IDA clinches deal ~for Daisytek project


By JOSEPH A. PHILLIPS ,, ___ "0~-

Bethlehem's Industrial Development Agency (IDA) approved tax incentives for Selkirk Ventures LLC and Daisytek International, prospective tenant for a warehouse in Selkirk.

The deal followed a public

of six new regional distribution hubs Daisytek will open in the next year and a half, according to recruiting manager Robert Buck. It will install $7 million in new equipment and open for business by August.

That urgency, Buck said, reflects a sudden change in the company's business model. hearing last

Thursday and a weekend of negotiations with

• Galesi Group, Selkirk Ventures' corporate parent.

This shows that we can provide attractive incentives to-developers, yet still not give away the store.

Until now, Daisytek relied upon a single shipping hub in Memphis utilizing Federal Express, dependent upon shipping by air.

The payment in lieu of taxe·s (PILOT)

, agreement approved Monday clears the way for Selkirk Ventures to close this week on the purchase-from a Japanese investor group of the 34-acre parcel at

~ 158 West Yard Road. Galesi, one of the largest local

developers of industrial property, will ~ renovate a 350,000 square foot

warehouse there into a regional distribution center for Daisytek, which

• will sign a 10-year lease, with five-year renewal options.

The Texas-based firm, with $1.2 • billion in sales last year, is a wholesaler

of office, computer, copier and fax products and services.

The warehouse, once occupied by James River Paper Company, will be one

Michael Tucker "Sept. 11 prompted Daisytek to change our business

philosophy," he said, adopting a more regionalized, ground-based model.

Buck projected Daisytek will hire 300 new management and warehouse employees at the Selkirk facility within five years, most to be recruited locally -jobs, he stressed, that will pay starting salaries of $9.50 to $12 an hour and up, with "all the benefits a major publicly­traded company would offer."

Daisytek will receive "a very aggressive incentive package put together by New York state as well as the. Albany County Partnership," said Galesi general manager David Buicko: $500,000 in job-development assistance through the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC), and a $50,000 grant through the Partnership, a joint economic-development venture of the county and the Albany-Colonie Chamber of Commerce. ·

Luring Daisytek upstate, said ESDC's Ray Gillen,"was a very competitive fight because it's a high-tech, growing company."

Bethlehem's planning board was scheduled to continue its discussion of a proposed regional operation center in Selkirk for Waste Management of Eastern New York at its regular meeting last night, May 7.

But the town zoning board of appeals could soon be called upon to take a position on the project as well.

In a memorandum to planning board counsel Keith Silliman dated April 29, town building inspector Kevin Shea responded to a March request by Silliman, for his analysis of whether the Waste Management proposal was a permitted usc for the 144 acre site on River Road, with his interpretation and decision that it is under the existing town zoning code.

But Marcus Poirier, a Selkirk resident who leads the citizens' group that opposes the project -Bethlehem Residents Environ­mentally Against Trash Hauling (BREATH) - and Marc Gerst­man, an attorney representing the group, both vowed to appeal Shea's decision to the zoning board. BREATH met Monday night to consider that appeal and to discuss other possible action to halt the Waste Management proposal in the meantime.

At issue is whether the pro­posed facility·- a two-story, 28,000-square foot administrative and truck service building, and a separate 5,000 square foot maintenance building for metal disposal containers to be stored on the site - is an accepted use in an area designated "Rural District-not zoned."

The zoning code lists some 32 uses for such a site that require site plan approval from the planning board - including administrative and professional offices, which, Shea ·wrote, applies to the larger of the two proposed buildings. But unlike other zoning designations, the rural district heading offers no list of accepted uses. The question put to Shea: did the lack of such a list mean any and all uses are permitted in a "not zoned" area­or only those 32 prospective uses requiring site plan approval?

In his memo, Shea said that single-family homes are not included in that list - but that many exist "of right" in the town's rural districts. He also pointed out the town's building inspectors' long history of permitting "of right" commercial and industrial uses in Selkirk's. rural zones, including the Teppco cargo terminal, a railroad contractor, the state Thruway Authority's vehicle maintenance facility and others, from septic services to garages.

''We had a larger turnout last year because we didn't do it the year before, because it was rained out,'' said McMillen.

Two separate skill courses will be laid out in the parking lot, essentially the same course but one scaled for younger children. The skill course is designed to test a rider's balance, turning and circling skills and traffic safety practices - including hand signals, fast becoming a lost art

of the rural unzoned areas have been vocal opponents of zoning.

Citing several other sections of the code, including one specifying that "Nothing herein contained

shall affect the Rural Districts ... until such time as portions of the Rural Districts may be otherwise classified," Shea said that while the administrative building re­quired site plan approval;whiCh Waste Management has already sought, "no planning board approval or other board approval is necessary" for the smaller building.

