ALTAMONT — The popular Italian restaurant Mio Vino at 186 Main Street in Altamont has been closed

GUILDERLAND — Forty years ago, Harold “Bud” Kenyon said, he caught a student — “a peeping tom,” he called him — looking into the girls’ locker room. A popular and successful varsity football coach, Kenyon took the boy to the high school principal’s office.

That incident came back to haunt Kenyon this week as the Guilderland School Board decided, once and for all, not to name the high school football field for Kenyon as originally planned.

Excess space can be a matter of definition, the school board learned on Tuesday night.
