“It’s so hard to find a good mechanic you can trust”, said a customer in the waiting area. The woman had been taken advantage of with a car repair she had the week before at another repair shop in Clifton Park. If you could see the cob job that had been done to her TH car and the price she paid, you would be appalled and 729-2263 • 56 Old Miller Rd, East Greenbush disheartened as she was. As consumers, we are at the mercy of whomever we bring our vehicles to for repair. I find this especially true as a woman. Nestled on Old Miller Rd. in East Greenbush you will find a family of mechanics that you can trust. Three generations of Reilly’s work together, Jay (referred to as Sr.), JJ (his son), who are both ASE Certified, and Paul Mahar (Jay’s grandson). In the front office/waiting room you will meet Pat Reilly (Jay’s wife) who has more knowledge of L to R: 3 Generations - Jay Reilly, JJ automobiles than most trained Reilly and Paul Mahar mechanics. J&J Reilly Automotive was founded in 2004. The business has grown and grown since then, as the word spread that the work performed there is of the highest quality, they never do unnecessary repairs and is a place you can bring your vehicle with confidence that you will not be ripped off. It’s worth shopping around for pricing when having work done on your vehicle. With more and more chain shops moving into the area, it’s easier to end up spending way more than you need to. J&J Reilly Automotive offers the best pricing in town for exhaust systems, tune-ups, suspension, brakes, oil changes, detailing, free diagnostics, replacement or rebuilt transmissions and engines. All their work is guaranteed and they will beat any competitor’s price. They also offer free coolant and battery testing. With summertime coming, keep in mind that J&J Reilly also offers free AC testing and are AC certified in repair not just recharging your system. As a family, you will find the Reilly’s to be very charitable. Before Thanksgiving, they collect frozen turkeys to donate to needy families. Before Christmas, they collect unwrapped new toys for needy children. Their generosity seems to be unending. It’s really very refreshing to see. Did you know that you can save having to replace your fuel pump if you make a practice of keeping your gas tank more than half full at all times? You can learn a lot of money saving tips sitting in their waiting room. Basically “good old common sense” is what you will find there. If you are in need of front brake pads you are “in luck”. The luck ‘o the Irish that is! On Friday, March 16th only, the Reilly’s are offering front brake pads (including labor and parts) for only $77.77!! If you take advantage of the brake special, you can also have a synthetic blend oil change and filter for only $7.77!! Please make an appointment by calling 729-2263.

TUTUNJIAN ASKS USPS TO RECONSIDER PLANNED CLOSING OF ‘BURGH POST OFFICE Rensselaer County Legislator Harry Tutunjian is asking the U.S. Postal Service to reconsider plans to close the Lansingburgh Post Office, saying the closure would unfairly inconvenience city residents. The postal service announced plans to close the post office, recently renamed the Martin G. Mahar Post Office after the former Troy mayor, later in 2012. The planned closure is part of a series of closures of post offices and postal facilities throughout upstate New York. Tutunjian said the closure of the ‘Burgh post office named after Mahar would be unfair because it would leave the city with only one post office, located on Broadway in the downtown. Closure of the post office would also hurt community identity in Lansingburgh and revitalization efforts in the area. “The closure of the Mahar post office in Lansingburgh would unfairly inconvenience city residents and take away an important part of the community’s identity,” said Tutunjian. “The post office on Broadway downtown does a solid job for customers. But a city like Troy, with a population of 50,000, deserves to have at least two post offices. Other neighboring communities have more post offices, and Troy residents deserve the same level of convenience,” added Tutunjian. “Forcing residents to travel greater distance for postal service is not going to help the post office in the long run and end up reducing their customer base at a time when they should working to keep and attract more business,” said Tutunjian. Tutunjian said he sponsored the resolution to help keep pressure on the USPS to reconsider the decision to close the Mahar post office in Lansingburgh. The resolution sponsored by Tutunjian requesting the USPS to reconsider closure of the Lansingburgh Post Office will be considered at the March 13 legislative meeting.

