Farmers energized by manure idea National Grid sees cows as way to make electricity and gas ByLINE: LARRY RULISON

NORTHUMBERLAND - Brothers Bill and Neil Peck operate the Welcome Stock Farm in this rural community on the east side of Saratoga County. Six generations of the Peck family have been farming the land here, dating back to 1836. And while dairy farming may seem like

a simple business to the average person, it’s anything but that -- especially since falling milk prices, rising labor costs and stringent regulation make earning a profit extremely difficult. “We have to make a product that is competitive on the international market,” Bill Peck said from his office at the farm on Thursday morning. As sophisticated as dairy farming Please see MANURE 15


Dairy cows are fed at the Welcome Stock Farm in Schuylerville. Six generations of the Peck family have been farming here since 1836.

Lake George mansion has new owners Two New Jersey families paying $5 million to buy 13,000-square foot home ByLINE: LEIGH HORNBECK

LAKE GEORGE - A 13,000-square-foot mansion built for industrialist Royal C. Peabody in 1895 on the south shore of Lake George has sold for $5 million. The buyers, whose names have not been revealed, are two families from New Jersey. The seller was Kate Serlin, widow of the late obstetrician Stephen Serlin. The Serlins owned the 6.3-acre property for nearly 30 years. The house is 21/2 stories and has a massive footprint of rough-cut granite. The upper stories are half-timbered, a style often found in a Tudor revival style, and inlaid with yellow stucco. It has eight bedrooms, seven fireplaces, eight full bathrooms, two covered boat

The Peabodys called it Wikiosco, “home on beautiful waters” in Algonquin. Kate Serlin’s real estate agent, Christine Marchesiello of Keller Williams Realty Capital District, said she showed the property many times. “At the end of the day it was not about getting the most money,” Marchesiello said. “She wanted to close this chapter of her life and move on. She is at peace.” Dan Davies, the owner of Davies-Davies & Associates Real Estate, was the buyers’ agent. A native of Lake George, Davies was familiar with the mansion. “It’s probably one of the top two most iconic properties I’ve sold in my 30 years of selling real estate,” Davies said. “My buyers are ecstatic and it was the right time for Kate.

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.

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 that can fall on your home and your neighbors’ homes, may prevent future damage and legal issues. Tree services can ensure trees maintain their awe-inspiring beauty and help homeowners protect their homes and their belongings.

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.

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 ren-





Residential Commercial Industrial

ovations 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.

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.


Brothers Neil, left, and Bill Peck talk with Laurie Poltynski, director of customer community management at National Grid, at their dairy farm on Thursday in Schuylerville. National Grid has suggested investing in equipment that could help ease the cost for the Pecks if they agree to turn their cows’ manure into natural gas.


has become in the global economy, it’s surprising to learn that the Pecks are also considering entering into a new venture that involves their farm: natural gas production. The Pecks won’t be fracking or digging for natural gas on their farm. In fact, they can find a natural gas source right under their feet: in the manure that the 1,000 cows they own produce every day. Every one of the farm’s dairy cows eats 115 pounds of feed and 30 gallons of water a day and in turn produces roughly 10 gallons of milk daily. So where does the rest of that food and water go? Each cow also produces about 15 gallons of manure per day, all of which is collected into the farm’s manure lagoon before it is spread out on the farm’s fields by truck. The cost of spreading the manure out on the fields and ensuring that the farm complies with its environmental permits is costly -- about $350,000 a year. So when National Grid officials came to the Peck brothers and suggested they could make extra money turning their manure into natural gas, they listened. The process isn’t cheap or easy, and requires construction of an on-site “digester” that helps turn the manure into methane, which can be used to make electricity. If it is cleaned further, it can be sold as natural gas to utilities like National Grid. “You’re making another product that has value,” Bill Peck said. The Peck brothers haven’t decided yet if they will get into the biogas business. But National Grid recently completed a $4 million, compressed natural gas station in the town of Moreau where the utility can

“inject” natural gas into its gas transmission network during periods of peak demand. The Moreau CNG station is part of a larger, $70 million gas pipeline project that has been proposed by the utility. Called the “Albany Loop,” the project is designed to add reliability and redundancy to the utility’s natural gas network. David Zielinski, National Grid’s director of gas instrumentation and regulation for New York state, said the Moreau station was built in part in Saratoga County with the thought that one day it could be used as a convenient place for methane gas produced by local farmers to be injected into National Grid’s transmission network, a move that would help reduce the utility’s reliance on fossil fuels. “It’s easily conceivable that we could use it for renewable natural gas as well,” Zielinski said. Of course, the Pecks aren’t sure yet if they can afford all the equipment that would be needed to make natural gas from manure, including a “scrubber” that would clean the methane gas before it could be used in National Grid’s system. The entire cost would be in the range of millions of dollars. The Pecks say they have been approached by some energy investors who have suggested that their farm could team up with other local farms to share the equipment, but nothing is concrete. National Grid has suggested that it could perhaps buy a scrubber and locate it at the Moreau CGN station. “We’re contemplating should we be investing in the scrubbers,” said Laurie Poltynski, National Grid’s eastern New York regional executive, “so we can take that burden off the farmers.” lrulison@timesunion­.com - 518-4545504 - @larryrulison

National Poppy Day CAPITAL DISTRICT - National Poppy Day is Friday, May 24, 2019. In 2017, The American Legion brought National Poppy Day to the United States by asking Congress to designate the Friday before Memorial Day, as National Poppy Day®. The American Legion Auxiliary asks that everyone wear a red poppy to honor the fallen and support the living who have worn our nation’s uniform. 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. In 1918, Moina (mo-eena) Michael, who became known as the “Poppy Lady”, wrote on the back of an envelope: And now the Torch and Poppy Red We wear in honor of our dead. Fear not that ye have died for naught; We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought In Flanders Fields. The American Legion Auxiliary distributes handmade poppies annually for a donation, to assist our programs for veteran outreach programs. Students may participate in learning about the memorial poppy and what it stands for through our Poppy Poster Contests and our Miss Poppy Contests.

Forestry for more than 30 years. This program is free and open to the public.

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