To the Editor:
The First Annual Potsdam Sandstonerman Youth Triathlon was a huge success on Saturday, Aug. 14. We had 53 participants aged 5 to 17, and the weather was beautiful with sunny skies and a light breeze.
We are so thankful for the generous support of this inaugural triathlon from many generous sponsors. Being the first year for a new event, it was terrific to have so many local sponsors.

Dogs in cars
What is wrong with people who insist on bringing their dogs to Wal-Mart, then leaving them in the car to bark uncontrollably? I have seen this happen on numerous occasions. The most recent was very disturbing to say the least. A good-sized black lab in a rather small car was jumping frantically from the front to back seats barking and slobbering all over the place. My child was petrified to even get out of the car. When we did the dog started barking aggressively showing teeth and all. Grant it the window was down maybe an inch on both sides but come on folks.
