Youth helps Burnt Hills to Class B title ByLINE: PETER HOLEHAN
SCHENECTADY - The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake wrestling team may be young, but it hasn't stopped it from rising to the occasion this season. On Saturday, the Spartans did it again. Burnt Hills crowned a tournament-high four individual champions on its way to winning the Section II Class B wrestling title over nine other schools at Mohonasen High School. Totaling 231 points, the Spartans had enough entering the finals (213) to outlast the rest of the competition. The next closest competitor was Ballston Spa, which finished as runner-up with 206.5 points followed by host
Mohonasen with 188 points in third. Burnt Hills freshmen Gabe Goss (113 pounds), Colin Carlin (126) and sophomore Victor Little (220) all won their weight classes. Senior Sammy Lindberg (132) was the lone Spartans upperclassman to take his weight division. "All year, we've been talking about getting bonus points and staying focused on the goal," Burnt Hills coach Steve Jones said. "This is a real mature group that loves wrestling and loves learning, so it makes it easy on me and the staff. After the first tournament (of the season), I felt that we were moving in the right direction. We've been waiting on a lot of these younger guys to come together. This freshman

MALTA - Residents in the hamlet of Maltaville, by a 99-82 vote Tuesday, rejected the creation of a water district that some homeowners had hoped would end years of struggles over poor water quality and wells that run dry.
"It surprised me. I expected it to pass," said Malta Deputy Supervisor Craig Warner, who served as chair of the Water and Sewer Committee. "This is a considerable defeat." He said he can't ask the Town Board to go back and do another map, plan and report on the cost, size of the parcels and overall cost of the project. The vote was the culmination of at least 15 years of efforts and the evolution of three successive so-called map/plan/reports, he said. He has studied the issue of water in Maltaville for four years and said he is certain the option

group is really special and we've got good junior and senior leadership so it's been a perfect storm." Next up will be the Section II wrestling championships held at Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls next weekend. Burnt Hills' last Class B title came in the 2014-15 season. The Spartans were bolstered by the return of Goss and Little to the team this season. "Goss, at 113, was injured last year when he was 10-0," Jones said. "He had surgery and when he came back, we knew that he would be a little hammer coming back this season. Please see YOUTH 8

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 acall 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
State IG: Two area contractors charged SARATOGA SPRINGS — Two Capital Region contractors are facing felony charges after allegedly failing to obtain workers’ compensation coverage for their construction workers. State Inspector General Letizia Tagliafierro said Thursday that Segundo Loja and Robert A. Lutz were arraigned in Saratoga Springs City Court on charges related to their failure to obtain coverage. Loga, an Albany resident and owner of NY Power Construction Corporation, allegedly submitted a certificate of insurance indicating his company had obtained both commercial general liability and workers’ compensation insurance coverage, as required by all entities with employees, she said. The inspector general confirmed with the carrier that his business, which had several workers, did not in fact carry insurance, she said. He was charged with falsifying business records, failure to secure compensation and fraudulent practices, all felonies. Lutz, a Ballston Spa man who owns Robert’s Roofing & Remodeling, was charged after he allegedly submitted a building permit application for a residential roofing job to the Saratoga Springs Building Department last July that claimed he had no employees. According to the IG’s office, multiple witnesses however
said they observed three people working on the job throughout the project, all of whom lacked coverage. He was charged with offering a false instrument for filing and fraudulent practices, both felonies, as well as failure to secure compensation, a misdemeanor.
Two charged in January burglary HOOSICK FALLS —Village police Thursday said they arrested Peters-burgh residents Zachary Deltoro, 26, and Natasha Michaels, 24, after an investigation into a Jan. 25 burglary. Michaels was charged with burglary, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor. Deltoro was charged with burglary, petit larceny and grand larceny, a felony. Chief Robert Ashe said the grand larceny charge was the result of a motor vehicle Deltoro took and sold without the owner’s permission, Ashe said. Both were arraigned and released pending their next date in Village Court. — Staff reports

done an awesome job and got the job done against a tough opponent from Ballston Spa (defeated Connor Gregory 3-0). Victor didn't wrestle last year. He capped it off with a finals victory (11-5 decision) in the 220s (against Queensbury's Seth Guay)." Lindberg (31-8), who has been a part of Burnt Hills' program for six years, won his second Class B championship with a 9-4 victory over Ethan Weller of South Glens Falls. A sequence where he had an escape and a takedown in succession provided a comfortable lead in the third period. At 126, Carlin avenged last year's second-place finish with a pin over Queensbury's Kaiden Laluna in 1:58. "I just wrestled like myself and tried not to do anything too special," said Carlin, who improved to 24-14. "I've been working on my cradles and that's what really helped me win the match today. Without that cradle, I don't know what I would have done. My game has just skyrocketed this season." Jones pointed to the team's hustle to the last buzzer as a main reason his team is interesting to watch. Other tournament highlights included the extension of a perfect season for Averill Park junior Sean Malenfant, who moved to 36-0 at 152 pounds after beating Amsterdam's Nick Rodecker. Columbia sophomore Michael Altomer, who jumped up 50 pounds in his weight division from a year earlier, gutted out a tough 5-3 decision over Ballston Spa freshman Darrien Insogna to win the 195-pound title.
in the district boundaries in the southern end of town. The area comprises Knapp Road, Route 9, from Round Lake to Woodfield Boulevard, Easy Street, Route 67 East from Route 9 to the town line, Lake Ridge Road, Old State Road, Dugan Hill Road and County Route 80 or Maltaville Road. For years, residents in the area have complained about discolored and foul-smelling water from wells that easily run dry. To address the problem, residents have drilled wells or devised onsite storage. Warner said he also knows of families who shower at hotels. Warner said those who have been coping with poor water quality and lack of capacity will have to continue with the filtering processes and storage plans they've devised. "It know it's a cost factor and some people are retired and on a fixed income," Warner said of reasons why the district was defeated. "I got a lot of messages this morning from people who are very disappointed," he said. "It's very unfortunate to have gone this far and have it defeated."
