Located in West Sand Lake, New York, Ludder ’s Country Home Care provides compassionate, 24/7 long-term care for the elderly. We’ve been providing homecare services for nine years. We began with members of our own family, and then friends, and before we knew it calls were coming in from the greater community. We’ve just recently moved into a new location; a charming home with bright rooms and a comfortable atmosphere. This is a very unique opportunity for families; instead of an institutional setting, your loved one can be cared for in a loving home environment. Our goal is to provide family members with relief from the dayto-day responsibilities of caregiving so they can tend to other obligations. We provide quality eldercare that allows your loved one to remain in a home setting, with the dignity and peace of mind that they deserve. Our services include all home-cooked meals, laundry, personal hygiene, assistance with mobility, social and recreational activities, and transportation. Bedrooms are cable-ready, and all phone services are included. Along with our Residential Home Care, we also offer a short term Respite Program, a safe place for Mom or Dad to be during the days while at work or on vacation. Also, we provide a Customized Home Care Service. Give us a call and we can sit down to discuss an individualized plan that suits your needs. Our team of caregivers includes Pamela Stasack, Helen Bridenbeck, and Patty Ludder, who are here on a daily basis, adding to the loving atmosphere within our home. All of us, the residents and staff, are truly a family unit. A special thanks to Dr. Lisa Thorn who has been very caring towards our residents, and a great friend to Ludder’s Country Home. If you have a friend or a family member who has expressed their desire to remain in a home setting, we can help ease the transition with a compassionate helping hand. We provide a quality of life for our residents that is unlike any other; a quality of life that we all long for and deserve. Please feel free to call and arrange a visit. We can help you put a plan together and look forward to developing this relationship and for you or your loved one to become a part of our caring home.

Read All Day is a celebration of books, literacy and reading. Guest readers, (including substitute teachers, AP administrators and even a librarian from the Albany Public Library), volunteered their time to read to homerooms and large groups in the auditorium. Students enjoyed listening to poems, picture books, biographies, magazines, short stories and novels during Read All Day. Students in the auditorium even heard The Strange Case of Origami Yoda complete with an origami Yoda finger puppet! Author James Preller was Algonquin’s special guest for Read All Day. Mr. Preller lives in Delmar and is the author of forty books, including Bystander (which deals with bullying in a middle school), and Six Innings. Generous support for this author visit was provided by Student Council and the Algonquin Parent Organization. Before his arrival, Mr. Preller was already blogging about his visit to our school. Check out photos of our special cake and our library bulletin board on his blog: http:// Mr. Preller presented to each grade and spoke about his books, including Bystander, which is about bullying. This author visit ties in with the many anti-bullying initiatives that have been undertaken at AMS, such as our Zip It! campaign where students pledged not to bully others. Mr. Preller also gave a special presentation called “The Life of an Author”. He spoke about how he gets his ideas, the writing process and the first book he ever wrote. Mr. Preller answered many questions from our curious students. Students had an opportunity to meet Mr. Preller and talk with him as he signed their books after school. He gave Algonquin students, faculty and staff a memorable day they won’t forget!

The Rensselaer County Legislature remembered legislators who passed away during the past several months with a memorial ceremony Wednesday, April 4. Family members, legislators, friends and County Executive Jimino were on hand. The Rensselaer County Legislature remembered legislators who passed away during the past several months with a memorial ceremony Wednesday, April 4, Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid announced. The ceremony recognized and noted the service of Legislators Dominic Denio, J. Willard Doran, Jane Doughney and Frank Wittman, who passed away during the past year. Family and friends of the four legislators were invited to participate in the ceremony. Pictures and plaques noting the service of the four lawmakers were added to the Memorial Wall, located at the rear of the legislative chambers. “We are privileged to be able to recognize four outstanding public servants and representatives of the community. The service of these four lawmakers stretches decades and includes work that improved our counties and strengthened our communities,” said Reid. Denio served as a representative of District 3 from 1974 to 1989. The patriarch of a large family, Denio was known for his decades of service to youth athletics as a coach and referee. Doran was a noted high school athlete and teacher in the Lansingburgh School District and principal of Knickerbacker Junior High School. Known as a gentleman representative, Doran represented Troy from 1982 to 1997. Doughney represented District 3 from 1986 to 1994, and was also a Brunswick councilwoman. She was known for her commitment to emergency services and dedication to other community organizations. Wittman served as a legislator from District 5, when that district included the Town of Poestenkill, from 1974 to 1985. A U.S. Navy veteran of World War II, he was active in veteran organizations, Poestenkill fire and ambulance and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Poestenkill. “Dom, Will, Jane and Frank were very different individuals but they were united by their love of Rensselaer County and the

