BERNE — Jayne Fresina of Berne has had a total of 15 historical romance novels published to date, and all of them since 2011. All are available online, and six are available in print.

She has been writing for about a decade, always while holding down other jobs. But in July Fresina, who is a native of York, England, plans to leave the part-time job she has held for 10 years, and begin to write full-time.

This weekend, artists and groups with musical traditions spanning the globe will converge on the fairgrounds in Altamont, for the 35th annual Old Songs Festival.

The noisy display of hardened, antique machines will go on this weekend, at the 106 Murphy Road in Schoharie.

Rosemary Centi has worked as Guilderland's town clerk and David Cardona has been a village trustee and a chief court clerk.
