Toys for Tots heading for Rouses Point Sunday Plattsburgh stop nixed this holiday season By Sarah L. Cronk ROUSES POINT — The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Train is headed north this Christmas. For more than 10 years, Sharon Ramsey has sent people down to Plattsburgh from Rouses Point to gather toys from the Toys for Tots train to help the people of the North Country, on behalf of St. Patrick’s Church. This year, however, the train will be going to Rouses Point instead, this Sunday, Dec. 5, at 4:30 p.m. “They had called and they were very disappointed. They go, ‘I’m sorry we’re not stopping in Plattsburgh’ and I go ‘Well ,where are you stopping?’ And they go, ‘Well, Rouses Point,’ and I said, ‘That’s okay, that’s right up the street from me,” recalled Ramsey. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Albert Roman, the Albany-area coordinator of Toys for Tots, said the decision to change the stops was based on feedback from local nonprofit organizations. “It was more convenient to hit more people in Rouses Point than stopping in Plattsburgh,” said Roman. “We’ll be able to reach out to more people by just moving 30 minutes up north and not conflict with anybody.” Though that may potentially be a concern for

people in the Plattsburgh area, Ramsey noted many people have traveled from the Northern Tier in years past, often returning home in bad weather conditions. “If there’s a blizzard Sunday, then they only have to go about seven miles,” she said. Regardless, Ramsey said people are still looking forward to the train’s arrival. And, although Ramsey typically doesn’t go to meet the train herself, she has heard it is quite exciting. “The train pulls up, and I guess the Marines are there and they have little forms and they just call out the names and I guess there’s kids there and they give them toys and sometimes Santa’s there,” she explained. “It’s quite a big to-do.” St. Patrick’s Church volunteers typically receive about 50-60 toys from the train, which are in turn distributed to various families in the area. “It’s to anybody,” said Ramsey. “We kind of want to keep them in this end of the North Country. You can be from Alburg, you can be from Morrisonville, I don’t care.” Another way in which St. Patrick’s Church helps the people of the North Country is through their annual Christmas Party. This year ’s event will be held in the church’s basement, Sunday, Dec. 12, from 1-3 p.m. “We have a rummage sale in the spring and some of that money goes towards this toy party,” said Ramsey, who organizes the event. “Eventually, by the end of the season we usually provide

Papineau

between 200 to 300 toys on our own to local kids.” The party, which usually sees about 100 kids, will give out a gift to each child, who will also get to spend time with Santa Claus. “We want to see as many kids as we can,” said Ramsey. “We definitely will have toys for at least

the first 200 kids.” Although St. Patrick’s Church is involved in the Christmas Party and Toys for Tots, it is not a requirement to be Catholic in order to receive a gift. For more information, contact the church at 297-7361. Editor Jeremiah S. Papineau contributed to this report.

Getting into the holiday spirit NCCCA to host second annual tree lighting, activities Dec. 11 By Anayely Garcia PLATTSBURGH — Let there be light. The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts will host its second annual tree lighting ceremony, Saturday, Dec. 11, from 5-7 p.m. The ceremony will include activities for people of all ages, free hot cocoa and cookies, ornament making and Christmas caroling. An ice sculpture will also be featured in front of the cultural center on the front lawn. “We wanted to share the holiday spirit with the community regardless of faith,” said NCCCA executive director Susan Daul. “This is a celebration for everyone to enjoy time together and [to enjoy] our sense of community.” The event is put together by the NCCCA alongside community members. Although the celebrations start at 5 p.m., the lighting of the tree is expected to start at approximately 7 p.m. The lighting tree ceremony began last year as the NCCCA introduced Christmas-colored ornaments to artists and local businesses. The ornaments were then painted and hung on the tree for the whole community to see and enjoy, explained Daul. Last year ’s event saw about 150 people turnout, she added, with those attending enjoying cookie decorating, jewelry making, creating reindeer ornaments and even having an opportunity to meet Santa Claus.

