Mechanicville records denial ‘obstinate,’ judge says ByLINE: WENDY LIBERATORE

MECHANICVILLE - The city and its commissioner of accounts have been rebuked for failing to produce documents in what a state Supreme Court judge described as the “intentional disregard of its obligation” under state Freedom of Information Law. On Aug. 28, Judge Thomas Buchanan ordered the city and Commissioner Kimberly Dunn to fulfill FOIL requests from Val Serbalik and North Main Street LLC within 20 days. The requests seek records revealing the costs associated with the

city’s renovation of the senior center. Buchanan also ordered the city to pay the legal costs incurred by Serbalik and the LLC. The city and the commissioner “have not complied with their obligation under the Public Officers Law, and they continue to fail to comply,” the judge wrote. The court also noted that the city and Dunn did not provide “pertinent and material facts showing the grounds of their actions” and that “they have remained obstinate.” Neither Dunn nor Mayor Dennis Baker Please see FOIL 19

WILL WALDRON / TIMES UNION

The costs of the renovation of the Mechanicville Senior Center were at the center of a Freedom of Information Law request to the city. A judge said the city must turn over records sought by a property owner about those expenses, said to top $80,000.

Quick and simple ways to make a front door pop

Visitors’ impressions of a home are often dictated by the home’s entryway. Must as one may judge a book by its cover, the same can be said about the impression that a front door and entryway can create, regardless of how accurate that impression is. Making certain changes to an entryway can go a long way toward improving curb appeal. Entryways also can set the scene for a home’s interior.

ious ways to quickly transform a home’s entryway. • Bold front door color: Color can dramatically enhance an entryway. Painting an existing door or replacing it with a more vivid option can do the trick. The DIY Network says certain colors stand out as favorites. These include turquoise, yellow, red, indigo, orange, and black. The door color should complement the other shades of the home, such as those on siding and trim. • Custom walkway: Guide guests right to the front door with an attractive (and safe) walkway. Stamped concrete or decorative paver blocks may fit the bill. This walkway can extend to the street or to the driveway. • Contain plants. Landscaping around the entryway should be neat and well-tended. Overgrown plants or shrubbery may give off an air of neglect. Container plants and carefully curated shrubs can create a neat and inviting aura. • Highlight the address. Make sure the home can be found easily with bold and decorative house numbers. Consider two different address signs: one illuminated and easily viewed from the curb, and another closer to the front door. • Utilize high-end materials. The relatively small area of real estate by the front door enables homeowners to splurge on more opulent materials that can really add a feeling of luxury. These can include colorful tiles, ornate planters, decorative wooden doors, or elaborate knobs and lighting fixtures.

• Add architectural details. Find out which architectural elements will meld with the style of the home and then incorporate them. Moldings, columns, shutters, and trim are areas to consider.

Easy ways to clean up leaves

Autumn is marked by colorful foliage and plummeting temperatures. Once those leaves reach peak color, they fall from the branches and collect on lawns, necessitating cleanup projects. For homeowners with big yards, such a project can be tiring and time-consuming. However, there are ways to make leaf cleanup easier. One of the easiest ways to clean up leaves is to reach for a lawn mower rather than a rake. The mower will cut leaves down to smaller sizes, creating an effective mulch that can add nutrients back into the lawn. Davey, a lawn and landscape solutions service, says that mowed leaves also can be collected in a mower bag and added to garden beds or compost piles. For those who prefer manual raking, select a rake with tines that will not skewer the leaves in the process. Big rakes also can make faster work of gathering leaves into piles. The home improvement resource The Family Handyman advocates for the use of a lawn sweeper. This is a manual device that has a rotating sweeping brush that gathers up lawn debris and leaves into an attached hopper bag. Like mowed leaves, the bag can be emptied into a compost pile or distributed where needed. Raking leaves onto a large tarp is another option. Once it’s full, the tarp can be taken to the curb where many towns will collect the leaves seasonally. Otherwise, the tarp can be used as a funnel to put leaves into a gardening bag or another appropriate receptacle. • ADDITIONS • KITCHENS Leaf blowers remain a fast option for cleaning • SUNROOMS • FLOORING up yards, but they require • BATHROOMS electricity or gas and can be noisy.

