It was definitely fall football last night with temperatures at some fields in Section 2 dipping into the 40's as the sun fell on Friday evening. 24 teams suited up for 12 games in the Capital Region. There were a number a blowouts, some excitingly close games and some upsets. Something for everyone.
It seems like we may never get a Costco in the Capital Region. The plans have been submitted and construction was supposed to begin but there are a lot of residents and a non-profit that have raised concerns. Just recently there was another meeting, this time in front of an appeals panel.
There have been talks for years about later start times for Capital Region high schoolers and this upcoming school year it's going to happen for a couple of local schools. I think that it's about time. I also think that all schools should allow this to help those teens who need extra sleep to function better.
