C. WOODROW HONORED AT WNE UNIVERSITY Chad Woodrow of Poestenkill, received the College of Engineering Dean’s Academic Achievement Award during Convocation at Western New England University. Woodrow is a sophomore majoring in Mechanical Engineering at the University. The award is presented to two students within the College of Engineering entering their sophomore year that have the highest cumulative grade point average after two semesters of full time study and have demonstrated a high regard for scholarship.

Located in the heart of East Greenbush for 12 years, Dr. Lowe is dedicated to helping others achieve their wellness objectives by combining skill and expertise that spans the entire chiropractic wellness spectrum. He is committed to bringing you better health and a better way of life by teaching and practicing the true principles of chiropractic wellness care. Patients receive only the finest quality of care through the use of modern chiropractic equipment and Dr. Joseph E. Lowe technology. Dr. Lowe first visited a chiropractor in his early 20’s in search of relief from low back pain, headaches, and neck pain that radiated into his shoulders, arms, and hands. Chiropractic care not only gave him the relief that standard medicine and physical therapy could not, he also discovered a career and calling that he truly aligned with and believed. Practicing chiropractic is not Dr. Lowe’s job, it’s his passion. He has a burning desire to help others reach an optimal level of health, and each patient is cared for as if they were a member of the doctor’s family. Dr. Lowe is knowledgeable in numerous chiropractic and rehabilitative techniques. He is well versed and experienced in treating infants and children, athletes, expecting mothers, the elderly, disc problems, scoliosis, arthritic conditions, degenerative problems, and neuropathies. Dr. Lowe uses a “whole person approach” looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and makes whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Lowe is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health. Through October 12th, call Lowe Chiropractic at 479-2038 for the 12th Anniversary New Patient Special! This includes a comprehensive chiropractic consultation and evaluation for only $17! (Normally costing up to $150) Dr. Lowe is offering this special because his purpose is to help as many people as possible to improve their health and live pain free. He also doesn’t want finances to get in the way of anyone seeing if chiropractic care can help them. 3 reasons why Dr. Lowe recommends you call to receive October’s $17 New Patient Special. #1) Health problems get worse over time if not treated. #2) You would enjoy life more if he can improve your health and eliminate symptoms. Feeling great and being happy is what life is all about. #3) He’s not going to waste your time or money. If he can’t help you, he will let you know and refer you to someone who can.

DEAR RESIDENTS OF EAST GREENBUSH: Primary Day has been moved to Thursday, September 13, 2012 in order to allow all people to remember and reflect on the tragedies that occurred September 11, 2001. As a member of the military activated to Ground Zero shortly after those horrific events, I am deeply thankful that this date has been set aside to remember all those tragically lost that September day. As a veteran, lawyer and active volunteer in the East Greenbush community, I am asking for your vote in the Conservative, Independence and Working Families primary for East Greenbush Town Justice. Our Town Court plays an instrumental role in the community and deserves a Town Justice who is committed, independent and with a strong background in criminal law. Qualifications are essential for an impartial and fair Judge. I invite you to review my qualifications at Walking door-to-door in our community has afforded me the opportunity to meet many of our residents and hear their thoughts on our town. I look forward to connecting with more of our residents each day as I continue to work my way in and out of each neighborhood within the Town of East Greenbush. Thank you for your consideration and support for today’s primary. Polls are open from 12 noon to 9 PM Thursday September 13. Sincerely, Jude Mulvey

THE FIGHT IS REACHING ITS PEAK!! Letter to the Editor: Residents of the Town of Nassau have been fighting a battle for almost 9 years. This David & Goliath story may yet have a happy ending. Although many people think Troy Sand & Gravel’s massive Nassau Quarry near Pikes Pond is a “done deal”, this is far from the truth. It does not have the required local permits it needs to operate. DEC did not protect the area’s air quality & aquifers, not to mention unique habitats, birds & animals, in its slap-dash, unprofessional review, but we can preserve this rural residential area. NOW is the time to contact the Nassau Town Board via email or snail mail and express your concerns about the endless streams of noisy, dirty diesel trucks rumbling by Crooked & Glass Lake & through the hamlet of Sand Lake for a hundred years that will result from the operation of this hard rock quarry if it is permitted. It can be stopped, but it must be done NOW. ~ Karli Dwyer, Averill Park

