East Greenbush town Supervisor Keith A. Langley has endorsed town board candidates Deberah DiMartino and Mar y Ann Matters, saying that, if elected on November 5th, they will join him in L to R: Deberah DiMartino, Keith Langley & Mary Ann Matters leading the town toward financial reform and recovery. Langley stated that DiMartino and Matters share his fiscal-reform vision for the town, and are prepared to act aggressively on corrective action that has been long overdue. “Deb and Mary Ann are committed to joining me in taking the fiscal-reform bull by the horns, and restoring the town’s finances,” said Langley. With the financial fate of the town on the line, East Greenbush residents need the assurance that their new town board members will put their interests first. Deb and Mary Ann will do so, unquestionably,” continued Langley. Langley remarked that given the financial liabilities of over $2 million in inter-fund debt and “junk-bond” status that he inherited from prior administrations, Matters and DiMartino are precisely what the town needs to recover from its fiscal nightmare. “Mary Ann and Deb are the two missing legs to a fiscal stool that will support reform and recovery for the town. Unlike the current town-board majority, they will put residents first,” continued Langley. Matters and DiMartino recently recommended that the town take advantage of a program offered by the state Financial Restructuring Board that is designed to aid fiscally stressed municipalities. Langley praised the idea, stating that this is the sort of initiative that will help the town recuperate, both in terms of its finances and its reputation. “This program represents one more positive step towards aggressively restoring proper fund balances, eliminating the deficit, reducing the town’s fiscal stress, and allowing us to bring our finances back into the black,” said Langley. Langley also indicated that DiMartino, Matters and he will enact the strict ethics-law reform that was originally drafted by the town’s ethics board but later dismissed by the current town board majority. “Deb and Mary Ann believe that padding the town payroll with nepotistic appointments has no place in town government,” said Langley. “We will ensure that such improper practices by the current town board majority come to a grinding halt,” continued Langley. Consistent with his zero-tax-increase budget for 2014, Langley believes East Greenbush residents will recognize Matters and DiMartino as the answer to keeping their property taxes in check. “Mary Ann and Deb appreciate the seriousness of the town’s financial condition, and are sensitive to the plight of our hardworking residents,” said Langley. “Taxpayers want and deserve reasons to remain residents of East Greenbush. Together, Mary Ann, Deb and I want to provide those reasons by taking Paid Ad the smart way forward,” concluded Langley.

SCHODACK VOTERS WILL HAVE A CHOICE FOR SUPERVISOR Two weeks ago I wrote that I felt the people of Schodack needed a choice in the race for Supervisor. I admitted I was giving some thought to seeking the office by way of a write-in ballot. After much deliberation, I have decided to at least give the people of Schodack a choice on election day. The new voting machines make it much easier to write in a name when casting your vote. I have received much encouragement in this endeavor and many realize I am seeking the office of Supervisor hoping it will give the people better government. I know the town and how it functions. I know many of the residents and most of the employees, I know many of us feel over taxed and hope to make some changes to bring fairness to all taxpayers. I try to save money the old fashioned way by not spending it unless it is necessary. It has to start with leadership and end with cooperation that could benefit us all. If you, the residents of Schodack, are really concerned as how your town is being run, I encourage you to consider your opportunity to have a choice and write in my name “Ray Lemka” in the space provided on your paper ballot on election day. Please believe I do not need this position but will do my best for you if elected. This can only happen if you make sure your friends and neighbors know they do have a choice. ~ Thank you, Ray Lemka (a lifetime Schodack resident.)

