Watervliet voters approve bond School officials will use $9.99 million to make district improvements ByLINE: KENNETH C. CROWE II
WATERVLIET - Voters approved a $9.99 million bond issue Tuesday that school officials will use to make improvements to the Watervliet City School District’s schools. The bond act was approved by a vote of 138 to 60, the school district reported. “I thank the voters who came out to support our schools, students, teachers and staff,” said Superintendent Lori Caplan. The district’s architects will prepare plans for the health, safety and infrastructure improvements at the Watervliet Junior-Senior High School and at Watervliet Elementary School. The completed plans will be submitted to the State Education Department for approval and work is expected begin in the fall of 2021.
The district estimates that 95 percent of the $9.99 million will be covered by state aid. The remaining 5 percent will result in a 1.06 percent increase in the district tax levy. That would translate to an annual increase of $16.67 per $100,000 of assessed property value in Watervliet and $24.79 per $100,000 in the district’s Mannsville section. The project will be split into three sections, with $8,538,938 for health and safety improvements, $1,442,508 for building infrastructure and $15,378 for site infrastructure. The health and safety money would see $4,439,593 spent at the elementary school and $4,099,345 at the junior-senior high school. The building infrastructure would have $445,083 spent at the elementary school and $997,425 at the junior-senior high. The $15,378 in site spending would be at both schools.

Don’t Forget To Claim Your EITC You Earned It, Now Get It! CAPITAL DISTRICT The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can be a financial boost to many hardworking taxpayers, their families, and their communities. Nationwide during 2019, 25 million eligible workers and families received about $61 billion in EITC. The average amount of the credit was about $2,504. IRS data shows that 17.6% of EITC-eligible New York households do not claim the credit. To claim the EITC if you qualify, include it in your federal income tax return. It’s refundable. This means you can benefit even if you owe no tax or don’t have to file a return. EITC depends on several factors. First, the amount you earned from working for someone or for yourself. Then, whether you are married or single, and the number of qualifying children you have, if any. Anyone with earnings of $55,952 or less should see if they qualify for EITC at www.irs.gov/eitc or visit a local VITA site (volunteer income tax assistance). If you qualify for the EITC you may also be eligible for additional tax credits such as the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) that could lead to larger refund. New York also offers a credit if a qualifying
taxpayer qualified claimed the federal EITC. The credit is equal to 30% of the taxpayer’s allowable federal EITC, reduced by the amount of any household credit. If the IRS ejects or audits your EITC claim, or you have any tax issues with the IRS, free help may be available. Contact the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) of Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York at (518) 4626765 or (800) 462-2922. This clinic does not generally provide tax return preparation services.

Hike for Hemlocks at Thacher Visitor Center VOORHEESVILLE Saturday, February 22, 10:30a.m. – 1:00p.m. New York’s eastern hemlocks provide food and shelter for wildlife, help cool streams, and provide erosion control.

We need your help tracking eastern hemlocks and HWA across NYS. Learn how to identify eastern hemlocks and how to look for signs of HWA infestation, and learn how to report HWA into iMapInvasives, NY’s
invasive species database. After a lunch break, we’ll go outside and inspect nearby hemlocks. Bring a lunch and dress warmly. Note: Please download the iMapInvasives app prior to the workshop. The app is available for download from Google Play or iOS App Store (search for “imapinvasives”) for free. Call 518-872-0800 for more information.

COPS, COURT AND FIRE CALLS Found unconscious, Troy boy in hospital TROY -- Police and child protective services workers have opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a 6-year-old child found unconscious in a bathtub at about noon Sunday. The boy was found by his mother, police said, and taken to Albany Medical Center. Deputy Police Chief Daniel DeWolf said the child was in critical condition Monday. There are no obvious signs of foul play but DeWolf said the incident merited further investigation. The child was found at a home on Fifth Avenue in Lansingburgh. It was unclear when the child was discovered. -- Staff report
Officials: Scammers using police caller ID SARATOGA SPRINGS -- City police are asking the community to beware of scammers posing as Saratoga Springs police. Police Lt. Robert Jillson said a scammer is calling people, identifying himself as a member of the department and telling the unsuspecting person that he or she has an outstanding arrest warrant. The scammer then tells the potential victim that they can make the warrant go away if he or she sends money. Complicating matters, Jillson said, is that the scammer has rigged its caller ID to match that of the Saratoga Springs Police Department. "It's makes our job harder," Jillson said. Jillson also said he believes this is the first time a scammer has used the department's phone number. "We ask that when you

may be in doubt with a call from SSPD, just ask to call the officer back at the police station," an official warning from police states. "In cases where you receive a voicemail, the callback number for the officer should be our police department main number. If you are unsure of our number, search us on the internet and confirm our number." Jillson said scammers often threaten to turn off power or suspend social security. Scammers also look to have victims pay them in gift cards. "Gift cards are not a method used by SSPD to take bail on a warrant or pay outstanding tickets and fines," the public warning states. "But it is a common way for scammers to make you a victim." Jillson recommends that anyone who receives such a call should contact the police. The police also recommend that those searching for legitimate information on scams should look for websites that end in .org or .gov. -- Wendy Liberatore
Man admits to heroin charge A 31-year-old Amsterdam man admitted to planning to sell more than 100 grams of heroin mixed with fentanyl in federal court on Monday. The U.S. Attorney's office said Edwin Rodriguez was pulled over on May 15, 2019. Court documents indicate that Rodriguez admitted to being on his way to a customer and driving with a suspended license. As Amsterdam officers arrested him, a vacuum-sealed bag of powder fell out of his pant leg, which contained the heroin. When officers searched his home later that day, they found an empty bleach bottle with a hidden compartment containing more heroin. He faces at least five years in prison and at
least four years of supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled for June 15, 2020. -- Steve Hughes
Police: Moreau man attacked woman QUEENSBURY -- A Saratoga County man is accused of pulling an ex-girlfriend to the floor, then choking and punching her, Warren County sheriff’s deputies said. Tanner Cormie, 34, of Moreau had gone to the John Street home on Thursday to confront the victim, engaging in an argument that escalated into a physical altercation and injuries to the woman, deputies said. Deputies, assisted by state troopers, found Cormie at his home, where he was taken into custody. Cormie was charged with first-degree burglary, assault, criminal obstruction of breathing and unlawful imprisonment.
Drug conspiracy member gets prison ALBANY -- A Hudson man was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison for his involvement in a crack cocaine distribution ring that operated in Columbia County, federal authorities said. Julan Morrison, 38, admitted he was involved in the conspiracy, where members made weekly trips to New York City to buy hundreds of grams of powder cocaine, bring it to Hudson, convert it to crack cocaine, and sell it. Morrison said the organization sold at least 464 grams of crack cocaine between August and December 2017, according to the U.S. Attorney State Police, FBI and Hudson police.