But by labelling his memo an· "Interpretation/Decision," Shea hinted at a route for opponents to appeal· his conclusions. The zoning code empowers the zoning board to hear appeals of the building inspector's decisions.

BREATH's leaders vowed to pursue that course.

"Obviously, we do not agree with the building inspector's opinion," said Poirier last week. "We disagree w'ith his entire memo from beginning to end. Our next step is to go -~-? .. the zoning board of appeals."

"If it's not listed, it's ·not an approved use," he added;__ while calling Shea's observations that single-family homes as missing from any such list and comparing that to Waste Management's proposal "ludicrous. They're comparing apples and oranges. TI1ere is no zone in town where single family homes aren't appropriate."

"Certainly, we need to appeal this to the zoning board of appeals," said Gerstman. "It is, I think, a distortion of the zoning code. If the building department has interpreted the zoning code to the detriment ofthe community in the past, this is no reason to not stop them now," he added.

"Many of the grounds we put in (earlier) letters to the planning board are still applicable, and nothing the building inspector has said changes our position," he said.

' In a letter to Silliman on March 19, Gerstman wrote, "The words 'not zoned' in the title of the rural districts classification are not controlling. It would be anom­alous to prescribe uses for which an approval via site plan review is required and, somehow, auth­orize other more invasive and incompatible uses to proceed without such review. The uses set forth are the exclusive uses for the Rural District-not zoned."

No appeal of Shea's findings has yet been filed with the zoning board. The zoning code requires such an appeal within 30 days. But Poirier distributed copies of Shea's memo to BREATH members for discussion at Monday's meeting ...

He also said the group planned to discuss mounting a petition drive to halt the project "until we get a determination on this issue. I think maybe a moratorium of some kind would be a start. Our intent would be to prevent construction of the type Waste Management has described."

Waste Management topped last night's planning board agenda, with the board likely to discuss Shea's conclusions and possibly begin environmental

. review of the project. Poirier pledged that his group would be . out "in force" at the session to keep up the pressure on the board to deny the project.

Motherhood's a long and winding journey By KATHERINE McCARTHY

Periodically, a spotlight gets shone on motherhood, and all sorts of analysis ensues. Currently, that bright light has been turned on Karen Hughes, President Bush's director of communications, who cited home•ickness and the iieed for family time as her reasons for leaving one of our nation's most highly visible jobs.


ftt,om's tire

t()ord of Massachusetts, a position she's filled since her predecessor became ambassador to Canada.

Swift's position drew attention before she even took over as governor, as her attempts at having it all drew criticism when

babysitters and emergency flights home on the state chopper seemed to come at taxpayers' expense. When she became the first governor to give birth - to twins, no less - while in office, motherhood took center stage.

These two women have raised the question of whether women really can have it all. The bigger question, really, is what "all" is. Sometimes it seems like mother­hood is the smallest part of that "all."

Once, in the early months after my first son was born, a single friend was perplexed at my life. "Do you just sit around and read, and eat bon-bons all day?" she asked, her attempts at joking revealing the truth ofherthought. To tell the truth, I couldn't really tell her what I did all day, just knew that it took all day to do it

Twelve years later, the days still fly by, and when I tumble into bed at night, it feels like I was in constant motion all day, with nothing to show for it.

Closer to home, Jane Swift decided not to run for governor We all complain about being

stressed out, but, really, our society admires it. The mom who shows up at a soccer game in a business suit gets lots more admiration than the one who arrives in jeans and a sweatshirt, after being home all day. Sometimes, it feels like there's a belief that the woman who stays home is either married to a fabulously wealthy man and can afford to drive her SUV to the day spa after putting the kids on the bus, or she's self-indulgent.

My mother and grandmother always worked - more because they had to than wanted to, but out the door they went.

Attorney John Cahill, of Cahill and Messina in Slingerlands, notified Supervisor Sheila Fuller in a letter May 2 that Klersy had formed a limited liability company, to be called 467 Delaware Avenue LLC, with himself as principal partner. The new entity will take ownership of the parcel at that address, rezoned in 1998 as Planned Commercial District No. 5 .

Preliminary plans for the revised version of the project, labelled Delmar Place Assisted Living and prepared by architect James Tobin of Slingerlands and ABD Engineers on Schenectady, were delivered to the town Planning Department on Friday.

Pamper your mother Mother's presence· is best present Don't forget mom this Sunday. It's Mother's Day, her

official day, a day when she deseiVes to be pampered. Flowers and candy are always appreciated, but recog­

nizing her specialness is probably a gift she'll treasure for a long time after the flowers wilt and the candy is gone.

