In a newly released rating of fried chicken from coast to coast, The Food Network dubbed Hattie’s Restaurant one of the best spots in the country and the best in New York state for fried chicken.
“Hattie’s, in Saratoga Springs, has received many accolades for their standout fried chicken over the years, and even beat Bobby Flay in fried chicken on Throwdown! with Bobby Flay,” said The Food Network in its review.
As part of the Business for Good family of businesses, Hattie’s Restaurant aims to grow and amplify a community positive business, while maintaining the quality and character of its product, the vision of its present ownership, and the legacy of its founder, Miss Hattie Moseley Austin, the company said.
All profits of the Hattie’s Restaurants are donated to local charity, aligning with the Business for Good mission. Miss Hattie’s locations include Hattie’s Restaurant on Phila Street, Hattie’s Chicken Shack in Wilton, Hattie’s Track Shack at the Saratoga Race Course and soon-to-open Hattie’s Albany.
The Village of Ballston Spa’s Comprehensive Planning Steering Committee is conducting a community survey and is seeking feedback from residents.
The village’s consultant, Behan Planning and Design, has prepared an anonymous, online survey to help the public identify priority considerations for a comprehensive plan for the next decade. It asks questions about village utility infrastructure, housing needs, internet access, economic development and how the village should move forward for the future.
Residents and visitors to the village are encouraged to participate.
The survey can be accessed online at survey.zohopublic.com/zs/CrCz1s. Paper copies of the survey are available in the village office, the Ballston Spa Library, the Farmer’s Market, and at village events throughout August.
Paper survey responses should be returned to the village office at 66 Front St., Ballston Spa, by Aug. 23.
Behan Planning and Design will present the results at the Comprehensive Plan Public Visioning Workshop on Aug. 30, at 7 p.m. at the Saratoga County Office Building, 50 West High St., Ballston Spa, and through a Zoom link posted to the village website.
The American Heart Association has recognized Saratoga Hospital with “Gold Plus” achievement awards for its commitment to best practices in treating patients with strokes and heart attacks. Research shows these practices help save lives, reduce recovery times and prevent readmission to the hospital.
Saratoga Hospital, a member of the Albany Med Health System, earned two of the most prestigious quality achievement awards: The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association Get With The Guidelines; the Stroke Gold Plus Target: Stroke Honor Roll; and the Mission: Lifeline, STEMI Receiving Center – Gold Plus award.
Saratoga Hospital has received the Mission: Lifeline award for heart attack care four years in a row. The Get with the Guidelines stroke award comes less than two years after the hospital launched a telestroke program that gives patients around-the-clock emergency access to neurologists who have extensive experience treating strokes.
For both heart attacks and strokes, patients receive immediate emergency care at Saratoga Hospital. Patients who require higher-level services are then transferred to Albany Medical Center. The medical center is nationally recognized for cardiac care and is the Capital Region’s only comprehensive stroke center.
