GUILDERLAND — The state’s Department of Transportation will hold an online public hearing on Thursday, Aug. 6, at 5 p.m. to discuss plans to redesign the intersection of Route 146 (Carman Road) and Lydius Street in Guilderland into a one-lane roundabout.

Jay Tyler, director of Emergency Medical Operations for Guilderland, said that the bridge closure won’t affect response time for ambulance service in the town. “The public shouldn’t fear. We’re able to get to them from either the east or the west,” he said.

BERNE — On the afternoon of Feb. 24, Rensselaerville resident Doug Vogel, owner of Vogel’s Roll Off Services, lost control of his 1994 International Harvester garbage truck on Saw Mill Road in Berne and flipped the vehicle over as he tried to regain control, according to a press release from the Albany County Sheriff’s office. 

The idea behind the film, said director Dmitry Gelfand, is love. “Love conquers all, love conquers racism, love conquers depression, love conquers death.” 

“It was freakin’ scary, really scary,” said the witness to a hit-and-run accident on Route 155. “I lived in California for 10 years and I’ve never seen anyone drive so aggressively.  They knocked this person onto the shoulder.”

An elderly woman crossed over the double yellow line on Route 155 Sunday, causing a two-car crash that sent both her and the other driver to Albany Med. The other driver was Joseph Cotazino, 61, a well-known figure in Voorheesville, who is the leader of the Orchard Park Neighborhood Association, which is very active in local charity work. Gladys Chamberlain, 78, also of Voorheesville, may have had a medical event before crashing head-on into Cotazino's vehicle, say officials from the sheriff's office. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
