Taste buds are set to tingle at the thought of a new Mediterranean style restaurant called Morgan & Co. Two recent TV stars Rebecca Newell-Butters and her husband Stephen Butters are taking on Glens Falls with their new restaurant in town.

Their culinary talents landed them on center stage in cooking shows called "Chopped" and "Sweet Genius." Now they are sharing that talent with us!

Stored Technology Solutions Inc. (StoredTech), a large provider of IT managed services, just relocated their headquarters to 543 Queensbury Avenue!

As the Glens Falls Region kisses their hometown hockey team goodbye, a new one shows up to brighten their spirits!

As announced back in 2012, the Adirondack Phantoms, AHL hockey team who have played their home games in Glens Falls since 2009, are moving to Allentown, PA. But that doesn't mean area hockey fans have to say goodbye to the electricity of hometown hockey games.

According to theahl.com, National Hockey League's Calgary Flames from Abbotsford, British Columbia will be moving their home base here to the Civic Center, beginning their AHL franchise this fall in Glens Falls for the 2014-15 season.

Any suggestions for a new team name or logo for the Calgary Flames? Both are based on their former location.

Remember that teacher in high school who would monotonously read their lecture to the class; never looking up, barely blinking, and only stopping to clear their throat? This particular teacher made a 45 minute class feel like an eternity.

Thankfully, there was also that teacher would make you look forward to their class. This teacher turned memorizing facts for a test into a game of Jeopardy and made learning the subject not only interesting but fun! Turning education into a lively and engaging activity makes a teacher's lesson effective as well as sparks the child's interest. 

The Chapman Museum, The Hyde Collection, and go! The World Awareness Children's Museum have done this and more; these local museums have collaborated with Head Start to create the "Preschool Passport Museum Program."
