Rockeater race has universal appeal




This Week



Man returns from Democratic Convention.

By Stephen Bartlett


PLATTSBURGH — I drove down Rt. 9, windows down, System of a Down turned up loud, and wondered what to expect from Plattsburgh’s Rockeater Adventure Race, which I had missed the year before. Does dental insurance cover such damage? Do champion Rockeaters sacrifice sparkling smiles? And what about intestinal and bowel complications? That’s when I spotted three men in diapers running with pacifiers in their mouths in the direction of Plattsburgh City Beach.

911 commemoration inspires call for mercy, compassion By Stephen Bartlett

Local teachers attend summer school in Colorado. PLATTSBURGH — The terror on America’s doorstep 11 years ago dismayed the nation. Everyone desires to see the injustice undone, but that cannot happen, and today we must find our way toward compassion and wisdom, said Plattsburgh State historian Dr. Douglas Skopp, speaking at the university’s annual 911 commemoration. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, 19 Islamist militants hijacked four passenger jets to complete four coordinated suicide attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. They smashed two planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, into the World Trade Center. The North and South towers collapsed within two hours. The hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. The fourth jet was heading toward the United States Capital building when passengers attempted to take control of CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

Plattsburgh man represents at Democratic National Convention

Michael Cashman, speaking at Plattsburgh State about his experience at the Democratic National Convention.

speaking to each individual in their living room, meeting America where it is today and stressing that no president could make a quick recovery in four years alone. Cashman feels many people have lost perspective, but he is hopeful and confident

America is in a better place than four years ago and encouraged, excited and hopeful about the next chapter. “I learned that we as a nation are able to come together and unite when we put our hearts and minds into it.”

PLATTSBURGH — Our freedoms, values and liberty are guaranteed for as long as each citizen remains vigilant in ensuring it, said Michael Cashman, a higher education professional at Plattsburgh State, motivational speaker and consultant. Political apathy, a common psychosis of those who believe they are not affected or resigned to victimhood, inspired Cashman to step up his quest to spread liberty. Part of that journey recently took him to Charlotte, NC, where he represented the 21st New York Congressional District at the Democratic National Convention. A total of 384 delegates comprised the delegation from New York, the second largest after California. Cashman was one of seven who represented the 21st congressional district. There he met individuals from across the country and all walks of life, rubbing elbows with political heavy weights such as James Carville and watching Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama speak. Cashman, a Massachusetts native who had lived in Plattsburgh 13 years, said the idea of public service pushed him toward politics. At Plattsburgh State he served as Student Association president, a role he saw as an


advocate, going on to volunteer and work on political campaigns, including for Hillary Clinton, Obama, and Congressman Bill Owens. “I knew I wanted to be an active citizen.” Cashman embraced his role at the Democratic National Convention, an opportunity to meet with like-minded people and listen to various perspectives while sharing his own views. For Cashman, this election is about representation, and he feels Obama, Owens and a democratic congress will represent the voice, needs and integrity of the North Country. By attending the convention, he was able to make it clear that the North Country is a vital and vibrant contributor to state and national dialogue. “When I cast my vote for the president, I will be doing so on behalf of every farmer, grocer, student, contractor and teacher from our district.” At the convention, it was comforting for Cashman to learn that North Country struggles are mirrored nationwide. His own concerns included making higher education affordable and growing the middle class. While there that Monday through Friday, he was up at 5:45 a.m. to catch the shuttle a half hour later and was home around 2 a.m. Cashman shared his experience, through commentary and photos, on Facebook: “I wanted to provide a local connection to a national event.” The journey was electrifying, such as when Clinton took the stage, seemingly

Dissolution: Holderman needs to leave committee; Village Board should allow K-ville residents to vote


