Suspect identified in NBT Bank robbery By Stephen Bartlett firstname.lastname@example.org
Police have identified the man who robbed the Plattsburgh NBT Bank on July 3 as Oneil O. Stephenson, 33, pictured above.
PLATTSBURGH – Police identified the man who robbed a Plattsburgh bank this past Monday. He has a criminal past and connections to Plattsburgh, New York City and Vermont. New York State Police have issued an arrest warrant for Oneil O. Stephenson, 33, who is wanted for robbery in the 3rd degree in connection with the July 2 robbery at NBT Bank, located at 482 Route 3 in the Town of Plattsburgh. Stephenson has used the alias Philippe Francois. “He should be considered armed and dangerous,” said Lt. Brent Davi-
son, a BCI lieutenant with the New York State Police. The investigation is ongoing, he said, as law enforcement follow a “tremendous” number of leads. “We don’t know where he is, but he has ties to Plattsburgh, New York City and Vermont,” Davison said. Stephenson is black and heavyset with various tattoos, including one on his right forearm with the word “FLATBUSH” in large letters. Another tattoo on his right shoulder and upper arm features a teddy bear, the faces of two women and cursive writing. Anyone with information on Stephenson should contact New York State Police at 563-3761. CONTINUED ON PAGE 19

PLATTSBURGH — It’s not up to school officials to decide whether to eliminate programs without voter input, said Fred Wachtmeister. And it’s not the responsibility of school district employees to educate young people, said the veteran Plattsburgh City School Board member, it’s the community’s. He further reminded the board of an email requesting they review employee contributions toward benefits. School Board member Brian Herkalo contended that most people who criticize the school board are

Parade participants ready under the sun By Stephen Bartlett
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Most people hand candy out during Fourth of July parades. D&D Meats of West Chazy provides spectators with sample bags of its product line, Jeezem Crow Beef products. “We hand out beef jerky,” said Shane Dutil, who, along with his family, owns the business. Independence Day means much to the family, with an uncle and father who served in the military. “We send 1,000 full-size bags of jerky overseas,” Dutil said. “We try to do as much as possible for the soldiers.” This past July 4 he spent the day in Plattsburgh, preparing to participate in the annual parade. This is the first year D&D Meats participated in the July 4 parade, also preparing a float for the one in Rouses Point. The business did enter a float in the winter carnival and received a great response. Dutil worked steadily as the heat of the sun over head increased, beating down on
him and others participating in the parade. The jerky is made like the “old timers,” Dutil said, which inspired the theme for the float. He spread out hay bails, plastic crows, a log and saw and farm hands, creating a scene from 1815. As he worked, Rod Sherman pulled up in front of him and backed his green Civilian CJ2A in front of the float. The vehicle was number 1,970 in production. “We had the jeep on the farm when I was a kid,” said the veteran Plattsburgh City School teacher. A little further down, Danielle Lukasiewicz helped set up another float. “This is our first year, though some of the other troops have done it in the past,” said the troop leader for 4061 Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York. They participated because they thought it would be something fun for the girls. The theme is red, white and blue and the Girl Scout’s 100th birthday. “It’s so cool, because you get to walk around and hand out candy, and you get to carry a banner,” said Celeste Luk, 8.
Brooke Boyea, also 8, was most excited about riding the miniature horse. “I’ve never ridden in a parade before.” Spectators gathered on either side of the road, up and down the parade route, some shielding themselves under the shade of a tree, though most stood under the sun, steadily wiping sweat from their eyes as the hottest time of the day arrived. The flashing lights of a Plattsburgh City Police Department SUV started the parade, followed by the fire department and the Police Pipes and Drums. Various themes filled the parade line, including War of 1812 reenactors, Plattsburgh’s Lumber Jills, the Lucid bus, local dance groups, soldiers and area businesses, with many people tossing candy to children as they passed. The parade ended with a line of old cars revving their engines up the street. Children slept on their parents shoulders, some in strollers, beaten by the sun, their tummies full of candy, as spectators turned to go home and prepare for the fireworks later that evening.

The meaning of the Fourth of July By Stephen Bartlett
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — In some form or fashion, the Fourth of July, or Independence Day, as it has become known, is about family. Whether they be near or far, dead or alive, the holiday has become a day to hold family close to the heart. “We are very patriotic, because John was in the Air Force for 20 years,” said Juanita Serenko, who watched the parade in Plattsburgh with her husband John. They still wish the Air Force base was in Plattsburgh and said they’ve helped organize parades for years. They helped locally up until two years ago. “It is so well organized, and it is growing,” Mrs. Serenko said.
Mr. Serenko worked for a year after graduating from high school and then joined the United States Air Force. The military shipped him to Vietnam in 1965. U.S. combat units were deployed there beginning in 1965. “I was one of the first ones in Vietnam and I was there for a year.” A sad feeling grips him on Independence Day. “I think about the way they treated the soldiers,” he whispered. “I think about the guys who didn’t come back.” He knew a soldier who was supposed to go home but volunteered to stay on longer. The man left on a gun ship and never returned and to this day is missing in action. Independence Day is a federal holiday in American that commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It declared the country’s independence from Great Britain.
The holiday is commonly associated with parades, fireworks, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, ball games, family reunions, ceremonies and political speeches. The first recorded use of the name “Independence Day” occurred in 1791. In 1820, the first Fourth of July celebration was held in Eastport, Maine. Congress made Independence Day an unpaid holiday for federal employees in 1870. In 1938, Congress changed Independence Day to a paid holiday. Since 1785, Bristol, Rhode Island has held the oldest continuous Independence Day celebration in the United States. On the Capital lawn in Washington, D.C., a free concert precedes fireworks and attracts more than half a million people annually. “We get a lot of family time on the Fourth of July,” said Jeremy Supernaw. “We go to

Rouses Point every year too.” Mandy Rougier appreciates the time with family as well as hanging out with friends. She also likes to dress her three children in red, white and blue. “This is a day I get to
spend with family and enjoy what I have in my life,” said Jessica Murphy. “The little things, like silly little boys eating ice cream. It makes me think of how fortunate I am.” The silly little boy with her was going to be eating ice cream soon because the
Fourth of July is also his birthday and he was turning 8. “I get ice cream and presents today,” said Dalton James Murphy. “But I also like all the colors of the fireworks, especially the green ones.”

