COMPUTER FARE We Are Your Laptop Repair Specialists

New & Refurbished Laptops in Stock &RPSXWHU)DUH


GREENBUSH COMPUTER FARE 2013 As we commence this 15th year of computer sales and service, let’s take a minute to recognize how computers have changed in recent years. Microsoft introduced the new, radically different WINDOWS 8 just before Christmas. It’s hard to imagine an operating system being disliked more than Vista, but from initial reports, this seems to be the case with WINDOWS 8. Fortunately, for our customers, we are still selling brand new as well as refurbished computers with the much loved WINDOWS 7 & WINDOWS XP. We have sold and will continue to sell, new Dell, ASUS, Lenovo and Toshiba brands of laptop and Custom-built desktop computers with operating systems of our customers’ choice. A few years ago, when Vista was the only OS available everywhere else, the Computer Fare stores maintained popularity by continuing to offer Windows XP. As then, we will stock WINDOWS 8 systems like everyone else, but still believe that diversity is the key to success and will strive to fulfill our customers desire to choose their preferred version of Windows. We anticipate continuing to offer a limited number of iPads as we had in 2012. We also have technicians with experience in the repair of Apple computers and have surprised a number of Mac users with our ability to resurrect what they had previously thought was not repairable. And with diversity in mind, you should know that in addition to our retail locations at 1590 Columbia Turnpike in Schodack and 3770 Carman Rd in Guilderland and website:, we have a presence on eBay, Facebook and Craigslist where you will find many of our specialty items and wholesale parts listed for sale. Our primary eBay user name is “greenbushparts”. Look for “Computer Fare” on Facebook and to find what we have on Craigslist; put our phone number, 479-0948, in their search bar. Our current offerings on eBay include laptop parts like LCD screens, and on Craigslist, we have a computer desk at $29 and some 11" Xerox printer paper. Of course, the mainstay of our business is in service and repair. With over 36,000 customers served since 1998, from removal of the latest “FBI” virus to the highly specialized repair of laptop motherboards and LCDs, we’ve got it covered at Greenbush Computer Fare.

Additionally, all dogs housed in the Town of Nassau must be registered annually. This is a New York State mandated registration which serves several purposes. Among which are the ability to identify and return found dogs to their owners faster, as well as to help monitor the rabies vaccinations of all dogs. This is a serious health concern that we can do something about. Please contact the Clerk’s office at 766-2343, ext.1 for more information or just stop in.

Greenbush; you will be glad you did. 4779693 egumc/ As the new year starts, it’s time to look back on things that happened last year in 2012. For the Averill Park Drama Club, known as the OffBroadway Players it was the year for them to learn to make it on their own. As the school year started in 2012, the OffBroadway Players made the decision to become self funded due to no money available in the By: Hannah Leffler district budget for the club. The district is paying for two shows for the Drama Club to do, and they are very thankful for at least that. But, along with the Off-Broadway Players facing slight misfortune, this year, they were able to maintain helping the community along with themselves and will continue to do so throughout the new year. As seen in the picture above, some of the members of the Off Broadway Players went to the Eddy Alzheimer’s Center at Hawthorne Ridge to carol all throughout the center for the residents to enjoy during the holiday season. Also, the club put on in the fall, Little Women, and is soon going to put on Winter One Acts, which are student written and directed one- act plays! And a big part of the proceeds from Winter OneActs will be donateD to a local Charity from the Drama Club to remind people to keep giving even after the holiday season passes. Winter One Acts will be performed on February 8th and 9th at 7 pm. The third play to come this year from the Off-Broadway Players is the spring show and will be Musical Comedy Murders of 1940. The Off-Broadway Players wishes everyone a Happy New Year and hopes you will come out to enjoy theatre excitement as the year begins!

