THOMA TIRE CO. CLOSING DOORS AFTER 68 YRS. OF SERVICE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL YOUNG FARMERS Rensselaer County 4-H will be holding their annual livestock auction on Monday, September 2nd (Labor Day), at the Schaghticoke Fair in the judging arena at 7 PM. Come support your local young farmers by attending this auction and consider being a buyer. There will be a variety of animals that will be ready for processing or entering your home flock or herd from market lambs and poultry to dairy replacement heifers. If you are not in need of something for your freezer or field, consider purchasing and donating to the Regional Food Bank. All purchases would be tax deductible. The Livestock Auction started years ago as a means to provide youth with a “real life” agricultural business experience. Participating youth sign a “Quality Assurance Pledge” . This project encourages youth to raise a high quality animal for milk or meat, follow ethical standards in animal care and representation, foster entrepreneurial spirit, increase communication skills, and increase fiscal responsibility. Additionally, youth are exposed to the science behind management practices and handling. For more information on the Rensselaer County 4-H Auction, contact the CCE office of Rensselaer County at 272-4210. Hope to see you on Labor Day at the Auction! CCE is an equal opportunity employer and programmer.

Michael Thoma III & Michael Thoma Jr. After 68 years, Thoma Tire Co. of Nassau, will be closing for good September 28th, 2013. The tire company was started by Michael Thoma Sr. as a parttime business in 1945. I took over the reigns 42 years ago in March of 1971. My son, Michael, came on board after college over 23 years ago and worked side by side with me in growing the business and carrying on its traditions. We three Mikes have always tried to make our motto, “Where Satisfied Customers Return” a reality. Between the service and the ever present free cookies, the business has prospered and sales have continued to increase each and every year. I am retiring to do some of the things I didn’t make time for earlier. I’ll be 68 soon and can use the old joke about “retireing.” My wife of 47 years, Brenda, has always been behind me 100%. She started out doing payroll our first ten years and has continued to do the office and paperwork. She, my son, and my daughter Kari have always been my safety net. Both Kari and my son grew up in the business, and I have always had “jobs” for them both. Thoma Tire has not been a job, but a way of life for us. Our generations of customers who have been so loyal and good to our family will be sorely missed. So many of you never bought a tire elsewhere. You have trusted us, believed in us, and helped us succeed with a small family business. I would also like to thank all the local businesses that have been our friends. We realize we have to stand together to prosper. I have been fortunate to have had many fine employees who were dedicated and loyal. Without them we couldn’t have done it. I have several now that will be looking for new jobs. Please call me if you have an opening or an opportunity. Obviously, we are trying to sell off our remaining inventory. We won’t be ordering anymore tires for “stock”, but will be able to get tires, usually the next day, for your needs. Our hours will remain the same through September 28th: MONDAY - FRIDAY 8:45am - 5:30pm SATURDAY 7:45am 12:30pm. 766-TIRE Again, I thank all of my customers and friends. We wish you well. ~Mike Thoma and family.

EAST NASSAU VILLAGE MAYOR RESPONDS TO FORMER MAYOR Letter to the Editor: I would like to help our former mayor, Bob Henrickson, set the record straight in East Nassau. First, we all owe Bob a debt of gratitude. His service to the community in his roles in village government should be a model for us all. Engaged, active citizens are the most important ingredient for good government. Regarding the end of Bob’s tenure as our DPW Superintendent, he was neither fired nor otherwise “given the boot” or “shown the door”. In Bob’s words at our public hearing before our annual meeting in April, he did not resign, but he stated he could not continue to serve in the DPW role. The audio recording of the public hearing is available in the “minutes” area of the village website(www.villageofeast as are recordings of all our public meetings. We are fortunate to have recruited two very capable individuals to fill the Superintendent and Deputy roles in the DPW and the department continues to support the maintenance of our roads while planning projects that will provide significant improvements in the future. While we appreciate Bob’s contributions of the past and look forward to his continued engagement in our community, we are pursuing priorities set by the current board. Our Village is moving forward in important areas – enhancing infrastructure while improving many aspects of community character and livability – while keeping the cost of government to a minimum (in fact, our tax rate went down this year). It should be clear to everyone that a local municipality cannot (and should not try to) “fix” all aspects of our lives. But we will continue to provide responsive and efficient government as our village has enjoyed since its incorporation in 1998. Feel free to contact me via email at or phone at 712.9635 or, like Bob, come to our monthly meetings (on the second Wednesday each month) or listen to our meetings on our web site. ~ Mitch Levinn, Mayor, Village of East Nassau 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.

