Alpacas of Maggie’s Brook Farm is a 28 acre familyowned and operated Huacaya Alpaca farm located in beautiful Upstate NY, just 15 minutes East of Albany, NY, in Rensselaer County. We began our journey into Alpacas in 1999 when my husband saw these beautiful creatures on the discovery channel. We then ran to the computer and typed in and that was it for us. My husband Michael had some knowledge of farming from being raised on a farm with many different animals. We have also been breeding Pekingese dogs for the past four years. With this knowledge behind us, we began by dedicating ourselves to its mission of purchasing excellent breeding stock. As we located and purchased our first bred female and maiden female from a farm that also shared in our commitment in excellent breeding stock. We then anticipated their arrival in May 2000. Everyone adjusted smoothly. We had an excellent support team throughout the alpaca community and a knowledgeable vet. These Superior bloodlines have helped us become very successful in the alpaca industry. We are both farming full time. We are now proud to offer these bloodlines for outside breeding’s at very reasonable prices. Please visit for a list of our Herd Sires and award winning Bloodlines. Our Mission is to breed Happy, Healthy, and Reproductively Sound Alpacas with dense, full coverage, uniform crimp, soft handling fleece with luster. This will include excellent conformation with great substance of bone. Also, we will add Presence, Character and Calm to the Touch Alpacas. They will come in a variety of colors. We will be true to our customers and offer ongoing support, Great Prices, and packages to fit your lifestyle.

Give your child an edge this back-to-school season and see the results for life.

MATTERS AND DIMARTINO: EAST GREENBUSH SHOULD SEEK FISCAL-STRESS ASSISTANCE FROM NEW STATE BOARD TO HELP IN TOWN’S FINANCIAL RECOVERY East Greenbush town board candidates Mary Ann Matters and Deberah DiMartino are recommending that the town take advantage of an innovative program offered by the state’s newly created Financial Restructuring Board that is designed to aid fiscally stressed municipalities. This program allows financially troubled localities, like East Greenbush, to apply for a comprehensive review by the Financial Restructuring Board, to seek its recommendations on corrective action, and to adopt those recommendations. With the town’s property tax rate already considered high, East Greenbush’s unusually low fund balance automatically makes it eligible to participate in the program. “With the town’s current budget deficit and “junkbond” status still hanging over residents’ heads, this program would be ideal to help reduce the fiscal stress of the town, bring its finances back into the black, and set the tone for future town-board action so that East Greenbush’s dismal condition doesn’t return,” said Ms. Matters. Following application by a town, the Financial Restructuring Board may obtain information on its finances and operations before conducting a fiscal evaluation. The Financial Restructuring Board would then make recommendations to the town board on ways to improve the town’s fiscal stability, policy decisions, and delivery of public services. As part of its recommendations, the Financial Restructuring Board could offer grants or loans to the municipality through the Local Government Performance and Efficiency Program as an incentive to implement the recommendations. “Although we continue to suffer from the failed fiscal practices of past administrations, which are still embraced by the current town board majority, East Greenbush should capitalize on this state program that appears to be tailor-made for the town; we should not squander the opportunity,” said Ms. DiMartino. “The prospect of East Greenbush rising from the fiscal ashes can be dramatically improved through its participation in this valuable program. With the State Comptroller already having declared the town as being “significantly” stressed in terms of its finances, having an additional set of eyes reviewing the town’s fiscal practices, as with the Financial Restructuring Board, is a good thing,” stated Ms. Matters. “This represents one more positive step towards aggressively restoring proper fund balances, eliminating the deficit, and allowing us to lower property taxes for our hardworking residents,” concluded Ms. Di Martino. Please e-mail Ms. Matters at, or Ms. DiMartino at, with any questions or comments. Paid Advertisement

