Hello everyone and welcome… to Welcome Home, your go-to guide for living in the Saratoga Region. Chad Beatty, If this is your first time Owner/Publisher looking through Welcome Home, you will see that the entire guide book is color-coded, making it quick and easy to navigate your way through the pages. Are you looking for all the details on your local schools? No problem, turn to the ORANGE section. Do you need to contact your town's dog catcher or clerk? Browse the TEAL section. Is mom or dad getting older? Flip to the YELLOW pages for the best in Senior Care. But before you dig into the details, I recommend that you spend some time in the Dark BLUE pages in the front of the magazine and find out what makes our county tick.

We proudly boast the oldest continuously run thoroughbred race course in the nation as well as world class polo. If entertainment and dining are your thing, then look no further: Stop by the Saratoga performing Arts Center, aka SPAC, to check out some of today’s hottest stars, best ballets and a classical season second to none. And the culinary scene beats out everything in the Northeast! Checkout our dining guide on pages 118-122. Bon appetite! So browse the book, mark your favorite pages, and enjoy life in our little corner of the world. And last but not least, if you have an idea for a category not listed in our guide, let us know and we will work on it in the 2015 edition of Welcome Home. Thank you for your support, and enjoy life in the Saratoga Region!

Did you know Saratoga County is the fastest growing county in NY? Yes it is!

Beauty's Best Kept

Secret One of the biggest issues I hear from women in my practice is negative self talk. Constantly raising the bar of perfection and never really taking the time to acknowledge the little and big accomplishments of reaching a goal or simply being “good enough”. When we are constantly critiquing ourselves we set the stage for an anxious heavy heart and negative attitude. I hear from so many women who get into the trap of comparing themselves to others and the result is never feeling good enough. The best way to work through this negative self doubt is to simply make a decision that you will, under no circumstances, continue to put yourself down. If I punched you in the face you would immediately defend yourself. Your adrenaline would kick in and you would seek protection and safety for

yourself. You would put ice or healing ointment on your face to get the swelling down and sooth the pain. Your natural instinct is to take care of yourself when being physically harmed. We need this same level of attention and care when it comes to caring for ourselves emotionally. Every time you look in the mirror and choose to reflect on every blemish, wrinkle and flaw you are punching your heart, spirit, body and soul. These repeated jabs will leave your heart with deep emotional scars that can eventually lead to a dark and depressed spirit. We would never talk to our best friends the way we speak to ourselves. Would you say to your bestie, “Your thighs could have their own zipcode girl! Or, “Hey Pal, didn’t you get the memo… CARBS are NOT your friend! Rather, we would encourage our bestie in the pursuit of health and wellness and chose to see her with eyes of love and acceptance. Would if we made the choice to treat ourselves the way we would treat our most treasured loved ones? Often times I hear women say, “Why can’t I just like myself like Suzie does? She seems to just be okay with who she is . . . what’s her secret?” My dear ladies the secret is there is NO secret. It’s a daily sometimes even minute-by-minute choice to accept and like who you are. The difference between people who have a positive aura about themselves and the people who don’t is a DECISION.

Imagine if you could right at this moment make the decision to treat yourself with love and respect. Imagine today that you could declare with conviction, “From this day forward I will learn to love and accept myself. I will no longer abuse myself with negative self talk and criticism. I will learn to get into the habit of seeing myself with eyes of love and acceptance. I will not spend one more minute tearing myself down.” This very simple decision is perhaps the best kept beauty secret around. The choice to like who you are and accept yourself as is, leads to bright shiny eyes, a beautiful smile, a sparkly “je ne sais quoi” aura and a body that walks around feeling confident and fit. You can buy every anti wrinkle cream on the market and botox yourself frozen but no amount of product will produce the amazing results that love and self acceptance do. Cultivate a beauty routine that is based on being good to yourself and treating yourself with love and respect. The fact is, there is only one YOU on the entire plane. No one else has your smile, sense of humor and unique gifts and talents. When we compare ourselves to others we are literally rejecting our existence on the planet. Make the choice today to honor who you are and what unique gifts you bring to the world simply by being YOU. Do not spend another minute beating yourself up. Take a look in the mirror, look deeply into your eyes and apologize to yourself for all the crappy things you have said to your heart. Let your spirit know that you will make a conscious choice daily to treat yourself as well as you would your favorite bestie. Don’t wait to feel good, make the choice and decision NOW to trade the voice of self doubt for LOVE and ACCEPTANCE! YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Farmers ’ M arkets

Saratoga County is one of the healthiest counties in the state, and there are plenty of reasons why. For one, it certainly doesn’t hurt that we have access to fresh, local and organic foods at our area farmers’ markets.

