Elect ‘Ike’ Tyler for Essex County Sheriff To the editor, Michael “Ike” Tyler understands the urgency of reducing the Essex County Jail debt, without compromising the safety of his constituents. As a correction officer, Ike has worked in some of the state’s most challenging and difficult criminal justice systems, i.e., Dannemora, Sing Sing, and Great Meadow. Ike Tyler ’s depth of experience offers voters an opportunity this November to elect him as Essex County Sheriff. Michael “Ike” Tyler has studied the Essex County Jail budget and believes he can reduce the escalating costs associated with running a big business. He states he can do this by cutting unnecessary spending and initiating programs that reduce recidivism and generate revenue. He believes housing federal prisoners as a competitive rate will increase revenue. However, at the same time, he is concerned for the safety of all employees and feels strongly about providing appropriate training of staff. Ike understands the relationship of criminal behavior and mental health disorders. He has seen first hand how effective programs can reduce recidivism rates of the inmate population. For several years, Ike served as a correction officer at Moriah shock, where he directed a comprehensive recovery program for inmates. This involved a boot camp training in which non-violent criminals participated in a vigorous treatment regimen, which addressed medical, mental and work related disorders. Additionally, Ike is aware of the number of veterans serving time in our jails and prisons. He believes that non-violent veterans, whose lives have interfaced with the criminal justice system, are in need of rehabilitation and reintegration services. If elected, Essex County Sheriff, Ike states he will implement such program services and look for federal grant dollars to do so. Michael “Ike” Tyler is an experienced correction officer with an understanding and vision for addressing urgent issues related to safety and debt. On November 2nd, the voters of Essex County have an opportunity to elect Michael “Ike” Tyler, as Essex County Sheriff. Nancy Dawson Elizabethtown

Bullying, an act of child abuse and neglect O ctober is anti-bullying month and a variety of organizations are putting bullying in the national spotlight. Though no law currently defines bullying as child abuse or neglect, in my estimation, it is both. Bullying can be physically abusive and or emotionally abusive. Ostensibly, we accept that children will be physically and emotionally abused by other children as a part of growing up. I disagree with this belief and I would also add involved adults that turn a blind eye as bullying events occur are guilty of neglect. Every day in America, 160,000 children intentionally miss school out of fear they will be bullied according to National Education Association statistics. More than five million children are the victims of bullying annually according to a 2004 American Medical Association study. The same study revealed 66 percent of students believe schools respond poorly to bullying and believe adult help is infrequent and ineffective. Many studies suggest bullying not only affects the child’s emotional state, it also affects their academic performance and these effects can be long-lasting as bullied children have higher rates of serious depression as adults.

Banner money not stolen Since Malcolm Martin’s letter dated 10/23/2010 refers to “our government” and “the town hall” I assume that he’s accusing the Town Board of stealing $3,000. It’s a false accusation. It is true the Chamber of Commerce facilitated a plan to purchase power pole mounted banners for local business and obtained $3,000 from them. The plan stalled when they realized $2,000 more was needed to buy the mounting hardware and the Chamber had no way to install the banners on the poles. Supervisor Merrihew offered to seek grant money for both of these issues. The Supervisor worked with the Highway Dept. and NYSEG to arrange for the installation. The grant money was obtained and the plan moved forward. About $5,000 of grant money was received. About $2,000 was used to purchase the hardware. The balance of $3,000 will go towards the mountings of the banners for a few years. The invoice submitted to the Chamber was for tracking purposes which is required by the Comptrollers office to verify the grant money is being spent appropriately. No money was required from the Chamber, just verification that the expense occurred. $3,000 has not “disappeared.” No money has been “mishandled.” The grant money will be applied as it was intended and when its gone the Chamber will have to accept the responsibility for the expense. The local taxpayers should not have to pay for this service to our business community and the Town cannot be receiving or expending money on behalf of our business community. Ken Fenimore, Councilman Elizabethtown