Jim will transition into the role near term before taking over on a permanent basis as of July 1. We received word from Albany that we will receive $91,703 more Foundation Aid and $194,113 reduction in the Gap Elimination Adjustment based on the approved state budget. We continue to work with Senator McDonald on potential “Bullet Aid” that may realize some additional funding. At the April 3rd Board meeting, Superintendent Marcelle shared a budget scenario that includes full day Kindergarten, maintaining as much program as possible, as well as Varsity and JV sports at the 3.95% Tax Levy Cap (TLC). This still means a reduction of $2.3 million from the current budget. We are discussing opportunities to realize savings with all of our bargaining units currently without a contract. At the April 17th meeting, the Board will adopt a budget that will be presented to district residents to vote on May 15th. It is important to mention the Board is not setting what your tax rate will be for next but rather the % increase to the current school budget. Efforts will continue to ensure that our students are set up as best as possible for success. We would like to thank the over 1,400 respondents to the online survey. This information has been integrated into the most recent budget scenarios reviewed by the Board. A summary of the results are available in the April 3rd budget scenario presentation.

We hope to see you, rain or shine, on the day before Mother’s Day.

HOPING THE PRESIDENT WILL CHANGE Letter to the Editor: Back when our President had just been elected, Rush Limbaugh was vilified for saying he hoped Obama would fail. I knew what he meant and agreed that his policy of big spending government was doomed to failure but I stated it differently. I’ve always wished the President success, but success hinges on the ability to learn and change as conditions warrant. No one can succeed by adhering to plans once it’s obvious they aren’t working. America’s success is inexorably linked to the President’s success. If he fails, we fail. But this President doesn’t seem to be listening or learning. Like many Americans, I’ve had to work harder just to keep up with President Obama’s spending largess. I’ve had to sacrifice vacations with my family and borrow money to pay taxes so that our government doesn’t have to borrow more from China. But the demands for more sacrifice keep coming. Is sacrifice the key to success? Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh know that it’s not. He doesn’t hate the President or Liberals. Like me, he probably just hates bad policy. We hate bad policies because bad policies hurt absolutely everyone, even those who implement them. Government’s taxing and spending is hampering the ability of Conservatives to pull the wagon of dependency that Liberals are riding in. We are getting weak from all this sacrifice. Pretty soon we’ll all be in the wagon. At that point we’ll only be able to go downhill. We want more people pulling the wagon for everyone’s sake because independence is a better life. As a taxpayer who is drowning under new tax obligations, I’m going to reflect President Obama’s mantra of “Hope and Change” back at him with this quote from one of the most famous Liberals of our time: “I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror ~ I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways ~ And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer ~ If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place ~ Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change.” –Michael Jackson. ~ David Crawmer, Editor s 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.

