Dear Averill Park Community Members, A mailer regarding the bus referendum, as well as transfer of land to the Town of Poestenkill, will be arriving over the next few days. A public hearing on these referendums will take place at 6:00 on October 23, in the High School Large Group Instruction Room, where the Board meetings take place. The public vote will occur on Tuesday, November 13th, from 7 am to 9 pm on both items. The State Education Department (SED) has provided feedback on our submitted Annual Professional Performance Review plan. The requested modifications were made and the plan resubmitted. We are hopeful SED will approve the revised plan. At the October 9th Board of Education meeting, agreements with owner’s representatives, architect, and bond counsel were approved to begin developing a possible capital project. The invaluable feedback provided by the Long Range Planning committee last October is serving as the foundation of the project. Any proposed project will be put to the public for a vote, potentially in May of 2013. An independent audit was conducted on the district’s financial statements from the last year. The Board is happy to report that, apart from one minor area, the district received very high marks for their accounting practices. Our hats go off to Michael Ouimet and his financial team. The board is looking to establish a strategic planning group comprised of interested community members. The intent of this group is to assist the district with mapping out vision and goals for the next five years. Please look for more information in the near future. The next board meeting is on Tuesday, October 23rd, in the High School Large Group Instruction room. Additional information on all these items are on the district website: http:// ~ Averill Park Board of Education

LOVE LUTHERAN CHURCH Vanity of vanities, all is vanity lamented King Solomon at the beginning of the Book of Ecclesiastes. Through his groans and moans, this richest and most powerful, wisest and noble of the kings of Israel wondered what exactly was the meaning of life. For Solomon, all he had acquired was worthless. Pastor Henry examines King Solomon’s conclusion that we must not value ourselves according to our possession, but in the eternal value placed upon us by the Son of God. Come hear Pastor Henry deliver a sermon entitled, “Vanity Fair,” based on the text Ecclesiastes 5: 10-20. Love Lutheran Church is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush. Please call 477-8685 for further info.

By: David Fleming The 2013 budget process has begun. In the face of economic stagnation and decreasing revenues and increasing costs, I have again released a bare bones tentative budget that reduces spending and leaves the general fund tax rate the same (0% increase). This budget protects our services and programs but does significantly reduce contractual spending. At home and at the Town Hall, these are challenging economic times for us all and this budget recognizes these challenges. The overall town services budget is projected to increase .4% in spending over the previous year due to escalating insurance and employment costs (health care and general insurance premiums will increase a combined 14% for 2013). The general fund budget is proposed at spending levels below that of 2008. Nassau’s highway services will remain stable with some increases in expenditures expected to account for the rise in costs, as well as the purchase of vehicles to replace some that have more than 220,000 miles and are more than 20 years old. Due to these impacts, the Town’s proposed highway budget may increase by 1.63% in 2013. For the portion of the town that pays for this separate fund, this increase would be approximately $4.48 in 2013 or 37 cents per month. By the time you read this, the meeting room area of your town hall should be gutted. Thanks to a financial gift (more on that later), we are insulating and updating the meeting room. This effort should pay immediate dividends in the form of energy spending reductions. Town meetings will need to be moved during this construction, so please visit the Town’s website for meeting locations. The building will still be utilized for Election Day. Work also continues on the Burden Lake Sewer District with the construction bids expected to go out in January 2013. At our recent meeting, we began review of new proposals for solar panel installation at the highway garage. These proposals would save us tens of thousands of dollars in electricity costs and would involve no cost to Nassau. We also began review of a special permit for continuation of a paint ball facility on Route 20, and approved the purchase of a shed/office for the Transfer Station utilizing landfill closure reserve funds. The transfer station trailer is deteriorating rapidly, and this purchase will update a vastly improved operation. Finally, don’t forget the Halloween Party on October 22nd at HCFD!


Girl Scout Troop 1710 completed the Bronze Award this past spring. The Bronze Award is the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can achieve. Our Bronze Award project was to bring meals to homebound people in our neighborhood. We learned how to plan meals, budget, shop for ingredients, cook the meals, and most importantly, how to work together. We enjoyed the whole project, but our favorite part was visiting the homebound. Troop 1710 would like to thank our sponsors: Kiwanis of Sand Lake and Lakeview Restaurant, along with the Church of the Covenant for the use of their kitchen, and Linda Banker from St. Henry’s Church for giving us a list of people to deliver meals to. We would also like to thank our troop leaders, Mrs. Bursey and Mrs. Chan for their guidance and support.

