JOHN WINDOVER ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY for POEST. SUPERVISOR
Building Sand Lake’s Future!

SCHODACK ISLAND PARK
I am happy to announce my candidacy for Supervisor in the Town of Poestenkill. As a lifelong area resident, I feel I can bring a fresh perspective to the town. As a resident, we need to encourage new business in our community while maintaining the small town character that we enjoy today. I think it is important to give you some information on my family, experience and community involvement. I have been happily married for 23 years to my wife Ginna, a local area Pharmacist. We attended APHS together and have been together ever since. I have 2 Boys, Jay 13 and Troy 10. I grew up in the town and attended Poestenkill Elementary School. I also attended the College of St Rose studying Business Administration. I have been employed by Allstate Insurance for nearly 18 years as a Senior Auto Damage Adjuster. I have maintained an excellent reputation for fair and honest claims settlements. I am licensed and bonded as NYS Auto Damage Adjuster. I am actively involved in the Poestenkill Fire Company completing over 200 hours of NYS State fire-fighting training being certified as an interior fire fighter. I routinely respond to alarms as a fire fighter; I enjoy helping people when they really need our assistance. I help organize the annual car show fundraiser which helps the fire house provide a Children’s Christmas party. The party is open to every child 12 or under in the town. I have been involved in Cub Scouting in Poestenkill for 8 years, the last 5 years as a Den Leader. Our scouts will be becoming Boy Scouts early next year. I am also just completing my term on the Twin Town Little League Board of Directors late this year. I have been responsible for 107 players and 30 coaches and have really enjoyed little league, as I played twin town as child at the same Poestenkill Fields. I feel my extensive community service record and dedication to our community makes me qualified to help lead Poestenkill into the future. ~Submitted by John Windover

DIMARTINO AND MATTERS: STRONG ETHICS REFORM IS CRUCIAL FOR OVERHAULING TOWN OPERATIONS East Greenbush town board candidates Deberah DiMartino and Mary Ann Matters are calling for a thorough reform of the town ethics law, calling this reform a crucial step in the overhaul of town operations which will lead to deficit elimination and property-tax cuts. “After almost two years of rebuffing the town board minority’s push to include financial disclosure as part of the new ethics code, the town board majority ‘s recent proposal continues to make a mockery of ethics in government by watering down, and even omitting, several key provisions of the ethics board’s original proposal,” said Ms. DiMartino. “A key premise of any ethics law is simple: to protect residents from elected officials who would seek to influence the appointment of family members to fullor part-time jobs, or the award of contracts to family members. An ethics code should be crafted in a manner that discourages the creation of jobs merely to accommodate the hiring of family members, requires that job openings be openly posted in a newspaper, and encourages the hiring of only the most qualified applicants,” continued Ms. DiMartino. “I would like to see the majority hold a public hearing and consider the original ethics proposal recommended by the town ethics board,” said Ms. Matters. “This document was a balanced document that fairly addressed the issues of hiring and financial disclosure by town board members. If elected, Deb and I promise to bring the ethics law back in front of the board in January, to review what has been enacted, and to amend those sections that are weak. Three specific examples of amendments would require that the town board certify that: (a) the duties of the job to be performed by a relative of a town board member are essential to the town; (b) that resumes were duly solicited through the town’s official newspaper; and (c) that the board member’s relative who is hired possesses the best qualifications for the job. By the board majority casting aside these provisions, it suggests that some town board members are entitled to provide their relatives with preferential treatment with regard to filling town jobs,” continued Ms. Matters. “This is the third leg of the reform stool that East Greenbush needs for financial recovery. There are plenty of East Greenbush residents interested in working for the town and local contractors interested in providing services to the town, all of whom have no ties to town board members. By reforming the ethics code, we will ensure that the best interests of the residents, not those of board members’ families, are kept in the forefront when making decisions for East Greenbush,” said Ms. DiMartino. “Ethics, proper budgeting, and financial reform are essential to restoring East Greenbush as the preeminent town in Rensselaer County. With dedicated employees making sure that proper financial and budget practices are followed, there is no doubt in my mind that we will eliminate the deficit and begin to cut property taxes for our hardworking residents,” concluded Ms. Matters. Please e-mail Ms. DiMartino at email@example.com, or Ms. Matters at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions or comments. Paid Advertisement

