A voice on license plate design -- but not on fees
Announcement of online vote accompanied by new replacement mandate ByLINE: DAVID LOMBARDO
CAPITAL DISTRICT - A potential license plate replacement requirement was tucked into Monday's announcement from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo that New Yorkers can vote on the state's next plate design. Online voting on the five options runs through Sept. 2 and the new plates will be available in April, at which time anyone with plates older than 10 years will be required to pay for replacements when they renew their vehicle registration. The plates will come with a $25 fee -- on top of the registration renewal cost -- and there will be an additional $20 fee to keep the same plate number. "License plates are a symbol of who we are as a state, and New Yorkers should have a voice and a vote in its final design," Cuomo said in a statement. "As the life span of the old plates comes to an end and we develop new ones that are as easy to read as possible, I encourage all residents to take part in choosing this piece of our state's history." The new plates will replace the traditional blue and white plates, which are no longer issued, and also the gold

plates that debuted in April 2010. More than 3 million vehicles in the state have plates that are at least 10 years old, according to the release. E.J. McMahon, research director for the fiscally conservative Empire Center for Public Policy, characterized the mandated replacement of license plates as a "stealth" way for the state to raise millions of dollars in revenue. "This is a revenue enhancer wrapped in a public relations ploy," McMahon said. Nearly 10 years ago, then-Gov. David Paterson tried to require New Yorkers to adopt the new gold plates as a way to raise $129 million for the cash-strapped state, but he was forced to abandon the plan following legislative pushback. Plates are produced by state inmates whose earnings top out at $1.14 per hour. The mandatory replacement measure will not require legislative approval. The release from the governor's office maintains that many older plates are difficult or impossible to read as the result of damage, oxidation and peeling. Clearly legible plates will be increasingly important as license plate readers become more heavily used for red-light cameras and cashless tolling systems. Motorists can be cited for an illegible license plate. Free replacements have been available in some circumstances, such as peeling. David.Lombardo@timesunion.com - 518-454-5427 - @ poozer87

Probation for lying to FBI Ex-Halfmoon official had accepted payments from an area developer ByLINE: BRENDAN J. LYONS
ALBANY - A former longtime Halfmoon Planning Board member was sentenced to a year of probation Wednesday after pleading guilty to lying to FBI agents about $85,000 in payments he had received from a developer who regularly had business before the town.
U.S. District Senior Judge Lawrence E. Kahn also sentenced Thomas A. Ruchlicki, 63, who was a board member for more than 15 years, to 50 hours of community service and ordered him to pay a $3,000 fine. Ruchlicki resigned from the Planning Board last year before pleading guilty to the felony charge. Ruchlicki was a collateral target in a languishing public corruption investigation targeting the business dealings of
Bruce Tanski, a politically active southern Saratoga County developer who had been one of the largest contributors to the town Republican committee and other campaign funds. Ruchlicki admitted he lied about a series of payments he received from Tanski when FBI agents interviewed him in January 2018 at the Watervliet Arsenal, where he had worked WILL WALDRON / TIMES UNION for many years.

Primary revote next week Cohoes Dems’ Fifth Ward election, marred by poll worker’s mistake, will be on ballot again on Aug. 27 ByLINE: LAUREN STANFORTH
COHOES - The two Democratic candidates running to serve residents in the city’s Fifth Ward have spent their summer going door to door in preparation for the unusual revote of their primary race next week. Adam Biggs and Kathleen Donovan are vying again Tuesday, Aug. 27, to be on the Democratic line for the Common Council race -- a redo of the primary after a poll worker allowed non-Democrats to vote at Holy Trinity Parish Center during the June 25 election. The race would have been left as-is if either Biggs or Donovan had a vote lead greater than the 19 votes that made up
the non-Democratic voters. But after an absentee ballot vote count, their race ended in a tie of 286 votes each. Both Albany County elections commissioners have previously said they do not believe there was intentional election tampering committed during the primary. They said a poll worker mistakenly thought that New York state primaries are now open elections. The invalid votes were discovered because the poll worker had the voters sign their names in the poll book when they could not be found in the primary’s voter roll. Both candidates say they are hoping for a good turnout during the special election, despite the vote being held the last week of summer and involving only roughly 1,200 enrolled Democrats. The Albany County Board of Elections sent notices to all Democrats in the Fifth Ward about the new vote date,

and Donovan said most people she has talked with are aware of the vote Aug. 27. “I thought people would not know or care about it,” Donovan said about the race. But, “when I was going door to door people knew about it, and that’s a good thing.” Biggs said he’s heard similar enthusiasm from ward residents. “They seem to be happy for the opportunity to vote in an untainted election,” he said. “Hopefully the novelty factor will get people to the polls.” About half of Cohoes Fifth Ward Democrats voted June 25 -- a turnout that was likely driven by the contentious primary for mayor. In that race, three candidates challenged Mayor Shawn Morse, who is facing a federal indictment on campaign Please see COHOES 18