Justus for the Children in need of help as the holidays draw near By Jeremiah S. Papineau SCHUYLER FALLS — David R. Justus is hoping for a Christmas miracle. This year marks the 40th season he and his wife, Marion, will help provide toys for children at Christmastime through their organization, “Justus for the Children.” However, this year could be the final year of the program. Earlier this year, the North Countryman first reported how Justus for the Children was beginning its 40th year with an approximately $7,000 deficit. “We’re still a little bit over $7,000 down right now,” said Justus, who previously noted he and his wife, who operate Justus for the Children from their Soper Street home, had to take out a loan to finish funding the program for the 2009 Christmas season. “This year is way worse than last year,” he said. Justus for the Children has fallen financially short due largely to the increased

number of people the organization serves, said Justus. When Justus for the Children was started in 1960, it initially helped only families in the surrounding community. Over the years, it grew to help those throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. And, though that has led to further strain on the program’s bottom line, Justus said he feels it’s important to not turn away any family experiencing hard times, especially during the holidays. That’s because, during his childhood, Justus went without many Christmases. He vowed that when he grew up other kids wouldn’t go through the same thing, if he could help it. “We want kids to have something under the tree,” said Justus. “It’s important. But, just when we get one loan paid off, it’s time to get another one to start all over again.” “I don’t want to quit, but I don’t want to dig the hole so deep we can’t get out of it,” he added. The success of Justus for the Children has relied on the generosity from friends and supporters of the program over the years,

including American Legion Post 1619 in West Plattsburgh and members of the New York State Corrections Officer and Police Benevolent Association. However, this year, NYSCOPBA members were unable to provide a financial contribution to Justus for the Children, leaving a big gap in the program’s funding. “That’s at least $4,000 right there,” said Justus. “But, we’re still going to try to pull this thing off.” The Justuses will continue gathering do-

nations of new and unused toys as the program’s distribution season begins and are reaching out to the community, in particular larger organizations and businesses, to help them in their mission. “Anything anyone can do will help,” said Justus. Those interested in helping Justus for the Children may reach the Justuses at 643-0855. Donations may also be sent in care of Justus for the Children, 316 Soper St., Morrisonville N.Y. 12962.

WILLSBORO POINT — Cornell Cooperative Extension will offer a chance Tuesday, Dec. 7, for growers to see first hand how high tunnels can be used to produce fall and winter crops of salad greens and spinach. The main program will be held at Cornell’s EV Baker Research Farm beginning at 10:30 a.m. with a tour of the fall greens research project underway in their fixed and moveable tunnels. The project compares leafy crops grown inside and outside the tunnels at different timings as well as crops grown without cover with those where cover was added later. Further discussion and a presentation over lunch will be at the Willsboro Visitor ’s Center. The group will then travel north to Rehoboth Homestead in Peru to see their fixed tunnel crops. Those interested in seeing a 96-foot long rolling tunnel can begin the day at 9 a.m. in Wadhams, just north of Westport. Details and directions for all stops will be given to all who register in advance. Judson Reid, regional vegetable specialist from western New York will be the guest speaker along with Michael Davis, manager of the Baker Research Farm, and local growers. The cost of the program is $10 per person, which includes lunch and materials. For more information or to register, contact Amy Ivy at 561-7450, ext. 104, or e-mail The project is funded in part by a grant from the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program.

Indoor farmers market taking off, organizer says By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — The weather may be getting colder outside, but inside, things are just warming up. The weekly indoor farmers market at the City Recreation Center on the PARC Oval has been doing well since it first opened Nov. 18, said organizer Beth Spaugh, far exceeding her expectations, she said. “October farmers markets around here have tended to be pretty quiet, even on Saturdays, so we didn’t know if folks would come to an indoor market on a weekday afternoon,” said Spaugh, who also hosts a booth with her business, Rehoboth Homestead in Peru. “The first week, customers started coming in a soon as we put signs out, and we were swamped with customers as soon as we opened. People were so enthusiastic and encouraging.” Last week, the market was held on a Wednesday due to Thanksgiving, resulting in a smaller crowd. However, out-of-towners visiting friends and family for the holiday turned out, helping with sales, said Spaugh. This week, Spaugh expected the numbers to pick up once again as buzz of the market increases. “I thought most people would want to avoid shopping on fall afternoons and evenings and would prefer to pre-order and just quickly pick their orders up, but we have many more walk-in customers so far,” she said. The best part of the market, said Spaugh, has been how producers support and encourage each other and how enthusiastic

customers have been. The fact the market features cheese producers, maple producers, apple growers and winemakers adds to just what one can walk away with from a day at the market, said Spaugh. “We actually have a really good range of products,” she said. The support of the vendors has been a pleasant surprise to Spaugh, who recognizes markets in the winter don’t always fly with growers and producers. “Though year-round farmers markets are doing very well elsewhere, most farmers