Moms, both working and stay:at-homes, give 100 per­cent all year long, making sure that the family always co~es_firstAndoften. the Editorials famliy)usttakes her efforts . for granted.

Think about what most mothers do in today's world. Shop, do most of the errands, chauffeur the kids to a host of activities and appointments, cook, clean, do laundry. And for many mothers, all of this is accomplished in addition to a full or part-time job.

So, give mom a treat on Sunday - breakfast in bed, Jurich or dinner at her favorite restaurant or even just keeping.the house tidy for her. Whatever the day brings, make sure she knows how much she is appreciated.

Hope for the best Daisytek International and the town IDA have ham­

mered out a PILOT (Payment in Ueu ofT axes) agreement in record time for the company that will operate a large warehouse facility in Selkirk.

The town and the IDA are hoping that this agreement will seiVe as a catalyst to help dispel the notion that Bethlehem is not very business-friendly. The town, in fact, has been trying without much success to bring in new business for at least the past several years.

In essence, what the IDA hopes is that other prospec­tive businesses will look at Daisytek and say 'Gee, maybe it's no tall thattough to get a business going in Bethlehem.'

We sincerely hope the IDA is correct, since the tax base without solid business taxpayers shifts the burden to residential taxpayers and makes Bethlehem off limits to people with lower incomes.

What's troublesome about the Daisytek agreement is that the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk school district will take a hit of sorts with this PILOT, since the property involved is already on the tax rolls. RCS voters twice defeated the school budget last year and will!ikdy be suspect of what the:.: may perceive as unnecessary increases this year.

In the meantime, let's hope the town and the IDA are right and more prospective business owners find Bethlehem to their liking.


The writer is a freelance author living in Delmar.

This year, I bought my mother a mop for Valentine's Day. Not just any mop, but an "As Seen· on 1V" mop with a removable end that's machine washable ·(and refillable). I even threw in an extra refill.

So now that Mother's Day is coming up, I'm thinking, how can I top the mop?

Not with a set of colorful seashell-shaped soaps and .a loofah. The last set I gave her 10 years ago remains unopened, collecting dust in my old bedroom at my parents' house. I guess my mother feels either ''those little soaps are too pretty to use" or "how can a person wash with a piece of soap the size of a quarter?"

The great thing about the mop. is that I knew she wanted one. I'm not saying she got choked up over the mop, but it was an unexpected present and she wasn't likely to get around to buying one since she already owned a functioning mop. And really, the mop was just an "I heard you mention this, so I picked one up for you" gift. !just happened to give it to her on Feb. 14.

Still, I have to admit that I have no clue as to what kind of gift would really wow my mother. This is one of the many ways in which we are alike. We are both impossible to buy for and somewhat reluctantto splurge on items that aren't "practical."

Fun gifts are things you want, but don't necessarily need. It's also neat (and usually rare) when someone knows exactly what you desire without being told or when you are surprised with a gift you love but would never have thought to ask for.

Four years ago, I very much wanted a necklace with a "birthstone kid" charm, to proudly display my status as the mom of a daughter born in July.

Muriel Shrager with her daughter Robin.

Point of View Any time I saw a woman

wearing such a necklace, which was quite often, I would point and exclaim (hint, hint) "Oh, look at that necklace, isn't that cute?" or 'That's really neat, they come girl­shaped and boy-shaped."

My husband would reply, "Huh? Oh, yeah. Right Cute."

On Mother's Day that year, my husband presented me with a 20-by-24 poster of our beautiful daughter, made from a photograph I had taken a few months prior. Rachel is beaming in the photograph. It shows her at 20-months, a red barrette holding her sparse hair straight off the top of her head, twinkling eyes and a bubbly grin spilling from the full lips she inherited from me.

"Wow! It's, urn, larger than life," I said, realizing that there was no second small box with the costume-jewelry birthstone charm.

Don't get me wrong. I love the print. It's still hanging in our family room, shocking visitors to this day. And I most certainly was surprised. Best of all, the poster provides a lasting presence of a very precious moment in our daughter's toddlerhood. (I fmally got the charm two years later).

I don't know if my mother still gives my father hints about gift ideas, but I've never heard any from her. As a result, I tend to go the homemade, heart-felt route.

A few years ago on her 'birthday, I sent her a long list of my favorite "memories, expressions and pieces of adviCe." They were in no particular order, but most of the items were from my childhood years: Compiling a list of hom*onyms together (I kept the paper near my bed, and we'd add new words each night, like "there, their, they're")Dunking Social Tea cookies in her coffee (I often didn't dunk fast enough, and the cookie would end up as mush in the cup). The way .she carved my initial in a newly­opened jar. of Skippy peanut butter. The way she dissolved orange baby aspirin on a teaspoon

for me, mixing with her pinky, The time a· goat chewed on her coat belt at the petting zoo in Colonie Center.

