The Poestenkill Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that The Friends of Poestenkill Library, as a group, have been selected as Upper Hudson Library System Volunteers of the Year. The many volunteers that make up the core of the Friends, and the many more Friends who help out at special events, provide invaluable service to the Poestenkill Library. The Spring and Fall Market Days, sponsored by the Friends and the annual Holiday Lights Appeal raise funds to contribute to the operation of the library and help make ends meet. Many hours of planning and hard work make these endeavors wonderful community events and play a key part in promoting the Poestenkill Library and its services. The Friends will be honored on June 8th at the 50th Annual Dinner Meeting of the Upper Hudson Library System. During the dinner cruise on the Captain J. P., there will be a presentation of this well-deserved award and an opportunity for the Friends to share some of the secrets to their success. The value of the Friends of Poestenkill Library cannot be measured just by the amount of money they raise. It is their enthusiasm and dedication to the Poestenkill Library that helps to make the library the success that it is.

SCCP GIVES PEOPLE A TASTE OF DISTRACTED DRIVING Kayleen Warner, Austin Percey, Bernie Daoust and S.C.C.P Youth Coordinator Jacqui Hill watch as Maple Hill Middle School students get an idea what it is like to drive while distracted. Schodack/Castleton Community Partnership Youth Leadership members, along with Jacqui Hill, Youth Coordinator and Susanne Aleterio, Program Coordinator, offered not only treats, but also a taste of the dangers of distracted driving at Maple Hill Middle School’s recent Dessert Night. “Distract-A-Match teaches people how multi-tasking while driving impairs your ability,” said Ms Hill. “Participants match colored shapes to a game board while counting backwards by 100 in 30 seconds.” As the activity becomes more challenging, participants’ success rate plummets, Ms Hill explained. “Participants counted slower and matched fewer shapes as distractions increased. It was a lot of fun and very beneficial.” S.C.C.P is a group of community members who work together to build a safe, respectful, and substance free environment and encourages tolerance and healthy character. The Youth Leadership Committee is a group of youth that works in partnership with the adult coalition. For more information, visit the S.C.C.P. website

These scholarships are awarded to one student in the county each year (as well as grades 9-10 and 68 further study scholarship), and are won through an audition process. Congrats to Steven Bell, Paige Bennedum (x2), Evie Boughton, Jessica Bowen, Glenn Carreau, Jeanna DiPaolo, Disa Griggs, Chris Hough Deane, Maddie Hoyt, Sara Lossi, Emma Mancino, Gabe McMahon, Sarah McTaugue, Padraic Morrissey, Nate Moss, Emily Oliver, Audrey Pitcher, Paige Raposa, Anna Scherer, Kelsey Sheldon, Julia Slyer (x2), and Caleb Thompson for successful performing at the 2011 New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Solo festival this last weekend.

This is in essence an audition for these students.

Serving Averill Park For Over 50 Years

In New York, the percentage of drivers and passengers observed not wearing their safety belts is 16 percent. But failure to regularly wear a safety belt can be deadly. According to NHTSA, 30,521 passenger vehicle occupants died in traffic crashes during 2006 - and 55 percent of those killed were not wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash. That’s why Schodack Police Department announced they are joining with more than 12,000 other State and local law enforcement and highway safety officials during late May for an aggressive national “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to crack down on New York’s safety belt law violations and to reduce highway fatalities. Safety belt checkpoints and other stepped-up law enforcement activities will be conducted during the national “Click-It or Ticket” enforcement mobilization, which runs May 23rd through June 5th, 2011. Unless you want to risk a ticket, or worse - your life, please remember to “Click-It or Ticket” day and night.

