Letter to the Editor: When I See Don Johnson’s name attached to a letter I wonder, “How much misinformation is he spreading now?” In the case of his latest rabid rant the answer is, quite a bit. He claims, “E.G Town Board Betrays Our Trust With Casino Resolution” (Advertiser 5-21-14) because resolution 65-2014 was added at the last minute. Unlike Don, I applaud the Board for moving quickly and decisively to make sure that the town did not miss out on this opportunity. Don claims the public had no opportunity to address the casino question, but last night the residents did get the chance to speak at the Town Board meeting and they did. They will get another opportunity when the Town Board meets to vote on a site specific resolution. To be fair, I’m sure Don did not know that these opportunities would be there. That’s the difference between the rest of us and Don- we educate ourselves on the process and don’t go off half-cocked when something we disagree with is presented. In his over-the-top letter, he likens the current majority and Board to parasites and intimates that they are looking for cover. He states that the Board should be ashamed of themselves and resign if they don’t “fix their error” and rescind their vote. Why? Because the all-knowing Don Johnson has decreed it to be so. Instead of providing false fodder for his blog, he should take a breath and take some time to learn what he is talking about. ~ Ed Gilbert, Deputy Supervisor, Town of East 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.

JIMINO ANNOUNCES 2013 COUNTY AUDIT RESULTS Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino recently reported the results of the County’s 2013 independent audit conducted by Drescher and Malecki LLP who once again found no material weaknesses in internal controls or accounting practices. Drescher and Malecki LLP also noted that the county had taken positive steps to further enhance its internal controls and best practices. Drescher and Malecki LLP pointed to the continued improvement of the County’s fiscal position even in the tough financial times. Through strict cost controls and sound management practices, the County once again grew its unassigned fund balance (rainy day fund) by $780,000 to $11.9 million. This increase in fund balance is in spite of the additional pressures of minimal growth in the sales tax collection and reduced revenue from boarding inmates from other counties. While the growth in the fund balance is good news, it still only accounts for approximately 5% of the County’s operational costs, still short of the New York State Comptroller’s recommendation of between 10 and 15 %. “This audit is further proof that the decisions we make day in and day out to provide the services our residents depend on as economically and efficiently as possible are keeping the county on sound fiscal ground. This audit further demonstrates my administration’s responsibility to prudently managing the County’s finances and ensuring that the tax dollars our residents entrust to us are being soundly managed,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino. The audit is on the heels of Standard and Poors raising the County’s bond rating to AA and stating, “We view the County’s management conditions as strong with good financial practices”. According to Standard and Poor’s, any entity achieving an “AA” rating means they have a “Very strong capacity to meet financial commitments”. Standard and Poors also noted that the “County’s budgetary performance has been strong overall, in our view with a surplus of .05% for the general fund in 2012.”

Averill Park Central School District is pleased to announce that The Character Education Partnership (CEP), a national advocate and leader for the character education movement, named West Sand Lake Elementary School a 2014 National Schools of Character (NSOC). The NSOC program recognizes West Sand Lake Elementary as a school that has demonstrated its use of character development to drive a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and the school’s climate. The National Schools of Character program is not a competition— but rather an opportunity to go through a rigorous process of feedback and coaching, as well as recognition for growth and excellence in the area of character development through CEP’s 11 Principles of Effective Character Education framework. West Sand Lake Elementary School will hold its designation for five years. CEP will showcase West Sand Lake Elementary in an annual publication and on its website. West Sand Lake Elementary has also earned the right to use the NSOC name and logo. Since its inception, CEP has awarded over 250 schools with the distinction of a National School of Character. In 2014, along with West Sand Lake Elementary School, 40 additional schools and 3 districts were named across the United States. “Character education is a large part of our student’s daily lives,” said Laura Kyer, Principal at West Sand Lake Elementary. “We are grateful for CEP and its efforts to create a national discussion on the importance of character in education. We are eager to carry this distinction for years to come and are hopeful our example will lead other schools in New York state to participate in this process in order to enhance student’s lives statewide.” CEP will honor West Sand Lake Elementary at the 20th National Forum on Character Education, to be held the weekend of October 30, 2014 in Washington, DC. Visit to learn more about the National Forum, the NSOC program and the 2014 national finalists.