FOX MANSION, ONE of FINEST GREEK REVIVAL STYLE RESIDENCES in RENSS. CO. On April 25, 2001 the Fox Mansion was accepted by the National Register of Historical Places. Peter Shaver of the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation compiled the nomination. The Fox house in Sand Lake, built in 1840 for the Albert R. Fox family, is one of the finest Greek Revival style residences in Rensselaer County. The two-story frame house has all the hallmarks of the Greek Revival style, including two-story pilasters framing all five bays on the façade and a stylish onestory porch with ionic columns supporting a heavy entablature extending across the front onto symmetrical one-story flanking wings. Window panes in the mansion came from the Rensselaer Glass Works, which Albert and his brother Samuel ran from 1837 to 1853. Albert graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institutes’ Class of 1830 and was a NYS Senator from 18481849. The surrounding grounds are in excellent condition and contain a large fountain on the south side. It is remembered that the Sand Lake Baptist Church of which Mr. Fox was a member, held their baptisms at the fountain in the 1800s. The Fox House is the first property in the Town of Sand Lake to be accepted by the National Register. For years, stories about the Fox House being part of the Underground Railroad were told. A tunnel was supposed to be their hiding place. Both the house and the barn were used to shelter the runaways. Judy Rowe has the closest story about the tunnel. In 1979, a very elderly woman was brought into Rowe’s IGA store and asked for Judy. She related that as a child she had played in the Fox House and also mentioned they played hide and seek in the old tunnel. What old tunnel? The tunnel in the cellar was her answer. However, prior and subsequent searches have never found any tunnel. The Fox Mansion’s other claim to fame was when it housed Yesteryears Antique Doll Museum and gained international recognition for its fine collection with Lillian Eauclaire Sproule as curator. ~ Submitted by Mary French, Sand Lake Historical Society

A wedding is a joyous event that couples want to share with as many people as possible. Couples commonly ask family and friends to take part in the ceremony as ushers, bridesmaids or readers. Before enlisting the help of a child to fill such roles, couples should carefully consider whether a youngster is capable of participating in the wedding ceremony or if he or she may not be up to the task. Millions of people tuned into the British Royal wedding in April. Among the participants were six young children. The Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, Miss Eliza Lopes, Miss Grace van Cutsem, Lady Louise Windsor, Master Tom Pettifer, and Master William Lowther-Pinkerton were bridesmaids and pages in attendance. The children were as young as three years old and as old as 10. Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were confident enough in the kids’ maturity to include them, reportedly some measures were taken to keep the tots in line. For instance, Prince Henry reportedly delighted little Eliza Lopes with a pink “wiggly worm” so she wouldn’t be frightened by the crowds. Said wiggly worm actually made it into the official group bridal photo, being clutched by Miss Lopes. Couples worrying about all the little details of their own weddings may not want to fret about kiddie meltdowns or the bloopers that can occur when kids act like kids. Each child’s personal maturity level should be considered before enlisting their help. There are some other strategies to use as well. * Young children serving as flower girls or ring bearers should be able to walk down the aisle without coaxing. If they cannot handle this task, then they should not be asked to take part in the wedding. * Should children prove competent to walk down the aisle unattended, couples can have them then make their way to the seats next to their parents, rather than awkwardly standing with the rest of the bridal party for the ceremony. * An minimum age requirement for wedding participants might be a good idea. A child age 5 or up may be able to appreciate the importance of the event. * Consult with the pastor or officiate of the ceremony. The ceremony location may have rules governing children in the ceremony. * All people who have participated in the ceremony will be invited to the reception. If couples decide to have a kids-free party, then reconsider children in the ceremony. * Think about another role for a young child that will not disrupt the proceedings. Perhaps he or she can help hand out birdseed or small bottles of bubbles to use when the couple has finished their vows. Or give children disposable cameras and allow them to capture a kids’-eye view of the wedding.

