GUILDERLAND — Nearly four months after the Bank of America at 1450 Western Ave. was robbed, Ricky W. Hines, 40, of Gloversville, was charged with third-degree robbery.

It was the ninth annual Adoption Day run by The Animal Hospital and Steve Caporizzo — the News 10 ABC weatherman who runs a Pet Connection program — with Healthy Pet Center.

We share his joy and wonder at the turn of events that may save the Doctor Crounse House.
