Rensselaer County Clerk Frank J. Merola reports that the Rensselaer County Clerk’s office has posted the largest revenue surplus to date, returning close to $700,000.00 to county coffers for FY 2011. The Clerk’s office reported 2011 revenue of $2,776,714.00 against expenditures of $2,093,000 for a surplus totaling $683,714.00. County officials will use this surplus revenue to offset any potential increases in the county tax rate which has risen due to explosive increases in state mandated programs such as Medicaid. Mr. Merola is happy to report that this is the twelfth consecutive six figure surplus returned to the County, an achievement made even more impressive due to the economic downturn that has plagued the nation. In the past seven years, the Clerk’s office has returned surplus revenues totaling over $2.8 million dollars to the general fund. The past two years have seen over $1.3 million returned to the county. This is a result of aggressive revenue enhancement programs such as the very successful RENEW RENSSELAER passport and motor vehicle program which has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of passports processed by the Rensselaer County Clerk’s office. Mr. Merola also credits an outstanding DMV department, and an aggressive DMV outreach program that has attracted significant auto dealer business to Rensselaer County and significantly increased DMV revenue. The photo ID program instituted by Mr. Merola in 2006 has proved to be extremely popular, with residents all over the Capital District coming to Rensselaer County for photo ID. “Like many other departments in County government we are doing more with less.” Mr. Merola said, “Our department spending has remained flat since 2008, a result of the tremendous effort by DMV and Record Room staffs as well as upgrades in equipment that has allowed us to maintain present staff levels. Our courteous and efficient service has given our office the well deserved reputation as the most customer friendly Clerk’s office in the capital region. These next few years may prove challenging as a result of the economic downturn, but I am confident that we will continue to return needed money to the County for the benefit of our taxpayers.”

AREA CREDIT UNIONS RAISE $4,000 FOR KIDS AT REGIONAL HOSPITALS Troy, NY (February 24, 2012): Thanks to the generosity of members from three regional credit unions, the 2011 Credit Union Care for Kids Campaign raised $4,000 to benefit pediatric programs at four area hospitals: Glens Falls Hospital, Saratoga Care, Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital (Schenectady) and Seton Health/St. Mary’s Hospital (Troy). Credit unions from the Southern Chapter of the Adirondack District of the CUANY, Inc. who participated in the 2011 campaign include: Hudson River Community Credit Union; Saratoga’s Community Federal Credit Union; and TCT Federal Credit Union. Fundraising was conducted throughout the year and included selling stuffed animals, candy bars, mugs, hats, raffle drawings, lobby coin drops and business donations. Credit Union Care for Kids is a statewide community involvement program of the Credit Union Association of New York, Inc.

The campaign is in keeping with the credit union movement’s philosophy of “people helping people.” The donations will help support the following pediatric services: • Funds will be used to purchase items for a new play room inside Kids Kove, inside the Glens Falls Hospital’s pediatric unit. • Fund the purchase of equipment, education and other needs of patients using Saratoga Care’s Pediatric Emergency Services. • Provide additional books, games, computer programs and software for the Family Language Literacy Project Lending Library at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital. • Well child visits, physicals, immunizations and diagnosis/treatment of illnesses at Seton Health/St. Mary’s Hospital. Since the program began in 1998, credit unions from the Southern Chapter have donated a total of $122,498 to benefit area pediatric programs.

STAY SECURE WHEN USING ONLINE AND MOBILE BANKING (NAPSA)-Whether you’re saving up for a vacation or already traveling on one, banks can make it easier for you to stay in control of your finances with online and mobile banking. Mobile banking lets you access your accounts, check balances, pay bills, transfer money and locate ATMs and bank centers. With online banking, customers can usually review account balances and transactions, transfer funds and receive and pay bills electronically.As these become increasingly popular, security is a top priority for banks. Many use the latest technology to help prevent fraud and identity theft, detect suspicious activity and resolve problems quickly. It’s still important, however, that you, as the user of mobile and online banking services, take the proper precautions to be protected.Here are some tips:1. Don’t use your full or partial Social Security Number as a Personal Identification Number (PIN), user ID or password; use separate user IDs and passwords for your financial accounts and for other sites.2. Choose a bank with products that keep you protected. 3. Don’t use your mobile device to store sensitive personal information or bank account numbers. The bank’s Mobile Banking and Text Banking features let you access your accounts and related details without exposing your account numbers. Consider a screen lock on your mobile device.4. Limit the amount of personal information you provide on social networking sites and be cautious about messages on such sites that contain links.5. Never respond to urgent e-mails or open attachments claiming to be from a bank or any company that requests your account information or personal details. Forward these e-mails to your bank.6. Keep your computer operating system and browser up to date with the latest software and security downloads.7. If you suspect fraudulent