New tenant for industrial park By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com PLATTSBURGH — The Town of Plattsburgh is welcoming a Canadian company into its borders. The Development Corporation announced the expansion of Montreal-based Westgroupe into its Banker Road Industrial Park. Westgroupe USA, Inc. just signed a fiveyear lease with The Development Corporation for 178 Banker Road, Suite 200, and will occupy 5,000 square feet. “Expanding our operations to Plattsburgh enables us to better service our American customers and allows us a much more efficient distribution capability in the northeast,” said Westgroupe’s President Michael Suliteanu. In 1961, Rodney Adam Suliteanu founded Western Optical, a Canadian optical distribution company. That company has evolved into Westgroupe, with two divisions that distribute eyewear in Canada as well as exporting their proprietary brands to more than 40 countries worldwide. Westgroupe’s divisions include Western and Wescan. Western’s portfolio includes fashion value brands such as Superflex and Bertelli, as well as well-known designer brands, including Perry Ellis and Elizabeth
Arden. The Wescan division offers an international brand assortment, such as Kliix Denmark, Fysh UK, Evatik, and Converse. Westgroupe was recently chosen as the Canadian distributor of SPY optical and Sun products. In 1990, Michael Suliteanu joined the business founded by his father. In 2009, he became president, overseeing day-to-day operations. “Over the years, I believe we have been successful because we have stayed focused on our customer ’s needs, on servicing their needs and staying ahead of the curve with both quality products and contemporary designs.” He said they were also attracted to the area by the facility itself. “We knew immediately when Matt Boire from CDC showed us the space at TDC’s Banker Road Industrial Park that we wanted to be here,” Suliteanu said. “The facility was in pristine condition and we knew we would be able to set up our operations in a relatively short period of time.” Westgroupe plans to hire between two and four employees initially. “We felt a connection with Westgroupe from the very beginning,” said Erin Hynes, Economic Developer at The Development Corporation. “We are delighted that Westgroupe has selected Banker Road Industrial Park as a location to begin a new chapter in the continued success of the company.”
Champlain Centre celebrates 25 years By Stephen Bartlett
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — One of the area’s economic superpowers is celebrating its 25th anniversary. On Friday July 13, Champlain Centre Mall, operated by Pyramid Management Group, LLC will celebrate the milestone. The one-day event, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., will feature an array of activities, and all proceeds will be donated to the United Way of the Adirondack Region. “The mall is the center of our region’s shopping, entertainment and community activity,” said General Manager Dave Napolitan. The facility was called Champlain Centre North when it opened its doors on July 1, 1987 at its current location after moving from the Lowes Plaza across the street.
Over the past 25 years, the Centre has seen tremendous growth. It has become known around the region as a major employer and host for mall walkers, community groups, tourists and families. People hit the mall for shopping, dining, and movies, with more than 1,100 mall walkers in the past 20 years. With more than 700,000 square feet and 70 stores, Champlain Centre has become the region’s biggest enclosed mall with anchor stores including Sears, JC Penney’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Gander Mountain, Best Buy, Target and Regal Cinemas. Champlain Centre employs more than 1,000 people annually in full and parttime positions that include cashiers, janitorial, landscapers, and sales associates. The mall is also a signifi-
cant boost to the local economy, providing more than $50 million in sales-tax revenue and more than $22 million in property and school taxes since it opened. Friday’s anniversary celebration will include a “Back to the 80’s” theme and include games, contests, entertainment and a dunking booth. It will also feature a free 11 a.m. movie at Regal Cinemas for the first 300 people. Regal will show the 1987 hit movie Top Gun. There will also be store give-a-ways, mall gift cards and discounts from participating tenants. “Our anniversary celebration provides and opportunity for us to recognize and thank our shoppers and tenants, while trying to raise a few dollars for a worth cause like United Way,” Napolitan said. “We hope to see you on the 13th.”

PLATTSBURGH —The Champlain Valley Transportation Museum will hold the Summer 2012 Radical Robotics Camp July 23 through August 3. The camp will be an opportunity for the children of the Champlain Valley to learn about and build robots.

There will be two sessions with a third opening if necessary. Each camp will take place Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until noon. The first session will be held from July 23 through July 27, and the second session taking place from July 30 through August 3. The Radical Robotics Summer Camp will give children a chance to become educated on robots and work in teams to build a robot using Lego NXT Technology. The camp will open to children ages 9 to 14 years old with camps in the future for younger ages. Registration is $50 per child. An informational meeting will be held on July 11 at 6 p.m. at the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum, located at 12 Museum Way in Plattsburgh.

Make the time for your neighbor in need
ne of the biggest issues facing organizations primarily run by volunteer groups throughout the Adirondacks is that people just can’t find the time to volunteer. Between jobs and other family responsibilities, many people don’t think there is any time leftover to commit to volunteering. Yet, what your time can do for others has tremendous value. It makes business sense for organizations to sign up volunteers. A 2010 Volunteering in America study estimated that an hour of volunteering was worth $26. And volunteer firefighters save localities about $129.7 billion every year in the U.S. Firemen’s Association of the State of New York President David Jacobowitz said that statewide studies have shown that if all volunteer fire protective services were funded by taxpayers, it would add about $2.8 billion in labor costs and $4.4 billion in equipment, structural changes, fire vehicle value, and general operational costs per year. Not-for-profit groups are faced with the realities of relying on volunteers for their survival. In the end, if enough volunteers cannot be found, some smaller groups — such as local museums — may have to cut hours or even close. Fire departments are faced with similar challenges. In 2011, for example, the Blue Mountain Lake Volunteer Fire Department was faced with closure due to the decline in volunteers. With the help of the community, which overwhelmingly wanted the fire department to stay active, new members joined and the fire department was saved. Many local fire and rescue departments have dramatically smaller squads than when the current senior members began. According to a report by the National Volunteer Fire Council, the number of volunteer firefighters has dropped 14 percent since 1984. While the number of new volunteers is going down, the age of current volunteers is increasing and the volume of emergency calls remain the same. A majority of the agencies in need of volunteers rely on retirees, many of whom bring a variety of talents from their years in the workforce. Yet, with vacations, “company” and other obligations, volun-
teers are not always a reliable option to replace paid workers. Therefore, more volunteers are always needed to fill in when others can’t make a shift because they are not available. We encourage everyone — retirees, those in the workforce and teenagers — to volunteer, even if it’s only a few hours a week. By helping the local animal shelter, food bank or other small organization, you are helping your neighbors in need. There’s always a little time to help. Only 18.5 percent of New Yorkers volunteered in 2010 compared to the national average of 26.6 percent. According to Kathleen Snow, development director of North Country Regional Volunteer Center, New York state ranked dead last — 50 out of the 50 states — for active volunteerism. During a time of crisis, those in the Adirondacks have proven when there is an imminent need, such as the disaster left in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, they can accomplish great things. Snow said many people called into the office to find out how they could help and have continued to help through the Long Term Recovery group created to continue to help after FEMA left the area. The group includes members of the Mental Health Association, the Salvation Army and Project Hope. Floodwaters or not, the need for your time and effort in the community is ever present. For more information on how you can help the people in your community, call the United Way volunteer help line at 211 or visit one of your local organizations — fire departments, hospitals, libraries, chambers of commerce, museums, social groups, etc. By volunteering, you are giving back, and your time is greatly appreciated.

