COLLEGE FUNDING SEMINAR TO BE HELD AT AREA LIBRARIES As September brings students back to the classroom, it is time to think about their future College plans. Saving for college is not just for parents any longer. Today there is a way for friends and family who contribute to a child’s future and current education to earn a New York state tax deduction and special Estate and Gift benefits on a Tax Advantaged New York State College Savings Program. It is important that you not miss any opportunities to learn how to pay less for colleges and find the right school. Dr. Dean Skarlis, President and Founder of the College Advisor of New York will be presenting this topic at an educational seminar at East Greenbush Library on October 9; and at Rensselaer Public Library on October 10th from 6 to 9 pm. Dean has 20 years experience in higher education, including a B.A. in psychology from Allegheny College, an M.A. in Psychology from Duquesne University, and a doctoral degree in Educational Policy and Administration from the University of Pittsburgh. Locally, he has been a guest on the Capital News 9 Family Living segment and WTEN TV, as well as a regular guest on CBS6 WRGB TV.

TVHS TO LEAD PROFESS. DEVELOP. IN DENVER Diana Dee Weldon will lead a lesson at the Hi-Tech High Impact Technology Exchange Conference in Denver, Colorado on Thursday called, “Chemistry Engineering and Literacy through Dye Sensitized Solar Cells.” Weldon will draw on her lessons at TVHS to instruct teachers from across the US on how to lead a lesson that teaches oxidation/reduction chemistry at the high school level while combining 21st century skills. “During the professional development offering, teachers will see how common core literacy, engineering concepts and chemistry are combined in an engaging, student-centered project,” Weldon said. She will also discuss how teachers can integrate local businesses into the project, which is a core concept of the TVHS experience. A former GE scientist, Weldon joined TVHS in 2009 and teaches biotechnology.

SCHOOLS ARE CENTERS OF COMMUNITY LIFE Letter to the Editor: Ron Berti’s presentation in this past week’s Advertiser opens possibilities for discussions about the future of education in the Sand Lake/Averill Park community. The Averill Park school district, a high performing system, provides a quality education for most pupils by current standards. However, those standards are no longer adequate for meeting the educational challenges our state, its localities, and citizens now face. The new context for framing public discourse is “our schools as centers of community life”. Our state has led with the credit for life experience and the Excelsior degree program, promoted “life long learning”, “New York State…the State of Learning”, and the Study Circles programs. There is an urgent need for everyone, not just children and youth, to keep on learning over the life span. Most school systems, and their supporting mechanisms, still embody the traditional view that the core of educational offerings be targeted on pre-k through 12, and college/university/career preparation for young adults. Ron’s ideas to expand the roles of the many and varied community, government and civic organizations is in line with recent policy changes aimed to create a partnership between and among the current educational establishments and all other community resources. It appears that the federal government has funds to support such efforts through the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program. At the college levels, I have often wondered why we need more and expanded parking facilities there. Instead of more and larger parking facilities, it seems to me that some instructors could offer classes at satellite locations. It would save some students travel expenses, cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, and provide for new, targeted learning opportunities for more citizens. Commendations to Ron for taking a leadership role in our community with his proposals. ~ Ken York, East Nassau Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

Miss PAM is Coach P.A.M. this week!!!!! Miss P.A.M. of Moxie’s Ice Cream, 1344 Spring Avenue, Wynantskill, trades in her ice cream hat this week to be Coach P.A.M. at the London 2012 Olympics! When Miss PAM is not here scooping ice cream for the summer, she lives in San Salvador, El Salvador in Central America. It is here, 5 years ago that she met race walker Emerson Hernandez. He was 18 years old and very patient with her “bad” Spanish. Because of a heel injury that inhibited her running, she was learning to race walk and trained with the Salvadoran National Team…OK, she was on the track the same time as they were! Emerson was an improving athlete that had a heart, desire and mind to compete at a high international level. Between the arrival and departure of two national coaches, Coach PAM, a level II USATF certified coach, became Emerson’s interim and basic fundamental coach and first sponsor. Coach PAM promised him that when he qualified for the Olympics, she would be his number one cheerleader. He accomplished that feat in Taicong, China in March 2011 with an “A: Olympic qualifying time of 3:56 for the 50K race-walk, yes, 32 miles, longer than a marathon. His request to the Olympic Committee of El Salvador was that Coach PAM be his coach in London. Emerson arrived in London on July 26th from training camp in Italy while Coach PAM arrived a week later. Emerson will compete in his Salvadoran country colors of blue and white on Saturday, August 11th, in the 50K race walk at 9am London time. You can personally meet Emerson Hernandez, El Salvador’s 2012 Olympian, on Friday, August 17th, at Moxie’s Ice Cream for a demonstration and explanation of race walking at 6:30 PM. Come to watch, listen, participate or practice your Spanish. If you have any questions, please contact us at 283-4901.

