HYPNOSIS IS AN EASY, EFFECTIVE, AND INEXPENSIVE WAY TO QUIT SMOKING AND IT’S GUARANTEED FOREVER! The single most important thing you can do for your health, your life and your family is to STOP SMOKING now! Each cigarette you smoke robs you of TEN minutes of life, and adds the threat of disease and disability to what life remains. With each puff of smoke, you are inhaling over 4,000 chemicals.....including arsenic, ammonia, cyanide, acetone, DDT…. 43 of these toxins are known to cause cancer. Research has proven that your body benefits from quitting no matter how long you have smoked. Your body can even repair some of the damage that may have begun; you will begin to function more efficiently; think more clearly; your concentration and memory improves; you’ll have more energy, strength and stamina; you’ll feel better, look better, look years younger, and live much longer! Hypnosis is a process of deep breathing, relaxation techniques, guided imagery, visualization and autosuggestion that allows you to change your habit at your subconscious/unconscious level of mind and from that point you just think and act like a non-smoker. National statistics indicate that hypnosis is effective in about 90% of the cases, while the nicotine patch is effective less than a third of the time. I have helped thousands of people become non- smokers easily and effortlessly for only $76 and it is guaranteed for life! If you ever start smoking again…6 months or 6 years later…you can return for FREE reinforcement Margaret Kaufman, AAS, BA, Certified Clinical Medical Hypnotherapist and American Lung Association Smoking Cessation Facilitator will present a Stop Smoking Program on Wednesday, April 13, 6:30 - 9:00 PM at VENTURE INWARD, 568 Columbia Turnpike, Suite 16, East Greenbush, NY.

SPECIAL STORY TIME FOR GENET FIRST GRADER Genet Elementary student Sarah Pettis and her first grade class were treated to a special story time when Sarah’s father made a guest “appearance� to the class in February. Sarah’s dad, Sgt. Brandon Pettis, is serving overseas in Kuwait. Sgt. Pettis contacted Sarah’s teacher, David Greene, and asked if he could provide Sarah and her class with a video of him reading a story. Mr. Greene agreed and Pettis recorded a DVD of himself reading “The Little Engine That Could.� Sarah anxiously awaited its arrival, but months passed and no video arrived. Finally, on February 14, a package marked “USO� showed up in Mr. Greene’s classroom. It was the video, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Greene played the DVD for Sarah and the class, who eagerly watched as Sgt. Pettis appeared on the screen and began reading. “A little steam engine had a long train of cars to pull...� “All the kids eyes were glued to the video,� said Greene. “They hear Mr. Greene read all the time, but to hear a soldier read was a totally different story.� Sgt. Pettis took advantage of the USO supported United Through Reading Military Program to create and send his video. Included was a copy of “The Little Engine That Could� for Sarah to take home with the video. The program provided the DVD, book, recording equipment and shipping free of charge. �Sarah was proud of her dad and pleased to see him,� added Greene. Despite being stationed overseas, Greene says Pettis has remained active in his daughter’s education. Greene helps parents like Pettis stay informed on their children’s learning through emails and regular updates to a webpage Greene maintains on the school’s website. He also publishes an online newsletter for parents called the “Green Gazette�. Greene says having information about his classroom activities available online has proven valuable for parents, especially those living apart from their children. “It gives everybody access to what their children are learning, whether they are across the country, across the world, or across the street,� he said.