wo things have been made clear over the past nine months: Dissolution is in the best interest of the village of Keeseville; but the board of trustees, especially Mayor Dale Holderman, will do everything to stand in its way. The Keeseville Dissolution Committee has been meeting since January, assigned by the village board to look at the possibility of the dissolution of the village along with other options that could save taxpayers money. The Valley News has been present at all but one of these meetings, watching the process unfold and the reactions of town and village leaders. No one else can say that. Only once has there been a reporter from another news agency present, and that person is currently employed by us. Through those meetings, it has become clear that village government is not needed in Keeseville and thus needs to be dissolved. First, the towns of Ausable and Chesterfield already provide many key services for the residents of the village. Towns are responsible to provide services to all their residents, outside or inside the village. Also, village court and other services have already been taken over by the towns. Eliminating the village eliminates the redundancy that currently exists. When it comes to water and sewer, the two towns have already stated their commitment to continue to serve the residents. Members from each town council have also brought up the possibility of expansion, lowering rates for all system users. Holderman, who was elected to the position after the dissolution committee had started to meet, sent out a letter to residents of the village voicing his opposition. “Village residents lose so many of the things that citizens have worked for over 100 years to accomplish. There are no legal means to hold either of the Towns to their agreements. There is no guarantee that any Village Resident will receive any services at all.” We strongly disagree. As we have said, the towns already provide the majority of the services that village residents currently have, with little needs of expansion. Garbage collection will be eliminated, but there are still transfer stations. Does Holderman really think that town governments cannot be trusted? Does he truly believe that Gerald Morrow, Sandi Senecal or other North Country supervisors do not have

the best interests of their constituents in mind? Or, is this an attempt to save the jobs of elected officials that can be consolidated easily? Is this just an attempt to pit village against town in a border war over a border that really isn’t there? Addressing the other point of losing identity, what is really going to be lost? People will still call Keeseville by its name, just like they do in Bloomingdale. The Revitalize Keeseville organization will still be able to work to improve the community, with Holderman hopefully staying on as a contributing member. Another issue is Holderman is a sitting member of the dissolution committee which was formed to be an “un-biased” group. Holderman stated when he started on the committee that he had no bias, but that is no longer the case, and therefore he should resign his position on the committee. We are not saying that he should no longer be mayor, but he should not have an official capacity on the committee. It has become apparent that Holderman and the board will not act on the Dissolution Plan when it is presented to them. The members each showed their hand. Mary King, a trustee and committee member has not spoken as openly against dissolution but has spent the past three meetings trying to thwart it. There was also the village sanctioning an anti-dissolution meeting Aug. 28, along with the letter sent out by the mayor. We question if an official village newsletter is the right place for a personal, political statement. At the very least, the village board should allow the residents they represent to vote on the matter without having to call for a vote through referendum, where signatures representing 10 percent of registered voters in the village are required. The choice seems clear: If it’s about what is best for the taxpayers, then the village board will allow a vote. But if it’s about making themselves look needed or saving elected jobs, then the village board will do nothing, leaving residents with the sole option of referendum. Do the right thing.

The value of Liberty and Life


ome days it’s hard to be optimistic and positive about the future. Current events around the world, wrangling political parties warning us the other side will drive us into Armageddon, the unemployment rate, fuel prices and the general mood of folks lately is anything but uplifting. I’ve heard some people say the mood is downright mean-spirited and that people seem to be self consumed. Some blame it on the talking heads; others blame it on the political system, TV programming, the media, or the internet. In reality there is plenty of blame to go around, but most of us need look no further than the mirror. We’ve all played a role in the arrival of the dark clouds hanging over our heads these days. The liberty and freedoms we so thankfully enjoy don’t create happiness by themselves, they only set the stage. Like a big jigsaw puzzle, one piece can have an overwhelming influence over the other pieces or it can just fall into place with all of the others. Sometimes the solution to the puzzle is right in front of us, we just have to look. Other times, the solution can be lost in the sheer number of pieces surrounding it. Look no further than the recent events in the Middle East. After years of totalitarian rule, where every move of the people was controlled by a stiff-handed dictator, years of pent-up anger and a desire to test the limits of this newfound freedom are being released. The population there is finding they are as frustrated now as they were before they overthrew the former government. How much do you think their lives would improve if they brought about death to America, as they so often chant during their protests? On the other hand, how much have our lives or the world changed since the deaths of Osama Bin Laden, Sadim Hussein or Moammar Gadhafi? Those three men were killers and treated the people of their nations horribly, but their deaths alone have not brought about instant gratification to their nations, nor have their deaths altered people’s attitudes toward America. They were once influential pieces to the puzzle, but they were never the complete picture. There is no magic formula to finding happiness and a life of freedom and liberty. Like a puzzle it’s a process and one that, after more than 200 years of existence, America is still working to complete. At the core of our Constitution and the rights we’ve been awarded as a free people it all boils down to the value we place on those rights. Without realizing the full value these rights give us they are only words on paper that governments, leaders, lawyers or citizens can easily minimize.

