You Died How?, the first in a series of new tours to be presented by Friends of Oakwood, is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22 at the Oakwood Cemetery. A variety of topics are planned for the new tours that each will explore a different section of the historic cemetery.

This tour, led by historian Kahty Sheehan, shares fascinating stories of how some “residents” at Oakwood departed this life: drowning, consumption, poisoning, childbirth, suicide by beer, gunshot, lost at sea, the list goes on… Don’t miss it!

Please register at 1-800-556-6273 and pay ($15/person) upon arrival. Participants meet at the Gardner Earl Chapel flagpole at the 186 Oakwood Ave. entrance to the cemetery.

The Friends of Oakwood is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the not-for-profit, non-sectarian 19th-Century cemetery and its historic chapel.

My sister adopted a beautiful cat in June, and unfortunately it has turned out that she is extremely allergic. I have been keeping him at my apartment, but my lease does not allow pets. He is a white, neutered male, 2-3 years old, up to date on shots, extremely friendly who   loves to play and cuddle. I hate to have to rehome him, but our situation just doesn’t allow us to keep him right now and I do not want to bring him back to the shelter. I have a new litter box that can go with him, also. If you are interested, please email

Recently, many Troy residents have noticed leaf spots and early defoliation from trees in our region. These symptoms are caused by Tar Spot of Maple (rhytisma), a fungus which affects the leaves of specific species of Maple trees in our city and region. Tar Spot rarely causes lasting damage to the tree, but heavy infections may result in leaves dropping early.

The Mayor’s Office has developed a fact sheet with assistance from the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County which outlines symptoms of the infection and what you can do to combat Tar Spot to prevent additional trees being infected in the future. We encourage you to share this flyer with your friends, family and neighbors.

For more information or additional resources on the Tar Spot of Maple, please contact Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County at (518) 272-4210 or visit

I hate doing this. My niece developed a pretty severe allergy to cats, so I took in their cats — Olaf and Chloe (orange tiger), but it is not working out with my cats at all.

I am completely against bringing them to the shelter, so I want to make sure they are going to good, loving homes. They are such sweethearts! Olaf is very independent and Chloe loves to be with you and is a complete cuddle bug. Olaf is a 2-year-old male and Chloe is an “old lady” at eight years old. They are both fixed, are indoor/outdoor cats and completely litter box trained. They get along with dogs and are very child friendly. They came from a home with a 5- and 3-year-old.

Please contact Jenn Draper at or 629-7633.
