“THE CAPITAL REGION’S ROLE IN THE STORY OF THE U.S.S. MONITOR” The Troy Public Library and HVCC are pleased to announce the program, “The Capital Region’s Role in the Story of the U.S.S. Monitor,” presented by Dr. P. Thomas Carroll, executive director of the Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway in Troy, at 6:30 pm on Monday, February 11th, 2013, at the Main Library. The 1862 Civil War encounter between the U.S.S. Monitor and the C.S.S. Virginia, known as the “Battle of the Monitor and the Merrimac,” is generally agreed to be the world’s first military engagement between two ironclad vessels. The circumstances of this battle changed the course of naval warfare and eventually rendered the wooden warship obsolete. Dr. Carroll discusses the making of the U.S.S. Monitor and the battle that would not have happened had the ship not been constructed in record time in 1861-62. This program is being held in conjunction with the HVCC exhibit, “Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War,” running from January 18th through February 28th at the college. The program is free and open to the public, but please register at 274-7071 or The library is located at 100 2nd Street, Troy, NY.

Millions of people will tune in to watch two teams battle for the title of champion. While the teams may be busy prepping their last-minute offensive and defensive strategies, sports fans across the country are doing their own strategizing by planning the perfect game-day party. As the opening kickoff draws closer, here are some keys to Super Bowl party success. * Know your playing field. Your home is only so big, and that means you will have to limit the number of people you can invite. Crowding too many people into the house can be uncomfortable and dangerous, never mind trying to talk and hear above the cacophony of too many people. Take inventory of how many you can seat comfortably. You may need to move out larger furniture and move in folding chairs if you plan to accommodate more guests. If you live in a warmer climate, you may be able to hook up the television outside and host an outdoor event in the yard. This will enable even more people to attend. * Size up your competition. Super Bowl Sunday is a once-ayear event. There will be thousands of like-minded individuals planning their own parties and utilizing the same services in your local area. Those who need to rent tables and chairs and rely on a caterer (or the services of the nearest pizza joint) should plan early. If you would like to have a football gathering, start laying the groundwork a few months in advance. This way you can leave deposits for any vendors and be secure in knowing you will have what you need come game day. *Establish your play book. Will this be a chips-and-dips type of party or will you be offering more substantial fare? Is it adultsonly or are guests able to bring their kids along? Make a list of questions that need to be answered and set up the party parameters. This way you will know what to stock up on in advance. Consider allocating a separate room in the house for kids’ play or for adults who are there for the social aspect of the party and will not necessarily be glued to the television. * Check your equipment. What is the Super Bowl without a means to watch the game? Retailers often offer the best deals on new televisions this time of year because they know sports fans want to upgrade their televisions for the big game. If

yours is a TV that has seen better days or doesn’t offer the high-definition picture guests have come to expect, this may be the time to cash in holiday gift cards for a new flat-screen. If buying new isn’t a possibility at this time, there are centers that will rent electronics. * Watch the clock. Hardcore fans will not want to miss any of the action. Therefore, refreshments and other components of the party will have to coordinate to the timing of the game. Do the bulk of food preparation before kickoff and allow guests to mingle and fuel up before the game starts. Save finger foods and other snacks that are easily accessible for when the game starts. Guests can take a break at halftime and grab food and beverages that are set up buffet-style in another room. Hosts and hostesses also may want to consider serving as food “butlers” and constantly come out with new finger foods on trays and go around the room to ensure everyone doesn’t miss a moment of the game. * Don’t run interference. There’s not much entertainment that needs to be scheduled on game day apart from the game itself. Ensure that the television is situated so nobody’s view is obstructed and that people moving in and out of the room need not cross in front of the TV to get food or use the restroom. While it may be customary to decorate your home with a few decorations, ensure any decorations do not obstruct views of the game. To make things comfortable for the largest number of people, consider having two TVs tuned into the game running in separate rooms. This way, guests can mingle and not be tied to one area.

