French Bulldog/Pug/Gremlin mix,


8 years,

20 lbs.

Magdalina Conchetta Wrinkles, or Maggie to friends and family, packs a lot of personality into her 20 lb frame. Her foster family firmly blames themselves for her occasional possessiveness, they not only fed her after midnight, they got her wet. Maggie is an expert snuggler, and is excellent at camouflaging in a pile of blankets (you learn to watch where you sit!) We are not going to lie, she has a list of health

issues, dry eye has left her blind in one eye with limited vision in the other, and requires daily drops, she has a fused elbow which gives her an adorable skip to her step, back pain and skin issues – but she certainly doesn’t let it get to her and is a wonderful patient. Mags has good house manners, she is not destructive, but she is still working on house training. Because of her vision and orthopedic issues, a house without stairs or an owner who can carry her up and down stairs is required, as is a fenced yard, and she would not do well with young children. She does very well with cats and respectful dogs of all sizes. Magdalina’s perfect day involves lots of time on the couch, a goat horn or bully stick to chew, lots of treats, and lots of love.

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly never met Aimee! Aimee and her sister Sheva were surrendered to one of our partner shelters when their owner could no longer care for them. Aimee was very shy when she arrived, but has blossomed in her foster home where she is adored. She is excellent with all of the dogs in her foster home, though big dogs sometimes intimidate her. Aimee is an extremely easy, quiet house guest who is housebroken and loves to chill near her people. She is fine when left during the day and does not need to be crated.  She loves to go on walks and is great on the leash. Aimee will need a securely fenced yard and a canine companion to boost her confidence. She is timid around men, and she will not be placed with children because of her initial shyness. She has not been tested with cats.  Aimee is a very sweet girl who will make someone a wonderful companion.

Schaticoke Residents Express Concerns Over EMS – by C. Barton

An active public hearing took place in the Town of Schaghticoke on May 28th 2015 at 6:35pm. The public hearing was set for the purposes of “hearing all persons interested regarding the proposed contract with the Clifton Park and Halfmoon Emergency Corps.” This proposed contract would assign the Clifton Park and Halfmoon Emergency Corps as the contracted Emergency Medical Service that will provide emergency response to the Hemstreet Park fire district.” The John Ahearn Rescue Squad, which is no longer in operation, formerly served this district. For approximately a year the Hoosic Valley Rescue Squad has been responding to the area previously covered by John Ahern.

Town to Catch Up on Ambulance Costs – by H. Wessell

TOWN OF STILLWATER, June 18 Supervisor Edward Kinowski on Thursday called the merging of the Stillwater and Malta ambulance/ rescue squads "a very seamless transition, and I really appreciate that. I don't think most people even notice the difference, except they see the word ëMalta' now added to ‘Stillwater,' but that's okay."
But not all that unexpected -- as the late Paul Harvey would say, "the rest of the story" is one of some seams straining.
The Town Board heard the rest from representatives of the Malta Ambulance Service and rescue squad.

Malta Presbyterian Church – by Sandy McBride

When you drive up Route 9 from Clifton Park to Saratoga Springs these days, you can’t miss Malta.  Impressive new buildings crowd the sides of the highways, a plethora of round-abouts keep your attention focused on your driving.  There are huge hotels, shopping areas, office buildings, restaurants, service stations, a Rescue Squad facility and even a medical center that has sprung up in the middle of an open field along the Northway where horses grazed not so many years ago. Seems like everything is new in Malta.  Growth and bustle and change.

It was very different 169 years ago.