NOTHING SMART ABOUT LIBERALISM Letter to the Editor: I think I pushed some Liberals’ hot buttons when I recently questioned Barack Obama’s intelligence. How do you like it? Every Republican President or candidate with even a hint Conservative thought has had their intelligence ruthlessly attacked by Liberals. I think you guys ought to start getting used to it. Not only do I think Liberals “…know so much that just isn’t so” as Reagan so diplomatically put it, but I often question their sanity as well. Long before Michael Savage (with a PH.D. and 2 Masters Degrees) came out with his bestseller: “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder”, I began pondering that very idea myself. I think for many Liberals, such is the case. Einstein defined insanity as: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” How else could they be so wrong so often and then turn around and propose the same nonsolutions, decade after decade, generation after generation? But it would not be wise to suggest that all Liberal lawmakers are insane. I’m sure many know exactly what they are doing. How is it that the results of laws produced by Liberals end up being the opposite of their stated intentions? Many Conservatives are of the mind that the stated intentions are cover (lies) to obscure their true agenda. What about Liberal followers? Could they have been brainwashed in their youth? I think for some, the answer is also yes. There is ample evidence to draw a scientifically based conclusion that Liberal leaders target youthful voters for indoctrination because they are a clean slate without any knowledge of Liberalism’s (a.k.a. Socialism, Marxism, Progressivism et al) prior failures. That’s the reason they are so afraid of school choice. Then there are those eternally dependent Liberals who need to keep their providers in power. If Liberal solutions ever worked, these people would no longer be dependent, no longer need to vote for their old meal ticket and cease being Liberal. The big problem for Liberals today is that there is a new media out there that exposes the truth about them. It doesn’t matter that the old mainstream media ignores the glaring inconsistencies in the Liberal agenda because their credibility is steadily diminishing. Time is on our side – yes it is. ~David Crawmer, North Greenbush 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.

Our thanks also to: Mayor Harry Tutunjian, Judge Christopher Mair, Councilmen Mark McGrath and Ken Zalewski and Carmella Mantello. We would like to thank all who attended the fundraiser organized by Bob DeMeo, Nora Dywer and Susan Dywer which was held at Nichi’s Restaurant. Many people from the community came to support our family, along with many local restaurants, businesses, Churches, family and friends who contributed to the success of the fundraiser for us. We cannot begin to express what your donation and time means to our family. But more than the donation, our family greatly appreciated the thought behind the donation. There are no words to express how we feel. This time has been difficult for us, but knowing people like you eases the pain. Please know that we will not forget your kindness. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ~With kind regards, The Gratton Family - Ed, Danette, Ryan, Devon, Taylor Gratton and Grandma Jean

North Greenbush Historical Notes Jim Greenfield, Town Historian

NORTH GREENBUSH IN THE CIVIL WAR The headline may seem misleading. There was no “War in Wynantskill”, or Skirmish at Snyders Lake”, or “Defeat at Defreestville”. However North Greenbush did play a part in the War by supplying a large group of soldiers. The War began in 1861 and for the first two years, volunteers filled the ranks. By 1863 the need for manpower was so great that the first draft by the federal government was initiated. All men between the ages of 18 and 45 were eligible, but there were many exemptions: telegraph operators, railroad engineers, judges, and men with mental disabilities (this may have included some of the above). Physical disabilities included imperfect vision, lack of front teeth and loss of more than one finger on the right hand or more than two fingers of the left hand. The actual draft was the responsibility of the states who passed the quotas to the towns. If a draftee volunteered before the final muster, he was eligible to collect a bounty of $100 from the federal government, plus additional bounties from the state and local communities. Rensselaer County Board of Supervisors’ Journals report paying bounties of up to $500, which was about the average yearly wage in those days. The bounty system also made possible the enrichment of a large number of unscrupulous persons called “bounty jumpers.” These men would enlist to collect their bounty, then desert and enlist somewhere else and collect another bounty. Of course this wouldn’t have happened in North Greenbush. One of the most interesting rules of the draft is that a man could gain an exemption by paying a fee of up to $800 by hiring a substitute. This made it a “rich man’s war, but poor man’s fight.” Future President Grover Cleveland hired a substitute and although it was legal, it hurt him politically. North Greenbush records show members of the Hidley, Craver, Lape, Snyder, Defreest, Koon and Vandenburg families hiring replacements. Many of these substitutes were first generation immigrants who presumably needed the money. A final irony: according to North Greenbush records, there were 10 men who were credited with naval service. Perhaps they were preparing for a “Skirmish at Snyders Lake” if it ever would occur.

