FFA IS ONE OF THE LARGEST YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS IN U.S. Letter to the Editor: FFA was originally known as the Future Farmers of American and in 1988; the name changed to the National FFA Organization. A group of young farmers founded FFA in 1928. These young farmers wanted to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught members that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting—it is a science, it is a business and it is an art. FFA is now more than just farming by helping its membership to develop and explore their future career plans, involving food, fiber, engineering, science and technology. An FFA chapter may be chartered in any public school with an agricultural education program. Today FFA is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with over 540,000 members in 7,439 chapters throughout all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. FFA is the largest of the career and technical student organizations in US schools working in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education My friend and fellow Dairy Princess, Breana Scribner is the Treasurer for the FFA chapter at Greenwich Central School District. Breana and I have worked together on various Dairy Princess Events including Barbeque and Bands Family Picnic, Tour de Farm, and American Dairy Association and Dairy Council District Meeting. To get more information about FFA go to www.ffa.org So why do I tell you about programs that involve farming? These programs help prepare the youth of our country to be good stewards of the land, to take care of our animals and learn the benefits and nutritional value of wholesome products like milk. When I am involved in an event many people want to know how they can become involved, Organizations like FFA, The Dairy Princess Program and 4H are a great way to start. ~ Courtney Luskin, Rensselaer County Dairy Princess 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.

HOW CAN MILK HELP? Welcome to 2013! As we enter the New Year, many of us are thinking about our waistlines. How can milk help? Milk and milk products are a great choice, because they are loaded with nutrients including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, and riboflavin. When you are thinking dinner, many of us enjoy a creamy base to our food this time of year. White Sauce is the base sauce used as an ingredient in the preparation of many casseroles, soups, gravies and sauces. We can make it low fat by using low fat or fat free milk. ~ Courtney Luskin, Rensselaer County Dairy Princess

Greetings to residents of the City of Troy. We are happy to provide constituents with a report on actions taken at the December 11, 2012 legislative meeting. There was a considerable amount of activity during December, including adoption of a 2013 county budget on December 3 that is below the state tax cap and protects needed county services. Legislators joined with the County Executive to reduce the amount of a tax increase, bringing the increase to the lowest in the Capital Region, at a minimal 1.25 percent. The 2013 budget is the second adopted by the county to comply with the state tax cap. The budget is also the latest to be adopted without promised reform of state and federal mandates. The budget protects revenues relied on by the City of Troy, and county services that Collar City residents depend on. The 2013 budget also safeguards the county’s strong fiscal standing and positive bond rating. Following the budget adoption meeting, legislators met December 8 and adopted resolutions to strengthen various public safety services and functions, and services for seniors, including van transportation. We also welcomed Abigail Blair and her family to congratulate her on being crowned Troy High School Homecoming Queen. Legislators also met on December 18 for a year-end meeting. We began the meeting with a moment of silence for the victims of the senseless attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. At the December 18 meeting, we approved repairs to the Monroe Street pump station operated by the county sewer district. The sewer district played a major role in helping create 300 new jobs at the Regeneron facility in East Greenbush. We also approved a resolution to expand efforts by the county to stop welfare fraud and abuse. The Legislature also sponsored the 17th annual Christmas Party for children at the Vanderheyden Hall youth residential facility on December 14. The party brings the holiday spirit to kids unable to return home for the holidays and is staged with contributions from legislators and local businesses. Best wishes on a happy and safe holiday season and a great and prosperous 2013. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, January 8, 2013. Residents can contact legislators at the legislative offices by writing to the Rensselaer County Legislature, 1600 7th Avenue, Troy NY 12180 or by e-mailing us via the official legislative website at www.rensselaercounty.org. applications and determine eligibility. If a parent is dissatisfied with the ruling of the designated official, he/she may make a request either orally or in writing for a hearing to appeal the decision. Holly Pawlusiak, Assistant Executive Director for Quality Assurance, whose address is Vanderheyden, PO Box 219, 614 Cooper Hill Road, Wynantskill NY 12198, has been designated as the Hearing Official. Hearing procedures are outlined in the policy. However, prior to initiating the hearing procedure, the parent or School Food Authority may request a conference to provide an opportunity for the parent and official to discuss the situation, present information, and obtain an explanation of the data submitted in the application or the decisions rendered. The request for a conference shall not in any way prejudice or diminish the right to a fair hearing. Only complete applications can be approved.

