EGCSD HOSTS BULLYING PREVENTION PROGRAM FOR SCHOOL COMMUNITY The East Greenbush Central School District will host Barbara Coloroso, an internationally recognized speaker, consultant and author on parenting and bullying. Mrs. Coloroso’s visit is intended to raise awareness of the issues surrounding bullying and help educate parents, students and staff on ways they can prevent bullying in our schools and community. A community forum, featuring Mrs. Coloroso, will be held on Thursday, March 24th, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., in the Columbia High School Auditorium (located on Luther Road in East Greenbush). During the school day on the 24th, Mrs. Coloroso will also present her anti-bullying message to the District’s schools. Additionally, at a Professional Development program scheduled for March 25th, she will instruct the District’s staff on identifying the signs and symptoms of bullying and provide guidance on the prevention of bullying in school. Mrs. Coloroso’s presentations is part of the District’s ongoing effort to provide a safe school environment that promotes dignity and respect, and is free from bullying, intimidation and harassment. In 2010 the Board of Education adopted a policy on bullying prevention and made it a District goal to provide programs and initiatives that deter bullying and promote tolerance and respect. Each of the seven schools within the District have programs in place to address bullying, and antibullying efforts. These topics have also been a focus of the District’s professional development. The Dignity for All Students Act, a New York State law that goes into effect in 2012, requires that all school districts develop procedures which create an environment free of discrimination and harassment and establish guidelines for training school personnel in these matters. Barbara Coloroso is an international bestselling author and, for the past 38 years, she has been recognized as an international speaker and consultant on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution and restorative justice. She has appeared on Oprah, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and NPR and has been featured in the New York Times, Time, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek, and other national and international publications. Her presentations will be paid for through grant money, professional development funds, and fundraising efforts coordinated by the East Greenbush Central School District’s Board of Education.

ANIMAL CRUELTY COALITION: THE FACTS Letter to the Editor: The Animal Cruelty Task Force was created in 2007 to “provide the police with a list of individuals who could be called upon to assist with investigations.” Regarding the concerns that coalition members were identifying themselves as “investigators,” the Legislature approved such designation in resolution G-287-09. The role and actions of the task force have never once exceeded the mission we were granted. The Legislature cannot point to any incident of harassment to the farming community. We have consistently operated professionally, with respect for our Charter, and New York law. The task force requested on several occasions a personal meeting with Mr. Ken Herrington, a legislator, who drafted the resolution rescinding our power, to ascertain and address his concerns. Co-founder and renowned retired New York State Trooper Susan McDonough wrote Mr. Herrington a letter reiterating our purpose and activities. We never received a response. With the exception of egregious cases, our first approach was always to educate rather than arrest. There have been several animal cruelty cases in Rensselaer County where we have been asked to comment on the application of the law, most recently the Bobby Clow case, where Clow shot a pet dog with a 44 magnum out of anger and revenge and was not prosecuted under Buster’s Law. Even the author of Buster’s Law, Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, was appalled at this misapplication of the law. Had we not met with the District Attorney’s office in the wake of the Skye Feathers case, where a pet horse was brutally stabbed to death, that case too would have been incorrectly prosecuted as a misdemeanor. Animal cruelty is a crime, and yes, an uncomfortable topic for many. But it is still a crime and needs to be addressed by individuals who thoroughly understand the law and how it should be applied consistent with legislative intent. It is located in the Agriculture and Markets Law rather than the Penal Code; consequently police are often not adequately trained in enforcing this law. The Department of Agriculture and Markets does not assist in animal cruelty investigations, and never has, contrary to the perception of at least one legislator who advised a concerned citizen that Ag. and Mkts. could assist police, now that the task force is defunct. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” We are proud of the ethical, above-board, hard work we have done. We will become incorporated and continue to work for the animals and the people who care about them, whether we have the backing of these elected officials or not. ~Valerie Lang, J.D., M.L.S. - Glass Lake