On Sunday, May 22, 2011, The Fifth Sunday in Easter, worship will center around “How Do We Get To Know Our God?” Jesus, according to the Gospel of John 14:1-14, reassures his anxious disciples who he is, telling them not only that “whoever has seen me has seen the Father” but also that they “will do greater works than these.” In addition, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will use 1 Peter 2.2-10 to point to how we are “God’s own people,” and how, in his likeness, he calls us to proclaim the mighty acts of him who called us “out of darkness into his marvelous light.” On May 22, the Nassau Reformed Church will hear the Scriptures referred to above. Those readings will be followed by Sunday School Graduation (Moving Up Day) and a Scripture Bee in which the Sunday School boys and girls will compete with the congregation on questions from the Scripture. Worship on this day will be followed by the Sunday School Picnic. Everyone is welcome to worship with us and witness the young boys and girls and their familiarity with Scripture.

On 7/24/2010, the GLPC voted 18 to 14 to close the access way. One board member cast 4 votes for closure. The Town Attorney sent a letter to the GLPC Board on 11/23/2010 substantiating the Town’s ownership of the access area based upon over 50 deeds, 2 surveyed maps. It is important that everyone understand that the Town is not taking anyone’s land, The Town already owns it and has since the 1840’s. On 5/11/2011 the Town Board voted unanimously to authorize the Supervisor to apply to the DEC for an Article 15 Permit to remove the cement and larger rocks the GLPC had placed in the area. The Town intends to bill the GLPC for the work. It is hoped that this action by the Board will result in the restoration of the public access way to the way it has been for over 150 years. We wish to thank the members of Town Board for responding to the concerns of the residents of the Town and assisting in the continuation of the traditional access way. It is hoped that the Board of the GLPC will agree to the restoration of the public access way. Concerned Citizens Seeking Access to Kayak, Canoe and Fish Glass Lake ~Ronald E.

B.L.C.C. IRENE BIELAWA MEMORIAL LADIES GOLF LEAGUE The following is a list of results from the BLCC Monday Night Ladies Golf League on Monday, May 2, 2011: 1st Low Score: 37 - Patti McArdle, MaryBeth Steinburg; 2nd Low Score: 37 Barb Hansen, Judy Goodyer, Betty Cushing and Peg Squazzo; 3rd Low Score: 38 - Jayne Piche, Margie Biggins, Cathie Olf and Margaret Surpitski; 1st Low Putts: 10 - Angie Fleming, Andrea Dockrell, Chris Helwig and Mary Beth Casey; 2nd Low Putts: 11 - Heather Morrison, Deb Jewell, Nancy Koskowski and Penny Semeiks; 3rd Low Putts: 11 - Kelly Hammond, Betty Ann Whitbeck, Linda Hastings and Dale Langford. A total of 40 women on 11 teams participated in this 3rd outing of the season.


