Front page: 12.07.10 - NYC OTB's last chance and City Council will meet tonight

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend. If you haven't seen "Black Swan" yet (which I'd imagine is most of you since I had to go to Manhattan to catch a show), I highly recommend it. It opens in Albany Dec. 17.

Also, I hope you caught my stories on the City Council. The council will meet tonight starting at 6:45 p.m.
