NEARLY 3 MILLION SPENT ON E.G. ROUNDABOUT PROJECT Letter to the Editor: The “roundabout” on RT’s 4 and 151 is nearly complete and open to traffic. With great delay, a Freedom of Information Act request was answered finally by The Town of East Greenbush which revealed that nearly three million dollars has been spent on this project. I question whether this was absolutely necessary in this time of economic downturn. Recently, I approached the roundabout coming from the direction of RT 20 and witnessed two ambulances from the Bruen Rescue Squad as they slowly navigated around this newly installed obstacle course. If an 18 wheel truck had been in the roundabout, both ambulances would have had to wait as would a fire engine. In Florida when roundabouts were installed, the accident rate climbed immediately. It’s going to take time to get used to this traffic abomination, I just hope few are hurt or killed in the process. The only positive aspect of roundabouts is the creation of construction jobs which provide ample funds for contractors to make re-election campaign contributions to politicians. ~ Steve Sevits, East Greenbush 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.

Highway projects are in full swing and we have seen a great deal of progress on a number of fronts. At our last meeting, we discussed the Loeffel Toxic Waste Site. The Board outlined a number of concerns that EPA, like DEC before them, has failed to address. Residents were advised that related documents are available on the Town’s website at I would encourage all residents to stay updated on this ongoing environmental concern. We also discussed the recently completed economic development study that has been completed thanks to a grant secured from the Hudson River Greenway. There is a great deal of material to review from this project. Thank you to all that contributed to this effort. The new handicap accessible porch entrance for Town Hall is now operational thanks to a state grant and some great work by Councilmen Carpentier and Sears. There is more work to be done, but this is a great addition that makes the town offices far more accessible and welcoming. The Board has been advised that the permissive referendum period has passed for the development of the Burden Lake Sewer District and no district vote is required. The project now goes to the Comptroller’s office for review in anticipation of construction. A very important public meeting has been scheduled for July 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Nassau Highway Department. All residents are encouraged to attend to see our aging equipment up close and to participate in our discussion to deal with aging facilities and machines. We have also scheduled a June 25th meeting to review the completeness of the Troy Sand & Gravel Special Use Permit Application and a public hearing for July 12 to review a solar array Special Use permit. The Board has also concluded departmental audits and has appointed Barbara Sears as a member of the Youth Committee. Thank you to Barbara for volunteering so much of her time to our residents. I would also like to thank Councilman Carpentier for providing free cemetery restoration classes to town officials, including our historian. Their classroom was Nassau’s Larkin Cemetery and the results are a benefit for all residents. The stone of a Civil War veteran was wonderfully restored among others. There is so much going on with committees and advisory groups. Please consider joining us as we pursue progress in the community. Best wishes for a great summer.

“Let’s get together for a great American quilting bee.” That’s what the women in the Town of Sand Lake set out to do in December 1975. The result was a handmade quilt depicting history and organizations within the Town for the Nation’s Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. Quilt Chairman Myra Wehnau related in February 1979 Rensselaer County Sun, “It started out as a raffle prize, but turned out so nice we didn’t want it to leave town.” People throughout the community joined in the project with each square depicting a part of the past. Four squares in the middle show the Sand Lake Town Hall which was formerly Sand Lake Presbyterian Church. Civic groups such as Girl and Boy Scouts, Kiwanis, Grange, Sand Lake Association for Mutual Protection of Horse Thieves and Rebekahs nestled in and around churches, hotels, schools, businesses and volunteer firemen and ambulance associations. The “mail square” shows a rural mailman leading a covered white wagon drawn by a horse. Myra’s son, Duane Wehnau, was a mail carrier for Averill Park and West Sand Lake so that was a special square for her albeit delivery service being updated. Industry is represented by a charcoal filled cart, the glass works and mills. The Troy and New England Railway shows a special era of transportation for the Town. One vivid square depicts rows of red ripe strawberries. Sand Lake used to be known for its strawberries and its farms. In the June 16, 1976 Times Record Myra stated, “When our strawberries went to market, they were gone in a wink.” The ten foot long by seven feet quilt was described by Myra as, “A quilt large enough to be used by Abe Lincoln on his extralong bed.” Each group painstakingly completed their square by hand in appliqué. The 57 squares were put together by the Girls’ Organization of Fun and Service (GOOFS) of Church of the Covenant, United Methodist. The Sand Lake ‘200’ Club had the picture of the quilt done as postcards. ~ Submitted by Mary French for Sand Lake Bicentennial Planning Committee monthly historical article project.

