Averill Park Art students always put forth their best when it comes to their artwork, but during the first week of November they put in extra time and effort to put together a portfolio that would be presented to multiple college representatives from around the country. Sage Portfolio Day is held every year at Sage College for students to show their artwork to college representatives in hopes of getting constructive criticism that may or may not lead to acceptance to an art program or possible art scholarships. Colleges like St. Rose, Hartwick, Syracuse, Hartford, SUNY New Paltz, Potsdam, Purchase and many others, were visiting the Sage campus to review art student’s work. Great feedback was given to some of our Averill Park art students, whether it was advice on composition, line relationships, or foreshortening. Students left with ideas about how to expand their portfolios and develop themselves more as artists, this increases the chances for successful reviews in the future. When reviewing portfolios, colleges are scoring students on formal skill level, a willingness to take risks, and overall presentation. Colleges want to see how students present their work to the reviewer. Beyond constructive criticism, a lot of Averill Park students were instantly accepted into some college’s art programs. Out of seventeen students that were able to attend the event, at least twelve of them were told they would be accepted into one or more art programs. Congratulations to those accepted and an overall congrats to all the art students who attended, your hard work is evident, keep making great art! ~Courtney Lou Kane (arts editor)

“Devoted to pets and those who love them...”

Do your pets love playing in the snow, but get stiff from the cold?... We can help! EMPIRE STATE PLAZA ICE RINK TO OPEN IN JANUARY Commissioner RoAnn Destito announced that the Empire State Plaza ice rink will open to the public for the first time since 2007. The popular outdoor rink will open in early January and is anticipated to remain open for the remainder of the winter. The rink will be open in the afternoons and evenings, 7 days per week, and skating will be free. The New York State Office of General Services (OGS) and Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) are partnering with the Lake Placid Regional Winter Sports Committee, a 501C3 corporation, who will underwrite the ice rink operations by contributing $100,000 for the 2012 winter season. The funds will support the mission of the organization to enhance New York State’s economy, quality of life, image and development of regional, national and international sports and will be used at the Empire State Plaza to sponsor skating clinics for inner-city youth to promote an active lifestyle and as a recruitment tool for potential worldclass athletes. Funding will also be used to attract visitors to events and activities in the Lake Placid region including worldclass bobsledding, professional figure skating, the Empire State Games, and skiing and snowboarding at Whiteface Mountain and Gore Mountain. “ORDA is excited to team up with the Sports Committee to bring skating back to the plaza. Skating is a terrific family activity and it’s great that families and people of all ages will have the chance to skate again in this beautiful complex,” Ted Blazer, ORDA president and CEO, said.

TROY LIBRARY SYCAWAY BRANCH CLOSING The Board of Trustees of the Troy Public Library voted to adopt a very lean operating budget for the library in 2012. Since voters rejected the proposed library budget back in September, revenue for the library reverts to the funding level approved by voters in 2009 which provides for a library levy of $890,000. This along with additional pressures on the budget due to the elimination of Rensselaer County support has led the Board to make the decision to close the Sycaway Branch Library in School 18 on Hoosick Street in an effort to concentrate the library’s program of service at its two remaining locations in Lansingburgh and downtown Troy. “It was a difficult decision for the Board”, said Board President Mary Muller. “The challenge is to avoid spreading ourselves too thin with the resources we have to work with.” The Sycaway Branch has been a part of the Troy Public Library for a long time and is valued by neighborhood residents. Circulation of books and other materials has been declining in recent years and the branch is really too small to properly serve the community. It has no handicapped access and rest room facilities for public use are limited. In addition there is no program space for either adult or children’s events. The target date for closing the branch is Friday, January 6. The Board looks forward to planning for improved public library service to the Sycaway neighborhood in the future as resources allow.

