“AFTER THE FIRE: UNVEILING & THANKSGIVING” First United Presbyterian Church will hold a Community Celebration “After the Fire: Unveiling & Thanksgiving” on Sunday, May 20TH, from 3-5 pm at the church at 1915 Fifth Avenue in downtown Troy. On March 26, 2011, First United sustained an electrical fire that caused considerable smoke damage to its historic sanctuary and stained glass windows. At the time, the Troy Fire Department said the community came within minutes away from losing the entire building. For months, members worshipped in Fellowship Hall next door. The project involved careful reconstruction of period moldings and plasterwork. The May 20th event will include a brief service of thanksgiving followed by tours and refreshments. Many emergency personnel and volunteers helped save historic archives and furnishings following the fire. Members of First United decided to hold this event as a means to thank all for their outpouring of support. Ironically, First United’s current location between Grand and Fulton Streets resulted from the Great Troy Fire on May 10, 1862. The church, originally located on Sixth Avenue, was destroyed when a spark from a locomotive caught the church steeple on fire. By Christmas of that same year, the property on Fifth Ave. was obtained and a structure which now houses Fellowship Hall was completed. Over the years, the church on Fifth Avenue was the center of the abolitionist movement in Troy before the Civil War. Today, First United is a diverse and welcoming congregation that values social justice. The First United complex anchors the historic Fifth Avenue District in downtown Troy and has housed numerous nonprofit organizations over the years. Currently, Literacy Volunteers, Albany Presbytery, Music Together, and the Troy Children’s Chorus are among those who call First United home. For more information, visit or call 2722771.

LEGIS. APPRECIATE DECISION TO KEEP ‘BURGH POST OFFICE IN OPERATION Rensselaer County Legislators Harry Tutunjian and Hank Bauer said they are appreciative of a decision by the U.S. Postal Service to keep the North Troy Post Office in operation. Tutunjian and Bauer said keeping the post office open will help protect community character and ensure effective postal service to residents in Lansingburgh. “This is good news for Lansingburgh, and the many residents, customers and businesses who regularly rely on this post office for service,” said Tutunjian. Recently renamed the Martin G. Mahar Post Office after the former Troy mayor, the U.S. Postal Service had targeted the post office for closure last summer. In recent months, Tutunjian and Bauer have opposed the planned closure and supported community efforts to keep the post office open. The two legislators said closing the ‘Burgh Post Office would not have generated any significant savings and would have been an unfair cut in service. The Mahar post office is one of only two post offices in Troy, which has a population of over 50,000. “Closing the Mahar Post Office would have been unfair, given the fact that Troy has only two post offices serving a large population and an active business community,” said Bauer. Along with keeping the North Troy Post Office in operation, the U.S. Postal Service also decided to keep the historic and unique North Hoosick Post Office in operation. The County Legislature had adopted resolutions sponsored by Tutunjian and Bauer opposing the closure of the post offices.

Members of the community were given a tour of the newly refurbished Troy Boys and Girls Club, with work made possible through a generous donation by area businessman Scott Earl. Legislators Hank Bauer, at left, and Harry Tutunjian, at right, presented Earl with a commendation thanking him for the donation and support. The improvements include work on the swimming pool, gymnasium, locker rooms and offices at the Club, which is located on Seventh Avenue in downtown Troy near the County Office Building. Much of the work was made possible through a $2 million pledge by Earl. Work on the improvements started last year. Legislators Harry Tutunjian and Hank Bauer joined in the tour of the completed project on April 20. “This is an exciting day. The improvements to the Troy Boys and Girls Club will help the Club in its mission of providing a positive and fun place for kids,� said Tutunjian. “Community support is essential in keeping the Club, and the donation by Mr. Earl has made a real difference in updating and modernizing the Club’s facility,� added Bauer.