Schools are under unprecedented scrutiny as it is By Scot Hurlburt perceived the American school system is failing. At the very least, putting schools under constant fire for failing performance may make bullying less important than it might be under ordinary circumstances. Though schools are not responsible for creating bullying, they must be the active agent that protects vulnerable children in the bullying storm. As in most endeavors that involve children, the entire community will need to coalesce around this issue. As increasing numbers of young people that are bullied take their own lives, parents are filing law suits against school districts for failing to protect their child from bullying. These law suits will not solve the bullying issue though they may serve as a wakeup call to schools and communities. It won’t be easy to protect children from bullying; however, it is a challenge that must be surmounted. Remember, all kids count. Scot Hurlburt may

Doheny for 23rd congressional district I first met Matt Doheny around a year and a half ago. Along with his obvious intelligence, energy and history of hard work, what most impressed me was his business background. He is a man who has rescued many companies over the past ten years that were on the edge of going out of business. Since it seems like Washington is trying to put us all out of business, I thought: “This is the perfect man to send to Congress for the challenge of his life.” With his law degree and business experience Matt can understand both what a Bill really says, and how it will affect business and your pocketbook and mine. We discussed several of the companies that he rescued; including the one Bill Owens likes to talk about in his commercials, Adelphia. Yes five hundred jobs were lost in that reorganization, but over thirteen thousand jobs were saved! That is a big plus in my opinion. Those 13,000 are still working, paying taxes and paying their mortgages. That is just one of the companies Matt saved from going out of business. I told Matt that I was certain Bill Owens would attack him personally. I told him Bill would exaggerate things, take things out of context and flat out lie. After all, when you voted for Obamacare (higher cost, poorer care) while supporting both Card Check (an unfair advantage for unions on votes) and Cap and Trade (a fancy name for a tax on all forms of energy) you certainly can’t run on your record in the 23rd. Oh yah, let’s not forget Bill Owens cast the deciding vote that let Congress go home and campaign before they voted on the Bush era tax cuts. When this Congress votes to eliminate them after the election — which they will — they will become the Obama tax increase, the largest tax increase in history. That will affect you and me as well as the rich. Thanks Bill, and good luck working as a lawyer next year. Ron Jackson, Chairman Essex County Republican Committee

Taxes too high? Know your culprit


ith many sectors of the economy just beginning to recover from the recent recession, what better time for our local government to invest in infrastructure that will not only save money but also assist the fight on global warming? There seems to be this mob mentality in recent months to “fight back” against taxes and government spending with an increasingly vocal TEA party effort leading the charge, but I would like to caution those who hope to hop on that bandwagon by deriding elected officials at all levels of government for what they see as little more than failure to keep taxes in check. The most striking example I’ll point to is at the local level. Essex County Manager Dan Palmer pointed out this week how roughly 94 percent of the county’s tax levy goes toward the net cost of programs mandated by the state of New York. The largest among these is Medicaid, which forces Essex County to raise more than $6 million for the program through the property tax. That in itself represents about 45 percent of the county’s tax levy. New York State is the only state that requires local governments to make up half of the Medicaid funding that’s not reimbursed by the federal government. Give this some real thought: would it be more fair to have these costs paid through property tax or through state income tax? If most homeowners analyze their property tax bills in recent years, they may realize much of the increases have occurred due to increased school district levies. Why do the schools continue to seek more through the property tax? It’s mainly because they’re getting ever-decreasing funding through

the state. As we saw this past year, many local schools cut spending and staffing drastically and still experienced an increase in their levies. Property By Matt Bosley taxes in many communities throughout New York State are still among the highest in the nation. If that is to change, it’s going to first require smarter decisions from our state legislature and governor. Still, even with a governor committed to fiscal responsibility, the budget process in New York has proven to be messy at best. Regardless of who you trust to enforce smarter spending as the state’s head executive, it may take a considerable overhaul to New York’s constitution to ever get a budget delivered on time.