Prom attire consists of wearing gowns and tuxedos in the style of the season. One tradition of prom that continues today is the presentation of a corsage to the female attendant. Corsages have been part of formal wear for centuries. Originally, a corsage was considered to be a small grouping of flowers worn on the center bodice of a dress. It is derived from the French term “bouquet de corsage,” which translates to bouquet of the bodice. In the 20th century, corsages evolved into something that served as a gift for women attending special social dances, like their high school proms. The corsage worn in this manner was part of the courting process. The gentleman would show respect to his date’s parents, including bringing flowers or a gift. The gentleman would then take a flower out of the bouquet and present it to his date and attach it to her dress. As prom dresses evolved to feature spaghetti straps or no straps at all, pinning the corsage to the dress bodice was no longer practical. Therefore, corsages soon morphed into small bouquets that were attached to an elastic band. The result was something that could be worn around the wrist. Nowadays, there are various styles of corsages that can be worn at the waist and even in the hair.A gentleman should ask his date what color gown she is wearing to coordinate the corsage with the gown. However, neutral-colored blooms of peach, white and pink can complement a number of differed hued dresses. Many different flowers can be used in corsages. While roses are typical

flowers to show affection and love, chrysanthemums, carnations, birds of paradise, orchids, and lilies can all be used depending on budget and style. Because florists are typically busy come the spring it is best to order corsages well in advance to ensure the order is filled on time.

JESUS AMONG US! On April 15, 2012, the Second Sunday of Easter, the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches will continue their celebration in worship of Easter by looking at the Gospel of John 20:1931. In those verses, we find the risen Christ involved in many acts which are recorded by the Gospel writer to help people believe in Jesus and share in his life and ministry. In order to reach more of those destined to be his followers, Jesus commissioned the disciples to continue his ministry. In the sermon titled “Jesus Among us,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will help us to see how Jesus moves into the fellowship of our lives in the same ways in which he moved into the fellowship of his firstcentury disciples. Join and come to more fully understand that we are never alone; God is always with us; and the closer we are to God, the closer we are drawn to each other. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at 9 Church Street, one half mile south of the traffic (caution) light, at intersection of Routes 26A and 9J,in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its Chapel on the second level of its Church School Building at 43 Church Street, approximately one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village.

What does being a ‘’Lutheran’’ mean? How do we worship??? The most precious gifts and treasures our Lord gives us are his forgiveness, life and salvation. Through his innocent life and bitter sufferings and death Christ has purchased and won us from sin and death. Through Jesus Christ, all the sins of the world were paid for and the wrath of God was appeased. Christ has reconciled the whole world to God. What is the heart and center of Lutheran Worship?? Lutheran worship puts the focus squarely on Jesus Christ, who is present for us and with us through his word and sacraments. ‘’Divine service means it is a ‘’Holy’’ time, meaning a time ‘’set apart.’’ It is a time to be set apart from the workaday world...a time to spend with our Lord. We are gathered together in the presence of Holy, Almighty, Ever-Living God, and thus we are part of a time of ‘’Heaven On Earth’’ as our Lord forgives our sins and gives us new life today, and eternal salvation with him forever. This understanding of the divine service explains why many who experience Lutheran Worship for the first time describe it as dignified, reverent, and sacred. In Lutheran services, pastors and congregation sing or speak the liturgy back and forth or together. Congregational singing of hymns has always been a hallmark of Lutheran Worship. We invite you to come and worship with us at Trinity Lutheran Church, RT 150, West Sand Lake, at 9:00 a.m., or Gilead Lutheran Church of Center Brunswick at 11:00 a.m., with pastor Jim Hulihan. Please call 674-5501 or 279-9270.

