NEW BUSES OR NOT? After seeing the AP Board meeting on TV, I couldn’t help commenting. Since when is it cheaper to send mechanical work out (EGR’s), then to buy the tool and have it for all needed vehicles? Now we are farming out body work, maybe because of paint issues, but remember how many of the employees were fitted for masks for painting. If this is the problem, do all the body panels, stringers and wheel wells in house and send the painting to the two local body shops. Two years ago, I went to an Open House at the garage; a past Superintendent asked if there was anything they could do to save the buses. A mechanic answered by saying, “yes we used to scrape them down and re-undercoat them, but we don’t bother anymore”. Most of all of the present board members and administrators were there and heard what was said. It seems like garage work has become a thing of the past. Maybe we ought to “farm out” everything, and taxpayers won’t have to vote on new buses, pay salaries and benefits to those who don’t want to be bothered anymore. Now that so many people are scraping together what they have to keep surviving, it’s an insult to ask us to open our pockets for more. ~ Bill Cushing, Sand Lake Paid Advertisement

THINGS THEY CARRIED: ALBANY AREA SOLDIERS IN VIETNAM Albany Institute of History & Art will present more than thirty objects from the Vietnam War in an exhibition titled, “Things They Carried: Albany Area Soldiers in Vietnam” opening November 3 and running through November 18, 2012. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with The Big Read, a citywide communal reading of Vietnam Veteran Tim O’Brian’s acclaimed 1990 book, The Things They Carried, a collection of interrelated short stories drawn from memories of his service in Vietnam. The Albany Fund for Education, City School District of Albany, and the Albany Public Library have worked in partnership to develop and design a comprehensive, community-wide Big Read event. The Things They Carried, by Tim O’Brien, was chosen from the list of reading selections provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Big Read is a program to encourage citizens to read for pleasure and enlightenment. The grant supports organizations in developing a communitywide reading program to read and discuss a single book or the work of a poet.

Come out and honor our veterans, Sunday, November 11th, at 11:00 am., at the Veteran’s Day Ceremonies at the Sand Lake Veteran’s Memorial Park. The guest speaker will be Retired Colonel Richard Swengross. ~ Lt. Perry William V.F.W. Post 3025

A host of family members, friends, government officials, and members of the HonorA-Deceased Veteran Committee are pictured following the ceremony commemorating the life and service of Vietnam War Veteran James J. Danaher, Jr. The late James J. Danaher, Jr., a 1966 graduate of Troy High School who went on to serve his nation in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War, was recognized by Rensselaer County’s Honor-A-Deceased Veteran Committee and County officials on Tuesday, October 9, 2012, during services at the County Office Building. During his service to our nation, Danaher, Jr., performed as an Air Operations Specialist with the 22nd Tactical Air Support Squadron at the Bien Hoa Air Force Base in the Republic of Vietnam between November 10, 1969 and November 5, 1970. It was at the time he was presented The Air Force Commendation Medal. His Air Force duty also included an assignment as Air Traffic Controller in Bangor, Maine. In addition to the Air Force Commendation Medal, Danaher, Jr., was also authorized to receive the National Defense Medal and the Air Force Good Conduct Medal. In September, 1973, Danaher, Jr., married Bonnia Saari and the couple raised daughters Tara and Shannon in Wynantskill prior to relocating to West Sand Lake. To help support his family, Danaher, Jr., worked as a sales representative for Genuine Auto Parts and is believed to have never missed a day of work until stricken by an illness that led to his untimely death. “The freedoms we hold so dear as Americans have been defended throughout our nation’s proud history by the men and women of the armed forces who like James Danaher put their lives on hold and in harms way,” said Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen M. Jimino. “James Danaher helped defend our country during the Vietnam War, providing valuable tactical assistance to air crews operating in Southeast Asia during a particularly heated phase of the war. He also served as a military air traffic controller following service in Vietnam, helping with air missions during the Cold War,” said Chairman of the Legislature Martin Reid. “James Danaher provided valuable service to our country during the difficult Vietnam years and defended our country’s freedom. We owe he and his family our gratitude

WHAT NOBODY’S TALKING ABOUT Letter to the Editor: “Energy Independence” has been a safe topic for presidential debate. Global warming has not. And yet, even the mainstream evening news now reports as fact that “climate change”, caused primarily by the burning of fossil fuels, is at the source of record violence and extremes of weather all over the world. Savings on the cost of disaster relief and increased health care, brought on by these extremes, could go a long way toward saving Medicare and Social Security and reducing the deficit in the long term. Prioritizing the development of renewable energy could go a lot further toward keeping us competitive in the world market than “getting tough” on China. China and other countries are already moving ahead of us in this, the industry of the future. These countries do not seem to be as beclouded as we by the doubt and denial propagandized by our big oil companies, similarly to the tobacco companies of a few decades ago. ~ Barbara Smith 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.