E.G. TOWN BOARD TO APPOINT AMBULANCE COMMISSIONERS In response to an audit of the East Greenbush ambulance district, which was conducted last year by the State Comptroller, the East Greenbush town board recently approved and submitted to the State Comptroller a Corrective Action Plan that includes, among other things, the appointment of ambulance commissioners. Such ambulance commissioners would be responsible for day-to-day administration of the ambulance district, as well as advising the town board on policy development and other discretionary issues related to the operation of the ambulance district, including the district’s contract for ambulance and emergency-medical service with W. F. Bruen Emergency Squad, Inc. Any East Greenbush resident who has a background in the delivery of ambulance and/or emergency-medical service and is interested in serving as an ambulance commissioner, is urged to contact me at:; please include a resume. Other highlights of the Corrective Action Plan include: 1. Retention of outside council to advise the town board on all legal matters related to the administration of the ambulance district; 2. Retention of an outside consultant to advise the town board on the provision of ambulance and emergency-medical services as it relates to periodic contract negotiation with Bruen; and 3. Conducting an annual, independent audit of the ambulance district’s finances. Town Comptroller Jim Breig did an outstanding job in advising the town board of the State Comptroller’s audit findings, and ensuring that they were properly addressed in the town’s Corrective Action Plan in a timely manner. ~Rick Matters, East Greenbush Town Councilman

An Education for Life W W W





TIMING IS EVERYTHING Letter to the Editor: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Averill Park strikes again. Mere moments after eliminating the decades-old childcare program, a resource THOUSANDS of parents and children have utilized and supported through the years, the District Administration proposes the restoration of the single administrative position subject to elimination as a Level 1 reinstatement! Add an assistant superintendent position back before the French program, elementary teachers, librarians, Social Studies and Math teachers in the High School and extracurricular activities? Before keeping the buildings and grounds available for use by the community, aka TAXPAYERS‌community groups who pay for using the District facilities? Then have the unmitigated gall to stick their hands out for another $700,000 for 10 new buses because they have 100,000 miles on some? As ridiculous as it sounds, if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it. Thank goodness the Board deferred that until the fall. Talk about being out of touch with the community AND reality! As the leaders of this school district, the top priority MUST be what benefits our children the most with the resources available, not 2% or 5% or 11% additional tax dollars. Don’t preach about programs and our kids in one breath and in the next, add in an administrator and 10 new school buses! Is it REALLY all about the kids with the current administration? You decide. ~ Dori Salisbury, Averill Park 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.

THANK YOU TO THE HEROES OF WYNANTSKILL UFSD Letter to the Editor: I attended the Wynantskill Board of Education meeting at Gardner-Dickinson on March 17. After reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, “Liberty and Justice for all”, a large group of Kindergarten parents wanted “Justice”. They asked to have the public comments, last on the agenda, moved up so they could get home to their children. These parents were looking for answers, why their beloved Kindergarten teacher was not in school, they demanded to know where she was for two weeks. What happened to her? Why wasn’t a letter sent home telling parents what happened. The Kindergarten children were devastated (they had substitute teachers, but they wanted their beloved teacher). The rumors were the teacher was sick the first week, second week rumors the teacher had cancer, she was terminally ill, she was in the hospital, one little girl was writing her teacher get well cards not knowing that her teacher wasn’t sick at all. Parents and children continued to be upset, some not wanting to return to school, plus their classroom was changed around which they did not like. Parents certainly deserved answers. The superintendent seemed to talk in circles while her lawyer, secretary and the Board of Education took notes. It was evident to me the superintendent was on the hot seat big time; too many unanswered questions coming from every parent. These young parents (heroes of education), which the school district and community should be proud of, continued on with questions, never letting up on the reason they were there. They did not get their answers. They conducted themselves in a mature, professional matter. What kind of support did the teacher get from the school’s administration, didn’t sound like any with the unanswered questions. We need more “heroes of education” like this group of intelligent, strong believers who know what’s right and what’s wrong. I congratulate these fine parents for speaking their minds and protecting their children and their teacher. As one parent said, not once but twice, “the administration really dropped the ball on this one”! Fourteen days, the teacher is out, still no answered questions. ~Margaret Beckmann, Troy 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.