TOWN OF NORTH GREENBUSH PUBLIC VISIONING WORKSHOPS
TOWN OF SAND LAKE COMMUNITY BUSINESS SURVEY
The Town of North Greenbush is asking for the public’s help in creating a Main Avenue Redevelopment Plan and will be holding two community workshops. The first workshop will be held on October 1st from 7-9 pm at the North Greenbush Town Offices located at 2 Douglas Street in the Annex room, and will focus on the Hamlet’s “Vision” for revitalizing Main Avenue in Wynantskill by looking at the area’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT). The second workshop will be held the following night on October 2nd from 7-9 pm, also at the Town Offices, and will bring the community’s visions to life with plans and drawings depicting your SWOT for Main Avenue from the first workshop. The study will result in a redevelopment plan that: creates new investment and job opportunities, improves housing along the corridor, creates a viable and walkable corridor, provides beautification efforts to the area, protects the water quality and Wynants Kill, creates new recreation opportunities, and creates opportunity for the revitalization of abandoned, vacant, and underutilized properties. Residents, business owners, and community stakeholders are all invited to attend these workshops to learn about the plan and share their ideas and vision for Main Avenue’s future. This is your chance to help shape the future of your community and your attendance is very important! Bring you middle-aged and high school-aged children too…it’s about their future!

Letter to the Editor: In the spring, the Town Board approved funding for the Laberge Group to work with Town officials to develop needed recommendations for changes to the outdated Town Zoning Code. This is a great long-overdue project. However, little has happened since these funds were allocated. Many residents are interested and have a huge stake in the outcome of this effort. Given this fact, we would request you consider the following strategies to assure openness of the process: 1) Minutes – Publish the minutes to all associated meetings within two weeks of each meeting. 2) Public Participation – When the public hearings take place, involve key stakeholder groups such as the Town’s Agricultural Advisory Committee, neighborhood groups, the business community, county & state leaders and other interested parties. The Birchwood Estates Neighborhood is a neighborhood group that recently petitioned the Town (94% participation) to zone their community residential rather than commercial. The Town should involve these folks in the process. 3) Use of the Town Website – This is a great communication tool that could be used to post minutes to all of this work group’s meetings and hearings. Currently the latest Planning Board meeting minutes posted was for a meeting that occurred 25 weeks ago. This is inexcusable. Our requests are simple and in the interest of open government. What our Town looks like in the future is a concern to everyone and is heavily dependent on the results of this effort and the Town Board’s approval of Study recommendations. It is our hope that this Study will do much to assure the realization of the Guiding Principles (Comprehensive Plan) of economic growth, preserving the historical character and rural nature of our community. We would ask that you respond to us in writing as to how you will address our three requests. Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider a participative process which will have an impact on all residents of this great Town. ~Tony Kirby, President: Schodack Planning & Development Association 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.

Letter to the Editor: The Schodack Democratic Party held their caucus Saturday, September 24th. Although they nominated two candidates to run for the office of Councilperson on November 5th, they did not come up with a candidate for Schodack Supervisor. This leaves a situation that is not good for our town as an election should give the voter a choice. As many residents know, with the support and help of many volunteers, I ran for that office six years ago because in that election there also would not be any choice. The volunteers insisted I run as a write in candidate which resulted in a narrow defeat mainly because the old voting machines were difficult to do a write in and some machines broke down at the peak voting time. The new voting machines are much easier to write in a name when voting. I have given serious thought about once again seeking the office of Supervisor by way of a write in. If I do go for a write in, it will be to give the voters of Schodack a choice. Time is short and a decision will have to be made soon. I have decided to ask the residents for their opinion, and if it is affirmative, would they once again volunteer to help with the campaign? I would not ask for any financial contributions, but assistance would be needed in just letting the voters know they have a choice. I think I am qualified for the position as I have attended the majority of meetings for well over 60 years and have successfully operated a farm with the help of my wife Sue and our children for over forty years. If anyone wants to once again help give the people a choice at the voting booth for the office of supervisor, please contact me at 669-7184 or Eeee me at <Rlemka@nycap.rr.com>. Regardless, whoever wins the election, it will give us the people’s choice. Thank you for your interest in our town. ~ Ray Lemka (Lifetime Schodack 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.

