The virus is indiscriminately killing people, particularly the old and vulnerable. And yet, isolated as we now must be, people are sharing and helping others.


“Are we going to put life on hold?” asks Guilderland Supervisor Peter Barber.

NEW SCOTLAND — As Jeanne Picard Fish remains in a Valatie nursing home, several offers have been made for her property, once a popular community gathering place, Picard’s Grove, at the foot of the Helderberg escarpment.


Karen Ziegler, the director of the county’s Victim and Sexual Violence Center, tells people who may be suffering abuse as they are isolated in their households, “We want you to know we are available for you 24/7.” The center’s hotline phone number is 518-447-7716. 


The Helderberg Ambulance Squad has enlisted volunteers and is asking for more to help sew gowns to be worn by squad members as they work in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The gowns will be waterproof and washable, meaning they can be reused. “ ... We didn’t ever wear gowns that often so we didn’t have enough [when the virus hit],” Mildred Zuk, an emergency medical technician, told The Enterprise. 


Seven Guilderland athletes held their own on Saturday as they competed with the best track-and-field athletes across New York State in the state championships at the Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex on Staten Island.