A host of family members, friends and government officials joined Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino (standing, right of center) and members of the Honor-A-Deceased Veteran Committee in commemorating the life and service of Navy Veteran John Melvin Hall. The late John Melvin Hall, who served aboard the USS Constellation and the USS Pittsburgh during more than two years in the United States Navy during World War II, was recently recognized by Rensselaer County’s Honor-A-Deceased Veteran committee and County officials. Hall was involved in a pair of historical nautical and naval rescue missions during his service aboard the USS Pittsburgh. The first rescue took place shortly after March 14, 1945 when his ship dashed to rescue the carrier USS Franklin and her crew while fighting against air attacks from Japanese land-based aircraft and eventually towing the seriously-damaged ship to safety. Then, on June 5, 1945, the USS Pittsburgh weathered violent typhoons southeast of the Ryukyu Islands, and, while no lives were lost, Hall sustained the scars from rescuing fellow sailors in chemical-soaked, burning waters, following a time when his ship was hit with waves large enough to destroy the port catapult carrying the float plane. For his service, Hall was authorized to receive the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with One Bronze Service Star, along with the World War II Victory Medal, Hall received his honorable discharge from the United States Navy on December 21, 1945. “Like so many of his generation John Hall took it upon himself to defend our nation and the rights we hold so dear by joining in the war effort as a member of the United States Navy where he bravely served,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino.

EMPTY BOWLS On Sunday, April 3, 2011, an Empty Bowls event to benefit the Heifer Project will be held at the Church of the Covenant United Methodist Church, Rte 43, near the intersection with Old Route 66 in Averill Park, NY.

The date and time is Sunday, April 3, 2011, from 12:00 2:00 pm. There will be a “Freewill Offering” for your bowl, soup and bread. You may bring your own bowl or you can use the church bowls.

TAKE ‘EM OUT IN ‘CUFFS! But…. don’t use my name. As a matter of fact, I’m not giving you my name either. I’m an anonymous caller. Whatever I tell you is the absolute truth. Now go and arrest them. Take their dog away from them and give them a hefty fine. They deserve it. Everybody on the block says so. After all, there are laws! You are the animal control officer. Go get ‘em. Click! They hang up. The call is made from a blocked number. How common is this type of communication? Very common. Messages such as this are also sent by email and left on the answering machine. They almost always mention that there are laws. That much is correct. There are laws. One important law says that there must be a witness to a violation of the law before a ticket is issued and the subsequent court appearance. If a dog is barking and keeping you up all night, running at large, destroying your property or attempting to attack your family, and you are a witness to it there is a legal procedure in place to address the problem. This is as it should be. Without it, false accusations and vendetta-based complaints would fill the courts. With no witness to substantiate the complaint the court would promptly dismiss the claim. A waste of time for all concerned! If you have a problem with your neighbor, it may be a good idea to talk to your neighbor first. If no remedy can be found, call your municipal animal control officer for information on other options. Give the officer your name and contact information and then tell the truth without embellishment. There are laws, but you can’t accomplish anything if your primary concern is hiding your identity. ~Catherine Crawmer, Animal Control Officer 477-8230

STORM WATER UPDATE (Introduction to Stormwater Pollution Prevention) Water pollution is generally thought of coming from spills, factories and catastrophic events. Unfortunately, a lot of water pollution, especially that is found in streams, lakes and rivers, comes from actions that we all do regularly. Much of the pollution now found in streams, lakes and rivers comes from runoff from rain and snowmelt. The rain flows along roofs, streets, sidewalks and yards until it runs into a catch basin or ditch and then flows through the stormwater system to the nearest downhill body of water. All that time, it is picking up dirt, bacteria and chemicals, which become water pollution. When the dirt and chemicals hit a stream, they don’t do anything dramatic like kill off the fish population – at least not right away. The stream can get silted in and cause flooding. The chemicals can cause algae to grow wild and turn the water or underlying rocks green. The bacteria can cause illness in people and animals drinking or swimming in the water. This is the first of a series that will help residents learn how they can help keep their waters clean, and explain programs that their local governments are doing to that end. ~The Rensselaer County MS4 Communities

