INDIA BOOK STUDY GROUP Travel to India through books with a four-week excursion —we have two literary ports of call supplemented with lectures, films clips, and current material. Join us at the Troy Public Library on Mondays, January 13th, 20th & 27th, from 6PM – 8PM. Our first book is the novel The Death of Vishnu by Manil Suri, the story of a man who does errands for the residents of an apartment block; how is his life different from those who live above? What does this tell us about Indian society, or about our own? Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire by Alex Van Tunzelmann is an historian’s account of the birth of modern India and Pakistan. You will meet Gandhi, Nehru, Jinnah, and Mountbatten in detail you haven’t seen before. A fascinating story of a troubled time. Your host for the journey is Professor Bruce C. Browne, who lived in India for eighteen years while attending Woodstock School. He and his wife have since lived in Iran and Qatar, and enjoy travel. Copies of The Death of Vishnu are available at the circulation desk. This program is free and open to the public. Registration is necessary. For more information and to register, call the library at 274-7071 or online at www.thetroylibrary.org. The Troy Public Library is located at 100 Second Street, Troy, NY.

TAMARAC HIGH SCHOOL 1st QUARTER HONOR ROLL
LEGIS. APPROVES RESOLUTION TO ASSIST FORT ORANGE REVITALIZATION PROJECT The Rensselaer County Legislature approved a resolution supporting efforts to revitalize the Fort Orange Paper Company property in Castleton during the year-end meeting on December 17. The resolution approved unanimously at the December 17 legislative meeting allows for access to the property, which is controlled by the county, and continue work to make the property ready for active use. “Revitalizing the Fort Orange property and returned to active use is at the top of the county’s priority list for 2014. This is a major property for economic development purposes and restoring Fort Orange to active use would be a major accomplishment,” said Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid. The Legislature has been an active supporter of efforts to revitalize Fort Orange. Several years ago, the Legislature played an active role in bringing the federal Environmental Protection Agency to the site to remove asbestos. The EPA removed approximately half of the asbestos from the large property, located on Route 9J near the Hudson River. Efforts to revitalize Fort Orange, which closed in 2000, have been delayed because of the presence of asbestos and due to the property essentially being abandoned. Legislators have touted the property, noting the site has rail access and proximity to the Thruway, I-90 and other major roads. The property is sizable and able to accommodate many different uses, legislators note. “We are growing optimistic about the future of the Fort Orange property. Rensselaer County is ready to work cooperatively with the private sector and some interested parties to revitalize this important property in Castleton,” said Legislator Judith Breselor, a member of the Legislature’s Planning Committee. “The Fort Orange site was a vital part of the economy in southern Rensselaer County for generations. At its peak, Fort Orange operated three shifts a day, and was a source of employment to many in Castleton and surrounding communities for years. We want to see a return to that activity at the Fort Orange property,” said Legislator Alex Shannon, chairman of the Legislature’s Environmental Committee.

(NAPSI)—Here’s a health idea you can sink your teeth into: Leading physicians and veterinarians say dental health is important for people and animals. Gum disease has been linked to such illnesses as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.Another connection is that oral health is sometimes overlooked in both, explains Thomas G. Nemetz, DVM, Ph.D., an Adjunct Professor at St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine, where he coordinates and teaches twice-yearly dental courses to third-year veterinary students. “As you begin taking care of a pet’s oral condition, his or her health drastically improves,” he said. “In the last 20 years, we have been doing a better job at keeping the oral cavity healthy—in both pets and humans. Our pets are living longer, as are we, in part because of good preventative dental care.”Dr. Nemetz advised having oral health exams as part of routine office visits to cut down on periodontal diseases. According to Dr. Nemetz, about 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop periodontal disease, requiring treatment by 3 years of age.Learn more at www.sgu.edu/school-ofveterinary-medicine/ index.html. From exotic to small animals, orthopedics to ophthalmology, St. George’sUniversity’s School of Veterinary Medicine prepares students for a world of global health care.
FEEDING YOUR FELINE: COMMON CAT CHALLENGES by Dana Watkins, M.S., Animal Nutrition (NAPSI)—As a nutritionist specializing in pet food, I receive countless questions about finding the right food for cats, especially those with dietary challenges.Finicky FelinesIt is important to note that finding the right food for your cat is a process. While the food must supply the required nutrients, to do so it has to be consumed. Cats often have personal preferences as to specific tastes and textures. My company, for example, offers five unique, dry cat foods and four artisan canned cat foods. They present a variety of ways to meet your cat’s desires. Canned vs. Dry When it comes to delivering the right nutrients to your cat, dry or canned foods can achieve the same results. While dry food is often more cost effective, canned foods usually contain about 80 percent moisture, which can be beneficial if your cat needs more moisture intake. Urinary Stones and Crystals Often, cats have urinary tract problems caused by stones and crystals. Research suggests many factors involved in the cause and prevention of urinary tract issues. These include excessive amounts of poorquality nutrients, individual metabolism, water consumption, urine pH, incorrect mineral balance and, according to one new study, stress. In any case, however, since some cats do not drink adequate amounts of water, increasing water consumption can help.Increasing water consumption will increase the frequency of urination and help dilute the solid portion of the urine, making it more difficult for stones and crystals to be formed.Ways to increase water consumption include:• Leave a faucet dripping that cats have access to.• Use two or three recirculating or waterfall-type watering bowls.• Feed canned foods either as a meal or as a topper three or four times per week.• Add water to the dry food.• Use small ice cubes as treats.• Mr. Watkins is the on-site nutritionist and technical services specialist at Fromm Family Foods, a fourth-generation, family-owned company specializing in premium dog and cat nutrition.To learn more, visit www.frommfamily.com
SQUIRREL-PROOF BIRDFEEDER (NAPSI)—If your heart takes wing at the sight of birds in your yard, consider these seven suggestions for saving the seeds you leave them from squirrels: 1. Location: Mount birdfeeders on a smooth metal pole at least six feet high. Prune any branches within a 12-foot radius. 2. Baffles: Install baffles, at least 15 inches wide and sloped, between the top of the feeder and its hanger or between the ground and the feeder. 3. Spinners: String spinners on a horizontal line. 4. Seed: Squirrels are less attracted to nyger, millet, safflower, canary and canola seeds. 5. Clean: Remove any debris and spilled seed from around the feeder. 6. Traps: Live traps can harmlessly catch and relocate squirrels. 7. Squirrel-Proof Feeders: There are several kinds. Squirrel-resistant feeders have doors that close when triggered by the squirrel’s weight. Metal feeders help minimize the damage from hungry squirrels. Wire cages around a birdfeeder can keep squirrels out but may prevent large birds from accessing the feeder as well.