I’ve always thought that the biggest influence on the life of early settlers here was religion. However, I think that the second biggest influence was taverns. Now, I’m not saying the early settlers of Defreestville and Wynantskill drank a lot. Well, actually, the men probably did. Winters were harsh and long in those days and a local tavern made the seasons a little more bearable. These were places where business could be transacted and politics discussed. Men could gamble and gossip over hearty food and a tankard of ale. Defreestville probably had the first tavern. David Defreest had an establishment there just after the Revolution. In fact, the Defreestville Hotel, as it was called, lasted into the 20th century before the building burned in 1945. One reason this hotel/tavern thrived was its location. Think of it. In the 18th19th century, travelers average speed might have been four miles per hour. Farmers, “coalers” (charcoal distributors) and others traveled long distances from the eastern part of the county to Albany to bring their goods to market. A place like the Defreestville establishment was a good stopping off place both coming to and returning from market. It would be interesting if we had statistics on how much more ale was sold on the return trip compared to going to market. Although not precisely in Defreestville, there was Charles Ostrander’s tavern, up Route 43 near where Dell’s Garage is now. This was nicknamed “the slaughter house” because of the many “personal affrays” or fights which took place there. Wynantskill had two early tavern/hotels that we know something about. Henry Kinney, who settled there in the late 1700’s had one. George Casey ran the establishment in the 1880’s and we can place Casey’s where the brick EMS building on the corner of Church and Main is today. The other tavern/ hotel we can identify was run by Henry Frazee in the early 1800’s. This ultimately became Frank Houser’s store on Main Avenue. What killed the taverns/hotels? Transportation for one thing; you could drive home from the markets in Troy and Albany and not have to stop for overnighting. Prohibition was another thing. Frank Houser took over a hotel but when Prohibition came along, he turned the establishment into a general store.

LACK OF RESPECT SHOWN at E.G. CASINO MEETING Letter to the Editor: I attended the monthly Town Board Meeting on Wednesday, May 21st. Many town residents came out to speak to the Board about their position on the possible casino. Many strong points were made on both sides of the issue, and for some, emotions ran high. Although it was good to see so many people come out and show an interest in our town, at the same time, I have to say that as a father of 5 children, I was very disappointed at the sheer lack of respect shown by the CasiNO group. They instantly booed, interrupted, yelled and jeered at anyone who did not agree with their position. The worst display I witnessed was the way a 16 year old Columbia High School girl was treated. Having a 17 year old myself, I was appalled as she was laughed at and booed when voicing her pro- casino stance. It takes any person a lot of courage to speak in front of hundreds of people, and for this girl, she was barely given the opportunity. As adults, we should be role models on how to have respect for other people and their opinions. This group of people stood and spoke about morals and what is best for the children of our community, but yet displayed character that was in complete contradiction to this. I would like to thank this young lady for having the courage to speak and would encourage more to do the same. I would also like to thank the groups of undecided residents and pro casino people for listening with respect to all opinions. The Town Board is scheduling a public hearing and I hope that anyone, student or adult, who speaks will be treated with the same respect that they would expect themselves. To get respect; you need to give respect. ~ Sincerely, Charles Lansing, EG Town Resident 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.