DEACON QUINN TO LEAD STATIONS OF THE CROSS IN NEW LEBANON: On Friday, March 25th, the Seniors’ Ministry of Immaculate Conception/St. Joseph Parish, New Lebanon, will host their regular monthly get-together at 11:30AM, starting in the main church at 732 US Route 20, New Lebanon. Deacon Peter Quinn will lead the traditional Lenten prayer known as “Stations of the Cross,” and all in the community are invited to attend. Following the devotion, all will be welcomed at the parish hall for a hot lunch and a discussion about hair care. Because the weather caused a cancellation of the February program, stylist Deb McLaughlin returns this month to provide information about hair care as it is affected by the aging process. She will speak about cut, color and permanent wave techniques, as well as some of the effects of medication on the structure and growth of hair. Deb is the owner of Deb’s Shear Perfection salon in New Lebanon and has been a stylist for more than 20 years. Everyone from the community is invited for Stations of the Cross, lunch, and Deb’s presentation, at no charge. Please call Mary Linton, 518-733-0469, for more information.

“DUTCH BARNS - PRESERVATION AND ADAPTIVE REUSE” Greenbush Historical Society will sponsor Keith Cramer from the Dutch Barn Preservation Society who will present an overview and history of the New World Dutch Barn on Sunday, March 27th, at 2PM. The year 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of some successful Adaptive Reuse Projects of area early Dutch barns. One in Coeymans has been relocated and converted to a carpenter’s shop; another from Hoosick has been relocated and converted to a residence. Other early barns have been recently adapted to use as museum space and a studio. The efficient, heavy timber structural system adapted from Northern European precedents reflects the practical construction and engineering skills of the predominately Dutch immigrants who settled this area. The program is appropriately being held at “Pat’s Barn,” Rensselaer Technology Park, 110 Defreest Drive. The barn, now conference center, was built using ninety percent of the original barn located on the site. Construction was a 3-year project completed in September, 2009. Please join the Greenbush Historical Society on Sunday, March 27th, at 2 PM. Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.

RENSS. CO. DAIRY PRINCESS COMMITTEE IS LOOKING FOR THEIR 2011 PRINCESS Would you like to promote milk in Rensselaer County to both farm and non-farm audiences? This is a great opportunity to work within the dairy industry. My reign has allowed me to share with thousands of children and adults the importance of our dairy farmers and dairy products, not only in Rensselaer County, but throughout the State. I’ve had the opportunity to attend farm meetings and promote the 3-Every Day of Dairy message through weekly newspaper articles and visits to schools, fairs, festivals, community events, parades, senior centers, legislative meetings and so much more. Not only has this experience allowed me to grow as a person, it has given me many wonderful new friends. To be eligible for the program, you must be a young woman between the ages of 16 and 24, never been married and a resident of Rensselaer County. You should also be affiliated with the dairy industry (member of a dairy family, own your own cattle, the child of someone employed by a dairy-related industry, or sponsored by a local farm, etc.). The deadline for interested candidates is the end of March. If you would like to be considered, please send me an email as soon as possible. The Dairy Princess Committee will be celebrating its Annual Dairy Princess Pageant on Sunday, May 22. For more information, please contact me. ~Leah Remington,

