THE NEEDS OF THE APCSD TAXPAYER! Letter to the Editor: It’s time to consider our alternatives. It’s time that we have a board that considers our children first. We need a board that does not toy with our emotions. We need a transparent, open and honest board. We need to make sure that our children have what they need first. We need reasonable school taxes - we don’t need higher paid administrators. We need teachers in the classroom, We need full day kindergarten, We need a Transportation Department that’s run efficiently with no outsourcing. We don’t need to budget $250,000.00 for overtime. Time and time again individuals ask the Board of Education a question and the response is we will get back to you. This is totally, completely and 100% unacceptable - the board’s fiduciary duty is to the taxpayer and questions should be answered. It’s time as taxpayers that we make a change. We, as the silent majority, have an opportunity to change the direction of the BOE on May 15, 2012. ~ Stuart Nippes, Averill Park 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.

These writings were compiled into a keepsake book that Mr. Lynskey was thrilled to receive. Mr. Lynskey had total of 21 years in education and 30 years in public service.

SUICIDE SURVIVORS REMEMBRANCE CEREMONY “Suicide: a permanent solution to a temporary situation; the coward’s way out; such a selfish act.” Since 2005, when I became a suicide survivor in January and again in October, I’ve had the painful experience of hearing these statements all too many times. The stigma attached to suicide is a horrific one, and those who have been fortunate enough to not have experienced Nathalie Evans lost her such a loss may never daughter to suicide on understand the damage that such hurtful comments may October 7, 2005 cause. Suicide is not a rare occurrence. It is estimated that every 40 seconds, someone dies to suicide, leaving behind family and friends who struggle with an overwhelming myriad of emotions, including guilt, anger, confusion, frustration, embarrassment and hopelessness. If someone close to you has completed suicide, you, like me, are a suicide survivor. Mark your calendar today for an inspirational and therapeutic event; a place where you can talk, share and even cry with other survivors who understand what you’re going through. On Sunday, May 6, 2012, Family & Children’s Service of the Capital Region will be sponsoring their annual Suicide Survivors Remembrance Ceremony at St. Joseph’s Provincial House in Latham. Have your loved one remembered in our memory book and video montage and light a candle in their honor, all of which you will take home as lasting mementos. For more information, contact Nathalie Evans, Planning Committee Chair @ 813-4346; or Linda Quinn, FCSCR @ 462-6531.

COUNTY HONORS US ARMY WWII VETERAN CURTIS LEE JONES The late Curtis L. Jones, awarded a Purple Heart Medal after being reported Missing In Action following a military engagement that took place in November, 1944, was recognized on Monday, March 12, 2012, by the Rensselaer County HonorA-Deceased Veteran Committee and County officials. Jones, one of the individual’s for whom the Sullivan-Jones VFW Post in Poestenkill is named, was one of four sons born to Lee and G Louise Jones, along with Livingston, Russell, and, Warren, and served in the United States Army during WW II. After being declared Missing in Action in 1944, the remains of the Poestenkill soldier were not recovered until 16 years after the combat operations near Heistern. During April, 1961, German work crews discovered Jones’ remains in an unmarked grave while performing excavation work as part of a quarry expansion project in Langerwehe, in the vicinity of where Jones was reported missing. On May 30, 1961, Private Jones remains arrived back to the United States where he was finally laid to rest with full military honors on June 1, 1961 at the Meadowlawn Cemetery in Petersburgh NY. “Curtis L. Jones put his life on hold to serve his nation and in doing so made the supreme sacrifice when he was killed in action. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to him and his family for their service and sacrifice,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino.