The list also included items which represent the ways we are alike: We both like to sleep curled. up in a ball, and we both start to snort when we laugh too hard.

I think about the traditions am continuing and the list my daughter might one day make for me. She could take items rli'r ·prlclvl from the list I made for mother. Being called my "•"oPe•tiP.

pie-patootie," enjoying a snack peanut butter on toast (cut quarters) and playing Eights. (Rachel would also add new item: "I like when my 'gives me a back rub").

I am grateful to be ~h,-r;olhPrll by my own daughter, and I that the love my own mc•th<~~ showered on me growing up to this day) is the foundation my parenting skills.

There are nights when I trying not to nod off while reacling my wide-eyed daughter more story." On those oc<casion,sl I recall my mother sitting on edge of my childhood bed. She wearing a light-blue · and she is leaning on one resting her head in her hand, struggling to stay awake stalled and stretched out bedtime routine. Only now truly understand how tired felt. Only now do I appreciate all her efforts.

Of course, there are times m! mother irritates me (and vic! versa), and Rachel and! also ha~ our "you're bugging me moments. What clos relationship doesn't?

More often, I think about th times when, even as an adult wit a child of my own, I long to bern mother's baby. And really, as I te my daughter, we are always 01 mother's babies, even when we'1 grown. A long, tight, loving hu from your mom is wonderful any age ..