GRAFTON COMMUNITY COOP ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS Are you interested in purchasing a wide variety of Gluten and dairy-free products, grains, coffee, tea, bulk organic nuts, baking supplies or spices? If so, you may enjoy becoming a member of our community buying club. By doing so, you support your local community, get to know your neighbors, and get great access to natural and organic products without driving all the way to Albany to shop. Our group orders on a monthly basis from United Natural Foods and Frontier National Products companies. Currently, 10 families participate and we are looking for a few more members to join our group. The monthly job is simple: roll out of bed early every 4th Saturday to meet the delivery truck at the Grafton Community Library on Rt. 2 in Grafton, help unload and divide the members products and gather up your order that you placed on-line 1 week prior. It usually takes less than an hour. Our coop also has access to personal care items, cleaning products and pet supplies. Also, we can introduce you to the local farm community.

“HORSE THIEVES” TO MEET The 164th annual meeting of the Sand Lake Association for the Mutual Protection Against Horse Thieves will meet on Friday, September 27, 2013, at 6:00 pm. The meeting will convene at the Lakeview Inn in Averill Park. Attendees who wish to dine may choose from the menu. The Sand Lake Association for the Mutual Protection Against Horse Thieves was incorporated by an act of the Legislature of New York on April 7, 1849. The purpose of the association was and continues to be a community effort to protect horses. Since there seems to have been very few horse thieves to be captured in the past few years, this gathering has become a fun, joke-filled time of camaraderie. Anyone wishing to become a member is welcome. Owning a horse is not necessary. The once in a lifetime membership fee is what? $2.00? When was the last time the sheriff called for a posse to search for a horse thief? A search of historical records is necessary. So come, join a long-standing tradition of the historic Town of Sand Lake-which included Poestenkill and portions of other nearby towns. ~ Submitted by, Karen Clickner Douttiel

Speaking in favor of the proposal will be Ken Pokalsky, Vice President of Government Affairs for the New York State Business Council. Speaking against it will be Robb Smith and Demi McGuire of the Coalition Against Gambling in New York State. Jill Nagy of the League will moderate the discussion. This promises to be an informative and lively session, so bring your questions and plan to attend! Written information about all six ballot propositions will also be available.

RCTA ANNOUNCES FACEBOOK PAGE Letter to the Editor: I recently created a Facebook page for the Rensselaer County Taxpayers Association to give residents an opportunity to express their concerns about runaway spending and oppressive taxation at all levels of government. It’s a place where fiscal conservatives can collaborate with like-minded individuals everywhere. We have no membership list or dues. Just give us a LIKE, and you’re in. (www.facebook.com/ RCTA.NY) The RCTA’s membership has always been a mix of Democrats and Republicans with one thing in common - fiscal conservatism. We focused on what united us, not what divided us. When I first joined the RCTA almost 20 years ago, its President was Jim Gillespie. Jim was the organization’s heart and soul. He arranged our meetings, managed our membership and published and distributed our monthly newsletter until his sudden and tragic death several years ago. While the RCTA has been dormant since his passing, I think Jim would be proud of all of us who have continued to fight for taxpayer rights through individual efforts. It’s time to project Jim’s vision to a whole new level. On the front page of one of our earliest newsletters many years ago, we featured photos of residents holding our sign while standing in front of their homes. The sign read: “PLEASE DON’T TAX US OUT OF OUR HOME”. I am sure I have a copy of that newsletter somewhere in a dust covered box in my attic, but I’m hoping you might have easier access to one, or are yourself one of the homeowners we featured. I would like to post it to our Facebook page. Going forward, I want to see as many property owners as possible sending us photos of their property with a sign that features the amount of annual taxes they are being forced to pay. So, if you attend your school board or town meetings, and have something to say about them, post it on the RCTA Facebook page. If you need a sounding board or a place to vent frustration over the taxes you are paying and the government’s liberal spending, share it with the rest of the community. You are not alone. ~ David Crawmer, www.facebook.com/RCTA.NY 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.

