PLATTSBURGH — The city of Plattsburgh has approved a temporary change in the traffic pattern for the section of Rugar Street from Memorial Hall to Sandborn Avenue Extension. The change will be in effect Saturday, Aug. 28, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. According to the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, the traffic pattern change is requested to ease traffic congestion as college students move into dormitories. The one-way traffic pattern will ensure the safety of students and their families as they move into the residence halls, the majority of which are located within a four-block stretch of Rugar Street. Motorists traveling along Rugar will only be able to travel in a westerly direction toward Plattsburgh High School. Those traveling on Sanborn, directly behind the college, will be permitted to drive in one direction only, from Rugar to Park Avenue. Anyone traveling in an easterly direction along Rugar — toward Lake Champlain — will find the street closed at the intersection with Sanborn. They will be diverted along Sanborn to Park, Draper Avenue and then onto Broad Street.

Going to the championships Logan Franks heading to World Ironman competition in Hawaii By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Logan Franks has his eyes on the prize. The 22-year-old Plattsburgh resident and Keeseville native is coming down from his high of placing 11th in the Ford Ironman Competition in Lake Placid July 24. Logan’s placement, which also included scoring the best completion time in his age bracket, has landed him a spot to compete in the World Ironman Championships in Kona, Hawaii. The win was one that Logan had been hoping for, but something he didn’t know he could achieve considering he has only been competing in triathlons for about a year. “I was hoping to be in the top 10 overall, win my age group and break the 10-year course record for my age group,” said Logan, who’s a student at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. “I pulled away with all of them except placing in the top 10. And, I only missed that by two minutes.” Logan, who is a member of U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, credits his time in the service for preparing him for what can often be grueling training. “It definitely gave me the discipline to be able to stick with it, that’s for sure,” he said. Logan returned from a tour duty Iraq in April 2009, and prior to his return, he had one thing in mind — and it wasn’t competing in triathlons. “I was thinking about looking into joining the Navy Seals, so I started swimming to practice,” said Logan. “I was swimming every day toward the end of my deployment ... then I was talking to a friend about Ironman. I went on-line and researched it, I thought it looked extremely challenging.”

That challenge was where Logan decided to set his sights. “When I got home, I dropped like $6,000 within two days from the money I made overseas. I bought a new bike and started training literally two days after I got home,” said Logan. Enlisting the help of Scott Bombard as his coach, Logan subjected himself to training at last six to eight hours a day, many of which consisted of 100-mile bike rides. Many times when Logan felt he was “going to die,” he reached down and pushed himself harder. “Training is definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and that’s coming from someone in the Marine Reserves,” laughed Logan. Leading up to the Lake Placid Ironman, Logan participated in shorter triathlons in Burlington, Vt., and Bristol, N.H., pushing himself to the limit each time. The Bristol race was just a week after the Burlington event, leaving Logan to finish the event even with blisters on his feet. “I’ve done a lot better than I thought I would do,” admitted Logan. “I was just doing it at first to see if I could do it. As I started training more and more, it became not so much if I could finish, but how fast I could do it.” Logan’s determination is something which makes his father, Dean Franks of Keeseville, beam with pride. “I broke down in tears when he crossed the finish line,” said Dean. “He said to me, ‘Dad, I’m going to Kona.’ I’m so proud.” Dean is now in the process of organizing fundraiser to help send Logan to Kona in October. Most recently, the Plattsburgh Moose Lodge hosted a benefit featuring auctions of items donated by area businesses. Businesses like Mountain Riders, Loreman’s, TwinState and Kinney Drugs, among others helped out with the event. Donna’s Hair Salon and Arnold’s Grocery in Logan’s hometown are among oth-

ers that have showed they’re behind Logan 100 percent, he said. “I couldn’t have done this without the community or my family backing me,” said Logan, who also credited Operation Injured Soldier as a major supporter. “It’s awesome to have not only the best family in the world but also the best community to grow up in and have these people having your back.” As for Logan’s thoughts on Kona? He’s keeping it simple. “I hope it’s going to be a good race, but anything can happen,” he said. “Either way, it’s been a fun ride.” Those interested in helping support Logan in his participation in the World Ironman Championships may send donation in care of him to 1821 Main St., Keeseville N.Y. 12944.

Family trying to raise awareness of Deletion Syndrome By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When Samuel Bartlett was born, his parents were unaware of a condition lurking within him that would impede him from living the life of what most would consider a typical child. His condition, known as 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, wasn’t realized until more than five weeks after he was born to his parents, Shannon and Steve Bartlett. And, even then, the alphanumeric jumble left Samuel’s parents with more questions than answers. “When I got the diagnosis, the geneticist came in and told me what he had and handed me a piece of paper that she printed off the Internet,” recalled Shannon. “It was the most negative piece of paper you could have been handed, with medical jargon I didn’t even understand.” “It had a child who was probably one of the worst-case scenarios of 1p36 and just a few blurbs,” said Steve. The medical community didn’t have much information about 1p36 when Samuel was born, and, more than three years later, the same is still true.