STAMMEL SAYS RENSSELAER ROAD RECONSTRUCTION SHOULD BE REVIEWED The amount of road reconstruction work in and around the City of Rensselaer should be reviewed and possibly changed to help small businesses and motorists, said Legislator Mike Stammel. Stammel said he has heard from a number of small business owners and motorists who have concerns about the road work and the delays, detours and disruptions caused by the work. Stammel said he would like a review of the work, and consideration given towards rescheduling the work from daytime to evening hours. “There is considerable concern about the fact all of this road is going on at the same time and really hurting small businesses in the city. Many motorists have also called me to voice their concerns about the amount of work now being done,” said Stammel, who represents Rensselaer in the County Legislature. “It would be helpful if the state came in and reviewed the work, the difficulties and the detours created, and made some recommendations to address the issue. There should be consideration given to changing from daytime construction to evening hours,” added Stammel. There are currently several road and public works projects taking place simultaneously in Rensselaer. There is work on the Dunn Memorial bridge over the Hudson River between Albany and Rensselaer, work on Broadway, a separate project on the viaduct bridge on Broadway and work on gas lines on Broadway. Stammel said some of the work will benefit economic development efforts which he supports, but that a balance should be struck to avoid hurting other areas of the community. “Economic development is good and needed, but we should work to avoid hurting other small businesses that for years have been the backbone of our city’s economy,” said Stammel. Stammel supported a resolution approved at Tuesday’s meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature asking for state review of the road reconstruction work in Rensselaer.

BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES PROGRAM NEEDS YOUR HELP CoNSERN S-U will be holding our free school supply program again this August. This program allows students to get the school supplies that they need and at no charge to them. The program has been extremely successful in the past, due largely to the wonderful support we have gotten from area churches and organizations. So, once again, we are appealing to you for help. We will be setting up our “store” in August and need the following items: 3 subject notebooks, 3 ring binders (1 ½ inch, 2 inch, and 3 inch), scientific calculators (price around $10), pocket folders, glue sticks, colored pencils, markers, highlighters, subject dividers, zippered pencil cases, loose leaf paper (wide rule only), scissors, flash drives, protractors, pens, pencils… and especially new backpacks. The cost of school supplies can make it very difficult for low income families to purchase what is needed. Our free supply program not only allows the students to be prepared for the first day of school but it also helps those students to start the school year in a positive way. Last year we served 286 students and we are hoping to serve even more this year. Any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated! Our store will be held on August 28. Please have supplies to CoNSERNS-U by August 22. Thank you. For more information, please call CoNSERNS-U at 463-8571 or Sandy Barnhart at 674-2747.

SALISBURY FAMILY BENEFIT DINNER On April 24th, 2012, Jeff and Michael Salisbury lost their home to a fire.

pages 12-14 AvaDentTM Digital Dentures Offer Revolutionary, High-Tech Advantages To Denture Patients Averill Park, NY, May 2012, Dr.’s Hill, Gamache & Sundstrom are pleased to announce the incorporation of AvaDentTM Digital Dentures into their practice. As one of a select number of dental practices to offer this breakthrough, digital, CAD/CAM technology, Dr.’s Hill, Gamache & Sundstrom, can now create an AvaDent Digital Denture with a precise, computer fit, in just two appointments. Traditional dentures can take as many as five or more appointments and still not have the patient advantages found with AvaDent. The AvaDent process starts with one convenient record taking appointment to capture the patient’s exact features. The information is then sent to AvaDent’s Scottsdale, AZ facility where it is imputed into a computer, digitally designed and precision milled from a compressed, pre-shrunk disk of acrylic. In addition to the precision fit and two appointment convenience, AvaDents are more bacteria resistant than traditional fabricated dentures to help elimintate sore spots and “denture breath”. And because AvaDents are digital, each one has a permanent digital record so if they are ever lost or broken they can be replaced quickly and easily without the patient even coming into the practice. “With AvaDent our patients can regain their youthful smile with the natural look and feel they may have thought they had lost forever,” said Dr. Hill. “We tell our patients that with AvaDent you can have a smile that is virtually you!”

