LOW INCOME TAXPAYER CLINIC AT LEGAL AID SOCIETY OF NORTHEASTERN NEW YORK CAPITAL DISTRICT - The LASNNY LITC offers FREE tax help to low income New Yorkers who have a tax problem with the IRS. For example, if you got a letter or notice from the IRS that you don’t understand or a bill from the IRS that you don’t think you owe or that you can’t pay, or if you were denied an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) you thought you should have gotten, we may be able to help. The EITC could reduce your tax bill or even get you a refund if you qualify. You may be able to get the EITC if you have qualifying children and your earned income falls under a certain limit. This limit ranges from $37,870 up to $51,567 in 2013 depending on your filing status and number of children. Workers without children who had 2013 incomes below $14,340 ($19,680 for a married couple filing jointly) may also receive a very small EITC benefit. To qualify, a child must live with you for more than half the year. A son or daughter, grandchild, younger brother or sister, or niece or nephew, may be a qualifying child. The child must be younger than 19 (or 24 if they are a full time student) or permanently and totally disabled. Only one person can claim a child for EITC each year. Other age, residence, and filing requirements must be met. You must file a tax return and claim the credit to get the EITC, even if you don’t otherwise have to file. If the IRS denies your claim for the EITC and you don’t understand why, you may want to talk to an accountant or an attorney. The LASNNY LITC can be reached at (518) 462-6765 or (800) 462-2922, Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm.

As we wait for our world to thaw, I’d like to take some space to reflect on a couple of people that made contributions to the world of agriculture. These two men developed insights into the world of plants and products that could be produced from plants that borders on mystical. One was born at the end of the Civil War and overcame great hardship to become a respected agricultural chemist. The other was relatively uneducated and yet managed to introduce over 800 new plant varieties during his lifetime; a feat that has yet to be outdone. The two men are George Washington Carver and Luther Burbank. George Washington Carver was born of slave parents in 1864 or 1865 in Missouri on the Moses Carver plantation. Like most slave children of the time, he took the name of his parent’s owner. His father is believed to have been a slave at a neighboring farm although not much is known of him. Baby George and his mother were kidnapped by raiders from the south and although Moses Carver managed to locate baby George after the war was over (Moses Carver had to trade a racehorse to gain his release), his mother was never located and he never saw her again. Although not technically a slave, George remained at the Carver plantation as a boy. He was sick upon his return and was kept from hard labor. Instead, he cooked, sewed and tended the plantation’s gardens (which he loved best of all). It is said that he also wandered the woods “talking to the flowers” and collecting them. He even earned a reputation at this young age as a “plant doctor” often consulting with neighbors about plant problems they were having. During this time he also managed to teach himself to read and developed a strong desire to get an education; not the easiest thing for a black child in those days. At the tender age of 10, George left the Carver plantation to make his way in the world on his own. While he was earning his high school diploma, he supported himself by working as a farmhand, cook and in a laundry. He applied to Highland University but was refused admission when it was learned he was black. Finally, he was admitted to Simpson College in 1890. By this time Carver was about 30 years old. There were no science courses at Simpson so he studied piano and painting. An instructor there recognized Carver’s horticultural talent and encouraged him to pursue that rather than the arts. He took her advice to heart and was admitted in 1891 to the Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (now known as Iowa State University). Here, George Washington Carver blossomed into a true renaissance man. He was a leader in the YMCA. He was captain of the debate club and the campus military regiment. The school newspaper published his poetry and he even had two of his paintings exhibited at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. In spite of his excellence in the arts, Carver’s horticultural prowess allowed him to remain at the college as a graduate student. His insights and innovations with plant breeding led to his appointment to the faculty; another first at Iowa State College. In 1896, George Washington Carver, after publishing several papers on his work, completed his master’s degree. It was at this point that Booker T. Washington invited Carver to join the faculty of Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. It was here that all his training and intuition would revolutionize and revitalize agriculture in the south. For many generations farmers in the south had grown cotton. The soil was depleted and cotton was no longer a viable crop. Carver devised a method of crop rotation where a legume crop (such as peanuts) would be planted every other year to replenish nitrogen and minerals in the soil. This method was quite successful but soon there was a surplus of peanuts. Undaunted, Carver the chemist went to work to see what products could be developed from peanuts to make them a more valuable commodity. I guess you could say he succeeded. He managed to develop 325 products from peanuts and their shells. Products that range from nitroglycerine to hand lotion to animal feed to linoleum. So successful was he that soon farmers in the south were making more money on peanuts than on “king cotton”. While his remarkable development of peanut products is what Carver is best known for, it is just the tip of the iceberg. He introduced over 100 products from sweet potatoes and many hundreds of products from many other plants and even products derived from clay. While all these accomplishments are astounding to the point of being almost unbelievable, it is the philosophy of this great scholar that is the most endearing. Fame and wealth were of no importance to him at all. “God did not charge me or you for making peanuts. Why should I profit from their products?” He stated. His goal was to use his knowledge for the betterment of all and he encouraged his students to adopt the same attitude. He strove to make beneficial products from the common things that could be found near at hand. He advanced chemistry and agricultural as none before had. Although he was born out of slavery he was, in great part, responsible for the resurrection of southern agriculture. To be sure, Carver’s intellect and education enabled him to successfully develop the various products from the plants he found around the south. But, there’s more to it than pure science. His ability to understand the potential of a plant was uncanny and puzzled scientists. Carver contended that God and the plants themselves communicated with him. He was known to arise before dawn and wander the woods about Tuskegee just as he had the woods of Missouri in his childhood. It was during these pre-dawn treks that he gained inspiration. “Nature is the greatest teacher and I learn from her best when the others are asleep. In the still hours before sunrise God tells me of the plans I am to fulfill.” was his honest explanation. Considering his genius and the results of his labor, it’s hard to dispute his beliefs as unbelievable as they sound. He was an American genius and overcame hardship and prejudice to fulfill what he considered his sacred mission on behalf of humanity. We owe him much. Next week: the amazing Luther Burbank. Thanks for the read.