LEGISLATURE SAYS LIMITED PRIMARY SCHEDULE WOULD REDUCE LOCAL COSTS The Rensselaer County Legislature adopted a resolution calling on New York State to limit the number of primaries, saying the move will reduce costs for local governments, Legislator Harry Tutunjian and Hank Bauer announced. Tutunjian and Bauer sponsored a resolution calling on the state to limit the number of primaries to one in non-presidential years to help control costs for counties who are required to bear the cost of the elections. The resolution was introduced as the county will face at least double the costs for conducting a primary, due to three primaries being scheduled this year. The county is required to pay for a presidential primary, a primary for U.S. Senate and congressional offices in June and a state and local primary in late summer or early fall, along with costs for the general election in November. “It is unfair for counties who are already dealing with tough economic times to be asked to conduct and pay for three primaries. This situation has to be avoided in future years,” said Tutunjian. “Expanding the schedule of primaries is not expected to result in more voter participation. In fact, the expanded schedule is probably going to result in more confusion and frustration for voters,” added Bauer. The April 24 presidential primary saw very low turnout. County cost for the April 24 primary was $40,000, not counting staff expenses. Turnout is expected to be about 6 percent countywide, with 1569 total votes cast at 63 polling places across the county. In Troy, only 208 voters turned out. Along with limiting the number of primaries in non-presidential years to one, both Tutunjian and Bauer said that in presidential years, primaries can be limited to two, one for presidential contests and one for federal, state and local races.

WOLFE EARNS CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR STUDENT EXCELLENCE at OSWEGO Adam Wolfe of Troy, an honors program dual major in journalism and economics at SUNY Oswego, has received the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence, the highest student recognition through the State University system. Five SUNY Oswego students were among the 257 honorees at 64 SUNY institutions across New York state recognized for high grade-point average and extraordinary contributions to the campus and community. Students graduating between June 2011 and May 2012 were eligible. SUNY Chancellor’s Award recipients were honored in an April 4 ceremony in Albany. Editor-in-chief of The Oswegonian student-run weekly newspaper and chief justice of the Student Association, Wolfe is a board member of Auxiliary Services, former Student Association senator and tutor for students in economics courses. Wolfe has won top awards in economics and in the journalism program. He also served as an environmental reporter for WRVO-FM, performed with an improvisational comedy troupe, wrote a comprehensive survey of Student Association legislation since the 1960s and assisted three journalism faculty members in research about domestic violence coverage.

COUNTY COMBATS SALE/DISTRIBUTION OF SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino has released the County’s plan of action to halt the sale of the potentially deadly synthetic cannabinoid products. These substances, generally referred to as “synthetic marijuana”, consist of plant material coated by chemicals that mimic the effects of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. These products are being sold as a “legal alternative” to marijuana in convenience stores, smoke shops, and tobacco stores with brand names such as “Spice”, “K2”, “Mr. Nice Guy”, and “Galaxy Gold.” The State Health Department has banned the sale of the dangerous products through the Commissioners order. State and Federal representatives are currently pursuing legislation to make the products illegal. According to the New York State Department of Health these are powerful drugs that when used can causes severe adverse reactions, including death and acute renal failure, and commonly cause: increased heart rate, paranoid behavior, agitation and irritability, nausea and vomiting, confusion, drowsiness, headache, seizures, and loss of consciousness. Due to the potentially deadly effects of the chemicals contained in these products, the New York State Health Commissioner has prohibited the sale and distribution of these products within New York State. To prevent the sale or distribution of synthetic marijuana in Rensselaer County the County Executive has established a working group including staff from the County Executive’s Office, the County Health Department, Rensselaer County STOP-DWI, The Sheriff’s Department, and local law enforcement agencies from throughout the County. The working group is tasked with educating all businesses to the required prohibition of the sale and distribution of the products. “I want to thank all of the partners in local governments as well as the participating law enforcement agencies offering their assistance in keeping these dangerous products out of the hands of our youth. I also call upon all residents to keep a watchful eye and report any shop or store selling these products. That phone call could save a life,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino. Residents seeing these products available for sale at shops and stores are urged to alert authorities by calling the Sheriff’s Rensselaer County Drug Tip Line at 518-270-0128.