This Mother's Day, mayl Rachel and I will start our ov hom*onym list (first on the lio "presents·and presence"). I dm know if my mother is secret hoping for jewelry, but forme,~ presence of my mother will I present enough.

~~~~~~~.---The evolution of this year's school district budget Editor, The Spotlight:

On May 21, voters across the state will have the opportunity to vote on their school district's budget.

This is one of the major responsibilities· of your elected school board. There is no other group of elected representatives whose budget must be approved by voters. Developing a budget is a continuous process - as soon as one budget is completed, it is time to think about the next year with its. special challenges.

We thought you might like to take a closer look at how Bethlehem's school board developed this year's $52.8 million budget.

The philosophy that the Bethlehem board has followed since we have been on the board is to offer programs that will maximize students' academic

achievement and development, This is the beginning of the presentsrecommendationstothe while at the same time keeping annuallong-rangeplanningwork board of education for new the school tax increase at a done by our superintendent, Dr. courses it would like to offer.

and tax revenues. The budget season officially

begins in February with the presentation of the FOB and the list of priorities to the board and the public.

We are a responsive board, as we should be since we represent the community, and it is import­ant for us to hear from those we represent.

As we are unable to fund all of the requests, we must decide what will become ·par't of the budget and what will not make this year's cut. We know from the outset that we will not please everyone.

How will we ever decide what to fund and what programs will have the greatest impact on our students? During budget season, we hold weekly board meetings. Each Friday, we receive a packet of information that requires many hours to read.

The budget meetings are divided into designated topics, with presentations made to the board and the public. Tentative decisions will be made, or more information may be requested and consideration of that request will be postponed.

We are required to adopt a budget at least 24 days before the state mandated budget vote on M'ay 21. There is no leeway in meeting this deadline.

As we work through the topics,




we are updated with more current figures_. We are mindful a:t all < -<

times of what the budget-to­budget increase is and what the increase to the taxpayer will be.

We vote with our conscience and try to weigh all of the options presented to us. We know we can't have it all and work very hard to balance all needs. The process does work well, and we were able to adopt this year's budget of $52.8 million (approximately 4.4 percent tax increase) by March 20.

Some of what we added includes additional teacher staffing at all levels, support staff in some areas, increased substitute pay, partial funding of hockey and freshman football, equipment for programs, and computers for student technology courses and staff needs.

Most imPortant, exercise your right to vote on May 21 at the middle school from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

from sales taxes on its new­equipment purchases. It also approved a 15-year PILOT agreement with Selkirk Ventures, including sales and mortgage­recording tax breaks and a schedule of payments amounting to an average 42 percent discount on its property tax bill. ·

Superintendent Robert Drake said. "We do support efforts to bring in industrial development, but at the same time, we want to stop you from being too generous."

And Delmar resident Bob Jasinski said, "I understand you've got to offer them something. I just caution you oh what you offer. Let's bring it down to a realistic dollar figure on

they've committed to, and these are good quality jobs," said Gillen - and the state grant, still under negotiation, will include "recapture" provisions ifDaisytek doesn't meet its job-creation projections over the next five years.

The IDA's PILOT agreement, commencing in July 2003 and running through 2018, includes a

similar proviso, and a

based on an estimated valuation slightly lower than the property's current $6.3 million assessment.

Overall, the total estimated property tax break over the life of the agreement amounts to less than $480,000 from the coffers of the town and school district, about $160,000 less than the company sought.

Children's school to host open house

Bethlehem Children's School is hosting an open house on Wednesday, May 22, from 6. to 8:30 p.m. at the school on 12 Fisher Blvd. in Slingerlands.

The school's Ocean Exhibits will be on display at the open house.

In addition, there will be refreshments and an ocean­related craft for children. All are welcome.

The IDA board· unanimously approved both agreements, though town board member Dan Plummer abstained from Daisytek's sales-tax resolution, citing his law firm's dealings with GE Capital, which will finance the equipment purchases. He hailed the agreements as "fantastic" and Daisytek as "a real asset to this community."

"Our goal was to let the state take the lead, and to get the school district as close to (the standard PILOT numbers) as we could," said Tucker. "Tbe board felt that it should not provide a benefit greater than was provided through the state's grant."

. Selkirk Ventures and Daisytek also agreed to seek Empire Zone designation for the site if it proves advantageous - and even committed to discouraging its estimated 20 truck deliveries a_ day from using Route 396 in Selkirk.

For information, call the school at 478-0224.

"I think this is an important project," said IDA Chairman Michael Tucker. "It's an important example of how, when a developer comes to us with a project and a potenti3! tenant and needs to move quickly, three months later we are able to put the pieces in place to get it done." He hoped the agreement will help dispel the town's image as a difficult place to do business.

"This shows that we can provide attractive incentives to ·developers, yet still not give away the store," he said.

The final PILOT agreement was more limited than what Selkirk Ventures sought at the public hearing - cumulative property-tax discounts of 54 percent over the life of the PILOT. IDA board members, representatives of the Ravena-

~ Coeymans-Selkirk school district, which will bear the brunt of tax revenue reductions, and several residents opposed that.

"For the school district, the question of tax breaks for Daisytek can't be taken in isolation" from its impact on the district's finances, RCS