Saratoga Farmers’ Market The Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market is a wonderful year-round destination to find fresh fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, homemade baked goods, local meat and eggs, fish and seafood, dairy products, jam, honey, maple syrup and many types of prepared foods with a global flair. The market also features cut flowers, garden annuals and perennials, and garden “starts” for transplanting, as well as handcrafted goods and gift items. From May to October, Saratoga Farmers’ Market sets up twice a week—Wednesday afternoons from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.—under the pavilions in High Rock Park, on the edge of downtown Saratoga Springs just east of the City Center. You’ll find a mouth-watering assortment of farm-fresh ingredients, as well as a growing number of prepared foods that are ready to eat on the spot or take home and re-heat for a delicious meal. During the colder months, from November to April, you can still get local products, including a wide array of fresh vegetables, at the indoor market. In wintertime, Saratoga Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the historic Lincoln Baths building in the Saratoga Spa State Park. The winter market is known for its variety and for adding saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com

warmth and community spirit to cold upstate New York winters. Don’t miss it! The Saratoga Farmers’ Market has grown tremendously since it started in 1978 as a small group of vendors in a parking lot. Nowadays, more than 50 vendors make the market a thriving commercial enterprise all through the year. The Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market Association (the collective of farmers and producers) also runs warm-weather markets in Malta and Clifton Park. Supporting local business is very important to the communities in Saratoga County, and that’s a theme that plays out every week at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. With only a few exceptions, all of the products are grown or produced locally, within Saratoga, Schenectady, Rensselaer, or Washington counties. When you shop at the market, you are buying unique products, supporting local families, and contributing to the growth of our regional economy. At any time of year, there’s much more to visiting Saratoga Farmers’ Market than just “grocery shopping.” Indoors at the Lincoln Baths or outside in the lovely High Rock Park, this lively community venue is a great place to meet up with friends, connect with your community, and enjoy entertainment and family-friendly events. From chef demonstrations to live music, there’s always something fun happening at the market! In addition to fine foods, gorgeous garden additions, and many gift items, the market regularly features musicians and community tables from 2014 | WELCOME HOME

local non-profit organizations. Start with a little something to eat or drink, meander through the tables and displays from local farms and vendors, listen to the music for a while, and gather up farm-fresh, wholesome ingredients for your homecooked meals and entertaining. Don’t like to cook? No problem! Check out all the vendors selling ready-to-eat specialties, from hot breakfast sandwiches, fresh-pressed juice, and burritos to “take home, eat later” items such as quiche, pierogies, and eggplant parmesan. Add some salad greens, a loaf of bread, and fresh pie or cookies, and “Dinner is served!” For more information, visit www.saratogafarmersmarket. org and sign up for its e-newsletter, or follow the market on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram. And, every week, read an article about the market and get a new recipe in Saratoga Today on the food page. Malta Farmers’ Market Managed by Saratoga Farmers’ Market Association, the Malta Farmers’ Market is open every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., from the beginning of June through the end of October. The market sets up in the Allerdice ACE Hardware parking lot, at 2570 Route 9, just south of the Malta Community Center. Roughly one dozen local farms and food producers come to sell a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, along with other goodies and prepared foods. Follow the Malta Farmers’ Market on Facebook or get information at www.maltafarmersmarket.org. Clifton Park Farmers’ Market From early July through the end of October, every Thursday afternoon from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., an array of farm-fresh products and gourmet prepared food is available at the Clifton Park Farmers’ Market, set up in the parking lot of St. George’s Church at 912 Route 146, one mile west of I-87 Exit 9. Near extensive shopping, local schools, and the public library, this market is an easy stop to pick up locally grown food and homemade specialties. Follow the Clifton Park Farmers’ Market on Facebook or get information at www. cliftonparkfarmersmarket.org. Ballston Spa Farmers’ Market Located at Wiswall Park at the corner of Front St & Low Street, every Thursday and Saturday beginning June 12th and ending October 18th. We have added an additional 3 weeks to the end of the season to accommodate for late season produce. The hours are Thursday 3 to 6 and Saturday 9 to 12.

During the summer, children get all the benefits of our A+ Program, but on a grander scale. We offer seven weeks of full day camps (As well as Winter and Spring Break) and have no minimum or maximum number of days per week or number of weeks that a student can attend. Each week of camp, we have a curriculum of character education lessons, fun games, a Recreation Room with Ping Pong, Foosball, Air Hockey and more and a one hour martial arts class 4 days a week. We watch a movie in the afternoons twice a week with our high def. projector, have a video game/ recreation morning on Fridays and take all our campers on an educational outing on Wednesdays to local museums and a fun and exciting outing every Friday. We also try to find time every couple of weeks to go swimming at the State Park. Our average camp size is 25-40 students, and we have three full time staff working with our campers. Our goal is to provide a family-friendly and fun environment that feels like a home away from home. Our students have fun learning skills that can be used every day of their lives, and we try to provide memories that will last a lifetime. For many, our summer camps are a wonderful introduction to the martial arts.