3 factors to consider when choosing a mortgage lender A home is the most significant purchase many people will ever make. Perhaps because of that, many buyers, particularly those purchasing a home for the first time, are understandably nervous about the home-buying process. The decision regarding which home to buy warrants ample consideration, but so, too, does the buyers’ choice of lender. Mortgage lenders can be found all over the internet, and the sheer volume of lender options can make it hard for home buyers to find the right fit for them. Couple that with lending-related terminology that many first-time buyers may be unfamiliar with, and it’s easy to see why prospective homeowners can feel overwhelmed about the process of borrowing money to buy their homes. When looking for a mortgage lender, prospective homeowners should never forget that the choice of lender is, in most cases, entirely theirs to make. When making that decision, a host of variables should be considered. The following are three such factors that, upon ample

consideration, may help buyers rest easy knowing they did their due diligence when looking for lenders. 1. Reputation/recommendation Just like other businesses, lenders have reputations, and oftentimes those reputations can be determined via some simple online research. Peruse online reviews to determine what past buyers felt about a given lender. If possible, ask friends, family or colleagues who they worked with to secure a mortgage. 2. Fees Fees vary from lender to lender. Fees should not be mistaken for interest rates, which change daily and are typically dictated by the financial industry and prospective buyers’ credit history and financial standing. When speaking with potential lenders, ask for a rundown of their fees, and the services those fees include, and closing cost estimates in writing, then compare and contrast fees and costs of various lenders before making a final decision. Some lenders may charge considerably more in fees than others, so buyers should put in the effort necessary to comparison shop. 3. Personal interaction Buyers, especially those who have never before purchased a home, will likely have lots of questions. This is where personal interaction with a prospective lender should be noted. Securing financing for a home purchase can sometimes seem like an impersonal process, but it

DOT officials couldn’t immediately provide details on the timing of ramp openings. The cost of the project, according to the DOT website, is $32.2 million.

The first of the new ramps opened without fanfare Sept. 27 to carry traffic from Albany Shaker Road to the southbound lanes of the Northway. By early last week, other ramps, including those on the new flyover, appear nearly complete. Drivers should notice improvements in traffic flow, according to DOT data. It estimates that afternoon traffic delays around the busy Wolf Road and Albany Shaker Road corridors will be reduced by more than half, while morning delays will be reduced by nearly 30 percent. Vehicles entering the Northway northbound at Exit 4 will have a new lane that will continue to Exit 5. A noise-buffering wall is now under construction to shield residents on nearby Old Niskayuna Road from traffic. The exit improvements, including the new Exit 3, are part of $100 million in projects that also include a new 1,000-vehicle parking garage at Albany International Airport, as well as terminal building improvements. While the structural elements of the five-story garage are in place, plumbing and electrical work remain to be done. A new entrance ramp to the garage and a pedestrian bridge to the terminal are also under construction. The airport projects are expected to be completed by March. eanderson@timesunion.com - 518-454-5323

Blueshield opens local Medicare centers to aid in-person enrollment ByLINE: BETHANY BUMP

MALTA - A Colonie-based health insurer is opening two storefronts in the Capital Region that will focus exclusively on helping people enroll in Medicare Advantage plans. BlueShield of Northeastern New York is opening the so-called Medicare Centers at the Shops of Malta at 13 Kendall Way and at Guilderland's Price Chopper Plaza at 1704 Western Ave. A ceremony to celebrate the openings was held Tuesday at the Malta storefront. The centers will help adults age 65 and older navigate their options when it comes to enrolling in Medicare Advantage, a type of Medicare plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare. BlueShield said local data show that 85 percent of Medicare Advantage members prefer human interaction when enrolling in a plan. Beginning Tuesday, Medicare Advantage plan options for 2020 became available with the opportunity to enroll from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Once enrolled, new plans will take effect Jan. 1, 2020. Interested individuals can call 1-833-235-4050 any day of the week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for more information.

Can EOC Help You Celebrate Thanksgiving This Year? SARATOGA COUNTY Saratoga County residents who may need a hand this Thanksgiving are encouraged to reach out to Saratoga County Economic Opportunity Council (EOC). EOC provides over 800 Thanksgiving baskets each year to neighbors in need. Each basket contains fresh produce, including potatoes, apples and carrots, as well as the staples every Thanksgiving meal needs like stuffing and gravy. A gift card is also provided to help buy a turkey. These baskets are available to families who will have two or more people for dinner.