UPDATE ON NASSAU INDUSTRIAL HARD ROCK QUARRY’S PUBLIC HEARINGS Letter to the Editor: The facts: #1 Be sure you know the location of this mine -On Rt. 66 just south of Crooked Lake. #2 Be sure you know the route of trucks visiting this mine -On Rt. 66 & 43 past Crooked and Glass Lakes and on into West Sand Lake. #3 Three weeks of Planning Board Public Hearings resulted in approximately 250 citizens turning out to participate in this process, with the majority opposing this mine. On November 15th, at 7 pm at St. Mary’s in Nassau, Troy Sand & Gravel’s lawyers will respond to these public comments and have the last word to the Planning Board. The public cannot respond to their comments. Also these same lawyers have had the first words of this hearing and presented at the second hearing, taking up precious time that the public had thought was theirs. Please attend this meeting, so that the Planning Board knows that the public believes that this large-scale industrial hard rock mine does not belong in a Rural Residential Zone. The residents of Sand Lake also need to attend to show that they care about the safety of our roads and the amount of noise and air pollution that this traffic produces. ~ Dianne Applin, Nassau 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.

SUSTAINABLE STEPHENTOWN PLANTED AND DISTRIBUTED 1000 DAFFODIL BULBS On a recent Sunday morning, Sustainable Stephentown’s energetic volunteers planted and distributed 1000 daffodil bulbs throughout Stephentown. A citizen generously donated the bulbs to help Sustainable Stephentown beautify the Town. The bulbs, early, mid and late spring blooms, were given without charge to businesses and private homes, mostly along Routes 22 and 43, and were planted at the Town Park, Stephentown Memorial Library, Madden’s Service Center, and Down in Denver Book Store. The daffodils will also be planted at The Berry Patch, Stephentown Historical Building, Veteran’s Memorial Park, Sykes Store, and at a soon to be opened new business. The group still needs two yards of mulch to cover the daffodil beds. Interested donors should contact Kevin Carpenter (see below). Sustainable Stephentown is an open group working toward a revitalized future for everyone – a thriving community with local businesses, jobs, services, and recreational opportunities. Other projects under consideration are a food cooperative, attracting a grocery store, and participating in discussions about the merit of re-purposing the school building and grounds’ use for the community’s benefit. Anyone interested in Stephentown is invited to meetings. The next is on November 15, 2012, at the Stephentown Memorial Library at 7 p.m. Planning for 2013 is on the agenda. For more information, please visit: or contact Kevin Carpenter at (518) 7330290 (

WRECKING BALL FOR SCHODACK’S OLD TOWN HALL? Letter to the Editor: I have attended about 90% of Schodack Town Board meetings for over 60 years and have never seen a time when there was not some local newspaper coverage which kept the public informed but that is the present situation. The town has a website which for some unknown reason it is not used to inform the public on a regular basis what is going on in our town. At the regular meeting on October 25th, a resolution was passed to seek bids to tear down the old town hall giving only about 2 weeks (November 13th) before bids would be opened. I am aware there are many who will be glad to rid the town of what is called an eyesore, but at what price would you want to spend, and will it make the property saleable at a price which would compensate for the cost of this demolition? I have heard reports that the cost could be between $65,000 and $75,000 to tear it down and restore the site to bare ground. The last I heard was maybe someone would offer $250,000 for the site as is. Does this mean once the site is back to bare ground, the town could get $325,000 for the land, or will the town discover any future offer will still be $250,000 or less? The asking price has been a mystery lately, will the asking price be increased by $75,000? With only about 2 weeks to bid, does the town have a contractor all ready to bid? I also wonder if there is a buyer waiting in the wings to pick up this property for a low ball price? Remember, when we were told that corner lot would sell for one million, two hundred and fifty thousand? I told the town board, “They are again spending money we do not have and they should not burden taxpayers with more expense. Not much is selling with this economy. We should wait for better times when a more realistic price can be achieved.” ~ Ray Lemka, 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.

