  • Adirondack Gateway Council CEO Ed Bartholomew talks to members of the Warrensburg economic development committee this summer about approaches to building commerce and building a local sustainable economy.

    Lake George Wastewater Treatment Plant supervisor Tim Shudt explains the steps of processing sewage during a 2012 tour of the facility. Monday, the village board enacted a moratorium on sewer hookups for commercial and multi-family developments while local officials pursue plans for a major renovation or replacement of the treatment plant.

  • During the 2013 edition of the World’s Largest Garage Sale, bargain-hunters walk up Main St. in Warrensburg. The sale offers virtually everything from dollar-store items, tools and household goods to valuable antiques and rare collectibles. This year’s great sale, officially to be held Saturday Oct. 3 through Sunday Oct. 4, is to offer train rides for visitors seeking to avoid the traffic and parking woes — as well as the ‘Family Fun Zone’ which features free entertainment and activities for those weary of shopping.

  • This three-bedroom ranch home assessed at $121,600, was among 65 or so properties sold at a previous tax-sale auction.

  • Bob Roberts of Queensbury talks to Warren County supervisors July 28 about his late daughter’s service to area communities — and to the nation — as a paramedic. Listening (rear) are Queensbury at-large Supervisor Mark Westcott and Roberts’ wife Cindy. The Roberts couple’s request to have a local pedestrian bridge named in memory of Kristie was endorsed by the supervisors that serve on the county Public Works Committee.

  • One of Warren County’s dozen-plus emergency response vehicles sits outside the county Municipal Center. With the vehicles left outside through the winter, emergency personnel might not be able to respond in a timely manner to a calamity occurring during a major snowstorm, the county Emergency Services Services Director Brian LaFlure warned this week. Also, the equipment, worth over $1 million, is degrading due to its exposure to the weather. LaFlure suggested that a garage be built to house the vehicles and equipment.