trip around town showed several lawns getting their last hair cut and gardens being cleaned up — sure sign we are well into the fall weather. A great weather day last Saturday as a large crowd gathered on the town hall lawn for the dedication of the new town clock. This was given in memory of John Sheehan by family and friends. The clock can be seen from both sides and has nice clear numbers, a great gift. The auction was held this past week for the Mexican Restaurant; I understand there is now a new owner, members of the Sheehan family. We will wait to see how it will be developed. Another great program at our local school is the student/adult mentoring program, where interested community adults are paired up with juniors and seniors. They meet once a month and share ideas and plans for their future. The adult group also gets together to share ways to be of better assistance. This past week we had the pleasure of meeting with the Dalton’s and they invited us to the Essex Inn and gave us a tour, it is

going to be a great addition to the Essex community when it opens. Reminder of the importance of getting out to vote Nov. 2, every vote counts and is important. A reminder of the upcoming Veteran’s Day Appreciation Program and Dinner Nov. 11, with the program at 4:30 p.m., meal at 5:30 p.m. at no charge. Willsboro/Reber veterans are invited along with a guest to come to the Willsboro United Methodist Church. Reservations need to be in by Nov.4; call 963 7772 or 963 4375. Veterans that served stateside or overseas, peacetime or war time, are welcome. Another happy event as we announce the recent birth of McKenzie Rose Cain born Oct. 4, the daughter of Erica Carter and Robert Cain. Grandparents include Jayne and Rick Carter and Roberta Benway. Congratulations. Let’s hope we have a quiet and peaceful Halloween, fun and not destruction. Happy Birthday: Ethel French 10/30, Dennis Everleth 11/2, Peter Johnpeer 11/7.

ell it is Halloween time once again. I want to thank all the great people who have taken the time to decorate their houses, so many look really great and add a pleasant spook to the neighborhood, very much worth a stroll the village to see them all. On Halloween night from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. the people who live at 71 Liberty St. are hosting a free party for Keeseville. This is such a neat idea and to take it all on themselves to do is wonderful. Thank you so much. There will be free food, games and all sorts of family fun including a live performance by the band Silversyde, an alternative band hailing from Troy. You can check them out and hear some of their tunes on Myspace and Facebook. Should be a lot of fun. This is also the time to be extra watchful for children as the excitement of candy can make for rushing around in hard-


he family that hunts on our land got a couple of does during black powder season, which just ended. This family also cuts the hay here, and they know the place well. Ginny and I met them on a walk last week, coming back with a doe. The men in the party were a little subdued, but the one woman in the group, the patriarch’s flamboyant daughter, was all smiles. She was also successful last year in that she got a young buck. We’re starting to see cluster flies around the windows in our house. Cluster flies are annoying and distasteful, but not harmful. They do belong to the less-than-charming blowfly family, but don’t feed on carrion and don’t carry diseases. They are very hard to eradicate because they have the ability to slip through the tiniest openings in your house, and if your house is old like ours, the openings are not a problem for them. They come inside when the weather cools, and they are only looking for a dry place to hibernate. In the spring, they return to the outdoors, to lay eggs which grow into larvae

that parasitize earthworms. Cluster flies are not native to North America; they are European in origin and probably came over in sailing ships which were ballasted with soil that contained earthworms. Experts have not found any evidence that cluster flies harm worm populations. We found regular vacuuming reduces the numbers over time. We had a Brittany spaniel years ago who would eat them off windowsills, but Ginny isn’t that kind of girl. Those of you who come to the town hall on Fridays to see the town clerk generally won’t find her there. For the time being, and until property tax payments start coming in January, she’s at the town hall from Monday through Thursday. I know she takes work home that demands close attention, like transcribing meeting tapes into minutes. I’m sure she’d rather be at some elegant watering hole with her lady friends, eating cucumber sandwiches and drinking tea, but she in fact puts in a day’s work on Fridays, just not at the town hall.

er to see weather. Another great idea going on in our community comes from the Keeseville Church of the Nazarene. They are currently developing plans for a Festival of Trees at the Church for the beginning of December, which while still fairly far off isn’t that far away for planning and setting up. This will be the festivals first year and comes as a deliberate attempt to bring something unique to Keeseville as a tourist concept as well as give people a chance to see what the church is. To find out how to get involved in this festival contact he church at 834-9408. Finally the United Methodist Church in Keeseville is having a two church dinner on Saturday, Oct. 30 starting at 6 p.m. This is a wonderful chance to meet new people and have a wonderful meal. Enjoy the last week of October!