ARMY RESERVE SGT. ZDUNCZYK RETURNING TO U.S. AFTER DEPLOYMENT Greetings and best wishes to everyone in the City of Rensselaer. As Rensselaer’s representative to the County Legislature, I am happy to report to you on the actions taken by the Rensselaer County Legislature at our March 8, 2011 meeting. Along with the meeting, I joined several dozen residents on March 14 at a public hearing regarding a proposed asphalt production plant at the Port of Rensselaer. Residents had concerns regarding noise, traffic and emissions from the site and expressed their feelings to city residents. I have also expressed my concerns regarding the proposed asphalt plant, and the potential impacts on nearby neighborhoods. In particular, the potential impacts on the Fort Crailo neighborhood and areas in East Greenbush would be considerable. The city should ensure that all residents have the opportunity to make comments on this proposed project. I believe further public meetings on the topic would be useful and want to help ensure a complete review of all issues brought forward by residents related to the project. At the March 8 meeting, County Executive Kathleen Jimino delivered her annual State of the County address. The County Executive detailed her concerns with rising state and federal mandates and the ongoing efforts to reform mandates. The Legislature adopted a new series of resolutions, including one calling for the federal government to allow counties to choose which non-mandated Medicaid services can be provided. The Legislature has worked hard to reduce costs in recognition of the tough economic times. The Legislature supervised a rebid of the county insurance contract, which will save the county $900,000 over the next three years. There was also a savings in the legislative offices, totaling $130,000 in 2010 and $160,000 in 2009. The recent increases in gasoline prices have hurt working families and small businesses. We asked the State Attorney General to review the recent increases in gasoline prices and take steps to protect residents. Such reviews can make a difference in protecting against future price increases, especially as we approach the busy summer vacation months. The next regular monthly meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, April 12, 2011.

The Town Board hired Tony Germano as part-time Comptroller. He has extensive experience in town government including a stint as Town Manager of Glenville. The transition has been smooth as he rolls up his sleeves and continues the work of bringing town financial records fully up-to-date. The Brookside Avenue meeting provided residents with a comprehensive view of what will be done there. The bridge will be widened and there will be sidewalks on both sides of it. There will also be a sidewalk on the St. Jude’s side of Brookside extending from Whiteview Avenue to Main Avenue. There were many concerns expressed, especially relating to driveway access immediately around the bridge. The engineers explained that they will work with affected residents to ensure safe access. They also indicated that they will have to “rent” some of their property during the time of construction so that they can maneuver easily and park vehicles. They assured the residents that the property would be returned to its original state or better and that they will pay rent for its use. The one surprising outcome is that unless working through Government red tape approvals is quicker than expected, construction will be next spring not this one. The good news is that the State has kicked in additional financial aid, in addition to the Federal aid, leaving the town with only a 5% match on all phases. NYISO has moved into the Phoenix Life building and is moving forward with expansion of the facilities. They are the people who control the electrical grid for the State. We are pleased they decided to move to our community. I hope that you will attend Board meetings the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. Please check the website, a day or so before to confirm there is a meeting scheduled and to see the agenda. Your input is invaluable and your understanding of the workings of the town is important for good governance. The town website also includes events of interest happening in the town. If you are a not for profit group and would like your event posted, please send us your information including activity, date, time, place and contact person.

Bring On The Heat. Clean Burning, Energy-Efficient Heat.

It was the dawn of another gorgeous Friday in Charleston, South Carolina. Warm spring breezes wafting through the stately palmettos…beautiful flowers growing everywhere…folks strolling the cobblestone streets. Suddenly, the sound of cannons filled the air and in an instant the course of American history was forever altered. The unthinkable had happened: the Civil War was “on”! Many citizens of the Town of Sand Lake answered the call to serve their country. On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 150 years to the day after the first shots were fired in Charleston; those brave soldiers will be honored in an event hosted jointly by the Town and the Sand Lake Bicentennial Planning Committee. Proceedings will begin at 11:30 AM at the Town Hall. Presentation of the colors and an invocation will be followed by remarks from Supervisor Burton Rounds and the reading of the names of all of Sand Lake’s Civil War veterans. At precisely 12 noon, cannons will be fired by Sand Lake’s own Morgan’s Artillery and then steeple bells across the county will toll. The program will conclude with a wreath laying ceremony. Please join us for this special occasion.

