Reinisch has plans in place ByLINE: JAMES ALLEN HIGH SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT

CLIFTON PARK - Jake Reinisch is a junior third baseman on the Shenendehowa baseball team. In his second varsity season, Reinisch has established himself as one of the premier hitters in the Suburban Council. Prior to beginning his junior year, Reinisch made an oral commitment to play baseball at Wake Forest University of

the Atlantic Coast Conference -- the same school where his father, Paul Reinisch, played. The Plainsmen (10-4 overall, 9-4 league) begin a crucial week of games Monday when they travel to take on Christian Brothers Academy (9-5, 9-5). Q: The team got off to a hot start and it hasn’t gone quite as well lately. What needs to change over the next 10 days before sectionals begin? Please see REINISCH 6

JIM FRANCO / SPECIAL TO THE TIMES UNION

Shenendehowa’s Jake Reinisch plans to play baseball and basketball as a senior, then stick to baseball at Wake Forest.

DA: Errors, not fraud, doomed Cohoes center Fiscal mishaps blamed for collapse that left 150 with no child care ByLINE: BRIAN NEARING

COHOES - Mistakes, not fraud, caused the financial collapse of the Cohoes Community Center last fall, according to an investigation by Albany County District Attorney David Soares. “Our investigation concluded that the Community Center was the victim of fiscal mismanagement ... not the result of criminal activity,” wrote Linda Griggs, chief of the district attorney’s Financial Crimes Bureau. Last month, Soares’ office delivered that finding in an April 16 letter to Cohoes Common Council President Christopher Briggs. On Friday, Briggs said the finding ought to “alleviate any community concerns” that the center was taken down by embezzlement or

other criminal acts. “This was a very unfortunate situation for many people, but there was no criminal liability in the closing of the center,” he said. For the district attorney’s office, Griggs wrote that center officials misapplied a grant for “School District Universal Pre-k” to 2017, rather than 2018. Mistakenly believing it had grant cash in 2018, the center then “increased staff and salaries” that it could not afford, forcing the facility to shut down in October 2018. Soares’ office had subpoenaed center financial records within days of its abrupt closure, which left about 150 local children without childcare services, and ended the jobs of 72 full- and part-time center workers. In March 2019, the board that ran the notfor-profit center announced it intended to sell the 28,000-square-foot building on Remsen Street, which was first opened as a community center in 1971

This spring, board Chairman David Mitola said the center remained about $375,000 in debt and was spending $12,000 a month on insurance, utilities and other expenses to maintain the building. In additional to providing child care, the center also operated a pool, exercise room and gymnasium. Briggs said the building remains up for sale. He said there are hopes that a new owner would be willing to “fold it into the community” much as the community center was. Mitola, who could not be reached for comment, had said publicly that the board was not getting accurate financial statements prepared by center staff. He said the board was unaware of the extent to which payroll was outpacing the center’s reimbursements. A month before the center closed, Executive Director Curtis Hovey was forced to resign. bnearing@timesunion­.com - 518-454-5094 @Bnearing10