“IN THE PARK” AP ART STUDENTS EXPAND THEIR PORTFOLIO THROUGH SUMMER ART PROGRAMS While the school year may be rapidly coming to a close, Averill Park art students are eager to continue their learning process into the summer. Many students, like juniors Ava Welling, Sarah Caruso and Adam Heising are continuing their art studies during their summer vacation by enrolling in summer programs. Ava Welling explained that she is seriously considering going to UCLA for the summer to develop her art skills and gain life experience. She discussed how enrolling in extended summer art programs is a great way to get a taste of the college life. Students stay in dorms and put in their studio time just like they would in college, being away from home and family is just all part of the experience. But even more than that, art is a big part of Ava’s life. “When I’m stressed, I sketch. It’s a therapeutic thing,” she says. Many artists claim to “lose time” when they’re creating, artists get lost in their work and for a short period of time, get to escape. Not to mention, the summer program counts as a school credit, putting Ava in better standing when it becomes time to start applying for college. “Colleges like to see that you’re doing things outside of school.” By going to a summer program, students are able to round out their portfolio; they can take classes that are not currently offered by the high school curriculum. By simply having more work to choose from, the portfolios become stronger and students have more of a competitive edge needed to be accepted into college programs and earn scholarship money. After high school, Ava is considering attending college for fashion and using her art background as a way to further herself in the field. ~ Courtney Kane, Averill Park High School Arts Editor

Legislators joined to support a statewide expansion of the DNA database. DNA technology helped solve a double homicide in Troy last year and will help the cause of justice. The Legislature renewed a request for the state to investigate persons on public assistance who repeatedly call for expensive ambulance transport for non-emergencies. Legislators welcomed Henry Bauer as a member of the County Legislature to fill a vacancy as a representative of Troy. Hank has years of service, including service as Troy City Court Judge and City Councilman. He joins former Troy Mayor Harry Tutunjian, who was appointed earlier this year to serve as a representative from Troy following a vacancy. The Legislature also heard the annual State of the County address by County Executive Jimino in which she described the ongoing pressures caused by unfunded federal and state mandates. We also welcomed Joe and Carol Cybulski to the Legislature to receive a copy of resolution passed in memory of Joe’s father, Anthony “Shorty” Cybulski. Shorty served with the U.S. Navy during World War II and became an honorary member of the Sand Lake Kiwanis. Joe capably served the county as Commissioner for the Aging and he and Carol continue to be active in the community. Martin was invited by Governor Cuomo to participate in a billsigning ceremony for a series of pension reforms. Martin was among the first elected officials in the Capital Region to support this effort, and the Legislature unanimously adopted a resolution of support just before state lawmakers approved the legislation. Nassau resident Joe Wilkinson proudly served our country overseas with the Air Force, but following his service, has suffered from a debilitating illness. Actor Gary Sinise came to Nassau on March 12 to publicize a concert featuring his band to benefit Joe at the Washington Avenue Armory and Martin and Judy were there, along with Harry Tutunjian. Tickets are available at The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, April 10.

As Rensselaer’s representative to the County Legislature, I am happy to report to you on the actions taken by the Rensselaer County Legislature at our March 13, 2012 legislative meeting. County Executive Jimino delivered her annual State of the County address to legislators and members of the public at the March meeting. She spoke of the pressures created by unfunded state mandates and the ongoing economic recession. These factors have threatened needed services, including services for seniors and kids. During the consideration of the 2012 county budget, I am proud we were able to prevent closure of the Rensselaer senior center due to fiscal issues. My focus during 2012 is to continue to work to protect services relied on by our seniors. Our seniors have given so much to build our community and deserve a level of care and attention in their golden years. This year, I helped secure some county funding for the Southern Rensselaer County Boys and Girls Club. The Club has been a center for many kids and families in the city and surrounding area and I look forward to many more years of service from the Club for our youth. To help meet these challenges, legislators have worked to reduce costs, including a $900,000 savings for insurance and over $400,000 in reductions in the legislative budget. At the March 13 meeting, legislators called for a state review of chronic callers, persons who repeatedly call 911 for ambulance transport to hospitals, costing taxpayers and creating increased demands on emergency service providers. DNA technology helped solve a double homicide after the county Probation Department ordered a DNA test of a man implicated in a domestic violence incident. We approved a resolution supporting expansion of the DNA database across the state. An expanded DNA database helps bring those responsible for crime to justice, protects victims of crime and helps those wrongly accused. There is currently an effort to link together alumni from Rensselaer schools. To join, please go to and search for Group Page Rensselaer Grade School and HS Alumni. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, April 10, 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 at