markets close in mid-October here because the customer base drops enough that vendors can’t justify the time at market,” explained Spaugh. “Our producers were taking a risk in joining the market, and I really appreciate that.” One vendor, Richard Lamoy of Hid-inPines Vineyard in Morrisonville, agreed. “The market seems to be off to a pretty good start, especially considering the time of year,” said Lamoy. “It is heartening to see so many people of the North Country interested in getting fresh products from small

growers and crafters ... The market has provided me with a bit of foot traffic as well as on-line exposure.” Spaugh said she would like to see more vendors participate, particularly those offering more grass-fed beef and artisan breads. “We expect to have grass-fed beef at the Dec. 23 market, but would love to find a producer who will have it available before then,” she said. The main thing Spaugh said she would like to focus on to enhance the market experience for customers is getting people familiar with on-line ordering in advance — one of the main reasons the market was formed in the first place. “It would be so convenient for folks in outlying areas or who don’t find it convenient to come to market, to put in their individual orders and have one person pick them all up,” said Spaugh, who added she can envision a community having a satellite pickup up point for customers in their area if customers consult each other when ordering in advance. “Pre-ordering may increase as customers get familiar and comfortable with the producers and products, but I think lots of folks enjoy the social community of the farmers market,” she said. The indoor farmers market will continue Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m. through Dec. 23. On-line orders may be placed at Those interested in becoming a vendor at the market or in receiving more information may contact Spaugh at 643-7822.

Latourelle earns national award Plattsburgh State educator garners acclaim for work in biology studies PLATTSBURGH — A State University of New York at Plattsburgh faculty member has won national acclaim for her work in biology education. Sandra Latourelle, an adjunct lecturer in biological sciences, recently received a teaching award from the National Association of Biology Teachers. The award honors a four-year college or university faculty member who demonstrates creativity and innovation in his or her teaching. “I can’t think of a more deserving person for this award than Sandy. She loves teaching science and has dedicated her life to it. She still gets excited when she

has reached a student,” said Dr. Nancy Elwess, a SUNY Plattsburgh professor of biological sciences. “Since joining the biology department, she has been a wonderful mentor and role model for me. I have learned so much from her lifelong experiences.” Latourelle has been an educator for more than four decades and has been teaching in SUNY Plattsburgh’s biological sciences department since 1996. She also holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the college. This isn’t the first time Latourelle has been recognized for her work. She, along with Elwess, was named the association’s 2007 Technology Teacher of the Year and received the 2007 Frederica Hollister Professional Educator ’s Award from the New York State chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, a professional honorary society of women educators. Dr. Kathleen Lavoie, a biology professor and the college’s dean of arts and sciences, said Latourelle addresses the di-

verse learning styles among her students. “She gives all of her students a chance to be heard through the lessons she offers them as well as providing them with authentic assessment on their assignments,” Lavoie said. “She tries to incorporate lesson plans and activities that address students who have visual, verbal, tactile, kinesthetic and/or auditory learning styles.” Latourelle said after 40 years of teaching, it’s exciting to know she can still make a difference. “I am very humbled by this experience and truly delighted to be receiving the award,” she said. SUNY Plattsburgh’s intimate setting, added Latourelle, gives biology educators the time and the dedication to help students become all they can be. “It allows students to grow, mature and feel competent to go beyond a four-year program into graduate school for research or health-related professions,” she said.

The Dec. 11 program, “An American Christmas,” will begin at 7:30 p.m. and feature holiday favorites such as “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “O Holy Night” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?” The chorus will close with the traditional singing of “Silent Night.” Yana Groves will provide piano accompaniment. “I designed this nostalgic program to recreate holiday memories for young and old alike,” said Becker. The following afternoon, at 2 p.m., the chorus will host a “Messiah Sing-Along” with David Neiweem on the organ. Participants who have access to musical scores are asked to bring them. Additional copies will be provided. “I hope this will be a big community event. For singers who do not have time to commit to choral rehearsals, this is a wonderful opportunity,” said Becker. Tickets for the Dec. 11 concert are $12 in advance at the following Plattsburgh locations: Baxter ’s Bagels, Meyers Gifts, and Corner-Stone Booksho. Tickets will be sold at the door for $15. For those wanting to attend the “Messiah Sing-Along,” tickets are $5 with a non-perishable food donation to the Plattsburgh Interfaith Food Shelf. Tickets will be sold only at the door.

