PETER K. GOEBEL APPOINTED COUNTY’S DIRECTOR OF VETERANS SERVICES Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino has appointed Peter K. Goebel as the Director of the County’s Veterans Services Agency. Mr. Goebel assumed the responsibilities of the position on May 26, 2014.

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:

By: David Fleming There are a number of updates regarding the Loeffel Superfund Site on the Town’s website. We post information from EPA as soon as it is available, so be sure to follow this information to remain updated. Towns and Villages across the County have been significantly impacted by recent declines in Mortgage Recording Tax revenue. Many towns are seeing reductions of 50% or more as we continue to face a struggling economy. Nassau was no exception with this recent decline equaling nearly 5% of our tax levy. We continue to work to address the economic stagnation. Once we learned of this impact, we initiated spending reductions. I appreciate the Board’s support of a path of fiscal prudence. Thank you to the tremendous number of people that participated in our recent Tire Recycling Days. This was one of our most successful collections to date. If you missed this opportunity, rest assured, there will be another event in the fall. The Youth Committee has been very active and they are preparing for another “Family Fun Day” on August 23. Please mark your calendar to join us for this fun event. Additionally, please note that registration is ongoing for Nassau Youth Camp. Visit the Town’s website or contact my office for more information. The new trail loop is soon to open at the Mud Pond Preserve. Thank you again to all the volunteers. We are having a naming contest for this new loop. If you would like to send your suggestion, please do so by July 7 to<>. We are currently finalizing lawn restoration for the Burden Lake Sewer District. Some lawns will be delayed a little as we wait for these rains to stop. If you have any outstanding issues from the construction project, please be sure to send them to<mailto:sewers@> or contact my office. If we do not hear from you, we will be unable to address your concerns as promptly as we would like. Again, thank you for your patience during this project. It is important to note that the Board also recently approved the completion of audits, authorized an increase in highway funds, approved additional paving and dust control, and began union negotiations for a new highway employee contract. Additionally, we are always looking for volunteers for important positions on the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals. Please contact my office if you are interested. Thank you.

CHRIS AMADON ~MOST DEDICATED~ by: Megan Regan Chris Amadon has been playing baseball since he was six years old. His father’s love for the sport was what first got Chris started. Now, Chris plays third place for the very successful varsity Averill Park baseball team. To prepare for the season, Chris attended workout sessions at Allstars and worked on improving all the basic fundamentals of baseball. During the season, Chris and the team practice five days a week and Chris continues to work on his game during the weekends. In Chris’ spare time, he enjoys hanging out with friends and

by Riley Ludwig The Averill Park baseball team’s historic season came to an end on Saturday, 6/14. The Warriors made it to the State Final Four after a regional win. They traveled to Binghamton to compete against Rye in the state semifinal. It took place at Union-Endicott High School. To say that this game was a close one would be understating it. The game lasted ten innings that were jam-packed with neck-and-neck play. The Warriors scored a run following an RBI double by senior Sam Beaulac. Then, sophomore David Paul scored on a single hit by senior James Apple. However, these two runs would not be enough to beat Rye, and the Warriors fell short by a score of 3-2. Defensively, the Warriors were led by senior pitcher Tyler Childrose. Childrose pitched for eight innings before being relieved by senior Alex Tomlinson. Childrose had six strikeouts in this game. Although the outcome was not what the Warriors wanted, they should be incredibly proud of their hard work making history at Averill Park High School. The baseball team this year won the first Section II Class A title in the program’s history. Not only did they win the title, but they won it as the eighth seed. The Warriors went on to win the regional championship, which was also the first in the program’s history. It has truly been amazing to watch these men accomplish what seemed impossible during the regular season. I would like to congratulate the entire baseball team on an unbelievable season. I’d also like to congratulate Coach Kahler, Coach Duff, Coach Brown, and Coach Ross, for coaching this team to success. Finally, congratulations to all of the graduating seniors on the team. What a way to end senior year and your high school baseball careers. The 2013-2014 Averill Park athletic year has come to a close. This year, the Warriors brought home three Section II titles in boys’ soccer, girls’ basketball, and boys’ baseball. Congratulations to all athletes on a fantastic year! Well, my time as Chief has come to an end. I would like to thank everyone at the Advertiser, especially Mrs. Regan, for giving me the opportunity to cover Averill Park athletics this year. I’d also like to thank all of you for reading my column every week. It’s been a great experience! I will be attending Ithaca College in the fall. I plan on majoring in TelevisionRadio. I would like to introduce next year’s Chief: Katie Mai! Katie is a rising senior, and I’m sure she will be a great Chief. I hope you all have a wonderful summer. For the last time, as always, go Warriors!

practicing the sport he loves. “My parents are the two people in my life that have inspired me to be the person I am today,” Chris says. For Chris’s senior year, he is taking Physics, Pre-Calculus, EDD, and CIM with an 85.3 GPA. After high school, Chris will be attending HVCC where he will be enrolling in the semiconductor manufacturing course and plans on playing for the baseball team. Chris tells me, “Being a most dedicated athlete means a lot to me. It shows that all the hard work that I have put in throughout the years has paid off.” Congratulations on a great baseball season, Chris, and the best of luck to you at HVCC next year! As for me, I will be attending HVCC next year as well and then transfer to a four year school after two years. Thank you for a great season; I am happy to introduce next year’s author of the scholar/most dedicated athlete column. Her name is Claire Millington. Claire will be a junior next year, and she is very excited to write the column for the next school year. I have no doubt that Claire will do a fantastic job! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

ALL THINGS CREATED On the Second Sunday after Pentecost, June 22, 2014, the Nassau Reformed Church will move its thinking back to the beginning when “All Things (were) Created.” It is in the passages in Genesis 1:1-2:4 that we read of an overflowing of divine creativity within which “God created the heavens and the earth” and everything in it. With focus upon human-kind as the Creatures of the Creator to whom God has called to be stewards of the world, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will stress that we have not created our own existence, and that we serve our God in the world; we are not its owners. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m., in its Chapel on the second level of its Church-School-Building, 43 Church Street, one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. That time will change on July 6 for July and August during which we will worship, beginning at 10 a.m. during those months. Sunday School has taken recess until it reconvenes on September 7; however; young folk are welcomed to worship with their families.

HOST A FRESH AIR CHILD THIS SUMMER This summer, share the beauty of your community with a Fresh Air child while enjoying the pure joys of summer in your own backyard! Thousands of volunteer host families in rural, suburban, and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada open their hearts and homes to New York City children from low-income communities through The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family program. The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Host families open their homes to children who might not otherwise be able to enjoy a summer away from New York City. Fresh Air children experience simple pleasures like running barefoot through the grass, swimming in a cool lake, and gazing at star-filled skies. Through the eyes of Fresh Air children, families often rediscover the beauty of their own communities. “The Fresh Air Fund is an incredible gift for the whole family. We grow and adapt to learn different perspectives that remind us that the simplest things can make a huge difference,” says Michelle, a Fresh Air host. For more information on how you can make summer special for a Fresh Air child, contact Tenniel Hansen at 518-441-4407 or visit The Fresh Air Fund at
