FIRST RESPONDER SERVICES NOT ABLE to MEET DEMANDS of CASINO COMPLEX Letter to the Editor: I want to address one of the unintended and unexamined consequences of placing a casino complex in an East Greenbush suburban neighborhood. Suburban areas in Rensselaer County are served by volunteer first responder services augmented by paid licensed medical technicians; they respond to medical emergencies and traffic accidents. The system is supported by fire department taxing districts, contracted payments from the towns and insurance companies when coverage is available; in other words by the local taxpayer. Conservatively traffic would increase by 1000 cars daily at the Casino complex; this is likely a very low estimate because there is no public transportation serving that location. Inevitably that will result in more traffic accidents and medical emergencies each day, especially at night. The existing first responder system cannot simply absorb that increase. The patrons and employees of the casino will not add to the volunteer corps, and eventually the demand will mean more paid first responder positions. Who will pay for this? Not the State. This demand will impact neighboring towns as well, because some services are shared, such as advanced life support technicians. And, for example, Town of Schodack taxpayers will be directly impacted because emergency response obligations are defined geographically. Schodack town fire departments and Castleton Ambulance respond to accidents on I-90 between exit 10 and 12. If 500 more cars come each day from the Mass Pike to the Casino, inevitably there will be a demand for Schodack first responder services. I don’t believe that the Town of Schodack taxpayers were mentioned in the well rehearsed and ultimately non-responsive presentation of the Casino sponsors. What recourse do we have? ~ Carolyn Stetson, Castleton 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.

UPDATE FROM THE VILLAGE OF NASSAU BOARD OF TRUSTEES - APRIL/MAY 2014 The Board wishes to thank the individuals who have responded to the Masterplan survey to date. The survey will remain open through the end of the summer. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to take the time to complete one. A link can be found on the Village website. A paper copy of the survey can be obtained at Village Hall. At the regular monthly meeting in April, the Board passed a law increasing the fines for unpermitted parking in handicap spaces in the Village. The fine for a first offense is not less than $100 and up to $150. The fine for a subsequent offense within two years is not less than $150 and up to $250. The project to install a propane-fired generator to run the Village’s water system in the event of a prolonged power outage, up to a week, if necessary, has been completed. Officers Alexander Restifo and Nicholas Monuteaux graduated from the Zone 14 Police Academy on April 11, 2014. The pair will complete state-mandated field training with the certified fieldtraining officers in the Nassau Police Department. The Board congratulates the officers and wishes them well as they begin their law enforcement careers. At its regular monthly meeting in May, the Board voted to approve the site plan proposed by Cumberland Farms to redevelop the existing property at the corner of Rt 20 and Rt 203. The redevelopment project will replace the existing building, pump island, fuel storage tanks, and septic system, as well as make improvements to the stormwater drainage system and traffic flow on the property. The site plan review process began in December 2013 and relied on the volunteer efforts of the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals. The original plan proposed for the site was amended in order to better conform to the land use regulations within and community character of the Village as well as address the concerns of adjacent property owners. Construction will begin later this year. The Village will make a number of much needed renovations at the Ben Stanley Park at the corner of Malden and Kaunemeek Streets. Several new apparatus have been purchased by the Village, and a generous donation of equipment has been made by the Tillman family. Work at the park will commence in the near future. ~ Submitted by the Village of Nassau Board of Trustees

