NOW OPEN SUNDAYS COMMITTEE TO ELECT RON CAMPANO RENSSELAER COUNTY SHERIFF After much consideration, recently retired New York State Trooper Ronald “Ron” J. Campano is announcing his intentions to run for the November 08, 2011 Rensselaer County Sheriff’s election. At the current age of 60 years old, Campano was forced into retirement last December from his job as a Senior Investigator with more than 37 years with the New York State Police. Currently New York law mandates that all troopers retire by the age of 60. Considering himself a viable candidate, Mr. Campano has put together an “exploratory committee” comprised of community leaders, members of law enforcement, close friends and advisors to take a look at the most practical approach to a successful campaign. Mr. Campano is currently registered as an Independent. Campano believes that he can introduce new policy and procedure within the Sheriff’s department that will save Rensselaer County taxpayers millions of dollars over time. Vowing to lead by example, Campano insists that when he is elected to the Sheriff’s position that he will “give back the first two months of his annual salary” to the hard working taxpayers of Rensselaer County. Campano adds, “I believe that I could manage the position as Sheriff and would act on more of a community basis by giving back more services to the county taxpayers, and putting pride and respect back into the department.” “Being a Trooper in New York for over 37 years has afforded me the personal and professional connections on a local, state and national level that will guarantee my successful run for this office. I have had a lot of good people willing to do anything for me to make this happen, and I look forward to the opportunity and the challenge.” Ron Campano currently lives with his wife Patti in West Sand Lake, New York and has two grown children Robert and Tricia; and has one wonderful grandson Andrew. Any person or group who wishes to be involved in the committee to elect Ron Campano for the office of Rensselaer County Sheriff should contact Ron directly at (518) 712-9529 or go to his website at

EAST GREENBUSH AMBULANCE DISTRICT DISPOSES OF RESCUE VEHICLE The East Greenbush Ambulance District, acting by and through the East Greenbush Town Board, recently disposed of its full-service, heavyrescue vehicle, known as Rescue 62, for a sale price of $265,000. The disposal, which was authorized by the Town Board at its April meeting, was undertaken via a public, open-bid process aptly conducted by our Town Comptroller, Jim Breig. Rescue 62, which very much resembles a fire truck, but is essentially a giant toolbox on wheels, is designed and equipped to allow the performance of advanced rescue operations, including vehicle extrication. Over the last year, the Town Board, in consultation with officials of W. F. Bruen Emergency Squad, recognized that there is currently exceptional coordination of rescue-related services within the town by the Best-Luther Fire Department, the Clinton Heights Fire Department, and the East Greenbush Fire Company. Accordingly, the vehicle was designated by the Town Board as surplus to the needs of the Ambulance District, and its disposal, therefore, deemed to be in the best interest of the District. Since the town purchased Rescue 62 in 2002, the staff of W. F. Bruen Emergency Squad has ensured that the vehicle has been maintained in excellent condition, both aesthetically and operationally. As a result, the District realized a premium sale price when the Walworth Fire District No. 1, located in Wayne County just east of Rochester, took delivery of the vehicle on May 28. With a portion of the sale proceeds having been used to pay a 5% sale commission and pay off the balance of the vehicle loan, the remainder has been applied to the Ambulance District fund and will be used to pay for future District-related expenses. ~Rick Matters, East Greenbush Town Councilman

May was a busy and productive month for the Town Board. Prior to our monthly meeting we celebrated the 2011 Spotlight on Youth Awards in which a group of distinguished young people were presented awards. Those honored this year were Katelyn Job, Caitlin O’Neil, Lauren Stockli, Ciara Cristo, Jared Stone and Nicholas Whitney. East Greenbush and the City of Rensselaer approved a joint Water District Agreement. This agreement resulted in the reimbursement of $578,268.00 to our town for past water bonding. This revenue was not in the 2011 budget and will be used to offset the debt of our current bond. The agreement included payments for the remainder of the bond pay-off. A site plan approval for a new Dunkin Donuts passed unanimously. We moved one step closer to bringing a roundabout to Couse Corners; retaining a local inspection firm for construction. Construction of roundabout is scheduled to begin after schools recess for the summer. We will be providing more information regarding alternate routes and schedule at an informational meeting to be announced. Also, please check our Town website for more information on all events going on in the Town. The Board approved a resolution for “Wireless 911” equipment for emergency calls. This new technology will forward all 911 calls to our local 911 answering points; bypassing the county for a more quick response time to calls. This upgrade was paid for through the County’s “E911 Account”. Our Community and Recreational Activities Department is still taking registrations for this year’s summer camp. This year the camp is under new management and looking forward to providing a safe and fun summer for campers. Please call Dani or Anita at 477-4194 to get registered. We are happy to report that. Labella Pizza at the intersection of Gilligan Rd and 9&20 just reopened. Please stop in and get a slice. Also, on June 11th, local businesses are encouraging you to patronize local small businesses with “Pick and Poke along the Pike”. We would like to thank Kinderhook Bank for hosting an event honoring our veterans and current service men and women. The presentations and speakers were outstanding, and we were glad to see that many stopped by to thank our servicemen and women. Our Memorial Day parade on Saturday was very well attended and the Melvin Roads Post did an exemplary job with the honors.

