An anonymous seller has great, “behind the dugout” seats for the Tri-City ValleyCats Saturday, July 4, 6:30 p.m. game against the Lowell Spinners. The Independence Day game ends with a spectacular fireworks display and normally is sold out. (The section where these seats are located already is.)

Five (5) Premium Box tickets are available:
Section 130, Row E — Seats 14, 15 & 16
Section 130, Row G — Seats 15 & 16
The tickets are $9 each and can be purchased separately.
(These were $10.75 each advance purchase and would be $12 each on game day if they weren’t already sold out.)

Aside from great baseball and awesome fireworks, there will be special entertainment throughout the game as the ValleyCats celebrate America’s birthday!

If interested, please contact Debby Gardner at d.gardner@hvcc.edu or 629-8071. Don’t delay; these will go fast!

Roberto (Robi for short) is a 7-year-old, male yellow tiger cat who needs a new home.

When his soul mate died about seven months ago, Robi started meowing and scratching himself. He is a “special needs” kitty as the vet diagnosed him with PTS (post traumatic stress). He now wears a collar to help with the PTS and scratching himself, and his hair has grown back. He still meows a lot and may need another cat companion, plus someone to give him plenty of love and attention. He is very affectionate and good with children.

Robi’s mainly an inside cat, but loves to go for walks and car rides. (When going to the vet, he only needs his harness and leash.) He is neutered and up to date on this shots.

If you can help, please reply to b.cootware@hvcc.edu.

I have two items for sale.

The first is a Sony A6000 camera with 16-50mm lens. I purchased it from Best Buy about a month and a half ago, and it has only about 500 shots on it. It is in excellent condition, as you would expect.

Currently, it is on sale for $699 at BB (regular price is $799). I am selling this one for $499. It comes with all of the original accessories, battery, and box and literature.

I bought this as a backup camera for my main camera, and have since run into some vet bills that I need to pay more than I need the camera, so my loss is your gain….




The laptop is a Samsung model 300U1a  (http://www.pcworld.com/product/1303215/samsung-300u1a-notebook.html). It’s a Windows 7, Core i3 processor, 11.6″ laptop, and it also comes with a full copy of Office Home and Student 2010. It’s been very lightly used, and has the original box, recovery disc, instruction manuals, Office serial number, and adapter. It’s tiny and really light, and a great little computer. It does not have a built in DVD drive (as you would expect on something this small), so you would need an external if you want to use discs to load programs. Other than that, it’s a very complete, very capable computer in a very small package.

I am selling it for $199; it was $699 new at Staples when I got it. (I actually need a larger screen at this point, since my middle-aged eyesight makes it just a bit hard to see for me now, so I am moving to a 15.6″ model instead.)

If you are interested in either item, please e-mail me at  j.wolkenstein@hvcc.edu and I’ll bring whichever item you want to see in for you to check out in person.

If you have visiting family or friends that you need to accommodate this summer, my home will be available from June 23 – July 28.

I live in Troy in the Emma Willard School area. The house easily can accommodate two couples or a family of four to five. It is very spacious, with front and back porch, and a backyard for grilling, basketball and an inflatable pool for cooling off. (There’s also central air, but it’s not needed often as it’s nice and breezy with the windows open.)

For friends or family of the Hudson Valley Community College community only, a special rate of $100 to $200/per night is offered depending upon the number of occupants and length of stay.

Please contact me at s.millerdouzal@hvcc.edu if you’re interested or need more information.

My grandson, David Wingate, is participating in a dual meet tournament at Albany Academy on May 23  in honor of a deceased wrestler, Sol Jochnowitz-Kahn, and is looking for contributions.

Sol died of Leukemia in the fall of 2006 shortly after graduation from high school. He was a member of the host team, The New York Titan Westling Club, of which David is a member.

The tournament is called “The Match Against Leukemia” and all proceeds from the tournament will be given to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of New York.

David will have seven matches during the tournament. Please help in defeating leukemia by contributing. This is a match none of us can afford to lose, so he promises to give his best and hopefully you will too.

David says “Thanks in advance for your support!”