479-0729 4119 US Rt. 20, Nassau • Teresa and Steven are hosting another Wood and Craft Show at The Gallery at Capital Sawmill. We’re hoping for a sunny fall day with a light breeze. Several local artists will join us showing off their crafts. Watch chain saw carvings come to life before your eyes and learn how wood is milled on the portable band saw mill. Featured are favorite locals: chain saw carver/ painter Rich Packer (the man who made the moose), Adirondack Jack and Ryan Daniels turning on their lathes, the ever popular Pam Hibbs scrolling out puzzles and wood pieces with her saw. Select from a fine variety of woods (cherry, maple, oak, walnut, pine & more) and we’ll chainsaw carve a custom sign for you. We can also take custom orders for furniture, mantels, bar tops, counter tops, pergolas and lumber. Feel free to come into the Gallery where you’ll find unique gifts and custom creations by local artists. A jewelry class is starting soon; so sign up or ask to be contacted for the next pottery class. Get a jump on holiday gifts made by the very talented people of our community and surrounding areas. Then, relax, hear some blues and jazz while the leaves fall. There is rustic handmade furniture that is simple, yet elegant; sterling silver or beaded jewelry, beautiful pottery, unique wood turned bowls, many cards (including Leanin’ Tree cards and magnets, fabric and photographed cards-artisan made), scarves, hand-blown glass, stained glass, delicious smelling candles, soaps and hand crèmes and a new line of quilted baby gifts. All at 4119 US Route 20, 2½ miles east of exit 11E off I 90. Look for the moose! Steven will also have some amazing wood sales for those of you that want to make their own gifts. Also this is the time of year to look around your land and determine what needs doing around your home and yard. Arborist, Steven Daniels can professionally prune or take down trees and shrubs for the safety and enjoyment of your family. And with his wife, Teresa Eddy can design and install a new garden bed or replace your overgrown plantings. This has been a wild season of storms, and we can take down that tree or limb so it won’t come down in the wrong place! And if the emergency does happen, call us at 518-479-0729. We’ll be there.

The Joyous Sound Gospel Singers have been spreading the good news for over 20 years. They first started as a quartet. As time went on, others wished to join them. A man by the name of Dave Whitford who recently has gone to be with our Lord put together the group as it is today. They love to spread the good news in the barbershop style in close harmony. In memory of Dave, they are now known as The Dave Whitford Joyous Sound Gospel Singers. This honor was bestowed upon Dave before his death, so he got to know that this new name will be carried on by the group. Join them on October 13th at 6PM at the Wynantskill Reformed church on Main Avenue in Wynantskill. It will be a great evening of song and blessing. There is no charge and a love offering will be taken. For further info., call the church office between the hours of 9AM to 12Noon weekdays at 283-4420 or Lyle Boel at 674-3660.

RON CAMPANO ACCEPTS NOMINATION FOR SAND LAKE TOWN BOARD Sue Mangold and Andrea Smyth, candidates for the Rensselaer County Legislature, along with Town Councilwoman Ginny O’Brien took inspiration from women past and present, who have influenced politics when they visited Russell Sage College and the C-SPAN bus recently. C-SPAN bus is currently touring the country to promote the second season of First Ladies: Influence and Image and the stop in Troy was coupled with an open interview with three women recently elected to the New York State Legislature. The interview focused on the challenges and barriers faced by State Senators Cecelia Tkaszyk and Kathy Marchione and State Assemblywoman Patricia Fahy. “Seeing the images of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and then hearing from State Senator Tkaszyk about the support of other women in her life, was truly inspirational,” said Sue Mangold. “Following in the footsteps of strong, decisive, independent women is a source of pride for me.” Mangold is an East Greenbush Town Councilwoman and small business owner. “Against the backdrop of women as charming supporters in the White House, the panel discussion about the challenges modern women face in the political world, including balancing home and public life, brought the pressure of running for public office into focus for me,” said Andrea Smyth. Smyth is the mother of three children and President and Owner of A Smyth Advocacy, a public policy consulting business. Paid Advertisement

