GUILDERLAND — Rhondasia Jackson, 17, stabbed two 15-year-old girls with a knife, police say, after they struggled to get back belongings she had taken from one of them.

The struggle ensued on Saturday, Sept. 29, at about 4:15 p.m. at Crossgates Mall, according to a release from the Guilderland Police.

Firefighters expect to have a definitive cause of the Sept. 8 spa fire within a couple of days.

GUILDERLAND — There is no specific target date yet for the opening of the dual-branded Hilton hotel in front of Crossgates Mall yet, said the hotel’s director of sales, Emily Cuda. “We just say ‘fall,’” she said.

“We’re on the cusp of months, so I don’t want to say one and it be the other,” Cuda said.

Last week, Crossgates Mall held a job fair to start hiring new people for the Crossgates’ new hotel, the dual-branded Tru and Homewood Suites by Hilton, opening this fall.

GUILDERLAND — New, wider, better-marked bicycle lanes along Route 20 from Crossgates Mall to the main entrance to the University at Albany are part of a $730,000 repaving project that started on June 25 and is to be finished in a month.

The idea is to create an environment that will encourage bus riding, walking, and bicycling, said town Supervisor Peter Barber. Most of the properties within the proposed overlay district are owned by Pyramid Management, owner of Crossgates Mall.

Last Saturday morning, the Tri-city Valleycats executives were at Crossgates Mall in Guilderland looking for five people to come sing at Joe Bruno Stadium this summer to sing the National Anthem.
