GRAFTON STATE PARK TO HOST PROGRAMS OVER SPRING BREAK Why does the Bluebird sing? Where does the Brook Trout like to swim? These and many other exciting questions will be answered during Grafton Lakes Spring Break programs. The Trout Discovery and Stocking program is on April 10, Bluebirds with Bob is on April 13, and Habitat in a Jar will be offered on April 14. Participants will meet the Brook Trout we’ve been raising since October during our Trout Discovery program on Tuesday, April 10, from 1pm-3pm. Our river’s and stream’s “canaries in the coalmine,� the Brook Trout need clean and cool water to survive, so mountain streams like those on the Rensselaer Plateau are ideal habitat for this native fish. Indoor activities for families will be followed by kids helping us stock the fish in the park. Please bring a bucket with you. Program is $2/person or $5/ family, and proceeds help to fund the cost of our Trout aquarium. If you love to hear the birds singing their hearts out each Spring, then check out Bluebirds with Bob to learn about this beautiful New York State Bird on Friday, April 13, from 10am-12pm. Participants with suitable Eastern Bluebird habitat at their homes will be able to take a free nesting box while supplies last. The program includes children’s activities. Program is $2/person or $5/family. On Saturday, April 14, learn about the different habitat needs of various animals that call the Rensselaer Plateau home from 1pm-2pm before creating your own “habitat in a jar� to take home. The Plateau is home to river otter, beaver, turkey, and even black bear. Participants will create a miniature self-sustaining ecosystem in a jar. Program is $5/person. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required for all of the Spring Break programs by calling 279-1155. For more information about our upcoming programs, please visit www.nysparks.com

WHAT IS MDF

Home Improvement Guide

The term MDF, or medium-density fiberboard, started making its way onto home-improvement shows and among do-it-yourselfers, making it a popular material in recent years. MDF is formed with wood fibers or shavings mixed with glue or resin. Under heat or pressure, the MDF is made into a solid material. Because MDF is not made from slices of wood to form veneers, it will not have the traditional graining or knots associated with wood.MDF is often easy to cut, drill and manipulate because users will not have to work around grain or knots. But users should be careful to drill pilot holes before attaching MDF because it can split. Due to machine creation, MDF is generally uniform in thickness, which makes it consistent for many uses. It is important to note that sanding and cutting of MDF can cause the release of formaldehyde. Safety goggles and a mask are a must when using this product.

AUTOMOTIVE As legislative representatives of District 3, including the towns of Brunswick, Pittstown and Schaghticoke, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the March 13, 2012 legislative meeting. As expenses for social services increase, it is important to protect taxpayers from fraud and that the services are received by those needing assistance. Last year, legislators joined other elected officials across the state in asking for a state review of what we call chronic callers, persons who repeatedly call for ambulance for non-emergency situations. Based on anecdotal evidence from emergency service responders, we have learned persons repeatedly call for ambulance transport to hospital emergency rooms for non-emergency situations like a headache, basic aches and pains, cold, hunger or drunkenness. These transports are very costly, and are a drain on emergency services. We believe a review by the state would help discourage abuse of the system and protect taxpayers. County Executive Jimino also gave her annual State of the County speech and discussed the ongoing problems caused by unfunded state and federal mandates. We are proud of efforts to protect taxpayer savings, including a $900,000 savings in insurance costs, and over $400,000 in reductions in the legislative offices. We have also sought increased accountability to help reduce costs for mandates. The Legislature was also proud to welcome Henry Bauer as a representative of the City of Troy. Hank formerly served as City Court Judge and as City Councilman, and his wife Laura was elected three times to serve as legislator. Legislators approved a resolution supporting expansion of the DNA database across the state. An expanded DNA database helps bring those responsible for crime to justice, protects victims of crime and helps those wrongly accused. We were also happy to see state officials approve expansion of the DNA database just days after our meeting. One day before the meeting, Tom Walsh unveiled the latest addition to the Hall of Heroes, the area in the County Office Building recognizing the contributions of our veterans. The new addition lists those veterans recognized at the monthly Honor a Deceased veteran ceremonies each month. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, April 10, 2012. Residents are welcome to contact us at our legislative offices by writing to the Rensselaer County Legislature, 1600 7th Avenue, Troy NY 12180 or by e-mailing us via the official legislative website atwww.rensselaercounty.org.

Early spring seems to be a great time to connect with the absolutely wonderful nature photographs of Jerry Freedner. Photographs will be on exhibit from April 1st - May 15th. His intensity of vision is translated by the skillful manipulation of natural images which makes timeless the transitory nature of the world. As he states, “I have an enduring affinity with nature in all its forms. Within recent years my focus has begun to shift to the intense fragility of this world we share.” There will be a free and open to the public reception on Sunday, April 22, from 1 - 3pm. The gallery is open on Wed. and Fri. from 10 - 12noon, by appt. and during regularly scheduled events. Call 518-674-2007 or visit www.slca-ctp.org for more information. The Center is located at 2880 NY 43, Averill Park, NY.

66 Meats & Smokehouse Your Hometown Butcher

Updates from the March 20th Board meeting to share: • Shelly Levings from Questar provided an update on the Tax Levy Cap (TLC) and how it affects our District. Averill Park’s TLC is 3.95% based on the State’s eight step formula, not 2%. At or below this cap a simple majority vote (50% + 1 vote) is needed to approve the proposed budget. Any adopted budget above 3.95% would require a super majority vote (60% approval). If the adopted budget is voted down twice, a 0% TLC would be instituted. • The Board provided direction to the Superintendent regarding the inclusion of a Kindergarten Program in all budget scenarios at the TLC of 3.95% or higher. This was based on feedback received and the need to allow families to plan properly. • Budget scenarios above and at the TLC were presented by the Superintendent. All scenarios are available on the District website. It is important for the community to know the numbers and budget scenarios are evolving daily. For example, based on updates received over the last couple weeks, the budget gap at the 3.95% TLC has gone from $4.7 million to $3.3 million, and as of March 22nd, to $2.8 million. Hence why our budget calendar is set up to address the finer cost details in mid-March when a more accurate picture can be provided. A revised 3.95% TLC budget scenario, along with the implications of a 0% TLC were reviewed at the March 27th meeting. The final numbers from Albany should be defined by early April and we are discussing opportunities to realize savings with all of our bargaining units currently without a contract. Continued budget discussions will occur at the April 3rd meeting prior to budget adoption at the April 17th meeting. Please take the survey regarding the program level the community is willing to support, available on the District website under the Budget Corner. The survey will be available through Sunday, April 1st. The compiled results will be reviewed at the April 3rd meeting. Upcoming public meetings: George Washington School – Thursday, March 29th, at 6:30 pm Sand Lake Center for the Arts – Thursday, April 19th, at 7 pm Zion UCC Taborton – Monday, April 23rd, at 7 pm Please visit http://www.averillpark.k12.ny.us/ for additional information. ~ Averill Park Board of Education