This years “Ride to Remember” in honor of my son, Cody Allen Sarbou, was on Sept. 26. It was put together in seven short weeks. Thank you to: Lidia and her family for standing in the rain taking registration; Casey and her family; Amy and her family; Nathalie and Christina for making a beautiful presentation and working hard all day for Cody. Thank you for all that participated either purchasing memorabilia or raffles/silent auction. It wouldn’t have been a success without you all. Thank you to all businesses that donated. Thank you to Calvin Castine of Home Town Cable for burning the beautiful DVDs of Cody that Tyler Carrow did. Thank you to The Border Press for making the sleeves for the DVDs and making them so special. To both these local businesses I cannot thank you enough for your kind-hearted selfless generosity. To my friend John Perrotte for DJing all day. We will be giving two scholarships to students from SCS in Cody’s name in June. The ride was beautiful, the weather cleared and we were able to go past Cody’s second home, Silver Lake, where a banner was placed and where family stood waving. We have many ideas already for next year. I am sad to say that those that said I was selfish and could have had more riders had I chosen the route were the crash site was, need not register or participate next year. This day was and will continue to honor his life, not his death, and for his family to be told it was a mistake not to have the ride through there was unkind. No parent wants to revisit where their child was horrifically taken in an accident, especially on a day of celebrating his life. Joy Sarbou-Jubert Tommy Jubert Have a Letter to the Editor?

Helping the United Way It is a great honor to serve as your chairman for the 2011 United Way campaign. Since arriving in the North Country four years ago, it has become evident to me and my family that we are very fortunate to have so many caring and giving people in our community. With the current economic conditions, it is even more important that we challenge ourselves to broaden our reach and engage further participation in this year ’s campaign. United Way of the Adirondack Region is “A Leader In Community Partnership Building And Increases The Organized Capacity Of People To Care For One Another.” Our network supports 36 member agencies that depend on our ability to provide financial resources. I have been actively involved with United Way for over 10 years, and in each community I have witnessed the great results that can be obtained through the support of your local United Way Organization. I am a true believer in the structure and organization we call United Way. The money raised by United Way stays local, the decision makers are local and the commitment is all built on a local focus to serve North Country residents. Take advantage of payroll deductions if your employer offers this option and if they currently do not, encourage them to do so. If you are now retired and have been an active participant in the past, don’t stop; contact United Way directly to participate in this year ’s campaign. And if you have the means to contribute at a leadership level but haven’t in the past, please give strong consideration to becoming a leadership-giving member during the 2011 campaign. Thank you for making a difference for your friends and neighbors through out the region. Kirk Stallsmith 2011 United Way Campaign Chairperson

City and Town with Don Kasprzak and Bernie Bassett I

hope Thanksgiving Day was enjoyable for everyone. It was a special day in our household as the food, company, and discussion while watching football was excellent! November brought Election Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. Those three days are very important to some and more important to others. I attended a Veterans Day Celebration at American Legion Post 20. I have had the privilege in attending ceremonies thanking our veteran’s and their families and I continue to be humbled by their presence and truly appreciate all their efforts and sacrifices in providing the freedoms we all enjoy today. Clinton Community College is now the home of a new national women’s soccer team! The ceremony held for the team at CCC was special as are athletic director Todd Roenbeck, coach Dixon and her coaching staff, the girls’ soccer team, and faculty and staff. I attended the New York State Conference of Mayors meeting in Albany. We will be bringing a list of our legislative issues to Governor-Elect Cuomo in mid-December for

his review and consideration. The Common Council will begin their budget sessions to finalize the 2011 Mayor ’s Budget. The budget must be adopted no later than the second Thursday in January of 2012 and the new council can adjust my budget until then. I attended a Mayor ’s Cup meeting which seems very far away for some but the work begins now. As winter approaches, the Public Works Department has been filling potholes and picking up leaves. We are getting ready for the change of weather which is coming soon. I have been dealing with city employee personnel issues and handling the usual monthly resident concerns. We plan on implementing a new time and attendance program throughout the city to make the process more efficient also resulting in cost savings. In closing, I want to thank my supporters as I was recently re-elected mayor for another term. Unlike others, we ran a positive campaign and I was truly humbled by the margin of victory. As long as I am mayor, I will continue to work in the best interests of the majority of taxpayers and residents! Don Kasprzak is mayor of the city of Plattsburgh.


