Read All Day is a celebration of reading at Algonquin Middle School. Dr. James Hoffman, Superintendent, read to the school on the news. Teachers and special guest readers read to students to mark this special day. Authors Terry Trueman and Edward Averett were Algonquin’s guest authors for Read All Day! Trueman won a Printz Honor in 2001 for Stuck in Neutral. Averett has written four books, including Cameron and the Girls. They spoke about their books and the writing process with each grade. Reflecting on RAD, one student said, “Stuck in Neutral made me want to know more about cerebral palsy.” Students had an opportunity to meet both authors as they signed their books after school. They gave Algonquin students, faculty and staff a memorable day to remember! AMS is grateful to the Student Council for funding this event, to APO volunteers and for administrative support.

Oasis Park Miniature Golf Course, located on Rte 4 in North Greenbush, was recently awarded “Best Of” by the readers of Metroland Magazine for the 9th time. In mid May, Oasis owner Tom Paone will be installing new miniature golf carpet and will be changing cup locations on his 18 hole miniature golf course. As a result, the 14 year old course will look and play like it is brand new. During this past winter, the course’s clubhouse was transformed into The Sweet Station, which will provide its customers with decadent desserts and an assortment of delicious baked goods, as well as hard and soft ice cream and frozen yogurt. Customers will have 28 toppings, including fresh fruit, to choose from at The Sweet Station’s new sundae bar. The interior of the clubhouse has been redecorated with a new train theme, as well as new seating areas and lighting. An electric train will be soon running along the periphery of the walls with bells, whistles and smoke and is sure to create an atmosphere of excitement, wonderment and comfort for The Sweet Station’s customers. “This reminds me of the exciting happenings of 1999 when we first built our course and ice cream stand,” said Tom Paone who is the owner of Oasis. “We are really looking forward to having our customers play our course, as the change in cup locations and new turf will transform it back to the course it was in 1999. At the same time, The Sweet Station will provide a new, year round, destination point for satisfying the sweet tooth needs of our customers for both freshly baked desserts and ice cream.” The Grand Re-Opening of Oasis Park and The Sweet Station will be on Saturday, May 18th, at 11 am. The first 75 customers can play miniature golf, as well as free samples of the ice cream and/or baked goods at The Sweet Station. Season passes will be discounted 50% for the first 50 customers through the door. Oasis Park Miniature Golf and The Sweet Station: Successfully setting the standard in the Capital Region for family fun, as well as great ice cream for the past 14 years.

LWVRC ANNUAL MEETING The League of Women Voters of Rensselaer County continues to celebrate “Women’s History Month” and the suffragette movement by inviting local author Terri Gay to speak at the annual meeting and dinner on May 23 at 6 p.m. at Carol’s Place, 536 Pawling Ave., Troy. Ms. Gay will discuss her recent book “Strength Without Compromise: Womanly Influence and Political Identity in Turn-of-the Century Rural Upstate New York”. Teri Gay is originally from Glens Falls, NY and graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Government and certification in social studies from St. Lawrence University. The setting of her book is the national women’s rights movement at the beginning of the 20th century and women’s vision for political equality and suffrage in our local rural counties. The book is based on thirty years of research on the women’s suffrage movement in the southern Adirondacks region and also features contributions of Susan B. Anthony. For more information about the May 23rd event please refer to the League website, . ~ Submitted by Anne Burton, publicity director - League of Women Voters of Rensselaer County

SAMUEL BROWN GRADUATES from UNIVERSITY OF EVANSVILLE Samuel Brown of Nassau, has graduated from the University of Evansville with the degree of Bachelor of Science. Brown, majoring in Theatre, graduated during UE’s 155th Commencement, held Saturday, May 4th, at the Ford Center in downtown Evansville. During the ceremony, the University awarded 595 degrees to 579 graduates – the largest graduating class in over a decade.

Public officials and community members joined together on Earth Day as the Town of Nassau held a groundbreaking ceremony for the first-ever public trails project in the community. The start of this project begins after a study of the area and the donations of hours of community service by residents. ”We have looked for ways to open town property to our taxpayers and this is an exciting first step in this process. We are pleased that such a diverse habitat area will be able to be accessed for year-round recreation,” stated Supervisor David Fleming. The Mud Pond Preserve is a nearly 100 acre tract of diverse habitat. The pond itself is a rare acidic bog lake which contains its own unique flora and fauna. Once phase one of the project is completed, it is expected two miles of trails will be open for hiking, exploring and winter recreation. The Town anticipates adding several more trails. All development will be in keeping with the goal to protect sensitive habitat areas while providing recreational opportunities for residents. Representatives from community groups were present at the event and pledged their support for the project.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Is there more to life than this? Do you ever question the relevance of the Bible? Does God exist? Did humans really evolve? Do you know where the different people races came from? Did dinosaurs exist with people? Why is there death and suffering in the world? Was there really a Noah’s Ark and a worldwide flood? How old is the earth? Who determines what is right and wrong? What role does the devil play in my life? Do you ever ponder on questions like these and wish you had truthful answers? Look no further! We have your answers. After this study you will be able to answer all these questions, and many more, with absolute certainty. Join us every Wednesday night through July 31, 2013 at 7:00pm for a casual, relaxed, FREE study titled The Foundations at Connecting Point Church.