SL SUPERVISOR FASOLDT REPORTS ON ACCOMPLISHMENTS & 2013 GOALS Dear Sand Lake Residents, Councilpersons Kronau, Cioffi and I would like to share some of 2012’s accomplishments and our goals for the coming year. Keeping residents informed has been a top priority. We are proud supporters of the Town’s live broadcast of Board Meetings on Channel 17 and we’ve been doing our best to improve the Town’s webpage and use of social media. In compliance with the NYS Open Meetings Law, we post all resolutions and supporting documents on before public meetings. Hopefully, we will soon be able to webcast meetings. The Town has three very active Committees – Planning Oversight, Mining Liaison and Open Space-Environmental-Recreation. The exceptionally dedicated volunteers of these committees are working to advance the goals of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. In 2013, our goal is to provide important economic development initiatives and adopt a new, modernized zoning code to move our Town forward. Together we can achieve our community’s collective vision while bringing balance to issues of concern. We are pleased to be able to provide our town residents with the new service of a community van for our senior citizens and individuals with disabilities. It has proven to be a valuable service and greatly appreciated by those in need. The Town now also provides free disposal and recycling of electronics and paint. We were able to secure grant funding for energy efficiency upgrades of Town Hall fixtures and appliances, providing considerable cost savings. We have applied for grants related to recreation and court improvements and we will continue to aggressively pursue any available grant funding. Progress continues on an equipment replacement program for our Public Works Department. We must ensure that we have serviceable machinery at the lowest long-term cost. Town policies have been updated and revised to reflect current best practices. The Town’s legal counsel has worked toward resolving pending lawsuits. In 2013, the Town’s celebrated Veteran’s Memorial Park deserves our help and support as it moves toward completion. We wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year! The Town’s 2012 Bicentennial year was very exciting and highlighted the spirit of community. We’d like to thank the many volunteers who spend time taking on a number of special roles and projects aimed at enhancing and promoting our community. Supporting our local organizations and businesses will continue to be a top priority. We’d like to extend our appreciation to everyone who’s helping to make Sand Lake a great place to live! Best Wishes for 2013! ~ Flora Fasoldt, Sand Lake Supervisor

“WHERE HEAVEN AND EARTH COME TOGETHER” On Sunday, January 13, 2013, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will worship with focus on Luke 3:15-17, 21-22, the story of Jesus’ baptism by John in the River Jordan. It is in these verses that we witness the heavens opening up and a voice identifying Jesus’ unique identity. In the sermon titled, “Where Heaven and Earth Come Together,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will point to how the great distance between the earthly and the spiritual, between the human and the divine, between God and us is insignificant as the voice from heaven clearly indicates there is traffic between heaven and earth; and that where heaven and earth meet; that is where we find Jesus calling us. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-School-Building, 43 Church St., (Rte 20,) approximately one half mile East of the only traffic light in the village. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church, begins worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the intersection of Church St. and Route 9J, one half mile South of the caution light where Rte. 26A meets 9 in the hamlet of Stuyvesant.

Regional winners will then compete for the state title. The final winner’s artwork will be replicated as the official 2013 New York State Arbor Day bookmark distributed statewide.

As legislative representatives of District 4, including the towns of Schodack, Nassau and Sand Lake, we are happy to provide residents with an update on actions taken at the December 11, 2012 legislative meeting. During these challenging economic times, we have made it a priority to protect taxpayers and ensure needed county services are efficiently provided to the residents who rely on those services. We have also made it a priority to comply with the state tax cap, since the cap was enacted two years ago. At a December 3 meeting, legislators supported a 2013 county budget that comes in under the state tax cap. The budget includes a minimal 1.25 percent tax increase that is the lowest in the Capital Region. Legislators worked with the Executive to lower the amount of a proposed tax increase and to also ensure needed services for seniors, veterans and youths are protected. Along with protecting taxpayers and services, the 2013 budget safeguards the county’s strong fiscal position and positive bond rating. At the December 11 meeting, we welcomed Fred Wurtemberger of Sand Lake to thank Fred for his decades of service to the county and his hometown. Fred was a county engineer who helped develop the county sewer district more than 40 years ago. He also served as Sand Lake Supervisor and in other positions during a distinguished career. We were proud to see Deputy Adrian Morin commended by legislators by helping rescue a fellow passenger on an airline flight from North Carolina. Deputy Morin received training in emergency medical response as a member of the Sheriff’s Department. The sewer district Fred Wurtemberger helped develop continues to play a role in supporting economic development. At a year-end meeting December 18, legislators approved repairs to a pump station in Troy operated by the county sewer district. Residents will remember the role played by the sewer district in helping Regeneron create 300 new jobs at its East Greenbush facility after the host community of East Greenbush had capacity issues with the town system. Best wishes on a happy and safe holiday season and a great and prosperous 2013. 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

Letter to the Editor: As a result of a large positive response to the idea of turning the Sand Lake Elementary School into a Community Center, the citizens committee is planning to hold a public meeting to inform the public of all the details and to seek their signatures on a petition to the Town and School Boards asking them to consider the prospect of leasing the building to the Town for $1.00 a year for anywhere from 50 to 99 years. The meeting will be at the Averill Park Firehouse on the evening of Wednesday, January 23rd, at 7:00 PM In the Citizen’s Frame next to this announcement there is a copy of the petition. Please feel free to cut it out and copy it if you need more than one. If you are coming to the meeting, please bring it with you. If you are not coming to the meeting, please follow the instructions as to how you can return it to the committee.