As you can tell, summer is approaching and school is almost over which means spring sports are coming to an end. My senior year is ending, which means I have to continue with the tradition and pass the torch on to an upcoming senior. Your next AP Scholar Athlete Column Writer is a scholar athlete herself; our very own Megan Keeler. Megan plays varsity soccer and varsity lacrosse for Averill Park High School. “Being a scholar athlete is very important to me. I think it is important because it shows that I can juggle school and sports at the same time. It also gives me an opportunity to learn time management and team working skills in both school and sports. It is important to me, because I feel it is important to be a well-rounded person and have different things going on in your life to keep life interesting.” Next year will be Megan’s 3rd year on both varsity soccer and varsity lacrosse. Her favorite part of both sports is how close you get with your teammates at the end of the season; “you always say it won’t be like the year before, but a family is always formed no matter what.” Throughout high school, Megan has been able to withhold a 94 grade point average. Next year she will be taking: Calculus, Physics, Participation in Government, Economics, French 5, and an independent study in art and engineering. Megan currently plays defense for the lacrosse team and for the soccer team. Megan first started playing soccer in 1st grade. She says her parents signed her up for soccer to get rid of her extra energy. In 7th grade, Megan picked up lacrosse as another sport. She started because her dad told her that it would provide her with a better opportunity for college scholarships. Although Megan does not know where she wants to go next year, she does know that she wants to become an environmental engineer. “The environment is really important to me and I’m the typical ‘green freak’, so I feel that this field of study fits me the best.” Good luck to all the sports teams as the end of the year quickly approaches. Thank you to everyone who has been a dedicated reader this year. SENIORS 2011!!

L-R: Kelly Beliveau, Alex Fortin, Denaya Tremont, and Jess Flaherty. The Averill Park Girls Softball Warriors defeated Mohan 8-0 to cap a senior celebration. Meagan Hagerty slides between the legs of the Ballston Spa defender for a call of safe at second. AP lost the home game.

The May 10th game was a classic clash between rivals AP at Columbia. Pictured here is Kelly Donnelly tagging out the runner at 2nd base. AP went on to win the game 3-2 in 9 innings of play.

2011 ICE FISHING CONTEST The greatest snow storm in about 30 years here in the Northeast on February 5th, 2011 could not keep the ice fishermen, women and children from their quest to be among Bailey Mt. Fish and Game Club’s 27th annual ice fishing champions. Over 100 die-hard tip up chasers braved the harsh conditions = they came, they fished and they conquered! With their sleds, augers and shanties in tow, they pushed through the cold and dug through snow to get to the ice below. The weather that day was beautiful in the morning with sunshine and hardly any wind. But by the time the weigh ins were over, the rain and sleet started to fall. Many rushed home with their fish and winnings in hand to shovel two feet of wet snow and ice from their roofs. Many nice fish were turned in for the weigh-in and RCCA survey. The biggest fish in two categories were caught by John Herrington of East Greenbush. He was the Champion in the Northern Pike and Crappie categories. His northern pike weighed in at 5 lbs! His crappie (15" pie plate) weighed in at just under 2 lbs. Following him in Northern Pike was Jim Hennessey with a 2 lb. fish. Eaton Dodge took 2nd in the Crappie category with a nice fish (13 in.) that weighed in at 1.6 lbs and Eric Shanno turned in a nice fish that tipped the scale at 1.2 lbs. In the Perch category, the winner was John Gibson with a nice fish that weighed 1lb. John Pelletier took 2nd and 3rd place in the Perch category. In the Pickerel category was Jeff Pendergast with a fish that came in at 3.6 lbs. Scott Shanno took 2nd place with a 3.2 lb fish and Toby Goodall took third with a 2.4 lb fish. This year the local walleye fishermen stayed home and no fish were reported in this category. The trout class also did not make a showing this year. The Bass season is around the corner and don’t forget to take the kids fishing!!! Put a fishing pole in that kid’s hand and not an IPOD! Enjoy your summer, and see you next February!!! ~Ice Fishing Chairman, Mike Fil

GLASS LAKE RESIDENT APPALLED BY LETTER Letter to the Editor: I am appalled and upset that a few individuals sent a letter to the lakefront property owners on Glass Lake regarding Glass Lake preservation issues. The Glass Lake Association is a social get-together a couple times a year for families, friends and neighbors. The individuals chose to send this letter in time for our flag raising Memorial Day weekend. This is a time to honor our service men and women who are fighting for our country and freedom. Our country has seen hurricanes, tornadoes and floods; shouldn’t we be helping one another instead of causing disharmony against your neighbors and friends? You know who you are - SHAME ON YOU!! God Bless our troops at home and abroad and God Bless America. ~Jeanne P. Stinson, Veteran’s Widow and Member of GLA and Board Member of GLPC

NOVENA PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never known to fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to answer me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh, Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal, you who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine .This prayer must be published after the favor is granted D.A.J.

