POPULAR IN EAST GREENBUSH Letter to the Editor: As election season draws near, at least 9 candidates will focus their efforts on becoming popular. 5 will succeed in that goal, and bask in their glory for 4 more years. The candidates who get the most votes aren’t necessarily the most reliable. Citizens can’t automatically go to, count on, or trust that person. It doesn’t measure the impact they’ve had on our community, and it is no indication of their character. Popularity is the trophy of the elected, a shiny balloon that will deflate with time. For many, this will be the second year in a row with an intense focus on the popularity contest known as an election. The campaign volunteers, political maestros, town employees, potential town employees, anonymous commenters, and bystanding citizens all wait with baited breath. Some watch as if watching TV while folding laundry. Others couldn’t look away if they wanted to. The realization that the board is one of many cogs in our community is beyond comprehension for some. Like oil in water, they refuse to acknowledge that anything other than the 5 member town board could POSSIBLY have any meaning. While this massive rubbernecking occurs, many will keep the focus on what can be done to improve our community. The focus for these outstanding citizens doesn’t change. For them, the popularity contest is a sideshow, a distraction for the real work that needs doing. The election matters, but it’s not the penultimate. The work will continue despite who sits on the dais, or which set of political brownnosers earn W-2s from our hard earned property taxes. The work doesn’t depend on the board; it never has and never will. Come November, the 5 people who are declared ‘most popular’ will still not be the same people who make our community great. There is a 100% chance that no matter who wins, we will have to make progress in spite of who gets elected. Popularity gets a lot of the attention, but it never has been, and never will be, what makes a community great. ~Nathan Hans, Blogger for The Story of 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.

REOPEN NORTH GREENBUSH BOARD MEETINGS
ACL STUDENTS FINISH STRONG WITH AWARDS & SCHOLARSHIPS
Letter to the Editor: The current majority of the North Greenbush Town Board under Councilmen Desso and Spain have refused to place town board meetings back on Time Warner Cable’s Public Access since they took control of town Government. The previous administration passed a resolution which permitted the meetings to be broadcast and they were until this majority took over. Public participation in government should always be encouraged and the taping of these town board meetings for cable tv allowed busy citizens who could not attend board meetings to keep informed of the business of town government and equally important, how the board members conduct themselves. We have read of the conflicts which have occurred at town meetings and the treatment afforded the Town Supervisor who has apparently had enough and is not running again. But seeing these meetings on tv allows every resident a second chance to catch up despite busy schedules, work loads and kids. It is my hope that this board will do the right thing and begin again the broadcast of town board meetings on public access tv. There are so many issues which have caused conflict in our town from Ethics Boards that never meet, the hiring of politically connected non-resident lawyers in town jobs, to the wisdom of one person holding two elective offices at the same time. Far more issues that I can mention here. It is in the spirit of openness that North Greenbush politicians should allow every citizen the right to see them at work. To do otherwise serves only to permit actions which ultimately serve to diminish our ability to hold government accountable. ~Kim Margosian, Troy

WHAT THE EFFICIENCY OF AVERILL PARK SCHOOLS CAN’T CHANGE Letter to the Editor: My previous letter noted that according to the Fiscal Accountability Supplement of State Education’s (SED’s) School Report Card, Averill Park’s (AP’s) total expenditure per student is well below the average for school districts that SED considers similar to AP. I also reported that AP’s lower EPS has resulted in a school tax rate that is among the lowest of districts with property value and income per student similar to that of AP. In this letter, I want to begin to clarify not only what the findings mean, but what the findings do not mean. Most importantly, AP’s relatively low tax rate does not mean that the school tax is not an economic hardship for many homeowners and businesses in the AP community. That hardship is guaranteed – regardless of how efficient the AP district is – by the way we fund education in America: through a flat tax on local property value. That method taxes lower income property owners in AP at the same rate as higher income owners; and that same rate is only slightly below the average for the 39 Capital Region (CR) school districts. Why is APs tax rate only slightly below the average for the CR even though AP’s EPS is considerably lower than the average for the CR? The reason is that the vast majority of CR districts have greater property value per student than AP. With higher property value per student, a district can charge a lower tax than AP even though they operate less efficiently than AP, i.e., have a higher EPS. So AP’s operating efficiency doesn’t change the fact that the school tax is an economic hardship for many AP households. But while such hardship remains an issue, what should not be an issue – and should never have been an issue – is how efficiently AP schools are run. Compared to other school districts in our region, the answer to that question is: “very efficiently.” To receive a copy of the SED data on fiscal accountability, with web references, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org ~George Falco, 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.