Some kids have “There’s not a lot of inforseizures, some don’t, mation, there are no books some have eating probabout it,” said Steve. lems and need a feed“There’s such a lack of inforing tube, some don’t.” mation and knowledge out “Sammie wears hearthere about what this condiing aids, but in some tion is.” kids, their hearing is “It was such a big question completely fine,” she mark, which was pretty continued. “Somescary,” he added. where in his missing What is known about 1p36 genetic information is is the condition occurs in one obviously some part of in every 5,000 to 10,000 his hearing.” births.

the project will be funded. “The whole 1p36 community would just be ecstatic,” Shannon said of the project being funded. “Being able to create something that could maybe give a family a little bit of hope at what could be possibly the worst time in their life I think would be fantastic.” The money, said Shannon, would be also be used to design and build informational exhibit for national conferences on 1p36, which are critical to keeping up-to-speed on research of the condition. “I think it would just do a lot to ease the minds of a lot of people just to know what they’re dealing with,” Steve said of how the funding would be used. If the project isn’t funded, all hope is not lost, said Shannon. “We’ll just continue to do small fundraisers until we get there,” said Shannon. “If we don’t make it, at least we’re raising awareness.

CEFLS grant to help job seekers PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton-EssexFranklin Library System is the recipient of a $255,430 grant administered by the New York State Library. The project will equip a mobile training van to help area residents improve their computer and Internet skills and find employment. The grant is part of a $9.5 million grant obtained by New York — the largest to date in the Federal Recovery Act’s Public Computing Centers category nationwide. “This grant allows the library system and the local libraries to not only continue to do what we’ve been doing for job seekers but also to expand our services,” said CEFLS director Ewa Jankowska. “Libraries are able to provide public computers and free Internet access and help to the public, with evening and weekend hours when other agencies are closed, and now they will be able to offer more direct help and training. It also allows us to bring broadband Internet access to areas where it doesn’t exist today. The local grant project, entitled “New York Computer Centers: Broadbandexpress@yourlibrary” will provide digital literacy skills training and support career development. Using a mobile van complete with computer workstations, on-board Internet access, career resources and training staff, libraries will extend their ability to provide free rural broadband to patrons over a large geographic area in upstate New York.

The Plattsburgh-based CEFLS will partner with the Adirondack Community Action Programs Inc. of Essex County to offer free training at library and other community sites on a regular schedule, beginning in early 2011. The partnership between the library system and ACAP, which operates the OneWorkSource Business and Employment Center in Essex County, will both advance people’s computer and Internet skills and connect them with programs and resources which can help them obtain and maintain employment. “Working with public libraries makes a great deal of sense for us,” said Ellen Gordon, director of the ACAP One-Stop. “And using a mobile outreach vehicle will allow us to tailor our services to the individual and the community in which they live. We’re excited about it and we see it as a great benefit to residents of the area.” A total of 34 Public Computer Centers have been funded throughout New York State to strengthen public computing access and support regional workforce development training through community agencies, small businesses and local partnerships. New York’s successful Round I application has brought $9.5 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funding opportunity to New York. The grants will help libraries, library systems and a participating community college to help provide connectivity, training

and partnerships with local programs to promote employment, re-training and job recovery. “The Public Computing Centers, funded and supported under the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program, are designed to bring the fruits of high speed connectivity to everyone,” said New York State librarian Bernard Margolis. “Many parts of New York State will, for the first time, be able to experience the bounty of communications and content available on-line. The Public Computing Centers are a primary outpost for free public access to a wide array of broadband services. As part of a highly effective network, the PCCs and the libraries of which they are a part, will continue their critical role as a hub for community life and service.” During a two-year grant period, the New York State Library, a unit of the Office of Cultural Education within the New York State Education Department, estimates the projects will serve more than 6 million residents through new and expanded public computer centers and mobile vans created with the grant funds. The U.S. Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration provided the grant opportunity through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act Broadband Technology Opportunities Program.

Community members sought to welcome international students Informational meeting to be held Saturday By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — Those wanting to learn about cultures from far away places don’t have to travel great distances thanks to a program at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Partners In Cross-Cultural Learning, sponsored by the university’s International Student Service Office, is a program that matches newly arriving international students with volunteers from the community. Program coordinator Michelle St. Onge, Peru, explained the program provides students with “an authentic experience of life in the United States,” while local residents are given the opportunity “to glimpse into different cultures through interaction with the students.” “It gives people here an opportunity to relate to people from different cultures,” said St. Onge, “and it allows students to become more integrated into American culture, which is slightly different off campus than it is on campus.” Through “casual, social exchange,” international students establish a “friendly and supportive link” to the community, said St. Onge. Each semester, students are matched with community residents and meet about once a month for informal activities such as family dinners, trips to the movies or casual outings. The PICL program doesn’t require the international students to be housed by PICL community volunteers as they live on campus, noted St. Onge. However, community volunteers — who go through a required ap-

