Isabelle School of Dance Competition Team Join the Isabelle School of Dance in an afternoon of fun in celebration of their 30th year. All students, alumni and families are invited to a Family Picnic on July 8 at Birch Hill. In 1982, “Miss Barbara” Bedell Hughes, (then Barbara Isabelle) opened The Isabelle School of Dance in Van Den Houten Square in East Greenbush. Since then, the school has expanded to the Schodack Business Park and 43 Mall, West Sand Lake. The faculty’s credentials range from B.A.’s and B.F.A.’s in dance, theater direction, Masters in Art and Education, Music Therapy and special education. The impact of the faculty reaches far beyond the classroom and dance studio. It is the Isabelle’s philosophy that students of all ages should gain knowledge of all forms of dance, through quality instruction and most importantly, having fun! Miss Barbara’s legacy lives on through her faculty, alumni and her daughter, and now school director, Caitlyn Fraser. The Isabelle School of Dance strongly believes that an education 3039 Rt. 43 - Averill Park, NY 12018 in dance and the performing arts is more than just “learning a few steps.” A strong foundation in dance helps children and adults build confidence, develop social skills, and promotes a passion for life and excellence. The Isabelle School of Dance creates an atmosphere that welcomes creativity, while maintaining a family atmosphere. Over the past few years, the studio has been honored to pass the joy of dance along to “2nd generation dancers” – as children and grandchildren of alumni join the Isabelle’s family. Isabelle’s offers classes for ages three through adult from beginner to advanced, in Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop, and Contemporary as well as specialty classes such as Zumba, Adult classes and STRIDE. Join the fun on July 8th. Ticket prices: $15 Adults and $10 Children 5-12, under 5 Free, which includes food/drinks, children’s and adult activities, bouncy bounce, silent auction for Caring Together and of course, music and dancing! Additional costs to be subsidized by the studio.

SAND LAKE’S FIRST CLEANUP DAY! Despite a less than perfect weather day, a band of intrepid citizens walked along the Rt. 43 highway, picking up trash on Sand Lake Clean-Up Day, June 2nd. Town supervisor, Flora Fasoldt, and S.L. Business Association president, Val Balga, led a small but enthusiastic crew on their rainy walk. The Boy Scouts were on hand with their terrific leaders, to clean-up Butler Park and the school properties. Between 10 and 11 am, the scouts got a tour of the WSL fire emergency vehicle and were encouraged to ask questions about the apparatus. Two vets, Duane Wehnau and Bill Glasser told the children about the Veterans’ Memorial and about their war experience. The children were very interested in the carved names on the granite slabs and some recognized familiar names. The Sand Lake Garden Club was on hand at Uncle Marty’s to share their expertise and townspeople took advantage of the free electronics drop off. The town garage staff was busy picking up bags of trash, taking in brush and giving away free mulch Saturday and Sunday. The convenience facility was open for extended hours on Sat. and also open on Sunday. The WSL and AP fire companies and the ambulance garage graciously offered water and rest areas. We are grateful to all these wonderful volunteers who set such a great example to the kids and adults of Sand Lake. ~ Submitted by, Dee Erickson

ARE YOU KIDDING YOURSELF ABOUT SMOKING? You really can Quit Smoking with’s easy, has no side effects and is Guaranteed! The single most important thing you can do for your health, your life and your family is to STOP SMOKING now! Although heavy smokers tend to underestimate the risk of their habit, more than 400,000 tobaccorelated deaths occur each year. Each cigarette you smoke robs you of TEN or more minutes of life, and adds the threat of disease and disability to what life remains. Did you know that with each puff of smoke, you are inhaling over 4,000 chemicals.....including arsenic, ammonia, cyanide, acetone, DDT, and more than 43 of these toxins are known to cause cancer. If you are concerned that you have smoked so long that it won’t make a difference to your health if you quit now - think again! Research has proven that your body benefits from quitting no matter how long you have smoked. Your body can even repair some of the damage that has been done; you will begin to function more efficiently; think more clearly; your concentration and memory will improve; you will have more energy, strength and stamina; and you will feel better, look better and even look years younger! It’s never too late to quit smoking. Hypnosis is a mechanism that provides the opportunity for the conscious and subconscious mind to choose to become a nonsmoker by incorporating the latest scientific research utilizing breathing and relaxation techniques, guided imagery, visualization and autosuggestion to communicate with the subconscious mind. National statistics indicate that hypnosis is effective in about 90% of the cases, while the nicotine patch is effective less than a third of the time. Chances are you already know someone who has quit smoking with hypnosis. I have been a practicing Hypnotist for more than 20 years and have helped hundreds