THE GRINCH MAY BRING A MONEY TREE Letter to the Editor: The casino is coming!!! HURRAH, HURRAH!!! The casino is coming. We will not need a Santa Claus anymore. Lower taxes and a land of OZ. Town and county governments can continue their spending spree because the casino will bail them out. EVERYBODY WINS. How is that possible you ask? If you believe the hype the promoters are dishing out, you have to conclude there will be a money tree in the casino and all they have to do is shake it whenever they need to keep their promises. Promises we have heard before. Such as: A complex wanting to come into town stated their taxes would buy Schodack 2 dump trucks, three school buses and more each year. They did not mention their property tax break and no sales tax on building materials for their millions of dollars complex. It has been several years now and my taxes have kept climbing. Then the complex wanted their property taxes reduced and won in court costing the town and school district hundreds of thousand of dollars. Beware and forewarned. The Grinch is really going to steal Christmas for many who think the nice guys are going to let them win and live happily ever after. There will be families who will not have much if any Christmas. In fact, their kids will not get their new shoes when needed and many times will end up with pork and beans out of a can. Oh! I forgot, there is always the food stamps in the form of a credit card? Do you think there will be an ATM machine in the casino? Well there goes that months rent and food money. Do you think desperation brings on divorce, thievery, crime, murder or suicide? A casino will add corruption to our society. Don’t we have enough already? Wake up all you who know better. Call/write your town council persons no mater what town you live in. Do it soon. This blight will affect at least a 50 mile radius. ~ Ray Lemka, Schodack 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.

SCHODACK TOWN BOARD KEEPS TOWN LOCKED IN AN IMAGINARY PAST Letter to the Editor: Once again, a handful of people, representing a minority of Schodack residents, voted to remain in the early 20th century rather than bring Schodack into the late 1900s, let alone the 2000s. I refer to the proposed “Town Center” on Columbia Turnpike in Schodack. Unlike most projects that come before the town, this one showed a great deal of thought, planning, and a real vision for the future. Those who are cemented in the past spent more time wringing their hands over the mere thought of “change” rather than trying to inform the public about the project and find out how the majority of residents felt about it. So the plan was scuttled as town officials caved to pressure from the same, tight group of their family, friends and funders who believed scary lies about turn lanes and ignored data-derived recommendations by state Department of Transportation experts. It is sad that some are willing to sacrifice the future of our town to hold onto a past that hasn’t really been that good. Our taxes have continued to go up, our school programs are getting slashed for lack of a commercial tax base, our families still don’t have the kinds of services that other towns have, and development is haphazard and puts the town at the mercy of the developer. I am astonished that town “leaders” who were so against the Town Center plan are the very same people who mocked residents who opposed a massive warehouse in their backyards. Destroying a neighborhood in the name of commercial development is GOOD but beautifying the town and creating a safer traffic pattern that will encourage people to shop at local businesses is BAD? I don’t get it. Setting aside the project as a whole, the “traffic calming” plan did nothing but change how the road is striped. If two travel lanes, a turning lane and wide shoulders didn’t work out, the road could have been turned back into a four lanes road by restriping it. But true to form, our elected “leaders” couldn’t risk having the project succeed, so they wouldn’t even try it. Once again, the rest of us need to question who benefits from the town’s actions. Unless you are one of the few profitably connected to the right people, it is not you, Mr. and Ms. Average Schodack resident. ~ Linda Underwood, Castleton 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.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT for AP SCHOOL BUDGET 2014-15 APPRECIATED Letter to the Editor: On behalf of the entire Board of Education, I would like to thank the community for their support of the Averill Park School Budget for 2014-2015. Also, congratulations to Jennie Glasser and Dori Salisbury on their re-election to a three-year term on the School Board. Receiving 74% positive response for our budget, as well as 68% positive response for our transportation purchase is very important to us all, as we desire the support of the community in our efforts. However, the passage of the budget means that our efforts are just beginning. This summer, we will begin the work on the construction project that was approved by voters last year, in May 2013. Renovations to the HS Auditorium, upgrades in technology infrastructure, and maintenance projects to all of our buildings will be ongoing from now through August, 2016. Another important topic for the Board to address in the coming year is the Veteran’s exemption on school taxes. This is a challenge that school boards across the state will be facing, and AP is no exception. In our exit survey on May 20, we asked voters their opinions on that and other topics. The results of that question as well as the other questions on the survey are available on our district website, in the “Budget Corner” section. Please continue to make us aware of any issues on which you have a concern. We take your suggestions very seriously. Thank you again for your support of our efforts with the children of our community. ~ Sincerely, Jim Hoffman, Superintendent of Schools