But when we place great value and cherish these rights as one of our most prized possessions, and are willing to risk Dan Alexander everything for fear Thoughts from Behind the Pressline of losing them, we begin to understand their true value. Let me put it another way. Recently I was visiting an employee who experienced a serious accident while on the job that placed him in the hospital, paralyzed from the shoulders down. We are all praying an operation will restore the full use of his body, but until the results of the operation are realized he is left hoping for the simple things many of us take for granted every day. In speaking with him, the joys of moving his body at will, hugging his wife, children and grandchildren, walking on his own two feet once again and the joy of just living his life will now be the greatest of gifts. When the stark realization of what you’ve lost may never return you truly realize the value of what you’ve lost, and if returned, no day in the future would ever be taken for granted. If every human being could come to that simple realization, without undergoing the pain of losing or never having known those precious gifts, and be willing to celebrate that same opportunity with every other human life that shares this small planet, how great would this world be and how thankful and respectful would we be toward each other? Oh sure, we would still have problems to resolve, but we would be far more understanding and willing to work with each other to overcome the simple things while valuing the irreplaceable things. Is any day not a great day where you have your health, family and the freedom to pursue your version of happiness? The most self destructive thing we can do in life is to assume that our happiness comes from someone else’s misery. In life, in politics and in our communities happiness is built on the simple joys of building something together and celebrating the joy of that accomplishment. This country, while far from perfect, will only find its way out from under the dark clouds when we remember to cherish how far we’ve come as a nation and work together to pass along that same opportunity and these important values to the generations that follow.

There are reptilians among us, and they are called the GOP


ears ago, an old military buddy, while showing me his weapons stockpile in his steel-encased panic room just before he went outside to look for fairies and UFOs, warned me about reptilians, tall, blood-drinking shape-shifters from the Alpha Draconis star system, hiding in underground bunkers as they control the world by taking on human form and gain political power to manipulate society. At the time, I recalled one of my favorite shows growing up was “V,” a science fiction series about reptiles disguised as humans that aired in 1983. They wanted to take over the world, too. I rolled my eyes and passed on joining my friend for his outdoor adventure to find fairies and UFOs. Yes, a plethora of books, essays, websites and video discussions on reptilians exist, but I wasn’t convinced until I started listening to politicians recently. I’m no fan of any political party, but Republicans have me convinced that Reptilians live on Earth and have been elected to represent us. You’re probably thinking I’ve been drinking or am pulling one

over on you, but just stick with me a little longer. Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin, calling for the illegalization of abortion, said: “if it’s a ‘legitimate rape,’ the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” I heard that and wondered if the man was ignorant or accusing woman who became pregnant after being raped of being liars. Then I realized Akin is a reptilian, and they need the planet to up its production of babies so they can farm them. I mean, the science community has not only disproved Akin’s comments, but studies indicate rape victims may in fact be more likely to get pregnant than others on the whole. Of course, now I am angry with myself for not realizing sooner that reptilians exist. In 1995 Republican lawmakers stated that when a woman is raped, “the juices don’t flow,” and in 1998 that women emit “a certain secretion” that stops pregnancy during a rape. This statement points to reptilians and reveals that the aliens are

Only a reptilian wanting to manipulate and control the planet would argue that a corporation, which was unable to feel and breathe and experience life but at the same time provided him with the financial resources to manipulate and control, deserved and required the same protections and rights as people. And thinking that the unemployed poor are stupid enough to consider he is one of their buddies and can relate to their plight is clearly indicative of a reptilian lacking a human brain. More recently, Romney accused a massive number of Americans of playing the victim card as they depend on the government and believe America should provide them with health care and food. He said it is his job not to worry about these people. Granted, Romney was speaking at a gathering of other wealthy reptilians and they truly do not worry about people. But his narrow, free-market-inspired comments betray his lack of a human brain, because a free market is only truly free if its participants are able to act freely within it.

Stephen Bartlett

From the Editor’s Desk not as bright as they are manipulative and cruel, given that these statements contradicted each other. GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney has said that corporations are clearly people because they put money in human pockets — an obvious slip up as he subtly indicates with his wording that he is other than human — and told unemployed people in Florida that he too is unemployed, while leaving out his net worth is more than $200 million.