QUILTS ON DISPLAY In June, we had in The Advertiser the Bicentennial Planning Committee historical article and picture for the Bicentennial Quilt 1976. Several persons requested to see it again. It is on display in the Kennedy Room of the Sand Lake Library during August. Also on display in the Kennedy Room is a twin-bed quilt (65x 85). Yvonne Welsh has done the piecing and design of Moonlit Lake and machine quilting is by Laurie Collins. Yvonne states, Thinking of Averill Park brings water to mind: the lakes I drive or bicycle by, when heading to Averill Park via back roads and the creeks and low spots, when driving the main roads. These water bodies plus many forested areas and greenery in town inspired the choice of design and colors for the quilt”. The quilt will be raffled. Tickets - $2.00 each; three for $5.00 are available at the Sand Lake Town Library, and on August 25th, from noon to 5pm; and the 26th from10am to 5pm. Drawing will be held by 6pm at the Bicentennial booth. ~Mary French, Sand Lake Historical Society

During the eight-week program, Rios completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations”. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

“Life begins at retirement.” ~Author Unknown The Town of East Greenbush along with the East Greenbush Police Department would like to thank Detective Joseph DeSeve for 38 years of dedication and service. This week Det. DeSeve hangs up his uniform one last time as he announces his retirement. Detective DeSeve joined EGPD in May 1974. Det. DeSeve has been deeply involved in our community, and we believe that he has been a positive influence for the youth of the community for years. Det. DeSeve was appointed to Juvenile Officer in 1980. In 1985, Det. DeSeve attended a training program in behavior modification and drug prevention which was implemented into the East Greenbush School District from 19851988. He attended the first NYS sponsored D.A.R.E training program in 1989, which was then brought to the school where it continues today. Det. DeSeve was appointed to Juvenile Detective in 1990, Detective in 1994 and in 2003 officially appointed to head of both the Detective and Juvenile Units with East Greenbush Police Department. It is with utmost respect that we thank Detective DeSeve for his service with the Town. The Community and Recreation Department is proud to announce that the 2012 Summer Camp exceeded our expectations this year! Attendance was above and beyond past years. The department has received positive feedback responses from parents regarding the wonderful staff, as well as the activities that were planned for the camp this year. Kudos goes out to each and every staff member. Along with the success of the first session of the Summer Camp, we would also like to announce another year of Music in the Park. Music in the Park is located in Onderdonk Park, Hampton Ave, across from Hampton Manor Lake from 6-8pm. This year bands include: White Water - August 14th; Triskelle - August 21st; The 3 Jay’s - August 28th. Feel free to bring a lawn chair to sit back and relax and listen to the sensational artists. We encourage friends, families and neighbors to join together in celebrating the summer season in our very own community!! We hope that everyone is enjoying their summer. As we enter the last half of summer, we hope that everyone will continue to enjoy the warm weather and each other. Only a few more weeks left until school is back in session.

