ALBANY - Tuition and fees at the University at Albany will rise $420 this coming school year for New York state residents, bringing the cost from $9,756 to $10,176. That’s part of a tuition increase for all of the State University of New York’s four-year campuses approved Thursday by the Board of Trustees. The tuition increases alone are going from $6,870 to $7,070 per year. The state legislature in 2017 allowed annual tuition hikes of up to $200 and the SUNY trustees have been raising them to that maximum each year. They say it’s better to put in annual predictable increases than, as they have in prior years, gone for a long time with no increases, which necessitated large jumps of well over $200. As one of four SUNY research universities, UAlbany is also increasing its “Academic Excellence Fee,” by $150 from $375 to $525. That helps support master’s and doctoral students, but is paid by all with the thinking that all students at UAlbany are benefiting from the opportunities of attending a major university with a full plate of research as well as graduate programs.

Owls safe at Kinns Road Park after bonfire Rains credited for dampening blaze in busy nature refuge ByLINE: JOYCE BASSETT
CLIFTON PARK - One year into the town’s continued commitment to preserve and nurture a 100-acre park, a series of events this spring can best be described as the good, the bad and the beautiful. The good: Clifton Park’s Justin L’Amoureux’s Eagle Scout project included trail sign improvements and the creation and installation of handmade wood benches. The bad: A large illegal bonfire in late May left scars near the scout project, a refurbished section of the park. The beautiful: Kinns Road Park is home again to another thriving owl family with little

On Wednesday, the owl family was photographed at the intersection of trails 4 and 7, close to where the nighttime bonfire roared. Posts on the Friends of Kinns Road Park Facebook page were dismayed but grateful the fire didn’t spread. “A good thing it’s been raining so much -- the dampness kept the fire from turning into a disaster, with all the dead wood in the forest,” wrote David Kalish, a longtime advocate of the park and a Times Union blogger. He noted the fire appeared to be very large and the leftover bottles, cans and Please see OWLS 14

puses are also research universities. Fees specific to UAlbany are going up $70 - half of that is for athletics programs and half for assorted services such as health and transportation. UAlbany students get free Capital District Transportation District bus fare covered by the fees. Even with the increases, SUNY officials say their costs are still below 28 other state public higher education institutions. Additionally, state initiatives such as the Tuition Assistance Program and the Excelsior Scholarship are designed to make SUNY tuition-free for middle class families. Created in 2017, the Excelsior Scholarship covers the “last dollar,” or amount of tuition that wasn’t paid for by other grants or scholarships and is available this coming year to families with incomes of up to $125,000. Out of state students attending SUNY campuses will be seeing larger increases especially at UAlbany and Binghamton. Tuition there will rise $950 bringing the cost from $23,710 to $24,660. That puts them on par with the two other research centers in Stony Brook and Buffalo. Just over 12,000 students from out of state attend SUNY’s four-year campuses and another 19,000 are from out of the U.S. firstname.lastname@example.org

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 Books for Troops, now in its 10th year. - Ellen Keegan and Books for Troops Volunteers

Did You Know? Many an amateur landscaper has encountered grubs while tending to their lawns, but even the most attentive green thumber may have a lawn infested with grubs and not know it. According to the pest and weed experts at Roundup®, grubs often go unnoticed until late summer, when they’ve already done substantial damage to a lawn. Oddly enough, one of the telltales
signs of a grub infestation is not the grubs themselves but the animals looking to dine on them. Fully grown grubs make for hearty meals, so homeowners who notice raccoons, skunks, armadillos, and/ or birds digging up their lawns may have a grub infestation. That’s because these unwanted guests like
to dine on mature grubs who have spent summer feasting on organic matter in the soil. Another sign of a possible grub infestation is a lawn that feels spongy when stepped on. Patches of dead grass that peel back easily are a sign that grubs have eaten the roots that keep healthy grass in place. Mechanicville

Restore Tusty Tools Many people may be tempted to discard rusty tools that have gone unused and sat in a garage or shed for a significant period of time. But tools encrusted with rust do not need to be relegated to the
trash bin, nor do gardeners have to toil for hours scraping and sanding off the rust. Thereâ€™s a much easier way to restore rusty tools that relies on a common household ingredient: vinegar. Pour vinegar into a deep enough vessel to submerge the metal part of the tool. Soak the tool overnight. The next day, use a scouring pad to rub
off the rust. If the tool is too big to fit into a can or bucket, simply wrap it with a vinegar-soaked rag and cover the whole tool with a tightly secured plastic bag. Follow the same procedure the next day. After all the rust is gone, rinse the tool in cool water and dry thoroughly. Then return it to regular usage.