What is Lymphedema And How Is It Treated? LYMPHEDEMA is the accumulation of a protein rich lymph fluid which typically gets trapped between the skin and the muscle with the connective tissues due to a dysfunctional operating lymphatic system. Most commonly noted in the extremities, with one extremity being larger than the other. Lymphedema can, however, occur in the groin, head and Submitted by trunk. Lymphedema has multiple causes, primary or congenital (being born with the Sara Chauvot Physical Therapist disease). Secondary lymphedema is due to injury/damage as a result of cancer and or cancer treatments, surgeries, tumors, thermal burns, and repeated infections such as cellulitis to name a few. Lymphedema has four stages; ranging from latency, meaning the individual shows no signs but is at risk due to factors listed previously; reversible stage, the limb demonstrates pitting edema but may spontaneously subside with treatment; irreversible stage, limb size has increased and the edema is nonpitting with skin that has become thicker/ fibrosis; lymphostatic elephantiasis, limb size has continued to increase, skin is fibrotic with an orange peel effect, and recurrent cellulitis infections are common. There is currently no cure for lymphedema. However, once diagnosed with Lymphedema by a physician, the next step is to seek out a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT). Treatment for lymphedema includes patient education and Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), which includes manual lymph drainage (MLD) techniques to activate working lymphnodes and open lymphatic fluid pathways followed by application of mechanical compression bandages to control and reduce the amount of fluid in the limb. Upon completion of CDT, the patient should be independent with self-MLD and compression bandage and/or compression garment application for ongoing management.

It is with deepest sadness that I announce that Justin Schultz, our Town’s Planning Board Chairman, passed away on May 2, 2013. Justin served on the Planning Board for over two decades. He worked tirelessly to serve the people of our community and received recognition from the NYS Planning Federation for his efforts. There is no doubt that Justin gave generously to the Town. He had a wealth of knowledge related to many Town projects and will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family and friends. The following are highlights from the May 8, 2013 meeting of the Sand Lake Town Board: • Area Break-Ins – Sand Lake has experienced some recent area burglaries. State Police are asking residents to be vigilant – lock your doors and windows and speak to your neighbors to ensure awareness. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, report all suspicious activity, people or vehicles to the State Police. • Public Hearings Held– A public hearing was held to consider adoption of an ordinance to provide rules for good order and safety at the Glass Lake Fishing Access Area. The second public hearing was held on NYS Real Property Tax Law 485b to clarify that the Town offers this partial exemption for businesses. • Acceptance of MS4 Annual Report – The Town Board accepted the draft Annual MS4 Report as final and will submit this report to the Department of Environmental Conservation. This report is required by the State and reports our Town’s efforts to protect and improve the water quality of our streams and water bodies. • West Fall Village – Referral – The Board referred plans for a mixed use building and property owners’ pool and changing rooms at Westfall Village to the Planning Board. The Planning Board will report their findings within 45 days. • Acceptance – Insurance Settlement – The windstorm of December 21, 2012 destroyed the Town’s stage at Butler Park. A subsequent claim was made to the Town’s insurance carrier and the Board voted to accept the offer of $20,255.51 as the fair and actual replacement value of the stage. The next Town Board Workshop is Wednesday, May 29, 2013, at 7:30 pm; and the next Town Board Meeting is on June 12, 2013 at 7:30 pm at the Sand Lake Town Hall. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, ideas or concerns – 674-2026 ext. 12 or

