notes from the SUPERVISOR’S OFFICE
5209 Western Ave, Guilderland • (518) 356-1980 • www.townofguilderland.org
ovember is the month that really brings the full change of seasons to us, and it is a month where things are very busy for people here in Guilderland. The Guilderland Highway Department is fully involved these days in the Town’s annual leaf collection program. Our leaf vacuum trucks are circulating throughout the neighborhoods where they are able to operate, picking up leaves on the scheduled dates for the neighborhoods, plus making additional swings through different areas as their schedule allows. Highway Department crews will be picking up bagged leaves in neighborhoods where the vacuum trucks cannot operate. Your street’s pick-up dates were printed in the Town newsletter mailed to all our residents in September. If you didn’t note the pickup dates when you received the newsletter, you can check on the Town website, www.townofguilderland.org. Please be sure that leaves are placed in the street adjacent to your curb line to avoid damage to Town equipment, and show concern for your neighbors and our Town work crews by not piling leaves in a way that restricts visibility. Also, branches and brush set out for pickup needs to be cut into pieces no more than 4 feet long and tied into bundles that a single worker can readily pick up for collection. If you have any questions, please call the Highway Department at 861-5108. I have presented the 2012 Town Supervisor’s Draft Budget to the members of the Guilderland Town Board, which will vote on it at its meeting on Thursday, November 10. The continuation of difficult times in the national and regional economy, along with New York State’s imposition of a cap on the property tax levy, have caused the Town to scrutinize costs very carefully in every area, and to scrupulously avoid being overly optimistic in projecting revenues. This approach has resulted in a draft budget that leaves the Town tax rate unchanged at 26 cents per thousand dollars of assessed valuation again in 2012. In order to accomplish this, Town employees and elected officials will once again receive no raises in 2012, and several positions have been converted from full-year to seasonal status, but there are no changes proposed in the range or the level of services provided for our residents.
Each year, I like to take the opportunity to encourage residents to keep up on Town affairs by watching Town government meetings on Channel 17 on the local cable television networks. Town Board meetings take place on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, and are broadcast live on Channel 17. These meetings are rebroadcast at 1:00 and 7:30 P.M. on the following Friday, and at 7:00 P.M. on the following Saturday. The Zoning Board of Appeals meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month. These meetings are broadcast live, then replayed at 1:00 P.M. the following Thursday and at 7:00 P.M. the following Saturday. The Planning Board meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, with live broadcasts of its meetings, as well as replays the following Thursday at 1:00 P.M. and the following Saturday at 7:00 P.M. Altamont’s Village Board meets at 7:00 P.M. on the first Tuesday of the month, and its meetings are taped for rebroadcast at 11:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. on the Thursday and Saturday after the meetings. With Thanksgiving occurring in November, I think that this time of year is a time when all of us in Guilderland can take time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for in a community like our own. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my wishes for a happy Thanksgiving to all of Guilderland’s residents and their families.

ovember in the chamber world is consumed with a health insurance ac vity called OPEN ENROLLMENT. We get new plans, new rates, and chamber members who wants to make changes to this me can do so. We have very good news from our insurance carrier, CDPHP, that while some rates are increasing a teeny bit, others are actually going down in price! If you or anyone you know who owns a business wants to look at our new rates, they can go to our website at www.guilderlandchamber.com/ insurance.html to view them. We even have a high deduc ble plan (like major medical) that only costs $103 a month!!! We had a busy month in October doing grand opening ribbon cu ngs, and do have a few more, including TCBY on 11/11/11! TCBY low fat frozen yogurt is not a new thing, but it is located right next to Five Guys on Western Ave and is healthy in a very health conscious me. This ribbon cu ng is open to the public, school is oﬀ that day, and there will be free 3 oz TCBY, face pain ng, balloons and more from Friday Nov 11 through Sun Nov. 13. We also have heard rumors that we are ge ng a deli at the old Wendy’s, a Super Cuts at the 20 Mall (Hamilton Square) and s ll rumors that Recovery Room is coming there too! The chamber has some great networking events- at Central Steak on Nov. 9, a women’s business luncheon with Dr Mark Hillman at the Pine Bush Discovery Center on Nov. 16, a Friday Business Breakfast open to anyone about websites and internet marke ng on Dec 2, and a bus trip to New York City Dec 3, also open to anyone.