Come join us in our in-depth, exciting Christian’s women’s Bible study. We are a non-denominational group of women, of any age, who seek to know all we can about God from the source He has given to us, the Bible. We are not affiliated with any church. We simply seek the truth and let God reveal Himself through the Bible. Studies are every Thursday from 6:309:00p.m. at the East Greenbush Library and St. Mary’s Church on Columbia Turnpike in Rensselaer, alternately. (St. Mary’s Church has graciously allowed us to use their facility.) Anyone interested is encouraged to call Sue at 432-9094 for more information. God is seeking you; are you seeking Him?

R.A.A.D COMMUNITY MEETING Once upon a time, in a community very near, there were children, teens, young adults and others whose lives had been devastated by the horrors of underage drinking and drugging. Community members soon came together, working diligently to overcome this scourge affecting so many people’s lives. The twelve sectors of the community came together, educated themselves about the enemy (alcohol and other drugs), and wrote a grant for $625,000 to help change the picture to a happy and healthy one. Lo and behold, they received the money and made an unprecedented change in the direction the community went. This ensured that all youth were given the opportunity to live in a supportive and healthy community and realize their full potential. And everyone lived happily ever after… We want this happy picture for our youth who attend the Averill Park School District. If you are a parent or caregiver, business owner, law enforcement, youth, elected official or work in the media or health field, work serving local youth and families or are a part of a religious or fraternal organization, civil or volunteer group, state, local or tribal government agency (and almost anyone reading this letter probably is) then you are one of twelve sectors. The Averill Park community coalition known as RAAD-(Rage Against Alcohol and Drugs in our community) is asking for your help in bringing grant monies to our children, teens and young adults. In order for us to apply for the grant, all 12 sectors of the community need to be involved. We have a wonderful opportunity to make positive change and impact the devastating effects of underage drinking and drugging present here –where we shop, eat, visit, conduct business and live… Please attend the next RAAD meeting June 15th at 6:30 pm in the Algonquin Middle School library. For further information, please contact Lori Woltmann at 674-8061. ~RAAD Community Members: Lori Woltmann, Barbara Glasser, Stuart Nippes, Rev. Dr. Robert Loesch, Chris Blais, Olga Ashline, Debbie Peterson, Jenn O’Neil and Teresa D’Arcangelis.

The three daughters of Harold and Marion Weatherwax (Janet, Sandra and Kathleen) admire the ornamental cherry tree just planted in Elmwood Cemetery in memory of their parents. Patroon Nursery also planted a second Kwanzan cherry tree donated in remembrance of the many generations of the Weatherwax family buried at Elmwood since its inception in the early 1800’s. This picture, along with notations by the family, becomes the first entries in an Elmwood Memorial album to be maintained by the Cemetery Association. Plans for development of the 2 acre expansion of the cemetery will include landscaping with trees, hedges and benches in designated areas. There will be opportunities for other families to donate lasting memorials to their loved ones. Patroon Nursery has been selected to support the program through recommendation and selection, pricing and installation (as desired) of stock appropriate to the planting area. For more information, contact Association President Sandra Billings at 283-4618 or via email at

The largest parade of its kind, it starts at 4th and Main streets and ends at 4th and Grand streets in downtown Troy. “The Flag Day Parade is dedicated to the American flag and the principles of freedom Old Glory represents. The parade also honors the men and women of our armed forces, who have died fighting for or are currently defending our country at home and abroad,” said Mayor Harry Tutunjian, who encouraged people to attend and show their support. This year there are 125 different organizations, including drum corps, fire departments, military and veteran’s organizations, and local high schools with representation from both Troy and Lansingburgh high schools. Some organizations are from as far away as Buffalo and New Jersey. For 2011, the Troy IDA helped support the 2011 parade with a $5,000 grant to help keep this enormously popular event continuing. The Flag Day Parade Committee thanks the City of Troy, Rensselaer County, the volunteers that assist throughout the parade, and all of the people who support the parade by sending in donations. The parade continues to be successful because of their efforts and the enthusiastic support of parade watchers along the parade route. The committee noted donations are still being accepted. Checks or money orders made payable to “Troy Flag Day Committee” can be mailed to PO Box 56, Troy, NY 12181.

