Pre K children with their bags Mrs. Brady’s Pre K children were one of the classes to decorate paper bags for the parish homebound gift committee to fill and deliver to those parishioners who find it difficult to come out to church. The children used paint, cotton, construction paper and glitter to decorate their bags, thus bringing joy to others.

VEHICLE SPEED INDICATORS NEEDED IN VILLAGE OF NASSAU Letter to the Editor: At the monthly meeting of the Village of Nassau Board of Trustees, on December 11, 2013, a suggestion was made to petition the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), for approval of installation for two solar powered vehicle speed indicators, to be permanently installed over the existing 35 mph signs at each end of the village on Route 20. It was also suggested that the speed indicators be supplied by NYSDOT at no cost to the village. The speed indicators are justified by two conditions that now exist in the village. Several years ago a traffic survey was conducted by NYSDOT which showed that up to 4000 vehicles a day pass through the village. The village police department has also reduced the hours patrolled. These two facts necessitate the need for speed indicators. The Village Board should pass a resolution, and request in a letter, NYSDOT approval. This should be done on or before the next Board Meeting on January 8th, 2014. ~ Bill Ayer, Nassau 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.

Members of the Rensselaer County Legislature have joined with local officials to ask state and federal officials to reconsider a decision to forgo a health study of residents living in the area around a notorious toxic waste site in Nassau. Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid and Legislators Alex Shannon and Judith Breselor joined with Nassau Supervisor David Fleming to appeal for reconsideration of the health study in a letter to U.S. Senators Schumer and Gillibrand and Governor Cuomo. “We strongly disagree with the decision by the state and federal governments not to conduct a health study in the area. A health study is needed to protect the health of residents and the environment in the area,” said Reid. “Residents have lived with this environmental injustice for 50 years. A health study is warranted and would address many uncertainties residents have regarding the contamination in the area,” said Shannon, chairman of the Legislature’s Environmental Committee. On November 1, the state Health Department and the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry opted against the health study. That decision was criticized by local and county officials and residents, along with the director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany. Those supporting the health study note the federal government recently declared the Loeffel site a Superfund site, with Superfund designation usually occurring after a site has been identified as a danger to human health. “For years our community dealt with a horrific scar of contamination that has had significant health, economic and environmental impacts. Nassau’s community impact stories and demand for federal review of the Loeffel site show there is a real concern. EPA’s own discussions with town officials have demonstrated many unknown answers about the extent and impact of this contamination,” said Nassau Supervisor David Fleming. “This health study would answer many of the questions and worries residents have about contamination. It would also provide a measure of fairness for those who have lived in a toxic shadow for more than a half century,” said Breselor, a member of the Legislature’s Environmental Committee.

East Greenbush Historical Society upcoming talk on Jan. 5, 2014 will be at 2:00PM at the East Greenbush Library. Steve Trimm, who is a tour guide and educator at the Grant Cottage, will portray Ulysses S. Grant as he was in early 1885.Grant knew that in order to finish his memoirs [which Mark Twain had agreed to publish] he had to will himself to stay alive...He was penniless at the time after a Wall Street scam and was dying of cancer. Grant wanted to provide for his family’s future and the book proved to be a best seller. The memoir was completed just three days before he died in Saratoga County. Steve Trimm will share with us the life lessons learned by Grant in his program. The public is of course invited and refreshments will be served. The 2014 North Greenbush Historical calendar will be available for sale at the meeting for $10 also. Hope to see you on Jan. 5 at 2:00PM.

Letter to the Editor: Recently our County Executive Kathleen Jimino won re-election unopposed. Following this she requested a pay raise. In these times of high unemployment, austere budgets, and give-backs, perhaps she thought she could fly under the radar and she deserves more. One of the basic tenets of representatives in government is responsiveness. Being responsive to one’s constituents is an example of this. We have found Katherine Jimino to be unresponsive to our inquiries. Near a dozen have been made. Furthermore our county legislatures, when urged to “budge” her, seem to be under her thumb also being unresponsive. Call us naive, but should there be a check and balance to executive control in government? Is local government exempt from this ideology? Should our leaders shirk their duty to the public by simply saying it is an “inside matter”? Are they above being wrong? This article is not simply to raise awareness of unethical conduct, but a call to action. Please contact your representatives Kathleen Jimino, Leon Fiacco, and Philip Danaher and see if you are fortunate enough to get a response. If one comes, perhaps building for the future and a new way can begin. Representatives should always be available to hear our concerns. ~ Steven Constable, resident of Averill Park