ONLY Service Dept. Open On Saturday in Burnt Hills! TOP-RATED SEDANS FOR THE NEW MODEL YEAR For the first time in 20 years, an American car has topped the list of the best-rated sedans, according to Consumer Reports. The Chevrolet Impala has seized the top-rated spot away from the Japanese and European manufacturers who have dominated the list for two decades. The 2014 Impala scored a 95 on a scale of 100. Many car enthusiasts and trend forecasters say this rating is telling of General Motors’ efforts to improve consumers’ perception of the brand. In one year, the Impala went from one of the worst vehicles in the category to the best. The Consumer Reports ratings include road test results as well as safety information. Reliability and owner satisfaction ratings provided on older cars are based on surveys from millions of subscribers. When rating sedans, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction, accident avoidance, overall MPG, and other qualities each factor into a vehicle’s overall score. Sedans are categorized based on size, with vehicles broken down into small, midsize and large categories. Sedans also are classified by their styles, such as upscale, luxury, sports, and even fuel-efficient. Overall, sedans remain a popular choice because they can provide a good balance of cost, comfort and efficiency. Many sedans are roomy, quiet and comfortable, making them ideal family vehicles for those who do not want the girth or potentially bumpy ride of a truck.

We Have Your Choice ...

Good, Better, Best Pricing on Most Repairs Regardless of Make or Model

In addition to the Chevy Impala, Consumer Reports list the following vehicles among their most highly-rated sedans: * Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE * Toyota Camry XLE (V6) * Honda Accord LX (4-cyl.) * Honda Accord EX-L (V6) * Hyundai Sonata Limited (2.0T) * Hyundai Sonata GLS (2.4T) * Chevrolet Malibu 2LTZ (2.0T) * Subaru Legacy 3.6R * Toyota Camry LE (4-cyl.)

Coordinating Efforts To Build Stronger Riverfront Communities

These days, local business and government leaders are putting in a lot of effort to ensure that the Tech Valley revolution positively impacts all southern Saratoga communities, not just a few along the Northway. To do things right, we can’t just create copycat versions of what’s successful in Malta, Clifton Park or Saratoga Springs. The correct approach is to take stock of community assets in Halfmoon, Mechanicville, Stillwater, Schuylerville, and Waterford and tailor economic and Pete Bardunias, community development efforts towards augmenting those resources already in place. This may seem coun- President/CEO, the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County terintuitive in an age where regionalism is considered key to effecting robust, coordinated economic change. There is a strong case to be made, however, that not only is the micro approach complimentary to the larger, regional efforts but that it is a vital, and heretofore missing, component. Our River towns have things going for them that you won’t find elsewhere. The canal, for one. Nearby railroads are another. They have history, be it maritime, industrial, and of course the American Revolution. They have a strong ethnic heritage, filled with descendants of immigrants who came here to build our infrastructure and work in our factories. These localities, so important in the history of manufacturing and transportation in our state, are also capable of potentially pivotal roles in its future. With changes in population trends, the cost of energy, food distribution needs and preferences, and infrastructure repair and capacity challenges, our waterways and rails have significant ability to pick up the slack. Finally, nearby adjacent properties are still available to house modernized, 21st century factories and warehouses. We held something special last week called a Riverside Chat, an informal group discussion that brought local business and community leaders to Mechanicville with an eye towards collaborative community development. More will follow - it will be a lengthy effort, but a worthwhile and rewarding one.