LOCAL TEENAGE ARTIST SELECTED FOR CITY OF ALBANY STREET PIANO EXHIBIT Heidi Schuman and Michael Lewandowski with the bench that will go along with the piano designed by Heidi This summer the City of Albany will be sponsoring a street art exhibit that will be placing upright pianos on sidewalks in front of important buildings and busy intersections. These pianos will be available for anyone to take a moment and play a song. Each of these pianos has been painted by a local artist. Algonquin Middle School is very proud of Heidi Schuman, a Grade 8 student, who was selected as an artist to paint one of these pianos. Heidi is one of only 13 local artists chosen for this very cool exhibit, and is the only teenage artist who was selected! Heidi says she can’t take all of the credit, because she truly appreciates all of the support and guidance she has received from Mr. Lewandowski. Congratulations, Heidi, on this amazing accomplishment!

As legislative representatives of District 2, including the towns of East Greenbush, North Greenbush and Poestenkill, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the May 13, 2014 legislative meeting. Rensselaer County and the Legislature have worked hard to maintain a solid financial footing for the county despite a difficult recession and huge costs for unfunded state and federal mandates. Earlier this spring, we reported on the upgrade of the county’s already strong bond rating to an AA level. That upgrade follows a series of positive audits and reviews of county finances. The county’s solid financial position helps encourage investment and new job creation in the county. It also generated a savings, as the county was able to use our strong financial ratings to obtain a favorable refinancing of the Van Rensselaer Manor nursing home. The Manor is considered one of the top senior care facilities in the Northeast, and we are happy to be able to generate a savings through the refinancing. The audits and reviews have noted the work by County Executive Jimino and her staff.

During the summer, we celebrate both labor and leisure. We can reflect about the importance and value of work and play time in our lives. Work, whether paid or voluntary, is an important part of our life. I find that most people of working age are happier when they are working. People who are unemployed often feel uncomfortable, even guilty, and miss the value of working.Of course, many people out of work miss the income too. The lack of work often leads to boredom or unhappiness. Most people I know who are retired and happy still find ways to be constructive and busy with activities. I enjoy working and often my leisure activities are similar to my work activities. If one’s work is satisfying and productive it often becomes a form of renewal and rejuvenation. However, if one works in a job which does not satisfy and wears one down, then recreation and leisure activities are necessary for a balanced and healthy life. The summer time is important for many of us because it is a time for recreation and leisure. We are fortunate. There are many people in the world who have no voluntary choice to have time for vacation or recreation. Their lot is to work from sunrise to sundown for their basic needs of food, shelter and clothing. We can be thankful that we have the opportunities to recreate our spirit. Your faith can help you develop your leisure time for good and to have meaning in your labor. I would hope that you use your leisure time well. Giving one hour a week for worship and one hour a day for prayer and mediation are two ways of using your leisure time. I hope you can give hours each week to provide work or voluntary service to do God’s work in the world, in employment, family or recreational activities. All of your hours can be devoted to God in one way or another. Year round, we are grateful for all those who labor. Think about your own work, about the tasks that you perform, whether you are employed or retired, paid or volunteer, and offer your work as your gifts to God. Think about how you use your leisure hours and offer these activities as gifts to God. Enjoy this summer, remembering the importance of work and play that all be given to the glory of God.