YOUR INDEPENDENT FORECLOSURE REVIEW (NAPSA)-Did you face foreclosure in 2009 or 2010? If so, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says you may be eligible for a free independent review of your case. Independent foreclosure reviews let borrowers who faced foreclosure on their primary residences between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 request reviews of their cases if they believe they suffered financial injury as a result of errors in the foreclosure processes of these servicers:America’s Servicing Company, Aurora Loan Services, Bank of America, Beneficial, Chase, Citibank, CitiFinancial, CitiMortgage, Country-Wide, EMC, EverBank/Everhome, Freedom Financial, GMAC Mortgage, HFC, HSBC, IndyMac Mortgage Services, MetLife Bank, National City, PNC, Sovereign Bank, SunTrust Mortgage, U.S. Bank, Wachovia, Washington Mutual, and Wells Fargo.The reviews will determine whether individuals suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedies due to errors or other problems during their home foreclosure process. The reviews were ordered by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in April 2011 after the federal regulators found unsafe and unsound mortgage servicing and foreclosure practices among these large, federally regulated mortgage servicers.Situations that may have led to financial injury include, but are not limited to:*The mortgage balance at the time of the foreclosure action was more than you actually owed.*Fees charged or mortgage payments were inaccurately calculated, processed or applied.*You were doing everything a modification agreement required but the foreclosure sale still happened.*The foreclosure action occurred while you were protected by bankruptcy.*A foreclosure proceeded on a military member in violation of Service members Civil Relief Act protections.More than 4 million letters were mailed to potentially eligible borrowers with request-forreview forms and instructions on how to complete and return them. The form lets you describe what you think went wrong. Simply answer the questions to tell your story, include any additional documents you think relevant and return the form by April 30, 2012.If you believe you are eligible and have not received a form, you can request one from (888) 952-9105, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (ET) and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET).For additional information and answers to basic questions about the review process, visit www.IndependentForeclosureReview.com. Reviews are conducted by independent consultants working under the direction of the federal regulators and may take several months to complete.You can learn more at www.occ.gov/ independentforeclosurereview.

SMART AND SAFE QUESTIONS WHEN MORTGAGE SHOPPING (NAPSA)-The bargains to be found in today’s buyer’s market are inspiring a new interest in getting the best home mortgage. Although people often live with their mortgage decision for 30 years, research shows that Americans spend more time considering a car purchase than evaluating a home mortgage. Taking time to prepare, and asking the right questions of your lender, can help you make a financially prudent decision. Here are some questions to consider:*How much can I afford? By entering income, debt and down payment information, home affordability calculators can help estimate how much home you can afford and what your monthly payments need to be. Be sure to consider monthly expenses such as association fees, utilities and property taxes.*How much should I consider for a down payment? A minimum down payment of 3 to 5 percent is generally required. If you put less than 20 percent down, government or private mortgage insurance may be needed. Private mortgage insurance can help you own a home sooner, and can generally be canceled when you reach 20 percent equity. *What is the interest rate and is it fixed? Shop around among several lenders to ensure the best rate. Be clear about whether the rate is fixed or adjustable. A rate lock protects you if interest rates rise while the loan is being processed. *Will my loan have any type of borrower assistance program or job loss protection? Mortgage insurance companies, such as Genworth Financial, offer no-cost borrower assistance programs and job loss protection that provides some peace of mind when you purchase a home. *Should I get prequalified? Yes. Your lender can informally qualify you for a loan by obtaining basic information on your income, debts and credit. Prequalifying means you can estimate how much you can borrow and make a realistic buying decision. *Does my credit score matter? It’s a good idea to review your credit report and clear up any old debts or inaccuracies before meeting with a lender. This may improve your score, which could improve the interest rate your lender offers. Keep in mind that the changes can take time to clear as well as reflect on the revised report.*What documents do I need to apply for a loan? The process is easier if you bring full documentation of personal finances, assets, employment history, current loan amounts and payments, credit card account numbers and income tax returns.