NEW YORK YOUTH NAMED NATIONAL EPILEPSY SPOKESPERSON Teagan Ketchum, 17, of Averill Park, N.Y., will travel to Washington, D.C., to raise her voice in the fight for the rights for people living with epilepsy. Teagan will participate in the Epilepsy Foundation’s annual Kids Speak Up! program from April 1 through April 3, and become a part of the democratic process as a leading voice for the nearly 3 million people living with recurrent seizures. “Teagan was selected to participate in Kids Speak Up! because while she has been through eight surgeries to manage her epilepsy, she has been a positive and happy teen through it all. Teagan has been able to educate her classmates and ice hockey teammates about epilepsy and is able to live a full life through her hard work and dedication to finding the best treatment,” said Donna Meltzer, Epilepsy Foundation senior director, government relations. Kids Speak Up! is a national program that trains young ambassadors with epilepsy between the ages of 13 and 18 to become advocates in their local communities and in the nation’s capital. Their mission is to personally petition congressional leaders for aid in assuring better access to care, improved public awareness and education, as well as more funding for research toward a cure for epilepsy. As one of 44 Kids Speak Up! spokespersons, Teagan will participate in a 3-day training to learn more about epilepsy, develop her public speaking skills and learn the importance of advocacy. The highlight of her trip will be a meeting with her Senators and Representatives to urge support of efforts to improve public understanding of the condition and increase aid to further research for a cure.

A COMMUNITY TREASURE Letter to the Editor: I am writing this letter to introduce the readers of the Advertiser to Audra Bentley from our local Curves in 43 Mall. I have belonged to Curves for 5 years with Audra being the owner for the past three. This letter is to talk about how Audra goes the extra mile and has formed a community within Sand Lake. If you came to Curves, you would see the many bulletin boards full of local information about community events, but more importantly, about the many needs in the Sand Lake community. When I last looked, we were seeking to provide clothes and other items for a family who just lost their home in a fire. We have our big water jar where we can contribute to the Humane Society. If you go there, take time to read the lovely thank you notes from Doors of Hope for the money, food and reusable plastic bags this wonderful local organization has received over the years. When Diane Hale, a beloved member of our community passed away last year, Audra planted a flower bush with a dedication to Diane. The “girls” of Curves love the almost continuous garage sale we have which raises and contributes funds to several institutions. Among these is Joseph’s House, Food Pantries of the Capital District and of course, Doors of Hope. We save box tops for Education and silk scarves for Women of the Congo. This is just a small picture of the all the good that Audra promotes. Last, but certainly not least, is the bond that has formed among many members of Curves who have become friends. Christmas time was certainly a reflection of that with gifts, a child adopted from Doors of Hope and homemade delicacies shared at a party. I love going to Curves, but this is not a commercial for Curves, it is a tribute to Audra who really is a special lady and an inspiration to all. Thank you Audra for being you and sharing that you with us. ~ Marie Johnson, Averill Park

WWW.PARKPLACESHOP.COM OBJECTION TO DOLLAR TREE LOCATIONS Letter to the Editor: Einstein has been quoted as saying “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. In the Town of Windsor, Connecticut Dollar Tree is again trying to locate a million square foot warehouse adjacent to a residential area. The Town of Windsor has a website that has videos of their board meetings and if someone would care to view them they would see neighbors there trying to stop Dollar Tree from locating 150 feet from their houses. If they were not indentified, they well could be from Birchwood area not the Winterwood area. It would seem that in all the areas on the eastern seaboard there would be a location similar to the Port Of Albany that would not heavily impact residential areas. Dollar Tree has been quoted saying that the Town of Windsor is their choice even though New York State offered them ten million dollars more. Time will tell what the outcome will be, I just hope Dollar Tree will learn from this experience and be the good citizen of communities they profess to be. ~ Robert Wiltsie, Castleton 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.

