Man shot and killed in Troy, Raucci report leaked, the next Troy police chief, early tick season

Troy police say a man was shot and killed at the Corliss Park Apartments yesterday. They say the suspect is still on the loose. For a while yesterday afternoon police thought the suspect was in an apartment at the complex and the department's Emergency Response Team was called to surround the building. It turned out the only person inside was an elderly woman who police say is the suspect's grandmother. [Troy Record] [TU] [Fox23] [YNN] [WTEN] [WNYT]

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
