SARATOGA SPRINGS — Inside the office on a sublevel of the Collamer Building, a pair of couches sit in a comfortable corner. A toy kitchen patiently awaits the attention of a child’s playing hands, and rows of books line the far wall. “We have the easiest door to walk in,” says Maggie Fronk, executive director of the Wellspring office, which opens its doors five days a week and hosts seminars that are confidential and free of charge. A hotline, which…
SCHUYLERVILLE — A new chapter has begun in the story of the Dovegate Inn in Schuylerville. The chef of its attached Kitchen at the Inn restaurant has recently purchased the bed and breakfast and is planning some changes while maintaining the fresh and cheerful décor of the charming getaway. Built in the late 1800’s, it was renovated from a residence into a bed and breakfast 20 years ago by then-owner Ronnie Myers, who has now retired and sold the establishment…
SARATOGA SPRINGS — If all goes as expected, a final vote will take place by the Saratoga Springs City Council on Nov. 15 to approve the contract between the city, Pitney Meadows Community Farm and a third-party enforcer, Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA), for the city to pay $1.16 million to purchase a conservation easement to historic Pitney Farm on West Avenue. “The easement is, in effect, an insurance policy that protects the land,” said city Mayor Joanne Yepsen.

I write this on Wednesday, November 9, the day after a historic election. This week the political landscape changed in America as a complete outsider defeated one of the best funded, most well-established candidates in US history. But this wasn’t the first time we had the pleasure to live through a historic election. Just eight years ago, Barrack Obama became the 44th President of the United States, shattering barriers for African-Americans. If these two elections have taught us one thing,…
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The first time comedian Jodi Weiner considered holding a cancer fundraiser made up of comedic acts was not long after she was diagnosed with esophageal cancer at the Saratoga Hospital’s Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center in 2013. In the midst of her shock and distress, she realized she had just suddenly joined a community of patients and survivors that were some of the kindest and most courageous people she had ever met. She wanted to give back,…
WILTON — The tragic loss of New York State Trooper Timothy Pratt, 55, on Wednesday, October 26, as a result of a traffic accident on Ballard Road in Wilton, has left a gaping hole in the hearts of the Capital Region.

Wilton Town Board Councilman John Lant, a…
Interest in Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL) injuries of the elbow (and the treatment) has increased tremendously over the past decade. The media has helped shed light on this injury and has aided with the diagnosis in younger athletes, particularly with interest in youth baseball continuing to rise. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Tommy John underwent the first ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction (performed by Dr. Frank Jobe) 40 years ago. The procedure has since been named after him. Since then, hundreds of…
On Tuesday, October 18, I presented about upcoming changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) exemptions to Saratoga Chamber members, hosted by Quad Graphics, 1 Marsel Drive, in the Grande Industrial Park, Saratoga Springs. Given the applicability of the rule to the business community, and the questions asked at the presentation, this column is intended to give a brief overview of the rule and upcoming changes. The “default” condition under the FLSA is for employees to be “non-exempt:” for…
