Income divide runs deep Saratoga County has one of the widest chasms between its rich, the rest, study says ByLINE:  WENDY LIBERATORE

Saratoga Springs - Tracts of trailer parks, a tent colony for the homeless and impoverished children aren't images most people would associate with the state's fastest-growing county. But while Saratoga County might be better known for luxury estates and thoroughbred racing, it also has one of the widest income gaps between rich and poor residents of any county in the nation.

That's the finding of a study by the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., a nonprofit and nonpartisan think tank focused on economic policy and its impacts on low- and middle-income workers. Of 3,061 counties it LORI VAN BUREN / TIMES UNION ranked nationally, the think tank puts Phila Street in Saratoga Springs reflects the more wealthy side of Saratoga County at 28th in income Saratoga County.

Cairns happy with honor, but wanted team title Saratoga point guard happy for another shot ByLINE:  JAMES ALLEN

SARATOGA SPRINGS - Athlete of the Year: Dolly Cairns, Saratoga SpringsThe accolades continued to amass for Cairns as she completed her junior season with the Blue Streaks. It marked her fifth campaign on varsity and netted the standout point guard Suburban Council Player of the Year honors. While she is appreciative of the honor be-

stowed upon her by the league's coaches, something is still missing for Cairns as she has yet to experience the thrill of winning a Section II Class AA title. The Blue Streaks advanced to the sectional final in March and, despite a game-high 27 points from Cairns, dropped a 62-54 verdict against Shenendehowa. "I wanted to get it done this year, especially with it being Kerry's senior year," Cairns said regarding teammate Kerry Flaherty, a player she played with for five years on varsity. "I am already on the younger kids to get them in the gym with me."

“American Pickers” to Film in New York!

MOLES

Mole damage.

James Williams 1882 patented mole killing device.

Mole skewer.

Gas bombs.

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.

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!

court, Cairns is smooth and steady. Her unique abilities to create offense for herself and her teammates set her apart. Cairns utilizes a step-back move to create separation from defenders to take jumpers. It is a move defenders have been unable to solve. Cairns averaged 17.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game this season. She knocked down 43 3-pointers and converted 95 of 106 free throws (89.6 percent). The 5-foot-7 standout reached the 20-point plateau six times during her junior season, including in all three sectional games. Cairns also pumped in a season-high 29 points in a 68-56 loss at Shenendehowa on Jan. 31. Beyond her skills as a player, Cairns believes she has made major strides in other regards.

"I think I have gotten better at being a leader," Cairns said. "It is going to be different next year." When Cairns takes the court with the Blue Streaks for the 2019-20 season, it will mark the first time in her varsity career Flaherty will not be in the backcourt with her. Competing during the spring and summer months with the Albany City Rocks, Cairns has already received interest from nearly 40 Division I programs. "Right now, I am narrowing it down a little bit," Cairns said. "When I go to college, I want to be able to play right away." Cairns plans to make her college selection in the fall prior to the start of her senior season. Cairns realizes securing what has proven to be an elusive sectional championship will not be easy next winter, but she plans on doing everything within her power to lead the Blue Streaks to a title.

"It has been a great journey so far," Cairns said. "We just have to do better next year and go out with the title." First team Cat Almeida, Sr., Shenendehowa: Headed to play next at Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference power Quinnipiac, Almeida elevated her all-around game to a new level in her final scholastic season -- averaging 12.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 3.2 blocks per game. The 6-foot-5 senior shot 48 percent from the field and garnered Section II Class AA Tournament MVP honors after helping lead the Plainsmen to their third title since 2016 with a 62-54 triumph over Saratoga Springs. Dolly Cairns, Jr., Saratoga Springs: A three-time Times Union first-team selection, Cairns garnered Suburban Council Player of the Year honors from the league's coaches after averaging 17.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists

per game. The junior star will enter her senior season have scored 1,479 career points. Kerry Flaherty, Sr., Saratoga Springs: Elevated along with Dolly Cairns to the varsity early in her eighth-grade year, Flaherty compiled a stellar career for the Blue Streaks. Bound for Division I Holy Cross, Flaherty averaged a team-high 18.3 points to go along with 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. The shooting guard, a Suburban Council firstteam all-star, finished her career having scored 1,398 points. Hope Sullivan, Jr.,

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 Mechanicville

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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. Whether one chooses to be classic or bold, modern or traditional, there are various 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 care-

fully 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 mate-

rials. 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.