present own-ership and the difficulty in attracting a tenant without incentives. "One, it is not a custom building. Two, people can't get through the maze of buying it," he said - negotiating with overseas owners now in receivership.

He stressed the job creation and spinoffbenefitsofthe project. The site could be expanded by another 100,000 square feet- an improvement not covered by the PILOT agreement- Qiid-Galesi, developer of complexes like Guilderland's Northeast Industrial Park, is already eying an adjacent 16-acre vacant site for development. "This is one community where as of now we don't have any operations," he said-but that will likely change, he said, after a successful Daisytek project.

County and state officials weighed in in favor of an aggressive PILOT.

Robert Drake also softens the blow to the RCS district with four years

of fixed payments roughly double what Galesi proposed to pay -and more than the IDA's standard PILOT.

Tucker urged Daisytek to adopt a good-neighbor relationship with the district similar to those other Selkirk industrial firms have established.

The special taxing jurisdictions . in which the project is located­the Selkirk Fire and Bethlehem Ambulance districts, and the Bethlehem Water District- will be unaffected by the deal, and Selkirk Partners agreed not to challenge its property tax assessment until at least 2007.

Resumption of a public hearing on a proposal by Tower Ventures to erect a 170-foot tele­communications tower on Upper Font Grove Road has been postponed for a second time by New Scotland's zoning board of appeals.

The hearing, launched in February,· was scheduled to be reopened at the board's April 23 meeting. But the board postponed the matter until its next scheduled session, on May 28 at the Wyman. Osterhout Community Center in New Salem, at the request of representatives of Clifton Park­based Tower Ventures.

They sought the one-month

continuance prior to the April meeting in order to buy additional time to prepare documentation requested in March by the zoning board, including visual simu­lations of the tower based on the results of a balloon test conducted last month.

While the hearing was postponed, there was movement on the review of the tower project reported at the April meeting. Counsel Louis Neri reported to the board that the Albany County Planning Commission had responded to the board's declaration of its intent to serve jointly with the town planning board as lead agencies for environmental review of the project.

Neri said the county planning

body had no objection to the joint lead agency declaration, but requested that appropriate regulatory bodies in Guilderland and Bethlehem be notified of the Tower Ventures application, should they wish to intervene with respect to the environmental review. "

At the recommendation of chairman Ronald Von Ronne, the zoning board deferred until the May 28 meeting entering a letter received from attorney Marc Gerstman, on behalf of. the Northeast New Scotland Neighborhood Association, into the hearing record. Gerstman and co-counsel Kathleen Martens have raised a number of issues about Tower Ventures application on the association's behalf at the

zoning b_oard's February and March meetings, and the Jetter contained various citations of related case law.

. The board also conducted a hearing on an application ofDavid Wajda of 310 New Salem Road, seeking a variance to permit construction of a porch at his residence. With no public comment received at the hearing, the board granted the application.

The board also unanimously granted the request of Michael]. Marinello of300 Font Grove Road to rescind an earlier variance granted him last November, permitting construction of a third dwelling on his property - a project rendered moot by the death of a family member.

Gordinier also reported to the board that a variance, granted a year ago to Marty Flansburg to permit operation of a transmission repair garage and used car display on his property at 1196 Delaware Turnpike in Unionville, had expired. The variance was contingent upon his obtaining site-plan approval from the town planning board, and Gordinier said no application for that had been filed within the 1-year limit sit by the zoning board. He said he would order the immediate halt of business on the property.

Flansburg has since reapplied for the variance, and the planning board was scheduled to review the application on Tuesday, May 7 and prepru;e a recommendation to the zoning board.

Keeping lawns healthy

When properly maintained, a lawn can be vigorous and healthy either without or with very few chemical pesticides. .

Choosing a blend of resistant· varieties of grass can eliminate the possibility of many common lawn diseases and can also repel insects

to 7.0, where plant nutrients in fertilizer will be most effective.

Lawns should be fertilized two or three times a year- if twice a year, in the spring and early fall; if three times a year, in the late spring, early fall and late fall.

Mowing at the proper height and frequency will also make your lawn more pest-resistant. Mowing too short can foster a shallow grass root. system that will make it easier for weeds to germinate and grow. Lawns should be mowed no lower than 2 inches, and never cut more than a third of the grass length. Lawnmower blades should be kept sharp, since dull blades leave wounds on the grass blade that can be an entry point for diseases.

Where allowed by local Jaw, lawns should be watered deeply (about 1 inch of water) when the first sign of wilt appears in the spring. Deep watering encour­ages deeper, healthier roots. In the summer, waterings should be light and frequent ·

The best time to water is in the early morning; evening watering does not allow time for the grass to dry, which creates an environment conducive to disease development.

' Most weeds can be prevented by proper fertilizing, mowing and watering. A balanced fertilizer program and mowing at recommended heights will give lawn grasses a competitive advantage over weeds.

"" joined the group in 1986, and by 1991 had convinced the group to 'try a few dance steps. .

• "When we started dancing, our costumes changed," said Stephanie Bollam, a charter

.. member who has been with the Friendship Singers all 20 years. "At our Christmas concert, we

~ had a mannequin display of our costumes."

Although Liddle and Drew • work together to make

preliminary selections of what songs the group should perform, everyone is in on the final

• decisions. "As director, I just conduct," Liddle said. "Everyone has a say in the music."


"The majority rules," Drew said.

• "We've always worked in a non-confrontational, non-catty way," Bollam said. 'The one time that

, we did have a problem, we had a meeting to work it out," Liddle said.

