GUILDERLAND — Four Guilderland High School juniors, all males, were arrested Thursday by Guilderland Police on misdemeanor charges under a 2010 Albany County law making cyberbullying a crime.

“It’s a meditation on the power of friendship," says Altamont's librarian about Breadcrumbs, one of the books recommended for winter reading.

In close votes on Oct. 14, a $17.3 million project to update Guilderland’s seven school buildings passed while an $846,300 plan to renovate the high school auditorium and better light the football field was defeated.

What the high school principal described as "raunchy sexual comments" in a rap posted to YouTube has led to the suspension of four male students; police are deciding whether they will be arrested under a county cyberbullying law, currently being challenged in the state's top court.

A nursery-school teacher, a mechanic, a chef, a student, a plumber, a bus driver all set aside their real-life roles to bring Charles Dickens's Christmas Carol to life on stage.

 A student who killed his mother in 2001 planned to attack the high school, the cop now stationed at the school told the board last week during a presentation on safety. This was the first public mention of such an attack, surprising the board president.

The Guilderland school district will get a check as part of settlement money for several states paid by a Long Island tech company for double billing for software maintenance.

High school students explore reality as they perform in a Lucille Fletcher thriller.

Stoic men, many of them soldiers, silently wept when a father spoke of his son being killed in action. He wept, too, and said later that the contribution to the Wounded Warriors Program hit home.

Sixteen months ago, a speeding driver in Altamont turned out to have illegal drugs and $4,000 cash in his car. The Voorheesville man was coming from music festival Camp Bisco, police said.