Ron Campano, a life-long resident of the Town of Sand Lake, is pleased to accept the unanimous endorsement of the Republican Party for a Town Board seat in the 2013 election. Ron recently retired from a 37 year career with the New York State Police. His 37 year career included 25 years in Supervisory roles, and 29 years working undercover against organized crime, gun, gang & drug offenders. In the early 1980’s, Ron initiated the establishment of the Sand Lake State Police Barracks and was one of the first Troopers to man the Sand Lake State Police “Sub-Station”, which is still in existence today. While Ron was stationed at the Sand Lake State Police Sub-station, he instituted a successful “war on drugs” program where he worked hand and hand with the Averill Park Central School District and Town Justices. Currently, Ron is volunteering and assisting the New York State Police with the local narcotics problem. “I believe with my 37 years of State Police experience, I can help address the drug issues that we face in our community.” A resident of the Town of Sand Lake for almost 60 years, Ron has served as a volunteer managing/coaching for the Twin Town Little League, Classie Lassies Softball, CYO Girls and Boys Basketball and Youth Soccer. He also served as Scout Master for Troop 25 in West Sand Lake. Currently, he holds the position of Secretary/Treasurer for a Sportsman club in Long Lake, N.Y. Ron and his wife, Patti (Robinson) Campano, both 1968 graduates of Averill Park High School, reside in West Sand Lake. They are parents of Rob and Tricia. “In my personal life, I have realized there are opportunities to step forward and be the one to “volunteer and give”. It is with that same realization that I appreciate your consideration and support. I feel that with my years of dedication to public service, I can bring needed leadership that will improve the quality of life in our community.” ~ Submitted by Sand Lake Republican Party

Last Wednesday, Town Council Candidates Mike Bottillo and Cheryl Vallee attended the Public Workshop presentation at Town Hall which focused on the 9 &20/Route 4 corridor study conducted by Chazen Engineering. The study covered future development standards for the zone as well as improvements and enhancements to the area. The interactive public workshop was designed to solicit public feedback and discussion regarding the long term vision for the area. A main tenet of Bottillo and Vallee’s Town Council candidacy is the rejuvenation of 9 &20. “I was encouraged by what was presented at the Public Workshop for the center of our town” said Bottillo, who as a current member of the East Greenbush Planning Board participated in the early stages of the revitalization of 9 &20. “The former Weathervane just sold and has been cleaned up, the McDonalds site across the street from the Weathervane has been granted permits to become a medical facility, and the old Eckerd’s on the corner of Elliot Road and Columbia Turnpike is undergoing construction and will be the new location of Planet Fitness; we are beginning to see some progress and Cheryl and I are looking to build on that development, and as this study shows, the possibilities are within reach.” Cheryl Vallee shares this positive vision for the center of East Greenbush as a way to sustain existing business and attract new business. “I want to give our residents a town center they can be proud of and a place they can go with their families to shop and eat.” Vallee serves as the Executive Director of a Capital Region not-for-profit organization and understands the benefits of a strong community and the positive impact it has for families. “Next year when 9 &20 is repaved from Route 4 east and we continue to see new growth along our main corridor, we can be thinking about providing recreational opportunities such as bike paths and small parks as a way to connect our neighborhoods to our town center.” Vallee is referring to the 2011 proposal of the Rails to Trails Project. The project has support from Democratic Candidates for County Legislature Suzanne Mangold, Andrea Smyth and Brian Zweig, along with East Greenbush Town Council Candidates Cheryl Vallee and Mike Bottillo. The project would put a pedestrian bike path and walking trail on the old trolley lines that run parallel to Routes 9 &20. Funding for the project would be sought through grants, private donations, fundraising, and amenities fees charged to developers, not through tax increases. “I want to build upon the new businesses that have come to 9&20 over the last two years such as Selenas Cafe, Celtic Knot, Marie Jo’s, Crisp Cannoli and Regeneron and work with the planning department and developers to bring common sense changes that will further increase future business, improve the appearance of 9 & 20 and enhance the Town of East Greenbush in ways the citizens need and want.” Please consider Mike Bottillo and Cheryl Vallee for East Greenbush Town Council and vote on Election Day, November Paid Advertisement 5th from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.