DIVIDE CONTINUED FROM 3

released last July and used data from 2015. Ron Deutsch, executive director for the Fiscal Policy Institute, a nonprofit thinktank in Albany that is separate from the Economic Policy Institute, said the imbalance is particularly stark in Saratoga Springs. "Saratoga is quickly becoming a city of haves and have nots," Deutsch said. Gordon Boyd, president of Mercy House of Saratoga, a church-affiliated affordable housing initiative, echoed that sentiment. "Saratoga is a contradiction," he said. "It's a seasonal tourist destination with a mix of hospitality businesses that the tourists demand, but the people who work in those businesses, the restaurants and hotels, have to commute 25 miles." Programs want more While some may look to the city and county for solutions, the Rev. Peter Cook, executive director of the New York State Council of Churches, who has joined with advocates for the poor throughout the state and Saratoga Springs, said the state could and should do more to bridge the gap. "County governments are limited to raise property taxes," said Cook, who headed up the New Hope for all of New York Budget campaign, which traveled throughout the state with that message. "They have to figure out other ways to raise revenue as the state flatlines or shrinks their allocation." Cook, Deutsch and a coalition of advocates for the poor unsuccessfully pressed state officials, including Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, to increase funds to programs that support education, health care and other services by imposing a 1.5 percent tax on those who earn $5 million or more.

"In some areas of the state, 50 percent of our children live below the poverty line," Cook said. "Our faith tells us a measure of our faithfulness is evaluated on how we treat our children. It's appalling when we have more billionaires in this state than in any other state in the union ... that we can have poverty levels at that height for children is really wrong. It's just wrong." Deutsch said he was disappointed by the recently passed budget. "Obviously there are some good things in the budget, but for our campaign, we wanted to see a much larger investment in programs and services for lower income New Yorkers. They were largely ignored in this budget." In addition to seeking higher taxes on those earning $5 million or more, Cook and his coalition are critical of the 2 percent tax cap, which they say forces austerity on counties, towns, cities and schools. "This whole property tax cap is kind of a gimmick because it does not address the reason we have higher property taxes," he said. "We could be addressing that problem if the state picked up more of its responsibility." County says it lifts burden County officials offered a different perspective on economic issues. Clifton Park Supervisor Phil Barrett said the state should do more by lifting the burden of unfunded mandates that he said cost more -- $63.2 million -- than the county takes in on property taxes -- $60.6 million. Barrett, who chairs the county's economic development committee, said the county helps residents prosper by keeping property taxes down. "The county has done a great deal of lessening the financial impact of businesses and residents within the county with low taxations. We are among

the lowest taxed counties or the lowest taxed county in the state, and we do not over-regulate," Barrett said. "We are already promoting an environment in Saratoga County that helps with any issues regarding economic inequality. High taxes and overregulation are what lead to economic inequality." Halfmooon Supervisor and the county Board of Supervisors Chair Kevin Tollisen said there are training programs in the county through its Department of Employment and Training, which connects those seeking employment or more training for better jobs with resources that can help them achieve it. "We work to help everyone that has the desire to maximize their potential (to) do so in Saratoga County," Tollisen said. "The county is also efficient in administering federal, state, and local social services programs to those who need them. Our diverse county allows people in rural and urban communities to excel in their chosen careers in a variety of important and impactful industries." He concluded that the county is "the best place to live, work and raise a family." City's homeless problem Yet income inequality persists and those who aid the poor say it presents itself most visibly in Saratoga Springs as homelessness. In Saratoga Springs, Boyd said there are people living in their cars and more living on the streets. Some homeless people have put up tents in woods near the Saratoga Springs train station. Shelters of Saratoga Executive Director Karen Gregory said Code Blue, the city's winter homeless shelter ran at capacity every night with an average of 60 people. Another 33 sleep at its year-round sober shelter. She said families, which her agency does not serve, typically