Jobs hang in the balance
ast week the Labor Department released its June report and the numbers were well below expectations. It was the third-consecutive month of weak job growth. From April through June, the economy produced an average of just 75,000 jobs a month, the weakest quarter since July through September 2010. The unemployment rate stayed at 8.2 percent. Both parties and politicians at every level benchmark their performance based on job creation and a low unemployment rate, even though many who hold and run for office have never truly created a job or been responsible for employing a person with their own money. Speaking from experience, I can tell you it’s a heavy weight on one’s shoulders. Making certain there is enough money in the bank to pay the person hired, cover all the taxes and benefits and dealing with a never ending list of government regulations and reporting is a heavy burden. When things don’t go as planned there is no spinning of the facts or passing blame to anyone other than the employer and employee. As a small business owner, job creation is a very personal thing and no serious employer takes the task lightly, especially when it’s your money being spent and your money on the line for the performance of the tasks assigned to a person. Most small business owners I know feel exactly the same way. I can personally attest that many sleepless nights go by making hiring or firing decisions, dealing with disciplinary issues, benefit plans, work assignments, injuries and generating enough revenue to keep the lights on and the staff working. That said, when I hear politicians and bureaucrats taking credit for creating x-number of jobs and putting people to work, I have to wonder if they really have any idea how the process truly works and that each hire or dismissal is so much more that just a statistic from which to campaign. It’s a life and that one life has dependents and responsibilities of their own that they likely lose sleep over. The whole process of being a small business owner or working for a small business gets brought up frequently in political campaigns and with the state of the economy in its current condition, we’ll be hearing a lot about the economy and jobs in the coming weeks and months.
We’re told that the Labor Department report left economists and investors grasping for any Dan Alexander good news. They Thoughts from found some in Behind the Pressline the fact that the average hourly pay rose 6 cents in June, the biggest monthly gain in nearly a year. The average work week also grew, and companies hired 25,000 temporary workers, usually a sign that they will eventually move to full-time workers, but it’s no guarantee. Economists and investors appear to be living off the sweat and stress of those of us who have true skin in the game. Like a gambler down on his luck, until solid consumer confidence returns, small business employers must continue to risk with every hire that they can maintain sufficient stability in their business to keep pressing forward with little to gain or even go deep into debt hoping for their luck to turn around. Small businesses and their employees represent nearly 60 percent of the US workforce. In the upcoming election cycle politicians will spend billions talking about jobs and the economy. They’ll debate insourcing and outsourcing and who is best suited to create the most jobs and generate the strongest economy. They’ll take credit for everything positive and accept no blame for anything that went wrong and all the while small business employers and the fate of millions of employees will rest on the outcome of the elections, until confidence, cooperation and rock solid belief in the future of the US economy returns to prior form. Each night as the politicians go to bed, they and their advisors will think of new strategies to gain more votes and overcome gaffs made on the stump. Their goal will be to put the best spin on what is or isn’t happening with the US economy. Meanwhile small business owners and their employees will continue to lose sleep worrying about that next payroll, praying sales improve and that the outcome of the elections will in fact have a positive impact on the country’s economy.

The competitive sport of civilian driving I
s it just me, or is driving a competitive sport?
Have you noticed driving down Broad Street, that the stop at the light at the North Catherine to South Catherine intersection has morphed into the starting line for a race to that ends at the next light at the Margaret Street intersection. The goal of drivers in the lane next to you is to not let you reach the end of the street before them at all costs. And if those drivers suspect you might cross over to the lane they are in, they will surpass dangerous speeds in a school zone and ram your car should you muster the courage to change lanes. Since when did passing another driver to switch into another lane become an extreme sport? It’s like Russian Roulette, except every chamber is loaded. I have been minding my own business more than once to look over and notice the driver in the lane beside me intently watching me with vicious eyes, snarling lips, sweat on his forehead and drool on his chin as he matched me, speeding up when necessary to ensure I stayed in my lane. Has this become akin to racism, where the whites have their rooms and the blacks their areas to congre-
gate? If so, who am I in this new world of driving, in which lane assignments are determined by some sort of social order I have yet to understand? The funny thing is, I wasn’t trying to pass anyone. And even more confounding is we arrived at the same destination at nearly the same time, except I believe I exited my car in the parking lot before him and made it into Walmart first, not that I was keeping track, but that dude had my Spidey sense tingling. I’ve noticed too that if I am pulling out of a street or business, say from Sibley onto Rugar or from McDonalds onto Route 3, vehicles in the lane I am pulling into will significantly increase their speed to ensure I don’t pull out in front of them. More than once I’ve had plenty of time to pull out but when I attempt it I notice the car in the lane I aim to enter suddenly racing toward me as if I had unknowingly enlisted in the demolition derby. This is life threatening when there are cars behind you also waiting to exit, because for some unexplained reason they feel the need to kiss your backside with your front bumper, as if our cars were soul mates unwilling to let the other go, which of course prevents me from
From the Editor’s Desk backing up before the derby driver coming my way scores 10 points by ramming me. Then there are the people heading up Cornelia, and as they approach Route 3 and the lane evolves from single to double, they lane-switch 50 times and risk an accident to ensure they secure a spot in the lane that provides them with an extra foot up the road. The comical thing here is that even if they nab the lane and secure an extra car length, they often end up two lights down Route 3 at least four car lengths behind me. Is there some sort of waiver out
there people have access to that releases them from any liability as long as they are engaged in the competitive sport of driving? If there is, I don’t understand the benefit of it, as you would think they would be happy, except these drivers look like rabid lunatics behind the wheel out to catch the criminal who kicked their toy poodle. The motorists I understand the least are those who drive 10 miles below the speed limit on rural roads, but then slam their feet against the pedal and jump well beyond the speed limit whenever the driver behind them has a legal opportunity to pass. Then, they slow down again, puttering along as they count maple tree leaves. But the drivers that frustrate me are the ones who refuse to allow someone clearly in a hurry to pass them by, especially when the motorist in a rush uses his or her fourways and employs the horn. Many times such drivers are dangers to the road and merely deranged participants in the sport of competitive driving. But there are also times when the driver behind trying to pass is in the midst of an emergency and needs to get somewhere much quicker than the drivers caught up in
a race that solely exists in the minds of those willing to risk bodily harm to reach Target a few seconds faster than the car trapped behind them. I remember as a child my mother being rushed to the emergency room from my father’s company party as one of his employees drove me in a car following the ambulance, his horn blaring and four-ways flashing. A leather-clad man revving his Harley cut the employee off and refused to let us pass. My father’s employee, an extremely large man, exited his car and offered the man two choices. The man moved his bike and to this day I look up to my father’s employee, even though his actions were not politically correct and could have resulted in a dangerous altercation. My mother was fine, but imagine if that delay had prevented me from saying goodbye to her before she passed. Driving is not a competitive sport, so get over yourself, because unless it is an emergency, you don’t need to be anywhere that quickly, no matter what you might think.