by Riley Ludwig For the third time this school year, Averill Park is home to Section 2 champions! The Averill Park baseball team won the program’s first sectional title on Friday, 5/30, at Joe Bruno Stadium. The Warriors, who entered the sectional tournament as the eighth seed, played against the seventh seed, Burnt Hills. Defensively, the Warriors were led by senior pitcher Tyler Childrose. Childrose pitched a complete game that included twelve strikeouts. Offensively, seniors Ben Reinisch and Max Tessitore hit an RBI each to put the Warriors on top. The championship resulted in a 2-1 win for the Warriors. The Section 2 Class A champions advance to regionals. They play at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse this Friday, 6/6, at 5pm, against Jamesville-DeWitt of Section 3. Congratulations and good luck to the team! The Lady Warriors of softball won in the semifinal round of sectionals on Wednesday, 5/28. They faced South Glens Falls, who has eliminated Averill Park in their last four consecutive playoff appearances. The Warriors defeated the Bulldogs, 51. Senior pitcher Brittany Meka led the Warriors defensively, pitching a complete game. Junior Torey Chenette hit an RBI double for the Warriors. The ladies advanced to the Class A finals, which was played on Saturday, 5/31, against Troy. The two teams played neck and neck the entire game, but the Warriors would ultimately fall short to the Flying Horses. Brittany Meka owned the mound again for the Warriors, accumulating eight strikeouts throughout the game, and only allowing five hits. Senior Mackenzie Nitz also doubled in this game. The 2-0 loss ended another spectacular season for the Lady Warriors. Good luck to the graduating seniors with wherever the future takes them!

Devin VanDervoort has been playing baseball for twelve years now, and first became interested in the sport when Devin’s dad encouraged him to play at a very young age. He was working with him before he was even old enough to play tee ball. Now, playing for the Averill Park varsity baseball team, Devin mainly pitches, plays outfield, and is the designated hitter. Devin and the team practice every day after school and all of the hard work has surely paid off. For the first time in Averill Park history, the varsity baseball team brought home the Section 2 Title; the boys hope to keep the great season going. Devin would like to thank his coaches, Kahler and Duff, for making it the best season he has ever had, and for always encouraging him to do his best at all times. “Another huge thank you goes out to every single one of my teammates. They are truly my best friends and brothers, and I have never had more fun with any group of guys. This is by far the best team I have ever been apart of. We are all very proud to bring the Section 2 Title to Averill Park for the first time. Let’s hope we can go farther, and keep getting some more wins!” Devin says. When Devin is not playing baseball, he is normally playing the drums and guitar or listening to music. “My parents have shaped me into the person I am today and I wouldn’t be anywhere without them,” Devin says. For Devin’s senior year, he is taking Physics, Advanced Placement Biology, Pre Calculus, Cinema and Literature, Philosophical Literature, Economics, and Participation in Government. Also, Devin is a member of the National Honor Society and has a 91 GPA. After high school, Devin will be attending Lyndon State College in Vermont in the fall. There, he will be majoring in Music Business and Industry, and he hopes to make a career in this field. When I asked Devin what being a scholar athlete means to him, he responded, “Being a scholar athlete is a huge honor for me. It means that all of my hard work in school and sports has paid off. It is very fulfilling.” Congratulations on a successful high school career, Devin, and the best of luck to you at Lyndon State next fall and with all of your future endeavors! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

THE $250,000,000 - $300,000,000 ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM Letter to the Editor: Saratoga Gaming and Racing has released estimates of the financial impact of its proposed East Greenbush Casino, which sets the total impact at $27,547,844 (I’ve verified by my own independent analysis the County, Town, School, Highway, Bruen and Library estimates using 2014 valuation and tax rate data obtained from the East Greenbush Assessor and the Casino’s estimated $250,000,000 valuation): $9,347,844 in Estimated Annual Real Property Tax Payments; $11,400,000 in Host Community Annual Share of Gaming Revenues; $800,000 in Estimated Annual Sales Tax Generated; and $6,000,000 in Estimated One-Time GEIS Fee. Town-wide East Greenbush-levied taxes are estimated to total $1,093,656: $694,878 in Town of East Greenbush Tax; and $398,778 in Town of East Greenbush, Highway Tax. These are annual revenues that could be used with the Town’s portions of the estimated annual Host Community Share of Gaming Revenues ($5.7 million) and Sales Tax ($800,000), as well as portions of the one-time $6,000,000 GEIS Fee, to: • Fix the Town’s financial problems; • Reduce the property tax burden on East Greenbush taxpayers; • Incentivize responsible business development along Columbia Turnpike; • Make the 2012 East Greenbush Amenities Plan (improving the Town’s Parks) a reality; and • Make the 2011 Albany-Hudson Electric Trail (hiking/biking path linking Albany and Hudson) a reality. It would be a “no-brainer” if the decision was just about the money. But it’s not. The Town Board must also consider the many valid concerns expressed at Columbia High on May 19th and the May 21st Town Board Meeting, and expected at the June 4th Public Hearing, including the potential for: • Decreased property values and quality of life; • Increased problem gambling, crime and traffic; • Increased need for police and fire support. I sincerely hope the East Greenbush Town Board Members are doing their due diligence and spending many days and nights contemplating the Casino decision, weighing these and many other factors very carefully! ~ Pete Stenson, 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.