by Riley Ludwig Averill Park teams have entered their respective sectional tournaments and are doing great so far! The two track teams had fantastic showings at sectionals, which took place on Wednesday, 5/21, at University at Albany. I’ll begin with the ladies! The Lady Warriors took second in the 4x800m event. Averill Park was represented by senior Michaela Omecinsky, juniors Alexis Reed and Brittney Mack, and freshman Payton Bielawski. Senior Amanda Harrington placed sixth in both the 200m and pole vault events. Junior Kelsey Ernest placed third in the discus event. Nice job, ladies! On the men’s side, the Warriors took first place in the 4x800m event! The team of seniors Wes Clayton and Jarred Austin, as well as sophomores Jeremy Carter and Lukas Morgan competed in this event. The girls’ team placed seventh overall, while the men’s team placed eighth. Jeremy Carter also took second place in the 3200m event, with a time of 9:59.58. Wes Clayton, Jarred Austin, junior Matt Lanoue, and Lukas Morgan placed third in the 4x400m. Overall, the ladies placed seventh, and the guys placed eighth. Congrats everyone! State qualifiers take place on Thursday, 5/29, and Friday, 5/30. Qualifiers will take place at SUNY Albany. Athletes who qualify will move onto the state championships, which take place Friday, 6/6, and Saturday, 6/7. Good luck! The baseball team pulled a huge upset in their first sectionals appearances. Entering the tournament as the eighth seed, they played the number one seed Queensbury at home (due to weather conditions) on Friday, 5/23. Senior Tyler Childrose led the Warriors from the mound. A home run from senior Ben Reinisch and unyielding effort from the team resulted in a 5-2 win for the Warriors! The baseball team advanced to the semifinal round. They faced Amsterdam at The College of Saint Rose on Saturday, 5/24. I will have the results from this matchup in the next column! The softball team also was successful in their first sectionals game. The Lady Warriors received the number two seed spot. They faced the seventh seed Glens Falls at home on Friday, 5/ 23. The ladies pulled off a 6-0 win against Glens Falls and advanced to the semifinal round. They faced the winner of the South Glens Falls/Burnt Hills match-up. The game took place on Wednesday, 5/28. Unified Sports played two games last week. They traveled to and defeated Saratoga on Monday, 5/19. The team traveled to Ballston Spa on Thursday, 5/22, but lost to Ballston Spa, which is their first loss of the season. Nice job, team! Feel free to email me at As always, go Warriors!

Nathan Glanton started playing tennis competitively his freshman year of high school, but had played casually since elementary school. He first became interested for trying out for the team when his good friend, Jake Pagoda, convinced him to give it a go. Now, Nate plays third singles and it is his third year playing varsity tennis. He prepares for games by practicing until 5:30 every day after school and preparing in the off season. Nate runs track in off season and is always at the tennis courts with his friends or coaches. Along with tennis, Nate also plays soccer and indoor track. In Nate’s free time, he enjoys fishing, swimming, skiing, and hanging out with friends. Nate also lifeguards in the summer, and is a proud eagle scout! Nate’s parents have always been there for him, and for that reason they have inspired him to be the person he is today. For Nate’s senior year, he is taking Advanced Placement Macroeconomics, Engineering Design and Development, Engineering Applications, Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature, Cinema and Literature, Health, Participation in Government and Economics; and also took courses at Hudson Valley, Calculus 2, English 101 and Intro to Sports Management. After high school, Nate plans on attending St. John’s University in the fall to major in Finance. He hopes to continue playing soccer, and tennis intramurally. When I asked Nate what being scholar athlete means to him he said, “Being scholar athlete means exceeding standards both on the court and in the classroom.” Congratulations on excelling during your high school years, Nate; we wish you the best of luck with all of your future plans! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

Making the decision to harvest timber on your property can be challenging. It’s a decision that will impact your woods and how your family will use it for many years. It’s often difficult to know where to start or who to talk to. If you’ve been thinking about a timber cut, but would like more information before moving forward, then sign up for a workshop presented by a Master Forest Owner (MFO) on Saturday, May 31st, at 9:30 a.m. at the Pineridge Cross Country Ski Area on Plank Rd. (Co Rt. 40) in East Poestenkill. A MFO is a volunteer who has attended extensive training by Cornell Cooperative Extension and shares that expertise with the community. MFO Walter Kersch will introduce landowners to proven management practices for their forests; will help landowners understand the role of a forester and what to do when approached by a logger or timber salesman. The program is presented by the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance and co-sponsored by the Capital District New York Forest Owner Association with a $10 per person fee to cover costs. Refreshments will be served. Please wear clothing and boots suitable for walking in the woods and don’t forget your insect repellent! To register for the workshop, please visit: http:// To learn more about the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance, visit:

BRAINARD CEMETERY RESTORATION NEARING COMPLETION The Church of the Redeemer Thrift Shop (1249 Third Street, Rensselaer, at the corner of Third and Catherine Streets) will be open on Thursdays from 3PM to 6PM; and on Saturday, May 31st, from 9AM to 2PM.