MIKE BOTTILLO ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR E. G. TOWN COUNCIL My name is Michael Bottillo, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the residents of East Greenbush. I have resided in town for the past 19 years with my wife Kathleen and we desire nothing more than to continue to build upon the positive interactions and many wonderful experiences we’ve had in our community. I am currently employed as an IT Specialist with New York State Higher Education, and have separately worked on projects for Blue Shield of NENY, Waldenbooks and General Electric. I also own a small lawn care service based in East Greenbush. I was appointed to the East Greenbush Planning Board several years ago and have enjoyed my ability to positively influence development in town. Over the years I have coached and served as a board member for East Greenbush Pop Warner. I am a graduate of La Salle Institute, Class of ’79, and Albany Business College in ’84. If elected, I have several goals for the Town of East Greenbush I would like to see in the coming years; • Encourage more business development throughout town to grow the tax base and alleviate burden on property owners • Further stabilize town finances and build upon the State Comptrollers positive outlook and recommendations for a continued recovery • Finish the improvements to the sewer facility as recommend and accepted by DEC • Continue to upgrade roads, parks and infrastructure throughout town Working with the current town board majority, I believe we can progress forward and achieve great things for East Greenbush. As a hard working individual, I will continue that work ethic for all East Greenbush residents. I ask for your support for Town Council on Election Day, November 5th, on the Democratic and Working Family Party lines. Thank you.

Greetings and best wishes to everyone in the City of Rensselaer. As Rensselaer’s representative to the County Legislature, I am happy to report to you on the actions taken by the Rensselaer County Legislature at the September 11, 2013 legislative meeting. The meeting is the second one to fall on September 11 since the terrorist attacks of 2001. Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid gave remarks about the tragic events of that day and the legislative chambers again featured a flag noting the attacks, with the slogan “Never Forget”. I was honored to lead the chambers in a prayer dedicated to those lost in the attacks, and those lost in the subsequent War on Terror. We will strive to never forget, and always remember the price for our freedom. Many residents have noticed the work along Columbia Turnpike, where a sewer connection is being established between the county substation on Riverside Avenue and the Regeneron Pharmaceuticals plant in East Greenbush. The sewer extension is helping Regeneron expand and in the process, create 300 new jobs. The County Legislature played a crucial role in the expansion, and looks forward to future growth by Regeneron in the coming years. I enjoyed some visits to the Rensselaer Area Senior Center, including a Johnny Cash tribute show, and was pleased to see attendance is on an upswing. Thanks to Gloria Fonda and center staff for working hard to provide a safe and comfortable place for our seniors to gather during the week. Fall brings a return to scholastic sports like football. I would encourage residents to attend a Rensselaer Pop Warner or Rensselaer High School Rams football game, and best wishes to the players, cheerleaders, coaches, parents and fans. Resident homeowners who currently receive the Basic STAR property tax exemption are required by the state to re-register this year to continue receiving the exemption in 2014 and beyond. Registration is continuing through Dec. 31, 2013 and can be accomplished via the state website Residents can also meet with state representatives at the Rensselaer County legislative chambers at 6 p.m. on October 2 to re-register.

LOVE LUTHERAN CHURCH Pastor Henry continues with the fourth installment in the Christian Freedom sermon series with an examination of Galatians 3: 23-4: 7. Paul has proclaimed that we are free! – no longer enslaved to the tyranny of the Law. But what does that mean for us NOW? Perhaps the question should be: now that it is no longer about what I must do to earn eternal life, what will I do now that eternal life has been given to me? The answer lies in our relationship with God – the relationship of a son. We are all welcomed into that relationship of faith, which properly belongs to Christ, and has been given to us. Please join us this Sunday for the fourth part of the sermon series: Christian Freedom. Love Lutheran is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush. Worship begins at 10 AM. Please go to our NEW Web Site – – for more information and directions, or call 477-8685.

Dear Averill Park Community Members: Points of Interest: A letter writing campaign has begun to ask our elected officials to repeal the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA). Though initially described as a “one-time” reduction in state aid, the GEA is now entering its fifth year. It was intended to close the gap in the state budget by compelling districts to utilize and consequently deplete district reserve funds. This loss of state funding has caused the deep cuts we have experienced since its inception. We are asking that you please send a letter to our elected officials, examples of which are on APCSD’s Advocacy Page. You will also find more facts about the GEA, as well as addresses of our state legislators. There has been a great deal of concern and discussion regarding the Sand Lake School Building. While we appreciate the suggestions made regarding the building, knowing all of the details is paramount. Please visit the district website for more information. A community group has approached us with a grant from the US Lacrosse Foundation to completely fund a Boys’ JV Lacrosse team. All monies necessary to run the program would come from the grant and the community group. The BOE plans to consider this at the next board meeting. If opportunities present themselves to enrich the lives of our students without adding to our budget, please bring them forward. We are happy to consider all opportunities. The next board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8th, at 6:30 pm at Averill Park High School in the Large Group Instruction room. Please visit the district website at: http://www.averill for additional information. Sincerely, Superintendent Hoffman & Board of Education

