TRIP, INC OPENS THE DOOR TO HELP HOMEOWNERS AT RISK OF FORECLOSURE Pre-apps due by July 22, 2011 Troy Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (TRIP, Inc) announced that it has been selected by NeighborWorks America in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help promote the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program (EHLP) in the state of New York. Congress provided $1 billion dollars to HUD, as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, to implement EHLP. The program will assist homeowners who have experienced a reduction in income and are at risk of foreclosure due to involuntary unemployment or underemployment, due to economic conditions or a medical condition, and are at least 90 days delinquent on their mortgage as of June 1st, 2011. Under EHLP guidelines, eligible homeowners can qualify for an interest free loan which can bring the homeowner current and pay a portion of their monthly mortgage for up to two years, up to $50,000. The EHLP program will pay for homeowners’ missed mortgage payments and past due charges including principal, interest, and escrowed taxes, and insurance. EHLP is expected to aid as many as 2,633 distressed borrowers in New York State. “The Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program will potentially make it possible for struggling New York homeowners to receive some much needed assistance in paying their mortgages,” stated Bobbi Carter, Director of the TRIP NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center. “There is a very short window of opportunity for homeowners to apply. We must receive all Pre-applications by JULY 22, 2011.” Capital District homeowners seeking EHLP assistance should visit to download the pre-application or call (518) 690-0020 x 228. Across the state, homeowners may visit or call toll-free (855) 346-3345 for other agencies participating in the program.

Members of the Rensselaer County Legislature are seeking a review of safety conditions on a section of State Route 7 in the Town of Hoosick that has been the scene of numerous accidents, Vice Chairman of the Legislature Stan Brownell and Legislator Lester Goodermote announced. The section of Route 7 legislators would like to be reviewed is the same stretch of road where a propane tanker truck crashed after leaving the highway. Just last month, a passenger bus that was carrying college athletes also had an accident in the same vicinity. Legislators approved a resolution seeking a review of lighting, speed conditions, visibility and signage, along with other factors on the stretch of Route 7. The stretch of State Route 7 is between the Bennington Battlefield Motel and the intersection of Routes 7 and 22. “We have been contacted by residents who live in the area and motorists who regularly drive that section of State Route 7. They are concerned about safety and travel conditions and a review of that section is needed,” said Goodermote. “Route 7 is a major thoroughfare in Rensselaer County, and used by many residents and businesses. It is important that we ensure the road is safe and accessible,” added Brownell. The County Legislature approved a resolution requesting the review by state DOT at the July 12 legislative meeting. The request will be sent to state DOT, the governor and representatives of Rensselaer County in the State Legislature. At the July 12 meeting, legislators also recognized members of the fire and ambulance agencies who responded to the scene of the propane tanker accident. Brownell, Goodermote and other legislators praised volunteers for their quick response, which helped avoid any loss of life.

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society’s “Save-A-Bull” program is one of the fresh ideas for which people can vote this month in Pepsi’s Refresh Everything Project. The Humane Society receives more pit bulls than any other type of dog and they typically take longer to get adopted than other breeds. A group of volunteers has come together to address the problem of pit bull overpopulation and to educate the public about the breed. Save-a-Bull is designed to help correct misconceptions about the pit bull breed and to address the problems associated with receiving so many unwanted pit bulls. However, the Society has no funding to support the program and thus is asking supporters to vote for the program in order to receive $25,000 from Pepsi. Voters can visit to vote. Thirty percent of all dogs brought to the Humane Society every year are Pit Bulls. “Any time you have so many dogs of a single breed, it is cause for concern,” said Executive Director Brad Shear. “This program will help reduce the number of pit bulls in need, keep dogs in their homes and find new homes for dogs that need them. It addresses the problem on every front.” As of Tuesday, the Humane Society was in 11th place nationally, but they need supporters to vote every day so their idea will be funded and dogs throughout the Capital Region will be helped. Individuals can gain additional votes by entering codes from yellow Pepsi caps into the website’s “Power Vote” system. Voting continues throughout the month of July.


LEGIS. SEEK PROTECTIONS AGAINST ELECTRONICS BENEFIT CARDS FRAUD Members of the Rensselaer County Legislature are seeking additional protections against potential fraud and abuse through electronic benefits cards used to trigger public assistance benefits. Legislators said they would like county and state officials to review existing fraud detection systems to ensure taxpayers are protected and determine if additional measures are needed to be taken to stop abuse. The resolution follows a case where $6.1 million may have been stolen through fraud involving electronic benefits cards. The cards were allegedly traded for cash at four stores in Albany County, with recipients involved in the scheme later obtaining new cards after reporting they were stolen or replaced. There have been other instances across the state where EBT cards have been traded for cash or sold. “The recent cases of fraud involving electronic benefits cards show there is a need for increased vigilance to keep taxpayers protected. We want a full assessment to be made to ensure public assets are adequately safe-guarded,” said Legislator Lou Desso, chairman of the Legislature’s Social Services Committee. Legislators want county and state officials to review existing fraud detection measures and ensure there are adequate safeguards against EBT fraud. Legislators also want county officials who administer public assistance benefits to report on whether additional safeguards need to be employed. Legislators said the instances of fraud and abuse demonstrate why additional protections may be needed to safeguard against fraud. On June 2, ten people were charged with defrauding the system of $150,000. “The cost for providing social services in the county is already reaching record levels. We have to weed out any instances of fraud and abuse to protect taxpayers and ensure the services go to those who are truly in need,” said Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid. A resolution seeking additional protections against potential fraud from electronic benefits cards was considered at the June 14 legislative meeting.

