JIMINO STATEMENT REGARDING PRESERVATION OF BUCKLAND FARM IN THE TOWN OF SCHAGTICOKE “Protecting our precious farmland is vital to the high quality of life we enjoy in Rensselaer County. Our local farms create jobs, preserve open space, and produce local high quality and safe food for us all to enjoy. The preservation of these farms adds to the 1000’s of acres of farmland already protected in Rensselaer County helping ensure a bright future for this native industry. This additional 428 acres of protected land along the Hoosic River is vital to area farms which take advantage of its rich soils to produce first class crops. I want to commend the Hill and Buck families for their efforts to preserve this farmland as well as the Agricultural Stewardship Association who have been such great partners on our farmland protection projects.” ~ Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M.

UALBANY HOLDS 169th COMMENCEMENT
A STORY OF A HOUSE ON HIDLEY ROAD Wes Allen, a resident of Hidley Road in North Greenbush died last fall. I didn’t know him, but people who did, tell me that he and his wife Jennie would sell vegetables, pumpkins, corn stalks and other goods from their home. I have often driven along Hidley Road and wondered whether there was any connection between Wes Allen and the Hidley family who populated the area beginning in the late 1700’s. In reading his obituary, it seems that he did have a connection with the Hidley family. Wes’ mother Myrtle Allen was a Hidley by birth. I’ve traced the family back to Johannes Heidle who emigrated from Germany and settled in Greenbush by 1769. He leased a 211 acre farm from the Van Rensselaer extensive land holdings on what is now Hidley Road. He had three sons who eventually divided the land between them. Through tracing deeds, I believe his son Michael lived in what was to be Wes Allen’s house. Michael Hidley (1773-1856) was the grandfather of the famous local artist Joseph Henry Hidley who did several landscapes of area scenes (mostly Poestenkill), and also did a portrait of his aged grandfather. No doubt the artist visited Michael at the Allen/Hidley house. The house itself was probably built in the late 1700’s and was occupied by Michael and his young family. The floor plan and interior structure indicate the house was built in stages: the first stage was a modest home for a young family; the second stage probably around 1830 when Michael’s son John was starting a family and later additions were added by future generations. In the early 1900’s, Myrtle Hidley married Harrison Allen, a farmer and general contractor from Sand Lake and they became the owners of the house. This is where Wes Allen spent his life. Lately, I’ve spent hours climbing around the attic and fighting cobwebs in the basement trying to learn more about the architecture of this house and through this try to imagine how the families might have lived. I obtained some family pictures, some were family portraits, some of Allen family gatherings, and some unidentified houses, probably in the area. I didn’t know Wes Allen, but I wish I could have talked with him about his heritage. If only the ghosts could tell their story.

ST. TIMOTHY’S OFFERS TAI CHI CLASSES As the new school year begins for children and grandchildren, are you ready for a new challenge for yourself? Or are you looking for an hour of calm in your busy schedule? St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church, 470 Winter Street Extension, North Greenbush, offers two classes each week in the ancient Chinese practices of tai chi and qigong. The classes are on Tuesday evenings, 7-8 p.m., and Wednesday afternoons, 3-4 p.m. The classes are identical; students can choose whichever day suits their schedule. Tai chi is often referred to as “mind/body exercise.” Its slow, gentle movements are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. It has been found beneficial for people with arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and other conditions. The “mind” component of tai chi practice promotes calm and mental balance. Qigong practices are useful for enhancing the flow of qi, the body’s energy. Both practices are fun and interesting social activities. Instructor Pam Martin of Wynantskill has been teaching for over four years, and began teaching at St. Timothy’s last January. Newcomers are welcome to the class anytime. Be sure to wear flat shoes or sneakers and loose-fitting clothing. Call 701-4628 to register.

(StatePoint) Keeping your home in shape may not top your daily to-do list, but completing certain small seasonal tasks can save you money, time and the need to complete larger, more expensive projects in the future. “Investing a small amount for preventative fall home maintenance can save thousands in the long run,” Leah Ingram, personal finance expert, says. Don’t know where to start? The following checklist from HomeAdvisor can help homeowners prepare their homes for the cooler months: • Clean gutters: During the year, debris such as leaves and twigs can pile in your gutter. Cleaning them once a year prevents problems such as water damage, roof damage and flooding. •Service your furnace: A well-maintained furnace can help save on heating costs and prevent the need for repairs. Before temperatures drop, schedule your furnace to be serviced. • Install weather stripping: As fuel and electricity costs continue to rise, keeping your home warm without wasting money and energy is important. Weather stripping your doors and windows can make a big impact. • Winterize sprinklers: Removing all the water that’s in the lines, pipes, fittings, valves, sprinklers and pumps will prevent your equipment from freezing, expanding and potentially breaking. Hire a professional to attach an air compressor to the system to blow out the water from the lines, pipes and other parts. The service is inexpensive and a professional will know the proper amount of volume and pressure to use to ensure no water is left in the system. • Clean your chimney: Chimney maintenance is not optional. Deadly fires, carbon monoxide poisoning and expensive chimney repairs are serious consequences associated with neglected chimney maintenance. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends all fireplaces, chimneys, flues and venting systems be inspected at least once a year by a pro. • Flush your water heater: Generally speaking, water heaters are fairly reliable, so they usually aren’t top of mind. But flushing your water heater periodically can prevent leaks and promote efficiency. “Hiring a professional for fall maintenance tasks like these is a great idea,” Ingram says. “Use a resource such as Cost Guide to research the average price of a project in your zip code before hiring a pro.” To use Cost Guide and find a professional, visit www.HomeAdvisor.com.

HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS PERFECT FOR FALL Fall is a great season to work on your house, as the weather is often at its most agreeable once the summer heat has gone and before winter weather arrives. The following are a handful of fall-friendly home improvement projects for homeowners looking to improve their homes. Roof repair: Whether you’re repairing or replacing the roof, fall is a great time of year to dust off the ladder and get some work done on your roof for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, fall is ideal for roof work because you won’t have to be up on the roof with the summer heat bearing down on you. This can make the project move along more quickly, which is especially beneficial if you are paying laborers to work on the roof. The fewer hours workers are fixing your roof, the less you will be paying in labor costs. In addition, fixing up the roof in the fall ensures those winter storms, be it rain or snow, won’t find their way into your home via leaks. A leaky roof in winter is hard to fix, as the roof surface could be treacherous in the winter and winter winds can make it dangerous to be up on the roof at all. Addressing leaks in the fall can prevent damage to your home’s interior, which can mount up if a leaky roof is not addressed until the following spring. Window work: When the weather outside gets frightful, poorly insulated windows can allow cold air into the home. That often has a trickle-down effect on finances, forcing you to turn up the thermostat in an attempt to offset the cold air pouring into the home. Whether you need your windows replaced or simply need to patch up any leaks, a proactive approach to leaky or older windows in the fall can save you from unnecessarily high heating bills come the winter. Addressing leaky windows also makes a home more comfortable for its inhabitants. Fall is the ideal time to address a home’s windows because the temperature outside tends to be pleasant. This means you likely won’t have to make much of an effort to offset the elements, and open windows in the fall won’t make your home’s interior very hot or cold like they might if you were to tackle the project during the summer or winter.

HOME PURCHASE/REPAIR FUNDING AVAIL. for RENSS. CO. RESIDENTS Rensselaer County Housing Resources (RCHR) currently has grant funding available to assist local residents with obtaining and maintaining their homes. RCHR has been awarded grant funds under three government programs for down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers, home rehabilitation projects, and/or home modifications to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. To improve accessibility, income-eligible homeowners and renters in Rensselaer County may receive grant funding to make enhancements to their homes. Home improvements include items such as building ramps and widening doorways. The Homeowner Rehabilitation Program can assist income-eligible homeowners with home repairs such as health and safety repairs, roof replacement, structural, electrical, plumbing and heating system repairs or replacements, window replacements and energy efficiency measures. Grant funds are also available to assist income-eligible first-time home buyers with funds to be used for down payment and/or closing costs at the time of purchase.Income-eligible Rensselaer County residents outside the City of Troy may apply for these grant opportunities. In addition to income-eligibility, applicants must be current on their mortgage, property taxes and homeowners insurance at the time of application in order to qualify. For more information about these grants or other homeowner programs, visit RCHR’s website at www.triponline.org/rural or call TRIP NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center at (518) 690-0020.
(StatePoint) The average family spends more than $1000 annually — nearly half a home’s total energy bill — on heating and cooling costs, according to the U.S. government’s Energy Star program. Unfortunately, a large portion of those expenses are wasted due to poor home insulation. Homeowners prepping for winter can stop the energy waste cycle by taking a closer look at their insulation. As one of the fastest and most cost-efficient ways to reduce energy waste and lower bills, insulation traps warm air inside a home’s walls — similar to how a fleece sweater does for the body — to regulate a home’s temperature. But how do you know if your home is properly insulated? “Fortunately, there are telltale signs that can alert any homeowner that it’s time to add to or replace their home’s insulation — before the temperature plunges and the energy bill rises,” says Mike Benetti, segment manager at Roxul, a leading manufacturer of stone wool insulation. The experts at Roxul advise any homeowner with a do-ityourself mentality to run through the following checklist to determine whether their home has adequate insulation: • Vintage home: Prior to consistent building codes, most homes built before 1980 were not insulated. If your home has no materials trapping heat, energy conservation is an uphill battle. Walls, ceilings and floors are the most important areas to add insulation for an immediate, positive impact on a home’s energy usage and bills. • Non-stop furnace: Does your furnace seem to run non-stop in the winter? Adequate insulation leads to less maintenance on your heating system, as it lasts longer, runs less and will require less maintenance for long-term cost savings. • Temperature inconsistency: If you feel cold spots coming from the walls or attic, or one room of your home is drafty and another one warm, you may need to beef up your insulation. The fireplace, walls and attic are prime spots for drafts. Look for insulation that can fit snugly in rafters and other tight areas. For example, Roxul ComfortBatt insulation made from recycled stone, can be cut with a serrated blade for an exact fit. • Roof hot spots: If your shingles are exposed after a recent snowfall, chances are these “hot spots” are indicative of warm air escaping. Check your attic for adequate insulation. If you can easily see your floor joists, you should add more. Use insulation, such as stone wool, that won’t sag or lose density over time. • Mold Growth: Mold in the corners of ceilings could mean your current insulation slumps and holds moisture. If this occurs, it’s time to replace your insulation with one that does not store or transfer moisture and is completely resistant to mold, mildew, rot and bacterial growth, such as Roxul ComfortBatt. More information about properly insulating your home can be found at www.Roxul.com.