side from the EMS class I’ve been attending in Lewis, the other big thing in my life recently that readers might be interested in is the ACAP After School Program, where I resumed working this fall after a two-year hiatus. Coming back to WCS for a few hours each afternoon has been such a pleasure. I’ve had a chance to catch up on many old friendships and also to start a whole batch of new ones. We have a great group of kids, and now that the funding has been somewhat restored I hope enrollment will continue to creep back up to its old levels. Our site supervisor, Vera Martin, has organized regular bi-monthly field trips to the Pok-O-MacCready Outdoor Education Center in Willsboro, a place I knew about but didn’t really appreciate till now. What I’ve realized is the folks there really know how to show kids a good time, but in a way that’s all about growth and learning as well as fun. And the After School Program isn’t the only group in Westport taking advantage of

this nearby resource. The Youth Commission also knows a good thing when they see it. On Friday, Nov. 12, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Pok-O-MacCready will present a living history event about the Underground Railroad. “Experience what it was like to be a slave on the run in New York, trying to make it to freedom in Canada before being captured by bounty hunters. You’ll learn about famous abolitionists, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 and how to escape captors — all from the perspective of someone who was there.” The Westport Youth Commission will subsidize the cost of attendance for all Westport students and their families, bringing it down to $2 per person. As we come up on the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, this is a wonderful opportunity for your children to experience history as it was lived and made during a crucial period in our national past. Advance registration is required. To register, call Sheera Broderick at 962-4890 by Tuesday, Nov. 9.

his week the NCSPCA would like to give you a few tips on pet safety and Halloween. In the excitement of costumes and candy, we can sometimes forget the impact of all the activity on our pets’ well being. Here are a few tips from The constant activity of trick-or-treaters ringing the doorbell in your home and opening your door to smiling faces can be stressful to your pet. It’s a great idea to have a room set up for them and keep them behind closed doors during trick-or-treating hours. Don’t forget to include food, water, a toy or two and a litter box if needed. Concerning costumes for your pets, some animals are easygoing and don’t mind being dressed up; however if your pet seems uncomfortable or anxious, it’s kindest to avoid the costume. Remember to keep chocolates and sweets away from your pet as they can be toxic.

By Matt Bosley ESSEX — An Oct. 19 fire at 126 School St. has left one young family with little to call their own. Nathan King, Jennifer Fields and their 18month-old daughter, Reagan, lost their home and much of their belongings when fire ignited shortly before 5 p.m. in the second floor of the house they were renting from neighbor Gerald Benway. The couple, both local natives, are now looking to pick up the pieces as friends, family, and community members rush to their aid. “Basically, they have to start over,” said Tanya Welch, a friend of the family, noting how they were only able to save their child’s crib, a couch, and a television from the burning building. Essex Fire Department chief David Lansing said the fire mainly damaged the second floor, but smoke and water damage affected much of the rest of the house, making it uninhabitable. Neither Benway, King, or Fields could be reached to determine whether the house or the family’s belongings were covered by insurance. Willsboro and Westport firefighters provided mutual aid while the Keeseville Fire Department remained on standby. All de-

One firefighter hurt his foot while fighting the blaze, Lansing said, but no other injuries were reported. According to Lansing, the cause of the fire was still under investigation Oct. 25, but ini-

Budget From page 1 According to Palmer, the Board of Supervisors will have to either cut some non-mandated services or spend more than a third of their $18 million fund balance if they want to avoid raising the tax rate by as much as 30 percent. Palmer told the Ways and Means committee Oct. 25 his barebones tentative budget ignores spending beyond current services, but is still projected to move the tax rate from $2.02 per thousand to $2.57 per thousand. Initial requests from county departments put the total expenditures at about $28 million, but nearly $5 million of that has been removed in budget workshops, including some items, such as road equipment, that Palmer said will become a necessity in the near future. “We have gotten down as low as we can get without choosing to get rid of services and that is ultimately what it comes down to,” said Palmer. The county spent $7.4 million of its fund balance last year to keep the county tax levy at a near-level $13.5 million, which represented roughly what the county pays annually for its state-mandated services alone, Palmer said. “So we are starting from there, essentially, and any other costs that we have — hard costs, labor, wages, maintenance, — everything else is on top of that,” he said. Palmer said his budget assumes using another $7.4 million from fund balance to offset the levy, but warned against using too much of the current $18 million reserve as it could lead to financial problems down the line. Buying down the levy with fund balance year after year has helped consistently reduce