WOODLAND HILL MONTESSORI VIOLIN STUDENTS PERFORM at CARNEGIE HALL Ten Woodland Hill Montessori School violin students will be performing at Carnegie Hall for The School for Strings 40th Anniversary Festival Graduation Concert. The ten students range in age from 4th grade to 7th grade. The concert takes place on Friday, May 27th, at 2 p.m. There are 750 violinists and 175 cellists participating, and the concert is completely sold out. Marla Bracco has been teaching the Suzuki Violin method at Woodland Hill for the past five years. This is the first year that WHMS students have been invited to participate in the festival. Marla has been playing the violin since the age of six when she was introduced to the Suzuki method and its philosophies. Marla attended the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University and enrolled in the five-year BM/MM program in violin performance. The following students are participating: Sage Banta, Justin Bruck, Jora Cohen, Caroline Galt, Mairin Kelly, Isabella Mesko, Isabella Phayre-Gonzalez, Christopher Redmond, Aidan Singh, Christine Somerville

BOARD MAJORITY DISRUPTING TOWN COURTS Letter to the Editor: The North Greenbush Town Board Majority has been attempting to impose a candidate for a part- time Court Clerk on the Town Justices who is not their first choice for the sensitive position. At the May 12th Board meeting, Lou Desso led an effort to appoint a non-resident to the position despite the fact that the town justices have indicated the candidate will not be approved. They prefer a town resident for the position, and one is available, and has been sidelined because of the Boards effort to hire a young man whose connection to the Board Majority is Lou Cotrona’s “Personal Trainer” and masseur from Planet Fitness. Cotrona is a socalled “Legislative Assistant”. This majority has a long history of politicizing the town courts with their political friends and non-residents given jobs, while qualified town residents were ignored although available for hire, stated Ashley. They first illegally hired two non-resident attorneys, and then were forced to change the residency law so they could reappoint them over town residents last year. Ashley called on Desso, Spain and their majority to stop interfering with the operation of the town courts and to approved the choice of the town justices without delay. The court hours of operation have had to be reduced because of the personnel gap and fine collections and other paperwork is backlogged as well. North Greenbush Town Court should not become a dumping ground for politically connected people who do not live or pay taxes here. The only time we should hire non-residents for town positions is when a qualified town resident is unavailable for a position. Now we find the operations of the courts are being impeded because a Board operative, Lou Cotrona, wants them to hire his personal trainer instead of a qualified town resident and choice of the judges, stated Ashley. Lou’s health and fitness may be a walk down the hall if approved, but North Greenbush deserves better, much better. ~Dan Ashley, Troy 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.

STORMWATER UPDATE (The MS4 Program) In 1972, Congress passed the Clean Water Act to “restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters.” In the 1970s, sewage treatment plants were constructed to collect sewage and pollution from homes and factories. Direct discharges of polluted waters were ceased and the water quality increased dramatically. Although water quality improved – rivers were no longer catching fire and now had fish in them – water quality was still not at the levels found pre-development. Silt and smaller amounts of chemicals and bacteria are still found in the Nation’s waters. Since the low hanging polluters were taken care of, amendments to the Clean Water Act required that smaller polluters, including pipes running from ditches, catch basins, storm sewers and drains be permitted, and flow clean water into water bodies, creating the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Program. This program includes requirements to improve water quality from community storm pipes. The program includes six minimum measures: Community Education, Community Outreach, Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination, Construction Site Stormwater Runoff and Control, Post Construction Stormwater Management, and Pollution Prevention for Municipal Operations. We will discuss these minimum measures in future articles. ~The Rensselaer County MS4 Communities