714 Hoosick Rd, Troy • 629-0243 FINANCIAL FOCUS Investors Can Learn Much From Super Bowl Teams We’ve just passed another Super Bowl season. Whether you’re a sports fan or not, you can learn something from the Super Bowl teams that you can apply to investing. • Choose a diversified mix of players. Super Bowl teams have good players at many different positions — players who tend to play well together. As an investor, you should own a variety of investments with different capabilities — stocks for growth and bonds for income — Christopher M. Reilly investments that complement one Financial Adviser another. Bui lding a diversified portfolio containing investments appropriate for your situation — stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs) and other vehicles may help reduce the effects of market volatility • Follow a “game plan.” Super Bowl teams create game plans maximizing their own strengths and exploiting their opponents’ weaknesses. You also can benefit from a game plan — a strategy to help you work toward your goals. This strategy may incorporate several elements, such as taking full advantage of your (IRA) and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, pursuing new investment opportunities, and reviewing your portfolio regularly, making sure it’s still appropriate for your needs. • Stay dedicated to your goals. Super Bowl teams have to overcome obstacles, such as injuries, bad weather and tough schedules. Political and economic turmoil can upset financial markets. But by owning a diversified mix of quality investments and following a long-term strategy tailored to your objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance, you can keep moving forward, despite “bumps in the road.” • Get good coaching. Super Bowl teams are well-coached. When trying to achieve many financial goals — a comfortable retirement, control over investment taxes and a legacy to leave your family — you, too, can benefit from strong “coaching.” As your “head coach,” you might choose a professional who can help you identify your goals and recommend an appropriate strategy to help you work toward them — and who can coordinate activities with your other “coaches,” such as your tax and legal advisors.

LITERACY VOLUNTEERS CONGRATULATES NEW CITIZENS Literacy Volunteers congratulates Elshekh Saad and Mariama Massaquoi, two English Language Learners who have become naturalized U.S. citizens. Sworn in on January 20 and 27, respectively, Mr. Saad and Ms. Massaquoi took the Oath of Allegiance at the United States District Court in Albany. The hour-long ceremonies began with welcoming remarks from the judge and elected officials, and included patriotic songs performed a cappella by guest vocalists. Certificates of Citizenship were presented to almost 60 people on each occasion. Mr. Saad, a native of Sudan, has been a student in the workplace literacy program at Blasch Precision Ceramics for four years. Ms. Massaquoi, who resided in Liberia prior to coming to America, participated in the English Literacy Civics program and is now learning to sew while improving her English skills each Saturday afternoon at the Sewing and English class in Rensselaer.All three programs are staffed and administered by Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County. Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County recruits and trains volunteers to provide individual and small group tutoring. A professional staff supports volunteer tutors, tutor trainers, planners, and board members who make the programs run. LVORC is an affiliate of Literacy New York and accredited by ProLiteracy America.
SAMARITAN HOSPITAL OFFERING POTENTIALLY LIFESAVING PROCEDURE Samaritan Hospital, an affiliate of Troy-based not-for-profit Northeast Health, is now offering coronary angioplasty, or PCI/percutaneous coronary intervention, bringing a potentially lifesaving procedure to Rensselaer County. Coronary angioplasty is used to open up narrowed or blocked coronary arteries to improve blood flow to the heart muscle. Angioplasty may be used to improve symptoms of heart disease, reduce damage to the heart muscle caused by a heart attack, and reduce the risk of death in some patients. In the event of a heart attack, when minutes count, having this potentially lifesaving procedure at Samaritan Hospital brings it closer to individuals in many of the communities the hospital serves, including residents in many parts of Rensselaer, Albany and Saratoga counties.