AP BOARD OF EDUCATION UPDATE Dear Averill Park Community Members, As the district continues to optimize resources for the upcoming school year, we want to share with you an update. Jim Hoffman, our new Superintendent, is transitioning well into his position. A couple team building meetings with the board are being scheduled and Jim is busy getting to know the staff. Administrators have been attending meetings at Questar to better understand the Annual Professional Performance Reviews (APPR) parameters. Teachers and Administrators are assisting with defining the APPR plan to be submitted to the State Education Department. This represents a tremendous amount of work. More details will be shared once finalized. Modified sports have been re-instituted for this year. Cuts in State Aid have made it increasingly difficult for districts to support the extracurricular activities. Discussions will begin to determine how to support these activities going forward. In an ideal world, it will be a combination of the school district with the support of local interest groups. The district received $40,000 in bullet aid, earmarked for Special Education, from Senator McDonald.. We appreciate the Senator’s efforts and are finalizing the most effective use of these funds. In addition, the district received a $30,000 Japan Foundation grant, which will return a part-time foreign language teacher. The Board would like to thank the administration as well as the teacher and administrator unions for reaching agreements (contracts available on the district website). Their efforts are appreciated as we all work together to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. Next board meeting is on Tuesday, August 14, in the district office board room. Check our website,, for additional information.

REMEMBERING ABE LINCOLN’S POLITICAL AXIOM Letter to the Editor: I have read Mr. Crawmer’s entertaining, enlightening (in a way, I suppose), and always humorous letters for many years. I have, however motivated I might have been to comment dozens of times, but, remembering a mind like his, a steel trap, doesn’t open, never bothered. The last admonishment in his most recent letter of August 2, though, almost made me spit out my coffee in laughter: “Remember Abraham Lincoln’s old political axiom: ’Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.’” After probably twenty years of political drivel spewing practically weekly from Mr. Crawmer’s prolific pen, I wonder if that Mensa mind still recognizes irony, especially in its crystal purity as he exhibited. One can only hope! ~ Tom Thornton, Schodack Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

La Salle graduate Ted Hotaling ’91 who is now the Head Men’s Basketball Coach at the University of New Haven. Ted came back to LSI to help out at current LSI Basketball Coach Steve Sgambelluri’s camp. Ted Hotaling has been all over the world playing basketball. Tuesday he came back to where it really all started. A graduate of the Class of 1991 from La Salle Institute in Troy, NY, Ted Hotaling and Ted Hotaling, the current Steve Sgambelluri Head Coach of Men’s Basketball for the University of New Haven (CT.) Chargers, was in the gym for current La Salle Institute Varsity Basketball Coach Steve Sgambelluri’s summer camp. Hotaling started speaking to the 30-plus high school campers by joking how he was hesitant to come because of how Sgambelluri’s playoff game-tying 3-pointer for Saint Rose against a young assistant coach named Hotaling still haunts him. Hotaling praised Sgambelluri as a player and coach and wished the Cadets the best of luck in the coming season. Hotaling guided the campers in a few drills on shooting, passing, catching, and ball control, and also left them with a few words of advice for going forward in the game of basketball and school. He stressed some points that he uses at UNH: “becoming is better than being,” and be a growth mindset player not a fixed mindset player - enjoy the mindset of becoming better in all aspects. Hotaling is returning to New Haven for his 3rd season as Head Coach.

283-5803 • OPEN LETTER TO SENATOR ROY McDONALD Dear Senator McDonald: On behalf of the Board of Education, the administration and staff, as well as students, parents and the community, I would like to thank you for your efforts on behalf of your constituents. Specifically, we are very grateful for the $40,000 you have been able to secure for our district to offset special education costs and reductions for the 20122013 school year. It is gratifying to know that you understand the importance of educating all of our children, including those with disabilities. As you know, these programs are often very costly, but worth the effort to raise the ability levels of all students. Your long-time support of our district, coupled with your understanding of the need for students to gain the skills necessary to be successful following their scholastic career made us proud to see your encouragement of our efforts through this funding. As always, you have a standing invitation to visit us whenever you wish. We know that you promote quality education throughout the 43rd Senate District, and that we can count upon your support in these difficult economic times. Thanks again, and I hope you will be able to find time in your busy schedule to visit the district. Sincerely, James D. Hoffman, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools

A WYNANTSKILL LANDMARK As you drive through Wynantskill, you may notice an empty building which formerly was Roxy Cleaners. While this may not be a “landmark” as mentioned in the title, the building that preceded it certainly was. A Troy Times Record newspaper article from December 1959 tells the story. “Once again the old makes way for the new as another of our landmarks soon will be replaced with a modern building. The Van der Zee house, or more recently known as the Film house, which is located on Main Avenue and Orchard Terrace, has been purchased by a firm which plans to erect a dry cleaners there. Already the former service station has been razed and work has been started on the new building. Mrs. George Film, former owner of the house is the daughter of Edgar Van der Zee, who purchased the property about 73 years ago from Miss Molly Twiss, whose father was an Indian Trader. At that time, the Twiss farm covered the area from Orchard Terrace to Bellemead Street and extended back into the woods. Mrs. Van der Zee owned and operated a grocery store on Fifth Avenue in Troy, opposite the county jail. Desiring to purchase some land in the country he approached Miss Twiss for a section of her property. At first she was reluctant to sell, but when foreclosure was threatened, Miss Twiss offered Mr. Van der Zee a tenant house, which was located behind the present house, and almost an acre of land. About 1888, the Van der Zee’s brother was engaged to build the house. Mrs. Film has lived in the old homestead since she was 6 years old and with her sister attended the Wynantskill Public School, which was located on Church Street. Mrs. Film recalls dressing up in Indian costumes which were loaned by Miss Twiss for church plays. She favored especially an authentic war bonnet, which was in that family’s possession. Mrs. Film was married in the old homestead in 1903. The family then moved to Nebraska and to Wyoming where Mr. Film held a position with the Union Pacific Railroad. The family moved back to Wynantskill due to family illness.” So a Wynantskill landmark was taken down for a dry cleaner and now is an empty building. Progress?

TVHS STUDENTS PLAN TRIP TO HAITI A group of Tech Valley High School students is planning a relief mission to Haiti in early 2013. The students hope to join teacher Leah Penniman in bringing fruit trees and a lesson on how to plant them properly to the people of Haiti. The students will travel to Cormier, Leogone in Haiti to help the residents recover from a devastating earthquake that struck the impoverished country in 2010. Pre-existing problems of poverty and environmental devastation were further amplified by the natural disaster, and many residents continue to struggle to regain control of their lives, attain basic subsistence, and to heal the emotional wounds inflicted from so much loss, said Penniman, who undertook a mission trip to the region last year bringing another TVHS student project to the people there. The trip will be the culmination of a project undertaken by TVHS students to design a reforestation project that includes development of the optimal planting strategies, forest mapping, and business planning to ensure that the fruit crop results in livelihood enhancement for the farmers as well as soil conservation and ecological wellness for the land. The strategies will be grounded in the needs, ideas, and visions of Haitians and based on successful reforestation projects in Haiti that were sustainable over the long term and benefited all community members, including the landless, Penniman said. She and the estimated six students who will go to Haiti will bring the project and donations to Haiti in February of 2013 where they will work side by side with the farmers of Cormier and to co-facilitate the forestry training. “We view this as a fantastic opportunity to not only teach the students about science and agriculture, but the world and to open their eyes to the conditions so many people exist in,” said Principal Dan Liebert.

FIGHT FLEAS During its two to three week average life, a single flea will lay hundreds of eggs. Failing to stop the re-infestation cycle could make eliminating the problem nearly impossible. When fleas strike, nip the problem in the bud immediately. Keep your pet groomed and use a topical treatment monthly. Wash pet bedding, vacuum rugs and carpets, and spray your yard. The good news is that keeping pets flea-free is easier now, with topical treatments that kill fleas and ticks quickly. Just be sure to weigh your pet carefully to ensure the correct dosage. Don’t guess your pet’s weight!

y ASSISTANCE DOGS d Assistance Dogs of America evaluates s t each dog for two to four weeks before placing it in a foster t home to begin formal training. Evaluation includes a variety of tests to gauge the dog’s potential as an assistance dog. These , evaluations test dogs for food aggression, social interest and e sound sensitivity among other things. Once a dog passes those basic evaluations, it is then evaluated more extensively as trainers attempt to learn more about the dog’s temperament and personality. Basic obedience exercises are performed to see how dogs respond in different environments, and dogs that pass each stage of the evaluation process are then examined by a veterinarian to determine if they are physically able to handle the considerable tasks required of assistance dogs. If the dog is given a clean bill of health, it is then placed in a foster home to begin in its training. Unlike the relatively short evaluation period, the training period for a potential assistance dog takes a minimum of six months and can last as long as 22 months.

