GUILDERLAND — The 9-1-1 call came in from a passenger; the car’s driver was threatening to kill herself, possibly with a gun.

The Voorheesville Board of Education approved a provision to allow the school nurse to administer the drug Naloxone, also known by its brand name Narcan, to students and staff. Naloxone prevents death from an opioid overdose.

A toxicology report has shown no drugs were present in Ross Herzog’s body when he died, at age 30, in August on a woodland path near Altamont.

 The slim 20-year-old from Albany is the accused shooter in the incident that cleared Crossgates Mall Saturday afternoon.

GUILDERLAND — The force’s Lifesaving Award is “not given very often,” said Police Chief Carol Lawlor, but Officer Bob Bailey recently received it — for the second time.

The proposed plan for Guilderland for 2017 is down $43,000 from last year. The tax rate is unchanged from last year.

Guilderland Police responded to Crossgates Mall on Oct. 12 for a report of a shoplifter at the Hollister store, and wound up stopping an assault on four Hollister security officers.

Their landlord says he has “thrown out” the spa business, A&B Western Spa, that did not have all of the proper licensing, as well as two women from China who worked and lived there.

After residents had complained that “illegal business was being conducted” at the spa, it was put under police surveillance.

People charge a Guilderland teen with criminal mischief after they say he blocked a car and then vandalized it, while the female driver sat inside with the engine running.