In order to be able to pursue the same opportunities, people need the same tools, and because of an array of factors including, but not limited to, drugs, disabilities, abuse, tragedy and extreme poverty, that is not always the case. These are scenarios in which the people did not initially choose to have these factors in their lives, yet can result in them being left at an extreme disadvantage in life. Often, government-funded programs provide the missing tools to individuals who are survivors and have in fact worked harder in life to get where they are, compared to those gifted with more tools out of the gate. They are not victims and mooches. This is how a community of humans acting as caretakers and not enablers works. Of course, an alien species unable to hide its true intentions would not know that. Well, do you know what I am going to do now that I am equipped with this vital information? Go outside and look for UFOs and fairies. Reach Editor Stephen Bartlett at

Our life coaches, Style and Substance: On funerals Dear Style & Substance:


e have decided that listening is as important as sharing. Our readers inspire us with their advice and questions. Today we would like to share advice given by our readers, friends, and family – advice they gave or received at an event that at some point in our lives we have attended or will attend – a funeral. Funerals are often a time when friends and family gather together to celebrate a life or to grieve the loss of the life, often both at the same time. While funerals can be a time of great sadness, they also offer a time when many people open their hearts to reflection and sharing. Vulnerability is not a quality we often invite into our day to day lives; however, it is a quality that makes us human and can enlighten us to the support and caring that is around us. These “BEST advice we ever received at a funeral” quotes encompass reflections on how we decide to change our lives because we are looking at death in a very upclose and personal way: Happiness comes from within, with outside help. Pay off small debts first and work your way to paying off the larger debts – you will be stress free, at least financially, and this discipline will give you more freedom in all parts of your life. Sometimes we strive to be different and we wind up be-

ing like everybody else. Be comfortable with who you are. Live everyday like it was your last. Treat your first marriage like it was your second marriage – don’t make the mistake of taking your happiness for granted. Say what you should to those you love regularly, don’t wait until they are sick or there is a tragedy and you live with the regret of them never hearing those words. Funerals and wakes bring us to a level of discomfort that we wish to avoid; face the other things in your life that you wish to avoid! Both laughter and tears help us to heal. Don’t worry about how eloquent you are, just show up when you are needed in someone’s life. Take the risk to show that you care. Live your life without regrets; don’t burn bridges, be nice and apologize when you are wrong or hurtful.

PSUC receives further honors By Stephen Bartlett

27341 PLATTSBURGH — For five years running, Plattsburgh State has garnered recognition as being among the best colleges in a process that, while controversial at times, is widely read and accepted. In fact, while some education experts detest it, many more who are concerned with higher education anxiously await U.S. News and World Report’s best colleges. Plattsburgh State tied with Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, coming in 26th among public regional universities in the North. The college also tied with Slippery Rock and Rosemont College in Pennsylvania for the 91st position among all regional universities — both public and private — in the North. The rankings were announced in the 2013 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” and are based on the assessment of administrators at peer institutions, retention of students, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving. “These rankings only affirm what we already know,” said Plattsburgh State President John Ettling. “Our faculty and staff continue to do what is right with our students, as evidenced by our strong performance earlier this year with our accreditation body, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education; our high enrollments; and the results of the International Student Barometer, which showed us to be at the top of the charts among international students on many fronts.” The International Student Barometer, the largest survey of international students, ranked Plattsburgh State 1 out of 18 participating colleges and universities in the United States and second out of 208 in the world for overall satisfaction. It also ranked Plattsburgh State first in the United States and the world in areas such as learning support and feedback and the ability to make friends upon arrival. Many State University of New York schools were ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News and World Report. “We are delighted to see so many SUNY schools ranked among the nation’s ‘Best Colleges’ by U.S. News and World Report again this year,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. “In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and our public colleges have worked very hard to provide an education of the highest quality that is both affordable and accessible. Today’s rankings are a testament to our success and to the outstanding quality of our campuses throughout New York state.” U.S. News and World Report published its first “America’s Best Colleges” report in 1983. Within three days of the release of the 2007 report, the U.S. News website received 10 million page views, compared to 500,000 average views in a typical month. The printed issue that includes the rankings sells 50 percent more than normal issues. Some higher education experts argue the rankings are flawed and focus on fame, wealth and exclusivity more than how well colleges and universities educate their students and prepare them for post-graduation success.

Local families, businesses to hold fundraisers for young cancer patient By Katherine Clark PLATTSBURGH — On a mild Labor Day morning, 5-yearold leukemia patient Matthew Wood of Plattsburgh courageously walked Main Street in Au Sable Forks wearing his Team Matthew orange tie-dyed T-shirt. Four weeks prior to the walk, Wood was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since his diagnosis, his life and his family’s life have changed dramatically. His mother, Kasi Rockwell, said her son went from being an active young boy and playing with his sisters to losing energy quickly and being unable to play like he’s always done. “Just the other day he had trouble getting the strength to walk a few steps and it was unbelievable how he walked through the whole parade,” Wood’s aunt, Danyle Rockwell, said. Kasi said the news of her son’s cancer was both shocking and devastating for their whole family. “His sisters have been there 100 percent for him, going to doctors appointments and making things more comfortable for him,” Kasi said. “It’s just hard for everyone. This has completely shifted all of our lives.” Kasi said she first noticed her son was sick when he started bruising in unusual places. The bruises were not the normal little boy bruises she expected to see on her active child. He was bruised in his arm pits and stomach and when the nose bleeds began she knew something was wrong. “We took him to the doctors, and that night we were bringing him to Burlington and he started treatment, having chemotherapy injected into his spine,” Kasi said.