Books for Troops Needs More Books CAPITAL DISTRICT - Books for Troops would once again like to thank all those who supported our “Adopt-A-Box” fundraiser. Even after the deadline, we continued to receive donations. The total donations were enough to send over 400 boxes of 40-50 books to our deployed troops and to those in the VA hospitals. It, also, enabled us put aside funds for special requests from the troops. However, in order to fill those boxes, we are in huge need for many more books. The donation of books has fallen drastically in the past few months. We have a special need soft-covered: mysteries, fantasy, history and biography, military non-fiction and fiction, mind body & horror. All other genres are always appreciated and used and needed. We also need Books on CD, puzzle books, CDs, magazines (especially car and health, or news magazines), and

LAWN GRUB CONTROL
Lawn grub control is one of the most confusing aspects of lawn care it seems. Do you treat in spring, summer, fall? Do I need to use chemicals? What if I told you that there is an organic grub control? Better yet, what if I told you that, once you start using the organic grub control that you’ll eventually be able to stop applying grub control at all? Sounds pretty good doesn’t it. Well, such an organic grub control actually exists. It is called Milky Spore. Lawn Grub. Milky Spore is a disease that only affects Japanese Beetle grubs. It won’t hurt earthworms or even a bird that eats a grub that has the disease. This makes Milky Spore much safer for the environment, your family and your pets and wildlife. It really is the only logical choice for lawn grub control. Milky Spore should be applied twice a year for three years to reach “epidemic” proportions in the soil. Milky Spore is best applied in mid-May and late August through early September when grubs are present in the soil. Grubs that hatch into your lawn contract the disease then die which reproduces the disease and spreads it throughout the soil. This happens over and over and soon the entire lawn is protected by the disease that’s spread by the dying grubs. Milky Spore is only a little more expensive up front but will last 20 years and longer once it takes hold. Not a bad investment and you’ll never have to worry about lawn damage from Japanese Beetle grubs ever A full inch of water. again. Like other grub control products get watered-in thoroughly IMMEDIATELY after application. DON’T COUNT ON RAIN TO DO THE JOB! Rainfall is never hard enough to get the chemical off the surface of the soil and down to the roots where the grubs are. Once milky Spore is out of its bag and spread on the lawn it begins to die once it is exposed to sunlight. Because it is sensitive to light, it is best to apply and water in Milky Spore right before dark. As soon as you put your spreader away after you apply Milky Spore, get the sprinkler out and soak the area with a full inch of water. No scrimping. Use an empty tuna ﬁsh or cat food can to measure the inch of water. When your sprinkler has ﬁlled the can, you’ve applied the correct amount of water. If you are treating a large area, only apply grub control to as much area as you can effectively saturate within a hour or so. It may take you several days working a section at a time depending on your watering system. That’s all there is to it. Not much effort considering all the time and money your saving versus annual applications of a chemical grub control. The fact that it so much better for the environment is a nice bonus as well. Thanks for the read.
finance misuse charges. Retired State Police Major Bill Keeler ended up defeating Morse in the Democratic primary by 106 votes, and is the presumptive next Cohoes mayor. Current Fifth Ward common council member Steve Napier is on the Working Families line in the mayoral race in November, but Napier endorsed Keeler to win the general election. The Cohoes Democratic Committee did not endorse anyone in the Fifth Ward race before the primary, and still hasn’t. But Donovan has some personal Democratic endorsements on her side, from Keeler, state Sen. Neil Breslin and state Assemblyman John McDonald. Morse’s campaign chairman, Tom Scarff, endorsed Biggs on Facebook. But Biggs said he is not being endorsed by Morse, and hasn’t spoken to the mayor since before the June 25 primary. “My approach has been I am running my own campaign. I don’t have public endorsements,” Biggs said. “It’s important for the voters to judge me based on me.” Money in the race is small, with Donovan raising $2,670 in campaign contributions and Biggs reporting taking in $800. Donovan spent some money on a mailer that she said should be hitting mailboxes starting Monday.

