Capital Region-Gas prices once again are fluctuating, but not in favor of the consumer.  The average cost of a gallon of gas here in the Capital Region is now $3.80.  That’s a jump of seven cents in just the past week.  On a national scale, gas prices have gone up to $3.51 recently which is a 12-cent increase in the last three weeks. 

Warren County– A man in Queensbury has been charged with pouring liquid dish soap into a 4-year old’s mouth and choking a woman until she was unconscious.  24-year old Jason Hopper was arrested by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office after the incidents on Friday.  He has been charged with second-degree strangulation, unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Schenectady– Schenectady County has reached a tentative deal with the Greater Capital Region Building and Construction Trades Council for construction of a new Glendale Nursing Home.  The deal would save a projected $738,000.  The pre-bid agreement would also ensure at least 80% of the constructions workers on the project are local.  The County Legislature will have to vote on the agreement Tuesday.

Sand Lake– An early morning fire on Sunday damaged a 19th-century home in Sand Lake.  A total of nine fire companies responded to 2867 Route 43 around 4:10am.  The three-story home was burned to the ground, but firefighters were able to limit damage to the house next door.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Sports– A Pennsylvania judge is expected to rule today on whether former Penn State assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky, will have his house arrest conditions modified.  Sandusky has been under house arrest since December when the sexual abuse charges were uncovered.  The modifications to his situation would allow him to visit with his grandchildren while he awaits trial.
