NORTH GREENBUSH TOWN BOARD SHOULD WEIGH IN ON CASINO PROJECTS As a member of the North Greenbush Democratic Committee , I am calling on the Town Board to weigh in on the two proposed casino projects under consideration in the bordering communities of Rensselaer and East Greenbush. Clearly a decision to site a casino in either of these two proposed sites will have an impact on North Greenbush. The Town Board should hold a Public Hearing to gather community input and decide whether to support or oppose a casino in either of the two proposed sites. Smaller towns that will be impacted far less due to their proximity to either site have voted to support the East Greenbush proposal. North Greenbush shares a border with each of the two proposed communities and will likely feel the impact from traffic, and potential demands for back up police and volunteer emergency responder services should a situation arise. Neither site would produce direct tax revenue for the town. I would also note that the town’s Comprehensive Plan guiding development was completed long before casino development would become a possibility. Therefore, no public input was ever solicited or considered in the completed Comprehensive Plan. This makes the need for a public hearing before the Town Board makes a decision to support or oppose a casino in these neighboring communities, all the more important. C.B.

LOVE LUTHERAN CHURCH The old hymn begins: “We all believe in one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” [LSB 953/954] Each Sunday we worship the living, triune God, but especially on this Sunday – The Feast of the Holy Trinity – do we marvel and concentrate on all that He has done for us… and the example he has set for us, even as missionaries. Pastor Henry will present a sermon entitled, “Our Co-mission” based on Matthew 28: 16-20, designed that the fearers might understand that the Church’s mission is rooted in the mission of the Triune God Himself, granting us a greater confidence and joy in our callings. And be sure to stay after worship today for a time of Fellowship celebrating Fathers’ Day, presented by the ladies of Love Lutheran Church. Join us at 10:00 AM as we worship and receive the gifts God has for us in His Word. Love Lutheran Church is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush. Please go to our new website – – for more information and directions, or call 477-8685.

During the last week in May, a New York State championship team of eighth graders from Algonquin Middle School traveled to Ames, Iowa to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind 2014 World Finals. The Algonquin Middle School team finished in 11th place out of 53 teams. The top ten teams were from: 1) Chino, CA; 2) Flowery Branch, GA; 3) Toyota, Japan; 4) Marble Hill, GA; 5) Poquoson, VA; 6) Singapore, Singapore; 7) Shanghai, China; 8) Merritt Island, FL; 9) Wilmington, DE; and 10) Kill Devil Hills, NC. The Algonquin Middle School team was coached by Ross McClure and consisted of Zach Effman, Madison Hasbrouck, Adam Johnson, Lauren McClure, Leah Paulson, and Kevin Silver. The Algonquin Middle School team competed in Odyssey of the Mind Problem 4 called “The Stackable Structure”, where teams designed and built structures made of only balsa wood and glue. These structures were stacked on top of each other. Weights were placed on top of the stackable structure and teams received points corresponding to how much weight they could support. Before they were stacked, the separate components were integrated into an artistic representation of Earth. In addition to the Problem 4 competition, the Algonquin Middle School team participated in a problem solving exercise called “Spontaneous”. Appropriately named, Spontaneous tests creative problem solving skills and teams received points from a panel of judges.

Greetings and best wishes to everyone in the City of Rensselaer. As Rensselaer’s representative to the County Legislature, I am happy to report to you on the actions taken by the Rensselaer County Legislature at our May 13, 2014 legislative meeting. The Van Rensselaer Manor nursing home is one of the top nursing homes in the region. We are happy the county is now positioned to generate a savings for the Manor, with a refinancing of the facility’s loan. The refinancing was approved unanimously. The refinancing was made possible thanks to the county’s strong economic position, including an upgrade of the county’s bond rating. The bond rating upgrade puts the county in a solid position to attract more investment and job creation. The Legislature also approved a resolution approving distribution of revenues from the filing of mortgages in the county during the past six months. Rensselaer will receive $45,059 under the resolution to help provide local services and programs. I was honored to join the many veterans, residents and elected officials in participating in the annual Memorial Day parade. We were joined by Peter Goebel, the new county Veteran Service Agency director. The next Music in the Park event features Bobby Dick on June 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the North End Firehouse, 2 St. Francis Place at the intersection of I-90 and Washington Avenue. Congratulations to all the graduates in the class of 2014, particularly those from the city of Rensselaer schools. There will be a fundraiser in support of Debbie Ellis, a 1973 graduate of Rensselaer High dealing with breast cancer, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 14 at the North Albany American Legion Post. For more information, call 364-6285. The Legislature annually prepares an Officials and Services Directory including contact information for many of the people, places and things that make Rensselaer County a great place to live and work. The new 2014 edition of the Directory is now available. To obtain a print copy of the Directory, call 270-2880 or email at the legislative websites. Copies are also available for download via the legislative website. Residents are welcome to contact us at the legislative offices by writing to the Rensselaer County Legislature, 1600 7th Avenue, Troy, NY 12180 or by e-mailing us via the official legislative website at

RENSSELAER B IRD CENTER EXOTIC & CAGED BIRDS All Your Bird Needs Lots of Toys for Your Bird!