QUESTION: What are some of the other meditation benefits that can help improve our health and happiness? M. Platt, Rensselaer ANSWER: In the previous columns, I explained how Mantra, Budgeting Time, Diaphragmatic Breathing and OnePointed Attention all help enhance our health and wellbeing. The next tool available to us is 5. Detachment. In contrast to its common usage, the word detachment does not mean being callous, aloof, indifferent or uninvolved. Detachment actually means “love in action,” because this meditation benefit enables us to set aside our old limiting mental habits, as well as those annoying habits of others. When we are faced with a choice of what to think, say or do, the tool of detachment helps us train the ego, whose tyranny always tries to convince us that our happiness depends on people and events conforming to our personal likes and dislikes. In practical terms, detachment creates a space between our first habitual reaction and our ultimate response. This space between stimulus and response provides us the freedom to listen and heed the discriminating wisdom of our conscience, so we can choose the most beneficial course of action. St. Francis of Assisi reminds us “it is in giving that we receive.” In order to become the beneficiary of something worthwhile (like health or happiness), we must be willing to give up our attachment to the likes and dislikes of our old habits that generally bring us pain. 6. Discrimination. Our ability to discriminate comes from our conscience. The word

Community Wide Holiday Redeemable Bottle/ Can Drive (for Deposit Only Please) on Saturday, January 12th, from 10AM to 1PM in the Averill Park HS Front Parking Lot. Proceeds/Donation to benefit the Averill Park HS Indoor Track Team and Athletic Booster Club. conscience comes from the Latin, and it means “with wisdom or knowledge.” As our meditation practice deepens, our conscience is increasingly purified and can reliably access unerring wisdom from the super-conscious portion of our mind. When this inner wisdom then enters the conscious portion of our mind, we never need verification of its truthfulness. We automatically know from our own personal experience that what the conscience suggests is always the truth and beneficial. The only question that remains for us is, do we have the will power to base our thoughts, words and deeds on this perfect judgment? The conscience allows us to transcend old, unreliable habits so we can experience health, happiness and security. Using the tool of discrimination prepares us to deal with every challenge life offers. But if we accept the bold promises from the media or from our own senses, habits or ego without consulting our conscience, we rarely get what was promised. The only way to know for certain if a particular thought can lead us to the health and wellbeing we desire is to use the reliable tool of our conscience. My personal experience is that the conscience is never wrong. The meditation curriculum at the American Meditation Institute is accredited by the American Medical Association, Albany Medical College and the N.Y.S. Nurses Association. It is also endorsed by nationally recognized physicians Dr. Oz, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD.

THE REQUIREMENTS OF ASSISTANCE DOGS Assistance Dogs of America evaluates each dog for two to four weeks before placing it in a foster home to begin formal training. Evaluation includes a variety of tests to gauge the dog’s potential as an assistance dog. These evaluations test dogs for food aggression, social interest and sound sensitivity among other things. Once a dog passes those basic evaluations, it is then evaluated more extensively as trainers attempt to learn more about the dog’s temperament and personality. Basic obedience exercises are performed to see how dogs respond in different environments, and dogs that pass each stage of the evaluation process are then examined by a veterinarian to determine if they are physically able to handle the considerable tasks required of assistance dogs. If the dog is given a clean bill of health, it is then placed in a foster home to begin in its training. The training period for a potential assistance dog takes a minimum of six months and can last as long as 22 months.