“COME WITH ME!” July 3, 2011 is the third Sunday after Pentecost and the day. On this Lord’s Day, the Stuyvesant and the Nassau Reformed Churches will worship in a theme stemming from Matthew 11 wherein Jesus teaches about the Kingdom. In Matthew 11:1619 and 25-30, Jesus offers a sure, simple, and restful way to deal with the religious experience or spiritual communion. In contrast to the heavy burdens of obligation often associated with spiritual commitment is to “Come to Me.” In a sermon of that title, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will offer that we need to come to a sense of peace as we encounter God. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Church Street and Route 9J, approximately one half mile South of the only traffic light in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Everyone is welcome to worship with the church family at Stuyvesant Reformed and there is a sermon for the young folk each Sunday. The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-School-Building at 43 Church St (route 20), one half mile East of the only traffic light in the village. Everyone is welcome to worship with the church family at Nassau Reformed. Although children are welcome to worship, Sunday School has adjourned until September.

North Greenbush Historical Notes Jim Greenfield, Town Historian
THE DEFREEST HOUSE ON JORDAN ROAD I will never be able to sort out all of the Defreests in North Greenbush. There are 169 Defreests buried in the Bloomingrove Cemetery in Defreestville. The one this article will focus on lived in a still standing house on Jordan Road. This was David Defreest. Just to complicate things he was also know as David Deforrest. David Defreest was born in 1747 and died in 1815. He was called “dicken” David”, a Dutch term, loosely translated as “chubby”. Contemporaries probably called him this so as not to confuse him with his grandfather David who presumably was not so “dicken”. There is some uncertainty as to when David’s house on Jordan Road was built. Typically the house has been dated to 1765 based on a cast iron fireback found in the house with that date. Additionally, there is a 1767 map of the Rensselaer Manor (today’s Albany and Rensselaer Counties) which shows a David Defreest house, but it is located on the wrong side of the road. There are several theories for this. The mapmaker may have got the location wrong or perhaps this was the location of “grandfather” David Defreest’s home. What’s interesting is that modern technology has been able to pinpoint the date the house was constructed through a method called dendrochronolgy or “tree dating.” Basically, this science can date the time when tree rings were formed, in many types of wood, to the exact calendar year. Five samples taken from the first floor joists of the house point to a date of 1771. Although this is circumstantial, “dicken David” married in 1770 and may have built the house for his bride and future family. David didn’t live here his entire life. In 1789, he purchased land on the Wynantskill, near today’s Burden Pond and operated a gristmill there by 1791-92. The property was the subject of a famous court case “Corning v. Troy Iron and Nail Factory” but that’s a future story. This was about the time his son Lucas married and became owner of the Jordan Road property which remained in the Defreest family until 1900. So if you’re driving down Jordan Road, look for the Dutch Bond brick Defreest homestead with a historical marker out in front- it’s also on the National Register of Historic Places.