ERRATUM In John Windover’s political article that was run last week, John omitted a word in the section of the announcement that stated, “the party is open to every child 12 or under in the town”, it should have read, “the party is open to every fireman’s child 12 or under in the town”.

BOTTLES & CANS FOR BREAST CANCER The Rensselaer Eagles Aux. #4446 located at 851 Broadway in Rensselaer is collecting refundable bottles and cans for Breast Cancer. You can drop them off at 851 Broadway in Rensselaer or call for a pick up at 436-4446. The Ladies Aux will be doing this until October 16, 2012. Please help us to help those who are afflicted with this Disease to have another Birthday! PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE is our MOTTO.

FRUITS & VEGGIES CAN HELP FIGHT CANCER Cancer affects the lives millions of people across the globe. When detected early, cancer becomes a significantly less formidable foe, as survival rates for cancer patients whose cancer was detected early are much higher than those whose initial diagnosis came after the disease had progressed into its later stages. But early detection isn’t the only way to beat cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, a healthy diet that includes at least 21/2 cups of fruits and vegetables each day can help men, women and children lower their cancer risk. Fruits and vegetables that have the most color, such as those that are dark green, red, yellow, and orange, tend to have the most nutrients. Fruits and vegetables are typically low in calories as well, which helps people maintain healthy weights. That’s a significant benefit, as the ACS Cancer Prevention Study II showed significant increases in cancer occurrence in people who are the most overweight. The link between cancer and obesity is especially strong with specific cancers, including breast cancer after menopause and cancers of the colon, rectum, pancreas, kidneys, esophagus & endometrium. What’s more, studies have shown that obese men and women have a harder time battling cancer upon diagnosis. So while a diet rich in fruits & veg etables can help lower cancer risk, such a diet may even make it easier to battle cancer if diagnosed.

Andrea is visionary who approaches problems through a long lens. When her son was young, she identified the conflict between spring little league and travel soccer. She formed an indoor winter-league soccer team, knowing that in the future, soccer and baseball would not conflict. That team produced many high-school soccer players, serving both the kids and the community well. She brings that same sense of looking to the future to the 9&20 challenge. She will push for community redevelopment with planning strategies that bring people, beauty and business back to the town center.

We are Mary Ann Matters and Deberah DiMartino, and are seeking support for seats on the East Greenbush town board by promoting an agenda that, above all else, puts our fellow residents first. The essence of that agenda involves ushering in a new era of fiscally responsible and transparent government to East Greenbush. Whether the issue is related to the town’s finances, the ethical standards for town officers, or following the prudent advice of others, we will deal with it by ending practices of the past that have only served to perpetuate inefficiencies, raise property taxes, and place self-benefit and personal convenience over the interests of the residents. With the enormity of improper deficit spending and junk-bond status still plaguing the town from past administrations, we will be vigilant in budgeting and spending responsibly, will end the practice of nepotism, and will refuse to fill positions that are not critical to town operations. By employing both a business-sense and a common-sense approach to governing, we will work with Supervisor Langley to: approve a town ethics code that will keep government honest and protect the taxpayers; revitalize the 9&20 corridor, its road surface and functionality, and its businesses; and pursue more opportunities for cost-saving, shared services with Rensselaer county government. Together with Supervisor Langley, we will implement policy changes that will correct the town’s current shortcomings, improve the lives of the residents, and restore East Greenbush as the pre-eminent town in Rensselaer County. We will put residents FIRST! Please e-mail us at (Mary Ann) or Paid Ad (Deb) with any questions or comments.

