Weibr echt claims br onze in Super -G Locals laud homegrown Olympic skier By Matt Bosley WHISTLER, British Columbia — Andrew Weibrecht added himself to the ever-growing list of local athletes who have stood on an Olympic podium Feb. 19, earning bronze in the men’s Super-G competition. The Lake Placid native skied to a single run time of 1:30.65 to finish third in the event, one of several he’s competing in as part of the U.S. men’s alpine ski team. Weibrecht, whose parents, Ed and Lisa, op-

erate the Mirror Lake Inn in Lake Placid, has been skiing since the age of five at Whiteface and began racing with the New York Ski Educational Foundation (NYSEF) program by the time he was 10. Now 24, he has been on the World Cup circuit since 2006, but never finished higher than 10th. This was his is his first Olympic Winter Games. “This is a tremendous accomplishment for Andrew,” said Weibrecht’s NYSEF coach Horst Weber. “From day one, Andrew showed great promise as a ski racer and today everyone in our program should feel proud to be a part of what he was able to achieve.” Fellow American Bode Miller, a Franconia, N.H., native in his fourth Olympics, won the race’s silver medal in a time of 1:30.62, while Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal won the race with a time of 1:30.34. Miller ’s silver was the second of three medals he’s won at the 2010 games thus far, making five total olympic medals for his career.

Classic Film Festival UNYTEA dissatisfied with Congressman Owens features old comedies SARANAC LAKE — The Saranac Lake Cabin Fever Classic Film Festival will return for its ninth year with "Shorts in March!" a month-long celebration of old serials and short comedies, starting Wednesday, March 3 at 7 p.m. and continuing each Wednesday night throughout the month at the Saranac Laboratory on Church Street. Sponsored by the Saranac Lake Arts Committee and the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks, the Cabin Fever Classic Film Festival features classic American comedies and dramas made between 1930 and 1975 (in all their 16mm glory) accompanied by cartoons or comedy shorts from the same era. Each night will present installments of the 1932 serial "Heroes of the West," a 12-part saga that follows the exploits of brave pioneers battling Indians, bad guys and Mother Nature to build the Transcontinental Railroad across the lawless prairies of Wyoming. Surrounding each episode will be a stampede of comedy shorts and cartoons featuring the hilarious antics of Laurel & Hardy, the Little Rascals, the Three Stooges, W.C. Fields, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Ben Turpin, Popeye, Donald Duck, Woody Woodpecker and Bugs Bunny. Tickets for each night's films are $6 for general admission, $5 for seniors and students, and will be available only at the door, starting at 6:30 p.m. The Saranac Laboratory, also known as the Trudeau Laboratory, is located at 89 Church Street. The 2010 Cabin Fever Classic Film Festival is being sponsored by Cape Air, provider of passenger air service to and from the Adirondack Airport. Special thanks are also extended to Compass Printing Plus of Saranac Lake for their help with printing posters and programs. For more information on the Cabin Fever Classic Film Festival, call Tim Fortune at 891-1139.

PLATTSBURGH — The Upstate New York Tea Party is steaming mad about the spending habits of newly elected Rep. Bill Owens, D–Plattsburgh. During a press conference in Plattsburgh Feb. 12, UNYTEA chairman Mark L. Barie said Owens has voted for a series of bills, which, if enacted, would add more than $1 trillion to the nation’s deficit. “Since he first took office, Mr. Owens has yet to meet a big spending bill he didn’t like,” said Barie. Barie opened his comments with a quotation from President Abraham Lincoln who said, “You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.” Barie went on to say Owens is either unwilling or unable to follow President Lincoln’s advice. UNYTEA selected only a handful of his roll call votes and discovered after only 98 days in office, Owens had voted to spend more than $1 trillion. “That translates to almost $8 million for every minute of every hour of every day, since Mr. Owens took the oath of office on Nov. 6th,” said Barie, whose remarks were made during the event which unveiled UNYTEA’s new Web site. The Web site,, now includes a large black button called “Bill’s bill.” After clicking on it, an online viewer will see an up-to-date tally of the cost to taxpayers for the legislation, which Owens supported.

