American Heart Association to host annual Heart Walk this Saturday.




Half-marathon this Saturday will honor Robert ‘Chip’ Hamilton





Waffles, cartoons come together this Saturday.

By Jeremiah S. Papineau PERU — The first annual October Half-Marathon is an event that’s been several months in the making, but one Ruth Hamilton LaClair thinks will be worth the wait. “Pretty much everything we wanted to do [for the event] is a go,” said LaClair. Earlier this year , LaClair began planning the halfmarathon in memory of her father, the late Robert “Chip” Hamilton, who passed away in January following complications from a lung transplant. The event was originally planned to be held on Father ’s Day in honor of Hamilton’s r ecovery, but changed to a much larger event in memory of him following his untimely death.

Clinton Community College takes on new recycling initiative with ZeroSort ice. ZeroSort, explained Meyers, consists of installing recycling stations that r eplace traditional garbage cans, allowing for an easier way to separate r ecyclables from refuse. The recycling stations, which will now be seen in the college’s classr ooms and hallways, consist of a ZeroSort recycling bin, redeemable cans and bottles bin, and trash bin. The Zer oSort bin, said Meyers, will be for items such as cardboard, paper, plastic, glass, and metal. The motivation behind partici-

‘Waffle Frolic’ Saturday to raise money for ROTA Studio and Gallery By Jeremiah S. P apineau PLATTSBURGH — W affles and cartoons ar e a combination Kimberly Cummins is hoping people will like. Cummins is joining together with a group of friends to host a “Waffle Frolic” this Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Gr eat Adirondack Soup Company , 24 Oak St. The event will raise money for the ROT A Studio and Gallery, a local arts and entertainment venue. “We had the idea of having a br eakfast and one thing we remember as kids was eating waffles and watching car-

toons,” said Cummins. “It’s a moment in our lives we thought would fun, collectively, to revisit.” The first W affle Fr olic was held l ast m onth a t t he N orth Country Co-op and was a success, said Cummins. This Saturday’s event will mirror what the first did, of fering waf fles made from fresh, local ingredients with a side of cartoons and pr ogramming famous during the Saturday mornings of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Cummins said the waf fles will also be made “veganfriendly” to take into consideration those with special diets.

Arrest made following domestic dispute PLATTSBURGH — Jadie Ratliff , 42, Plattsburgh, was arrested by Plattsburgh Police Department of ficers Oct. 9 on char ges of second-degree attempted burglary, second-degree criminal contempt, petit larceny and resisting arrest. The arr est was made following an appar ent domestic dispute, according to a department report. Ratliff was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court and was sent to Clinton County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.

“We wanted to be able to make something everyone can enjoy, because we have no idea how many people in the community are vegan or vegetarian,” said Cummins. The cost will be a donation of $5 to benefit ROT A, which hosts concerts by various musical artists, art shows and performances on a regular basis. “Where else can you get two giant Belgian waf fles for $5,” said Cummins. The Waffle Fr olic will start at 9 a.m. and r un thr ough 2 p.m. this Saturday.

“When I started in the fire services about 30 years ago, we had many more structure fires and fire-related incidents,” said Kostyk, who serves as a member of the Cadyville V olunteer Fir e Department. “W e can thank that in part to better building codes and materials these days, but I think, r eally, a very lar ge portion of that goes to the focus local fir e departments have put on fir e pr evention.

the importance of childr en and adults alike keeping fir e safety in mind throughout the year. “It’s not just the week it occurs,” said LaFountain. “It’s important to keep an eye out every day for things that violate fire codes or that are unsafe.” And, when in doubt, the public can always call on their local fir e departments to offer their expertise when it comes to what’s safe and what isn’t. “Most Monday nights, ther e is someone at our fire stations if anyone has any questions,” said Kostyk. Any school or or ganization that would like a fir e pr evention visit can contact their local fir e department, which would be mor e than willing to oblige, added LaFountain. “[The departments] have no problem coming in and educating anyone who asks for the information,” he said.