EAST GREENBUSH’S FINANCES REMAIN HIGHLY STRESSED Letter to the Editor: Since taking office in 2012, I have attempted to lead the town board majority toward embracing an attitude of fiscal austerity where the town’s budget is concerned, especially in the area of spending. I’ve encouraged a reduction in staffing, where appropriate, and have refused to backfill several positions in the department of public works which, alone, would have saved the town almost a quarter of a million dollars a year; however, as the expression goes, “you can lead a mule to water, but you can’t make it drink.” These repeated savings could have been applied toward reducing the town’s inter-fund debt of over $2 million, which was incurred prior to my administration. If applied toward the debt, which resulted from faulty fiscal gimmicks years ago, it could have been paid off in approximately half the time that it will now take. Although I have done my level best to cooperate with the town board majority, my advice on fiscal prudence has apparently fallen on deaf ears as evidenced by the recent reports from numerous fiscal analysts who continue to warn the public of the precarious state of the town’s finances. This includes the town’s current junkbond status and the danger of bankruptcy. Indeed, the failed fiscal practices of the past persist by the town board majority which has controlled our budgets for nearly three years. This was underscored by the town’s recent financial audit by the State Comptroller, which found East Greenbush to be significantly stressed. Currently, I am pushing hard to complete the independent, outside audit that I initiated last year. Unfortunately, because of the poor condition of the town’s fiscal records going back to 2009, the town has had to hire another accounting firm to re-establish correct financial information so that the auditing firm can complete its work for the town. The residents of East Greenbush deserve the truth about their town’s finances. The willingness of the board majority to distort the true picture is a prime example of how East Greenbush got itself into such dire financial straights in the first place. ~ Keith A. Langley, East Greenbush Town Supervisor 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.

On Wednesday, September 18th, at 7pm Jenny Milchman will be at the Sand Lake Town Library to discuss her book “Cover of Snow” (published by Ballantine) and her long path to publication. Set in the Adirondack Mountains, “Cover of Snow” is a suspenseful first novel about a husband’s apparent suicide and a grieving wife who wants to understand how this could happen. The novel was inspired in part by an experience she had as a child, when a babysitter confessed to Milchman one night that he was planning to kill himself. Because she told her parents when they returned, the babysitter was found, and saved. “That experience was formative,” she remembers. “In years to come, I felt terrified that the decision had been left in my eight-yearold hands.” Milchman eventually started a career as a psychotherapist. And while her expert background influences her writing, so does the work of literary greats such as Stephen King, Gillian Flynn, and Nancy Pickard, who describes Milchman’s debut as “absorbing from start to finish.” Sand Lake Town Library is located behind Town Hall at the intersection of 66 and 43. All are welcome to attend, and light refreshments will be served.

Letter to the Editor: In an effort to downplay the current financial crisis in East Greenbush, in light of the upcoming elections, the Democrat-controlled Town Board attempts to avoid responsibility. In their response to a recent NEWSMAX article in which East Greenbush is ranked #2 on a National Bankruptcy list, the Town Board Majority made excuses for past wrong doing by placing blame on the previous Democrat-controlled administration, and attacked NewsMax and Times Union. The news articles exposed the reality of the financial crisis in East Greenbush by citing facts from the New York State audit. I ask the residents of our Town, which do you consider more credible, A State audit or the Town Board Majority with a recent history of less than adequate practices? Although the current board majority claims not to be a part of these issues, the fact is that their mentors and fellow Democrat committee members WERE involved. The current majority leaders are claiming “the 2010-2012 adopted budgets included nearly $1.1 million to repay the sewer and water funds.” While there appears to be no evidence of this in the budgets, it should be noted that there CANNOT be a budget line to pay debt owed between department funds. No mention or discussion about the interest required when borrowing occurs. I ask our leadership, how much of $2+ million in debt has actually been paid back, as the debt can only be paid back through a surplus of funds at the end of the fiscal year? I urge residents of East Greenbush to read the above mentioned State audit finalized in 2012, and the adopted budgets which are available on the Town’s website. We need to continue to question current majority until we get the answers and remedies we need and deserve. More importantly, we can’t expect the people that dug the hole to get us out of the hole. Do we want a Town Board which makes excuses for past mis-deeds and does not look to the future? ~ Scott Russo, Concerned East Greenbush resident 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.