The Academy of Christian Leadership (ACL) announced that it will suspend operations for the 2012-13 school year. A number of factors led to this decision. According to Board President Pat Cavagnaro, “Our student numbers have been declining since 2008 and our families are struggling financially. The immediate reason to close for a year is low enrollment. But the decision was The 2012 Graduating Class about more than money.” ACL began in 2003 for 7-12th grade students and uses a ‘classical’ Christian curriculum. Some students have done better with this challenging curriculum than others. “Nine years ago we found it interesting that many of our homeschooled students did better than the public school students,” said Cavagnaro. “But since then, the gap between has widened to a chasm. Something is changing in the public schools, and we need to reevaluate our program based on that change.” This year the school hired Dr. Benjamin Hart as Assistant Principal to help evaluate the program and decide its future. Dr. Hart immediately recognized that to continue with the rigorous junior and senior high program, the school needed better-prepared incoming students. “We made a decision to start a grammar school, but we started about six months too late to make it viable.” Issues of transportation have plagued the school as well. Like many rural schools, ACL depends on public school bussing (students within 15 miles of the school qualify for free bussing). “While some students are from Rensselaer County, the bulk of our students come from Columbia County,” according to Cavagnaro. “Being so far to the north, we struggle each year to keep Hudson and Taconic busses.” This year the school looked at buying two former Ichabod Crane buildings in order to position itself farther south, but neither worked out. ACL is going to take the next several months to re-evaluate, and take a hard look at mistakes made in the past. “We plan to hold forums with parents and decide how to best serve the community. As a Christian mission, we are here to help those in need,” said Cavagnaro. Dr. Hart is staying on to head up this effort. We’re working with consultants to implement best industry practices. We expect to start the 2013-14 school year stronger than ever.” To contact the school about participating in a forum over the next several months, go to the school website at ACL is a non-profit 501(c)3 education corporation.

The District 2 Report










As legislative representatives of District 2, including the towns of East Greenbush, North Greenbush and Poestenkill, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the August 14, 2012 legislative meeting. In recent years, the county entered into an energy performance contract that saw more efficient energy systems, including heating and cooling, installed in county facilities. The first year savings saw the county receive a higher than projected savings of over $250,000. At the August meeting, we approved an expansion of the energy performance contract for the county sewer district. We anticipate there will be a future savings derived from this contract and will report back on the progress of this work. With regard to the county sewer district, the Legislature has extended an offer to assist the Town of East Greenbush in providing sewer services. East Greenbush has a sewer system that is current at full capacity. We are supportive of entering into an inter-municipal shared services agreement with the town to ensure sanitary sewer services and to protect town taxpayers. We also sponsored a resolution supporting introduction of updated technology for the county 911 system. Next-Gen 911 would allow callers to transmit pictures, video and text message to the county call-taking center. We asked for a report on implementation of the system. There recently have been a number of incidents stemming from the use of a new drug known as bath salts. State legislation introduced did not comprehensively address the issue and a county law banning the sale of bath salts has been introduced. Bath salts are sometimes sold in stores and falsely identified as bath or cleaning products. The Legislature also honored Meghan Dougherty of East Greenbush for earning top honors in the national finals of the Pitch, Hit and Run contest. Meghan’s performance earned her family a trip to watch baseball’s All-Star Game in Kansas City. Legislators also passed resolutions declaring September 2012 as a month of remembrance to reflect on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, recognizing National POW/MIA Day on September 21, and recognizing September 30 as National Gold Star Mother’s Day. Residents are welcome to contact us at our legislative offices by writing to the Rensselaer County Legislature, 1600 7th Avenue, Troy, NY 12180 or by e-mailing us via the official legislative website at