plication process — are encouraged to welcome students into their homes to get an impression of day-to-day life in an American family. “It gives them a chance to see the inside of an American home and see how individuals in an American family relate to one another,” said St. Onge. “Even simple things like where you put your dishes or what your restrooms look like are things that are very different that we can take for granted.” The experience is one that educates students and community volunteers while having fun at the same time, said St. Onge. “It’s getting to experience your own culture through someone else’s eyes,” she said. “And, it’s a way to share your own experiences, your life and the things you enjoy doing with someone else.” “It’s all about fun,” she added. PICL also coordinates various social activities throughout the semester such as bowling outings and sledding parties. Currently, there are more than 50 volunteer and international student partnerships through the PICL program. “We’d like more community partners to participate because, right now, we only have enough to get the new incoming students paired up,” said St. Onge, who noted the program sometimes struggles with community interest. “Sometimes we get returning students who would like to have a new partner and we’d like to have enough partners to rematch them. We’re always looking for more volunteers.” This Saturday, Aug. 28, an informational meeting about the PICL program will be held in the auditorium of the Plattsburgh Public Library, 19 Oak St. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. Applications to become a PICL community volunteer will be made available during the meeting and will continue to be

United Way plans its annual campaign kick-off breakfast PLATTSBURGH — The United Way of the Adirondack Region Inc. will officially kick off its 2011-12 fundraising campaign with its annual campaign kick-off breakfast Thursday, Sept. 16. The breakfast will be held at the West Side Ballroom, 253 New York Road, beginning at 8 a.m. John C. Bernardi, executive director of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, will announce the results of the pacesetters campaign. Pacesetters are those who conduct in-house United Way campaigns during the month of August to show their leadership and community spirit by helping to get the United Way campaign off to a good start. The 2011-12 campaign will be under the leadership of chairman Kirk A. Stallsmith, vice president of operations for the Plattsburgh division of Georgia Pacific. Stallsmith has extended an offer to anyone in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties who would like to get involved and become a campaign volunteer to contact the United Way. The volunteer opportunity can be a very enriching and rewarding experience, said Stallsmith, who noted volunteers are much needed as the campaign team works toward meeting a $750,000 fundraising goal. “Our mission is to be a leader in community partnership building and to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another,” added Bernardi. “We are really excited about the campaign this year and we have assembled a tremendous group of people who are committed to the success of the campaign.” The campaign kick-off breakfast will be open to the public with a cost of $15 per person or $120 per eight-person table. Registration forms may be downloaded from the United Way’s Web site,, under the Special Events section. Registration forms must be turned in by Thursday, Sept. 9. For more information about helping the United Way or registering for the breakfast, call the United Way of the Adirondack Region at 563-0028.

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh Rotary Club has found a fun and unique way to raise money for their organization. For the first time, the nonprofit organization which helps raise money for other organizations will host a “Bed Race,” Saturday, Sept. 11, at 3:15 p.m. Looking for a different type of fundraiser, members of the club spoke with other clubs in the country, and with ideas from members Steve Fredericks and Keith Tyo, a plan was put together. Teams, which consist of five participants and two optional alternates, must have one person in a bed, with two people pushing at the headboard, and two at the footboard. Races will be held at City Hall Place. “They will race it up to a halfway finish line of approximately 30 yards,” explained Plattsburgh Rotary Club’s president-elect Jon Cooper. “Cross that line, turn around and race it back.” The requirements of the bed are they must include a footboard, headboard, mattress, and at least four wheels of any size. Teams may also choose to use one of the four beds offered by Rotary, instead of their own. “The beds were built by a different organization,” Cooper explained. “They did this as a project for Rotary, which was just outstanding.” Races will be held in heats, with the top finisher in each heat advancing to the finals. During the finals, the teams will race their beds with the passenger wearing a nightgown provided by Rotary. At the midway point the person in bed must switch with an-

August 28 - September 3, 2010

other member of the team, and put on the night gown securely before continuing. With the goal of having 64 teams sign up, cash prizes will be given out to the top three teams — $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and $100 for third place. There will also be a special prize of $150 to the team who has the best themed bed. “We are really encouraging people to theme,” said Cooper. The entry fee for the races is $50. There is an additional $25 for those who want to use a bed from Rotary, and a $25 deposit for teams who bring their own bed. The deposit will be returned as long as the team brings their bed back with them. “We’re just trying to prevent … people leaving their beds behind,” Cooper explained. “If that’s the case, we’re going to have to charge people in order to dispose of their used bed.” Proceeds from the races will benefit Rotary and the organizations they support. “It’s just about something different, something fun, something that if you participate, you’ll be also be helping Rotary,” said Cooper. “I think Rotary touches a lot of organizations throughout Plattsburgh.” Participants younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a Release of Liability Form. Registration forms and a complete list of rules can be found on the Rotary’s Web site, at Deadline to sign up for the races is Saturday, Sept. 3. For more information, contact Cooper at 983-3311 or e-mail This event is held in conjunction with the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration and the Roducky Derby.