COMMON FAUX “PAWS” THAT HAMPER PET NUTRITION by Dana Watkins (NAPS)— As a nutritionist, I receive thousands of e-mails and phone calls each year from concerned “pet parents” looking for the right food for their pets. While it is very easy to blame the food for problems, in many cases, it is simply no more than the wrong choice and wrong application of a food that is really the cause. Battle of the Bulge: Many owners think getting a pet to lose weight is as easy as feeding less. Unfortunately, reducing the serving size often leaves pets hungry and their body undersupported. Pet owners should look toward complete dry diets that offer Weight Management or Reduced Activity diets to help deliver proper nutrition while losing weight. For example, Fromm recently introduced a Weight Management Gold recipe that provides high-quality protein, complex carbohydrates to aid in appetite control, and added L-carnitine to help the body burn more fat and maintain lean muscle mass. Any diet should be accompanied with plenty of fresh water and Frankie - 2 years old, feist/Chihuahua mix. Lovable, exercise. Another common loves everyone and gets along well with all dogs. He sleeps mistake many pet owners make on my bed at night and is a snuggler. Frankie is neutered, is feeding a pet a weight current with vaccines, heartworm negative and has been wormed. He is a happy little guy weighing only approx. 18 management food and lbs and is full grown. Frankie's previous life was not the overindulging with treats and best. According to our vet he was either hit by a car, thrown table scraps. These need to be out of a car or beaten by someone with a blunt object (boot). Unfortunately, the injuries he sustained were a left femur eliminated to let the food do its and pelvic fracture. His leg was never set after these job. To learn more, visit injuries. He was not vetted, which causes him to have a frommfam Dana Watkins slight limp. His limp does not bother him and he will have a is the Director of Nutrition and normal and happy life which could include doggie walks and playing.

by Claire Everett On the week back from break, the boys and girls of AP athletics worked to bring in the new year right. The Averill Park girls basketball team took on Burnt Hills on Friday. The ladies came out swinging and took home a huge win, 69-27. AP’s lead scorers were Kelly Donnelly with 19, Monica Dushensky with 9, and Allison Hacker and Alison Nunziato each with 8. After this game, the girl’s have a winning record of 5-3. The boy’s team came out hard again, but fell short. The Warriors took on Burnt Hills and lost 66-54. Contributors to the team’s points were Dan VanRoy with 16 points, Lucas Ziegler with 13, and Matt LaBounty with 8 points. AP boys will take on Guilderland home on Friday. The wrestling team had a meet with Guilderland this week. The boys again took home the victory, 45-31. AP had wins from Allan McNeil, Keith Davidson, Cody Meissner, Gary Goodermote, Derrick Gardner, Tyler Moses, Jimmy Pasquariello, Timmy Moses, and Dakota Weir. Great job boys! AP winter athletics are about halfway through their regular season, so the games will become more competitive. Teams are in rhythm and players are bringing their best performances to the floor. Come out and support Averill Park as your Warriors venture closer to the post-season. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at

2013 BASEBALL REGISTRATION Sorensco’s 2013 baseball registration is now open! We are looking forward to another great season coming off a fantastic campaign last spring and summer across all three “seasons” of baseball that we offer (Recreational, Travel and All-Star). For those who played with us last year, we hope to see you again and to help ensure that is the case, above and beyond the quality of baseball you experienced, we have kept our fees exactly the same as they were last year. For those who have not played with us before, we hope you consider our great facility and program. As mentioned previously, we will implement in 2013 the ability for players deemed sufficiently skilled to “play up” with a higher age group if they choose. This change will allow players to be placed at their skill level instead of their age only and will apply to each of our three seasons and across all age groups. In addition, players age 15 and under who try out and make our Connie Mack (18u) or Mickey Mantle (16u) teams will not be required to be placed on a Recreational team roster. We expect these rule changes will provide a tremendous amount of flexibility for players who qualify. The 2013 Registration Form can be found on our website at Sorensco is community-based baseball league for players 1318 years of age that offers an exceptional baseball experience for players and their families. Levels of play/seasons include Recreational, Travel and All-Star. Please email any questions to us at

