MALTA - It would seem that everyone in Saratoga County is aware of the population and economic growth that has spawned from the creation of GlobalFoundries in 2009. But how are these changes affecting the once quiet town of Malta? The differences in the community are being seen everywhere: Hospitals, fire departments and many local businesses are expanding and adding new locations while fresh businesses and restaurants continue popping into town, bringing a newly diverse population to the fastest growing county in the state—and all of this growth isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Saratoga Springs is steeped in history, rich with memories of a bygone era when gamblers spilled into the Spa City to visit the historic race course and casinos, where men of considerable sway and power came to launch political careers in a town brimming with money and influence. Long before the sidewalk cafés and quaint mom-and-pop shops that line Broadway today, before the grand hotels were torn down and fires decimated and destroyed large swaths of downtown, Saratoga was a power unto itself in Upstate New York, a destination location that drew visitors from all across the country. While the race course, casinos and hotels did their fair share to attract visitors, conventions and special events held at the old Convention Hall overlooking Congress Park helped make Saratoga attractive to visitors year-round, and remained a huge asset to the city until it burnt down in 1965.

SARATOGA SPRINGS – On a crisp, autumn morning surrounded by the meticulously-groomed landscaping at Saratoga National Golf Club, I watch as Gail Purdy-Brophy warms up on the driving range. She humbly mentions that she normally takes a couple dozen swings for her to warm up, adding that it takes a few more than it used to. You wouldn’t have guessed as much by watching. Each swing was consistent, making solid contact and sending it straight down the range about 200 yards from where we stood.
SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Native American festival returns this year, presented by the Ndakinna Education Center and the festival’s host venue, Saratoga Spa State Park.