13 THINGS A REAL ESTATE AGENT MUST DO TO SELL YOUR HOME IN THIS MARKET Guilderland, NY - It is no secret that the Guilderland real estate market has changed dramatically over the past several years. Currently there are e approximately 282 existing single family homes forr sale in Guilderland ranging in price from $89,900 to o $1,600,000 with a median list of price of $352,450. 0. Approximately 198 existing homes closed during g 2011 as of the end of October, with a median sale e price of $224,149. On average about 20 homes sold d each month in Guilderland in 2011. Based on thiss absorption rate and the current inventory we havee over a year supply of homes currently on the market. t. The days of putting a sign in the ground and having g multiple offers in 24 hours ended for the most part, t, in 2006. Today, a real estate agent needs to be a strategist that can position your home correctly to o reach the right buyer. However, not all real estate agents are the same and many homeowners simply don’t know what questions to ask when hiring an agent. Picking the right agent can lead to a wonderful experience that gets you moving on with your life. However, hiring the wrong agent can literally cost you thousands of dollars and put your life on hold for months! If you are considering selling a home it pays to know what questions to ask your agent before you sign any paperwork. As the market slowed over the past several years, many real estate agents failed to adapt to the market changes and continued to conduct business “as usual”. Over the past 12 months we have sold many homes in days, that were listed with other agents for six months or more without a sale. We did it by doing things differently and not simply putting a sign in the ground hoping the best. The experience made us aware of how the market has changed and
how real estate agents need to adapt. In response to the market changes and questions from our clients, we have compiled a free report “13 Things your Agent must do to Maximize your Profits”. These are 13 items you simply must ask any real estate agent about before you hire them. Doing so can literally save you thousands of dollars! This report is available free of charge by calling our hotline 24 hours a day. In addition, for an update on current market conditions visit us at www.guilderlandmarkettrends.com for a real time market update specific to your home and neighborhood.

COMMUNITY CAREGIVERS TO HONOR ALBANY COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY DAVID SOARES, PASTOR CHARLIE MULLER AND CHARLES TOUHEY A Harvest Happening is the theme of the 17th annual gala to benefit Community Caregivers, which will be held at Albany Country Club on Saturday, November 19. The annual gala is one of two major events to raise funds for Community Caregivers. This year’s event will honor three men who are community leaders in their own right. District Attorney David Soares and Pastor Charlie Muller will receive the Community Caregivers Public Service Award. Charles Touhey will receive the Joseph A. Bosco Community Service Award. DA Soares was elected Albany County District Attorney in 2001 and reelected in 2008. During his two terms in office, Mr. Soares has redefined the role of the District Attorney to emphasize public integrity and crime prevention. He also has shifted the criminal enterprise prosecution paradigm by taking action against the leaders of organizations instead of low-level offenders. Some of his initiatives include: Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.), addressing crimes committed against senior citizens, and to help prevent crimes of opportunity against one of our most vulnerable populations. The Community Accountability Board, which empowers community members to take responsibility for the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Pastor Charlie Muller is best known in the Capital Region for starting the first ever Gun Buy Back Program in Albany. To date the program has taken over 350 handguns from the streets of Albany and Schenectady. A recent study in 2010 showed that there was not one homicide in the city of Albany during the year with a handgun. Pastor Charlie established the Victory Christian Church in Albany and recently opened a second church located in Colonie. His passion is clearly for needy children, building and opening the first Children’s Only Feeding Center in Albany. To date there have been over 400,000 meals served to at-risk inner-city children. In 2010, he received the Boys & Girls Club Community Impact Award. Charlie Touhey has been a main stay in Capital Region for many years. He has extensive experience in the private sector with an emphasis on real estate and housing. He currently is Managing Partner of The Latham Four Partnership and oversees one million square feet of offices and distribution facilities in New York and Florida. He has also developed several residential subdivisions using such innovations as modular housing. In addition, he is also Vice President of Orange Motor Company, as well as the President of The Spare Room, Inc. a mini-storage facility with over 3,000 units. At the present time Mr. Touhey is supervising construction of 50 new owneroccupied two family homes in Arbor Hill. He is a member of the College of Saint Rose Board of Trustees and a Board member of the Albany Center for Economic Success, a small business incubator, which assists women and minority entrepreneurs in starting up new enterprises. Sponsors for the event include: Adirondack Environmental Services, Christopher J. Cassidy and Wells Fargo Advisors, PBR Graphics, NBT Bank, St. Peter’s Health Care Systems, Netrition Inc, Selkirk Cogen, Times Union, Berkshire Bank, Max E. Churma, S2S Enterprises, Norman and Micki Massry and The Nigro Companies. Tickets for the gala are $100 per person. In addition to cocktails and dinner, there will be a silent and live auction. For more information on sponsorships or to donate an auction item please call 456-2898.