MAY IS NATIONAL MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH According to the 2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 20% of U.S. adults reported having a mental illness in the previous year. A similar percentage of children (one in five) are affected by mental health problems, and three-fourths of all mental illnesses begin by age 24. As a mental health problem progresses and conditions worsen, treatment becomes more challenging; the economic cost of mental illness increases due to job loss and lost productivity, and people are at an increased risk for suicide. Every day, approximately 90 Americans take their own life (one every 15 minutes) and there are an estimated 8-25 attempted suicides for every suicide death ( Help is available. Just like diabetes or heart disease, mental illness is a medical illness, and for many, treatments have proven to be effective. However, early identification and intervention is important. For help, call the numbers listed below: Samaritan Hospital Outpatient Mental Health - 271-3554 Samaritan Hospital Crisis Unit – 271-3540 Rensselaer County Unified Services - 270-2800 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 1-800-273-TALK (8255) For Support for Survivors of Suicide Loss – 791-1544 Submitted by Rensselaer County Suicide Prevention Task Force

What is Lymphedema And How Is It Treated? LYMPHEDEMA is the accumulation of a protein rich lymph fluid which typically gets trapped between the skin and the muscle with the connective tissues due to a dysfunctional operating lymphatic system. Most commonly noted in the extremities, with one extremity being larger than the other. Lymphedema can, however, occur in the groin, head and Submitted by trunk. Lymphedema has multiple causes, primary or congenital (being born with the Sara Chauvot Physical Therapist disease). Secondary lymphedema is due to injury/damage as a result of cancer and or cancer treatments, surgeries, tumors, thermal burns, and repeated infections such as cellulitis to name a few. Lymphedema has four stages; ranging from latency, meaning the individual shows no signs but is at risk due to factors listed previously; reversible stage, the limb demonstrates pitting edema but may spontaneously subside with treatment; irreversible stage, limb size has increased and the edema is nonpitting with skin that has become thicker/ fibrosis; lymphostatic elephantiasis, limb size has continued to increase, skin is fibrotic with an orange peel effect, and recurrent cellulitis infections are common. There is currently no cure for lymphedema. However, once diagnosed with Lymphedema by a physician, the next step is to seek out a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT). Treatment for lymphedema includes patient education and Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), which includes manual lymph drainage (MLD) techniques to activate working lymphnodes and open lymphatic fluid pathways followed by application of mechanical compression bandages to control and reduce the amount of fluid in the limb. Upon completion of CDT, the patient should be independent with self-MLD and compression bandage and/or compression garment application for ongoing management.

LAWN • GARDEN• HOME GET YOUR OUTDOOR SPACES READY FOR SUMMER LIVING (StatePoint) There’s no better place than your own backyard for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. And there’s no better time than summer to spruce up your space. If you’re looking to upgrade a humdrum yard into something special, here are some things to consider: Comfort: Trees and awnings aren’t just great adornments for your yard; they provide much needed shade for you to sit outdoors comfortably and safely. Avoid summer mosquito bites by placing birdbaths and other standing water structures far from lounging and eating areas. Install LED yard lighting for night, which is less likely to attract mosquitoes than incandescent lights. Safety: When planning your space, make

safety a top priority. Since evenings are prime-time for summer entertaining, lighting is an essential safety measure. Start by considering where you need to increase visibility. Choose postmounted lanterns near driveways and wall-mounted lanterns next to doors for ease of access and to welcome guests. If underground wiring is required, consult an electrician or experienced landscape lighting contractor. For deck stairs or terraced paths, don’t forget step lights to aid in navigation. And thoroughly check outdoor railings, steps, decks and porches to make sure they are steady and that no nails or boards have come loose. Beauty: Your yard is an extension of your home, so don’t let design and style fall by the wayside when planning its look. For a touch of natural beauty, consider planting a flower garden to attract butterflies and humming birds. Capture the nighttime loveliness of water features like ponds with LED lights specially built for underwater illumination.More information on landscape lighting can be found at or