Family fight Wood’s family, facing many unexpected expenses due to his illness, are still facing a long road to Matthew’s recovery. Kasi, who worked at the Homestead Restaurant, had to take a leave of absence from work to be there for her son fulltime. “His treatment has been ongoing with two trips a week to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington,” Danyle said. “He’s looking at a 3-year treatment, there is still a long road ahead.” Kasi said the support from the community has been a great help and she wanted to thank those who have helped. “I never thought I would be someone who needed help from the community. I never thought this would happen to our family,” Kasi said.

Fundraising As his treatment had an aggressive beginning, so has the help from the community. Danyle said she began planning fundraising efforts immediately. Danyle is selling orange and white tye-dye T-shirts and orange wristbands, the color of leukemia support. She has also arranged several fundraisers, including a bake sale outside the Plattsburgh Walmart on Sept. 15; a single pitch softball tournament and bottle drive in Au Sable Forks on Sept. 29; a 9-pin “buy a strike” bowling tournament on Oct. 13 at the Riverside Bowling Alley in Au Sable Forks and a spaghetti dinner on Nov. 4 at the Keeseville VFW, 1390 Rt. 9. The Texas Roadhouse in Plattsburgh will also host a donation night for Matthew on Sept. 26. The restaurant will do-

nate 10 percent of every food purchase to support Matthew’s recovery for diners who mention the charity between 4 and 8 p.m. Danyle said the support from the community has been overwhelming as she has received donations and sponsorship for events from many area businesses. There will also be a tattoo benefit sponsored by Marked Man Tattoo in Schuyler Falls on Oct. 20. “It’s a really different kind of fundraiser, some of our family members plan on getting a tattoo of the leukemia support ribbon,” Danyle said.

Local teachers attend summer program in Colorado By Shaun Kittle NORTH COUNTRY — People in a small Colorado town have been getting violently ill, and local officials need help stopping the epidemic. It’s no secret that one of the three entities upstream from the town — a chicken farm, a restaurant and a chemical plant — might be responsible for the crisis. To expedite restoring the town to good health, a team consisting of economists, scientists, historians, mathematicians and artists is cobbled together to search for answers. This might sound like a science fiction movie in the making, but the scenario, at least the part about the townspeople getting sick, is based on an incident that occurred about five years ago. That unfortunate incident was the focus of the Keystone Center ’s Key Issues: Bringing Environmental Issues to the Classroom program, which brought teachers from throughout the U.S. and Canada, including three from the North Country, together in Keystone, Colo. for a week of learning about learning. The teachers were sponsored by GeorgiaPacific, a company that has paid for approximately 140 teachers, six total from the North Country, to attend the program since 1996.

“The focus is on environmental education, and giving that opportunity to teachers in our local communities,” said Karen Cole, communications manager for Georgia-Pacific. Attendees of the immersive five-day program didn’t spend their time sitting in lectures or buried in books, though. Instead, they became active participants in a role-playing scenario, which tasked them with determining the source of water pollution in the town. Scientific analysis of different locations had to be done, but the program was only partly about research methods. Different stakeholders, such as business owners, town board members and citizens, complete with wigs, costumes and fake moustaches, were portrayed by Keystone Center staff and by the program’s participants, forcing the teachers to examine different biases and interests within the scenario. “I had to play the role of a land developer, and look at things from an economic point of view, which is completely foreign to me,” said John Oliver, a science teacher at Willsboro Central School who attended the program. The multiple disciplines represented, like math and art, also provided different points of view in the problem-solving process. But as the participants uncovered more about the water ’s source of contamination,

