SLCA - CIRCLE THEATRE PLAYERS PRESENTS â€œALMOST, MAINEâ€?
â€œThe Story of Hopeâ€? features Rebecca Lynne Hoffay (Wynantskill) and Steve Keller (Averill Park). A woman arrives at a manâ€™s door hoping to reconnect with her former love. Join us at the Sand Lake Center for the Arts as Circle Theatre Players presents the funny, feel good production â€œAlmost, Maineâ€?. Written by John Cariani, directed b y Cheryl Charbonneau, it begins on a cold, clear moonless night in the middle of winter. All is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the Northern Lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almostâ€™s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heals, and the hearts mend-almost-in this delightful midwinter nightâ€™s dream. Opening on Jan. 24 with additional performances on Jan. 25, 30, 31, Feb. 1 at 8 pm and Sunday, Jan. 26 and Feb. 2 at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $16 adults, $10 students under 18.

NEW HISTORIC DISPLAY CASE AT NASSAU TOWN HALL
Visitors to the Nassau Town Hall will be greeted by a display cabinet that features historical artifacts, documents and other materials from Nassau. The collection will be rotated in coming months.

LOCAL STUDENTS MAKE DEAN’S LIST AT MESSIAH COLL. The following students were named to the dean’s list for the 2013 fall semester at Messiah College: Melrose resident Luke Barton is a senior majoring in engineering. East Greenbush resident Michelle Brincat is a junior majoring in nursing. Wynantskill resident Corie Johnson is a senior majoring in marketing. Wynantskill resident Leo Pusatere is a junior majoring in business administration. Dean’s list is earned by receiving a 3.6 GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale.
RESPONSE to PETE STENSON’S OPEN LETTER to the RESIDENTS of E.G. Letter to the Editor: Yes, at the town’s organizational meeting on January 2, 2014, the new majority replaced many town employees, including Mr. Stenson, with new appointments. It was at just such a meeting where Mr. Stenson, Mr. VanWormer, and many of their colleagues received their appointments when the Democrats were in control. Unfortunate as it may be for those who lost their jobs, a changing of the guard is, in fact, a reality of politics at every level of government when another party assumes control. The former town employees knew that this day might come when they happily accepted their appointments from the former Democratic majority. On November 5, 2013, the residents of East Greenbush spoke at the polls when they elected Deb DiMartino and me to the town board. While we campaigned last year, it quickly became apparent that many residents were extremely concerned about the fiscal condition of the town, and about reports from the local and national media that the town of East Greenbush was compared to the city of Detroit: both were found to be on a list of the top 10 municipalities in the country that were most at risk of going bankrupt. Combined with our junk-bond status and faulty inter-fund borrowing practices that had, and still have, the town deeply in debt, the residents delivered an astounding vote of no-confidence to the Democrats who had been in power for the last 14 years. It is now time to move on, to accept the reality of the new guard, and to come together as a community to restore our town to sound fiscal health. The new majority, myself included, is confident that our carefully chosen appointments will do an excellent job for the residents of East Greenbush. We are both excited and enthusiastic about working hard in the coming months and years to make East Greenbush one of the premier communities in the Capital District in which to live and work. Please join us in helping to make our town all it can be, now and in the future. ~ Mary Ann Matters, East Greenbush Town Councilperson 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.

AFTER THE FIRE Open Letter: On Dec 12, 2013, we had a massive barn fire in which I lost my husband, 4 of our horses and our 2 story barn. Just as there aren’t any words that can comfort us in this tragedy, there aren’t any words great enough to tell all the people who took care of us that night, the days and weeks after the fire, of the gratitude we feel. When we could not stand up, family, friends, neighbors and even people we did not know, stood up for us. I can’t thank enough the town for their support or the fire departments and the firemen that came to our rescue. Although, we could do nothing the next day, family, friends & horse people were there rounding up my remaining horses, putting up corrals, carrying water buckets, bringing in hay, grain, halters, lead ropes, blankets, shavings & even food for us etc. We will never forget the generosity of the community, family & friends, & the members of the Grafton Trail Riders… The amount of donations in Keith’s name that came into the Columbia Greene Humane Society was overwhelming as well. As odd as it sounds, we are truly fortunate. Thank you to all who took care of us in our time of need. I don’t know what we would have done without you. I and my family can’t thank you enough… ~ Dolores Meissner Keith Jr. and Bob Meissner