It was disturbing to learn that the Rensselaer County Animal Protection Coalition has been disbanded by the county legislature. This is of particular concern as we are working with others in Washington County, writing a plan for our own anticruelty task force. This plan is being modeled after the Rensselaer County Task Force. Having spent a great deal of time studying the design, procedures, and actions of this task force, we feel compelled to weigh in on recent events. The Legislature “became concerned about coalition members identifying themselves as ‘investigators’ when looking into animal cruelty cases.” We find this puzzling as the Legislature approved this designation (Resolution G-287-09). The members of the Coalition are intelligent and knowledgeable professionals, committed to following the law. They have operated within the framework granted to them by the Legislature. They have educated police officers in recognizing and responding to animal cruelty cases. They have assisted the police with animal cruelty investigations and in doing so they have helped reduce the burden placed on law enforcement. Above all they have educated the public in recognizing and reporting animal cruelty. The general public greatly supports anti-cruelty initiatives. Anyone who feels that cruelty toward animals does not deserve the attention it is receiving here, needs only to look at the documentation of animal cruelty as a “bridge crime” to cruelty toward human beings. Our government leaders need to act against cruelty to animals and stop this progression in its initial stages. The Coalition has been highly effective in doing just that. District Attorney McNally has said that an “advisory group” will be created to fill the role the coalition was initially created to serve. In our opinion, the Coalition has served in this role exactly as it was created. It appears that the Legislature is more interested in advice than action. Perhaps the citizens of Rensselaer County should begin the search for political candidates who value action. We are confident that the Coalition will endure, will be even more effective, and will remain a model for the rest of us. ~Linda J.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? Letter to the Editor: On March 10, 2011, The Advertiser published one of the most disgusting letters that I ever read! Not the words used but what they expressed. The letter was from one of our county legislators assailing one of our county Judges. The charge of how could he think for himself when the Democratic Party had already told him how to think. Mr. Hammond, are we to believe that it is only the democrats committee that can think and that we should all step in line as we are told? It did not work for Hitler and for sure it will not work in America! How dare you, too think that it is un-American to think for ones self! The Judge was elected by the people, he was not appointed by a committee to serve an elite group! But for all person before his court! Does not the hypocrite oath mean anything to you? You should stop and reflect on the trend of the Nov 2010 election. The vote went against the democrats only because they held more seats. The vote was against men like you. The people are fed up with this scenario. Men holding positions in both town and county, School board members with spouses employed in that district. Getting their benefits and salary package from the people they sleep with. But that’s ok because the parties know best what the people need, so don’t worry about what they think their needs are. Keith Hammond said it was ok and he is a democrat! I have asked the question... How many employees of the Town/county know their job descriptions? It appears that you did not nor do not know! As one county legislator said, it took him eight years to learn the job! Yet he was quick to say he was the best person for the job? Judge Jacon is best for the job. He even knew the job before he took it! ~Paul T.

The Sand Lake Center for the Arts gallery will exhibit the monotype abstractions of Yvonne Welch from April 1 May 15. The images are pure abstractions, but are alive with the interplay of planes of pure color. The color planes abut, overlap, and penetrate each other producing a vital energy. An occasional brushstroke will reinforce the dynamism, but it is mostly the play of gorgeous tones that provides the sheer dance of the images. The gallery is located at 2880 NY 43, one half mile east of the blinking light in Averill Park, NY. Gallery hours are free and open Wed. & Fri. from 10am-12pm and Sundays from 1-3pm and by appt. A free, and open to the public artist reception will be held on Sunday, April 10th, from 13pm. Call 518-674-2007 or visit for more information.

FRIDAY FISH FRY APOLOGY Dear Neighbors and Friends, We wish to apologize to those of you who were turned away or experienced a long delay waiting for your meal at last week’s Friday Fish Fry(March 18). We sincerely appreciate your support and believe you deserve an explanation of what happened. The week before (March 11) we were very close to selling out, so we ordered 50% more fish for last week (March 18). Over the years, we have figured out what size the fish portions should be in order to allow us to deliver a reasonably priced meal in a timely fashion. We informed our supplier of the portion size, and up until last week, they had followed our instructions. Unfortunately, many of the fillets we received on the 18th were larger than they should be, but not large enough for us to cut and still provide a fair portion. Early in the evening, we decided to use them as they were delivered and hope that we had enough to serve all our customers. These larger fillets required longer cooking time and allowed for fewer fish per batch thus causing longer delays for those waiting for their meals. Because there were fewer servings per pound, we also ran out of fish. This resulted in many of our customers being told we would not be able to serve them. We deeply regret this. As you may be aware, we serve only fresh haddock that we bread ourselves. We cut all of our french fries and our coleslaw is freshly made. Our members make the chowder from scratch and the chicken breasts are prepared in our own kitchen. We work very hard to provide you with an enjoyable meal while you spend an evening with friends. We are working with our supplier to assure that this doesn’t happen again. We regret any inconvenience this incident may have caused you and hope that you will continue to join us in the future. ~The members of the South Schodack Fire Company