RENSSELAER COUNTY COURT CANDIDATE DEBRA YOUNG: EXPERIENCED AT WHAT? Letter to the Editor: As political signs pop all over, I can’t help but notice what words used to describe candidates. This one is “independent” and that one is “fair.” The sign that really caught my attention was Debra Young’s sign for her candidacy for Rensselaer County Court Judge. What does her sign say about her? That she is “fair,” “experienced,” and “committed to justice”. The word that is a real head-scratcher is “experienced.” Most people who use that word when seeking a job imply that they have some meaningful experience related to that job. I am sure that is what Young wants voters to believe about her Rensselaer County Court campaign. But Young has absolutely NO criminal judicial experience — not even as a part-time town judge. In fact, Young evidently has no experience in any criminal courtroom, and not that much in civil courtrooms. As an attorney who defends medical malpractice lawsuits, she more frequently than not settles those lawsuits out of court. So Young’s use of the word “experienced” to describe herself in no way applies to the position she is seeking — judge of the county’s criminal court. Is it an outright lie? Of course not. All adults are “experienced” at many things. In Young’s case, she is “experienced” as a lawyer for malpractice insurance companies and as a part-time Town Board member in Schodack. Does that experience make her the right person for County Court Judge? I don’t think so. I prefer a County Court Judge who is experienced as a criminal court judge –- like Chris Maier, who is currently a full-time judge in Troy City Court, the busiest criminal court in the county. When casting your vote for such an important office, isn’t it important to vote for someone who has at least some experience that is relevant for the actual job they are running for? I think so. ~ Linda Underwood, Castleton Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

SAME OLD SONG Letter to the Editor: Is President Obama being honest when he claims that Mitt Romney plans to give $5 trillion in tax breaks to the rich and shift that burden to the middle class? Here’s some truth to contemplate. Obama himself extended the Bush Tax Cuts once already with the blessing of Democratic lawmakers, but they didn’t close any tax loopholes for the rich. Obama demands specifics from Romney (like closing tax loopholes?) but ignores them when provided (like the Simpson-Bowles Commission recommendations). As reported in The Boston Globe today, Oct 8th 2012: “If the payroll tax, the Bush tax cuts, estate tax cuts, and other tax benefits are all permitted to expire on schedule at the end of the year, then collectively Americans face an average tax increase of $3,446 in 2013, according to the Tax Policy Center.” So who really gives tax breaks to the rich and increases taxes on the middle class? ObamaCare is another massive tax increase on the middle class. That’s one detail you didn’t know when you voted for “Hope and Change”. But how would you know? Harry Reid and the Democrats in Congress didn’t even read the ObamaCare bill before passing it. The President also offered Chicago style kickbacks and bribed key lawmakers with ObamaCare exemptions in order to get it passed. And now they expect us to think they care about details? They haven’t even presented a budget during this administration. Why don’t they want us to know where all our tax money is going? Obama stifles democracy by issuing radical executive orders to circumvent the voting of the peoples’ representatives in Congress. He stopped the exploration and drilling of oil & natural gas as well as the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline that would have competed with his rich donors who own the rail companies that currently transport these resources. Obama’s green jobs scheme is corporate welfare too. Obama gave $90 billion of taxpayers’ money to wealthy crony campaign contributors like Solyndra (now bankrupt). Let’s all sing: Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies… Fleetwood Mac. ~ David Crawmer, Editor s 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.