LOCAL RESIDENTS INTERN THROUGH SUNY OSWEGO Several local residents are taking part in an internship this spring through SUNY Oswego’s Experience-Based Education Program. They are (with their internship in parentheses): Amanda L. Agneta of Troy, a senior psychology major (Riley Elementary School, Oswego); Matthew T. DeLong of Troy, a senior psychology major (Leighton Elementary School, Oswego); Kelly L. Richards of Nassau, a senior human resource management major (Admissions Office, on the SUNY Oswego campus) The Experience-Based Education Program at Oswego places students in internships and career awareness opportunities that allow them to earn college credits while garnering valuable real-life experience. Last year, more than a thousand Oswego students took part in experiential learning while working at hundreds of businesses, nonprofit agencies and government offices, not counting the hundreds of student teachers working in area schools.

SCHODACK DEMOCRATS SCHOLARSHIP Letter to the Editor: The Schodack Democrats have invited everyone to visit their website. You know I already have. Among other things I saw there was an application for a chance at a $250 college scholarship. Like Liberals in public office who dole out alms specifically for their constituents, there are some strict requirements as to who can apply. I’m compelled to point these out - because I’m a hate monger. Applicants must not only attend Columbia or Maple Hill High School, but also must attend the Participation In Government class and be Schodack residents. So you could have friends who sit next to each other in school who would like a shot at the money, but the kid who lives in East Greenbush isn’t eligible. Not only that but they have to be a graduating senior “in good standing” whatever that means. And they must have “shown potential in understanding American democracy”. That doesn’t sound too subjective does it? They’ll also need letters of recommendation from a social studies teacher and from a defined selection of adults who have “knowledge of the student’s work ethic, volunteerism or community involvement”. That ought to narrow the field down to maybe one student. That lucky qualifier must then write a 500-750 word essay on one of three narrow topics. Those topics are extremely subjective in and of themselves, like: “What does the phrase ‘All politics are local’ mean to you?” or “What does it mean to be a good citizen in a democracy?” What good is answering the latter for a student who lives in a republic? And that quote from Tip O’Neill was: “All politics IS local”. And shouldn’t there be a colon before the quote? Maybe it’s not a quote because the writer put apostrophes around the phrase instead of quotation marks. I’m just saying that it might be better to set an example of good scholarship when setting yourself up as a judge of others’. There’s a lot of missing punctuation on that webpage too. Be sure to print it out before they change it and call you a liar. ~ David Crawmer, 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.

athlete of the week CARA DANISH

Sports Photo of by Andy the Week Flanagan

~Scholar Athlete~ by Megan Keeler

by Claire Everett This week I will be writing about all athletes, from modified to varsity. To start, the girl’s Varsity Lacrosse team had their first game on Thursday, March 29th. The Lady Warriors played Guilderland, and unfortunately, fell short 19-2. Amazing goals by Sarah Laranjo and Darian Goyer; and great game in goal to Jackie St. Pierre who had 8 saves. Baseball also started off their season this week. The boys played Troy High for their first game on Friday. AP was unable come away with a victory, the end score was 13-3. Good luck next game boys! Now, I must tell you about the biggest athletics event that has happened this year. It was not a game or a competition of any kind, but a budget meeting. This public forum took place last Tuesday, March 27th. At the meeting our superintendent stated that athletics will be cut. That is, unless the School Board adopts a budget that includes sports and the community supports that budget. Can you imagine Averill Park without athletics? I know I can’t. Athletics act as an outlet for many kids; these programs allow students who might not otherwise be noticed to stand out. They shape every athlete’s life by teaching us leadership, time management, teamwork, determination, hardwork, performing under pressure, putting competition in perspective, or gaining confidence. Averill Park sports programs are life altering. This is why we need to stand up against cutting sports from the school budget. So I urge you to encourage that the School Board adopt a budget that includes Averill Park athletics, and then to support that budget with your vote. Now is the most important time to come and support our Warriors! To keep updated with the recent budget proposals or to state your own opinion to the Board you can attend the weekly board meetings at Averill Park High School on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm. You can also research the topic on the school website. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at

