GREENFIELD CENTER - The Lake Desolation Fire Department, which in recent years had been reduced to nothing more than a social club, is officially dissolving. Greenfield Fire District Chief Jay Ellsworth said the station in a remote corner of Saratoga County, originally established to extinguish fires for summer residents along the lake, has been inoperable for years.
“They never had their own fire district,” Ellsworth said. “They never had any gear, any air packs -- they didn’t have much of anything” beyond a pickup truck. Ellsworth said the volunteer department had folded for “lack of participation.” He said there was never a gap in coverage to the lake because his Middle Grove Fire Company, one of four all-volunteer stations that he oversees, has been responsible for covering the lake area for years. According to a Saratogian article published in 2008, the Lake Desolation Fire Company was formed in 1946 after a camp burned down because the fire company could not get to the
APRIL 11, 2019
scene in a timely manner. “Our purpose is to keep a truck on top of the hill,” said Mark Gauthier, Lake Desolation fire department president, told the newspaper then. “It takes about 20 minutes for the Middle Grove fire department to come up.” He also said that the unofficial station crew, which Gauthier said had a chainsaw, was to save lives and let Middle Grove Department save the building. Ellsworth, who said his all-volunteer stations field 1,500 calls a year, said the fire house is selling its property and liquidating its assets. “It’s in the hands of the lawyers,” Ellsworth said. “Where the money is goes, I’m not quite sure.” Supreme Court papers filed in Saratoga County in January show that attorney David Pentkowski is handling the matter. When the Times Union reached out to his firm, Pentkowski, Pastore and Freestone, the person who answered the phone said Pentkowski would not comment.
Tick season nears: Here’s what to expect Crawler is about the size of a poppy seed, carries plenty of peril ByLINE: BETHANY BUMP
CAPITAL DISTRICT - Warming weather, melting snow, the ability to walk outside without chattering your teeth -- all are welcome signs of spring. But unfortunately here in the Northeast, they’re also signs that tick season is nearly upon us. As snow cover disappears and temperatures warm, adult ticks that survived the winter will emerge from their cold-weather homes beneath the leaf litter and start looking for blood. Tick experts can’t say for sure whether this year will

be worse than last when it comes to the number of disease-carrying ticks crawling around, but most agree it doesn’t really matter. “There will be infected ticks either way,” said Bryon Backenson, deputy director for the state Department of Health’s Bureau of Communicable Disease Control. “We’re never going to have a year with no ticks, so no matter what people should take precautions because it only takes one tick bite to transmit disease.” There is some reason to believe the population of infected ticks might be about the same or slightly below what it was last year.

Broke polo club to be sold Owners say buyer vows season's events go on ByLINE: WENDY LIBERATORE

said the club is finalizing details of the sale and expects to resolve its issues with Pioneer Saving Bank, which initiated foreclosure proceedings on the club after it defaulted on a $3.2 million loan. "In the meantime," Rossi, who is the managing partner, wrote in a text message, "plans for the upcoming polo season and events continue and we expect no interruption of operations." Rossi said that the new owner "is committed to carrying on with polo activities and plans to implement some improvements to the facility in order to grow our fairly robust wedding and event schedule in 2019 and beyond." Rossi did not elaborate on how the Pioneer Savings Bank's foreclosure proceedings, which were filed in Saratoga County on March 22, will affect the deal with investors. He said, however, he and Bucci will remain involved in the club's activities including the 2019 season of medium-goal polo. In recent decades, the 121-year-old polo club has undergone improvements including upgrades to its Whitney Field. It also erected a field-side clubhouse to serve its membership. The majority of polo spectators, however, sit on the opposite side of the field where tailgating is ubiquitous. Tickets are available for the upcoming season which will run from July 5 to Sept. 2 with matches set for 5:30 p.m. Fridays and Sundays.
Fresh Air Fund Seeks Volunteers CAPITAL DISTRICT The Fresh Air Fund looks forward to celebrating National Volunteer Week, which is from April 7th to April 13th this year. It is
an opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our inspiring volunteers, hosts and supporters in the Albany Area. The Fresh Air Fund’s programs would not be possible without the commitment of our dedicated
volunteers, many of whom are also host families, who serve on committees, interview prospective host families, publicize the program and plan summer activities. Additionally, individuals and local businesses give generously of their time and resources to make The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program a great success throughout the Albany Area each summer. As we hear from alumni and connect with long standing host families, we continue to learn how Fresh Air Fund summers have impacted lives – and continue to transform lives many years later. We have learned that a summer can last a lifetime. The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-forprofit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. First time Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from seven to 12 years old, who live in
New York City. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips. For more information on how you can get involved, please contact Tenniel Hansen, at tenniel. email@example.com or visit www.freshair.org.

