LAKE GEORGE - The Adirondack Mountain Club appointed Michael Barrett as its new executive director, effective in November. The appointment was unanimously approved by the ADK Board of Directors last month. Barrett is a former U.S. Army foreign language interrogator. He later earned a law degree in 2002 before serving as an attorney to the state Assembly Codes Committee. He also held executive-level positions in both the administrations of Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson. After moving to Missouri, he worked as counsel to the Department of Natural Resources before becoming deputy general counsel to Gov. Jeremiah “Jay” Nixon, a job he held for three years before being selected as director of the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency. For the past four-plus years, Barrett served as the director of the Missouri State Public Defender System, which included functioning as both the systems’ lobbyist and public information officer. “Michael is a proven and dynamic leader with years Please see CLUB 4

New Northway exit for airport nears completion ByLINE: ERIC ANDERSON
COLONIE - New exit and entrance ramps are nearing completion on exits 3 and 4 of the Adirondack Northway, a project intended to improve connections between the interstate and Albany International Airport. State Department of Transportation officials are expecting the project to be substantially complete by Dec. 18. That’s nearly a full month earlier than the contract completion date of Jan. 17. DOT officials couldn’t immediately provide details on the timing of ramp
openings. The cost of the project, according to the DOT website, is $32.2 million. A project description on the DOT’s website says the work is on budget. The first of the new ramps opened without fanfare Sept. 27 to carry traffic from Albany Shaker Road to the southbound lanes of the Northway. By early last week, other ramps, including those on the new flyover, appear nearly complete. Drivers should notice improvements in traffic flow, according to DOT data. It estimates that afternoon traffic delays Please see AIRPORT 17

Saratoga Hospital moving offices to Wilton Mall ByLINE: BETHANY BUMP
WILTON - Saratoga Hospital announced Tuesday it plans to move several hundred employees and services to Wilton Mall in an effort to free up space at its main campus for patient care. The hospital signed a 10-year lease to occupy 56,000 square feet inside the recently closed Sears department store, where it will house “back office” functions that involve little to no patient interaction, such as IT services and medical record archives. The move will take about 18 months, and fill roughly two-thirds of the old Sears space.

“We’re fortunate in that we’re a growing community,” Saratoga Hospital CEO Angelo Calbone said. “We’ve also been developing services and programs over the last dozen years that have drawn people to the hospital. But now we’re out of space.” The mall was an ideal place to migrate services, Calbone said, due to the availability of parking and its location right across from the hospital’s Wilton Medical Arts building. Medical records from that building will also be moved to the mall, he said, opening up space for a new physician practice. The move will also benefit the mall, which has been in a constant battle for foot traffic as

legacy department store retailers continue to be shuttered and online shopping displaces brick-and-mortar shopping. “We are very pleased to welcome this concept to our established retail property in Wilton,” said Mike Shaffer, senior manager of property management at Wilton Mall. “This REPURPOSING of the former Sears space for hospital support functions represents a forward-thinking adaptive reuse of retail space.” Saratoga Hospital plans to add 12 to 15 new inpatient beds once the relocation occurs, on top of the 171 licensed beds it currently boasts at its Church Street campus.

HOSPITAL CONTINUED FROM 3
The effort to increase inpatient beds has been under way for more than a decade, as the hospital has sought to reduce the number of patients being held in the emergency department and in hallways for lack of beds. In 2007, the hospital converted one of its two nursing home floors to make space for more inpatient beds. In 2016, it closed the nursing home entirely to accommodate even more. In total, the closure allowed it to add roughly 30 beds, Calbone said. “It still wasn’t enough,” he said. “On many days we have nearly over 100 percent occupancy in the building. We needed some breathing room.” Unlike many hospitals, which are seeing fewer inpatient admissions and shorter hospital stays as care increasingly shifts to outpatient and home settings,

of success as an advocate and policymaker. We look forward to him joining ADK,” said John Gilewicz, club president. An avid outdoorsman and paddler, he will be returning to New York later this fall, along with his wife Sebrina, who is executive director of the Missouri Bar, his son Mason and his daughter Molly. “I look forward to building on the successes that have
Saratoga Hospital has seen its inpatient admissions climb. Calbone attributes this to two factors -- population growth and the hospital’s growing market share. Economic growth and residential development have attracted new residents to both the city and county in the last decade, with Saratoga County regularly leading upstate New York in population growth. Meanwhile, over the last 12 to 15 years the hospital has expanded services and developed surgical specialties in areas such as ophthalmology, bariatric and breast care -- nearly quadrupling its annual revenue in the process. This year, the hospital expects to approach roughly $450 million in annual revenue, Calbone said. The mall relocation project will cost roughly $10 million, he said. Bonacio Construction will oversee the renovations, which are already under way. firstname.lastname@example.org - 518-4545387 - @bethanybump
already been achieved by this incredible organization,” said Barrett. ADK’s previous executive director and current CEO Neil Woodworth, will be remaining for several months to help in the transition. Woodworth also will remain of counsel to ADK for the near future. “We thank Neil for his decades of service and his tremendous contribution, not just to ADK but to New York State,” Gilewicz said. rkarlin@timesunion. com - 518-454-5758 - @ RickKarlinTU