Market stalls to bring life to Bridge Street By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — Since two furniture stores have taken up space at 84 Margaret St. since the closing of Zachary’s Pizza, space on Bridge Street has been noticeably vacant. According to John Clute, corporate council for the city of Plattsburgh, three spaces were created on Bridge Street with the expectation they would be used as a dining area for whatever restaurant took up residence at the current Ashley Furniture Store. “That of course changed and they ended up sitting essentially unused for several years,” Clute said. Six months ago, Clute and City Mayor Donald M. Kazprzak were discussing the street life in downtown Plattsburgh and an idea was formed. “We decided to just try to put together a rather simple program to make these spaces available to artists and artisans that just want to use them for free without any insurance costs or anything like that,” he said. Market stalls, as they are being called, will allow people to utilize the space free of charge on a daily basis, or

for $35 to reserve a space for a week. “It’s pretty much first come first serve kind of thing,” Clute explained. “If it ever develops or grows we figure there’s plenty of space for everybody that might show up.” Clute said the spaces are large enough so some people may be able to share a stall. “For people who are just selling earrings or small items of pottery or stuff like that, those spaces are probably big enough so each one would accommodate two vendors,” he said. “We have three spaces. Six people could conceivably, comfortably fit down there.” The spaces are ideal as they were constructed in a way to keep sidewalks open. “The way they were built … it helps us avoid the kind of problem that you often do with sidewalk vendors,” Clute explained. “People tend to encroach out onto the sidewalk and make it difficult for folks that are handicapped, or [other people] to get by.” If interested in utilizing one of the market stalls or for more information, visit and click Market Stalls. No insurance or vendor license is required.

At least three spaces are available for local artists and crafters to utilize free of charge, along Bridge Street

Regal Cinemas updating technology, getting facelift PLATTSBURGH — Renovations to the Regal Cinemas are well under way. The eight-theater cinema complex at Champlain Centre on Smithfield Boulevard is currently closed as it undergoes a transformation that will convert the theaters to a state-of-the-art facility, expected to be on par with those found in much larger metropolitan areas. Each auditorium will feature amenities such as stadium seating, new high-back rocking seats with retractable cup holders, and digital projection utilizing a level of resolution provided by less than 5 percent of theaters across the country. Particularly new to the Regal Cinemas complex, three of the eight screens will offer 3D films with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. The lobby, box office and concession areas will also be fully remodeled. An automated ticket kiosk will also be added to increase customer convenience and reduce waiting times. The project is being completed by Large Theater Construction Inc., headquartered in Bensalem, Pa., a company who specializes in theater construction. LTCI is utilizing a number of local sub-contractors for electric, plumbing, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning work as well as tile, trash, and sprinkler services. The work is scheduled to be finished by December.

Working to eradicate ALS By Sarah L. Cronk PORT KENT — While many people think of cancer as the current epidemic, Darlene Long believes it’s actually motor neuron diseases. Darlene’s husband, Roger, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease in May 2009. Since his diagnosis he is now in a wheelchair, with severe weakness in his arms and hands. Darlene has been doing a lot of research about ALS, coming across some interesting findings. While typically only one person for every 100,000 get ALS, Darlene has noticed the numbers are much higher in Clinton County, and parts of Essex County. “There’s a lady that we met who is the eastern coast representative for the ALS [Association],” Darlene said. “She definitely said they know there’s a pocket here, they just don’t know why.” However, Darlene has learned

Dartmouth University will be doing a study to check out the water basin. “They think that there may be a bacteria that’s found along our lake,” she said. “That same bacteria is found in Guam, where five percent of the world’s cases are.” As Darlene has learned more information about ALS, she has also searched for specific cases in the area, coming across 25 people who have died from it since the 1980s. “But, the bulk of the names, the majority of them, probably threequarters, are from 2001, on,” she said. “So, this last decade has seen the most of them.” Darlene also came across some interesting information on medical shows, which state motor neuron diseases will actually become the epidemic of the 21st century. “Cancer was considered the epidemic of the last century, the 1900s,” she explained. “We’ve seen enough medical shows … they figure they’re going to have it beat by 2016. They are so close with being able to eliminate it.”

The new epidemic of motor neuron diseases include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer ’s, Frontal Lobe Dementia, and ALS. The biggest issue in finding a cure for those diseases is there are so many unknowns, including how and why it starts. However, the ALS Therapy Development Institute is working on getting the answers and finding a cure. This Saturday, Aug. 28, Darlene has planned a golf tournament to help raise money for the nonprofit research organization. “It takes $3 billion to get a new drug to market,” she explained. “From the time that you go down the cellular level with the disease and you go through clinical trials, come up with the medication, and get it to market.” Although Darlene said the tournament could have been used to benefit only Roger, she instead took in the bigger picture. “There’s a lot of events to raise money for particular people,” she said. “But, the bigger picture is we

need money to fight the disease.” The tournament has already received enough teams, however, people can still come and support the fundraising efforts. From 12 to 2 p.m., music will be provided for entertainment at the Harmony Golf Club in Port Kent. There will also be a plaque at the tournament with the names of the 25 people in the area who have died from ALS. There is enough space for 40 names, and it is Darlene’s goal to have some answers and a treatment before reaching 40 people. “The reality is it could happen to anyone. Any family,” said Darlene. “I think until we find some answers, every single one of us could be impacted by this disease.” For more information about ALS research, visit For more information about the tournament, contact Darlene at 6430808. To make a monetary donation, checks may be made payable to ADKYP and mailed to Darlene at 976 Fuller Road, Peru, N.Y. 12972.