My art is largely informed by my other interests including my profession, geology, science, and history. It is also influenced by my fascination with certain places, with ruins, with relics, and with the bizarre. From 1975 until the early 1990s, my principal medium was scrimshaw. My principal printmaking media are etching, aquatint, dry point, and linocut.” Experience the work of a master printmaker and be prepared to be amazed by his technical brilliance. A free and open to the public artist reception will be on Jan. 15 from 1 -3pm. The Gallery is open Wed. and Fri. from 10 - 12pm, by appt. and during scheduled events.

COUNTY AND UPSEU CONTRACT APPROVED BY MEMBERSHIP Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino has announced that the contract between the County and the largest bargaining unit representing County employees (UPSEU) has been approved by the union members and is now awaiting County Legislative approval. “This contract will provide the County the ability to fund the majority of the programs set to be cut on April 1, 2012 until the end of the year, granting more time for the State to enact meaningful mandate relief that would allow non mandated County services to be continued,” said Jimino. Under the contract employees would receive a one-half percent raise in 2012 and another one-half percent increase in salary in 2013. A qualified “no layoff” and “no outsource” clause in year one of the contract has also been established. The savings to the county in negotiated health insurance changes provide sufficient savings to delay service cuts and provide the salary adjustments. In concluding her remarks Jimino stated, “I want to commend the employees for approving this contract that will afford us the ability to continue these vital local services short term. However, I must caution that until meaningful mandate relief is provided by the state, local services will continue to fall victim of the ever escalating costs of the state mandated programs.” Proposed cuts to be delayed until December 31, 2012 due to Union ratification unless state mandate relief is achieved are: Aging Services home delivered meals will be reduced from five days per week to four days per week; medical transportation will be reduced; the senior center in Rensselaer will be closed; Cornell Cooperative Extension subsidy will be reduced; Planning funding for economic development staff will be reduced; Public Safety funding for training and future planning will be reduced and funding for a replacement vehicle for the Fire Coordinator will be eliminated; Sheriff’s Department funding will be reduced, the specifics to be determined by the Sheriff as a separately elected official; Soil and Water subsidy will be reduced; Van Rensselaer Manor housekeeping and laundry services currently staffed with county employees will be considered for outsourcing, a practice that is currently being exercised in the pharmacy department; and Veterans’ transportation services will be reduced from two to one van per day.

I was very encouraged to see that people called Governor Cuomo with their support for the “Anti-mandatory Mail order Drug” bill (or AMMO for short.) You wanted a choice as to where your prescriptions are filled. You wanted jobs kept in NY. You wanted your medication expert in your own community. This bill was passed by the vast majority of Legislators. It prevents insurance companies from forcing you to use mail order. It allows you to CHOOSE to get 90 day supplies for the SAME COPAYS at your local pharmacy. Millions of dollars will stay in the state every year. (Mail order facilities increase profits for the insurance companies WITHOUT passing the savings to you. A HUGE percentage of medication waste comes from mail order pharmacies.) Your voice was heard. Thank you. Sincerely, Miller Young

BULSON RACE TEAM APPRECIATES SUPPORT FOR SUCCESSFUL SEASON The Chip Bulson Race Team appreciates all involved with our 2011 race program. Ending the season with 9 feature wins, this earned Chip twin titles at Dodge City Speedway in Coblestkill, NY, resulting in the race team being awarded the 35 and over Championship, along with the Thunder in the Valley title, which Chip was able to win 4 out of the 5 series races. Special thanks to: Martins Karting, Millenium race chassis, Kevin Smith race engines, Mike Sullivan, Jason Herrington and Rob Yetman. Chip also maintained Kenny Tremont’s Lebanon Valley tire package for the well known No. 115 Big Block modified. Chip also appreciates the Tremont’s and their sponsor for giving him this opportunity. There were many lessons learned this year from not only the Tremont program, but our own racing, is that most of all racing has never been easy and never will be, but when you have crew members who work through everything that’s thrown at them, the results show. Enough can’t be said about Ken’s talent in and out of the race car. Congratulations Champ on your 13th Lebanon Valley Track title and your Glenn Ridge Track Title. ~Chip Bulson Race Team