FRIDAY NIGHT STORY DINNERS Yet another successful Story-Dinner was held at Gilead Lutheran Church. On Friday, March 16th, an abundance of Corned beef, ham, cabbage, potatoes, sides and desserts, served. Welcoming all from the community, we had 26 in attendance. We kicked off with an excerpt from the last story dinner in February, as told by Gilead’s Glenn Hayner. His quote was made into a lovely poster, supplied by Mariruth Brown. Our scheduled storyteller had a family matter and had to cancel at the last minute, but our speaker (scheduled for April) Eleanor Bode of Brunswick, stepped right up to the plate. Eleanor delivered a very heartfelt story about her family growing up in a large family n the post depression era, her faith journey and it was smattered with Trojan history. No one was disappointed! Her Sister and Brother-in-law, Evah and Bill Beck were in attendance from our sister church, Trinity Lutheran in West Sand Lake. Both Bill and Evah stood and added great personal accounts to Eleanor’s story! With great food cooked by Gilead’s Lisa Kreiger, Marion Daus, Carol Gibbs, and Eleanor Bode, hall set up and decorated by Keith Kreiger, Flowers and shamrocks supplied by John and Darlene Shanahan, many attendees’ bringing desserts and the cooperation of the weather, it was another successful evening in Brunswick, NY! The next dinner is scheduled for Friday, April 20th, at 6PM. We will be serving baked chicken and summer salads. Everyone is welcome.

ALBANY, NY (02/29/2012)- What started out to be a Super bowl campaign to benefit The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has snowballed into a year round program for The Goldstein Family Auto Group, Thanks to the hundreds of donations of cans and bottles The Goldstein Family Auto Group has received from the community, coupled with the MHHS 125th Anniversary, Goldstein Auto is committed to continuing their part of the campaign year round. Since coming on board, The Goldstein Family Auto Group has set up depositories in each of their four dealerships to help collect cans and bottles from patrons, staӽ, and families, wanting to help the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Menands, New York. The cans and bottles turn into dollars for the organization to help care for and place the animals they have at the shelter. "Our Goal for the 125 Anniversary is to encourage the community to help collect 1,562,500 which would translate into $125,000 to MHHS. " said Stefanie Goldstein, a principal in the Goldstein Family Auto Group and daughter of President Alan Goldstein. "This is only 637,500 more bottles and cans than last year. If everyone continues the momentum we have had already, we can do it!" Last year the Society's "Empties for Animals" program generated over $74,000 in revenue. Individual members of the community, school groups and other organizations dropped oӽ more than 925,000 cans and bottles. Volunteers sorted all those bottles and cans based upon the originating distributor, which in turn generated 8 cents per can/bottle instead of the regular 5-cent redemption fee paid at stores. Monies from the programs were used to benefit the more than 6,500 animals cared for by the Society in 2011. "As an added incentive The Goldstein Family has commissioned our trucks and drivers to make pick ups from around their area neighborhoods, restaurants, schools, event destinations, anywhere they need us to" added Stefanie. "If everyone who does not save their recyclables currently starts saving them, we can make a huge diӽerence." With Earth Day just a few months away, weekly totals received at all Goldstein Auto locations will increase as the group does plan to participate in "A Billion Acts of Green" one of the Earth Day organizations April programs. They are using the power of their advertising, website, facebook page and show rooms to spread the word to recycle and help save abandon, elderly and abused animals rescued and cared for by The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.

People can drop oӽ their cans and bottles to any of the four Goldstein locations: ~ Goldstein Buick/GMC, 1671 Central Avenue, Albany ~ ~ Goldstein Chrysler Jeep Dodge, 613 Loudon Rd, Latham ~ (across from Hoӽman's Playland) ~ Goldstein Subaru, 1754 Central Avenue, Albany ~ ~ Goldstein Mitsubishi, 1673 Central Avenue, Albany ~