Households with one person are encouraged to call EOC and sign up for a delivered Thanksgiving meal. A full Thanksgiving dinner will also be available at EOC’s Soup Kitchen housed at the Presbyterian New England Congregational Church located at 24 Circular St. in Saratoga. Everyone is always welcome at the soup kitchen. To sign up, or to learn how to help EOC make sure no one goes hungry this Thanksgiving, visit saratogaeoc.org/ thanksgiving or call 518288-3206. Register for a basket by Friday, Nov. 1.

Are You Looking to Give Back This Thanksgiving? SARATOGA COUNTY - No one should be hungry on Thanksgiving. Saratoga County Economic Opportunity Council (EOC) works hard to turn that into a reality by providing Thanksgiving baskets to over 800 families in need throughout Saratoga County each year. But we cannot do it without community support. There are a wide range of ways to help EOC provide a Thanksgiving meal to thousands of our neighbors. · Make a monetary donation. EOC is able to secure certain items in bulk at a much lower cost than retail prices. Your donation of $45 provides a basket to a Saratoga County family in need. · Host a food drive with your school, church, organization or workplace. There are certain items

such as pie crust mix, biscuit mix and coffee that really make a difference to families on Thanksgiving Day that EOC may not be able to secure in bulk. EOC is happy to provide a shopping list and food drive flyers. · Be a Donation Coordinator Volunteer. This position includes soliciting and coordinating donations of fresh produce. · Be a Clerical Volunteer. This position includes inputting applications, placing reminder phone calls and tagging and organizing the baskets. This is a great long-term opportunity for the fall. · Be a Packing and Distribution Volunteer. This position may include tasks like unloading the food, getting ready for the packing event, packing the bags just before Thanksgiving and helping distribute the baskets to families. To make a donation, print a food drive flyer, look at the shopping list or sign up to be a volunteer, visit us at saratogaeoc. org/thanksgiving or email

season trying to fill that role. Q: How have you taken on and embraced the role of captain? A: Being a captain is a big role. I think going into the season, I looked back being a sophomore and the players I looked up to then the most. I went in wanting to be the same type of person they were for me. I wanted to be a good leader for the underclassmen, letting them know they could come to me and count on me to look up to. Q: There is a little more responsibility on you in terms of not only leadership, but from a production standpoint as well. How do you feel you have handled that so far? A: I think I have handled it pretty well. Going out there being my senior year, I want to make it count and not look back and say I didn’t give 100 percent. I want to do what is best for the team and let the outcomes come. Q: How do feel knowing your coach Holli Nirsberger has so much confidence in you to shift you to striker if the team needs a goal? A: It makes me feel so good. In order to have that confidence in myself, I have my coaches and the whole team that have confidence in me. It really helps me perform at my best. Wherever she puts me, I take it on with a positive attitude and do what I do best. Q: When you began playing soccer, what kept your interest in it? A: I started playing when I was five. I think every time I went on the field, even at that young age, I just had fun with it. There was never a time where I went to a game or a practice thinking, ‘wow, I really don’t want to do this.’ I was always eager to get on the soccer field and eager to make myself better. It is a fun sport that will always be a part of my life. It is part of who I am. Q: Why are you so relentless out there? A: I think it goes back to wanting to give my all, not give up even if we are down and to walk off the field knowing I gave it my all. Q: We are nearly at the end of the regular season. You have been a part of