COPING WITH MULTIPLE LOSSES: PART 2 On Friday, June 22, the Seniors’ Ministry of Immaculate Conception/St. Joseph Parish will host their regular monthly meeting at the church and hall in New Lebanon. This month’s program, which is a continuation of an earlier presentation by Rev. Susan Schultz, will begin at 11:30 am in the parish hall. Rev. Schultz, Pastor of the Stephentown Federated Church and a hospice chaplain, will speak about the difficulties encountered by those who have suffered from multiple losses, which tend to occur more often as people age. Not only the loss of family and friends, but also a decline in health, finances and other resources may combine to lessen a person’s ability to sustain a sense of self-worth and hope. Rev. Schultz will help participants to identify the effects of these significant life events and will offer her thoughts about ways in which people can address the issues. A light lunch will follow the presentation and everyone from the community is welcome to attend the program; there is no charge for the program or for lunch. The church and hall are located at 732 U.S. Route 20, in New Lebanon. For more information, please contact Georgette Tefoe at 518-7940156.

Brooklyn Darling, Jenna Farley, Molly Cardamone, Christina Parrottino, Emily Jaworski, Rachel Kane and Gracie Driscoll of Troop 1611 have recently earned their Bronze Award. For their Bronze award, the girls demonstrated their dedication to our community by volunteering at the Doors of Hope and collecting over 250 canned goods for “Hands For New York”. For the past three months, every other Thursday, the girls have volunteered at the Doors of Hope doing whatever was asked of them; cleaning, folding and organizing donated goods, sorting food donations and even taking out the trash! With some of the money the Troop earned from this year’s cookie sales, the girls bought enough flowers to fill the eight flower boxes at the entrance of the Doors of Hope. The Troop visited the local Hannaford to learn about the Star Program and the importance of good nutrition and a healthy diet. The girls also volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY. On behalf of Troop 1611, we would like to thank the Doors of Hope and their volunteers for their tireless efforts in providing such a valuable service to our community and for teaching our Girl Scouts the joys of volunteering.

QUESTION: How does meditation actually reduce stress? J. Stewart, Wynantskill, NY ANSWER: The benefits of meditation have now been documented by hard science through the analysis of brain scans conducted on meditators. Recent clinical studies conducted by both Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Richard Davidson, professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of WisconsinMadison, have found that a daily meditation practice actually shifts brain activity from the stress-prone right frontal cortex to the calmer, more detached left frontal cortex. This mental shift, brought about by meditation, decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety while lessening activity in the amygdala, the portion of the brain that processes fear and initiates the fight, flight or freeze response. Even though the fight, flight or freeze response is automatic, it isn’t always appropriate. In fact most of the time it turns out to be a false alarm––there is no actual threat at all to survival. That happens because the amygdala, which initiates the automatic part of the fight, flight or freeze response, cannot distinguish between a real threat and a perceived threat. Whenever the mind perceives a real or imagined threat to the organism’s selfpreservation, the fight, flight or freeze response will initiate actions that are often inappropriate because our lives are not really being threatened. Daniel Goleman in his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, coined the term “amygdala hijack.” The phrase describes any emotional response which is immediate, overwhelming and out of proportion to the actual stimulus because the amygdala has perceived a much more significant emotional threat than that which really exists. Without a daily meditation practice to decrease the fight, flight or freeze response, the amygdala will continue to cause unskillful lifestyle choices that compromise our health. However, we can choose to live life from a different perspective. When we meditate for just five minutes in the morning and emotional storms start to arise in the day, we can reduce the negative health effects of stress by literally changing the structure of our brain. Then, instead of feeling threatened or stressed by adverse circumstances, we can remain calm, and even contribute something positive to those formidable situations. The meditation and easy-gentle yoga curriculum at the American Meditation Institute is accredited by the American Medical Association, Albany Medical College and the N.Y.S. Nurses Association. It is also endorsed by nationally recognized physicians Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD.

Letter to the Editor: After my last article about bears in our area, I received a couple requests for information about encountering a bear while hiking. Obviously, if there is a car or building within reach, it is best to move into that shelter. If we are in the woods, we should have another plan. The black bear species is an opportunistic feeder and is likely looking for picnic food or bird feeders. The polar bear which, thankfully, we don’t have to deal with here recognizes humans as a prey item and the protocol on encounters is very different! The Grizzly bear also requires specialized consideration. Since it is the black bear we are seeing in this area, being familiar with a few common sense procedures should keep us safe. People in groups appear more formidable and make more noise giving any bear in the area an opportunity to move away. A black bear with young is ready to protect them, but even with cubs, she is more likely to try to move away. Avoid any area which has food sources such as a dump or an area in the woods containing food a bear might have claimed. Make sure that you do not make sudden moves. Don’t act in a threatening way. Don’t make eye contact with the bear or stare at it. Don’t block off what may be perceived as an escape route. If you are with a group, move closer together rather than spread out. Back away slowly. Do not run, scream or yell at the bear. If you find yourself close to a bear, do not startle it. Act in a non-threatening manner. If the black bear appears aggressive, climb a tree if possible. Lying down and playing dead, or climbing a tree, are all signs of submission to the bear demonstrating that you are not a threat. If you are carrying a pack or food items, you should quietly move those to the ground before backing away. This may attract the bear’s attention while you exit. Educate your children on what to do when wildlife appears. ~ Catherine Crawmer, Animal Control Officer 477-8230