NewTurnpike, Patients Accepted 739 Columbia East Greenbush New Patients Accepted OH WELL! Letter to the Editor: How much water does an industrial hard rock mine use? A quote from a report prepared for the U.S. Department of Energy by Jim Mavis states that “Hard rock mines typically require water for drilling, and for any associated size reduction facilities. Water consumption can be stated in terms of gallons of water per ton of ore produced. mining/ The DEIS and the FEIS (draft and final environmental impact studies) allow TS&G to produce up to 738,000 tons of rock per year. (FEIS PG 43.) At maximum production, 738,000 tons of rock times 2 gallons of water per ton (see above web site, chart 6.1) equals the need for 1,476,000 gallons of water per year to drill. Crushing, depending on the size of the finished product, uses more water still. So add another 1,476,000 gallons of water as a conservative number for a total yearly usage of 2,952,000. Washing activities are not permitted at this site, but crushing is. Renewal Permit number 4-380-00099/0001. How much water is TS&G planning to use per day? Mr. Clemente said at the Planning Board meeting on 8/30 that he plans to use the water from two ponds on the property—better hope for a rainy summer for the next 150 years (the life of the mine). How about the three core holes on top of the mountain- there is extensive daily data on the amount of water in each core sample (DEIS appendix.) Hint: water flows downhill well. To pump it up from the ponds near the house to the rock face is an expensive project. Does the rock travel to WSL to get washed after crushing, then back to the mine for retail sale? Despite all the talk, there will be damage to our wells, many of which are shallow and/or spring driven. The busiest time of the year for the mine is also the driest time of the year in these mountains. For more information, visit or Come to the Planning Board Meeting on Sept 20th- at St. Mary’s, 29 Church St. in Nassau for public comment. ~ Dianne Applin, 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.

SUPPORTING PRINCIPLES OVER PERSONALITIES Letter to the Editor: I’ve just been thinking about my support for Mitt Romney. I’ll vote for him because I’m fully aware that President Obama believes he’s doing a great job and plans to continue in the same direction. But being against Obama isn’t enough for me to substantiate support for his opponent. I like to support political principles over political candidates. If an individual candidate happens to agree with the principles that I hold dear, so be it. But if I blindly support someone without knowing where they stand on key issues, I may be in for a surprise after they gain office. That’s why so many who supported Obama the first time have sworn not to make the same mistake twice. A candidate needs to be candid. “Hope and change” was way too vague. As of this writing, the Republican convention is a few days away and I hope it provides a detailed biography of this man who promises to chart a course back to prosperity. With what I know of him so far he has the experience. He’s shown the ability to turn feckless bureaucracies into productive teams. He’s diplomatic enough to work with Democrats as his experience as Governor of Massachusetts illustrates. That may scare a lot of conservative voters but compared to Reagan when he was the Democratic Governor of California, Romney actually had the more conservative record. He plans to cut taxes just as Reagan did but that’s only half of the problem. Federal spending is the other half. Reagan’s tax cuts grew the economy but he was never able to get the Democratic Congress to cut spending. The spending issue has reached the point where we can’t kick that can down the road any further. We have to elect a Congress that understands that too. Each of us needs to do our homework. We can’t rely on the old mainstream media to feed us unbiased information. Campaign ads are useless. I suggest Fox News on TV, WGY radio, Human Events or The Washington Times for print media or on the Internet. Be informed. Vote smart. ~ David Crawmer,

purrfect kitty of the month PLEASE ADOPT ME! Isaac is a shorthaired, sleek, black kitty, now 7 years old. He started life as a scared, homeless kitten and was wary of people. He has been at our shelter for at least 5 years! We thought he had a home after we featured him in July, but sadly, that fell through, so we wanted to give him another chance. People pass him by because he is shy and not as outgoing as some of our other cats, but we know that when a person takes time to gain his trust (as we volunteers have done), he is incredibly affectionate and loves to be petted. Isaac is great company for other cats as he is submissive and gets along well with them. Isaac needs a quiet home with people who are patient enough to get to know him. Please consider giving Isaac the forever home he deserves and has waited so long for! As with all Purrfect Companion kitties, Isaac is up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and neutered or spayed. For more information on Isaac, please contact the following Purrfect Companions’ representative: Maryann at 331-2221 or at kitties.purrfectcompanions@ Purrfect Compan15th ions is a non-profit, all volunteer rescue organization.

