TWIN CELEBRATION AT POEST. LIBRARY Poestenkill Library invites you to an Open House on Saturday, April 30th, to celebrate ten years in their present home. Friends of the Library seized the opportunity of the anniversary Open House to stage their annual Spring Market Day, also a veteran of ten years. As usual, Poestenkill’s Town Green will be covered with bargains in books, for all ages, on all topics. And, of course, awesome Attic Treasures, Plants, Accessories, luncheon treats. The Library porch will be overflowing with Baked Goods - including a dozen loaves of Dave’s famous Poestenkill Bread. Joanne and Alice’s Attic Treasures tables always depend upon salable donations, both to foster recycling, and to entice buyers. Here are some suggestions: antiques and collectibles; glassware and kitchenware; pottery and crocks; silver and china; plus furniture. For information, please phone Joanne (283-5534); Jean (283-6725); or Alice (283-4960), before Friday, April 29th. Judy and Joan, at the Accessories Table, welcome donations of gently-used scarves, jewelry, and purses. They may be left on Betty Zemanicks porch before April 29th. Please plan to join us on April 30th, from 9 to 1PM on Poestenkill’s Town Green. Rain date is Sunday, May 1st. Market Day is always fun, doubled this year with the Library’s Tenth Year Reception.

AMBER CELEBRATES HER BIRTHDAY! Since Amber came to us in 2004, her role at The Sweater Venture has grown dramatically. Originally she was only a tiny homeless kitten to whom we thought we were providing protection. However, she quickly showed us she has a wide range of skills. First, it was her “people skills.” Not only does she love all the attention from all of you who come to see her daily, but she quickly expanded that role and regularly steps to the door to greet you as you enter the store. You have let her know how much you enjoy her presence by selecting her as one of the Capital Region’s “best-in-store-pets” and in doing so she has become our ambassador to the community. She humbly thanks you for the recognition. From there it was only a matter of time. Since fashion is the name of the game around here, her eye turned to color, cut and fabric. Everyone wanted her opinion on how it looked, how it fit and did it “make them look fat?” She demurely declines to comment about such personal matters. Now Amber is offering you her weekly recommendations on new or special offerings as the seasons change. You can see some of those recommendations next to her photo in our store windows or on our Facebook page. When you visit our Facebook page, in addition to Amber’s specials, you will be invited to become a fan of The Sweater Venture. All eligible fans will be entered into a monthly drawing for prizes. This week I believe that she is recommending one of our newest arrivals, the “magic skirt.” While all this acclaim does not appear to have gone to her head, she has been reminding us that her birthday is coming up and she would prefer that it not pass unnoticed. So we are celebrating on Saturday, April 23rd, and we invite you to join us. From 10am to 3pm we will be having refreshments, door prizes and several in-store specials (we can’t wait to see what the birthday girl selects). Amber said she hopes we don’t make too much of a fuss over her, but she would appreciate any donations to the Mohawk & Hudson River Humane Society. See you on the 23rd!

e l i f o r P s s Busine 19 Albany Ave. (Rte. 20), Nassau • 518-766-7190 Jennifer and Anita cordially invite you to join us at our in-store M&M Wine Tasting on Sat., April 23rd, from 3-6 pm at the Nassau Liquor Store We are featuring wines made from Malbec and Moscato grapes. These fine wines will be poured by a special guest. Here’s a taste of what we are pouring: Lindemans Moscato, Fetzer Moscato, Walnut Crest Malbec, Trivento Amado Sur Malbec and Colores del Sol Malbec. Malbec grapes were originally grown in France, but during the 16th century they migrated along with some Italian immigrants to the foothills of the Andes, in Argentina. Here the grapes loved the rugged soil, high altitude, and climate, soon becoming the country’s national grape! Malbec wines earned their reputation and immense popularity because of their dark, inky color; plum, raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry fruit characteristics; and velvety smooth mouth-feel with a long-lasting finish. It’s secondary and tertiary flavors include potpourri, dried leaves, spice, chocolate and graphite. These fine wines are world renown and recognized for their quality, reliability and value. Malbec wines pair perfectly with red meats such as roast beef, steak and prime rib, or even turkey and chicken, and also Mexican, Cajun, Indian, and Italian foods with rich tomato sauces, making it a favorite holiday dinner pour. Our other feature is Moscato, a white wine made from Muscat grapes. Muscat grapes are prolific growers and are cultivated all over the world, from California to Italy to Australia. This fine wine is characterized by its low-alcohol content; high-acid levels; sweetness; and floral and citrus fruit notes. Moscato wines leave your palate refreshed and will brighten your day. Moscato pairs well with: soft-cheeses like Mozzarella, Gouda, goat, Gorgonzola or Provolone; salmon, shrimp or lobster; chicken or turkey; pork or veal; and spices such as ginger, nutmeg, lemongrass or