Annual Meeting of

ELMWOOD HILL CEMETERY Saturday, March 24th, 2012 11AM At the Cemetery Building 51 Belle Avenue, Troy, NY All interested parties are invited to attend

Greetings to residents of the City of Troy. As a new member of the Rensselaer County Legislature, I am happy to provide constituents with a report on actions taken at the February 14, 2012 legislative meeting. The February meeting was my second monthly meeting since being appointed to the Legislature following my service as mayor. I appreciate the support shown to me since being named as legislator and look forward to serving Troy as a representative in the Legislature. Recognizing the need to trim taxpayer expenses and do more with less, I sponsored a resolution to allow the Troy Housing Authority to utilize county bid lists. This shared services approach will hopefully help reduce expenses for the THA and continue to encourage efficiency throughout county government. We also approved a resolution supporting statewide expansion of DNA testing, and were supported by the father of Arica Lynn Schneider, a Troy girl who was murdered and whose case was solved thanks to DNA technology. One issue that many constituents spoke to me about since my appointment involved the blackout of televised broadcasts of Knicks and Rangers games. The blackout was due to a contractual dispute between Time Warner and Madison Square Garden and meant fans were unable to watch games for nearly two months. Many fans told me of their disappointment at missing so many games, including the first games of Jeremy Lin of the Knicks and the strong play of the Rangers. I was upset because of the high prices paid by cable subscribers who expected these games to be part of their service. At the February 14 meeting, I sponsored a resolution calling for the Attorney General and other state officials to help resolve the issue. I was happy that just several days later, a tentative agreement was reached and games again broadcast. I was disappointed to learn First Niagara will close several bank branches, including the historic former headquarters of Troy Savings Bank on Second Street. The building is home to the Troy Music Hall, which is slated to remain open. I look forward to helping protect this historic and important structure. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, March 13, 2012. Residents are welcome to contact me 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

As legislative representatives of District 3, including the towns of Brunswick, Pittstown and Schaghticoke, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the February 14, 2012 legislative meeting. We are proud the Legislature recorded a savings of more than $140,000 during 2011. The savings are due to many cost-cutting measures employed during the previous year, including reduction of positions, minimizing employee raises well below the cost of living, and avoiding costly equipment upgrades. The savings in 2011 follow savings of $129,000 in 2010 and a savings of $160,000 in 2009. Along with the savings in our legislative offices, we are proud to have achieved a savings of $900,000 over three years thanks to a comprehensive rebid of the county’s insurance policy. The Legislature joined to support a resolution calling for expansion of the statewide DNA database to ensure the latest technology is used for justice. The State Senate and Governor Cuomo are supportive of the expansion, and action is pending in the Assembly. The Legislature also heard from Paul Schneider, whose daughter Arica was murdered and case recently solved by DNA technology. Continuing efforts to reduce costs, we approved a resolution asking the state for counties to have the opportunity to optout of Medicaid services not required by the federal government. The opt-out, if granted by the state, would not affect the basic services provided to Medicaid recipients while creating an opportunity for savings. The Legislature adopted a resolution noting the retirement of Jerome K. Frost as Public Defender for the County. Jerry was a member of the Public Defender’s office for nearly two decades and represented defendants in some of the biggest criminal cases in the county. Legislators also approved use of state grants to help provide maintenance of snowmobile trails in areas of the county. The trails help increase tourism, and also help protect private property and farmland. Speaking of farmland, the Legislature also approved a resolution starting the review period for Agricultural District 6, which includes many properties in southern Rensselaer County. Tom Walsh was also appointed to the county Soil and Water Conservation Board. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, March 13, 2012. Residents are welcome to contact us at our 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