BARBECUED CHICKEN WINGS — SUREFIRE SUPER BOWL WINNERS! (MS) — The grilling experts at Broil King have some tips to make your life easier when it comes to preparing delicious grilled chicken wings. When getting started, try to select wings that are about the same size, and no matter how you grill them, make sure wings are arranged in a single layer. This ensures that they cook evenly. The basic setup is easy, cook them on the grill using a hot indirect technique — preheat your barbecue to 400o, and turn the burners on one side off. Arrange the wings over the ‘off’ side of the barbecue. Wait 5 minutes, and switch sides —burners, wings, everything — the key is to keep the wings over the unlit portion of the barbecue, minimizing flare up and the chances the wings will burn. Switching sides on the barbecue will also burn off accumulated drippings without burning the wings. Another easy way to prepare chicken wings on the barbecue is using a grill wok or basket. You can use the same hot indirect technique to protect the wings from scorching or keep a close eye on them if you are grilling over direct heat. You can even go with the ultimate in low-impact grilling and load your wings into a rotisserie ORDER basket — the turning rotisserie will keep your wings juicy and A DELI tender while minimizing flare-up. TRAY Seasoning your wings is a matter of choice — marinate FOR YOUR Please them ahead of time to impart Order flavor and moisture, use BBQ GET TOGETHER Ahead sauce, or make your own to add near the end of the cooking process. Sauces that are high in sugar burn easily, so be careful, and only keep them on for a FAMILY few minutes to finish with the OPEN OWNED & sauce. Typical cooking time is OPERATED 7 DAYS 30-45 minutes; always use an instant read thermometer to Rt. 43 - Averill Park verify that your wings are 674-3663 cooked through.

KEEP BUSY WITH FUN SNOW DAY ACTIVITIES * Put out bird seed or a suet block and feed the neighborhood birds. Compare the different species that come to grab an easy meal. Artistic kids can sketch what they see by looking out the window. * Shovel a shallow path in the snow around the yard to create a snow maze. Build snow blinds, behind which kids can hide. * Gather winter nature items, like pine cones and icicles. Look for frozen “fossils.” * Brew a thermos full of hot chocolate and go sit out with the neighbors who are probably going a bit stir crazy as well. * Check in on elderly friends and neighbors and offer to shovel their driveways and walkways, if necessary. * Pretend you are on a North Pole expedition and hike through the neighborhood in a quest to reach the summit of a mountain or to find a hidden treasure. * Use spray bottles or squirt bottles filled with water and food coloring to draw masterpieces in the snow. * Gather a clean patch of snow and pour maple syrup onto it. Allow to harden and then enjoy homemade maple candies.

PREPPING FOR KINDERGARTEN MAKES AN EASIER TRANSITION Signing up for school Each school district has its own requirements to begin kindergarten, so parents should familiarize themselves with their school district as soon as possible. One of the primary requirements is age. Children generally have to meet a certain age requirement (usually age 5), meaning their birthdays have to take place prior to or by a cut-off date. Public schools will also require proof of residence. They often require utility bills with the student’s address on them. Private schools typically have more lenient residence requirements. Most entering students also will need to have received all the necessary vaccinations. If the student has not received all immunizations, he or she will need to do so before enrolling. Getting prepared Some children are anxious to be “big kids” and begin school. Others may be nervous about what’s in store. The best way to prepare children is to think about enrolling them in some sort of social program. Preschool is the avenue many parents choose, but simply spending time together with other kids in a structured social setting is enough for many kids to get acclimated.

Talking about what to expect at school can also ease jitters. Parents can establish a school-like structure at home to illustrate their points. Have set times for meals and snacks, require small chores be done on time and set additional rules and limits. Bed time and wake times should be the same each day as well. Children who are unaccustomed to having structure may find the rigors of the classroom scary. Parents should inquire about touring the school to help calm kids’ nerves. This way children will see exactly what environment they will be working in each day.

“Love” is a powerful word that describes one of the most potent human emotions. The word is believed to have evolved from the Proto-IndoEuropean’s word “leubh,” which described care and desire nearly five thousand years ago. The word was incorporated into Old English as “lufu,” a noun meaning “deep affection” and a verb “lufian” meaning “to be very fond of.”