REINISCH CONTINUED FROM 3

I sometimes find it amusing how our attitudes toward things change over time. I know we all look back at those pictures of us from the 70s, 60s and earlier and are amazed at the hairstyles and clothes we wore then. I’m sure that a lot of this has to do with the fashion industry and its need to keep us moving along from one trend to the next to ensure that we’re all in a constant state of desire to be “trendy” and all caught up on the latest fashions. You might not realize it but the same thing happens with plants. Some plants are popular for awhile and then they are replaced with another. You can go on the internet and find the “Perennial of the Year” and “Annual of the Year” for this and past years. Sometimes it is the color that makes the plant popular and sometimes it’s because the plant is a newly bred variety. Sometimes, just as in the fashion world, plants that were popular in the past enjoy a revival as new gardeners rediscover plants that their grandparents loved. There’s one plant though, that has suffered a fall from grace so complete that few of us are even aware that it was once one of the most well thought of plants on the planet. The plant I’m referring to is the ubiquitous dandelion. Like most of you, I loathe them in my lawn. I want my lawn to be green… not green and yellow or green and white. I’ll mow off the flowers and mow off the seed pods and even threaten to kill them with weed killer. Like most of you, I’m not a big fan of dandelions. I have a vague recollection of tasting dandelion wine that some older relative used to make. I also recall not being too impressed. I know that they sell the leaves in the grocery stores now. That’s not something that I think we had back in the 70s. So, what’s up with these weeds? It might surprise you to know that, at one time, there was NOT ONE dandelion growing on the entire continent of North America. Even knowing that, you’d probably assume that it was just an unfortunate accident that they’re here…they must have gotten here along with another plant or as a seed stuck to someone’s shoe. Actually, the dandelion, that scourge of our lawns that we detest so much, was brought here by European colonists intentionally. In fact, more than one group of colonists brought it with them to their new homes in America. Germans are known to have brought it with them and Spanish colonists introduced dandelions into Mexico including what is now the American southwest. The reason they made a point of bringing dandelion seed to the New World is because they depended on it to keep them healthy. The dandelion, which is actually a plant native to Asia, has a long history as a beneficial and medicinal plant. In China, it is mentioned in herbal texts as early as the 7th century. We can assume that it was used medicinally in China even earlier. In Wales, it is mentioned in the writing of physicians during the 1200s. A French physician gave us the name dandelion when he called them ‘dent de lion’ or ’teeth of the lion’ describing the ragged shape of the leaf. Other common names for the dandelion have been: Blowball, Cankerwort, Swine Snout, Wild Endive, Sin in the Grass and another French name, pis-en-lit which translates as “wets the bed”. This last name describes the dandelion’s ability as a diuretic. The Latin name for the dandelion is Taraxacum officinale which can be translated as ‘disorder remedy’. Dandelion leaves are a wonderful source of vitamin A as well as potassium, calcium, phosphorus and iron. Common knowledge of our ancestors was that the various parts of the dandelion can be used to treat urinary tract infections, abscesses, eczema, gout, boils, stomach aches and even snakebite. It has also been used to treat high blood pressure and as a liver purifier. The white sap in the flower’s stem has even been suggested as a cure for warts. The list goes on and on. I’m certainly not suggesting that you use dandelions medicinally but it makes for interesting reading. One would think that, since there are references to the benefit of dandelions about as far back in history as history goes, there might be something to all this. One thing is for sure, our ancestors were not going to the New World without the seeds of their favorite cure. It is no wonder that they are everywhere. We may have completely lost sight of the virtues of the lowly dandelion but they are still with us nonetheless. I’ll have to admit that tender young dandelion greens sometimes make it into the salads at my house. They are a little bitter but, when mixed with all the other greens, they’re pretty good. For some, it is an acquired taste. We once served some dinner guests salad with dandelion greens in it without their knowledge. They enjoyed the salad but called the next day to ask us, “What was in that salad anyway?” I won’t go into detail. Suffice it to say, THEY noticed the effect dandelions can have on the digestive system! Thanks for the read.

A: When we were winning, our confidence was high. We lost some games to some good teams and did not play badly. I think after we lost a few, we lost confidence and were looking for something to change. What we needed to realize is you can’t expect to win every game. We lost close games to Niskayuna, Ballston and Kingston. Those games happen. Q: You had a walk-off hit in the ninth inning in a 5-4 win against Columbia last week. I imagine that one had to feel pretty good, correct? A: Yeah, definitely. We lost to three really good teams in a row, so getting a win was big for us. It felt good to get a win like that. We came back and got big win under our belt against Colonie. Coach (Greg Christodulu) said he doesn’t think we had won at their field in 10 years, so to go in there and get one at their place definitely felt good. We played Shaker and lost (6-0). That was really the first time we lost where we played terrible. Games like Niskayuna and Ballston Spa weren’t great, but we did not play bad. In the Shaker game, we did not play well at all. Q: How valuable was it for you to be brought up to varsity as a sophomore? A: It was extremely valuable. There is a big difference being a first-year varsity player as a junior and a second-year varsity player as a junior. I know the pitchers and know what to expect. I am comfortable. Going through last year and being with the guys definitely helped me in a lot of ways. Q: Last summer, you attended a few showcase camps where college coaches are able to watch and recruit. One of them was at Wake Forest. Is there a level of irony for you that the school you ended up selecting is the same one your father attended? A: Yeah, I would say it is pretty ironic. I didn’t go in there thinking this is where I wanted to go. I was keeping everything open with all divisions, levels and schools.