October 30, 2010

county taxes for most residents since 2004, Palmer said, even with increased assessments taken into account. “We have produced, over seven years, a lot of savings for county taxpayers,” said Palmer, “but it is now time to make a correction short of reducing services.” The tentative budget includes funding for some non-mandated services, such as the fish hatchery, certain agency contracts, and the Horace Nye Nursing Home. “So essentially, what I have come down to is those become policy decisions, and this board needs to decide for themselves whether they want those things in or out,” Palmer said. Moriah supervisor Tom Scozzafava, who chairs the finance committee, said he analyzed tax payments by county residents since 2004 and confirmed, in about 90 percent of cases, residents actual tax payments steadily decreased despite any raises in assessments. “That doesn’t necessarily mean I still support a 30 percent increase in the overall levy,” he said. “I am sure we are going to get into some discussion on fund balance when we have our workshops, so I will wait until that time.” The tentative budget is due by Nov. 15, and supervisors are required to have a final budget in place by early December. Board of Supervisors chairman Randy Douglas of Jay said he hopes to get union-repesented county employees to come back to the bargaining table to negotiate the four-percent raises contracted for the upcoming year. Doing so, he said, might prevent the county from resorting to layoffs. “The possibilty of layoffs is still there,” he said. “Franklin County is laying off 50 people, so it’s still there.”

ELIZABETHTOWN — Funds for a scholarship given in memory of a young nurse and ambulance driver are in danger of running dry. For more than 20 years, Elizabethtown Community Hospital has awarded an annual $500 scholarship in memory of Holly Estus, an Essex woman who died March 26, 1985 in a tragic car accident on her way home from working at the hospital. But according to ECH community relations director Jane Hooper, funds for the scholarship could soon run out unless the hospital can generate more donations. “Over the course of 20 years, they’ve certainly dwindled,” said Hooper, noting how funds are mostly drawn from the principal of the account. “Anything people can do to keep that going is very important to us.” Estus also spent many years as an EMT with the Essex Fire and Rescue Squad. Many employees who worked alongside Estus still work at the hospital, Hooper said, “so there’s still a group that’s very passionate about it.” Eligible applicants for the Holly Estus Memorial Scholarship must reside within the Elizabethtown, Keene, Moriah, Westport, Willsboro or AuSable Valley school districts and be enrolled in a nursing program. Elizabethtown-Lewis graduate Riley Diemand is the most recent recipient of the Holly Estus Memorial Scholarship. She is currently enrolled in the nursing program at Daemen College near Buffalo. Diemand said receiving the scholarship was an honor and a welcome help to her expenses, and doing away with it could have a significant impact. “I think a lot fewer people would decide to get into nursing,” said Diemand, “especially because of the high cost of school.” Donations to support the Holly Estus Memorial Scholarship may be sent to Elizabethtown Community Hospital, Attn: Jane Hooper, 75 Park St., Elizabethtown, N.Y. 12932.

Patriots finish season with loss to B’town By Matt Bosley BEEKMANTOWN — AuSable Valley let their undefeated season slip away with a 3-1 loss to Beekmantown Oct. 25 in CVAC girls soccer. Still, with 13 wins under their belt and the top seed for sectionals already wrapped up, the Patriots had more important things on their minds. “It was a tough game to play,” said AuSable Valley head coach Keith Raines. “We really didn’t have a lot to play for.” Having been rescheduled from an Oct. 15 rain-out, the end-of-season match gave the Patriots little to gain by defeating the 12-2-1 Eagles. Instead, said Raines, they accomplished their goal of escaping from the game relatively injury-free in order to prepare for their next match Oct. 30 in the sectional semifinals. “Obviously it’s very disappointing to lose, but at the end of the day, we’re gearing ourselves toward Saturday,” Raines said. Beekmantown took control early as Bailey Waterbury fed a thru-ball to Jess Huber for a 1-0 lead that stuck through the first half. “Bailey Waterbury played well,” said Raines. “She won most of the 50-50 balls we brought in front of her.” AuSable Valley answered early in the second, however, when Megan Colby took possession of a deflected shot from Sam Ashline and fired it in at close range. “We proved that we can play with them. We scored a goal and got back in it,” said Raines, “but give credit to Beekmantown, they played a full 80 minutes and got the win they deserved.”

