C-GCC Hosting Walk to End Alzheimers October 16th


The Alzheimer’s Association, Northeastern New York chapter is hosting its 2021 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Columbia Greene on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Columbia-Greene Community College. Participants may check in beginning at 8 a.m. with an opening ceremony at 9 a.m. The walk starts at 9:30 a.m.
On Walk Day, participants honor those affected by Alzheimer’s with a poignant Promise Garden Ceremony – a mission-focused experience that signifies our solidarity in the fight against the disease. The colors of the Promise Garden flowers represent people’s connection to Alzheimer’s – their personal reasons to end the disease.
“We are so excited to be back in person this fall, so we can bring together the individuals, families and companies who make Walk to End Alzheimer’s possible,” said Alzheimer’s Association, Northeastern New York Walk Manager Joseph Heaney. “Our committee and staff are working hard to create an experience that is meaningful, inspiring and safe for all individuals to participate.” 
More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including 410,000 New Yorkers. It’s not only a leading cause of death in the U.S., more than 11 million family members and friends provide care to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The goal for this year’s Columbia Greene walk is to raise $27,000.
Plans are currently moving forward to host the Columbia Greene walk in person. The health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers remain the top priorities as decisions are made about event details. The Columbia Greene Walk will implement safety protocols including physical distancing, masks (where required), contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations and more. Options will be offered to participate online and in local neighborhoods.
To register as an individual walker or team captain and to receive the latest updates, visit alz.org/walk.


As Walk Manager Joe Heaney told us, "We like to affectionately call the Walk to End Alzheimer's "the world's largest support group," as it brings together so many families impacted by this disease. Currently, in the United States, more than 6 million people, including 410,000 New Yorkers, are living with Alzheimer's and over 11 million individuals are serving as unpaid caregivers. As the prevalence of this disease continues to grow, the cost of care is escalating into the hundreds of billions. Alzheimer's is devastating our families, our finances and our future and it's time to end it. The money we raise at Walk helps the Alzheimer's Association lead the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. So far, we've raised nearly $20,000 and are moving closer to our goal of $27,000.

Perhaps what is most moving about our walk is our Promise Garden Ceremony. Our Walk is full of flowers, each one representing our connection to Alzheimer's - our reason to end this disease. For example, yellow represents those who are caring for a loved one with dementia, like Rebecca Gordon, who was our yellow flower holder last year. Rebecca moved from the west coast with her dog, Sweet Jane, when she suspected her dad had Alzheimer's. She has found solace in attending our support groups. Purple flowers represent those who have lost a loved one to Alzheimer's, like Marlene Merchant, who lost her mom, Josephine Barkman, last year. Marlene is grateful for the Walk to End Alzheimer's to help bring awareness to this disease and provide families with support. During the ceremony, we ask participants to hold their flowers high and I can tell you that looking out and seeing a crowd of flowers is extremely emotional. It shows that this is not just an individual disease, or even a family disease, this is a community disease and we all must come together to help end it.

We are taking many precautions at our event, as we take the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and participants very seriously. We will encourage participants to maintain a physical distance of six feet wherever possible and will have several hand-sanitizing stations. In addition, we will have purple masks available at our registration table. However, should someone want to participate in our walk but not feel comfortable doing so in a large group, there is the option to walk from home in your own neighborhood."

C-GCC Honors Four Construction Technology – Historic Preservation Graduates

Written By Editor on 10/8/21 | 10/8/21

Four graduates of Columbia-Greene Community College’s Construction Technology – Historic Preservation certificate program have been lauded by C-GCC, as well as leaders in the area business community, for completion with distinction and fulfillment of all requirements. 

Samantha Weber of Catskill, David Krein of Germantown, Austin VanWagner of Germantown, and Elisha Clause of Catskill each completed internships with local employers, and participated in a final, on-campus internship session in September as part of their course study. 

According to Kelly Ann Radzik, C-GCC’s director of Career Success and Experiential Learning, each student prepared portfolios that highlighted their projects and made updates to their resumes.

“After a short coaching session with Construction Tech Lab technician Johnny Moree and Director of Building and Grounds Alison Murphy, the interns were ready to gain even more practice with our team of local professionals,” Radzik said, noting that the students were not given the parameters of the exercise until moments before it started.

"Each student was provided with three opportunities to present themselves and their work in the best possible light, highlighting their professional strengths,” she explained. “The three teams of mentors provided instant feedback on both the student work and presentation skills.

“This exercise simulated the realities of the industry, where construction professionals need to be prepared to showcase their work at any time, not just during pre-scheduled interviews and consultations."

Mentors included John Ingalls, president of GNH Lumber, with locations in Greenville, Windham, and Latham; Jock Winch, Owner of Claverack Builders in Ghent, which also served as an internship host site; Nicole Hanaburgh, vice president, Steve & Weber Plumbing of Germantown – also an internship host site; program Advisory Board Member Paul Fischer, Plant Manager, UFP Industries of Hudson, and Rob Davis, store manager of lumber, millwork, and building supply company Herrington's in Chatham.

DEC Announces Oct. 16 Opening of State's New Catch-and-Release Season in Trout Streams

New Season Expands Opportunities for Trout Stream Fishing Year-Round

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos today reminded anglers that the State's new catch-and-release trout stream season begins on Oct. 16, expanding recreational opportunities.

"Using science, research, and public input, DEC is increasing fishing opportunities while advancing responsible trout management in order to ensure trout reach their fullest ecological and recreational potential," Commissioner Seggos said. "New York State's new catch-and-release season in trout streams expands opportunities for anglers so they can enjoy the State's trout stream fishing resources year-round."