they also began uncovering something about their own methods — bias. “The conference focus was recognizing bias in research, but they didn’t teach us about bias,” Oliver said. “It took about twoand-a-half days before we realized it, but as we did our research, our own biases started to pop up.” For Oliver, the realization shined a light on a bigger problem. “I think bias is huge in science right now; doing research to bring you to an answer instead of doing research and discovering an answer,” Oliver said. Oliver found the realization useful, and applicable to his own teaching methods. “I’d like to open up the minds of the kids,” he said. “People can be wrong, and you just have to go where the evidence leads you, even if you don’t like where it leads.” Colleen Ryan, a math teacher at AuSable Valley Middle School, said the program made her feel recharged, and ready for the new school year. “I am going to be promoting this wherever I go,” Ryan said. It also gave her ideas on how to engage students in math by incorporating realworld issues, and research, into the lesson plan. One of Ryan’s favorite aspects of the program was the water quality testing, something she hopes to bring into her classroom. “This was a new experience,” she said. “I’m a math teacher, but I will be tapping into knowledge from science teachers now. Ultimately, when I learn my students learn, and that makes them better citizens.” The multi-disciplinary framework of the program received resounding praise from all three local teachers who attended it this summer, including Kathleen Sciole, a science teacher from Stafford Middle School in Plattsburgh. She said the learning approach was important because it revealed ways to not only take in scientific data, but to share the results with a community, too.

“One of the biggest things I’m taking away is looking at scientific studies from different disciplines,” Sciole said. “Instead of doing a summary, I’ll now ask how this issue affects things like the economic community, the scientific community and the environmental community. This taught us how to have students do that, too.” The three attending teachers also said they’d like to share what they’ve learned with other teachers at their schools, with hopes of incorporating some of the discipline-crossing teaching methods, something Sciole called “21st Century skills.” “It is definitely on my docket to share and discuss this with my colleagues,” she said. “There are numerous ways to teach and relate to kids. We can’t give them all of the answers, but we can teach them how to navigate to find those answers themselves.”

Veterans find a home at Clinton Community College By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — Clinton Community College is a military friendly school committed to its veteran’s population. That dedication recently secured the college a spot on the annual Military Friendly Schools list. “It is an honor to be given this designation for the third year in a row,” said Tracy Guynup, Assistant Registrar and Veterans Affairs Officer. Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, awarded CCC a spot on the list. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that excel at embracing America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. “This shows the community that our college is veteran friendly,” Guynup said. “It helps to get the word out to veterans and veteran dependents who are thinking of attending Clinton. We have a lot to offer our veteran population.” Among the top reasons CCC made the list is the school commitment to its veteran’s population. Clinton’s Veteran’s Club, a chapter of the Student Veter-

ans Association, provides students with a sense of belonging, enabling them to maintain their military connection and bond with their fellow Veterans at CCC. Clinton’s Veteran’s Club organizes social and charitable events that benefit Veterans and organizes and participates in a well attended Veterans Day observation. The club also brings in guest speakers, such as Thomas Middleton, a war veteran, CCC alumnus and author of the book “Saber ’s Edge.” “Our faculty and staff have a genuine respect for those who have served in the armed forces,” said CCC President John Jablonski. “I am pleased that Clinton has once again been recognized as a Military Friendly School.” The list of Military Friendly Schools, in its fourth year, is compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings were independently verified by Ernst and Young LLP. Schools are continuously held to a higher standard through improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board consisting of educators from across the country. The annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools will include a detailed 2013 list and be distributed in print and digital format to active and former military personnel.

The historian and author of books about colonial America, the American Revolution, and the Early American Republic spoke recently at Plattsburgh State, sharing concepts outlined in his book, “The Civil War of 1812: American Citizens, British Subjects, Irish Rebels, & Indian Allies,” published by Alfred A. Knopf in 2010. Taylor was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for earlier work. Taylor started by noting the United States was on the verge of losing the war when the Battle of Plattsburgh helped turned the tide. “The Battle of Plattsburgh was very important but not well remembered.” He further pointed out that during the first two years of the war, the U.S. was invading Canada and suffering great defeats, a part of history Canadians remember but Americans have forgotten. He stressed that his book is a borderlands history that attempts to avoid the Canadian and American patriotic stories. Instead, it focuses on the remarkably similar people on the borders who did not want to go to war. Taylor told of a British officer conducting a prisoner exchange who found it strange to find names among the American ranks that matched those of his own officers. “They read the same books and went to the same plays.”