Oftentimes, buying a home opens up a bottomless pit of opportunities for projects and improvements. While some homeowners engage in different repairs and fix-ups out of necessity, many others like to freshen-up their spaces out of personal preference instead of need. But even the most wellintentioned projects can be waylaid if budgets are tight. What many homeowners may not realize is that there are many ways to make updates and changes to a home that do not require a major overhaul or a large price tag. The following are seven projects that won’t break the bank. 1. Move around furniture. You may be able to change the look of a room without spending any money. Interior designers know how to arrange furniture for maximum appeal, but the average homeowner can do it, too. Find a focal point in the room and angle the furniture toward it. Don’t make the focal point the television, however. Try changing the placement of chairs and sofas. Simply moving a curio cabinet from one corner to another may also make a difference. 2. Add lighting. Lighting at different levels in the room can create a vibrant impact. Many homeowners mistakenly put in a couple of table lamps and think that will be adequate. However, properly illuminating a room means varying the lighting to create different moods at different times. Plus, more light can make a room feel more welcoming. 3. Add new pillows or drapes. Changing a few aspects of a room can give it an entirely new look. If you want to add a splash of color but don’t know what to do, think about incorporating some new throw pillows or change the curtains. An accessory here and there in a bright color also can incorporate a new hue without it being overwhelming. 4. Change knobs or small accents. Give a room a new look by focusing on the small details. Switch out cabinet knobs for something updated and modern. Take inventory of wall outlets and light switches and think about selecting new ones that coordinate with your home decor. 5. Use plants. Empty corners or spots you’re not certain how to fill may benefit from a plant. Plants are inexpensive ways to add instant color and visual appeal to a room. Plus, having live plants can help improve indoor air by filtering out contaminants. A home with plants also feels more cozy. 6. Hang new wall art. It may be time to look at your photos and artwork and make a few adjustments. Finding new prints to hang could instantly change a room’s ambience. And you needn’t spend a lot of money on professional photography, either. Grab your camera and take a few close-up shots of flowers or take in a landscape scenery. Many of today’shome printers can produce professional-quality prints in minutes. 7. Try a new coat of paint. After you’ve exhausted other avenues, choosing a new paint color may be the new look you desire. Painting is one of the least expensive yet most dramatic methods of changing ahome’s interior. With dozens of hues to choose from, and new apps that enable you to take snapshots of things in nature or in your life and match them up to a paint color, you will have scores of opportunities to explore fresh new colors for your home. When you get inspired to make improvements to the home but fear how much it may take out of your wallet, consider inexpensive tricks that can induce a big “wow” factor.
MAKE YOUR HOME MORE ENERGYEFFICIENT Did you know that being green saves money, especially around the house? Homeowners annually lose hundreds of dollars to inefficient appliances and a drafty home. Making simple changes can benefit the planet and your bottom line. Choose the right appliances Appliances in your home as well as certain behaviors can have a considerable impact on how much energy is consumed. The Energy Information Administration reports that the average home uses approximately 1,000 kilowatt hours (kwh) each month. Kwh is measured by multiplying the number of 1,000 watts of electricity used by the number of hours the device is in use. Every appliance has a different measure of electricity usage. Here are some examples of common appliances in the home and how much energy they consume in one hour, courtesy of Bright Hub. Electric clothes dryer: 6,000 watts; Washing machine: 425 watts; Refrigerator : 188 watts; Dishwasher: 200 watts; Central AC: 6,000 watts; Window AC: 1,300 watts; Flat screen TV: 150 watts; LCD TV: 213 watts; Vacuum: 1,100 watts; Freezer: 273 watts; Water heater: 473 watts; Toaster oven: 1,200 watts; Coffeemaker: 1,200 watts; Desktop computer: 95 watts; DVD player: 25 watts; Cable box: 20 watts; Laptop: 50 watts Selecting energy-efficient appliances and using them in a conservative manner can reduce energy usage and the cost of your monthly utility bill. Try to run high-wattage appliances during the evening or early-morning hours when energy rates may be reduced. Also, if the weather will be warm, running these appliances during cooler hours prevents the home from heating up even more — possibly requiring the additional use of an air conditioner. Unplug appliances when they’re not in use to avoid vampire drain. Many appliances still draw a small amount of power even when turned off. Also, be sure to properly insulate and position appliances so they can run at the highest level of efficiency.

Rensselaer County Sheriff Jack Mahar, Member of the Troy Detachment Marine Corps and NYS Commandant Timothy M. Forbes, and Correctional Officer Dan Morrissey who spearheaded Toys for Tots for the Sheriff’s Office. (Left to right) Sheriff Jack Mahar is proud to receive the Certificate of Appreciation from New York State Marine Corps Commandant Timothy M. Forbes for outstanding support of the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots. The Rensselaer Public Safety Building was one of the official drop-off locations for Toys for Tots 2012. Toys for Tots is one of the most recognizable charitable organizations in New York. It is run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, and is supported by thousands of civilian volunteers. “This organization allows people in the community to give back to those less fortunate,” said Mahar “Toys for Tots focuses on the importance of “giving” especially to those less fortunate at this time of year.” Sheriff Mahar is also a member of the Troy Detachment Marine Corps League. Toys for Tots started in 1947 by a Marine Reservist and his wife for needy children at Christmastime. Since then, more than half a billion toys have been distributed to millions of children.