Polo match slated for Labor Day Weekend WESTPORT — The Adirondack Polo Club, 1040 Stevenson Road, will host a match Saturday, Sept. 4, to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Burlington. The match will pit the Adirondack and Sugarbush teams against one another beginning at 1 p.m. Tailgaters are welcome at 12 p.m. and are encouraged to bring a chair.

Peru native returns to unit less than one year after helicopter crash By Trish Muntean Special to Denton Publications FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska — Less than a year after a helicopter crash in Iraq that left one soldier dead and several others, including himself, critically injured, Sgt. Justin LaFountain has returned to his unit. “It’s awesome to be back at work,” said the Peru native, who serves with A Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Aviation Regiment, 16th Combat Aviation Brigade. The incident happened Sept. 19, 2009, in Balad, Iraq, when the Black Hawk helicopter he was riding in was returning to base in bad weather. The crash, LaFountain recalled, happened during the landing. They were flying about 100 to 150 feet above the ground at a “pretty good clip,” he said. LaFountain said he was in the back, watching what he thought was heat lightning, and remembered thinking “Oh, we got this, we are gonna make that.” When they got closer he said he “started to feel uncomfortable. A couple of seconds later...” The details get a little fuzzy after that. LaFountain remembers the left side of the aircraft came to the ground first. He remembers seeing some sparks and hearing a metal scraping noise. “It was all really pretty quick. We kind of bounced and came back up,” LaFountain said. “I thought ‘go-around’... Go-arounds are free as we say.” “Then the right side of the aircraft hit,” LaFountain said. “I remember the starting of the rolling action, the dynamic, and one second later I lost consciousness. I believe it is because my head contacted the ceiling of the aircraft. I don’t know.” “My next memories were of waking up and seeing a dust cloud around me. At that point it really wasn’t coming to me. I was having the impression that I was having a bad dream,” he continued. When he came to again, he remembered being triaged by a female medic on the accident site. He had no idea of the extent of his injuries and told her to go over and help the others who were on the aircraft. He told her they needed her and all he needed was some Icy-Hot for his back. He would come to find out that he needed more than Icy-Hot. LaFountain was treated at Balad Hospital

that night and medically evacuated to the U.S. Army Hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, the next day. He recalled joking with the captain who was putting him on the aircraft that “only in the Army would I be in a Black Hawk crash last night and today you would put me on another aircraft.” LaFountain was at Landstuhl for only a day before being put on another aircraft and sent to Walter Reed Army Medical Center [in Washington, D.C.], where he was met by his father and his grandmother. His wife, Raechel, arrived a few days later. LaFountain spent the next several weeks at Walter Reed undergoing surgery and physical therapy. He was treated for a burst fracture in the L-5 vertebrae, a skull fracture, a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury and a corneal abrasion on his left eye. “It wasn’t until I got into physical therapy that I really started nailing down details. I had my surgery on a Thursday afternoon; on Friday morning my physical therapist and occupational therapist came in, they were amazed,” said LaFountain, referring to when he could stand up using a walker and stand on one leg and then the next. LaFountain remembers being disappointed they wouldn’t let him try to walk but that just that little bit of movement “took a lot out of me,” he said. He still didn’t understand their excitement when the next day he walked to the door and back. “What’s the big deal, I am supposed to be able to walk,” he said, recalling a conversation with his physical therapist, after becoming an outpatient. “I don’t understand what you guys are so excited about, I’m up, I’m walking. This is what people do, this is what soldiers do.” It was then he finally understood the extent of his injuries. “She told me ‘No, I don’t think you understand. On paper you look a lot worse than you do in person. They didn’t expect you to walk again. Your spinal canal is 60 percent compromised and with the loss of feeling that you have in your legs, it wasn’t looking good,’” he recalled. LaFountain was released from the Walter Reed Warrior Transition Battalion in early December and returned to Alaska where he was attached to B Company Warrior Transition Battalion. He continued to heal, qualified and competed in the inaugural Warrior Games in May at the

U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., along with Sgt. Allen Marley, also from Fort Wainwright’s WTB, who won a silver medal in the air pistol contest. “It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Being able to go to the training center and live and train there for a week. It is something most anyone in the world would want to be able to experience and I got to do that,” LaFountain said. “Being able to participate in the first Warrior Games was extremely inspiring. One of the best parts of these games is showing soldiers that they still have the opportunity to do things that they loved to do before.” LaFountain, a platoon sergeant and crew chief, returned to work June 1. “Before I was a squad leader and before I got injured I was an assistant platoon sergeant. I’m doing my job,” LaFountain said. “I don’t get up so much on aircraft, fixing as I did before, because I have other responsibilities. I managed to receive a temporary up slip so that I can fly. We are waiting for word back from Fort Rucker...” about the permanent clearance.” “I’ve had two flights so far,” LaFountain said. “It was good.” He said it wasn’t scary getting back on a helicopter, but it was exciting. “It came back amazingly well, it was like second nature. The unit has always supported me.