Girl Scouts is a wonderful organization in our local community! Girl Scout activities can be based on badges, journeys (bigger projects), service projects, or just for fun activities. Troops usually meet once every 2 weeks and there are optional neighborhood programs (ex. Ice skating, ice cream social), and council programs (ex. camping and travel opportunities) that girls can participate in as well. The younger troops tend to focus more on badge work, the middle school troops and high school level troops tend to focus more on travel and fun activities. Also in our community, we have a teen troop (6th – 12th grade) that is dedicated to hiking and only does trips during the year. Girl Scouts is for all girls kindergarten through 12th grade. We are forming new kindergarten troops now so that we will be ready by September. Our neighborhood supports girls attending Red Mill, Bell Top, Van Rensselaer, Goff Middle School, and Columbia High School. If interested, please contact me at: email@example.com.

KIDS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT ST. TIMOTHY’S VBS For more than 25 years, St. Timothy’s has been creating summer magic at its Vacation Bible School. This summer we will help kids learn to see themselves as partners in building a Christian community where teamwork and the use of each person’s special talent is required. We will celebrate individuals who give their time and energy to help others and kids will learn that it’s OK to make mistakes because God isn’t finished with them yet! The “building crews” will rotate through areas at the “construction”, site which include crafts, science, stories and activities. At the Briefing for the Day, we learn our Bible verse through drama and music. Break Time will feature unique snacks and fun outdoor recreation activities. Hard hats will be provided, of course! Kids Under Construction runs from Monday, August 1, to Friday, August 5, from 9-12:30. Our dedicated and seasoned staff will guide children through all the phases of construction! Our Parish Nurse will tend to any construction “accidents.” The cost for the week is $20 per camper and there is a Celebration on Friday evening for families. Call Marilyn Dyer, 326-5276, for information or registration. Hope to see you in August! Check us out at www.sttimothystroyny.com.

Come and join a group who is turning to GOD, JESUS CHRIST and THE HOLY SPIRIT through a Catholic perspective. We meet at 1058 Taborton Road in Sand Lake, but will meet in different areas and at different times when the group is established. We will meet every Sunday, starting on July 24th, from 2PM to 5PM. We all have trials, sufferings and disappointments, but need to reach out to GOD for help instead of blaming or turning away from HIM. Our group will have a weekly meeting to listen to and talk about how to go on in life without our loved one and encouraging each other with the use of the Bible, Catechism, catholic books, intercessory prayer for ourselves, our family and possibly singing a little. So, come and join a group of Catholic brothers and sisters in the Lord while seeking to do GOD’S will for your life even during grief. Have a group of friends that believe as you do. I hope to hear from anyone that is interested; even if you don’t think you may fit in, but are Catholic, and Love THE LORD. We can all fit in if we just try. GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES. For more information, contact Pat Sweet at 674-2147.

Who gets your property, your money and all your belongings when you die? Who takes care of your children when you die? Who makes health care decisions for you if you can’t? Who has the authority to handle your financial and other affairs if you become incapacitated? Reasons to have a will If you die without a will, your belongings will be distributed according to state law. A judge will determine who should handle your estate, including who might take care of your minor children. In a will, you make the decisions that will best protect your family and your property. You can take steps to minimize tax consequences and keep costs and fees down. In most cases, it pays to plan ahead with a qualified professional. As hard as end of life planning can be, it may be harder for your family after you have gone – at the time of their loss, and without your help and guidance. Plan now to help limit the hardship for others at the time of your death. Reasons to have a Health Care Proxy and/or Living Will Who do you want talking to doctors on your behalf if you can’t? You can designate someone you trust and give directions of what care you want. Reasons to have a Power of Attorney If you are incapacitated, you need someone to take certain actions to protect your assets and property. Without a properly prepared Power of Attorney, your family might have to resort to an expensive guardianship proceeding to take care of your financial dealings – bank accounts, insurance, car or house problems or other financial issues. It could be a waste of time to prepare these documents on your own or using pre-paid forms — have an attorney help you draw up and execute them properly. ~Submitted by, Malcolm McPherson, LLP

Our mother, sister, lover, friend fought her fight now at the end. She closed her eyes, lay down and slept, And on this day her flowers wept. Minutes and hours, weeds and seed, she loved each blossom, and met their needs. Carefully chosen everyone Some for shade, some for sun. Perfectly placed amongst each other, Some for height, some for color. However selected, whatever the reason, She cherished them all in every season. With gentle touch, and soft warm voice, She would have stayed if given the choice. Such treasured gardens in which she kept, And on this day her flowers wept. Precious moments spent in the earth, with shovel, and rake, and all her worth. She’d toil and sweat to create new blooms Then bask in the glow of each garden room. The paths are quiet where once she stepped, And on this day her flowers wept.

