. “I only had one touchdown all season last year,” Stiger said. “This is a great feeling. It makes you want to work even harder to be 2-0.” Stiger finished with 44 yards rushing, while Harrington had 14 receiving yards to go with his three turnovers. “it felt fantastic to see James running for the endzone,” Harrington said about the two scoring plays that were set up by him. “Both times, I was thinking that I need to get the ball and put us in a position to score.”
