The law that was voted in Aug. 5, is the fourth to pass this year by the current board. The most recent: a local law to recover the impact costs of the opioid epidemic in the county. The changes to the previous county coroner law have been a long time coming; talks about changes to the law have been going on for nearly a decade. Francis Whitelaw, one of four Essex County coroners, and his wife, Donna Whitelaw, also a trained coroner, were in attendance, as well as John J. Kelly of Edward L. Kelly Funeral Home in Schroon Lake. Lake Placid and Saranac Lake Police chiefs also submitted a letter to be read at the hearing on the law propositions. Chairman of the Board Shaun Gillilland opened the hearing. “This will be strictly a hearing. I will remind all to refrain from debate,” he said.TRANSPORTATIONThe greatest concern and discussed change was transportation of the dead and dispatch of coroner simultaneously with a funeral home. Under Section VII of the new law, the coroner no longer transports but the task is handed to a contracted funeral home. Currently, the coroner has the ability to remove the deceased from the scene. Each of the coroners had expressed they were well-enough equipped with vehicles for transportation to a funeral home or hospital morgue. In addition, the dispatch of a coroner did not coincide with the call of the funeral home to the scene. The worry for law enforcement and the coroner in this new provision is that the processing of a scene and timely removal will be hampered by waiting for a funeral home to respond to the scene, too. Dispatch will also be centralized and come from the Emergency Medical Services dispatch in Lewis rather than law enforcement calling in the coroner.By Kim Dedam STAFF WRITERThe Revolutionary War gravesite marker features a patriot with a tricorn hat. The medallion was purchased by the DAR here from the Veterans of Foreign War marker collection.ELIZABETHTOWN | A few years ago, the Champlain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) set about work to remove dirt and debris from veterans’ gravestones in local cemeteries. Many of the stones they monitor are very old and worn, dating back to the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. While working in the Old Post Cemetery beside State Route 9, Champlain Chapter DAR Secretary Janet MacDougal Cross found the grave of early pioneer Elisha Frisbie was missing a war marker. Cross, who is a longtime historian in Elizabethtown, knew Frisbie had served in the Revolutionary War.Photo by Kim DedamSee CEMETERY » pg. 2Adirondack Health Fitness Center opens Facility offers cardio, strength-training equipment, 25-yard lap pool By Laura Achouatte STAFF WRITERELIZABETHTOWN | Torrential downpours forecasted for the afternoon of the grand opening of Adirondack Health’s new Lake Placid Health and Medical Fitness center held off for the facility’s dedication Aug. 7. New York State Sen. Betty Little, New York State Assemblyman Dan Stec, Adirondack Health CEO Sylvia Getman, Adirondack Health Foundation Chair Kevin Brady, Adirondack Health Board Chair Ray Agnew, Orthopedic Surgeon William Smith and North Country Regional Economical Development Councilco-chair Jim McKenna spoke at the dedication ceremony of the new fitness center to an audience of locals, stakeholders, facility partners and local officials. The facility’s design incorporates fitness into the health-care setting. Adirondack Health opened a new medical facility in January, and the fitness center opening is the fi nal puzzle piece to a twoyear-long project. The $22 million was invested to equip the “41,000 square-foot state-of-the-art medical facility, complete with a three-lane lap pool, offering sports medicine and therapy services, in addition to traditional health care and treatment options for residents,” a statement from Empire State Development (ESD) said. Of the $22 million, $2 million was from a performance-based grant from ESD supporting Adirondack Health’s vision. The majority of the funds invested in the facility, $16 million, was raised locally.The 25-yard, three-lane pool is one of the featured additions to the health and wellness mission of Adirondack Health at their new facility on Old Military Road.See HEALTH CENTER » pg. 5Photo Adirondack HealthSee CORONER » pg. 5Why Tell th e Story Sharing • an apprec1.J t ion for theleng·th and breatfie of the s truggl e Respect for ~eterans of the caus eRecognition that some issues s till remainNorth Country suffrage Women’s voting rights a contentious issue more than a century ago By Tim Rowland STAFF WRITERA delightful musical revue that includes a long list of 50s favorites in tight harmony, FOREVER PLAID tells the tale of four childhood friends who, after paying their dues performing at weddings and anniversaries, have an opportunity to do a real gig.