266 County Rt. 7, Nassau

Going back to 1945 its many customers remember it fondly as “Jeanne’s Place”. It’s a funky little snack shack pressed right up to the water on the west shore of Nassau Lake. Operated by three generations of the Morris family, it’s now known as the “Pirates Lakeside Grill” (the PLG) owned by Michael and Susan Rosenberg. Michael has road-tripped in 45 states looking for great family-owned diners, barbeque joints and drive-ins at which to enjoy the food and the history of the place. “While the quality of diners and barbeque joints has improved over the years, generally the quality of the food at drive-ins has gone down,” says Michael. “To compete with the big fast food chains, some places put on a face of old-time nostalgia, but the food is junky. It should be all about the food.” When Susie and Michael found Jeanne’s, they knew right away that it was the absolutely perfect setting for their vision of wholesome food in a great setting. They were determined that while raising the quality choices at the “PLG”, they would create a menu that was affordable to the average customer. The PLG offers a premium fish fry of batter-dipped cod. They also offer 9 different hot dogs and brats made of different meats and recipes, including 4 from Usingers of Milwaukee (since 1880), 2 from Zweigles of Rochester (also 1880), a smoked wiener from Route 66 Smokehouse in Wynantskill and a pasture-raised nitrate-free hot dog made for the PLG in Hoosick. For burgers, they start with a “gold label” 1/3 pound pure Angus beef burger for $4, but also offer a 1/4 pound local, organic, grass-fed beef or bison burger. A terrific and tasty garden burger is also available for those who do not want meat. Their fries are as good as any in the business as is their premium cod fish fry. They use the best and richest ice cream mix available and make awesome homemade milkshakes in five flavors. Susie’s knock-out homemade chili is proudly offered. “Everything we serve is special in some way,” says Michael. “We want the PLG to appeal to “Road Food” fans as well as the local community. It should be ‘worth a trip from anywhere’, and if we’ve got it right, the local community should find it that much more special to have us near at hand.” The Pirates Lakeside Grill is located at 266 County Route 7, Nassau, NY 12123. The PLG is open Thursday through Sunday from Noon to 8PM (closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). Check out for our complete menu and directions!

PROUD OF KEITH HAMMOND’S ACTIONS Letter to the Editor: As a working Families member, I recently attended a Democratic Nomination meeting to show my support for my fiancé Keith Hammond and left extremely disappointed. Keith’s opponent was nominated and allowed to speak, and when she had the opportunity to tell the people what she would do for them, she didn’t. She could have spoke about mandate relief, school taxes, or preserving our open space. Instead, she bragged about her political connections and how she could raise $400,000. And how sad it was for Keith that he wanted this so bad, but could not raise this kind of money. I was shocked to see that she would even get the nomination when the Democratic Party, as well as the Working Families Party, actively opposes such big money influence. I thought the Democratic Party always supported the average working man. Keith has worked decades for the Democratic Party and the people of Rensselaer County. When he told me the Democratic Executive Committee endorsed a Lawyer from Columbia County, I told him that the Executive Committee obviously believes there are too many farmers in the State Assembly and not enough Lawyers, and that the people need someone like him and to stay in the race no matter what. When Keith’s supporters tried to nominate him at this meeting, they were told no. The decision had already been made. This only angered his supporters. When the respectful debate turned into name calling, Keith stood on the floor and told everyone this is not what he wanted, that we were all Democrats, and if this is how it had to be, he would accept that. But I can tell you that if it had gone to the floor for a vote, Keith had the majority of the votes and proxies to win. I was proud of Keith’s actions. What he did for the good of the party proved that he is to me a man of character and worthy of being your State Assemblyman. ~ Brenda Mahar, Averill Park 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.

WE ARE AMONG THE RESPONSIBLE As the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches look at the Gospel of Mark 4:26-34, on Sunday, June 17th, they will come to more fully understand that “We,” the church, “Are Responsible” for the nurture and growth of the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. The seriousness of this responsibility becomes ever so much more important when we realize that our positive response to His “call” is the means by which His reign will include all who choose to follow him in time to come. For better or worse, if the world is going to meet Christ, it will have to encounter him in his body, the church, or not at all. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Church Street and Route 9J, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its chapel at 43 Church Street, Route 20, one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. Sunday School has adjourned in both churches for the Summer; although young people are welcome to worship at all times.