August 28 - September 3, 2010

I kept in contact with them while I was in Walter Reed,” LaFountain said. “They would send me e-mails. It was a good morale booster. I would send pictures. They would print them and post them.” His goal was always to come back to his unit, but he had to sell the idea to his platoon sergeant, his first sergeant and commander who had their doubts because of his injuries. “To me, it never really entered my mind, hey I am not going to walk again or hey I am not going to fly again,” LaFountain said. “Once the accident happened, the morale of the company went down, but he stepped up,” said 1st Sgt. Gary Sanders, A/1-52nd, 16th CAB. “He sent us a picture of him standing up, on a walker, moving around. As soon as we posted that, morale of the troops went straight through the roof.” “He won’t take credit, he won’t say ‘I did something’, but he did,” Sanders said. “He said, ‘Look team; I’m still here in the fight. I am trying to get back in the fight.’ He inspired us.” Needless to say, things are looking up for LaFountain. “It’s good to be home,” he said.

Botany professor, students cultivate bountiful awards PLATTSBURGH — Dr. Chris Martine and his students at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh are producing national recognition for outstanding work within the botany program. The associate professor of biological sciences was one of only two faculty worldwide to receive this year ’s Charles Edwin Bessey Teaching Award from the Botanical Society of America. Martine is the first faculty member from SUNY to receive this honor. “Dr. Bessey was renowned for developing botanical education in the United States,” said interim provost and vice president for academic affairs Patricia Higgins. “It is, therefore, fitting that Dr. Martine should be one of this year ’s recipients of this award. His passion for and skills as a scholar of botany are commendable.” Martine’s accomplishments also extend to the achievements of his students. This year, out of the six students chosen for the Botanical Society of America’s

Undergraduate Research Awards, three were SUNY Plattsburgh students working under Martine. They were Alex Scharf, an environmental studies major cultivating and studying a rare eggplant co-discovered by Martine; Sasha Dow-Kitson, a biology major who is studying an invasive species of European frogbit; and Elizabeth “Betty” Lavoie, a co-discoverer of a second eggplant species, who is working to analyze its DNA. Lavoie and Jillian Post, a senior environmental science major, were named Young Botanists of the Year, the third year in a row that SUNY Plattsburgh students have been recognized by the Botanical Society of America. Only 15 to 25 outstanding undergraduate students are bestowed this award annually from North America. Videos of Martine’s students discussing their work are available for viewing at and

Airborne Speedway puts bounty on Roy — then rains out SOUTH PLATTSBURGH — Airborne Speedway promoter Mike Perrotte posted a $250 bonus for any Ernie’s Discount Tools Modified competitor that could end defending track champion Martin Roy’s win streak, but rain forced postponement of the night’s racing Aug. 21. The bounty will carry over to the “topless” Modified card this Saturday, Aug. 28. All Modified roofs are removed to replicate the early era of open-wheel stock car racing and the Modifieds’ sprint car roots. Roy has won the last three races including a Tri-Track Series 100 event. He has six victories in all this season, tops in the division. He is second in the championship point standings, trailing only Patrick Dupree of Saranac Lake. Dupree surely found the bounty offer interesting. He has five wins this year himself and has finished second to Roy

The Very First Labor Day • September 5, 1882 If you could create a holiday, what would it be called? What date would you choose for your holiday? Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too. With four long months between Independence Day and Thanksgiving, Peter suggested a month halfwaya in between. The very first Labor Day was held on a Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. The day was celebrated with a picnic, concert and speeches. Ten thousand workers marched in a parade from City Hall to Union Square. Soon after that first celebration, the holiday was moved to the first Monday in September, the day we still honor. Congress passed legislation making Labor Day a national holiday in 1894.

Health & Fitness 2 0 1 0 Five easy ways to create an active and healthier lifestyle

Outside of the economy, fitness and healthy eating are among the most critical issues facing Americans today. Only 31 percent of Americans are getting adequate exercise and 68 percent of men and 53 percent of women are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health Interview survey released in March. The good news is that the tried-and-true approach of regular exercise and smart nutrition will go a long way toward managing weight loss and an overall healthy lifestyle. In fact, the benefits of being more active can be seen within a short time after starting a new routine and include more energy, less stress, lower blood pressure, improved digestive health and a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk.

When you add in smart nutritional choices to your exercise routine, the positives pile

up further. “As a triathlete and a sports dietitian, I can tell you that plenty of healthy choices are convenient and taste delicious,” says registered dietician Dr. KatherineBeals.

So, whether you aspire to overhaul your diet and exercise program or are just thinking about taking a few first steps to a healthier life, smart choices can start with a few simple steps. Abbs and Dr. Beals offer these tips for getting started on achieving overall better health. 1. Get and stay active: Adults should get 2.5 hours of aerobic physical activity per week and perform strengthening activities two days a week, according to the U.S. Health and Human Services department. Fortunately, it is easier than you might think to incorporate exercise into your routine. For example, take the stairs instead of the elevator and find the parking spot that is farthest away to get extra steps

in between your car and your destination. Play tag with your kids, or consider signing up for a community fun run 5K. Not only do these runs usually provide an opportunity to race for a good cause, you can use it as training motivation. 2. Use interval training: Experts say varying your cardio work with a combination of easy/hard intervals will result in faster fitness gains. It also mixes up your workouts and staves off boredom. Next time you go for a run, instead of keeping the same pace, try mixing in a few sprints. Start with 30 seconds on hard and 10 seconds on easy. 3. Go for convenience: Abbs says dried fruits like Sunsweet Ones, individually wrapped prunes, are a convenient and nutritious snack whether you’re training for a marathon or just a busy person on the go. “These delicious snacks are portable, don’t spoil and deliver calories that count.” Plus,