It is a very busy time in Nassau. There is a great deal of progress on a number of projects, and I would again like to thank all the volunteers that are aiding our efforts. On the afternoon of our last Board meeting, the first storm front came through Nassau felling half of the maple tree at the town hall - crashing it through four storm windows, damaging the gutters and generally making a mess. Your highway crew was there within ten minutes and all was cleaned up. We continued preparation for the meeting when the second front hit and sent rivers of runoff through the southern end of the community. What a mess. The damage to town roads was extensive. As soon as the Board meeting concluded, it was a pleasure to be out with Highway Superintendent Fred McCagg meeting with our emergency service partners and offering Town assistance to the Village of Nassau. It was another night of great teamwork and professionalism. Thank you to all that aided those in need that evening. Coincidently, our meeting that night also included a presentation from Cooperative Extension relating to reducing the impacts of severe flooding. The irony was not lost on those present as Route 20 was turned into a muddy creek. During that meeting, we also received a briefing on Burden Lake Sewer District development and the Board unanimously authorized the takeover of the abandoned Vickery Cemetery in Hoags Corners. We also discussed remediation actions at the Loeffel Toxic Landfill and authorized the signing of an agreement with the responsible parties for a road crossing easement for Mead Road. The Board also approved $77,000 in additional highway projects and directed the Town’s attorney to draft a local law to allow a Gold Star Parent Exemption on the local level. We also discussed Municipal Stormwater compliance requirements and changes and authorized the liquidation of surplus scrap at the Highway Department. We additionally appointed Bob Shields and Scott Maguire as transfer station attendants and appointed Carlotta Kinney as a member of the Youth Committee. Please join me in welcoming them. Best wishes for a healthy fall.

It is with great pleasure that I accept the unanimous endorsement from the Republican Party, the Conservative & the Independent Parties to run for a third term as the Town of Sand Lake Town Clerk. I truly enjoy serving the residents each and every day. I pride myself with the friendly atmosphere that my office offers. I have updated the services in the Town Clerk’s office, added hours during the summer and hope to begin to digitize town records. The National Passport Center rates my passport office as one that offers outstanding service. Our service continues to offer night hours and Saturdays. I have lived in Sand Lake for over 54 years, graduated from the Averill Park School District, worked for Audit and Control and Tax and Finance. I was a Truant Officer/Teacher Aide 37 years in the Averill Park School District. I also was the Town of Sand Lake Day Camp Director for 14 years; a job that was very rewarding working with the youth. I also was the Receiver of Taxes for the Town of Sand Lake for 15 years, and during that time, completely computerized the office. My husband Richard and I raised two sons Jeff & Mike and have 4 grandchildren. I have always thought of myself as not a “politician” but rather a “public servant”. I will continue to serve each and every resident to the very best of my ability. Please vote on Election Day for Bill Glasser, Supervisor, Ron Campano, Councilman, Barbara Glasser, Councilwoman & Barbara Biittig, Town Clerk; a group of individuals that are proven public servants that will always work for “YOU”. ~ Submitted by the Sand Lake Republican Party

WHY IS EAST GREENBUSH COUNCILMAN MATTERS NOT SEEKING RE-ELECTION? “FRAUD, WASTE, AND ABUSE” When looking over the primary ballot in the most recent election I noticed that Rick Matters was not on the ballot; it was Matter’s wife. This struck me as odd. Then I looked into it and found a state court decision that held Matters was unable to seek re-election because he admitted to fraud at the NYS Thruway Authority and had to repay $3700 for his indiscretions. The court decision from May 31, 2013 is titled Rick J. Matters vs. William J. Estes. The suit states that Matters used a Thruway Authority phone to conduct political business during work hours. Specifically, it was learned that Matters had made at least 1500 phone calls totaling nearly 100 hours from January 2008-August 2010. In January 2011, Matters entered into a stipulated settlement in resolution of the charges, whereby Matters agreed to pay the Thruway Authority $3,727.60. Matter’s was not required to resign his position as councilman. When Matters went to run this year for re-election he was told by the NYS Northern District Court he could not run because of his demonstrated and admitted failure to comply with Thruway policies and to abide by the terms and conditions of his past approvals. The court further stated that Matters through his misappropriation of Thruway resources which constituted “fraud, waste, and abuse” could not seek office. The judge also stated that Matter’s “abuse of the trust” bestowed upon him not to perform outside work activities during his work hours demonstrated his inability to “separate his political office from his Thruway Authority duties” impacted his decision. After reading this scathing decision and seeing that Mary Matters is running for town council one could easily deduct that Rick is not so easily going to give up the reigns to the town board. Matters was recently quoted saying that she will “continue her husband’s work”; hopefully it’s not the “Fraud, Waste and Abuse of Trust” legacy I now remember. ~ William P. Malone, East Greenbush paid advertisement