purrfect kitty of the month My name is Mikki & I’m a beautiful 3.5-year-old, long-haired gray cat with white tuxedo markings and an unusually soft, downy coat. You may have seen me in this space over a year ago as I still have not been adopted. :( I’m considered a special-needs kitty, as I’m very shy and need a special person to work with me so I can blossom & live a full life with someone. I came to the rescue group as a kitten from a feral mom cat and now all of my siblings have been adopted. Although I’m a shy cat at first, once I warm up to you, I love to be petted and to run and play! Toys and treats would go far in gaining my trust. I’m great with other cats and would love to be in a home with at least one other kitty. Since I’m timid at first, I’d do best in a home with older or very respectful children or adults only. I would so love to have a chance at a “forever home” with a good person or family. Can you be the special person for me, a special kitty? I’ve waited for so long! Like all Purrfect Companion kitties, Mikki is up-to-date on routine shots, house trained and spayed. For more information on Mikki, please contact Maryann at 331-2221 or at Purrfect Companions is a non-profit, all volunteer rescue organization. We are always looking for good volunteers to help with the kitties or assist at our adoption clinics. If you’d like to donate a little time to these worthy animals, please give us a call at 463-8709. Our adoption clinics are held 12:30-4:00 most Saturdays and Sundays at Petco, Northway Mall, Albany NY. Stop by and see some of our other kitties! We know we have one that is just “PURRFECT” for you!

Like Jax, she was born under a porch, but she’s a sweet, loving kitty looking for family to love. Justine (aka Goldilocks) is a vibrant longhaired orange tabby female. She’s probably about a year old; she has been spayed and vaccinated. Layla is a 5-month old sleek platinum-grey female. She was feral and living on Troy’s streets before coming to Nassau. Now she’s incredibly affectionate and loving. Leroy is Layla’s brother. This big boy is white with big black patches and like his sister, he was feral but is now a loving guy who’s a bit shy and is hoping to find someone to love. Luna, another Layla sibling, has mesmerizing emerald green eyes. She’s a gorgeous dusty grey with striped legs. Her beautiful eyes match her amazing temperament. Leon, the last Layla sibling, is a stunning dark blue/grey guy. Like his siblings, life started out a bit rough, but you wouldn’t know it by his personality. A loving boy who needs a loving home.

All of these cats have had health exams, been vaccinated and dewormed

by Claire Everett While most AP athletes are sweating it out in winter sport tryouts this week, the few remaining AP fall sport teams competed in their Sectionals. The Boy’s Soccer team was still going strong this week. The Warriors took on South Glens Falls in the Sectional Semi-Finals at Johnstown High School. AP came out hungry for the win. In the first and second half, Averill Park held their opponent, 0-0. The boys traveled into overtime and it looked as if it would come down to penalty kicks, but then, devastatingly, in the last 45 seconds, South Glens Falls scored. It was an unfortunate ending to such a hard-fought game. Congratulations to the boys for doing so well throughout both the regular and post seasons. The Cross Country team also continues to make strides. The Boys and Girls teams started Sectionals this week. On the boy’s side, there was no surprise that one of our own placed. Andrew Tario took 3rd out of 161 participants, with a time of 15:33.14 and an average mile time of 5:07.1. Amazing job! Andrew will move on to the State competition. Other AP Warriors that competed in Class B Sectionals were Chris Shaw, who came in 19th, Josh Foust, who crossed the line 30th, Matt Miller, who came in 45th, Jeremy Carter (54th), Sean Harrington (76th), Lukas Morgan (78th), Justin Garzione (87th), Benji Quinones (88th), and Chris Hough-Deane (116th). Congratulations to all involved. On the Girl’s side, congratulations to the AP sectional participants: Brittany Mack (48th), Juliana Kolakowski (64th), Allyson Holland (86th), Olivia Marrochello (95th), Morgan Rush (113th), Sammi Miller (120th), and Lizzie Howard (133rd). The winter sports are starting up now. The Wrestlers, Basketball players, Bowlers, Indoor Track, and Basketball Cheerleaders are all awaiting their first competition. Good luck to all the teams in the games and competitions to come! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at

This week’s Scholar Athlete of the Week just began running cross country this year, yet has already made quite the impression. When I asked Coach Glunk who she thought would make an excellent candidate, she immediately recommended Morgan Rush, a senior at Averill Park High School. Morgan defines the title of a scholar athlete. She began running cross country this year, because she thought it would be a fun, new way to meet people and stay in shape. At meets, which Rush admits can be pretty nerve-racking, she usually runs a 5K, which is 3.1 miles. She loves being with the team, because it led her to meet lots of new people that she never would have had she never joined the team. Morgan spent many hours working hard at practice over the summer, all in preparation for the upcoming season. While being involved in cross country, Rush is also an outstanding student. For the past three years, she has maintained a steady 95 overall GPA. This year she is taking Chic Lit (Women’s Literature), physics, calculus, philosophy, wind ensemble, economics and participation in government. In the future, Morgan plans on majoring in occupational therapy; possibly at Russell Sage College or Utica College. Rush believes that being a scholar athlete means you have the ability to balance your school work, involvement in athletics and the many other aspects of your life. She would like to thank her parents and sister for all of her success. “They’ve really helped me to get where I am today,” says Morgan. Her family has inspired her in so many ways and helped shape who she is. While the season has come to a wrap, we wish you the best of luck, Morgan, in your last year here at APHS!

