Further proof as to the small world we all live in, Sonny Bonacio has purchased the land in East Greenbush where the owners of our local casino had hoped to build a new gambling mecca in East Greenbush. Vigorously opposed by the locals there, it lost out to Schenectady. The 74 acres was offered for $2.5 million dollars following the casino debacle and as a sign of how fluid these numbers are, Bonacio picked it up for $1 million. What a deal!
In the meantime, the sound of construction has come to Moore Hall as the abatement for asbestos has begun there.