A GOD WHO SHARES OUR PAIN On Sunday, March 27, 2011, the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches will engage in thought about our God, “A God Who Shares Our Pain.” The Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen, in the sermon based on John 9:1-15, will discuss the reality that Gospel writer shares regarding how Christ used the blind man’s suffering to teach about faith and to glorify God. We live in a fallen world where acceptable and outstanding behavior is not always rewarded and bad behavior not always punished. In consequence, innocent people often suffer. The worldwide, human response to the devastation caused by the earthquake and resulting incredibly devastating tsunamis in Japan, witness how Jesus has empowered us with what we need in dealing with suffering in the world. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church will begin worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary, where Church Street meets Route 9J, one half mile south of the only traffic (caution) light in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Everyone is invited to worship at Stuyvesant Reformed church. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-School-Building at 43 Church Street (Route 20,) one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. Sunday school meets at 11 a.m. Everyone is welcome to worship at Nassau Reformed.

“SHOWER OF STOLES” “Shower of Stoles” on Display at First United Methodist Church, 1 Gilligan Road, E. Greenbush on Sunday, March 27th, from 11:003:00. This sample of 75 liturgical stoles, of over 1,000 stoles, is representative of the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people of faith. These religious leaders have served in almost 40 denominations and faith traditions. They come from six countries and three continents. This collection of stoles celebrates the gifts of LGBT persons who serve God, while lifting up those who have been excluded from service because of their sexual orientation. The collection tours around the country and we are proud to be able to display part of it to the community. They are here to help tell what it means to be a Reconciling Congregation. This “Shower of Stoles” is available for the public to view. For more information, call 4779693.

CLERK CONNOLLY PROTECTS DESSO FROM ETHICS COMPLAINT Letter to the Editor: Recently I detailed an ethics complaint filed against Councilman Desso for leaking confidential documents to the news media obtained as a result of his official position. The leak damaged my professional standing while “justifying” Desso’s firing of me and appointment of a politically connected Comptroller. On March 14th, Town Clerk Connolly used her official position to circumvent the duly appointed Ethics Board from exercising their responsibility to review that complaint. Incredibly, she returned it to me without recording it as an official public document, informing me that I had to send it to the home address of an Ethics Board member. Her action violated official responsibilities as the custodian of all public records in town, preventing the Ethics Board from receiving official communication sent Certified Mail, so they may perform their duties via the Town Ethics Law. Clerk Connolly’s abuse of her official position obstructed lawful governmental administration imposed on the Ethics Board. She acted to protect Councilman Desso from any action this Board might take. Imagine if Clerk Connolly were to take similar actions with official mail sent to the Planning, or Zoning Boards, IDA or any Board, Commission or Agency of Town government? No citizen should be expected to send official town correspondence to the home address of any town official. Not only is it improper and intrusive, but circumvents the creation of public records in connection with official business transmitted to town government. Her action would prevent access to public records under the Public Officers Law, Freedom of Information Act. I returned the complaint to the Clerk demanding she immediately notify the Ethics Board of the complaint which by law must be filed as a Public Record in the Town Clerk’s Office. I also asked the Town Board act to ensure Ms. Connolly does not pull a stunt like this again and that any complaints previously filed in her office have been provided to the Ethics Board. This may explain why this Board has never met once in its 15 months of existence. The Board incidentally and incredibly, includes the Town Clerk’s mother as a member. ~ Michael Strenka, Former NG Comptroller Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.