Our life coaches, Style and Substance: advice on getting a new look Dear Style & Substance: I was out with my girlfriends last night and we decided we need a new “look”. We are all somewhere around 50. How would we go about updating our look, but not looking as though we are “trying too hard”? To become more sure about a direction, start by looking through magazines and modify the looks of makeup, hair and clothes to something you might feel comfortable doing. Change what you say about a cut e style by saying, “I can try that” versus, “Oh, I could never do that”. Choose an area of your look that you are most confident with and improve that; it is easy and those results will boost your confidence to experiment in the not so confident areas. There will be some risk and some failures, but this is a starting point, not a finish line. We first checked in with our go-to makeup expert, Nicolette Terry. Her advice to a “young at heart” woman is to cultivate the look you want to achieve by identifying the qualities you want to show to the world. Do you want to be more confident, passionate, or playful? Trying any of the new “BB” (beauty balm) creams is a great way to smooth out your complexion. Brighter corals and reds for lipsticks or glosses exude confidence. Playful gals can experiment with new eye liners and shadows that complement your eyes. In reorganizing your closet, try pairing up new colors or separates in a different way. A sure fire way to get yourself into a fashion rut is to “match” everything. Over matching
is a hard habit to break, but it dates you, so start with small changes by mixing patterns or wearing a bold color shoe. Monochromatic dressing can be chic and stylish but it can also be too safe and cause you to look frumpy. Find your signature color and have fun. Get a new haircut or color, or style your hair in a new way. Ask your stylist for a trendier cut that he or she can show you how to style. Experiment with product. When we like someone’s hair…we ask who did it and what product they use! Whiten your teeth, a winning smile is always a statement on its own. Our dentists tell us that the over the counter products can get really good results. Happiness is a choice and a bright smile is the great step to an updated, more selfassured you. Get moving…even 5 minutes a day of aerobic activity increases blood flow and outlook on life. You will find that a committed 5 minutes usually leads to a solid 15! Don’t buy into the idea of martyrdom. Putting yourself first means that you value yourself and your roles and responsibilities, and looking and feeling good can only make everyone else rise to a better level. Grow from the inside as well. Filling your mind and spirit with good thoughts, challenging information, gratitude and laughter will certainly give you a “what is she up to?” kind of look! Your updated look will help you achieve the goal of becoming YOU 2.0!

he NCSPCA would like to thank the owners of Keene Lodge for hosting last Sunday's annual "Paws for a Cause" auction event in Keene Valley, along with our many other contributors who provided food, entertainment, and donated items for sale or auction. The event was a terrific success, and our animals greatly appreciate the funds raised toward our shelter. The annual "Gimme Shelter" Golf Tournament is swiftly approaching; July 20 will be here before we know it, and preparations are underway to ensure this event will be as enjoyable and entertaining as that of 2011! Proceeds of the tournament, hosted by the Westport Country Club, will be donated toward our new shelter fund. For more details and how to reigster, please visit http://www.ncspca.blogspot.com/ This week's featured pet is orange-and-white tabby cat Irwin, who was a victim of Hurricane Irene last summer. Irwin, along with about 10 other cats and kittens, was displaced during the flooding and left homeless. When he arrived at the shelter, staff soon noticed that he did not seem to be adapting well to the environment and seemed unwell. We learned that Irwin has a compromised immune system, likely due to not getting the proper vaccines when he was a kitten. As a result, this poor fellow gets the sniffles very easily when he's around a lot of other cats. Although he has had difficulty living around the other cats at the shelter, Irwin
Irwin would be able to thrive in a multi-cat household, as long as the other cats are all up-to-date on their vaccines. He is currently being cared for in a foster home, doing very well on some basic medications, but needs a new living situation by July 31. We are hoping that he will find his forever home by that time so that he does not have to return to the shelter. With his sweet personality and easygoing attitude, Irwin would be a great addition to the right home... could that home be yours?

St. Mary’s fate is sealed by lack of stability By Stephen Bartlett
Rev. James Delbel speaks with parents about St. Mary’s Academy closing. Photo by Stephen Bartlett
ply wanted to ensure the funds would be used for the school. St. Mary’s Academy has a projected shortfall for next school year, though there appears to be confusion on the amount. Delbel said the projected budget deficit for next year is $140,000. He admitted there were positive signs for next year, including increased enrollment, but he said the money was not there. “If I could have seen a brighter future, maybe we could have worked something out,” Delbel said. “I think there just comes a time when you recognize times
have changed and it is time to call it quits.” The parish is not rich, he pointed out. “We have not been able to make a payment on debt in three years, and the Diocese could not make a loan to us,” Delbel said. The economy continues to struggle, he said, and the area does too, especially in the wake of the closure of Pfizer in Rouses Point. Like the rest of the North Country, he said, the area has fallen on hard times. St. Mary’s Academy has existed since 1906, though there has been a
school as part of the parish since 1867. Opening a school occurred shortly after the parish was founded. “This was all French up here and French kids needed a school,” Delbel said. “We have a long history of Catholic education.” Today, it is the only Catholic school in the Northern Tier and would have enrolled 67 students next school year, many of them from Quebec. The children loved the school, as did the parents, and it is difficult to see it end, but Delbel said that is “just the way it is.”
Local people have done what they can and are not willing to put money into it, Delbel said. “It is an older community and a lot of people are on pensions and social security, and the money just isn’t here anymore,” he said. “The church’s income is done, and the whole thing is really sad.” The closure will impact 16 employees. Tuition and donations have been returned. “This school provided a good Catholic education and this is a painful process,” Delbel said.
CHAMPLAIN — St. Mary’s Academy is closing and there is no going back, at least not at this time, says the Rev. James Delbel, pastor of St. Mary’s. The priest said he promised he would never again borrow money to keep the school open and he aims to keep his promise. He further said the school has been unable to pay back its debt. But some school officials see it differently and believe St. Mary’s Academy could remain open. “We raised the money and our enrollment was up,” said school officer Amy Gehrig. “Everything was moving in the right direction. We were doing what we needed to do and are just baffled by this.” “It is over,” said Delbel. Roughly seven years ago, he said he borrowed a great deal of money to keep the school open, also promising that if he had to borrow money in the future he would close the school. And that is just what happened, Delbel said. He met with Diocese officials in Ogdensburg and was given the green light to keep the school open when a $50,000 donation was pulled back. “We thought we were set to go, and that was the trip wire, and suddenly we would have to borrow again,” Delbel said. “I had to keep my promise to the parish.” But Gehrig said the donor took the money back because of a new stipulation that all funds raised would have to be done so in the name of the church. The donor sim-

