AP BOARD OF EDUCATION REPORT Dear Averill Park Community Members: At the April 23rd meeting, the Board adopted a resolution regarding high stakes testing as well as approved the Questar BOCES budget. In April, our 3rd through 8th grade students took a series of state exams meant to assess their grasp of the Common Core standards. The exam implementation has a devastating impact on all our students, particularly on the struggling learners and those with learning disabilities. The resolution asks the State to reduce testing and rely on multiple measures to understand the aptitude of our students, staff, and school quality. Be an educated voter on May 21st. There are three items to vote on: 1. Budget – This is the fourth consecutive budget year reduction, with cuts to art, music, kindergarten, languages and sports to keep our budget at the state approved tax levy limit. 2. Capital Project – All buildings will receive necessary improvements and the technology infrastructure will be upgraded to meet upcoming state demands. The community’s share of the project (17.5%) will create no local tax increase due to the retiring of earlier debt. 3. Board of Education seats – There are 3 seats and 3 candidates. They are Shawn Morgan, Stuart Nippes, and incumbent Peter Schaefer. Feel free to reach out to the Board at http:// or Superintendent Hoffman (hoffmanj@averillpark.k12.ny) for any clarification. Our next board meeting is on Tuesday, May 14th, at 7 pm. The agenda includes a food service program review as well as updates on the budget and capital project. Prior to the regular meeting, there will be a meet the candidate’s reception at 5:30 and the annual community budget meeting at 6:00. Please visit the district website at: for additional information and “like” us on Facebook for current happenings. ~ Sincerely, Superintendent Hoffman and the Board of Education

WE CANNOT AFFORD TO VOTE YES ON SCHOOL BUDGETS Letter to the Editor: As we approach our annual school budget vote, I want to explain to those who are predetermined to vote ‘yes’, that people who vote ‘no’ will not be doing so because of animus or greed. We don’t hate teachers. Our reasons are varied and include the knowledge that there is no correlation between spending and results. Some just can’t afford to vote yes anymore. Yes voters could simply be district employees who are afraid of losing their job, or young parents who still associate spending with quality. A yes vote often reflects an ideological stand, a belief in the superiority of a system of control over a seemingly riskier faith in freedom. The fact that a lot of taxpayers have decided not to waste their time on voting has given a false sense of majority status to those who celebrate their inevitable budget victories each and every year. But if we look at the big forest picture beyond these trees in our immediate view, can anyone claim victory? This concept of voting yes or no on a singular budget level is not even democratic and is a contributing factor in the overall dysfunction. Not that I believe in direct democracy in the first place but to do it right would require deciding between two budget levels. If one proposed budget represented a 2% increase from the previous year, it would have to compete against a 2% decrease in order for the vote to qualify as true democracy. Even the thought of such a change will cause heart palpitations among the administrators who read this. Let’s bring the debate to Albany where it belongs. The governor and legislative bodies have to dust off their statesmanship hats and focus on something other than reelection. The question we have to vote on is whether we need more control or more freedom, mandates or choice. There is only one correct answer. It doesn’t matter what a democratic majority decides is right. Consequences deliver the truth and it’s about time for democratic voters to open their eyes. ~ 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.

5th ANNUAL DENTISTRY FROM THE HEART Smiles were a little brighter on April 20th, 2013 at the 5th annual Dentistry from the Heart event hosted by Dr. David Starkman and his dedicated team. This year brought the program total to well over 200 local children who have now been given free dental services. The mascot frogs from JUMP, an indoor children’s play center provided the entertainment for those waiting to be seen. The volunteer efforts from Starkman and his team truly made a difference to the children in attendance. One parent at the event reflected on the experience, “Dr. Starkman and his crew made my son’s first dental experience relaxing and actually fun. Words cannot express how much we appreciate the kindness and generosity felt.”