s I sit at the keyboard reflecting on the past month it is difficult to believe that another one has come and gone! Thanksgiving dinner is just a fond memory with Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping well behind us. All too soon the hustle and bustle to finish holiday shopping will also come to an end and the thoughts of a New Year will start to occupy our minds. I have always found the months of November and December to be very special with family time and opportunity to remember the seasons that have passed. In the town of Plattsburgh we will also be thinking of the past with an astute eye on our future. As this calendar year comes to an end, we are hopeful that, in 2011, we will finally see the signs of economic recovery. I also hope to see an increase in the final sales taxes collected for 2010! Our 2011 budget is in place with hopes the coming year will bring new optimism and investment in our community. We did not cut positions or services for next year, but we did absorbe a significant increase in the cost of doing business, something that may not be possible again if recovery doesn’t come in 2011. Municipalities, like other businesses and families, are also adjusting to the increase cost of everything along with the impact of decreased revenue.

On a very positive note, after many months of work, on Dec. 10, the Adirondack Coast and Visitors Bureau and the Strategic Tourism and Planning Committee will announcement a new Destination Master Plan for our county. This project is one I have participated in with the belief it will help usher in a new economy for the Champlain Valley. It is the beginning of what will become a journey, but the end result will secure our economic future. Please be looking for the announcements and media coverage of the event. It was another month of meetings, events, celebrations, recognitions, management of resources and development of long range plans. Though 2010 was challenging, I continue to feel we are in the right place at the right time. The town is a progressive municipality that is a desirable place to live and to do business. We will remain diverse and competitive while protecting our environmental needs and investing in smart growth planning to help speed our recovery from what has been a very difficult economic period. Best wishes to all for safe travel and a memorable holiday season! Bernie Bassett is supervisor of the town of Plattsburgh.

PHS coat drive now accepting new, gently-used items New Zero-Sort Recycling bins offered by Casella Waste Management are making it easier for customers in the city of Plattsburgh to handle recyclables. Photo by Sarah L. Cronk

Business simplifying recycling for its customers in the city By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — From plastics to cardboard and everything in between, it can be confusing what can be recycled and what cannot. Now, Casella Waste Management is doing recycling made easy. In November, Casella began to offer a new program to its customers — Zero-Sort Recycling. “I think as everybody knows, we’ve been limited on what we can recycle” said market area manager Bill Meyers. “The biggest thing that I always see that pops out is plastics. Ones and twos, ones and twos. Now, ones through seven. Think about what you can pull out of your waste drain.” Meyers explained those who choose to take part in the program are given a 96 gallon container for all recyclables, including cardboard products such as toilet paper rolls and corrugated boxes; glass products such as wine and beer bottles of all colors; metal products such as pet-food containers and soup cans; paper products such as calendars and envelopes; and plastics such as ketchup and laundry detergent bottles. “You don’t have to sort it, just make sure it’s clean, throw it all loose inside the container,” said Meyers. “I think if you do those two things, people typically get very excited and say ‘Okay, sign me up.’” Once the recycling container is picked up, on an every other week basis, the containers are brought back to Casella. “It’s emptied out inside a building and from there it’s scooped up and placed inside a compactor, which compacts it into a 53-foot trailer,” said Meyers. “It compacts that mate-

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh Teachers Association is once again partnering with the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association to host a coat drive at Plattsburgh High School. The drive is accepting coats for distribution Tuesday, Dec. 7, and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Last year, the two organizations provided hundreds of families with coats for the winter and was an event deemed an enormous success. This year, the goal is to reach out to the community for help. Boxes have been made available at both entrances of PHS. Community members can donate their coats to others during school hours. Winter coats, hoodies, boots, hats, scarves, mittens and other winter apparel will be accepted. For more information, call the school at 561-7500.