Pet Adoption of the Week PUGGY - Possible Pug & Chihuahua Mix. She is a delightful gal. She was owned by an older lady who died. Puggy & her companion Crystal were then dumped in a high kill gassing shelter where they huddled in their corner confused, scared and shaking. Puggy and Crystal were loved by their owner their whole lives until their beloved owner suddenly passed away. They would love to be adopted together but it is not mandatory. Because neither Puggy or Crystal were raised with children, a home without children is in store for them. Puggy & Crystal miss their owner's lap to sleep on and her hand to stroke them.
If you would like to meet Puggy to possibly adopt her, Contact: Marge at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherry @ 393-0755

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK JULIANNA KOLAKOWSKI ~SCHOLAR ATHLETE~ by: Megan Regan
by Riley Ludwig The season is in full swing for Averill Park athletes! The football team was motivated to win and traveled to Bishop Maginn on Friday, 9/20. The first half was close, but the Warriors opened the game right up during the second and got the W, winning 34-15. Senior Jake Mosher scored three touchdowns. Senior Chris Arnold and junior Nick Haase also scored a touchdown each. The Warriors will next play at home against Cohoes at 2 PM on Saturday, 9/28. This is the Homecoming Game for our Warriors, so be sure to come and cheer them on! The boys’ soccer team played three games in four days! On Tuesday, 9/17, the Warriors traveled to face Burnt Hills. It was a close game, but the Warriors fell short, 1-0. The boys shifted their focus to their home game on Thursday, 9/19, against Ballston Spa. The game ended in a tie, with each team scoring two goals. Seniors Wesley Clayton and Owen Nuss each scored a goal. The boys then played the following day in Niskayuna. It was a tough battle, but the boys fell short to Nisky, 5-0. The Warriors will travel to Shen on Saturday, 9/28, to play at 11 AM. Good luck to you guys! On Tuesday, 9/17, the Lady Warriors soccer team hosted Burnt Hills. The ladies played a tough game, but couldn’t get the win. The game ended in a score of 4-1, but senior Kelly Donnelly had fourteen saves! The ladies traveled to Ballston Spa on Thursday, 9/19. The ladies, after losing some tough games, finally got their first win! The ladies scored four goals to top Ballston Spa, 4-1. Senior Jordan Tymeson scored her first goal of the season and junior Caitlin O’Shea scored three of her own. The girls ended their week by hosting Nisky on Friday, 9/ 20. The ladies fought hard again, but ultimately lost, 4-0. The Lady Warriors will next play at home on Saturday, 9/28, at 11 AM against Shen. Come out and show your support! I’ll end with volleyball, with the team playing two games. They took on Burnt Hills on Tuesday, 9/17, at home. This was a highly anticipated game, seeing that Burnt Hills has been undefeated for years, and the ladies played really hard. Unfortunately, they couldn’t end Burnt Hills’ winning streak and lost the match, 3-0. However, the girls redeemed themselves on Friday, 9/20, when they took on Catholic High at home. They ended the match in three sets and ended the week on a positive note. The ladies will play in a tournament this weekend and I wish them the best of luck! Feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions! Go Warriors!
We are onto our third week since the scholar athlete column began this fall, and our next honorable student at APHS is Julianna Kolakowski! This school year Julie is partaking in the New Visions Program for Scientific Research and World Health at UAlbany and has a 95 GPA. Julie has been noticed for her good work ethic in school and great efforts on the Girls Outdoor Track team. She has participated in Outdoor Track since 7th grade, began Cross Country in 8th and did Indoor Track in 9th. Now, in her senior year, Julie is co-captain of the running team, where she runs mainly 3000’s (1.8 miles) and 1500’s (1 mile). Julie is always staying active during off season, working as a counselor/coach for a triathlon camp, which consists of swimming, running and biking. Along with her counseling job, Julie also took college courses at University of California Santa Barbara this past summer. Julie explained she finds her inspiration through musicians such as Mod Sun and The Used because “they follow their dreams and do what they love”. When not listening to her music, running the roads or studying for school, Julie loves attending concerts, hanging out with friends, life guarding at the YMCA, traveling, tie-dying clothes, and of course, eating watermelon! Finally, Julie shared with me what being a scholar athlete truly means to her, “Being a scholar athlete means I have a good balance between academics, athletics and a social and family life!” Best of luck to you Julie with the many adventures sure to come! I hope you have a successful rest of the year! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

TIMOTHY’S OFFERS TAI CHI CLASSES As the new school year begins for children and grandchildren, are you ready for a new challenge for yourself? Or are you looking for an hour of calm in your busy schedule? St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church, 470 Winter Street Extension, North Greenbush, offers two classes each week in the ancient Chinese practices of tai chi and qigong. The classes are on Tuesday evenings, 7-8 p.m., and Wednesday afternoons, 3-4 p.m. The classes are identical; students can choose whichever day suits their schedule. Tai chi is often referred to as “mind/body exercise.” Its slow, gentle movements are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. It has been found beneficial for people with arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and other conditions. The “mind” component of tai chi practice promotes calm and mental balance. Qigong practices are useful for enhancing the flow of qi, the body’s energy. Both practices are fun and interesting social activities. Instructor Pam Martin of Wynantskill has been teaching for over four years, and began teaching at St. Timothy’s last January. Newcomers are welcome to the class anytime. Be sure to wear flat shoes or sneakers and loose-fitting clothing. Call 701-4628 to register.