“WHEELCHAIR VAN” FUNDRAISER FOR KEITH WHITE!! Keith White, Jr. has overcome many obstacles in his life. He was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus when he was born. Keith was given his last rights read to him 16 times. He is now 21 years of age. Keith’s disability is related to a serious brain malformation that left him with intellectual disabilities such as cerebral palsy, vision and hearing concerns, epilepsy, frequent aspiration pneumonia, temperature irregularity, seizure disorder, frequent suctioning, shunt in place and the loss of movement. He often requires home-based IV antibiotic treatment every 6 hours for respiratory infections. He is also on supplemental oxygen therapy via nasal cannula 24/7. Keith receives physical therapy, occupational therapy, music, speech, and vision therapy here at home. Keith does not attend a program or school due to his disability. He is in need of a wheelchair van to improve the quality of care and transportation to and from the doctors and hospital. We currently lift him in and out of the car when we go out to the doctor, hospital or any outings. Keith’s current weight is 88 lbs, and his chair that we lift in and out of the car is 120 lbs. We have 2 other children, a boy who is 10 and a girl who is 16. They help us out a lot when it comes to their brother. Sometimes we have to take one of them with us on Keith’s doctor appointments to help with suctioning him when he needs it or help carry his oxygen. We try to make their lives as normal as possible with activities and everyday life, but it’s not easy for any of us. Keith is always keeping us on our toes. We thank the Lord and we cherish every day we get to spend with him. We are asking everyone to share our story and help us with our fundraiser for a wheelchair van. Thank you, we hope to see everyone at the Benefit on August 24th. WE ARE LOOKING FOR ALL DONATIONS FOR OUR EVENT. Event will be on August 24th, 2014 at LYONS LAKE, NASSAU, NY. If you would like to donate by check, please make checks out to Keith White and mail to: 494 North Nassau Road, Averill Park, NY OR you can go to Cap Com FCU at 233 North Greenbush Road. We are also looking for Sponsors for our Banner and T-shirts. If interested, please contact Eileen White at 518-674-3586.

GIVE BLOOD IN HONOR OF WORLD BLOOD DONOR DAY The American Red Cross encourages all eligible donors to choose their day to help save lives by giving blood in honor of World Blood Donor Day. Every year, on June 14, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The occasion raises awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and thanks voluntary blood donors for their lifesaving gifts of blood. World Blood Donor Day comes at a very important time each year,” said Kay E. Schwartz, New York-Penn Blood Services Region. “Summer can be a challenging time for blood donations, with fewer donors available to donate blood due to busy summer schedules. World Blood Donor Day gives us an opportunity to highlight the need for blood during the summer months and yearround.” To learn more and make an appointment to donate blood, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS. Upcoming blood donation opportunities: • 6/6/2014, 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM, Hoosick Falls Fire Department, Main Street, Hoosick Falls, NY 12090; • 6/ 7/2014, 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM,YMCA, 2500 21st Street, Troy, NY 12180; • 6/14/2014, 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM, St. Timothy’s Church, 470 Winter Street Ext., Troy, NY 12180.

