LOCAL AP GRADUATE NEEDS SPONSORS FOR MISS NY USA PAGEANT

My name is Lauren Hagerty and I will be your local representative in the 2012 Donald Trump Miss New York USA pageant in November! I graduated from Averill Park High School in 2010 and currently attend the University of Connecticut as an Allied Health Major, hoping to become a plastic surgeon. I am involved in many things such as working at Tremont Ace Hardware in Averill Park, my sorority; Delta Zeta, and many volunteer activities like the program “Kids Marathon” to help curve childhood obesity. At this stage of preparation, I am looking for potential sponsors whether it be businesses, personal donations, or anything pageant related such as photography, hair styling, or the actual pageant gown itself. These sponsors will make participation in the pageant possible as well as a crucial part of my motivation; each will be featured in the official Miss New York USA program book as well as qualify for a tax deduction. If you would like to be a part of my journey and help me by becoming a sponsor, please email me at lauren8hagerty@aol.com, any donation is greatly appreciated!! Also, be sure to “Like” me on Facebook! www.facebook.com/LaurenHagertyforMissNY2012.

The County Officials and Services Directory includes useful information about federal, state and local government offices serving the county, contact information for elected officials, community organizations and civic groups. Annually, nearly 4,000 copies of the directory, which is viewed as the best and most comprehensive guide to the county, are sent out in the region or downloaded from the legislative website. “For anyone wanting to learn more about the many things that make Rensselaer County such a great place to live and work, the new 2011 Officials and Services Directory is an excellent place to start,” said Reid.

NO FEE FOR INITIAL CONSULTATION RESPONSE TO PATRICK STURN

Letter to the Editor: In Patrick Sturn’s recent letter, he made a statement that Donald Trump’s “ ...’Birther’ smear campaign blew up in his face…” Well it wasn’t Trump’s campaign. It isn’t a smear to ask a question, and it didn’t blow up in his face. But it’s easy to see how Patrick can think those things, because that’s how the mainstream media presented the issue. The campaign over Obama’s birthplace was started by a Democratic lawyer working for Hillary Clinton during the Democratic nomination process. That lawyer had a sworn affidavit from Obama’s Grandmother stating that she was there when Obama was born in Kenya. So when Obama’s supporters started claiming the “birther” controversy was another radical right-wing conspiracy, that sent up a red flag. Just creating the term “birther” also makes people wonder. Creating a derogatory term in order to demean people who simply ask for the truth is an old modus operandi of Democrats when they can’t use facts to address an issue. It hasn’t blown up in Trump’s face either. He succeeded in getting the President to do something he didn’t want to do. He gave people a chink in the armor and showed us how to proceed with other issues. Just hammer him on the issue until his poll numbers go down. Another statement in Patrick’s letter claims that people who read my letters think I am “…smugly pompous and selfserving…”. Certainly to people who don’t agree with me, but I hope to give strength and conviction to those who do. Liberals routinely demean their detractors such as people in the TEA Party movement by attacking their intelligence. But the truth is that a survey of members of the TEA party show them to be better educated than the average American. Suggesting that a MENSA plaque would be brought to a job interview also sheds light on Liberals’ regressive line of thinking. People with intelligence should be taking advantage of the opportunity that Capitalism offers by becoming employers, not employees. When our schools and the President focus their attention on creating jobs, they have already limited their success. We need to create businesses and you don’t do that by taxing and regulating them out of existence – something that should be innate to every intelligent, natural born American citizen. ~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.

REPORT

FROM LEGISLATORS MARTIN REID, ALEX SHANNON AND JUDITH BRESELOR As legislative representatives of District 4, including the towns of Schodack, Sand Lake and Nassau, we are happy to provide residents with an update on actions taken at the May 10, 2011 legislative meeting. Rensselaer County became one of the first municipalities in the country to approve a law restricting protests in the vicinity of military funerals. The law was suggested by the New York State Association of Counties following a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, which determined local governments can enact reasonable restrictions on protests. Prior to the vote on the local law, a letter in support of the law from the mother of Staff Sgt. Derek Farley was read. Derek was tragically killed while serving with the U.S. Army and heroically working to protect his fellow soldiers and civilians disarming bombs in Afghanistan. We also joined with members of the State Senate and State Assembly in calling for scheduling state gas tax holidays during the summer. The holidays would call for three holidays during the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day holidays, and temporarily suspend 33 cents per gallon in state excise taxes. Motorists on the average would save several dollars per fill-up. Legislators have been concerned about rising costs for special prosecutors in the county. At the May meeting, we did not approve nearly $100,000 for special prosecutors. We approved a resolution asking state lawmakers to enact reforms for special prosecutor’s fees, and to bring those fees more in line with public defenders. Special prosecutors are paid between $150 to $250 an hour, while public defenders are paid significantly less. We also joined with a number of state lawmakers in calling for the state to process tax returns in a more timely fashion. Legislators approved a series of resolutions related to ongoing work on Eastern Union Turnpike in Sand Lake. The Legis-