NAMI RENSSELAER ADDS A FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP IN AVERILL PARK The worst part of having a family member with mental illness is the stigma and loneliness. If we told our family and friends that our loved one had cancer or other serious disease, they would be surrounding us with support, cooking meals, and doing anything to make our life a little easier. When we talk to others about mental illness, it is almost like we said we had a serious contagious disease. No one wants to talk about it and many times, we suffer alone. We offer a place you can talk without judgment and get some much needed support. We understand because we are peersâ€Ś we all have someone who is suffering from the effects of mental illness. Nothing is taboo and we have lots of information/brochures to share. SUPPORT IS FREEâ€Ś You donâ€™t have to â€œsign upâ€? and you come and go as you need to. Please join as at either location or at both. Our newest location is The Church of the Covenant (the Round Church) on Route NY 43 in Averill Park on the Third Wednesday of each month. We meet 6:30pm to 8:00pm. We will continue to hold our bi-monthly Support Group meetings at the SUNYA School of Public Health, One University Place, Rensselaer, NY 12144 on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Again, this group meets 6:30pm to 8pm. If you would like more information on our support groups, or just need to vent prior to a meeting, please call Mary Beth at 588-6949 or Mary at 227-6701.

On January 5, 2000 we gathered in VA to await the arrival of our first grandchildren. Nan & Pop, Great Aunt Mary & Uncle Charlie as well as Great, Great Aunt Evelyn were present. Uncle Stephen arrived shortly after. We were all very excited & waited impatiently to behold these precious gifts we had waited a lifetime to see. Then the doors of the O.R. opened & the very proud dad emerged with one child in each arm. We clapped & yelled as he came to us & placed these little angels in our arms. They were so tiny & we were all in love. Stephen Hunter was the first to enter this world & Conner Preston followed. Conner made a slight sound & we were delighted to think he was talking to us. Thirteen years have now gone by & we are still in awe of these beautiful boys. They continue to bring us joy every day. We want to thank our daughter, Terri & son-in-law, Irvin McClain for giving us the opportunity to watch them grow into the fine young men they are today.

Letter to the Editor: As part of the dairy Princess Program, we have the Princesses and Ambassadors who make up the court. I do not know where I would be without my court helping me out and filling in at events. All the girls on the court are great friends; most of us show cows together and we all do many other fun activities together. One of my closest friends on the court is my Alternate, Olivia Logue. Olivia and I have known each for a long time. We are acquaintances on many levels, neighbors, schoolmates, as well as being involved in the Dairy Princess Program. Olivia wrote a little bio on herself. Hi my name is Olivia Logue. I have participated in the Dairy Princess Program for 8 years as an ambassador. Right now, I serve as the Alternate Dairy Princess participating in many events and programs. I have been a member of the Rensselaer County 4-H for 12 years. I participate in horse, dairy heifer, and sheep projects. In 4-H, I have done Dairy bowl, Horse bowl, Hippology, and Public Presentations, I have competed at the state or national level. During the summer I do many 4-H and open horse shows both locally and statewide, along with participating in the Battenkill Pony Club. I am also a member the Rensselaer County Teen Exchange, where I have traveled to Oregon and Wisconsin. In school, I am a junior and have been involved in track, cross country, art and the science research program.

SUPT. HOFFMAN ASSURES APCSD COMMUNITY of EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS Dear Averill Park Central School District Community, I wanted to share with all of the Averill Park Central School District community our processes for dealing with incidents of the type that occurred on Friday, December 14 in Newtown, CT at Sandy Hook Elementary School. For security concerns, I will not go into details of the protocols used, but please know that we have had appropriate action plans in place since 2007, and our safety drills are practiced each year without fail. We collaborate with regional health, safety, and law enforcement representatives to insure that our protocols reflect the advice of experts in the field. Our plans are regularly reviewed to examine the continued appropriateness of our procedures. Also, whenever an incident of this type occurs, the plans are automatically reviewed to make sure that the plan continues to be the best plan possible to protect all of the students and staff in emergencies. This is not just regarding an intruder in school, but all emergency situations, which include flood, fire, bomb threats, as well as intruders in the school. It is critical that our staff and students know how and where to go when an emergency happens. These drills are imperative to test our ability to be prepared should an emergency occur. As more information comes out regarding the horror that occurred on December 14, rest assured that we will use that knowledge to review and if needed, revise our emergency plans. ~ Dr. James D. Hoffman, Superintendent of Schools Averill Park Central School District