380 N .Gr eenb ush Rd • Tr o y ~ 283-1166 N.Gr .Greenb eenbush Empties for Animals" Campaign To Run All Year! Goldstein Auto Group Helping Mohawk Hudson Humane Society ALBANY, NY (02/29/2012)- What started out to be a Super bowl campaign to benefit The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has snowballed into a year round program for The Goldstein Family Auto Group, Thanks to the hundreds of donations of cans and bottles The Goldstein Family Auto Group has received from the community, coupled with the MHHS 125th Anniversary, Goldstein Auto is committed to continuing their part of the campaign year round. Since coming on board, The Goldstein Family Auto Group has set up depositories in each of their four dealerships to help collect cans and bottles from patrons, staӽ, and families, wanting to help the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Menands, New York. The cans and bottles turn into dollars for the organization to help care for and place the animals they have at the shelter. "Our Goal for the 125 Anniversary is to encourage the community to help collect 1,562,500 which would translate into $125,000 to MHHS. " said Stefanie Goldstein, a principal in the Goldstein Family Auto Group and daughter of President Alan Goldstein. "This is only 637,500 more bottles and cans than last year. If everyone continues the momentum we have had already, we can do it!" Last year the Society's "Empties for Animals" program generated over $74,000 in revenue. Individual members of the community, school groups and other organizations dropped oӽ more than 925,000 cans and bottles. Volunteers sorted all those bottles and cans based upon the originating distributor, which in turn generated 8 cents per can/bottle instead of the regular 5-cent redemption fee paid at stores. Monies from the programs were used to benefit the more than 6,500 animals cared for by the Society in 2011. "As an added incentive The Goldstein Family has commissioned our trucks and drivers to make pick ups from around their area neighborhoods, restaurants, schools, event destinations, anywhere they need us to" added Stefanie. "If everyone who does not save their recyclables currently starts saving them, we can make a huge diӽerence." With Earth Day just a few months away, weekly totals received at all Goldstein Auto locations will increase as the group does plan to participate in "A Billion Acts of Green" one of the Earth Day organizations April programs. They are using the power of their advertising, website, facebook page and show rooms to spread the word to recycle and help save abandon, elderly and abused animals rescued and cared for by The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.

People can drop oӽ their cans and bottles to any of the four Goldstein locations: ~ Goldstein Buick/GMC, 1671 Central Avenue, Albany ~ ~ Goldstein Chrysler Jeep Dodge, 613 Loudon Rd, Latham ~ (across from Hoӽman's Playland) ~ Goldstein Subaru, 1754 Central Avenue, Albany ~ ~ Goldstein Mitsubishi, 1673 Central Avenue, Albany ~

CHANGES IMPACTING YOUR TAX RETURN THIS YEAR (NAPSA)-Three out of four taxpayers received a refund from Uncle Sam last year, averaging $2,805. This year’s amount should be about the same, thanks to a few major tax law changes expiring or added during 2011. Although your bottom line may change little, there are changes you should be aware of for this year’s tax return. “Unless lawmakers extend them, this will be the last year to claim several wellknown tax breaks,” according to TaxACT spokesperson Jessi Dolmage. “Take advantage of them while you still can. With 2012 being an election year, it’s anyone’s guess as to what changes could be in store for next year’s return.” Before you do your taxes, read this summary of the more notable changes that may affect your federal return this year.*The filing deadline is Tuesday, April 17, 2012, because April 15 is a Sunday and Washington, D.C., is recognizing Emancipation Day on April 16. Don’t use the later deadline as an excuse to procrastinate, though. When you rush, you’re more likely to make mistakes that could cost you money and time. Furthermore, filing, paying or providing information late will result in IRS penalties that have increased this year.*Your 2011 tax return could be your last chance to claim one of the credits for energy-efficient home improvements as well as deductions for tuition and fees, educator expenses, mortgage insurance premiums, and the option to include your state and local sales taxes paid as an itemized deduction (in lieu of state and local income taxes paid).*The Making Work Pay Tax Credit and Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit (unless it was a new fuel-cell vehicle) that you could claim last year have expired. The Making Work Pay Tax Credit was essentially replaced by the payroll tax holiday for 2011, which employees and the self-employed already received in 2011 paychecks through a reduction in FICA-OASDI Social Security taxes. Unlike the Making Work Pay Tax Credit, employees who benefited from the payroll tax holiday don’t need to claim it on this year’s tax return. *The amount of the Health Coverage Tax Credit decreased to 72.5 percent for qualified health insurance coverage received be-