purrfect kitty of the month PLEASE ADOPT ME!

Lea is a medium-length-haired dark chocolate brown kitty with silky fur, about 3.5 years old. Her dark brown color is due to her being part Siamese. Shy at first, she is a sweet & petite kitty, well-behaved, with a gentle personality. She will play alone, with people, or other kitties, as she gets along well with other cats. She loves to be petted and purrs her thank-you’s in return. She will even roll over for tummy rubs! She truly would be a joy to have as a companion and she would love to have a chance at a “forever home” with a good person or family. Like all Purrfect Companion kitties, Lea is up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and neutered or spayed. For more information on Lea, please contact one of the following Purrfect Companions’ representatives: Jane, at 4367450 or Maryann at 331-2221 or at kitties.purrfect companions@yahoo.com. Purrfect Companions is a non-profit, all volunteer rescue organization. We are always looking for good volunteers to help with the kitties or assist at our adoption clinics. If you’d like to donate a little time to these worthy animals, please give us a call at 463-8709. Our adoption clinics are held 12:30-4:00 most Saturdays and Sundays at Petco, Northway Mall, Albany NY. Stop by and see some of our other kitties! We know we have one that is just “PURRFECT” for you!

LEGISLATORS JOIN CALLS FOR STATE GAS TAX HOLIDAY

Members of the Rensselaer County Legislature have joined calls for a gas tax holiday during periods of summer 2011 to help provide relief for motorists and businesses burdened by rising prices at the pump. Members of the State Senate and Assembly have proposed establishing temporary gas tax holidays during three periods of the summer, including the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day weekend holidays. The proposal calls for suspending state gas taxes during the period, with motorists saving an average of 33 cents per gallon. That would translate into several dollars per fill-up. “The gas tax holiday would be a good way for motorists and small businesses to get some much-needed relief from spiraling gasoline prices,” said Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid. Legislators said the gas tax holiday could also be a boost to tourism across the state during the summer season. “This could be an effective way to stimulate economic activity by taking dollars spent for taxes and putting them to work in the marketplace,” said Legislator Leon Fiacco. “A break at the pumps would be particularly welcomed by working families, seniors and small businesses. The tough effects of the recession are made worse by the high gas prices,” said Legislator Lester Goodermote. The resolution supporting the state gas tax holidays was approved at the May 10 legislative meeting. Copies of the resolution will be sent to state lawmakers representing Rensselaer County. Reid said that if successful, he would be interested in reviewing the county joining on the temporary gas tax holidays. However, the county tax on each gallon CHILD CARE of gasoline is significantly less Care Summer by approximately two-thirds. Community Program, 7/6 - 8/26, 7 am-6pm. Reid also said the county Serving 5 yrs & up. Field trips, suspension would require creative play, outdoors, hands on, approval from state nutritious snacks.

ARE YOU TROUBLED BY SOMEONE ELSE’S DRINKING? AL-ANON CAN HELP

Alcoholism is a worldwide issue causing problems not only for the drinker but for everyone connected with that person as well. Al-Anon Family Groups offer help and hope through free, weekly support meetings for family and friends of alcoholics. Members share their experience, strength, and hope in dealing with the frustrations and feelings of helplessness caused by a loved one’s problem drinking. People in Al-Anon use first names only, and confidentiality and anonymity are carefully protected. Newcomers are relieved to learn there is a place where they can share their troubles without being judged. Al-Anon members use the Twelve Steps adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous to face challenges and find spiritual support and recovery from the effects of the disease of alcoholism. They find solutions that lead to serenity and peace of mind, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen is a part of Al-Anon specifically for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. For more information about Al-Anon and Alateen in the Capital District, call 518-292-0577 or visit www.al-anon-8ny.org.