Eighth-grader Kallie Villemaire gave the Eagles the lead for good by heading in a long cross from Hannah Newgarden mid-way through the second half. Huber added the insurance goal with a long boot from 30 yards out that found the top of the net. The Patriots will face the winner of a first-round matchup between Saranac and Plattsburgh Oct. 30, and Raines said they will be fine-tuning their offense in preparation. “The last few games, we haven’t really scored as many goals as we did earlier in the season, and I’d like to see us improve on that,” he said.

Beekmantown 3, AuSable Valley 1 1 2—F AuSable Valley 0 1—1 Beekmantown 1 2—3 First Half: 1, B, Huber (Waterbury) 3:15. Second Half: 2, AV, Colby (Ashline) 7:04. 3, B, Villemaire (Newgarden) 18:40. 4, B, Huber (Momot) 34:04. Shots: Ausable Valley 4, Beekmantown 12 Saves: Finnegan (AV) 6, O’Connor (B) 2.

Red Storm stay perfect 28-19 win against Moriah seals 8-0 season By Matt Bosley MORIAH — The battle of the unbeatens was fought and won mainly on the ground Oct. 22 as the Red Storm held off a second-half surge by Class D powerhouse Moriah to finish 8-0 in Northern Football Conference play. Losing quarterback Mike Phelan to injury on their first drive, Saranac Lake relied on Forrest Morgan to take the helm on offense. “It changed our game plan a little bit,” said Red Storm head coach Eric Bennett, “but Forrest came out and did an

outstanding job.” After Josh Quinn picked off the first pass attempt by Moriah quarterback Mike Speshock, Morgan broke loose for a 91-yard touchdown run to open Saranac Lake’s second drive, sparking a big first half for his team. The Red Storm’s dominance resembled that of many of their games this season as they used speed to their advantage with several runs to the outside and aerial threats as well. Peter Madden added a 40-yard run to paydirt that Morgan followed with a 67-yard touchdown pass to Quinn, giving Saranac lake a 22-0 lead at halftime. Meanwhile, the Red Storm defense repeatedly stuffed Moriah at the line of scrimmage with excellent play by Brian Fortune and Chris Dorman. “We can spread the ball around and get it up top when we


need to,” said Bennett, “but if we have to slug it out, we can do that too.” The Vikings came out looking like a different team in the second half, however, as they engineered a methodical eightand-a-half minute drive powered by bruising runs from Nick Gilbo between the tackles. “To keep their offense off the field is a big key,” said Moriah head coach Dom Tesar, noting how changes to the blocking scheme created a little more running space for their backs. On fourth and goal from the 8, they lined up for a field goal, only to have Speshock toss a pass to Gilbo in the back of the end zone. “Moriah made some excellent adjustments at halftime,” said Bennett, “and physically, they sort of wore us down a little bit.”

Valley News - 27

The Vikings marched down the field for yet another drive that Speshock capped off with a two-yard run to make it 22-13. However, Saranac Lake’s CJ Stewart made a big play to block the extra point and keep the Red Storm’s lead out of reach. Another three-and-out for Saranac Lake gave Moriah their opportunity, but the Vikings hopes were dashed when a botched punt play gave Saranac Lake a first and goal on the two yard line. Stewart quickly slipped in for the score. A desperation drive by the Vikings benefited from a 24-yard reception by Mike Mascarenas, and Gilbo finished it off with a two-yard dive, but it was too little too late for Moriah. Saranac Lake finished the regular season undefeated with the win, albeit by their smallest margin yet. “From our perspective, we’ve been waiting for a challenge for a while, and Moriah gave it to us,” said Bennett. “When all is said and done, to deal with a Moriah team that’s as tough as they are says a lot for our kids.