Denton Publications Editorial

Publisher’s Viewpoint

Perhaps we have more in Privatizing public sector common than one might think work deserves scrutiny I W

hen it comes to the issue of privatizing services, ther e’s always a worry that jobs will be lost and the quality of services will decline. While both are valid concerns, it’s important to look at the bigger picture. In today’s economy , we can’t af ford to overspend in our personal budgets. The same goes for governments, school districts, and other taxing jurisdictions. Every means of saving tax dollars must be scr utinized, and dif ficult, oftentimes unpopular decisions must be made. Like privatizing services. The reality is, the private sector is held to a dif ferent level of accountability than the public sector — either make the bottom line, or cease to exist. Private business is not bound by statemandated wage increases or benefits packages which have become way out of line with those in the private sector. The r esult is private businesses operate much mor e lean, pr ovide better customer service and are forced to be efficient to stay in the black. They do not have a seemingly endless supply of tax dollars to fall back on if they are not. It is for this r eason that governing agencies like Clinton County have taken a har d look at moving away from government control toward private control. The county Legislatur e voted last month to sell its home health care service license to HCR Home Care. Based on what we’ve seen so far, it’s been a prudent move. Like many arms of government, the county’s home healthcar e services pr ogram had been hemorrhaging money to the tune of $2 million a year for the past two years. The majority of the legislators agr eed it was no longer fiscally r esponsible to keep pr oviding the services it has for the past 45 years if the county was going to continue to lose money. We agree. At the same time, privatizing services is only an advisable move when it is carefully studied. Based on the presentations made by HCR Home Care and from the information shared with the media and the public by the legislators, it seems like a wise deal. HCR Home

Care officials say they can provide the same level of services at the same level of quality. The company backed up its statements with a proven track record of professionally servicing mor e than 2,000 patients in a fivecounty coverage area, and doing so at a pr ofit. Let’s hope that is the future for the 300 patients here. Another example of privatization may soon take place in the town of Champlain. The Northeastern Clinton Central School District is doing what the county Legislatur e did, studying the feasibility of privatizing services. This time, it’s the school district’s bussing services. The school district’s board of education is obtaining a free cost analysis from a private bus company to investigate how much could be saved — if anything — if the district wer e to contract with a firm versus continue to employ its own drivers. Though ther e ar e concerns over the loss of jobs with such a move, district of ficials have stated it has been the practice of private firms to bring the currently employed workers under their wing. Either way , as Gov . Cuomo once said, schools really aren’t in the business of pr oviding jobs; they are in the business of providing a quality education to our childr en. If money can be fr eed up for that by privatizing bussing, then why not hand over the keys? If a cost savings can be pr oven, it is our sincere hope that the school board does not bow to union pressure and makes the tough decisions we’re all having to make with our personal budgets to make ends meet. It’s been said that anything the government can do, private industry can do better. That may be a bit of a stretch, but it is worth studying in this economic climate, and if our tax dollars are better spent in the private sector, then that’s where they should be.

And, for those more interested in producing compost, remember that leaf mulch won’t r emain mulch for ever. Think of leaf mulch as compost waiting to happen! New gar den beds can be made by covering the new garden space, this fall, with six layers of overlapping newspaper or a layer of car dboard. Cover this with 2 inches of compost and 3 to 4 inches of shredded leaves. By the spring all of this will have killed the sod below and decomposed into a nice rich soil amendment that can be tilled into the soil. Research done by Michigan State University reveals that leaves can even be left right on the lawn. The studies conducted by the university left thick layers of shredded leaves on the lawn and allowed them to decompose where they fell. The grass in their studies greened up faster in the spring and gr ew strong the following summer . Just don’t expect the leaves to disappear fr om view until the grass starts to grow next spring!

Working out with dumbbells


f you don’t already incorporate the use of fr ee weights in your strength training pr ogram, you should. Dumbbells are portable and are an easy piece of equipment to have at home or even at the office for when you have to sneak in a quick lunchtime workout. Dumbbells ar e my equipment of choice for both in my studio to use with my clients and to use myself at home or at the gym. Dumbbells allow you to go thr ough your complete range of motion as well as r ecruit stabilizing muscles that you wouldn’t necessarily use on a piece of equipment that you may find in a gym. Below is a beginner’s workout to introduce you to using dumbbells. Choose a weight that allows you to complete 10-15 r epetitions with good form. If you can’t do 10, then the weight may be too heavy, if you can do 15 try using something a bit heavier. Perform the exercises as a cir cuit (moving from one exercise to the next.) Complete the circuit 1-2 times, and as you pr ogress you can incr ease up to 4 cir cuits. This

