RED CROSS BLOOD and PLATELET DONATIONS NEEDED The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give the perfect gift this holiday season – a lifesaving blood or platelet donation. By rolling up a sleeve, donors can help ensure patients continue to receive treatment throughout the holiday season. Busy holiday schedules and travel plans make it more challenging for regular donors to give, and many businesses and organizations postpone hosting blood drives during the holiday season for these same reasons. This can lead to a decline in blood donations, but the need is constant. Upcoming blood donation opportunities: East Greenbush: 12/5/2016: 1:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., Rensselaer Elks, 683 Columbia Turnpike; 12/6/2016: 8 a.m. - 1 p.m., Phoenix Life Insurance Company, 15 Tech Valley Drive; 12/6/2016: 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., Rose and Kiernan Inc, 99 Troy Road.

GLENDORA VEGETARIAN CLUB Nathan Runkel nearly twenty years ago grabbed a handheld camera, and strapped a light to his head and entered the hidden world of Ohio’s egg factory farms. Those late-night, querillastyle operations marked the beginning of mercy for Animals undercover investigations. We currently celebrate the first 50 undercover investigations from hatcheries to slaughter house auctions to egg farms, these brave investigations have uncovered atrocious abuse and brought about changes. They have flashed a spotlight onto the darkest places on earth. Over the years our tactics have become more sophisticated. The handheld cameras have been replaced by state of the art covert cameras. We no longer enter through back doors as rebels but through front doors as employees. Our investigators are highly trained, and their coverage is more extensive. Times have changed too in the early days when mercy for animals exposed live animals thrown into trash-cans or workers hitting shackled animals like punching bags, law enforcement ignored our calls for prosecutions. In recent years, law has acted immediately. Arresting animal abusers and bringing them to justice. We thank you, Nathan Runkel. The Glendora Vegetarian Club is derelict next to you. All we do is eat and talk. We do spend money furthering veganism, $10,539 these past 3 years and 9 months. Our next meeting will be December 28th at Beirut Restaurant, River Street in Troy at 6PM, Dutch treat. 518-610-5810. ~ Glendora

OPEN LETTER TO HILLARY CLINTON Letter to the Editor: I was that young woman who met you walking in the woods with Bill after Election Day, half the country was. For us, who gave you the win in the popular vote, for us, the Idealists who want to believe that, as you said, “America is great because America is good,” and for the poor, the tired, the huddled masses, you were Our Champion. You had picked up the banner of Eleanor Roosevelt. We will miss your bright colors, your warm smile, and your hearty laugh. We are in mourning for what might have been, and almost was. The worst of mourning is all the painful “What Ifs”. What if the fake news and the negative spins had not been repeated so often and so loudly? What if more people had been able to see through them to the fundamental trustworthiness of your lifetime loyalty to your ideals? Your concession speech is one of the great speeches of American History: “Never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.” By your valiant, whole-hearted combat, you stand in defeat as a figure as inspiring as any victor. You are Teddy Roosevelt’s ‘Man in the Arena’, you are Zorba, and you are Kate McKinnon on SNL singing “Halleluia.” You are the existentialist hero who committed completely, knowing that the results were beyond her control. You give us courage to try, to give our all, to ‘fail nobly’, to go for a walk in the woods, to pick up the banner again. ~ Barbara Leavell Smith, Town of East Poestenkill 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.

This week, our scholar athlete is Grace Reid! Grace was a cocaptain of the AP cross country team this past fall and she also runs outdoor track. Grace has been running cross country since eighth grade. “I originally started cross country to get in shape for lacrosse, but I found I liked running better. I’ve been running ever since,” Grace explains. Grace’s favorite part about cross country is the strong bond the whole team shares. “My teammates are always there to encourage me and dig out the competitive drive in me,” Grace says. Grace got an injury a couple of years ago, and it never healed correctly. Running a lot can cause the injury to resurface, which impairs Grace’s ability to compete. However, Grace has never let her injury stop her. “I just try my best to run through the pain and take care of my injury. Also, I never give up no matter how far away my goals may seem,” she explicates. Grace applies her strong work ethic to academics as well. In school, Grace maintains a 92.0 GPA as she participates in AP Biology, AP Government and Politics, AP English, Painting and Drawing, Sociology and Spanish 5. After high school, Grace plans to attend college and major in either political science or anthropology. Outside of school, Grace plays the drums and partakes in student government and mock trial at APHS. Grace’s advice to new runners is to stick with running and never give up. “Cross country races are long and intense. You must endure the pain, because it will get better and easier as you improve. When you do improve, you will feel great about yourself.” Best of luck to Grace as she continues her senior year at APHS! ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

DEC SEEKS ASSISTANCE TO LOCATE BLACK BEAR DENS This winter, State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) wildlife biologists are seeking the public’s help to learn about new black bear dens throughout New York. As part of DEC’s ongoing monitoring of black bears in New York, wildlife biologists periodically check on black bears during the winter den season. The bears may be fitted with a radio collar to help biologists track the bears’ activities throughout the rest of the year and to relocate dens in subsequent years for monitoring cub production, condition, and survival. Bears may den in a rock crevice, tree cavity, or under heavy brush or fallen trees. Since female bears generally give birth in January or early February, a high-pitched squeal from the cubs may be audible if near a den. New York hikers and hunters typically cover countless miles of wooded terrain each year. DEC urges anyone who finds a bear den to not approach or disturb the den, but simply to note the location and move away from the den site. DEC requests that anyone locating a bear den contact their local DEC Wildlife office with specifics about the den location, including GPS coordinates if possible. More information about black bears in New York is available at DEC’s Black Bear webpage. WWW.CRWNEWSPAPERS.COM