Quick and simple ways to make a front door pop
Visitors’ impressions of a home are often dictated by the home’s entryway. Must as one may judge a book by its cover, the same can be said about the impression that a front door and entryway can create, regardless of how accurate that impression is. Making certain changes to an entryway can go a long way toward improving curb appeal. Entryways also can set the scene for a home’s interior. Whether one chooses to be classic or bold, modern or traditional, there are various ways to quickly transform a home’s entryway. • Bold front door color: Color can dramatically enhance an entryway. Painting an existing door or replacing it with a more vivid option can do the trick. The DIY Network says certain colors stand out as favorites. These include turquoise, yellow, red, indigo, orange, and black. The door color should complement the other shades of the home, such as those on siding and trim. • Custom walkway: Guide guests right to the front door with an attractive (and safe) walkway. Stamped concrete or decorative paver blocks may fit the bill. This walkway can extend to the street or to the driveway. • Contain plants. Landscaping around the entryway should be neat and well-tended. Overgrown plants or shrubbery may give off an air of neglect. Container plants and carefully curated shrubs can create a neat and inviting aura. • Highlight the address. Make sure the home can be found easily with bold and decorative house numbers. Consider two different address signs: one illuminated and easily viewed from the curb, and another closer to the front door.

• Utilize high-end materials. The relatively small area of real estate by the front door enables homeowners to splurge on more opulent materials that can really add a feeling of luxury. These can include colorful tiles, ornate planters, decorative wooden doors, or elaborate knobs and lighting fixtures. • Add architectural details. Find out which architectural elements will meld with the style of the home and then incorporate them. Moldings, columns, shutters, and trim are areas to consider. The entryway to a home garners a lot of attention. Homeowners can enhance their spaces with entryways that really make a statement.
Easy ways to clean up leaves
Autumn is marked by colorful foliage and plummeting temperatures. Once those leaves reach peak color, they fall from the branches and collect on lawns, necessitating cleanup projects. For homeowners with big yards, such a project can be tiring and time-consuming. However, there are ways to make leaf cleanup easier. One of the easiest ways to clean up leaves is to reach for a lawn mower rather than a rake. The mower will cut leaves down to smaller sizes, creating an effective mulch that can add nutrients back into the lawn. Davey, a lawn and landscape solutions service, says that mowed leaves also can be collected in a mower bag and added to garden beds or compost piles. For those who prefer manual raking, select a rake with

tines that will not skewer the leaves in the process. Big rakes also can make faster work of gathering leaves into piles. The home improvement resource The Family Handyman advocates for the use of a lawn sweeper. This is a manual device that has a rotating sweeping brush that gathers up lawn debris and leaves into an attached hopper bag. Like mowed leaves, the bag can be emptied into a compost pile or distributed where needed. Raking leaves onto a large tarp is another option. Once it’s full, the tarp can be taken to the curb where many towns will collect the leaves seasonally. Otherwise, the tarp can be used as a funnel to put leaves into a gardening bag or another appropriate receptacle. Leaf blowers remain a fast option for cleaning up yards, but they require electricity or gas and can be noisy. Still, they are a popular choice for large landscapes or when quick work needs to be made of leaf clean-up. Leaves will fall in autumn, but luckily homeowners have various methods at their disposal to tame the mess.