How autumn leaves can be useful

or many reasons, I look forward to fall each year. Fall weather is ideal with the sunny days and cool nights. Then, there are the leaves — the beautiful, colorful, useful leaves. Yes, that is correct. Leaves are useful. Leaves ar e one of the best gifts a gar dener can ask for . Why? Because they ar e the most abundant fr ee sour ce of organic matter one can find. One of the most common ways gardeners use leaves is to compost them. To compost your leaves, you can simply stockpile leaves into a bin or pen. T urning them periodically helps speed up the decomposition pr ocess, as does adding some nitr ogen. A fr ee nitr ogen sour ce is your fr uit and vegetable scraps. Just make sur e that your compost pile has twice the volume of leaves as it does in food scraps and never add any meat or dairy pr oducts. Br eak these two composting rules, and your pile will start to smell foul. Part of the beauty of leaves, though, is that you don’t have to wait for your leaves to compost before using them. With some shredding assistance fr om your lawnmower , you can give your leaves useful jobs right now. Leaves make an excellent fall mulch for your per ennial beds and vegetable gar dens.

accurate. We would have to reapply for new grants and permits for T rail Advocates’ pr oposal. It would take another decade to even pr epare to build the path that the gr oup is proposing, and nothing in our curr ent economic climate suggests that any money will be available at that point. The existing grant money will be lost if we do not act on the current plan. So many of us have been waiting for this path for such a long time, I would hate to give up this vision due to an inability to compromise. Debbie Erenstone Lake Placid

MONTPELIER, Vt. — The message fr om two local farms will be heard loud and clear this weekend — the door ’s open, come on in. Hidden View Farm in the town of Champlain and Dimock Farms in the town of Peru will be among farms offering guided tours of their operations during the second annual “Open Farm Sunday” this Sunday , Oct. 16. The initiative is one started last year by Cabot Creamery, a 1,200-farm family dairy cooperative based in Montpelier, with members in New England and upstate New York like Hidden View Farm and Dimock Farms. The idea behind the initiative, explained Hidden View Farm’s D ale Tetreault, i s t o get more people in the community thinking about where their food comes from and introducing them to the men and women who supply it. “I t hought i t w as a g reat idea,” said T etreault, thinking back to when Hidden View was asked to participate. “This lets local people know wher e not only their cheese comes from, but other Cabot products we supply milk for like Gr eek yogurt, butter and others.” Dimock Farms owner Don Dimock said this will also be his first year participating in the Cabot Creamery event. “Sometimes people don’t stop in when they’re curious about how a farm works and where their food comes from,” said Dimock. “[Open Farm Sunday] is a good way to show people we want them to know wher e their

food comes fr om; we want them to ask questions.” Dimock Farms is a 270cow dairy farm, established on 600 acr es. The f arm has grown quite a bit since it was established in 1971, said Dimock. “Back then, when we moved here, we started with about 60 cows and only owned about 275 acr es,” said Dimock. In addition to gr owing in physical size, the Per u farm has g rown i n q uality, e arning the Empir e State Milk Quality Council’s “Super Milk Award” for the past 20 years for its high quality of milk. The farm also won the “Overall Quality A ward” from Agri-Mark in 2007 and was selected as the best farm out of appr oximately 1,300 farms in the Agri-Mark family for the quality of its milk.

Hidden V iew Farm — a 600-cow, 1,000-acr e dairy farm owned by Tetreault and his brothers, Dan and Don — has been featured in Eastern Dairy Business Magazine and Hoar ds Dairyman for the her d management and their farm’s growth over the years. “We want people to come out [to Open Farm Sunday],” said Tetreault. “It’s a great way to show people what we do.” Hidden V iew Farm and Dimock Farms ar e the only dairy farms in Clinton County registered to participated in this Sunday’s event, which will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For mor e information about Open Farm Sunday , visit www

Once she decided to host the event in the fall, LaClair got the wor d out as soon as possible, aiming to get 500 participants r egistered by Sept. 8. “We actually have about 450 signed up,” said LaClair, who added she was very pleased with the response to the event. “I think that’s amazing because it can be hard getting r unners to sign up for a new event. That’s because they don’t know how it will be run or how smooth it will go.” What also was a pleasant surprise to LaClair was the response she received from a call for volunteers for the event. “We’ve got between 175 to 200 volunteers signed up, which i s p henomenal,” s aid LaClair. “The outpouring of support for this event is just overwhelming. It means so much to me and to my family.” The first annual October Half-Marathon will take place this Satur day, Oct. 15, starting at the Peru Volunteer Fire Department on Bear Swamp Road. Runners will line-up a t 8 :30 a .m. a nd t he race will begin at 9 a.m. The 13.1-mile course will take r unners thr ough Per u’s apple country, ending back at the fir e department where awards will be given to the top three finishers of the overall race for men and women.