The Winter sports here at Averill Park High School are really starting to heat up. The first Athlete of the Week of the new year is a scholar athlete with a GPA of 94 and a current member of the National Honor Society. Mike Hayes, a two sport athlete, shares a love for both football and track. When he first began running track as a sophomore, Mike thought that it would just be a fun way to stay in shape and hang out with friends. Little did he know, he would soon fall in love with the sport. He started out running mid-distance races such as the 800 meter. As time went on, however, Hayes felt the need for speed and began running sprinter races such as the 200 and 400 meter. Above everything though, his best and favorite event is the triple jump. Last year, at sectionals, Mike took fifth place in the triple jump. Hayes claims to get really nervous just before a race or event, but in the actual moment, he feels unstoppable. His favorite part about track is how your hard work directly shows in everything that you do. Mike is an extremely hard worker who does everything he can to balance his school work with his sports. “Being a scholar athlete to me means giving your best in everything you do,” says the athlete. In preparation for the upcoming season, Mike plays football; and also works out and runs as much as he can over the summer. That’s not all, however. Mike is also an outstanding student who challenges himself every day. This year he is taking Physics, Advanced Placement Government and Politics, Advanced Placement Macro Economics, Calculus, Spanish and Detective Fiction. Hayes is unsure of exactly where he would like to attend college, but at the moment his top choice is Northeastern University. He would like to major in computer science and also continue with triple jump. Mike has learned a lot from his parents who have done their best to help him lead a good life. “They’re always there for me and show me how to act and be a good person; not by telling me specifically, but just by leading by example, and I really respect that,” says Hayes. He would like to thank all of the coaches he’s had over the years for pushing him and his teammates to do their absolute best every day. We wish Mike and the rest of the Averill Park Indoor Track members the best of luck in the remainder of their season.

“BOWL OVER POLIO” FUNDRAISER The Southern Rensselaer County (SRC) Rotary Club is among many grassroots groups that continually raise money for PolioPlus, the Rotary International program that works closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to battle polio on a global basis. In addition to contributing other funds to RI’s ongoing effort, the Southern Rensselaer County club’s annual “Bowl Over Polio” event, a public fun day for all members of the community, is aimed specifically at supporting the campaign. The next such event is scheduled for two different sessions on Sunday, January 27, 2013, at the Spare Time Bowling Center, 570 Columbia Turnpike, East Greenbush. It is open to anyone in the community for just $15, which includes either of the 2½-hour, all-you-can-bowl sessions (noon to 2:30 p.m. and 2:30 to 5 p.m.), plus rental shoes. In addition, raffles and prizes will be presented at each session. Registration will be on a walk-in basis. Because Rotary is a totally volunteer organization, all profits from the bowl-a-thon will go directly to RI’s PolioPlus initiative to end polio worldwide.

LA SALLE INSTITUTE TO HOST 6th ANNUAL ALUMNI HOCKEY GAME La Salle Institute will have its Annual Alumni Hockey Game on January 19, 2013. Graduates from back to the Class of 1967 are coming back to lace up their skates with alumni of all ages. Last year’s contest was the closest ever and late game strategy was taken into account with an empty net goal to lift the “young alums” team to its 5th straight victory. Bill Jabour from the Class of ’98 founded the game in 2008, and it has attracted current and former students, teachers, family and friends to return for a day of school spirit and celebration. La Salle Institute has a rich history in hockey dating back many decades. Brother Celsus John Brown ’31 was the first moderator of the hockey team, which won a state championship in 2000 under Coach Tim Flanigan. The puck will drop for this year’s Alumni Game at 1:30pm at HVCC’s Conway Ice Rink. Following the game at 4pm, there will be an after party at La Salle’s G. Richard Lewis ’53 Dining Hall. There are several great prizes in this year’s raffle as well, including a signed Martin Brodeur New Jersey Devils jersey from last year’s Stanley Cup Finals. Spots are still available for the game and after party. Registration and details can be found on the school website. Any questions regarding La Salle Institute alumni relations or events can be directed to Shane Hendry ’06 at or (518) 283-2500 x270.

POESTENKILL HISTORICAL SOC. MEETING The Poestenkill Historical Society will meet at 7PM in The Poestenkill Town Hall on January 22. This Month’s program will have Marvin Bubie discussing his third book which is an accumulation of seals from places involved in the Revolutionary War. This book is a celebration of the American Revolution, and a celebration of a unique freedom that resulted from it and of how Americans view civic identity. Marvin not only shows us the seal but tells us interesting and funny stories related to each one. The seal is official and can appear everywhere from welcome signs to our communities, to the podiums from which our officials speak, to identifying municipal buildings, vehicles, etc. Some seals are self explanatory, but many are not.

Quilts for Kids is a non-profit organization founded in 2000. Since our founding, over 100,000 quilts have been made and distributed worldwide, while at the same time saving millions of pounds of fabric from landfills. Institutional recipients of our quilts have included the Ronald McDonald House, Shriner’s Hospitals, Sloan-Kettering Pediatric Oncology, The Safe House, and many other institutions large and small. We respectfully ask for donations of any size for fabric and sewing supplies, gift certificates or gift cards, or monetary donations. Monetary donations can be made by check payable to Quilts for Kids.