IN REFUSING TO NOTICE On Sunday, September 29, 2013, the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will lend understanding to Luke 16:19-31 where in Jesus tells the parable of the rich man and the poor man Lazarus. It’s with this parable that Jesus clearly warns us about the sin “In Refusing to Notice” the persons around us who need our attention, our compassion, our love. It is this passage which helps understand that any original act of kindness and love is extended perhaps forever, as those who are helped by others do the same to those whom they notice are in need. Join us and learn how you can’t become a part of this chain of loving response if you never take time to look beyond your own cares and concerns. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-School-Building, 43 Church Street (Route 20), in the village of Nassau. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church begins worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the intersection of Church Street and Route 9J, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant.

MESSAGE FROM THE SAND LAKE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE To all residents who qualified for the Partial Exemption for Senior Citizens With Limited Income under Real Property Tax Law 467. This exemption is income based and is calculated on a sliding scale. The maximum amount of income is established by Local Option - County, Town and/or School District. This means that the County Legislature, Town Board or School Board can pass a resolution establishing the maximum amount of income necessary to receive an exemption. Rensselaer County and the Town of Sand Lake have set the income levels between $29,000 and $37,400. In brief, if the owner’s combined income is equal to or less than $29,000 the exemption is 50% of the Assessed Value. The exemption decreases by 5% for each additional $900 in income. There is no exemption if income exceeds $37,400. The Averill Park School Board has kept the exemption between $27,000 and $35,400. Therefore, some senior citizens with limited income do not receive the same level of exemption on their school tax bill that they receive on their Town and County bills. This was incorrectly stated in the May Newsletter from the Averill Park School District. If you have any questions, please feel free to call my office at 674-2026 ext. 24. ~ Judith Goodyer, Sand Lake Assessor

The following information was provided by Sharon Martin Zankle, Brunswick Town Historian: Sometimes a government uses a drawing or “seal” to tell people what it stands for and to help identify its property such as stationary, equipment, publication or signs. The seal has a design that is unique and might show something about the organization’s history or what it thinks is special. The Brunswick Town Seal was created and drawn in 1989 by Mr. Burton Miller who lived in Brunswick and was a member of the Town Board at the time. Mr. Miller wanted to the Town Seal to tell people about Brunswick’s beautiful landscape and history. Water in the foreground represents the Town Beach and Park and the streams called the Poesten Kill and Quacken Kill. A barn represents Brunswick’s long history as a farming community. The church represents the fact that churches were the first community organizations founded by early residents of Brunswick. The hills stand for the beautiful landscape that all enjoy. The mountains behind the hills remind us we can see to the nearby Adirondack, Catskill and Taconic Mountains from certain places in the town. ~ by Marvin Bubie, Marvincan be reached at Mnobooks.com
THE PAST; THE PRESENT: THE FUTURE Written by Ronald Berti
****** NEWS FLASH ******* Letter to the Editor: The Averill Park School District has sent out a letter for proposals from realtors to relist the school building for sale. The School Board has decided to live in the past. It seems the School Board is unable to think outside the box and we the taxpayers must pay for their lack of foresight. How much good money must they expend after bad before reality dawns on them that: NOBODY WANTS TO BUY THE SCHOOL!!!!!! Juxtaposed to the archaic thinking of the School Board was the Letter to the Editor in last week’s Advertiser by Town Board member Mark Cioffi. Mr. Cioffi correctly stated that it would be a financial burden on the Town if the School were to be transferred to the Town without a viable financial plan for the occupiers to pay for the upkeep and maintenance of the building. It was never the intention or the desire of the Committee to “dump” the building onto the Town without first having created a fiscally responsible plan so that the Town does not inherit the costs of the building without having the benefit of offsetting income. The Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Cioffi and Supervisor Fasoldt for giving of their time to help us in this matter. In The Advertiser dated September 12, 2013 on page 5 was a Letter to the Editor from Kylee Mueller. Kylee is a student at Averill Park High School. As part of a language assignment, she wrote her letter entitled, “Time for Change”. The theme of her letter is that we as a Community need to look forward and not just view older things as merely useless relics of the past. Here are some excerpts from her letter that shows wisdom beyond her teenage years: “Just because the school is old and needs extra maintenance, does not mean that the school is useless.” “A Recreation center in my opinion would be a great idea. I know for a fact that everyone in the area could benefit from this. We could have workout rooms, childcare, and more courts for different sports.” “Averill Park has a drug problem and this could lead high school students, adults, and even the younger kids into a better path for life.” “I believe that this building is a great opportunity and cannot be put to waste. I feel as though the younger generation would benefit to this which is really important, because you have to be young before you grow up and this would lead us into a better future.” From the mouths of babes, come pearls of wisdom. It is not too late for the School Board to learn from one of its students.