SUPERVISOR FLORA FASOLDT - TOWN OF SAND LAKE 2014 BUDGET MESSAGE The 2014 Tentative Town Budget has been prepared by the Town Supervisor and submitted to the Town Clerk for distribution to the Board and citizens for their review, consideration and input. The 2014 Tentative Budget advances the Town’s on-going efforts to contain costs and evaluate government functions for opportunities to enhance effectiveness while simply doing more with less. Again this year, all departments were required to itemize and justify all expenditures - making it easier to plan and prioritize for future needs and costs. The 2014 Tentative Town Budget meets the property tax cap with a 1.6 percent increase in the levy. Most notably, this budget puts an end to the practice of using the town’s savings (fund balance) to offset the cost of everyday operating expenses in the general and highway fund. In addition, revenues are realistically projected providing a more transparent and factual representation of our Town’s finances. I am grateful for the support of the various town departments and those that contributed to the budget for responding to the fiscal challenges with a conservative approach and prudent spending - only budgeting what is absolutely needed. It is now up to the entire Town Board to analyze the 2014 Tentative Budget and make any revisions or adjustments. Budget Workshop Meetings are scheduled for October 16th and 23rd at 7:30 pm at the Town Hall. As always, I seek the public’s participation in this effort. In 2014, the Town will be able to upgrade our facilities, equipment, and infrastructure and also maintain the service delivery of our departments. At the same time, all available grants and shared partnerships will be aggressively pursued to help offset any costs to our residents. I will continue to work hard to ensure that residents receive outstanding value for our tax dollars and strive to plan and prioritize for Sand Lake’s future needs. ~ Respectfully submitted, Flora Fasoldt

As legislative representatives of District 4, including the towns of Schodack, Nassau and Sand Lake, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the September 11, 2013 legislative meeting. We remembered two notable District 4 residents who passed away in recent weeks. The Legislature welcomed the family of Francis Cellery, who was involved in the volunteer fire and emergency services in Nassau for several decades. We thanked Frank’s family for his and their service to the community and the county. Legislators also mourned the passing of G. Jeffrey Haber, who was active in civic and economic development organizations in the county for decades, and had served as director of the New York State Association of Towns. Jeff played an important role in projects to develop infrastructure in the county to aid in job creation efforts. The meeting was the second one to fall on September 11 since the terrorist attacks of 2001. We paused for a moment of silence and Chairman Martin Reid gave brief remarks about those lost on that day. The legislative chambers continue to include a flag with the slogan “Never Forget”, which helps us remember the events of September 11, 2001 and those called to service since the attacks. Work continues on the extension of county sewer lines to Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. A number of residents have noticed work along Columbia Turnpike near Regeneron in East Greenbush. This project will allow for the expansion of Regeneron and the creation of 300 new jobs. The Legislature approved funds for the repair of equipment used by the county Highway Department and purchase of materials for the completion of county road repair and improvement projects in 2013. 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 are welcome to contact us at the 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