Music Sundae CLIFTON PARK - On Sunday, May 19 at 6:30 PM, Shenendehowa United Methodist Church, 971 Rt 146 in Clifton Park, will offer “Music Sundae”, a concert featuring all of our church musicians.

I really liked the setup of the school. I liked the baseball program and the coaches. I wanted to play at the highest level I could and you can’t go wrong with the ACC. Everything there checked all the boxes for me. Q: I know it is still early yet, but have you thought about or selected a major? A: I want to work at a school because I want to be a coach some day. I have been thinking counseling and psychology. I believe psychology is one of the biggest majors at Wake Forest. Q: I know your dad was pushing you to go to Wake Forest, but I can’t imagine he was upset when you informed him of where you wanted to go? A: He was pretty happy. I have heard stories about when he played there and how good of an experience he had. It is cool to be able to do something your dad did. I know Ken Griffey Jr. was able to play games with his dad. I am going to get to play where my dad played. Q: The Class AA ranks have proven to be wide-open this season. How much are you looking forward to these playoffs when they start? A: It is going to be fun. Coach says we need to have a home game, whether we are seeded No. 1 or 4, that is important to have that first sectional game be a home game. We need to do what we can about that. We have got three big games this week with CBA, Bethlehem and Niskayuna. We have to take each game one game at a time. CBA, Bethlehem and Nisky are all playing for a high seed as well, so it is going to be a gut check. We’ve got to be ready to go. Q: In addition to baseball, you play varsity basketball. You are going to continue to do that, right? A: Absolutely. I love playing basketball. I have been playing basketball since I was in the second grade. I love the game and it is good to get away from baseball for a few months, shooting some 3s and having fun with my friends on the court. I really enjoy playing. jallen@timesunion.c­om - 518-454-5062 - @TUSidelines

COHOES - CDPHP is expanding its bike-sharing program into Cohoes, adding four locations in the city where bikes will be available for use, officials said. The first group of bikes was deployed outside the south side of City Hall at Mohawk and Ontario streets Monday.

Books For Troops Asks You To “Adopt-A-Box” CAPITAL DISTRICT - Books for Troops is holding a fundraiser called “Adopt-a-Box.” Held between our two most patriotic holidays, Memorial Day, (held this year on May 27th) and the 4th of July. In 2017 “Adopt a Box” was able to raise within a month’s time enough money to mail 165 boxes, although our goal had been only 100 within that 30 day period. To those unfamiliar with the term, coined by one of our original volunteers, “Adopt-a- Box” means to pay the postage of $15 to mail a box filled with books and other reading material to the deployed troops anywhere in the world or to 31 VA hospitals in the states or the one in Landstuhl Germany. Our goal this year is to have 150 boxes “adopted” within a 42 day period. In order to Adopt-Box, you simply make out a check to Books for Troops and mail it to: Books for Troops, 152 Oak Brook Commons, Clifton Park, NY 12065. We ask you to write on the memo of your check the words adopt-a-box so that your donation will we recorded as part of our fundraiser. If you want to adopt more than one box at $15 a box, they, too, will be counted in the numbers. On July 5th we will record on Facebook the number of boxes that were adopted. What a patriotic way to celebrate our nation’s independence than to remember those who are sacrificing so much to preserve it? As always, thank you for supporting our troops and

St. Luke’s Recovery Resource Center 4th Annual Wiffle Ball Tournament The St. Luke’s Recovery Resource Center (SLRRC) is proud to announce the 4th Annual Wiffle Ball Tournament will take

place at McBride Fields off Pruyn Hill Road on Friday, June 21st from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. There will be food, music during the games supplied by Dave McClements, sports memorabilia raffle prizes, vendors, good-natured competition, dignitaries, and much more. Again, the Saratoga County Sheriffs will play the Albany County Sheriffs for bragging rights. Last year, the Albany Sheriffs won. Will they be able to keep their title? Come to the WB Tournament and find out! The SLRRC engages with local and state resources in addressing the core causes and effects of the disease of addiction on the individual, their friends, family, and the larger community. It offers the parish facilities to recovery groups, who provide self-help and support for a life free from addiction. The growing numbers of people attending have become so large, the church has built an addition to accommodate everyone. Last year, the WB Tournament raised over $30,000. The hope is to beat that record this year. All proceeds will go to the SLRRC and will be used to support the mission and the work of SLRRC, as well as the building addition and programs of prevention. Any support would be deeply appreciated.

