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.

I'd combine the apple cider donuts from Golden Harvest Farm with the original tart froyo from Ayelada to create fall's best creation, having a taste of both worlds