, "I think it works well because music 'affects you so positively," Welch said. Another positive

• effect of the group has been the supporting role they've played in each other's lives.

• "A lot of us have been .through our children's pre-school years and teen years together," Conklin

• said. "We're all in it together." "We've become very close friends," Welch said. Bollam pointed out that the Friend§hip

' Singers aren't just a group of bored housewives. 'The women in this group are very versatile

.. and active," she said. "Sometimes we're racing to get into our costumes."

One thing they definitely are is committed. The ·Friendship Singers rehearse every Tuesday

.• morning at the Slingerlands church where they got their start from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

"Some of the women have arranged time off from their jobs so they can be at rehearsals,"

·Drew said.

In addition to their spring and winter concerts, the Friendship Singers perform at different venues throughout the year.

They continue to sing at nursing homes, where they first focused their concert efforts. They've performed at all of Bethlehem's grade schools, as well as at Feestelijk, the Tulip Festival, baseball games, and even at a recent WWF event in Albany. They regularly perform at jails and hospitals.

"We try to consider some populations that might be overlooked," said Conklin, who signs all the songs the group perform. "Sometimes we get more out of the performances than the audience does," Bollam said. "We often get very choked up." The group also performs at wedding anniversary celebra­tions, funerals and memorial celebrations.

Every year, the group gets. away for a weekend to Vermont's Queechee Lake, where, not too surprisingly, they often break into song. "One night, we heard applause from across the lake," Conklin said. In addition to singing, dancing and signing, the

Friendship Singers also play hand chimes and a flute. When he's available, Bill Reusswig plays drums for the group.

At Saturday's concert, donations will be accepted, with all proceeds going to the Bethlehem Festival Fund, which discreetly helps out community members in need.

The Friendship Singers welcome new members who must know how to sing, "and not be intimidated by movement," Bollam said. Those interested in

joining the group should call Uddle at 439-2360.

"When I go to: Friendship Singers, I never feel nervousness or intimidation," Bollam said. "It's a comfortable environment." "We know we can ask each other for help," Conklin said. Drew summed up the reason that, 20 years later, the Friendship Singers are still making beautiful music together.

'There's nothing better than singing," the group's pianist said, "unless it's playing."

-; .· Virtually everyone now knows that regular aerobic exercise

is one of the best prescriptions for a long and healthy life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, fewer than one ·quarter of American adults exercise enough to achieve \lealth benefits. The problem is that many people, especially older adults who frequently find their ability to exercise impaired by chronic medical problems, remain sedentary because they mistakenly believe that aerobic exercise requires vigorous activity. In reality, nearly everyone can benefit from a modest amount of aerobic activity. Furthermore, even ordinary daily activities (mowing the lawn, taking the stairs, etc.) can help preserve the function of the heart and lungs, maintain bones, and enhance psychological well-being.

The hardest part of exercise is beginning the habit of exercise. At Good Samaritan Lutheran Health Care Center, 125 Rockefeller Road, Delmar, we encourage those who live with us to find activities consistent with their capacities, because increased use leads to extended use.

The Dutch are coming! The_ Dutch are coming! Albany prepares for 54rh Annual Tulip Festival

~~.,.,···--·~~~~ By KATHE_RINE McCARTHY

M ore than 50 years after the first "Pinksterfest" celebrated Albany's

D11tch heritage, the weekend-long Tulip Festival in Albany's

Washington Park has become a fixture in the Capital District's spring scene.

This year, the Tulip Festival will begin on Friday, May 10, at noon on State Street.

Women from the Albany Historical Society will wear traditional Dutch costumes to the street-scrubbing, and 10 of them will scrub the top block of State Street near St. Peter's Episcopal Church atl.odge Street. To prove that the Tulip Festival celebrates all ·of Albany's heritage, the Albany Police Pipe and Drums will escort

. the scrubbers down the street.

After the street is clean, local dignitaries and the general public will attend the Tulip Queen Luncheon, where reigning queen. Amy Kaplan and the five finalists for this year's crown will be feted. The new Tulip Queen will be crowned on Saturday, May 11, at the amphitheater near the lake in Washington Park.

"The selection committee accepted names for the next Tulip Queen in February and March," Cleary said. "Anyone can nominate a candidate, and there is an _ interview process."

The Tulip Queen works on Albany Mayor Gerald Jennings' literacy campaign; and queens always choose their own focus.

"Amy set up a Pen Pal program between seventh graders at Philip livingston Middle School and sailors on· the nuclear submarine, the U.S.S. Albany," Cleary said. "Some of the crew have come to meet the students, and 12 of them are coming to be part of this year's coronation ceremony."

On Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12, the 170,000 tulips planted in Washington Park will host some 100,000 people.

"The park is 90 acres, and there are four different stages, so it never feels too crowded," Cleary said.

Two of the stages will be devoted to national and local music groups. The Main Stage

In addition to a juried craft show, the MVP Health Care KidZone is offering activities. to keep families

entertained. There will be face painting, balloon sculptures, pony rides, a fire safety bus, and hands-on crafts from local institutions like the Albany Institute of History and Art and the Junior Museum. Mad Science of the Capital Region will offer special presentations at 1, 3 and 5 p.m. on Saturday,

and the Airbourne Jugglers will perform at 2 and 4 p.m. that day.

On Sunday at 1, 3, and 5 p.m., Ernie Williams will present an interactive show called "Blues in Schools." At 2 and 4 p.m., the Castle Bridge Players will perform their marionette show, "George and the Dragon." The MVP tent will be right near the playground in the park.

Money spent on car upkeep likely returned at trade in time ··-In a booming

economy money is spread around that might stay in one's pocket during leaner . times. However, when it comes to paying people to keep your car clean and well maintained it would probably be money well spent, says the Car Care Council.