FEDERAL GOVT. TAKES ACTION ON RADON GAS TO PREVENT DEATHS
You’re Losing $$$
January is National Radon Action Month, according to The EPA. Health agencies throughout the United States have joined forces to promote action against the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. The American Lung Association, Centers for Disease Control, and National Cancer Institute all agree that radon is a National health problem and encourage radon testing during the January call to action. Radon is a naturally-occurring, invisible and odorless radioactive gas. One in 15 American homes contains high levels of radon. Millions of Americans are unknowingly exposed to this dangerous gas. In fact, a recent study by Harvard University ranks radon as Americas #1 in-home hazard. By taking simple steps to test your home for radon and fix if necessary, this health hazard can be avoided. If a home hasn’t been tested for radon in the past two years, EPA and the Surgeon General urge you to take action. Contact your state radon office for information on locating qualified test kits or qualified radon testers. For more information, visit www.RadonMonth.org.

IBHS PROVIDES WINTER WEATHER RESOURCES As another arctic cold front with frigid temperatures makes its way through the Midwest and into the Northeast and Southeast regions of the country, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) provides severe winter weather guidance for home and business owners in those areas. Find out how you can reduce damage to your property from freezing weather by visiting http:// www.disastersafety.org/freezing_weather. “Heavy snow and freezing temperatures can burst pipes, cause roofs to collapse and lead to interior fires as people use various alternative heating sources to stay warm,” said Julie Rochman, president and CEO of IBHS. “There are steps you can take now to better withstand the effects of severe winter weather that will help avoid costly repairs and headaches later.” Install Weather Stripping and Seals: One thing you can do now to prevent freezing temperatures from entering your home or business is to install weather stripping and seals. This offers two major benefits – it will keep severe winter weather out of your home or business and seal your property shut, as well as greatly increase energy efficiency by limiting drafts and reducing the amount of cold air that enters. Inspect the following areas of your home or business for leaks to determine possible areas to seal: Windows and doors; Vents and fans; Plumbing; Air conditioners; Electrical and gas lines; Mail chutes; Learn how to install weather stripping and caulking at http://www.disastersafety.org /disastersafety/installingweather-stripping-seals. Stay Safe and Warm: Alternative heating sources can help you stay warm during the cold weather, especially during power outages, which often occur due to heavy snow and ice, as well as high winds during winter storms. It’s important to prepare a plan now before a possible outage. Check IBHS’ guidance before selecting, installing or using an alternative heating source such as a wood stove, space heater or fireplace: http://www.disastersafety.org/wp-content/ uploads/alternative-heating.pdf. Prevent Frozen Pipes: Frozen pipes are one of the biggest risks when the temperature drops, which can result in more than $5,000 in water damage, according to IBHS research. Provide a reliable back-up power source to ensure continuous power to the building. Insulate all attic penetrations where cold air can get inside the building. Ensure proper seals on all doors and windows. Install insulation and/or heat trace tape with a reliable power source on wet sprinkler system piping. Place a monitored automatic excess flow switch on the main incoming domestic water line to provide early detection of a broken pipe or valve when the building is unoccupied.

BREAKFAST SERVICE OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY - SAND LAKE The annual Breakfast Service of Prayer for Christian Unity will be held Saturday, January 18, at the Church of the Covenant, Route 43, Averill Park. The breakfast will begin at 9:00 am, sponsored by the Sand Lake Area Association of Churches. Walk-ins are welcome without reservations. The breakfast will be a buffet prepared by men of the Church of the Covenant. A voluntary donation ($10 recommended) will be received to defray the cost of breakfast and to support the ecumenical community outreach of CoNSERNS-U/Reach in Rensselaer County, a program of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany. This will be an ecumenical celebration of the Word of God as part of the area’s observance of the annual international Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer is celebrated January 18-25 each year in cities and towns across the country and around the world. The theme for the 2014 observance is “Has Christ Been Divided?”, based on the Scripture I Corinthians 1:13. The theme and the text for each year’s international observance are chosen and prepared by representatives of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and representatives of the World Council of Churches. The international texts are developed, adapted and published for use in the United States by the Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute in Garrison, NY. For more information, please contact Pastor Bob Loesch, 518-674-8204, email@example.com
