RENSSELAERVILLE — After spending the summer as an Odum intern at the Huyck Preserve in the Helderbergs, Jamaine Hunt is heading home to West Virginia this week feeling raw.

Robert Delaney, who for decades has battled blazes as a volunteer firefighter, is now battling cancer.

Summer Smith, then a 17-year-old Guilderland High School senior, was friends with a classmate who died in a bad car crash. She raised money for a bronze angel statue to stand in Altamont’s village green. “The angel represents people who have lost people,” Summer told us then.

A father with his baby in his lap was arrested on Saturday, July 3, for driving his ATV while drunk, resulting in a felony charge under Leandra's Law.

When you’re a child, people tell you what matters. “When you become older…you need to figure it out for yourself,” said Superintendent Marie Wiles.

Thomas Fisher said he found vast opportunities at Berne-Knox-Westerlo, where he took advanced classes and bonded with teachers.

Andrew Bub, BKW's salutatorian this year, works well under pressure.

The district recommended raising pay as Guilderland has struggled to find enough substitute teachers.

“I feel confident we can construct a new building,” said Guilderland’s supervisor, Kenneth Runion, on Monday.