VALENTINE’S DAY MIXER

Karaoke at 8PM. Come mix and mingle whether you’re an alumnus or not. Bring a friend or find one there!
POTATOES IN NORTH GREENBUSH I can say with some assurance that the residents of North Greenbush ate lots of potatoes in 1865. How do I know? It’s from information found in the 1865 New York State Census. More about the potatoes claim later. People doing family research often make use of the Federal Census begun in 1790 and occurring every 10 years. You can find names, dates and occupations etc. in these censuses. However, I like what I call the “social detail” found in the state censuses and especially the 1865 version. Since the Civil War had just ended, the census includes name, rank unit, term of enlistment and remarks such as wounded or discharged. The War information also includes deaths, whether they were killed in battle or later died of wounds and where the soldier is buried. Also included is information regarding marriages and deaths during the year ending June 1, 1865. Bride and groom names, dates, ages, where they lived and religious denomination are given. Data concerning deaths lists name, age, date of death, country of origin and cause. Common causes include cholera, diphtheria, scarlet fever, consumption and dropsy. You have to wonder if modern medicine could have cured many of these diseases. If you think government collects a lot of data today, look at the 1865 agriculture statistics. There are 135 different categories. Some seem relevant such as the acreage in use, the different kind of farm animals, and crops (lots of wheat and surprisingly many fruits and vegetables). I do quibble on why the government needed to know the amount of manure produced on each farm. There are miscellaneous statistics broken down separately by what is generally Wynantskill and Defreestville. In the former, there were two churches: the Reformed Church and the True Reformed Church (the name is a story for another time). There were two churches in Defreestville: the Reformed Dutch and the Baptist Church. Defreestville had five inns/taverns, 1 wholesale store and four retail stores; while Wynantskill had one retail store and only two inns/taverns. I guess most of the drinking took place in the southern part of town. Now back to potatoes: In Wynantskill, about 10 percent of the crops were affected by drought; while in Defreestville, “all crops except potatoes were materially affected.” See, there’s lots of good stuff in the census.

E. O’CONNOR NAMED to the FALL 2013 SUNY GENESEO’S PRESIDENT’S LIST Eliza O’Connor from Rensselaer, was named to the President’s List at The State University of New York at Geneseo for the fall semester 2013.

EMMANUEL REFORMED CHURCH WELCOMES PASTOR DIRK GIESER It is with great excitement and anticipation that the congregation of the Emmanuel Reformed Church will be led in worship for the first time by our new pastor, Dirk Gieser.

AREA RESIDENTS NAMED TO SUNYIT PRESIDENT’S LIST The following students were among those named to the President’s List for the fall 2013 semester at SUNYIT. Jennifer Dewolf of Averill Park, Nursing/Family Nurse Prac; Stacey Flenory of Rensselaer, Nursing/Family Nurse Prac; Kyle Dickinson of Schaghticoke, Mechanical Engr Technology; Andrew Broughel of Wynantskill, Mechanical Engr Technology. A semester grade point average of 3.60 or above qualifies fulltime, matriculated students for inclusion on the President’s List.
We began 2014 with our swearing-in of town officials and our organizational meeting. I would like to thank all those that have done so much and give so much to continue the progress in Nassau. If you would like to join us in our efforts, please be sure to contact me. We are looking for people to serve on our Zoning Board of Appeals and our Planning Board. These are two important committees that greatly impact the responsible development of our community. I’m pleased to report that we concluded the 2013 fiscal year in very good shape. We continued to push all departments for savings and we succeeded by coming in under budget for the year. This is certainly helpful since we are experiencing some truly crazy weather which will certainly strain our highway budget. On January 30, at 7:00 pm, we will be holding a public hearing on the development of a new sewer use ordinance for the Burden Lake Sewer District. In order to make this meeting more accessible, we will be holding this hearing at the Hoags Corners Fire House. Copies of this ordinance and relevant district information may be found at townofnassau.org. You may have noticed that the Loeffel Toxic Landfill has been receiving a great deal of news recently. This is no accident. We have been working together with community groups and representatives from the village level to the United States Senate to push our case for a comprehensive health study of those impacted by this site and for a complete cleanup and remediation. Recently, these efforts have included a call to prevent any further contamination from entering the Valatie Kill. I would like to thank all assisting us in this effort. Our latest successes involved urging federal and state officials to press Vice President Joseph Biden for a complete remediation of the site during his recent visit. Due to our coalition, this call made national news. We have made it clear to all who will listen that a comprehensive study of the health and environmental impacts of this Superfund site must be done and the EPA must make sure that their approved remediation activities do not further increase contamination in communities. Fifty years of review and botched remediation are long enough for any community to deal with such a plague. Our fight and efforts continue.

