Domestic fares at Albany are up 27 percent since 2008, and the number of passengers has fallen; many airlines have merged since the days Senator Schumer helped bring Southwest to the region. He believes now is the time to bring a new airline into the Albany mix.  "We're hoping that if Jet Blue were to come to Albany, they could add service to already popular routes. Routes like Washington, Orlando, South Florida or Tampa, and in doing so, connecting residents to more travel destinations."

Michael Meeropol: Pete Seeger Was Great Because Of Not In Spite Of His Politics

Like many in the Hudson Valley, I took the loss of Pete Seeger personally.  He was a great national and international figure having received over 20 honors and awards including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award, the Harvard Arts Medal, the Kennedy Center Honor and been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.   For us who lived in and near Beacon, NY where he had lived for 65 years, he was a local hero.  The sloop Clearwater and the attention it brought to the Hudson River actually led to an actual clean-up of terrible pollution.  Now, the river can be fished and it’s safe for swimming.

Next-Act of Colonie's Dan Moran sees the numbers reflecting continued strength and employer confidence.    “ We had a couple of good weeks of run-up. We had kind of a flat week, now we're coming back up a little higher again. It's showing a new confidence in the employment market, and that's a good thing.”
