THOMA TIRE, INC., located on Bunker Hill in Nassau is a family operated business started by Michael V. Thoma, Sr. in 1945. Originally a storefront shop, Thoma Tire moved to Nassau in 1948, then to the current location at 3725 US 20 in 1953. Michael Sr., who lived next to his business when alive, began with ‘spare tires’ and tire repair when rubber was extremely scarce and valuable after WWII. Personalized service, with one-on-one interaction between consumers and Michael Sr. continued through the 1960’s. With time, goodwill and very loyal customers, the business and building grew from two bays to four bays. Michael Jr. took over the family business after getting his degree and serving overseas in the Army in Vietnam in March of 1971. Mike Sr. kept active greeting and creating memorable quips on the Thoma Tire outdoor sign. For example, in the 1970’s,

As the business grew during the 1980’s, new technologies and practices were incorporated, and a large sales area with waiting room was added. Michael III joined the company in 1989 after completing his degree at SUNY Albany and helped move the company into the computer age by utilizing high-end tire change machines and balancers. Special tire software enables Mike and Mike to track customer purchases and service histories.

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

GM FOODS PREVALENT IN TODAY’S SOCIETY Letter to the Editor: Did you know that genetically modified foods are very prevalent in our society today? Genetically modified foods, or GM foods, are produced by organisms that have been modified by genetic engineering. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been created to produce a larger yield of crops that grow bigger than usual in a shorter amount of time, and that have stronger resistances to pests and diseases. These GM foods are sold in almost all local supermarkets and they do not even have to be labeled as being genetically modified. One example of a food that has been genetically modified is strawberries. When strawberries are found in their natural state in the wild, they are tiny pieces of fruit that are hardly worth eating. The strawberries that can be found in the supermarket are many times larger than wild strawberries. This is because scientists have taken wild strawberries and doubled or tripled the number of genes in each strawberry. In humans, one more chromosome than usual (chromosomes carry the genes) can result in Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) or Trisomy 18, which is when there are three of the 18th chromosome, instead of two. So the real question is: are these genetically modified foods actually healthy for us, or are they not? ~Aiden Coutin, 11th Grade APHS Student

Award-winning author and filmmaker Scott Christianson of Sand Lake will speak about his acclaimed new book, “Freeing Charles: The Struggle to Free a Slave on the Eve of the Civil War,” on August 1, to the Stephentown Historical Society. The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Stephentown Heritage Center on Garfield Road, Stephentown. The building is handicapped accessible. For directions or information, phone 518-7335675, or visit for a map. Christianson’s book, to which he devoted 18 years of research and writing, recounts the story of Charles Nalle, a fugitive slave from Virginia who hid out in Sand Lake and Troy before he was betrayed by Horatio Averill, the founder of Averill Park, and arrested. An abolitionist mob led by Harriet Tubman set him free in Troy and Watervliet in the most dramatic slave rescue in American history. The book has been featured on CSpan and excerpted in the Wall Street Journal. The talk will reveal local details about the struggle to end slavery on the eve of the Civil War.

SIGN-SIGN EVERYWHERE A SIGN Letter to the Editor: There is a man, a strange and funny man. He finds the need to cover his lawn with signs, yes, signs. Everywhere a sign. All displayed for passerby’s to read. (At 45 mph very difficult to read, small print) I suppose most get the gist, “Vote Them Out”, “Defend America Defeat Obama”. (No one’s told him about the 08 election results) The man does have a large Stars and Stripes and a MIA POW flag as well, Bravo, as well as a hand-written sign that Water boarding captured Bin Ladin. I’m pretty sure it was our special forces team that did that, but they are his signs. The one sign that does puzzle me though is the one that reads “America, Love it or Leave it”. Firstly, I would not refer to America as “it”, secondly if he is so unhappy with what has transpired, why doesn’t he “Leave it”? (That is his sign), “Love it (as it is, with Obama President) or Leave it”. Paradoxical isn’t “it”. Another point, about the signs, “Vote Them Out”, (the signs, plural, he has several of these) does that apply to all incumbents or just the ones he doesn’t like? I hope it is the former. Just imagine a complete purge of all the “ins” to be “out”. Every player would be equal, no power players cutting up pork to send home. Leaner budgets, lower debt. MMM Idea...Senators and Congressmen, one term, no running for office while in office, no seniors wielding power to pick and choose cabinet members or committee chairs, everyone equal. And Justice and Liberty for all. A sign of the future? ~Jeff Dorr, 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.

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never known to fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heaven. Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to answer me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh, Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal, you who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. J.K.R.