APCSD ANNUAL SCHOOL VOTE Dear Averill Park Residents, Tuesday, May 21, is our annual school vote. Our goal continues to be to provide the best education for our students during these unprecedented economic times. There are three areas on which to vote: I. School Budget - For the fourth consecutive year, the budget is reduced from the prior year. Although a small reduction, it is based upon the amount of state aid received and the limited by the district’s tax levy cap; II. Capital Improvement Project - There are no “exciting” areas for this project; it is primarily improvements in infrastructure with two large-ticket items; needed technology infrastructure and high school auditorium improvements; III. Board of Education Seats - We have three candidates running for the three open seats. Shawn Morgan, Stuart Nippes, and Peter Schaefer. Peter is running for his second term and Shawn and Stuart will be first term appointees. You should have received a mailing this week regarding the vote. The mailing provides information on all three of the vote areas. Please review the mailing as well at the district website. Information can be found under the Budget Corner called “Budget Information at Your Fingertips.” If you don’t see the answer you are looking for, feel free to contact me at I will be happy to provide the answer you need. Finally, I encourage you to vote on May 21. It is easy to brush it aside and not worry about it, but it is critical for the voices of the entire community to be heard. The polls will be open from 7:00 AM until 9:00 PM in the HS auxiliary gym. Exit surveys will also be available for you to share your insight. I hope to see you there! ~ Superintendent Hoffman and the Board of Education

by Claire Everett Averill Park spring sports are finishing off their regular seasons with a bang, and going into the post-season as prepared as possible. Girl’s lacrosse, softball, and boy’s baseball and tennis all came through with some great wins this week. Averill Park girl’s lacrosse began to wrap up their season this past week with games against Bethlehem and Colonie. On Wednesday, the girls traveled to Bethlehem and represented their home school well, though Bethlehem was too much for the Warriors. AP lost 13-6. Top scorers for Averill Park were Caitlin O’Shea, with 2 goals, and Sofi Sorriento, with 2 as well. Then on Friday, the Warriors hosted Colonie. The ladies were not ready to surrender to another large school team; Averill Park played with precision and teamwork as they took the win over Colonie, 14-6. The main goal scorers were: Morgan Lionarons (5), and Sofi Sorriento (2). The ladies have their last game next week on Tuesday. I will let you know more about Track and Field recent competitions in next week’s article. The Softball team played against Bethlehem on Tuesday 5/7. The match went for extra innings, and finally ended with a great win from Averill Park, 2-1. Following the exhausting Tuesday afternoon game, Averill Park hosted Colonie on Thursday. In the highly anticipated game, both teams fought hard and the game came down to the wire, but unfortunately, AP fell short this time, 9-8. Finally, on Saturday, Averill Park played Troy, and sadly lost again, 8-2. AP’s baseball started their week of sports on Tuesday against Bethlehem. The boy’s unfortunately, lost, but the boys earned back some redemption by beating Colonie on Thursday, 13-7. On Saturday, AP took on Catholic High, and unfortunately, fell short, 5-4. Both baseball and softball have their last games of the regular season next week; good luck to both teams, and finish the season off strong! Also, congratulations to the boy’s tennis team. Last week, AP tennis entered sectionals and brought away a win against CBA 4-3 in the opening round. The team was aided in their win by Matt Reasor and Eric Bush, who both won their matches in straight sets. Brian Scherer also won in straight sets over his opponent. The match was clinched when Nate Glanton came back to win a tie-break in the second set, and then won a long battle in the 3rd set. The team will face Burnt Hills, the defending Section A Champs, in the second round of Sectionals. Next week will wrap up the regular season, so make sure to come and support the seniors and their teams as they play some of their last high school games. As a heads up, on Monday, May 20th, modified sports will be holding a “Game Day.” All three modified spring teams will play on the Algonquin fields @ 4:15 in active support of modified sports, which are in danger of being cut next year. If you have any questions, or comments, feel free to contact me at

It can be rare to find an athlete with the dedication to their team and the academic achievement that senior Megan Coleman has. Megan has been playing lacrosse since seventh grade. She chose lacrosse because it wasn’t a very popular sport, so she wanted to see what it was like. Turns out, she absolutely loved it and it has been a major part of her life ever since. Coleman is currently an attack player, but she has played defense in the past. Her favorite part of playing is just being part of the team. She has played with the same girls for many years now, and they have all become really close; so they really look forward to seeing each other every day. During the off season, Coleman spends about three of four days a week conditioning and practicing her skills. She has played for outside leagues and also participated in before/after school gettogethers for anyone who wants to play lacrosse. During the season, she practices hard every day after school with the team in preparation for the intense games to come. Megan takes games very seriously, because it’s her chance to show off all her hard work and compete for a win. Coleman also takes her time at school very seriously. She has always had an outstanding academic record and works hard every day to keep it that way. This year she is taking Advanced Placement Government and Advanced Placement Biology. Both classes are a lot of work, but Megan really likes to challenge herself. She is also taking statistics, which is fun because she enjoys math. In the future, she plans to major in Biology and eventually become a Veterinarian because of her love for animals. With all the time Megan spends preparing for her next lacrosse game or studying for her Biology exam, it’s hard to imagine that she has much free time on her hands. When she does, however, Coleman likes to get involved with the community. She has volunteered at Albany Medical Center numerous times, and she is also very involved with her church, St. Henry’s. Megan’s family has been her main source of inspiration over the years. “I have always been taught to be myself, help others, and be friends with everyone,” says Coleman. Her family has taught her these important lessons, and have always been there to support her. She would like to thank her parents for her success, because they have always pushed her to try harder. She would also like to take time to thank her coaches who have helped her understand the game and improve her skills over the years. “Being given the honor to be a scholar athlete is really important to me, because I have always tried hard in school and I have always been athletic,” says the athlete. Coleman has absolutely loved her time playing lacrosse over the years. “It has taught me how to be part of a team, how to be a leader, and much more than just playing the sport.” We wish Megan the best of luck in the future!

