Agree with JIMOCONNOR. Many interesting points raised by the author of this article, Rebecca Isenhart. Among them, recognizing the 'medical arms race' between Albany Med, St Peter's and Ellis. The competitive quest for income and market share by these not-for-profits is disconcerting.

Just to clarify the headline, policyholders will not save on their premiums.
Instead, premiums will rise about 7.1-9.8% in 2016, per the article. This is less of an increase than health insurance companies wanted, that's all.
Consumers can plan on paying more for their 2016 health plans, not less.

For most people a simple graphic of a sun or a cloud with raindrops is enough to know whether to carry an umbrella or not. As a daily Vespa commuter between Schenectady and Albany, knowing how to read a weather map and a radar image is pretty essential. But I've been interested in weather science and prediction ever since the tv meteorologist Bob Kent (I think that was his name) drew weather maps on a chalk board in the Boston area circa 1950s - 1960s. Thanks for your intelligent and interesting blog!

City Councilman Vince Riggi said it best, "Everything seems to be for development and not what’s good for the area,” he said. “Right now, how do you put a price tag on what Quest is doing? The lot is worth much more, but it was garbage before and Quest had to deal with it. This is for the community.”
Thank you Quest for the enormous value you add to our community. To the city of Schenectady, please apply some creativity so the garden project can move forward.

The Daily Gazette editorial is asking fair questions - thank you. I look forward to answers from the authorities (and views of witnesses and others involved). Keep up the good work Gazette.

I just viewed the videos showing the 3 police and 1 citizen.
Since when are people arrested for jaywalking or not consenting to a search?
Police: You tasered someone point-blank when they were passive and DOWN on the ground?
And the Schenectady police chief says this action and the pepper spray were justified?
I am frightened.