Box 415, West Sand Lake, NY, 12196: #1 the name (s) of the original deed purchaser. #2 your name as the current deed holder and, #3 your current address and phone number.

BEWARE of the LURE of “EASY MONEY” Letter to the Editor: If a stranger tried to hand you a $100 bill, what would you think? “What’s the catch?” or “What do I have to do for it?” or possibly “Is it counterfeit?” might spring to mind. You wouldn’t trust the giver – would you? You’d be skeptical of this sudden, random windfall. You’d wonder: “What’s in it for HIM?” I urge you to apply this same skepticism when considering the many promises being advertised to us by “The Casino at East Greenbush.” Can we – dare we? – believe the hashtag promises in the mailings they keep sending? #ConstructionJobs? #LocalRevenue? #LocalPartnerships? And how about the biggest hashtag lure of them all: #LowerTaxes?? Can we truly believe that our tax bills will be LESS once we have a casino? That we’ll see our annual bills go DOWN? Personally, I’ve never seen my tax bill reduced for any “outside” reason, such as when FedEx arrived. The only time it decreased was when I challenged my home’s assessment, and proved it was overvalued. The way slot machines promise you’ll “Win Big!!” – and then strip your debit card of its available balance – these casino developers are trying to lure us with promises that will never be realized. They’re in this to make BIG money. And they’ll promise us anything for the privilege of doing it in our community. Don’t be hooked by their slogans and the lure of easy money. Sign the petition opposing the casino, and let’s stop this madness. ~ Mary Beth Earley, 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.

SENSING THE SPIRIT OF GOD On Sunday, June 8, 23014, the Nassau Reformed Church will celebrate Pentecost as worshipers will dress in brilliant colors and leave trays of flowering plants of red, orange, yellow and other bright blooms on the chancel to celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit. Worship will include a presentation of Sunday School boys and girls based on the parable of the wise man and the foolish man according to the Gospel of Matthew; the awarding of Achievement Pins to boys and and girls for completing another year of Sunday School; and the Reception into Communicant Membership in the Reformed Church of America at Nassau of Allen Paul Field. The annual Sunday School Picnic will follow worship as we celebrate the many ways we share our praise and glory to God. The meditation in worship on this Lord’s Day will be based on Acts 2:1-21 which tells the story of all the first apostles being gathered to celebrate Pentecost when a “violent wind” from heaven disrupted them. In the sermon “Sensing The Spirit of God,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will speak about the Holy Spirit descending upon our accustomed patterns and values in life and thrusting us into new possibilities of life in a world where God is active and the Holy Spirit empowers us so that God might move us and our world toward God’s intent for us. Worship at Nassau Reformed begins at 11 a.m. in the chapel located on the second level of its ChurchSchool-Building, 43 Church Street, Nassau.

Letter to the Editor: I was happy to see Sue Mangold, Mary Ann Matters and Deb DiMartino at last Thursday night’s forum on casino gambling. It would have been even better if Keith Langley and Phil Malone had been there too. After the talk by Les Bernal, many citizens expressed their displeasure with the way the original resolution was passed and expressed their concern with the Town Board in general. A few called for “impeachment” or recall. Please realize that it is now more than just the casino. The issue is good government. It is not just a handful of people who are fed up. When Paul Vandenberg asked Ed Gilbert what the Town Board was doing to educate themselves about casinos, pro and con, Ed came back with a flip answer. Be advised that many of us do not believe you all listen to their concerns or are interested in what they have to say. You govern for yourselves. You were elected not to do as you want, but to do the people’s work. As you make your decision on the casino resolution, remember that. That proposition vote on the November ballot had nothing to do with a casino in East Greenbush and you all know that. You can’t use that as a cover and you know it. Your vote on this resolution will affect your future more than you can know. Think about it. ~ Suzanne Aiardo, 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.
