In order to enter Paradise, Jesus tells us we have to pass through the narrow gate. Discover where that is, and how we might fit in Pastor Henry’s sermon based on Matthew 7:13-14, and entitled “The Road Most Traveled.” Come be our guest this Sunday at 10:00 AM as we continue to celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and seek personal epiphanies of His love and grace for us. Love Lutheran Church is located at Middlesex Road and Pheasant Lane in East Greenbush.

PATRIOTISM BASIC NECESSITY of INTERNET SERVICE STILL NOT AVAILABLE IN POESTENKILL Letter to the Editor: As a Poestenkill resident living on 56 Road without internet, I was elated by Governor Cuomo’s remarks in 2016, to “dramatically expand and improve Broadband access statewide and ensure every New Yorker have access to high speed internet by the end of 2018”. However, time has now passed and I have come to realize that it takes more than a press release to make this a reality. Poestenkill’s franchise agreement with Time Warner expired in May, 2016. The renewal was postponed until the merger with Charter Communications took place. Conversations and meetings have followed with the most current taking place on January 20th. At that time, Supervisor Jacangelo and myself were informed that there would be no solid commitment on the part of Charter to hook up the remaining 139 residents that are still without service. Supervisor Jacangelo and I will continue to advance a new franchise agreement in the hope that we can find an approach that will allow Charter to reach the remaining homes in Poestenkill, and provide internet service to the many families that depend on internet for both their livelihood and their children’s education. State Senator Kathy Marchione has also made a commitment to town supervisors to host a meeting with Charter and the Governor’s Office for Broadband. For those of you with service who think this does not affect you, please consider this, people won’t build or buy homes where basic necessities are not available. Our tax base will stagnate and over time as expenditures rise, a tax increase becomes inevitable for those of us who remain. So in support of your community, write Governor Cuomo, and your State Legislators, impress upon them the fact that the millions of dollars they speak of has no impact for those of us who are being denied coverage. ~ June Butler, Poestenkill Town Board 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.
“OLD-FASHIONED PERSONAL SERVICE MEETING YOUR MODERN HEALTHCARE NEEDS” Young’s Pharmacy & General Store is an independently family-owned business nestled right in the hamlet of Averill Park on the corner of Route 43 and Burden Lake Road at the old Variety Store. You will want to come and visit our establishment not only for your healthcare needs, but also for our friendly atmosphere and unique local items. Once you walk in, you will be welcomed by the old-fashioned decor as well as the smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. As you explore more within the historic building, you will find in the back a hidden gem of Averill Park: Paula’s Country Kitchen. A typical myth that we often debunk is our “little guy” status. We are just as competitive as your big box pharmacies with just about everything. We are often asked, “How do we compete?” The answer is: “Old Fashioned Personal Service.” Our philosophy is simple; to treat our patients/customers the way we would like to be treated. We are proud to say that we know most of clientele on a first name basis and address each of their needs on a personal level. No individual is the same and their needs are certainly not the same. We compound prescriptions, take special orders on Over-The-Counter (OTC) items, and have free delivery for prescriptions. Some other services we provide here are: Medication Therapy Management, Immunizations and Compliance packaging. Our front end boasts a wide variety of local products including ceramic pottery, beaded jewelry, hand blown vases, handmade pizza cutters and ice cream scoops, greeting cards, locally roasted coffee beans, local dairy in glass bottles, and many more. You will be blown away from the delicious sandwiches, soups and dinner specials from Paula’s Country Kitchen. Also ask her about some of the delicious desserts and how she can cater your next family gathering!
Letter to the Editor: What does it mean to be a patriotic American? To many, it means supporting our troops, displaying the flag, defending our borders. I’d like to offer a larger and older vision of patriotism that is more in line with the principles on which our country was founded. It is based on the Constitution and its Amendments - particularly the Bill of Rights. It is grounded in respect for every person of every faith and color, and an understanding that democracy needs truth, freedom of speech and press to survive. The Founders applied reason and compromise to establish a republic governed by the rule of law, not by intimidation by the privileged or the uninformed mob. I believe that the election of Donald Trump demonstrates that we have lost this vision. President Trump has appealed to religious intolerance and fear with his efforts to stop immigration and refugees from Muslim countries when current vetting to weed out terrorists takes two years and works. Do we really want to be a people that denies refuge for child victims of the Syrian civil war? Do we really want to split up long established American families by deporting parents? Haven’t we progressed beyond our past shameful actions of denying entry to Jewish victims of the holocaust, or our wholesale internment of Japanese Americans during WWII? It has become clear (even to many Republicans) that President Trump has little respect for a free press, nor any understanding that a democracy needs to govern itself with facts, not distortions. He apparently does not understand how civil and democratic societies operate; his main tool is to intimidate nations that offer no real threat and belittle individuals who dare criticize him. America is losing the respect of the world, and soon itself. Is this the leader you really wanted? ~ Michael Roland, 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.