Saying it was Americans fighting the British simplifies a war in which brother sometimes fought brother; the two sides at times were seemingly interchangeable. The British insisted anyone born in Scotland was a subject for life, whether they lived in Canada or Ireland. The United States was in the business of welcoming immigrants and making them Americans, actions the British said were fine as long as America understood if such a subject was found on a merchant ship the individual could be confiscated for the crown’s needs. “A whole lot of people were being taken who were born in the United States,” Taylor said. “The Irish were not happy about this.” The British had suppressed a rebellion in Ireland with great bloodshed, and the Irish in America would end up Dr. Alan Taylor signing books after his discussion on the War of 1812 at being about the strongest supporters Plattsburgh State. of the war against the British. Irish Americans accounted for 9 percent of Those suspected of treason could face a trial that the American population, yet they made up 13 percould kill them or join the British forces. cent of the enlisted population, and those numbers “Desertion is flowing back and forth between were likely higher as they hid their identities because armies,” Taylor said. the British considered them traitors. Many Native Americans fought as British allies in In Canada, the Red Coats’ ranks were filled with hopes of rolling back U.S. settlements in the west. At men recruited in Ireland, thousands of people destimes, tribes slaughtered each other during the war. perate for a paycheck and food. “People may argue over who won the War of 1812, “When American forces invade Canada and many but there is no argument over who lost it: the native get captured, the British made it a practice to listen peoples,” Taylor said. to their voices,” Taylor said.

Rockeater from page 1 Behind them, a giant doughnut seemed to be gaining. I focused on the road, as I veered to the right and then turned toward the beach. The sky surrounding the beach was blue, but above it a dark cloud had settled, threatening something more sinister than rain, and as I passed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, nearly ran over a Smurf and parked near three fairy princesses of both genders, I wondered if I had entered a time vortex. A time vortex is a sort of temporal wormhole used to travel in time, space and sometimes other universes. Part of Lincoln, Vermont is a time vortex, according to my sister who says she’s seen fairies and UFOs. Uncertain on my feet and feeling like it would serve me best to watch all sides of myself simultaneously, I neared the finish line of this inter-galactic race, the track leading to it edged by men, women, Chia pets, elves, Spider Man and several hobbits, screaming and drooling, arms extended to touch an athlete and establish a connection to the chaos. Amongst shouts of fevered incoherence, a ballerina leapt over a fire pit and zig-zagged toward a mud pit, head first under the net and mud, broke the surface to low crawl as Indiana Jones watched, ready from the sidelines with whip in hand to rescue her if she faltered. Police and firefighters strolled nearby, eyes narrow and certain. The ballerina pulled herself up, still up to her knees in mud as she stumbled to the left, right and then gritted her teeth and yanked each leg out with a “schlock,”and was suddenly on the grass and crossing the finish line. And like the princess and the Batman before, all dripping with mud, she smiled victorious in a contest that seemed more about finishing than winning. To the right of the finish line, a trio of skeletons, all in black with short rainbow skirts, watched silently, keeping a counsel those around them seemed to avoid. Captain Crunch nearly lost her hat in the mud, teeth clenched and worn after conquering sand, pavement, water, grass, mud and fire. “The sand is the hardest,” said Jennifer Blake. “I need to train to run in the sand next year. “I got stuck in the mud and pulled a friend down, but I finished.” Another competitor in black spandex and a skirt dove into the mud pit as two tiny voices in the roaring crowd chirped, “C’mon mommy! C’mon mommy!” Back at the start of the track, wave 3 stretched and bounced up and down as two members of a New York state militia artillery unit from the War of 1812 solemnly approached the cannon, lit it, and, boom, the explosion shook the trees as Mr. and Mrs. Clause were swallowed by the pack. The race at Plattsburgh City Beach totaled 3.1 miles, with waves of runners starting every 30 minutes. They ran over the City Beach, Heritage Trail, Scomotion Creek area and along the Crete Civic Center, navigating a tunnel crawl, scramble net, water wading, fire jumping and mud pit. Mathew Corbine of Plattsburgh took first place with a time of 23:56, while Cassie Sellars of Granby was the first female finisher with a time of 26:28. After the race, athletes painted in mud used their teeth to open water bottles and washed at cleaning stations, the latter gazing up at something I could not see, perhaps their time-vortex taxi home. “It was terrible,” said Captain Underpants, who revealed her secret identity to be Kara Mariano, a student at Plattsburgh State, “but awesome.” “I’m doing it next year.”