Brunswick Church 42 White Church Lane Troy, NY 12180 • 518-279-3792 www.brunswickchurch.org HAMMOND’S LETTER MISUNDERSTOOD Letter to the Editor: In the March 24 Advertiser, Paul Miller wrote an extremely critical letter about Keith Hammond questioning a decision made by Judge Jacon. I read the letter twice and still could not understand what Paul Miller’s point was. If his intent was to claim that Keith was opposed to the judge’s decision to appoint Mrs. Signoracci because she was not a Democrat insider, he is sadly mistaken. Judge Jacon did not pick her name out of the air. Bob Signoracci was a long time Democratic Mayor of Cohoes with a great deal of influence within the Democratic party. You obviously missed the point of Keith Hammond’s letter. Keith was pointing out the fact that it was a political appointment. Instead of appointing someone who has spent their life working to improve the quality of life in Rensselaer County, through volunteer work and a career in public service, the appointment went to someone who has political connections in Albany. In his letter, Paul never once told us why he believed Judge Jacon’s decision was the right one. He resorted to name calling, saying that Keith was unAmerican and compared him to Hitler because he did not agree with Judge Jacons decision. Our constitution allows us to disagree with our representation. Do you really think Hitler would have allowed Keith to disagree with his policies? Being able to disagree with our elected officials is what makes our country great. You should applaud Keith for speaking out. Do you really think it is easy to criticize your own political party? Keith has a right to his own opinion just as you do. I have no sympathy for the Democratic Party, as I am a registered Working Party, but I did understand the point Keith was trying to make in his letter. ~Erika Buchholz - Averill Park Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

SUPERFUND INCLUSION GOOD NEWS FOR NASSAU Letter to the Editor: For decades, residents of Nassau and surrounding communities have lived in a toxic shadow. A toxic waste site on Mead Road containing more waste than what was discovered in the infamous Love Canal has affected the environment, property and quality of life since the 1950s and caused no small amount of concern for those living near the site. An attempt by New York State to address the toxic contamination in the 1980s was widely regarded as a failure and is seen as leading to the unfortunate pollution of nearby Nassau Lake and tributaries of the lake. Through the more than five decades the toxic site has been with us, a dedicated group of residents and local elected officials have helped raise awareness and demanded attention on the issue. That work has resulted in increased testing and monitoring around the site, improvement of a dam at Nassau Lake and increased public awareness of the issue. The grassroots efforts have also paid off with the recent major announcement by the federal government that the Loeffel site has been added to the Superfund list. Inclusion on the Superfund list follows a visit earlier this year to the Loeffel site by Congressman Chris Gibson with Nassau Supervisor David Fleming, Nassau Highway Superintendent Fred McCagg and representatives of the County Legislature. The Superfund raises the profile of the clean-up needs of the site and can result in funding and other resources being committed. The inclusion of the Loeffel site comes after years and years of hard work by many dedicated residents and local officials and those involved in the effort, including the resident group UNCAGED, should be commended. That commitment will be needed in the coming months, as efforts will need to be made to ensure the federal agencies that control the Superfund do not lose focus on the need for a comprehensive clean-up of the toxic contamination that has plagued Nassau for too long. The coming months will be crucial in ensuring the inclusion on the Superfund list brings real and needed progress with the Loeffel site. ~Alex Shannon, Legislator - Environmental Committee Chairman Editor’s Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

POESTENKILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY THE BARBERVILLE FALLS Tom Hohman and Chuck Friday will be guest speakers at the Poestenkill Historical Society’s April 26th program on Harnessing the Barberville Falls. Chuck has studied the Barberville Falls and will be presenting a program on the history of the falls. Tom, who lives on Plank Road, has harnessed the power made from the falls with water turbines and uses the power it generates in both his home and sawmill. The Hohman Water Turbine Project is an example of how this form of power transmission operates two distinct applications along the Poestenkill Creek.By using a natural head of water provided by the Barberville Falls, Tom has designed, installed and is operating a 12KW water turbine/ generator system. Tom’s system uses the natural flow of the Creek to direct water power to a turbine, then reintroduces the water back into the Creek in an eco-friendy manner. Tom and Chuck’s program will be held in the Poestenkill Town Hall [RT351} at 7PM, April 26th.All our programs are open to the public and are free. Refreshments will be provided. For information, contact Pat at 366-3986 or WWW.Townofpoestenkillny.org/Town historian for our upcoming events.

