GUILDERLAND — Joseph “Big Joe” Timothy Knightes Sr., who loved sports and was dedicated to his family, died on Friday, Dec. 4, 2015. He was 55.

Mr. Knightes was born on Nov. 30, 1960, in Schenectady, son of Donald and Laura Knightes.

He graduated from Guilderland High School.

He said it was the first time he has had an opponent, and the first time anyone running for the position in “recent history” has had an opponent.

GUILDERLAND — A resident living in the neighborhood behind Keenholts’ Park believes Guilderland Babe Ruth has overstepped its bounds in developing the property, but his concerns are largely unfounded.

The school district here is in a "wait-and-see mode" since “things are flying around fast and furious,” according to the curriculum director.

GUILDERLAND — Two people were arrested last Friday after the Guilderland Police Department conducted a series of liquor-license checks.

Seventeen establishments were checked, and two sold alcohol to a 19-year-old minor, according to a release from the police department.

Steve Buck, this week, said the construction company had never declared bankruptcy, but it was “looking to refinance the project.”

“I think the contributions were basically modest, for the most part,” Peter Barber said this week. “Most of mine were individuals who had no dealings before the zoning board, or any board, as far as I know.”

Herb Frauenberger, a retired New York Police officer now living in Guilderland, was on the scene when the Beatle was shot.

Inclusion won’t be costly next year as the school district takes "baby steps," says Superintendent Marie Wiles.