CALLING ALL MENTORS! CAPITAL DISTRICT - I am I can is a 501(c)3 organization that was created to mentor girls in grades 9 - 12. Programs provide needed encouragement, guidance and advocacy to students as they navigate their high school years and move toward post-graduation goals. We are seeking adult female mentors to work with students on a weekly basis. As a mentor you would spend time with and get to know your student, while developing a relationship that provides support and guidance. If you are looking for some meaningful volunteer work, this may be for you. This program focuses not as much on job skill mentoring, but more on providing a positive role model in the student’s life. You will help the student to develop core values and “encourage young women to discover their dreams, to believe in endless possibilities while empowering them to make it happen”. The organization is currently looking for mentors in the Clifton Park to Glens Falls areas. Immediate needs are to support girls in Hudson Falls, South Glens Fall, Glens Falls, Shenendehowa, and Ballston Spa school districts. If you have time on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and would like to have a positive impact on a girl in your community, please contact Founder, Avon Scherff at 518-6883010 ext 102, or email Avon@ scherffinsurance.com.

The following are a few tips for business owners when negotiating their commercial space lease. * Enlist some professional help. While seasoned business owners may be able to negotiate their commercial lease on their own, new business owners often benefit from the services of real estate brokers and real estate lawyers. Real estate lawyers can negotiate your lease, explaining key terms and conditions that may prove confusing to firsttime business owners. Real estate brokers can help you find the right location, and many real estate brokers

have a long working history with landlords. Such relationships can make the negotiating process easier, and they also can benefit business owners looking for the best possible location for their businesses. Real estate brokers often get first choice at the most desirable locations, so teaming up with an established real estate broker can increase your chances of landing a desirable property. * Emphasize affordable renewal options. The length of commercial leases favored by small businesses is often similar to the length of a lease on a private residence. Though the language might be more complex than that of a private residence lease, the length of a commercial lease agreement is typically one to two years. But business owners must be

diligent regarding renewal options and the cost of such renewals. Come the end of your lease terms, you don’t want to be met with a considerable and unexpected hike in rent just as your business is starting to take off. Work to get the most favorable renewal options possible so more of your operating budget can go into your products and not toward your lease.

who must pay for less routine maintenance, such as HVAC or plumbing repairs, and be sure to get such information included in the lease.

* Pay attention to extra fees. Many commercial leases include fees in addition to the monthly rent. Maintenance fees are common, and there may even be a separate set of maintenance fees when sharing commercial space. When negotiating your lease, ask to see a list of the costs and fees current tenants typically incur each month. When discussing maintenance fees, confirm

* Negotiate an exclusivity clause. Business owners often don’t want their competitors to move in across the street, and they certainly don’t want them to move into the same building. Protect your business from such a development by negotiating an exclusivity clause into your lease. Such clauses prevent landlords from leasing other spaces on the property to

When discussing such fees, inquire about utility costs as well. Utilities are often the responsibility of the tenant, but it still behooves business owners to confirm who will be paying the monthly utilities.

your competition. * Carefully read the default language. Before signing a commercial lease, business owners must familiarize themselves with the default language therein. Determine what happens if you default on the lease, including if you will be locked out upon your first missed payment and if the landlord will immediately initiate eviction proceedings in such instances. Many commercial leases also include language stating tenants are responsible for any legal fees landlords accrue in the case of a default. Though it might be difficult to negotiate the default language in a lease, business owners should still know that language prior to signing a lease.

