Officials in Troy are  addressing growing concern over what appears to be a spiraling crime rate.

Shootings - arsons - murders – Troy: Public perception of the Collar City has been tinged by the darkness of crime in recent weeks, despite public meetings and soul-searching in the city of about 50,000. Police Chief Tedesco is reassuring citizens.

Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  That’s the case at Lake George Dinner Theatre where a terrific package of entertainment awaits you.

You might attend a better play than “The Love List” which is playing at the Lake George Dinner Theatre through Oct. 20.  You might also go to a fancy expensive restaurant and have a better meal than is served at the Lake George Holiday Inn Resort that hosts LGDT.
