Renowned photojournalist Earl Dotter recently took pictures of refugees at a job-training session in Albany.  Dotter is known for his photos of people in hazardous jobs and environments.

On May 15, the Guilderland zoning board approved a 256-unit senior independent-living proposal that was the catalyst for the birth of a grassroots group urging “responsible development.”

The incident began with a report of a larceny at Burlington Coat Factory in Crossgates Mall.

GUILDERLAND —  Family and educators describe a relatively isolated young woman who struggled with depression, her child with social challenges but no diagnosis of any learning disabilities, and a man who loved them both but was in declining health.

GUILDERLAND — All five of the items on Guilderland’s ballots sailed through on Tuesday, most with a 2-to-1 approval ratio. The school and library budgets, the school and library capital projects, and the bus proposition all passed.

An anonymous flyer was distributed in the days before the October 2018 vote on a proposed school capital project, and the project was defeated by 58 votes. Now a very similar flyer is urging voters to defeat the school and library propositions on Tuesday, May 21.

About 85 people, nearly all from the state of Chuuk in Micronesia, have gathered as they do every Sunday afternoon at the Christ Lutheran Church on Western Avenue for a service in their native Austronesian language of Chuukese.

GUILDERLAND — The town is considering changes to its zoning code, including one that would clarify where senior independent-living facilities can be built. This may stymie the Viscusi Builders’ hope of building a facility at 493 Church Road.

Pyramid’s new proposals related to the apartment complex it hopes to build on Rapp Road include dead-ending Rapp Road to prevent through traffic, and moving the end of Gipp Road.