Mike Bottillo and Cheryl Vallee have distinguished themselves as the most Qualified Candidates for East Greenbush Town Council Far too often in local politics candidates enter races with name recognition and little else. Unfortunately taxpayers get unqualified representation offering nothing in terms of experience to properly administer government services. Fortunately, this year Independents Cheryl Vallee and Mike Bottillo, running to fill two vacancies on the Town Council are fully qualified to hold public office in our community. Cheryl Vallee is the Executive Director of a Capital Region not-for profit organization which focuses on advocacy and supportive services in the community. As the Executive Director, Ms. Vallee has the responsibility of planning, preparing and managing the organization’s annual budget and resources within the budget’s guidelines. In addition to the overall responsibilities of running the organization, Ms. Vallee has experience with fundraising planning and implementation, as well as researching and submitting grant proposals. A major part of running an effective Municipality is the ability to interface with the State Legislature. Ms. Vallee has lobbied successfully before State lawmakers to secure funding. This is the kind of professional experience the Town Council needs and our taxpayers expect. Mike Bottillo has been an IT specialist with NYS for nearly two decades. As an IT specialist Mr. Bottillo has made a living in the fast paced technology field, adapting and adjusting to the needs of his job. Additionally, Mr. Bottillo is a small business owner in East Greenbush and understands first-hand the challenges faced by our local business leaders. Mike also serves on the East Greenbush Planning Board, interacting with taxpayers, developers and business leaders to direct East Greenbush in a positive direction. Bottillo’s well rounded experience and level of expertise will serve the Town Council extremely well. Taxpayers, let’s not lose focus of what is truly important by falling back on name recognition, or who you are friends with; lets elect representatives that are professional and possess the necessary skills and experience to protect our tax dollars and continue to make East Greenbush a great place to live. paid advertisment

by Riley Ludwig Averill Park athletes worked hard leading up to Homecoming Weekend! On a sunny Saturday afternoon, 9/28, the football team faced Cohoes for their 2013 Homecoming Game. The stands were filled with fans bleeding blue and gold, and the boys delivered a great performance! Senior quarterback Chris Arnold scored three touchdowns for the Warriors. Senior Jack Ainsley scored a touchdown early in the game, as well. The game ended with the Warriors on top, 48-20. Congrats to the guys, and good luck on Friday, 10/4 at Mohon! The boys’ soccer team played in three tough games this week. They played on Tuesday, 9/24, at Guilderland, but fell short to the Dutchmen, 3-1. Then, they hosted our rival Columbia Blue Devils on Thursday, 9/26. It was clearly a tough game because it ended in a tie, with neither team scoring. On Saturday, 9/28, the boys played a morning match at Shen. The boys fought hard, but fell to the Plainsmen, 2-0. The boys will play next on Tuesday, 10/8, at Colonie. Keep playing hard, guys! The Lady Warriors soccer team also played in three close games. They hosted Guilderland on Tuesday, 9/24. It was a tough game, but the ladies fell short, 1-0. On Thursday, 9/26, they traveled to face Columbia. Senior Kelly Donnelly had another game with double digit saves, saving 10! This was another close game, but the ladies couldn’t get the W here, with the score ending in 2-1. On Saturday, 9/28, Shen came to face the Warriors, and though the girls still played hard, they fell short, 1-0. You can catch the ladies when they play at home on Tuesday, 10/8, against Colonie. The cross country team had a great time last weekend! The team traveled to New Jersey to compete in a race at Six Flags Great Adventure. The team ran through the Wild Safari area of the park. All athletes performed well, and can now say they’ve run a race through a theme park. I’m glad you all had a great time! Girls’ volleyball played in three matches and a tournament last week. They went 2-1 for the week, with wins against both Guilderland and Ballston Spa on Tuesday, 9/24, at home; and Wednesday, 9/25, away, respectively. They lost to Columbia on Thursday, 9/26. Congrats on a great week, ladies! Senior golfer Kyle Ernest shot a 35 against Guilderland, with 14 putts, 2 fairways, and 6 greens. Senior Noah Glanville shot a 40 against Columbia, with 4 greens, 4 fairways, and 17 putts. Golf isn’t an easy game, so kudos to the guys for their performances! Great job to all teams and athletes!