The shop features clothing for all sizes and ages (many name brands, very reasonable prices), books, toys, games, housewares, glasses, dishes, furniture and many one-of-akind items.

The Town of Nassau’s effort to reclaim an abandoned burial ground where veterans of several wars are interred is nearing completion. Brainard Rural Cemetery is located on Route 20 in the hamlet of Brainard. The cemetery is estimated to contain approximately 300 burials including early residents of the community and graves of veterans of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The restoration of this small but historic burial ground has sparked tremendous interest from the community and has engaged our residents in the history of the town of Nassau. The Town is thankful to the many residents that contributed funds for this project and to the State Cemetery Board which approved nearly $30,000 for restoration efforts. Because of community support, Nassau is able to suitably honor our early settlers and veterans of several wars. Residents also contributed funds to erect a historic marker at the site and to restore some of the gravestones. State funds paid for the removal of many dangerous trees, a survey of the cemetery and the quality fencing and gates that now encircle the burial ground. State funds also ensured the restoration of nearly sixty (60) damaged and dangerous monuments.

LOCAL ORGANIZATION ESTABLISHED to RAISE FUNDS for MS RESEARCH A local teen with multiple sclerosis (MS) has inspired the formation of a New York Chapter of Moms Against MS. The group will hold its first event next month to raise funds for the National MS Society’s upstate New York Chapter. The New York chapter of Moms Against MS was founded by Tracey Wardwell, a Greenwich resident whose daughter Carrissa, now 13, was diagnosed with MS at the age of 12. Carrissa is a 7th grader at Greenwich Central School. In multiple sclerosis, damage to the myelin sheath (protective covering around a neuron), in the central nervous system and to the nerve fibers themselves, interferes with the transmission of messages or nerve signals between the brain and spinal cord and other parts of the body. “When my daughter Carrissa was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis on February 11, 2013, our lives were forever changed,” Wardwell said. “We had so many questions about what the future held for Carrissa, our family and what was next: Would Carrissa continue to get lesions on her brain? If she did, would she have another ‘episode’ and would the episode leave her paralyzed? Would she lose her eye sight?” Carrissa’s first episode took place on Mother’s Day weekend in 2012, but she was not diagnosed until nearly a year later. Diagnosis in children is more difficult than in adults because of the frequency of other childhood disorders with similar symptoms and characteristics. In addition, pediatricians may not be familiar with MS because they are not expecting to see it in children. Wardwell, a branch manager for Key Bank, formed the New York chapter of Moms Against MS to enhance awareness of pediatric MS and to raise funds for MS research and patient and caregiver support. Her group will hold a mother-daughter brunch and fashion show on Sunday June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn on Hoosick Street in Troy. Those interested in attending or supporting the event should visit

“…He ascended into Heaven.” So the whole Christian Church confesses from ancient time. Jesus Christ returned to His home in heaven, to prepare a place for us, to sit at the right hand of God the Father. This almost sounds like the end of the story, letting us down gently after all the excitement surrounding Christmas and Easter. However, Christ’s bodily ascension into Heaven is vitally important in assuring us His presence in our day-to-day stresses, of His forgiveness of all our sins, and of being with Him for eternity. Come listen as Pastor Henry tackles this subject in a sermon entitled, “And He Ascended into Heaven,” based on Luke 24: 44-53. Join us this week, and every week at 10:00AM. Love Lutheran Church is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush. Please go to our new website – http://www. for more info./directions, or call 477-8685.