ADDITIONAL DEER MANAGEMENT PERMITS AVAILABLE FOR HUNTERS Remaining Deer Management Permits (DMPs) will be available in several Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) beginning Nov. 1, 2012, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced. DMPs, which allow hunters to harvest antlerless deer, are issued for specific WMUs to help control deer populations. In several units, the target number of DMPs was not issued during the initial application period. In these WMUs, DEC will re-open the DMP application process on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunters may apply for leftover DMPs at any sporting license sales outlet beginning Nov. 1, 2012. Leftover DMPs will not be available by phone, by mail or via the internet. Applicants who previously paid the $10 DMP application fee or are exempt from the application fee will not be charged for this additional application. Applications for remaining DMPs will be accepted for the following WMUs: 1C, 3M, 3R, 3S (bowhunting-only), 7F, 7H, 8A, 8F, 8G, 8H, 8J, 8N, 9A, and 9F.

SCHODACK’S TOWN CENTER: THE LINKAGE STUDY Letter to the Editor: On October 25th, the Schodack Planning and Development Association highlighted our Position Paper and stated there would be a series of articles to follow. This is the first follow-up article on the Town Center Linkage Study. The Scope of the Project- This Study, made possible by the Capital District Transportation Council, will build upon the Town of Schodack’s Comprehensive Plan and Route 9 Corridor Development Plan. Both studies called for creating a publicly supported town center plan. The town center plan is envisioned to include a balance of commercial, residential, civic, cultural, and recreational uses with a well-designed transportation system that is safe and walkable. The Project is certainly a step in the right direction for our Town. The Town Center Plan currently defines the “town center” as 9/20 between Miller Road and Exit 11. However, the Association believes it makes sense to extend this area to just beyond Route 150, to also include the old Town Hall as well as the vacant land on the other side of 9/20. There is land for sale at this very important intersection which would be ideal for retail and service development. This is in line with the findings of the 2006 Corridor Study, which talked about the Town Center as a much broader area, going just beyond the split of 9 & 20, and encouraging retail and service industries in this section. Design Standards - The current Town Center Study and the 2006 Corridor Study both mention the need for design standards to be developed for the subject area. The Association is excited about a renewed interest in these standards, since a “Commercial Design Guidelines Manual”, previously developed by the town, could easily be pulled off the shelf and used today. Public Participation - The other positive aspect of this Study is the public participation. Key stakeholder and public meetings are scheduled for Nov. 13 and 14th at Town Hall. We would encourage all who can attend to please be there. Additional details are available on the Town’s website. Our next article will be focused around the Comprehensive Plan. ~Tony Kirby, Director, Office of Real Property Management Thruway Authority/Canal Corporation 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.

Adam Heisig

By: Hannah Leffler

Everyone learns how to cut, paste and color in the lines at a young age, but for Adam Heisig that was just the beginning. Adam Heisig, a senior here at Averill Park, has been creating art pieces for as long as he can remember. As he has grown, his art has grown as well. Adam says that, “Art is an expression of who I am, what I like…I create things I would like other people to see. That’s what inspires me.” He seems to always be working on a new and exciting piece. Adam loves photography and plans on continuing that in college while also doing advertising. Along with photography, he also uses physical media to express his art. “I like to use different subjects in my photography, manipulate them to create something different, and explore the use of light in a photo”, says Adam. As busy as he is, Adam still keeps his overall average at a 90, participates in boy scouts, and finds time to hangout with his friends on the weekends. Mrs. Gregory, one of Adam’s art teachers here at Averill Park says that Adam “is very self-motivated with his art, and displays a satisfaction beyond that of his peers with the development of his conceptual ideas. He’s a very eager learner and is very interested in all media.” Adam was also voted best artist in the senior class this year. He has a lot going for him and he is sure to achieve it all. Adam thanks his parents for everything they have done to help him get to where he is today. Adam, I wish you the best, and good luck with everything!

