Here's a news story I wrote for The Ballston Journal about Paul Sausville, a recently retired longtime public official in the Saratoga County town of Malta, and how he thinks the town has handled development pressure. The photo shows Sausville, left, with fellow Rotary volunteers working on a project to install three benches on the Zim Smith Trail, on April 30, 2016.
Tulip Fest is next weekend, but today (Friday) Moses was already presiding over an impressive array of the flowers in Washington Park. We stopped by on our way to a concert at the Albany Institute of History and Art, one of a number of free events being put on this season by Opera Saratoga. They will, for example, be back in in Albany on June 4 at Capital Rep, performing scenes from operatic fairy tales.
Meanwhile, on Sunday May 1, the wife and I are planning to attend the Albany History Fair, which this year "will focus on Albany's agricultural and gardening past." This event,too, is free of charge, and will be held from noon to 4 at Historic Cherry Hill.
I think this will be my fourth gig on the Albany AM talk radio station. I get scheduled unpredictably when Jim Franco needs to fill a hole, and go with the flow, trying to bloviate entertainingly without saying anything too outrageous (since I'm not Teflon Donald Trump).