A volunteer planting crew at Hampton Manor Park consisted of (front to back), Jen Van Gelder, Julia Hoggan, Kaila Kutz from Girl Scout Troop 1083, Erica Molina, with Nate Hans a Parks Task Force Member, Councilwoman Ginny O’Brien, and Troop Leader Kim Hoggan standing. Cleanup and beatification projects are underway again in the Town of East Greenbush. Drivers are already enjoying spring flowers along Columbia Turnpike that were planted last year. This year’s efforts have kicked off with a project at the Hampton Manor Lake House. Girl Scout Troop 1083 signed up through the Town’s Youth and Recreation Activities Dept. to Plant Flower beds on a Saturday morning. As the Scouts were hard at work with members of the Town’s Parks Task Force, Erica Molina happened by, and asked if she could join in as a “citizen volunteer.” Other projects that can be accomplished in an hour or two, on an evening or weekend are on the planning list. Anyone who might be moved by the same community minded spirit of young Erica Molina and Troop 1083 can take part. To volunteer for a project in a park or neighborhood, or for more information, please contact Department Head Daniela Lanni in the Town Hall Office at 477-4194, or

The East Greenbush Business Alliance is dedicated to the revitalization and beautification of the Town of East Greenbush. There are monthly meetings and all business owners are welcome. If you would like more information, please contact Evelyn Butrico, Chairman of the EGBA, at the East Greenbush Community Library by calling 477-7476 x 109 or emailing The second annual “Pick & Poke Along the Pike” event is this Saturday, June 11th. Come and see what bargains can be found at the sidewalk sales of the businesses along Columbia Turnpike. Also, please stop in at the East Greenbush Animal Hospital to donate school supplies for children in our community for Circles of Mercy. Have you heard of the 3/50 project? You can check it out on the net. This is the concept. What 3 independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around. Now if half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate much revenue for our locally owned businesses. Imagine the positive impact if ¾ the employed population did that! For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home. Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your local economy.

DISAPPOINTING START IN THE VILLAGE OF NASSAU Letter to the Editor: On April 13th, in a packed village hall, Village of Nassau residents reviewed the 2011/12 budget proposed by Mayor Collins. Unfortunately, residents were not able to ask questions of the Mayor regarding the budget because he did not attend the budget hearing. Instead, he left an unprepared Deputy Mayor and the other village trustees to face the public. Many questions were raised and few answers were provided. Here are just some of the more serious problems with the budget: 1) the village trustees admitted that they had no input into the budget, and the Deputy Mayor commented that this was the first time he’d seen the numbers; 2) the budget excluded funding for expenses the village is already contractually obligated to pay; and 3) there were no explanations provided for the personnel decisions presented in the budget. For a new administration that is supposedly ready to address questions of consolidation of services and perhaps even whether the village should continue to exist at all, this is a disappointing start. If even the trustees don’t know what is going on, how will the residents? I urge all village residents to attend the monthly village board meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm at the village hall. The next meeting is scheduled for July 13th. Village business should be conducted openly and transparently. I urge you to demand that negotiations between the village and other municipalities happen in public meetings with opportunity for public input and comment. I hope that this administration begins working more responsibly. I intend to be there to help ensure it does. ~Gaetano J.

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, any donation is greatly appreciated!! Also, be sure to “Like” me on Facebook!

GREENSNEAKERS PROGRAM COLLECTION A number of local churches have teamed up to conduct a fundraiser for fellow Pastor and friend, the Rev. William D. “Kip” Slawter III of Hope Church, Ballston Spa. Nearly a year ago, Slawter was riding his bike and skidded into a steep ditch, leaving him paralyzed from the shoulders down. In a joint effort with the GreenSneakers program, local churches will be collecting used, rubber-soled sneakers. The GreenSneakers program takes the sneakers that are collected and makes them available for reuse as affordable footwear in some of the neediest countries around the world. Community residents are encouraged to participate by bringing their used, rubber-soled sneakers (no cleats or spikes) to Redeeming Love Gospel Church, Screen-it LTD (collection site), 668 Hoosick Street, Brunswick, NY 12180 - 518-272-0571 on Saturday, June 11, 2011, from 9 to Noon.

Letter to the Editor: David Crawmer misconstrued my letter last month to The Advertiser, the intent of which was not to impugn his intelligence or question his political convictions. I was reacting to the general tone of his article wherein he used someone’s bumper sticker as a springboard to launch a manifesto which did precisely that – it insulted the intelligence and vilified the political values of anyone with whom he happens to disagree. I adhere to the notion that ideas should be considered on their own merit, regardless of their source. If someone espouses an idea or course of action that makes sense to me, I’ll support it, give credit where it’s due and vote accordingly. In fact, Mr. Crawmer, I occasionally agree with you; for instance, I agree with your observation that the inquiry by Hillary Clinton’s 2008 primary campaign staff into Barack Obama’s American birth legitimacy was dirty politics. By the way, you will note that I used the term “Birther” in quotes because I share your stated, though seldom observed, aversion to labels. The broader point was to express my distaste for our cultural tendency to view every issue through the narrow lens of political ideology, party affiliation, ethnicity, religion, or what have you. This is no longer the Age of Reason and Thomas Paine would be appalled at the lack of common sense and civility in our current public discourse. Instead, it’s the age of media saturation, celebrity worship and a general disregard for learning or rational thought. My letter was meant as a cautionary note against overweening pride in one’s own intellectual gifts and Donald Trump was offered as a prime example of such braggadocio. It was impersonal and apolitical to the point that it did not merit an editorial caveat. I made no reference to any particular ‘ism’ or actual political issue of consequence, so I fail to see the relevance of Mr. Crawmer’s comments on job creation and business regulation in this context. ~Patrick Sturn, Wynantskill ( 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.
