GUILDERLAND — In the last six years, everyone in her family, save herself, has been diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, yet wife and mother Lori Rodino has remained hopeful, thanks in large part to help from the community.

 In the Division II Championship game last month in Philadelphia, Aaron Cahill and Danny Santandrea were teammates for LeMoyne College, and they went up against Eugene Sellie, who will be a senior at Mercyhurst College next fall. All three played lacrosse for Guilderland.


Stephen A. Venear was born Athanasium Frank Venearski, on Feb. 2, 1887 in Chemerootza, Russia and arrived in America in 1908, at the Port of New York, on the ship Statendam out of Rotterdam, Holland. He was 21 years old and already a trained nurse.

As villagers mourned the loss of Altamont’s landmark garage this week, speculation was rampant about the cause of the June 5 fire that gutted the long-time repair shop.

The McKownville Reservoir Park will loose land to new parking lot.