ty, forecasts tick populations by surveilling the abundance of white-footed mice out and about each previous summer. “Mice, as cute as they are, are filthy little creatures whose blood streams are full of pathogens,” he said. “And they’re particularly excellent tick hosts.” With a moderate to low abundance of white-footed mice observed last summer, Ostfeld is predicting the region and others like it across the Northeast can expect a moderate to low number of infected ticks this year compared to last. But he, too, says that’s no reason to become lax about tick-bite prevention. While tick season extends from April through Thanksgiving, the period of heightened risk is considered May through July, when blacklegged ticks in the nymph stage venture out for blood meals, said Backenson. “That’s because they’re either infected or have a good chance of becoming infected, but most importantly it’s because they’re so damn small,” he said. The size of a poppy seed, in fact. The smaller the tick, the harder it is to detect. And the longer a tick goes undetected on your skin, the more chance it has to transmit whatever disease it’s carrying. Tickborne diseases are increasingly a cause for concern among public health officials, as they appear to be spreading in both number and geographic reach. In 2017, for example, state and local health departments reported a record 59,349 cases of tickborne disease to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up from 48,610 cases a year earlier. From 2004 to 2016, the number of reported cases nationwide doubled, and seven new tickborne pathogens were discovered.

LEAF & BRUSH PICK-UP SCHEDULE
EFFECTIVE APRIL 8TH THROUGH MAY 28TH, the Dept. of Public Works will pick up leaves and brush at curbside. Leaves need to be in a separate pile and NOT BAGGED. Brush no larger than 1” in diameter and no longer than 4 feet, needs to be placed in another separate pile. Any leaves or brush placed at curbside before or after the above dates will be the responsibility of the residents to remove at his/her expense. Village Code 426-8 prohibits encumbering Village public property at any time except for specified publicized pick-up periods. No garbage, junk, electronics, etc. should be place at the curb. Only leaves and brush will be collected. By Order of the Board of Trustees Arthur Lozier III - DPW Superintendent
Additionally, tick species appear to be making their way into new-to-them areas of the U.S., expanding their reach to the west, north and south. Researchers believe this is the result of warming temperatures, reforestation, development into previously wooded areas and, perhaps, simply people spending more time outside. In New York, ticks were mostly a Long Island and Westchester County problem until about 15 to 20 years ago, Ostfeld said, when they started making their way up the Hudson Valley. Now, he said they can be found in the Capital Region, North Country, Finger Lakes and Southern Tier. “It’s shockingly fast, to my mind, how much real estate has been gobbled up by this expanding tick population,” he said. “And they show no sign of slowing down.” Lyme remains the most common tickborne disease in New York with 9,803 cases reported in 2017, followed by anaplasmosis with 1,196 cases and babesiosis with 697 cases. Finalized data for 2018 are not yet available, Backenson said, though preliminary reports show a slight decline. Anaplasmosis appears to be particularly prolific in the Capital Region, he said, with the counties bordering Massachusetts and Vermont reporting cases in the triple digits compared to single or double-digit cases seen elsewhere. People with anaplasmosis will often experience fever, headache, chills and muscle aches. “A number of physicians in the Capital District have done a good job of trying to work with colleagues and explain, you know, this is what you should be on the lookout for,” he said. “Because it’s just not as common or as familiar as Lyme.” The CDC will also continue to investigate the spread and disease threat posed by the Asian longhorned tick, which was first discovered on U.S. soil in New Jersey in 2017. It has since spread to eight other states including
New York, and may pose a serious threat to livestock. Backenson said that in New York, it has only been observed downstate and hasn’t ventured farther north than the southern tip of Dutchess County. The Department of Health has collected several specimens and sent them to the CDC, which is developing a carefully controlled colony for study. email@example.com - 518-454-5387 @bethanybump

They also live in lawns and gardens, especially at the edges of woods and around old stone walls. Ways to protect yourself: n n n n n n n n n
Wear light-colored clothing with a tight weave to spot ticks easily. Wear enclosed shoes, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Tuck pant legs into socks or boots and shirt into pants. Check clothes and any exposed skin frequently for ticks while outdoors. Consider using insect repellent. Stay on cleared, well-traveled trails. Walk in the center of trails. Avoid dense woods and bushy areas. Avoid sitting directly on the ground or on stone walls. Keep long hair tied back, especially when gardening. Bathe or shower as soon as possible after going indoors (preferably within two hours) to wash off and more easily find ticks that may be on you. Do a final, full-body tick check at the end of the day (also check children and pets), and remove ticks promptly.