are housed in motels and hotels. CAPTAIN Community Human Services, which is based in Clifton Park and Glenville, houses homeless school-age youth (ages 13 to 17) in its emergency shelter in Malta. It identified 664 homeless children (kindergarten to grade 12) in Saratoga County in the 2017-18 school year. Of those, CAPTAIN has housed 98. Andy Gilpin, CAPTAIN's associate executive director, said he has seen an increase in poverty and homelessness in the last three years. "It's not just youth," Gilpin said. "There are veterans and victims of domestic violence." Housing possibilities Gilpin is optimistic as affordable housing units are being built in several places in Saratoga Springs, including the Intrada, a 157-unit project on Washington Street and West Avenue, near the train station. The New Jefferson/Vanderbilt 24-unit apartments have also been approved on Jefferson and Vanderbilt Street. Several projects are in the final stages: The Link at SoBro on South Broadway will have 110, The Promenade on West Circular plans to have 63 units and Allen Drive Reserve on Allen Drive and Tait Lane will add 200 units, making for a possible total of 554 new units for those seeking affordable homes. The Rev. Joseph Cleveland, minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Saratoga Springs, said such projects are necessary. He gets anywhere from one to several calls every month from people who need help paying rent. "If I haven't gotten a call in four or five weeks that means I'm going to get a call that week on rent," Cleveland said. "If it's not that, it's transportation issues. Since you can't afford to live in the town, you have to depend on a car. And if your car breaks

Poverty exists, too, as seen by tent camps in the woods near the train station off West Avenue. Beyond the city, Saratoga County's income inequality is wide; one indicator is the higher number of students getting free or reduced-price meals.

down, you don't have the means to repair it or buy another one." Deutsch, who said that the top 1 percent get a third of all the income in the state, pointed out that many Saratoga County residents on tight budgets often move to one of the county's many trailer parks. A look at the website www.mobilehome. net shows that Saratoga County hosts 122 of the state's total 723 trailer parks, more than any other county. "Trailer parks are Saratoga's affordable housing," Deutsch said. Inside the schools Disparities can also be seen in the schools, where nearly every district tracked by the Washington-SaratogaWarren-Hamilton-Essex BOCES has seen an uptick in students eligible for free or reduced lunches. In Saratoga Springs, 22 percent of school-age children are eligible. Eight years ago, it was 14 percent. In Mechanicville, 40 percent are eligible for free and reduced lunches. Eight years ago, it was 32 percent. The numbers on that measure of childhood poverty are even greater in the county's rural areas. In Corinth, 49 percent are eligible for free and reduced lunches, while at Hadley-Luzerne School district (partly in Warren County), 51 percent of students are eligible. Cook said that the state budget is a moral docu-

ment that should address income inequality by lifting up those with less. "A moral budget, according to our faith, gives a lot more preference to the poor and disenfranchised than is currently the case," Cook said. "That is the lens that we need, to be asking if this budget is a moral budget. Instead, this (state) budget tends to favor the needs of the very rich at the expense of poor people, people who are not able to fully participate in this economy. Our faith calls us to share more of God's abundance with everyone instead of engaging in this vision of austerity that suggests there are very few resources and those resources need to flow more to those who already have plenty." The Economic Policy Institute concludes that the problems caused by income inequality affect every corner of the country. It also underscores what Cook says, that policies are needed to address the disparities. "The abundant fruits of workers' labors should be spread much more widely than they are now," the study's authors wrote. "In short, making America great is about making the economy serve the lives of the many, not the narrow interests of the gilded few." wliberatore@timesunion.com - 518-454-5445 - @wendyliberatore