rial inside that trailer and once that trailer is full, it’s then hauled over to the Chittenden Solid Waste District in Burlington.” Meyers said the solid waste district goes through a process in which the materials are separated. “It gets sorted through conveyors, magnets, infrared lights and then at the very end of the process … it comes out in relatively clean bails, separate,” he explained. Although the Zero-Sort Recycling program is only available to city of Plattsburgh residents, for $24.95 a month, Meyers said it won’t stay that way forever. “Our plan, and really it’s our goal and it will happen, is probably within the next 12 months we’ll be able to offer Zero-Sort over our entire service area,” he explained, which includes all of Clinton and Essex counties and the southern half of Franklin County. Casella is also working with some larger accounts that have interest in the program, including CVPH Medical Center, Paul Smiths College, Northwood School in Lake Placid and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. For more information about the Zero-Sort Recycling program, visit, and also watch a video of the process to sort the materials. “It’s easy, I think that’s the biggest thing,” said Meyers. “It’s going to save you time, it’s going to save you effort and money … and then the other thing is it helps with the positive impact on the environment. The more we recycle, obviously the less material that goes into our landfills. If you put all those together, I don’t see why you wouldn’t do it.” To sign up for the program, contact Casella at 561-7021.

PLATTSBURGH — The American Heart Association has recognized the efforts of top participants in the 2010 Plattsburgh Start! Heart Walk. On Nov. 17, about 50 members of Heart Walk teams attended a ceremony at Geoffrey’s Pub where they were recognized for helping raise $139,000 with the Heart Walk that took place Sept. 25 at the PARC Oval. Money raised will go to cardiovascular disease and stroke research and educational programs that will raise awareness of preventative treatment of the diseases. “We are truly delighted to have the opportunity to thank and recognize all of our Heart Walk companies and top walkers who have contributed so much to make this year ’s Heart Walk a tremendous success,” said Keri Mack, corporate events director of the American Heart Association. The event recognized the Heart Walk’s top walkers, giving out trophies fashioned like miniature Converse sneakers, to the top five walk-

Wattie honored with state media award EAST GREENBUSGH — Travis S. Wattie, public relations professional and advocate for home and community-based care, has been awarded the Excellence in Public Relations Award by the New York State Association of Health Care Providers Inc. Wattie, a Plattsburgh native and Peru High School graduate, is currently the assistant director for Public Policy and Communications at HCP, a statewide trade association representing providers of home and community-based care.

the ‘burgh

Wattie leads the association’s media efforts, working with reporters and editors in key markets across the state to highlight the value of home and communitybased care and garner recognition for the compassionate, dedicated caregivers who deliver these services. “It is a great honor to be recognized by HCP’s Board of Directors,” said Wattie. “Raising awareness about home and community-based care is so important to meeting our broader policy goals.”

ers. Maxine Barcomb, first-year walker and co-captain of the Pfizer team, earned the top walker award after she and her team raised $4,525. Wanda Flynn, community teams organizer for the walk, was awarded for being number two walker after she and her team raised $3,475. Flynn and her team — which included her husband, Tom, and Mike and Cheryl Dodds — organized a golf tournament to raise money for the walk. Rick Martindale from Martindale and Keysor was the number three top walker for raising $2,740 through on-line fundraising. One special walker was 9-year-old MccAlie Narducci, who was given a special volunteer medal for not only being the youngest fundraiser and volunteer for the Heart Walk, but for her hard work in raising $600. Narducci first got involved in the walk with her grandmother, Doreen St. Germaine, who has participated in the Heart Walk for the past five years. Narducci and St. Germaine wanted to walk in honor of Narducci’s grandfather who suffered a heart attack in June. “I’m going to do it again next year

and I’m going to raise more money and go higher next time,” Narducci said. Top corporate walkers were also recognized at the event for their outstanding donations. Team Pfizer, led by Barcomb and Julie Rowe, was highlighted for raising $15,711 for the walk. Raising the second highest amount was Nine Platt Hospitality team, led by Bob Smith, Julie Kramer and other staff members, who raised $9,475. The CVPH Medical Center Team, led by Colleen Bell,was given an award for raising the third highest donation of $5,520. AHA executive director Ashley Edwards said, together, the corporate teams were able to raise more than $97,000. Edwards thanked everyone for participating in the walk but reminded everyone the work does not end with this year ’s Heart Walk. “Heart disease is America’s number one killer, claiming more lives than the next seven combined,” Edwards said. “We are all here today because we believe in the mission of [AHA]. I hope that you realize all the hard work you did to make a difference in the lives of so many people.”