ADVANCE MEDICAL DIRECTIVES The law recognizes that we have a fundamental right to consent to or refuse medical treatment. But what happens when we are unable to communicate our wishes with respect to medical treatment? The law provides that we can execute certain documents in advance that can facilitate the process. We will discuss two of them, health care proxies and living wills, in this article. Q. What is a health care proxy? A. A health care proxy is a document that appoints someone to be your health care agent. A health care agent can make medical decisions on your behalf. Q. When does the health care proxy become effective? A. A health care proxy becomes effective only after a doctor determines that you are unable to communicate your wishes yourself, e.g. if you are unconscious or in a coma.
Q. What is a Living Will? A. A Living Will is a document that serves as evidence of your wishes with respect to end-of-life care.
Q. What decisions might the agent be called upon to make? A. Some of the decisions your agent may be required to make include what medications to take or refuse or what procedures or surgeries to undergo.
Q. What are some of the issues a Living Will addresses? A. A Living Will can express your wishes with respect to lifeprolonging procedures and end-of-life treatment when it has been determined that you are in a persistent vegetative state or have no hope of recovery.
Q. Can the health care agent make a decision that is against my own wishes? A. If you have previously communicated to your health care provider your wishes with respect to certain medications or procedures, your health care agent cannot overrule your decision once you lose your ability to communicate.
Q. What are some of the issues I can address in advance? A. You can use your Living Will to express your desire to withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment, such as artificial respiration, artificial hydration and artificial nutrition when you have no hope of recovery. You can also indicate a desire to be taken off medications, even antibiotics, if there is no hope for your recovery.
Q. Does the health care proxy make the health care agent responsible for my medical bills? A. No. You remain responsible for payment of medical services provided to you, whether you personally consented to them or your health care agent consented on your behalf.
Q. What about pain management? A. You can use your Living Will to express a desire for maximum pain relief, even if that were to hasten your death.
Q. Can my health care agent override my decision to be an organ donor? A. No. Your health care agent cannot cancel your decision to be an organ donor if you have filled out an organ donor form. Q. Can my health care agent make decisions regarding end-oflife choices? A. Your health care agent can make decisions with respect to end of life care only if you can show that you have communicated your intentions to the agent. A separate document called a Living Will can accomplish that.
Q. Can I ever change my Health Care Proxy or Living Will? A. A health care proxy and living will can be changed at anytime, so if you change your mind about certain procedures or wish to change your health care agent, you are free to do so. Q. Who has the ability to complete a Health Care Proxy and make a Living Will? A. Anyone 18 years or older can make a Living Will or complete a Health Care Proxy. To be effective, the documents need to be executed and witnessed in conformance with New York State law.

