Spa City Dems tap new leader Selection comes after mass exodus from committee

AUGUST 15, 2019

committee members opted to resign instead of halfheartedly back Morrison in the general election. Sarah J. Burger, an attorney and longtime committee member, was elected the party's new chair on Wednesday. The committee also tapped county Board of Elections Democratic Deputy Commissioner Cassandra Bagramian to serve as treasurer. Burger said in a statement that the committee is excited to elect its slate of candidates in November. "While I was surprised by the abrupt recent resignations, I am encouraged by the outpouring of people that are eager and committed to serving," she said.


SARATOGA SPRINGS - A former aspiring City Council candidate will lead the Saratoga Springs Democrats following the resignation of the party's executive committee. A leadership crisis arose after the Democratic primary in June, when incumbent Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan, who was backed by the city committee, lost a squeaker to Patricia Morrison. More than a dozen

Saratoga Springs Commissioner of Accounts John Franck, a Democrat, said in a statement that Burger will unite the party. The committee's leadership resigned in mid-July, saying the party should be led by people who will support Morrison's election bid. BURGER Madigan is still a viable candidate in November, as she appears on two minor-party lines and the Republicans didn't field a candidate. Eleven more members resigned a few weeks later, claiming they were choosing "the welfare of our city over party," as they now have the freedom to back "the candidates we are confident will best serve our city."

The interactions clearly pleased the three who say involvement in athletics helps girls excel in life. "We live in a competitive world," said Kerrigan, a two-time Olympic medalist in figure skating. "If you can learn to compete, you will learn time management, setting goals, dealing with setbacks, working as a team; the more attractive you are to the next stage in life."

Books for Troops Needs More Books CAPITAL DISTRICT - Books for Troops would once again like to thank all those who supported our “Adopt-A-Box” fundraiser. Even after the deadline, we continued to receive donations. The total donations were enough to send over 400 boxes of 40-50 books to our deployed troops and to those in the VA hospitals. It, also, enabled us put aside funds for special requests from the troops. However, in order to fill those boxes, we are in huge need for many more books. The donation of books has fallen drastically in the past few months. We have a special need soft-covered: mysteries, fantasy, history and biography, military non-fiction and fiction, mind body & horror. All other genres are always appreciated and used and needed. We also need Books on CD, puzzle books, CDs, magazines (especially car and health, or news magazines), and comics. Snacks are also welcome. Harlequin romances or books stored for a long time in attics or basements will not be sent to our troops, so please don’t donate them. Older, musty books cannot stand up to the rigors of living in a warzone or to the sterile conditions of hospitals. Harlequin romances are

requested by the troops to NOT be sent. Because of this shortage of books, we have once again added Clifton Park Town Hall as a drop site. Its hours are 9-5 weekdays. However, if you have a huge donation to make (over 100 books) please contact ekeegan3@nycap. to set up a time to drop them at our office in Latham. The drop boxes are not meant for huge donations. Thank you as always for making Books for Troops possible with your generous donations. Ellen Keegan.

Loving Homes Needed for Wonderful Animals

CAPITAL DISTRICT Capital District Humane Association, Inc. (CDHA. NET) is an all-volunteer, no-kill animal rescue group that has been saving animals of all kinds throughout the capital region and beyond since 1988.

then he started emailing and sending out his ideas to people.” The Aurora Games will come around every two years. Kerrigan said she is not sure how it will evolve, if more sports will be added or if it will remain in Albany. All acknowledged that now is the time for women to be in the sports spotlight. De Varona, who attended the Women’s Soccer World Cup where fans in the stands chanted “USA, equal pay,” said women’s voices are vital and should not be ignored. “We need many voices,” de Varona said. “Many voices will bring about change. We’ve seen it happen in tennis. We’ve seen it happen with the World Cup soccer team. The Aurora Games will be a great platform for us. It’s not just about competition, it’s about a dialogue. We need open dialogue about the future of women’s sports, fitness and the values of sports that can lead you forward in life.” Stubbs agreed. “There is nothing more important than giving a young girl an opportunity to play a sport,” she said “Because it is truly the best thing you will do in your life.” - 518-454-5445 - @wendyliberatore