UNYTEA chairman Mark Barie addresses the audience at a conference held Feb. 12. Barie and others criticized Congressman Bill Owens for what they say are bad spending policies. UNYTEA also distributed written materials which cited Congressional Budget Office estimates for just six pieces of legislation, all of which Owens supported. The bills included, among other things, the Affordable Health Care Act, at a cost of $894 billion.

Barie, a long-time friend and business ally of Owens, made no effort to disguise his disappointment. He pointed out Owens first supported a series of budget-busting bills and then used a parliamentary procedure to vote against a motion to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. Stating as an example of Owens’ disturbing voting record, Barie used House Resolution 4173, supported by Owens and written by Barney Frank, that would make the bailout policies used for AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, General Motors and Chrysler permanent. “The cost of that new law will probably never be fully known,” Barie said. Barie also claims the legislation will benefit the American Bar Association, as it restricts the use of arbitration to settle disputes arising from U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regulations, thus forcing investors to seek more expensive legal counsel. “Despite his record,” noted Barie, “Mr. Owens wants you to think that he is a fiscal conservative ... but his voting record is crystal clear. He has joined the ranks of the tax and spend liberals from both parties who in the last decade or so have brought our nation to the brink of financial disaster.” “Some people have accused members of Congress of spending money like drunken sailors,” he added, “but

SATURDAY February 27, 2010


There are 216 U.S. athletes competing in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Among them:

From page 1 “What a great day for Andrew and his whole family,” noted New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority chairman Joe Martens. “Of course this is a huge day for him and his family, but it’s also a remarkable day for ORDA and Lake Placid. Andrew’s an extraordinary person and athlete.” The U.S. team had previously won only one Olympic medal in men’s Super-G: a silver medal won by Tommy Moe during the 1994 winter games in Lillehammer, Norway. The two medals by Miller and Weibrecht triple the U.S. total in the Super-G and gives the U.S. alpine ski team eight 2010 Olympic medals as of Feb. 21. North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi moved for a resolution of congratulations to Weibrecht, which was unanimously seconded by the Essex County Ways and Means committee Feb. 22. “It’s gratifying to have someone like Andrew grow up on the slopes of Whiteface and become an Olympic medalist.,” said ORDA president/CEO Ted Blazer. “Andrew is an incredibly hard-working athlete who has never given up and all of us are extremely proud of him.”

UNYTEA From page 1 that’s an insult to sailors because sailors spend their own money ... and these are taxpayers’ dollars.” Barie invited North Country residents who are “sick and tired of picking up the tab for big spending politicians” to join the UNYTEA coalition. He pointed out UNYTEA is not a political party, nor does it align itself with either Republicans or Democrats. The main focus of the group is to lower taxes, control government spending and government

growth. Barie also reported all four candidates for the Republican nomination to run against Owens in November 2010 have agreed to appear at a candidates forum, hosted by UNYTEA. The forum is scheduled to take place in late March. “UNYTEA will play a significant role in the November elections,” predicted Barie. “Our goal is to elect a congressman who understands the need for less spending and lower taxes.” When reached for comment, Sean Magers, a representative from Owens’ of-

fice, said much of Barie’s information is “factually incorrect.” In reference to House Resolution 4173 and Barie’s allegation it will bailout corporations like AIG, Magers said that’s not the case. “This bill would do the exact opposite, and this statement is 100 percent false,” Magers said in a statement. “It holds Wall Street and big banks accountable for creating the mess we’re in by ending the practice of ‘Too Big To Fail; and by creating new procedures to unwind failing companies — paid for by the financial industry

and not the taxpayer.” Seven of the major annual spending bills Congress approves annually were done so before Owens took office, added Magers. When asked about Barie’s condemnation of Owens’ voting record, Magers questioned what Barie considers to be bad spending. “I’m interested as to what bills Barie’s using in this equation,” stated Magers. “Is all spending bad? Funding for fire departments? Pay raise for troops? Body armor for Fort Drum soldiers?”