HELP FOR YOUR BEST LAWN AND YARD EVER (NAPS)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news for homeowners who want the grass to grow greener on their side of the fence. Throughout May, lawn, garden and equipment experts will provide free, one-on-one advice on everything from how to control pests and finally win the battle against weeds to troubleshooting a lawn mower that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help everyone who calls and take as long as necessary to get homeowners the answers they need,â&#x20AC;? says Trey Rogers, an internationally known expert on lawn and yard care and leader of the hotline, which is sponsored by Briggs & Stratton Corporation. For example, if your grass is brown or dying where it should be green, he advises, there may be a simple solution. 1. Can you blame it on the dog? The nitrogen in dog urine can burn your lawn and cause a widespread brown patch problem. You can create a special gravel or mulch area and train Fido to go there. 2. Is your mower blade dull? Dull blades tear rather than cleanly cut the grass, which can weaken and damage the lawn. Have the blade sharpened once a year. 3. Did you spill fertilizer or overfeed your lawn? Too much fertilizer is a well-known grass-burning culprit. Always follow package instructions when applying fertilizer. If your spreader drops too much in one place, water that spot on the lawn generously. 4. What about too much water? If you overwater or if water pools in certain areas on your lawn, you can drown the grass roots, causing areas to die out. Survey your lawn for dips you want to avoid dousing.

5. How do I grow grass in the shade? In deep shade, put down mulch instead. In partial shade, seed the area in the spring and fall, when leaves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t block the sunlight. From May 1 to 31, anyone can get a free online or phone consultation with a lawn, garden or equipment expert on any problem by visiting or calling 1-866-YARDTIPS (1-866-927-3847). Photo submissions are welcome if the problem is difficult to describe. In addition, every Friday during the month of May, experts will be available for live chats to share information more broadly with homeowners. The top lawn and garden questions will be posted on the website,, where you can also find expert advice and information related to yard care and equipment. The Yard Smarts Hotline is sponsored by Briggs & Stratton, the largest maker of engines for outdoor power equipment. If getting your yard in the best shape ever isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough motivation to check out the hotline, the company will give away a $300 gift certificate each week to one homeowner to purchase a new lawn mower or other needed yard care equipment.

The Grafton Community Library, located at 2455 NY Route 2, will be the site of a multi-sale event on Saturday, May 19.

L - R: Brigham Logue, Olivia Logue, Courtney Luskin, ShiAnn Faluszczak and Kendra Davis The Regional 4-H Hippology contest was recently held in Rensselaer County and coordinated by Columbia County Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE). Many Thanks to Placid Hills Stable of Brunswick for hosting the judging component of the contest. Hippology is a competitive event that tests 4-H membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; horse industry knowledge through horse judging, a written exam, equipment identification and interactive stations on feeds, diseases, physiology, breeds and uses. This region encompasses 9 counties in the Capital District area. Thanks goes out to our Rensselaer County Coaches Charlene Schermerhorn and Jaclyn Paquette as well as the many county and regional volunteers who assisted with the facilitation of the contest. Many practices and homework assignments were given in the past 3 months getting members ready for the event. Rensselaer County members were on mixed county teams and members competed as Novice, Juniors and Seniors. Our novice member was Kendra Davis who worked with a 4-H Teen mentor, Olivia Logue. The Junior Team consisted of two Rensselaer County members-ShiAnn Faluszczak and Brigham Logue as well as two Columbia County members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Vidar and Ashley Pirrone. This combined junior team placed 2nd with ShiAnn placing 2nd, Brigham 4th, Ashley 6th and Vidar 7th Individually. All 4 juniors have qualified to represent the region at the State Hippology Contest which will be held at the State Fair at the end of August. One Rensselaer County senior member, Courtney Luskin also was on a combined county team which was comprised of Kassie Hetherly of Albany County, Arhianna Fleres and Victoria Subik both of Fulton/Montgomery. This combined senior team placed 2nd and Kassie placed 1st, Arhianna 3rd, Courtney 6th and Victoria 7th individually. They all will also be representing the region at the State Hippology Contest. This event allows a great venue for challenging youth to sharpen their teamwork skills as well as their Horse Industry knowledge. Another benefit to the event is providing an environment where youth from different counties can get to know each other and start developing life long networks. Thanks one more time to our coaches, parents and volunteers who made the practices and contest possible. For information about this and other 4-H Programs, contact your respective Cornell Cooperative Extension office. CCE is an EOE and adheres to the ADA.