What’s bugging your pet? If you own a dog or cat, you’ve likely already seen ticks and possibly even fleas this spring. The average temperature this year during the month of March was approximately 10 degrees higher than in past years which, among other factors, lead to an increasing number of ticks. Experts believe that the warmer temperatures will also lead to an increase in the numbers of fleas and mosquitoes. Ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes are more than a mere nuisance. These pests can carry serious disease. Mosquitoes spread heartworm disease; fleas can Dr. Lisa M. carry Bartonella (a bacterial infection known as cat scratch disease); ticks Wiggins transmit more than 15 diseases. Due to the high number of ticks seen this year, they are a serious concern for many pet owners because of the diseases ticks spread to pets and to people. In our area, Lyme disease has been of interest for many years but recently Anaplasmosis has emerged as a tick-borne disease that proves to be as debilitating as Lyme for dogs and people. The clinical signs in dogs for Anaplasmosis and Lyme disease often appear very similar. The signs in dogs CAN include but are not limited to limping/painful joints, lethargy (lack of energy), loss of appetite and often fever. The good news is that improvement in your dog is seen quickly when treated with an antibiotic called Doxycycline. In addition to a single tick-borne infection, some dogs acquire a co-infection of more than one tick disease. When stricken with more than one infection, dogs are much more likely to show signs of serious disease. Currently the only tick borne disease which we can vaccinate against in dogs is Lyme disease. The vaccine is less than 100% effective but does provide significant protection especially compared to not vaccinating against the disease. Use of veterinary approved topical tick prevention is important in decreasing the chance of tick-borne diseases in your pets and in decreasing human exposure to live ticks that our pets bring into the home. Although there are many products available for pet owners to use for tick and other parasite prevention, it is recommended that you discuss with your veterinarian the most effective and safest choices. Your veterinarian has the experience and training to give you the most current and accurate information regarding parasites, disease prevention, and pet-product safety.

PET FOOD DONATIONS The Rensselaer County Humane Society, Inc. has developed a partnership with the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to provide donated pet food at the CEO Food Pantry located at 2328 Fifth Avenue in Troy. Laurie Smith, President of the all-volunteer Humane Society, said the decision to assist local families through a partnership with CEO was an easy choice. Far too many Rensselaer County residents are struggling with the difficulty of acquiring food for themselves and for their beloved pets, with many choosing to go without in order to care for their pets. “We are thrilled to be able to provide pet food to our customers along with supplies for their own families’ needs,” states CEO Executive Director Karen Gordon. “So often when a family is going through a difficult time, pets can be neglected. CEO is here to help prevent families in Rensselaer County from needing to make this difficult decision.” Pet food donations can be dropped off at the CEO food pantry in the Joseph L. Bruno Family Resource Center, 2328 Fifth Avenue, Troy. Hours are Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:00-4:30, Tuesdays 9-12:30, and Thursdays 9-7.

by Claire Everett During our shortened week before the well needed Spring Break, our Averill Park athletes didn’t sell anyone short as they played their hearts out in numerous competitions! To start, the Girl’s Lacrosse team played two opponents, Bethlehem and Colonie. They first took on Bethlehem on Tuesday. The girls had a hard fought game, but fell short 183. Goals were scored by Krista Fitzerald with one, and Sofi Sorriento had two. On Thursday, the girls played a season changer as they took on the Colonie powerhouse. This time, the girls came out with an amazing victory 8-7. Great game winning performances by Sarah Laranjo and Morgan Lionarons each with 3 goals. Also, great job to Molly O’ Bryan and Marionna Valente who ended the game with 1 goal each. Amazing job ladies, keep it up! The Softball team also played in a number of games this week. The Warriors took on the Bethlehem Eagles on Monday. The ladies fought hard but fell short 7-2. Great highlight by Kelly Donelly, who started the game by hitting a bloop double. Good luck next time ladies. The Boy’s Baseball team took on a couple opponents this week, including Bethlehem, Colonie and Tamarac. The boys took on Bethlehem on Monday, and unfortunately couldn’t pull out a victory, and lost 6-5 in extra innings. On the 4th, the Warriors hosted Colonie. The boys started out strong, but fell short 184. Runs were scored by Joe Marino, Tyler Childrose, Sam Beaulac, and Josh Austin. AP then took on Tamarac high school on Friday and beat them easily 8-1. Great end to a challenging week! Last week was a jam packed week, but the games don’t stop now. Next week the Warriors will be taking on, and hopefully beating several opponents, so come and support our AP Warriors! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at