We ask that Memorial Day weekend not be the unofficial beginning of summer, but time to remember those who have given their lives in the cause of justice, freedom, and democracy.

The Poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds us of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms. National Poppy Day is a strong renewal of our nation’s commitment to a powerful reminder of the cost of our freedom. The red poppy became the symbol of the blood shed during battle following the publication of “In Flanders Fields� written by Lt. Col. John McCrae, M.D. while serving on the front lines during WWI.

Your Home Are backyard chickens right for you? Raising backyard chickens has been a growing phenomenon for several years. Many cities have passed laws legalizing backyard chickens, encouraging many to raise chickens as a rewarding hobby. One of the biggest benefits to raising backyard chickens is that their eggs are fresher and often tastier than store-bought varieties. Hens can lay one egg per day. Multiply that egg per hen, and breakfast is always available. Another benefit to chickens is they produce a natural fertilizer that can be used in gardens. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac” says chicken manure can be composted, aged and eventually added to the garden. In about six months, a person will accumulate about one cubic foot of manure per chicken. Egg shells and other compostable material can be added to create an even richer formula. Chickens also can help control bugs around the yard, offers the experts at Tractor Supply Company. Before investing in backyard chickens, people should

determine if chickens will fit with their lifestyle. Costs and care are a big consideration. Each chick will cost anywhere between $3 to $5 a bird. Then there’s feed to consider. The most expensive item will likely be the coop. The experts at The Happy Chicken Coop, a resource for raising chickens and starting coops, says handy men and women can build homemade coops, but ready-made ones will cost a few hundred dollars. The coop will need to offer around four square feet of space per chicken (or what’s recommended for the breed). Despite being seemingly independent birds, chickens need people to be active caregivers. They require feed and water daily. The chickens will need a caregiver while you vacation. People who are frequently away from home should reconsider chickens. Chickens also are prone to worms, parasites and lice. They need to have rear feathers trimmed to stay clean and sanitary, and they will require an area where they can “dust” and self-groom. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises not to cuddle and kiss chickens like pets because they can carry salmonella. Not every coop is completely varmint-proof, and some chickens may succumb to predators. Squeamish or sentimental folks may find chickens aren’t the right fit. Chickens require commitment and care that many people can provide. It is essential to do one’s homework to ensure that backyard chickens are a sound investment.

How lawns benefit from aeration Compacted soil can have a dramatic effect on grass. Compacted soil blocks oxygen, water and nutrients from reaching the root systems of the turf. That creates a lawn

with weak roots, which make grass more vulnerable to disease and compromising its ability to withstand harsh weather, such as summer heat. The buildup of thatch, which is a matted layer of grass clippings and other organic debris that collects on the top of the soil, is one indicator that a lawn could benefit from aeration, a process in which the surface of the lawn is perforated to break up compacted soil and allow oxygen, water and nutrients to reach root systems. Other signs that aeration may be necessary include patches of thin grass, brown spots and a high concentration of clay in the soil. When faced with a lawn that could benefit from aeration, homeowners may wonder if such as task lends itself to DIY or if it’s best left to professional landscapers. Aerating a lawn is not always easy, and typically it involves the use of one of three types of aerators: • Core aerator: A core aerator uses hollow tines to pull plugs of soil from the lawn. The plugs are left on the surface of the lawn. Homeowners can pick up the plugs or, according to the grass seed experts at Pennington, even leave them in the yard and allow them to break down. • Spike aerator: The experts at Pennington note that spike aerators employ solid, spike-like tines to poke holes in the soil. These aerators leave the spikes in the soil. Some people wear spiked aeration shoes while walking around the yard to mimic the effects of spike aerators. • Slicing aerator: According to Pennington, slicing aerators employ rotating blades that slice through thatch and down into the soil. These aerators leave the soil in the ground. Aerators can be operated manually, though professionals tend to use motorized aerators. The machines are often heavy, so homeowners should consider their health and physical ability before deciding to aerate on their own. Hiring a professional landscaper who has experience aerating may the quickest and most effective way to restore a lawn to full health.