RENSSELAER HUMANE SOCIETY CELEBRATES ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY It’s hard to believe its been one year since we incorporated the Rensselaer Humane Society to serve the residents and municipalities in Rensselaer County. The embrace the community has offered us during this first year has been heartwarming to say the least. We would like to take this time to thank all those who stood behind us as we started with a dream and turned it into a reality. Special thanks to all those very special “guests” who have been in our care, always ready to give us hugs, kisses and nuzzling — and everyday reminding us of why we do what we do – this is all for you!

Ultrasounds are an invaluable tool in pet health care. At Nassau Veterinary Clinic, it’s used to diagnose problems quickly and without surgery. With an ultrasound, we can see Dr. Lisa Dietrich, DVM and measure organs, like and her dogs the kidneys, liver, gall bladder and heart. We can see organ walls and, using the doppler, watch the blood flow. With this information, we can swiftly determine treatment plans, and more importantly, save lives. Recently, I saw a Dalmatian mixed-breed dog. The dog was sick and lethargic. Comprehensive blood tests indicated anemia, but it was the ultrasound that revealed the problem, a bleeding tumor that required surgery. By the time the dog had surgery, it had lost a third of its blood. Without the ultrasound, we would not have known the dog needed surgery, and it likely would have bled to death. In another case, I saw a dog that was so weak, it had to be carried into the clinic. With the ultrasound, I saw a tumor by the heart that was bleeding into the heart sac, crowding the heart and interfering with its ability to expand. While the dog was on the ultrasound table, I aspirated the blood, removing several hundred milliliters. The results were immediate; where the dog had to be carried in, it walked out on its own. We are one of only a handful of veterinary clinics in the country to offer a human-caliber ultrasound machine for animal health care practice. With our Toshiba ultrasound, we cannot only see high-quality images and videos, but also store and send them to specialists. Ultrasounds are an invaluable tool in your pet’s health care, capable of making a lifesaving difference.

PET FOOD DONATIONS The Rensselaer County Humane Society, Inc. has developed a partnership with the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to provide donated pet food at the CEO Food Pantry located at 2328 Fifth Avenue in Troy. Laurie Smith, President of the all-volunteer Humane Society, said the decision to assist local families through a partnership with CEO was an easy choice. Far too many Rensselaer County residents are struggling with the difficulty of acquiring food for themselves and for their beloved pets, with many choosing to go without in order to care for their pets. “We are thrilled to be able to provide pet food to our customers along with supplies for their own families’ needs,” states CEO Executive Director Karen Gordon. “So often when a family is going through a difficult time, pets can be neglected. CEO is here to help prevent families in Rensselaer County from needing to make this difficult decision.” Pet food donations can be dropped off at the CEO food pantry in the Joseph L. Bruno Family Resource Center, 2328 Fifth Avenue, Troy. Hours are Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:004:30, Tuesdays 9-12:30, and Thursdays 9-7.

Domestic cats often enjoy a pampered existence. But in spite of their popularity as pets, cats are increasing in number at the nation’s animal shelters, and many do not go on to enjoy a stable existence at an adoptive home. Though not everyone can adopt a cat, there are ways beyond adoption that individuals can help the plight of shelter cats. * Donate goods to shelters. Area shelters are often in need of food, bedding materials, litter, and money to finance the care and housing of the animals. Visit the local shelter and inquire as to what is needed, then make a donation to that organization. * Spread the word about shelter cats. Shelters routinely offer photos and information about animals available for adoption. Post a link to a social networking site or send an e-mail or text to alert others about potential pets, particularly if someone has been looking to adopt a cat. * Become an advocate for spaying and neutering. Cat-lovers who already have one or more cats at home should have those pets spayed or neutered so they will not reproduce and add to shelter cat populations. * Be on the lookout for stray kittens. The warmer weather is often the birthing season for cats, and kittens often get lost.

