Letter to the Editor: Just wanted to let those folks who let their (unfarmed) fields grow into meadows know how much the loveliness of those meadows is appreciated. When you take a moment to really look at them, or better, walk along them, their beauty is obvious. Plants not mowed into stubble grow into a carpet of richly textured and colorful grasses and flowers that provide food and shelter for butterflies, moths, bumblebees and myriad birds and small mammals that have their places in the web of life. So thanks to all of you who allow Nature to continue to provide for her own while the rest of us enjoy the lovely meadow views that are the result. ~ Stefanie Neubert, West Sand Lake

FF’S Letter to the Editor: A HUGE THANK YOU to the people mentioned above regarding the Microburst that came through Eastland Park in Rensselaer. We want to personally thank every single one of you guys; the professionalism we saw put us in awe of you guys. It made us proud to see what you were doing right after this storm came through. I was outside tending to my down wooden fence, and checking our shed which was destroyed, and a 22ft pine tree top which came from 80 ft away that landed on our chain link fence. I was approached by Fire FightersDGS crews w/chain saws-right after this event to check our welfare several times over the first few hours, knocking on our doors, making contact over the fence asking us “ You Guys Good?” (We must of got that 5 to 6 times). And to all of our neighbors also, GOOD LOOKING OUT for each other. The DGS crews that cleaned up this past week, also Thank You so much. The Police & Fire Dispatchers at Rensselaer PD, also can’t say enough about you guys (phones going crazy, radio traffic, keeping track of calls for service etc). Cant forget National Grid; they were on scene by 7pm; only lost power for 8 hours. Outstanding Job to everyone. ~ Tom Degan & Sara Torres of Lakeview Ave.

NAMI RENSSELAER IS PROUD TO PRESENT JASON PADEN’S LIFE STORY FREE PRESENTATION: Jason Paden is a Mental Health consumer with a very unique and informative perspective regarding Recovery from Mental Illness. Diagnosed in 2000 with the combination of two of the most difficult to treat mental health disorders - Bipolar and Schizophrenia - his situation could easily have been a “worst case scenario”. His life was extremely difficult, full of challenges and almost ended much too soon. But despite the internal struggles and social pain he experienced throughout his near lifelong illness, he never gave up on his “healthy obsession with being happy”. And it was this drive that led him to constantly research, investigate, learn and apply new coping skills and strategies for improving his life. As a result, today - 13 years later - Jason is well and in full Recovery. Though his illness will always be a part of him, with the information he’s learned - today - he has an excellent, happy, healthy and increasingly productive life as a Mental Health Motivational Speaker and Advocate with a budding new service being offered as a Coping Skills Coach. With his interesting combination of dialog, music and multimedia, Jason will be presenting his optimistic story, summarizing strategies that have been beneficial in his own healing journey, and most importantly, instilling HOPE that Mental Health Recovery is possible... even for a worst case scenario like him! NAMI Rensselaer County, Inc. is proud to bring this presentation to you: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 @ 6:30pm at the School of Public Health, 1 University Place, Rensselaer, NY 12144. Please RSVP: Mary Beth 588-6949;

EXTRAORDINARY STUDENT AT ALGONQUIN MIDDLE SCHOOL There is a beautiful young lady who is entering the 8th grade at the Algonquin Middle School in Averill Park who believes in “Random Acts of Kindness, (her RAK program) her name is Lydia Flynn. Lydia is 13 years old and she is not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well. A little about Lydia: she sings with the Troy Children’s Chorus with the softest, sweetest soprano voice that the angels would envy. She plays her flute in the school band with gusto, always looking to move to a new level and she does not feel any music is too hard to conquer. Lydia has a heart as big as all outdoors, if you are sick she wants to bring you a cup of tea, some flowers from her mom’s garden, and a hand drawn card. If you are going on a trip, she will research the area and find tips for you. When her sister wins an award or receives acclaim, Lydia is happier than her sister. When it comes to animals…well she hopes to be a Veterinarian. Now Lydia has found another way to help someone in need…Lydia has the most incredible long natural curly hair. Women pay hundreds of dollars to get her natural look. She has been letting her hair grow for over a year, and now she wi ll donate 12+ inches of hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program dedicated to crafting beautiful, high-quality wigs that will go to a woman affected by hair loss from cancer, at no charge. One of the most remarkable things about Lydia, is she was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when she was three years old. We all congratulate and applaud Lydia, we are very proud that she is such a selfless teenager, always willing to be of help…if only there were more Lydia’s. ~ Submitted by Darlene Reischuck

