We witnessed democracy in action last Tuesday night at the Guilderland School Board meeting. And it was a glorious sight.

Temporary homes were set up in Tawasentha Park in Guilderland, fulfilling pledges to help Habitat for Humanity.

The school board has set aside, for now, school-closure recommendations from a consultant's building capacity report following months of protests from those who want to keep Altamont Elementary School open.

The Tech Valley High School formed seven years ago to focus on project-based learning for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, has a permanent place at the Albany NanoTech Complex.

The same night that he was released, Guilderland Police observed Hawes driving while intoxicated at 1810 Western Ave.