DEAR CHILDISH, PARTISAN, SCHODACK GOP THIEF Letter to the Editor: How dare you walk onto my property to steal my “Judge Joshua Sabo for Surrogate Court Judge” sign? Don’t you believe in private property and the rights of citizens to engage in free speech? Are you really that unsure of your candidate’s ability to win fair and square that you need to play dirty by stealing signs? That was a rhetorical question. I know how low you will sink. I was a local candidate three times. My signs were routinely stolen and even run over by cars and destroyed. Have your fun, GOP Operative who lives in or near the Village of Castleton. At some point, the people of Schodack will get really tired of your games, secrecy, nepotism, and back-room wheeling and dealing that helps you and yours at the expense of the rest of we Schodack taxpayers. And Schodack Democrats are ready, willing, and able to step up and govern this town fairly. ~ Linda Underwood, Castleton 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.

477-7400 2 Springhurst Drive, East Greenbush (Next to the Sweater Venture) WHAT DO THE MUNICIPAL SYMBOLS OF THE TOWNS AND VILLAGES MEAN? The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. - 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. Each municipality has a charter in which they are granted certain powers including the right to “sue and be sued and to have and use a corporate seal which may be altered, changed or renewed at pleasure”….. The seal of the City of Rensselaer was drawn by Ernie Mann of Rensselaer when he was 12. He included three themes of significance to the City of Rensselaer: Legend, History and industry. Legend: Rensselaer is the home of Yankee Doodle Dandy where an English officer, Dr. Richard Shuckburgh, sat on a well and wrote a derisive tune about the American soldier during the French and Indian Wars. In typical American fashion, the soldiers later adopted the song and threw it back at the British. History: The ship is the Half Moon, Henry Hudson’s ship that docked here in 1609. Industry: The locomotive is a streamlined ALCO #464 built in upstate NY that was serviced at Rensselaer. Amtrak still maintains a service facility in Rensselaer. ~ by Marvin Bubie - Marvin can be reached at

The Anti-Rent War ~Compiled by Ronald Berti The Anti-Rent War was a tenants’ revolt in upstate New York during the early 19th century, beginning with the death of Stephen Van Rensselaer III in 1839. Van Rensselaer, who was lenient and benevolent, was the patroon of the region at the time. The patroons were landholders with manorial rights to large tracts of land in the Hudson Valley from Royal Dutch grants. They used feudal leases to maintain control of the land. Through the sweat of their tenants, the landlords lived in luxury far removed from the hill farms. To further complicate matters, the tenants were expected to travel up to 75 miles to pay their rent in person. The farmers attempted to reach a compromise with Van Rensselaer IV, but could not agree on terms. A Declaration of Independence written by a few farmers read in part, “We have counted the cost of such a contest, and we find nothing as dreadful as voluntary slavery...We will take up the ball of the Revolution where our fathers stopped it and roll it to the final consummation of freedom and independence of the masses.” The first mass meeting of tenant farmers leading to the Anti-Rent War was held in Berne, New York on July 4, 1839. Although there had been a few skirmishes before, the first major Anti-Rent activity took place in the Helderbergs in Albany County in 1839. Modeling themselves after the patriots who instigated the Boston Tea Party, they disguised themselves as “Indians” and caused much grief to law enforcement officials and landlords. The Anti-Renters communicated by blowing tin dinner horns, relaying the sound from farm to farm over the hills and valleys. At the sound of the horn, the “Indians” dropped their work and rushed to a predetermined meeting place. After the arrests of the Anti-Renter leaders in December of 1844,150 delegates from eleven counties assembled in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Berne to call for political action to redress their grievances. Trials of leaders of the revolt, including Dr. Smith A. Boughton (alias “Big Thunder”), for riot, conspiracy and robbery were held in 1845. John Van Buren, the state attorney general, personally conducted the prosecution. Henry Z. Hayner served as a counsel to Boughton. At the first trial, the jury came to no conclusion. During a re-trial in September 1845, the two leading counsels started a fist-fight in open court. Both were sentenced by the presiding judge to “solitary confinement in the county jail for 24 hours.” At the trial’s conclusion, Boughton was sentenced to life imprisonment, but was later pardoned. He died in 1888 and is buried in Union Cemetery in Sand Lake. Ronald can be reached at:

The Rensselaer Plateau is an extraordinary environmental and economic resource of about 115,000 acres that includes the fifth largest forest in New York State and endless opportunities for recreation, tourism, commerce and traditional living. The Rensselaer Plateau Alliance (RPA), established in 2006, is a diverse group of organizations and people seeking to conserve and protect the forested character of the Rensselaer Plateau and the many economic and environmental benefits it provides. A grassroots organization, the RPA is people living in the area who share a common interest in ensuring that future generations will experience and value the many benefits of the plateau. A Community Forest is a community-managed forested area owned by a municipality or another organization that provides benefits to the local community, such as management for timber harvesting, educational programs for adults and children, and recreational opportunities. The Rensselaer Plateau Alliance intends to facilitate the establishment of a Community Forest on the Rensselaer Plateau. The RPA seeks to establish a Community Forest Committee, and is reaching out to community members to request your help in this important venture. A public meeting, co-sponsored by the Zion’s United Church of Christ of Taborton, will be held on Wednesday, September 11th, at 7:00 p.m. at the Zion Church’s Meeting Hall (741 Taborton Road, Sand Lake, NY 12153). The meeting will provide additional information about community forests and the responsibilities of the committee. To establish a Community Forest, the Committee will work together on a variety of tasks, such as identifying appropriate land, creating a plan for longterm management costs and funding sources, and developing educational programs. Attending this meeting would not require that you join the committee, but at the end of the meeting, you will have the opportunity to become a member of the Community Forest Committee. Please consider joining the RPA in this important and valuable community venture. We hope to see you at the meeting. Keep informed of the many activities going on with RPA or the more than 30 Alliance organizations by checking out our new data-base driven calendar of events at http://

Descriptions below will provide parents and students with school bus numbers, approximate time of departure, and the area that route picks up (please note all roads may not be listed). Some bus routes, as well as the bus numbers, have changed to accommodate pupil enrollment and locations. If your child is coming from and/or going to an alternate location for child care, you MUST fill out the Transportation Information form which is found on the district website. Students are strongly encouraged to be at their bus stops at least five minutes ahead of time to be sure they do not miss the bus, and must also be in a location that makes them clearly visible to the driver (on porches, in doorways, in vehicles are not acceptable).

SCRATCHES AND DENTS He sat in his favorite rocker With nothing on his lap, but a book. He remembered rocking his children As he told them any of his many stories. He remembered that, And it made him sad. He looked at the cocktail table he had refinished; Scratches from trucks without wheels and dents from poundy pound hammers Were long gone. He had refinished the table to “better than new” condition; He looked at it and it made him sad. He peered into the dining area, And saw the new “Amish made” dining table. It was perfect…no mars or scratches; No evidence of gnawing by teething toddlers. The new dining table was perfect, But it made him sad. He got up and went to a back window: Looking out, he couldn’t quite tell where the old swing set had been. He had sold the rusted relic for scrap, And he had grown nice new grass Where the scraping from tiny feet had worn out the old. The longing for kids on swings Made him sad. He went back to the rocker with a drink in his hand… Sat down…and suddenly remembered: Both his daughter, and his granddaughter Were pregnant…expecting soon. All he had to do, was wait. Scratches and dents were on the way: Grandchildren…to the rescue !!!. ~ Lloyd Barnhart West Sand Lake

RECYCLING IN THE VILLAGE OF NASSAU Village of Nassau residents who want to join the fight in saving the environment and save a few tax dollars at the same time, there is no better place to start than at home. That is because the amount of trash each home produces increases the Village’s Refuse tax and ends up in a landfill. Follow a few simple tips to conserve resources and save landfill space. In turn, you will be providing a healthier environment now and in the future. Recycling will also assists in maintaining our current Refuse tax. Each village resident can make a positive impact on the environment simply by recycling. Every week County Waste provides curbside recycling pick-up for the following: paper, newsprint, magazines, junk mail, phone books, box board, egg carton, cardboard, tissue rolls; plastic bottles and jugs, paper milk and juice containers; glass bottles and jars, tin, aluminum and bi-metals cans and tops and clean aluminum foil, foil trays and empty aerosol cans. Village Law allows each resident, one 64-gallon pail, per unit; which is not to overflow with trash and the cover must be completely closed. First-time violators will receive written notification about their excessive trash. Second time violators will not have their trash picked-up until they are in compliance. It will be the responsibility of the owner to dispose of the trash properly. Trash bags may be purchased for $2.00 each at the Village Hall for additional household trash, not to include any construction and demolition debris that will not fit into your regulated 64-gallon pail. The Village Hall hours are: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.
