GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Historical Society’s 2014 program series begins Thursday, Feb. 20, with “A Visit From Henry Hudson,” a living history portrayal by Norman Bauman, costumes for the part. Bauman will describe “his” sailing career and especially the exploration of the river eventually named in “his” honor.

Last week, I talked about some people who were physically challenged. Little did I know that this week I would be enjoying a ball game with the Wounded Warriors competing against the local All Stars.

To the Editor:

Sochi Russia has nothing on Altamont, N.Y., when it comes to celebrating a very special event.

The Altamont library gala was just that. 

Thank you, so much, to all, for making it happen.

ALTAMONT — James W. Hurley, a World War II veteran with a gentle spirit, died on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, at St. Peter’s Hospital, after a brief illness. He was 91.

Mr. Hurley was born in Willimantic, Conn., the son of the late William T. and Helen (née McCurdie) Hurley.

Legislators listened to teachers, parents, and school leaders with complaints about how new standards will serve students with special needs who are better off with individualized goals.

GUILDERLAND — Leota Mae Zyniecki, known to her friends as Lee, was a pioneer.

She got her driver’s license at age 14 — the last person in Michigan to do so — and got her pilot’s license when she was in her forties.

“She drove with a lead foot,” said her son, Edward Zyniecki III, one of seven siblings.

Citizens need to be informed about a building project before it is finalized so that any concerns may be addressed.