Stroming, 60, of Stuyvesant run consecutive to a state term of imprisonment Stroming is serving, according to the U.S. Attorney's office, State Police and FBI. The federal sentence should begin in 2027, when Stroming's state sentence is scheduled to end. Stroming was convicted in May after a two-day jury trial. The evidence showed Stroming videotaped himself sexually abusing a 19-month-old and that he also had child pornography involving other children. At the time of the crimes, Stroming was required to register as a sex offender. He has sex offense convictions including for rape in the second degree (2011) and promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child (1999), authorities said.
'Grandparents scam' still investigated COLONIE -- The Colonie Police Department said last week it's still actively investigating the recent reports of a "grandparents scam," where scammers pose as a troubled family member to try to get money. There have been no arrests, but several leads have been developed that may lead to future prosecution of the responsible parties, said police, who
CLAVERACK -- A town of Claverack woman is charged with committing two separate home breakins at the same location within a five-day span, Columbia County Sheriff David P. Bartlett said. On Saturday, Sept. 28, deputies were called by a resident on Tishauser Road in Claverack reporting that someone had burglarized his home. Deputies and investigators that responded determined a "large amount of money" and a firearm were stolen. On Oct. 3 at about 1:23 p.m., deputies responded to another residence on Tishauser Road for a report of a woman trying to enter a parked, unoccupied vehicle in the driveway. Deputies found that the same residence from their Saturday call was burglarized again. The suspect ran off and deputies, police dogs and State Police tried to find her without success. A possible suspect was developed, and on Friday morning, deputies encountered her on Tishauser Road. Bartlett said she admitted her involvement in both burglaries to them. Selena McFadden, 22, of Tishauser Road, was charged with burglary, grand larceny, criminal mischief and petit larceny, arraigned and jailed in lieu of $1,000 bail. She is scheduled to be back in court at a later date.
Troy fire starts in camper trailer TROY -- Firefighters extinguished a two-alarm fire Friday afternoon that sent smoke billowing over a South Troy industrial area and the nearby
residential neighborhood around Monroe and First streets. The fire started in a camper trailer stored in a factory building on the north side of Monroe Street between the railroad tracks to the east and the Hudson River to the west, Fire Chief Eric McMahon said. Firefighters had the fire, reported at 3 p.m., under control within 30 minutes, McMahon said. A second alarm sounded because of the amount of smoke pouring out of the building and the size of the complex, McMahon said. The building is on the south side of the R.J. Valente Companies complex between Madison Street on the north, south to Monroe Street. The older factory building was being used for storage. It appeared attached to a more modern building on its west side. The camper trailer and some plastic appeared to have burned in the fire. The cause is under investigation. Troy firefighters were assisted by the Watervliet Arsenal and the Watervliet city fire departments.
Two airlifted after Providence crash PROVIDENCE -- Two people suffered serious injuries Thursday morning from a head-on car crash in western Saratoga County, the sheriff’s office said Friday. Two cars collided at about 6:30 a.m. on Potter Hollow Road in Providence. The sheriff’s office said investigators reconstructed the crash and are still working to determine the cause. The victims, who were driving the two cars, were flown by helicopter to Albany Medical Center Hospital, where they are still being treated. The sheriff’s office identified the two drivers as 27-year-old Michael B. Kennedy of Providence,

who was driving a 2012 GMC Sierra truck, and 43-year-old Christopher E. Edwards of Edinburg, who was driving a 2018 Dodge Journey sports utility vehicle.
Vandalism leads to trail closing HUNTER -- The state Department of Environmental Conservation on Friday temporarily closed a section of the Devil’s Path trail in the Catskills, after an episode of vandalism on the trail. The stretch of that wellknown trail is closed from the intersection of the Pecoy Notch trail to the Twin Mountain summit, in the Indian Head Wilderness Area. It was closed after recent vandalism of the steel rungs that were installed there in August. The vandalism has created a safety hazard for visitors utilizing this section of trail, according to DEC. Although the Devil’s Path trail will be closed on the western approach to Twin Mountain, hikers can still access the summit from the east utilizing the Jimmy Dolan Notch Trail from Prediger Road or via the Devil’s Path from Indian Head Mountain.
Guilty plea in cab driver shooting ALBANY -- An Albany man pleaded guilty to first-degree assault Thursday for shooting a taxicab driver earlier this year, Albany County prosecutors said. Thomas W. Allen, 25, was a passenger in the
taxi Jan. 19 near I-90 and Northern Boulevard in Albany when he shot the driver just before midnight. The driver was treated and survived, according to the District Attorney’s office. Allen faces 10 years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision when sentenced on Dec. 5.
Johnstown man gets 5 years in drug case ALBANY -- A Fulton County man who planned to sell about 1,740 bags of fentanyl-laced heroin was sentenced to five years in federal prison Friday. Victor M. Diaz, 30, of Johnstown pleaded guilty in June in U.S. District Court to one count of possession with intent to sell heroin and fentanyl before Senior Judge Norman A. Mordue. On March 7, Diaz was arrested after investigators discovered the potentially deadly drugs in a suitcase in his home. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Amsterdam police, State Police and Gloversville police were involved. In a pre-sentencing letter to the judge, Diaz defense attorney Danielle Neroni said her client -- the father of two children ages 6 and 9 -- “understands the magnitude of the mistake that he has made and upon release from incarceration, he will again live a law-abiding life that consists of working long hours and caring for his children.” -- Staff reports