prunes are known to support digestive health. 4. Fill up with fiber: High-fiber foods are critical to digestive health and any weight loss program because they fill you up and help keep the hunger pangs at bay. The typical American eats only about 11 grams of fiber a day, according to the American Dietetic Association, and health experts recommend a minimum of 20 to 30 grams of fiber a day for most people. Fruits (dried and fresh) and vegetables are great fiber sources including apples, pears, prunes, peas, broccoli and sweet corn. 5. After an intense workout: Carbohydraterich foods that are energy dense, easy to digest and familiar and appetizing - like bagels, granola bars, crackers, dried plums and fruit juices - are good choices for postworkout fare to replenish any lost nutrients. Exercise also increases the loss of water from the body, primarily through sweat, so the harder and longer the workout, the more lost fluid that needs replacing. “Drinking fluids like water, sports drinks, and fruit juices or eating water-containing foods can replace these lost fluids and, in the case of fruits, fruit juices and vegetables, replace much-needed potassium,” Dr. Beals says.

Bringing music to the community

Pianist Adrian Carr discusses connection between music and brain development By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — Throughout the years, pianist Adrian Carr has come to notice the benefits of music in a person’s life. Now, he’s taking what he knows about music and extending it to the community. On Wednesday, Sept. 1, Carr will host an open house at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, 23 Brinkerhoff St., from 3:30-6 p.m. The plan is for people to come in and see what he will begin offering at the center. “I’m doing piano lessons, but also ‘Everything Music,’ which is kind of like a music exposure and appreciation class for young people, as well as the North Country Music Club, which is for adults in the evening,” Carr explained. Carr said his intention for the two classes is to “bring music into the community” by using a variety of techniques. “It’s been generally shown in several studies that classical music really helps the brain develop, and for kids this is really wonderful,” Carr explained. “I’ve noticed there is a real connection between kids after they’re starting to learn piano and get involved in music.” According to Carr ’s Web site,, there are 12 benefits of music education. From brain development in language and reasoning, to enhancing teamwork skills and discipline, Carr sees music as a “wonderful experience” for people. To bring the experience to the community, Carr contacted NCCCA last spring and asked what they were doing about music at the center. “They said, ‘Well, we don’t have any plans yet,’” recalled Carr.

Explaining what he hoped to do, the center set up a room for him with a piano, as they wanted to encourage the music in the center as well. “As funding is getting more and more cut from public schools and the arts are just suffering, I find that there is a space opening up here,” Carr said. “This is where the North Country Cultural Center can really fill this space ... Not just in music, but in the art course they’re doing here and everything.” Every Wednesday, beginning Sept. 8, NCCCA will be a day of music, according to Carr. The Everything Music class, which will be held in the afternoons for children ages 5 and older, will help kids understand both classical and popular music. “What I want to do is make kids music literate,” Carr said. “So, that they’re not experts, but at least they know about music. “We’ll be designing the program kind of as we go,” he added. “Questions that they might have about music. Music that they might want to play. Topics that they might have questions about. It’s very much going to be an interactive kind of thing.” Carr is hoping to also bring in art instructors, so children can see the connection between music and art. For adults, the North Country Music Club will be held Wednesday evenings, with the focus on getting people to appreciate music. “It want it to be interactive,” Carr said. “Because I want it to be about them. Anything that I can do to help them appreciate music, help them understand something that they always wanted to know about, but just never asked, or were afraid to ask, or didn’t know who to ask.” For more information about the open house, e-mail Carr at or call NCCCA at 563-1604.

Renal center in the running to bring award-winning ‘Chef O’ to town By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — CVPH Medical Center ’s H. K. Freedman Renal Center needs votes from the community to prove they have exceptional performance. Of all the kidney dialysis units across the nation, the renal center is one of only 19 centers to be in the running to have chef Oliver Hale cook for patients receiving dialysis. More commonly known as “Chef O,” the award-winning television host from Grand Rapids, Mich., is a dialysis patient himself, and has spent many years working to enhance life through cooking health foods in order to reduce health risks. Chef O teamed up with Baxter Healthcare, a company which specializes in making dia-

lyzers, to see which dialysis units in the nation had exceptional performance. Registered dietician Tara Sherman knew KDU was up for the challenge. “I got this poster and it just said, ‘Do you have exceptional performance in your unit?’ And, I thought, ‘Well of course we do!’” laughed Sherman. Since becoming the dietician for KDU two years ago, Sherman said she has made it her goal to create fun and exciting ways for patients to understand the importance of a proper diet. “My little pet project here, I have this education cart that I wheel down the unit, and it’s a fun way to educate the patients,” explained Sherman. “So, I kind of featured that cart and just talked about how, as a unit, it changed things.”

