Colonie residents offer their thoughts for the future Town leaders hoping to accommodate ideas into development plan By: MALLORY MOENCH

COLONIE - More bike trails, affordable housing for seniors and finding middle ground between developers and homeowners are on the minds of Colonie residents as they look toward the future. Several comments came out of Thursday’s meeting on an update of the comprehensive plan, a work in progress toward a final Town

Board vote. During the Town Board meeting, residents could pick up copies of the revised plan “hot off the press,” as Supervisor Paula Mahan said. Joe LaCivita, town economic planning and development director, gave an update about changes that took in comments from the public hearing two weeks ago and letters from the Shaker Heritage Society, among other groups. The main change was comparing goals from the last comprehensive plan in 2005 with 2019 aims. The plan sets goals covering transportation, open space, resource management,

infrastructure, environmental sustainability, housing and community services for the next 10 years. A significant new goal added after residents said they wanted more input in the development process was to improve communication between the Planning Board and residents. Many residents said they appreciated the changes after public input. More than one affirmed that Colonie was an ideal place to live --- echoing the results of a recent Times Union poll Mahan quoted that named the town the Please see PLANNING 14

Joys of gardening need not take green from wallet By: SHANNON FROM A SHOPPORTUNIST

Lawn and garden sales are sprouting up faster than daffodils as local nurseries and major retailers work to lure homeowners eager to fill flower pots, harvest vegetables and polish landscapes. If you’re a garden novice -- or, like me, grappling with a perpetual black thumb -- there may be a temptation to dig deep and splurge on tools, seeds and supplies. It’s easy to overspend, but there are experts here in the Capital Region poised to help you save as you spruce up. Gardening educators at Capital Roots in Troy actually encourage community gardeners

to pass on pricey provisions and take advantage of low- and no-cost local resources. “Our educational programs focus on soil building, and we recommend using leaves as a soil amendment each fall; they break down quickly and improve drainage and soil texture and cost nothing but a bit of time raking,” says Sharon DiLorenzo, program manager for Capital Roots. Most of the Capital Roots gardens have a compost system in place to not only reduce waste but boost soil health. You won’t have to go farther than your own trash bin to concoct compost. “Another great tip for a low cost garden maintenance and soil boosting tip is the use of newspaper and straw to mulch your vegetable

garden,” says DiLorenzo. “Using newspaper or brown paper bags as a weed barrier around vegetable plants helps suppress weeds while retaining soil moisture.” It’s important to cover the paper with organic material like straw, adds DiLorenzo. It will not only keep the paper in place but add some organic matter to your plot. “You can also use cardboard in the same way around landscape plants; just cut the cardboard to fit around the plants leaving plenty of space around the base of the trees or shrubs,” she says. “Cover the cardboard with a good layer of shredded bark mulch. It will last all season long, keeping weeds from emerging and making your landscape beds look neat and tidy.” Please see GARDEN 7

“American Pickers” to Film in New York! CAPITAL DISTRICT Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to New York! They plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout the region in May 2019! AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

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.

best suburb in the Capital Region. Concerns still persisted, though. Residents discussed rezoning debates, speeding and traffic. One man said he couldn’t find affordable senior housing near Colonie Center where he and his wife, who doesn’t drive, live. They’d have to move to Rensselaer County to afford housing if nothing changed. Another 46-year resident said his neighborhood was rezoned to commercial in the 2005 plan -- pitting 20 business owners pushing for development against 200 protesting residents -- and said he hoped that situation could be avoided with a new plan. A representative from the Albany Bike Coalition was met with applause from the audience after urging the town to consider creating a bike and pedestrian advisory committee. Members of advocacy group SAVE Colonie raised concerns that residents were handed a new version at the meeting with no time to prepare public comments and wanted more communication about the process before the plan is finalized. “It seems insincere that you’re asking for public comment and not giving time to allow people to review it,” Suzanne Maloney said. “You would have better feedback and less angst.” “You’ve done so much work on this, and don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled, but in order to have people be engaged and be informed, you have to allow enough time,” she added. “Everyone appreciates the time you’re allowing for further input.” flowers known as spring ephemerals bloom on the forest floor before the trees leaf out and block the sun. The season is short and the blooms of some delicate flowers can disappear in days. We’ll look for early bloomers like hepatica, coltsfoot, trout lily, spring beauties, and bloodroot. Meet at the Paint Mine picnic area. Call 518-872-0800 to register. Sunday, April 28, 11:00a.m.–1:00p.m.: Nest Box Monitoring Workshop at Thacher Nature Center - This training will teach you to identify the birds using the birdhouse or nest in your yard, and how to monitor the progress of the nestlings.

