We're All Wrong About How "Schalmont" Got Its Name
The most random thing happened today and I'm sitting here shocked and stunned.   I stumbled upon the Schalmont Central School District facebook page and they offered a brief, very simple explanation of how and why the school is called Schalmont. And it's not what I, or many of us…
C’mon PETA, You Can’t Fire Phil
If PETA gets their way, the famous groundhog that helps us determine how much Winter is left would be be replaced by artificial intelligence.  What?! I don't know about you, but I have a mini obsession with Punxsutawney Phil .  He's fat and feisty and furry and every year when th…
Mass Police Arrest Repeat Parking Lot Pooper
They say "when you gotta go, you gotta go" and we've all been there before.  When nature calls and you're not going to make it home, you just hope that the gas station or pizza shop bathroom has been cleaned out in the past few weeks.  A parking lot, for me anyway,  would probably not be m…

It's been chronicled many times on the show that there's a divide in my parents household when it comes to politics. While Chrissy and I and the rest of the morning show playfully allows for each side to demonstrate their love (or disdain) for their political allegiance, a rather bizarre dream by Ma…
Kristi From The TU 'Amazed' By Deborah Reading
We love our weekly segment (Thursdays at 7:05) with Kristi Gustafson Barlette from the Times Union.  She's feisty, opinionated, always a good sport and best of all, super skeptical.  We thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if we had Intuitive Medium Deborah do a re…

Tipsy Tug O' War In Broadalbin Takes Intoxicated Twist
While the story of the drunken parking lot tug-of-war in Broadalbin was a bit of a head scratcher to begin with, the tale took an intoxicated twist when a woman showed up - highly inebriated herself - attempting to pick up one of the men charged.