It dawned on me the other night When I was working late That in spite of feeling overworked There’s much to celebrate. As we look toward a new year It’s a good time to reflect On what occurred this past year And what deserves respect. I married off one daughter And the other one’s engaged. I’m not sure where the time went. I didn’t think we’d aged. Betsy fell and hurt her shoulder, A torn rotator cuff. After surgery and therapy She’s now back doing stuff. My parents are getting older. I’m so glad they’re both alive. Compared to many their age Mine are healthy and both drive. At my office things are busy. I have a winning team. The daily hustle bustle Leaves little time to dream. We all have the same problem. It’s how to manage time. It shouldn’t be that hard, But it’s an uphill climb. We work hard to make more money. But then we have no time Or we can cut our hours. Then we’re counting every dime. In starting off this new year I resolve to plan a change To improve my inefficiency Now that will sure feel strange. May you have a Happy New Year With prosperity and wealth Or at least enjoy the trip, With the blessing of good health.

2013 NATIONAL ART PORTFOLIO DAY DIALOGUE NEEDED REGARDING ECONOMIC DEVELOP. IN SCHODACK Letter to the Editor: I was very pleased that Diane Knight took the time to respond to the issue I raised regarding economic development in Schodack. It is very important that this community engage in dialogue about projects before they are actually proposed. Projects are often associated with the natural transportation hubs in our Town and they are only discussed when our residents vehemently argue against the projects. People feel threatened and the heat of these arguments works against rational discussion. This has given Schodack a business “unfriendly” reputation. We are all better served by talking about development options before they arise. Total agreement will never be achieved, but awareness and dialogue is better than angry debate. Schodack’s three interchanges on I-90 naturally attract businesses which rely upon transportation. Within 75 miles of Exit 12, every major interstate highway that connects the entire Northeast United States is accessible. Whether it’s a distribution center, a truck terminal, or a major destination attraction, the advantages of Exit 12 are undeniable. People desire retail business in Schodack. Regrettably, the Town’s population in this area is insufficient to support regular retail businesses. Without major housing development, to which many people also object, grocery stores and other retail businesses will not locate here. Our major economic asset is derived from access to interstate highways. Schodack needs to discuss the reality of the types of commercial enterprises we will likely see. Unless we accept this reality and embrace development, we can predict a stagnant tax base and that our local governments will either cut services or be forced to raise property taxes. This choice is ours. We must talk with our neighbors and friends about this situation before we become angry and upset. Also, please remember that the State Environmental Quality Review process (SEQR) will assess and vet impact issues before any project is approved. So let’s all talk. Diane, thank you for beginning the conversation. ~ Paul S. Puccio, Castleton

By Emily Halpin, Class of 2014

All Seniors who attended the event Thursday, November 14th, 2013, marked the annual Sage Portfolio Day at Sage College in Albany NY. Averill Park High School’s most dedicated art students eagerly await this showcase for multiple reasons. Art department representatives from many of the best art schools in the country venture to this event with intentions of finding strong candidates for their highly regarded programs. The professionals evaluating work provide the young Emily Halpin artists with great criticism and advice. Senior arts co-editor Some students are approached with scholarship opportunities and even acceptance offers. At this year’s Portfolio Day, twenty-one of Averill Park’s aspiring artists chose to have their portfolios reviewed. These portfolios contain a sampling of each student’s best work and allow the reviewers to easily get a feel for the individual’s style and personality. While some lugged heavy canvases and large scale drawings, others carried snapshots of their best sculptures and ceramic pieces or photo series’. The girls from Averill Park were not the only ones being reviewed. It was amazing to see the various techniques and creative thoughts of students from other school districts. New ideas inspired new approaches and project ideas. The amount of time and dedication involved in the creation of each individual piece of artwork is unbelievable. Years of hard work and self exposure were placed in front of professional judges. This can be a scary process, but almost always ends in a large confidence boost. Artists from Hartwick College, Syracuse University, The College of St. Rose, SUNY Schools, and various others provided these reviews. As previously mentioned, all of our students were well received by these high-end institutions. Among them, Junior, Sarah Malenfant,