United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day. Students, faculty, administrators, staff and community members gathered near Hawkins pond to commemorate those lost that day and honor the courage of those who rushed to their aid. Skopp said those gathered must dedicate themselves to the resolve to “look more deeply into our hearts and minds as we struggle to blend justice with mercy and compassion.” Hope rests in remembering what happened and learning with open hearts and minds, in the hope of finding compassion and the calm of wisdom, Skopp said. “We all have a responsibility to do whatever we must, in order to make a future worthy of those we have lost.” Skopp reminded those present of the courage and expressions of “godlike” expressions of human spirit that rose from the tragedy. He also stressed that history is the mirror reflecting our present and foreshadowing our future. Yes, the past is littered with shards of anger and the rubble of revenge, the ruins of which continue to tumble down upon us. History shows how easily mankind is bloodied by its own hatred, becoming its own enemy and terror. But there is another history too, Skopp said, a shining history of human compassion, creativity, love and wisdom, written brightly over the ages. “If we are honest, in the mirror that is our past we can see both our human-kinds.” Studying the attacks and retaining faith in order and meaning may be tragic, but not doing it is the greater tragedy, the historian said, standing a few feet from the 911 memorial, the pond’s fountains reaching toward the sky behind him. Skopp urged people to clear their minds and seek understanding rather than jumping to conclusions that heap blame and “plunge us toward hasty judgment in the aftermath of such cruelty and calamity. Seeking truth means understanding what those we may despise have to say, something that requires strength.” “Ultimately,” Skopp said, “we might have done something to fuel the hate, and while harm to innocents is never acceptable, we must recognize our adversaries despair.” “I mean, should we not have seen the consequences of our policies and practices in the Middle East and elsewhere, how we had turned a blind eye to tyranny for the sake of our material ‘needs’?” In the end, Skopp said, our wisdom must establish an ethically just world in which everyone enjoys the respect and opportunities “we would want for ourselves.” - 13

North Country soccer officials seek new members By Keith Lobdell

WESTPORT — The Westport Chapter of Soccer Officials is coping with a double edged sword. On the one side, numbers have been decreasing over the past few years for officials, from a high of around 50 to a current roster of 36. On the other, several of those 36 officials are entering the final years of service for the organization. “I have been doing this for 32 years now,” chapter director Jim Monty said. “Pete Jacques is our most tenured member and we have several that have been doing this for a lot of years. Pete and I are at the point where are grandkids are starting to come into the modified system, and we want to watch them play. A lot of the older generation of refs will be gone in the next two years.” The organization of officials covers schools including Willsboro, Keene, Elizabethtown-Lewis, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Westport, Moriah, Crown Point, Ticonderoga, Schroon Lake, Minerva-Newcomb, Indian Lake/Long Lake, Wells and Johnsburg. If each team were playing against each other, a total of 28 referees would be required to cover 14 games - seven modified and seven varsity. However, in the worse case scenario where a total of nine modified and nine varsity games could be played in the chapter, all 36 members would be needed. “We have had situations where we have had to cover a modified game with just one referee,” Monty said. “We will never do that for a varsity game, but it is becoming more common on the modified level.” Monty said that the numbers were not the reason for a pair of games lacking officials Sept. 10, when the Lake Placid - Seton and Westport - Elizabethtown-Lewis games had to be postponed because no officials showed up. “That was an oversight on my part, and I have to take the blame on that one,” Monty said. “We have a new scheduling system and those games were left blank. The schedule is

posted 10 days in advance, but no one noticed it.” Monty said that the chapter is always actively recruiting for new members to join their ranks, even looking at members of local teams that are seniors. “We have sent notices out to schools and put it out there with the coaches, trying to plant the seed with some of these players,” Monty said. “We are looking at kids that are staying local for college and I will work around their schedule, but we are just not getting a response. I can‘t help but think that, as a college student or young adult back in the area, you could not use $1,500 over six weeks.” Monty said that the attitude players see towards the officials from the sidelines may be to blamed for their lack of wanting to stay with the gamer locally through officiating. “You have to have thick skin at times, especially when you are doing the big games,” Monty said. “Kids do not want to go out there and face what they have seen coming from the parents and fans in the stands. “

Monty also said that he was surprised by where the officials come from. “You see a lot of youth soccer and interest in the sport in the Lake Placid region, but only one of our officials is from there,” he said. “The base of our officials come from Westport and Willsboro. You would think that there would be more from some of these others towns because you get mileage to go along with the pay for each game.” Monty said that while he is focused on bringing new soccer officials into the fold, he realized that this is not a unique situation. “All of the other sports are experiencing the same thing,” he said. “I know that the population has decreased and a lot of kids move on after high school, but there are people out there who love the game, and that is what you need to have. I love the game and I always appreciate seeing great plays from these kids, no matter who they play for.” Those interested in learning more about becoming a referee in the Westport Chapter of Soccer Officials or elsewhere in the North Country, call Monty at 962-4737.