Happy New Year! January has had a busy, but strong start. I would like to take a moment to thank all members of the Town staff for their hard work and dedication throughout 2013. We had a positive year, and I look forward to continue that momentum in the New Year. I would like to welcome Deberah DiMartino and Mary Ann Matters to the Town Board. Both candidates are motivated to improve the Town of East Greenbush and to work together in accomplishing this. I look forward to working with Deb and Mary Ann, as well as Sue and Phil. I would also like to welcome some new staff members to the Town; Anthony Corellis , the new Commissioner of Public Works; Dan Fiacco, the Deputy of Commissioner of Public Works and Melissa Nusbaum the new Secretary to the Commissioner of Public Works. This new team brings over 40 years of experience within job site construction and general experience that will help advance operations of our Department of Public Works. We have a wonderful new team in Town Hall who have strong backgrounds and experience that will benefit both the Town and the daily operations. Our main goal is to work together towards the common goal of reducing the Town deficit and running the daily operations more efficiently. Earlier this month I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new H&R Block location in the Hannaford Plaza. This is a new office and location for H&R Block, and it was an enjoyable event. We wish them lots of success this tax season and years to come. Over the past few months, a number of small businesses have opened up throughout town like Cafecito and Nishiki Sushi. This past Monday, at the SUNY East Campus, UAlbany President Robert Jones announced a collaboration project with BioHarvest Ltd, which over the next two years could create over 60 local jobs. With the expansion of SUNY East Campus and Regeneron, along with the continued progression of the Waste Water Treatment Plant, all signs are pointing in a positive direction for the Town of East Greenbush. I look forward to delivering more news as it becomes available this year. As always, my door is always open. Be Well.

*Have a good idea of your potential guest list. How many guests will be invited will determine how many invitations you will need. Invitations vary in price, so cost may be a consideration if your guest list is extensive. *Decide on the formality of the wedding. Will you be hosting a black tie affair, or will it be a casual gathering at the shore? Guests infer many things about the wedding from the invitations, which should match the formality of the event in style and the sentiments expressed. *Dare to be different by playing with invitation sizes and shapes. Rectangular cards are standard for wedding invitations, but you can explore your creativity by choosing more modern, artsy invitations. Just keep in mind that cards that are not the standard shape and size could be more costly to send. Always have the entire wedding invitation weighed and priced at the post office so you will know what the postage will cost. *Choose a legible font and text color. Your invitation may look beautiful, but it may prove ineffective if it is difficult to read. * Keep the invitation simple. All you need are the key pieces of information, such as the “who,” “what,” “where,” and “when.” Crowding the card will take away from its aesthetic appeal. Most stationers will suggest a separate, smaller insert in the wedding invitation for the reception information and response card. *Do some math. It is important to know your dates so you can receive the invitations on time, mail them out, and give guests enough time to respond. A good rule of thumb is to mail out the invitations at least two months before the wedding. Have an RSVP date of no more than three to four weeks before the wedding, giving ample time to the caterers and accommodating anyone who procrastinates in sending in a response. *Order extra. Mistakes happen, and you may need to send out a few extra invitations.

Kyle Thibeault has been bowling for fourteen years now. Kyle became involved in bowling through watching his brother and father bowl. “It looked fun, so I started bowling in a bumper league” claims Kyle; “I moved to a regular league and have been bowling ever since.” Kyle has been bowling on the varsity team since 8th grade, and has been captain for the past two years on the team. He has bowled one 300 game (perfect game) and his high three game series is a 762. Kyle prepares for the bowling season by bowling over the summer and fall in two recreational leagues. He bowls almost every day, dedicating each time to one part of his game he is looking to improve upon. Owner of the bowling alley, Art Hoffman, is always willing to help Kyle with his game and give him advice. Kyle also works at Hi-way Recreation where he is a youth coach, teaching kid’s sportsmanship and the fundamentals of bowling. Besides from bowling, Kyle also played Averill Park baseball his freshman year of high school and continues to play outside of school today. “I have been very fortunate to have many good people influence me throughout my life,” says Kyle; “everyone from teachers to coaches to bosses, and especially my family, have had a part in making me the person I am today.” Kyle also shared with me what being a scholar athlete means to him, “Being a scholar athlete means you need to be multi-dimensional, you can’t just be good at throwing strikes. You have to work as hard at academics as you do on your game. To me, it also means trying to set an example and encourage my teammates and others around me to excel, while constantly learning and trying to improve myself.” Kyle is taking AP (Advanced Placement) Calculus, Physics, Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA), Government and Economics, Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Health, with an accumulative GPA of 91.62. Kyle is also a member of the National Honor Society. Congratulations on a successful high school career, Kyle, and the best of luck to you in the future! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

This will allow players to be placed at their skill level instead of their age only and will apply to each of our three seasons across all age groups. Additionally, those 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 anticipate that these rule changes will provide tremendous flexibility for players who qualify. The 2014 Registration Form can be found on our website at: sorensco.baberuthonline.com. Please email any questions to: Sorensco@gmail.com.