The following are highlights of the October 10, 2012 Sand Lake Town Board Meeting: • 2013 Tentative Town Budget - I filed the 2013 Tentative Town Budget on September 29, 2012 and provided a summary to the Town Board on October 3. The proposed budget meets the State 2% property tax cap and provides adequate funding for all of our important town services. The proposed budget significantly reduces the Town’s previous reliance on fund balance (savings), providing a more realistic blueprint of our Town’s spending and revenue. The Supervisor’s Tentative Budget is just a starting point. It is now up to the Town Board to offer suggestions and make changes it deems necessary. Budget Meetings are scheduled for October 17 and 24 at 7:30 pm at the Town Hall and the public is welcome to attend. • Eastern Union Turnpike Bridge – With a bit of luck and cooperation from weather, the Eastern Union Turnpike bridge should be open this week, with some minor cleanup over the next few weeks. The County reports that the contractor should be totally off the site before the end of the month. Residents’ cooperation and patience during construction was most appreciated. • Justice Court Assistance Program Grant – Working in collaboration with Town Justices Fryer and Toomey, we filed a grant application October 1 requesting funding from the State Office of Court Administration for necessary upgrades and improvements to our Town Court. • Disposal and Handling of Paint – The Public Works Department is setting up a paint disposal area at the Town Highway Garage on Springer Road to respond to requests for assistance with proper disposal of leftover paint. Residents will soon be able to take water and oil based paint to the Highway Garage free of charge. Residents will be informed as soon as everything is in place. • Sanitary Sewer Flow Analysis – The Town Board authorized a contract with Kestner Engineering to prepare a Sanitary Sewer Flow Analysis Report. This information will be used for submission to regulatory agencies to demonstrate compliance with the Clean Water Act and other regulatory requirements. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please stop by my office at Town Hall or call me at 674-2026 ext. 12 (Town Hall Office) or 674-0223 (Home). The next regular Town Board Meeting is November 14, 2012 at 7:30 pm.

Artist of the Week: Lydia Sharp By: Hannah Leffler

Sharp Lydia

First off, I would like to say that I am very excited to be given the chance to share with you the amazing talent that we have in the Averill Park High School Art Department. The talent ranges not only from the amazing teachers, but of course, with the students as well. I can’t wait to show you all that we have. This week’s Artist is Lydia Sharp! She’s an extremely talented senior here at Averill Park who uses multiple Medias to create beautifully interesting pieces. Whether it’s with knitting, sketching, painting, drawing, or digital media, she can basically do it all! Lydia says that “I see art as a personal manifestation of creation around us. We are all creative individuals. I express my creativity through art, because I am fascinated by its ability to turn ideas into visual concepts.” She has also been a part of the Theatre arts with doing stage crew as well as designing the posters for the Off-Broadway Players, upcoming Production of Little Women and the past productions of: A Christmas Carol and A Midsummer’s Nights Dream. Lydia does all this and still has time to keep her 97 overall average. “Honestly, sometimes I wonder how I do it. It can be very busy juggling school work, art, and other activities. The true answer, coffee and not a lot of sleep. I study quite a bit and make sure that the work I put forth in my classes is up to par. This also goes for my artwork. It may mean sacrificing my free time, but I’m doing what I love”, says Lydia. She will keep this art talent and enthusiasm with her as she moves on with her future, as she plans on becoming a Graphic Designer. Lydia has been creating art since she was little and has only grown to bigger and better pieces. With taking in inspiration from all over she is able to create anything she sets her mind to. I wish you all the best with your art, as well as your future, Lydia! Good Luck with everything!

POESTENKILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY ILLUSTRATED TALK ON DUTCH BARNS Ned Pratt will present a illustrated talk on Dutch Barns at the October 23rd meeting of the Poestenkill Historical Society. Ned is a member of The Dutch Barn Preservation Society. Members have been instrumental in preserving and restoring threatened barns. Like many other symbols of our agricultural past, Dutch barns are rapidly disappearing. Few of these venerable buildings will survive the next twenty years. Built in large numbers between 1630 and 1825, Dutch barns can still be found in rural portions of the Hudson, Mohawk and Schoharie valleys, and in northern and central New Jersey. The Poestenkill Historical Society will meet at 7:00pm in the Poestenkill Town Hall on RT 351.