We’ve gone from a nation of sovereign individuals with inalienable rights to one where groups have been given superseding rights. These new “rights” include the right to collective bargaining in a union, the right to health care, women’s reproductive rights, gay marriage, even the right to an education are aspects of this journey down the road to serfdom. Each contains elements designed to undermine the fundamental building blocks of our success; the family unit, self reliance, capitalism and faith. Virtually no one has been immune to this steady relentless creep toward the socialization of America. You probably didn’t realize it was happening because you weren’t supposed to. The world socialists who brought this disease to our shores knew that stealth was their key to success. Every attempt to “out” them has been countered with feigned laughter and incredulity while their worker parasites dug deeper into our vital institutions. The closest we ever got to exposing and removing them was the moderate success of Senator Joe McCarthy. Newsweek magazine’s February 2009 “We Are All Socialists Now” article highlighted a milestone in that it was the first time these collaborators dared to illuminate themselves. They thought the election of Barack Obama meant that a majority of Americans were finally down with the plan. In their eyes,the new President was clear about his intentions to put the finishing touches on our fundamental transformation. They thought that’s why people voted for him. They thought wrong. They may have succeeded if it weren’t for the fundamental superiority of Capitalism. The technological advances that can only succeed in a free market brought us a host of new information systems, formed outside of the left’s carefully cultivated old news media. Socialism’s media environment was a bubble formed by decades of journalism devoid of truth. That bubble is deflating. They created the vacuum that talk radio, cable news, Internet bloggers and others have very naturally formed to fill. What was started by Rush Limbaugh as a smoldering ember of truth and reason has become a wildfire of TEA Party activists. They are the 99%. ~ David Crawmer, 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.

The recipient of this award represents the next wave of future leaders of America.” The members of the Sand Lake Bicentennial Planning Committee credit the Friends, Mrs. Linda Ormsby, Mr. James Colabelli and many others and businesses for making this award possible. It is a pleasure to thank Benjamin Nasman for his service and to wish him a bright future.~ Nancy W. Davis, Co-chair S.L.B.P.C.

NOTICE TO SHERWOOD PARK RESIDENTS Town Of East Greenbush Sewer Clean out/Sherwood Park Area (from Phillips Rd to Corliss) This notice is to inform you that Reynolds Inliner will be beginning sanitary sewer rehabilitation work in your neighborhood. This work involves using high pressure water to clean the sewer lines of grease debris and obstructions. The lines will be televised following the cleaning process. Make sure there is water in your traps before and after the cleaning process. The cleaning process can create a vacuum, which will drain the water from your traps, if this occurs, and the smell of sewer gas is present in your home, flush all your toilets, run water in all your sinks and showers and dump water in any floor drains you may have. Occasionally air can get pushed up the lines causing a surge out of a drain or toilet bowl. Please close your toilet lids and drape a heavy towel over them. The work in your area will be performed the week of JUNE 14, THROUGH JULY 1, 2012. If you have any questions, please contact: George Lovely at 518465-0172 treatment plant or 518-269-6770 cell.

A PROUD VETERAN APHS TEACHER (RETIRED) Letter to the Editor: I attended the first Memorial Day Service at our new Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial park. It is located on RT 43 in front of the Averill Park High School. It was a well planned and professionally presented memorial service for all of our local veterans both past and present. The memorial park is now a “center piece” of the Town of Sand Lake that is located midway between West Sand Lake and Averill Park. The planning and work that has gone into this ongoing project is just overwhelming. A true tribute to the local veteran service organizations, the local community service organizations, local businesses and local volunteers interested in making this “dream” come true. Everyone that has helped in making this beautiful Veteran’s park should be very proud of their labor and support. As I listened to the speakers at the ceremony, I was surprised that all the speakers were graduates of the Averill Park School System. As a matter of fact, all of them were high school students while I spent my 34 years there as a teacher. As I recall, they were typical average students that went into the military in support of our country. When their tour of duty ended they returned to our community and became outstanding, dedicated leaders. I said to myself after the ceremony, “what a great group of former local students that loved this area so much that they returned and are leaders and giving of themselves so much to honor our heritage. Speakers: Grand Marshal Michael Stahlman - Adjutant, Judge Advocate and a trustee of Lt. Perry William VFW Post 3025: Master of Ceremonies William Glasser - Jr. Vice Commander of Lt. Perry William VFW Post 3025: Dan Holser - Commander of Lt. William VFW Post 3025: Scott Gallerie - Commander of Sgt. Walter A. Adams American Legion Post 1021: Bill Hoffay - Chairman of the Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park Committee: Flora Fasoldt Town of Sand Lake Supervisor. These individuals are dedicated and a credit to the Town of Sand Lake. I am sure all attendees felt the same pride as I did for these hard working individuals and their organizations for an outstanding Memorial Day Service. ~Thank you one and all - Richard Tallman, Averill Park

Today we are families from all over Rensselaer County and beyond, and from all walks of life.

Our Pastor is the Reverend James Hulihan, and along with him, we invite you to join us in communion and in the worship of Jesus Christ. Worship Services are on Sunday at 11:00am, with Sunday School at 10:45am. Do you want to introduce your child to the world of music in a fun-filled environment?
