A quick recap of the week

week review

Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:

+ RPI's Shirley Ann Jackson topped a college president compensation chart.

+ Nicole's vintage coat caught our eye.

+ The "bigger, better" bottle bill took effect.

+ Jess told us about a consignment shop that sounds like a farm stand.

+ Tuesday was Election Day -- here are some highlights from the results.

+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: Joe Bruno, uncomfortable topics, Vegas, weddings, potential, a great meal, sausage, hot dogs, raspberries, fortunes, trick-or-treating, apple cider, Olana and weird fantasies.

+ Dan shared some tips on how to not be inappropriate in the Capital Region.

+ The Latham Chipotle opened.

+ The trailer for the Salt, the Angelina Jolie movie, debuted online -- and Albany makes some recognizable cameos.

+ Kaitlin went shopping at Lucia in Saratoga.

+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: height/weight proportionate guys, ham sandwich personalities, an apparent lush and a big suitcase of wine.

+ We broke down some stimulus funding numbers -- and Saratoga County has gotten the second lowest amount of stimulus funding per capita among New York counties.

+ And we have a winner in the 2009 Tournament of Pizza! Don't miss the post game interview with the judges.