I am lucky to call Poestenkill home and am proud to live in this caring community where my family has remained since the 1800’s. Like my family, I care deeply about the town, and am honored to have been asked to be a candidate for the Town Board. I have served on the Poestenkill Planning Board since 2009, and during that time, I have made it a point to attend Town Board meetings to keep myself apprised of the current town issues. I also served on the Town Code Revision Committee, whose task was to update, revise, and format the Code. I am a member and current Secretary to the Poestenkill Business Association. I previously owned and operated a local business, Ollie B’s Tavern, currently own and manage Miller Farm in Poestenkill with my son Evan, and am employed by Adam Ross Cut Stone Co. I am a member of the Northeastern Subcontractors Association where I serve on the Association’s Trade and Education Committees, and am an Associate Member of the Poestenkill VFW. Change of course is inevitable, but it must be done with proper planning, thoughtful consideration, and appropriate action in order to maintain the quality of life we enjoy here in Poestenkill. Diligence regarding expenditures is vital to keeping our tax rate low. I have over thirty years of business experience to offer the Board and the town residents. I am respectful of all opinions, and believe it is of the utmost importance to foster open discussion, and support compromise. Over the years, numerous members of my family have served the town in many capacities, and I hope to do likewise as your voice on the Poestenkill Town Board. ~ Respectfully submitted, June Butler Ross

Another month has passed with more items being checked off of our to-do list here in Town Hall. So far this month we have watched a number of projects open, and have completed a number of them as well. The Mannix Road-Route 4 Round-about is progressing nicely. The WWTP financing closed on September 26th, we are now waiting on plan approvals by DEC. We will continue to keep the Town up to date on this information. On Monday, September 30th, I submitted my Tentative Budget to the Town Board and Town Clerk. This year I presented a budget with a zero increase in Town taxes. I have listened to a number of people who came to my office to express their concerns with our Town and wanted to show them that I listened. This wasn’t an easy task. Projects had to be thoroughly reviewed and evaluated, and departments budget have been studied closely. As we reviewed it, we made sure that we were remaining responsible to the Town in all aspects. The Greenbush Cemetery Association has informed the Town Board that they received a grant from the State of New York in the amount of $75,000. This grant is helping to renovate 249 dangerous headstones and monuments within the Greenbush Cemetery on 9&20. This will improve the safety of the cemetery and will preserve the historical cemetery. If you have the opportunity, please check out the progress they are making. At the beginning of the summer, we talked of the repaving of Routes 9&20. Since then, my office has received a number of inquiries as to why this has not happened yet. The reason for the delay is that the Town was presented with a proposal from the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC); this proposal has given the Town something to consider. On October 2, 2013, there was a public workshop held to discuss the plans of taking 9&20 from a four lane highway to three lanes, creating a center turning lane. It would allow for a pedestrian and/or bike lane along the road. The project would not widen or narrow the current width of the road. Essentially, this is a repaving and restriping of the existing road. As we are provided information, we will make it available. Be well.

GOSPEL OF JOHN BIBLE STUDY Martin Luther states in his Preface to the New Testament: “John’s Gospel is the one, fine, true, and chief gospel, and is far to be preferred over the other three and placed high above them.” Pastor Jim Hulihan of Trinity Lutheran Church and Gilead Lutheran Church will be teaching this class on Tuesday evenings at Gilead Lutheran Church, in Center Brunswick, classes began on October 8th and start at 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. One need not be a biblical scholar in order to participate. An open heart and mind are the only requirements. This should be an exciting bible study and a great way to meet new people and share the gospel together. So mark your calendar for Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. Please call Trinity at 674-5501 or Gilead at 279-9270 for further info. If transportation is a problem, we can arrange for you to ride with someone. So bring a friend or neighbor and share a wonderful gospel lesson together!

