GUILDERLAND — Julie White, a McKownville resident, was killed on July 9 when her car hit a guide rail on Interstate 87 on the Crossgates Mall ramp.

White, 41, was a registered nurse who loved cats and volunteered at animal shelters (see obituary pages.)

Robert Porter, the president of American Bikers Aimed Toward Education’s New York State office, believes the deadly accident is just another reminder that vehicles need to be more aware of motorcycles on the road.

After casting a dire future for the village if the elementary school is closed, Mayor Gaughan said the board may soon investigate costs to create a village seal to place on the broad wall of the community room.

Before the roar that reached the rafters, before the caps of red and white were tossed with abandon and fell to the floor, before the beach balls surfed the crowd — there was Pomp and Circumstance, there were parents taking pictures, there were carefully chosen words spoken from the heart.

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Town Board and the Altamont Village Board of Trustees held a joint public hearing on Tuesday night to discuss annexing more than 50 acres of land from Guilderland to the village.
