Man fatally shot by police in Rotterdam, presidential candidates all over the area today, Troy parking ticket amnesty program

Man fatally shot by police in Rotterdam
Rotterdam police say 30-year-old William Clark was fatally shot by a town police officer Sunday morning. RPD says officers responding to the house on Roberta Road (map) arrived to find the man armed with knife, and it says Clark slashed one of the officers, causing a non-life threatening injury -- the officer then shot Clark. Schenectady County DA Robert Carney says office is currently handling the case as if it will ultimately be his office's case -- not the state attorney general's office -- because the initial investigation indicates Clark was armed.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