CUTTING EDGE MATRIAL ARTS • SARATOGA, NY

Cutting Edge Martial Art’s A+ After School and Summer Camp Program is a year-round child care solution that provides a positive, structured environment for children after school and during the day in the summer. During the school year, we pick children up directly from the local elementary and middle schools with our 30 passenger bus and 15 passenger van. We provide an hour lesson each day that starts with our “Mat Chat,” a ten minute character education lesson, followed by a full 50 minute martial arts class. Once our warm-ups and stretching are completed, we split our class into 2 rooms, based on age and rank, so that students get a more individualized lesson. Once class ends at 5:00 pm, parents have a 30-40 minute window to pick up their children while children have the opportunity after class to get their homework started.

Batcheller was brilliant, born to an upper middle class family, and obviously politically connected. It was in his selection of a wife where he truly excelled. In 1861, Batcheller married Catharine, an educated, sophisticated woman who would support his career at a time when it was difficult for a woman to have a career of her own.

Although the dining room can easily seat twenty, when the Batchellers were in residence, they had a round table with four seats.

Catherine was only 16 when her mother became an invalid. She immediately stepped in, taking over as her father’s hostess. At the time, her father was the Superintendent of the New York State Banking Department. Before she was 20, she hosted senators, governors, generals, and presidential candidates. While George was raised in a financially comfortable family, Catharine’s family was wealthy. Catharine attended the Albany Female Academy, which would later become the

Albany Academy for Girls, where she won an award for her language skills (French.) While in Egypt, Catharine and George hosted a reception in honor of former President Grant. Catharine, who was fluent in several languages, introduced Grant to everyone in their native languages. Catherineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diplomatic skills were so respected that in 1903, the Khedive of Egypt hosted a reception in her honor. After she returned home, she suffered heart issues and died ten days later. The family took a year to have the grand mausoleum designed and built in Greenridge Cemetery. It was built to resemble those in Egypt.

The Batchellers had three children. The oldest daughter, Anna, lived less than two months, a son, James, lived six months, and the youngest daughter, Katherine (Kate)would eventually own the house.

After her father’s death in 1908, Kate returned to Saratoga. Having lived abroad for almost half her life, Kate had a beautiful house, but not a home. In 1910, Josephine Amelia La Saux, of Paris, became her companion. They would remain together for the rest of Kate’s life. In 1916, Kate sold the house that had cost her parents over $65,000 to build to a member of the Mabee family for under $17,000. After the Mabee family sold the house in the 1930s, it started a downward cycle, eventually being abandoned in the 1960s.

Rescued from the wrecking ball in the 1970s, the house was one of the first of Saratoga’s great mansions to be restored. In each of the Batchellers’ wills there is a codicil that states if the family still owned the house when the last descendent died, the house was to be

left to the city and set up as the Batcheller Memorial. Since the book on the family came out in 2009, there have been numerous opportunities for people to enjoy the house. It appears the family’s wish has come true; the house now stands as a memorial to the Batchellers and their era. In addition to the house, the family left behind a plethora of information to serve historians. In various archives are some of George’s Civil War letters, written from the battlefield, Catharine’s school diary from saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com

1852, Kate’s diary begun in 1891 when they were bound for Portugal, two memoriam calling cards and a day book. Most of these have been transcribed and are free to the public at http://www.batchellerpapers.com. There are 30 letters from George to Catherine that were written during their engagement. These letters are housed in the archives of the Saratoga Historical Museum and open a window to George’s emotional side. In one letter George learned that because of conversations Catharine had with her friends, she wanted to end their relationship. In desperation he wrote back “I did not think when I kissed and bid your darling image adieu for the day, that the mails would bring such terrible agony.” Heartbroken, he fought on “but as God as my judge whatever I have done has been prompted by my purist love for you in my own soul.” He closed, accepting his fate, with “if I should not see you again know that I love you with all my heart and soul.”

about them but rarely how they felt on issues. There is one quote by George that explains his emotional introversion: “I have always believed that we are better alone unless with those without whom we cannot be ourselves.” (The man was a poet!) Interesting facts about the Batchellers and their mansion: The house would belong to all three of the Batchellers; it was in Catherine’s name until her death in 1903, George’s until he died in 1908, then it became Kate’s. Most people who pass the house never notice that not one porch has steps. Everyone who joined the Batchellers on

their porch had to pass through the formal parlor. When the house was completed it had five bathrooms at a time when most homes had none. When Catharine was returning from meeting with the Queen of Portugal in 1891, the axle on her carriage broke and she was hospitalized in critical condition. She would eventually recover enough to return to the United States that summer; however, when it was time for George to return to Lisbon in the fall of 1891 she elected to stay in Washington D.C. An 1891 portrait of Catharine still hangs over the desk of the head of Girls Academy.
