Lookback: Oct. 7 to 13

25 YEARS — 1988

▶ City residents aren’t content with a new noise ordinance that has resulted in 24 arrests in the past month and have asked aldermen to do more. Two SUNY Plattsburgh students spoke at a Common Council public hearing saying that only cooperation and communication between the college and community groups can bring about a solution. 

▶ The Village of Dannemora moved to create a village planning board, taking a step towards controlled growth and zoning. The first job is to come up with a land-use map and a village plan.

▶ Mohawks at Ganienkeh are arming to defend their territory with semi-automatic weapons. “In order to cover up the real struggle, they (the state) will use the bingo and slots as a reason why they will use state police or military force to force our people into submission,” said Paul Delaronde, Ganienkeh leader.

50 YEARS — 1963

▶ The State Conservation Department hopes to buy all 1,300 acres of Valcour Island to create a multi-purpose recreation center. The island, two miles long and a mile across, would cost the state $250,000.

▶ Plattsburgh High School plans to do away with night football, said Principal Claude Wood, unless there’s an improvement in spectator behavior. School officials are taking steps to cut down on drinking and rowdiness and are stationing extra police patrolmen at the field’s entrance. 

75 YEARS — 1938

▶ The Chateau, Plattsburgh’s outstanding cabaret, will be reopened. Covering an entire block from Broad and Cornelia streets, the opening inaugurates a new era in local clubs, featuring comfort, fine food and wine, and an outstanding orchestra. 

▶ The mills and mines at Lyon Mountain will reopen after closing a year earlier because of a shortage of orders. Four-hundred workmen will return to work at the Chateaugay Ore and Iron Company.

▶ The town supervisor of Peru received a telegram announcing presidential approval of sewage projects to clean up stream pollution. The Peru project will cost approximately $55,000 and is part of a national wide-spread drive to rid pollution.