Board Member Jennifer Whalen agreed it was hard to deliver public comment on a plan that keeps changing and asked the town to post the revised document on its website Friday and push back the next public hearing. Town officials stressed the revised document wasn’t the final version and at least one more portion would be added before the next meeting in two weeks. More than one said they didn’t want to rush and welcomed keeping the public hearing open. “I’ve got all the time in the world,” Mahan said. “I just want a good product in the end that someone could pick up five or 10 years from now.” “There’s no limit. We want the comments. We love the comments,” added Town Board member David Green. The hearing ended with Gloria Knorr, an active citizen whose family has farmed for generations on Colonie land and who commented on the 2005 comprehensive plan. She supported the goal to diversify housing, as she said she’s been asking what incentives the town could give developers to build affordable housing, especially for seniors and veterans, for years. Knorr praised the Town Board and in particular Mahan. “How you respond to my public comments connects me to a sense of community that I am part of,” she said. “I thank all of you for working on my behalf and all the (residents) in our town.” Knorr encouraged more public hearings. “The longer the better,” she said, “then we will have input.” The Town Board adjourned the public hearing until 7 p.m. April 18 in Town Hall. mallory.moench@time­sunion.com 518-454-5092 - @mallorymoench

USS SLATER Open for the Season CAPITAL DISTRICT - This year will mark the ship’s 22nd season in Albany, New York. There have been tremendous changes to the ship since she first arrived. USS SLATER has been transformed into one of the best restored, most historically accurate World War II ships in the world. A National Historic Landmark, USS SLATER is the only remaining World War II Destroyer Escort afloat in America.

USS SLATER is owned and operated by Destroyer Escort Historical Museum, a private, non-profit organization. The Museum receives no regular Federal, State, or local government financial support. Now is a great time to become a member of the Museum. Members get free admission all season, as well as other benefits. Individual and family memberships are available, starting at just $25. USS SLATER is located on the Hudson River in Downtown Albany, New York. Public hours will be Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through November. The ship will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 21st. Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for children. Call 518-431-1943. For more information or visit the website at www.ussslater. org

Watervliet Senior Center Bingo WATERVLIET - The Watervliet Senior Center offers bingo on Thursdays at 12:45 and also after some of our monthly dinners; the third Wednesday of every month. If you or someone you know loves

bingo, we at the senior center are here to help beginners and pros. It can be an excellent way to promote mental, emotional, and physical health. Call 518-273-4422 for more information. B-I-N-G-O! Bingo is more than a game. Many people laugh at the image of older people playing bingo, but it has benefits that folks are not aware of. Reflexes and coordination decline naturally as seniors age, but bingo requires players identify numbers as they are called and mark their cards accordingly at a quick clip. Studies show that bingo can significantly improve the hand-eye coordination of many seniors. As the game requires a great deal of mental flexibility and alertness to grasp, identify, and remember specific information, bingo may also help improve your loved one’s cognitive acuity and short-term memory. Bingo events typically involve a lot of laughter

and excitement. As laughter triggers a number of physical changes in the body that can boost the immune system, relieve stress, and even diminish pain, bingo can actually promote your loved one’s general health. Players make friends and become more social, as well.