The Adirondack Bobcats U-15G soccer team brought home the gold following a perfect Princeton, New Jersey JAGS girl’s tournament where over 200 teams participated from nine states on June 18th and 19th. Defensive tenacity paid off as the Bobcats shut down one team after another. The Bobcats won their division without giving up a single goal. Coach Tim Cross smiled as he handed out awards to his players. He had encouraged the girls to ignore the brutal heat and the tournament would come to the team willing to endure the most. After the game, Coach Tim told the players how he is always amazed at their resolve. “We often talk about doing this for each other rather than ourselves, that everyone is accountable. And, success on the field and future plans for soccer don’t exist without a solid academic background. These girls came together from across the capital district, developed deep friendships and trust in one another and made it all work on and off the field.” The Bobcats will move to U-16. Tryouts for next year will be held July 11th and July 19th at Gavin Park in Saratoga. More information about the team can be found at “Adirondackbobcats.org”.

Rensselaer County Legislator Mike Stammel has provided funding assistance to help with the 2011 summer season at the Southern Rensselaer County Boys and Girls Club’s Camp Adventure. Stammel, at left, is pictured with Boys and Girls Club Executive Director Rick VanVorst. Rensselaer County Legislator Mike Stammel has provided funding assistance to help with the 2011 summer season at the Southern Rensselaer County Boys and Girls Club’s Camp Adventure. Camp Adventure is located on picturesque Burden Lake in the Town of Sand Lake. The day camp hosts a variety of activities including swimming, hiking, basketball, softball, volleyball and other games. The 2011 summer season is expected to include 85 campers from throughout southern Rensselaer County. Stammel has been an active supporter of the camp. Like many in Rensselaer, Stammel and his family attended summer camps sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club. As with other community organizations, funding is at a premium for the Club. To help support the 2011 season at Camp Adventure, Stammel provided $1,000 from legislative funds. “The Boys and Girls Club provides great services to youths in Rensselaer and the southern part of the county. Funding is very difficult for community organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and this funding will help make the 2011 summer program at Camp Adventure a reality,” said Stammel. “We hope the summer at Camp Adventure is a fun and educational experience for everyone,” added Stammel. The Boys and Girls Club has operated Camp Adventure for 50 years, and the camp was located on Burden Lake in 1968. Donations are now being accepted for Camp Adventure.

AP GRAD. NEEDS SPONSORS FOR MISS NY USA PAG. My name is Lauren Hagerty and I will be your local representative in the 2012 Donald Trump Miss New York USA pageant in November! I graduated from Averill Park High School in 2010 and currently attend the University of Connecticut as an Allied Health Major, hoping to become a plastic surgeon. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, any donation is greatly appreciated!! Also, be sure to “Like” me on Facebook! www.facebook.com/Lauren HagertyforMissNY2012.

AVERILL PARK FIREMEN TO THE RESCUE At 8 pm on June 17th, at the Sand Lake Center for the Arts, there was an audience waiting to see a show, but there was no power at the Center. At that point the Averill Park Firemen were asked if the show could be held in the firehall. Without hesitation they said “YES.” The show took place, a bit later than advertised, but with great performances and an appreciative audience. I am very grateful I am to be living in a community with these people who were so willing to help out. I’ve always been grateful for these volunteers, knowing the sacrifices they make to help people in serious situations. This situation was not dangerous or life-threatening, but important to the people involved, and the Averill Park Firemen were great examples of kindness, community support and friendship. Thank you! ~Submitted by, Val Kavanaugh