Love of roller derby helps play through the pain (Editor’s Note: The following is the second in a series of columns written by members of the North Country Lumber Jills r oller derby team. Erica Olmstead, who goes by her derby name “SkinHer Box,” shar es with readers her experience of joining roller derby. The team is gearing up for its first home bout Saturday , Oct. 29, at the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Center against the T win City Riots, a team from Barre, Vt.) hen many of us first joined roller derby, we were told that it was not a question of “if” we would get hurt but rather a question of “when.” I interpreted this to mean br uises, fishnet burns and at worst a br uised tailbone. Serious injuries wer e reserved for serious athletes and I had never viewed myself as an athlete, let alone a serious one. Throughout my life, I pr eviously had a fairly well-established sense of invincibility. I had never had a bee sting or a bloody nose. I got into a car crash my fr eshmen year of college, ricocheted of f of a guar d rail into the opposite field, and walked away with a mild headache. I had never seen the inside of an ER, let alone an OR. I had never had stitches, let alone a titanium plate and six scr ews drilled into my leg. I

pating in ZeroSort, said Kazlo Watson, was for the college to become “more eco-friendly” and “more green.” “We took a look at the amount of trash that was hauled of f this campus on a daily basis and we knew something better could be done to help out the college and to help out the environment,” she said. So, thr ough motivation and inspiration from the college’s Earth Day Committee, the college administration moved forward with

had never br oken a bone; that is, until I played roller derby. That fateful pr ophecy came tr ue for me at a bout in Utica when my body turned one way and one skate simply didn’t follow. I had a spiral fracture of the fibula and managed to tear a ligament in my foot so forcefully that it popped off a piece of my ankle bone. It wasn’t until I arrived home that night in a cast and had to hoist myself backwards up a flight of 15 stairs that I realized the severity of what I had done. I quickly realized that I am not invincible. Over the next few months, ther e were a series of low points: using a bedpan, needing my dad to shave my leg for me, bathing sitting upright in a lawn chair wrapped in trash bags, to name a few . When I filled friends and family in on what had happened, they interpreted my story as a cautionary tale and wer e flabbergasted when they r ealized that I was not done with roller derby. I was not even close. I wanted to skate. As the EMT assessed my ankle in Utica, I remember begging him to let me skate, insisting that the pain had passed and I “felt so much better” because I er fused to accept that I was out of commission for our first bout, a feat we had worked towar ds for

over a year . I’ve hear d the same story in different wor ds fr om so many injur ed skaters. We walk (or cr utch) into physical therapy demanding to know the exer cises that will get us into a pair of skates the fastest. We struggle to balance pushing our limits and also allowing our bodies to heal. We count down the days, weeks or months until we can skate again like we ar e waiting for Christmas. For me, lacing up a pair of skates felt like coming home. Sur e, I was terrified. I was drenched in sweat before I even stood up. But the second I skated my first lap, I felt better than I had in months. I love r oller derby, and with tr ue love comes risks. I may not be invincible, but ther e isn’t a doubt in my mind that r oller derby is worth the risk. Roller derby has given me so much more than it has ever taken, even now. It has given me a confidence I never had; it has taught me to challenge myself and to never give up, especially when I want to the most. It has given me a family of strong women who I respect infinitely. Eventually, I will walk away from roller derby, and when I do, it may be with an occasional limp; but I will walk away one hundred times stronger than I was when I arrived.

gradually implementing the Zer oSort system at the college and, as of Wednesday, recycling stations wer e set up acr oss the entire campus. “Everybody’s been r eally gr eat about jumping on board,” said Kazlo Watson. Casella first started of fering Zer oSort in the Plattsbur gh ar ea last November , said Meyers, starting with r outes it services in the city. The waste management firm now offers ZeroSort throughout its local service area. “We listened to our customers,” said Mey-

ers. “We knew our customers wanted to recycle but ther e wer e some challenges ... items had to be sorted and we were limited, primarily on the things that could only be recycled at the time.” ZeroSort made things easier for customers, said Meyers, as all r ecyclables ar e sorted at Casella’s facilities, saving customers the ef fort and time often associated with handling the task themselves. The implementation of Zer oSort has also helped Casella recycle 35 percent of the materials collected locally. And, with the help

of its customers, said Meyers, the company hopes to reach 50 percent by 2014. “Without businesses or colleges like Clinton Community, that goal would not be possible,” he said. “The cost to do ZeroSort is just about the same as what our r egular trash disposal service was, but we will see a big diff erence in the next couple of months once more people jump on boar d with this and we r eally see the amount of trash being educed,” r said Kazlo Watson. “That’s a r eally huge thing for us.”