PUBLIC INVITED FOR A WALK IN THE WOODS Join the Capital District Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association (NYFOA) and the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance for a free walk on Sunday, May 19th, starting at 9:00 am at 1463 Plank Road, Petersburgh, NY 12138. Master Forest Owner Walter Kersch will lead us on the walk through his managed woodlot to see a diverse forest mix with openings created for wildlife habitat improvement. The forest understory exhibits severe deer browse damage of many desirable tree species, but some nice black cherry seedlings are regenerating in recently harvested areas. Beech control measures have been employed in previously high graded stands, lessening competition for seedlings of desirable species. Walter has promised to demonstrate how logs are scaled (measured) for sawing, and a portable band sawmill will be on hand to make lumber. Let’s see how close Walter comes to estimating the board feet volume in the log! Families are welcome. Please allow about 3 hours for this informative stroll. Wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, and apply your preferred insect repellent. Contact Walter at (518) 283-5509 or Phil at 895-5346 by May 18th to help plan parking, handouts, etc. Find good directions at For other events, visit http://

MINK-CLAXTON FIRE & STAMMEL SUPPORT RENSSELAER UPSTATE REBELS BASEBALL Rensselaer has produced some excellent baseball players, and Legislator Mike Stammel has decades of service to youth sports teams in the city.

Troy was one of the first communities in this area to buy steam controlled fire trucks, so the firefighters were able to contain the fire laterally. The fire was finally stopped at what is now 8th Street to the east, Federal Street to the north and Congress Street to the south. There are many more facts to learn about this historical event, so we hope you will be able to attend. The program is free, refreshments to follow.

It’s now up to you! by Ronald Berti Two weeks ago, the Committee to Create a Community Center From the Old School Building published a position paper. Everywhere I go in Town the reaction has been very positive. Residents come up to me with quiet praise for our work and a sincere desire that we can convince our elected representatives to work together to make this dream a reality. They not only have identified themselves as Town residents, but as members of potential user groups for the Community Center. But herein lies the problem. While as individuals they have vocalized their support for the project; it has not yet coalesced into a sustained and unified movement representing their organizations. I have urged these people to become more vocal within their clubs to formalize their support. This endeavor on the part of the Committee not only seeks to create, centralize and expand a venue for Community Activities, but also seeks to preserve for the future a building that has great historical significance for thousands of former students who have passed through its hallowed halls. Furthermore, this building is an architectural beauty set upon a plain of green splendor. It would be a shame if this building went the way of St. Patrick’s Church in Watervliet and succumbed to the wrecker’s ball, to a heap of rubble. We are losing too many of our Landmarks in this country. There are now gaps in our history as told in the progression of our buildings. The terminal for the Troy & New England Railway is no longer recognizable. The Glass Factory is gone. The mills that brought fame and prosperity to Sand Lake are crumbling. Is the School going to go the same way and fade into the mists of time and the memories of its graduates? Let us give the School a re-birth of usefulness, value, convenience and practicality. Let it be many things for many people: Child Care Center; Youth Group Center; Library; Town Hall; Elder Care Center; a place for Social Groups such as the Garden Club, Kiwanis, Historical Society, Scouts, Athletic Leagues and others to gather and enjoy. The Committee has taken us to a hilltop from which we can see into the future. But for that insight and for that knowledge, our elected officials must commit to working for the benefit of all residents as part of the vision of the future. However, we can only do so much. It is now up to you , my fellow residents, to express your opinion to your elected officials. This is a Public Building and it will be a political decision, hopefully non-partisan, to either save or abandon the School. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm and the willingness to confront great challenges. Remember, if St. George had killed a dragonfly instead of a dragon, who would remember him?