championship team as a sophomore and another that lost in the final. What do you hope to accomplish in the playoffs? A: I think the biggest goal is sectionals and beyond. That is what we are always going for. The recent losses we’ve had have been lessons for us and motivated us more to be better. I think going into the postseason, we want to finish the regular season off with some wins. Q: I would imagine if you did win a sectional title, it would mean a lot to you because this is such a young team, correct? A: Yes, it would mean the world to us. Even being on the team so long, coming off a sectional win as a sophomore, I wanted to do the same as a junior. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Being my last year and knowing I won’t be able to put on that Shen uniform next year, it would be amazing to win sectionals and hopefully go all the way. Q: I know you are visiting colleges right now. Where does your recruitment stand? A: It is good. I still have a few overnights and visits to go on before I make my decision. The one thing I definitely know is I want to play soccer in college. I am just trying to find a school that fits me both academically and athletically. I am finishing off the visits and hopefully will have a decision made soon. Q: Have you settled on a major yet? A: I am thinking either education or psychology. I think for the longest time, I have known I want to work with kids. Q: Is it difficult to believe your high school career is nearly concluded? A: Yeah, it is actually so sad in a way to think about that, but it is also motivation to make these last games count. I am going to try and do my best. I want to make this season go as long as I can and make the most of it. Q: Regardless of what happens the next few weeks, how much have you enjoyed your career? A: I have enjoyed it so much, from JV, varsity and club soccer. I have had amazing coaches that not only wanted the best for me, but have made me a better player. I cannot imagine my life without the game in it. jallen@timesunion.com - 518-454-5062 - @TUSidelines

FOIL CONTINUED FROM 3

responded to the Times Union’s requests for comment on the decision. But in a twist, court papers revealed that the city blamed Serbalik, who used to work as the its attorney, for not fulfilling the FOIL submission. The city argued Serbalik gave them bad legal advice, such as the notion that “FOIL matters did not have to be addressed under the time restraints imposed by the Public Officers Law, and that the consequences were not serious,” according to court documents. Serbalik said that the law is stringent, but was asked by the city in 2017 what would happen if the city didn’t acknowledge receiving a FOIL request within the five-day time limit set by the law. “I said the courts aren’t particularly concerned with a violation of a minor nature of five or 10 days,” Serbalik said. But “I never told them they don’t have to

answer a FOIL.” Buchanan said whatever advice was provided by Serbalik, its content “is not before the court” and “does not change the law.” Serbalik has yet to receive his FOIL information on the renovations of the Mechanicville Senior Center, which he said “reputedly exceeded the sum of $80,000.” Before going to court, he filed two requests (March 14 and April 11) for the applicable records. He also said that the court order, though signed in August, was not received by him until Tuesday -- giving the city even more time to fulfill the request. “There is no need to take more legal action at this time,” he said. When asked why he was seeking the information, he said it’s his right to know how taxpayer money is being spent. “We are taxpayers and own considerable properties in the city,” Serbalik said. “It’s appropriate as a taxpayer.” wliberatore@timesunion.com - 518-4545445 - @wendyliberatore

COPS, COURT AND FIRE CALLS Man fled crash scene, police say BALLSTON SPA -- A Schenectady man is facing felony charges after he allegedly crashed into a utility pole in Ballston Spa and fled the scene. Robert L. Salisbury, 30, was charged with felony DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and misdemeanor operation of a motor vehicle without a required ignition interlock device, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office on Monday. Deputies said they were called to the hit-and-run on West High Street near Route 50 shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday. Officials searched the area and found the vehicle in a parking lot off Route 50 near Brookline Road. Salisbury was arraigned in Ballston Town Court and taken to Saratoga County jail. -- Amanda Fries

Federal prison for child sexual exploitation

Claverack burglary suspect located

ALBANY- A Columbia County man was sentenced Friday to 35 years in prison for sexually exploiting a child and possessing child pornography, authorities said. Senior U.S. District Judge Norman A. Mordue ordered that the sentence of John G. Stroming, 60, of Stuyvesant run consecutive to a state term of imprisonment Stroming is serving, according to the U.S. Attorney's office, State Police and FBI. The federal sentence should begin in 2027, when Stroming's state sentence is scheduled to end. Stroming was convicted in May after a two-day jury trial. The evidence showed Stroming videotaped himself sexually abusing a 19-month-old and that he also had child pornography involving other children. At the time of the crimes, Stroming was required to register as a sex offender. He has sex offense convictions including for rape in the second degree (2011) and promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child (1999), authorities said.

