Finding a replacement for Kaloyeros, pedestrian killed in Latham, Long stands behind Trump, controversy over Saratoga's Code Blue location

SUNY Poly without Kaloyeros
Finding a replacement for Alain Kaloyeros could prove challenging because of SUNY Poly's dual role as an academic institution and an integral part of New York's economic development efforts, but SUNY Poly officials say Alain Kaloyeros's replacement is expected to be more focused on running SUNY Poly and less focused on development.

Your "Pedestrian killed" item needs correction. There was a fatal accident on Alternate Route 7, as the story you linked to describes, but there was no pedestrian involved. Unfortunately, there was also a fatal accident last night on Rte 9 in Latham that did involve a pedestrian: http://news10.com/2016/10/12/pedestrian-killed-on-rt-9-in-latham-tuesday-night/

Corrected. Thanks.

And let's call it a "crash" rather than an "accident" too!

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
