Tragic Events Have A Troy Police Officer In Fear For His Life After A “Routine” Traffic Stop.

This weekend I was reminded as to exactly why I started "Blue Friday" so many years ago. It is a reminder I wish I never had, and my heart goes out to Sergeant French of the Troy Police Department , his family and friends and hope for a full and quick recovery.

It reads like the opening scene in a movie. A routine police stop in an instant becomes a deadly situation, leaving a police officer wounded and a suspect dead. The horrific scene  that happened Sunday morning in Troy is a not so gentile reminder that the dangers that come with being a police officer are very real and potentially only a moment away.

Wanna Fly To Florida For $16.86 Each Way? JetBlue Can Make That Happen (UPDATE)

UPDATE: This post was written earlier today and the "ticket deal" was stated to be good Tomorrow (Tuesday). The original news source that was used to get the information has since changed and updated their information and I have leaned that the deal was indeed for TODAY (Monday) only. While many got the deal , and others who tried did not, as their seemed to be a bit of mass confusion on EVERYONE'S part, I have been informed by JetBlue that the deal is indeed Sold Out as of this moment. 

 

 

Earlier in the year I told you that JetBlue would be coming to Albany and offering low cost flights out of our very own airport. Well, today they announced that they would be starting on December 10, 2015 and flying to both Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale Florida.

(I want to begin this article by stating that this is my own opinion and not necessarily that of WGNA or anyone who works with me. Merely the angry ramblings of Sean McMaster . I do not know the couple in the story or anyone involved with the Cemetary Association)

Cat-Poisoning Halfmoon Man Charged With Harassment

I'm not sure that this guy shouldn't be nominated for Neighbor of the Year.

Listen, I know all too well that sometimes a neighborhood dog or cat can be a nuisance. I get it. But I think the thing that some people forget about a neighborhood is that it is a community. If you wish to be free of neighbors, their children or their pets, don't live in a "neighborhood!"
