Former President Barack Obama stops by the Adirondacks

SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Former President Barack Obama visited the Adirondacks this week. According to a source at the Adirondack Regional Airport, President Obama flew into the airport earlier this week and left on Friday, June 22.

Richie Hewitt, an airport employee, says he spent a few minutes with the former president; the two talked about their daughters who both attend Harvard University.

It’s not clear why he was in the region.

President Obama is currently working on writing a book that will focus on his time as president.

Many presidents have spent time in the Adirondacks including both his predecessors, Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, as well as Calvin Coolidge, who spent the summer of 1926 on Osgood Lake.

57-year-old Cobleskill motorcyclist killed in crash

A motorcyclist was killed Friday afternoon, Cobleskill police say, when he hit a car that had failed to yield the right-of-way and was thrown from his motorcycle.

Cobleskill Police responded around 12:55 p.m. Friday to a report of an accident involving a car and a motorcycle at the intersection of North Grand Street and Elm Street. Police at the scene found the motorcyclist to be unresponsive.

After an investigation, police say they determined that a car driven by a 17-year-old Cobleskill teenager, was driving northbound on North Grand Street and made a left turn onto Elm Street, failing to yield the right-of-way to a motorcycle driving southbound on North Grand Street.

Police say the driver of the motorcycle, identified as 57-year-old Gary Collins of Cobleskill, was unable to avoid the car and hit its passenger side rear panel, throwing him from his motorcycle. Collins was taken to Cobleskill Regional Hospital, then flown to Albany Medical Center, where he died from his injuries later Friday evening.

Police issued the driver of the car a ticket for failure to yield the right-of-way. Police say there was no cause to believe that drugs, alcohol, or speed were a factor in the crash. 

Shen student Jacob Monday has passed away after battle with cancer

Jacob Monday, a Shenendehowa student who touched so many lives in his quest to fulfill his bucket list while battling cancer, has passed away.

Jacob passed away Saturday morning, according to the Facebook page chronicling Jacob’s efforts, and those of the community, to make Jacob’s wishes come true. 

The sophomore student received an honorary degree from Shenendehowa High School in a special ceremony in April.

Jacob also crossed another big item off his bucket list in April when he met one of his favorite actors, Chris Pratt, for a day of fun in New York City. 

Saturday morning’s Facebook post says “there was no one stronger, no one more of a superhero, no one who fought harder” than Jacob.

NEWS10 ABC’s thoughts are with Jacob’s family.

Albany Police fatally shoot man they say was stabbing his mother

Albany Police say an Albany Police officer shot and killed a 20-year-old man Friday night while responding to a stabbing incident on Partridge Street in the City of Albany.

Police were called to 61 Partridge Street around 11:30 p.m. Friday for reports of a person with a weapon on the second floor.

Police say someone at the scene told responding officers Elston Mackey and Derrick Ellis that a woman who appeared to be injured was lying at the bottom of the stairwell behind a locked door. Officers forced entry into the building by breaking a glass window in the front door and moving aside blinds. There they found an unresponsive woman with stab wounds to her neck and face. Mackey and Ellis then called EMS to the scene.

As Mackey and Ellis were checking on the woman’s condition, police say 20-year-old Schuyler Lake appeared at the top of the stairwell, armed with a knife, and began to walk down the stairs. The officers yelled at Lake through the broken window to stop and drop the knife, but police say he refused and continued down the stairs where he began to stab the woman again.

Police say Officer Mackey then fired several rounds at Lake to prevent him from stabbing the woman further, striking him several times. Lake was pronounced dead at the scene.

The female victim was identified as Lake’s mother, aged 52, and was taken to Albany Medical Center, where she is currently listed in critical condition. 

Another victim, identified as Lake’s uncle, aged 55, was found in the second-floor apartment with stab wounds to his abdomen. He was taken to Albany Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Both officers were transported to local hospitals, per Albany Police Department policy. They have also been placed on administrative leave while the investigation continues.