hile driving to school with my son and his friend the other day, we were discussing an upcoming football game. As you may or may not know, I am a huge fan of football. That is, when my son(s) are playing. I have been working on my self control as a spectator – I tend to get a little excited to say the least – but this article is about balance so I’ll leave adult self control for another time. We were talking about how great it feels to win and how terrible it feels to lose. I told them that it all balances out. Everything in our universe is in balance. It is necessary for someone to lose if someone wins. We discussed the far eastern philosophy of yin and yang, positive and negative, light and dark, and the list goes on as long as you would like to take it. Everyone understands money, so I used the example of wealth on a global scale. Compared to the average person in our community, there are people with such financial wealth that it staggers the mind. There are also people in such poverty that we cannot imagine. It all balances. The concept of communism forces the balance to average out so everyone is just kind of happy; like a tie football game that is unresolved. In our society, and most countries globally, we need the winners to give us something to strive for and to keep us working and hoping and challenging ourselves. We also need to be winners sometimes to feel successful. What I tried to tell the boys was that you can’t have joy without sadness, you can’t have a win without a loss, and you can’t have love without hate. It just doesn’t work out. Without the yin to go with the yang the technique is incomplete. Without the football loss we cannot experience the football win. Without a concept of hate, we cannot know love. With nothing to compare to, everything would just feel kind of okay, like a tie game. You may find all of this saddening, but actually it serves to make sense of the world and why things are the way they are. The concept of necessary balance regarding economics, physics, or competition can provide a sense of comfort through understanding the way things work. This realization has helped me remain calmer at games, for a game in football represents so much more than just a game; it is full of life lessons. Just like Taekwondo. Find your lesson and your balance in the things you do. Guilderland Martial Arts is a proud sponsor of Guilderland athletics, and in particular football, since I love the game and my children play. As I always say: Integrity, Self Control, Great Spirit, Courtesy, Perseverance ... in taekwondo, in football, in life. Great season Dutch. Go Dutch 2012!

A. Halloween candy definitely gets a bad wrap at the dentist office. But we are here to tell you a few tips that will allow your kids to still enjoy their Halloween candy. Sugar in candy is the main culprit in causing cavities. Bacteria in the mouth turn sugar into harmful acid that eats away at the tooth structure. Actually, this process is true with many other foods and drinks that contain sugar, so these tips are useful everyday, all year long. Here are several ways to prevent cavities from Halloween candy: â€˘ Limit the total amount of candy (sugar) â€˘ Eat a few pieces at one time, instead of several times throughout the day â€˘ Avoid extra hard or sticky candy â€˘ Brush and floss the teeth to remove sugar and plaque before it can do damage â€˘ Drink water to dilute the acid and remove food debris â€˘ Chew sugar free gum to remove food debris and stimulate protective saliva flow Using a combination of these steps will help minimize the risks of cavities in your familyâ€™s teeth, especially when our homes are filled with Halloween candy this fall. If you have any questions, please call my office at 518-356-5635 and ask for Dr. O! &RPPLWWHGWRFRQWLQXRXV WUDLQLQJDQGXVLQJVWDWHRIWKH DUWHTXLSPHQWDQGWHFKQLTXHVWR PDLQWDLQWKHKLJKHVWTXDOLW\RI GHQWDOFDUH

The nervous system and immune system are hardwired together to create optimal responses for the body to heal. Neural dysfunctions due to spinal misalignments are stressful to the body and cause abnormal changes that lead to a poorly coordinated immune response. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost the responses of the nervous and immune systems. The autonomic nervous system is hardwired into the lymph organs such as the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and bone marrow that produce the body’s immune response. Growing evidence shows that immune function is regulated in part by the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system- the very part that is directly affected by an adjustment!
Subluxation or misalignments of the spine cause compression and irritation of nerve pathways affecting organ systems of the body. Subluxations are an example of physical nerve stress that affects neuronal control. According to researchers, such stressful conditions lead to altered immune function & increased susceptibility to a variety of diseases. At the Spinal Wellness Center, we are always striving to help people enjoy OPTIMAL HEALTH. Our regular patients know they don’t get sick as much, and when they do their body fights it rather than collapses under it. Don’t collapse under illness all winter, call today for a complimentary consultation. 869-3415 Follow us on Facebook! Dr. David and Jennifer Noonan Spinal Wellness Center Albany