From left, registered nurses Carmen Lucia, Pattie Kinsman, Krrynne Vincent, along with certified tech Holly Ouimette, and registered dietician Tara Sherman stand with the Education Cart used to help dialysis patients understand the benefits of proper health. Photo by Sarah L. Cronk

A PowerPoint project was created to showcase what exceptional performance meant to the renal center and how it can be seen throughout the unit. “Education needs to change every day,” states the PowerPoint. Sherman uses the education cart to meet that goal, using hands-on education tools, instead of lecturing. “The way they were being educated was boring,” Sherman said. “It not only changed the way we educate, but it helps morale.” If the center were to win the challenge, receiving the most votes by the end of August,

Chef O would come to the unit for two days, providing cooking demonstrations with a dialysis-friendly menu. “There’s a whole slew of things [dialysis patients] can’t eat,” explained Sherman. “It’s very tricky for them to come up with fun, flavorful recipes. Currently, the center is not in the top five contestants, but Sherman is still hoping people will vote and show their support. To do so, visit and search for the H. K. Freedman Renal Center. Voting will be held through the end of Aug. 31.

Locals invited to get in on Locavore food challenge By Sarah L. Cronk ROCHESTER — Think you can eat only fresh, local, in season and organic foods for a day? A week? A month? The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York Inc. is challenging people in the state to put their money where their mouth is. According to their Web site,, NOFA-NY “is an organization of consumers, gardeners, and farmers working together to create a sustainable regional food system which is ecologically sound and economically viable.” One step in doing this is through the NY Locavore Challenge. “The idea is to get as many people across New York State ... to [show] the commitment to eating local and eating organic food,” explained NOFA-NY assistant direc-

tor Lea Kone. “At the same time, raising money for the growth of organic farms and small farms in New York State.” The challenge will take place throughout the month of September, but people can choose when they want to begin. “The challenge is set up as three different challenges — a day, a week, or a month,” said Kone. “The reason we did that was just to get

people started in eating locally. Some people, it’s their way of life and they eat exclusively locally all the time. Some people, they have no idea that bananas aren’t local.” “Introducing people who are maybe new to the movement and getting more people involved and interested and thinking about where their food comes from,” she added. The main rule of the challenge is all foods consumed must be produced locally and sustainably. According to the Web site, NOFA-NY is defining “local” as being produced within 250 miles, although they are hoping challengers will aim for a 100-mile radius. “Sustainably” is “food that is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, hormones and antibiotics. Sustainable food is grown naturally, with crops grown using systems like crop rotations and cover crop-

ping and animals raised humanely and healthfully.” However, there are a few exceptions to the rules. “We don’t want to be so stringent that people are even more daunted and afraid of it,” said Kone. “Not everything has to be certified organic. It can be from sustainable farms and food businesses that are growing organically.” The challenge will also allow a maximum of five wild card items, which are items a person just can’t live without, such as coffee or chocolate. “For those, we are encouraging people to use organic and Fair Trade products,” Kone explained. The challenge will also exempt salt, spices and seasonings from having to be local. To help stay on track with the challenge, Kone said the organization is encouraging people to blog about their experiences on the Web site. The organization will also

August 28 - September 3, 2010

send out surveys to collect data on how people did. “Information on how people source their food, what they had challenges finding, what they would have liked to have done,” explained Kone. “Just to collect some anecdotal information at the end of it that will also be beneficial to us in terms of talking to farmers and identifying opportunities for new market development.” To sign up for the NY Locavore Challenge, visit A day challenge is $7, a week challenge is $15, and a month challenge is $45. Those who sign up will receive prizes based on how long they took the challenge for. “The more people who take this challenge, it’s a very clear, direct message to the legislatures, people involved, that this is an issue that people care about,” Kone said. “The power of numbers always speaks very loudly.”

By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — When House On A Spring makes some noise, it's one that has a blend of reggae, hip-hop and a lot rhythm. The Oswego-based party band has been performing since 2006, formed by keyboardist Josh Russell and guitarist Matt Brown. The band came together in a basement later dubbed the “house on a spring” because of the large influx of people and sounds resonating from within, said Brown. The band consists today of Brown, Russell, and seven other members. Rob Dee is on vocals and percussion, Liam Shaughnessy plays drums, Chris “Bonky” Beattie plays bass and Steve Ernye also plays guitar. Andrew Chapman plays sax and percussion, Steve Burt is on trombone and percussion and Harrison Noel brings his talents to the soundboard and dubbing. “House On A Spring is original, conscious American roots reggae, dub, and hip-hop,” explained Brown. “We draw influence from an array of musical outlets including anything from local and international reggae

and jam bands to old school funk, jazz and blues, even as far as the punk and ska scene.” The band is in what Brown calls “somewhat of a hot-bed for reggae music” in the Ithaca, Rochester and Syracuse area, drawing heavy influence from the many bands involved in their local music scene. House On A Spring is currently putting the finishing touches on its debut, fulllength album“We Gonna Break Free.” When it’s released, the album will give people a taste of what they can enjoy when they see the band in person, said Russell. “Reggae is a very accessible form of music that many people can relate to and enjoy,” he said. “Our take on the genre offers a versatility of constantly changing and fresh live performances.” The summer has also been busy for the band, with House On A Spring playing several music festivals across the state including the Upstate Boogie Music Festival in Warsaw. “This fall we are committing to more of a full-time schedule and playing throughout the Northeast,” said Brown, who noted per-
