The Friends of Albany History told the story of a fatal encounter involving a group from Fort Orange and the Mohawk in what's now Lincoln Park -- and make an argument for why this bit of history should be commemorated there.

Paul charted the history of Albany's Leland Opera House and its operator, Rosa M. Leland.

Carl recalled the life of Scotia's most famous composer.

Jackie found fall color, fungi, a loon, a merganser, and a snake at Pyramid Lake.

Jen went mountain biking at Kingdom Trails.

Silvia traveled to Newport for a half marathon.

One of the Kristi's readers asked a babysitting pay question that would seem to have a very clear answer.

Jona provided an update on their campaign to pay off debt -- and handle an unexpected roof repair.

Daniel recapped the Schenectady Wing Walk.

Jon shared stories of pizza on the road.

Albany Jane on the indulgence roll and nostalgia: "I think part of living in Albany for a while is fondly remembering restaurants long gone."

Steve opened a call for restaurant suggestions at a spot across from the TU Center.

Otis thought about restaurants that he's come across by accident, and how that's increasingly rare.

And Chuck shared some ideas for how to stay motivated.