Red roses may signify love, but just about any other crimson-hued flower can also represent the strong emotions felt for a sweetheart — and at a much more affordable cost. When visiting the florist to have a bouquet or arrangement of flowers assembled for Valentine’s Day, consider mixing and matching some other flowers for an arrangement with flair and originality. * Dahlias: Named after Anders Dahl, a Swedish botanist, these flowers are native to Mexico but actually prefer cooler growing conditions. Dahlias come in all sizes, from small blooms of a few inches to much larger blossoms that may be a foot in width. They are related to the sunflower, daisy and chrysanthemum. The Dahlia usually is not a scented flower, which may work for people who are especially sensitive to scented blooms. * Chrysanthemums: Also known as mums, chrysanthemums are versatile flowers that symbolize optimism, joy, fidelity and love. Although mums are traditionally yellow, they can also be white, red and other hybrid hues. * Peonies: Peonies are herbaceous perennial plants that produce large, often fragrant flowers ranging in color from red to white. Peonies are highly prized by Eastern cultures, and in China they are known as the “flower of riches and honor.” * Carnations: Carnations have the scientific name of Dianthus, which means “flowers of God.” Carnations are particularly coveted because they can last long after being cut, which makes them popular in floral arrangements. Dark red carnations are said to convey affection and deep love. Because of their popularity, carnations are often easily affordable.

VALENTINE’S DAY FACTS AND SUPERSTITIONS Every February 14th people around the world exchange gifts, chocolates and romantic greetings for a day set aside for lovers. Many traditions are followed, all in the name of St. Valentine. Still, people may not understand why such customs are upheld. Much of the history of Valentine’s Dayand St. Valentine himself is shrouded in mystery, and much of what’s widely accepted is inaccurate. To set the record straight, here are some facts about the holiday. * Valentine’s Day is believed to have originated from a celebration in Rome during the fifth century. This celebration paid tribute to St.Valentine, a Catholic priest. Other historians surmise it was a way to “Christianize” the pagan holiday of Lupercalia, which was a fertility festival. Included in the traditions were boys and girls drawing names from a box and exchanging gifts. * The Catholic Church acknowledges at least three different saints namedValentine or Valentinus. * All of the stories surrounding St. Valentine — whether they are disputed or not — paint him as a sympathetic and heroic individual. * Valentine’s Day greetings have been popular from the Middle Ages onward, though they have been usually verbal in nature. * The oldest known written valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. * Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. * Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are the most popular holidays to give flowers. * According to Hallmark, women purchase 85 percent of all valentines. * According to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billionValentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year behind Christmas. * Candy was among the earliest Valentine’s Day gifts and remains a popular gift today. * Some tales suggest that the type of bird a girl watches on Valentine’sDay predicts her future husband. A bluebird indicates a happy man, while a sparrow indicates a poor man. * In Medieval times, girls consumed unusual foods on Valentine’s Day in the belief it would make them dream of their future husbands.

AP BOARD OF EDUCATION REPORT Dear Averill Park Community Members, The long term planning group (AP 2020) has held 4 meetings. The group is looking at how to position the district for the upcoming years by revising the district mission statement and goals. We would like to thank them for being part of the dialogue. Information about the planning results will be shared on the district website and Facebook page. We continue conversations with our elected officials on the local and federal levels. We met with representatives from Senator Gillibrand’s office on December 21st and State Senator Marchione’s staff on January 10th. The message we share is that public education has been hit hard by recent funding cuts and we are willing to be part of the solution to ensure our students success. The budget calendar leading up to the May 21st vote is available at the district website. During the last two board meetings, the administration has shared information on the challenges implementing the Regents reform initiative, budget guidelines, debt service schedules, as well as budgetary information for the Operations & Maintenance and Technology departments. At our January 22nd board meeting, a presentation was made on potential work needed to maintain our district facilities and technology infrastructure. The board will review the suggestions and determine if a referendum will be requested of the public as part of the May 21st vote. Please visit the district website at: http:// and Facebook page for useful information on items mentioned here along with other current happenings. ~ Sincerely, Averill Park Board of Education