Hi Everyone! We are Feste and Ellie! We’re shy, grey, tiger kitties, about two years old, looking for homes. Feste is male and Ellie is female and we’re the best of friends! Of course it would be nice to stay together, as brother & sister, but we could easily go to different homes. What is most important for us is finding the right kind of person. We are working on coming out of our shells and need a patient person with love and understanding to help us get there. We’re really nice kitties; we enjoy petting - & certainly treats - but we’re “scaredy cats!” We get along fine with other kitties but we could also live solo. We’re very hopeful we’ll find our chance for a forever home soon. Why just last month another shy kitty from our group got her chance here, so we have all of our toes crossed that it is our turn! Please consider adopting one or both of us!! Give a scaredy-cat a chance! As with all Purrfect Companion kitties, Feste & Ellie are up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and neutered or spayed. For more information on Feste & Ellie, please contact the following Purrfect Companions’ representative: Maryann at 331-2221 or at Please use this phone number only for adoption purposes! 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 4638709. Stop by and see some of our other kitties! We may have one that is just “PURRFECT” for you!

The American Lung Association of the Northeast is now accepting applications for its Champ Camp for Kids with Asthma (CCKA), which is being held this year at Camp Chingachgook, located on Lake George in Kattskill Bay, New York, from Sunday, August 17 through Friday, August 22. At CCKA, children ages 8-11 with moderate to severe asthma will experience the excitement and fun of a five-day, co-ed summer camp in a safe, medically-supervised environment. Having asthma inhibits a lot of kids from being able to attend camp,” said Michael Bissonette, RRT, respiratory therapist at Fletcher Allen Healthcare and lead CCKA respiratory therapist. “During the week, the kids are taught how to manage their asthma at home. Seeing what a great opportunity and success Champ Camp is for these campers, keeps me going back every year!” Thanks to generous donors and sponsors, each camper will receive a full scholarship to attend camp. For more information, or for an application packet, contact Ronald Douglass at (802) 8766860 or toll-free at 1-800LUNG-USA, Option 1, Ext. 6860.

WEEDS I was standing in my front yard, With a digging tool in my right hand, A mess of dandelions in my left. “You will never get rid of those weeds that way” Commented a passing walker, up from the Mansion District. “You gotta poison them!” “Weeds?...These are not weeds,” I replied; “These are dandelions, and I’m collecting some for a supper salad...not trying to get rid of them!” “Their greens are delicious...their flowers incredibly beautiful,” I continued. “Nothing beats a bouquet of dandelions Clutched tightly in a child’s hand as a gift for Mom!” “Yeah, but they crowd out my lawn grass,” he persisted; That I have spent so much money on. I’m working with a Master Gardener to get rid of them.” “Do that,” I said, “And you will be poorer for it. Me, I’ll just thank the real Master Gardener For sharing dandelions with me!” ~ Lloyd Barnhart, West Sand Lake

by Riley Ludwig Once again, Averill Park is home to Regional Champions! The baseball team shocked everyone following their sectionals win as the eighth seed a couple of weeks ago. Now, the Warriors are set to compete in the state semifinals. After defeating Burnt Hills for the Section II Class A title, the Averill Park baseball team had a week to prepare for their first game of the state tournament. They traveled to Syracuse to compete at Onondaga Community College against JamesvilleDeWitt of Section III on Friday, 6/6. It was an incredibly close game that was decided by a run scored by senior Ben Reinisch in the sixth inning. A sacrifice fly hit by senior Tyler Childrose drove in Reinisch from third. Childrose was also leading the Warriors defensively from the mound, pitching a complete game. He struck out six and only allowed one hit. The game ended in a 1-0 win for the Warriors, which meant advancing to the regional championship. The regional championship took place on Saturday, 6/7, at Bellizzi Field, home of the College of St. Rose’s baseball team. The Warriors faced Massena of Section X. If there was any doubt that the Warriors are looking to win it all, that doubt was squashed after this game. The Warriors broke the game open with eight runs scored in the bottom of the third. Senior Chris Amadon hit a pivotal three-run double that led the two out rally by the Warriors. Senior Ben Reinisch hit three singles in this game and accumulated three RBIs while doing so. The Warriors had twelve hits total against Massena. Defensively, the Warriors were led by senior pitcher Alex Tomlinson, who pitched a complete game for Averill Park. Senior Max Tessitore also threw out a runner at home from right field for the final out of an inning. The Warriors won by an astounding score of 16-1. The regional championship win is the first in the program’s history. The Warriors have had the week to practice and prepare for this upcoming weekend’s games. The state semifinal game will take place at 1:00 pm Saturday, 6/14, at Union-Endicott High in Binghamton. The Warriors face Rye of Section I. If the Warriors win, the state championship takes place immediately following the semifinal game, at 4:00 pm. This season has been full of firsts for the baseball program. If there is anything this year’s team has taught us, it’s to never doubt the eighth seed! I wish all of the players and coaches the best of luck going into this weekend. Feel free to contact me at with any questions. As always, go Warriors!