Left to Right, back row: Kyle Almeida, Mathew Glanton, Greg Effman, George Fudge III, Coach Fudge, Aiden Dahl, Peter Floge, Lucas Ferguson, Rory Iwaneczko. Front row: Morgan Hempel, Abe Weatherwax. The Venue is the Annual Afrims Turkey Shoot Out, Eight teams entered but only one could win. Our boys take the first game with a three to one victory over the Alley Cats, only to get schooled by Greenville in the very next game four to one. Game three was against IMX out of Vermont and we came out on top giving us a second seed in the Quarter finals. APYSL faced off against FSC in the Quarter final round only to run away with a 2 nill lead advancing us to the Semi Finals against Bethlehem FC. Single eliminations, twenty minutes to play, and one team advances and one goes home. AP 1 Bethlehem 1, and we go to the shoot-out with AP advancing to the finals against Greenville. Greenville scores early and AP ties it with 8 minutes on the clock and that’s how it ends, but only one team can win, so we move to the shoot-out. Three players from each team square off against the opposing goalie and best out of three wins the day. But when it’s tied after three, then the fourth player steps up, then the fifth and so on. In this case, we went to the eighth player before Averill Park would claim the Victory. ~ Congratulations Boys, Coach Fudge

John the Baptist Says: “REPENT, SHARE, SERVE” Sunday, December 4, 2016, is the Second Sunday in Advent 2016. The Nassau Reformed Church will focus in worship on the fiery appearance of John the Baptist in his preaching the advent of the long awaited Messiah. In the sermon, based on Matthew 3:1-12, the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will speak about this preacher’s remarkable style and uncompromising message that Christian faith calls us to repent, share, and serve. Join us and come to more fully understand that if we are humble and obedient, the Bible gives us guidance and sustenance in our discipleship. Communion will be celebrated during worship. 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). WWW.CRWNEWSPAPERS.COM

Letter to the Editor: President Elect Donald Trump has beaten the Democrats at their own game, using a powerful emotional quotient to gain patriotic voters’ unwavering loyalty. EQ (as opposed to IQ) and the left’s reliance upon it, is why our liberal population is losing its collective mind and acting irrationally right now. They let their emotions run their lives. From Wikipedia: “Emotional intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is the capability of individuals to recognize their own, and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior, and to manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt environments or achieve one’s goal(s).” Coleman, Andrew (2008). A Dictionary of Psychology (3 ed.). Oxford University Press. ISBN 9780199534067. Our nation’s liberal political faction has been playing with citizens’ minds, using psychographic manipulation to attract them to emotional goals instead of intelligent goals. Emotions have gotten plenty of politicians elected, but that doesn’t make their policies work, and that’s why our economy and society are currently in crisis. President Obama in particular focused his election campaign on “hope and change” as opposed to specific actions that uninformed voters found hard to understand. Voters who understood Mr. Obama’s plans to fundamentally alter government’s responsibility with citizens’ rights, and knew those plans would fail, were outnumbered by those who held deep passion for the President’s skin color. This manipulation, this mind control, began in our public schools decades ago. The presence of school psychologists and use of psychotropic drugs are contributing factors. It’s why Democrats are against school choice which would enable too many students to escape indoctrination. Donald Trump’s voters have a passion for restoring law, order and fiscal responsibility in our government. They also have the intelligence to understand that accomplishing this will benefit all Americans of every orientation. ~ David Crawmer, North Greenbush 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.

FRIENDS OF THE POESTENKILL LIBRARY INVITE YOU TO “LIGHT UP THE LIBRARY” The Friends of the Poestenkill Library invite you to give a holiday gift that helps the Library while honoring or remembering someone special. Each December we “light up the library” with colorful strings of lights representing the many gifts that donors send. Often the gifts are tributes to friends or family, who receive notices from the Library that someone has given in their honor. All the donations allow the Library to buy new books and offer special programs during the year. Donors of $100 are recognized with a candle, and donors of $75 are recognized with a wreath, in one of the Library windows. Altogether, the lights, wreaths and candles turn the Library building into a beautiful symbol of the generosity of the season. To be part of the Holiday Lights appeal, please stop in at the Library or call at 283-3721 to get a brochure with gift form. You are also welcome to mail a check, payable to Friends of the Poestenkill Library, to PO Box 305, Poestenkill, NY 12140. Please provide a name and address if you want us to notify someone you are honoring. We also offer secure online giving at Happy Holidays!

BLOOMINGROVE DRIVE – POSSIBLE MALL ENTRANCE The North Greenbush Planning Board is holding a meeting and public hearing on Monday, December 5, 2016, at 6:30 PM concerning a modified site plan application that could affect all DeFreestville residents, particularly those who live on Bloomingrove Drive and in surrounding neighborhoods. The developer has submitted a modified site plan for the Van Rensselaer Square Mall at the northeast corner of Routes 4 & 43 that includes a request for approximately 100 additional parking spaces and the opening/development of the emergency, gated roadway entrance on Bloomingrove Drive as a public access mall entrance. Pertinent to this application is the Town’s recent acquisition of a $2.1 million grant to make “safety improvements” to the Bloomingrove/Route 4 intersection. Thus, there could be a plan for significant roadway changes to this area that coincides with the developer’s request to open the present emergency mall entrance on Bloomingrove Drive to public retail traffic. All interested residents should attend this Planning Board meeting and public hearing at 6:30 PM on Monday, December 5, 2016, at the Town Hall on Main Avenue in Wynantskill. - DeFreestville Area Neighborhoods Association
