Researchers Suggest Precautions for Bass Tournament Participants
01:46pm EST, 22 Jan 2014
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Jan. 22, 2014) — Researchers from SUNY Plattsburgh’s Lake Champlain Research Institute have recommendations for bass fishing tournament participants to help save the fish caught and released.
The recommendations, derived from a two-year study of several thousand bass during the course of nine Plattsburgh-area fishing tournaments, are designed to eliminate or reduce fish stress; manage trauma in bass that are caught; and help fish disperse from release points in Lake Champlain.
Dr. Tim Mihuc and Mark Malchoff of the LCRI led the research team, which included SUNY Plattsburgh students participating during the 2011 and 2012 field seasons. The resulting 37-page report, “Post Tournament Release Movements of Black Bass in Lake Champlain,” serves as a technical report to the Lake Champlain Basin Program, which, along with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, funded the research.

History Buff Receives Knapp North Country Scholarship
09:11am EST, 12 Dec 2013
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Dec. 12, 2013) — North Country native Morgan Judkins has a passion for local history, and, now — thanks to a scholarship — she’ll be able to breathe a little easier while she pursues that passion.
The six-year Kent Delord House Museum volunteer and Battle of Plattsburgh re-enactor was awarded the 2013 Knapp North Country Scholarship — a merit-based scholarship for qualified students from Clinton, Essex, Franklin and Hamilton counties. North Country scholarships are funded by gifts from local businesses and individuals, which support high-achieving local students.
Judkins’ scholarship, funded by the Champlain Telephone Company, was renamed in 2009 to honor the late Edit and Kenneth Knapp. Edith was the executive vice president of the Champlain Telephone Company and a benefactor to many residents of the Champlain region. In addition to serving on the SUNY Plattsburgh College Council, Kenneth was the youngest mayor of Mooers, N.Y., elected at age 18.