Mike, second from right, listens as church secretary Ruth Dickson discusses the church history and, from left, pastor David Moore and David Dickson listen.

OPEN LETTER FROM FORMER DPW COMMISSIONER VanWORMER Letter to the Editor: As you may or may not know, I was not reappointed to my position as DPW Commissioner of the Town of East Greenbush, for the year 2014. As commissioner, I was able to meet many residents that I would not have had the opportunity to meet, had I not been appointed to the position. I have spoken to many, many residents, about problems they may have had during my 3 ½ years, doing my best to solve any problem I could. One thing I pride myself on, is the fact that I ALWAYS returned a phone call to residents who tried to contact me, by stopping at the office or calling. I TRULY had an open door policy. I would like to take this time to thank all of the taxpayers in town for allowing me to serve as commissioner, hopefully to your satisfaction. Additionally, I would like to thank the employees of The Town of East Greenbush, from the employees at Town Hall, to the Police and Dispatchers who I had many late night conversations with and worked closely with. Most importantly, I would like to thank the men of the various departments of the Public Works, Highway, Sewer, Water, Parks, Transfer Station and Maintenance. Not everyone knows what you men do every day, but I always recognized your dedication and hard work. A special thanks goes out to my secretary, Nanci Hicks, who was also let go, along with 9 others let go by the new Republican Majority. Finally, I would like to wish good luck to my replacements, Commissioner Anthony Corellis and Deputy Commissioner, Dan Fiacco. I urge you to place the safety of the taxpayers on top of your priority list. ~ Dave VanWormer, Former Commissioner of Public Works Town of East Greenbush

AN ASSURANCE FOR ALL SEASONS On Sunday, January 26, 2014, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will examine the intent of the writer of Psalm 27 assuring us of the Lord’s protection as we come to fear our enemies. Enemies here represents emotions, trials, temptations, sorrow and trouble- anything that brings us fear. God “will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent, he will set me high upon a rock,” says the psalmist. In the sermon titled, “An Assurance for All Seasons,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will speak to the many situations about us that cause us to fear- economic setback or loss, the future and what change holds for us, losing loved ones, and being separated from friends; and he’ll talk about how assurance of God’s love and care can be a stronghold for living, even in the midst of trouble. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 am. in its chapel at 43 Church Street (route 20), 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, just south of the only caution light in the hamlet of Stuyvesant.

REPUBLICAN PARTY CELEBRATES MAJOR 2013 ELECTION VICTORIES WITH NEW YEAR’S DAY SWEARING-IN CEREMONY The Rensselaer County Republican Committee celebrated major victories during the 2013 elections with the inauguration of elected officials at the historic Rensselaer County Court House in downtown Troy on New Year’s Day, Wednesday, January 1, Chairman John Rustin announced. Republicans won all three contested county-wide offices, including County Executive, County Clerk and Surrogate’s Court, retained a super-majority on the County Legislature, and won the majority of local elected officials. The local wins include Republicans gaining control of the East Greenbush Town Board, among other gains. The elected officials sworn in include County Executive Kathleen Jimino, County Clerk Frank Merola, County Surrogate Court Judge-elect Paul Morgan, and Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid. Republicans saw legislators elected as part of a 13-6 majority, including Stan Brownell, Phil Danaher, Ken Herrington, Leon Fiacco, Kelly Hoffman, Rob Bayly, Thomas Walsh Sr., Todd Tesman, Alex Shannon, Judith Breselor, Lester Goodermote and Mike Stammel. Also sworn in were Troy Councilman-elect Jim Gordon and Troy Councilman Dean Bodnar. The swearing-in ceremony also included remarks by Congressman Chris Gibson and Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin.

County Court Judge Debra Young swore in members of the County Legislature majority, with Troy City Court Judge Matthew Turner swearing-in Councilman Gordon and Councilman Bodnar. The wins by county Republicans in 2013 follow a strong showing by Republicans in the 2012 elections, including the election of Debra Young as County Court Judge, re-election of Catherine Cholakis as Family Court Judge, election of State Senator Kathy Marchione, and re-election of State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin and Congressman Chris Gibson.

LOVE LUTHERAN CHURCH Although we have only Hollywood movies as a source, it is not unlikely that when the kings and queens of old entered their throne room, trumpeters heralded their arrival. A richly attired court official would pound the floor with a long ceremonial pole announcing that their majesty’s had arrived. Although he did not use a trumpet, nor a staff, Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of God had arrived. Where? Join us at Love Lutheran Church this Sunday as we rediscover the location of God’s Kingdom through a sermon entitled, “The Kingdom is here” based on Mark 1: 14-15. Love Lutheran Church is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush. Worship begins at 10 AM. Please go to our new website http://www.lovelutheran. net/ – for more information and directions, or call 477-8685.