APHS Senior Tyler Childrose first became interested in baseball when he was four years old, and he would play catch in the yard with his friends, eventually leading to his involvement in Twin Town Little League. Tyler’s dedication for the game was first discovered when he was watching a Yankees game and knew that he wanted to be just like that one day, on the big screen. Now, for Tyler’s final year of varsity high school ball, he is a pitcher and first baseman. Besides baseball, Tyler also snowboards in the winter, and used to play CYO basketball. In his spare time, Tyler enjoys playing football, Xbox, and hanging out with his friends and girlfriend. During the off season, Tyler and the team play all summer long and then shut it down for a couple of months to rest their arms. During those months, their goal is to get in the weight room and gain muscle and a little weight. Once those couple of months is over, they start to practice at the All Star Academy on fundamentals and mechanics to improve their skills as much as they can. The teams’ hard work has certainly paid off since winning a Section Two Champion’s Plaque as well as becoming Regional Champions! “My parents have inspired me to be the person I am today. They have pushed me as hard as I can to try and prepare me as much as possible for when I’m on my own. Without them, I wouldn’t be going to college, or have done as well as I did throughout high school,” Tyler says. For Tyler’s senior year, he is taking Men’s Literature, Economics, Forensics, and Trigonometry, with an 88 GPA. After high school, Tyler is going to Siena College on a baseball scholarship where he will be majoring in Business. When I asked what being a Most Dedicated Athlete means to him, he told me, “Being a Most Dedicated athlete means that not only are athletes focused on the field, but they put in just as much work off the field. School comes first then baseball.” Congratulations on a great season, Tyler, and the best of luck to you at Siena and all of your future plans. ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

CALLED (EMPOWERED) BY GOD Sunday, June 15, 2014, is TRINITY SUNDAY and FATHER’S DAY. The Nassau Reformed Church will honor and praise our God in Three Persons and share our love and gratitude for our Dads with focus on Matthew’s Great Commission ( Matt 28: 1620). It is here where Jesus speaks to his disciples, with authority, and summons them (us) to make disciples of all nations. Further, he tells us to go out to baptize and teach in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and to be obedient to what he has taught us. In the sermon titled, “Called (Empowered) by God,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will proclaim God as a God of action in this world and for all nations; and that through Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit, God remains in the world to baptize, teach, and save humankind which He created in His image. Worship at Nassau Reformed begins at 11 a.m. in the chapel located on the second level of its Church-School-Building, 43 Church Street, Nassau.

NAMI RENSSELAER PRESENTS “VOICES” BY JANE HARTENSTEIN “In 1100AD a monk named Henri hears voices telling him he is Saint Martin of Tours. Today we would recognize it as an illness called schizophrenia. Knowing his behavior will be a Costly embarrassment to church and King, a unique solution is found. Thus begins a journey through the inland waterways on a ship of fools at the dawn of medicine and psychiatry.” This is a blurb about the book “Voices” written by Jane Hartenstein. Jane has worked with people who hear voices and their families for over thirty years. She often wondered what life would have been like for them in other times, perhaps the time of the Crusades, 1100AD. Voices is the result of extensive historical research and a lifetime of experience. NAMI Rensselaer County is excited to announce that Jane Hartenstein will be speaking at the SUNYA School of Public Health, 1 University Place, Rensselaer, on Thursday, June 26th, at 6:30pm. This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 588-6949 or email:

CAN YOU HELP A CHILD THIS SUMMER? This year, even more so than last year, there are so many working families, especially single parent households, in need of financial help for essential childcare in order to maintain their employment and ensure their children are safe this summer. Most of them were previously eligible for some aid from Social Services, but, though they remain in the low income range set by Federal guidelines, their assistance has been eliminated and they have nowhere to turn. Many will have to quit their jobs and/or leave their children in the care of young siblings or in “undesirable” situations- like 10-12 year olds on their own. Hope 7 has always decreased fees, and sometimes charged nothing, but this year the need is still far greater than we can handle on our own. We are hopeful of receiving some help again from “The Times Union Hope Fund”, but we can only stretch that funding just so far. Boundaries do exist as when free or reduced rate enrollment increases so does the need for additional counselors, supplies, etc. Plus, we have the constant major expense of a $9-10,000 bus bill as we are the only camp that travels everyday to park venues, so the children can be outside enjoying summer’s great offerings rather than being cooped up inside with tvs and video games. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Our fee of $165 per week is less expensive than comparable programs and includes free lunch and snack for 5 days a week, 10.5 hours per day, for the entire summer. It would help us to know by June 15th if you would like to help and what we will have to work with in order to let families know if we can help them or not before school is out and do the additional hiring and planning. Any donation amounts will be gratefully accepted-every dollar helps a child! ~ Phyllis Sandow, Staff, and Those We Serve Hope 7 Community Center, 596 Pawling Avenue, Troy, NY 12180., - (518) 272-8029