When looking for the perfect gift this holiday season, the best place to start is with your hometown , locally-owned businesses. These businesses are an important part of the local economy, providing goods and service s that are not only as good as those found in big-box retailers, but many times, also offered for the same prices o r better. Forget the common misconception shopping at big discount stores is better for your wallet — it’s not always the case. And, just remember, every dollar you spend in your community benefits local shopkeepers, many of whom are your neighbors and friends. Whether it’s buying a new bicycle for your son or daughter, a diamond necklace for your wife or buying dad that set of golf clubs he’s been wanting since last summer, there are businesses in your community that c an provide you virtually everything you need this gift-giving season. And, in many cases, if they don’t have it in stock, chances are they can order just what you need in time to place it under the tree! Do yourself a favor — and your community — shop locally this time of year and throughout the rest of the year!

Zumbathon this Saturday to help JCEO, Christmas Bureau By Jeremiah S. Papineau


PLATTSBURGH — Exercise mixed with fundraising is the recipe for an event one group of people hopes will do some good once again in the community. Zumba instructors are joining together this Saturday, Dec. 4, at Gilligan’s Getaway to once again help nonprofit organizations this holiday season. The second annual Zumbathon will benefit the local food shelf operated by the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties and The Christmas Bureau, which distributes toys, clothing and other gifts to low-income families in need throughout Clinton County at Christmastime. Melody LeMieux, a certified instructor of the aerobic fitness program and organizer of this year ’s event, said she’s looking forward to building on what was started last year. “I thought it was a great turnout,” LeMieux said of last year ’s event. “And, with Zumba becoming more popular in the last year, I think we have a lot of people who will come out for this.” Having many more instructors certified to teach Zumba has also led to building a network that will help put on an event

LeMieux hopes will be even bigger than last year. “The instructor have really pulled together to work together to raise funds for a lot of different charities,” she said. “It’s great to say that we can all work together for the better of the community. We’re a good team.” Zumba is a high-impact and low-impact exercise that incorporates Latin and international music with movement, with the Zumbathon giving participants a workout and helping organizations help others at the same time, said LeMieux. “We’re just trying to get out and have some fun for a good cause,” said LeMieux. “Every little bit will help. Times are tight, so whatever people can contribute will be greatly appreciated.” The $6 admission that will be charged at the door will go to The Christmas Bureau. Participants are encouraged to bring donations of canned goods for the JCEO food shelf. Last year, more than $800 was raised for The Christmas Bureau, and more than 300 nonperishable food donations were collected for the food shelf. The two-hour event will begin this Saturday at 2 p.m. For more information, contact LeMieux at 376-7380 or

Gospel choir to kick off the holiday season ‘Soulful Christmas’ this Sunday at the Giltz By Anayely Garcia PLATTSBURGH — Five years later, one choir is still bringing “A Soulful Christmas” to people of the North Country. The State University of New York at Plattsburgh’s Gospel Choir will perform this Sunday, Dec. 5, starting at 4 p.m. in Hawkins Hall’s Giltz Auditorium. The show is expected to last two hours. “We always encourage everyone to get here early, so we can start at 4 p.m. and at the latest folks are leaving around 6 p.m.,” said the gospel choir ’s director and SUNY Plattsburgh professor, Dr. Dexter Criss. The gospel choir was founded 20 years ago and it is comprised of mostly students, outside community members, faculty and staff, explained Criss. The musicians, however, are mainly from Vermont. “We decided that it would be fun to do a Christmas concert, and do Christmas carols and Christmas gospel songs, and that’s how we came up with the name ‘A Soulful Christmas,’” said Criss. The show will have performances by the choir ’s step team and praise dance team, which is a “smaller group within the choir,”

according to the gospel choir ’s Web site. Other performances featured will be The Accidentals from Beekmantown High School, and Peru High School violinist Emily Allen. A new aspect being added to this year ’s show is a sing-a-long with the audience, which has never been done before. An-

other new part to this year ’s show is a solo piece done by a new student director hailing from Trinidad. “He has performed in front of President Barack Obama and the Queen of England,” added Criss. Although much advertisement is done in

places like Albany, Montreal, Vermont and surrounding cities, most of the attendees are locals. “Sixty to seventy percent of the audience is from the Plattsburgh community,” said Criss. “It’s definitely more of a community event, probably than most campus performances.” The show is expected to completely fill Giltz Auditorium, like it has done in years past. “There have been times when we have sold out [tickets] and it has been standing room only,” added Criss. Tickets may be purchased in advance in Plattsburgh at Great Adirondack Soup Company, North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, Wooden Ski and Wheel and SUNY Plattsburgh’s Angell College Center information desk. Tickets are also available at Advanced Music in Burlington, Vt. Tickets will also be available at the door. “You’ll hear some of the best voices you’ll hear anywhere in the North Country coming together doing something they love to do and have so much fun doing it,” said Criss.