And I’ll try to answer any questions people might have about my work.” Fare includes a Miniature Home Baked Sweets Station. There will also be a Coffee & Assorted Tea Station. Hurry!

As legislative representatives of District 2, including the towns of East Greenbush, North Greenbush and Poestenkill, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions at the January 10, 2017 legislative meeting. The meeting was the first of the year and follows approval a few weeks before by legislators of the 2017 county budget. The 2017 county budget is the sixth consecutive budget to stay under the state tax cap, while protecting needed services and the county’s strong fiscal standing and bond ratings. Legislators continued our effort to protect taxpayers by supporting a resolution advocating for comprehensive reform of unfunded state mandates. We also supported a resolution supporting a proposal to provide $800 million in infrastructure funding to municipalities across the state. The Legislature also approved resolutions for the maintenance of trucks, including snow plows, and purchase of materials for snow removal during the coming weeks. We joined to present funding supporting to the Poestenkill Library, which will use the funding to provide WiFi to patrons. We also joined to provide funding support to the Sullivan Jones Veterans of Foreign Wars Post. We also joined with local elected officials for the opening in late January of the Community Resource Federal Credit Union near the intersection of Routes 4 and 43 in Defreestville. The schedule for meetings of the County Legislature in 2017 has been set, with legislators meeting March 14, April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, August 8, September 13, October 10, November 14, and December 12. Meetings start at 5:30 p.m. with public presentations, and consideration of the agenda at 6 p.m. Each month, legislators and other elected officials join with veterans for the Honor a Deceased Veteran ceremony. To nominate a veteran for recognition at this ceremony, please call 270-2760. 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 www.rensselaercounty.org.

Letter to the Editor: Last week I was given the privilege to publish “A Tribute to Old Pete”, a valued mentor who said “Paper takes ink., It has no conscience”; and explained that it is the individuals responsibility to discern the truth from deception. How ironic that between then and now I should receive the most recent edition of the National Geographic. And by striking departure from its legacy to explore the range of science, civilizations and geology, the NG has cover featured the lucrative and most current oddity; the transgender phenomenon. I would prefer the NG would cleave more toward the interests of extinct species, like myself for example. But if “extinct” were too harsh, perhaps obsolete would better describe those who could yet distinguish right from wrong, dissent from riot, earnings from looting, journalism from fake news or even male from female. Moreover, should such defunct species dare question the emergent terminology “virtual reality” which while hijacking the highest vestige of decency, is in “reality” a seductive fake? Alas, that lessening species who perceive the worlds dither as being deliberately induced and dare theorize the reason, are that obsolete species who yet cling to standards that were, are and will be. So I’ve decided to cancel my subscription. Not to this paper, but that of the NG. Because paper takes ink! ~ Lee King, 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.