Danish is an athlete to watch; she is always hustling, trying her hardest, and cheering on her team. Dedication to her school work and athletic career are what Cara Danish is all about. Cara is a senior at Averill Park High School and is all amped up for her final softball season here at APHS. She has been playing for 10 years and got started when her dad convinced her to give it a try because she loved playing catch with him in the yard so much. In Cara’s off season, she plays for the U18 Long Island Riptide team. She has been on the varsity team for 4 years and has also played soccer since she was 5 years old. Cara is a curious and intelligent student with a 90 GPA and all of the wonderful report cards to show it. To find Cara on the softball field, you may need to bring your binoculars, because she will be all the way out in the outfield. Cara plays softball year round and goes to the batting cages twice a week in her off season. Danish loves everything about softball. She loves getting dirty, playing with her team, and winning. She loves the adrenaline rush that you get in big games and just loves playing in games themselves; they are the highlight of her day. In her spare time, Cara coaches a U8 Classie Lassie Youth Softball team and hangs out with her friends. Next year, Danish is looking to study in the field of social work and continue her softball career at whichever school she chooses. Although she has been accepted to Siena College, she still isn’t quite sure where she is going to end up. “The person that inspires me is my mom because she is a strong woman and motivates me to always work hard at everything I do,” answered Danish. She would like to thank her friends and parents for supporting her athletic career, her coaches for helping her become the athlete that she is now, and her teammates for creating some of her best memories. “A scholar athlete means you are dedicated on and off the field and always practicing even in the off season,” replied Cara. Best of Luck to Cara and the rest of the Varsity team as their 2012 season, Cara’s final season with the Warriors, begins.

WHERE IS JESUS? Following their commemoration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will journey through Holy Week with Maundy Thursday service of Communion, Ceremonial Washing, and Stripping of the Sanctuary at Nassau Reformed, 7 p.m.; and, Easter Sunrise Service, including Kindling of the New Fire, renewal of Baptismal Vows, and Sonrise in the meadows at corner of Sharptown and Allendale Roads in Stuyvesant, 6:30 a.m., where the sunrise on a clear day fully exclaims the beauty of God’s Creation. The Easter Sunday sermon, at both churches, is titled “Where Is Jesus.” It is based on the Gospel of John 20:1-9, where Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb to anoint her Lord with spices; and finds that Jesus is Risen! The Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will speak to what it means that we are so busy with our lives, our families, our money, our work, and our future that we don’t see Jesus where he is. The Nassau (11 a.m.) and Stuyvesant Reformed Church (9:30 a.m.) will hold their worship at usual times. Both sanctuaries will radiate the glory of the resurrection as they will be filled with fragrance of Easter plants, placed in memory of all the Saints gone before us; and the sounds of “Lift High the Cross” and “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today,” all telling the story of the Christ who is truly risen. Parents are encouraged to bring their young folk to worship with them. Sunday School will resume on April 15. The Nassau Reformed is located at 43 Church St., one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. The Stuyvesant Reformed is located at corner of Church St. and Rte 9J, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant.

He gets along well with people and other cats and loves to play & be petted. He promises to keep you entertained with his antics and catnip toys and would love for a chance in a good home! Please consider adopting this gentle kitty! As with all Purrfect Companion kitties, Lynx is up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and neutered or spayed. For more information on Lynx, please contact one of the following Purrfect Companions’ representatives: Maryann at 331-2221 or at Purrfect Companions is a non-profit, all volunteer rescue organization.

Robert Bornhorst of East Nassau is the 2012 Art Goedeke Scholarship winner. Robert is a 2011 graduate of Averill Park High School and attends Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he is majoring in bioinformatics and molecular biology. The late Art Goedeke was a long time Credit Union member with a passion for computer science and information technology. In 2006, his family set up an annual memorial scholarship of $2,000 to help a student with similar career aspirations. The award is given to a CAP COM member who is graduating high school senior or student under the age of 25 currently attending college and pursuing an undergraduate degree in computer science or information technology. In his scholarship application essay about the role social media could play in his future profession, Robert predicts that research scientists will use social media platforms to “facilitate communication within an intellectual community much faster than published journals alone ever could.”

The evening will feature a wine pull and entertainment will be provided by April Marie and Neil Brown. This event requires reservations at $35.00 per person.