received positive feedback on her delicate and highly realistic graphite drawings from the College of Saint Rose, and even discussed acceptance with them. Senior, Hannah Akots, presented her photography and also talked about acceptance with a terrific school: The New Hampshire Institute of Art. While these students received well-deserved offers regarding higher education, many others were presented with exceptional advice to improve the content of their portfolios. An artist from SUNY Purchase gave Senior, Belle Morizio, useful feedback. He complimented her composition and gave her some things to work on, as well as career ideas. Regardless of what advice and critiques were given to our students, each one left Portfolio Day feeling confident and eager to get back into making their artwork. The art program in the Averill Park School District is exceptional. The artists imparting knowledge on our students are professional and extremely effective in their teaching. They assure every student is well-prepared for the college experience. The amazing feedback received at Sage Portfolio Day reinforces the success of our program and inspires us to keep on making art.

Letter to the Editor: The next time you are out for a drive take some notice of the utility lines and poles that run along the highway and notice the poles and wires that cross the road and run along private property. They look pretty much the same, but they are assessed differently. The utilities that are on the public right of way are valued by the New York State Office of Real Property Services and are known as Special Franchise. The utility lines on the private property are valued by your local assessor. A recent Appellate Court decision removed the assessment of fiber optic cable from the section of the assessment roll managed by your local assessor but left the assessment on the Special Franchise section. The Rensselaer County Assessors’ Association which is comprised of your local Assessors, cannot fathom the logic in removing the value on the property located on the private land and keeping the value on the public roads. We argue that the value should be left on both the public and the private land as it has been since the early 1980’s when fiber optic technology was first used as a medium to transmit voice and data communications. We wish to bring this matter to the attention of our residents because when a property becomes exempt from taxation, in this case because the value was removed by the Court’s decision, the tax burden falls on everyone else. Throughout our County this loss of value is estimated in the millions. As your Assessors we have a responsibility to maintain fair and equitable Assessment Rolls and this decision goes against our understanding of fair and equitable. ~ Sincerely, Judith Goodyer President, Rensselaer County Assessors’ Association

As legislative representatives of District 2, including the towns of East Greenbush, North Greenbush and Poestenkill, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the December 10, 2013 legislative meeting and other meetings during the month. Along with the December 17 meeting, legislators also met on December 2 to adopt the 2014 county budget. The budget is the third consecutive budget to stay under the statewide property tax cap. We are particularly proud Rensselaer County has been under the state tax cap each year the tax cap has been in place. The 2014 budget maintains needed county services, and protects the financial stability that has earned the county positive bond ratings and independent audits. The Legislature contributed by reducing the legislative budget, as has been done the past several years, and working with the County Executive to increase savings in other areas. That effort helped lower the proposed tax increase to below one percent. While the 2014 budget is a solid document, the need for reform of state and federal mandates remains. At the December 10 legislative meeting, legislators approved shared services agreements with several municipalities for ice and snow removal. These shared services agreements have reduced costs for taxpayers and maintained services to help keep roads safe during winter. At a December 17 special meeting, we approved a resolution allowing a private company access to the Fort Orange Paper Company site to aid efforts to revitalize the property. The clean-up work undertaken by the private company continues clean-up work started by the EPA at the request of the Legislature. Fort Orange was a major source of employment for generations, and we are excited about the possibility of restoring the site to active use. The December 17 meeting was completion of the term of office for Michael Cristo, who decided not to seek re-election. Mike addressed the legislative body and wished lawmakers well during the coming term. Mike will be succeeded by Rob Bayly, a Poestenkill resident who was elected last month. Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy, safe and prosperous 2014. The next regular monthly meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, January 14, 2014. Residents are welcome to contact us 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

SALVATION ARMY DONATIONS EXCEED GOAL in MEMORY OF C. BASCOM Letter to the Editor: The generosity of so many people made it possible to exceed the goal of $2700. that was set as family, friends, and CHS students rang the Salvation Army bells in memory of Christopher Bascom on what would have been his 27th birthday. (The students bravely manned the kettles on the coldest day of the year so far!) In addition to the donations made during the two days of bell-ringing, contributions were made through Facebook, checks sent directly to the Salvation Army in Chris’ memory, and by members of the Church of the Covenant, UM. The total raised from all of these sources was $3430.50, with a bit more still anticipated. Not only is this very meaningful for Christopher’s family, but it is also a lifeline for the Salvation Army and the people the organization serves! Chris’ family and the Troy Corps of the Salvation Army thank all the people who made this possible, either by manning the kettles and/or through their monetary contributions. Thanks, too, to the special person who set up the Facebook pages! Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it took a multitude to raise much– needed money for this cause. For those who don’t remember Chris or know his story, he was 16 and a junior at Columbia High School when he was killed by a hit and run driver 10 years ago. Because he was such a caring and giving individual throughout his short life, it seems appropriate to remember him in a way that helps others. In addition to the local efforts on his behalf, Chris’ uncle, Kyle Newport, and family and friends in Charleston, SC, also rang the bells in his memory. Between the two sites, approximately $5,000 was raised this Christmas season for the Salvation Army in Christopher’s memory. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in any way. ~ With great appreciation, Jan Newport, Chris’ maternal grandmother