This is great news for our residents who are able to keep more of their hard earned money, and I urge all residents to take a look and see if this program can be helpful to them,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PET IDENTIFICATION by Catherine J. Crawmer For the responsible pet owner, there is nothing more frightening than to suddenly realize that the whereabouts of a valued animal is unknown. There are certain steps that you should take that will benefit you if such a circumstance occurs. The most unfortunate and surprising thing is that many people have difficulty describing the physical particulars of their pet to a stranger. Inaccurate descriptions can cause a dog to be passed over due to misidentification. It is amazing how many people will describe their dog as part Collie or part German Shepherd when he, in fact, looks more like a Chow. If your dog looks like a particular breed, describe him as such. His actual mixture is unimportant. Have several good color photographs of your dog. Photograph him from all angles. Be sure to have a picture of him near something of recognizable size so that his actual size will be clear to someone who has never seen him. Take advantage of all the modes of identification available. Too much identification is not redundant. If he loses some of it, he may also retain some of it. Your dog can be identified through a State dog license, a rabies vaccination tag, a tattoo, a microchip, a tag bearing your contact information or a collar with an ID plate bolted to it. A dog having all of these types of ID at the same time is likely to be returned to you. When using ID tags, be sure to include the area code with your phone number. When using a tattoo, be sure to register that tattoo number with a tattoo registry. Check the tattoo periodically to make sure that one or more of the numbers have not faded. Dogs that have a microchip or a tattoo can also have a tag on the collar that says, “I have a tattoo”. “I have a microchip”. How about a tag that says; “If I’m loose, I’m lost. Reward!” This is a good idea, especially for cats, which are commonly seen wandering. If you move, be absolutely sure to change all pertinent identification information. Many dogs with tags, tattoos or microchips are lost permanently because the owner has neglected to inform the registering body. Tags from a previous address can also be useless. When the owner has moved, the time of forwarding letters and phone calls expires in a short period of time. In a year’s time, your old phone number can belong to someone else!

purrfect kitty of the month PLEASE ADOPT ME! My name is Brady and I’m a super-soft, approx. 1 year old male kitty in need of a quiet, loving home. I was living outside and somehow getting by until a nice lady decided to help me. I really encouraged her as I would go up to her patio door every morning and put my face right up to the glass, saying “hey, there’s a hungry kitty here!”. She couldn’t keep me in her no-pets apartment complex, so I’m now with the rescue group. I’m a bit of a “fraidy-Brady” but I’m coming out of my shell now and want to find someone to call my own. I’m a gentle and sweet kitty with potential for a lot more affection if I could just find the right person willing to help me along that path. I am friendly with other kitties and would get along with your kitty too! Please think about bringing me home and doing something nice for a homeless kitty! As with all Purrfect Companion kitties, Brady is up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and neutered or spayed. For more information on Brady, 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. Our adoption clinics are held 12:30-4:00 most Saturdays and Sundays at Petco, Northway Mall, Albany NY. Stop by and see some of our other kitties! We may have one that is just “PURRFECT” for you!

VOLUNTEER HOST FAMILIES OPEN THEIR HEARTS AND HOMES TO NYC CHILDREN Summertime is Fresh Air time for thousands of New York City children who visit volunteer host families in 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada through The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family Program. The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, notfor-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.7 million children since 1877. Volunteer host families open their hearts and homes to New York City children during the summer. Host families live in the suburbs, small towns, or rural areas, and wish to share the simple joys of their communities. Fresh Air children experience simple pleasures like running barefoot through the grass and gazing at star-filled skies. Through the eyes of Fresh Air children, families often rediscover the beauty of their own communities. For more information on how you can sign up to become a volunteer host this summer, please contact Hedy Lowenheim at 518-439-8658 or The Fresh Air Fund at 800-367-0003. Additionally, you can find more information about The Fresh Air Fund online at

IT’S JUST SUGAR, RIGHT? Well, that’s what we’d all like to think. This awesomely delicious substance is something we as humans crave. Why? Because we aren’t suppose to have it…and because way back in the day (like when we were cavemen) it was scarce to find something sweet out in the wild. So when we do find it, we tend to eat it like there is no tomorrow. On top of that, sugar acts like a drug. Your brain gets a “high” from eating the sweets by releasing those feel-good hormones called endorphins, which makes you want to keep ingesting the stuff (FYI - you can also get that same “high” from exercising too!). However, once you’ve gone off the deep end, your body now has to clean up the mess and you usually don’t feel so hot thirty minutes after you devoured that tray of brownies. Now your pancreas is working overtime releasing insulin to balance out your blood sugar, you’ve made your body acidic which leads to inflammation, which leads to disease and other health complications; you’ve wiped out some of that good bacteria in your gut, and you’ve managed to dampen your immune system, so now you can catch that virus that is going around. Kind of a big price to pay for those 10 minutes of “bliss”, wouldn’t you say? So here’s what you do. First, know that 4 grams of sugar equals 1 teaspoon. So that can of soda that contains 30 grams (or more) of sugar is equivalent to downing about 8 teaspoons; yikes! For guidance, aim to keep your daily intake of added sugars (like those found in processed foods) to less than 50 grams. Secondly, sugar is okay in moderation. After all, we get one life so let’s enjoy it (the key is to be healthy enough to do so). That means get yourself a nice bar of dark chocolate and break off an ounce. Lastly, ease your sweet tooth by eating natural sugars like those that are found in fruits and sweet vegetables. When baking, or if you just need to sweeten something up, try pure maple syrup or raw honey in place of refined sugar or (gasp!) the artificial stuff found in the red, blue and yellow packets. When all else fails, ask yourself “Is it REALLY worth it?”

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Is there more to life than this? Do you ever question the relevance of the Bible? Does God exist? Did humans really evolve? Do you know where the different people races came from? Did dinosaurs exist with people? Why is there death and suffering in the world? Was there really a Noah’s Ark and a worldwide flood? How old is the earth? Who determines what is right and wrong? What role does the devil play in my life? Do you ever ponder on questions like these and wish you had truthful answers? Look no further! We have your answers. After this study you will be able to answer all these questions, and many more, with absolute certainty. Join us every Wednesday night through July 31, 2013 at 7:00pm for a casual, relaxed, FREE study titled The Foundations at Connecting Point Church.