The bad news is that this is the last article of the season; the good news is that AP Sports will be back in the fall. I will wrap up the last article by saying thank you for all the feedback and see you next year. And to all the athletes out there, remember: Champions are made when no one is watching.

Thank you all for reading my weekly column about Averill Park’s talented student athletes. I really enjoyed myself and I hope you enjoyed learning about these amazing people. I will be attending Roger Williams University in the fall and will be playing soccer for the school. Even though I will be a Hawk in the fall, I will forever be a Warrior at heart. But that is enough about me; I have the pleasure of introducing to you, next year’s columnist, Lauren Navratil. Lauren is a fantastic athlete that has a work ethic like nonother. She is the kind of player that coaches beg to have on their teams. Lauren has been playing soccer since she was five years old and plays all year with the Averill Park Youth Soccer League. You can find her in the Defensive Midfield position on the soccer field. Her favorite part about the game is the rush of winning the ball, beating her defender, and contributing to a great play. She is truly a team player and one of the most positive people to be around. Lauren has received many awards, along the lines of Most Aggressive and has recently won a Coach’s MVP award which she fully deserved; but Lauren isn’t only an all-star on the field, she is also an all-star in the classroom. Navratil has a 90 GPA with a love for English class. Next year she will be taking Philosophy, Writer’s Workshop, Economics, Participation in Government, Forensics, and BioGene. In the future, Lauren hopes to become a Clinical Psychologist, but first she would like to study psychology at SUNY Oneonta, Buffalo, Oswego, or Binghamton and play soccer wherever she ends up. In her spare time, Lauren enjoys hanging out with her friends, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and being outside. “Being a scholar athlete means the world to me. With the recognition of my success and dedication to sports, along with that of my academic success is such a huge honor,” stated your new Athlete of the Week columnist. She would like to thank her Grandparents for inspiring her to always work hard and teaching her that the key to a good life is simple generosity. She would also like to thank all of her teachers, family, friends, and coaches for their support over the past couple years. Thank you to all of my readers and best of luck to Lauren as she embarks on her final year at APHS. Best Wishes to all in the 2012-2013 school year.

NOTICE TO SHERWOOD PARK RESIDENTS Town Of East Greenbush Sewer Clean out/Sherwood Park Area (from Phillips Rd to Corliss) This notice is to inform you that Reynolds Inliner will be beginning sanitary sewer rehabilitation work in your neighborhood. This work involves using high pressure water to clean the sewer lines of grease debris and obstructions. The lines will be televised following the cleaning process. Make sure there is water in your traps before and after the cleaning process. The cleaning process can create a vacuum, which will drain the water from your traps, if this occurs, and the smell of sewer gas is present in your home, flush all your toilets, run water in all your sinks and showers and dump water in any floor drains you may have. Occasionally air can get pushed up the lines causing a surge out of a drain or toilet bowl. Please close your toilet lids and drape a heavy towel over them. The work in your area will be performed the week of JUNE 14, THROUGH JULY 1, 2012. If you have any questions, please contact: George Lovely at 518-465-0172 treatment plant or 518-269-6770 cell.

“WHY ARE YOU AFRAID?” On Sunday, June 24, 2012, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will focus on Jesus, the great comforter that he was, as he consoled his disciples one evening as they came upon a great storm while crossing the sea of Galilee. The waves were treacherous and the disciples were afraid. They panicked and they called Jesus, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Jesus responded quite calmly as he rebuked the wind and ordered the sea to be calm. The storm which came upon the disciples in that day was a physical storm, but storms come in our lives in other ways. In the sermon based upon Mark 4:34-41, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will bring his listeners to assess the many storms in their lives and more fully understand how we can resist fear by putting trust in God to care for them. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its chapel, 43 Church St., one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Church Street and Route 9J, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Sunday School has ended for the season, and “A Message for Young Folk” in worship will resume in September.