Rocky is about 1 year old, current with all vaccines, heartworm negative and in extremely great condition. Rocky is crate trained and is not a barker. He was rescued from a high kill shelter.

eakers Bring Your Sn ll Park eri & Join The Av ze! Fitness Cra


by Claire Everett The week of the Homecoming game was rainy and freezing, but APHS and their cheerleaders still rallied behind their sports as we took on the most challenging competition yet. The Homecoming football game was an exciting way to end the week, as the school came out to support our Warriors. The boys took the field ready to go, and fought hard to represent their school, but unfortunately, they came up short in the second quarter and couldn’t recover. Great game and past few years to Dom Bedetti, Frank Cone, Collin Fleming, Michael Hayes, Taylor Hotaling, Matt LaBounty, Matt Lindeman, Tyler Moses, Brian Reardon, Jon Rodgers, Brian Smith, John Sweet, Nick Valenti, Tyler Vanderbogart, and Chris Whitman, the seniors of AP Football. The Boys Soccer Homecoming week was also full of anticipation. AP first took on Bethlehem and was in an extremely close game up until the end, but unfortunately, Bethlehem got in a last minute goal, winning 1-0. Then the boys took on the dreaded Colonie. The Warriors played with heart, and in the second half it paid off. Daniel Calhoun had a great goal, helping the boys to win 1-0. The Girls Soccer team took on Bethlehem this week. The girls lost, 1-0. Although the ladies didn’t score, there was a notable performance by AP Goalie, Kelly Donnelly, who had some great saves. Tennis also played some tough matches. First the ladies took on Catholic High, and as a team, pulled out a win! Great job AP! Then the girls played Shen, and although individually they had great efforts, the ladies couldn’t quite beat the Shenendehowa team. Better luck next week! Finally, the Volleyball team took on both Bethlehem and Colonie. In both games, the girls fell short. But, congratulations to Abby Fisher, who was the MVP for the game against Bethlehem. I reiterate: come and support the Warriors! Next week, I will inform you about all the senior night games played this week! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at

Running is something that typically most people view with horror. However, that is not the case for Matt Miller, a senior at Averill Park High School. Matt is one of those people you’ll see on multiple occasions, running the streets of the town to stay in shape. He has been a member of the cross country team for five years. In eighth grade, after he was cut from the football team, Matt decided to give cross country a try, and running has been a major part of his life ever since. He loves being able to travel other places with the team for meets. He has attended trips to Manhattan, and an over night stay In Rhode Island, which are experiences many other teams don’t get the opportunity to have. Miller makes a huge effort to keep up his endurance and stay fit in the off season. Over the summer, he held captain’s practices twice each week to bring the team together and run. Also, each he runs five out the seven days, along with lifting weights a few times. When I asked Miller what races are like for him, he said they are long and exhausting, but the feeling of accomplishment when you reach the end in a new best time is all the reward he needs. He also loves that, unlike other sports, in cross country you can look at times and easily distinguish your improvement. Along with himself, he really enjoys seeing his team improve. In his spare time, Matt likes to exercise and run outside of practice. And in the summer, he’s always busy calling up friends and organizing pick up games of basketball or Ultimate Frisbee. Miller isn’t all fun in games though. He says, “Being a scholar athlete to me means properly budgeting your time so you can do well in your sport and school,” which is exactly what he does. Matt’s over all GPA has been about a 94 for the past three years. This year he is taking challenging classes such as AP Biology (AP meaning advanced placement), Calculus, Physics, Detective Fiction and Politics in Government. In the future, he hopes to attend a college outside of New York state and major in biology. Matt would like to thank his parents for pushing him to succeed in both cross country and school. They have also always been there to support Matt at his meets. Secondly, he would like to thank Coach Glunk for supplying him with the workouts and advice that he needed to become a better runner. And lastly, he would like to thank his teammates for pushing him in every workout. Well, Matt, we wish you the best of luck in the remainder of your season. We’ll be sure to see you cross the finish line first in your next 5K!

HOW TO BE A MEANINGFUL LEADER On Sunday, October 21, 2012, the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches will hear of the third passion prediction according to the Gospel of Mark. In Mark 10:35-45, Jesus teaches his disciples that the cross marks the way of discipleship. In the sermon titled, “How to Be A Meaningful Leader,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will point to the Son of Man’s coming not to be served but to serve; and that to serve as affective leaders in our communities, we must often put aside the way of pleasure peace and profit. In following the way Christ, we must speak of the costs as well as the benefits in our leadership. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church begins worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the intersection of Route 9J and Church Street, Stuyvesant. On October 21, the church family will share in a social hour to be hosted by Caroline and Ashley Gleason following worship. All are invited. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-School-building, 43 Church St., Route 20 in the village of Nassau.