FINDING YOUR FUTURE IN THE ATTIC Letter to the Editor: Being a pack-rat has its benefits. I get chided for not throwing things away, but when I think something still has some future value, I’ll put it in the attic. Attics are awesome. I remember going through my Grandparents’ attic when I was little and finding all sorts of wonderful but forgotten treasures. My Mom’s Girl Scout Handbook is now on my bookshelf, and I’m sure it will someday end up in my attic for one of my Grandchildren to rediscover among all the toys and what-not. Last week my son went on a treasure hunt through our attic looking for one of his toys that he wanted to now share with his growing family. Mom, Dad, brother and wife joined in the successful effort and all sorts of additional discoveries were made. My 70’s Hobbit and Goodbye California posters are getting a new life. I also found one of the inspirations for my becoming a citizen activist and taxpayer advocate: the 1995 edition of Forbes magazine’s “The 400 Richest People in America”. (Oprah was in it. The Donald was not.) The cover story was about the Robinson family of Kauai. They had been farming their Hawaiian land since the 1800’s but were being pinched by onerous taxation. They couldn’t afford to simply continue farming and had to consider selling part of their land to developers to pay taxes on the remainder. They weren’t alone. News stories were coming up from Long Island about elder residents being forced from their homes by the same onerous tax policies. Locally, the Rensselaer County Taxpayer Association was fighting to keep our school taxes from forcing people from their homes as well. Nothing has changed in the decades since. It’s only gotten worse. Why are we still taxing senior citizens out of their homes? ~ David Crawmer - www.republicamerica.us

As legislative representatives of District 4, including the towns of Schodack, Sand Lake and Nassau, we are happy to provide our constituents with a report on actions taken at the January 10, 2017 legislative meeting. Along with the meeting, we attended a meeting on January 26 called by the federal Environmental Protection Agency to provide information regarding the Loeffel toxic waste site in Nassau. Several years ago, the EPA assumed control of the clean-up process after several decades of oversight by the state. As elected officials representing the area, we are very frustrated with the overall lack of progress in dealing with the toxic contamination. Problems at the site have been known for more than 50 years, and residents living in the area have experienced many problems and difficulties. It is our hope the EPA will accelerate efforts to bring about a comprehensive and much-needed remediation of this problem. The January meeting follows the adoption of the 2017 county budget in December. The 2017 budget is the sixth consecutive county budget to stay under the tax cap, and we will continue our efforts to protect taxpayers during the coming year. We also contributed funds to The Anchor food pantry in Castleton to help with the annual Christmas donation to area families. The schedule for County Legislature meetings in 2017 has been set, with legislators meeting March 14, April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, August 8, September 13, October 10, November 14, and December 12. Meetings start at 5:30 p.m. with public presentations, and consideration of the agenda at 6 p.m. Each month, legislators and other elected officials join with veterans for the Honor a Deceased Veteran ceremony. To nominate a veteran for recognition at this ceremony, please call 270-2760. 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 www.rensselaercounty.org.
TOWN BOARD MEMBERS SWARTZ, BULT & KENNEY SAY LOVE LUTHERAN PROJECT WRONG FOR SCHODACK Schodack Town Board members Scott Swartz, Jim Bult and Mike Kenney said they do not support a proposal to develop property adjacent to the Love Lutheran Church, saying it would unnecessarily damage long-standing neighborhoods. The three board members said the proposal would create traffic problems, damage quality of life in neighborhoods in both East Greenbush and Schodack, and potentially cause a variety of environmental issues and concerns. The proposal by Love Lutheran to develop several dozen apartments met with opposition a few years ago. Town Board members Swartz, Bult and Kenney had also stated opposition to that proposal. Many residents have spoken out against the proposal by Love Lutheran to develop the apartments. Several dozen residents were in attendance at a Schodack Planning Board meeting on Monday. “This project is wrong for some of the most-established neighborhoods in the community, and would create a variety of problems and disturbances. We would like to see Love Lutheran withdraw the application filed with the town,” said Swartz. “There are also legitimate concerns about damage to property values for homes in neighborhoods around the site. We believe there are other far more suitable areas of town for this type of project,” added Bult. The three board members said roads near the site of the proposed project are not suitable. The Town of East Greenbush has also declined to provide sewer service to the project. “Many of the residents who live in these neighborhoods have lived here for decades, and in some cases, had parents and family who lived here. The configuration of the neighborhood has been unchanged for decades, along with the quality of life, and should be left that way,” said Kenney.

