Capital City Trolley returns to downtown Albany

Trolleys are returning to the city of Albany.

The Capital City Trolley is back, and according to the Capital District Transportation Authority, it will be their first trolley service in the area to run year round.

“We are now offering in downtown Albany in addition to offering these trollies in Saratoga and Schenectady,” CDTA Dir. Of Communications Jaime Watson said.

Last year, CDTA had a pilot run for the trolley in Albany and offered free rides for only a few months. But with positive community feedback, the free rides are back with some changes to the routing.

“It’s running on a loop,” Watson explained. “It’s running on Washington Avenue. It is running on South Pearl Street, Madison Avenue – so many of the hotspots in downtown Albany.

The trolley can hold up to 30 people and have a few unique features that aren’t like their typical buses.

“These trolleys are a little more quaint,” Watson said. “So you see a difference in the seats. You will see a difference in the lighting. Even the wood paneling that is on the sides of the trolleys. It is definitely a more unique experience for the customers.”

With stops to attractions like the Capital Center, Times Union Center, and the Capitol, CDTA is hoping the service will be a fun way to get around town.

“In addition to the fixed route services that we offer that are running seven days a week, running the trolleys really complements that service,” Watson said.

Rides run from 5 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Voters to decide fate of transgender protections

The rights of transgender individuals is the center of controversy after a memo obtained by The New York Times shows an effort by the Trump administration to rollback certain protections.

In 2016, the transgender community had a big victory when a transgender rights bill was signed. The bill allowed those who identify as transgender to use restrooms and locker rooms based on their gender identity.

But that could all change after the midterm elections in November.

Jahaira DeAlto describes her life as pretty ordinary.

“I go to school and I work and I live and vote,” she said.

She also identifies as transgender. And her vote may matter more than ever as state laws could change, which would limit trans identifying peoples’ rights, including their right to use public restrooms and locker rooms.

“My fears are many and numbered,” she said.

On November 6, Massachusetts voters will either vote Yes or No on Question 3. A Yes vote will keep trans protections in the state. A No vote will repeal the 2016 law.

“I worry about living in a world where accessing a public bathroom could be considered a criminal act.”

Using a public facility could find her in prison with fines of up to $50,000 for multiple offenses.

“I’m an ally to the trans community and really honored to count trans people as my friends,” Jennifer Wahr said.

Wahr looks at the vote as a message to the nation to reaffirm the state’s stance on trans protections.

“I’m really excited that we get to vote this year to vote to uphold our current law to protect transgender people against nondiscrimination in public places,” Wahr said.

“It is those who choose to stand in the light that oftentimes become a target for those who seek to darken it,” DeAlto said. “I choose to take that mantle on and I welcome anybody who wants to come to the party.”

Those who are against the law said it infringes on their rights. They’re also worried about predatory behavior in the bathroom.

If the bill is rescinded, it could set a precedent for less liberal states to also rollback rights.

Spectrum rates to go up next month

Spectrum cable customers’ monthly bill is about to go up.

According to a Spectrum spokesperson, Spectrum Internet will go up from $54.99 to $59.99/month for current customers who subscribe to Spectrum TV. Spectrum Internet will go from $64.99 to $65.99/month for current customers who do not subscribe to Spectrum TV.

For any customer whose Spectrum Internet service is part of a promotion, the new price won’t take effect until after their promotional period ends. And, there’s no change to package prices of Spectrum TV or Spectrum Voice.

This is on top of rate increase 2 On Your Side reported on Thursday, which includes the Broadcast TV surcharge going up from $8.85 to $9.95/month and Spectrum receivers going from $6.99 to $7.50. The the Latino View add on that will go from $7.99 to $8.99.

This will not make many Spectrum customers happy, who have complained about the company’s service from shoddy cable service to the lack of broadband, especially in rural areas. The New York State Public Service Commission has said Spectrum, since acquiring Time Warner Cable two years ago, has failed to roll out broadband fast enough, frustrating people who don’t have it.

According to a letter Spectrum’s parent company, Charter, sent to some local cities and towns, the company says “Like every business, Charter faces rising costs that require occasional price adjustments.” And that customers will be told about the price increases through “a bill message on or after October 1, 2018.”

The letter says the new prices are “Effective on or after November 1, 2018.”

Spectrum says that the price increases are happening in all markets that Spectrum operates — the company is in 41 states.

102-year-old Red Sox fan excited to attend her 4th World Series game

If you ask Mary Latowski why she loves the Boston Red Sox so much, she’ll tell you she has no idea, but they’ve been a big part of her life since she was 14 years old.

“And I’m still here at 102,” Latowski said Monday.

Latowski said she would listen to the games on the radio while riding the bus home from school. When she arrived, she’d head straight to her brother’s shop to give the workers there an update.

“They couldn’t wait until I got in the shop to get the scores,” Latowski recalled.

Latowski said she’s been to three different World Series games to cheer on the Red Sox, including games in 2004, 2007 and 2013. She lived through the entirety of the team’s 86-year championship drought and was hoping to attend another World Series game this season, until she had a stroke three weeks ago.

“I couldn’t even walk,” Latowski said. “But at least I can walk now. I’m not 100% but I can still walk with a walker.”

Latowski cheered the Sox on from her bed at Kent Hospital and a couple days after they won the pennant, her grandson made her a promise.

“My grandson was here on Sunday and he said, ‘Grandma, you better get ready for the fourth World Series, because I’m taking you,'” Latowski said. “I said, ‘I’ll do my best,’ and I did. So even if it’s in a wheelchair, I’ll be there.”

After weeks of recovery and rehabilitation, Latowski expects to be discharged on Tuesday so she can attend Game 2 on Wednesday. She said this is something she thought wouldn’t be possible.

“I thought I would never go,” Latowski said.

“It takes a strong individual to be able to come in completely debilitated, unable to stand, unable to sit up straight, completely dependent on all of her care, and then at 25 days have the ability to get to a Red Sox game,” Luke Davis, executive director of Rehabilitation Services at Kent Hospital, said.

Latowski said she was able to attend a game at Fenway Park last year, sitting along the first-base line and leaving with a ball caught by her favorite player.

“It’s a thrill – the biggest thrill,” she recalled. “I went last year and got a ball that Mookie Betts caught.”

Latowski said she’s grateful for the staff at Kent Hospital for helping get her back on her feet. She said no matter what life throws at her, she won’t let a health scare strike her out.

“I really tried my best so I could go, and move my feet so I could get in a car, and get out of the car and get in a wheelchair and get to Fenway Park,” Latowski said.

Latowski has seen a lot of different Red Sox teams in her 102 years, but said she believes this year’s team is the best she’s seen so far.

The Red Sox will face the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 on Tuesday, with first pitch scheduled for 8:09 p.m. at Fenway Park.
