State politicians focus on... Oswego, another knifing at UAlbany, the bus to Saratoga is hot, Siena makes a stop in South Dakota

A special election there tomorrow for the 48th State Senate District has political types hopped up because the outcome could go a long way toward determing whether Republicans retain control of the state senate. [NYT]

Schenectady is looking to increase penalties for landlords who keep rental properties vacant. Albany passed a similar ordinance last month. [TU]

The post office in downtown Saratoga Springs, described as a "treasure," will be getting some rehab, including a new skylight. [Saratogian]

The hot way to get to and from Saratoga? The bus. Yeah, CDTA was surprised, too. [TU]

If you can figure out who broke into the home of a Glen's Falls man, he'll give you a Corvette convertible. [Troy Record]

The Siena men's hoops team won its Bracket Busters game at Boise State on Saturday 93-70. The trip home wasn't so easy. The Saints made an unscheduled stop in South Dakota. [TU]

The 11th ranked UAlbany men's lacrosse team lost to No. 1 Johns Hopkins 10-5 Saturday in Baltimore. [TU]