Kyle Ernest is our APHS scholar athlete of the week! Kyle has been playing golf since he was 8 years old and has now made it to his senior year in high school with an impressive balance of academic and athletic success. Kyle has a 94.5 GPA and is taking Tech writing, Statistics, Physics, Government, Economics, EDD and Gym his final year. After high school, he plans on attending a four year college for business. While at college, Kyle will continue playing golf, but just for fun with friends and family. Kyle’s grandfather encouraged him to get involved with golf, Kyle states, “I grew up playing with him- he took me to clubs and made it fun, while teaching me the rules of the game. Not only that, but he has taught me how to respect the game. When I finally started beating him, it was a great accomplishment.” Kyle played on the high school JV team in seventh and eighth grade, and the Varsity team ever since he started high school (9-12). So far, the Averill Park golf team is 2-8 and Kyle’s best for the season is one under, a score of 35. His overall average is a 41. Kyle and the team practice four times a week after school at the Burden Lake Country Club, and when he’s not playing golf; he is supporting the other Averill Park sports teams, always going to soccer and football games. To prepare for the season, Kyle plays all summer and his hard work has paid off; he has been MVP for his sophomore, junior and senior years and placed eighth in the suburban council tournament. He is anxious for sectionals Tuesday, (10/1), where he hopes to qualify for the next round. Not only does Kyle play golf, but he plans on trying out once again for the Varsity basketball team this winter (has played basketball ever since ninth grade). Lastly, Kyle shared with me his appreciation for being selected scholar athlete, “It means a lot that I can be recognized for keeping my academics up while still participating in sports.” Best of luck, Kyle, with the rest of the season and your final year of high school! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

DAVE HASS ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR POESTENKILL TOWN BOARD I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the Poestenkill Town Board. My three main goals for the Town Board are: 1. Keep taxes low. 2. Provide outstanding service to Town Residents, and 3. Protect residents’ liberty, privacy and property rights. I moved to Poestenkill with my wife, Martha, in 1991 where we raised our three boys, Max, Lucas, and Alex. I am a member of the Planning Board, Treasurer of the Poestenkill Business Association, and the founder of the Poestenkill Farmer’s Market. In addition, I initiated ongoing discussions with National Grid to bring natural gas to Poestenkill and I successfully petitioned the Town Board to pass a resolution condemning the NY SAFE Act. I am a local business owner who founded and operates Hass Manufacturing Company, a Poestenkil l-based valve manufacturer. I am also founder and baker at Poestenkill Baking Company and a programmer of, an online package tracking website. I will bring my 27 years of business experience to the board, helping to keep taxes low yet still provide the essential services that residents expect from the Town. For more information, please check out Thank you.

DOMINIC J. JACANGELO FOR POESTENKILL TOWN SUPERVISOR For the past four years, I have had the privilege to serve as Poestenkill Town Supervisor. I have served the residents of Poestenkill with only one purpose in mind, “Do what is best for the Town and its residents.” Once again, I ask you for your support on Tuesday, November 5, 2013. I worked diligently, in a bipartisan manner, to complete the water district project on time and on budget ensuring that the liabilities of the district would not spill over to other taxpayers in Poestenkill. I have fully implemented an energy efficiency program in Town Hall, installing energy efficient lighting and windows. In partnership with Sue Horton, our Town Clerk, we have established an electronicsrecycling day, preventing hazardous material from threatening our environment. With our new town website, every member of the Town Board may communicate more effectively with our residents. When Hurricane Irene hit, Highway Superintendent Toby Chadwick and I mobilized our team to get to work immediately to help town residents and get our roads reopened. Our efforts resulted in getting 100% reimbursement from the State and Federal governments for our disaster recovery efforts. I personally worked with volunteers to help those who were most impacted by the storm. Most importantly, everything we have done, we have done so without an increase to the town overall tax rate. With your support, we can achieve more for our town and our quality of life in Poestenkill. We must work to bring natural gas service to the residents and businesses in Poestenkill. We must begin work on a new disaster response plan and a way to affordably bring better ambulance service to town residents. A town park is now achievable without an adverse impact to the tax rate. Lastly, working with my partners on the Town Board, June Ross and David Hass, we will continue our efforts to make town

government as open, transparent and communicative as possible. I thank you for your past support and hope that you will support me once again as your Poestenkill Town Supervisor. ~ Sincerely, Dominic Jacangelo