GOFF DRAMA CLUB TO PRESENT SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN JR.
L to R: Legislator Gary Pavlic, Principal Michael Piatek (St. Mary’s Academy, Hoosick Falls), Principal Susan Merrill (Sacred Heart School, Troy) Principal Danielle Cox (St. Jude’s the Apostle, Wynantskill), Principal Christopher Bott (Catholic Central High School, Troy), Deputy Minority Leader Ed Manny and Minority Leader Peter Grimm On Tuesday, January 10, 2017, at their monthly meeting, the Rensselaer County Legislature passed a resolution in honor of Catholic School Week. Members of the Legislature presented the resolution to several Catholic School principals attending a ceremony at Catholic Central High School on Friday, February 3, 2017. This year’s theme: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service”.
I believe staying in touch with constituents is an important part of serving in elective office. This monthly report is an example of my commitment to keeping residents informed of the activities of the Schodack Town Board. At our annual organizational meeting held on January 12th, the Town Board approved several staff appointments to key leadership positions in town government as well as appointments to the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and Board of Assessment Review. I congratulate all of the appointees and thank them for dedicating their work life to the important mission of public service. Our dedicated workforce deliver essential town services such as police protection, emergency medical services, building and code enforcement, street operations and maintenance, operation of parks and recreation programs, and library services. A special thank you to our town highway workers who did an excellent job in plowing our roads during the recent snow storm. Thanks to their efforts, local residents were able to travel to their destinations and return home safely to their families. During January, the Town Board adopted a resolution that provides funding support to the Edward C. Swartz Southern Tier Senior Center and Castleton Senior Citizens to continue offering valuable programs devoted to our elderly. We also executed a contract with the Peter J. Andrews VFW Post in Castleton to administer programs that benefit our veterans. To see how I voted on every resolution adopted in January and my reasoning behind each vote, visit www.facebook.com/ TRexForSchodack. I believe the work of a Town Board member goes beyond attending meetings and casting votes on resolutions. To me, it is also important to be actively engaged in our community, attending events, and supporting local organizations and good causes. Thank you to the dedicated volunteers of the Castleton Fire Company who do such a great job of cooking and serving food at their monthly breakfast. This event provides local residents with an affordable and enjoyable meal with friends and family. Mark your calendars for the remaining breakfast meals of the season: March 5th, April 2nd and May 7th from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
Singin’ in the Rain Jr. is playing at Columbia High School on Friday and Saturday, March 17 and 18, at 7 p.m., and on Sunday, March 19, at 2 p.m. Presented by the Goff Drama Club, it’s adapted from the 1952 classic film the American Film Institute named the number one best movie musical of all time. The Goff Drama Club cast is comprised of over 60 students and is led by Lorraine LaVoie, Rebecca Stevens and Hannah Decker. The musical takes place in Hollywood, during the last days of the silent movie era. It follows the story of Don Lockwood— one half of the blockbuster celebrity silent movie star “couple” Lockwood and Lamont—and the extreme measures that are taken when his co-star’s high-pitched, nasal voice threatens the duo’s successful transition into talking pictures. Performances are open to the public. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors.

20 Years Experience!
SHIRT COLLAR FACTORY TO RACE HORSES During the months of February – March, the Poestenkill Historical Society is featuring an exhibit based on the lovely home, very near the Firehouse. In 1780, The Lyn Family purchased 79 acres from Van Rensselaer. The tower you see on the property today was once a shirt collar factory. We have pictures today showing the women who worked there. The Lyn family then sold the property to the Holser family….and the farm was worked through three generations of the Holsers. They became well known throughout the world for their white leghorn chickens. They shipped these chickens to countries like China and Ethiopia, as well as throughout the US. John Holser then began raising prize bulls/Holsteins. From there he ventured into race horses. John was born in 1908 and died at the young age of 59. His property was then auctioned. We hope you will stop in and see our wonderful display of pictures, literature and prize-winning ribbons. We are open on Monday from 11–3; Saturdalys 1–3.