Parents decry loss of St. Mary’s Academy By Stephen Bartlett
email@example.com CHAMPLAIN — Eric Huberdeau heard St. Mary’s Academy was closing after a $50,000 donation was withdrawn. At a gathering of parents at St. Mary’s Church he offered pastor, Rev. James Delbel, $50,000 to keep St. Mary’s Academy open. But the offer was refused and Delbel said it is beyond that. St. Mary’s Academy is no longer financially stable and is closed. “I think we need to stand behind our pastor,” said Chris Trombley, parish council president. That is not what the many parents gathered there wanted to hear as they peppered Delbel with questions, publicly disagreed with his assessment of St. Mary’s Academy and demanded the school remain open. Some in the audience were angry and others cried at the meetings held at St. Mary’s Church. “It is a hard time for everybody right now,” Trombley said. “It is a hard day.” Delbel explained to parents that he was convinced the school would remain open after his meeting with Diocese officials. At that meeting, he was given stipulations, which required the school to raise an extra $140,000, $100,000 of it by the end of January. The school could not be independent, but part of the parish’s mission, and all funds had to go through the parish. “This is the case in every other Catholic school,” Delbel said. Donations would have to come with no strings attached, because “we have to pay bills,” Delbel said. Within 10 minutes of relaying the stipulations, Delbel said he heard that $50,000 had been withdrawn. “I promised the parish I would close the school if I ever had to borrow more money,” he said. “The Diocese was concerned and let us know they would not loan us any more money unless the school was closed. I thought about it and saw no way out.” “I made the decision. I closed it.” Delbel further said he was not willing to rent the space out and the decision was irrevocable. He said he made the right decision after struggling for seven years to keep St. Mary’s Academy open. Plus, the building has not been maintained and is up for inspection, Delbel said.

“My first responsibility is not to the school but to the people of the parish.” The meeting grew heated at times as parents asked Delbel questions, though those present seemed mostly frustrated because they could not obtain specific answers to some questions and felt they were silenced when they publicly disagreed with the assessment of the situation. At least one individual accused Delbel of being heartless and taking the “coward’s way out.” School officer Amy Gehrig disagreed with Delbel’s numbers and said the parish has not had to financially support the school in two years. She may open a charter school with an emphasis on Christian education in the wake of the closure of St. Mary’s Academy.
Trombley ultimately ended the meeting. “The school is closed. Father is done talking. The meeting is over.” Huberdeau couldn’t believe his offer was rejected. He sent his children to the school because he trusted the education they were receiving at St. Mary’s Academy. “I could come up with the money tomorrow.” Rebecca Yelle, standing outside the church after the meeting, still couldn’t believe the school was closed.
“My child comes home singing praise and glory.” The school teaches her respect and its closure is a loss to the community. She wondered if the closure was more due to the parish being in trouble than the school. Yell plans to contact Gehrig about the new school she may open. Her daughter, Hailey, said she has fun every day at St. Mary’s Academy. “I get to make bunny rabbits and we get to paint snow men,” said the 5-year-old.

Local group is putting ideas into action By Shaun Kittle
firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Once upon a time, there was a sleepy mountain town in Colorado called Boulder. One day, the townspeople decided it was time to put their community on the map. So they took action, redefined Boulder as a magnet for culture, arts and recreation, and stoked their city’s economic engine. “Plattsburgh is no Boulder, Colorado, but Boulder wasn’t always like that, either,” said Colin Read, an economist and interim chair of the economics and finance faculty at Plattsburgh State. Read included Boulder in a list of cities throughout the country that have made major changes, changes that have nurtured economic growth. Among them were Austin, Texas; Eugene, Oregon and Burlington, Vermont. “Each of those communities has created an identity for themselves, and we should look to them for inspiration,” Read said. Change usually requires a catalyst, and for Read it was an economic study he conducted in 2008 on the future of Plattsburgh. The results showed that young and middle-aged people are leaving the area at a steady rate. By 2030 there will be a shortage of almost 4,000 employees and 10,000 residents in the county, adding to the loss of 5,000 residents in the past 20 years, the study showed. But there is a solution —
staunch the flow of departure by keeping or attracting at least 3,000 families to the area by 2040. “I’m an economist, so I worry about this sort of thing,” Read said. “If we know this, we can’t afford not to act on it.” And that’s exactly what Read did, but he wasn’t alone. When Read began holding meetings under the moniker Vision 2040 to discuss options for revitalizing the community, he was unaware that others were also meeting informally for the same purpose. In 2009, the two groups began collaborating under one banner—Vision 2 Action. “The effort is to show there is vision and conversion to action,” said Bob Smith, chairman of Vision 2 Action. “We want to make this a vibrant community and show people that they can be a part of this greater force to make change.” Smith has been involved from day one and said that V2A, with the help of the Clinton County Development Corporation, was set up to facilitate conversations between individuals and grassroots organizations on how to bring people to Plattsburgh, and keep them there. Evaluating projects that were close to completion was the first step. “Sometimes when you take on a new project, it can seem overwhelming,” Smith said. “What we’ve done is identify specific things that are close to a positive tipping point so we can help

We’re building great markets for Northeast family dairy farms!
At Agri-Mark, we have two great brands that create great local markets and generate income for our farmers. Our award-winning Cabot brand of Vermont cheddar cheese, butter, and other dairy products continues to grow each year, adding to our farmers’ milk checks. Our Cabot cheese
again won the title of “World’s Best Cheddar” in 2006. Agri-Mark farmers also own the McCadam brand of New York dairy products, and that investment is generating income for them as well. In 2007, McCadam won first place at the U.S. Cheese Championships in Wisconsin and the title “America’s Best Cheese!” Agri-mark had a record year of profits in 2007 and the future looks bright!

gri-Mark is owned and controlled by dairy farm families from New England and New York. Our farmers work together in the marketplace so they can receive the highest possible price for all of the milk their farm produces and the best legislative representation possible on dairy issues.