POTENTIAL CUTS TO MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY Letter to the Editor: As members of Congress and President Obama seek a resolution to the nation’s fiscal woes, seniors in New York and around the country must not be sacrificed for the sake of a stronger balance sheet. Programs like Medicare and Social Security are vital to seniors and must not be used as bargaining chips in negotiations over the nation’s debt limit. Half of all seniors rely on Social Security for 50 % or more of their income, and Medicare beneficiaries already pay an average of $5,500 each year in out of pocket costs for their medical benefits. Any loss of benefits or increase in costs would prove catastrophic to countless seniors, robbing them of their financial security and health at a time when they are most in need of support. Social Security did not contribute to the nation’s debt. Does it really make sense for it to be included in debt negotiations now taking place in Washington, D.C.? Seniors deserve peace of mind. They need to know Medicare will always provide the affordable health care they depend on and that the promise of Social Security – which they have paid into all their lives - will always be honored. The nation must deal with its debt crisis. And seniors understand that hard choices must be made, but arbitrary spending limits, privatization plans or plans that would reduce benefits are not acceptable. Balancing the budget is important to the nation’s long-term well being, but protecting Medicare and Social Security is essential to the immediate well-being of the nation’s seniors. They must not become bargaining chips. ~Marilyn Pinsky, AARP NY State President

“FEET & PAWS WALK” “Feet & Paws Walk” will be held on August 14th 2011, at the Cohoes Basin Pond and the walk starts at 7AM. Protect Wildlife in and near the Cohoes Basin Pond that runs pararell along 787 North & South bound through Cohoes. Each year, Beavers leave their Dam site in search of food and get run over by nearby passing cars. These incidents are a tragedy since nothing has been done to prevent this from occurring. The Pond gives home to many different species of wildlife and has become a wildlife preserve and attraction to many animals. We have requested from the City of Cohoes & State Agencies that a road sign and fence be installed along the pond to protect the wildlife in that area and speeding be reduced on the highway to prevent more accidents. The Pet Care Community Volunteers Started A National Program called “Feet & Paws Walk connecting people & pets across America” We are asking drivers to slow down for People, Pets & Smaller Animals that cross Americas Roadways each year. If you’re interested in walking, please call 518-3340348 or email petcare ~ Peter Louis Lonardelli, Community Volunteer!

Circles of Mercy Board Chair Kathleen Pingelski and Executive Director Richard Zazycki (far right) present the Sister Gail A. Rieth, RSM Volunteer Service Award honoring the Circles’ VITA Tax Program Volunteer Staff. Accepting the Volunteer Award is (L to R): Marilyn Hart, Dick Klee, Joanne Scheibly and Mark Owen. Circles of Mercy and the Sisters of Mercy Northeast Community recently presented their annual Sister Gail A. Rieth, RSM Volunteer Service Award honoring the VITA Tax Program Staff, for their volunteer tax prep work assisting Circles of Mercy in Rensselaer. For over 700 hours this year, Circles of Mercy provided economically challenged individuals; families and seniors, appointments with an IRS-certified volunteer who helped them file their federal and state tax returns free of charge. Circles participates in a regional coalition called CA$H (Creating Assets $avings and Hope), which supports and coordinates the free VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. Circles is the lead non-profit agency for CA$H; both for the Rensselaer County Chapter as well as the Capital Region Coalition, where it partners with the IRS, many financial institutions and other community service agencies including the United Way and Catholic Charities. Together these volunteers recently completed the filing season where 351 returns were filed resulting in combined refunds and tax credits of over $609,000 Dollars for the working poor of our community. Locally in Rensselaer County the total result was $2.4 Million Dollars the VITA program generated. Both volunteer awards were presented during the “A Taste of Mercy” annual fund raising gala recently held to celebrate “Catherine’s Circle of Friends” and to benefit Circles of Mercy.

Rensselaer County Clerk Frank J. Merola is applauding a recent state law which enforces and imposes penalties for texting or using a portable device while driving. “This is a law that I have been pushing for a long time.” Mr. Merola said, “The state needs to be commended for finally enabling primary enforcement of the prohibition against the use of portable electronic devices, such as cell phones, laptops, and blackberries. This means that the driver doesn’t have to commit any other violation of law, such as speeding or running a red light in order to ticket them for using a portable device.” Mr. Merola is referring to the original prohibition against the use of these devices as a “secondary enforcement” which meant that law enforcement could only issue a summons for this violation only if the operator committed another violation of the law such as speeding and was also caught texting. Now, a summons can be issued without the operator committing another violation of the law, “primary enforcement” and is subject to a fine of not more than $150.00 plus a surcharge of $80$85.00 depending on what local court hears the alleged violation. A violation of this use of a portable device while driving includes viewing, writing, sending or receiving of e-mail and text messages or other electronic data or playing games. Mr. Merola is convinced that this new law will reduce both traffic accidents and fatalities. “How many close calls have occurred between vehicles because the driver is too busy either texting or talking to pay attention to driving. I am convinced that enforcement of this law will reduce accidents once drivers either become aware of this law or find out the hard and expensive way that texting and driving don’t mix. Better they pay in the pocketbook rather than in the courtroom by facing serious charges as a result of their carelessness.”