SCHODACK PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION Most folks who live in Schodack know and appreciate the fact that we live in a beautiful town which is: rural in nature, yet easily accessible to cities, towns, and needed services. However, as much as we would like to be able to maintain and protect the “rural character” of our community, as citizens, we often feel powerless to affect the town’s policies in this area. This is the main reason I joined the Schodack Planning and Development Association (SPDA) approximately five years ago. This Association is an advocacy group dedicated to: encouraging smart planning for sustainable development, and raising the awareness of residents as to how they can participate in Town planning processes. Our main goal is focused on the implementation of a visionary comprehensive plan with the involvement all the key stakeholder groups. We believe that maintaining a healthy tax base as well as the character of Schodack is possible if the Town explores creative strategies for reducing sprawl & other development trends which could destroy the town’s natural and historic resources and other positive characteristics. We believe the Town can achieve these goals by taking advantage of the expertise of its citizenry and the resource of State and County government. Some of our accomplishments have included: The Future of the Town of Schodack: Perspectives on Growth and Development – This Report was developed with the input of more than 120 residents. We presented it to the Planning Board in Dec. 2007 with recommendations for action. One recommendation was the need for a Town Comprehensive Plan, which the Town now has. Commercial Design Guidelines Manual - In 2009, working with the Town, the Association helped develop this manual. The need for design standards was another recommendation in our 2007 report. Three SPDA members served on the Town Committee that developed the proposed standards. Community Forums - We have organized public forums on: “Town’s Drinking Water Resource”; “Schodack Town History”, “Schodack’s Farmland Forum” and “Strategies for Planning and Development in the Future”. We also sponsor “Meet the Candidate” nights prior to local elections. Want to learn more about our Association, call me at 477-9574 in the evenings or on the weekends. Our next meeting will be held at the Nassau Free Library on Church Street on 5/11 at 6:30 P.M. ~Tony Kirby, President SPDA

POESTENKILL MAKET DAY TO RAFFLE CIVIL WAR THEME QUILT When Judy Geise combined her skill at quilting with her love of history, she produced a unique and cozy history lesson. She calls the quilt a Civil War Chronicle. It commemorates the beginning of the Civil War just 150 years ago, and it will be raffled at Market Day, on Poestenkill’s Town Green on April 30th. Some of the quilt squares are printed with battles and dates; others with songs sung by the soldiers, and the dominant theme is the Lincoln pattern. Judy’s daughter, Christina Gordon, helped her design the quilt, and when both the handsome back and front were pieced, Judy’s friends Betty, Kitty, and Verna helped her “tie it off”. The result is a beautiful 48" x 72" heirloom. Judy’s raffle table also includes her wonderful Theme Baskets. Please join us for our traditional Market Day, on April 30th, from 9am to 1pm. And also celebrate the Library’s ten years in its present home at an Open House. Everyone is invited.

ELMWOOD CEMETERY CLEAN UP DAY Bring your civic pride and your gardening tools and join us Saturday morning, April 30th, at 9AM at the Elmwood Cemetery, Shaver Road, West Sand Lake. We meet at the storage shed for coffee and donuts and then get to work. WHAT DO WE DO? Rake up leaves, pick up broken tree branches and trim back shrubs or trees that can damage headstones. We also pick up dead flowers and faded plastic ones and wreaths and other decorations from Holidays past. That should give you an idea of equipment to bring along, plus if you have old tarps that can be used to drag accumulated items to the trucks, that would be great.

Class of 2011’s tennis all star, Chad Woodrow, is this week’s scholar athlete. Chad has been able to maintain a 95 grade point average for his high school career. This year Chad is taking courses such as: Calculus, Physics, Engineering Design and Development, Literature in Cinema, Economics and Computer Integrated Manufacturing. Chad has applied to SUNY ESF, Western New England College and University at Buffalo. Next year, Chad will be studying Green Mechanical Engineering at Western New England College. In the future, Chad hopes to graduate with a MBA and pursue a career in alternative energy. This year is Chad’s second year playing varsity tennis. He played with his dad when he was younger, but was not able to start competitively playing until he got to high school. Woodrow plays number four singles, but he will hopefully work his way up. Aside from playing tennis, Chad works at AJ’s Pizzeria, snowboards in the winter, and plays volleyball and basketball with friends. “My parents are great supporters of everything I do. Also, my brother is a big inspiration, because he has always pushed me to do more. My coach, Mr. Stacey, has been a great mentor and has really helped me progress in my game.”