TALK ABOUT INVESTMENTS TO HELP PARENTS AVOID FRAUD (NAPSA)-Most children turn to their parents for financial guidance. Sometimes, however, it’s the parent who needs help. Older people are regularly targeted by fraud criminals because they have money, whether it’s retirement savings, home equity or steady forms of income. Experienced investors may also believe they’re too smart to be scammed. Research funded by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation shows, surprisingly, that financially savvy, self-reliant investors are more likely to be victims of fraud than those who are less knowledgeable.”Investors who are overconfident about their ability to spot a ‘great opportunity’ are less likely to ask for help and advice from others,” said Gerri Walsh of the FINRA Foundation. “And that’s exactly what fraud criminals want.” Adult children should talk to their parents about investment fraud and be sure they are familiar with the tactics that fraud criminals use, Walsh said.”Trick$ of the Trade: Outsmarting Investment Fraud,” a documentary produced by the Foundation and airing on public television stations, explains these tactics and the steps that investors can take to protect themselves. Free copies of the movie can be ordered on the Foundation’s fraud-fighting website, The website also offers information on how to check the background of a financial professional and the legitimacy of securities. “It may be hard for some people to talk about money,” Walsh said, “but getting your parents to come to you or someone else they trust for a second opinion before making an investment decision is a good way to avoid trouble.” It is a discussion Robert Kalinowski, a 25-year veteran of the Vermont State Police, wishes he had had with his father.The older Kalinowski was befriended by a financial advisor. The two would go to high school sporting events together-but the friendship was a ruse to steal $100,000 in an investment scheme.”I did not see this happening,” Kalinowski said. “I felt rotten. I was supposed to protect everybody...but I did not see this coming.”Checking the advisor’s registration to sell securities would have revealed that he was no longer licensed. The advisor was eventually charged with embezzlement and grand larceny but died before the trial.”No matter what, it can happen to anybody,” Kalinowski said. “They have to check before they invest their money, ask questions, ask the experts, do research. If it could happen to our family, it could happen to you.” tween March and December 2011. *If you converted a traditional IRA to a designated Roth IRA in 2010 or rolled over a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, but did not report the taxable amount on your 2010 tax return (due April 2011), you must report half the amount on this year’s return and the other half on your 2012 return. Details are available in IRS Publication 575 at*Amounts for standard mileage, standard deductions, personal exemptions and the Alternative Minimum Tax have increased. Note that there are different standard mileage rates for miles driven before July 1 and after June 30. Details about all increases and other tax law changes can be found in IRS Publication 17.Online and downloadable tax preparation programs make navigating tax law changes easy. When choosing your software, Dolmage reminds you to carefully weigh your options, especially if you’re using a free solution. “Make sure it covers your tax situation. Many free federal products only cover simple returns, like Form 1040EZ returns. Most taxpayers need forms and schedules that are only included in overpriced solutions.” Dolmage says TaxACT Free Federal Edition is for simple and complex returns, including those with itemized deductions and income from self-employment, investments, rental properties and farms. TaxACT also includes free federal e-filing, guarantees for maximum refund and accuracy, and unlimited free tax help via e-mail.For more information about tax law changes, visit and taxinfo.

TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR CREDIT CARDS by John A. Addison(NAPSA)-If you’re not careful, it can be easy to let credit card spending become the force that drives your finances. Fortunately, there are a few practical steps you can take to get back in control. Here are some tips from the financial experts at Primerica on when to put your credit cards away:After midnight. Your judgment may be off at this time of day, so it’s best to turn off the computer, put your card away and wait until morning.When you’re near your credit limit. Credit counselors advise staying away from even a couple of hundred dollars of your credit limit to avoid any negative impact on your credit score.When you get a notice that your rate will go up. You may be able to negotiate with your credit card company for the old rate, switch to a new company with a lower rate or avoid using credit altogether.You’re paying one card with another, habitually. If you’re bouncing your balance around from one card to the next, you should be aware that moving it around every six months or so may show up on your credit report. Also note that transfer fees have gone up to about 4 percent of your debt.If you don’t have a plan for paying it off. If you’re still charging more than you can pay off each monthwhich is another way of saying too much revolving debt-and don’t have a plan for paying it off, it may be time to get some help.Mr. Addison is Primerica’s Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Primerica Distribution.

I want to commend them on a job well done that ensures the well being of our most frail elderly who deserve that high level of care,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino.
