I disagree with your premise that the current bridge some how has its roots in the bridges which formerly connected Washington Avenue in Schenectady with Washington Ave in Scotia, at the corner with Schonowee Ave.
The resurfacing and restyling of the 2nd Western Gateway bridge does have a wonderful history with the previous concrete masterpiece. The original bridge connecting Route 5 with its dead mans curve. It was the path of many workers starting and finishing their shift at General Electric. This bridge has its own history.
Did you read the document by Union College’s geology department or books by Larry Hart? There is plenty of information about the bridges that connected the two Washington Avenues. The Burr Bridge was only one of the spans. The history behind the bridges connecting the East end of Scotia with the Stockade include the first passenger railroad, a historic covered bridge, a toll bridge and multiple problems caused by ice jams.
The changes to the current bridge have no roots to the 1800's. Congratulations in adding to the dismay of all historians. By documenting the headline in todays paper you've rewritten history and confused future generations.

You have got to be kidding? Is Duanesburg that desperate they're willing to put more lives in danger? Maybe the town board should visit Heather Bynum and her family to see what pain and sorrow this event can bring. How many will die this time.
Shame on you Duanesburg.

"You know, at one time there must've been dozens of companies making buggy whips. And I'll bet the last company around was the one that made the best ... buggy whip you ever saw."
I'm pleased to see someone else with the passion to want the Daily Gazette to survive. For the record I'm not suggesting the Daily Gazette give away any content their reporters work hard to gather and verify. I want a news team that works independently of one group of advertisers. I want a news team that includes a fact checker, a copy of the AP Style guide and has an education in journalism. The staff I know from the Gazette are professional journalists. I certainly don't want to depend on Twitter of Facebook for my news.
The Daily Gazette does not have the audience of the WSJ or NY Times. They will not be able to provide the news I described based on a subscription model. If it was possible I'd say go for it but they can't live in denial like our friends in Rochester did. Sometimes you need to change or you die. I'm not saying a partnership with WRGB is the solution but it can't be business as usual.
I'm also with Dan. I used to work at ABC/Disney and they didn't have a clue what WTEN was doing.

It's too bad they didn't include the Daily Gazette in the shared services agreement. As I recommended many year's ago the only way the Gazette could make it online was to find a partner.
For me it's worth paying for the E-edition of the Daily Gazette. We've been subscribers since day one but we're rare and I know you're losing money. It's annoying that I can't share links to local Gazette stories on Twitter or Facebook (although there are tricks if I really want to)
Maybe you guys need to talk to the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the owners of WRGB.

There's a reason why I don't watch Major League Baseball and why I look forward to the Little League World Series every year. It's called emotion and passion.
I think it's great to see more major leaguers enjoying the game.

Don't do you love how the owner of Rolling Green now tells channel 6 she never ever saw the officer in there before.