REGAINING YOUR WORK-LIFE BALANCE Balancing work and family life is a major challenge for many professionals. Many established professionals find it stressful to juggle the demands of successful careers with the obligations they have to their families, and regaining that balance once it has been lost only adds to that stress. Part of the difficulty of balancing work and family life is that the challenge is ongoing. The threat of losing your work-life balance is never too far away, but there are steps men and women can take to regain that balance once it’s been lost.

sionals regain their work-life balance. If you tend to go it alone in the office, reach out to your colleagues more often, seeking their help on projects and offering your help in return. This can drastically cut back on the hours you spend in the office, giving you more quality time at home. But you also can work with your family to free up more time. Assign tasks around the house so you aren’t doing chores during the time you do have at home. Split cooking duties with your spouse or even the kids if they’re old enough and delegate other household tasks as well. Such tasks can be tackled while you’re at work so the family can spend more time together each night and on weekends. * Stop emulating Atlas. In Greek mythology, Atlas was condemned to standing at the edge of the Earth and holding the weight of Uranus on his shoulders. Many professionals can no doubt empathize with Atlas, even if taking such weight on their shoulders was self-inflicted. Regaining work-life balance may require taking some of that weight off of your shoulders by learning to respectfully decline extra projects around the office or in your personal life. You can still pitch in on special projects at work without spearheading them, much like you can still spend time with your kids at the ballpark even if you aren’t their coach. Cutting back on your obligations is a great way to reduce stress and free up time to focus on the things that mean the most to you. * Think outside the box.

Consider telecommuting one or two days per

week to free up time to spend with your family. If moving is an option, consider moving closer to your office so you aren’t spending so much time commuting to and from work each day. Even if you have seemingly exhausted all

options, chances are strong there is a solution to help you regain your work-life balance. But sometimes that balance requires a little creativity and some give-and-take with both your employer and your family.

* Start documenting your activities. No one operates at 100 percent efficiency all the time, but balancing obligations at work with those at home is especially difficult when time is routinely lost to trivial matters or tasks at work

that can be delegated to others. These time-consuming tasks have a tendency to add up, but professionals rarely take note of the smaller tasks or distractions that cost them time. Start documenting your activities on a daily basis, jotting down how each hour of your day is spent, both at home and at work. Do this for several weeks, after which time a pattern will likely develop, and you can see where you are wasting time and where you are being most efficient with your time. When you sit down to examine your notes, look for ways to free up time without sacrificing the quality of your work or the quality of time you spend with your family. Don’t be afraid to make changes.

LEARN TO TOW CARGO SAFELY Warm weather is on the horizon, and people from all over are preparing their vehicles for another season of road trips. In addition to packing the interior cargo areas full of equipment and luggage, many road-trippers also haul gear and recreational accessories with them. There’s more to towing than hitching a trailer and hitting the open road. A number of factors come into play when towing cargo or another vehicle, including the towing

capacity of the vehicle doing the hauling. The following are some safety tips for road trippers hitting the road with trailer in tow. Tow vehicles While many vehicles have towing capabilities, not all of those vehicles are necessarily right for the job. Review the towing capacities of various vehicles depending on the type of trailer that will be towed. A larger, more powerful vehicle may be necessary if

you will be towing something large and heavy, such as a boat or a recreational vehicle. You may need more horsepower to maintain a safe driving speed when towing especially heavy cargo. Equipment Different manufacturers offer towing packages equipped to work in concert with your vehicle. Towing packages may include certain types of hitches, batteries, flasher systems, extended-view side mirrors, and even special axles and tires. In many areas, a trailer with a loaded weight of more than 1,500 pounds requires a separate braking system and a breakaway switch located on the tongue of the trailer that activates the trailer brakes in the event it separates from the tow vehicle. Having the right equipment can mean the difference between safely towing cargo and getting in an accident. Ability Having a lot of power and the right equipment is not enough to safely tow cargo. Recklessness on the road, which includes driving over the speed limit, is a recipe for an accident. It typically takes time and some practice for drivers to grow accustomed to driving while towing cargo. Driving while towing cargo

requires that drivers maneuver their vehicles differently than they would in more typical conditions, and that they drive at slower speeds while leaving room for a larger turning radius. In addition, drivers must accommodate for the extra weight when braking. Vehicle check Verifying that the trailer hitch is secure is not the only inspection drivers must conduct before hitting the open road. The vehicle doing the towing should be serviced, and any repairs should be made. Check fluid levels, particularly the transmission fluid. In addition, make sure the water level in the battery is acceptable and have the motor oil changed if it is nearing its mileage limit. It’s also a good idea to replace the air filter, examine the tires for adequate tread and test the brakes.

When the trip begins, give your vehicle and the hitch a once-over to double-check that everything is in working order. This can be done during service station stops along the trip.