NAMI RENSSELAER ADDS A FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP IN AVERILL PARK The worst part of having a family member with mental illness is the stigma and loneliness. If we told our family and friends that our loved one had cancer or other serious disease, they would be surrounding us with support, cooking meals, and doing anything to make our life a little easier. When we talk to others about mental illness, it is almost like we said we had a serious contagious disease. No one wants to talk about it and many times, we suffer alone. We offer a place you can talk without judgment and get some much needed support. We understand because we are peers… we all have someone who is suffering from the effects of mental illness. Nothing is taboo and we have lots of information/ brochures to share. SUPPORT IS FREE… You don’t have to “sign up” and you come and go as you need to. Please join as at either location or at both. Our newest location is The Church of the Covenant (the Round Church) on Route NY 43 in Averill Park on the Third Wednesday of each month, starting on September 17th. We meet 6:30pm to 8:00pm. We will continue to hold our bi-monthly Support Group meetings at the SUNYA School of Public Health, One University Place, Rensselaer, NY 12144 on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Again, this group meets 6:30pm to 8pm. If you would like more information on our support groups, or just need to vent prior to a meeting, please call Mary Beth at 588-6949 or Mary at 227-6701.

HE TOLD US “JUST AS IT WAS TO BE” The theme in worship on Sunday, September 16, 2012, at the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches, will be upon Jesus’ speaking openly about what it means to follow him. That conversation will center around the Gospel of Mark 8: 27-38 wherein Mark tells the story of an ordinary journey for the disciples turning in to what becomes a startling revelation. Jesus asks the question “Who do you say that I am?’” and the disciples, present with him, as well as each of us look for our own answer to this important question. In the sermon, based on this Scripture, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will discuss how openly Jesus speaks to his disciples and his followers regarding what is in store for him. Join us and come to understand more fully what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. 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. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church worships at 9 a.m. in its Sanctuary located where Church Street meets Route 9J, one half mile south of the only traffic light in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Worship in both services begins with Pastor’s Gospel message for young folk, after which the Nassau boys and girls move to a Sunday School Classroom for Christian Education; and the Stuyvesant boys and girls remain with their families in worship.

NOVENA An Election Prayer to Mary O most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection. Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God's law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life. Trusting in your most powerful intercession, we pray, Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen (A.Z.)

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never known to fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heaven. Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to answer me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh, Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal, you who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days, after 3 days the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor is granted. Thank you for favor received. C. G.

A CITIZEN’S FRAME “Pittsburgh Will Defeat You” The Sand Lake Observer, Ronald Berti After the embargoes and the asset freezes by the United States against the Empire of Japan because of its aggression in China, Emperor Hirohito approved the plan for war against the United States. Admiral Yamamoto and General Tojo walked down a long flight of stairs from the Imperial Place to their waiting limousines. When they reached the bottom of the staircase, Yamamoto, who had spent many years in the United States as a naval attaché, turned to Tojo and said, “You don’t understand America, Pittsburgh will defeat you.” What he was trying to tell his warlike countryman was that the industrial might of America was like a sleeping giant, and once aroused, it would dwarf anything the world had ever seen. He was right. If one looks at our war production,1940-1945, when we had a population of only 150 Million people and 40% of the workforce were women (Rosie-the-Riveterwas not just a poster girl). It staggers the mind what we did. In 1940, we had the 16th largest army in the world, behind Romania, about 600,000. By 1945, we had 16 million people under arms. By 1945, we had a GDP of 1,474 Billion; Number 2 was Russia at 343 Billion. During the war, we manufactured over 88,000 tanks and self-propelled guns. All combined, Axis production was 52,000. It was the same across the board-Aircraft- USA-324,750-Axis-278,795- Aircraft Carriers-USA-163-Axis-16-Destroyers/Destroyer Escorts-USA-1,916-Axis-86. We got so good at this that Ford’s Willow Run plant in Detroit produced B-24’s at the rate of one every 63 minutes! Henry Kaiser produced 2710 “Liberty” ships in six years, more than one a day. Bethlehem Steel’s main mill employed 36,000 workers in three 8 hour shifts of 12,000 men and women, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Now it is closed. Our politicians, Republicans and Democrats are telling us we can’t reproduce the industrial giant we once had. Are you kidding me? Maybe if we applied some of that computer technology into how to manufacture goods cheaper instead of NFL Fantasy Football or NASCAR games we would get somewhere. This may come as a surprise to some of our politicians, but, steel is still being produced in the world. We still have large deposits of iron ore. Robotic unit trains can transfer the ore cheaply to smelters, and then the ingots to computerized mills for milling into exact pieces for shipment to the end user. Labor has learned from the example in the auto industry, whereby, they now participate in profits instead of driving up wages and benefits and making companies uncompetitive. We can do this. We just need some leadership. Ronald can be reached at: BY
