Here are three of the latest text scams that are currently circulating through the Capital Region.
The Capital Region has been a hotbed lately for New York Lottery's Take 5 winners. The latest winner comes from Saratoga County and I am convinced that it's just a matter of time until I am cashing in a Take 5 winning ticket. I have to admit I was a bit bummed it wasn't me when I found out where the ticket was sold.
Columbia County is boasting the latest Take 5 winner in the New York Lottery. This time someone won the top prize of forty-five thousand dollars. The winning ticket was sold for Saturday night's (July 31st) drawing at a busy convenience store.

So, what's going on with the Crossgates Best Buy? Anyone?
I haven't driven by Crossgates yet to check it out. I initially read a headline by the Times Union made it dramatically sound like Best Buy is closed for good. And look, who knows- with all the events of 2020 and economic circumstances- it very well may happen eventually (as much as I hate to say that about any store)...
It seems that the only thing anyone is talking about is the Coronavirus. There are many negative conversations swirling around the outbreak. Now there may be a silver lining in the decline of gas prices.
Recently there was a major settlement due to a breach from Equifax. You could choose from up to one hundred twenty-five dollars or three years of credit monitoring. Now they are saying you should have chosen the monitoring because you may never see that money.
We could all use a little extra cash. It's always fun when you don't even know it's out there. You can check to see if there are billions in unclaimed funds in New York state with your name on it. Here's how.
You know when every Disney movie came out on VHS, you had to buy it, but then, we moved on to DVDs and then streaming. Now, you have a ton of Disney VHS tapes and don't know what to do with them, right? I have good news for you!
Another one bites the dust! Yet another clothing store is shutting down, impacting the Capital Region.
While it seems like the trend of store-closings is less than last year (that's my impression, I don't know the statistics), it still hasn't stopped...
Two Upstate New York casinos are struggling. As a result, they’re going to be cutting back on slot machines.
I’m not a gambler unless it’s the slot machines, so this caught my eye (just like the lights and sounds of slot machines do)...
The Albany Capital Center may be only a few years old, but it's already getting some more major renovations.
By major renovations, I mean 500 thousand dollars worth. According to the Times Union, the Albany Capital Center is doing so well with business that they need more space...
An Albany area college student is competing on the Wheel of Fortune tonight!
I caught wind of this from a post by the Times Union, and of course now have to root for one of our own. Logan Stone, competing tonight on the Wheel of Fortune, is a junior at the University at Albany...
A big chunk of change is going to be spent on New York roads.
$128 million to be more specific. Governor Cuomo announced the funding to help resurface New York roads, according to cbs 6 albany. To me, this is definitely something that’s needed...
I always say that someday I will win a ton of money on either a scratch-off or in the lottery. It seems that more Capital Region residents are cashing in. There was another winner that scratched their way to $5 million.
But seriously, this is now one huge reason why dogs are “man’s best friend”!