NASSAU VILLAGE BOARD THANKS... Rain, rain go away! Mother Nature decided to unleash 3.6" of rain upon the Village of Nassau during the afternoon of September 12, 2013. Village streets as well as the state highways became impassable, residential homes and basements filled with water and the Senior Housing complex required evacuation. The Village Board would like to thank Rich Elder for coordinating and assembling the resources needed to mitigate the situation; the volunteers of the Nassau Fire Department who worked vigorously to pump out basements and maintain road closures; the Nassau Ambulance staff for evacuating, housing and returning residents of the Senior Housing complex and other locations in the village; Town Supervisor Fleming and Highway Superintendent McCagg for their offer of Town resources; Rensselaer County Emergency Management Response for assisting in the efforts; and especially the Village of Nassau Highway Department (Tony Tafur and Jay Devlin) as well as the Police Department (Officers Kenneth Fuchs and Daniel Bunney) who worked tirelessly to reopen village streets and maintain the safety of the residents. We apologize if we left anyone out, it is not intentional. ~ Submitted by, Village of Nassau Board of Trustees

The action centers on Truvyâ€™s beauty parlour and the women who regularly gather there. The story begins on the morning of Shelbyâ€™s wedding to Jackson and covers events over the next three years, including Shelbyâ€™s decision to have a child despite having Type 1 Diabetes and the complications that result from the decision. There is also a glimpse of the unlikely friendship between Clairee and Ouiser; Annelleâ€™s transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl and then to a revival-tent Christian; and Truvyâ€™s relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother Mâ€™Lynn, and Shelbyâ€™s medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.

Wes Allen, a resident of Hidley Road in North Greenbush died last fall. I didn’t know him, but people who did, tell me that he and his wife Jennie would sell vegetables, pumpkins, corn stalks and other goods from their home. I have often driven along Hidley Road and wondered whether there was any connection between Wes Allen and the Hidley family who populated the area beginning in the late 1700’s. In reading his obituary, it seems that he did have a connection with the Hidley family. Wes’ mother Myrtle Allen was a Hidley by birth. I’ve traced the family back to Johannes Heidle who emigrated from Germany and settled in Greenbush by 1769. He leased a 211 acre farm from the Van Rensselaer extensive land holdings on what is now Hidley Road. He had three sons who eventually divided the land between them. Through tracing deeds, I believe his son Michael lived in what was to be Wes Allen’s house. Michael Hidley (1773-1856) was the grandfather of the famous local artist Joseph Henry Hidley who did several landscapes of area scenes (mostly Poestenkill), and also did a portrait of his aged grandfather. No doubt the artist visited Michael at the Allen/Hidley house. The house itself was probably built in the late 1700’s and was occupied by Michael and his young family. The floor plan and interior structure indicate the house was built in stages: the first stage was a modest home for a young family; the second stage probably around 1830 when Michael’s son John was starting a family and later additions were added by future generations. In the early 1900’s, Myrtle Hidley married Harrison Allen, a farmer and general contractor from Sand Lake and they became the owners of the house. This is where Wes Allen spent his life. Lately, I’ve spent hours climbing around the attic and fighting cobwebs in the basement trying to learn more about the architecture of this house and through this try to imagine how the families might have lived. I obtained some family pictures, some were family portraits, some of Allen family gatherings, and some unidentified houses, probably in the area. I didn’t know Wes Allen, but I wish I could have talked with him about his heritage. If only the ghosts could tell their story.
