Around the Region

What are they talking about in Gloversville, this week? Well I'm glad you asked. The top story in Wednesday's Leader-Herald is the arrival of strippers ---those are exotic dancers, folks, not people who refinish furniture. But the opening of the adult entertainment emporium Copperheads is not without controversy; Unless zoning issues can be ironed out, says the Leader-Herald, female dancers would "have to wear pasties to cover their areolas."

When I first read that, I thought it said pastries, which would be something I've never seen ---not even in Montreal.