'Grandparents scam' still investigated COLONIE -- The Colonie Police Department said last week it's still actively investigating the recent reports of a "grandparents scam," where scammers pose as a troubled family member to try to get money. There have been no arrests, but several leads have been developed that may lead to future prosecution of the responsible parties, said police, who

CLAVERACK -- A town of Claverack woman is charged with committing two separate home breakins at the same location within a five-day span, Columbia County Sheriff David P. Bartlett said. On Saturday, Sept. 28, deputies were called by a resident on Tishauser Road in Claverack reporting that someone had burglarized his home. Deputies and investigators that responded determined a "large amount of money" and a firearm were stolen. On Oct. 3 at about 1:23 p.m., deputies responded to another residence on Tishauser Road for a report of a woman trying to enter a parked, unoccupied vehicle in the driveway. Deputies found that the same residence from their Saturday call was burglarized again. The suspect ran off and deputies, police dogs and State Police tried to find her without success. A possible suspect was developed, and on Friday morning, deputies encountered her on Tishauser Road. Bartlett said she admitted her involvement in both burglaries to them. Selena McFadden, 22, of Tishauser Road, was charged with burglary, grand larceny, criminal mischief and petit larceny, arraigned and jailed in lieu of $1,000 bail. She is scheduled to be back in court at a later date.

Troy fire starts in camper trailer TROY -- Firefighters extinguished a two-alarm fire Friday afternoon that sent smoke billowing over a South Troy industrial area and the nearby

residential neighborhood around Monroe and First streets. The fire started in a camper trailer stored in a factory building on the north side of Monroe Street between the railroad tracks to the east and the Hudson River to the west, Fire Chief Eric McMahon said. Firefighters had the fire, reported at 3 p.m., under control within 30 minutes, McMahon said. A second alarm sounded because of the amount of smoke pouring out of the building and the size of the complex, McMahon said. The building is on the south side of the R.J. Valente Companies complex between Madison Street on the north, south to Monroe Street. The older factory building was being used for storage. It appeared attached to a more modern building on its west side. The camper trailer and some plastic appeared to have burned in the fire. The cause is under investigation. Troy firefighters were assisted by the Watervliet Arsenal and the Watervliet city fire departments.

Two airlifted after Providence crash PROVIDENCE -- Two people suffered serious injuries Thursday morning from a head-on car crash in western Saratoga County, the sheriff’s office said Friday.

The victims, who were driving the two cars, were flown by helicopter to Albany Medical Center Hospital, where they are still being treated. The sheriff’s office identified the two drivers as 27-year-old Michael B. Kennedy of Providence,

who was driving a 2012 GMC Sierra truck, and 43-year-old Christopher E. Edwards of Edinburg, who was driving a 2018 Dodge Journey sports utility vehicle.

Vandalism leads to trail closing HUNTER -- The state Department of Environmental Conservation on Friday temporarily closed a section of the Devil’s Path trail in the Catskills, after an episode of vandalism on the trail. The stretch of that wellknown trail is closed from the intersection of the Pecoy Notch trail to the Twin Mountain summit, in the Indian Head Wilderness Area. It was closed after recent vandalism of the steel rungs that were installed there in August. The vandalism has created a safety hazard for visitors utilizing this section of trail, according to DEC. Although the Devil’s Path trail will be closed on the western approach to Twin Mountain, hikers can still access the summit from the east utilizing the Jimmy Dolan Notch Trail from Prediger Road or via the Devil’s Path from Indian Head Mountain.

Guilty plea in cab driver shooting ALBANY -- An Albany man pleaded guilty to first-degree assault Thursday for shooting a taxicab driver earlier this year, Albany County prosecutors said. Thomas W. Allen, 25, was a passenger in the

taxi Jan. 19 near I-90 and Northern Boulevard in Albany when he shot the driver just before midnight. The driver was treated and survived, according to the District Attorney’s office. Allen faces 10 years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision when sentenced on Dec. 5.

Johnstown man gets 5 years in drug case ALBANY -- A Fulton County man who planned to sell about 1,740 bags of fentanyl-laced heroin was sentenced to five years in federal prison Friday. Victor M. Diaz, 30, of Johnstown pleaded guilty in June in U.S. District Court to one count of possession with intent to sell heroin and fentanyl before Senior Judge Norman A. Mordue. On March 7, Diaz was arrested after investigators discovered the potentially deadly drugs in a suitcase in his home. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Amsterdam police, State Police and Gloversville police were involved. In a pre-sentencing letter to the judge, Diaz defense attorney Danielle Neroni said her client -- the father of two children ages 6 and 9 -- “understands the magnitude of the mistake that he has made and upon release from incarceration, he will again live a law-abiding life that consists of working long hours and caring for his children.” -- Staff reports