If you regularly read the Advertiser, there have been several misleading articles appearing over the last month about the Current Board Majority in East Greenbush that are pure election season bunk. First, the obsession by Supervisor Langley and his two Town Council candidates talking about passing legislation that has already occurred. Let’s look at audits. In a recent Langley article, he states he wants an “independent, outside audit” that he “initiated last year” and is “pushing hard to complete”. However, Langley fails to mention that this legislation was passed on 4/20/11- MORE THAN EIGHT MONTHS BEFORE HE TOOK OFFICE! Are you confused Supervisor? You and your two town council candidate’s better get on the ball and pay attention, and stop looking to create issues that have already been resolved. This leads me to staffing levels in the DPW that Supervisor Langley is also confused about. Since 2010, over 10 employees from the Department of Public Works have retired or resigned, and the board majority I am a part of has back filled 3. That is a net loss of 7 workers in less than 3 years. In addition, we have not back filled the Deputy DPW Commissioner’s position since it was vacated in 2010. The current DPW Commissioner performs the role of both, realizing a substantial savings to taxpayers. Supervisor Langley, how could adding 3 employees to backfill 10 positions pay off an inter-fund debt of about 1.5 million? It seems math is not a forte of Supervisor Langley. Let’s look at ethics reform. For anyone who attended last month’s public hearing on the new ethics code that the board majority introduced, not one person in attendance spoke against the code, only those in favor of it. I had several people come up to me after the meeting and thank me for all the work. Yet Langley, and his two candidates, keep harping about the need for ethics reform; it’s a non-issue. I plead with Supervisor Langley and his two candidates, stop playing politics, come up with some new issues that have not already been resolved by this current board majority and present some original thoughts to taxpayers on how you intend to move East Greenbush forward.

EVERYTHING WITH GRATITUDE On Sunday, October 13, 2013, “Everything with Gratitude” will be the focus in worship at the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches. The worship theme, based on Luke 17:11-19, will put emphasis upon responding with gratitude for all with which God has blessed one’s life. In the sermon, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will use Luke’s story of Jesus’ healing ten lepers on his way to Jerusalem to point out that gratitude builds our faith and everything that radiates from it. 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). The Stuyvesant Reformed Church begins worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Route 9J and Church Street, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Both church families welcome visitors to worship with them.

(MS) — Most of us have a fall routine to prepare for the colder weather, but have you thought about how the changing season affects our pets? Dry air inside all winter long can pose a problem for dogs and cats like it does for us, so their health is another good reason to install a humidifier. Moister air helps to prevent your pet’s nose and throat from drying out. Also, pet food that is rich in omega oils, such as Petcurean’s GO! SENSI-TIVITY + SHINE, is specifically formulated to support a healthy coat and skin in dryer weather.

Amanda Harrington has earned the title of Scholar Athlete this week! She has participated in tennis since ninth grade and track and field since eighth. After all these years, she is finally being recognized for all of her hard work! Amanda and her family have always played tennis outside of school while she was growing up, and they finally convinced her to try out for the team in ninth grade. Amanda has followed in her sister’s footsteps (who had also played for the high school tennis team) and has been on the varsity team for two years now. Amanda prepares for the tennis season by simply getting out on the courts anytime she can, whether it is by herself or with friends and family. As long as she has a racket and ball at hand, she can work on her hits. During the season, Amanda plays 3rd Doubles. Coach Abbatiello has been with her through it all and has helped her achieve the great athletic ability she possesses today. Amanda shared with me her gratitude for all that Coach Abbatiello has done for her. “Since I was in eighth grade track, he has been my coach for every season and has pushed me further than I thought I could go. He has been there to support me and challenge me, to make me the best athlete I can be and taught me to never give up.” Her father has also played a big role in her academic and athletic success. “My dad has also influenced me, because he taught me that school comes first and sports come second, but if you’re determined and stay focused, you can accomplish anything while balancing school and sports easily.” Amanda has excelled in school, taking AP (advanced placement) Calculus, Honors Biology and Chemistry in her junior year. She is now taking AP Biology, Physics, Government, Writers Workshop and Chic Literature her senior year, with a 96 GPA. After high school, Amanda plans on going to a four year college to study Biology. She is looking at Saint Rose, University of Maryland and University of New Haven. With whatever school she decides, Amanda is hopeful that they have a track team she can compete on. Amanda has been on the high honor role since ninth grade and is now a candidate for National Honors Society (NHS). She won the scholar athlete award for indoor track as a freshman, and the most outstanding field event athlete for pole vault in indoor track, junior year. When asked what being a scholar athlete meant to Amanda, she replied, “Being a scholar athlete means a lot to me, because it shows that all of my hard work has paid off. It’s hard to maintain all my school work, especially with honors classes and all my sports that I’m trying to get better at, but being a scholar athlete means I’ve been able to do that successfully!” Have a great rest of your senior year, Amanda, and best of luck to you in the future! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

Services provided by the Association include support groups, resources and referrals, care consultations, educational programs, safety services, conferences, and professional training.