Mechanicville Area Community Services Center 50th Anniversary MECHANICVILLE Join us October 24th for an evening of music, food, and reminiscing. MACSC is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary in style and we’re throwing a party. You’re invited!
What: Redo of the primary to be on the Democratic line for the city’s Fifth Ward Common Council seat. When: Noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27. Where: Parish center behind Church of the Holy Trinity, 122 Vliet Blvd., Cohoes. Donovan, 57, retired last year as deputy Democratic elections commissioner at the Albany County Board of Elections. Biggs, 31, is a teacher at Bishop Gibbons High School. The Board of Elections is using employees to staff the poll Aug. 27, not poll workers. The board has said that is being done more as a cost-saving measure and not in response to what happened on Primary Day. Donovan said she’s slightly worried about the Board of Elections testing out new digital polling books during the revote -- before they will be used county-wide during the general election. But, Donovan said, “I suppose they have to try them somewhere,” she said. “We’ll see how it works out -- hopefully for the best.” Unlike the mayor’s race, there will still be a contested election for the Fifth Ward council seat in November despite whatever happens Aug. 27. The Democratic winner will face Republican and Independence candidate Christopher Davis. Biggs will also still appear on the Working Families line.
Calling EVERYONE who has been a part of MACSC over the past 50 years. If you worked, played, served on the Board, volunteered or visited, we want you to come join the party! Want an invite? Want to get first dibs on tickets? Do we know how to reach you? We need your CURRENT CONTACT information. Please send Holly LaTorre your e-mail address at hlatorre@ mechanicvilleacsc.org or give her a call at MACSC: 518.664.8322 x 1017.

The plea agreement signed by Ruchlicki last year required him to resign his Planning Board position by June 2018, and to not seek another position on a planning board for at least 10 years. He had faced a maximum potential sentence of five years in prison. In his January 2018 interview with FBI agents, Ruchlicki initially denied having “any financial relationships” with anyone involved in property development. But the FBI agents confronted Ruchlicki with bank records showing more than $85,000 in payments -- ranging from $500 to $25,000 -- that he had received from Tanski between June 2015 and September 2017. Ruchlicki told the agents that the payments were for an antique car that Tanski was purchasing from him, which was false, according to his plea agreement. Ruchlicki later admitted that Tanski had directed him to use the story about the car purchase if he was ever asked about the payments by law enforcement officials. The payments, according to the plea agreement, were for Tanski’s pending purchase of two parcels from Ruchlicki along Route 9 in Halfmoon, not far from Ruchlicki’s residence. Ruchlicki described the purchase agreement with Tanski as a handshake deal, and told the FBI one parcel was being sold for $50,000 and the other for $175,000. The payment schedule was not defined, but Ruchlicki told the FBI that he believed Tanski, who was identified in the plea agreement only as “Individual A,” would make “periodic payments.” Federal officials said that Ruchlicki had waited more than two years to disclose his business relationship with Tanski to the town, and did not recuse himself from voting on Tanski’s projects when they came before the Planning Board. Minutes of planning board meetings indicate Ruchlicki had voted in favor of multiple applications of Tanski’s during

the past several years. Ruchlicki was the second person to plead guilty in the investigation that has focused on Tanski’s business dealings with public officials and others on commercial and residential projects in Rensselaer and Saratoga counties. In an interview last year, Tanski denied directing Ruchlicki to come up with a cover story for the payments. Tanski acknowledged that he had a contract to buy at least one of the parcels, and had made regular payments for several years to Ruchlicki, but that the land sales were never finalized. FBI agents have probed Tanski and his dealings with town officials in Halfmoon for years. But the federal probe of Tanski is winding down, according to people close to the matter, and Tanski is not expected to face charges. In 2014, following a two-year investigation by the FBI and state attorney general’s office, Tanski pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in Saratoga County and admitted using six accomplices, including his employees, to conceal large political donations to then-Supervisor Melinda Wormuth at a time when she was seeking re-election. In February 2018, one of Tanski’s longtime business associates, Peter D. Amato of Albany, pleaded guilty to federal bank fraud charges in a plea agreement that identified Tanski as an unnamed “co-conspirator” in the alleged fraud. Amato, 65, was involved with several residential development projects built by Tanski in Brunswick, Halfmoon and Stillwater. Amato’s plea agreement indicated Tanski may have knowingly taken part in the alleged bank fraud, including submitting fraudulent application documents for construction loans of $14.2 million, $17.8 million and $9.9 million. Amato’s sentencing has been adjourned seven times at the request of the U.S. attorney’s office and is scheduled to take place on Oct. 3. firstname.lastname@example.org - 518-454-5547 - @brendan_lyonstu