Your home 6 options for funding your next home improvement project Before starting a home improvement project, either on one’s own or with the assistance of a professional contractor, homeowners must first consider the costs involved. According to the home improvement resource HomeAdvisor, more than one-third of homeowners do not understand what hiring a professional will cost, and then cannot successfully budget and secure financing once they have set their sights on a renovation project. HomeAdvisor says that some of the more popular projects, such as remodeling a kitchen or bathroom or building a deck, can cost, on average, $19,920, $9,274 and $6,919, respectively. Homeowners may find that the more expensive renovations require them to secure some type of financing. Those who have never before sought such financing may want to consider these options.

1. Cash-out refinancing: With cash-out refinancing, a person will begin the mortgage process anew with the intention of paying off the current mortgage balance, and then taking out additional funds for other purposes. Cash-out refinancing is a way to tap into a home’s existing equity for use on improvements or other expenses, such as college tuition. 2. Home equity line of credit: The financial experts at Bankrate indicate that a HELOC works like a credit card, with the house as collateral. There is a credit limit, and borrowers can spend up to that limit. The interest rate may or may not be fixed. However, the interest may be tax-deductible if the financing is used to improve, buy or build a home. 3. Home equity loan: Individuals also can borrow against equity in their homes with a fixed interest rate through a home equity loan. Most lenders will calculate 80 percent of the home value and subtract a homeowner’s mortgage balance to figure out how much can be borrowed, according to the financial advisory site The Simple Dollar. 4. Personal loan: Homeowners can shop around at various financial institutions for competitive personal loans to be used for home improvement purposes. Funds may be approved within one business day, which can be ideal for those who want to begin their improvements soon. 5. Personal line of credit: A personal line of credit allows borrowers to borrow only the money needed at the time, and offers a variable interest rate that is generally lower than fixed loan rates. Again, like a credit card, PLOC gives a person a maximum borrowing amount and is ideal for ongoing purchases. 6. Credit cards: In a pinch, credit cards can be used to finance improvements, but they do come with the cost of very high interest rates if the balance is not paid in full by the time the bill comes due. However, for funding smaller projects and maximizing rewards points through home improvement retailers or specific credit card company promotions, credit cards can be a way to earn various perks in addition to the benefit of improving a home. Homeowners looking to finance their next improvements should speak to a financial advisor and shop around for the best types of funding for them.

Reasons to hire an interior designer How many times have you sat on the sofa pouring over a home magazine wishing your rooms could be ripped from its pages? Some people are gifted with a natural talent to impart a space with perfectly balanced colors and schemes that fit with one’s lifestyle and design preferences. Others are not as equipped. But that doesn’t mean design has to suffer. An interior designer with knowledge and resources who’s in your corner can make all the difference. Many people are hesitant to bring in professional designers because of cost. But contrary to popular belief, working with an interior decorator is not something reserved for the rich and famous. Designers actually can save homeowners money in the long run. A good designer will choose the right amount of high-quality elements that will be durable and timeless. This means less money will ultimately be spent on replacing cheap materials or redesigning rooms that have gone out of style. According to the design experts at Homepolish, utilizing a designer to transform a space can create rooms that are more in tune and balanced with homeowners’ needs — helping to improve mood and functionality. That can extend to other areas of a person’s life and well-being. Putting the task of designing a home’s interior in someone else’s hands frees up time to focus on other projects as well. Designers can look at a space with a careful eye and not be influenced by items that have sentimental attachment. He or she can help decide if anything should be repurposed or removed. Plus, an interior designer can help homeowners stay on budget. Designers also can serve as liaisons for clients who have difficulty communicating with builders and architects. Designers are trained to think about things that homeowners tend to overlook, such as placement of lighting, outlets and room flow. He or she also likely has contacts within the industry that can be utilized, saving even more time and money. A good designer can be worth the investment. The end results will be an interior that homeowners will be proud to call home. Mechanicville