There is a danger in our beautiful town of Sand Lake. It lurks near our tree lined entrance to town, as you enter the picturesque village of West Sand Lake on our Main St., Rt 43. Our “Main Street” was probably once a path worn by Native Americans. It later became a “corduroy road”, paved with logs and a toll road. Route 43 was never meant to be a major artery to points east and west of us. The houses in the village sit close to the road. A bypass was in the plans for the majority of traffic. Lack of funds kept that from happening. We all have experienced the steep curve as you enter WSL. Now our roads carry heavy trucks loaded with tons of gravel, logs, gasoline, oil and more. This is an accident waiting to happen. It’s not a matter of IF there will be an accident but WHEN. All we need is one texting truck driver, one brake failure, one vehicle ignoring the speed limit, one 30 ton loaded truck to lose control and WHAM. To compound this problem, there is a crosswalk less than 100 yards from the bottom of that curve. Residents and school children can no longer cross the road without getting honked or sworn at by impatient drivers. Two weeks ago, a truck blasted his horn at a school bus attempting to turn onto narrow Meeler Rd. bringing children to school. Evidently, the bus wasn’t moving fast enough. A variety of attempts to attract D.O.T.’s attention have been ignored. The trucks are here to stay, but the traffic needs to be “calmed” by appropriate speed limits, school zone signs and better police enforcement. PLEASE - call or email Gov. Cuomo -asking him to get D.O.T. out here to monitor the traffic with reduced speed limits - flashing yellow lights when school’s in session...the dangerous crosswalk, the speed on the curve the danger with entering or exiting Old Best Rd... ANYTHING you can think of to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists alike. Call his office: 474-8340 OR go to Cuomo’s website www.governor. You can click on “contact” and there will be a space to email his office. It’s time to act. This place matters. ~ Thanks, Dee Erickson

2500 Pond View, Schodack (Off Miller Rd) 479-0800 • COMMUNITY HOSE FIRE CO. TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE The Community Hose Volunteer Fire Company has set Saturday, October 12th, for a public education/open house. The event to be held between the hours of 11AM and 2PM at Station II, 65 Sherwood Avenue, Clinton Heights, is open to the public. This community activity is being held in conjunction with Fire Prevention Week as set by the National Fire Protection Association. Fire Prevention Week is held this time every year to commemorate the tragic Great Chicago Fire which took the lives of 250 people and left 100,000 homeless. It occurred on October 9th, 1871. It is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. Each year a particular theme is observed; this year it is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” To that end the fire fighters will be offering tips on kitchen fire safety. Ron Stark, Company President in planning for the day stated that “More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room in the home.” Children will have the opportunity to participate in fire safety related activities along with a photo op sitting in one of the familiar yellow fire trucks! Hot dogs and hamburgers will be offered to all who attend.

HIGHLIGHT ACTING TROUPE PRESENTS STEEL MAGNOLIAS The Highlight Acting Troupe will present Steel Magnolias on Friday and Saturday, October 18, 19, 25, 26, at 8 pm; and Sunday, Oct. 20 and 27, at 2 pm. The performances will take place at the Brunswick Grange, Rt. 7 and 142 (in back of Stewart’s). Steel Magnolias is written by Robert Harling and directed by Robin Dickinson-Sawyer with Mark Strock as Asst. Director. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. The action centers on Truvy’s beauty parlour and the women who regularly gather there. The story begins on the morning of Shelby’s wedding to Jackson and covers events over the next three years, including Shelby’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; Annelle’s transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl and then to a revival-tent Christian; and Truvy’s relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M’Lynn, and Shelby’s medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.