Keeseville-Peru Ecumenical Choir celebrates 45th annual concert By Jeremiah S. Papineau PERU — The Keeseville-Peru Ecumenical Choir ’s annual holiday performance is a hallmark sign of the holiday season for many and it’s been that way for the past 45 years. The choir ’s roots stem back to the early 1960s, said choir director Jeanette Woodruff, starting with the Keeseville Men’s Glee Club. The group was invited to sing with the Keeseville Methodist Church’s choir in 1964, blending the all-male group’s voices with those of the men and women of the choir. “That formed the KeesevillePeru Ecumenical Choir at that point in time,” said Woodruff, who has been a member of the choir for the past 19 years. The following Christmas season, the choir performed its first concert under its new moniker, beginning its path to becoming a long-standing holiday tradition in the community. Though the choir continues to perform its “standards” each year like O Come All Ye Faithful, O Holy Night, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and the Hallelujah Chorus,

18 • arts and culture

Woodruff said the group prides itself on introducing new selections into its repertoire. “We have a variety of sacred and secular music that we sing,” explained Woodruff. “It’s not just the same music year after year.” The combination of a fresh arrangement from year to year and the fact many members of the choir have been with the group for several years has led to the longevity of the Keeseville-Peru Ecumenical Choir, said Woodruff. “Many people say that their Christmas is not complete unless they attend our concert,” said Woodruff. “And, we have many members in our choir say their Christmas is not complete unless they sing in our choir. People just enjoy it.” The Keeseville-Peru Ecumenical Choir will perform their holiday concert Saturday, Dec. 11, at St. Augustine’s Church in Peru beginning at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 12, at St. John the Baptist Church in Keeseville, also at 7:30 p.m. Admission to the concerts is free, though donations will be welcome to defray the choir's expenses.

The Keeseville-Peru Ecumenical Choir, seen in a past performance, will host its 45th annual holiday performance at St. Augustine’s Church in Peru and St. John the Baptist Church in Keeseville next weekend.

Benji’s Café and Bakery to host free Christmas dinner Second annual event aims to help homeless, seniors and others in need By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Benji's Café and Bakery will once again open its doors to help feed those in need this holiday season. Owners Harold G. and Betty A. Benjamin will host their second annual free Christmas dinner Saturday, Dec. 18, from 2 to 4 p.m. at their downtown Margaret Street business. When the Benjamins held the event last year, it was because they saw a need in the community. This year, the need is still there, said Harold. “It hasn’t gotten any better,” Harold said of the homeless population and number of people in the community on one form of assistance or another. “It’s about the same.” The idea behind the dinner is to once again help senior citizens, the disabled, and less fortunate members of the community by giving them a warm meal and some companionship for at least one day, said Harold. Last year ’s event saw approximately 300 people served at the restaurant and through deliveries made to nearby senior living complexes. “We had a nice turnout,” said Harold. “It felt really good knowing we could help people with at least one meal.” Betty agreed. She recalled one particular gentleman whose wife had passed a way a

the ‘burgh

few years ago and had shared with the Benjamins how, until last year ’s dinner, he had eaten his Christmas dinner alone. “We told him, ‘Well you’re not going to eat alone this year,’” said Betty. “We want to help people again this year. It feels good to help. It gives you a warm feeling.” The Benjamins are now in the process of making final preparations for this year ’s dinner, including recruiting volunteers to help with serving, and soliciting donations for the event. “We got a lot of donations last year,” said Betty. “People were dropping off turkeys and hams, different things we ended up cooking and using.” The menu for the dinner will once again consist of turkey or ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, vegetables, cranberry sauce, rolls and a dessert. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soda will also be served. And, in addition to filling stomachs, the Benjamins hope to fill the needs of local nonprofit organizations by collecting donations of canned goods and money again this year for the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties, the Plattsburgh chapter of The Salvation Army, and The Christmas Bureau. “It’s important because there are a lot more families out there now, with the way the economy is, that need their help,” said Harold. Those wishing to make donations or volunteer for the dinner may contact the Benjamins Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 561-5900.