THE GREAT OUTDOORS The world’s best therapist is waiting just outside your front door. Her name is Mother Nature. She offers free sessions anytime you decide to take time for yourself or your family. In a society where we fill our free time with smart phones, Ipads, video games and TV shows, it is easy to forget that we should “unplug” and enjoy the world outside. The importance is very underrated. • Filling our lungs with fresh air boosts our mood. • Kicking off the shoes and feeling the grass between your toes may help rid toxins from your body. • The sun is your best source of natural vitamin D. • Digging in dirt relaxes the body. • It reduces stress. • It encourages physical activity which decreases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity. This is especially important for children as it instills the importance and enjoyment of being active. I could go on and on. But what I want you to understand is that all it takes is you making the choice to simplify. Put on your shoes (or not) and get out there. Just sit. Or walk. Or run. Or dig. I promise, your mind and body will appreciate the break.

by Claire Everett Upstate New York’s weather just figured out something that AP sports have known for a while: it is the Spring Season! And with this sudden wave of sunshine, Averill Park has brought a renewed energy back into their games. This week, girl’s lacrosse battled against Ballston Spa and Columbia. On Thursday, the Warriors hosted Ballston Spa and contradicted the weather as they rained on their opponent’s parade. Averill Park won, 13-7, with goals by top scorers: Morgan Lionarons (2), Sofi Sorriento (4), Emily Halpin (3). Later in the week, AP took on Columbia in an always highly anticipated rival match. The ladies brought their best game, but unfortunately, couldn’t eke out a win this year, losing 13-7. Goals were earned by Morgan Lionarons (5), Caitlin O’Shea (2), and Sofi Sorriento and Megan Balter with one each. Baseball and Softball also had busy weeks. Baseball had two games, against Ballston Spa and Shenendehowa. Ballston Spa’s contest was held on Wednesday at Averill Park. The boy’s brought a good effort, but unfortunately, fell short by a score of 12-6. Then, on Friday, the boy’s battled against the giant Shen and put up a good fight, although they were not able to pull out the win, losing 5-1. Great game to Sam Beaulac who went 3 for 3 and hit Averill Park’s only home run. Softball started out a very busy week against Mohonasen, and brought home a win, 8-0. On Wednesday, Averill Park battled against Ballston Spa, again gaining the victory, 5-1. On Thursday, the ladies took on Ichabod and demolished the competition, 13-2. Finally, on Friday, the Warriors played Shenendehowa, but this time they couldn’t quite pull out the win, losing 3-0. Great job for the week though ladies! Outdoor track had multiple competitions this week. The girl’s team went to the Schenectady Invitational on Tuesday, 4/30, and came in 10th overall. Notable performances were given by Eden Zeitler, who came in 3rd in the 200 Meter Dash, Elaina Ryan, who took 3rd in the 400 Meter Dash, Brittany Mack, who placed 5th in the 800 Meter Run, and Emily Kronau who finished 4th in Girl’s High Jump. On the boy’s side, AP had great performances from Mike Hayes, who placed 4th in the 200 Meter Dash and earned 2nd in the Boys Triple Jump; and from Wesley Clayton who came in 4th in the 400 Meter Dash. Josh Foust took home the silver in the 3200 Meter Run, and Jon Rodgers came in second in both the Boys Shot Put and Discus Throw. Outstanding job to all the competitors! Now that the weather is permitting, make sure to head out to some great outdoor events to support the Warriors. And as a reminder, a sport’s schedule can be found on the Averill Park School District’s website. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at

The Outdoor track team here at APHS has been working hard every day after school for the past few months. One runner on the team, senior Mike Degenero, has really been working his legs on the track and his brain in the classroom. Three years ago, Mike joined track as a fun way to hang with friends and stay in shape; and he has loved it ever since. Even when he isn’t having the best day, going to track always makes up for it. Mike runs semi-short races, such as the 400 meter and the 800 meter, which means you have to be pretty quick. That being said, Degenero never wastes a second of his time. He’ll always make time to workout at the gym or go for a run around the neighborhood to make sure he’s in perfect condition before and during the season. Races for mike can either be extremely painful or really awesome. “I’ve learned that it’s challenging, but rewarding, so you have to fail in order to succeed. I’ve also learned that nothing is impossible, it’s what you make of it,” says the athlete. Mike has also learned some very valuable lessons outside of sports. He knows how to balance being a demanding athlete, while also being a top-notch student. “Being a scholar athlete is important to me, because I feel good knowing I can do my best in sports and my best in the classroom,” says Degenero. This year he is taking Writers Workshop, Contemporary Math, Environmental Science, Participation in Government, Senior Portfolio, Health, Economics and Cinema Literature. As for the future, Mike is still deciding between Saint Rose, Gordon College or Hudson Valley Community College. He is also still deciding between majors, such as Education, Communications and Fine Arts. In his spare time, Degenero likes to hang out with close friends and play video games or go golfing. Mike would like to thank his parents, because without them, he would not be the successful young man he is today. He will always be grateful for all the help and support they have given him. We wish Mike the best of luck and we see a very bright future for him ahead!