APHS MUSIC DEPT. INVITES COMMUNITY The Averill Park High School Music Department would like to invite the community to their concerts this year! As always, concerts begin at 7pm unless otherwise indicated, and take place in the High School auditorium. As in years past, the music program has an active year planned. Some of the highlights include: May 17/18 – NYSSMA Solo/Ensemble Festival @ Columbia HS. Students “audition” on a solo or small ensemble work of their choice, performing for an adjudicator who gives them unbiased feedback. Scores are used for acceptance into various other programs (such as Area All-State), and the process helps prepare students for auditions. May 21 – APHS Music Department Concert and Reception, Annual Chicken BBQ. This coincides with the budget vote. May 24/25 – NYSSMA Instrumental Majors hosted at APHS. Various school ensembles (bands and orchestras) will travel to APHS to perform for adjudication. May 31 – APHS Arts Gala - 6pm. A final event featuring all of the senior (grade 12) artists (visual and performing) at Averill Park High School.We hope to see you at one of our events! Thank you in advance for your continued support!

This month’s movie at St. Timothy’s Church, 470 Winter Street Extension is Academy Award Winner “The Life Of Pi”. The one showing will begin at 6:30 on May 17th. A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While a cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome B engal tiger. The movie created from the original book is a breathtaking visual experience. The Bengal tiger will also take your breath away. Admission is free, as is our Popcorn and Soda.

The 32nd Capital Region BOCES’ Spring Prom—the muchanticipated annual event started at the request of students in BOCES’ special education classes hoping for a celebration they could call their own—will be held on May 17, 2013 from 6:30 10:30 p.m. at the Albany Ramada Plaza, 3 Watervliet Avenue Ext., Albany, NY. The Spring Prom is a true example of BOCES organization-wide collaboration. A cache of gowns, suits and shoes — donated by staff and parents — are available to prom-goers at the Real World Fashion Store, run by students in the Career & Technical School’s (CTE) Vocational Training & Transition program. Corsages and boutonnieres are crafted by students in CTE’s Floral Design program. Dessert is baked by Culinary Arts students and up-dos and manicures are courtesy of Cosmetology students. A dedicated group of current and former Special Education and CTE staff ensure that the party comes off without a hitch. In addition, cash and in-kind donations from BOCES staff, students and local businesses make the event one that is accessible and affordable to all. Michelle Rosenberger, a BOCES Special Education alumna and one of the students whose suggestion helped start the prom tradition, said the prom is a way to mingle with current students, and reconnect with friends and teachers. “There’s really nothing else like it for these kids,” said Rosenberger, who is looking forward to attending this year’s prom—her thirty-second!—on May 17.

QUESTION: Sometimes I just can’t control all the stressful thoughts in my mind. Can meditation help? N. Nyman, Stephentown, NY ANSWER: The quick answer is yes. But first, imagine you are living two thousand years ago. You’ve just traveled a great distance to visit a friend who lives in the walled city of Jerusalem. As you approach the main Damascus Gate, you are met by a sentry who requires you to present your identity papers, announce the purpose and length of your stay, identify the individual you intend to visit, and prove that you have sufficient money for the return trip home. If you fail to fulfill any one of these requirements, you will not be allowed entry into the city and your journey will have been a painful waste. Every day a similar scenario takes place––at the main gate that leads into your mind. Did you know that your mind processes about 60,000 entry requests from thoughts every day? With 86,400 seconds in a 24 hour period, your mind will grant entry to a visiting thought every 1.2 seconds––and 95 percent of those thoughts will be the same ones you gave a free pass to yesterday. For most people, virtually any thought that seeks entry into the mind is instantly granted admission. First come stray observations about our immediate surroundings, then old memories and an expectation for the future, a melody from a favorite song, worries about money, physical sensations, petty jealousies, resentments and a craving for something to eat--– –all in less than a minute! Most of our thoughts don’t appear terribly harmful on the surface, but because many represent unconscious fears, anger and desires that conflict with our own inner wisdom, they eventually make it impossible for us to experience health, happiness and security. Without control over the mind, our habitual thoughts can sap our will, vitality and optimism, cause insomnia and even bring about serious physical ailments. But meditation changes our stress into strength by training the mind to skillfully deal with this enormous volume of mental traffic. With the tools of detachment, discrimination and will power learned in meditation, we can direct our thoughts as effectively as a New York City policeman directs automobile traffic through Times Square. Our health, happiness and security can be positively influenced by how skillfully we direct our thoughts. And once you practice meditation every day for just 5 minutes, this skill can become as easy and enjoyable as driving your car in the country on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. 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.