Taste of Home Cooking School makes its way to Plattsburgh By Jeremiah S. Papineau


PLATTSBURGH — The people of the North Country will soon have an opportunity to get a first-rate education in the world of culinary arts. Denton Publications and other fine sponsors will bring the Taste of Home Cooking School to the Crete Civic Center Saturday, Nov. 6, giving people an opportunity to learn helpful tips and techniques through informative cooking demonstrations. The event is one New Market Press, a sister corporation of Denton Publications based in Vermont, has been doing for the past five years, said associate publisher Ed Coats. This year, Coats said he was interested in bringing it to this side of Lake Champlain. “We’ve always had such a strong interest in Taste of Home from people in the North Country,” said Coats. “So, we decided we’d bring it to the Crete this year to give the folks here a little less of a drive.” The event will center around demonstrations from Taste of Home culinary specialist Michael Barna, who has conducted Taste of Home shows throughout New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire and New Jersey. According to the Taste of Home Web site, Barna has an extensive background in the culinary world. When only 13 years old, Barna obtained a position washing dishes at a local retirement facility, learning the value of hard work and developing his enthusiasm for food and entertaining. His passion for food and entertaining continued as he earned an associate’s degree in occupational studies from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. Upon graduation from the institute, Barna headed to Atlantic City were he was a member of various kitchen brigades, opening three gourmet casino restaurants at Resorts International, Trump Plaza and Trump Marina properties. Barna eventually moved to

the Philadelphia area where he accepted the position of executive sous chef at the prestigious 5 Diamond 4 Star Rittenhouse Hotel. He later became executive chef for Dean & Deluca’s Café Bistro division, managing their three Philadelphia locations. In addition to being a culinary special for Taste of Home Cooking Schools, Barna’s background also includes facilitating private and Web site cooking classes, conducting local and national television commercials, and competing in national recipe contests. “We’re excited to have Michael as our featured chef this year,” said Coats. “I’m very impressed with what I’ve read about him and if he’s as good as last year’s chef, people are in for a treat.” Taste of Home will also feature booths hosted by more than 40 local vendors, featuring everything from cooking utensils, home furnishings, candy makers and more, said Coats. “We’ve got a lot of great local businesses and representatives from national companies, too, who are on board with this event,” said Coats. “We’ve had people jumping at the chance to be a part of this and I’m positive that’s because they know how big this is going to be. It’s unbelievable.” The enthusiasm hasn’t stopped with just the vendors, added Coats. “We’ve been selling tickets left and right for this,” he said. “I knew it would be a hit, but I didn’t know it would be such a hit so fast.” With only days left until the event, tickets are selling fast, said Coats. The cost of admission is $13, with VIP passes available for $40. VIP passes give attendees an autographed Taste of Home cookbook, meet and greet with Barna and guaranteed front-row seating. “There may be some tickets available at the door, but I wouldn’t wait until then,” noted Coats. “Last year’s show sold out.” Doors will open for the event at 11 a.m., with the show to be-

gin at 2 p.m. Attendees get free goodie bags. Door prizes will be awarded. Tickets may be purchased at Price Chopper in Plattsburgh, Champlain and Lake Placid. Tickets are also available at Wilson’s Appliance Center in Plattsburgh and the Plattsburgh office of Denton Publications. VIP passes are available only at Denton Publications. Taste of Home Cooking School is sponsored locally by Denton Publications, specifically the ‘burgh, North Countryman and Valley News; Price Chopper, Wilson’s Appliance Center, Kool 105, WOKO 98.9, and WJOY AM1230. The event is sponsored nationally by Chex, Campbell’s, Gallo Family Vineyards, King Arthur, Kitchen Basics, Morton Salt and Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust. “Working with the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department to bring Taste of Home here has been lots of fun,” said Coats. “Having a national event of this magnitude here yet again proves Plattsburgh can attract all kinds of events that will draw people by the hundreds, if not, thousands.” For more information about the Taste of Home Cooking School, contact the Plattsburgh office of Denton Publications at 561-9680 or visit them at 24 Margaret St., Suite 1.