Greetings and best wishes to everyone in the City of Rensselaer. As Rensselaer’s representative to the County Legislature, I am happy to report to you on the actions taken by the Rensselaer County Legislature at our January 10, 2017 legislative meeting. Rensselaer is home to many outstanding youths. I sponsored a resolution commending the Rensselaer Pop Warner Junior Varsity cheerleaders, who qualified for national competition in Florida. The meeting follows approval by legislators of the 2017 county budget. The 2017 county budget is the sixth consecutive budget under the state tax cap, while protecting needed services and the county’s strong fiscal standing. Work was underway during January on installing a ramp in the legislative chambers. The ramp will make the chambers more accessible, and follows improvements to lighting. The improvements and changes were done at reasonable cost. There was a meeting on January 24 regarding the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline. I was represented by a legislative colleague and a staffer. The proposed pipeline would cross the Hudson River twice in or near Rensselaer, and create various environmental and quality of life disturbances. I have opposed the pipeline and will continue to work to protect our community. The schedule for meetings of the County Legislature in 2017 has been set, with legislators meeting March 14, April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, August 8, September 13, October 10, November 14, and December 12. Meetings start at 5:30 p.m. with public presentations, and consideration of the agenda at 6 p.m. Each month, legislators and other elected officials join with veterans for the Honor a Deceased Veteran ceremony. To nominate a veteran for recognition at this ceremony, please call 270-2760. The Boys and Girls Club in Rensselaer is holding bingo on Friday nights at the Club, starting at 6 p.m. 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 www.rensselaercounty.org.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK CAM ROBERTS ~Most Dedicated~
Sports Photo of the Week by Andy Flanagan
by: Heidi Schuman
Did you miss your opportunity to tryout for a 12U travel softball team?? Well now is your chance! Classie Lassie Cyclone is holding tryouts on Sundays thru 2/26/17 at Algonquin gym, 911am. This travel team is local travel only, playing in the Hudson Mohawk league, local tournaments and one away tournament. Please contact Chrissie Mieczkowski (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions, hope to see you there!!
This week’s Most Dedicated Athlete of the Week is Cam Roberts! Cam wrestles in the 120lb weight class for the APHS Varsity Wrestling team. This is Cam’s fourth year on the wrestling team. Cam says his favorite part about wrestling is the rewarding feeling of a hard-fought win. However, the team must endure long practices each day to stay in shape both physically and mentally. “To wrestle well, you need to be mentally tough, so building mental toughness has helped me over the years,” Cam explains. Cam’s favorite wrestling moment was receiving the third-place patch at the Class B Wrestling Tournament. He hopes to get another patch from the tournament this year. Cam also plays varsity soccer for APHS. This past season, he was a captain of the team. To prepare for his wrestling and soccer seasons, Cam runs, lifts, and participates in off-season leagues. Cam works hard in school as well. He maintains an 85 GPA and takes a variety of classes including Bio-Gene, Physics, Statistics and Economics. “To do well in school and sports, I work hard and get plenty of rest,” Cam says. “I also always make sure to find time to do the work I need to do.” After high school, Cam plans on going to Hudson Valley Community College. Cam’s teammates, coaches, and classmates are always there to provide him with motivation. “My coaches and fellow wrestlers help me to do my best at wrestling by always encouraging me. They are there to support me whether I win or lose,” Cam explains. When asked what he would say to a younger wrestler, Cam says, “My advice would be to stick with the sport. There’s going to be ups and downs, but keep pushing and keep your head up, no matter what.” Best wishes to Cam as he continues his senior year at APHS!

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine state that researchers at the University of Michigan surveyed nearly 400 people to determine which foods most commonly cause them to lose control. Cheese pizza appealed to 116 people beating out everything from cookies and ice cream to chips and chocolates. Why is cheese so addictive? Besides the salt and fat, cheese contains milk which contains caso-morphins which attach to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and narcotics. Katherine, an Air Force Aerospace Engineer, lived on cheese; macaroni and cheese, cheese pizza, double cheeseburgers, etc. She suffered for years from excruciating pain during menstruation. Even though she wanted children, her doctor recommended a hysterectomy. Before agreeing, Katherine sought the advice of a nutritionist who advised a plant-based diet: no cheese, meat or eggs. Katherine felt better and after six weeks her doctor found her disease had regressed eliminating the need of a hysterectomy and today Katherine has two children. Join us Wed., Feb. 22nd, for vegan cake and ice cream for the 5th birthday party of The Glendora Vegetarian Club at 6pm, 45A Elm St. in Nassau Village. 518-610-5810. ~ Glendora 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.