NBT Bank from page 1 On July 2, at about 1 p.m., Stephenson allegedly entered NBT Bank through the front entrance, approached a teller and passed her a note. It demanded money and said he had a gun. There were no customers in the bank at the time, and a surveillance camera picked up Stephenson, who is described as about 6 feet tall, between 220 and 250 pounds. He did not reveal a weapon in the video. Stephenson quickly left through the front doors after the teller gave him an undisclosed amount of money, though his direction of travel was unclear. Witnesses reported him walking in opposite directions. Law enforcement set up road blocks, searched cars and scanned the surrounding area with helicopters and canine units. NBT Bancorp offered a reward of as much as $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the robbery. Police have not ruled out accomplices.
Contact police New York State Police have issued an arrest warrant for Oneil O. Stephenson, 33, who is wanted for robbery in the 3rd degree in connection with the July 2 robbery at NBT Bank, located at 482 Route 3 in the Town of Plattsburgh. Stephenson has used the alias Philippe Francois. Anyone with information on Stephenson should contact New York State Police at 5633761.
(Stephenson) involved in the robbery, and part of the investigation now is locating that person,” said Davison. “There are still a lot of leads that have to be covered.” Stephenson has a criminal background. In August 2006, when he was 27, he pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and thirddegree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Stephenson was incarcerated from November 2006 and released a little more than a year later.