The new catch-and-release trout stream season is a product of DEC's Statewide Trout Stream Management Plan, developed to improve and modernize the State's management of its trout stream fishing resources. The new season, which runs from Oct. 1 - March 31, requires anglers to use only artificial lures and immediately release trout they catch. The catch-and-release season applies to trout streams only. Fishing for trout in lakes and ponds is prohibited after Oct. 15, unless these waters are managed under a special regulation that allows for angling. Anglers should consult DEC's regulations guide for regulations associated with lakes and ponds that harbor trout before fishing.

This time period was traditionally closed to trout stream fishing as a precautionary measure during the reproductive period for wild trout. DEC biologists concluded that fishing during the spawning season will not result in negative fishery impacts. To provide due diligence, DEC will conduct an Angler Use and Wild Trout Young-of-Year Recruitment Study (PDF) to gauge angling pressure and young-of-year trout abundance on a statewide sample of 19 wild trout stream reaches from 2021-2024. DEC biologists will use the results of the study to evaluate the new regulation and guide future management. Anglers are reminded to use best practices when releasing fish to ensure trout are returned to the stream immediately and unharmed. Visit DEC's website for more information on catching and releasing fish.

Anglers venturing to inland trout streams this fall should check out the DEC's Interactive Trout Stream Fishing Map on the DECinfo Locator. The map provides anglers with a one-stop-shop for information about stocking, fishing access, season dates, and regulations. DEC encourages anglers to use this resource before hitting the water, so they are aware of all the trout stream fishing opportunities available to them both locally and afar.

For more information on freshwater fishing in New York waters, go to DEC's Freshwater Fishing Regulations Guide. Anglers interested in receiving information about fishing and fisheries management in New York can subscribe to the Fishing Line Newsletter.

SUNY COBLESKILL MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY RANKED EIGHTH IN USTACCA NCAA DIVISION III NIAGARA REGIONAL POLL

For the first time in program history since their move to the NCAA level of competition in 2008, the SUNY Cobleskill men’s cross country team has broken into the Top 10 of an NCAA Regional Poll. This week the Fighting Tigers are currently ranked eighth overall in the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association NCAA Division III Niagara Region Poll for the week ending October 3, 2021. 

After posting invitational victories at: the 2021 SUNY Poly Short Course Invitational, their own 2021 Steven A. Warde Invitational and the 2021 Wildcat Invitational, the Fighting Tigers had a strong showing against an impressive inter-regional field on Saturday, including five national ranked and 16 regionally ranked programs from six different states, posting a score of 334 points to finish ninth overall in a field of 35 teams at the 40th Annual Mike Woods Invitational hosted SUNY Geneseo at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, N.Y. 

With the program ranked regionally for the first time in its NCAA history head coach Mitchell Tomaszkiewicz spoke about the team’s ranking and what it means moving forward. 

“I think this speaks volumes about the work ethic and commitment that the young men and women in our program have put forward over the summer and the season to date,” said Tomaszkiewicz. “This ranking represents a milestone in the history of our program at the NCAA level of competition and is something our team members can be proud of. However, rankings happen on-line and in print rather than on the grass, mud and hard pack. While they’re fun for our fans and alumni, the goal is not to simply be ranked but to contend for conference titles and successful regional championship showings. This is nice but there is still much work to do and bigger goals to aspire to this season.”  

The Fighting Tigers success this season has been driven by a strong core group of runners comprised of: freshman Eamonn Sullivan, Wappingers Falls, N.Y., Fordham Preparatory School, who has been named the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Runner-of-the-Week twice and Rookie-of-the-Week four times this year to date, senior Dillon VanDeMortel, Newark, N.Y., Newark High School, sophomore Nick Logan, Queensbury, N.Y., Queensbury High School,  senior Jared Craw, Colonie, N.Y., Colonie High School/Hudson Valley Community College,  freshman Shane Viscosi, Fultonville, N.Y., Fonda-Fultonville High School, senior Tucker Skowyra, Hardwick, Mass., Quabbin Regional High School, junior Chris Bruen, Jefferson Valley, N.Y., Lakeland High School, and senior Nick Merando, Cortlandt Manor, N.Y., Walter Panas High School.  

Cobleskill will return to action on Saturday October 9 when they travel to Milton, N.Y. for the 13th Annual MSMC Knight Invite hosted by Mount Saint Mary College at the Hudson Valley Sports Dome in Milton, N.Y. beginning at 11:00 p.m.

With the score tied at 1-1 with only two seconds remaining in regulation a Fighting Tiger corner kick off the right foot of junior midfielder Ben Kessler, East Northport, N.Y., St. Anthony’s High School, found high leaping sophomore midfielder Cater Ciavardoni, Latham, N.Y., Shaker High School, in the box who redirected the ball via a header weakside into the Hornets net with 0.6 seconds remaining to give the Orange & Black the victory.  

The goal capped an otherwise frustrating offensive outing for the Fighting Tigers who had dominated the action throughout the contest outshooting the visitors by a 43-8 margin while holding an 11-4 advantage in corner kicks.   

Cobleskill drew first blood when junior midfielder Jeremy Rossi, Westport, N.Y., Westport High School, headed in a deflected ball in the 22nd minute to stake the home team to a 1-0 which held up until the 36th minute of play when Hornet first-year forward Nick Trapp, Carmel, N.Y., Our Lady of Lourdes High School, intercepted a pass and scored to tie the contest.  

From there the game remained tied until Kessler and Ciavardoni’s last second heroics.  

The Fighting Tigers will next be in action on Wednesday September 29 when they travel to Saratoga Springs, N.Y. to face the Thoroughbreds of Skidmore College with kick-off at 7:00 p.m.