As legislative representatives of District 4, including the towns of Schodack, Nassau and Sand Lake, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the December 10, 2013 legislative meeting and other meetings during the month. At a special meeting December 2, legislators adopted the 2014 county budget. The budget is the third consecutive budget to be under the state tax cap, meaning the county is one of a select group that have complied with the tax cap each year the tax cap has been in place. The budget also maintains important county services and maintains the solid financial position and bond ratings the county has earned in recent years. Members of the legislative majority supported the budget after working with the County Executive to lower the amount of the property tax increase to under one percent, and to increase savings in county government. The budget is also the latest to include a reduction in spending in the Legislature. At the December 10 legislative meeting, legislators approved shared services agreements with several county municipalities for ice and snow removal that have reduced costs for taxpayers. At a December 17 meeting, the county continued to make progress in revitalizing the Fort Orange Paper Company property in Castleton. Legislators approved a resolution allowing a private company access to the site to continue clean-up of the property. The private company has a strong interest in the site, and the clean-up work will continue clean-up work stated by the federal government at the request of the County Legislature. Fort Orange was a major source of employment for generations, and we look forward to continue efforts to restore this property to active use. We joined Congressman Chris Gibson and local elected officials on December 17 to ask the state and federal governments to conduct a health study of the area around the Loeffel toxic waste site and to urge for safer handling of water from the site. We remain committed to a comprehensive clean-up of the site. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone, and best wishes for a safe and prosperous New Year. The next meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature is Tuesday, January 14, 2014. Residents are welcome to contact us 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

As we welcome in 2014, and come to terms with winter break ending, Averill Park athletes haven’t ceased practicing and competing. Several games, matches, and tournaments took place over the first week of break. The Lady Warriors basketball team remains undefeated as they enter the new year. On Monday, 12/23, the ladies traveled to Saratoga to play a postponed game. The ladies emerged victorious, winning 58-44. Senior Kelly Donnelly led the team, scoring 19 points.

Basketball season is here and Kelly Donnelly is a significant factor to the Averill Park girl’s varsity basketball team. Kelly started playing basketball in sixth grade, and although she hasn’t been playing as long as most girls on the varsity level, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference! Kelly plays both forward and guard positions, constantly working to improve her abilities at each position. On the off season, Kelly works on basketball mechanics, such as ball handling. She also goes to the YMCA and runs sometimes too. It means a lot to Kelly to be recognized as a scholar athlete and owes credit to her brother, Joe, for inspiring her through his hard work ethics. “I like to look up to him,” Kelly says. Along with basketball, Kelly also plays for the Averill Park soccer and softball teams. For Kelly’s senior year she is taking Calculus, AP (Advanced Placement) Biology, Government and Economics, and English, with a 94 GPA. After High School, Kelly is going to Skidmore College to play basketball and major in exercise science. A few of Kelly’s achievements over the past few years in high school were being named 1st state All-star and 4th team All-state for soccer her senior year, and she was named athlete of the week twice last year. Congratulations on a successful high school career, Kelly, and best of luck to you at Skidmore! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

PASSING CONNECTION You did not see the trees. That view across the lake. Reflecting vivid red shapes Leaves draping limbs Reaching trunk to branch tips Fullness of color Signaling change. Would you could have sat near shore. Me beside you. Watching, waiting, anticipating. That which we had seen before. Dropping. Falling. Then came the time for snow. Sunbright glistening covers ground Ice covered the lake around. A lingering look taken. Remembering wintry walks and travels. Care underfoot, watchful on the road. Day falls, overhead the moon moving Signals eventual turning of season Special season “Heaven and nature sing” season. Welcome newness in stars Your nearness celebrated in thought. By Nancy W.