Pet Adoption of the Week PUGGY - Possible Pug & Chihuahua Mix. She is a delightful gal. She was owned by an older lady who died. Puggy & her companion Crystal were then dumped in a high kill gassing shelter where they huddled in their corner confused, scared and shaking. Puggy and Crystal were loved by their owner their whole lives until their beloved owner suddenly passed away. They would love to be adopted together but it is not mandatory. Because neither Puggy or Crystal were raised with children, a home without children is in store for them. Puggy & Crystal miss their owner's lap to sleep on and her hand to stroke them.
If you would like to meet Puggy to possibly adopt her, Contact: Marge at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherry @ 393-0755

FAMILY STYLE ROAST BEEF DINNER TO BENEFIT ANDY CUMMINGS On Friday, July 12th, our beloved 15 year old grandson, Andy Cummings was critically injured in Unadilla, NY while on his last lap of practice run on his quad. Flown by Lifestar to Upstate Medical Hospital in Syracuse, Andy was treated for a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and remained in Pediatric ICU for close to a month. Andy is now a little closer to home, working hard at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital in Schenectady, NY. He is receiving Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy daily. Although we are heartbroken, we are optimistic that our “Andyman” will make a full recovery over time. We recognize that he has a long and difficult journey ahead of him and we know that the days won’t always be easy. On October 26th, we will host a Family Style Roast Beef Dinner at the Berlin Firehouse in Berlin, NY from 4PM to 7PM to raise money that can be applied toward the tremendous amount of medical expenses Andy’s care has necessitated. All-You-Can-Eat Roast Beef Diner with Desserts, 50/50 Raffle, Silent Auction & Clowns. Fun for the whole family! Take-out also available. Tickets are $15 for Adults and $5 for Kids under 12. All proceeds go to the Cummings Family for help with Andy’s medical expenses and ongoing recovery and therapy. RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/andyman17 Buy Tickets: https://andyman17.eventbrite.com or get tickets at the door. ~ Pat, David and Davey Shuhart
HIGHLIGHT ACTING TROUPE PRESENTS STEEL MAGNOLIAS The Highlight Acting Troupe will present Steel Magnolias on Friday and Saturday, October 18, 19, 25, 26, at 8 pm; and Sunday, Oct. 20 and 27, at 2 pm. The performances will take place at the Brunswick Grange, Rt. 7 and 142 (in back of Stewart’s). Steel Magnolias is written by Robert Harling and directed by Robin Dickinson-Sawyer with Mark Strock as Asst. Director. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. The action centers on Truvy’s beauty parlour and the women who regularly gather there. The story begins on the morning of Shelby’s wedding to Jackson and covers events over the next three years, including Shelby’s decision to have a child despite having Type 1 Diabetes and the complications that result from the decision. There is also a glimpse of the unlikely friendship between Clairee and Ouiser; Annelle’s transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl and then to a revival-tent Christian; and Truvy’s relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M’Lynn, and Shelby’s medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama. For reservations or information, call Tina at 272-7558. Visit our website at http://www.highlightacting.com/ or email us at Hatactingtroupe@yahoo.com.

WHAT DO THE MUNICIPAL SYMBOLS OF THE TOWNS AND VILLAGES MEAN? The following information was provided by Sharon Martin Zankle, Brunswick Town Historian: Sometimes a government uses a drawing or “seal” to tell people what it stands for and to help identify its property such as stationary, equipment, publication or signs. The seal has a design that is unique and might show something about the organization’s history or what it thinks is special. The Brunswick Town Seal was created and drawn in 1989 by Mr. Burton Miller who lived in Brunswick and was a member of the Town Board at the time. Mr. Miller wanted to the Town Seal to tell people about Brunswick’s beautiful landscape and history. Water in the foreground represents the Town Beach and Park and the streams called the Poesten Kill and Quacken Kill. A barn represents Brunswick’s long history as a farming community. The church represents the fact that churches were the first community organizations founded by early residents of Brunswick. The hills stand for the beautiful landscape that all enjoy. The mountains behind the hills remind us we can see to the nearby Adirondack, Catskill and Taconic Mountains from certain places in the town. ~ by Marvin Bubie, Marvincan be reached at Mnobooks.com