SETTING LIVE CATCH ANIMAL TRAPS Nothing to it you might think. Got a squirrel on the roof, a rabbit in the garden? How about a ground hog making a hole in the lawn? Just acquire a trap and get him. Before you get involved in what may sound like an easy fix you may want to consider a few possibilities. First, just because you want to catch a rabbit doesn’t mean that is what you are going to catch. Raccoons, opossums and skunks are more frequently caught in traps than are rabbits and squirrels. It’s not about what food you put in the trap for your animal of choice, because some species will eat anything. Now that you’ve got him what government agency can you call that will come and drive him away at no cost to you? There aren’t any. It is illegal to trap and transport many species of wildlife without a license to do it. Yes, it is against the law. In the yellow pages under pest control, there are listings indicating wildlife capture. Those are the people to call before you set a trap. Trapped animals can bite badly. Even moving a trap containing a wild animal has inherent risks. Don’t do it. To release an animal: Get a blanket, hold it in front of yourself and move slowly toward the back of the trap. The less the trapped animal sees of you the better. Gently and silently put the blanket over the back and sides of the trap and reach around carefully and release the door. When the animal comes out, pick up your blanket and retreat backwards from the released animal slowly but deliberately, holding the blanket in front of you. I have lost count of the number of skunks and raccoons that I have released in this manner with no problem. Keep in mind that wild animals are animals too and deserve humane treatment. Yes, there are laws for this too. It is absolutely unconscionable (and not legal) to leave a wild animal in a trap without consideration for food, water and protection from the sun for hours on end. Before you engage in what sounds simple, easy and cheap, please consider that all might not go as planned. ~ Catherine Crawmer, Animal Control Officer 477-8230

In December 2010 a fire hit the former Brainard Bell on Route 20 causing severe damage in the rear of the building; however the portion nearest the road which housed the bell tower was saved. It was soon proposed that the historic Bell, which had tolled over the hamlet of Brainard for more than a century, be saved as a ‘monument’ to honor the service which the church had provided to the community. Several former members and friends of the church formed Save the Brainard Bell Inc. Committee and meetings were held with the United Methodist Church of Northeastern New York who had taken ownership of the property. When the church was demolished recently the Bell and Tower, were donated to the Committee. In May the Bell Committee voted to acquire the former church property and create The Brainard Bell Park. The Committee is now in the process of raising funds to buy the property, restore the bell tower and wheel and finalize installation in the park. If you would like to donate toward this project checks payable to Save the Brainard Bell Inc. may be mailed to PO Box 71, Brainard, NY 12024 and will be greatly appreciated.

RESURRECTION Cut down by government forces, They were left for dead alongside the road. True, they were down, But, they were far from out. All it took was time, and The healing power of sun and water To bring them back again, Stronger than ever! Take a drive; see for yourself What’s really meant by natural beauty? You will see blue-eyed girls Again waiting for the mail. And by their sides Will be lace Miles of pretty white Marked with an occasional blood spot. Joining them in places will be clover, primrose and tall mullein. And just a bit farther off the road, Joe Pye Weed and ironweed. We have been re-blessed With a profusion of natural pulchritude. Do what you can to protect it; The next cut could be the last! ~ Lloyd Barnhart

Two “Technology Made Easy” sessions presented by technology specialist Ronald Roberts, Jr are planned by the Albany Jewish Community Center. “Electronics: TVs, Tablets, Telephones & Computers” will be offered on Tuesday, August 28, 2 -4pm and “Social Media” is scheduled on Friday, September 7, 10am 12pm. Each workshop is free, open to the community, requires a reservation- and will be held in the Albany JCC’s Massry Senior Center, 340 Whitehall Road. Roberts has worked in technology, educating Sam’s Club members in their purchasing decisions for over 4 years. Buying digital technology today involves complex technical terms and options. It’s easy to get lost in the electronics aisle looking for the right TV, digital tablet, mobile phone or computer. In the first session participants will learn: how to navigate today’s technology to find the right device for them, the basics about high tech use, how to stay safe on the internet using common safe computing practices and how to convert home videos to DVD and Digital. The internet offers many ways to communicate with friends and family and social media has become the most popular and easiest way to keep in touch. The second workshop will help people get started, with instruction about Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Pandora -and more. For information and to register, contact the Albany JCC’s senior adult office, 438-6651 x112,