*Written and Originally Directed & Choreographed by Stuart Ross Musical Arrangements by James Raitt • Originally Produced by Gene Wolsk PO Box 414 • 6705 Main Street, Westport, NY 12993518.962.4449 www.DepotTheatre.org Sponsor: Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union2019 Season SponsorSee SUFFRAGE » pg. 2Depot Theatre 2019224750AUGUST 9 - 25Helen Allen Nerska, director of the Clinton County Historical Association, speaks on North Country suff rage issues to a gathering at the Keene Valley Library. Photo by Tim RowlandKEENE VALLEY | Better than a century ago, a merchant in Plattsburgh took out an advertisement in the paper, using copy that must have seemed hilarious at the time. The ad posited that if women were as excited about voting as they were about shopping at this particular store, they’d have had the ballot by now.But seriously. Helen Allen Nerska, director of the Clinton County Historical Association, speaking to a gathering at the Keene Valley Library last week, said the ad demonstrated the degree to which women’s suff rage was on the minds of North Country residents as states and the nation lurched toward equal voting rights. Articles show that as the debate heated up, there were many clubs, meetings and visits from prominent suff ragists in Clinton and Essex counties, Nerska said. This is the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the vote; it was ratified by the people a year later.2 • August 17, 2019 | The Valley News Sun www.suncommunitynews.com From SUFFRAGE » pg. 170-YEAR BATTLE The fight for women’s suffrage is generally characterized as an ongoing battle that lasted 70 years, with a brief hiatus during the Civil War. Western territories began allowing women to vote, beginning with Wyoming in 1869. New York had a shot at being the first state east of the Mississippi to pass women’s suffrage, but the measure was defeated in 1915, with only 43 percent of the population being in favor, and the distinction went to Illinois. Both Clinton and Essex counties were strongly opposed, Nerska said. But things were beginning to change. Newspapers that had been hostile, or poked fun at, the women’s movement began to show support. “Newspapers are now critical of the anti-suffrage vote,” Nerska said.Published by Denton Publications, Inc.The North Country was home to a number of heroic women who led the fight, including Hannah Straight Lansing, who became editor of the Plattsburgh Sentinel, fighting for rights she herself would never enjoy. “Like many suffragists of her generation, she died before getting the right to vote,” Nerska said. The movement was also helped locally by appearances by titans of the movement, such as Susan B. Anthony, Anna Dickenson and Mary Livermore. The press was initially more impressed with their speeches than with their cause. In 1876, one paper writing on women’s suffrage, said the messenger was persuasive, but as for the right to vote, “afraid not.” “It was very similar to what you might say to a child asking for a second piece of candy,” Nerska said.‘HOWLING DERVISHES’Advertisers made fun of the movement, as did cartoonists, who drew professionally dressed women stridingpurposefully through the living room while the husband timidly huddled in the background with the kids. Anti-suffrage clubs tried to make men — who of course would be the ones to vote — feel as if they were losing their authority. In the North Country, as across the nation, feelings were strong on both sides. And the debate grew nasty. Suffragists were characterized by a local bishop as “howling dervishes” out to poison the minds of young girls. The vote, others wrote, would cause women to lose their ability to keep house. And, alluding to the black vote, newspapers argued that the number of “corrupt and ignorant” voters had already been doubled, and that the country shouldn’t make the same mistake twice. The movement got one last big push when Pres. Woodrow Wilson, in exchange for women’s support of World War I, announced that women should have the right to vote. New York did indeed allow women to vote in 1917. This time Clinton County still voted no, but Essex County, by 15 votes, said yes. ■From CEMETERY » pg. 1“When cleaning Revolutionary stones a while back, we realized that, although he was a veteran, there was no marker. So we wanted to correct that,” she said.“No greater love hath a person than one who is willing to serve to bring to life freedom and liberty as a mark for future generations.”CEREMONYLast Monday, a group of women from the DAR, which was established in this area 110 years ago, joined with some descendants of the Frisbie family to place the medallion. “We purchased a marker from the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars),” Cross said. And donning dresses like those the early settlers might have worn, the brief grave-marking ceremony paid homage to a Revolutionary War patriot with a invocation prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance and a reading of the American’s Creed. Margot Frisbie Marcus, of Westport, a member of the DAR, led the pledge.the site, long before St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church was built. The earliest burial in the Old Post had been about 10 months before Frisbie, with the death of Norman Newell II on Jan. 22, 1809. Elizabethtown received charter as a town in 1798.‘NO GREATER LOVE’Champlain Chapter DAR, founded in 1909, holds a ceremony to place a Revolutionary War marker at Elisha Frisbie’s gravesite.

He was born May 22, 1740, in Branford, Connecticut, and recorded Revolutionary War service there. “He was appointed ‘Cornet’ of Maj. Sheldon’s troop of light horse in the 5th Regiment, Capt. Moses Seymour’s Brigade in May of 1778,” DAR member Jackie Stokes relayed. “Cornet was the standard of a cavalry troop, a commissioned rank in the U.S. Cavalry between sergeant and lieutenant.” Frisbie first went to Fair Haven, Vermont, in 1783. “Records show that he was voted an inhabitant of Fair Haven in 1785. The date of his move to New York is not known,” Stokes shared. But Frisbie did not appear in the 1800 census in either Vermont or New York.