Summer is lily season and I love lilies! They take little effort to plant and grow, and the rewards are huge. They’re winter hardy, so once you plant them they stay forever, multiply quickly, and provide large, often fragrant flowers. Lilies are available as bulbs in economical packages from the garden center in early spring and later as potted plants among the perennials selection. The variety of sizes and colors is amazing. No wonder I love them so much! All lily varieties grow from bulbs. All the wonderful varieties Native Canada Lily. we have to choose from were bred from about 150 wild lily types found worldwide. In fact, we have five native lilies that grow wild here in the northeast - the Michigan Lily, Turk’s Cap Lily, Wood lily, Trout Lily and the Canada Lily. If you are lucky enough to see one of these beauties, look but leave it alone. All are protected in New York State. The lily family contains some of the showiest flowers to be found anywhere, and many of the thousands of cultivars thrive in our northern climate including two of my favorites, Asiatic Native Trout Lily. and Oriental Hybrids. Asiatic hybrids are the first of the lilies to flower in early summer. They are also the most cold tolerant of all lilies. Asiatic lilies mature and reproduce rapidly, making them a rewarding choice for those just starting to dabble in lily growing. They are available in reds, whites, pinks, oranges, and yellows of every shade. Some feature solid colored petals while others are ornately speckled. Asiatic lilies come in a range of sizes from 2’ to 5’ tall! Oriental Lily. To find fragrance, we must sniff out the Oriental lily hybrids. Many Oriental varieties are hardy to zones 4 and 5, hardy enough to thrive in our area. Oriental lilies will produce some of the largest, showiest flowers that you could expect this side of the tropics. A sub-group of the Oriental lilies are the Imperial hybrids. Imperial lilies produce large, sometimes huge flowers on sturdy stems. The Imperial Gold strain, for instance, produces 5” to 7” fragrant flowers on plants up to 7 feet tall. After enjoying your lilies for 3 or 4 years, you’ll notice more Yellow Daylily. plants and flowers but they aren’t as tall as they used to be. This is a signal that they’re crowded and need to be dug and divided. Fall after frost or early spring when they’ve just started to sprout from the soil are the best times for dividing lilies. Another lily enjoyed by many is not a lily at all. Everyone knows them as daylilies, but they are not true lilies but hemerocallis. You have seen them growing wild in roadside ditches and just about anywhere. We can thank our ancestors who planted them generations ago. Hemerocallis is a Greek word meaning ‘beautiful for a day’. The name reflects the lifespan of each flower which opens in the morning and withers away at the end of a single day. Daylilies are about the easiest plants to grow. They love full sun but will thrive in partial shade and aren’t particular about the soil they’re planted in. Once established, daylilies last for a lifetime and longer. Only a few years ago, a clump of yellow daylilies was considered exotic. Now red, gold, peach and burgundy daylilies are turning up in perennial borders. Daylilies with bi-colored flowers, miniatures and repeat bloomers have also appeared. The daylily has come a long way from the common roadside flower that our ancestors planted. They have taken up a new role at the heart of the garden. Considering how easy they are to grow and how rapidly they multiply, you should give them a try. Thanks for the read.

rison said, "Saratoga Springs citizens have spoken and the message is clear -- from what was said at the doors and most importantly at the ballot box in the recent election -- we are not happy with the current Commissioner of Finance, her poor decisions at the council table and we ultimately voted for change." Burger ran an unsuccessful bid in 2015 to wrest the party's nomination away from the incumbent public safety commissioner. She abruptly resigned as city attorney in 2014 amid a political firestorm over a disputed land swap deal recently approved by the City Council, saying she wanted to protect her professional and personal integrity. There are about 7,400 enrolled Democrats in the city and 6,390 Republicans. - 518-454-5427 - @poozer87

include conversations with athletes, open practices, demonstrations and chalk talks. “It’s really important to see the athletes up front,” said Stubbs, who will do tennis commentary during the games. “Until girls see it, they don’t think they can be it. Once you give them exposure, they see how fun it is, then they want to do it. It’s very important for parents to bring their kids.” Despite Title IX, which banned discrimination on the basis of sex at schools receiving federal funding, all three admit said that women’s sports have a long way to go and that change is slow. “Just because a federal law is passed it doesn’t mean you don’t have to fight for those opportunities that are mandated,” said de Varona, a two-time Olympian gold medalist in swimming. “Only about 20 years ago, we had a third of the opportunities men had. Most schools are still not in compliance, but we still outperform men on the Olympic level.” The lack of opportunities for the female athletes was the reason for establishing the Aurora Games. Kerrigan said the idea was conceived by her husband, Jerry Solomon, a sports marketing executive. She said they were watching the opening ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics and Solomon noted that there were more women athletes than men. He then lamented at only seeing these athletes every four years. “He said, ‘This is crazy. We should do something,’” Kerrigan recalled. “Right

GLENVILLE - Centre Glenville United Methodist Church. Corner of Sacandaga and Bolt Roads. 5th Annual Fall Craft/Vendor Fair Sept. 28; 10-4pm. Fee $35.00; INSIDE SOLD OUT; outside room for 40 10x10. This is our fifth year and each year we have grown our vendor participation. Last year’s fair, in spite of some steep competition, was double the size from the previous year! Our local girl scouts have always sponsored a bake sale and we will set up a “Chuck Wagon” to serve a variety of hot and cold menu items throughout the day. We are looking into adding additional “attractions” for 2019 to draw even more patrons. We hope to see some of the same vendors from years past and look forward to meeting new entrepreneurs as well.