JESUS, THE TRUE BREAD FROM HEAVEN On August 5, 2012, Communion Sunday, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches, as they prepare to celebrate the Lord’s Supper, will come to a fuller understanding of what it means to talk about “Jesus, the True Bread From Heaven.” With focus on John 6:24-35, where the crowds seek bread from Jesus, Jesus tells them that the true bread they ought to seek is the bread that brings them to eternal life. In the sermon, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will speak about Jesus as the bread which nourishes our lives and preserves us for the eternal journey. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its chapel, 43 Church Street, one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Church Street and Route 9J in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Everyone is invited to worship with us.

A CITIZEN’S FRAME The Sand Lake Observer, Ronald Berti I just heard a radio report that short line railroads have grown in the last few years from 70 to over 500. It seems that the rising price of oil has made rail transportation more economic. Coming to age in the 1950’s, I can still vividly remember steam engines. I earnestly believe steam engines are alive! The whistle whistles, the bell rings, they huff, they puff, and they give off a perfume of smoke, cinders and oil. They raise dirt and grime to an acceptable art form. They remind us all of the Golden Spike and the Lionel Corporation. I still drive my wife crazy when we ride around the countryside and come to an isolated railroad crossing and I search both ways to see if I can see the headlight of an oncoming train. If one is coming, I make her pull over and I count the cars as the train passes. My personal record is 178 outside of Rawlins Wyoming. I can still hear the sound of the lonesome whistle in the night as a midnight freight builds up speed to go over the Rocky Mountains to Cheyenne. Back in those days, we had over 200 railroads and many had very interesting names. Some of the rare railroads I remember were the Scalplock & Defiance; Tucson, Cornelia & Gila Bend; Arvada Wyarno & Ulm, and the Tonopah and Tidewater. Each had a unique nickname, logo and painted freight car. Several major railroads named their passenger trains with their own distinctive names: The Wabash Cannonball; The Nellie Bly, The Twentieth Century Limited and The Super Chief. By the mid-sixties diesels, those ugly mules that have had a charisma bypass, had replaced over 90% of those beautiful and graceful steam engines. I believe we need to re-introduce our youth to those elegant giants of yesteryear. Fortunately, railroad enthusiasts all over the country have worked very hard to preserve scenic railroads in every state and most of them have restored a stylish and polished steam engine. New York scenic train rides include the very popular and scenic Adirondack Scenic Railroad, along with the oldest running scenic train ride, the Arcade & Attica, that has been continuously operating since 1962. Additional notable New York state train rides can be found on the Delaware & Ulster Railroad, Finger Lakes Scenic Railway, Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad, and the Medina RR Museum. The Catskill Mountain Railroad runs scenic trains out of Kingston and Mt Trempor. Saratoga & North Creek Railway operates several scenic railway packages along with weekend dinner trains. Do your family a favor. Take a ride back into history. Ronald can be

PUBLIC HELP NEEDED TO SOLVE STRING OF TROY ARSONS Letter to the Editor: A series of suspected arsons in Troy has many residents and property owners concerned about their safety and their property. The fires have been set in various areas of the city at residential structures. There were five suspected arsons in just a one-week period, disrupting neighborhoods and the residents living in or near the structures. Along with damaging property and jeopardizing the lives of residents, the suspected arsons also put at risk our brave firefighters and put increased pressure on our city and county emergency services, and add expense for taxpayers. Information from the community is crucial in bringing an end to these suspected arsons. To help gather information, we have joined together to sponsor a reward fund for information leading to the capture of the person or persons responsible for these arsons. We have pledged $500 to the reward fund. We were pleased to be joined by Troy residents John and Ann McLaughlin, who also pledged $500 for the reward fund. Other residents, businesses and community organizations who wish to make a pledge for the reward effort to help stop the string of arsons are invited to call us at the Legislature at 2702880. Working together, we can help make our city safer and stronger. ~ Harry Tutunjian and Henry Bauer, Legislators Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.
