It has been almost two years since St. Clements Church handed over the reins in the summer of 2011. The transition to new management made things somewhat difficult, said Saratoga Springs Horse Show Corporate Officer and Secretary Lorna Olivo, who has been with the show since 1992. They had to debunk the rumor that the show was no more. “Because we had a lot of volunteers who had been doing this for many, many years, we decided that we could take it on,” Olivo said. “The first year a lot of people were saying the show was over (because See Horse Show pg. 12 Photo courtesy of Sharon Castro I n d e p e n d e n t • F r e e  •  (518) 581-2480 Saratoga Farmers’ Market Open For A New Season Featured Stories Kentucky Derby Brendan O’Meara gives the front runners and post positions for the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby.

The building is proposing a main height of 110 feet with extra rooftop stacks at a height of 125 feet maximum. This Saturday, four red balloons will be placed at or near the four corners of the proposed building and will fly at 125 feet to give residents an idea of how the building will impact the visibility of certain parts of the town. A single blue “spotter” balloon will hang in the middle of the grounds at 175 feet as a way to assist viewers in locating the red balloons. The blue balloon will not represent any height of the building. Town of Malta building and planning director Anthony Tozzi said the town is asking for more input because this will be the first fab campus to be seen from certain parts of Malta and Stillwater. “We definitely did a visual impact analysis [with the first Fab], but the conclusion was that Fab 8.1 wouldn’t be seen from anywhere except the Luther Forest Technology Campus,” Tozzi said.