"At trade in time dealers are willing to

pay extra for .a car that's been kept in good condition," says Donna Wagner, Coun­cil President: "And, like your grade point average in school, you can't make it look good overnight. It's an·

. " ongomg process. Wagner suggests

washing your car at regular intervals and waxing it twice a year. If you opt to do the

work yourself, re­search it first. Do-it­yourselfers who aren't familiar with the products they're using can do more harm than good. By all means, read the · directions and follow them.

chipped or cracked glass, as well. Left unattended, small problems can turn into big ones fairly quickly. 'There's new technol­ogy to treat many of these blemishes," advises Wagner. · "Many times the service personnel are equipped to come right to your home or office." The interior of your vehicle is just as important as the exterior. It's hard to sell a house that looks good outside but whose interior has been ravished. A car is no different. Cigarette burns in the uphol­stery, rips, tears and stains all decrease the value of a vehicle.

"Not only that," emphasizes Wagner, "but it may have a negative psychological effect on the owner, as well. Wf; spend lots of time in that driver's seat; it makes sense that we would feel better if the interior is well kept."

Maintenance is important, too. Car dealers look more favorably on a vehicle with detailed mainte­nance' records. A car without any service history has an un­known value, and the owner is unable to validate any claims of repairs or mainte­nance.

Summer is the perfect time to pay

special attention to your car. Get the exterior cleaned and waxed and take care of any bodywork that needs to be per­formed. Look at the inside with new eyes; start with the floor mats and work up. Finally, check the recommended service schedule and make maintenance a priority.

Keeping a vehicle clean and well main­tained is one of the few responsibilities that provides both immediate gratifica­tion and financial compensation down the road. For more information visit the Council's website at www.carcarecouncil.org.

"I know a great deal about the district and its workings, having served here for over 30 years." Stoker said. School board work is a labor of love for him, "very time consuming, but I hope our efforts will make a difference in young peopl'e' s lives. I have had a good life, and now I am getting a chance to give something back with my community service." He enjoys mission work at his church, particularly where the efforts of

One of his big concerns is crowding in the elementary schools, which will soon be felt in the middle and high school facilities.

"I wantto be part of developing the solutions to the crowding issue. Problems are always cropping up, and our job is to solve them," said Stoker.

Storey served this year as vice president of the board. She is a native· of Summit, N.J., and graduated with a ba_chelor's degree from Bucknell University. She and her husband moved to Bethlehem in 1990.

'Storey's elder son Rob is a senior at Delaware University and her daughter Sarah is a Bethlehem senior. Her younger· son Brian is a student at the middle school.

Storey said volunteering in the wmmunity and school system

has a,lways been important to her. She-has served as a board member of Bethlehem Oppor­tunities Unlimited _and was a former co-presidentofHamagrael Elementary School PTA

As a board member, Storey "is concerned about financing in school districts. One troubling aspect is the unequal distribution of state aid. State aid may repre­sent less than 20 percent of a school district's budget on long Island but be close to 90 percent of a district budget in the north­ern part ofthestate," she said.

"I am concerned about crow­ding in our facilities caused by growth in the district and want to work on solutions to the issue," said Storey.

Bartow said he and his wife have three sons in the Bethlehem School District. Bartow is assistant dean of graduate studies at SUNY Albany.

Bartow feels the current board has done an exceptional job.

"I have no big issues, but want w

to help the district continue its strong educational program" he said. "However, I see fiscal chal- • lenges ahead with uncertainty in state aid, un-funded state man­dates and upcoming contract ne­gotiations. On the revenue side, I ' am concerned about the tax base and want to be part of the district ongoing financial planning.

"There has been a lot of turnover in the district recently and am concerned about , administrative stability. I also am an advocate, to the extent possible, to conduct all business in the public eye. While I understand personnel matters and delicate negotiations need to occur in executive sessions, we ~

need to be mindful of this matter." Bartow was quick to add, "I am not aware of any violations in this • matter."

Greene, a corporate attorney, lives in the district with his wife, Ellen Sax, and two children -one in Clarksville Elementary and one who will be starting school in the near future.

Greene said, "I graduated Syracuse University, attending on an athletic scholarship and captained their wrestling team, then graduated from Fordham ' University Law School.

"My background includes serving in the Peace Corps in Guatemala, counsel to former • Albany County Executive Mike Hob lock, served in a primary role in drafting the Albany County , Charter and credited with engineering the transactions to rescue the Albany County Ice Rink and the AI Tech Trust Fund.

"My community activities have included Little League, soccer _ and Cub Scouts, helping create a wrestling program for Bethlehem youth and serving on the Guil­derland YMCA board of direc­tors," said Greene. Some discoloration may occur which could result in staining of

"It would be easier to run for the school board if I had a highly controversial issue or crisis to address. Fortunately, I do not ·believe we face such an issue or crisis. But that does not mean the district does not face challenges like state mandates and local tax pressures that make the admini­stration of a school district more difficult. Bethlehem is not immune from these pressures. If elected, I will devote all of my efforts to managing day-to-day issues the district will face in the current economic and educa­tional environment.

"Finally, I believe the single most important challenge facing the school board is ensuring the district remains responsive to the individual needs of the parents in the current environment, and I am committed to maintaining the excellence of our schools and listening to the concerns of our parents and taxpayers," Greene said.