tem. Bass are also extremely sensitive to changes in barometric pressure, and approaching low pressure fronts provide an ideal opportunity for taking bass with topwater plugs such as Hula-Poppers, Jitterbugs or Chuggers. Low pressure causes birds to gather on tree branches and telephone wires, or flock together earlier in the day than usual. Conversely, bees and butterflies will mysteriously disappear from the flower beds they typically frequent and ants will build up bigger mounds around their holes, or actually cover the hole entirely. Cows will lay down in the fields or run around the field with their tails raised high swatting flies before a storm. As bad weather approaches, horses will typically face to the west to face the storm. Experience has taught me to take notice of such unusual behaviors in wildlife. If birds and beasts are acting weird, there’s often a good reason, especially if such actions are exhibited by a variety of different species A few of the other commonly accepted natural indicators include spiders retreating from their webs before a rain and bees staying close to their hives. Many people claim to have pain in their joints, or suffer ‘a pain in the brain before a rain.’ A coming storm is often presaged by bones that will ache, joints that will throb or tooth aches. Such whimsical weather rhymes were common in ancient times, and today they are easy to understand. Low pressure systems can have severe affects on the sinus cavities, thus ‘rain on the plain causes pain on the brain.’ Similar rhymes that come from those times would have to include, “When the wind is in the east, it is not a fit day for man or beast.” “Fish bite least, with wind in the east. But when wind is from the south, it blows the flies into the fish's mouth.” “When the wind is in the west, there it is the very best.” “When a ditch or pond affects the nose, look out for rain and stormy blows.” Approaching low pressure systems often keep scents low to the ground, including the musty smell of the autumn woods or the rankness of a bog. Other long accepted weather rhymes include “If birds fly low, expect rain and a blow” and “If the rooster crows on going to bed, you may rise with a watery head.” “Trout jump high, when rain is nigh. And a swarm of bees in May, is worth a load of hay.” “When sheep gather in a huddle, tomorrow will have a puddle” or “Expect the weather to be fair, when crows fly in pairs” and “When ladybugs swarm, expect a day that's warm.” “When chickens scratch together, there's sure to be foul weather” or “when pigs carry sticks, the clouds will soon play tricks, but when they lay in the mud, there are no fears of a flood.” Despite the best efforts and infinite intrusions of modern communications, there is simply no way to keep a constant track of approaching weather, especially in the Adirondacks. It is the wise traveler that will learn to pay attention to the natural signs. Although such signs are not always accurate, or easy to read, they can often make the difference between a ruined day or an easy escape to safe and dry terrain.
Weather or not! I
t had been a typical summer day in the Adirondack. The blue sky was dotted with tall, fast moving puffy clouds as I fished for bass on a local lake. However, when the sky began to darken and the leaves of a hardwood tree began to reveal their white underbellies, I recognized the signals of an impending rain. There were threatening clouds on the far horizon, and I could smell rain in the air. My ears began popping with the advancing low air pressure system, and the lake’s surface turned flat and glassy. I motored down the lake to take shelter before the wind began to kick up. There were a couple of other boats that had already retreated, but many remained out on the lake. Shortly after I got to the dock, the clouds let loose a torrential downpour and boats began to scramble for cover. Most of the late returnees were totally drenched and they soon provided evidence of just how far removed modern society has become from being able to understand and recognize the natural progression of weather. “I never even saw it coming,” exclaimed one young man. “Me either,” chimed in another. “That one really snuck up on me. The weather report sure was wrong!” Summer thunderstorms have a tendency to sneak up on travelers in the Adirondacks, especially while on a lake where the surrounding topography often limits a view of the distant horizon. It happens likewise on the trail, when tall mountains shield the vista. Despite the numerous natural warning signals that we should heed, travelers commonly fail to recognize the natural signs. Unfortunately, today’s travelers have become too accustomed to relying on weather forecasters, Doppler Radar Accu-casts. They obtain weather knowledge from a variety of sources, rather than from natural observations. As a result, modern society has failed to recognize or retain many of the long accepted, weather signals. Many of these natural indicators have been forgotten. Surely, most people have heard about the predictability of the groundhog and his shadow, which is more fable than fact. However, there are many natural clues to weather that are reliable. Unfortunately, most people do not know what to look for, and others simply don’t know how to observe. I wonder how many people recognize that dogs and cats will often become nervous and jittery prior to the arrival of foul weather. It is a fact, not a fable. Animals aren’t psychic, they can’t predict the weather, but they are much more sensitive to changes in barometric pressure than humans are. As a result, they have learned how to recognize as low pressure systems are approaching from a long way off. So do a number of other local critters. On the cusp of an approaching storm, frogs will typically croak louder and longer than usual. Crickets will exhibit the opposite behavior, chirping less often and more quietly. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Low pressure also causes noises to carry further Brook. Contact him at email@example.com. and thus, the notes of a song bird will be sharper and a loon’s laughter will sound louder, and the echoes will travel further in the night air. Other recognizable signs of an approaching low pressure system will be evident when birds fly lower to the water to feed on the insect hatches that often occur. Trout will rise more readily, sometimes leaping entirely out of the water to pick off insects that are just hatching. The appearance of flies such as the Blue Wing Still and calm waters such at these on Barnum Pond, may accompany either a high or a low presOlive is usually an indi- sure system. However the old rhyme, 'Red sky at night, sailor's delight' is generally accepted as cation of an approach- a reliable indication of fair weather conditions soon to follow. ing low pressure sysPhoto by Joe Hackett
wenty-five years ago, the Chinese government started a bass stocking program to meet the growing food needs of its people. As the Internet developed and provided a glimpse of the world outside the borders of the country, Chinese youth discovered recreational bass fishing. Internet coverage of big money bass tournaments in the United States fueled the next logical step in bass fishing in China – bass tournaments. Though still in its infancy compared to the big-time American bass tournaments, Chinese tournament bass fishing is catching on. The By Howard Hammonds FLW has seen the opportunity for future business development by assisting in the growth of fishing tournaments in China. A population in excess of 1.5 billion offers a future of tremendous growth. During the recent FLW Major tournament on Lake Champlain, I had the opportunity to be the camera boat driver for a group of Chinese bass fishermen and their camera crew. Several months ago, the Happy Fishing Channel, a 24-hour Chinese fishing network, ran a series of FLW affiliated bass tournaments in China. The grand prize was an all-expense-paid trip to the United States to compete as a co-angler in the FLW Major tournament on Lake Champlain. The winner, Wang Zhan, and his film crew arrived in Plattsburgh the Monday before the tournament. The takeoff Thursday morning would be his first opportunity to be on Lake Champlain. The buzz among the FLW Pros was how successful a relative beginner could be against the seasoned American tournament anglers. In the FLW tournaments, the co-angler fishes from the back deck of the bass boat and for the most part fish “used water” behind the pros. Not speaking any English, Wang wasn’t able to obtain much info from his first day pro partner, Darrel Robertson of Jay, Oklahoma. Words can’t describe the look on Darrel’s face when he met his first-day partner - non-English speaking Wang, competing in his first tournament. Nor Pictured is Chinese angler Whan Zhan. Photo courtesy of FLW Outdoors did Robertson know whether his Chinese partner understood the rules — all with a $125,000 payday on the line for Robertson. Darrel is a very successful FLW angler and has won over $1,700,000 in his career. He is also a big-time Oklahoma cattle rancher. But he is probably the easiest going and calmest fisherman on the planet — a great draw for Wang. The next morning, after several last-minute instructions, the tournament took off with me and the Happy Fishing camera crew following Wang and Darrel in my boat at breakneck speeds. The Chinese fish from small aluminum boats with electric motors, not the high powered rockets of the American professional bass fisherman. After a 15-mile roller coaster boat ride from Plattsburgh and much hooting and hollering in Chinese by my passengers, we arrived at Wang and Darrell’s first fishing location. Apparently, none of the Chinese delegation had ever been 60-plus mph in a bass boat before. Let the fishing begin. I positioned my boat 20 yards away from Wang and Darrell, allowing the camera crew to film the action. Now, watching someone else fish is worse than watching paint dry. Every cast when you are fishing is made with anticipation, but when watching someone else do the same, it’s just plain boring — that is, until someone catches a fish. Thank goodness, two minutes in and Darrel catches a bass and then another one, both keepers. It’s on and Wang is down in the boat looking for lures. Come-on Man! This isn’t going to be pretty, but at last he’s ready and fishing and - Wow - he catches one, about a two-pound largemouth. Great, after many photos by the Happy Fishing camera crew he’s back fishing and right away catches another one. Hey, this is fun! The rookie is catching them. Again another one, now Darrel is looking over his shoulder, another one and this one is big! Then a double, Darrel with one and Wang another one at the same time. “Great net job Wang!” I yell. So much for paint drying. Darrel’s isn’t a keeper, now he’s down three to two. It gets worse - two more for Wang in the next 10 minutes, he has a limit. “Oh, Darrel! You’re the pro not a guide,” I jab him. Darrel’s now shaking his head, he looks at me and shrugs and yells, “This kid is good.” Time for Darrel to bear down and he does with a couple small keepers. The pressure’s turned off and so do the fish — now we’re back to paint drying. For a fisherman who is 36 and only has been fishing 6 years, Wang is very talented. Smooth at casting and working his lures. I wish I could report that he blew away the field, but he didn’t. The luck of the draw has a lot to do with a co-angler ’s success. Wang finished 74 out of 127 competitors for the two days. Not a bad first tournament. But Wang built memories for a life time - his first trip to the USA, his first American bass tournament, and getting to meet his hero Gary Yamamoto, who was last year ’s runner-up on Lake Champlain. Gary is to Asian fisherman what Bill Dance is to American fisherman. Great memories. Just when I think I have seen and heard it all in fishing, along come the Chinese. Szechuan Bass anyone?

