SARATOGA SPRINGS – What does it mean to fly the American flag outside your home or business? It seems no matter where you go in the Spa City; you’re bound to see “Old Glory” waving in the breeze. Whether it’s simply out of respect for one’s country or to honor a loved one serving in the military, it is about as inoffensive a symbol as one could expect to find while out in public.
SOUTH GLENS FALLS – “You have cancer.”
Those words came at Joy Clark and her world went numb. She could still see the doctor and she could still hear her best friend and daughter asking questions, but she felt as though she was totally inside of herself – separated from the real world and the surreal.
The Malta Town Board’s meeting room was packed with citizens November 5, as dozens showed up for both the celebration of Ernest Kunz’s 100th birthday and for the public hearing on the two percent tax cap in Malta.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – The images are striking. Young men and women, many in uniform, others in t-shirts and fatigues, still others in every day clothes pose for the camera – fleeting moments in time captured on silver emulsion for eternity. Some have gentle smiles, others grins that stretch wide, and still others, a somber, melancholy look. But in each, it is their eyes that catch you – a quietness that belies the experiences they must have endured.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Though split 3-2 along party lines, the Saratoga Springs City Council voted to approve the $39.7 million budget for 2013 during their October 5 meeting. The meeting was held a day earlier than normal to prevent the regularly scheduled meeting from interfering with coverage of the local and national elections.
SARATOGA SPRINGS - Bicycles are a common symbol of childhood: Most everyone has owned a bike as a child, or taken turns with their friends riding a bike down their neighborhood street. Learning to ride a bike for the first time can be a child’s first rite of passage into independence. But what about children with limited mobility, who can’t ride a normal bicycle the way other kids can? Don’t they deserve a chance at independence, too?
I don’t even know where to begin. Election results, Veterans Day, Super Storms…so much to talk about and so little time.
SANTA ANITA - Many horses racing this weekend made a big impression at the Spa this past summer and Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita is no exception.
Only in the first and second grades, Carlie and Noah Friedman have already read more books than most adults.
SARATOGA SPRINGS - As winter draws near, residents are starting to pile up the wood stocks in their yards, dust out the old fireplace, and give their heating systems a few trial runs. The cold weather usually means it’s time to get out the candy canes, blankets, and roast marshmallows in front of the fireplace for some cozy family time in the living room. But winter also means higher heating bills and fuel costs, and for those with lower incomes, the cold weather just means there are more bills to pay.