Are girls becoming more violent?


ecently, a rather disturbing video was shown on the national news. The video clip depicts two girls fighting at a Seattle Bus Tunnel. A young girl, reported to be fifteen years old, rushes from out of the picture and hurls herself into another young girl. A slugfest ensues and eventually the larger of the two pummels the other. As the vanquished girl is lying on the cement sidewalk, the larger girl kicks her in the head several times; the helpless victim can do nothing to protect herself. Though the subdued girl is clearly defenseless, the attacker leaves and then returns to kick the defenseless girl in the face. These events occurred uninterrupted by any of the many bystanders including three nearby, uniformed security officers. The immediate question that comes to mind is why didn’t anyone try to come between the two girls as they hit each other repeatedly? Why did no one come to the aid of a defenseless girl being repeatedly kicked in the head? What about the attacker? She attacked her victim with three security officers in plain sight; how could she be so sure that they would not intervene? Growing up I witnessed fights and was involved in a few myself, and a few unspoken rules were observed. If someone bested the other person and they were down, you did not kick them in the face and head while they were defenseless or had conceded their defeat. Have our cultural values changed so much that this sort of vicious behavior is okay? Or, is this the behavior of a young girl with tremendous aggression and behavior that is very abnormal? I suspect the latter is true. Some have taken the position that girls are becoming more violent. What is being offered as proof of increased violence among girls is in my opinion, incomplete or at the very least short-sighted. The U.S. Justice Department’s Uniform Crime Reports between 1992-2006 demonstrate

that violence among girls increased by 41 percent. During that same period of time, violence among boys increased by 4.3 percent. One thread of reasoning is that women are becoming more “man like.” They are becoming our highest performing students, they are becoming more prominent in the world of sports, they are becoming more prominent in the political realm By Scot Hurlburt and are increasingly the CEO’s at Fortune 500 companies and not just the secretary. Do these changes necessarily mean that women are destined to follow men’s more aggressive and violent path? I believe that this is yet to be determined. The perceived changes in aggressive behaviors among girls should be closely monitored. If it is determined that these changes are advancing then we should intervene to address those changes. Girl aggression is still more dominated by exclusion behaviors, verbal insults and an array of psychological warfare tactics. Most girls are not physically assaulting each other. While the Seattle video raises many concerns, I believe that girl-on-girl violence is not the first priority. Finding out why no one helped a defenseless girl who was savagely beaten in the sight of many should be our first priority. Remember all kids count.

Concert will benefit Kenyan school SARANAC LAKE — The Second Annual Concert for Jambo Jipya will be held Saturday, March 6, 7 p.m. at the Saranac Lake High School auditorium. This year’s event will again support the Jambo Jipya School in Mtwapa, Kenya. It is sponsored by the non-profit foundation, Reason2Smile, and the Saranac Lake Central School District. College acapella groups from the University of Vermont and Colgate University will again perform. Last year’s audience was treated to the sounds of the women of Colgate, The Swinging ‘Gates, who will be joined this year by their male counterparts, the Colgate 13. UVM’s TopCats will also return this year to charm concertgoers once again. Saranac Lake will be well-represented by the SLHS Jazz Band as well as the Men’s and Women’s Ensembles. Rounding out the first half of the night will be the percussive sounds of Waluba Drumming and dancing of the members of Somabeats. The sec-

ond half of the performance will showcase the three college acapella groups. Keela Dates, founder and Executive Director of Reason2Smile, has recently returned from Kenya, bringing a large number of unique Kenyan crafts to sell at the Marketplace. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with the Marketplace goods available then, as well as during intermission. In addition to Kenyan wire toys and jewelry, there will be original artwork by nationally known local artist Nip Rogers and the SLHS art classes. There will be a silent auction for a handmade quilt and rounding out the Marketplace offerings will be the well-known Jambo Jipya Totes, made of recycled upholstery and wool fabrics. Admission prices are $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and $15 for a family. Keela Dates will present the most recent news about Jambo Jipya. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Jambo Jipya School.