TEAM SPARKLE RUNS FOR LITERACY Team Sparkle started as a way for a group of Rensselaer County residents to have fun and raise funds for a worthy cause. Team member Kristin Morgan is a Literacy Volunteers tutor who has chaired fundraising events for Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County in the past. Last year she combined her love of running and her dedication to the cause of literacy by challenging friends and neighbors to compete in the 5K Literacy Run/Walk. The result was a 16-member team called Sparkle. This year the team is gearing up once again for the 5K in Troy. On Sunday, May 1, runners between the ages of 12 and 60something will be out in hot pink Sparkle tee shirts, showing their support for literacy programs in Rensselaer County. The goal this year is for all the team participants to be sponsored runners. Since runners usually rely on friends and neighbors for sponsorship, this is a way for Team Sparkle to cast the net a little wider. “We love the Literacy Run,” said Kristin Morgan. “It’s a family event, and since it’s a run/walk, it means people of all ages and abilities can participate.” Literacy Run/Walk is made possible by CAP COM Cares Foundation, IBT Global, Fox 23 News, E. Stewart Jones, Stewart’s Shops, Cohoes Savings Foundation, The Record, Aflac New York, Architecture +, Gettysburg Flag Works, and others. Early packet pickup and pre-registration will be at the Troy Atrium, Saturday, April 30, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. For complete information, visit www.lvorc.org or call Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County at (518) 274-8526. For registration fees, and a full description of the course, visit www.lvorc.org. Runners can register online at Active.com For race questions, email us at Litrun2011@gmail.com. For more than 40 years, Literacy Volunteers has helped to build a more literate society by providing free, confidential tutoring to adults and out-of-school teens in reading, writing, and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL).

www.crwnewspapers.com SHERIFF JACK MAHAR PRAISES AVERILL PARK STUDENTS

RENSS. CO. 4-H YOUTH GET BOOST

Rensselaer County Sheriff Jack Mahar praised Averill Park High School students for their outstanding work on the “Empty Bowels” project. The students of art teacher, Ms. Mary Pat Wager and health teacher, Ms. Olga Ashline, created handcrafted bowls and soups and invited the community to a simple meal of soup and bread in exchange for a cash donation. The students raised over $2,100 for the regional food bank.

The Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store in Castleton joined 4-H in support of local youth with the 4-H TSC Paper Clover Campaign, a national in-store fundraising effort to benefit state and local 4H programming in each of the communities where a Tractor Supply Company store is located. The success of last fall’s campaign spurred TSC’s continued support of the community fundraising event. Beginning Friday, April 15, through Monday, April 25, shoppers at the Castleton Tractor Supply Company will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Rensselaer County by purchasing paper clovers for just $1 at checkout. All funds raised through this local 4-H TSC Paper Clover Campaign will be donated to 4-H, and will support local camps, after-school programs and other 4-H youth development program activities in Rensselaer County. “We are excited to begin our fall Paper Clover Campaign with the tremendous support of Tractor Supply Company again this year,” said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “Tractor Supply continues to be an excellent partner in our efforts to drive local support of, and community involvement in, 4H programs throughout the country. Their partnership in the Paper Clover Campaign will help provide funding to 4-H in more than 900 Tractor Supply Company communities across the nation, allowing youth to explore interests in everything from animal science to robotics.”

The Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen, in a sermon titled, “Jesus Defeat of Death! He Is Risen” will share the reality that witness to these events, and all that happened through Jesus’ love since the resurrection. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church begins its Easter Celebration in a Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. in the meadows of the Allen Homestead at the corner of Sharptown and Allendale Roads in Stuyvesant. It will be followed with a joyous worship service at 9 a.m. in its sanctuary at corner of Church Street and Route 9J, in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. The Nassau Reformed Church will hold A Tenebrae Service on Friday, 7 p.m. in its chapel on the second level of the ChurchSchool Building, 43 Church Street, Route 20. The service titled “On The Painful Side of the Cross” will use candlelight and Scripture to portray the events leading to Jesus’ death. Nassau Reformed Easter Service will begin at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary, and all are welcome to celebrate the glorious message of Easter.

At St. Jude the Apostle Parish in Wynantskill, a rich tradition has developed over the past several years and that is to honor those who give back so generously to our local community. We call that rich tradition, The St. Jude the Apostle Community Service Award. The St. Jude the Apostle Community Service Award honors those who exemplify the virtues of Christian Charity in their generous support of our church, school and the greater community. The past recipients of the St. Jude the Apostle Community Service Award have inspired others to dedicate themselves to service and this year’s recipients have been just as inspirational. We are proud to bestow the Fourth Annual St. Jude the Apostle Community Service Award on two people who have dedicated themselves in serving St. Jude the Apostle Parish and School. This year’s recipients are Mary Dworakowski and Edward Kehn. We will honor Mary Dworakowski and Edward Kehn at our annual Community Service Award Dinner on May 2, 2011 at 6:00pm at the Franklin Terrace Banquet House. The St. Jude the Apostle Community Service Award Dinner supports the Endowment Program for the St. Jude the Apostle School and the Tuition Assistance Program.