Your home How tree services can protect your property Cold weather can take its toll on a property, especially in regions of the world where winters are harsh. Most parts of the landscape are vulnerable to damage from winter storms, but trees may be especially susceptible. By the end of winter, many homeowners wonder if their trees would benefit from some professional TLC. Tree services provide a host of services. While fall is a popular time to remove trees from a property, doing so in spring is not unheard of, especially if trees were affected
by winter storms and now pose a threat to a home and the people who live inside it. Homeowners considering tree services can explore the following ways that some professional arbor attention can protect them and their homes. • Tree services can help protect a home’s foundation. Old trees that stretch well into the sky can be captivating, but they also can pose a threat to a home’s foundation. Such trees may have especially large root zones that may extend beneath walkways and even a home. In the latter instance, foundations may crack as roots try to stake their claim to the ground
Refresh • Maintain • Remodel
beneath a home. According to the home improvement resource HomeAdvisor, homeowners pay an average of just over $4,000 to repair foundation issues, though major problems can cost considerably more than that. A professional tree service can remove aging trees that might be beautiful and awe-inspiring but still pose a threat to a home and the areas surrounding it. • Tree services can improve visibility. Trees that have aged a bit since their last trimming might affect the view of a property from inside a home. Overgrown branches can compromise residents’ ability to see and experience the natural beauty just outside their windows. The average homeowner may be able to trim short trees on his or her own, but if views from the second floor of a home or higher have been compromised, it’s much safer to call a professional tree service. Such services have the right tools and experienced personnel necessary to safely trim high branches on tall trees. • Tree services can help prevent future damage. Even if trees made it through a recent winter unscathed, that’s no guarantee next winter or even the coming seasons of spring, summer and fall won’t ultimately prove their undoing. Travelers Insurance notes that weather-related roof damage, including damage resulting from falling limbs and branches weighed down by snow during the winter months, accounted for more than half of all Travelers property loss claims between 2009 and 2016. According to BNC Insurance and Risk Advisors, homeowners may be liable if a tree they knew posed a threat falls onto a passerby or a neighbor’s property and causes damage or injury. Having all trees properly trimmed each year, but especially those SERVICES

James Williams 1882 patented mole killing device.
Mole Max repellent.
Moles are fascinating creatures but it really is hard to love them. They seem to have caused more damage than usual this spring. Now that our lawns have thawed out they are building new tunnels in their never-ending search for grubs and earthworms to eat. Ever since there have been lawns, men have tried to figure out how to rid them of moles. An illustration from a patent application filed in 1882 by James Williams for a mole killing device using a handgun. In his application Williams wrote “This invention may also be used in connection with a door or window, so as to kill any person or thing opening the door or window to which it is attached.” I can just see DEC and ATF trying to figure out how to classify this device. Not only would it kill the mole or intruder but the gunshot would alert you that it had been triggered. I hope Mr. Williams kept his day job. A few years after the mole gun was invented a medieval-looking mole skewering device came along and is still sold today. There’s something about moles that really incites the killing instinct. As time marched on poison gas bombs were developed to rid our lawns of burrowing rodents. They are still around. They are exciting to use but rarely effective since the moles have an undiscovered escape hatch that they use to avoid the gas. There are poisons that can be placed in the mole’s tunnels that, if they happen to find and eat, will kill them. Of course moles prefer earthworms and grubs to poison so these are of limited effectiveness. I also worry about pets and wildlife that may be killed if they find the dead mole and eat it so I avoid poison in my lawn. Modern times have brought us the sonic Mole chaser that runs on batteries. The idea is that “penetrating sonic pulses radiate through the soil causing nearby rodents to run for cover”. They might work a bit in sandy soil but I’m skeptical of the “up to 9,000 sq ft of coverage”. Finally we have a truly effective mole repellent. MoleMax is a granular product that you put on your lawn and water in. The active ingredient is made from castor beans and mole and other rodents can’t stand it. It works fast too. Moles generally vacate the area within a few days. MoleMax can be used in lawns and flowerbeds. It can even be used in the planting holes of bulbs to keep chipmunks from digging them up. Remember moles are solitary creatures and young moles are kicked out of their mother’s burrow in late summer and they have to find someplace to set up their own territory before winter. If you apply MoleMax in early fall the young moles won’t set up house in your yard and you won’t have mole damage again next spring. Thanks for the read.
