The following are highlights of the November 13, 2012 regular meeting of the Rensselaer County Legislature: City of Troy Fire Department to Receive Emergency Vehicle – To ensure the safety and well being of the citizens of Rensselaer County, the Legislature authorizes the purchase of a HAZMAT response vehicle which will be used for interoperability of communications as well as a HAZMAT First Response. The new vehicle will be based out of the Troy Fire Department and respond with a trained team of Troy firefighters. It will enhance the HAZMAT response and communications capabilities with the Rensselaer County Bureau of Public Safety at emergency incidents. Authorizes Purchase – To protect the safety of the residents, staff and visitors at the Van Rensselaer Manor, the Legislature authorizes the purchase of software for the entry system which will no longer interface with the employee payroll system comprising the security of the residents. The current system has not been upgraded since the original system was installed in 1996. Protects Residents – The Rensselaer County Legislature will urge towns, city and villages within Rensselaer County to cease the partial assessments on new built homes. Partial assessments are not required by law, drive builders away and place a burden on new home owners. The Legislature believes that when a home is completed and the Certificate of Occupancy has been issued, that is when a new home should be assessed for tax collection purposes. Introduced Legislation - A resolution providing for the distribution of Mortgage Tax – Over one point six million dollars of mortgage tax will be disbursed in Rensselaer County. The City of Troy will receive $243,072 for the period of April 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012 from the Chief Fiscal Officer.

(StatePoint) Holiday cooking is no easy feat. Meals tend to be more time-consuming and complex to prepare than standard fare. But by planning ahead, you can make all those delicious meals and treats in record time without undue stress. Stock Up Early Don’t leave your grocery shopping for the last minute. The stores will be overrun with other eleventh hour shoppers. The first thing you should do is to plan your menu in advance. Then take inventory of your fridge and pantry, and compose a detailed shopping list accordingly. When you’re crunching on time, the last thing you’ll want to do is run to the store because you forgot that crucial ingredient. Beef Up Your Kitchen Be sure your kitchen is well-stocked with the right tools to ensure proper execution of all those tasty holiday treats. Be sure your knives are sharpened and ready for the onslaught of meal prep. An extra set or two of measuring spoons and mixing bowls is also a great idea when you’re making so many dishes at once. You probably already have a food processor or traditional blender, but adding a hand-held immersion blender to your kitchen tool box will aid you in quick preparation of pureed soups, sauces and homemade whipped cream. The wrong gear can ruin a great recipe. Many holiday recipes call for zesting to add flavor and garnish to cookies, cakes, pies and drinks. If you’re trying to zest with a peeler or poorquality zester, you may be adding the bitter pith of citrus fruits to an otherwise delicious treat. Opt for a zester with vshaped teeth that skim across the surface of citrus. For example, the Edgeware Better Zester has non-stick coating, ensuring smooth zesting and easy clean up. More information on proper zesting can be found at Cook and Bake Ahead Not every kitchen task needs to happen on the day of your festivities. Lighten your load by prepping what you can beforehand. Bake cookies, brownies and breads in advance and store in the freezer with wax paper or an airtight container. Just be sure to let them cool to room temperature before storing. A sauce’s flavor improves with time, so prep your sauces a day in advance. Dice vegetables for side dishes ahead of time and store in plastic baggies in the fridge. Make a salad the day before and dress just before serving. Don’t let the joys of holiday entertaining be a cause for sorrow. Streamline your meal preparation with a little planning.

Navy Seaman Apprentice Steven C. White, nephew of Matthew Stevens of Troy, N.Y., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eightweek program, White completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “B attle Stations”. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ‘’Navy’’ flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. White is a 2011 graduate of Southern Regional High School of Manahawkin, N. J.

Home Improvement Guide

MAKE YOUR HOME FESTIVE THIS SEASON “This holiday season, the outdoors are in,” says Nicole Long, Manager of Inspiration for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. “Pine cones, evergreen, moss and grapevine can give your traditional décor a rustic, natural look.” If you’re having trouble getting inspired, here is an idea from the experts at JoAnn:• Fashion a hanging basket out of grapevine wreath. Place batteryoperated lights within the basket and fill with ornaments.