Education from page 1 unaware of the strong character of a group filled by business owners, educators, public servants, retirees and individuals from all walks of life. Their words come in the aftermath of an overwhelming budget defeat, followed by redemption in the form of a second-round victory, one that didn’t come without bloodshed. These words are also uttered as school officials take to the difficult task of job cuts and programmatic restructuring with fewer resources and no hint of relief down the road. “The latest vote showed people in the city really do want to support education,” said school board member Steve Krieg. They just hated surpassing the tax cap, he added. And some fell on hard times, Wachtmeister said, while others simply didn’t want to spend their money. Next year will be similar, he warned. Inadequate aid, soaring costs and painful cuts have been cycling four years now, and the wheel’s still spinning. The taxpayer ’s growing burden has apparently taken its toll, as voters either can not or will not do it any longer. The ultimate tally in this lengthy battle can be counted in the losses suffered by students over the year. “This is leaving us with educational opportunities for young people that are insufficient,” Wachtmeister said. “We need to have the community realize what is going on. “They need to think about the consequences of their actions.” Wachtmeister has outlined a path for everyone to follow that could be the first step
www.the-burgh.com - 21 in tackling the real issue and subsequently enjoy an improved education system that does not break the backs of taxpayers. “The politicians that represent us are not doing their job. We are in this mess due to the decisions made in Albany and Washington. We are here now because of the faults of others. We are starting to see people turning on each other. We need to put the pressure on.” But that hasn’t happened, and it’s up to the voters to determine what level of education they are willing to provide in the city of Plattsburgh,” Wachtmeister said. “I just don’t think people will come here anymore given what we have eliminated.” He directly asked the board if it had an appetite to open up teacher association contracts and give back benefits. “That’s something for us to maybe think about,” he said. “Obviously there are a number of people who have asked us to open up negotiations.” Negotiations with teachers could begin in less than two years, with administrators next year. The district could examine what other public employees receive in terms of benefits, Wachtmeister said. He also pointed out the desire by many to see suffering among public employees, simply because they possess an adequate benefits package. “And here people are talking about givebacks. I wouldn’t vote to give something back that had been approved, voted on previously.” Wachtmeister added that the district does not employ too many administrators, a group of people that have seen their workload increase significantly over the past few years. “We could actually use more administrators.”

Airborne Speedway recap Sat. July 7 SOUTH PLATTSBURGH — Steve Cote of Ile Bizard QC held off Maxime Pelletier and Bucko Branham to win the Furniture World of VT USA/Canada Masters Late Model 50lap main event Saturday. Cote had a sizeable lead evaporate when the race was red-flagged for a seven-car wreck with 10 laps to go. Pelletier was alongside Cote for the restart, but couldn’t keep pace. Branham’s third-place run was a valiant comeback from an early incident that put him at the rear of the field. He had won his qualifying heat, but pulled a redraw number that set him 12th on the grid. One lap later he was turned around by Martin Lacombe, but he passed 24 cars to finish third. Fourth went to Jamy Begor of Mooers, who was strong throughout. Martin Goulet of Mascouche, QC was fifth. Robin Wood, who also had to race back up through the field from the rear after contact with Shawn Duquette, gained four positions in the closing laps to claim sixth. Positions 7-10 went to Jim Bushey, Duquette, Keith Pelkey and Marc Antoine Demers. “This was a long race for me with the 50 laps on the half-mile and the restarts and red flag,” Cote said, “but I had a strong car and it was a good win.” Cote is the Series point leader, two points better than Pelletier and 19 points ahead of Goulet. Begor is next, 22 points shy of the top spot. Pat McGrail of Candiac, QC kept his hot streak going with a decisive win in the Culligan Water/TDI Repair Modified 30-lap feature. Counting a Modified Series win in Lancaster, NY, McGrail has won his last three starts, including two in a row at Airborne. McGrail stalked early leader Pierre Berthiaume for several laps before taking the lead after restart on lap 12. As McGrail drew away, Berthiaume, Aaron Bartemy, Vince Quenneville and Adam Bartemy diced for
second. A half a lap after contact with Aaron Bartemy, which landed Bartemy a two-spot penalty on a subsequent restart, Berthiaume and Adam Bartemy collided in turn one knocking Adam Bartemy out of the race. Quenneville, Patrick Dupree Chris Cayea and Todd Stone benefitted but Aaron Bartemy rallied back to finish third at Quenneville’s bumper. Dupree and Cayea finished 4-5. Leon Gonyo and point leader Todd Stone stuck to Cayea to place 6th and 7th. Andy Heywood advanced the most positions having started 22nd and finishing 10th. Jason McClatchie ran away with Renegade feature in the Dee’s Pit Stop/TDI Repair No. 70. It was win number three for the Plattsburgh driver. Rick Doner outlasted point leader Kevin Boutin for third. Joe Warren and Lance Rabtoy were next in line. Josh LeClaire of Plattsburgh won the Busch Mini Modified feature, topping Erick Sayles, Josh LaPorte, Eric Reyell and John Bradley. Jessey Meuller lost an apparent Sportsman Modified win for having run the wrong tire. Jason Branham, Sebastien Fournier and Travis Bruno wound up 1-2-3.

Disagrees with commentary To The Burgh: In his editorial of June 30, 2012 Denton Publications Publisher Dan Alexander compared the 3 1/2 year tenure of President Obama and the 18 month tenure of Governor Cuomo. It baffles me that you could even attempt to compare the two. Governor Cuomo has done very well but he is governing one state not fifty. He has people and businesses and infrastructure and healthcare and all sorts of problems to contend with but it can’t compare to what has to be dealt with when there are 50 times the problems. When we went to war in years passed they were paid for by raising taxes or selling war bonds as we did in World War II. We fought relatively short wars such as the Korean and Vietnam which were funded by surtaxes. History shows that President H.W. Bush probably lost his reelection because he raised taxes to fight the first Gulf war. When President Clinton left office, he left a surplus in the budget. Along came the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and President George Bush and his Republican Congress kept the costs off the books. The wars have cost an estimated 3.7 to 4.4 trillion dollars and that does not include future cost of veteran medical benefits from those wars. President Bush cut taxes, established a poorly planned and unfunded Medicare drug plan, and kept the costs of the war off the books which raised the deficit and increased the National Debt. During this same time, businesses and banks were hiding fraudulent practices they were doing. When we bought our house, we went to a local bank and financed it. The bank knew what we could afford and they approved the proper amount of mortgage. As the price of houses grew the banks and mortgage compa-
nies approved sales regardless whether people could meet monthly costs or not. For each new home that was purchased building materials, new furniture, appliances, schools, etc. were needed. However, we realized that most of our manufacturers of hard goods along with new cars were all “off shore”. It seems that the manufacturers were allowed to take their companies out of the country often with the blessing and funding of the government. Governor Cuomo does not have a majority in the Senate and Assembly who pledged that they would not allow a leader to have a second term and they would accomplish that by not working with him to run this country. They have brought this United States to a standstill. Maybe if Congress could work together with the President instead of disrespecting him we could get things done. I am sure that President Obama had prepared himself to have a large job on his hands but could he have imagined all the problems to be solved? He made an uplifting speech at the inauguration in hopes that the nation would feel some joy. Would you rather he had listed all the problems we faced and turned a happy day into a dismal day? Governor Cuomo has done a fine job in New York State and maybe someday he will take his good work to a Federal position but don’t try to compare one state’s leader to one who governs fifty.