tee and showcase a little bit of the Library along the great trails the town has to offer,” says Melinda Taormina, Head of Youth Services at the Library. “We hope this will encourage kids and their families to get outside this summer and enjoy nature and a good book!” The Nature Story Walk is scheduled, as follows: June 29-July 13: A Tree is Nice at Haye’s Nature Park July 13-27: Stella, Fairy of the Forest at Mohawk Landing Nature Preserve July 27-August 10: Our Big Home: An Earth Poem at Garnsey Park August 10-24: Miss Maple’s Seeds at Veteran’s Memorial Park For locations of each of the parks, patrons can visit www.cliftonparkopenspaces.org. More information about the program will be available on the Children’s page of the Library’s website.

empty firewood bags indicate it was teenagers or young adults looking to party tucked away in the dark forest, away from adult eyes. Town Supervisor Phil Barrett said he was unaware of the bonfire but said the parking lots of the town’s parks are regularly patrolled by town security. “The first thing we look for is cars parked in our park lots after hours,” he said. The bonfire garbage was picked up immediately by town workers. Barrett noted the partygoers could have entered the park from anywhere, including neighborhood backyards that line the outskirts. It is not the first time the park dodged a potential disaster. Kalish and other town residents in 2017 attended town and county meetings and worked together with town officials to stop a county plan calling for a money-making logging operation at the park. In June 2018, county and town officials formally finalized plans for the county to give its portion of the land to the town, ending the plan for logging. Now, the town oversees the entire ring of trails in the nearby soaring white pines and other Adirondack-native woodlands tucked in the northern portion of the town. “We are executing our long-term plan for the continued health of the park,” Barrett said. “BOCES has just been fantastic.” The park is plenty busy at all hours of the day and overuse is a concern. The town has issued 390 “dog off leash” oversized dog tags for the town parks. The tags are purchased for $30 for use at Kinns Road and another fenced-in park in the town, Mary Jane Row Dog Park. BOCES is working in conjunction with town officials to maintain the park. BOCES’ environmental conservation and forestry students cut down dead and diseased trees and maintain the loop of trails when dead trees fall. 6 pm • Meet Alexa & Siri - July 3 at 10 am.

An illegal bonfire in May at Kinns Road Park, Clifton Park.
Town workers grind the small logs into mulch, providing a soft pathway for hikers, joggers and even the Shenendehowa High School track teams during summer practices. In the winter, the Shenendehowa Nordic Club grooms the park for cross-country skiing. Those who enjoy the park regularly talk about the owls and give each other tips on where to spot them. That is made easy thanks to a 2014 Eagle Scout project by Bailey Moore, who mapped out trail distances, posted a sign with a trail map and installed numbered trail markers. The Friends of Kinns Road Park page on Facebook features images -- mostly of owls but of other critters and scenic pictures as well -- from nature photographers with zoom lenses to cellphone videos and photos. But the owls move from spot to spot, often in a group. The trick to finding the owls is to listen for a young owlet’s begging calls. The parents -- especially in the early evening -- have the distinct “Who cooks for you?” call that echoes into the adjoining Knolltop and Sherwood Forest subdivisions. “The park is a treasure,” Barrett said. “And we have a plan to keep it that way.” email@example.com - 518-4545636 - @JoyceB10Bassett

MONEY CONTINUED FROM 3
NPD Group. And nearly 2 billion food service deliveries took place for the year that ended in March, according to NPD. Here are a few tips on how to get a grip on it all.
Do an audit If you aren’t already tracking your spending, do so. Pay close attention to all the payments you make -- recurring or not -- and to the forms of payment: credit cards, Venmo, etc. Don’t guess. Research by Waterstone Management Group found that 84 percent of consumers underestimate how much they spend on subscriptions. Waterstone looked at 2,500 American budgets and found that while consumers estimated they paid almost $80 a month on certain subscriptions, they actually paid closer to $240. Subscription services are attractive because they’re easy to sign up for and come with minimal monthly financial commitment, said researcher Dhaval Moogimane. But small costs can add up, and prices can increase over time. “I’ve never worked with someone who after we calculated their expenses is spending less than they thought,” said Ryan. However, she said that sticker shock can often be a good call to action.
Consider the value
It’s time to decide if all these costs are worth it. This is a highly personal decision. Grant McOmie of Portland, Ore., said that he and his wife began to cut back last year to focus on paying down student loans. They decided ridesharing didn’t have a spot in their aggressive budget and they ditched Amazon Prime, Netflix and various music streaming services as well. “Ultimately none of these services were worth it,” he said. He estimates that over the past 18 months -- through taking the bus instead of Lyft or Uber, or making a meal instead of ordering delivery -they’ve saved around $5,000. In some cases, however, convenience can pay off. Sarah McLaughlin moved to Austin about a year ago and has yet to set foot inside a grocery store. She relies primarily on Instacart for her groceries and estimates she’s cut her monthly grocery spending by $200 by curtailing her impulse spending. Instead of picking up extras like magazines, makeup and prepared meals, she buys only what is on her list and is able to use online coupons to maximize her savings. So calculate what your convenience spending may be a substitute for and which is more costly -- Stitchfix versus