LOCAL TEEN TO ATTEND 2011 NATIONAL 4-H CONFERENCE Tyler Wagner, Rensselaer County 4-H Teen Ambassador, has been selected as one of four delegates to represent New York State at the 2011 National 4-H Conference April 2-7, 2011. This year’s theme “Elements 4 Ur Future” reinforces the rich history of 4-H as the flagship youth development organization of USDA extending the research, education and outreach of the land-grant university system through Cornell Cooperative Extension to our youngest citizens in their communities. Tyler, the son of Deborah and Bruce Wagner of Averill Park, is a senior at Averill Park High School. Tyler will stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland, just one mile from Washington, DC. While at the conference he will participate in citizenship excursions, briefing workshops, focus groups and roundtable discussions. Since the first conference in 1927, the “National 4-H Conference”, known as the Secretary’s Conference, continues to be USDA’s premier youth development opportunity. 4-H National Headquarters at USDA extends an invitation, on behalf of the Secretary of Agriculture, to the more than 100 Land Grant Colleges and Universities across the U.S. and U.S. Territories, to send a delegation to the National 4-H Conference. The conference expands on 4-H’s Essential Elements of Independence, Belonging, Mastery and Generosity by providing opportunities for youth to master skills to make positive life choices; participate in decision-making processes; act responsibly; positively influence their communities; and develop into informed, active, and engaged citizens. For more information about 4-H Youth Development, contact Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County at 2724210.

AP SCHOOL TAXES…WHAT NEXT? Letter to the Editor: At recent school board meetings, we have heard from dozens of teachers and students who are telling us what we already know. We have great schools, dedicated teachers and talented children. The problem is math. The state will continue to cut education aid to achieve “sustainable levels”. Our governor like many others does not believe our state can afford to fund schools at our current levels, so they are pulling back through Gap Elimination Adjustments; which if passed in the current budget, will continue for years to come. Right now, the governor has already proposed cuts for the 2012-2013 school years, which could mean another $3.5 million out of our budget on top of the $4.7 million for next year. What that would mean is that next March, we will be right where we are now; because a 2% property tax cap will add less that $600,000 to the budget which is hardly enough to offset millions in cuts. Meanwhile, our personnel and benefit costs continue to rise. Salaries, benefits and pensions make up 80% of the school budget, sadly staff reductions are inevitable. The math cannot and will not add up. We have spent too much and we are now paying for it. It’s no longer a revenue problem. It’s a spending problem. We need to find a way to make a $55 million budget work. We need to make fair and equitable cuts across all lines and departments. Any discretionary spending and overtime needs to stop immediately. We need to stop the partisan bickering and work together to get spending under control. The board needs to think long term regarding budget cuts. Go to and give us your ideas. Join us Monday, April 4th, 7pm for an open exchange and information forum on property and school taxes. We need to come together as a community to find solutions for the sake of our district and the children who are depending on us. ~Mark Keefe, Averill Park 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.

Tennis all star, Bo Cardish is this week’s scholar athlete. Bo has been playing on the boy’s varsity tennis team since he was a sophomore. Bo was 4th singles two years ago and then moved up to 2nd singles last year. The team has not decided positions yet, but hopefully Cardish will reach number 1 this year. Aside from tennis, Bo enjoys playing Frisbee, Skiing, Ping-Pong, playing the valve trombone, and playing video games. In his busy schedule, Cardish manages to spend time with his friends and maintain a 96.02 grade point average. This year Bo is taking courses such as: PIG/Economics, Wind Ensemble, Physics, Detective Literature, Cinema and Literature, Calculus, Jazz Band and Spanish 5. Bo has been accepted to Marist, RIT, and SUNY Brockport. Next year Bo will be studying Biology and hopefully furthering his tennis career. Bo’s favorite part about tennis is getting outside on a nice spring day and rallying with friends. “My many friends, teachers, coaches, and my parents have all contributed in inspiring me to strive for excellence in all that I do.” Come out and cheer on Bo Cardish and the varsity tennis team as they start their season!