AVERILL PARK YOUTH SOCCER LEAGUE TRYOUTS The Averill Park Youth Soccer League will hold tryouts for its competitive soccer teams on Tuesday, July 19th, and Wednesday, July 27th, at 6PM on the fields between Miller Hill and Sand Lake schools. These teams typically play during the winter and spring months, with a few teams also playing fall competitive soccer. These teams involve a higher commitment and level of play than our recreational programs and have access to professional coaching during the season. Teams range from 8 and under (6, 7 and 8 year olds) to Under 19. To determine what age group your child falls in, ask whether he or she will still be “under 8” or “under 10” etc, as of August 1, 2011. After the July tryouts, your child may be selected to play on one of our travel teams, which will require a commitment. If you are interested in having your child tryout, but cannot make either of these dates, please send your contact information, your child’s name, age and birth date to and you will be contacted prior to the next tryouts. Any questions should be directed to that same email, as should requests to have your child evaluated to “play up” at the next age group.

Summer vacation, that special time of year for all children, is upon us and you still have the chance to make it memorable for a New York City child! Thanks to the many families in the Albany area and throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada, more than 1.7 million New York City children from lowincome neighborhoods have enjoyed free summer experiences in suburban and small town communities through The Fresh Air Fund. The Fund is currently seeking more families to give innercity children a two-week experience this summer. By volunteering as a host family for the Friendly Town program, you can help give a child a break from the heat and noise of the crowded city streets. “Being able to run around and be outside is a freeing experience for her,” says one Fresh Air host about her Fresh Air child. “I still enjoy watching her face as she takes joy in the simple things, like roasting a marshmallow or jumping into the lake.” You can read about the special experiences of other Fresh Air children and hosts by visiting our website,, which includes photos, stories, videos and other helpful information. To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Tenniel Hansen at 518-451-9611, or call The Fresh Air Fund at (800) 367-0003 or check out

ARE YOU TROUBLED BY SOMEONE ELSE’S DRINKING? AL-ANON CAN HELP Alcoholism is a worldwide issue causing problems not only for the drinker but for everyone connected with that person as well. Al-Anon Family Groups offer help and hope through free, weekly support meetings for family and friends of alcoholics. Members share their experience, strength, and hope in dealing with the frustrations and feelings of helplessness caused by a loved one’s problem drinking. People in Al-Anon use first names only, and confidentiality and anonymity are carefully protected. Newcomers are relieved to learn there is a place where they can share their troubles without being judged. Al-Anon members use the Twelve Steps adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous to face challenges and find spiritual support and recovery from the effects of the disease of alcoholism. They find solutions that lead to serenity and peace of mind, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen is a part of Al-Anon specifically for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. For more information about Al-Anon and Alateen in the Capital District, call 518-292-0577 or visit

WHAT IS CELIAC DISEASE? Celiac disease is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine, preventing it from absorbing parts of food. When a person has Celiac disease, his or her immune system attacks the villi, or areas along the lining of the small intestine, whenever foods that contain gluten are eaten. The damage that results from such an attack makes it hard for the body to properly absorb nutrients, causing many people to become malnourished regardless of how much food is consumed. Found in foods such as bread and pasta, gluten is a protein that can be avoided if people adopt a gluten-free diet. Such a diet means avoiding foods, beverages and even medications that contain wheat, barley, rye, and possibly even oats. While a glutenfree diet won’t cure Celiac disease, it can cause the symptoms to disappear and help the villi heal. Celiac disease is often mistaken for irritable bowel syndrome, so if such a condition has been diagnosed but nothing seems to be working, men and womenshould request they be tested for Celiac disease.

IS THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM BETTER? There has long been debate about the quality of the healthcare system in the United States versus other countries, including Canada and European nations. Some say the American system is better, while others think better care is received through a universal or government-sponsored system. In terms of cancer diagnosis and survival, the U.S. may have the advantage. According to data published by the National Center for Policy Analysis, Americans have better survival rates for common cancers. Breast cancer mortality is 52 percent higher in Germany and 88 percent higher in the U.K. than in the U.S. Breast cancer mortality is also 9 percent higher in Canada than in the U.S. This could be because American women have better access to preventive screening methods than Canadians and others. Eighty-nine percent of middle-aged American women have had a mammogram, compared to 72 percent of Canadians.

The “building crews” will rotate through areas at the “construction”, site which include crafts, science, stories and activities. At the Briefing for the Day, we learn our Bible verse through drama and music. Break Time will feature unique snacks and fun outdoor recreation activities. Hard hats will be provided, of course! Kids Under Construction runs from Monday, August 1, to Friday, August 5, from 9-12:30. Our dedicated and seasoned staff will guide children through all the phases of construction! Our Parish Nurse will tend to any construction “accidents.” The cost for the week is $20 per camper and there is a Celebration on Friday evening for families.