Dear Community Members: The best solutions to local school challenges always come from cooperation, commitment and compromise among those closest to the issues. This is why the Averill Park Board of Education is seeking input from its community –parents, students, educators, taxpayers and community leaders alike – to develop a long range plan entitled, Averill Park 2020 (AP2020). In October 2012, the Board initiated a planning process designed to assemble a broad-based coalition willing to help the district develop a future plan of action. As you know, our school community has faced considerable financial pressures in recent years. Residents, from those wanting to preserve programs to those wanting to limit tax increases, have addressed the Board in various forums and meetings. Looking ahead to the future, these challenges remain, but the Board is looking to engage the community and to develop shared goals and understanding. The AP2020 group – which will meet four times in December and January – will develop a blueprint that includes a new mission statement, strategic objectives, action plans and the measurement tools needed to chart progress. Participation in this committee will involve making a commitment to attend all four planning meetings. These include: • December 12 - 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., High School Media Center • January 14 and 15 – 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (location TBD) • January 30 - 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., High School Media Center If you would like to be considered as a member the planning process, please complete the nomination form which you can find on the District website (, in all District buildings, and other local places (Libraries, Town Hall, etc) by November 20. You may also nominate someone else for this role. Please send completed forms to Jacqueline Geraci at or Averill Park CSD, 146 Gettle Rd, St.1, Averill Park, NY 12018. Completed forms may also be returned to any school building. Ultimately, the Board’s goal is to ensure the best education for our children in a safe and supportive environment that promotes achievement and engagement – and to achieve this in context of what’s happening locally and statewide with our economy. This is why we must look ahead and involve area residents in developing solutions. Please consider this invitation to apply. I also invite you to follow our progress as we begin our work in the coming weeks. Thank you. ~ Sincerely, Dr. James Hoffman - Superintendent of Schools

I saw a poll the other day that said only 12% of Americans viewed Congress favorably. I thought about that. How would they feel if Congress were the only form of government we had. And then, I remembered, we did! The Second Continental Congress convened on May 10, 1775, a month after the Revolutionary War broke out on Lexington Green in April. It ceased to exist when the Articles of Confederation were ratified. Although it had no explicit legal authority to govern, it assumed all the functions of a national government. The Congress was to take charge of the colonial war effort, and it adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. By raising armies, founding a Navy, creating the Marine Corps, directing strategy, appointing diplomats and generals, stabilizing the currency and making formal treaties, the Congress acted as the de facto national government for six years. The Congress authorized the seizure arsenals, the driving out of royal officials and in 1775, oversaw the successful siege of the British army in the city of Boston. On June 14, 1775, the Congress voted to create the Continental Army out of the militia units around Boston and quickly appointed Congressman George Washington of Virginia as commanding general. It sent Silas Deane and Benjamin Franklin to France and John Jay to Spain as Congressional ministers. It re-opened American ports in defiance of the British Navigation Acts. The Congress had no authority to levy taxes and was required to request money, supplies, and troops from the states to support the war effort. Individual states frequently ignored these requests. The source of Congressional power lay solely in the acquiescence of the people or the persuasive powers of the delegates to convince their home governments to contribute to the cause. It continued to function in York, Pennsylvania, when the British captured Philadelphia in 1777-8 when it hired Friedrich Wilhelm August Heinrich Ferdinand Baron von Steuben to turn our rag-tag militia into an organized and trained army. In 1777, Congress passed and sent to the states for ratification the Articles of Confederation. Finally, on March 1, 1781, the Articles of Confederation were ratified. On the next day, the same congressional delegates met as the new Congress of the Confederation. Perhaps the reason for the success of the Second Continental Congress was that no one in the history of the world had ever seen a truly representative body. Remember, the British Parliament was selective in allotting its membership--Liverpool and Manchester had no representation. However, adulation was not universal. John Adams said, “One useless man is a disgrace: Two is a law firm: Three or more is a Congress!” Ronald can be reached at:

On Sunday, November 11, 2012, the Stuyvesant and Nassau Reformed Churches will focus on a letter to the Christian Hebrews who may have been considering a return to Judaism, perhaps because of their lack of understanding the Biblical truths of which they had been informed. In Hebrews 9:2428, letter, the writer depicts Christ as the great High Priest who constantly makes intercession on behalf of the world before the throne of God. In the sermon titled, “The One Mediator Between God and Us,� the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will place emphasis upon the truth that it is through Jesus that we have access to an otherwise inaccessible God. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church begins worship at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at the corner of Route 9J and Church Street, Stuyvesant. 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). Both churches provide intergenerational worship experiences for young boys and girls.