Some consumers have saved money using online grocery shopping. While there is a convenience fee, there is less of an chance to buy prepared meals or make other impulse purchases. This option also saves time.
shopping at the mall, for example; or Hulu and Netflix versus cable. Consider other benefits too: A timestarved parent may be thrilled to pay extra for food delivery. A pricey at-home workout subscription might be worth it to a fitness junkie. While these types of services sometimes get a bad rap, experts say many people are happy with the benefits they get. So how can you decide the value (financial and otherwise) for yourself? Utpal Dholakia, a professor of marketing at Rice University, has a simple suggestion. Ask yourself: If I didn’t have this service today, would I buy it again? If no, toss it. If yes, keep it and enjoy.
There are some actions you can consider to adjust your habits: • If you know you are ready to ditch something, unsubscribe or delete your account. Be prepared -- they will try to lure you back. • Add some friction. Even small steps to make payments less easy may curb your spending, such as eliminating auto billing or deleting an app on your phone. • Put all your subscription or convenience spending on one card to better monitor it, Moogimane suggests. Or cancel your credit card, forcing you to only update billing for the services you truly want. • Set an alternative goal. If there is something you want, such as money for a car or a down payment on a house, remember that when you are tempted to make a purchase. That can help keep your spending focused. • Go on vacation or do something else to disrupt your life. Dholakia said research shows the best way to break a habit is to change the context in which the habit was developed. So if you get meal kits each week, a vacation may change your routines and help shake your reliance on
them. “You have to be in charge of saying this is something I am not enjoying or using,” Dholakia said. “You can’t have someone else do it for you.” Do you use services such as music streaming, grocery delivery and ride-hailing? Do you have a plan for managing the costs of those services? Email responses to firstname.lastname@example.org and AP could use them for future stories.

All spring long we’ve had to mow our lawns at least once a week to keep up with its rapid growth. Like most of you, I’ve been mowing it low to try and gain some time between mowing. When the heat and dryness of summer arrive, we need to adjust our attitude and our mowing height. To help your lawn survive dry summer weather let it get taller…as tall as your lawn mower will adjust…4” Stop the low mow during the hot summer weather. to 5”. If you continue with the low mow, the sun will heat the soil to temperatures that will kill the roots of your grass. A lawn left long shades the soil. You may like the look of a shorter lawn, but if the soil temperature goes above 85° to 90° for three consecutive days, the root system dies. Once that happens, you’re looking at a lot of grass seed and a lot of watering in late summer and early fall to repair the lawn Raise your mower blade to its There comes a time when you just must water. highest setting. Traditional wisdom tells us that, for a lawn to remain healthy, it needs an inch of water a week. What you need to know, though, is that the lawn needs that inch of water all at once to get any real benefit from it. Water your lawn heavily then not at all for a week. With a limited amount of water available to most of us, we try and move the An inch of water once a week. sprinkler around the yard to make sure that we get the whole lawn watered at one time without any regard to whether it is getting enough water for more than temporary relief. If you have watering restrictions that only allow you to water every other day for two hours, let your lawn sprinkler soak one area for the full two hours. When your next watering opportunity arrives, move the lawn sprinkler to the next section and soak it with at least an inch of water. Folks with underground sprinkling systems need to follow the same advice. Set them up to soak one zone each day with an inch of water then do a different zone the next day. By putting an inch of water on the lawn, you’ll be soaking the soil to a depth of 6”. Water at this depth in the soil will not evaporate quickly, and it’s where the roots of the grass are located so it can be absorbed. Quickly spraying the lawn might perk it up briefly but most of that moisture is lost to evaporation and can never penetrate deep into the soil to get to the roots. At this point folks will ask, “How long do I need to leave the sprinkler on to put on an inch of water?” Since we all have different lawn sprinklers and water pressure, I can’t answer that question. This is something we must all determine on our own. You simply need to take a small, empty tuna fish can and place it in the area you’re watering. Don’t shut it off until it is full. Make a mental note of how long it took, and you’ll always know how long your setup takes to put out an inch of water. That’s it. Water deeply then take a break for a week. Thanks for the read.
