Lost Diamond Found by TSA Officers at Albany International Airport

One Wish For The Capital Region, What Would It Be?

I'm not much of a traveler and I'm not too familiar with everything that the Capital Region has to offer just yet. I love it here and I don't have too many complaints, but there's got to be something we need desperately.

Could We Break a Weather Record High Today in Albany?

I am pretty shocked that it is currently 66* degrees outside right now, according to weather.com. I wasn't expecting it. I didn't see it coming. Neither did that darn groundhog a couple weeks ago (what shadow?)

Albany 7th Grader Competing In International Chess Championship

I'll start this by saying, I wasn't the best student.

History wasn't my thing. I failed math...twice. I don't even know if I've ever watched anyone play chess, let alone know how to play it.

What I'm trying to say is, I'm incredibly jealous of Martha Samadashvili, a 12-year old girl from Albany who is literally representing the entire country right now in this international chess championship.
