Car seat safety at Crossgates

During a July 17 event demonstrating and inspecting car seats at Crossgates Mall, 55 inspections yielded not one correctly installed seat.

Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians from Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Washington, and Rensselaer counties participated in the clinic. At a recent check in Colonie, only one of 91 seats checked was correctly installed. Albany County offers the clinics free of charge. 

At last Wednesday’s event, eight seats were replaced due to age, recall, damage, or being expired.

Kelly's three children, ranging in age from 7 to 13, were in the car at the time of his arrest, according to a Guilderland Police report.

The fire, said the release, grew substantially within minutes, and caused damage to the bathtub and surrounding areas.

Plans are progressing to house outside pre-kindergarten programs in extra rooms at Altamont Elementary, Pine Bush Elementary, and Farnsworth Middle School.