A ROSE PARADE ON MAIN STREET Letter to the Editor: I continue to be sad about the many historic buildings that have been bulldozed in the West Sand Lake village in the Town of Sand Lake. The absentee landlords continue to neglect their rental houses across from the WSL firehouse and several buildings in the Averill Park Village. I hate the peeling and faded paint, the unkempt lawns and lack of landscaping. Our new WSL drugstore’s lawn is now a wasteland of weeds. This visual blight needs to be addressed. Citizens’ voices and actions CAN make a difference. Fred and I have some ideas about beautifying our “Main Street,” Route 43. The architecture of our Main St. varies from salt boxes (circa 1800) to Georgian colonials to the many styles of the 20th century. One element that could bring some unity to our town is COLOR. Our rose parade has already started with red “Knock-Out” roses that are scattered along Main Street. They will soon double in number. Keep your eyes open - and better yet, join the parade. Red “knock-out” roses are available for sale in our area, or add other red flowers to your landscape! This place matters! ~ Dee Erickson, West Sand Lake 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.

HOW IS IT WITH YOUR FAMILY, MOM? On Mother’s Day, May 12, 2013, the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches will focus on the importance of Moms and the role of Moms in the lives of children.

Van Kampen will remind us that children will live out their lives as reflected in the eyes of their moms and/ or the persons who served as moms in their lives. They will live out the lives they feel in the touch of motherly hands, and the words they hear spoken to them by the words of motherly lips. Join us and come to more fully understand how children being taught the love of God in Christ are helped to grow most fully in that love. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary located in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. The Nassau Reformed Church worships in its chapel on the upper level of its Church-School-Building, 43 Church St. (Rte. 20) in the village.

WMHT is currently hosting Questar III’s 2013 High School Art Invitational scheduled for Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to noon and Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., April 17-May 10. An opening reception was held on Wednesday, April 17th. The exhibit, part of Questar III’s Cultural and Performing Arts Program, has showcased the talent of local students for the past 24 years. This year’s program includes artwork from 14 districts, including 37 student visual artists and two video artists. Beth Schroder, director of development at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, served as this year’s guest juror. She recognized the following students’ outstanding work: 1st Place: Jessica Mink, Ichabod Crane, Grade 11 - “Ectoplasm,” Glazed Earthenware; 2nd Place: Meghan Farley, East Greenbush, Grade 9 - “Untitled,” Pencil; 3rd Place: Emily Heier, Averill Park, Grade 11 - “Untitled,” Graphite Honorable Mentions: Zara Davis, Averill Park, Grade 10 “Around,” Clay; Oteria Ludwig, Schodack, Grade 11 “Reflections of a Geek,” Graphite and Color Pencil; Maria Balli, Ichabod Crane, Grade 12 “Cycles,” Glazed Earthenware; Alison Schermerhorn, Taconic Hills, Grade 12 - “Beach Fence,” Digital Art Pieces that are not selected for the WMHT exhibit will be displayed at Questar III’s Central Office during the same time period. WMHT Educational Telecommunications is located at 4 Global View in Troy, NY.

Supervisor and two Town Board seats are up. Interviews will be held during May and June. “We need diversity on the board to ensure elected officials are acting in the best interests of residents. Years of single party rule have led to high taxes and runaway spending,” said Chairwoman Elizabeth Gable. The Committee’s platform includes fiscal responsibility, open government, and encourages public participation. “We support economic development in compliance with our laws that doesn’t damage the quality of life for residents,” Gable said. “Our record of supporting local business demonstrates this.” “We want long term planning, the conservative use of town resources and input from citizens and business owners,” Gable said. “Elected representatives must balance the interests of all residents, while considering the cost of proposals, and impact on the welfare of the whole town. Building a strong tax base shouldn’t destroy neighborhoods or our natural resources.” For information about the Schodack Democratic Committee, visit or call Gable at 477-2630.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held on the second Saturday in May, benefits Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. “The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is important for our local communities because it helps stock food banks and pantries for summer, a time when there’s an increased need for food assistance, especially for children who are out of school,” said Fredric V. Rolando, NALC president. “The letter carriers are committed to supporting the drive by picking up and delivering food donations to local Feeding America food banks and hungerrelief organizations in their markets.
